  1. Thanks for your interest, but this event ended the weekend before last
  2. Ad Infinitum - A Comprehensive guide

    Great guide! I've actually not done much anything of this collection, so this will come in handy. For anyone interested, the cheapest way to get your starting Dark Energies would be to make some relatively cheap Ascended Heavy Armor - typically, Magi's (Hronk's) is cheap, so something like Hronk's Warfists tends to be a safe bet. If you want to check for yourselves, GW2Efficiency has a nice, always-up-to-date list of the cheapest Ascendeds. Typically we're talking somewhere in the area of 50g per Dark Energy. If you want to be a bit more extravagant you can craft Ascended Weapons that you just want for the skin and salvage those, but that feels a bit luxurious. On a semi-related note, the best way to unlock all the Ascended Weapon skins (if you're so inclined) would be to just craft each weapon type once and then statswap through all the different color types.
  3. The True Endgame

    A salute to all you who helped me clear the true endgame, both veterans and newbies. You know who you are. For those interested - your journey starts at Teku Nuhoch. I can say no more.
  4. I threw in some updates with regards to the second raid wing, Salvation Pass. Also, the Adrenal Mushroom mastery is no longer necessary - ANet removed most of the Adrenal Mushrooms from the raid, and instead made it so that all your cooldowns reset when you wipe, which I think is a pretty cool move by them.
  5. Commander Feedback

    Boo! (Heh, now I pretended to be useful but don't actually have to do any work. Plan successful )
  6. Full Healer Druid (PvE, raids)

    Still, getting two Cleric's (or Apothecary's) rings from Fractals and stowing them away on your Druid is relatively painless, and you can just replace them with Exotic Magi's based on your tank. By the way, I'm really regretting leaving the Staff I got from the Druid specialization collection as Cleric's... life would have been much easier if I had statswapped it to Magi's. I made a second Magi's staff, though, but I'm probably going to have to statswap the old one too. Losing the Sigil of Transference (or having to buy an Upgrade Extractor) really hurts, though
  7. Commander Feedback

    If you need a completely impartial person to give feedback to, I'm a good choice, seeing as I'm horrible at social stuff & remembering names and have no idea who 95% of our commanders even are, despite being one myself. #justNagbeinguseful
  8. Full Healer Druid (PvE, raids)

    I've done some updates based on new experience I've gained. In particular, I'm very much starting to favor full Magi's over anything else. It's very strong, and getting exotic Magi's trinkets is actually quite easy, if you have some Karma stored up or just get lucky with Fractal drops. I've also added some love to the less-known healing skills. With Exotic armor and trinkets, Ascended weapon and food + utility, I'm looking at ~1645 Healing Power. However, you'll probably start feeling good about your heals at around 1400 Healing Power, and they'll be passable at 1300. Still, the % boosts to your healing are at least as important or more, so Monk's runes, Delicious Rice Balls and Sigil of Transference/Benevolence are all good times. The full Ascended Magi's set with Infusions and everything (which I wouldn't recommend to anyone but the most dedicated healer!) has around 1800 Healing Power. While you can definitely get too much Toughness, you can't really get "too little dmg". As I said, there are offensive Druid builds, but more and more the Full Heal Druid is becoming popular, as it reduces a lot of pressure off of the team and allows your teammates to do full DPS without worrying about healing skills, dodging, and even allowing the team to facetank certain attacks and mechanics to keep doing DPS - for example, a strong healer can allow the team to just stand in the break bar AoEs on Gorseval and keep doing DPS. I will maintain my stance that I'd rather have a single Full Heal Druid than a hundred wannabe-DPS Druids, although of course, your mileage may vary.
  9. And that concludes the event! Despite no groups actually getting kills, I would cautiously call this a pretty great success. A lot of people got to see the raid for the first time, or practice roles and classes they weren't familiar with. There was significant, constant improvement from everyone I was grouped with, and going by feedback from the other group leaders, it seemed like this was the case for everyone. There were several tries that got to last phase and/or survived until hard enrage, which is quite an achievement for raids comprised almost entirely of beginners. So - thank you for everyone who joined! I hope you learned a lot, had fun, and got to see for yourself if raids is something worth getting into or not. Hopefully, now that more people have seen it, we will have more people interested in joining or making their own raid groups. Remember, practice makes perfect! As a side note, I also hope that these runs demonstrated why "meta" builds, who often were disregarded as "elitist" or such before, are actually very nice tools to enable you to complete raids that require a lot of personal and group-wide performance. Fortunately, a lot of the most "meta" builds are also really fun to play! \o/ As for the future, I know that next week is a no-go for me, so we'll have to see what the future brings. While I cannot guarantee anything on my schedule, I will keep you updated if I can free up enough time to organize a second event. tl;dr: Thanks for coming. Proud of y'all.
  10. As for other events, the current answer is that "We would like that, but we're not sure if we can make the time currently." Stay tuned.
  11. Erk, didn't spot that in your post. My bad. Show up on TS today too, though, if someone doesn't show we'll make it a priority to get you in.
  12. Hide and seek

    Haha, that one is indeed rather easy, if nice. I won't take the glory away (and I don't have any great places to hide anyways... that aren't impossible to find, at least!), but I'll give the hint that those who do the Guild Treks regularly may know where this is
  13. It would be lovely if you could show in the TeamSpeak tomorrow, then, and we'll sort out who's there and who can do what.
  14. Thank you for coming and making the stuff awesome! I don't know if we will be able to repeat the event - I, too, hope that we can - but it will depend on my future schedule, as well as that of others. Stay tuned, I guess. On that note, there's still tomorrow's raids, and one of our PS Warriors had to back out. That means we would very much want one volunteer who can play PS Warrior for the raids starting tomorrow (Sunday) at 12:00 CET! It would be greatly appreciated.
  15. An update: It was pointed out to me that I had forgotten to include Eis Lue Mirage in the schedule. I was able to re-arrange it so that they're in Raid 1 today (Saturday). Apologies to Dausen; you were originally scheduled to run Condi Warrior on both days, but I had to move you to Sunday only. I hope I can be forgiven. If anyone finds any other mess-ups, don't be shy, tell me and I'll do my best.
