A guild bank is typically some storage method in-game for the purposes of holding items and money to be shared among guild members.

Guild bank characters

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. So you might want to have the guild bank character on the account of a reliable, loyal member to manage.

Official guild banks

As player-controlled guild banks were subject to many issues like hacked accounts, in-guild grievances, as well as Terms of Use violations due to account sharing, Blizzard is implementing guild banks in patch 2.3. [1]


In-game guild banks have been enabled as of Patch 2.3.

  • Access to the guild-bank via a Guild Vault object next to the standard bankers in the game. [2]
  • Players with the appropriate permissions can store items and money for use by the rest of the guild.
  • 6 purchasable tabs which have 98 item slots each, bags are not required for the slots. Prices start at 100Gold, then increasingly for the next tabs, 250Gold, 500Gold, 1000Gold, 2500Gold, 5000Gold).
  • Storage of money.
  • Repair NPCs will 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. The limit amount is in copper (not gold as the UI shows).
  • Access-logs in-game showing the 25 latest money or item related withdrawals/deposits per tab.
