The plan was to create a guild with a Hawaiian name filled with pandas, also with Hawaiian names.
But, sometimes plans change.
In our case, there was a convergence of things.
First, there are only three of us at the moment. And while it only takes five people to create a guild at this point, none of us felt like being one of those people standing in Orgrimmar trying to bribe or cajole people into please signing their guild charter. So we were stuck two signatures shy for almost a week.
Then, for our first dive into this round of Azeroth, it seems like we are a bit less about grouping and a bit more about straight up going for levels and exploring various corners of the game ourselves. Kihei has been off into the quest lines, my daughter has suddenly picked up the urge to be a healer in dungeon finder runs, and I have been exploring the changes to the horde side of things and playing with pet battles. So we haven’t been really acting as a group for now.
Finally, there seems to be plenty of choices for guilds out there. Running through the low level zones, you get plenty of random invites from guilds. I started taking screen shots of invites at one point, though they do not represent even a quarter of how many I got while running around in Azshara.
Fortunately, Kihei was able to pick through the chaff of invites and find us a guild we could feel comfortable with.
A level 25 guild with all the benefits and pretty much free entry. Anybody in the guild can invite people. So we have opted, for now, to take advantage of the boosts the guild has to offer while figuring out what we want to do in the longer term.
