Alright so it starts in the guild menu, top left corner next to refresh will be another button labelled “upgrades”.
Clicking this reveals a screen much like stat training window. There are 6 different boost categories, each with 2 bars that are being filled. One bar is for upgrading, the other is for activating.
You can donate to either upgrading or activating the category with “guild coins”. These are materials that can be found in game, rarity of about a jewel, or purchased at a limit of 10/day per member for 10,000 gp each. In addition to donating guild coins, activating (but not upgrading) can be accomplished in an alternative way for each category, as described below.
Activating each bonus requires 1000 guild coins and/or activations. The upgrades raise in cost per lvl, and make the activations better. Each activation lasts 24-48 hrs, and while it is active it glows and can not accumulate further activation points until it wears off. All of the buffs are guildwide. When the activation bar fills, it wont actually turn on unless a guild officer activates it.
Gain an activation point when anyone in the guild gains a level.

Average level of all 6 boosts can can increase maximum guild capacity. Ie all your boosts are lv2 and you have 22 slots in guild. This can motivate people to not just focus 1 boost too hard.
It is both noob and high lvl friendly, you can dump gold on it but do not have to. For example, low rb guilds will easier get the exp boost to activate but it might be lower level. High rb guilds that mostly train will activate the training boost easily, and so on. It rewards activity of the guild, while letting some players gold dump to a limited degree for slightly faster upgrading.
Can add fluff to it by calling them “totems” or “favour of the gods” or what have you, let duncy think it out.
I dont think this is too complicated to implement and it is keeping things as simple as possible while still being fun and rewarding activity and team play. Also some room for new content rewarding guild coins.
Thumbs up or down please for the general idea, i have some ideas for the UI if we want to proceed in this direction.
