RIFT - GWJ & Immortalis - where do I go now?

Well, if you didn't know, we merged with into Immortalis. I would recommend that frequent GWJ forum goers and visitors stay here. The Immortalis forums are empty, there's little to no participation, and outside of raiding, little to no reason to go there. I doubt information you share will be put to good use, nor do I see you getting answers to pressing questions, like you do here.

In short, Immortalis may be a good raiding guild, but they lack the community GWJ has. Until I see a culture shift, I will frequent and post here, trying to help you (and get a few answers myself). I recommend you all do the same. However, if you're a level 50 and interested in raiding, you need to visit the main site and forums often, as that's where raiding coordination/scheduling and tactics/techniques will be (in theory).

I like the fact I'm no longer a Fairy Princess.

GWJ guild was hard to rank up in. Level 50 and raiding with the guild and still a fairy princess, hrmph.

One thing that struck me last night after I dropped guild and joined Immo is that there was a sh*tload of 50's on.

Still...I don't want to submerge myself in raiding until I can grind T2's more. I need a lot of little gear upgrades here or there. In that fight with the 2nd boss of GSB I started feeling guilty about my no doubt sh*tty chloro DPS since I was wearing a blue hat and necklace and whatnot. (I think our Raid needed more DPS for that fight...we could have beat it if we were PERFECT but perfection comes a lot easier in full T2 gear) I need to fill in gaps in my gear which is going to require grinding a bunch of T2's.

Which I am happy with. In fact i haven't even run all of the expert dungeons yet since I always do randoms for the extra plaques.

I agree with Shoal, I'll be posting here. I love the GWJ culture and I really only have enough room in my life to troll one forum. (okay...maybe 2 or 3 but the others are taken )

I am, and always will be, a casual raider. I will spend 12 hours raiding a dungeon over the weeknd if I have time but the next weekend I may not be able to make it. Because of the nature of my life it is difficult for me to commit to specific days and times.

I will try to stay informed of the raiding schedule and I'm around quite a bit so I should be able to make a lot of the runs but I simply can't plan my life around it. Too much chaos.

So far Immo seems nice enough. I haven't been on their vent so I can't speak to that. If people are still hanging out in GWJ vent let me know as I may do that occasionally.

Thank god we didn't merge with Guardian Slave Trade though...I feel sorry for the 25% of their players who are cool because the rest leave...something to be desired.

Edit: I hope we left enough officiers/ higher ranked people in the GWJ guild if we need to re-establish it as our main guild. My alt Zilly has recruitment privledges.

I'm keeping my crafting alts Zilly and Zoloid in GWJ. (level 21 mage and warrior)

My alts are all GWJ and CEO ranked, and going nowhere. My dual box account, Angus is the same. There is no worry or fear of not coming home again for anyone, should the need arise.

Also, I never questioned and would not, regarding the GWJ forums. We are all Goojers first, and before rift ever came out. Thus, and so, we remain. GWJ isn't a rift guild. It's an association of gamers and whatever games they play. No singular game makes any difference to who you are as a member of the GWJ family.

So long as we move and operate together online, then the guild tag we run with is irrelevant.

I'm a little confused. I've been playing the trial this weekend and I don't think I've ever gotten a hit when I type a /who gwj. This thread seems to indicate that GWJ players would now be found with a /who immortalis, but the "GWJ MMO Guild Info!" thread still lists a GWJ guild. I've also never been able to /join GWJAlliance as indicated in another thread here. I double-checked that I'm on Shatterbone / Defiant.

Are there so few GWJ Rift players that we don't really have much of a representation there or am I just not looking correctly?

I'm in game as Zway, btw.

Most GWJ'ers joined the guild Immortalis so we would be able to do 20 man raid content. You might be limited on joining chat channels and such because you are on a trial account.
The GWJ guild tag is still there as well as the gwjalliance chat channel.

Thanks. You were totally right. As soon as I purchased the game I could join the gwjalliance chat channel.

What's the levelling scene like over there?

At Immortalis? They seem to have several people in varying stages of leveling. It's sort of like GWJ, or any guild, just with about 2-3x the people we had.

Ducki, I saw you log in yesterday, but didnt get a tell to you before you logged off.

Komm too. When you log in, send a tell in GWJAlliance and we can get you migrated.

I rolled a new character on Shatterbone after trying a PvP server for a bit.

I took a break from playing right before the guild merger, apparently. I was somewhat surprised when I finally logged back in the other night. I'll try to switch over tonight or sometime this weekend if I see anyone on.
