Rift Guild Perks Guide

Now even guilds have talent points. Our latest Rift guide explores the guild perk system.

One of the most important vehicles for social interaction in MMOGs is
found in the form of the guild. Guilds are as varied as the players
that inhabit them, and no two players will have the exact same
expectations from a guild, but long gone are the days of guilds being a
passive entity. While the idea of allowing guilds to level up and
progress with their members is a relatively new one, it has spread
through the gaming community like wildfire and style="font-style: italic;">Rift is one of the
new breeds of MMOG that has embraced it.

In style="font-style: italic;">Rift, guilds level
up by earning experience points, similar
to the way that players do. As levels are gained points are earned,
these
points can then be spent on various upgrades known as perks. The only
way to earn guild experience is through various quests that high
ranking guild officials can accept on behalf of the members. 

Perks
are divided into two categories; active and passive. Active perks can
require a reagent to use and most have a cooldown timer. Passive perks
are constant additions that help improve various aspects of gameplay
for members.
