The Guild Leader Episode #27
The little things mean a lot!
For anyone that is a reader here on Beer and Joysticks you know that we talk a lot of crap in our articles and just have fun with a lot of what goes on in gaming. I normally draw the line here in the guild leader articles and try to keep things on the serious side.
So today I figure I would talk about things we kind of forget about or over look as a guild leader.
The little things!
As a guild leader there are times when you need to pick and choose what are the best possible route to go about doing things and then there are things which you don’t really even think about that do so much more for your members.
You probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about! Well sometimes you do things like help a member with a quest that they can’t complete, it only takes a few minutes so it’s no skin off your back, plus its fun to interact with your guild mates.
That might not seem like much but that might mean a lot to the person you just helped.
More little things!
One thing that I do in my guild is we have an exchange of crafting materials. I rarely use all the materials that I get on regular day anyway so I’ll let someone who needs these materials have them without question. I tend to be a hoarder of materials, because when I feel like crafting I will craft for a while so I tend to over stock what I really need.
Gather materials can be a big pain in the butt, given up yours can help a guildie enormously.
The little things add up!
Sometimes as a guild leader you feel as though you are nothing more than a baby sitter, but believe me as you grow as a guild leader you will do less and less of those types of things.
There are lots of little thing like this that add up over time and this is just one way to keep your members happy. A lot of the time we overlook the little things as the guild leader, but this is some of things that we really should be taking care of.
The rewards of being a guild leader very easily outweigh the bad times, it is something everyone that plays game should try once.
