Hello Hello

My name is Adrian, im 25, living in Canberra working as a public servant!

To be honest I only heard about Guild Wars 2 about 30mins ago while I was watching IEM Gamescom (Global SC2 tournament) where someone mentioned the game on chat. I decided to look it up and almost immediately preordered the game. I have been waiting for a good MMO to come out since WoTLK which was my very first MMO.

Ive been playing video games probably for as long as Ive been able read (couple years). Currently im playing SC2, LoL and Diablo 3 but will probably drop them (except SC2) for GW2. Im not sure as to what my preference is whether it be pvp or pve since I havent played the game or guildwars 1 but I think I will go Sylvari Elementalist Healer.

Other than my interests in video games, I like reading manga and watching anime

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hey Fayte, welcome to the guild!

Always nice to have new members :D

GW2 really isn't muchly based on GW1 so dont need to worry much :P

What anime and manga are you interested in?

I myself watch Naruto, Bleach (up till Aizen saga), &One Piece. I also read the three manga's for these three + Claymore :P

Anywhoo welcome to Twelve :D

Hi Mang3ky0u!

Currently im reading naruto, bleach, fairy tail, claymore and kuroko no basuke. Im watching fairy tail (though waiting for the filler arc to end) and sword art online, I kinda gave up watching naruto and bleach after too many arcs! My friends keep telling me to watch/read one piece but the thought of being 670 odd chapters or 560 episodes behind scares me :S

I have been meaning to read Fairy Tale as a good friend of mine suggested it :P Ahhh One Piece is a must! However if you dont have free time then thats acceptable but its pretty cool :D

So have you played any of the BWE (Beta Weekend Events) or the Stress Tests?
Fayte
Fairy Tail is currently my favourite right now so I highly recommend it!

Unfortunately I didnt get the chance to participate in the BWE's but I think I'll be able to pick up the game pretty quickly, I have quite a bit of raiding experience from WoW, and im a pretty quick learner!

Did you get a chance to play much of the beta?

Hey Adrian,

Welcome to the Twelve Forums!

I am a big fan of Bleach (up until now), Rukia is my eternal idol (assuming she isn't constantly impaled, dying or written out of the story - which is 90% of the time).

Sword Art Online is great, but I also recommend Kokoro Connect - full of delicious teen juices, overflowing with angst and bitterness. It's like my panacea from reality.

I digress, now for your MSPaint challenge:

Draw me your best rendition of Zaraki Kenpachi (With Yachiru) and upload it to our image gallery. Colour is highly encouraged.

Enjoy your time here,
DS

Yeah I have played every single Beta event + all stress tests (available to the general public). I absolutely love this game! I can't wait for Saturday when this game goes live!!! SO BLOODY EXCITED!!!

lol but thats me :P I get excited over things... :D
Fayte
Hey Shaun

Thanks for the welcome! I'll have to look into Kokoro Connect and yeah I have to agree Rukia is probably the most underdeveloped character in the series.

baha and as for your request on my pride over my ms paint skills I will draw you a pictu...Nay! a piece of art

As Barney Stinson would say: Challenge Accepted!

Picture to come in "near" future :-)

Welcome to Twelve!!

We have other members in Canberra too. All this talk of anime and manga, makes me want to check out some of those series. Could anyone recommend a good site that has streaming links?

You mentioned you only just heard about GW2, I was thinking, " and this guy says he loves video games! Where has he been not to have heard about GW2 earlier?" but you could of have been pretty wrapped up in D3 n etc. In some ways, playing the beta events made waiting for GW2 so much harder, maybe you were better off.

Not playing the beta events doesn't mean you can't prepare for GW2. There's plenty of guides and videos. Although, some of them might have expired builds. This guide covers everything for someone completely new: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1058358-Guild-Wars-2-Mass-info-for-the-uninitiated.-READ-ME. This one is a list of tips n pointers http://www.imtwelve.com/12253-must-read-!!-epic-thread-of-clever-tips-tricks-for-gw2 And nustie has crafting covered http://www.imtwelve.com/12313-crafting-diy-guide-p. That should help bring you up to speed. :D

Hi Zodiac

Thanks for linking the resources, I'll definitely be reading up on as much GW2 as I can since the opening months will be somewhat of a race of sorts for those looking at endgame content. While I have heard of Guild Wars, I must admit I have been a little behind on whats coming out since I spend most of my gaming time playing SC2 and Diablo 3 (forums) and watching E-sports.

A decent streaming site which has which have most of the current anime (and some oldies) is crunchyroll.com, they have some annoying ads but they are supporting the industry, otherwise you can download torrents from animetake.com, as for manga I nromally go to mangafox.me

Hahaha there's plenty of teachers around here to help you out :P become the master you need to be as I shall say :P

Don't worry I don't intend on sleeping either ;)

I will be running an Asura Guardian :)

First thing I suggest you look at is the guide Zodiak has taken much of his appreciated time to put together and get upto speed with a few things. Here is the link:

http://www.imtwelve.com/12253-must-read … ks-for-gw2

As you will be playing a Elementalist with a heal spec I shall direct you to Docilus who is also running that spec on launch :D he will be able to provide you with a better understanding than I could :P

I shall link you also to the thread for elementalist discussions :D

Edit:

Here is the elementalist thread:
