It all started by looking at a lovely skin called Kudzu and wondering how I get it.....

 

2020

A Lan session is booked for sometime in Feb, and we have been focusing on slowly building our own raiding group, which we hope to put to good use during this session. More details once I write them all up obviously.

This years goals and achivements so far.

 

2019

2019 started with a LAN session already booked with Monkey, Prince Adam, Sitstil and I attending. It happened in Feb and the details are here, quite extensive notes this time round for a change.

In June, we held another LAN session, details here, posted pretty promptly for once, lacking in detail compared to Feb's event though.

Oh, I knew I could never keep up with the huge amount of detail that I once added to these webpages, and so this time I have added a list of stuff that I am up to here, which shows what I am currently doing, or want to do, or have done, hopefully its something I sustain for my lifetime of the game.

Game wise: Living World Season 5, or the Icebrood Saga started.

 

2018

For 2018 I again took the summerization route, and did try to continue writing, but it was still too much, I never kept it up, and lastly, I didnt like the synopsis/bullpoint type writing of it either, so never published any of them.

There was an epic lan session though in Feb, which got the write up it deserved. I will probably do that moving forward to be fair, adding any LAN sessions.

There was another LAN session (Monkey, Adam, Sitstil and I) in July 2018 that I am missing as I sadly cant find the notes for it and the few videos I recorded where all highly entertaining.....had they any sound, meaning they were deleted.

There was another in late October of 2018 (Adam, Sitstil, Lom Ono) that I did not attend, and was barely on during the time the others played, so I can ignore that....just kidding, I was obviously broken up about them playing with out me, but I have nothing to add for it unless they have anything to pass on.

 

2017

I think Feb 2017 was my last chapter published (on checking, it was actually April 2017), and while I still play, I didnt have the time to write to the same level of detail I once was. A shame, as I never remembered half the stuff I did until I read it again, and I also find myself quite funny....well, someone has to.

May 2017's session was a pile of notes with no screenshots, and sadly, a LAN session also played in May has nothing written down - I should have some scribbled notes somewhere surely, and if I find them, I will add them, but as a huge amount of time has already past, its not likely it will get done. I do remember it being Myself, Prince, Monkey and Sitstil, and that we thought we would just get them (Monkey and Sitstill) through the end bit of the story to get gliding for them......which actually took more than 4 hours of sitting silently listening to their story.

From June 2017 onwards I started to consolidate the diary's down to footnotes rather than detailed descriptions. The idea was that I was recording more and screenshotting less, but never enough of either. I know that I created both Incinerator and Frenzy Legendaries while waiting for Path of Fire to be released, and so far none of new legendaries arriving with each Living Story episode were to my liking.

Gamewise: Living World Season 4 started. The Expansion Path of Fire was released.

 

2015-2016

These tales of mine went on for a long time - far longer than I had anticipated as well, mostly due to Pelet playing more and dragging me back in when my playtime was wavering, and then again as more people joined. A couple of LAN Sessions played during this time where Feb 2015 and June 2016.

Gamewise: The Expansion Heart of Thorns was released in 2015, and the Living World Season 3 was released in 2016

 

2014

A poor pun to start so you know exactly the tone...so lets get straight into the backstory - I bought Guild Wars 2 in early september 2014 to play at a LAN session (back in October 2014.) Our instructions prior to that were that we could play as many characters as we wanted to find out which one we liked, but only to 15th level. At that LAN session we went from 15th to 45th level. After that, we all were 'allowed' to play our main characters until around 62nd ready for the next LAN session that will happen in a few months (likely in Feb next year).

With all that in place, this meant I ended up leveling 4 alts that were roughly mid 20-30th level. Why is this important? Well I stupidly had set my eyes on a longbow skin (this game is all about the looks, it doesn't have the nickname 'Fashion Wars 2' for nothing), one that looks really smart and something that I wanted from seeing the skin in the first few days of playing the game without actually realising what was required.

The longbow skin in question was actually the Longbow Legendary, Kudzu.

So here is the start of my tales, a fully detailed description of my playtime during the month of December 2014. One last thing to note is that these tales are written as I go along, so all the following about Clovers and T6 materials is well before the daily login rewards (early 2015?)

Other Info

Other than that, I do occasionally record stuff; a few low level Fractals, the odd Dungeon and normally the Personal story that comes from Expansions or Living Story Episodes on my Youtube channel, so if these tales were interesting, then you can see and hear more here. To summerize, the 25ish published full chapters and various notes and LAN session recounts and videos contain thousands of hours of my game time, but reading and watching an idiot do something is not as much fun as doing it yourself, so get over to Guildwars2.com and download a copy.
