What is a Guild?

A guild is a group created by like-minded people to enjoy the game together, where they can gain the benefits of various perks, including Guild Skills, Guild-Exclusive Items, and Guild Activities. You can create your own guild, or request to join another guild to enjoy special adventures with friends (and make new ones!).

Creating a Guild

You can move to the Guild Base: Hall of Heroes through Lea in each town or through the Guild UI.

Guild UI

You can bring up the Guild UI with the default hotkey [G].

If you have not joined a guild, you will be able to search through guilds that are currently promoting themselves, or search for a specific guild, and request to join them. If you are a member of a guild, whether one you created or joined, you will be able to see your guild's information and various actions.

If you are not yet a member of a guild:

If you are a member of a guild:

MapleStory Guild UI

  1. Join Settings: Allows Guild Leaders to set the guild's preferences, such as main activities, active time, age group and other factors, to let other players looking for a guild know if your playstyle matches what they're looking for.
  2. Guild Information: Displays the guild's Guild Points, number of guild members, and Guild Leader.
  3. Guild Ranking: Displays the guild's rankings such as Weekly Honor EXP Rank, Flag Race Ranking, and Sharenian Culvert Ranking.
  4. Greeting: You can write a Guild Greeting to be displayed to Guild Members and potential new recruits (up to 150 characters, 75 special characters).
  5. Check-in: You can check in your attendance once per day, granting additional Honor EXP to your guild based on the number of Guild Members who have checked in. You can also select [View Attendance] to see which guild members have checked in that day.
  6. Leave Guild: You can leave the guild by pressing the [Leave Guild] button, and will immediately leave upon confirming with the subsequent [OK] button.
  7. Your Activity: You can check your rank within the guild and the Contributions you've earned for the guild.

Guild Contribution

When a guild member takes part in various activities, they gain Contribution Points and Honor EXP for their guild, increasing its level and earning them 3 Guild Points (GP) for every 10 Contribution Points earned.

MapleStory Guild Contribution Points

You can gain Contribution Points via the activities below:

ContentHow to ObtainContribution Points Earned
Flag Race (3 times a day) Participation Reward 50
Sharenian Culvert (Once a week) Participation Reward 1,000
Attendance Check (Once a day) Attendance Check 30
Boss Raid Boss Battling See Appendix
  • You cannot earn more than 5,000 Guild Contribution Points per day.
  • Once a guild reaches Lv. 30, Honor EXP is no longer accumulated. However, the earned Honor EXP is still counted towards the guild's Weekly Honor EXP Rank, and also earns the player Guild Points (GP).

TIPS:

  • With the Attendance Check, the guild can earn additional Honor EXP based on the number of members that check in each day.
Members Checked-InAdditional Honor EXP
15+ members 50
30+ members 100
60+ members 1,000
100+ members 2,000

Guild Points (GP)

Guild Points (GP) are used in various places, such as Guild Advertisements and Guild Megaphones, as well as Guild Expansion, Guild Emblem change, and more.

A grid of ancient Sharenian waterways, long thought to have disappeared long ago, have been rediscovered. Explore the culvert with explorer Daedal, and face the demon Arcanus, who is sleeping in the deepest parts of the urban dungeon!

Flag Race

A good, old-fashioned race to the finish line all on one map. Follow the course as it's laid out, show off your platforming excellence, and complete it three times to win!

Guild Ranking

MapleStory Guild Rankings

You can check the guild's Weekly Honor EXP Rank, Flag Race Ranking, Sharenian Culvert Ranking, and more in the Guild UI. Some time needs to elapse for Sharenian Culvert runs to register in the rankings.

TIPS:

  • The rankings can also be viewed through an Honorable Rock located in some towns.

Guild Unions/Alliances

MapleStory Guild Alliance Menu

Note: MapleStory's UI uses "Guild Alliance" and "Guild Union" interchangeably. Both are valid, and mean the same thing.

A Guild Alliance (or Guild Union) is a group created by like-minded guilds, to create an alliance of up to 5 guilds. When you become a Guild Alliance, you can chat through Alliance Chat even between different guilds.

How do you make a Guild Alliance?

You can create a Guild Alliance through Lenario in Guild Base: Hall of Heroes.

MapleStory Making Guild Union

The Guild Alliance can be created with at least 2 Guild Masters in a party and by paying 500,000,000 mesos. You can have up to 5 guilds in an Alliance. The leader of the party when a new Guild Alliance is created will become the Alliance Leader, so make sure the right player is the party leader! Guilds can leave Guild Alliance at any time, and can only be a member of one Guild Alliance at a time.
