FIXED Housing - Guild Member Access

So, I thought this was inaccurate for awhile. Did a little research and turns out setting "Guild Member" access for items and storage containers in player-owned homes should be... well... more accessible.

If you scroll down this page to where it talks about "Item Security" and setting access, it states:
"Guild Members – this option only appears if the house owner is in a guild. Any character who is in the same guild as the house owner named on the house sign, even if not friended to the house, will have access provided that character holds a rank of Member or above in the guild. Ronins will not have access, even if friended to the house."

What this means is that ANY character who is in a guild should be able to set items or storage containers in their home to "Guild Member" access. Currently on Heritage, I believe that privilege is reserved only for guild leaders who are also the owner of that home (not verified.)

As you can see, I am in my Luna home and trying to set the access on a chest. I am not given the option to set access to "Guild Member," despite the fact that I am in Empire of Zeal (and an emissary, no less!)

Please make this change, as right now trying to run a guild without it is a huge pain!

Gotcha. And keep in mind, the "owner" of the house is the actual owner, not the implied owner (ie, those on the same account).

Well, that may require more exploration as well. Right now, as the co-owner of a home, I can set literally any access level from "Owner Only" down to "Anyone," but still can't set anything to "Guild Member." Probably worth checking exactly who should be able to set what to what whether it's owner or co-owner, guild leader, guild member, etc...

Co-Owners can set Owner only, meaning only the them and the owner can access, not other co-owners. Since players can be in multiple guilds on one account (for the guild setting), it has to go by the actual house owner, if that makes sense.

BUT... what if the co-owner is in the same guild as the owner? Should that co-owner be able to set guild access?

Okay. Regardless, am I understanding it correctly that the REAL owner of the home should have the option to set "Guild Member" for access on items and storage, and since that is currently not the case, it is something that needs to be fixed?

Although, I guess I still don't understand why it's an issue for co-owners in the same guild as the owner of the house to also be able to set guild access. If that's "just the way it is" then fine, but it doesn't really make sense to me.

Always found it strange people that are co-owners cannot set something to guild access if they are not the guild leader.

You have to be the guild leader and the owner of the house currently to set Guild Access as far as I can tell.

Yep. The way i read it, is it has to be the house owner, and a member of the guild. Currently is has to be the house owner AND the guild leader.
