I was looking through some very old screenshots today and found myself smiling more and more as I reminisced about the friends & fond memories that GW had brought me. Guildwars always was more than “just a game” to me, & some of the people I met in game along the way have become great friends of mine IRL.
I wanted to share some of the memories with you guys so here are some of the pics I stumbled across, and the stories to go with them. They are all from 2012.
Brave Kubana ~ My hero & the giver of gifts.
I have told the story before of how he donated five of his Q8 Magma shields to me & forever changed my GW life by doing so(+60w/hex/-5/20, +45we/-5/20, +30/+1Inspiration, +28/-5/20, and +53/-3w/hex), but he also helped another old friend of mine out with this deal…
Kabong ~ My first meeting with the King of Hammers
I remember standing in Kamadan one day seeing some rando spamming, WTS SWAMP CLUB, so I asked if I could see it. He showed it to me, and then kept adding more……. here is how it played out. I have blacked out the screenshot locations on my HDD to make the conversation easier to read.
Hatamoto Chi ~ Nice guy of PhD
Another moment was when I got serious about assembling the full dual reduction Magmas set & Hatamoto allowed me to purchase his dual reductions. I was so thankful that he let me make the purchase & he was a real nice bloke for who I have a lot of respect.
The one that got away….
I don’t have many regrets in Guildwars but one of them was letting this beauty slip away as I did not realise at the time how elusive it would become. I never saw one again, although im sure Plekki will probably tell me they are/were common as dog shit. xD
Well, thanks for your time & feel free to share your favourite Guildwars stories.
