Completely agreed. I'm really at a loss as to how this is such a 'blow' to guilds anyway. Blizzard is not encouraging guilds to work together with this change? What? There are still plenty of achievements that reward TANGIBLE THINGS such as pets and mounts and so forth for accomplishing achievements. These achievements are still bragging rights that your guild worked together to achieve them. That's what they SHOULD be, not "Our guild worked together so we could mass rezz people and your guild can't." It should be "You know what, our guild worked together and accomplished all this because we're a guild who DOES THAT and encourages members to help one another out and accomplish difficult tasks." Honestly, if a guild hinges their success on what level they are, I'd be highly suspect that they're also guilds who can't make it through a raid without raging at their members because something is difficult. Blizzard didn't remove the bonuses for certain achievements... just that those achievements count for the LEVEL of the guild. I still fully am annoyingly reminding my members to kill every living critter they see as they level because it'll make eventually getting that armadillo pet easier. I, who never used to kill a critter needlessly unless it was to get extra rage before a pull, am now killing poor rabbits every chance I get. And I've turned my guild just as murderous. We're having fun seeing the number go up and players are joking in guild chat about the huge spells they're using to kill a single moth. When working together, isn't fun supposed to be a part of it? There's people saying how they planned for these achievements. That's honestly great. But why do the achievements have to be guild exp for you to still be proud you managed them?
