You can now create your very own Guild on the Sea of Thieves! While a perfect name for your Guild is essential, you’ll also need to consider your Guild’s crest, colors, and motto to entice potential Guild Members to sail in your fleet!
Once you own a Captained Ship, you can create, customize, and build your Guild!
Create a Guild
As a Captain, you can create a Guild from the ‘Guilds’ section in the Main Menu. You must be a Captain, as you need at least one Captained Ship to pledge to the Guild when you create it.
While you must be a Captain to create a Guild, anyone can join the Guild, whether they are a Captain or not.
If you see the “No Ship Available to Pledge” message when you try creating a Guild, you’ll first need to purchase a Captained ship.
You can also only belong to three Guilds, so you won’t be able to create a Guild if you are already in three.
Your first step to creating your Guild is to customize its branding. You’ll choose the Guild Crest, Guild Mark, Guild Colors, Guild Name, and Guild Motto.
You can change any of these options as the owner after you’ve created the Guild. However, you must purchase a Renaming Deed from the Pirate Emporium to rename your Guild.
You’ll have eight Guild Crests, 38 Guild Marks, eight Guild Colors, a custom Guild Name, and 53 Guild Mottos.
Your Guild Name is not unique across the Sea of Thieves but can be 20 characters long.
Once you’ve customized your Guild’s branding, you will confirm your choices and then pledge one of your ships to the Guild.
Pledge a Ship to the Guild
To create a Guild, select one of your Captained Ships to pledge to the Guild. A Guild can only exist with at least one Pledged Ship.
When you pledge your ship, you can share it with Guild Members, allowing them to sail on your vessel without you. However, you can also prevent other Guild Members from using your ship.
You can only pledge a ship to one Guild at a time. So if you only have one Captained Ship pledged to another Guild, you won’t be able to create a new Guild.
Pledging your ship will move from your Captained Ships to Guild Ships. So if you want to sail on that ship, you’ll have to sail it representing the Guild. You can remove a Pledged Ship if you change your mind.
Once you confirm the ship you wish to pledge, you’ll get a quick overview of your Guild’s Permissions.
There are three roles a Guild Member can have: Guild Owner, Guild Leader, or Guild Mate.
The Guild Owner can customize the permissions Guild Leaders and Guild Mates have, including whether they can change the roles of others, invite new recruits to the Guild, or remove Guild Members.
Guild Owners can also rebrand and transfer ownership of the Guild.
Confirm Your Choices
After reading over the permissions you’ll be able to confirm and create your Guild! As soon as you’ve created it, you can start to invite friends or view the Guild.
