I don't think it should be considered cheating by any means. If I had saved up 20k gold, I should be able to spend it any way I want to, and if it is to get some guild to run me through ZA or BT, then who is someone else to tell me otherwise.

Your guild leader/officers are the ones to tell you otherwise. It reflects poorly on the guild and yourself as a player. Even if you do see it. You should probably \gquit and start up your own guild if you think that is fair. That way you can build something up with like minded people. No harm no foul.Some people have self discipline and a sense of fair play, others do not. You have to ask yourself which type are you.

Supply, demand, and the TOS are the only rules we need to follow. Anyone who thinks otherwise and limits their behavior to follow additional personal rules may be acting nobly, but certainly are not adding anything to their game except a sense of personal achievement. Honestly, if blizz's changes devalue the work you put into your achievements, you can't expect other players to pretend the changes weren't made, unless you're willing to force them into it.Supply and demand works for guilds as much as they do epics- a guild leader can make any demand he wants, so long as he's willing to accept that people might disobey and either quit or be kicked. People can choose to disobey commands from their GM as long as they understand they will have to find another guild, which may not be the easiest thing to do.

"Your guild leader/officers are the ones to tell you otherwise." excuse me, but my guild leader/officer's do not pay for my account. hence they have no say in what i do with my accounts resources.that kind of "we rule you!" attitude is one of the biggest problems with WoW. GM's and guild officers thinking that they have dominion over your life because of a stupid in game guild title that doesnt mean squat for anything.with all of the articles in the guildwatch section about guilds being clueless as to why players leave their guild in droves. this right here is one of the main reasons. too many people think that they are a monarch with absolute authority to do and say whatever they want to their guild members.

They don't have dominion over your life, but they do have dominion over their guild. It's their job to have a vision for the guild, which can not possibly be 100% compatible with every last member. While dictators will certainly shove people out, you'll find that even more democratic leaders will stand firm on points they see as core to the guild's ideology.Even if you find the perfect guild, no guild is static. Time changes all things, and at some point you'll either have to compromise or deal with what comes from standing firm. It's not a bad thing to have some principles you won't compromise on, but it is bad if you blindly blame the other person for reacting appropriately.

I completely agree with you, 'sides if I were a guild leader I would want my fellow guildies to get geared up one way or another.
