Your Guild Markets
Are you using your guild market to the full? How would you feel if I told you that you probably already have access to a secret marketplace that the other players on your server cannot access, a marketplace where the other buyers and traders will read everything you write and will want to help you make gold?
It’s just your guild forums! But what a great market they can be.
Tell your guild mates if you need any mats (stockpiling pyrite for potential epic gems anyone? Buying lots of Truegold transmutes ready for patch 4 ….. oops I’m not allowed to say that number!) The great thing about your forums is that your message stays “live” forever, or until the GM deletes it! Your trade chat message, on the other hand, is on screen for only a few seconds before it’s bumped off by the next incoming chat messages.
You can also offer a full list of your professions, in case your guild mates are desperately lazy and can’t use the guild roster, or you could write a little advert, listing your most popular crafting skills and patterns.
- Don’t be afraid to charge your guild mates, but be sure that your prices are fair.
- Personally I check AH and charge under the AH prices.
- If you find a guild mate taking advantage of you once, then CHEER – your friend needed gold and you were able to help him.
- If he tried to do it repeatedly, I’d suddenly make myself very busy and unavailable.
- Telling tales to a GM is often a no-no in etiquette until a complaint is made by another guild member.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff, but if it’s big stuff, sort it out quick.
Making Your Guild Bank Work for You
Do you take too much from the Guild Bank, or too little? Different guilds have different etiquettes and rules about using the guild bank. When I was raiding Karazhan, my raiding guild had the rules that no one ever needed to bring raid flasks, they were all provided by the bank, along with raid repairs. In wrath of the lich king, the guild bank rules were that unclaimed epics could be requested by chatting with an officer, and made our alts very happy in their free purples. When we downed Arthas for the first time, I donated a big bundle of gold to the guild bank as a reward for everyone.
What are your guild bank rules, and are you giving, or taking too much or too little?
More about giving to your guild in tomorrow’s post.
