- Guild Experience Points
Guild Leveling is a feature which will allow guilds to level in a way similar to characters. There will be 25 levels for a guild to progress through. Experience towards level progression is gained through Guild Experience Points (GEP). GEP is earned six different ways:
- Raid and Dungeon boss kills
- Guild xp for boss kills is scaled on a few factors.
- Boss level
- Normal / Heroic
- Amount of guild members present (more xp for raids, since they are limited to once a week)
- 20/25 - 25 player raid
- 8/10 - 10 player raid,
- 4/5 - dungeons
- 10/40 - 40 player raid
- Old 25 and 40 man raids (Vanilla, TBC, and WOTLK) only require 8/25
- Amount of guild members present
- Amount of guild members present
- 8/10 - 10 player BG
- 20/25 - 25 player BG
- Experienced is scaled to Character Level
- Daily Quest included
[*]An individual player's profession progression
There is a GEP cap in place. Blizzard has said they want both 10 and 25 man guilds to earn experience at the same time.
Daily Cap is 6,240,000 exp.
Points granted from Achievements do not count towards the Cap.
For each level, the guild is awarded a special perk. These perks will add convenience to guild-related activities like raid-wide resurrection after a wipe or raid-wide summons. Perks are usable by anyone in the guild with the proper Guild Reputation.
Perks the requires Mana, like Mass Rez, have been reworked.

It's safe to assume TBC and WOTLK Guild Achievements will still grant XP, but at reduce gains.
Any action that grants Guild Experience Points also grants individual Guild Reputation. It appears from Beta that will take longer to get to exalted that Lvl 25. A blue poster did say:
- XP is currently not being earned for all the dungeons, only Throne of the Tides, Blackrock Caverns and The Stonecore are giving XP. In our next build, ALL dungeons going back to classic will give guild XP. Guild XP gained from bosses is based on the bosses level and is modified by things like the number of players in your party/raid and if the encounter is heroic or not.
- XP is currently not being given out for rated BG's. (obviously, since they are not on beta)
- XP is currently not being given out for Achievements. This will also be implemented in our next build. Note that guild achievements give large amounts of XP at a time and for this reason, they will not respect the daily cap.
- P for quests if working correctly and most of your leveling has been based off of this alone so far.
- As far as rep gain goes, you need to remember that rep gain is based on your guild xp contribution. As you can see from my notes above, you currently only have one way to contribute, quests. Once our next build goes live and you can earn guild XP from boss kills, this rate should increase. You can expect a similar increase from rated BGs. Before you ask, guild achievements do not grant guild rep since they are earned by the entire guild.
- Members can buy special items (with gold) based on their current reputation level and the Guilds Current Level. These items are bound to the guild; if a member possessing a guild item leaves the guild, the item is returned to the guild bank. These items will be purchased via special guild vendors.
Also note that you will need to be at a certain reputation in order for your guild to get credit for certain Achievements. ATM there isn't a list of what achievements require what rep.
All reputations are retroactive. If you have the rep now, it will count in the guild achievement. Also note that the reputations have to be separate. Having Argent Dawn at exalted on 8 members still only counts as one towards the achievement.
Don't forget that this achievement requires revered guild faction for any of your reputations to count.
This is implemented to prevent people from jumping from guild to guild instantly completing that achievement and then leaving.
Once your guild has reached level 25 and once you have raised your guild reputation to exalted, their are 2 faction specific, bind on Account, mounts available for purchase from the guild vendor.
