Joining a Guild in Albion Online

The first and biggest advantage of joining a guild is you will get access to territory and island own by your Guild, you can build your home guild’s island or on their territory, and you can store your store loot on the Guild’s storage.
If you join a well-established guild, then you will get a set of rules and list activities that Guild perform as all well-established guilds welcome their new guildmate by educating them about their guilds objectives and rules. So, you don’t need to waste your time figuring out everything by yourself, and if you are lucky, then your Guild will invite you to their party whenever they go out on the ganking, PVP battel or any other activity.
Then again, like everything joining a guild also has downsides. The most obvious and biggest disadvantage is that you will not have any power when you join a guild as a new player, so you have to follow each and every rule created by the guild owner and senior members. There could be some rules that you will hate it completely, but you can be kicked out of the Guild if you don’t follow them.
The another biggest disadvantage of joining a guild is some guild force their players to participate in some activity like ganking with guild members or taking part in ZVZ and PVP battles. If you don’t show for these activities, then you might be kicked out of the Guild after one or two warnings, and the last disadvantage of joining the Guild is guild taxes. It is quite normal in Albion online that Guild charges taxes form their every member and in return, you can use their resources like island and territories. But there are some guilds which charge 25 to 30 percent tax and do not own or control any territory, then why are they charging the tax? Now, let’s look at the benefits of creating a guild,
