Maybe it is also beneficial to mention that:
Castle holders get 2 sets of Instant Refinement Stones (Instant Weapon +10, Armor +10)
Fortress holders get 1 set of Instant Refinement Stones (Instant Weapon +10, Armor +10)
Not to mention that Castle and Fort holders also get zenny from tax revenue! (Around 30k Zeny a week for Fortress, Castle holders can get a lot more!)
These facts are important to reiterate, because apparently I met some players that are familiar with WOE and their guild holds a fort/castle but never even heard of these rewards from their guild.
Indeed that's something that should be included in more guides and tutorials about WoE in RO2 to spread awareness. Seems a lot of people attend WoE yet ignore these things and, because of that, they don't bother asking about rewards or anything else.
This is a personally opinion and suggestion, but I'd wish the WoE reward system wasn't so limited and controlled by few hands in each guild. As it is, its like devs prefer to leave the distribution of these rewards only to guild leaders to do whatever they want with them, and its not exactly a fair amount; its not like you can give rewards to everyone in your guild who deserves it, sadly :/ Not to mention I don't like so much the tax revenue reward going only to few limited hands. There should be a system were all those who attended WoE for a guild get equally and individually rewarded without the need of guild leader handling said rewards; of course, this has to be tied to WoE times, otherwise people could forever skip them and still be rewarded, and thats a bad bad thing. I'm barely expressing a wish of an idea, I have no planned suggestion or any complete idea about how this "fair reward system" would work. Perhaps it can spark a little discussion about it~
