So it is definitely reset when you join a different guild.
Well, yeah, that's kind of the point with the guild reputation I think.
Guild reputation is limited by:
A) You actually have to do stuff with your guild. I think reputation is
awarded for doing quests (I guess to get everyone to a certain level
while levelling up and via dailies for everyone else) and by doing guild
runs in dungeons/raids. What this means is that you can not just join a
guild, not log on for 2 months and be exalted, grab the rewards and
leave. You have to be an _active_ guild member.
B) There is a weekly (I think) cap on the reputation. This means you can
not just join a high level guild and "powerlevel" your reputation, grab
your reward and leave.
IMO, this system is not bad to actually keep the guild rewards how
Blizzard wants them to be: To get the best rewards your guild has to
offer you have to be an active, long term member. Guild hoppers will
have a hard time grabbing any rewards. I guess for most of us who are in
guilds they actually like the rewards will just come eventually.
(Actually, with the whole guild exp cap even my relatively small guild
with maybe 25 active players seems to keep up with the levels,
achievements of course can take a long time)
The problem is it takes a very very long time to grind guild rep, so you
are basically locked in to a guild permanently, because the process of
starting over with a guild is a massive undertaking.
I leveled from 80 to 85 on my guild and have completed all the cata
zones (getting the quest achievement for every one). That got me to just
barely into honored. Since then I've done a few guild 5-mans, but since
I don't feel I am raid ready at an iLevel of 340ish or so, and mostly
pvp gear, I haven't been raiding. I am less than halfway through
honored. For the first two weeks of Cat, I was the #1 or #2 contributor
to guild xp.
Unless I start raiding (and I am not a huge fan of raiding under the
best of circumstances since I do not like playing for 4-6 hours at a
stretch) it will be many more months before I get to Revered, and
Exalted is a long long way off.
Sure, if I did 25 dailies every day, I'd be moving faster, but the ONLY
thing dailies do is give me ~40 guild rep and some useless pogs... er, I
mean gold I don't need. I try and do the cooking daily in Stormwind
every day just so I can get all the recipes, but I average only 3 times
a week or so. I do 5 mans (no guild rep unless it is a guild run) and
battlegrounds (no guild rep) and I've gotten a truckload of achievements
recently (again, no guild rep).
So, if I were unhappy with my guild (I'm not) and wanted to switch, I'd
be looking at probably at least 6 months to get to where I am right now,
since it's not like I can go back and do the Cat zones over again.
But, do you *need* guild rep? Not really, from the sounds of it. I go
for it from completism, as it is, I don't have any need beyond revered
(and I only wanted revered so my factions would count for guild
achievements), and I don't see much requirement for anyone who doesn't
specially care about guild rep, to get it. You may miss a couple of
rewards but they're all optional really. So it only locks you into a
guild if you want rep with that particular guild, if you don't, it's
no loss to not have it.
