Jan 9th 2012 10:48AM Good points. I see this change as a very welcomed one that is wrought with unwanted consequences that will cause MORE complaints after it's implemented. Hopefully they can figure out a way to do it without causing the upheaval previous changes have caused.
Jan 9th 2012 10:46AM Cool idea, but there will be some unwanted side effects that might need to be overcome. But overall this is a good change!
Jan 9th 2012 10:39AM I'm 50/50. My first toon was a female (a hold-over from a FPS game I played where the female gender diminished your profile, hence, making it harder to be hit). She's also modeled after my wife. The rest of my toons were split evenly, if it was a sneaky Rogue, I chose female. I think women are sneaky. If it was a grunting Paladin or DK, I chose male. So for me it was based on what they would be doing.
Jan 9th 2012 10:36AM Yet more Rogue love....Subtlety.
Few things are more fun that getting into a WSG after I've capped weekly CP, picking one player as my target, and haunting that guy/gal the entire game. My goal is to get you to quit the BG out of frustration after being sapped, stunned, and killed each and everytime you spawn from the GY.
Nothing is funnier than having a DK death grip you away from your target, only to Shadowstep right back. Or getting frozen, but then Vanish, ShS, and stun.
Jan 9th 2012 10:20AM Grimmlette - good points, especially about the MOTD and space in notes. But I have some tips for Officer Notes that might help you....
We also keep join date and alt names in Officer notes. We came up with a notation that keeps the space maximized. For date, use YYMMDD ,, etc. You can usually get 3 alt names in before you run out of space. Then in ach alt, we put the Main's name. It's not perfect, but it has helped. One other tip on alts names - the Prat "chat" addon is fantastic for this, as is Guild Extender. I use Prat because it's simpler to use, but you can mark alts easily with both.
One change that was overlooked that would be VERY helpful for GM's would be to separate Repair gold from Withdrawal gold. I don't mean the checkbox we currently have, but there should be TWO gold amounts. My guild provides unlimited repairs to anyone that is a Member and above. But I don't want to provide unlimited gold withdrawal to Officers. With the current system, I can't open up one without opening up the other.
An "instanced" guild hall seems to be the thing we've all been asking for for years. Make some of these perks or guild currency spendable in the guild hall, and based on the guild level. It's nice to have a place to hang out, but if you put perks inside the guild hall (like Void Storage, mount vendor, guild bank tabs, etc), it would increase guild member interaction.
Jan 6th 2012 3:24PM Nice article, Basil, and good advice! Nice basic article to get people going making gold, espeically in a couple ways people don't generally think about.
