  1. Thanks for this @RaVem! If this ever takes off, count me in. I will read online about support builds. I'm traveling now and in a different time zone, so it's hard for me to join people anyway, but I'll be home in a week or so.
  2. My main is a chronomancer (mesmer), but I'd actually enjoy improving my skills with a different class. I'd love to play a support/heals role for example, but I'm not sure where to begin (water ele, druid?). Anyway, I have 80 toons in every class, so I can play whatever the guild needs of me.
  3. Thanks for this discussion! I have nothing to add to the content here. But I am the type of guild member who has done the zerg thing to death and now faces a choice of either boredom (and quitting WvW) vs. improving myself (and continuing in WvW). In short, if an initiative like this is to be sustainable within the guild, I think it will need people like me as its "soldiers." I thought I'd share some constructive thoughts about that. I read this thread because I want something like this. But there are a couple of hurdles. One is that people like me will have to learn our roles and learn to execute--that can be difficult and can take time. The other is psychological: it is intimidating to learn something new and to have others depend on you, etc. Maybe it's easier, some will think, to work on an achievement, a legendary, whatever. I am sometimes guilty of this. But I want to relate a story. Back in Wrath of the Lich King, my WoW guild needed a healer and my main was a shammy. I was dealing below average DPS and not contributing much to our heroics, but we were a social guild so it was no problem. But I knew I wasn't contributing much and it wasn't a great feeling. A guild leader took me aside one evening in Dalaran and asked if I'd be willing to switch to heals. That night, he taught me how to be a Resto shammy. We then ran some 5-man instances until I got the hang of it. I did my part by reading online how to spec, rotations, boss mechanics--I never did any original theorycrafting, but I learned the job and over time adapted to metas and all that.. Over the next three years I gradually became the primary heals in our guild, and I had SO much fun. But I was never an elite player--I just learned my role and did it as best I could, gradually improving over time. It was fun for me and I also felt like I was contributing. If we could do something like that for WvW in RoH, I think you could lead many of us over the two hurdles I mentioned earlier.
  4. So one of the things that appealed to me about RoH was that it spans multiple games. Although I'm not active in it now, I used to play ESO and leveled a character into the 30s or so. I know that there's lots of RoH folks in ESO, so I thought maybe it's time to return. 

     

    A couple of days ago I decided to download the ESO client and logged in for the first time in a couple of years. Completely forgetting the UI, I promptly attacked a guard by accident and got arrested within seconds. I panic-logged and haven't been back. 

     

    All of this is to say, can I have a /givinte to ESO? (I will re-do the tutorial so I don't accidentally shoot any of you.)

     

    EDIT: My ESO username is Daphnis.

    EDIT: I copied and pasted this in the ESO forum, because I'm not sure if anyone sees public posts like this one.
