    Default Update 13.1 - question about guild bounties

    Quote from U13.1 release notes:
    All characters in a guild will earn Bounties for reaching certain level thresholds! New players and returning players (players whose characters have not logged in for the past sixty days) will earn additional Bounties for any guild they belong to as they reach certain level thresholds:

    New characters who reach level 8 and have not used Veteran Status earn two Large Bounties.
    New and returning characters who hit levels 12 and 16 earn one Large Bounty.
    New and returning characters who hit level 20 earn two Large Bounties.
    Non-new and non-returning characters earn a Small Bounty for their guild at levels 12, 16, and 20.
    So which is it -- "new and returning players" or "new and returning characters"? Do I have to be entirely out of the game for past 60 days to qualify for Large bounty, or just one of my toons?

    What are these bounties? I haven't heard or seen anything about these yet. Is there an official thread describing these?

    Click on the link I provided in OP. Or, if you are too lazy to click , here it is:
    Large Bounties offer a 25,000 Guild Renown and five Astral Diamonds, while Small Bounties offer a 2,500 Guild Renown.
    All Bounties are subject to guild size bonuses, and are affected by Guild Renown Elixirs.
    Additionally, new and returning players who are grouped with fellow guild members earn +10% XP and +1 Loot. Non-new and non-returning players who are grouped with new or returning guild members earn +5% XP and +1 Loot.

    Those are the Lamannia release notes, not the live one's. That is for a future, limited term event.

    I read it as new or returning characters of new or returning players, but wish I didn't

    it's gotta be players. I mean come on, you know how much level 1 to 8 farming and resetting their would be? Personally I wouldn't care as it might offset decay, but ya get the point.

    Their'd be farm group skipping the ship and the noob island would prolly have at least 4 instances when it went live.

    I just wish they would help us husband/wife guilds as mine is almost lvl 32 and it has taken me half a year to get it there on my own. Anything, please, is most welcomed.

    Any idea when that will be? Since returning players will have to return during the event it would be helpful to know so that I can start talking old friends into coming back.

    As I said I welcome anything Turbine does to help guilds out.

    My best guess would be either as part of the expansion or the first update afterwards. I couldn't imagine this being part of a patch

    Create 4 F2P accounts and log into them once every 30 days so you get the max renown bonus. 300% with 6 active accounts...

    Can we have announcements later, but a clearer explanation now?

    The impression I got from the explanation on Lam was that it was new and returning accounts.

    I suppose that's further incentive to put off my inglorious return. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes I had issues with the wording as well.

    But I think it should read, as this is how it will be:
    • All characters in a guild will earn Bounties for reaching certain level thresholds!
    • New players and returning players (players whose characters have not logged in for the past sixty days) will earn additional Bounties for any guild they belong to as they reach certain level thresholds:
      • New characters who reach level 8 and have not used Veteran Status earn two Large Bounties.
      • New and returning characters who hit levels 12 and 16 earn one Large Bounty.
      • New and returning characters who hit level 20 earn two Large Bounties.
    • Non-new and non-returning characters earn a Small Bounty for their guild at levels 12, 16, and 20.
