  1. Yesterday
  2. Been playing MoHon since the PSP days. I'll be playing as well, however I will wait for the PC version since I do not have a PS4 or XboneOne and don't plan on getting a 4 year + old system just to play it. Good thing there is cross platform play.
  3. Cool Gicker. I'll check out the fantasy grounds thing. I've been using Maptool which is free, but haven't tried using it remotely yet. I could work around your schedule and could probably convince my son to join in as well.
  4. Last week
  5. I'd be interested in this, if the play schedule is something I can work with. I'm guessing you guys are in Utah, which means I'm 3 hours ahead of you guys. It'd like have to be on a Saturday afternoon / early evening my time to be able to play. If we started at like 7 or 8 pm your time, It'd be 10-11pm my time. Anyway, not expecting you guys to work around my time zone... but if it does work for you guys, I'm in. I have a standard license for Fantasy Grounds. Check it out here: In order for us to play using Fantasy Grounds, you guys would have to buy or sub at standard level, or one of us would have to buy (expensive!) or sub at ultimate. I also purchased the 5e players handbook and hoard of the dragon queen module for Fantasy Grounds. I could be convinced to DM that module Cheers, Gicker / Steve
  6. So I changed servers to the Goblin server. It was a free world transfer as it's a low population world. Same datacenter as Balmung, so cross server parties should be possible when it is implemented. The queues on Balming were getting rediculous. It was normal to spend 2-3 hours in a qeueue. When I spent 5 hours ina queue to play for 45 minutes, I was done.
  7. Hi Shrimp, glad you posted about this. I was thinking about posting something as well. Been playng a DD 5E campaign with my son and his friends. wanted to see if there was more interested in table topping. I sent you a pm.
  8. Earlier
  9. The next game in the Monster Hunter series is coming to PS4, Xbox 1, and (later) PC early next year! I mentioned before that I love the Monster Hunter franchise, but it's been exclusive to the 3ds for a long time, which lacked voice chat for coop and greatly limited the audience in the west (plus it meant that the games couldn't evolve too much due to technical limitations). The advancements in the new one look amazing, and according to the devs and people who saw a private demo, it keeps everything people love about the old games. I already know I'll be playing it a lot when it releases, and would love if others would join for some coop! For those who don't know, the series is about hunting down dangerous monsters and using materials from them and the environment to make stronger gear and items to hunt stronger monsters. Which sounds simple, but it's a lot of fun in practice! There's 14 different weapon types that all play very differently, plus you'll want to bring along useful items that often vary depending on the hunt. If you're using a bowgun or elemental weapon, you'll also want to bring bullets or a weapon specific to each monster. In other words, there's a big focus on preparation, and it works very well. World adds much larger environments and a focus on using the world around you to your advantage- things like causing a rockslide on top of the monster, tricking it into smashing a dam and getting pushed off a cliff by the water, or using the food chain (by using a monster's natural prey to lure it to you, or pitting it against a predator). I'll be playing on PS4 initially, and there's a good chance I'll pick it up on PC as well when that version releases. Unfortunately, there's no crossplay planned. If you want to play with people you don't know, the PS4 will likely have the largest userbase.
  10. There's no cross-server friends at the moment, but they're working on it. Sorry, I thought it was already in when I transferred. I'm Kaien Obinata on Cactuar now.
  11. Eldryth, how would I add you to friends' list? Is it possible to add cross-server friends? What's your character name of the other server and which server?
  12. I resubbed about a week ago myself. Also doing PotD groups a lot, as well as completing the Heavensward content.
  13. All raid content can be done in exotics. Numerous bosses have been cleared by guilds in full masterwork (though these are top end players, so I'm not in any way suggesting that as our way to go). However exotics, with a few sprinkled in ascended and people constantly moving towards more ascended will be fine. The order in which one probably should aim for gear is trinkets (easily obtained, albeit with a time investment, from the new living story maps.) Weapons are the biggest damage/throughput boost and so can be honed in on in terms of crafting. Armor, however, is a minor upgrade in terms of overall throughput. They're also cripplingly expensive to get your hands on. Grind your living story currencies and unbound magic, get your trinkets together. Begin crafting weapons, do Tequatl for shots at drops and be doing fractals. Then we just need to get in there and start raiding. With regards to raiding: one thing I'm noticing and it's concerning to me, is that we seems to just be drop of the hat running. Is this the intention going forward? In my experience with a decade of raid leading behind me... that doesn't usually work out. Pugging additional runs because we have a fair amount of people on is one thing, but in terms of a progression oriented team with a desire to down bosses, I'm strongly of the opinion that we need a set night or two with set times. I know this doesn't necessarily work for everyone, but I think a core prog team needs to exist that has these things. This prog team can then help others with content on off nights. Just my thought. (I know that at least some of the members of my former WoW LDS guild who hope to join up and raid with us feel the same as well.) My other suggestion, since we seem to at least partially focused on using discord as our main forum medium for raiding, could we possibly get a handful of other Text channels created on the MoB discord so that these sorts of posts can end up there and not be necessarily lost beneath other chatter?
  14. Just resubbed a couple days ago to try and level some more jobs before Stormblood releases in just over two weeks. There's a lot of info out on all of them from a preview event that just dropped NDA today. Really not sure what to main at this point- both of the new jobs sound great in action, but so do the revisions to a lot of other jobs. Here's links to info on the changes: Yes, I changed servers, but there's cross server grouping now, so if you want to do anything just let me know when. I'm mostly grinding in Palace of the Dead now- it's great for leveling up extremely quickly.
  15. I actually just got back into GW2 myself. Legion's great- if you have a good guild to raid with. Unfortunately, the stuff outside raiding isn't much of an improvement over previous xpacs, so people got burned out quick- the guild I was with disbanded with some of us coming to GW2. So as fun as it was, I'll be sticking with GW2 and FFXIV for now. I'm enjoying GW2 a lot more than I remembered, but it's still pretty early. I'm also excited to try GW2's raids! Apparently I missed the first attempt a couple days ago, looking forward to the next one!
  16. Hiya Xel! I don't play GW2 at the moment (not enough hours in the day, alas) but I remember fondly playing with you and with everyone else on here. Good times!
  17. Well the point was to practice, so exotics are fine...but definitely be aiming for ascended gear! Trinkets especially you can do with little difficulty; the LS3 zones can be farmed for petrified logs, jade shards, etc...and you can get a full set of ascended trinkets in a couple of days, essentially for free. We had a couple that were not fully geared, and we still managed to do pretty well.
  18. Sorry I missed this, only found out about it afterwards. Although, considering I only have exotics, it's probably for the best until I gear up.
  19. Nice job on the practice run last night folks; considering most of us were totally inexperienced with GW2 raids and we weren't even running a full 10 man squad, the fact that we were able to split the vale guardian and down the splits is pretty impressive!
  20. Hey Xel, You actually missed us. Dungeoneering INC disbanded after some major burnout. Some are playing on Hyjal, some are on Aerie Peak Alliance side. Several of us are just in GW2
  21. Of the WoW crew that is coming over, one is playing Condi Engineer, the other is playing Revenant. Currently gearing condi. Have another with some interest as well, though less sure than the first two playing Condi Necro
  22. And I can vouch for Trav. He knows the game. Feel free to shoot me a msg or something if you want to run around maps with your alts too if I am on. Kinda hard nowadays but all this talk of raiding has gotten me excited to play again.
  23. Don't mind the guidance as well, but I would not want to be liability in a raid. Not raid ready by any means, but even though I'm not the best at the whole jumping puzzle thing, I'm not a bad mesmer. Those links will certainly help with the I tend to play a condi mesmer. Still, I am excited that the guild is finally tackling raids. I still have to clear all the other end game maps...barely started on Bloodstone fen (the whole vertical thing of the expansion is throwing in for a loop). BUT - I do enjoy the game. Wouldn't mind doing the end game maps with guildies and some 5 man dungeon whenever anyone is running it. So stoked though! Let's do this! I'm going to work hard to get geared....I just hope someone who played WoW with me and raided me can vouch that I'm not a total noob
  24. Spudmaster Bob here! I recently finished my full ascended vipers set including the accessories from LS3 for a PS + Condition Warrior meta build, and am getting antsy to try a few raid encounters. So far the only one I've read up on is the Spiritvale encounter (round platform, red, green, and blue quadrants), since that is one Dev mentioned we could start with, but if there are any others we are going to start with let me know and I'll check 'em out. I also have a fully ascended zerker elementalist if needed, but haven't done any research yet on the Meta builds for that one. Lady is also interested, but I forget which build-type she is targeting.
  25. I'd like to note that getting Ascended weapons(via crafting) and accessories (using the living story season 3 maps) is fairly important for raiding, but my understanding is that with that starter set in place you can do the early bosses in the early raids and thus get chances at ascended gear drops.
  26. Alright: so with interest being garnered I can post a bit more about me. My main is a Guardian, full ascended across the board including off-meta weapons and such. Those who've played other games with me, Eonan and Eldryth in this case, can vouch for me making the efforts to be the best I can in any scenario. I take raiding seriously because it's a commitment. My history is that of a raid leader, and seeing that the MoB squad had not previously fielded a team this expansion, it had been my intention to step in and fill that raid leader/shot caller role. It's what I tend to do in games, and have had success with it. I've had several, what I think can be termed, zero to hero success stories. I gravitate towards this role and can honestly say that I tend to have the most fun while in it. Strategies, adaptation and that sort of thing tends to be something I excel at. (Please don't interpret this as me saying "all shall bow to shrimp" but more a "here's my resumé, every team needs a leadership corps") Now, two of what I'd term my WoW crew, have stepped up and thrown their hats in. (Eldryth and Eonan) We spent the better part of the past year playing WoW together and raiding over there. We also have other WoW guild mates who have been testing the GW2 waters and likely would seek to be incorporated into the raid team as well. I believe Eldryth and Eonan can vouch for us having formed a fairly tight knit crew in our time together in WoW. (This is mostly me vouching for those players who may not yet be on the forums.) As someone with a raid lead history, I have done a bit of research into GW2 raiding. Reports indicate that for people with a "raiding" mindset it is a highly satisfying and challenging bit of content. Without a constant gear treadmill, fights can be designed around tight execution and around mechanics that can rarely be simply "outgeared" or "brute forced." GW2 raiding is still in it's infancy, but the people I've talked to and the reading I've done indicate that people who have spent a great deal of time raiding in other games find GW2 to be a refreshing take on the content type. Meta is, sadly, more important in GW2 than in other games, but I do think it's very very important to keep in mind that this will be a learning and growing experience for folks.
  28. So there is interest! Good! I've recently come back, and was interested in raiding once I got some Ascended gear. I'm a ranger, and was planning on going with a healer build, but since that's filled I guess I should go with one of the DPS/Support Druids instead? I'd be fine with any, just thought main healer would be in demand. Would one of these builds be preferable?
