The Cataclysm beta currently features a Requires Authenticator
checkbox in the guild controls for each rank in a guild. Once activated
for a rank, you cannot promote someone to that rank unless he or she is
using an authenticator. At this time, the highest rank below Guild
Master defaults to Requires Authenticator's being checked, and all other
ranks default to its being off.
This is a much more reliable tool than making members show their Core Hound Pup in order to get guild bank privileges,
which was really the only way to verify authenticator use before. Of
course, this is the beta, and that means the functionality may change
drastically before making it to live, if it does. I predict, however,
that Blizzard will try its very best to release this setting, as its use
should reduce time spent recovering stolen bank items.
Guild leaders, will you use this feature? Guild officers, what is your opinion of this change?
