The guild vault without being purchased

A guild bank is an in-game storage interface for holding items and money to be shared among guild members.

Official guild banks

Blizzard-supported guild banks were introduced with patch 2.3 to help reduce player-created guild banks, which were prone to Terms of Use violations due to account sharing.

Features

The guild vault seen by the guild leader
  • Access to the guild bank via a guild vault object next to the standard bankers in the game.
  • 8 purchasable tabs which have 98 item slots each; bags are not required for the slots. The price for the first tab is 100g, and increases for each successive tab, 250g, 500g, 1000g, 2500g, 5000g, 10000g and 20000g for a grand total of 39350g.
  • Storage of money.
  • Players with the appropriate permissions can store items and money for use by the rest of the guild. The guild master can allocate different permissions to each tab as required.
  • Repair NPCs have a 'pay for repairs from guild funds' button based on guild permissions (up to withdraw limit).
  • Advanced permission system (defaults to controlled by guild leader) that can allow, disallow, and limit the interaction (deposit/withdraw items or money) per tab, per guild rank. Withdrawal limits can be set up.
  • Access logs in-game showing the 25 latest money- or item-related withdrawals/deposits per tab.
  • Web access and display via World of Warcraft Armory.[1] Requires login.[2]
  • Where to find the guild vaults.

Garrison

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.

Players building their garrisons while on Draenor that desire access to their guild's bank should consider building a level 2 Storehouse. The Storehouse is classified as a small building.

Guild bank characters

Main article: Mule (game term)

A character used as storage and/or a trading post by the members, usually accompanied by a web-based script to post the contents online. Bank rules depend on the guild; there is no set of default permissions.

NOTE: It is not recommended that multiple guild members log into the guild bank account, even if it is more convenient to manage and disperse items, since this is a violation of the Terms of Use according to Blizzard. Due to the many potential issues involved with this approach, it is highly recommended that guilds spend the gold on the official guild bank instead.
