Guilds are a group of 10 players that work together to meet a goal set in the game in a certain time period. These competitions have rankings based on points in the games.
Preparing for Guild Events
Guilds do timed Events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, for some of you it may be Saturday, Sunday and Monday, to obtain Basement keys to search the rooms and boss rooms. They always start at the same time. These events are timed so if you complete the event in the first 11.5 hours you will receive 100 keys for each room of the Basement and 5,000 Coins. The reward then decreases with a mark at 17.15 hours and 23 hours. Most guilds try to complete in the first time frame.
For me in the Pacific Time Zone my events start at 9 am or 10 am depending on Daylight Savings Time and I think I have it the best because my 11.5 hours is always during my day time giving me the most hours. For others half of that time is the middle of the night! Some guilds like everyone to be in the same time zone.
If you are a lower level player and don’t spend a lot of time searching and building up your inventory it’s a good idea to go through your keys and roamer weapons to see what you might be low on for these events before the event hits. You can charge many Collections to get keys and weapons. Also, keep an eye on your chargers in case you need them to charge the collections. Preparation ahead of time saves a lot of stress at event time.
There are 3 types of Events:
- Banishing a set number of listed Roamers – To prepare for this event if you are a member of the Fun Page Super Sleuths I have created a Roamer Banishing Calculator for Banishing Events. Here you can see all the Events we are aware of and enter the number of weapons in your inventory to see how many you can banish.
- Battling a Boss – GI picks a Boss and the guild usually need to banish him 40 times. With 10 guild members you would each do 4. You will need the keys to enter the battle, weapons to complete the battle and 2 diamonds once you’ve completed the battle to go back and battle the boss again. This is necessary to close the room and get back to the battle stage. Again in order to prepare for these battles I have created a Boss Battles Summary Sheet for the members of Fun Page Super Sleuths. The sheet lists all the bosses their battle and search keys and their battle weapons as well as points needed to win a battle.
- Occasionally, instead of Battling the Boss the event just asks you to open Battle Chests that you’ve won. If you’ve saved up some of those chests it’s a quick easy event.
- Searching Rooms – These events can be time consuming and many guilds skip them. There are options given for room search events.
- Search a certain list of rooms listed. Generally you are given 4 rooms that you can choose from. These rooms require you to use your inventory of keys and often are Boss Rooms so you need to battle the Boss to open the room.
- Search rooms in a certain mode such a Night or Silhouettes. This event may seem easy to begin with and I think the number if 400, so 40 for each guild member, but the mode you need to search in rarely shows up and you may need to search 300 rooms to get your 40 in the required mode. These can be done in the central First Floor Rooms that do not require keys.
- Random Events – GI is trying to mix things up and they have done some odd events.
- Open 40 Chests from Arena Battles

OPENING THE HOUSE OF UNITY
On the first floor game screen, a new building appears outside the manor walls to the right of the laboratory. If you tap on the new building, you get a message stating: “To join a guild, build the House of Unity.” (Therefore, this new building is the House of Unity.) Tap on the House of Unity and a screen appears with a long text about hiring builders. Ignore this. Just tap “Buy” and pay 3,500 gold and you are done!
MYSTERY MANOR GUILDS
You can access guild features by tapping on either the House of Unity or Guild icon. Each guild has a maximum of 10 members and one leader, whomever created the guild. You have the option to (1) make your own guild or (2) join an existing guild.
If you choose to make your own guild, you will first need to choose a guild name, choose your guild’s avatar, and enter a guild description (optional). Next, you will have the option to invite friends to join your guild. Apparently, only the creator of a guild can invite friends to join his/her guild.
If you choose to join an existing guild, you may receive a message that the guild already had too many requests so try to join a different one. Once a guild accepts your request to join, you must wait for the guild leader to decide to confirm you as a guild member. You can only be member of one guild at a time, so if you get tired of waiting for the guild leader to accept you into his/her guild, try to join another guild and tap on the orange “you must withdraw your existing guild request” button.
Once you have created or have been accepted into a guild, you will see a screen with 4 tabs every time you tap on “Guild” or the “House of Unity” on the main game screen. The first tab, “Guild,” lists all the guild participants, their game levels, their statuses (either leader or participant), and lastly points. Thus, we conclude that the purpose of the guild is to get points! You can also see your guild’s place in the ratings, cumulative guild points, and number of guild members at the top of this screen. The next tab, “Chat,” is a place where you can communicate with other members of your guild and also includes updates about the “goings on” of your guild. The next two tabs, “Events” and “Shop,” don’t have any info yet but will soon.
HOW DO I GET POINTS FOR MY GUILD?
The guild will be able to gain points by working together on special events that have not started yet, but I am told, will begin very soon. When the first special event starts, Game Insight will publish info about the guild in the Frequently Asked Questions under the Information icon on our main game screen.
Currently, each guild member can get 5 points by checking this screen each day. You can also receive 5 points by creating a guild. Some players may be inclined to join guilds, unjoin guilds, and join others to keep checking the chat window to get 5 points again and again, but at this time, I don’t see the point (no pun intended) in doing this. The real action will happen when the event begins.
If you tap on the Ratings icon on the main game screen, a new section has been added for the guilds with 3 categories: progress, experience, and players. Currently, there is a lot of speculation about how the top guilds have achieved so many points because the lowest level players have the most points! I suspect that these players may be developers or testers. If not, they are insanely persistent players who repetitively create, leave, join, unjoin guilds 24/7!!
I took this from the Facebook page. I will comb through comments later to see what needs to be added. As usual, all of your comments help me make the pages better. Sometimes I won’t post them, I’ll just take the information and add them to the page.
GI Gives Us a Facebook Note on Guilds
GI has written a Guild Note on their Official Facebook Page giving us information about Guilds. I find these notes are a great source of information so have a look through for their explanations and give them a thumbs up to let them know you appreciate the information and guidance.
