The Elder's Recommendation is an item needed to level up a guild to level 5. The item code for this item is
The elders are other players of the game, chosen by the devs to be elders. Once a guild reaches level 4, the guild commander has to write the text "
Elder's Recommendation" in their main castle chat. Once this is done, the Captain Arthur bot (@ChatWarsArthurBot) answers with this message:
Well, well... Looks like you need the Elder to guide you on the path of a true leader. Try to find eldestElder from Butterfly Castle.
The following task is to find and contact this elder. Once the guild commander contacted them, the elder will give them a riddle or puzzle to solve before giving them the final task.
Do note: The chosen elder is linked to the current guild commander. This means that the elder might be different if a guild commander change has taken place. The new guild commander will have to repeat the process again, to confirm whether the required elder has changed.
Trivial note: Guild leader of guild level 5+ is able to find out who their leader is, by typing
Elder? in main castle chat. Currently, for guild level 5+, there is no known purpose for the elder.
The Elder's task
The final task is to find the earlooms of a specific castle. The Elder will receive the following message upon activating the quest for the guild, and may forward it to the guild leader.
A challenge for the guild has begun. The guild has to collect: sharkteeth earlooms x 30
The amount that is needed varies and the target castle for the earlooms is randomly chosen from one of their allied castles. For each guild member who successfully attacked the required castle, one earloom is awarded to the guild warehouse. To view the stock, the command
/g_stock_misc can be used.
Once the required number of earlooms is reached, the guild commander has to report back to the Elder. The Elder will then convert the earlooms into a
Elder's Recommendation, which the guild requires for leveling.
The Elder will receive the following message upon processing the completion of the task.
Quest completed. You provided recommendation for the guild leader
The guild leader will receive the following message, after the Elder has processed the completion of the task.
You recieved recommendation from the Elder
Spoiler: The number of earlooms required is correlated to the number of guild members (in the guild) when the Elder starts the earloom quest!!! To get a smaller number of earlooms for the quest requirement, ensure that your guild has very few number of members in your guild, before talking to the Elder to start the quest! The currently known lowest number of earlooms is 30 (for a 3 member guild), whereas the currently known highest number of earlooms is 59.
Trivia note #2: There was a guild
TEL who encountered an Elder (
g_deposit 25 400 from
DIE guild) that "could not be found", because that Elder refuse to let himself be known to others. The guild spent months figuring out who the Elder was.
Trivia note #3: Guild tag must be created before the Elder is able to start the earloom quest. The command used by Elder to start the quest is
Trivia note #4: Elder can check the progress of the guild by using the command
