World of Warcraft is watering down one of the core pillars the game was built on and the details on the feature have arrived.

World of Warcraft gained a whole lot of popularity thanks to its conflict between the Alliance and the Horde but pretty much everyone loved the temporary team-ups in moments like Wrath of the Lich King.

However, Blizzard seems to either have misread the cues or they are running out of players for matchmaking, which prompted them to make the two factions friendlier than ever.

Cross-faction guilds are coming on May 2, 2023, with the Embers of Neltharion update and here is how they will work.

The guild's affiliation will be decided by the faction of the leader. So if an Orc starts a guild, all the guild achievements and vendors will be Horde-aligned.

Guild members from the opposite faction will still make use of unlocked shared perks, repairs and chat but will be locked out of contributing to some achievements. If a human is in a Horde guild, they can't contribute to the Alliance Slayer achievement as they won't attack allied faction members in the open world.

Finally, if someone wants to join a guild on the opposite side, they need to be a part of that community or friends with members of the guild to receive the invitation.

On top of that, they will still be considered unfriendly to each other in the open world, or hostile if War Mode is on, so be prepared to see some guildies beating each other up.
