    Hey everyone, we've made a few updates to our rules. We think you should take a few minutes to read through them once again.

    ↓↓↓Please read the changelog in spoilers.↓↓↓

    In-Game:

    We've noticed a lot of confusion surrounding rule 18 and have received a lot of questions about it ourselves which we have not been able to answer. After a lengthy discussion between multiple moderators and several members of the guild community, we have reviewed our options and exactly what impact they would have on the guild community, and we've rewritten the rule in order to be as fair as possible for everyone:

    Old:
    18. Do not use alternate guilds or sub-guilds to maintain territory.

    An alternate guild doesn’t have to be owned by a person’s alternate account. This applies to any guild being used to capture territories which are then allowed to be captured by a main guild.

    New:
    18. Do not purposely prevent a territory from being attacked.

    Stalling wars to maintain a territory and preventing other guilds from attacking them is against the rules. Normal warring, with no malicious intents, is not affected by this rule. Sub-guilds are allowed so long as they are not used to break rules.

    (Stalling a war: Keeping a territory under attack between guilds by persisting in a war without killing any mobs or leaving mobs alive purposefully to extend the duration of the war, thus preventing the territory from being taken by other guilds.)

    Old:
    3. Do not abuse bugs, glitches or exploits.

    Any behavior of the game which is unintended by the developers and gives the player an advantage or can otherwise be exploited is a glitch. Showing or sharing any information about a glitch or an exploit with another person (other than moderators or QAs) is not allowed and will be punished for. (Leaving the map, obtaining illegal items, duping, bypassing restricted areas, bypassing territory cool-down, and using colored text in chat are some examples.)


    Not knowing that something is a glitch is not an excuse and can be punished. If you are unsure if something is intended you can send a private message to one of our moderators. If you find a glitch and report it to us you will never be punished provided you don’t use it afterwards.

Showing or sharing any information about a glitch or an exploit with another person (other than moderators or QAs) is not allowed and will be punished for if done by any player (Leaving the map, duping, possession and distributing illegally obtained items, bypassing restricted areas, bypassing territory cool-down, and using colored text in chat are some examples.)

    Old:
    4. Do not curse at, insult or harass people.

    Includes bypassing words that are censored. Swearing is fine, as long as it is not abused and not directed at someone. (This includes, but is not limited to, racism, sexism or sexual harassment, belittling players, ignoring requests to stop annoying them, making fun of mental illness and other psychological issues that one may have.)

    Old:
    8. Do not keep or trade vanilla items.

    This includes abusing glitches to obtain them and selling/buying them. If you get one by accident just throw it out.


    Default Minecraft items that lack the lore that Wynncraft items have (For example a Wynncraft Rotten Flesh item will have “Junk item” as lore, a vanilla one will not)

    Items that are renamed and / or retextured by the Resource Pack but are otherwise a vanilla item. (For example, a vanilla wooden plank will appear as a water wand.)

    Old:
    12. Do not buy or sell in-game items for real money.

    Using real life money, or something worth real life money, to purchase an in-game item from another player. This includes selling/buying Wynncraft store items for items in-game or selling art or services for real money using our platforms.

    New:
    12. Do not buy or sell in-game items for real money.

    Using real life money, or something worth real life money, to purchase an in-game item from another player. This includes selling/buying Wynncraft store items for items in-game or selling art or services for real money using our platforms. Breaking this rule directly breaks the EULA, which will never be tolerated, and which will be punished for, accordingly.

    Old:
    13. Rules regarding alternate accounts.

    Alternate Minecraft accounts are allowed to be used ingame. If one of your accounts breaks a rule they will all receive the same punishment.


    You are not allowed to do the following on an alternate account:

    Assist the guild your main account is in or is allied with in any way, such as attacking territories faster using the alt.


    If you are banned, you are not permitted to use an alternate account to continue to play, as this is ban evasion.


    Anyone who you willingly give access to your account may use the account as if it is their own. Additionally if the account violates any Wynncraft rules it will be considered an offense against that account regardless of who was using it. For these reasons sharing accounts is highly discouraged.

    New:

    15. Refunds Policy.

    We cannot refund items that are acquired in-game, no matter how they are lost. For any problems with items (packages) that are purchased through our store, please contact us at [email protected].

    We cannot refund items that are acquired in-game, no matter how they are lost. For any problems with items (packages) that are purchased through our store, please contact us at [email protected].
    Any items shared between accounts will belong to the account holding the items regardless of initial ownership. Entrusting other players with your items will put you at risk for not receiving them back and will not be refunded.

    Old:
    9. Do not advertise.

    YT and Twitch is fine through PM. You are allowed to talk about any of these, but giving a direct link/IP in the goal of only advertising isn't tolerated. (This includes but is not limited to YouTube Channels, Twitch Streams, Minecraft Servers.)

    New:
    9. Do not advertise.

    Wynn-related content (including but not limited to: Wynn videos, Wynn streams, shops and other threads on the Wynn forums, etc.) on YouTube and Twitch is fine through PM. You are allowed to talk about any of these, but giving a direct link/IP in the goal of only advertising isn't tolerated. (This includes but is not limited to YouTube Channels, Twitch Streams, Minecraft Servers.)

    You may advertise Wynn-related content or guilds through shouts up to once per hour and up to three times per day. It must be your own content and, in the case of a livestream, you cannot switch to another game, server or otherwise within an hour of shouting. Once again, external URLs are not permitted, but you can ask people to /msg you for the link.

    15. Selling Unidentified Items

    Selling unidentified Mythics is not allowed. Legendary and below is fine. If a player sells an unidentified item with a promise that it will be a certain item, and the item turns out to be a different item than is advertised, a refund must be given, as it would be considered scamming. Additional information is given in this thread.

    I assure you there's very little debate in the guild community, warring with alts isn't something that should be allowed and should be explicitly stated as not allowed in the rules. There's a very good reason it was changed to be bannable ages ago (speaking as someone there when that happened) and no one wants to see it back.

    Semi related to this bit:
    what if someone were to buy something for you and then charge back? It would just perm ban you and you can't do anything about it right? Seems a bit unfair... I know this is a hypothetical right now as I haven't experienced this, but it has/could happen to others. Imo there should be some solution, like an accept menu in game etc.
    Is there a solution already? Please inform me if so

    so.... what y'all are saying is:
    a) rule 18 is still a joke
    b) you guys admit to renaming "junk" to "crafting," therefore, the 1.18 update was worthless (this is a joke this is a joke this is a joke)
    c) we can now deal un-id'd mythics

    I think the addition of "unrevealed" means that if a mod like Wynntils reveals what the mythic will become once id'd, it's not against the rules to sell it.

    Clarification from @Hitoro on why the extra word was even added would help understand what the change means.
