Hello there! *waves*

I am Darek.
I was sent by the conclave to...

In short: I like to play games, and I like to read/watch certain kinds of Anime/Manga.

Used to play Ragnarok Online for a good 8 years or so, mainly due to War of Emperium (Castle Siege warfare) and the card system. I tried quite a few MMORPGs whilst I tried to find something similar. I ended up in Rift (no castle siege warfare) because their soul system and 'dynamic' content took my fancy. Guild Wars 2's WvWvW seems to be just what I have been looking for to spend countless hours on, and the weapon-switching, element-switching (Elementalist) seems to be my kind of game.

I've played (no longer active) Starcraft II: WoL (although probably get back when HotS hits); never played WoW; played the CoD series; never played the old Western RPGs like EverQuest, Baldur's Gate/etc; and I've pre-ordered Diablo III. Before Rift, most of my games that had RPG elements to them were more along the lines of Disgaea, Ragnarok Online/etc.

In terms of Anime; I enjoy the big 3 - One Piece, Bleach (esp. final arc) and Naruto. Others include GTO, Rahxephon, Tengen Toppan Gurren Lagann, Death Note, Howl's Moving Castle, RAINBOW, Star Driver, Hen Semi and a couple hundred other Anime.

In terms of Manga; I enjoy the big 3 - One Piece, Bleach and Naruto. Others include Highschool of the Dead, Mirai Nikki, My Balls, King of Thorn, Gantz, Bloody Monday, GTO/etc. At present continuing to read the big 3 as well as Nozoki Ana, I Am A Hero and a few others.

So, hello thar! Nice to meet you all and I hope I can join you guys once GW2 hits live :D

Lols My Balls. That was such a weird manga. Queen of Terror gets sealed in guy's right ball and devil girl has to get her out. Had a nice ending though. I laughed a lot through it.

Also, welcome :)

Hey Darek, a warm, sticky and gooey welcome to Twelve!

I saw your post in the anime recommendations thread before I saw this intro thread, and I got to say - great work with that post. I don't have as much time recently to catch up with all the cool series you mentioned. But I certainly want to give Deadman Wonderland a try, that's the second recommendation for that series that I got for it this week alone. However, GTO is completely badass and it's also really funny (Onizuka is a hilarious asshole, let's put it that way).

Ragnarok Online is a really fun MMO, I played the S.E.A version here myself. I had a Wizard, and this was when Jupitel Thunder was one of the most broken goddamn skills in the game. I literally remember just doing Ice Wall Ice Wall Ice Wall Jupitel Thunder Jupitel Thunder (ad infinitum) and going, "Okay, where is my XP and loot?". Never played in a WoE PvP battle, but as I know - it's really tough unless you are a Wiz or Sin.

I want you to join us not only when GW2 finally launches, I want to see you rocking with us when the next beta weekend event is announced (if at all possible). All of us have made a lot of great new friends and forged new teams during the first weekend beta, and there's a palpable excitement to meet yet more new people for the next outing.

Welcome to the guild Darek. We have a forum dedicated to anime and we will also be playing Diablo III when it launches so I'm sure you'll find some discussion to participate in.

WvWvW is looking to shape up well. I didn't get a chance to fully try it out but from what I hear it's great. No doubt we'll have a group of Twelvians representing our server on that front.

Hi all; thanks for the warm welcomings :D

Yea, I played a High Wizard in Ragnarok Online. Was able to obtain near instacast gear so was spamming spells like crazy.
Until, of course, soul linker came out with their 'reflect-2-magic-spells' buff on players. Guilds would just come in with a whole team of reflect-buffed people and just annihilate all the High Wiz in one swoop as they entered Emp room.
Loved the card system; especially using the Smokie Card to Hide. That was fun. Wish I had a Shinobi card though, you could cloak along walls with it :P.

I have a Level 50 Guardian High Elf Cleric on Rift which I'm currently actively playing with around 700+ PA and working towards my second ID gear. Still having difficulty with Maklamos interrupts, low core raider availability (due to Japan's Golden Week, work assignments and other issues) and currently don't have the dps for Ituziel.

Definitely looking forward to meeting you all in GW2. If there are more beta weekends (which I can only assume there would be) then I'll be trying out other classes as well. Will probably stick to a caster-based class though as I have done throughout my MMO life.
