Introductions Thread!

  • Hi, I'm Lyn (irl too).


    I've been playing GW since Factions hit the Market.
    The whole family had characters on one account, but we couldn't get much accomplished alone,

    So we wound up buying extra accounts so that we could all play together.


    In the past 12 years I've pretty much done it all except for pvp, but it never gets old.

    I still find it fun, and spend my time between pre and post, playing and farming.

    My kids don't play as much anymore, but we do still get together when they have time.


    I'm glad to see that 2 developers are doing updates, and that the game is being cared for.

    I also appreciate forums like this that allow fans to come together and share views and ideas.

    Thanks for the opportunities!

  • Hi guys,


    I've just got back into GW after rather a long break. Is anyone still out there and playing? Needless to say all my old friends no longer play so I'm looking for a guild to join and some peeps to mess about with. I used to do all the speed clears back in the day.

    Welcome back! Plenty of people still enjoying GW1. Check out the guild recruitment forum here for currently active guilds. My personal recommendation: [LGiT] Legit Guild/Alliance [ LGiT]

  • Hello everyone,


    A new player here. Unlike most of you here on the forum, I have never played the original Guild Wars (only Guild Wars 2) and so far I'm enjoying it :) My wish is to "finish" the game through all the campaigns, work on titles and hopefully make a GWAMM in the long run. I'm currently playin' through the Prophecies campaign with my E/Me. If there's a guild that recruits new players and is willing to help, please let me know ;) Feel free to contact me in game.

  • Hey guys!


    Returning oldbie back from the Prophecies days! Been so many years since I've played, I wouldn't even know where to start, but I can distinctly remember farming and selling mats at Droks about a million years ago with my old clan. Just sitting back and drinking beers at my buddies place and farm farm farming!


    Anyway, glad to.finally be back. Maybe I'll actually play through Factions and Nightfall this time around! XD

  • OMG, I remember when Droks's was one of the trade outposts! I'd totally forgotten, wow!

    Thanks for that sweet bit of nostalgia and Welcome Back!

    Neither campaign is as lengthy as Prophecies was, so they'll play through much quicker.

    Factions bonuses are mostly the mission itself timed, with the exception of a few...

    and NF bonuses are incorporated so as not to take you far off path to complete.


    You should get together with Rainwise above, you both may have a common goal. ;)

    But seriously, if I'm on when you get to Factions and you want company...hail me.

    My Favorites are still The Temple & Nahpui Quarter!

  • Hey guys, Ross here (IGN Ishi Yoichi)


    just come getting back into gw after a leaving the game just before the GW2 release. The nostalgia is real and im just wanting to get back into the game and involved with the community.


    Peace!

  • As long as I have been here, I haven't written in this area... I have been in many many guilds... Even ran S T Academy [Trek], which I started and with the guild's help - had gotten full guild hall. It's been sold to several and it still exists, but inactive 100%.

    I have an account (along with an account of husband's) in gwam ally - if you want an invite, you can do many ways, which I will leave contacts at the bottom...

    My main account (along with another account of husband's) runs Here Online Playing Eternally [Hope] . I have an advertisement here for it and on guild wars global. I am unsure how to do reddit to have it go well, instead of aweful. It's in [WuB] ally that I absolutely enjoy!

    I still hope to get to teaching routes, if not roles.
    I started back on Sept. 26,2007... I have had several breaks and several events.... As well as account wipes of characters that had a complete restart, but things happen. I love having good friends, both outside of game on fb, discord, etc. and inside the game. I'm as honest as I can be and I'm me. Married with two kids - So, not looking for anything more. :-)

    My in game name - if you want to join either guild - send me a pm on here, or fb - if you know who I am, or on discord on Alumina, or in game - if you may know who I am.

    Blessings to ya!

    Enjoy the game, as we might just have the hope to be able to play as long as we can, especially if it's for Eternity. ;-)

  • Greetings,

    my (real) name is Marek, I'm from Germany. I have been playing GW since about 2006, I think, and I stopped by the release of GW2. I was really into the game, the story, the lore... just all of it! I even wrote a fan fiction while on a class trip back in middle school - by hand, on a spiral-bound notepad! Too bad I cannot find it anywhere...

    So, yea, I switched to GW2 when they released it, but it never really thrilled me that much. I stopped playing for a while.

    But then, sometime earlier this year, I stumbled upon another fan fiction (yes, I wrote a lot back in the days) - more a draft, really - in my Google Drive and I suddenly felt the urgent need to play the original game once more. I created a new, second account (Prophecies only, for now) and started playing. Man, those memories!

    I had a character back then that was supposed to never ever leave the pre-searing Ascalon. Made some good ingame friends there, had a really good time. The character, however, left the tutorial at some point and was my main character then (Vadda Orca, a Necromancer). Hell, I even had my first "girlfriend" ingame! And by that, I mean like a small, skinny Assassin approaching: "oh, hey, you're a good-looking Necromancer, wanna be my boyfriend?", and I was like "yea, sure!", but that was about everything I had to say. We broke up about 12 minutes later. It's not that my success with the girls has dramatically changed in any way by now, so ^^

    Oh right, the reason why I'm here after all: Like I said, I bought a second account and started from scratch. But after a while playing exclusively with henchmen, strolling from one godforsaken outpost (is it the German districts?) to another, I lost interest again pretty fast. But when I read about the update brought to us by two ANet employees, sacrificing their spare time, my hope to find some real people inside the game world was rekindled. My problem is: I'm a shiftworker, and I'm not always at home, so I'll have some very irregular online times. But according to the recent activity here on the forum, I guess I will find quite an amount of players ingame - maybe the squad on the next outpost, preparing a quest, waiting for just one more player (me?) to participate :)

    Dang, I didn't expect to write that much, hope I didn't bore you too much. Have a cookie as an excuse! :cookie:

    May your doom be other than mine, and your treasure remain with you to the end.

  • There are always players on in the American Districts 24/7...you're sure to find many people to talk to.

    I see a lot of foreign languages spoken in Kamadan as well, from Spanish & French to Deutsch and Russian.

    Just yesterday I saw 2 players in Presearing Ascalon conversing in Deutsch,

    so you'll have plenty of company wherever you go.

    Say hi in English, or shout out in your native tongue, either way you'll get a reply!

    Welcome Back to the Game!

  • Hey!


    I've played since the release of GW1! Been a hardcore player mainly on PvE and did PvP when I get the chance to. I've lost interest in the game when GW2 was about to be released. All friends had moved on to something else or played another game. I have not seen anyone on my friend's list since 2010. That was the year I've completely dropped the game and moved on to something else. Played many many games on different platforms but nothing compares to GW1's nostalgic memories. If I hear anyone talking about GW1, it's someone rare and from my era, I will non-stop talking about the game. Recently I tried to look for something related to the game and found nothing. I remembered a site I used to visit frequently. I googled, "GuildWarsGuru" and found out it has been closed down for years. There was a subreddit about guild wars guru and read through the comments and had found this page. This is a start in getting back into the game. Glad to have found you guys! Let it begin! :D

    May I please have a guild invite?

  • there are tons of people the american districts...even pre-searing, and if you work off -hours in europe, you will be playing when all the americans (north, south, central) are on! So move over to american districts and find a guild ...and welcome to Legacy!


    thank you both for the suggestions and the warm welcome! I'll definitely check out the American districts next time.

    Looking forward to getting into the game again! :)

    Should I start looking for a guild ingame or are there guilds around the forum recruiting "kind of veterans" with weird online times?

  • Hi, it's nice to meet you all! I'm Morihalda, I love tabletop and video games, creating characters and art, camping and fishing, all that fun stuff. :)


    I haven't played GW1 since before GW2 launch. I logged in briefly earlier this year to look at my old characters and was 100% lost. I met a few awesome Legit players that day, I need to rejoin! I've played a silly amount of GW2 since it came out and I want to give GW1 another chance.


    I'm really excited to go through the whole lore/storylines! So I'll be playing on my new characters, Mori Jihn (R/E, mistral ranger) and Kiara Jihn (N/Mo, gray witch). Can't get lost if you start at the beginning! :D Kind of. Not as lost. Y'all are welcome to join me along the way!


    I'll probably be on Mori the most, since I'm playing through the story on Kiara with my husband if he ever logs back in. That being said, I'll be playing through in chronological order, not fastest way to HOM order. So when I get a bit farther, I have a bunch of old birthday stuff I'd love to trade later for friendship and HOM stuff. :D
