Your Beloved Collections

  • Seraph!


    I’ve been waiting for you to make an appearance. Welcome back! I’ve been stalking your profile since 2009 on guru.


    Looking forward to meeting you and seeing some of that awesome stuff ingame some time 👍🏻

  • Serb,


    It was quite the pleasant surprise to see you pop up on my FL the other night. I'm also thrilled you came thru with some screens to help us preserve the history of the game and one of its greats.


    Seeing such items is a great pleasure, even if we don't know the whereabouts of all of them (I believe I have a couple, would have to check gold values, fingerprints, examine with a black light, etc). Given the beauty of these items, DNA is likely easily recoverable from their surfaces for positive ID:|.


    Most of all I hope to see you in game from time to time to help class up the joint.

  • Anyone else love items like these with funny numbers ?


    Thank you Maria alot for the new earth staff! I love it ! It was so hard find those damn mods tho as allways with items like this! there really should be better way finding non max mods ;) But q8 18/8/8 1/18 is just epic ;) just like that 10 10-19 q10 19/19 10 1/19 Dead skin fire staff ;)

  • So for those of you who've gotten name changes and we're always bummed out that your weapons didn't show your latest character name, but instead the original? Got to love the new update :D. Here's a blast from the past. One of my first sets and still one of my best. NOW WITH MY ACTUAL NAME :D.

    Before I always changed it to this name via paint ;).

  • So as I gaze upon all these lovely collections I thought I might throw mine into the mix. It started out as a little fun project to see if I could.... then it became a challenge..... then there was a several year brake from the game with the challenge still stirring in my head. I started playing again and now this collection has become an OBSESSION :) :evil:

    My thought was to collect EVERY GREEN (unique) item in the GW game ... Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall, Eye of the North, War in Kryta and then the Zaishen Strongboxes

    This has been Challenging to say the least because if you look at the unique list on wiki its extreme large.

    To date I have collected a total of 581 Green Items. 8| yes 581

    with only 163 left to go.||

    I'm sorry I don't have pic of the list.... but I don't think I can bring myself to taking 500+ screen shots lol


    Mr S L A V E


    Just want to that EVERONE that been adding to my green collection !! its been AWESOME !!!!!

  • Impressive. Most impressive.

    Collecting items is all about the challenge. And you’ve set yourself a big one! Good luck with the journey 👍🏻

  • Mr S L A V E I have one of the (if not the) most obsessively-complete collections in GW and I applaud your efforts as well as PyroLobster (who is undertaking a similar endeavor). The scope of your plan is immense but I am sure with enough patience (and storage space) it will be done.


    A couple of people have asked me to post the Earth Ele items I have accumulated over the years. I would never say I collect Earth stuff or even call this a side-project of any kind. Apologies if this doesn't measure up but I think you will find some cute things here. I enjoy them and I hope you will, too.


    There are bigger, better actual ele collections (Hi, Expugnare ) out there and I, for one, would love to see that stuff posted here. After all, as my friend Woo points out, what's a staff but a hammer that's missing the big chunky bit at the end??

    Edited once, last by Kabong: Fixed pic?? ().

  • It’s about time you showed some sticks.


    Afterthought: keep in mind that these were assembled long before the cheaty botters began to farm them.

  • Thanks, Max, for pointing that out. I can't tell you how many years it's been since I bought an earth staff. It's an old pile of sticks and some have been devalued the cheaters.


    The history of the game is carried in its items. This thread and this forum as a whole help us document, preserve and protect that, even if it makes us look old and senile sometimes. Small price to pay. I can take it.

  • Can’t say I’m not completely floored to have my modest collection even be mentioned in a post by my good friend Kabong.


    This game is a labor of love and it shows in your goods. Thanks for the shoutout. Means a lot because you and Kromp were some of the folks who most inspired me when I got into collecting. And I of course have not and will never forget your additions to both my caster and hammer collection.


    I haven’t had much time to screenshot and post but this is getting me hyped to do so soon.


    And fantastic posts everyone. Keep it up :)

  • It's finally happened. Here they are! <3

  • All the best collections have a theme. Particular mods, a certain skin, from one campaign, pre-nerf etc.


    This collection of far-eastern themed items is beginning to look quite impressive. Excellent work in such a short time, Pequeno.

  • Jade Sword and Green Reinforced Buckler scream China rather than Japan (as does most of Factions). But still, gorgeous effort. And I certainly agree with Max on themes being critical to collection.


    You know usually I like custo’d items, but not in this case. Here they all just look so clean, like they’re in a museum.


    Great job.

  • Thank you very much Max and Yuko!


    The first objective of the collection was to gather Samurai Swords like Katana, Shinobi, Broadsword! Because I always loved the Japanese culture and thin blades ahah.

    I obtained most of those in Q9 with the mods 15^50 and +5e this month also, but still none in Q8!

    Since I also love Jade Weapons (and yes, it's probably a more Chinese side of the overall Asian collection) I decided to focus on those this month!

  • "This month" 😆


    What you have accomplished to this point is much more than a month's work for most.


    I applaud your efficiency and skill in doing so much so quickly but admire most of all the manner in which you have done it.


    Congratulations, my friend! I can't (and probably won't have to) wait for more updates!
