[NA][PvE/PvX][LFG] Returning Player LF Home


Recommended Posts

Hey, all!

I've played GW2 off and on since release, though I've never really found myself fully committing to the game, and I think a major reason for that is I've generally played by myself for the most part. I'm currently in one guild, and they're great, but the guild is really quite small, and I'm hoping to find something to make up for the times that I'm still running around mostly alone. So, I figured I may as well try and find that guild! If I'm being entirely honest, this game is extremely overwhelming to me at the moment. I know that a lot of people recommend against boosting, but all of my toons have been boosted. So I'm trying to play catch up with a lot of game mechanics and things while at max level. It's really overwhelming and exhausting having to go to the wiki for just about everything, but I really enjoy the game on a base level, so I'm trying really, really hard to power through. That said, I'm not saying I'm looking for a guild to like tell me every little thing to do or anything like that, just a guild that's willing to be patient with me.

A little about me:

  • I'm 25 years old, and I have a bachelor's degree in history. I plan to get a Master's soon as well, also in history, and I want to eventually get a PhD and hopefully work as a college professor. Outside of gaming, I'm a huge sports fan, and I play all sorts of games outside of GW2, though MMOs have always been my favorite.
  • I come from a "hardcore" PvE background in World of Warcraft. With that being said, I really want to focus on PvE in GW2 at some point as well. I haven't been able to do very much, as I don't really have much gear, so I've spent a lot of my time aimlessly running around in WvW collecting some loot haha. I have done a couple low level fractals, but that's about it.
  • I currently have an elementalist, guardian, and ranger at level 80, though I'm the type who will have every class at max sooner than later. My guardian is my "main" I guess you could say, though. At the moment, at least. Also, I'm on Fort Aspenwood.

What I'm Looking For:

  • I don't mind if your guild is ridiculously established or just starting out. Either one works for me as long as you're okay with me being newer to the game and really having no idea what I'm doing with like 99% of things. I'm learning more and more everyday, though!
  • I would really like it if your guild uses Discord for voice chat/talking out of the game. I love Discord and really like when my guilds/gaming groups use Discord.
  • If you think I may be a good fit for your guild, feel free to reply here or message me in game at Shimple.4318. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope to hear from some of you soon!

Greetings Shimple,

Having people to play and talk with definitely makes things so much more fun. From what you said, I think you might like my little home. We're called The Gryphons Aerie and we’re a small, casual/semi-casual yet social, 18+, PvE, family on Tarnished Coast. We love to help new and returning players get back on their feet. We're currently building up our ranks a bit in order to have more regular scheduled guild events, but in the meantime, we often just wing it for the night according to what folks want to do. Our current peak time tends to be in the mid-late evening EST (UTC-5), starting around reset, but we have a few others who are around from various time zones as well.

We’re willing to help out with any and all questions as best as we can, whether it's dungeons/Fractals, builds, and other general game questions. All you need to do is ask. We also don’t do the “speed runs”, exploits, etc, nor require anyone to bring a specific class or build for any dungeon run. Bring whatever you want and we'll have fun regardless.

We know that RL comes first and stress that fact.We’ll still be there even if you can’t for a bit of time. Just leave a little note to let us know you'll be away, and all is well.

We do not demand 100% representation.It’s not our business to tell you who you can and cannot associate with; that choice is yours alone.

We are focused on providing a place where people can feel comfortable and as though they are more than just a name on the roster. We want everyone to feel like family.We are very LGBTQ+ affirmative and do not tolerate any sort of derogatory words, comments, bigotry etc. toward anyone regardless of nationality, race, religious beliefs, gender identity or sexuality. Anyone violating that policy is subject to immediate removal, no questions asked.

We also have a Discord, where everyone is expected to use the text channels to some degree, but the voice channels are never required.

In order to maintain our "quality vs. quantity" aspect and help build the family-like atmosphere of the guild, we require an application. This application asks only for basic information to help us try to organize things to fit around everyone's schedules and takes just a few minutes.

For more information, and to take the next step in joining us, please check out our Guild Website.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note here or contact me in game and I’ll do my best to answer them.
