New Guild Hall Amenities – Standard Bearer & Wizard Spire

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance, Grouping, Raiding

While we don’t have all the details on what perks will be available to Guilds reaching the new level 90 cap, we know that Game Update #55 will add 2 new Guild Hall Amenities.

The first is pretty straightforward. It’s a Wizard Portal NPC with all the destinations available from the Ulteran Spires. It does not include the Kingdom of Sky zones of Tenebrous Tangle, Barren Sky, or Bonemire: Realm of Dawn. You’ll still need that amenity if your guildies are making regular use of these zones.

The second new Guild Hall Amenity is the Guild Standard Bearer. If you’ve ever been on a group or raid and just didn’t have the right setup. If only you had a little more oomph, more defensive stats, more DPS, etc. you could clear the zone and claim your reward.

The Guild Standard Bearer is a bit like a vending machine, selling (at a steep platinum cost) zonewide buffs to your allies within a group or raid instance. No doubt there will be more items added to this amenity over time.

Updated Notes from Beta (added Friday, Feb 5th)

  • These are only usable in Instances.
  • They are not usable in Battlegrounds.
  • We can expect more Standards to be added.
  • Only one can be active inside a group dungeon or raid zone.
  • Hopefully before Sentinel’s Fate launches, the descriptions for these items will contain specific numbers such as amounts of bonuses, etc.

    Judging by the prices on them, it’s something i doubt i will be using very often.

    For 48p you’d think they’d give a better description of what the “soulquench” standard does. Maybe im just missing it but i have no clue what it does

    It’s currently non-specific since it scales to level of dungeon. They want to put a better description before live.

    Can you sell the standard back or is it a “use it and lose it” kind of an utility item?

    How long do the standards last?

    I think the items are worth it…
    e.g. “Standard of Statistics” give +200 int, wis, agi and str…
    Didn’t check the rest yet. They remain forever until the instance expires…
