I really, really want to see Guild housing/quarters.Guild members could buy items for the Guild House, either with honor points or gold.The Guild could upgrade the House from a one room shack to something more elaborate (just like bank tabs).You would just need to have a "Guild Portal" in strategic locations - each guild would have their own seperate "instance".

With all the social networking crap they are putting in I am surprised they haven't done "Guild Halls". All they need to do is instance one of the larger inn/hall models and have the ability to do some upgrades and mount trophies from bosses (Onyxia's skull over the fireplace, a fragment of Ragnaros keeping the kitchen fires ever burning etc).Player housing is a pretty pointless feature (if you want to play sims go play sims) but having some where for a guild to gather that is just for the guild is really cool and makes the guilds achievements feel more physical.

@ScottWhile I like the idea for sentimental reasons, Guild Housing wouldn't really be a good thing. Here are some reasons from the top of my head:1. The technical issues surrounding it would require Blizz to put resources into this rather than focus on something more important, like class balance or something.2. As it has been a clear intention for Blizz not to fill cities with NPC's, but players instead, this would be counter-productive.3. Would people actually use it? What does it bring to the game you couldn't have in any other way? If you are chatting on the guild channel you can still be questing or pvp'ng, or what ever. The only reason to be able to have "your own special place" for the guild would be for RP reasons. If you are having a meeting of some sort, well, the game is full of places that ain't used too much, so having a meeting in a castle or whatnot isn't really that big of a problem. Any other function a guild has or could have could be done with a much simpler solution than dedicating servers for a guild house.

No. Just no.I'll go one step further: go play secondlife. This is the world of warcraft, not the world of interior decorating. Plenty of other games you can do that.

@Bumblebee:You wouldn't need to have a bunch of NPC's for it. You just need a portal by each bank that goes directly to your Guild House (or Hall). Or even simpler, just add an option in the Dungeon Finder to "Go to your Guild House" and "boom" you're there.Exactly like theRaptor said, it's a place where the Guild can hang their trophy's, gather to hang out, party, meetings, just a place to call your own. A place the Guild can customize to build their identity. Yes, you can have meetings anywhere, but this would be the Guild's private space.@PyromelterWoW *is* social...guilds, raids, crafting, even trade chat...all social. Granted it's not Second Life, and I would never suggest it should be, I don't think it would simply be a matter of interior decorating (see above).

To the concerns that Player Housing would keep players out of the cities and weaken the social aspect of the game, there is a partial and easy solution. Only allow guild chat in the guild halls. No /w, no /trade, no /worlddefense. That way if you want to do anything social, you HAVE to leave the Guild Hall, but you have a private place for your guild.*shrug* It's an idea at any rate.
