Roaming is Hard

Roaming is Hard

May 5, 2015

Generally, it’s just Lillica and Charchar. Alone and unafraid. Not on purpose, of course, but it’s so hard to find people who have builds that work well with a back-stab thief and runaway warrior other than other back-stab thief and a runaway warriors. The two of us; flipping camps, picking off the tail ends of zergs, and scouting. Oh, how I love...

Glass Cannon

Glass Cannon

Knock those arrows, Loose those stowed. Shoot so fast it seems time’s slowed. Smashing “2” Like a fool Can’t beat this in a PEW PEW duel. Castle walls, high and thick Protect me from all but the magnet trick; Too bad I drop fast as glass that’s cooled too fast.

Core Specializations Explained (HoT)

Core Specializations Explained (HoT)

Apr 26, 2015

I could write three paragraphs of things you already know, or I could provide this link to Dulfy’s write up summary of the Specializations live stream. Every trait change explained. My guess is HoT drops in 9 weeks because 1 specialization will be explained every week. In summary, everything is getting buffed. Like, holy poop, these are buffs never before...

Reflections on Stronghold

Reflections on Stronghold

Apr 15, 2015

Good afternoon, friendships:. Last night, I played the stronghold beta and since none of the other writers have tackled it, yet, I will do my best to ramble on about my recent roams. #alliterationFTM Thought the feeling is unoriginal, I feel I can compare it to League of Legends or Smite. There is an attacking lane and a defending lane (two lanes total for two...

Floods and Flowers

Floods and Flowers

Mar 13, 2015

When I was a young lady in the last stronghold of humanity I was told that the city walls would always protect us, as they had for all of human memory, Yet, I found that safety was no way to live when, one night, I saw a great beast in a circus tent. Though he was well fed and loved, I heard him cry out for more than contentment. From his youth forward, he...

Getting Into PvP: Part 1

Getting Into PvP: Part 1

Mar 10, 2015

My problem with PvE is the same that General Zaroff had with hunting animals; oh, and if you caught that literary reference, then you can be my friend. Moving on with the topic at hand, but not with turn-of-the-century trivia, “Instinct is no match for reason.” That, friends, is to say that PvE, within the confines of current technology, cannot...

How to Make #PhatStacks in the Crafting Corner

Mar 4, 2015

Good afternoon, no-lifes, try-hards, and those who would call themselves l33t. If you have decided to read my article, then you likely have never crafted, visited gw2spidy.com, or you may simply have no friends on Earth or in Tyria- how upsetting. Regardless, I get my dopamine from hearing my name and article get dropped on one of my favorite podcasts;...

Lillica showed me this playlist and I thought it was pretty great.

The Ranger: It’s Like Ash Ketchum and Aragorn Had a Baby

Feb 17, 2015

Maybe it’s my play-style, maybe it’s that I know that Mew and Mew-Two need their sequence in the Pokedex reversed, or maybe I’m incapable of handling the kit changes that engineers and elementalists must be able to do, but rangers are super-cool and were underrated until pretty recently due to some buffs. Longbows and the 2k Club Next to...

Saving Gold = Losing Gold

Saving Gold = Losing Gold

Jan 30, 2015

Dearest no-lives, If you are hoarding gold and thinking it is a goof idea, I want you to take a look at this graph from gw2spidy.com: This is inflation. The Game Theorists do a great explanation on how inflation works in MMORPGs so I’ll give everyone a minute to watch it. (Saves me a lot of time writing which is good because I’m on a lunch break...

Don’t Get Stomped; Get Meta!

Don’t Get Stomped; Get Meta!

Jan 29, 2015

Hey nerds, It is Thursday and I’m busy being OP. #meta #nerfit #buffitscounter I remember the first time I played PvP…or WvW…even dungeons and thinking, “well, I know I’m as green as Fluttershy in episode 20 of season 2, but I’m not THIS bad.” After asking around map chat, it occurred to me that the problem was not my...
