    Gquit and name change question

    Ok, so long story short, I wanna quit my guild, and not have to worry about being bugged by any of them in it, so I was gonna gquit, then change my name. Does anyone know if that changes the guild log to my new name, like it does for the friends list? So, if my name's bob, and I change it to george, will it say bob left the guild, george left the guild, or unknown left the guild? Thanks for your help.

    Yes they will see your new name no matter what. In fact it pretty easy to track down anyone in wow.

    Server transfer + name change. If you stay on the same server, you'll easily be tracked.

    I'm not trying to avoid people enough to server transfer. :-) I was just wondering about the guild log is all. Thanks for the replies.

    If any of them have your on their friend's list, it'll automatically update with your new name. Either way, quitting a guild isn't worth the 15 dollars (Or whatever the price is. it's still not worth it.)

    Name changing won't do anything, if they want to find you they will.

    Why do you want to hide from them? Just curious....

    Also, if any of them have you on their friends list, your name will change on there. There really is no hiding without server transferring.

    Alternatively, own your actions. If you're ashamed of it enough to not want to talk about it, don't do it.

    Good code to live your life by.

    I think if you delete your character you'll lose all guild relationships altogether and you'll leave no information in the the guild log as you never actually left the guild. Then wait a day or two for Blizzard to restore you character and then change your name (use paid service) if you want to.

    Of course, in any case the guild can still contact Blizzard and ask what happened to your character.

    Gquit in the middle of the night and just ignore any whispers or mails from them and pretty soon they'll forget you.

    Don't waste the money on a name change, wow progress will link your new name to the old one, its so easy for someone to find you its just not worth even trying.

    Easier way to do it would be to tell them(not in wow chat) that your giving your account to a family member so it wont be you playing anymore and they will leave you alone.

    Yeah, I knew about the friends list thing, and I Didn't do anything, it's just one of the officers is, awkward I guess. I don't really know how to describe it. Thanks for the tips.

    A guildie quit and transfered, not exactly the case here, however it says his name in the guild log still, even though if you tried to, for example, add a char named that to friends list, it says character does not exist.

    Could be, but what about in the case if someone does this to steal something from the guild? Probably they'll just restore what was stolen and leave it there..

    This is a bit extreme, also Blizzard shouldn't be able to give out that information. Since it is not their character ;p

    Server transfer away while keeping the old name and then transfer back 3 days later while changing the name. It will reset your character ID, becoming untrackable to anyone who doesn't have your battle tag.

    Anything the guild permissions allow a person to take from the guild bank, they are free to take. Blizzard won't restore these items unless an account was compromised.

    If someone cleans out your guild bank then leaves, too bad. You shouldn't have given them that kind of access.

    Nor is it against any rules to votekick a member from the group - one person can't do it, apparently someone agreed with the rogue.

    its a lot cheaper to just tell them that your goals no longer coincide with theirs and that you don't want to be a part of the guild anymore
    be ready to sacrifice who you are now, at any moment, for who you will become

    Great advice.

    Also, they don't care nearly as much about you as you think they do.
