I'm sorry, but anyone who has been in a guild with a Tier 3 Guild Hall in Everquest 2 (as just one example) cannot look me straight in the eye and say they have 'no purpose'. They are absolutely epic and really make you feel a part of something monumental (no pun intended). What is a guild in WoW? A few letters below your name and nothing else. There is no way you'll be remembered in the game at all, no mark you can leave. No way to affect an ever-evolving world. A Guild Hall not only gives context, a tangible presence for the guild you've put so much effort in to, but a place to remember you by in game that will forever be 'yours'. When you log out of the game as it is now, you may as well have never existed. Sad but true. My entire guild in EQ2 are proud of and put so much effort into their guild hall, I get tingles every time I walk up the path past the giant fountain to those enormous gates.There are so many potential uses for a guild house (or player house for that matter) it's not even funny.- New holiday rewards like furniture and house critter pets (rather than lame temporary costumes and one use items)- Trophies from raids/achievements- Wintergrasp/Battlemasters in the guild hall- Badge vendors- Other vendors and npcs (food/drink, tabards etc etc)- Actually fleshing out the game instead of it just being about grinding heroic/daily after heroic/daily after heroic/daily- New quests/epic questlines to unlock perks for the hall (buffs etc)- Guild Bank- Crafting stations, Auction Houses...debatable. This is the one thing where I agree with Blizzard I think, it's probably best to leave them in the cities although frankly the cities are fairly deserted as it is (apart from Lagoran of course).I guarantee most, if not all, of the people pointlessly rallying against the inclusion of housing would love it as soon as it was added, if not for the immersion then for something else to do other than grind.TLDR version: lolol go bak to Simz k? lol
