Hey y'all, your friendly neighborhood Ass. here. I just wanted y'all to know that I've noticed the renewed activity in the Rift mumble channel and I think it's great. If y'all need anything from me or the council please don't hesitate!
Interrupts cause confusion so there are quite a bit of interrupts. Heal clears lots of conditions/plus condi immunity with zerker stance. Weakness and projectile reflect on mace/shield. Cripple/Immobi with GS 4.
Just something I'm playing around with to see if it is viable.
It's that time again! Time for another long overdue honor! It makes me very proud that I have the opportunity to come before you all again to celebrate one of our own!
The greatest virtues are those which are most useful to other persons.
Is hereby awarded the Guardian Service award
"This award is intended to recognize those who sacrifice a significant amount of their resources above and beyond the call of duty to help better The Guardians. A Division Leader spending time writing up rules for their Division does not qualify for this…a member of a division sacrificing their time to create and maintain a specific database useful to the division for 2 years would."
There are many ways to "Lead The Way" but those who so selflessly give of themselves for the betterment of others are, in my mind, the highest example of this.
"She stuck with RIFT through think and thin and turned it back into a division. She worked hard to make everyone enjoy themselves and if not for her I don't think the division would have lasted as long as it did. I am very happy to see her lead RIFT as a squad."
Pie is awesome! I know whenever I logged into Rift she'd be there to set me up with bags, gold, and anything else I may have needed. She's outspoken, confident, and a riot in mumble. I'd let her lead me into battle, or swarms of mobs 30 levels higher than me any day!
Pie has been a wonderful asset in every game I have played with her. She has made amazing strides as a Leader while Rift was a Division. Everything that is set before her she strives to exceed expectations. A great example was when we were having a Guild meeting in Second Life. Not only did she provide a fabulous spot for the meeting she spent a few weeks trying to get everyone acquainted to the game to make it the best possible experience even if it was for a short time.
I was first introduced to Pie while playing Rift, and to me when I think of The Guardians and Rift the first thing that always comes to mind is Pie. When the Rift division closed the first time it was Pie that kept a light on for those that might pop in and out from time to time so they would always have a TG home to come back to. Pie LOVES Rift, and when many others would have joined up with another group to experience all that the game they love could offer, she stuck it out alone always hoping that a time might come when the division would come alive again. When that opportunity happened with Rift's first expansion, Pie was right there with the welcome mat out to greet everyone at the door. She made a point of always trying to get everyone involved in the guild's activities, not matter what level they were or how long they had been a Guardian. Pie has dedicated herself to making TG a better place everyday
The first time I heard about Pie was always with regard to Rift which I have heard (and seen) over and over again how well she has been the rock of that crew (division/squad?). She took the time to help show me the ropes when I decided to dabble in it. She always has the time to help out others if she can whether it be with information or action. When there is something that needs to get done, she is often one to just hop in and do it before waiting to be asked. The island she put together for the 'All Guild' meeting in Second Life is a prime example of that. She's not shy about letting you know what she doesn't know, as well, but she always wants to learn. That honesty is refreshing in a time of gaming where so many people playing would claim they've "beat the mmo
Pie Pie Pie - what isn't there to say about her that's good? =) Pie is one of the smartest, level-headed, intelligent individuals I've come to known in TG and to top it off, she is just plain NICE. She says what needs to be said when it needs to be said, and that also applies to functions such as leading the Rift division/squad and assisting in all aspects of keeping the guild running.
Well, I am very new to the guild so let me say that first so you don't disregard my opinion but understand that it is from a not all that enlightened view. I encountered Pie several times while I dabbled in Rift, this was only a few weeks of playing mind you so like I said my interactions with her were limited at best. From what I saw however I do believe that if anyone deserves the award it would be her. She was in the time that I was around an exemplary leader, helped me out a few times with simple noob questions, this may seem like a no brainer but it was the way she handled it that makes me think of her as a leader. Explained the answer and actually took the time to not only give a yes or no but a this is why. Even though I have only been here for a short time I can see that The Guardians handle the awards/honors very seriously, and I can say that in Pie this honor will be well placed.
This is but a small sample but all of us who know Pie can attest to just how much she does for us in the games we play together. All the while she does so with a cheerful spirit and I'm honored to be in a gaming family with her.
Please join me in congratulating Pie on this award!
Brothers and sisters of The Guardians I am proud to present one of the rarest honors a Guardian can achieve!
In recognition, long overdue, of outstanding achievement in The Guardians Guild Wars 2 Division:
Is hereby awarded the Field Achievement award
This award is given to Guardians who have achieved something great in the respective game they are playing. It is intended to award members for achieving something incredibly rare such as a server first kill for a raid team or completing all the achievements in a game where this is incredibly difficult. Getting an outstanding score in a PvP match or 20 headshots in a row, while impressive, is not going to earn you an award.
In Guild Wars 2, Structured PvP (sPvP) Voa was the 1st person in the entire game to achieve rank 50. He then went on to achieve an equally impressive 2nd game-wide to reach rank 70!
Voa was the first person in the universe to reach rank 50 in sPvp. Voa was the second person in the universe to reach rank 70 in sPvp. Voa's combination of dedication and skill are unmatched in all of Guild Wars 2. It's amazing he is literally the highest ranked sPvper in the entire game. This outstanding achievement does not only benefit Voa. Whenever we are in a game together and someone says, "Ermahgerd rank 70 :O :O :O", he always responds with something like, "Yes. Come check out the guild I'm in. We are a great group of people to Pvp with." Voa uses the attention he gets to positively represent and recruit for TG. I think Voa deserves this award for being the higest rank sPvper in Guild Wars 2 while using that to all of TG's advangtage.
I would like to give credit where credit is due. I use to play exclusively in Spvp. I can count on one hand the times that I've logged in and Voa was not on. As a steady hardcore spvp'er I've reached Rank 51 with devoting 3-5 hours playing time per day. Voa plays in excess of 10 hours a day. To accomplish Rank 70 is a feat in itself, but Voa also has completed 8 legendaries and ranked all his characters up to lvl 80 PVE. I can't fathom the time and dedication it took to achieve such acclaim in Structured. Only one or two others in the GW2 world have reached Rank 70. This speaks volumes to his consistent drive and determination to accomplish a seemingly unachievable goal.
Another inspiring example of a Guardian truly "Leading the Way!"
Please join me in congratulating him on this prestigious honor!
So apparently HoD(or) is pissed at IoJ because everyone's favorite (Mend) asshat, "Admiral Lord Flappy" has been running his mouth for some time now on the GW2 official boards. IoJ is comfortably in 2nd place over Crystal Desert but HoD(or) has been stirred up to the point that they are focused squarely on us.
Let's group up starting at 8:30 eastern and get as many numbers as we can to lend aid to push Hodor back to hole they crawled out of!

Credit to Voa for the trait build.
The stats do not include the infusions that would come from the ascended armor. Most likely would be a continuation of +vitality. The soldier's armors give max power/armor/vitality and Runes of the Traveller give you perm. 25% speed increase. Sigil's are player preference.
The idea here is the synergy with meditations. They all grant fury/2k heal and healing skills give retaliation. Virtue of Reslove grants heal, Retaliation and clears 3 conditions. Virtue of Courage grants Aegis, Protection, Stablity and Retaliation. Heal skill is Litany of Wrath because it is a meditation so it grants double heal, fury, retaliation, bonus heal on damage and on a 24 sec cooldown.
Bane Signet is something I am trying out at the moment to knockdown those pesky runners that are just out of my reach but Smite Condition would be next best option because of 16 sec condition cure and fury/heal.
My favorite tactic is to target a caster at the back/back middle of the oncoming zerg and when within range teleport to them with Judge's Intervention. This grants fury and aoe burn. I then pop Virtue of Justice for AOE blind and 3 stacks of might. Then pop Virtue of Courage Stability/Protection and use GS2 Whirling Wrath to unload mass dps to everything around you. This puts you in the back line and away from the wall of enemy AOE at the front of the pack. By the time you have completed your whirl the enemy zerg has started to scatter and your friendly zerg has just smashed into the scattering zerg. This sows confusion and chaos in the enemy zerg and that alone is a powerful weapon and then it is usually all over but the crying and mopping up of the enemy.
There are also skill tactics to allow you to teleport (blink) almost at will around the map that if you try this style Voa or myself would be happy to tell you about.
This is by far the most fun I have ever had with my Guardian (or any of my toons) to date in over a year of gameplay! I highly encourage you to try it out!
Come one! Come all! GW2 World vrs World Wednesday is back! Now that the horrible outnumbered matchup for Season 1 is complete and the revamp of how world matchmaking works we have a favorable matchup this week! We are already ahead in the matchup this week against Darkhaven and Ferguson's Crossing and after the experience I had yesterday, it's time to take out a little frustration, TG style! We completely took all of EB and most of DH's map if that is any indication.
Any level character (above lvl 2) can join your friends and guildies to dish out a good ol' fashioned ass kicking! If you have been away from GW2 and looking for some action, or just looking for some sweet, sweet PvP payback then take up your weapons and meet us at the Lion's Arch fountain at 8:30 Eastern on Wednesday 12/18!
So full disclosure, I'm an American Man U fan and have been since 1994 but this is still incredibly awesome!
Skip to the 4:00 min mark and enjoy the show. Truely awesome fan support!

I saw this not long ago and it is super interesting about trying to use science and the Bible as a historical text to try and explain the phenomenon of the Star of Bethlehem at Christmas.
It's an hour long but well worth the watch when you have the time. Whether you are a Christian, Atheist, Agnostic or Other the science of it is pretty fascinating. Plus, it's Christmas time so why not
So some people have asked me about my shatter mesmer and what the stat combos I use are.
Well here ya go!
So first, like most of Osicat's shatter builds the Staff is your primary core of the build because it gives you the most defensive capabilites with chaos armor, chaos storm which does damage but more importantly you can phase retreat out of it to combo chaos armor on yourself and save the skill for if you need to reapply it. Your main focus in staff is to get clones out so you can use them for shatter.
Your sword/focus are used for bursting your target down. The Illusionary warden is also good to put in the middle of zergs or for a pesky ranged that the warden can reflect. The temporal curtain gives swiftness, of course, but also in combat can be used to inflict cripple or yank a target.
But this post isn't about how to mesmer, it's about the stats I use.
So I use solder's armor and weapons to be tanky, The sword is legendary but I the calc. doesn't have legendary as a selectable option. So the initial stats when you pull up the calc. will not factor in the stacks of precision. The food/oil buff is important to keep up though. I use travellers runes because it helps contribute to the stats/boon duration/crit damage but more importantly keeps a 25% speed buff at all times. Now of course the tanky-ness will increase as I upgrade all of this to ascended and put infusions into like toughness or vit. but this is a pretty good mix i think.
49% crit chance without stacks or fury/ 75% crit damage. 3k attack power/ ~2500 armor value (not counting bonuses from chaos armor or protection buffs) and ~20,500 actual health.
