29 September 2018 16:00Join us on another adventure into new, unexplored lands! What threats and treasures lie in the Jahai Bluffs?
With the recent Living World update came another brand new map - Jahai Bluffs! As is tradition, we'll be getting to know it in a one-time unique event - the Expedition to Jahai Bluffs!
The Expedition to Jahai Bluffs is a one-time event, a kind of exploratory foray into the brand new map and its content. It's a shared adventure framed as an exploratory mission, and the event is suitable for players who have already explored the map on their own, as well as those who have never visited it before!
We'll start at the first waypoint in the region, then proceed through the area, seeing what needs to be done on the way! We'll be doing any events we come across, hunting bounties, visiting locations of note, helping players get to difficult-to-reach places, pointing out interesting tidbits and possibly even getting some achievements!
Path of Fire Basic Mounts (Raptor, Springer and Skimmer) Jahai Bluffs map reached (first waypoint unlocked) Getting There:
Complete the Story mission A Shattered Nation from Living World Season 4, episode 4: A Star to Guide Us. Using Jahai Bluffs Portal Scroll or Spearmarshal's Plea to Sun's Refuge after unlocking it on one character. Using Teleport to Friend on a party member in the zone, if the Living World episode has been unlocked. Note that this is not intended to be a 100% exploration run or a farm grind, but rather a relaxed foray into the map. It's a great way to get an impression of a map, and make some fun memories while doing it! As part of the run, we will show players around some important locations in the area, complete events, and point out some fun or interesting areas and achievements. We're also inviting any mesmers with full access to all mounts to help us help players get to difficult locations!
NOTE: Story spoilers will be kept to a minimum, but some elements of the story may be spoiled by the NPCs on the map or the environment itself!

30 September 2018 16:00Ever wanted to learn more about the different teams, what they do, what the responsibilities of those teams are, as well as other ways to get involved and help the community? Well, this is the event for you!
What's this? Commander School? Aren't we dealing with enough school already? Grrr!
A lot of folks have recently expressed the desire to join the ranks of commanders, and since it's back to school season, we figured we'd name this event appropriately. Don't be turned off by the event's name, though, it's going to be a lot more informative than most school lessons I've been to! 😛
So what is this event?
Commander School is a get-together on Teamspeak for anyone interested in being a commander, as well as for those interested in helping out the community in other ways. In addition to the Event Team, Raid Team, and the TT Team, we have a whole bunch of other aspects of the community that don't often get mentioned, that we want to give our members the chance to get involved with!
The event will feature two parts - a brief overview of the different teams & roles in the community, and a Q&A section where we answer any questions people may have about specific roles and tasks in the community. Whether you want to know what's expected of someone on the TT Team, why the Event Team is't doing X or Y event, or if you can help out with something we don't seem to have a role for, everyone's invited to join in the conversation!
After the event, if you're interested in joining any of these teams or helping out with any of the roles, you can proceed straight into the sign-up interview, where we can get you all set up in the team of your choice!
So whether you're interested in being a commander, or just interested to hear more about how things work here at OC, you're invited to join us on (in?) Commander School!

22 September 2018 23 September 2018In support of the Pink Day in LA charity fundraiser, the Triple Trouble Team will be undertaking the challenge of running 24 hours of Triple Trouble!
The event kicks off from our regularly scheduled TT on Saturday the 22nd at 21:30 CEST, to the regularly scheduled TT on Sunday the 23rd! - and we'll be doing our best to throw ourselves at any and every wurm that spawns during this time! That's seven Triple Trouble events altogether, which is a pretty tall order, so we'd love for as many people as possible to join us for the attempt, particularly for the late night Wurms if you can!
Between the events, we'll have a lot of time to do a lot of really fun things, like Hide & Seek, Quaggan Hunt, and tons of other events, so there'll always be something happening! So don't miss out, and come join us!
Of course, all this is done to benefit the Pink Day in LA charity fundraiser - the fundraiser itself takes place on October 20th, and OpenCommunity is one of the official hosts, so you can join in those events right here on our Teamspeak! The event will feature a ton of fun, a ton of giveaways, from in-game items to physical, official Arenanet goodies, so come join us!
The individual Triple Trouble events will be taking place at:
Saturday, 21:30 CEST Sunday, 2:30 CEST 5:30 CEST 9:30 CEST 14:00 CEST 18:30 CEST 21:30 CEST And there'll be a whole lot of shenanigans in between, so join in any time, or stick around for the full marathon!
To join the event, don't forget to join our Teamspeak at:
ts.theopencommunity.org (or ts.gw2oc.org for short)
There is no password, you don't need a mic, and no one will require you to speak 😄 Our commanders are friendly, and they explain every step of the event before it actually starts, on each run, so even the most inexperienced players are invited to join! The more the merrier!
