All You Could Ever Want to Know About Me...and More!Edit

Obsidian FlameDesecrate EnchantmentsRay of JudgmentSight Beyond SightStonesoul StrikeAura of the LichEnergy SurgeSignet of Shadows

  • I'm a male player in my mid-20's. I play Guild Wars because my best friend played it and wanted me to play it, but at the time my computer couldn't handle it. Once I got a better comp(in Oct '05), I got it and have been playing since. I have 2 Prophecies accounts, both with Factions and Nightfall linked. Before I started GW I was a dedicated Diablo 2:LoD player, and still fire it up regularly. I also play Pogo.com and occasionally Xbox(still no 360:-/), in games such as Rainbow Six 3:Black Arrow, Ghost Recon 2, GR2:Summit Strike, Splinter Cell:Chaos Theory, Crimson Skies, and various others, though my Black Arrow is my favorite(I really want an Xbox 360 now so I can play RS:Vegas and Fable 2, grr). Aside from gaming, my primary interests are music and movies, with music being my single greatest love barring friends and family. I listen to several different musical styles, but metal is my favorite. Favorite metal bands include Blind Guardian, Savatage/TSO, Jon Oliva's Pain, Circle II Circle, Sabbat(UK)/Skyclad, Falconer, Tarot, Rage, Wuthering Heights, Heathen, and Iced Earth. From the non-metal side of things, I like Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, Chris Knight, Tom Petty, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, New Model Army, Ten, Blue Oyster Cult, Magnum/Bob Catley, and Jethro Tull to name a few. As far as films go, a few faves include Pulp Fiction, Braveheart, The 13th Warrior, Conan the Barbarian, The Killer, The Crow, Big Trouble in Little China, Tremors, and the Lord of the Rings movies. On the television side, the shows I currently watch are the various Law & Order shows, The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, and 24, and I also enjoy a lot of non-current shows, such as Have Gun Will Travel, Marshall Dillon/Gunsmoke, Columbo, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Justice League(I'm a longtime comic junkie, with JLA in particular being a fave), Highlander, and The 3 Stooges. I also like pro-wrestling, though the current WWE product bores me and I get most of my wrestling fix from TNA/Ring of Honor. And last of all, unlike many people my age, I even enjoy READING. I tend to read horror and fantasy mostly, with favorite authors being Robert E. Howard(creator of Conan, though I prefer his Solomon Kane stories), Robert R. McCammon, Brian Lumley, H.P. Lovecraft, and, as will be obvious to anyone who reads my character profiles, Michael Moorcock.
  • In Guild Wars, my favorite professions are ranger and paragon, followed by necromancer and elementalist. While I enjoy my warrior and assassin, ultimately their play style is not my ideal play style, so I don't favor them as much as I do my ranged attackers. My mesmer I enjoy as well, but am not as often in the mood to play him as I am my other casters. Recent playing with ritualist as been enjoyable, but I'm not sure where I'll rank him overall yet. Behind ranger, para and necro, not sure if I prefer him to ele and mes or not. I've also started a dervish, but he's still low level so I can't give a solid opinion. Early playing makes me think I'll rank him at the same level as warrior and assassin though. I haven't done much with monk, as I tend to prefer to be dealing damage myself, rather than having to focus on how healthy everyone else is. Maybe I'll eventually give her a smiting setup or something(and I really should level her up, so I can eventually use her to 55). And of course, you can see my character info below for more info on my playstyle.
  • My contributions to the Wiki include submitting and discussing builds, commenting on skills and items, correcting typos and grammatical errors, adding update info, creating pages and uploading images for various weapons and items, posting notes and trivia tidbits, and organizing/cleaning up pages that needed it.
  • My sandbox, with skill ideas and random commentary on assorted GW stuff.
  • My Guild Wars wishlist
  • My Guild Wars page for builds that I like, want to test, or want to save for some reason.
  • Oh, hey, BTW, fuck you Wikia for your shitty ad placement. I thought one of the "advantages" of Gravewit selling us out to Wikia was less advertisements. Not only do I NOT see less ads, I see a BIG FUCKING AD BAR(plus a "Wikia spotlight" screwing up the format of many of the pages I've looked at. GG, morons.
