Battle Standards also do not count for guild reputation (e.g. from raid bosses)

Does anyone know if they boost guild experience gained?

They increased my guild rep. when I placed it on heroic boss kills. I was getting 110 or so rep with my guild when dropping it on 5 man heroic boss kills. This in contrast to the 80-something I was getting while not dropping it.

There goes my hope of having any use for the standards.

Oh Culhag, there's *always* a use for standards!

So, if Blizzard suddenly reduces the gain, can we accuse them of lowering their standards?/ducks

Note though that they only last two minutes, and there are some heroic bosses that can take longer than that, so by dropping the banner right before starting the fight you might miss out on the bonus rep with your tabarded factions. I try to drop it midway through if I remember and have a spare GCD. Annoying though.

I believe it was with this last patch they added guild rep to the mix, as who buys a standard when they still need experience?

When I saw in the patch notes about the quest turn-in guy at Hellscream's Reach accepting quests when the usual quest giver in TB is unavailable, I had planned to use this same strat (do all the TB and TBP dalies and turn them in together at the same area), so's I went and bought the battle standard. Wouldn't ya know it, the very next day I read this article saying that it doesn't do squat when used like that.More information would have been more helpful to me YESTERDAY!!!
