In cataclysm, with the introduction of "Bind on Guild" heirloom gear, I think they should also introduce this concept to heirlooms (and their crafting reagents, like Valanyr shards). This way, the guild who put so much effort in assembling one (for the good of the guild) can't be robbed of it by that person switching guilds or when he stops playing. On top of that, the person to get this item would not have to have a 100% attendance when farming shards in fear of missing a drop. The entire guild could collect it.You could even switch the weapon to another healer if someone can't make a raid.

I believe there was mention of "Bind on Guild" items at BlizzCon, but for Guild Profession heirlooms with the new guild changes in Cataclysm.See (Guild Professions): http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f92/54559-cataclysms-massive-guild-changes.htmlAlthough that might change/have changed.

@JamieYeah, it was only announced for guild crafted heirlooms. But I think it is a brilliant concept to use for other stuff too, including guild crafted legendarys.Nothing was announced, I am just spouting an idea.

I've also known some guild leaders who chose to simply gKick everybody from the guild when something went wrong, keeping the entire guild bank for himself. What's to prevent a weary guild leader of a high end guild to decide he's quitting the game, gkick everybody, and sell his guild (+all bank items, achievements, heirlooms, even legendaries(?) to the highest bidder? It's not even selling the account now, all you have to do is /ginvite and then pass over guild leadership. Just something to think about. Wish Blizz had implemented some kind of power check in the guild system.

that will also help people who have to bring their alts. my resto druid had two shards for the Ulduar mace soon after Ulduar came out, and one week i had to bring my holy pally because we had 3 other resto druid online that day. Guess what? TWO other shards dropped. f-king pissed me off. Well, not so much anymore because the guild basically fell apart soon after and my druid is still sitting on the two shards, unlikely to ever finishing it before i'm done with the game.
