Guild Level Five – Cash Flow

December 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Cash Flow

“Each time you loot money from an enemy, an extra 5% money is generated and deposited directly into your guild bank.”

 

I can’t be the only one who thinks that this gives guild leaders license to anally abuse every single guild member without even dropping his pants. 5% isn’t a huge amount, but when you have 100 members (or more) all depositing a trickle of gold into the bank each day, it can stack relatively quickly. Insert unadulterated and entirely inaccurate napkin math below.

Total Cataclysm Quests Available: 150+115+125+108+95 (numbers pulled from loremaster achievement from each zone) = 593
Plus a ton of daily quests.

Now imagine that two thirds of all of these quests require you to kill mobs (for drops or for slay counts). Each one on average 8 mobs (napkin!)?

400 (or so) quests.
3200 mobs killed.

That can give you anywhere from 640 gold to 2880 gold (using lower cap of 20s per mob, upper cap of 90s per mob).

5% of that can be anywhere between 32 gold and 144 gold per person leveling (approximately) from 80 to 85. A hundred of those means anywhere up to about 14k gold sitting in a guild bank. Don’t forget that this then doubles with Cash Flow (Rank 2) at guild level 16.

Maybe I’m being melodramatic, but most guild leaders aren’t stupid, they’re going to notice a few hundred gold trickling into their guild vaults every day, and nobody’s going to see exactly how much they’ve deposited because it doesn’t show in the guild bank log. Most guilds also operate a policy of not giving free repairs to new members, or even only to officers. When you’re running a tight ship like that then where does the gold go?

Oh hi guildmaster, I didn’t see you there behind your armor crafted from Truegold and unicorn cunts.

Scheduled Maintenance

March 17, 2010 1 comment

I find myself doing the most pointless things during maintenances, the irony being that the moment I sign on I’ll just do similarly pointless things across a different medium. Tidying my room, tidying my character bank’s, sleeping, rested experience, making some phonecalls, talking to my guild, yeah. Yet still I can’t shake that awful empty feeling I get when WoW is offline. Normally I can sleep through it, recently I haven’t been sleeping an awful lot and when your body wakes up at 7 AM with three hours of sitting around to do, you tend to waste an awful lot of time.

I spent most of my time reading up on various things for my classes, a Druid guide, a Shaman guide (not that I need the guidance, but it’s nice to consult with others to at least have an understanding of different points of view), the MMO-Champion forums, YouTube, Tankspot, the usual WoW resource zones.

I know when I sign on that I’m going to do the same thing I do every day, transmute two sets of epic gems (Alchemy is quite a lazy man’s money spinner, I can make 250g per day just by buying some AH mats and whacking the finished product back on for a 500% profit over the mat cost, more if I get Transmuation Mastery procs), do the daily Heroic on my Priest and Shaman for Emblems of Frost, see if I can find a group for the weekly (currently Razorscale(fail), disgusting) on both characters, do the daily normal on my Warlock and Paladin, then go hover around in Blackrock Depths on my Druid. And yet, this routine which will take up perhaps six or seven hours of my day alone before our Icecrown raid with Wrath of Wisdom tonight is one that keeps me content with WoW, it’s not fun but it’s not dull, though I find a lot more of my time nowadays is spent on alts just for the fact that they give me something do to.

In other news, I’m really hoping that I win my DKP bid today. Our guild bank has 6 Primordial Saronites in it at the minute, and they’re being ‘auctioned off’ using DKP points, I need three more for my epic new Earthsoul Boots and I’m really hoping that I’ve put enough DKP into bidding so that I will win them, if not I’ll have to wait another three weeks until there’s another auction up again, that or actually go earn gold (shudder). I might amend my bid last minute, pump another couple of DKP into it, I had until midday today until the winners are announced, so wish me luck!
