Everyone’s talking about their servers only from the WvW perspective, trying to recruit as many numbers as possible before the paid transfers, focusing only on the mass PvP aspect of the game.
There’s more to it, as we all know. There’s the beautiful PvE side of the game, as well, plus all the opportunities to get together just for a bit of social fun.
Gunnar’s Hold is not only a rising star in the European WvW (and if you want to read a bit more about it, or join the effort, be sure to click here first), but also the place to be for PvE and social get togethers.
It’s even more so important with guesting finally just around the corner. Every EU player will be able to join us for PvE and social events we organise, and everyone is welcome to drop by, say hello and have fun together
I will keep this thread somewhat up-to-date with the pre-planned PvE/social events organised on GH. But to give you a rough idea of what’s happening here…
1. Daily mining runs
Every day at 7pm GMT we get together to gather the high tier crafting materials from Orr, Frostgorge Sound and Southsun Cove. We plan the route ahead, based on our community node map. We usually have a commander present to organise the run easier.
Easy materials, easy money!
2. Weekly Balthazar Temple Liberation
Every Wednesday after the mining run we organise a rush at the Balthazar Temple to allow all our server mates get their obsidian shards. With guesting, everyone will have a 2~3h window of opportunity to get their shards every week!
We’ve been doing it for almost two months now, and it’s really brought the server community a little step closer.
3. Orr Temples Liberation
About every week or so we also liberate the other temples in a pre-planned rush, with everyone from the server invited to join.
4. Costume Brawl Extravaganza
While this video shows our first social event featuring costume brawling as its main point of interest, we hope to expand on simply social get togethers as well, not only ‘serious PvE business’. An hour or two of meeting up ‘in person’ and fooling around, getting some brawling champions, getting free booze from the arrangers – fun, fun, fun!
5. Jumping puzzle and achievement runs
We’re also organising runs for jps and boss achievements from time to time, be it the Misplaced Ogre or the Spekks’ Laboratory.
6. Your own event!
Everyone on GH can organise and get people for anything they want, picking their own time and place. We’re all open to initiative!
Feel free to join us on the next Balthazar Temple liberation on 30.01 around 7.45pm GMT, even when guesting, and get the feel of GH hospitality o/
All the planning takes place on the GH community forum, so be sure to join it asap if you’re a fellow GHian
In case of my absence, any non-trolling and current GH player may update this thread.
