  1. Gliding anywhere in GW2 is as awesome as it sounds

  2. Welp, my "never been in a car accident" streak has been broken. Rear ended on the highway. That sucked. I *think* I'm ok, and my car isn't totaled, so I guess it could be a lot worse?

      Sorry to hear that Val, but I'm glad you were not injured.

      Oh no! I think Fera's right and you should still see a doctor. If this were House, you'd have some tiny bone fracture that will start to kill you mysteriously in a few months...

      *frantically hoping I'm not secretly in an episode of House*

      I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow to schedule an appointment, or maybe just go to an Urgent Care.

  3. Woot! Exalgar/X Potion and I got "The Eternal" today. We killed every raid boss in GW2 without dying. And we did it in like...under 3 hours (not part of the title).

      Should clarify - the achievement is for no one in your party dying in any of the bosses.

      Pretty excellent =) how long had your group been working on that?

      Most of the group raids throughout the week, though for X Potion and I it was basically our second weekend of trying. It was our second Sabetha kill that was deathless, and I think 3rd or 4th for his guild overall. We then went back and did Gorseval deathless for those who needed it and got it second try. It's not too bad since the moment anyone dies you just wipe and restart, saves time.

  4. Woot! Beat the first two raid bosses in the GW2 raid! (Vale Guardian & Gorseval)

  5. Oh no. A UNIQLO opened up here finally. My first trip and I'm already down *way* more than I should. And I want more. My poor wallet :(

  6. New computer hype! Reinstalling everything - less hype!

      You just took me through a roller coaster of emotions, Val. Happy! Sad! But ultimately happy?! \o/

      I'm going to try to drag it out and do as I need, so it's less painful. Overall, though, very pleased! My memory is giving hints that it might want to be RMA'd, but I don't want to be without a machine for the holiday, and I cannibalized a hard drive out of my old machine so it would take a LOT of work to set it back up.

      The current one is running fine for now, with the odd app crash here and there. Maybe it's just moody.

      I maxed out the error count on memtest! I didn't even know that was possible!

  7. ANet addressed the pre purchase controversy. Free character slot for all veteran players, refunds for those who are unhappy. Seems fair to me.

      already uninstalled - felt like Anet just took a big dump on all of the people who supported them from the beginning.

      Sure, and that's absolutely your prerogative. I'm happy with all the free content we got and know I'll eventually want to play the expansion, so for me I'll go for it. The nice thing about a no-sub game is you could come back months later and pick it up if you want. Price will likely always be an issue, though, but if you got what you wanted from it, then all the power to ya. It's likely in that case that pretty much any price point won't both satisfy and be financiall...

      actually for $20-$30 it was a no brainer for me... but after supporting their cash shop (which I totally enjoyed), it feels like their desired target market are the people they valued the least. Now.. for people who put minimal investment into the game or people who didn't spend anything.. it's a great deal.

  8. Aether is kill :(

      I can't decipher this for the life of me.

      The Aether data center went down like clockwork today. Not for very long, but for long enough.

  9. Finally submitted a Passport application. Woo!

      Where are you going??

      everyone should have a passport... you never know when adventure will strike!

      @Midri - Japan to visit Bastion!

      @Huntyre - You are more than likely right, but there is so much adventure to be had in this massive country that I had yet to get around to it. There's still plenty of time though.

  10. Early perk of new job - we get Presidents' Day off. That's a new one for me.

  11. Rejoined the working world this week. After having my sleep schedule be 12PM-4AM for three weeks (thanks, Japan!), waking up early is positively brutal :(

      Congratulations - your body will adapt.

      the brutal will pass :)

  12. Finished my second world completion. May I never have to do that again...

      I could barely do it once.

      Leisurely Sunday drive is the way to do it. It's a gorgeous world, and that's the way to enjoy it. Luckily, they have good running builds for every class now, and optimal paths.

      Also Orr is not nearly as bad anymore, they reduced mob density and toned down the pulls/cripples/chills that used to be omnipresent while just trying to pass through.

      I don't remember much of map complete, probably because I bossed people around to take me places and port me through vistas and what not...

  13. I suddenly went from 0 MMOs to 2 with the GW2 news. Poor decision making :(

    1. Fera

      I will likely play both if I can manage it ^^

  14. I went to make my first FF14 character but Leviathan is currently not accepting new toons :(

      OOOO I are happy! Did you get a g/invite yet?

      Not yet, I've spent the first day on my own just trying to level up, get a feel for the game, and figure out if I'd like it before I wasted anyone's time on things like that. That said, I think I do. I'm Lvl 11 right now.

    4. Valcrist

      Valcrist

      Now I do! Thanks Grieve ^.^

  15. Valcrist

    Promotions!

    I'm late to the party, but congratulations Fera! Well deserved
