Low Level Zone Invasion Hunt (February 25, 2017)

Piggyback rides on Volan! Or maybe we were just jumping on his head to kill him. Once again, we were the bane of invasions, rifts, and strongholds all across Telara! Gaiscioch and friends focused on the continents of Mathosia, Brevane, and Dusken in an effort to hold back the tide of planar problems that continue to wash over the lands. Maybe one day we'll find the switch to all these rifts and finally just turn them off. Or maybe we'll open our own rifts in their planes and see how THEY like it!

Telara Saga: Hunting the Endless Court

Death comes for us all. Or is it that we all came for Death? 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... His name was Ahkane the Eternal, not sure if divine or infernal, why give him a song, can we move along, better poems belong in this journal...

RIFT Raiding Fun Run (Feb. 20, 2017)

Another successful night of conquering older raids, getting achievements, and just having some good tuatha fun! Our raid itinerary (in order) included: Greenscale's Blight River of Souls Infernal Dawn Full clears, but we did have a bit of a snafu with passing loot items through the raid so that everyone could unlock the appearances. It's definitely one of those things that will be what we joke about in I figured it needed a poem to commemorate it! Items galore, passed hand to hand, from squirrel to shield, this was the plan. Just accept trade, don't right-click and equip, Drag and drop in the window, pass to the next, do not skip! When done with the trade, step out of line, stand to the side, this should have been fine...

Low Level Zone Invasion Hunt

Just a casual Saturday morning... Shard hopping, jumping from zone to zone, mentoring appropriately, defeating invasions, closing rifts, and killing event bosses. You know, the simple things in Telaran life. We managed to defend Mathosia from all things invasion. Except for that one that happened while we were distracted by the Nightmare Rift. We don't talk about that. Ever. What invasion? Stillmoor was like that when we got there.

Telara Saga: The Great Abyssal Hunt

So we closed water rifts in a desert and made it snow in a fire rift. Apparently...Telara has global warming, too. But seeing as we're engaged in tasks to enable us to make it to a giant comet hurtling towards the planet... Yeeeeaaaah...bigger picture! ;-) Planarchs defeated, achievements completed, and another Dendrome boss just plain beated! (Because "beaten" doesn't rhyme, that's why!) It was another successful evening full of accomplishment and fun, which is the real story of the Telara Saga.

RIFT Raiding Fun Run (Feb. 13, 2017)

It was a night filled with big heads and silly hats in the 'ol Tyrant's Forge! (Thanks to the Hot Air Brew!) After an initial wipe on Johan to learn the mechanics, an accidental pull after resurrection and before healing put our skills to the test. It also put Johan in the ground! 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. Intelligence reports traced the Lag Monster as possibly having been released by Prince Hylas, so we hopped over to Greenscale's Blight to slap him and his big dragon around. Mission Success! Hopefully, the Lag Monster will despawn for future runs. All in all, a great time!

Telara Saga: Assaulting the Stronghold

Because an epic event deserves epic poetry: Twas the night of Telara Saga, and throughout the Dendrome, Ascended were gathered, to protect Hailol's home. With weapons and spells, prepared in advance, the strongholds were felled, invasions given no chance! Across northern Brevane, enemies all met their ends, the desert lands saved, by Gaiscioch and friends. Then like Atrophinius' mead, the achievements did flow, and at the end of the night, a live puppet show! It was another successful event with a large turnout for the Telara Saga! Lots of achievements, lots of fun...and a little bit of time spent as both a sheep and a shambler for me. I'll have to remember to pack some of my own mischievous magical toys for the next event...

Telara Saga III - Chapter 0

Oh my! We had three raid groups, several out-of-family visitors, and minimal deaths (always a good thing). In one hour we closed multiple rifts, went on a hunt, took an Empyreal fortress, killed a monstrous dinosaur, and made a Hive Dive, killing one of the three big bosses that lurk there. It was a fast, furious, frantic, and fun night with our family. Looking forward to the next ten weeks of our third Telara Saga!

Raids are hard, ok?

This event was a rollercoaster of emotions! We were able to do the escort and defeat McLeod in the first try without much problem, but then we decided to poke the bear statue and take a few shots at the boss. OH BOY! Is a complicated fight, with many mechanics, that are random. I felt so underdressed and so unprepared for this, like a complete noob. The instructions were clear, but I felt as if my feet were molasses and people got a bit frustrated with my slow reactions. Sorry guys I wasn't on top of my game :( After several tries I felt that we lacked coordination, and then I got Partner Aggro. It was fun, and we need more practice :3

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.

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.

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!

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...

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...
