    I should have written this months ago. I am very sorry for my unannounced departure from not only leadership but the game as a whole. This is nothing to do with my love for the community or the game itself. For a while, I have been struggling with mental and physical issues that came to a head during the break when I was admitted to the hospital for high blood pressure and signs of a stroke. I had been trying to get healthy by walking and eating better. However, I realized it was not enough and started to look at my life and the way I spent my time. I didn't want to give up you guys so I tried so many times to log on. But after starting a new workout routine I simply did not have the energy. Once I reach my goal, I would love to try and come back to play again with you guys. I apologize greatly if I have upset anyone. I truly loved helping everyone that I could. Many blessings, Rei of Hope Nicole

    Hello Everyone, I want this post to be straightforward so I'm going right to the point. Recently, I noticed there's a lack of NA/PAC static raid groups in our guild which opens a window for players to come together and fill up the gap. Therefore, I would like to step up and gather experienced players to join me and get consistent raid clears weekly. Those wing clears are suppose to start somewhere between 1:00 AM to 3:00 AM server time and last for 1:30 to 2:00 hours. I will quickly introduce myself for those who don't know me: Most people in TTS know me as Torac, which was my main character when I first joined TTS. A long time ago I used to help TTS teaching people dungeons and leading some of the world bosses. For quite a few time I used to be the guy filling up spots for people that couldn't show up for Merfoga's and Bright's group. I am super a chill guy and easy going person, I like to learn new stuff and try out different strategies for whatever game style I play. As much as I am a nice guy I also want to make sure this raid group works out so I expect you to be nice and respectful not only to me but to the whole group. So here's is the plan... Who I am looking for: -You must have knowledge about all bosses mechanic wise -You should preferentially be able to fill more than 1 role (i.e. dps and heal/dps and chrono/ you name it) -You must be familiar with the classes you play (there shouldn't be such a thing as I can tempest on Sabetha but I can't do canons) -You must be familiar with rotations for the classes you play I also want to point out that the focus here are the mechanics for each one of the bosses. The mechanics are more important than the dps you can put out (provided your dps is not ridiculously low). So if you feel like you are a good fit for this static group please write down: -a very brief description of your level of experience (no need to mention LI number) -classes you are able play -time that works better for you So that's it. I hope we can get this group going and get clears and also have fun together. Cheers, Torac

    I thought it was kinda neat how I captured the fireball being spat at my character by the Fire Hydra.... ... and how my character was like "pfff, it's hotter in the Fire Islands"

    Hello all raiders! We here at the Supernovas (name subject to change >.<) are still recruiting more members for getting our weekly raid boss kills. We are a veteran group that currently runs 2 hour raid sessions, three times a week, with a goal of eventually compressing it into two times a week. We are pretty experienced, sometimes getting 13/13 in a week, but I wish to be able to get a more solid core composition so that we wait around less often and spend more time actually going for the kills! So here's some things we are looking for in our recruits. The first thing is schedule and availability. Supernovas is currently running from 2PM UTC to 4PM UTC, every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. For those not very familiar with timezones, this is 10PM to 12 MN for those who live in West Australia and Southeast Asia, so we hope this is a good timeslot for those who happen to live in these countries. Please carefully assess whether or not this timeslot is convenient for you, as I wouldn't want people to burnout because they forced themselves to stay up too late or to compromise their daily routine too much just to accommodate a video game. The second thing is experience and flexibility. We have been killing multiple bosses for quite a while now, and while we don't mind teaching people about late-game bosses they may not have experience with yet, we do prefer raiders who have been in the raiding scene long enough to have killed a good number of bosses already (around 6-8 across all 4 wings is a good target), AND have at least looked up guides for bosses they don't have yet. Youtube has no shortage of such things. We are also in need of raiders who have experience in some critical raid roles such as Critical Roles: - Chronomancer (Tank or Secondary) - Condition PS Warrior - Magi Druid - Heal Rev for Deimos Niche Roles for Certain Bosses: - Healing Tempest - Condition Mesmer - Condition Necro If you can decently play any of those four critical roles, we are more likely to pick you to run with us in the future. The last thing is commitment. We want the majority of our members to be consistent raiders with a fairly predictable schedule and a strong sense of commitment to the times. Real life will ALWAYS come first, but we would really appreciate players who can readily give 2 hours of their time in a given night for raids for most nights. Commitment is not something that can be determined right away, so this is how it will work should you wish to run with us: 1. Every player who wishes to run with the Supernovas starts out as a filler. These are people who help fill the gaps in our raid composition. Those who can fill any of the four critical roles mentioned above will get first priority when filling the group, with DPS getting filled last. 2. Currently we are almost always in need of fillers while we search for new dedicated members. So if you come to the TTS Raid Channel on Teamspeak during our raid times, odds are there is a role you can fill. 3. Due to the near-term need for a stable group of critical roles (and those who can backup those critical roles), we may prioritize fillers who can play those classes even if they are currently filling in as DPS. 4. Those who fill for the Supernovas more often as time goes on have a greater chance of eventually become a core member. Consistent attendance is key, and while I don't expect 100% attendance even among core members, I certainly expect something much, much higher than say 50:50. 5. We strongly encourage fillers to show up in Teamspeak during our raid times regularly, even if they don't end up filling for the group for that day. Showing up lets us know that you are otherwise available, and that you can commit to our raiding times. This increases your chance of being picked to fill in the future, and of course to eventually become core. Of course we want fillers to be honest when they put their names in Teamspeak during our raid times. Please don't "say" you're available even though you actually aren't just because you want a better chance of getting picked next time. 6. If we notice that a filler fills or shows up enough times in a given span of time (more or less a month), they will be invited to become a core member, whose spot on the group is pretty much guaranteed. Do note that core members ideally play the same role (e.g. Chronotank or Condi PS) whenever we run, but role switching is possible during times of attendance shortages or experimentation. It's worth mentioning that there is nothing wrong with remaining a filler. Sometimes real life gets in the way, or maybe you feel that you don't want to raid as often as we do. That's fine, and you are still more than welcome to fill for us when such needs inevitably arise. Around 1-2 spots on the group will probably remain filler, so feel free to show up when you have the time to run with us! With that said, the main goal of this recruitment thread is to get more core members. So if you have what it takes to raid with us, and you think our SEA time is a perfect match for you, feel free to send me an in-game mail at "iPlayForFree.1524". I may not have the name "Spicca" for much longer, so please don't rely on that name anymore when mailing me. When you do mail me, please let me know what role you can fill and what experience level you have. You can also tell me if you wish to eventually become a core member or if you want to take it more casually as filler. To those who were left out during the first recruitment round, I may have missed your mails the first time, so feel free to send another mail my way if you are still interested in joining the group!

    Heya, Torac! I'll post my info on here. Also, are you on Slack? That would help a bunch with ready checks, link-sharing, tips, etc. Anyways... I've killed 12/13 so far (still gotta get that Deimos, but it's the one fight I have yet to learn - I would be willing to create a heal rev for hand kiting as well, but it's a role I'd learn from scratch); I've also had consistent 10/13 clears for some weeks. Classes I play: I can do all three support roles (PS war; Chrono - either tanking or not; Healing Druid). The chrono is the one I'll gear up with legendary gear. I'm inexperienced with tanking but it is a role I do want to learn more in-depth, and I do believe I've killed nearly every boss as the healer at least once. For DPS classes, I had set up two different Daredevil builds, power Tempest with a possibility for condi, a condi Ranger and a condi Reaper. I intend to keep my builds updated as time goes by. But of course, it'll take time to adjust once the new specs + the update qT meta comes out. The time mentioned is perfect for me nearly every day. Would like to start earlier on Thu & Fri, but I'm willing to compromise if the group needs to start at later times.

    My laptop of 7+ years struggled a bit with GW2, even with graphics settings at their lowest or off. So for my birthday I wanted a replacement. I originally considered a big, heavy gaming laptop like an Acer Predator 17 but when I saw a friend's thin and light Dell running GW2 with aplomb, then I knew that's the way I wanted to go when on the road. Dell XPS 15 (model 9560): i7-7700HQ Quad Core, NVIDIA 4GB GeForce GTX 1050, Killer 1535 Wireless 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi & BT 4.1, Windows 10 Pro. Then I upgraded the memory to 32GB using Kingston HyperX Impact 2400MHz DDR4 RAM Then I upgraded the drive to a Samsung 960 PRO (1TB PCIe NVMe drive). Not a task for the feint of heart! I'm pretty technical and it took several days to work through all the roadblocks and several times I thought I'd destroyed the machine. I'm no longer a fan of Acronis True Image, but Macrium Reflect saved the day and worked like a charm. Nobody makes a M.2 to USB enclosure for PCIe NVMe, so you cannot image to a drive upgrade like can be done with HDs & SSDs. So I got the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB external HD to hold & restore the drive images for the 2-step migration process. Dell Thunderbolt Dock for when at home, to give a one-cord solution for power, network, keyboard, mouse, etc. Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum wireless and wired gaming mouse Corsair K70 LUX RGB keyboard for when at home & docked Twelve South BookBook laptop case (designed for Macbook Pro Retina, but the dimensions are spacious enough for the XPS).
