Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Guests are a recurring system of temporary computer-controlled party members in the Final Fantasy series. They typically join the party during set points in the game's plot, and then leave shortly afterwards in another point in the plot. Guest characters do not usually take up space in the player's party, though they might appear in the menus. So if the game only allows for three party members in battle, a Guest can be a fourth fighter outside of the player's control. Their abilities and equipment usually cannot be customized either.

Appearances

Final Fantasy III

Guests will join the party but are not treated as regular characters. In battle, exclusively to the Nintendo DS version, they appear at random intervals firing off a random attack from their set list of moves. The rest of the time, they will not appear and not do not have HP or other stats that enemies can attack. If the party is defeated, it is still GAME OVER with or without the Guests. Outside of battle they can be talked to with File:Y-button.png, the only method the player has to interact with them.

Guest characters in Final Fantasy III include:

Final Fantasy XII

In Final Fantasy XII, Guests act exactly as normal playable characters, only that they are controlled by the computer. Their equipment, Licenses, and Gambits are outside the player's control. Guests will level up like normal characters, and Ally oriented Gambits will apply to them. They do not have Quickenings and are completely ignored during Quickening Chains. In the original Final Fantasy XII, Items used by Guests are infinite and do not affect the player's own inventory; this was changed in the International Zodiac Job System version where those items now do come from the player's inventory. Guests typically have weapons that are completely unique to them and can never be found by the player for their own use.

Guest characters in Final Fantasy XII include:

There are other characters in the game that will fight on the player's side, but these do not appear in the Party Menu and act completely independently of the player's forces.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Guest characters are designated by a goldenrod HP bar. They may fight on the party's side, but never have access to Summoning Gates and Esper Troupes. Oftentimes, defending a guest character is key to a mission's success.

Guest characters in Revenant Wings include:

  • Giza Rabbits in Mission 04: The Coveted Derelict
  • Llyud (later joins the party as a player character) and Ansei in Mission 07: The Winged
  • Aegyl in Mission 11: Savagery
  • Rikken, Elza, and Raz in Mission 16: Pirates in Peril!, Mission 17: Pirates and Parrot in Peril!, and Mission 19: Filo in a Bind
  • Velis in Mission 21: The Man in the Jungle and Mission 23: Object of Desire
  • Penelo (who later returns as a player character) in Mission 24: The Dance
  • Fran (who later returns as a player character) in Mission 27:At Fran's Side
  • Dalmascan Soldiers and White Hares in Mission 35: The Secluded

Final Fantasy Tactics

Guests act in menus exactly the same as any other Non-Generic character. The player can customize them as much as normal characters, like with Job Class, and equipment. However, the player cannot decide when to use Guests or not. It is mandatory to use them in certain battles. Guests will only fight in the Story Battles, they will not appear in random ones. They also run completely on computer control. Most Non-Generic characters fight in battles first as a Guest, then as a full Party Member.

Guest characters in Final Fantasy Tactics include:

  • Agrias (later joins as a full Party Member)
  • Gaffgarion
  • Ladd (later joins as a Generic Party Member)
  • Alicia (later joins as a Generic Party Member)
  • Lavian (later joins as a Generic Party Member)

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to Guild Roster article)

From GuildWiki

The Guild Roster is the roster containing all guild members and guests. It includes the following information:

The Guild Menu screen
  • Player names
  • Player ranks (Leader, Officer, Member, or Guest)
  • Last time each player was on logged in

Contents

Ranks

Leader

A Leader is the leader and, by default, founder of a guild, and has the most administrative powers. A guild can only have one leader at a time. A leader can do anything an officer can, in addition to the following:

  • Demote and kick guild officers
  • Change the guild's cape design
  • Disband the guild (must be the only person in the guild)
  • Promote someone else to leader (which demotes themselves to officer)
  • Buy or change a Guild Hall
  • Join/leave alliances

Notes:

  • If the leader chooses to leave their guild, then they must first promote somebody to leader before they can leave.
  • If the leader has not logged on for two months, he or she will be replaced with the officer who is online the most often. If there are no officers in the guild, then the leader will be replaced by the member who is online the most often.

Officers

An Officer is a position of authority in a guild roster, able to make more responsible decisions than regular guild members, but not impose major changes on the guild structure. Officers can do anything a guild member can, in addition to the following:

  • Make announcements
  • Kick members (not officers) out of the guild
  • Promote other members to officer
  • Invite players to the guild
  • Give guest status to visitors
  • Add NPCs to the Guild Hall
  • Authorize a rated GvG match by their presence.

Members

A Member is the lowest-ranking permanent member of a guild, who can enjoy the privileges that a guild provides, but not make any changes that affect the guild or other members. The only things a member can do are:

Guests

For 100 gold, a guild Leader or Officer can invite a guest to their guild. Guests can access that guild's Guild Hall and fight in GvG battles with that guild. However they won't see the guild chat of the guild they're a guest of. Guest invitations last between 8 and 16 hours and a guest will remain a member of their old guild (if they have one) while the invitation is active.

  • Guests cannot view GvG battles for the guild they are guesting in observer mode, even if they participated in the battle.
  • Guests from the opposing faction can enter Alliance Battles on the side of the guild they are guesting.
  • Even during their guest period, guests do not enjoy any benefits provided by being a guild member (such as use of Kurzick/Luxon faction) other than those described above.
  • Members of a guild which is part of an alliance have privileges in the other guilds of their alliance similar to those that guests would have in their own guild (with the exception that these privileges are permanent)

Using the Roster

Adding & Removing Members

If you are the leader or an officer, to invite a member, first open your guild window, by pressing G on your keyboard or by using the menu. The guild window shows the roster of officers and members, as well as their online/offline status and an approximate time showing when they were last online.

From there, simply type in the name of the person you wish to invite. If they are offline, it will send the invitation as soon as they log in. If they accept, they will show up in the guild roster as a member. Inviting members to a guild costs 100 Gold.

If you should want to kick someone out of the guild for any reason, click on the icon to the left of their name in the guild window, and select "Kick [player name] out of guild." This process is not directly reversible; if you change your mind, you'll have to reinvite the member in question, which will cost you another 100 Gold. You must be the leader to kick out officers.

It is generally considered bad form to ask your new recruit to pay the membership fee.

If your guild owns a Guild Hall, you can issue a "guest" invitation to a player for the same 100 Gold fee. A guest invitation allows the player to compete on the side of your guild in Guild vs. Guild combat for up to 8 hours, after which the invitation expires. While someone is a guest of a guild, they still retain their membership to their true guild.

There is a guild cap of 100 members and officers, although guests can still be invited when at the cap.

Promoting & Demoting

To promote or demote a guild member, the guild leader use the menu found by clicking the icon next to their name on the roster. Officers can promote members to officers, but not demote other officers.

Quitting or Disbanding a Guild

You can leave your guild by clicking the icon next to your name on the guild roster and choosing "Leave Guild."

If you are the guild leader, you must first promote an officer or member to the position of guild leader before you're allowed to quit.

If, as guild leader, you wish to disband your guild entirely, you must first kick out every member individually. Once all members are removed, you can then click the icon next to your name, and select "Disband Guild".

Note: Disbanding a guild will permanently erase all the guild's achievements, including guild rating, faction, and Guild Hall (together with any purchased NPCs)

Other Info

  • If a player was admitted into the guild under a different character name than the name he/she is currently logged-in as, an "also known as" tooltip will be displayed when the mouse cursor is hovered on his/her name. Additional information displayed will be the last time the player has logged in, who they were invited by, and their promotion/demotion history.
  • For GvG battles, at least one officer or leader is required to start the match. For the Guild Rating change for a GvG battle to apply to a certain guild, the majority of the players on one of the teams must be in that guild.
