Our guild is continuing to build itself up from nothing in Guild Wars 2. We claimed our guild hall on Monday night in one shot. One very derpy shot in which we ran around aimlessly trying to find the spawns and then zerged into the final boss via the waypoint. Once we had finished, we admired Lost Precipice for an entire hour. It's gorgeous even in its ruined state, and I can't wait to see what upgrades will turn it into. We're almost done with the tavern upgrade 1, but now we can say we have a hall when we recruit people, which is an enormous step up.
Lost Precipice is a Petra-like forgotten ruin with a desert theme. It's gigantic and beautiful, with a lot of platforms, gliding points, and high ground. A river runs through it. Although I also like how Gilded Hollow looks, I think Lost Precipice showcases the best of GW2's art and landscape design.
We then proceeded to try out Spirit Vale with a majority guild group. Since it was a bunch of new people, we didn't get the kill, but we met some new friends, learned the fight mechanics, and are starting to feel more comfortable with everything. I'm certainly starting to feel more like a guildmaster than just a random noob with nothing to be guildmaster of and no one to coordinate.
I have three alts clustered around the same level, but I'm going to set aside my mesmer and work on raid-important alts that fill guild needs. We're a bit light on condi damage and healers. I rolled a ranger purely to heal and because we had zero rangers, but I fell in love with him (and I think you will too). I'm going to do a post later in the week showcasing the epic awesomeness that is Tango Catstaple.
Don't worry! No one knows what a catstaple is.
