    With fighting being a cornerstone of pirate life, it's always good to get an added attack boost. So we've included a new upgrade level for the Blacksmith building, and it's in the game right now! Just like all Guild perks make sure all your members are contributing, and once active, unleash hell.

    Some may call it an unfair advantage, we like to think of it as classic skullduggery.

    In the instance that you've just started a guold and tbe only mber is yourself, will the perk still work?? @chris

    No you will need other members in the Guild as one person cannot fund the perk building 100%

    Anyone familiar with how it works if your perk building is level 2 and other members might be on level 1?

    You will receive the benefit associated with the level of perk building you have on your island

    Thank you Chris, let me clarify my question. If I'm at lvl 2 Stonemason, and donate 40K gold for 5%, do the guild members with lvl 1 Stonemason receive 5% of theirs or the equivalent of 40K gold (40%)?
  7. They recieve 5%.

    Word of warning. The price to fund the Blacksmith is quite a high jump from Level 1 to 2. Goes from 5k for 5% to 40k for 5%. When you only have a few members in your guild, your gold resources can take quite a hit. Ouch.

    Totally agree Walker! I'm going to wait until the guild is full of contributors before I upgrade. As I now, I'm trying to contribute the max amounts to help the guild out.

    And it's such a high price for only +2 more on attack.

    Does it work in reverse too? If I have a level 2 blacksmith and all other members have level 1, do their percentages tramsmit to me equally?

    Ohhh, good question Gangrene! Hope someone has the answer!
  14. If I understand your question right the answer is already given in this thread.
    Say your guild consist of 50 members, 25 of them have Blacksmith level 1 and 25 BS lvl 2.
    If someone with a lvl 1 BS donates 5% so 5k in everyones BS the amount grows with 5%
    If someone with a lvl 2 BS donates 5% so 40k in everyones BS the amount grows with 5%

    Does this answer your question?

    It does, but then this leads to a secondary question; why would anyone with a level 2 Blacksmith donate if there are plenty with level 1 to donate? It saves the guild a lot of gold by just having level 1's donate.

    My gold storage is almost always filled at 2 million+. It's grog that I have to work for (academy and voodoo research needs). Funding the stonemason and blacksmith (level 2) for my 50% are no problem. The gold storage will fill backup on my next few raids.

    I still use any extra gold for walls, but @Gangrene Beard makes an excellent point...cheaper to let the lower people fund it. Hell, I would give then the gold if I could!
  18. Gangrene Beard

    Gangrene Beard Commodore

    Yeah...considering I'm at 40k per wall and the next is 125k per wall, I'm going to need all the gold I can

    i agree with u i made myselsf this question beforei am now upgrading to level 3 and the donation will be 80k of gold.... well till level one or two i was able to donate for let's say 20% without many problems... after i will think about it a little longer

    Is it confirmed that the guild perk upgrades are not cumulative? Meaning that L2 Blacksmith is only +7 attack instead of +5, not +7 in addition to the L1 +5 benefit?
