Guild Wars 2 Catch All

Just out of curiosity, which zones are you spending time in? I was home sick earlier this week and LA was in overflow all day, the dragons always had a good crowd and the newbie zones were surprisingly active.

DuckiDeva and I both got boxes in the mail.
We both participated and looted the chest during the event, though we were in our 30s-40s at the time.

In the 2nd box(support mail), I got another 20-slot bag and L80 earring, the default drops, as well as 2 rares I won't use, and exotic I won't use, and an exotic I can't use.
Since the loot is level-scaled, she at least got some pants she'll wear, even though she's still in her 40s.

Sure, a precursor would have been a nice jackpot to take care of gold for a good long while, but a 2nd 20-slot bag is huge. That's worth, what, 20ish gold on the TP, were I to just buy a 20slotter?

I'm glad they are trying to "do right" by the customers that had problems, and I'm glad they seem to be erring on the side of generosity.

I tried looking for a fractal run in LA and then moved over to Orr to find a zerg. finally moved over to WvW and couldnt find much action there either.

Hi All,

I just picked this up. My first foray into MMO territory, and so far I've been very impressed.

I rolled an Asura Elementalist, on Anvil Rock. Name is Dave Nine.2164, looking for any friends or n00b advice.

Living in Australia means that I'm unlikely to get to play with a lot of you, however I'll take what I can get at this stage

It took a bit of trial and error but I sent you an invite Dave_Nine.2164 on Anvil Rock. If you want access to all the nice stuff from the guild you'll have to join us on NSP though.

What's an NSP?.....not kidding.

EDIT: Nevermind. Northern Shiverpeaks, for those playing at home....or under a rock, as it were.

I am the epitomy of a n00b, literally coming into all of this with 0 experience, having never played anything like it before. Fresh meat/Purdy mouth, and all that

Northern ShiverPeaks, the server we're mainly on. You're most likely set as a "Lost Soul," a rank we made for to people who are in the guild, but not on our primary server. You'll slowly gain influence (think of it as guild currency) by yourself (and other Lost Souls on Anvil Rock) for logging in and playing, and be able to buy upgrades, so long as you're representing the guild. Once you've accepted be sure to hit the "Represent" button on the guild panel, otherwise you won't be able to use the guild chat, earn/spend influence, or use any existing guild upgrades. If you want to join us on NSP, there's an option (bottom left I think) to change your home server on the character select screen.

Thank ye kind sir.

Welcome Dave9.
Some of us in the guild are also playing within Oceanic time zones. So keep in eye on the guild chat and don't be afraid to ask questions on there.

Absolutely, Dave9, I'm on GMT+4, we're not all in the States! But yeah, definitely try to switch to Northern Shiverpeaks, it'll be easier.

quick question... roughly how many of you are on during those times, and is there usually an officer?

I am on during those times often and am an officer but you are already in the guild so all you need to do is represent

If I'm on, I'm on during the day between 9am and 4pm (roughly) for GMT+4. Sometimes in the evening after dinner like yesterday. Question, though, do you guys mostly use Ventrilo or the guild chat? I've been too shy to log onto Ventrilo up til now.

I mostly use guild chat for when I'm running around on my own, and only use vent when I'm in a group. I'd probably join vent more often if I knew there were other people on it as well.

Since it came up earlier in guild chat, this site has countdowns to the dragon spawns as well as the location, level, and nearest waypoint.

They've got a different page with more of the meta-events, but I'm not sure what the "# event(s) outdated" means.

Wow, new LFG tool. It's an app. It's a website.

You can create a LFG line and it crosses servers.

I am going to be using this no doubt.

I have been using that for a few weeks now. It works pretty well.

I use guild chat unless I'm doing a dungeon. Even then, I'm not a chatty person and listen a lot more than I talk.

Just tried to log in and I'm getting connection errors. Er... Happy Wintersday?

I had the same, but it's downloading now. I think everyone was who was waiting for Wintersday to start flooded the login severs.

As usual rifles get no love (special winter effect weps)

Isn't there a pop gun?

There are a bunch of wood weps but then there is a 2nd tier that has special winter looking effects. For halloween the rifle was that ugly looking pumpkin thing

Even the legendary rifle is considerably blander looking than most of the other legendaries.

Another update tonight. http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Game...

Not much in it but found this interesting:

Fixed a bug with diminishing returns affecting the daily rewards from the Wintersday dungeons. We will be following up in the next few days with our plans for the players impacted by this problem.
