New GRB???

When is it coming?
Well, with all these discussions about insane GRB scores, leaders suddenly finishing 2nd or 3rd. GvG, and what not about random bonuses being applied at the end of the GRB.

It is obvious that it is time for the new GRB system to be implemented so guilds have to figure out the new system, and then spend months and months optimizing their strategies to figure out how to become the new leader.

When the new system comes into play, all the guilds will have a fair and equal chance at winning the GRB instead of the few guilds that have developed a canned routine.

This new GRB system was promised on numerous occasions to be implemented by the end of 2012. Since the GRB is the single most important event this game has, it is time to bring it online.

Also, before the merge, there were 4 servers with 30 guilds getting ranked and receiving the benefit of having a guild house. That is a total of 120 guild houses per side. Now it was cut down to a measly 30 per side. Lets expand the number of guilds that can rank to receive a guild house.

i think we should have 60 guilds receive a rank and the top 15 should get med merch and blacksmith.

How about some guild rewards that make doing GRB actually worth doing? As it is now, the merchants sell nothing worthwhile, and the linking bonus is barely helpful. What other benefits to a gh? A fe pages of wh space and some gatekeepers? Not worth my time.

Yeah well, the rewards should be way higher to make it worth it, for example:
+10% link, 3x enchant at guild blacksmith (and no server-wide bonuses)
- Avalon pots and Avalon Super pots at liquid merchant
- in guild rank based GWH managing (like rank 3 able to take out from page 3, rank 4 from page 4, etc.)
- gatekeepers to Theodores, Regnum, KI, map 1/2/3 dungeons, 15/30 PvP, GRB
But suggestions won't get implemented anyway, especially if KN already has it up...

Also "since the GRB is the single most important event this game has"...it's the last thing that we want to see bugged (which always comes with all updates)...

The guild houses definitely need a total revamp, and this should be followed up by how the GRB works. Prestige is all well and good, but actual advantage is even more worth fighting for. I do things those advantages should still come the current tiers though, to avoid monopolizing key resources that the Guild Houses might offer. I also hope the current bonus points system will be removed.

I suggested way back when we were having those initial server crashes at GRB time to expand the list anywhere from 50-100 along with expanding raid size to 50 (which is something a lot of us have been eluding to for awhile now)...it's all about WHEN Nexon sees this as something of a priority... I would hope it is something that they are considering when implementing the New GRB system/maps...anything less, would be uncivilized Razz

It would be nice to have better rewards in the GH.

Back in the EP2/3 days, the level 5 lapis was all there was in the game. With no bless the link rate was 1 to 5% and with full bless it was 6 to 10%. A 1% blacksmith bonus was helpful, a little. But today's lapis with essentially 0% linking regardless of bless of GH blacksmith, etc, linking is still almost impossible. I would be nice have a better linking formula for the new lapis in the game.

But the nature of the game has really changed since then. I used to take the whole guild to get Old Willow and it would take most of the GRB to do it. But now with the level 80 people with enchanted gear to the max, Old willow is a solo kill these days.

The GRB needs a major revamp for the state of the game as it is now. Because the difficulties in the boss killing is essentially gone, the only thing to do is develop optimize killing strategies to get the most mobs down as possible during the GRB.

A new GRB is desperately needed, and we all (well most of us) are eagerly waiting for it more than any other new map in this game.

Well What you said is True but There shouldn't be that Much % linking. Because Guildless People Will have to join a guild in order to link their gear When they prefer to do Solo. Also I will have to agree With you at the Gatekeepers But not at the Dungeon porting. Each Map has It's own Dungeons so tht wouldn't be a problem Becaus ewhen you port to Go to map 2 for example you can go to the dungeon Fast because there is the Gatekeeper next to The Gatekeeper that takes you out. Also about GWH Managing It is good that they have the rank 1 and 2s managing it because in Big guild there is not much space and If someone from the guild which has rank 4 and can have access to Page 4 at GWH and there is a valuable item there He will take it and Then It will be hard to find out who did it.

Also About the Guild House It would be good wehn AG would Take out all the Merchants and then witht he rank of the guild he can pay the Etin Manager and then after going again to GH he can see the merchant. That would be kinda fun but Also Aeria Games or The PMs can change the styling of the guildhouse every 10 ranks. Just furnish it and stuff.

What I would like:

2 different Guild Warehouses. The first one only for officers, and the second one for all members to use.

It would also be cool if we could get a Guild Notice Auction board. Where guild items or guild member item can be sold to the guild only. It would allow guilds to provide services or items internally on their own.

Well, there's a plenty of singleplayer games as well...and there's always PLH or OP Smile
We have done linking years ago when there was no bonus, and it was good enough too. It's just a bonus, afterall.

About dungeon porting, it's the same - I would take it away from normal maps and put it into GH.
GH (if with fully upgraded gatekeepers) should be a key point in porting anywhere, it already has FL and CT, yet it misses all EP5/6 stuff.

GWH is small, that's true...but who actually needs to store much stuff there?
If more ranks would have access, there could be some newbie gear in last page, some lapises in the next one, and so on, free to grab for whoever needs it.
Edit: or 2 GWHs as Mandatar suggested ^^
Also some MMOs (Tera) are logging the GWH manipulations, that would be nice to implement.

And yeah, new looks, and changing looks after upgrades would be great Smile
Also setting up shops in GH...
