My Horde hunter on Jubie is now 71 – she’s in a random level 25 guild that with somewhat reasonably pleasant guild officers, and level 25 guild perks. I am not complaining.
The GM did try and organise a AQ run, but a sever restart kind of halted those plans. There is the occasional banter in guild chat, and when people achieve something of note usually they get congratulated without being spammy, all and all it’s a somewhat pleasant place to level. If/when I get to 85 I’ll have the choice to participate in things a little more, but it’s not necessarily the guild to be in where everyone knows your name and says hi and bye, and that’s ok.
We have 861 members. When I logged off at midnight there was 36 people online
I got a little snarky in G chat with some level 85 who asked
” All my gear is broken I need to repair can someone please turn on guild repairs”
Once, twice, six times, ten times..
“Man do some dailys” someone said
” But everything is broken. I have to have guild repairs” He then repeated his request a few times more. So I asked him if the manual his toon came with when he brought it off Ebay explained to him how guild repairs worked.
“Why do we only have 80 gold in the bank?” He asked.
“Investments” someone explained
“You guys suck” he says. I tell him in chat he hasn’t endeared himself to me either, and then he Gquit
He pushed my buttons because he begged, and he did it in an irritating and repetitious manner.
One of the joys of being somewhat anonymous is the joy in doing your own thing, and not getting involved. * Tells myself DO NOT GET INVOLVED
It’s not my guild, I have no ties or loyalty’s beyond that I would rather it not be cesspool of beggars and noobs
” I need help on this quest”
“You’re level 3 what could you possibly need help with.. ”
but they haven’t been too many of them.
But the guy who Gquit did get me thinking. “Why do we only have 80 gold in the guild bank, and do I actually care?”
So First step was to look at the guild bank logs – screen shot above. The guild perk Cash flow, is making the guild just over 3k a week, but the withdrawal by the GM suggests that it’s going elsewhere, maybe into his pockets, or his and the officers quite regularly. Maybe he keeps it on his main.
Secondly – do I care? I’m getting a free ride. Bonus xp, bonus honor, faster run speeds, ect. The money percentage I’m getting from quest rewards and drops at level 71 and then the perk reward to the guild is like a seagull peeing in an ocean. No one notices. I am getting more out of this relationship then what they are getting from me. I really don’t think it’s my place to question them on so-called misappropriation of guild perk funds.
It’s not my guild, it will never be a ‘home’ and while that is a little sad, the transactional relationship that it is means that it doesn’t matter. It beneficially mutual and until I need something else then that’s all that matters.
