Prizes updated

I've made the fail list a permanent page.

We are currently on 1310 guild achievements and I want more, in the hope that it will shake up social guilds, therefore the following prizes are offered!

Legendaries: You need to have the legendary weapon and be honored with the guild. The prize is 5000G, after we get the achievement, you show me your item and your guild rep, proving it was your doing, and the money is yours. I cannot nominate anyone to "shadowmourne wielder", cannot force anyone to help you or even to not compete with you. You must get them on your own. But I pay you a nice prize! Sulfuras is taken!

Are you not entertained? 3000/G person (elevated from 5000G/team, that's 15K if you do it in 5v5)

Stay classy bunch: They need a lvl 85 character from the class and race below with honored guild reputation. First to get them receives gold, bold text is new/increased price:
  • Human hunter, 3000G
  • Night elf mage, 3000G
  • Gnome death knight, 2000G
  • Gnome priest, 1000G, claimed by Tyelrin
  • Draenei priest, 1000G
  • Draenei mage, 3000G
  • Worgen warlock, 1000G
  • Dwarf warlock, claimed by Roijer
  • Worgen warrior, claimed by Dibb
  • Human rogue, claimed by Rukus
Obviously no one in his right mind would class change for 1000G, new rerollers are the target audience of these offers.

Also, to have these achievements, it is now allowed to have an alt in the guild with the above combo. This is a temporary pardon from the no alt rule, after the achievement is done, the alt (or the old main) must leave, but you'll have an alt for whatever purpose you wanted one and the gold prize. If you want to invite such alt, come to me, not an inviter. The "achievement alt" exception applies to legendary wielders too.

Please note that the above is an exceptional pardon, and not a right. I can remove any alt any time I find him no longer useful.

I know that this has been mentioned before, but I am very confused about this wanting achievements to "tweak" the social guilds. I have belonged to two guilds during my Wow time, one a "casual" guild and now a "hardcore" guild. Never during my time playing have I cared one iota about other guilds achievements (not quite true now that I am in a progression based guild I do have some interest in how we stack up versus the other progression guilds) but really that is about it. Do you really think people care about Guild Achievements?

Of all your theories you have, most of which are great, this is one where I think you are still way off the mark. I have never met anyone in game looking for a guild who gives the slightest damn about guild achievements, mostly because to care about guild achievements you have to care about your guild in the first place and have a vested interest in it, which by definition potential recruits don't have.
