Guild Season 8 begins on Saturday, February 1st. Read on for important dates, plus information about what's new this season and how to earn Season Points. Season 8 Changes Season 8 will be a more traditional season in terms of its structure. However, all the new mechanics and the new world will keep it exciting and fresh. The focus of this season will be on the new Open World Territory Battles, Crystal League and Castles. Additionally, we have also increased the total Guild Challenge Levels to 99. This season will have no Open World Bosses to award season points, and will instead focus on guild warfare. The dynamic of open world territory control, Crystal League, and the entirely new Outlands continent will make sure Season 8 will be exciting and new.
