I created a guild on Guild Wars 2 on the world Devona’s Rest and it’s called Tea Drinkers Anonymous :D I invite you all to come and join :D

Nik select said

Ha ha, that’s awesome! I wish they allowed us to select the server per character instead of making it apply to all our characters, though. Transferring to Devona’s Rest would mean leaving friends on Crystal Desert and vice-versa. =\

Helena said

you can always hop the server for a bit get an invite and hop back :D then you stay in the guild but you don’t get benefits….

Nik select said

That’s an interesting idea. It’s funny that you created this guild. I was thinking of “Charr for Chai” but even though the name made me giggle, I didn’t want to limit the guild to Charr obviously. =)

Helena said

someone posted somewhere that there should be a support group for us tea drinkers and then the joke about Tea Drinker’s Anonymous. So I thought I would put it to good use. I’ll be online most consistently weekend mornings before work :D and sometimes during the week when I grab a minute :D

Helena said

Nik I’ll be online tonight if you want invite to the guild :D if your busy I’ll be online tomorrow morning before work :D

Nik select said

I’ll try to catch you in-game. =)

what doesn’t transfer?

Helena said

oh we were talking about transferring characters to different realms. Which is unecessary since I could add him to the guild while he was on his realm he just won’t get the benefits of the guild like going to the guild hall (once I get it built) and buffs from it and stuff. Still he can represent the guild on his realm and invite others to join :D

I have succumbed to Borderlands 2. My partner got the game on Wednesday and then surprised me with a steam copy Friday night. It is ADDICTIVE and I am trying my best not to ignore my homework…my best was not too great on Sunday! If anyone else has the game and is on steam, you can look me up under Ukuleleclaire.

Nik select said

Yay to succumbing! =P (I am such an enabler.) I just befriended you on Steam. I’m bleepnik there, as I am here.

We stayed up until almost 3am on Saturday night playing it. Guns, guns, more guns!

I got Nik into my guild and he didn’t even have to switch realms yaaay! We whispered to each other cross-realm (how cool is that?) I’m lvl 20 something on my Elementalist (mage) and 15 I think on my Ranger (hunter). For all those still playing WoW I strongly urge you to switch! No subscription fees and lots of fun that’s Guild Wars 2 in a nutshell :D

I really didn’t care for GW2. Lack of healing/tanking roles make PVE dull

Helena said

want to be tank I suggest Guardian or Warrior and then equip yourself that way. There is no real healing class because everyone can heal to some degree. Although my elementalist has a ton of healing abilities when I switch to water such as healing rain (AoE) and a little geyser that heals so I can be considered a healing class :D

Helena said

plus you can join the guild I created (Tea Drinkers Anonymous) and just hang out with us other steepster people :D

I usually play healing roles so there is no real viable option. I have a guardian. I kind of like it.

Helena said

ah, I’m always a priest, monk, paladin or something like that so I understand :D I’m a lousy person to play tanks though :D Healing classes are my thing which is why Water based elementalist fits. I like using staffs, or focus + scepter for my weapons :D of course different weapons different skills :D I’m also currently addicted to crafting and exploring :D there’s nothing like throwing a bunch of things into the mixer to create a new recipe :D

I thought I would post some links for other people to give it a look over. So they can know what I’m talking about from unbiased sources (we know I love the game)

I’m having a lot of fun with the Halloween events :D I like going to the Mad King’s Realm and getting boosted up to level 80 and wandering the maze. It’s a good way to level quickly and get some good gear :D

Nik select said

Oh man, I’ve not really spent time with GW2 since launch. I’d love to check out their Halloween events, thanks for the reminder!

Helena said

the Mad King’s Realm Labryinth is a great way to farm exp and karma points :D My inventory keeps filling up (12slot bags) The guild is also currently building it’s guild vault so that will be available very soon :D

Nik select said

Woo! =)
