Guild Wars 2 – Wayrift [WAY]

I’ve taken quite a few screenshots since I started playing Guild Wars 2, but realized that I hadn’t posted any since joining the Wayrift [WAY] guild. Here are some pics of new friends, as well as longtime pals.

Crummy, Gavin, & Tsuya

Although I don’t have screenshots of everyone, many of the guild mates I see most often are depicted here.  The characters that appear are:  Tsuya Tai, Zeb Ya, Hannover Phist, Ling Si, Jadyn, Karma Tornado, Komrade Markovski, Hermad, Raven Kihaku, Chiang Shi, Ji Whitehawk, Jo Cur, Haverhill, and Gavin Whitehawk.

edit: Posted more guild screenshots here:  “More Wayrift [WAY] Guildies” (added 2/15/13).

Wintersday

I love this time of the year.  Sure, the weather gets downright icy, and shopping is hectic…  But there are lights, bells, cheerful music, and a festive spirit all around.

Ji Whitehawk gets in the Wintersday spirit.

Even Guild Wars characters get to join in on the fun!  A tradition since 2005, the Wintersday Festival features redecorated towns, special holiday quests, and holiday-themed drops.

Just some of the goodies to be had during the Wintersday Festival

Is PvP your thing?  Try out the Snowball Arena!  Stuffing snow down someone’s shirt has never been more fun.  Get Gifts and Gamer Points for participating.

And last but not least:  Relax and enjoy some time with your friends and family.  The holiday season is about appreciating the people we have in our lives.  May the Spirit of Christmas be with you…!

Below are some Wintersday snapshots.  The characters that appear are:  Ling Si, Everett Thrice, Silvara Thrice, Ji Whitehawk, and Gavin Whitehawk.

Guild Wars Doubles

Inevitably, during your adventures, you’ll run into someone with the same hairstyle or face.  Other times the similarity is in armor design or coloration.  And once in a great while, you may see someone who has several things in common with you.  Ever run through an outpost, and notice someone that could pass as your sibling or twin?

Looks like Suzaku Bosatsu and mystery girl had the same idea when they put together their mixed armor.

Amongst the hundreds of screenshots I’ve taken, I have only a few Double Sightings.  The characters that appear are: Suzaku Bosatsu, Underpaid Assasin, Gavin Whitehawk, Ling Si, Bwa Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha, Silvara Thrice, and other unknown players.

Old Alliance Pals

A few years back, ‘The Martial Way [Art]’ guild was part of the ‘Fameless and Rankless [FaR]’ alliance.  During that period, we had a lot of fun together, helping each other on various missions and farming runs.  One of the greatest benefits of the alliance, aside from the camaraderie, was being able to venture into places that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to enter.  Some of my more vivid memories include forays into elite dungeons and different PvP arenas.  Although the alliance dissolved after a couple of years, my thoughts of the people I met remain fond.
