For those of you who don't really want to be in a guild, but would like the perks this thread mentions, join a guild specifically for this purpose. See this thread.

Oh how I hope 2013 becomes the year of the guilds in TOR. Please let every major update between 2.0 and 3.0 have a significant benefit added for guilds. Things I'd like to see:

Guild housing - doesn't need to be capital ships only. I'd be happy with a large suite on Coruscant, or a casino on Nar Shadda.

Guild logos - I know this would probably never happen, but wouldn't it be cool to give GMs a cluster of say 100-200 shapes to work with, and let them layer and color a simple logo, eg CoD emblems? They could be displayed on players armor, or name plates, if the guild was at a certain rank or something.

Guild influence - give guilds the ability to feel immersed in the world. Have a featured guild screen on the fleets. Have displays on the planets listing the top 5 guilds for each planet (3 categories PvE Kills, PvP Kills, Time spent on Planet. 3 totals weekly, monthly, all time). And titles that go with it (All members of a guild that has the most logged hours on Tattooine get ", the Tattooinian" title) Those guilds get +% exp on the planet, % discount on all planet vendors, % bonus credits on items sold to vendors on planet.

Open PvP world where guilds battle for control of sections of the map. - Free-for-all like Outlaw's Den. Must be guild affiliated to land on...oh...let's say Mygeeto (you can never have too many ice worlds). Daily/Weekly Quest objectives for taking sections, holding sections, enemy kills.

SO MANY MORE!!!!

I'd have to see the other "guildperks" first really. I could really care less about an experience bonus. Experience bonusses are easy to get anyway IF I were even remotely interrested in them. Chances are, that an experience bonus would be reason for me NOT to join a guild on some of my low level toons.

Im actually a bit cautious regarding guild bonusses overall. The experience bonus doesn't matter too much to me. But I hope they're not even considering things like credit bonusses, bonus damage/healing/health/stats, guild discount vendors, guild bonus valor or guild bonus commendations. And many people will hate me for this one, but as long as there is no proper fully customizable playerhousing, I'm also dead against guild ships.

I'm pretty much okay with cosmetic stuff like having a guild-logo show somewhere on a players' armor, or possibly even sets of guild-gear in a custom colortheme. Which should be empty orange shells without any bonusses though.

But anything else, and the 4-men requirement for starting a guild should be lifted and offline invites made possible (to invite alts). So people without a guild aren't placed at any gametechnical disadvantage, but have a convenient option to start their own 1-man guild if they want.

It's great news that we will start seeing more attention for guilds. I'd really like an assortment of guild perks that the guild can choose to unlock via some sort of achievements or to have guild effort otherwise rewarded.

I am not in a guild however I support what a lot of people have been suggesting. I would like to see Guild Bases/Ships guild events and the like. What I am hoping we dont see is Guild Stat bomus, any more XP/credit/com/valor bonus for being in a guild. Guilds should have things to do not just a series of stat bonus so people have to join a guild to compete.

As i posted in the suggestion thread about guild cap, it's vital to increase the cap. If you give guilds more love that's a good starting point. Second are guild management tools, it is hard for the moment to do all actions easily. Make it possible to mass promote, demote, delete, set member or officer note,... , so we do have to do it alt per alt. A guild calendar would be nice, with integration in the MOTD to have part of it showing upcoming events to guild members. Have the possibility to allow sign-ups for the event on the calendar and do gear checks on signed up characters, provide a /roll mechanic to determine who can go on oversubscribed roles. Allow the reservation of roles to certain people, so the operation/event leader and possibly others can have guaranteed spots. Allow cross faction guilds or at least provide some tools to have cross faction chat if you have guilds on both factions. I''m sure i could add some more, but this can be a good start.
