Guild Cloaks and Barding Add-Ons: Is it worth $US125?

Hey all, your favorite cutie pie is here! Yay! \(^_^)/
I have a question in regards to the Guild Cloaks and Barding Add-On, I'm thinking on buying it before the end date (whenever that is for KS pledgers) but I'm not sure if it's worth the $US125. What are your thoughts / opinions on the matter? Should I get it? >v<

    I can't speak for anyone but myself. My opinion is that those rewards would be great if you are intending on running a guild. If you aren't, then you risk losing them if you gift them to a guild. Good luck with your decision :)

    Short answer is absolutely not!

    We can only assume what it is at face value (there is no other detail or image) and that it is a purely visual item that is very likely to be replaced within the first handful of levels (by items with actual stats).  Think in the future, what is the likely-hood that you, your guild leader, or your guild offices are going carry these items around to wear?

    Also, it is limited to only 10!  what happens in a year or two with character turnover? Do they get to keep everything, is there a way to take the items back?  no one knows and it is very likely that even IS at this stage has no idea how it will work.

    You are paying $125 for a short duration and limited supply item that you may never get back.  Do you believe it is worth it?

    Aren't they attached to the account and not to the guild? Or am I a stupid idiot?

    They are attached to the account and can be taken back. I can't remember whether is was from Steven or a mod on Discord, or a mod forum post. I am not going to search through all the crap for the specific quote. They really need to stop throwing information out on multiple platforms and not having a basic search function or compilation area. Would save tons of time and eliminate the exact same topics cropping up week after week as someone finds out about the game, comes in, and then starts a thread about stuff that has been debated for weeks already. (ie. flying, pvp, and so on)

    Edit: I am not against debate. I am pained by having to search through multiple sources to help people get the correct information from official sources, rather than a couple idiots just making stuff up.

    Hopefully with the web developers being hired, all of our issues will disappear! SoonTM

    Why would they not include that information with the item or in a place easy to find and verify like say an FAQ in regard to KS/Summer exclusive items.  Its like slamming your head against the wall, with that said this is also just a statement that can be wordsmithed away like others before it.

    So caveat emptor in all that you buy from IS.

    The reward becomes an asset of the guild, so the ownership will no longer be in the hands of the original purchaser. This is the reason I advised the OP to be careful unless they are going to be running the guild themselves.

    Hmmmm..... I remember a statement along the lines of "There will be a mechanic in place to change guild leadership through combat and other challenges." I wonder how they are going to deal with the inevitable "I formed my guild and it was taken away, and now I have lost the items that I paid for!" if that is the case going forward.

    I stand corrected!

    Where did they say that? I remember seeing where they said "nodes leaders can be replaced with various types of systems combat, voting ect.."
    But for guild leaders being replaced? Would like to see quotes if you have them

    Was one of the video Q&As where they answered a question. Question was how they were going to handle guild leaders who quit or left game for long periods of time. Think it might have been #10.

    It becomes guild property once applied which I think is fine - I imagine after launch there will be other Guild capes/accessories that will be available within the game and on the game store. The KS appearance will be a unique design and the Summer Backer appearance will be another unique design and probably not available in the game store at a future date. I don't think it will reflect the prices of these type of items at launch.
    I imagine we will have a wider variety of guild capes/accessories somewhat like the Tabard system in WoW with many options to choose from over the course of time :)
    So the question is - do you want unique ones or not~

    Tbh I wouldn't spend that much on anything this early until we get images and more detail. I know it's tempting but anything above $20 purchase might be better to see what your buying 

  • Options
    I would only buy this if I was running the guild and I wanted to recruit members. A good guild look can go a long way. And I would only buy it after I saw what I was buying. How about making it so you buy the barding and once in game and your guild is established you can go in and customize the look of the stuff? You can make it unique to the guild.

    ...i don't see any pie. 

    $125 and there is 20 items total(i think?) puts each item at $6.25 which i think is worth the value but I would only buy it if it was for friends.

    Not worth it to me BUT I don't plan on starting / running a guild.

    For me, I'm planning to start a small guild with a couple of friends and all, but now that I know that it goes to the guild itself and there's a chance I could lose said benefits, I'm kinda put off from buying it. If it were cheaper then I might think "yeah, why not, it's not too much", but as it is, nope.

    If you was going to run a guild then this feature will be pretty good, imagine your guild members showing of the capes and you can get some good street cred and reputation haha :smiley:
