MMOs like to slip in seasonal events, and Guild Wars puts on such a celebration for Halloween. I decided to stand a character in Lion’s Arch and Kamadan for this year’s event in order to collect some goodies (you can be AFK and still collect items!).
Earlier I mentioned I played Guild Wars obsessively until the summer of 2007. What happened that July was I tried out Lord of the Rings Onlines (LoTRO) and soon was spending all my time there. I’m a fan of Tolkien’s world (books and movies), so it is no wonder LoTRO grew on me.
Since I have no builds for my characters or heroes, other than what they have currently loaded, my plan for tonight was to play a bit, make a few builds, and head out to do something, anything.
I mentioned I had something to attend to, before working towards 30 points for my Hall of Monuments. That something is: recreate my templates (saved builds).
I upgraded to a new computer a few months ago, and forgot to copy the templates to my new machine. My old computer is long gone and so are my old saved builds. Each character and hero has the single build they last loaded, but that’s it.
I played Guild Wars heavily from November 2005 to roughly November 2007. I still dabble here and there, but my playtime took a major nosedive, due to another game I took up, to be detailed in a future post.
I’ve played through Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall on multiple characters, and completed EoTN on two (I believe), but my playtime tailed off shortly afterwards. I completed the bonus missions, did a few Zaishen quests (to get the extra storage bag), but never did visit all the EoTN dungeons and honestly kinda lost track of the game recently. For instance, I didn’t realize some new content in the form of War in Kryta came out… months ago!
I enjoy reading MMO blogs and thought it would be fun to have my own.
I’ve played several MMO’s, and dabbled in a few others, and had to take a break for a while (real life stuff like moving, starting a new job, and settling into a new area). Now I plan to play again, not as much as I used to, and write about various in-game adventures.
In the next few posts I’ll summarize my experiences in a particular game, what I plan to do in the immediate future, and go from there! I’ll also try to make a better background image to use, but no rush there.
Welcome and enjoy!
