New Guild Services Now Available - Updated

The price is too steep for the average player of many toons to be able to pay for.

I have 10 toons myself - 300bucks (250 + guild fee) to transfer my 10 toons (not to mention everyone else who also have alot of toons in the guild) is too much money.

If it were possible to make it cheaper, then I (and many others like me) would be able to use the service and transfer to a more populated realm.

You are going to have to come down to the financial level of your average player, Bliz, if you want to make "more" money with this service.

As recently announced on the front page of the community site, we are in the process of adding new guild services that will make relocating to a new realm, switching factions, or changing your guild name easier than ever before. You can learn more about these services on our official announcement and FAQ here:

<a href="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/3710215/">http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/3710215/</a>
<a href="http://us.blizzard.com/support/article/40639">http://us.blizzard.com/support/article/40639</a>

As a part of this process, we're offering players on the select realms the opportunity to take advantage of these services before they become widely available, as well as help us perform additional testing for stability and functionality. If you are a guild leader on any of the NA realms listed below and are in interested completing a Guild Master Realm Transfer, Guild Master Faction Change, or a Guild Name Change, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

I was unable to do a guild transfer because it gives me a generic error "name is taken". Which I assumed is because my characters name (the guildmaster) is taken on the server we are transferring to.

So rather than outrageously paying double to rename my character to transfer our guild, i transferred leadership to one of my alts to try. Well....

DO NOT TRY TO SWITCH GUILD LEAD TO ONE OF YOUR ALTS.
You will get a 7 day lockout that is NOT described in the FAQ.

As it ends up the error was because our guild name was taken/registered by some jackass to be a troll.

Dont get screwed like us, dont try to transfer glead to one of your alts. And dont tell anyone the new server name untill u xfer. And when it says "Error: name is taken" next to your character portrait. It probably means your GUILD NAME is taken; and hopefully not by some troll.

We had everything planed and ready to go, thoroughly read and followed all the rules, FAQ, and info... Really a huge let down.

A GM responded quickly to our ticket :D +1

But as expected we now have to wait for the lockout to expire because we didnt have Gnomish Mind Control Caps for which to read dev thoughts :O -1


To any web devs that may be listening please add the word "guild" to the front of "name is taken" if you're going to put the error next to a character portrait. Additionally, tell people about the 7 day guild lead change restriction in the FAQ.

Because Enchants are too Mainstream

Imagine this, too: Guild master doesn't log on for 30 days. Some random person of the next rank clicks the button first, server/faction/etc changes the guild with the bank intact.

Think of a way to prevent this, maybe?


Not possible, Only the GM can start a transfer.
