We're Choosing the Day We Get Our Guild Hall -- Let Your Voice Be Heard!

Neksis / Oct 27, 2015


Cast Your Vote!

Within a week or so we will venturing out as a guild into the Auric Basin in the Heart of Maguuma to claim or guild hall. When we decide to go is going to be decided by you. We've put up a survey to ask all guild members when they would be available for the run and once the results are tallied, we will set the time and day of the event. If this event is something you might want to be a part of, then please take a few seconds to choose the dates and times you'd be free and enter them on the survey.

IMPORTANT: To be eligible for the run you must have the Guild Wars expansion, Heart of Thorns installed.

If you won't have the expansion purchased by the time we run the event, you won't be able to participate in the run but you will have access to the guild hall once it's been claimed.

About the Survey

  • The survey is located on the homepage of our website, in the upper right-hand corner, just above the Shoutbox. Or, you can find it by clicking the link here.
  • The times are posted in Central Standard Time (GMT-6) so calculate when that would be in your timezone before making your selections.
  • When making your selections, take into consideration that you might want to give yourself a little downtime (e.g. after getting home from work) or prep time before jumping into a huge event.

How to Prepare for the Event

Once we settle on a date and time, it will be posted on the calendar. It is very important that you have your local time calibrated to this website. How can you tell? There's a clock in the upper left-hand corner of the homepage; if it's showing your local time, you're all set. If not, follow the instructions here.

If you haven't already, you really should have the Teamspeak3 client installed and configured (a JUGs guide to Teamspeak can be found in the Guild Library).

IMPORTANT: When the event launches, there will be many people in the Teamspeak channel. It will be very hard for the leader of the run to rally everyone and get them organized (i.e. cat-herding) so please, be respectful and keep casual Teamspeak chatter to a minimum.

The first thing that you must accomplish in-game is the introductory story instance. You’ll need this to be done before you can enter the Verdant Brink. This is a solo-able event but if you’re having problems, don’t be afraid to ask for help.

There will be areas that you encounter during the run which will be impossible to reach without obtaining certain masteries such as Glider Basics and Bouncing Mushrooms. Everyone should have these skills by the time of the event. Another Mastery which would be very helpful is Exalted Markings to get yourself through barriers but these can also be circumvented with the help of Mesmers.

We're Here to Help

In the days leading up to the event, we'll be running scheduled forays into the Heart of Maguuma. We're going to be doing all we can to get folks their glider mastery and possibly their mushroom jumping mastery as well. This will involve running through the new area and finishing events. We will also take people around the new map and will be unlocking waypoints--especially those near the guild hall event.

This is something that this guild has waited years for and the officers and myself are scrambling to get the event to run without a hitch. If you have any questions or suggestions, please post them here so that we can address them. Until then, get ready because we're gonna go get us a guild hall!!

The capture mission starts very close to the Forgotten City waypoint in the Auric Basin zone. You can get to Auric Basin by taking the zone portal that's in the SW corner of Verdant Brink (the starting zone). Once you're in Auric Basin, work your way into the Forgotten City -- the waypoint is in the very center. As an alternative, you can use a teleport-to-friend tool just before the mission starts, but you may need several of them if you get d/c'd during the mission and don't have the waypoint.

You also want to make sure you've got TeamSpeak installed, working, and connect to the JUGs channel. This mission could have several dozen guildies in it with lots going on, and it may not be possible to communicate effectively using chat.

The tavern requires materials (planks, etc.). Has the guild accumulated these materials? If not, what is needed?

Also I am a 400 Chef and can make the kegs (if needed) as noted in the Dulfy Guide.
