This topic will keep track of our guild hall, upgrades that are being worked on and materials needed for doing so.
First, I would like to focus on building and upgrading a Workshop, which will give us two nice boosts that last for 24 hours. Once we unlock them, they will be free and applicable anytime.
These boosts are:
Critical crafting - means higher chance of receiving critical success when crafting, which means you save on materials and therefore you save on gold.
Critical harvesting - higher chance of critical success when you harvest from a node, which means extra materials.
Map bonus - means more loot.
By upgrading a workshop, we will also unlock various nodes for daily gathering in our guild hall (ore, plants, leather). Again, more loot = more money.
Materials needed currently: Vials of Linseed oil or flax seeds and Elonian leather squares.
If you wish to donate, you can speak to NPC (guild treasurer) right next to a central waypoint and donate directly to treasure. Treasure will only accept materials in certain forms. For example: Elonian leather square is a component made by bunch of different leather types. However, in order to build a workshop, we need Elonian leather squares among other thigns, so treasure only accepts that at the moment and won't accept the materials that Elonian leather square is made of. Same with Vials of Linseed oil, which are made from flax seeds. Treasure wants final product, which are Vials and won't accept just flax seeds.
Therefore, if you wish to donate just materials, instead of whole thing, which can be pricey, you can do so by putting materials into guild bank and not guild treasure.
So, in short - if you have Vials of linseed oil, put them in treasure, if you have just flax seeds, put them in guild bank.
