    Default 'Correction' to guild status purchasing?

    From patch notes:

    Guild members without permission to purchase guild status items will no longer be able to do so.


    Which is understandable, but for as long as I can remember if you were not in a guild you could still purchase city faction items if you had sufficient faction built up with them (e.g. member title with the Coalition of Tradesfolk, not the general city merchant). Now my unguilded characters cannot purchase titles/furnishings, and I am getting a message that my guild has not given me those permissions.

    Intentional?

    I know that if you're guilded and you rank hasn't permission to buy, there's a message when you mouseover the item at the city merchant, but I never actually tried to buy anything.

    it's always been my understanding that the intention of the city factions wasn't to raise your personal standing with the parts of the city, but your guild's standing. while the rewards - such as titles - are personal, the primary achievement was meant to be guild-related. why they didn't then link faction to guild...? i'm not sure. too complicated at release? guild features were much simpler then.

    Yes, especially Patrons and Status/Level Decay. I miss those days. Good times. Good times.

    This was an unintended side-effect of a bug that allowed people without permission to purchase guild-level-restricted status items such as mounts. I pushed in a fix for it today, it _should_ make it into the next hotfix.
