I'm still a bit of a n00b at the game - been playing off and on for about a month now... and I can't seem to figure out what benefit you get from being a member of a guild or faction or wing.

Leveling up my Flight License seems to have gotten me access to just about all of the Skylands (8/9 - I haven't seen a canonical list, but I see about 45 of them; I expect that I'll see a few more when I spend 120 FP to level up FL again), leveling up my Trade License seems to get me access to more goods (6/8 - only missing top 2 goods; I'm expecting to see those when I level up my TL).

I haven't seen any possibilities for interaction with other players such as duels, PK's, etc - so I honestly don't understand what membership in a faction or guild or wing could accomplish for me.

I'm not asking to hear any recruitment speeches, or what specific factions (or guilds or wings) can offer, this is a more general question about the technical benefits of faction, guild, or wing membership in general; like trade bonuses at guild owned Skylands, higher trade-in value for planes, etc.

Sorry for asking such a n00b question, I just haven't been able to find this info in the manual or FAQ or Wiki.

Beyond additional intangible benefits such as companionship, there are none.

Factions get you an extra chat tab and forum, and any influence you run goes towards that faction. Influence has no in-game effect besides what "flag" a skyland flies (no discounts at places your factions owns, no special missions, etc.), so I don't think that matters to you.

Wings get you an extra chat tab. They're primarily intended as social things, and since they're private (in that you have to choose to join them) they're the only chat that has no rules. So if you want to swear up a storm with your friends, you all make a wing together.

This is not true. Wing Chat has whatever rules the wing-leader sets up, which is often more than nothing. But less than the rules in the other four tabs.

If that were true someone would stop me from posting Alan Moore x Alan Moore all the time. They do not. :razz:
