"First rule of Brawler's Guild is you don't talk about Brawler's Guild."
its only at this point to gate the entry into the feature, it will open up more later.
This just all seems so... Pointless. A few achievements and a pet, and all this careful hoarding of invitations? Pathetic, I'm not even remotely interested, nor is there any reason to be.
Marketing for who ? For people that already play WoW ? And you will say that this will make people subscribe only to see this new feature but you forget that most actual players have annual pass.
The biggest problem I see with this system is that elite guilds with financial resources will purchase the invites in BMAH and then- to limit any competition or progression from rival guilds - will simply not share the spin-off invites outside their guild until they have beaten every achievement to death. In medium/small sized realms, this is going to be a huge problem.Blizzard should simply fix this by having the invites in a BMAH and put them as a random drop on end bosses in heroic dungeons or bosses in LFR and up raids. This will circumvent any chance for gold buyers or gold dominant elite guilds from controlling access to this faction and create an interest and more traffic in LFG and LFR for people to farm the invites. Basically- if you REALLY want it right now, bid out the nose for it or grind grind grind dungeons are hope to win one- just like everything else.On my realm I saw a 483 hunter rifle just sell in BMAH for over 400,000g (!) so I can assure you that BMAH invites are going to cost an arm and a leg.
Blizzard announced a few days ago that the Realm First Achievement was no longer going to be available, All you actually get is regular achievements. The part I dont like (last i read anyway) the invites from guild members, you only get 1 free one to give out or sell only after you reach level 7 in the Brawler's Guild
I never really got into the point of Soloing bosses anyways... granted while I prefer to level my toons by questing alone... when it comes to instances isn't the point to be sociable and do it in a group? Having a "guild" for people to brag and raise their ePeen meters because "I solo'd Hogger in Stormwind Stockade! at level 90" is just silly.
A Brawller is more likely to go after Varian than Hogger at lvl90 so show some respect and only 10 invites across how many realms
Ikr? everything that is slightly cool blizz makes insanely difficult to do/get. I am dissapoint.
From my understanding you have to be at rank 7 with the Brawler's Guild in order to invite ONE person. Im not sure how accurate this information is though =)
I got my invite from as a drop from one of the new Krasarang rares. The invite process so far is one invite given upon reaching rank 7 then nothing else so far. Whether this will be weekly or just one invite ever is yet to be seen. On a side note, the invite is account bound so I am currently progressing my shamen through to see if I get another.
Hmmm.. There seems to be quite a few on the BMAH right now on my server, and most of them are listed as 'short' time remaining.. Unless all of sudden they go from 1-2k bo to like 50k, I really don't see what all the qqing is about *shrugs..
Yeah I bought mine for 1400 gold yesterday. I was amused at all of the wild claims that they were going to be hundreds of thousands of gold, and would be horded by a few players before this hit. I knew that at 10 a day the supply would be high enough that the demand wouldn't keep the price crazy too long.
