Suprised there’s no answer to be found to this question
bump. this is an important topic for guilds preparing for TBC. The answer to this drastically changes the way we can prep our guild banks for the future
Bump for luck
What is the status of guild banks? Are they live in TBC beta right now?
They are nowhere to be found in beta.
We have not been planning to open guild banks with the launch of Burning Crusade Classic.
They’re going to come into the game in a future patch, and we’re working to make that happen sooner than it would have if we’d followed the original patch progression (guild banks were originally in the same patch as Zul’Aman).
Guys please add them sooner, we don’t want another Keyring situation, it’s a feature that makes the game much easier for everyone and should really be in the game from start.
Why are banks not in the game, but you have changes like the 2.4 mount cost and level 30 acquisition?
If gbanks aren’t at launch, then any and all features added in 2.4 and 2.3 need to be removed, too, for consistency.
Can you make the 6% DW Hit for Shamans work at least? That’d be nice.
This is disappointing. Its a QOL update that 100% of people would want. Please patch it in quickly.
Why? Can Blizzard give the player base one legitimate reason why this shouldn’t be available right away? Guild banks are a much bigger deal than other changes that have already been implemented.
“…followed the original patch progression (guild banks were originally in the same patch as Zul’Aman).”
You left in healing gear getting spell damage, Dustwallow questing, leveling improvements, and I’m sure there are more.
If you want to make it “authentic”- make it authentic.
Wow, thanks Blizz this is almost as useful as not having an armory to go with Classic it really improved my gameplay experience.
Wow… just… wow.
For allowing a lot of the 2.4.3 changed into the game at launch, and Guild Banks are one of the features NOT available?
The QoL GBs bring to the table is too huge to just say “sorry, it’s not time yet”. Now guilds are gonna continue be reliant on ONE PERSON to do anything “Guild Bank” related until you guys decide it’s “time” to let us have them.
Cherry picking what they want to work on…
Must be nice.
Meanwhile, there are some extremely blatant bugs still in the game, like tank heal buffs (Earth Shield/Prayer of Mending) giving threat to the healer and not the tank, the rock flayer dudes in Hellfire not using their stoneshield correctly, Eredar portraits still from WoD, etc, etc, etc.
If “technical limitation” is the reason for gbanks not being in the game, similar to the key rings for Classic launch, then this makes the June 1 launch date look even more stupid.
