You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

Hello. I've been playing - off and on - since January 2006. I lurked on the old Guru forum for many years and eventually signed up to it recently.. then read that it was closing down. :( I'm glad to see it found a new home.

My name is Shayne. I haven't played much Guild Wars in the last four years.

But! When I did play, I started in the fall season of 2005 and mained ranger. I mostly stuck with PvE, though I spent a lot of time playing the competitive festival PvP formats. I am formerly a top 100 list Rollerbeetle Racing player (and have continued the pursuit of seeking the fastest finish times and have become the fastest racer in Guild Wars 2's Sanctum Sprint activity).

Heya everyone!

I'm Vincento from gw1g. I had previously posted regarding doing full campaign solo speed runs!

GW has been a part of my life since 07'. I took a break for a few years and took up other hobbies- one of them being speed running. I returned to the GW community sometime last year after getting the idea to beat the games as quickly as possible in a single segment.

I've currently got Factions and Prophecies routes in the works and intend to get runs in of those games in the next break (starting in June). I do these with no outside help (players, storage, etc.) and from start to finish, using only henchmen. I aim to eventually finish good runs in of all the main campaigns and possibly an all campaigns run!

I'll probably post intermittently about speed strategies and theory crafting for runs. Looking forward to bonding with you all once again in an attempt to go fast!

Hello all,

As GW Guru is about to be put to rest I'll post up over here. Looking forward to keeping the community of GW alive one way or another.
Username is the same here, there and everywhere. I'm still a member/Councillor/Office of Servants of Fortuna [SoF] even though they mostly moved to GW2.. I never have manged to get into that game myself.
Did my stint as mod of Ventari's a few years ago on GW Guru. Other than that have just enjoyed community threads and discussion.
I take long breaks from GW every now and then but there is always something to pull me back, and right now I'm back and looking forward to meeting new/old/returning players.
I like to help out and provide information after 11 years of playing so I'll try and provide answers in the Q&A section!

Hopefully see you around.

Hi there. I'm Hyper / Hyper Nl. I'm an old user of the Guild Wars Guru website and the Presearing.com forums, which sadly both seem to be gone now. I've been registered on GW2 Guru for a long time now, before the release of GW2 but I forgot about it years ago. I'm glad my account is still here.

 

GW_Avatar_Full.jpg
Yesterday, during the last day of the boardwalk games, I maxed my last title towards "God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals". With this, an epic 10 year journey has come to its end.

The first title I maxed was Tyrian Grandmaster Cartographer and it truly felt like an achievement. Over the years I slowly worked towards new milestones, but for a long time I considered GWAMM to be unreachable. However, the game developed and I grew with it. Last summer I finally made the last big leap with 6 hard-mode titles, the Vanquishers and two of the three Guardians leaving me at 29/30. Until today.
