Charles W. Moore Jr. asked:
I have not seen this particular issue with any guild yet, but if certain guild rewards are linked to guild rep, as is currently true, if a member of a guild is kicked out of that guild, for either serious or joke reasons, do they lose all of their rep with that guild, and thus their abilities to access certain guild rewards?
You maintain your rep with a guild until you join another guild, and you cannot buy guild rewards when not in a guild.
I recently discovered that you can gain reputation with (in my case) the Alliance factions by wearing their tabard into content that I severely outgear (say, while farming SM for profession mats for my alts). Any word on if this is by design or if it will be fixed some day? I never finished maxing out my rep with Gnomeregan or Darnassus in Wrath, so this seems like it may be too good to be true (+3 rep per trash kill and +63 rep per boss kill with my level 83 warrior).
It's by design. You gain about five times as much rep running the dungeon at its appropriate level.
You were a blue? I had no idea. So can I ask a favor? I'm sure you still have some connections. Would you mind asking someone to stop by the arcane mage threads and give us a heads up?? Thanks. :)
It's disingenuous to maintain a mystique like I'm important or influential with Blizzard designers because, honestly, I have no pull whatsoever in these kinds of things. You'll notice I don't write much that's class-related. I leave high-level theorycrafting to people who're actually good at it.
I still have plenty of friends at Blizzard, mind you. And they're all pretty cool people. So I don't ask anyone work-related stuff. That way they still have jobs and I still have friends.
