Novice Dungeon Runs
Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Novice Dungeon Runs.
First, a "programming note". Novice Dungeon Runs is changing our format slightly, as Twilah and I will now be teaming up to bring you a full Sunday afternoon of dungeon crawling good times for all. We both love the idea of promoting guild participation, meeting new folks, going through the lore, and helping all to learn these dungeons, so those are the things NDR will continue to focus on. We hope that this new format will help make sure everyone has a chance to run things they want and help keep organization and participation easier.
Sadly, Twilah will be out this Sunday due to a RL commitment, but is hosting an early morning run for this dungeon as well. If things are more convenient for you to run then, I would highly encourage you to attend. You can find all the information about that event here: http://www.gaiscioch.com/tavern/guildwars_discussion/post_46126.html
And now, on with the show!
This week, Novice Dungeon Runs will be heading to Twilight Arbor, a twisted maze of plant, rock and root in Caledon Forest. Caithe has summoned us there to deal with a slyvari whom she was close with in the early days and who has since fallen to the Nightmare, Grand Dutchess Faolain, and both sylvari may have a few tricks up their sleeves yet.
As part of the new format, NDR will now be split into two separate events in order to help properly expore this dungeon and ensure ease of grouping and participation.
Event 1 - Twilight Arbor (Story Mode) (50+) - 3PM
This first event will be going through Twilight Arbor Story mode. This part of the event is specially geared towards people who have not run through Twilight Arbor before, or who want to run through the dungeon with alts that need to unlock the dungeon. We'll be meeting at the entrance to the dungeon which can be found at the Twilight Arbor Waypoint in northern Caledon Forest. We'll be organizing in Raid Call in GW2: PVE: Zones - Caledon Forest and begin forming up at 2:45PM server time. This dungeon requires at least level 50 to attend.
Event 2 - Open Run (Story/Exploreable) (30+) - 5PM
The second event will be based on what people would like to do most. This part of the event will allow attendess to catch up on any particular dungeon's story mode they'd like to complete, or tackle any Exploreable mode for dungeons you'd like to complete paths for or earn tokens towards armor and gear. This event will organize in Raid Call in GW2: PVE - Open World 3. We'll begin taking votes and organizing runs for particular dungeon requests at 4:45PM server time. The lowest dungeon (Ascalonian Catacombs Story) requires at least level 30 so any character you have past that level can attend.
As always, these events are for you guys and to help you learn dungeons, see lore, and meet family members new and old in a stress-free environment, so if you have any suggestions of other things you'd like to see in this event, or things you think can be done better, please contact either Twilah or myself and we'll be happy to see what we can do.
