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 ...

    Maybe you just don't appreciate cynicism. Cynicism isn't always meant to be funny, either, though it's often a nice side-effect of it.

    As for the guild challenges - so what we know now, it basically is "go do dungeon or bg with your guild" like it's always been?

    I'd much prefer some "Guild Challenge" content I can do outside of raids/instances that give perks I can directly benefit from. Oh well.

    I think the guild challenge system goes to show how stagnant WOW has grown. Blizzard just implemented a system cause other games were doing it.. but they kinda forgot that they got very few ways of actually supporting that system.

    WOW is stagnant cause Blizzard isn't really taking the content forward and supporting the new systems they have ingame. Be that LFD tool that should be supported with diffrent setups - random mobs and more variety... Raids and PVP that is pretty much exactly the tech that was used in TBC - or GUild system that is killing alot of guilds -rather than helping them progress through the raiding content.

    Lol they call these "challenges" ?

    Guild Challenge: Send a mail to another guild member
    Guild Challenge: Turn in a quest

    Its like Achievement: Opened your mail

    How much more can you dumb things down? These are not Challenges, they are Guild Quests.

    You mean something like fish 100,000 fish from pools... or disenchant 10,000 items. Yeah.. they should definitely add these types of challenges to the game.

    Now that I think about it, that is probably what they are planning on doing. Take every achievement and break it down into week-sized bites, and then reset it every week. So it will be like fishing 1,000 fish from pools or do 300 daily quests.

    It is very lame.. I thought it would be something more cool and different... but it looks like it will be just more useless rewards for doing things we are already doing, or else they will just have boring grinds that reset every week.

    Interesting. I hadn't thought of making guild challenges that boring ("hey guys, let's just give guilds MORE experience for doing things they already do for experience! Brilliant!").

    Guild challenges are meant to help out smaller and new guilds. Obviously.

    Yes, yes you are.

    When I initially read about "Guild Challenges" there were no details thus a lot of conjecture could be used in trying to determine what they might mean.

    I assumed, wrongly of course, that they would be 'actual' challenges like killing a certain boss in under "XX" minutes or perhaps clearing trash in "XX" times and engaging "YY" boss. Something along them lines. I didn't even think about just killing "XX" and calling that good.

    How lame. How unimaginative. How uneventful.
    Blizzard: "Lets just put in a challenge that is not a challenge. In fact.. lets just give the challenge as something they do every week regardless."
    How droll.
