The Guild — What We Know Thus Far
The Guild is a brand new feature in Mystery Manor — something we have never seen before! Here is what we know thus far:
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 willpublish info about the guild in the Frequently Asked Questions section 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.
