Yes, we're breaking the first rule of Brawler's Guild.

For those of you that haven't been following along, the Brawler's Guild is a new feature being introduced to World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria in patch 5.1. This new part of the World of Warcraft has generated a lot of excitement — not to mention a few questions — so we're going to try to provide a clearer picture of what we're hoping to accomplish with the Brawler's Guild in this thread.

First, a little bit about what it is, and what it isn't:

What Brawler's Guild Is

A fun, but small diversion that could grow in time
A venue for a realms community to come together
A unique way to earn some solo PvE bragging rights
A cool place to hang out

What Brawler's Guild Isn't

A means of solo progression
A major patch feature accessible to everyone (at first)
A way to earn lots of in-game rewards
Proving Grounds where you can develop class skills (that's a different feature arriving later on)

So, to sum up, we're trying to give the Brawler's Guild a tight knit, underground kind of feel, and we expect the Guild on each realm to slowly grow to encompass more and more of the population over time. Because invites will be so limited, it's likely that a lot of the players that join the Brawler's Guild will have had some kind of interaction with one or more existing members before they ever step into the ring. Finally, a smaller population will help keep the queues low for quite a while – since a big part of the Brawler's Guild is watching other players fight their own battles, right now instancing arenas or using phasing isnt an attractive option.

About Those Invites

Invites to the Guild will (at least initially) only be available for purchase on the Black Market Auction House. We've taken this approach both to control queue times, and also because the Brawler's Guild is meant to be kind of a small, underground thing, and a way for players on a realm to come together. At first, that will happen because invites will go out from one player to another based on who buys those initial Black Market invites. After reaching a certain rank in the Brawler's Guild, each of the new members can eventually earn one new invitation of their own to pass out to someone else on the same realm, so the Brawler's Guilds on each realm should get progressively larger and larger over time. We may also investigate alternate methods of acquiring invitations or making them more plentiful.

World First?

We've also decided that attaching a realm first style achievement to the Brawler's Guild isn't necessarily the right move. Rest assured that there will be other achievements to earn in the ring though.

We know you've got questions, so ask away, and we'll try to clarify where things are hazy.

I want to pwn Millhouse Manastorm bad.

He's a dirty little traitor, he sided with twilight's hammer after we had saved him in that BC dungeon.

I'd need to google it but I think he did show up somewhere in WotLK

and I'd like to teach Grand Warlock Wilfred Fizzlebang a lesson or two too.
