Officers' Quarters: 8 gift ideas that won't break the gbank

A gnome on a kodo mount
Every Monday, Scott Andrews contributes Officers' Quarters, a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. He is the author of The Guild Leader's Handbook.

The holiday season is all about giving. It's the perfect time of year to hold contests and giveaways. Doing so can be a great way to build morale in your community or attract new players. Giving gifts to your officers as a guild leader is also a heartfelt way to show appreciation for their hard work throughout the year.

However, many of the most desired items can cost a fortune in gold. For officers, manpower is often much easier to come by than raw currency. Here are eight items that make great gifts or prizes without bankrupting your gbank.

8. Discombobulator Ray

Where to get it: An engineer can learn the schematic in Gnomeregan. Wowpedia has a walkthrough. It also has a small chance (0.5%) to drop from Mekgineer Thermaplugg, the last boss of the dungeon.

What it costs: A small amount of gold for materials: bronze bars, silk and wool cloth, and jade.

Why it's a good gift: Many players don't even know this vanilla-era item exists. It has a unique and hilarious effect, and you don't have to be an engineer to use it. It's also a devastating item for low level players to unleash in PvP.

It came from the Blog: Candy Run 2013 snapshots

Candy Run 2013 trick or treat
Last Friday, It came from the Blog hosted its annual Candy Run. We met in Brill and put out the fires of the Headless Horseman. We then ran around to all of the inns that are easily accessible by running. We trick or treated in Silvermoon and all of the blood elf area inns as well as Tirisfal Glades and all of the undead area inns. We proceeded through Silverpine Forest, onward to Hillsbrad Foothills and ended the first part of the event at Hammerfall in Arathi Highlands.

We then abandoned the lowbies and those of us with all of the flightpaths in the Eastern Kingdoms flew around together, trick or treating at all of the continent's inns. We started up north with the Hinterlands, Western Plaguelands and Eastern Plaguelands. Then we took the long trip to the Badlands and continued through the southern part of the continent, ending in Sassy Hardwrench's Hideaway in Stranglethorn, earning us the Tricks and Treats of Eastern Kingdoms achievement.

This event was much longer than most of our events, but it was tons of fun nonetheless. We have an event every month, so stay tuned for the announcement for November's holiday outing. The snapshots for Candy Run 2013 are below.

Officers' Quarters: 6 tips for officers on soon-to-be-connected realms

Officers' Quarters 6 tips for officers on soontobeconnected realms MONDAY
Every Monday, Scott Andrews contributes Officers' Quarters, a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. He is the author of The Guild Leader's Handbook.

Blizzard began the process of connecting realms a few weeks ago. After two successful connections, Blizzard is finally picking up the pace. Last week, they announced six more pairs that will soon become one. For officers, the weeks before and after a realm connection will be a crucial time. Here are some tips to put your guild in the best possible position within your newly forged community.

1. Don't wait for the connection.

If you intend to recruit from the new population, the time to do so is right after the connection is announced. Players who are looking for guilds on the combined realms will start shopping around immediately. The guilds who are proactive in this phase are more likely to land those players.

Visit the other realm's forums and say hi. You can post a recruiting announcement there, certainly, but you can do more than that. Introduce yourself. Ask questions about the realm you'll be connecting to and get to know the players there. Strike up conversations and become someone that forum users not only recognize, but like and respect. They will be far more likely to consider joining your guild when the time comes if they already know that an officer in the guild is a decent human being.

You can take that one step further and roll an alt on the other realm prior to the connection. There's no better way to get to know a new realm than to play on it and meet the players there "in person."

It came from the Blog: Brewfest 2013 snapshots

It came from the Blog Brewfest 2013 snapshots
Last month It came from the Blog celebrated Brewfest like we do every year: with lots of virtual beer and real fun. We began by meeting in Orgrimmar and then made our way over to the Brewfest grounds. We picked up quests and proceeded to Chug and Chuck. We then learned how to ride rams, which we were assured were not at all stolen, and proceeded to do some beer running. We then sold some brew by advertising it throughout Orgrimmar.

Then the Dark Iron dwarves attacked. We fought them back by using our new found skills of chugging and chucking -- this year with non-alcoholic brew. So this was the first year we chucked without upchucking. I guess this was a good thing, though part of the fun was always having the screen get too blurry to see.

Uldum guilds unite for breast cancer awareness month

Breast Cancer awareness month
October is breast cancer awareness month in the United States. Here at WoW Insider we have featured a number of in-game events in the past that have been organized around raising awareness for breast cancer. This year, we have been informed that the guild Endless Insanity on Uldum is running their own event in support of breast cancer awareness. Members of Endless Insanity have turned their tabards pink for this month and they have issued a challenge to other Horde guilds on the server to also turn their tabards pink in solidarity. Guild officers will be randomly opening trade and offering a variety of goodies to those they find sporting the pink tabards.

To those who have been affected by breast cancer -- whether you are a survivor, facing treatment right now, a loved one of someone who is, or have lost someone close to you to breast cancer -- we at WoW Insider salute you and wish you strength in your struggles. And to the guild Endless Insanity and any others that may follow their example this year, we thank you and hope that you inspire many to join in the efforts for the cure.

Thanks to the members of Endless Insanity who informed us of their events -- and here's to hoping it inspires some other guilds to do the same!
