I'm willing to bet almost anything that in MoP, blizzard will offer a paid guild name change, similar to character name change. Why start from scratch when you can often buy a level 25 guild that was full of people, who then bounced to swtor or tera or gw2?First thing I would do when starting a guild would be to call out in trade and see if anyone has a guild for sale. I see guilds for sale all the time on my mature server, and with the loss of subscriptions as well as the general churn rate for a game the size of wow, I have to imagine that buying a guild and then renaming it is going to be infinitely easier than starting from scratch.

They already have that AFAIK.

You can already do that. 20$ to change its name.

Looks like you guys are right! I've never used any of those change name or server or faction or race services, so I don't pay much attention. But according to this:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/3710215/_New_Guild_Services_Now_Available-10_25_2011"Three guild services are available: Guild Master Realm Transfer, Guild Master Faction Change, and Guild Name Change. These services can only be initiated by a character who is a Guild Master... Guild Name Change costs $20 US"Looks like this started last October.So yeah, if I were to start a new guild, there is no way I'd start from scratch. I'd buy the highest level guild I could find, and pay 20 bucks to name change. That sounds like a helluva lot less work than going through all those other steps, plus you have the recruiting advantage of starting with a high-level guild.
