Blizzard on Guild Reputation 2: Electric Boogaloo
2011/01/20 at 4:50 PM
Looks like the discussion is heating back up in the guild reputation thread
we reported on
a few days ago. Blizzard poster Bashiok has replied to a few more posts in
, offering more insight into why guild reputation works the way it does and why these restrictions are necessary to prevent abuse. While I definitely agree that proper restrictions should be in place to prevent abuse of the system, I also know that Blizzard is more than capable of implementing changes
Many of you guys had some excellent suggestions to improve the guild reputation system (that guild leader-specified daily quest thing was great!) but sadly there has been no mention of any changes to it in the near future. Oh well, at least I'm almost Revered with my own guild. :(

Blizzard on Guild Reputation: Is the cap acceptable?
2011/01/17 at 3:08 PM
There was a semi-heated discussion going on (which has since magically disappeared) on the official forums regarding the concept and mechanics behind guild reputation. As many of you already know, guild reputation can be earned by completing various tasks, such as completing a dungeon or boss kill in a guild group, or by turning in quests. Guild reputation is required for certain rewards earned via guild leveling. The current guild reputation cap is 3500 (adjusted to 3675 and 3850 via the
For many players, this simply isn't enough. Others are disappointed in the lack of options for which to actually gain the reputation - and I have to say I agree with them there. I've been the guild master of my own guild for well over a year now and despite being one of the most active players and participating in basically everything that we do, I have lower guild reputation to than my guildies thanks to a reputation bug that Blizzard refused to admit existed. I gain reputation for completing seemingly random quests and occasionally whenever we kill a boss, though I agree that I'd much rather see reputation awarded for doing things that actually b
Cataclysm Daily Quests: Therazane
2011/01/03 at 9:40 PM
The Cataclysm expansion added thousands of new quests, and among these were quite a few new daily quests with which players can raise various reputations and earn some gold. I'll admit, I'm not particularly impressed with the monetary gain from these quests, as most quests award around or so, but I can tell that these quests were added as an alternate means of raising reputations without having to grind dungeons with the appropriate tabard on. That being said, I thought I'd take a look at the daily quests added for various factions with this expansion, starting with the big momma herself,

Guild XP Stealth Nerfed to 1/4?
2010/12/12 at 12:41 AM
Posts in the
Achievements and Guild Advancement
forum are indicating that
Guild XP gains have been nerfed by 75%.
It looks like only 1/4th of individual experience is contributing to guild experience now, rather than a full 1:1 ratio.
We tested this in game, and our findings sync up with the posts we're seeing in the forums.There hasn't been any announcement about this on the official forums—so we're not sure if this is a stealth nerf, a bug, or what. Keep your eyes peeled, and we'll update you as we know more.
Here's the original post:
We're getting 1/4th of xp now contributing to guild xp, and not a peep from any blue about this.
I'd like to trust that there's a reason for this, or an explanation.
Maybe on weekends it's reduced to 1/4th and weekdays it goes up to full to more easily allow caps to be hit weekdays.
Maybe rep affects xp contribution now.
Maybe it's a bug.
Maybe at 85 things even out.
Maybe they went overboard on the nerf, and are going to scale it back up some.
In any case, gett

2010/12/10 at 8:05 PM
With many players already reaching max level in the new expansion, we thought you guys might want a review of all of the amazing Cataclysm reputation rewards available! In Cataclysm, you can raise reputation with most factions simply by questing in their respective zones, and then finishing off with daily quests or simply running level 85 dungeons with the appropriate tabard. That's why we've put together a full guide, complete with reward tables and prices, for all of the new Cataclysm factions!
It's important to notice that, once again, shoulder and helm enchants are available as faction reputation rewards.
