postheadericon Warcraft Elite Guide – Starting Your Own Guild

The rest of this guide is both for play and for gold making – and is titled the Warcraft Elite Guide.

There are approximately 120 more pages to post – being perhaps 50 –60 posts left from this point :-)


For the server domination strategy you will need two guilds (one Horde and one Alliance) and two characters in each guild. This Multi Market Approach cannot be done in one Warcraft Account !

  • Check out where the guild master is in your local town and buy a blank charter for 10 silver
    Ask a guard where the guild master is.  (They can be very helpful)
  • Go to the trade channel (/2) then offer 1g for each signature on your charter. The best place to 
    camp yourself is in the starter zone for level 1 characters. 1G will seem a fortune for genuine noobs
  • Say up front that they will only need to be members of your guild for an hour or so.
  • When you have 9 signatures (So 10 members including yourself) take the charter back to the
    Guild master.
  • Go into your social / guilds tab on the taskbar. Make sure you are the guildmaster (you should be) then  dismiss the other 9. Hey presto your own guild. More importantly you now have 98 more bag slots, that you can access from any bank in the guild vault

The next part is a bit trickier.

Once one character is in the guild, you need to get the rest in.
The way to do it is invite someone into your guild and promote them to the second level. (the rank below yours) then ask them to wait while you log on with your second character, the guy you invited then returns the favor by inviting your second character.
Finally switch log back on as your guild leader and dismiss the guy who assisted you from the guild.

Pay say 2 to 5g for this, and make it clear what you are doing!


There is no need to be underhand, someone will want to help. You might even return the favour.

Again you don’t need to do any of this, but it really gives you a massive head start.

Just a quick word here about the social aspect of the game, and being in a solo guild.

It may have crossed your mind that this isn’t the best thing to do to be sociable.

Well, obviously it’s not.

However, two points should be raised here

  •   It does not have to be permanent – you can change your mind
  •   You can join normal guilds with other characters – or as we do swap now and again. Most of our new
      ‘toons get the right level and then do a spell at the AH’s.  This swapping is also useful in other ways.
      Other  regular AH users will recognize your ‘toon eventually, you don’t want grief now do you ?

A word of warning here – make sure the guild bank is empty – or you trust the person you’ve hired
when you invite an outsider to re-recruit for you. After all they could just empty it – it does happen.

Once you have 4 characters – 2 horde – 2 alliance  and 1 from each faction at their own faction AH, and one at a neutral AH – you are in business.


You will need a friend or a ‘toon on a second account at the neutral AH to trade “cross faction” with –

Now, even with as little as 20g you can start wheeling and dealing !

We tend to leave these characters here semi-permanently and then continue to play with other characters, but the choice is yours

Here’s the set up then.

Cross Faction Auction House Setup

So the multi-market option is where really big money can be made..
“Hang on, that must involve buying and selling using the neutral AH’s to move stock between factions..they charge 15% commission”.

Yes, they do, so what?

This 15% mark is what turns a lot of people off the cross market idea. It looks like it takes a big chunk of your profit potential AND then you have to sell it again at a neutral auction.

There are two ways to think about this.

The variance between the Horde and Alliance market for some items is so great, that paying 15% still leaves you with a very good profit, and a faster turnover because;

There is greater variation between markets than there is deviation in a single market, Often enough to cover the extra tariff and more.

The turnover is quicker, you do not often have to wait for a market to shift, you can buy from one market and be selling to another within minutes at a good markup. Turnover is important.

The Auction cut is based on YOUR SELLING PRICE. So here is an idea (not without risk)

Go to the neutral AH, post your items with a VERY LOW selling price. Switch ‘toon immediately to the ‘Toon from the opposing faction (you do have the opposing ‘toon (or buddy you wil share profits with) stood right next to the AH don’t you). Buy the items straight away. You pay tax on the very low price.


I stress again – you cannot do this on one account. The game will not let you.

Of course this is very risky. Someone could grab your stuff before you have time to log off and back on again.

Some ways to minimize risk.

You might want to have two accounts, or a friend or guild mate from the other faction both online at the same time, one posting, the other spamming refresh to buy the items. Keep spamming refresh on the item search until they pop up, then buy immediately.

Do these transfers when the server is quiet. Late night or first thing in the morning during the working week.
Don’t set 1copper as the buyout. Set a strange sum like 12 silver 17 copper. Someone will spot 1 copper this just from a quick scan, it will take them valuable seconds for an odd sum to register.
