so in leu of the new system changes coming for Heart of Thorns, I have purchased a massive amount of Influence Points for the guild to max out our research levels all to 6. Soon, I plan on buying upgrades. The research takes a very long time though, with level 6 taking 10 days, and only allowing two things to be researched at once. This has been a long time in the making, trying to earn IP by hand and all. I feel like an idiot for not having done Economy sooner, which gives all sorts of guild buff.
I personally can't wait. We have been a guild since the launch of the game, and it's taken us this long to see the upgrades we've wanted.
Stay tuned for more.
