MMO-Champion - Guild Challenges on PTR 4.1, Build 13793 Strings, The Daily Blink
Guild Challenges on PTR 4.1
Guild challenges are now available on test realms, so far it only looks like weekly quests pushing your guild experience cap further. However it looks like the game also supports gold rewards for challenges, maybe after you reach the cap (See the Build 13793 Strings below). we will probably know more about it when Blizzard posts the official preview.


PTR 4.1 - Build 13793 Strings
Client strings are the lines used to describe elements of the interface and a lot of the things you see written in-game. Last build updated and added a lot of them and we can definitely gather some extra bits of information from them.

The Daily Blink - We Finished the Guild Finder
The Daily Blink has a very nice suggestion for Blizzard's guild finder tool in Patch 4.1 ...

    honestly, i would not expect more than what is there. Yes its nice for those guildes that hit cap every day to get that little extra but the smaller guilds like ours that sometimes only get 10% of our daily exp dont really benifit from this ( except the raid one which means on a wednesday we get 9.5m exp rather than just the 6.5m

    when i've heard about guild challenges for the first time, I thought it would be something like:


    You list your guild for guild challenges, then there are missions like "kill X players from that guild" "During this raid lockout period kill that boss before X guild kills it"


    etc etc etc

    Probably won't be anything. The guild who got it first got it b/c of a bug that didn't reset their xp like 99.9% of other guilds' xp was on launch day. Many people will see this as a non-legit world first then, even though it's blizzard's fault it wasn't reset.

    Everyone who is still racing won't get it for another week, and with how many guilds that will get it at about the exact same time, it will be almost impossible to prove who got it first.

    I'm just wondering where the guild challenges stuff was when it was actually needed? By the time the patch comes out active guilds will be around Level 23-24 if not already capped at 25 anyway so this feature will be useful for about 2 weeks maximum and then raiding guilds will be level 25 and it will be a useless feature.

    Who knows. Perhaps there are some guild challenges including crafting or gathering stuff and so on. This would more than certainly help smaller guilds (im in a small guild too). As i said ... we'll see.

    Congratulations on being one of those few guilds where gold is worthless, or being extremely stingy with gold. If you have spare gold, you can turn on guild repairs, or increase the max allowed. You can go to the AH and buy up epics to get your guildies (or their alts) geared up. Buy everyone a sand drake. You just aren't trying hard enough to use that gold. If you have all that then, yea its not going to help, but for the rest of us its nice... Still it would be nice to see more rewards than simply gold (such as raw materials).

    Because Blizzard thinks they know how to improve the game, i think they forgot how to do that sometime around December 7th last year

    The guild I'm in right now will be Level 22 tomorrow. Exp and gold aren't exciting. Titles, mount rewards, materials, etc, would be something to make people want to give it their all.

    Thoes challenges will probably make people a bit more active, but I don't see it becoming something you'd be looking forward to each day.

    Pfff... i had expected some guild challenges that made your guild travel around the world and not just keep it standing INSIDE sw/org... another pathedic attempt from Blizz to make something new....

    Although this is kinda sad and funny at the same time. I want the guild finder to be just like this, I could live with this LFGuild tool.

    18, could also be since my humor is more twisted, perverted and as some would say, "wrong".

    i find the rewards to be as out of whack as the current player rewards are.

    demanding victory from rated BG's also isnt the way to go to encourage 'casual' rated bg play. (which sounded like an issue from Blizzard in a post I dont recall)

    Damn ... didn't read the "daily blink" thing and was under the impression, this was an official guild search window... never "WTF'ed" so hard
  1. Skullchukka's Avatar
    Hmm I don't know.

    A fairly well-built guild will do these on a weekly basis anyway. It doesn't add something "new" or "refreshing" or even a "challenge". So we do what we were doing since Cata hit, and get extra guild xp in return, and you call this a new exciting system? I'm not impressed..
