New gaming rig for Louhi (to enjoy gaming on).

The old gaming rig are 8 years old now, so it´s time to build a new one (for use at least 6-8 years). Today the old rig has as follow: ASUS Maximus III Extreme Mobo with 24 Gb DDR3 memory, i7 930 2,80 Ghz CPU, ASUS GTX 780 graphic card, SATA HDD. (I have only made some small upgrades over the years). New gaming rig. This rig shall be ready at the end of this year…… (It will probably “for normal consumers” as me, (lol) end up on the top range of gaming rigs, aka “overkill” and it´s so costly so I can only afford one part every month or must wait to next month to buy next item, it will take me a long time to build this rig, but I can wait). First out, was the new chassis: The ”Godzilla” a Super-Tower chassis. This is due to the 27...

My poor DPS ;)

Well.... I felt like I slept thru a lot of this, but I was paying attention and hope to do much better next time. It was good to be with you all and Agdang always has a great attitude and encouragement for all of us (me) that doesn't quite hit the standards yet. Waiting for some training from him on add ons and using my pyro and healer too. Great job as always.

End with the wicked WICKED

One way how to end the road of leveling the WICKED minion. This way cost a little, let say around the cost of 1 REX and you will finish it in half the time or less. Just follow these simple rules. Only look at the STAMINA bar, when it hit 7, start to follow this road to the end (25). ONLY play without any auto-program for minions. ONLY play with 1 min cards. Let the WICKED get full stamina, let say 7/7. When playing with the WICKED, that’s no problem to play Harvesting or Life or both, they give the same result 225 MXP (only different are the loot, later when hit 25). Well, started with 7/7, run down to 0/7 (you must use the other minions card to get the right card for WICKED). WAIT until 1 new stamina is up, then run that also to zero stamina! Then comes the magic trick...

Professor Jairone called the mage students' class to order today, for Jairone's School of Magic and Mystery inside the beautiful Gaiscioch dimension. No Muggle Studies for us as there was much to learn with Pyromancer, Chloromancer, Archon, and more. As we learned about the ancient runes of these builds, Jairone gave instructions and pointers to help us with our future wand-wiggled fiery infernos. Don't miss out on the next round of Jairone's academy of the arcane!

When life throws you scraps, turn them in to crafts (or crifts!)

The Telara Saga crew formed 3 raids to unite against the terrors awaiting us in Planetouched Wilds. We crossed the savage wilds and encountered the wrath of Kahns (Kahn!), including one magnificent T-Rex. We mastered the art of bouncing back out of the trenches and up the steep steps to claim our prizes!

Fog puts the FUN in raiding

There may not be crying in baseball but there is definitely laughter in raiding - with Gaiscioch guildies. Hitting some old world raiding content gave our giggling group a run past some old baddies who have lost their bite. Achievements? Cha-ching! We wrapped up the evening with the cats, and chickens, and coyotes - oh my! Faelord Twyl was our final mirth-less mob who met his end and our happy heroes rejoiced.

3 Way Zerg Fight

The best moment of the evening was the three way zerg fight for Stonemist. Our group was barely holding their own, and quite honestly didn't seem to be able to come out on top, but our commander bravely stood in the middle striving to stay alive so that we could cap. By continually throwing our range damage, cc and heals on him, we came away with what can only be called a 'steal' of the objective. Immediately upon claiming stonemist we wiped both other zergs and claimed our surprising victory!

The only thing I try to stay away from more than puzzles - well, is maybe jump puzzles. But they draw me in, I'm just fascinated by them! Well, if you've ever struggled but would really like to learn, then this workshop and Eluveittie's knowledge and tremendous patience is for you. There are tips and tricks a-plenty as well as step-by-step instructions (did I mention patience??) at times to help even the novice (me!) make it through. A must attend, to tackle Tok's.

A nightmare before bed

A nightmare raged in Tarken Glacier with a small band of Telara's heroes standing in its path. Fritzl and Teicneo knew if they wanted to banish the nightmare for good, they needed to send a signal to the Gaiscioch. Hoisting the banner and blowing the horn of fellowship, our brave souls stood bravely and awaited a reply. Without fail, more Gaiscioch champions arrived to raise sword, staff, dagger, and fist to banish the malicious corruption invading the tundra. Our defenders conquered... until next the nightmare returns.

So I logged my character, which is level 50 and there is a weird colorful number going up after a bar fills, so far I have like 70ish of these colorful numbers, they are red, blue and green, no clue what they do. I tried my best to remember my AvA nights with Fog from like two or three years ago, then I remembered the crown thingie was super important and that I should never leave it's side, I also teleported around a bunch because we had to close... Rifts? Doritos? Dolmens!! That spit enemies and are basically a shiny circle piñata full of goodies and shinies! We also poked our collective heads inside dungeons, waited for bosses to be back from lunch break to play patty-cake with them, touched shiny Sky-ShaaaaaaaaaaaRRRRrrddddddDds to get even more skillpoints that I have no clue where to add :3 Overall, tons of fun!

This is what it must feel like to be competent

So, tired again so not going to put a lot of effort into this: I was trying to figure out what to play tonight because there was a rift event and this gw2 event. The gw2 event sounded like you had to actually be good at playing the game which made me hesitate. The other event was rift and I basically wrote a macro that plays my character in that game so figured that would be easy. But then I wanted to make a level 1 rogue and level it in wvw because....I don't know why actually I just thought that would be a good idea. EDIT: I remember why now, because I wanted to actually be playing HZD but my playstation doesn't get here until tomorrow so instead I went to play guild wars but I thought it would be cool to play that instead...

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Well, the best time for Gaiscioch and friends and the worst for all those raid bosses who are now taking a little necro-nap. We ran through Greenscale's Blight (does that dragon ever learn?), River of Souls, and Infernal Dawn. Then we took on two of the Bindings of Blood raid instances. Success all around! (For us, not them.) Speaking of them, they seemed to have a common trait. Most of them were dragons. So many dragons! Just dragons, dragons, dragons, and more... Dragons, dragons, have armored scales, Dragons, dragons, whose claws impale. Dragons, dragons, with tail and breath, Dragons, dragons, front and back is death. Dragons, dragons, learned to fly.

We were walking around when suddenly there was this monster! Our raid leader was like 'whoa traveler' and then we went to fly in to fight it. However instead of flying in I jumped to my death. The rest of this story is just a fever death dream I had as my bloody bled out. For about 2 hours we threw ourselves at this creature trying to figure out to break it, when in the second hour we realized that this creature could teleport you!! This caught everyone by surprise - how could this be possible?! What's more, is the teleporting may have been linked to some red circles. We were not sure about this, but it seemed if you stood in a red circle you might get teleported somewhere else. There were also green circles but those obviously didn't do anything...

We traveled across Mathosia thwarting the seemingly unending invasions that plague Telara. However, this trip decided to take an odd turn. Water and Death rifts that spawned...FIRE invasions!? Are the planes working together against us now? Is the Blood Storm rising anew? Or was there just a glitch in the particular Water and Death rifts in Iron Pine Peak where we experienced this abnormality? We may never know.

Defeating Planarchs, rifts, and invasions alike; the Storm Legion was quelled and Forts Brevo and Antapo secured from planar threats. Yet another successful event and enjoyable evening for all participants! And since our focus was on Air...I figured a poem as equally light and breezy: a haiku! Like a mighty wind, Storm Legion charge Ascended, victory is ours. And mandatory gaming slogan since we ended the night defending bases: "All your base are belong to us." Because they did!

6 months gone from such epic battles

Much time has passed since I have partaken in wvw. Took a while to get bearings, but leader was awesome. I think we had 2 squads, one was a leading necro, there were GSCH tags everywhere. It is so awesome to see. With such great numbers, and being new to the map, I would occasionally get disoriented but it was always easy to find squad members to get going again. Eventually I started hearing call outs to those familiar places "Hills" or "Bay", and was able to enjoy the onslaught ! The hills battle was down right hilarious as we were out numbered but got lucky as red and blue battled it out with one another as we took over the keep and then managed to hold it as a large 3 way battle broke out. Also, huge props to the discord team voice tool...

Major rifts from the Plane of Death were vanquished all across the Dendrome as Gaiscioch and friends took up the banner of the Telara Saga. As always, a fun night deserves a fun poem: There once was a group of Ascended, who formed against Death and defended, the vast desert plain, Dendrome in Brevane, turning the Court from Endless to ended. After defeating both major rifts and strongholds, we turned our gaze towards the Venefic Locus to face Ahkane the Eternal. Like the Endless Court before him, he too failed to live up to his grandiose title. He doesn't really deserve his own poem. Fiiiiiine...

The Lag Monster seemed to be siding with P.U.M.P.K.I.N. on the next boss fight, which left some interesting raid wipe bodies floating in mid-air.
