Ryuko aka Ayamatta

First of all thank you for allowing me to join. Never got the invite to the guild but I think it was because I was having to much fun running, falling, building, being lost to notice the invite come. I did find it a bit overwhelming in all the right ways. LOL I even got to finish off an enemy player. Found really cool drops and learned what red border blue border are. Few hours of playing being chased, screaming and spreading out to make our numbers look bigger. Chase them like a bear! LOL Okay, now we run the other way. Many other commands were given as well. Like push them off the walls! No use fear skills. Don't try pushing them off. LOL It was a great night of changing worlds, getting wiped, changing tactics and charging off to some where else, scouting as the team breaks the walls.

Thought's and Reflections:
Any Interest in Creating an (In-Game) Gaiscioch Guild Hall in ESO?

Pardon me if this has already been discussed, but I was unable to find any content on the web site regarding an in-game ESO Gaiscioch Guild Hall. With the coming of the housing system in February, I was wondering if anyone in ESO would be interested in contributing for the purchase of a large house or estate for use as Guild Hall for Gaiscioch. For those who wish to spar, or have tournaments, we could make an outdoor arena. I think it would be a nice way to socialize in world and might lead to more spontaneous group events.

Great time in Brisban Wildlands

Great group today we started at Mrot Boru Waypoint and went west on the southern perimeter. Had lots of hearts, pois, waypoints and champions to fight today. We continued north all the way to the top perimeter and headed east. We stopped with an event in the Wendon Waypoint area, where we will start next week. Gma will be taking holiday time off after next week and will come back on the 7th of January. You all make sure you have a great Christmas and New Years! We may have some treats on our last day before the holiday!

Long learning session

Big thanks to Bob who hung there for a million and half deaths. Berk and Trent for jumping in early on for hard fights and limited rewards. Mal and Jax for the late night dps and a hanging trough a lot of wipes and blind leadership. We got the final boss to around 30% so we have a good understanding of each stage leading up to the brutal finale. Need some big hitters next week.

Short day but a lot accomplished

Thank you all for understanding about Gma's sprained wrist issues. We finished Caledon Forest quickly today and Entered the northern half of Metrica. Managed to fight the Fire Elemental and do the pre event. We then headed out to get a vista and POI and into one more event before Gma called it quits for the morning. It was very productive and emptying the bags was one of our chores to do. Hopefully, next week Gma will be able to do the full 2 hours and we will finish half of Metrica Province! Thank you all again for coming and enjoying the fun!

Forsaken Thicket - Stronghold of the Faithful, Escort Mission

We escorted Glenna towards the Stronghold of the Faithful through waves of white mantle. Upon reaching the gate, we were greeted by a white mantle officer, McLeod The Silent. Using all of our brawn and wit together as a team, we put down Mcleod and broke through the gates. We were met by the sight of Xera and her keep construct. Though we've got a long way to go into the stronghold, we've achieved a victory today that should not be diminished.

Starfall Prophecy Crafting Preview

I do not plan on spending a lot of time on the PTS, would rather explore it when it is live. :) I am very curious about crafting. So far the mining and foraging nodes are purple and I think the cloth is purple too, interesting color scheme trion. Mining nodes: Atramentium node Forage node: Faecap Mushroom (yes we can honestly say we are doing shrooms hoy vey) Cloth: starweave cloth leather: Starweave hide I looked at crafting to get an idea of components. At first glance they appear to have several expensive vendor items at 2 plat per vendor item and 4-6 various items needed. I do not think they have finalized crafting as I saw lots of gaps and couldn't find one item at all for pricing. So I am hopeful it won't be as horrific price gouge as it appears to me...

Many Thanks!

I ran my first guild raid tonight with Inosh as the raid leader... Everyone was SO welcoming, patient, courteous and FUN! I haven't been in a guild since shortly after vanilla because, well, I just couldn't find a family environment like the one that made playing WoW fun and friendly. I am so happy to have found Gaiscioch! Thank you to everyone for the great run, the upgrades to my gear (increased 9 points tonight to 830!) and for the socialization all while experiencing new content. I look forward to many more raids, events and socialization. Happy hunting! Jules*

GSCH strikes back against the Mad King!

The weather has started to turn chilly and rumor has spread that once again, the Mad King has come to torment the lands of Tyria. The GSCH leadership cried- "This will not stand!" Lachshmi gathered a large throng of compatriots from the guild this morning and we journeyed into the Mad King's Labyrinth to send his minions back into the underworld from whence they came. The call was heeded to enthusiastically that Shmi had to deputize Kitty to lead a 2nd squad of valiant adventurers into the land of skeletons, candy corn, and odd door portals. They swept into the Lab and ransacked the areas mercilessly, being rewarded with many shinies and bags of loot. The loot was a bonus, however, as the great reward was the camaraderie while stemming the tide of the Mad King's invasion for a time!

Guides & Walkthroughts:
Rift Macro Guide

This is a basic guide to get your macros working and how to successfully construct them. Rule 1: Spelling is Critical. Ability names and commands must be exact. Rule 2: each macro will cast 1 ability for 1 button push. (it is which ability that is the key to a good macro) Rule 3: The order of commands is the difference between a great and a crap macro. GETTING STARTED Open the macro window using the esc key menu. I also find it helpful to have the abilities window open as well. Below when ever {Ability} appears, it means the EXACT ability name, no brackets. (only play with macros in a safe area) Select a blank macro, enter a name. The first line should be: #show {Ability} This selects the ability icon that will display and the Cool Down timer shown...

Great group today! We found all the POIs that were hiding from us and finished the center area of the map. We had time left, so Gma Fog asked the group if they just wanted to find some fights to finish off the day. Of Course the answer was, "YES".. So off we went finding champions to fight in Brisban Wildlands.. Never knew there were so many. We had a great time helping each other running around the map and wreaking havoc as usual.

Raids in Guild Wars 2 are The End Content and I saw that Gaiscioch had group running raids, but as being european player usual event times aren't always working for me as most of the time events are on US primetime. So on January I started asking if there would be enough people for raids for EU primetime. After couple of weeks, we started group on Saturday 8am PST (4pm GMT). As being partly teaching group we had pretty rough start. Sure we got through to second or maybe even for third phase, but still it was pretty rough. After some time raiding on Saturdays, we changed it to happen on Sundays same time. We started to get core group for the raid. Marvelous Namrie as a tank, Glorious Kitty as a healer, Fantastic Jay as dps and Amazing Shaaba as a condition dps...

A Midsummer Night's Scream

*Mild Legion Spoilers - don't read if you don't want to see* A Midsummer Night’s Scream By Nichole “Twilah” Quillen Twilah couldn’t sleep. The Engineers’ Explosive Extravaganza had concluded a couple hours ago, and when she closed her eyes she could still see the buildings of Stormwind lit up by the rainbow of colors each firework had created. Even now the air was still so thick with gunpowder she could taste it in her mouth. Midsummer had always been one of her favorite holidays, but tonight the flashes of light and explosive bursts had taken her mind back to a darker place. She sat up and reached for her water glass to clear the taste in her mouth, trying to let go of the images of Karabor Harbor. The battle had been fierce and left her face forever marked with a long scar down the right side...

The Tale of the Enchanted Horse - Part 7 (end)

The Grand Vizier was transported with delight on learning the result of the interview, and his opinion of the doctor's skill was raised still higher when, on the following day, the princess behaved towards him in such a way as to persuade him that her complete cure would not be long delayed. However he contented himself with assuring her how happy he was to see her health so much improved, and exhorted her to make every use of so clever a physician, and to repose entire confidence in him. Then he retired, without awaiting any reply from the princess. The Prince of Hammerfell left the room at the same time, and asked if he might be allowed humbly to inquire by what means the Princess of Rihad had reached Daraz, which was so far distant from her father's kingdom, and how she came to be there alone...

When the Grand Vizier of Daraz had quitted her presence the evening before, he had resolved that the sun should not set again without the princess becoming his wife, and at daybreak proclamation of his intention was made throughout the town, by the sound of drums, trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments calculated to fill the heart with joy. The Princess of Rihad was early awakened by the noise, but she did not for one moment imagine that it had anything to do with her, until the Grand Vizier of Daraz, arriving as soon as she was dressed to inquire after her health, informed her that the trumpet blasts she heard were part of the solemn marriage ceremonies, for which he begged her to prepare. This unexpected announcement caused the princess such terror that she sank down in a dead faint...

The new Mordrem Magic- make everyone disappear!

The intrepid group ventured forth and made short work of the nooks and crannies of Verdant Brink. Suddenly, mid gliding to reach a most treacherous Hero Challenge, almost all of the band were whisked away into nothingness. Those remaining were left wondering where their comrades had vanished to. Was this some new fiendish magic of the Mordrem? Something from the Exalted perhaps? Or some freakish confluence of electricity that made most of the squad vanish. Soon the members reappeared one by one, mystified as to where they went or why. Undaunted, however, they regrouped only to have it happen again. Upon return, the group pressed on, completing several more challenges in taming Verdant Brink before moving on to what strange adventures awaited them in the land called Auric Basin.
