Create a Guild and you will have your own personal Guild page, which will allow you to participate in online Guild rankings, access the Guild's exclusive HomeTown, and more. Once you create your Guild, you can pick your favorite character as a concierge (Guide) by purchasing a Concierge ticket item.

Your concierge is a sort of Guild mascot that helps run day-to-day operations by managing your guild's HomeTown, its guild tokens and GeoStones, and providind information about designated quests.
