Reseña del editor
Who said dragon slaying was easy? Leading a guild in massively multiplayer online (MMO) games like World of Warcraft is more difficult than most players think. Your members look to you to solve problems, plan raids and battles, and lead them to riches and renown.
In The Guild Leader's Handbook, you'll learn how to create, build, and maintain a successful guild. Author Scott F. Andrews, a longtime guild leader and guild advice columnist for WoW.com, will show you how to guide your guild to glory. Whether you're trying to confront a monstrous threat, conquer your rivals, or simply reign supreme as the wealthiest traders in the galaxy, The Guild Leader's Handbook offers invaluable guidance to help you achieve your goals.
You'll learn how to:
- Plan successful raids, player vs. player battles, roleplaying sessions, and contests
- Deal with problem players and keep a lid on guild-fracturing drama
- Solve loot issues and choose the best loot system for your guild
- Boost your guild's morale, reputation, and server presence
- Promote and motivate an effective officer corps
- Organize fun and safe real-world guild meetings and events
Whether you're an established guild leader in need of sage advice or a dedicated player seeking to form your own community, The Guild Leader's Handbook is an essential guide to managing a guild successfully in any MMO game.

This book explains everything nicely and really is written almost like a small business guide like The Small Business Start-Up Kit: A Step-by-Step Legal Guide. It's very thorough, it goes step-by-step and the author obviously knows what he's talking about. He gives a lot of thorough background on problems facing guilds, how to differentiate and create a guild identity, recruiting, events, what rules to setup regarding loot, raiding, meetings, and the dreaded gkick. It's tremendously insightful stuff. The author writes extremely well and is very well organized and succinct.
The only downside is the book could use a sense of humor. Some of this MMO stuff is so ridiculous that I couldn't help but laughing. For instance, the author talked about his intolerance for lies from people missed raids. Some people have lives. I mean, it's just a game, the author treats it as reverentially as a firstborn son.
I've managed guilds before when they were nothing more than glorified chat channels, and the field has changed greatly since the days of EQ and FFXI.
This book concisely lays out many situations which a guild leader will come up against and should prepare for. It also does an excellent job of outlining tools that can be used, and how to deal with the unavoidable drama that will eventually rear its head.
Good read and this may become required reading for my own officers as well.
