UPDATE: THESE WERE DEPRECIATED
Your army of supporters are a guild perk without including the guild achievement system, but here’s the summary of which of Blizzard’s Guild Perks can help you make gold in World of Warcraft.
Guild Perks that can make gold in world of warcraft
Level 3 Mount Up Increases speed while mounted by 10%.
Level 5 Cash Flow 1 and Level 16 Cash Flow 2 Each time you loot money from an enemy, an extra 5% (10%) gold is generated and deposited directly into your guild bank.
Level 8 Hasty Hearth Reduces the cooldown on your Hearthstone by 15 minutes.
Level 9 Reinforce Items take 20% less durability loss when you die.
Level 11 Mobile Banking Summons your guild bank. Instant, 1 hr cooldown
Level 14 Working Overtime Increases the chance to gain a skill increase on tradeskills by 10%.
Level 24 Bartering Reduces the price of items from all vendors by 10%.
The best of these are the bountiful bags perk, and the bartering perk at levels 23 and 24. Â Bountiful bags works with gathering, and also with things like “looting” herbs from dead mobs bodies, and it’s a good reason to move all your alts into a guild with level 23+ perks. Bartering reduces prices from vendors, which of course we love.
The reason I included the guild bank Cash Flow is because it’s still entirely possible to create your own level 1 guild, and invite guild-less players, giving them the opportunity to benefit from the other perks, whilst gathering the Cash Flow perk either for yourself, or shared between the guild, or offered as a ‘free repairs’ perk. Whichever you decide, its “free gold” from Blizzard rather than from player’s pockets, so enjoy it and take advantage of them if you can.
Beware of new guildies asking for expensive crafts very obviously for resale. Similarly if you are a newcomer to a guild, with some rare recipes or recipes that cost a lot of time to get or gold to buy. Don’t be afraid to appeal to a guild officer if a guild member is rudely demanding that you provide free services that would normally cost them an arm and a leg.
I’d also say beware of members demanding free crafts needing chaos orbs or other BoP crafting items. My policy is if it costs a Chaos Orb to craft, then offer a percentage of the retail markup for that chaos orb (or living ember or dreamcloth). Â You should pay your crafter at least a percentage of what he could have made by selling the bop item that he worked for. Alternatively, lets go to a heroic together and we’ll pick up a chaos orb just for you. Â (note, chaos orbs will become unbound in a future patch but not in 4.2)
