IDK why this is a huge issue... Everyone Gum has posted about, saying they were core members is true.
Sub, idk what you deal is here. Lol. You don't have the <Epitome> tag. Nor have you ever(?). Does it truly bother you, what they do with their own guild?
Good luck in MoP fellas. I remember when I first came Horde. My intentions were to raise my rep until I felt like I could app to you guys. I have a lot of fond memories about Epitome.
Also, happy hunting.
