Guild Commands

Alright I give up...

Where do I go to find out how to manage my newly created guild? Like a list of guild commands, something to explain the interface, etc. What is editable (rank names?), what isn't? Do guilds span factions or can you run more than one guild? Finding it difficult to locate anything that really explains, from a guildmaster perspective, how these things work.

I was thinking I'd be able to just right-click my friends to invite them to my guild same as grouping. Is it a chatline command?

I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt and assume that the 1.2 update coming in April adds so many new features to the guilds that it would be pointless to waste any effort on creating a guild FAQ that I can read now.

...but in the meantime, could someone at least tell me how to invite my friends?

A list of Guild perks and whatnot would be good too. I can't find anything on guilds, really, and in game it appears to be little more than a social window and a chat channel.

/ginvite <name> (invite)
/gkick <name> (kick)
/gquit (quit guild)

There are no 'perks' in the WoW sense of the term.

There are 'perks' in that you have a group of players that you (ideally) share common interests with and enjoy playing with.

I wouldn't mind a /gmotd command (actually I should try that when I get home).

BW have said they're going to improve the guild interface; hopefully sooner rather than later. Being able to do invites from the guild panel would be quite handy.

While I always try to provide correct and meaningful information I have been known to make mistakes, from time to time.

I know there is a MOTD in guild as one I'm in uses it often. I also know that there are different ranks as well. I just don't know how to operate them as I never tried, even though I'm a founder of it I just want "Grunt" rank all to myself, but GL won't do it, am stuck with Officer.

ok so really there should be a list or drop down menu for guild option so when you create a new guild you are not lost and if you are like me I don't want to play guessing games like I'm programing to make things happen for things that should be built into UI for guild option so you don't end up having a fail start up as a new guild leader because your bad at guessing or do not know where to look. oh and are the forums generaling looked at or do you have to pick the right subjust for the game developers to read stuff like this to improve the game.

after all I play a game to play not try and do something else should just be able to play mindless but interactive lol

Just tried those and they don't work if the alt isn't online at the time! Is there a command that logs an invite until an alt logs in?

I ask as I've just joined a brand new guild with very few member and was trying to up the numbers by inviting all my alts as I can't seem to catch the guy that started the guild.

The fact that /gquit only works if the character is on-line is hardly surprising. It says "I want to quit the guild".

/gkick certainly does work when the target is off-line - otherwise how could a GL clean out inactive members?

/ginvite does indeed require the target to be on-line. It's consequently not possible to invite your own alts. (Whether this is good or bad is not a question I'm willing to debate here.)

I'd recommend asking the GL if it's OK to bring your own alts in, and discuss how to arrange it. Use in-game mail if need be.

If you don't get answers, consider finding a different guild.
