Rep rewards and such are for max level characters, even heirlooms are meant to be earned by 85s and given to alts, you shouldn't be getting the rewards early, that's pointless.
That's false. A low level player can enjoy many guild rewards just as much as a high level player.
Erm, perks don't generally require rep, that's what rewards are based on, not perks.
I was specifically talking about guild perks, not rep, in item 2.
A blue poster in this thread said that Blizzard didn't want players to join a guild, make no contribution to the guild but get the benefits. Yet, that is exactly the way it works for guild perks. A player will be able to join a level 25 guild and get many of the guild perks without making any contribution to the guild.
Again, rep isn't for low level characters, and it was never meant to be, I've never even heard someone make your point before, I think you might be one of the only people in WoW complaining that they aren't adding more stuff for low level characters.
False. Guild rep can be earned by low level players. They just earn much less guild rep than a level 85 for doing the exact same quests. It's grossly unfair that a level 85 gets 16 guild rep while a level 10 gets 1 rep for doing the exact same fishing or cooking daily.
I don't know of any other rep grind that is affected by character level that way. Quests that reward rep for all other factions, except guilds, seem to give the same rep regardless of character level.
I have seen other complaints that players who like to level mainly via BGs don't get any guild rep.
