Original Shards

daysofourknives and I finally got our original characters through Ascension. Woohoo! It's about time. Only took like a year and a half? And we did it without the help of more experienced friends who'd done it before, which makes me happy.

Also, if you haven't checked your accounts in a long time you may want to see what you got for birthday presents for your characters! Every year you get one, and they're pretty cute. Little mini-pets. :-)

We're talking ascension! Woohoo!Collapse )

New GW?

GW - Sidana
The add-on will be known as Eye of the North, and stands to be released in Q3 of 2007. The price of the add-on is not known at the time of annoucement, but it will be less than already present campaigns. In order to play the game, gamers must own at least one of the already released GW campaigns, like Nightfall, Factions or Prophecies.

Eye of the North brings a conclusion what happened in Tyria after Guild Wars: Prophecies ended, and as such - is 100% oriented towards games with characters of maximum level. We know GW gamers want the numbers, so here they are: 18 new multi-level dungeons, 40 new armour sets, 10 new Heroes and massive 150 new skills, out of which 50 belong only to PvE (Player versus Enviroment).

The article is here and also says that this is the last expansion until GW2 in 2009ish. A whole lot of people are WTF about this, obviously. Gaile Gray is saying some of what the article says is true and some not but they're not talking more about it right now. It has a lot of people wondering if the old charries will be able to be carried over to the new games somehow, if GW1 will still be running, or if they'll jsut shut down GW1 and make everyone buy the new one, sort of like The Sims 2 did. I'm thinking with the money people sunk into GW1, they're not going to be happy if they're just dumped. I know I'd be pretty ticked. It should be an interesting couple months while we get more info about this.

I'm really liking the Paragon class so far. They're supposed to combine warrior and monk, and I think they do it reasonably well. So far with just the basic skills I have some adrenaline use, and some decent healing (one that heals both ally and yourself for like 50 pts, which is half my health to start), plus some stuff to increase damage and to increase health regen. I don't know what I'd use for secondary, but I'm thinking ritualist would kick ass, and so would mesmer.

I have no empty slots to try Dirvish. :o( I could buy one, I suppose, but I think I'll just wait. If you pre-order Nighfall you get an extra character slot (they give 2 normally and this way you get three more), plus the cool bonus weapons. I might go to the mall and put down my meager $10 of whatever it is - or if Best Buy has it get it for like $5.

Is it crazy to think about buying another expansion pack when I haven't even gotten to the main section of Factions yet? Probably. But I like the look of this one so much better, so far. Besides, maybe with the addition of "heroes" to the party you can play solo better. With Henchies it's almost impossible in some areas, but if you could give cool gear to henchies, and they leveled with you? Mmmm. Now you're talking.

So...the subscription for our Teamspeak server is coming due this week. Since looking at the list of the folks in our guild, there are only two people (plus me) who've signed into Guild Wars in the last three weeks (the other two haven't in more than two weeks), I'm not so sure I want to pay the money to keep the server going. But since we're a guild I thought I'd see what your thoughts were about it, rather than just making a decision. Are you guys thinking of playing again, and will it be fairly regularly? Because if not, a server seems like a waste of my money, to me.

If you could just let me know, that'd be great. Thanks guys and girls.

Mesmer Armor

Dr Who - Bad Wolf
Jill! Did you see the 15K Kurzick armor for Mesmers? I think it's fabulous!! They don't have pics for the regular Kurzick on Guildwiki, but it's usually similar to the 15K.
