SWTOR Guild Perks and Guild Levels Guide

A guide to the new SWTOR guild perks and guild levels being introduced for patch 5.10.

Revamped Guild Window

The first thing to note is the newly redesigned guild window. It has four tabs: general, roster, perks, and ranks.

General tab give you a good overview of guild activity and conquest leaderboard for guild members.

Roster have not changed much from the older version. Pretty much identical

Perks is completely new in 5.10 and will be expanded on below. Note that to use guild perks you must own a Guild Flagship and unlock the various rooms in the ships. Guild flagships have their prices lowered from 50 mil down to 15 mil.

You can now set custom ranks and give specific permissions for each rank you set.

Guild Levels

Guilds can now earn levels. Guild levels are earned via conquest points with every conquest point = 2 guild XP. There is a weekly cap of 8 million guild XP (4 million conquest guilds) that only very large guilds will reach. It is expected that guilds that are hitting the Small Yield Planetary targets will be gaining ~ 3 levels per week.

There is no cap to guild levels but hitting above level 65 will not unlock additional benefits other than Guild Commendations. As a guild gain levels, they will also earn XP, Reputation and CXP bonus up to a max of 15% for XP/Reputation and 10% for CXP.

Key Milestones

  • Level 6 – Guild reaches 10% bonus XP and Reputation
  • Level 12 – Guild qualifies for Tier 2 Guild Perks
  • Level 32 – Guild qualifies for Tier 3 Guild Perks
  • Level 40 – Guild has capped XP and Reputation Gains at 15% bonus
  • Level 49 – Guild qualifies for Tier 4 Guild Perks
  • Level 51 – Guild has capped CXP Gains at 10% bonus
  • Level 64 – Guild qualifies for Tier 5 Guild Perks (current highest tier)
  • Level 65+ – Guild will continue to earn Guild Commendations but there is no gameplay benefit beyond level 64. There will be cosmetic rewards that may be introduced in a later patch tied to Heraldry that will take Guild Level into account.

Guild Perks

Basic Info

To use guild perks you must own a guild flagship. Flagship costs have been reduced in 5.10 from 50 mil to 15 mil. Perks are part of “nodes” on flagships, which are unlocked as you unlock additional rooms on the flagship. Each node will have a selection of perks available for purchase. Bridge nodes are unlocked automatically by default.

Nodes

  • Bridge 1
  • Bridge 2
  • Engine Room
  • Starboard Command Room
  • Port Command Room
  • Forward Command Room

Purchase Currency

There are three types of currency used to purchase guild perks

  • Credits
  • Guild Commendations
  • Reinforcement Modules

Guild Commendations are earned in two ways: when the guild gains a new level (5-10 per level) and when your guild reaches an Invasion Yield target

  • Small Yield – 70 Commendations
  • Medium Yield – 80 Commendations
  • Large Yield – 90 Commendations

Reinforcement Modules are acquired by combining 10 Reinforcement Components. These components are BoP and acquired in various ways

  • As a part of completing your Weekly Yield Target.
  • A rare chance to acquire during harvesting if you have the “Harvesting Yield I / II / III” Guild Perk equipped.
  • Can be earned by completing specific Heroic Missions on Ossus if players are in a Guild group with the “Ossus Reinforcement” Perk active.

Perk Types

There are two types of perks: Core and Cycling. Core is always available and typically only cost credits. Cycling guild perks are only present for a few weeks and are typically more powerful with more purchase requirements.

Set Bonus

Perks belong to one of five set bonuses. This adds another layer of choice as you can either pick the best perks or pick perks that fit into a set bonus

  • Prestige Set Bonus: Increase CXP, XP, and Rep earned by 1%. In addition, healing an ally or preforming a damaging attack on an enemy both have a 1% chance to grant a Mastery Surge for 30 seconds. This effect can only occur every 30 minutes and will not be triggered in PvP
  • Power Set Bonus: While in a guild group, your basic attack does 20% more damage and grants companions a Power and Healing Surge whenever the controller uses an adrenal. In addition, grants small chance of summoning a powerful attack that decimates your enemies. This effect is not applied in PvP
  • Health Set Bonus: Increases healing received by 5% and reduces the cooldown of all in-combat resurrects by one minute. In addition, grants a small chance to pop a shield bubble when taking damage that would put you below 20%. This effect is not applied in PvP.
  • Quickness Set Bonus: Grants 5% increase to Alacrity and a 1% chance to proc an Alacrity Surge after taking damage, greatly increasing your Alacrity for 20 seconds. Can happen once every 30 minutes. In addition, grants your companion an Alacrity Surge whenever you use an adrenal. This effect is not applied in PvP.
  • Luck Set Bonus: Increases critical chance by 5%. In addition, increases Efficiency and Critical Chance for all professions by 2%. This effect is not applied in PvP.

Keep in mind that perks with the same name cannot be used together (i.e. Gathering Efficiency I and II does not stack)

    Interesting

  • grind grind grind !

  • How any ranks I can set ? I though there will be some info about heraldry (emblems , banners or somthing)

    • AbnerDoon

      I think they said that would not be in 5.10 but maybe a future update.

  • Fubarz
    • Barloc

      1. Spoilers for people who haven’t read the datamined dialogue.
      2. Not exactly relevant.
      3. Why would you spoil it for some people?

      • Fubarz

        Why not ? People can chose. It’s not like the Emperor is here to say you are Bad, then lights his saber up 😛

        • Barloc

          Just saying, since there’s literally a spoiler in the video title.

        • Petan

          You are right. People can choose… Why not you ask? For me the reason would be, because I choose not to be an asshole.

          Obviously, your choice was a bit different.

          • Fubarz

            Interesting… I get something from you tube to post. Were anyone one can see it that does a search on SWTOR. You feel my posting was an A..hole move ok. Since it was already posted I did not. But will concede I should of put Spoiler Alert. Have a fun day 🙂

            • Murder Toys

              your a bit of a prick tbh for linking this even if people did nt want to know the youtube title say about his return . u like posting youtubes in most of dulfy posts

              gg

              • Fubarz

                Like the saying goes to each their own right or wrong

    • Vincent van der Laan

      finaly miss my old grumpy sith

  • LOL everything in this game is a massive credit sink and/or over engineered to the billionth degree for no good reason. Look at the guild perks in Destiny 2. How much glimmer and made up currencies do they require? Oh yeah… none. Just play the game. That’s it.

  • Meelis S

    More grind 😀
    Temporary boost. Man why i feel so happy ditching this game long ago. I dont mind grind but this?

  • Wait, did they take away the passive guild xp bonus and re package it into a grind? If so, fuck that

    • Trackrick

      I imagine there are a lot of guilds out there that would never see the full 10% the way things are now. This lets the smaller guilds have the max% (eventually) without having to whore themselves out to strangers to build up membership, while letting the big guilds regain their full max% in a few weeks and never have to worry about losing it if the membership dwindles. Plus, the max goes up from 10% to 15%

    Guild Ships cost is down now from 15 mil to 8 mil
