Honestly, though, I think Thrall's child is not the beginning of a new story for a new character but the end of an arc for Thrall. Thrall's passion to be a father and meet someone and get away from the people and culture he created and was burdened by is manifested through his son, everything Thrall wants an orc to be, born outside the old Horde and within the new one.
Plus, that kid has years to go before he's grown up. Personally, I hope he's just some better-than-average kid. Maybe he's a mathlete.
What do you think they are going to do with Mass Res? Are they going to keep it at guild level 25 or move it back?
Also, do you think they'll do cauldron's differently this time? As a alchemist I only make flasks to make cauldrons, so there's not much profit left in it.
Mass Resurrection will most likely stay the level 25 guild reward, since level 25 is still a challenge for many groups out there. Blizzard has said that it is adding new guild levels and rewards with the next expansion, which is expected, welcome, and fun. Guild rewards can be anything, really, so Blizzard has a lot to play with in terms of compelling rewards for guilds making it to the cap.
As for cauldrons, I feel like the BoA change to make passing cauldrons between alchemy alts and their raid counterparts solidified the cauldron system as the one Blizzard will move forward with. While it is still somewhat of a feat to put together the necessary number of cauldrons for heavy raiding, the difficulty is offset by the amount of buff you actually get, especially when you tack on the guild perks, time extensions, and bang for your buck in terms of numbers. Have there been many complaints about the Cataclysm cauldron system, or is it relatively accepted?
We might even see some new guild perks that expand on cauldrons some more, adding functionality or reducing their cost somehow. At this point, it's wait and see.
So, the GM (well, now ex-GM) of my guild logs on yesterday, removes 400,000 gold from the guild bank, passes GM to someone else and then leaves.
/sigh. Don't think there's anything to be done, but it was such a dick move.
No joke -- submit a ticket. Blizzard takes these things seriously! Drakkenfyre in the comments makes some good points about making your case:
Submit a ticket.
While everything in the guild bank is considered property of the guild leader, if the items were clearly from other members, and the guild leader swipes stuff from the bank then leave, Blizzard HAS been known to action them for that, and restore the items.
If the gold was pooled from multiple people in the guild, mention that in your ticket. At worst they say no, at best, you get the gold back.
