 Post subject: New guild stuff coming! (a sneak peak from the test server!)
PostPosted: Sun Mar 06, 2011 3:58 pm 
I wanted to test out the new guild changes coming to the next patch and thought I'd share.

Guild Reputation Tabards!

They will be in the guild rewards tab and listed like this:

Image

And here are the three compared: 1) Normal every day guild tabard 2) Illustrious and 3) Renowned:

Image

So basically it's just some brown stuff added to the black one we have on horde side. Not sure how it looks on the ally white guild tabard.



Looking for Guild tool

Here is how the tool looks if you're without a guild and open the tool (opened from the same button we open our guild window).

There are three tabs:
First tab is for setting the kind of guild you are looking for. Serving as both a search filter for browsing guilds as well as representing you as an applicant when you request membership from a guild.

Second tab is to browse the various guilds who have listed themselves. You can request membership from more than just one.

Third tab shows which guilds you've requested membership from and there is an option to also cancel the request. (a little icon appears when you click on the selection)

Recruitment tab for guild masters

And here is how it looks from the guild master's perspective. There are now additional tabs at the top when opening the guild window (I guess these don't show to anyone other than the guild master):

Image

- A guild master can set options to determine what kinds of recruits they are looking for. I was disappointed that there is no checkbox for RP. Good that there is at least the textbox to write into, although very limited in character amount.
- A guild master can also see a list of people who have requested to join, and can actually accept them straight into the guild with 1 click (provided that the person is online). If trying to accept them when they are offline, it just says that the person cannot be found.

Nice, so this is actually coming with the next patch? How did you get this information? Looks great, but I think there can be a few more options, such as other availabilities than just "weekdays" and "weekends", a check box for RP, etc. But this could be good.

A bit strange about the guild tabards. It looks now that the higher you are esteemed within the guild, the quicker you get even more reputation with the guild. Probably just another carrot before the noses of players to get them playing more! I wonder how customizable they would be, the differences look very small on your screen shot.

Cheers,

Lahu

4.1 has been in the PTR (Public Test Realm) for a little while now. Rumour has it that it'll be out quite soon, maybe even within the next week or so. You can log-in to the PTR from the Launcher window under the Public Test though I think you need to download it. Not entirely sure how it works. Also if check out mmo-champion particularly the Blue posts you'll get the latest scoop : http://blue.mmo-champion.com/ or if your more of a geek like me, check out some of the podcasts. A new episode of The Instance came out at the weekend which usually covers all the news stuff http://theinstance.net

Thanks for the info Pryderic. I don't usually follow that often what's going on. The PTR, how does it work? Can any player sign up for it if he/she wants to test new features, or is it on a selective basis like it was with Cataclysm beta? I'm just curious.

Cheers,

Lahu

Lahu this was the first time in all the years of WoW, that I've ever tried out the Public Test Realm, I've just been too lazy and uninterested to test things out. But since I'm really really looking forward to these new changes, I decided to check it out.

The basic steps are:

1) copy your character to a test realm in account management (you can only copy max 4)
2) download and install the PTR client, which is really - the wow client all over again (so you'll need a lot of HD space)
3) Log on and choose the realm you selected in account management

Here is the PTR forum and their "how to" post:

http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1528623485

As for the guild tabard customization, you can't customize it at all. Instead it takes the default guild tabard and slaps some brown details on it. If you study the pictures closely, you can see that the "base" of the design is our normal guild tabard.

Thanks for the info Brambline. Don't have the time these days, but maybe one day I will. Is there an official post somewhere on this (especially regarding the LF guild tool)? I didn't find anything on mmo-champion.

It was originally supposed to be released with Cata. Here are slides from last fall on MMO champion. I guess the tool still needed more work since it took this long for them to release it.
