Comment from Braxwolf on GWPN #3:

“It’s really great to hear a new player perspective *as* a new player to GW2.

One thing that’s exceedingly difficult to do as a longtime player/podcaster is to convey basic information (over and over again) so that it’s understandable and not overwhelming to the newbie. It’s easy to fall into the trap of assuming that everybody is at the same level that you are, and has had similar in-game experiences. As a veteran player/podcaster for a different game and also a newbie to GW2, I’ve seen both sides of this coin. The ideal situation seems to be to find a podcast that is discovering the game at the same time as, or slightly ahead of, you. Lucky for me, I’ve found that sweet spot with this podcast. Keep up the great work, my friends!”

“Greetings Podcaster Cithryth,

Here are some viles of um… DYE? Yup, dye, definitely not industrial waste from my lab. Definitely dyes. You like all the pretty colors and a splash of this will definitely make your materials… colored.

This gift is provided by the Arcane Council.

Well that should take care of my community service for that ‘misshap’ now back to… Are you still recording? Stop dictation you obsolete construct I should dismantle you…”

  1. #necroplayers Your best friends when the zombie apocalypse happens.

    On a slightly less serious note, I am totally available to help with Guild Wars, in or out of game, even if you called my characters abominations (though charges may apply in that case). Anyone can leave a comment on one of the things I’ve written, add Toiben Firehammer as a friend in Guild Wars*, or if you want to try to catch me during one of my biweekly 10-minute sessions of GW2, add Tapkoh.4061.

    Looking back, Guild Wars is not easy to digest when you’re used to the conventions of today. I’m giving my 2nd best effort to make it easier though.

    *All friends are account friends by default in GW and that’s the easiest character name I have to spell/remember right now. You’re welcome.
