This guy is used to doing this... he gets to a guild, the minute he get some access to a guild bank, he empty everything, leave guild and then change his name so you can't track him. Our GM made this mistake of give him full bank access, since he showed to be a really "good guildie", helping others and doing activities to benefit the guild. He empty the bank and left guild and changed name. He is still in our realm. His name used to be Aronus a warrior plus he also has a mage named powermuffin. If you see him..do not trust him. Blizzard said that they couldn't do anything about it since our GM gave him full bank access. Learn from our mistake! Don't want another guild to go through this.

Don't give up. What you've identified is a pattern of behavior. Blizzard will have access to his account name via any character name he uses. Rally the guild leaders to each put in their own ticket on this guy. Blizzard will be able to correlate the characters guild joining and leaving with the dates of items reported as stolen. If the guy is doing what you allege, it's against the terms of use. He can be shut down if you can get enough affected guild leaders to report the thief, and keep reporting.

So you say Aronus and Powermuffin are his characters, have either of them done the guild cleanout/gquit thing, how do you know they are the same person? How do you know they are the same as the thief?

One thing you can personallly use to track someone is to get an addon that allows you to save notes as part of your Friends List. That way when the person changes names, the old note will be next to the name (on your computer). That works unless the character leaves the server or faction transfers. Another thing you can try is take screenshots of the armory for one version of him and again as soon as you discover the name change. The combination of gear, enchants, gems, and mogging can work as something like a fingerprient.

These sites can also track name changes. They never delete information from transfers. I tested this with the old name of one of my Officers.

@ cambro.. Thanks for all the info.. I spoke to blizzard several times about this and each time they gave me the same answer: "Since he was given access to the bank guild by our Guild Master, he did not commit any fraud" They understand why I'm mad but according to "their rules" there's nothing they can do about it. :( I know he's alt mage name is powermuffin because it was on our guild too. he took it out of the guild the same day he took out his main... I saw powermuffin at The redemption guild and I already spoke to that guild's officers to let them know what he did.

This is the latest response from Customer Support:
Good morning,
Thank you for contacting the World of Warcraft Game Master Department.
We have investigated the player you have reported for guild bank theft, and will be taking the appropriate actions to resolve the situation, including suspension and/or termination of account. Because of privacy concerns, we are unable to disclose the nature of the action taken.


Thank you for posting the website Ekàlb, I know myself & Barcelogirl are making it our personal mission that EVERY guild this guy is in knows what he does. Everything he took has already been replaced so it's about letting other know what happened. It sucks that it happened to us but if we can help someone else avoid this then it is worth all the hassle.

warcraftrealms.com is definitely an amazing site, but it relies on players to supply the data, using the CensusPlus addon. Run scans while you're logged in and don't forget to upload the data periodically to the website. The more people that use it, the more complete the data will be.

Freya, any idea how character name changes are tracked? I don't see how it's possible without knowing a character's ID number, something I've never seen.

Cambro - Not sure. From what I have seen of it (which is little), they try to track it by tagging each name that comes through their system with a number. Sort of cataloging in their own terms. If that number shows up somewhere else, the new name becomes applied. However, searching their database for a specific character requires you know the exact name.

For instance: "Ebon" will not bring up Ebonskye or Ebonique. It does, however, bring up all the Ebon-- guilds.

I don't have anything useful to contribute to this thread. Just wanted to say I think the camaraderie on this server is amazing.

Yep, this server reminds me a bit of my home server of Staghelm before Wrath butchered the community. I miss the vanilla/BC days. Good times.
