Cherrypicking some things from the various panels to discuss…

Guild Improvements

  • 2o guild levels. Raiding/PVP/leveling/crafting/gaining rep/questing (basically anything) will add guild experience. Only top 20 earners count per day (so you can’t build a 1,000 member megaguild and ding 20 in a day)
  • Each guild level adds a guild talent point. Unlockable abilities in guild talent tree include lower/reduced reagent costs, increased gold drops, mass rez, mass summon. Guild talent tree will be respec’able (presumably by the GM)
  • Once guild dings 20, guild exp converted to guild points, which can be used as currency for guild items. Some things discussed: mounts, profession recipes, banners, cheap potions/reagents, heirloom items. All guild-items are linked to the guild and will be removed from a player if they leave the guild.
  • New guild  recruiting tool
  • Guild achievements (replaces some player achievements)
  • Can browse profession books of guildies
  • Guild news feed on Armory
  • Calendar can now be used to invite other guilds to raids
  • No guild hall. :(

Like I said yesterday, I’m really blown away and pleased by this change. I think the guild experience is one of the better things I’ve experienced with WOW, and anything that reinforces that design is welcome. The dual design (everyone gets level 20 eventually, but only seriosu players get achievements) is definitely the way to go.

LFG Improvements (possibly implemented in 3.3)

  • Instances will be cross-server.
  • LFG leaders will receive some type of reward.

Wow! Not anticipating this one at all, but this fits perfectly with my current playstyle. Cross-server instances will help drastically with the early-morning groups I’ve been doing.  The whole “leaders get a reward” thing is cool in theory, but then you run into the “everyone wants to lead” problem…and most of those people won’t be great leaders. It’s nice to get some in-game appreciation though. :)

  15. Another thing I have noticed is the fact that for many people, below-average credit is the results of circumstances outside of their control. One example is they may are already saddled with an illness so that they have substantial bills for collections. It can be due to a work loss or perhaps the inability to go to work. Sometimes divorce or separation can truly send the money in a downward direction. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog.

  16. One thing I’d really like to say is that before acquiring more laptop or computer memory, consider the machine directly into which it is installed. If your machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Adding more than this would purely constitute some sort of waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle this upgrade volume, as well. Good blog post.

  23. Thanks for this excellent article. Yet another thing to mention is that most digital cameras can come equipped with a zoom lens that permits more or less of your scene to get included by simply ‘zooming’ in and out. These changes in concentration length will be reflected within the viewfinder and on substantial display screen at the back of the actual camera.

  25. Thanks for your useful post. As time passes, I have been able to understand that the symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by a build up of fluid between the lining of the lung and the torso cavity. The ailment may start in the chest place and spread to other limbs. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include weight-loss, severe respiration trouble, nausea, difficulty taking in food, and puffiness of the neck and face areas. It needs to be noted that some people with the disease don’t experience almost any serious signs at all.
