I've been playing GW2 for more than 4 years now, mostly doing PVE stuff alone or with pugs, though I have tried a few different guilds, looking for a good fit, and I hope that TTS will be the end of my searching. I have been hoping to find a guild that actively works toward making this game more fun to play, by incorporating group play and teaching. I think that many players wish to learn how to play more than one profession well, and/or how to maximize the effectiveness of their play on their main character. TTS seems to me to be one of the few guilds that cares about training players how to be more effective at many different parts of this huge GW2 gaming experience.
Even though I have over 6,000 hours of logged playing time on GW2, I know that I still have lots to learn, and that I could improve my play style and effectiveness, if I had a few mentors willing to teach me what they know. GW2 is the only computer game I play, and I still enjoy it a great deal, but know that I could enjoy it even more, playing with a group of people that I get to know over time, by playing group content together. There are still many parts of the HoT maps and events that I have not completed, but would like to. I haven't even tried a single RAID yet, but really want to do that too. I am open to the idea of becoming more active in WvW and starting out at the bottom of playing PvP, but would prefer to learn how to play those parts of the game better from experienced players, instead of just randomly learning by trial and error, over a longer period of time.
I won't drag this introduction out any longer (I have a tendency to ramble on too long sometimes), but I would appreciate any feedback from other TTS members, leaders, council members, or the "Keeper", either confirming that I have found the right guild, or telling me that I should keep looking elsewhere, because my expectations are not aligned with the goals of TTS. Here is a condensed list of what I want to do in GW2 in the future:
Raids - I have at least one, if not two, level 80 toons for every profession, ascended armor sets in light, medium & heavy armor weights, & at least one of each ascended weapon (6 legendary weapons I crafted), and I'm willing to craft more to get the right stats on my weapons and armors.
Fractals - currently at level 43 fractal rewards with about 90 to 95 agony resistance, but want to increase reward level, and agony resistance, so I can play tier 4 fractals
WvW - want to learn all the maps better, and the most common strategies to help win points. So far, I have only entered WvW to buy Gift of Battle for crafting Legendary weapons.
PvP - would really like to perfect my play style on multiple toon professions, to at least average capabilities, so I can be an asset to most teams, not a detriment. I have played almost zero PvP so far.
Guild Missions, Dungeons, Fractals, and any other repetitive content - would like to become proficient, so I can assist others in completing content successfully.
Sorry for such a long post. Looking forward to meeting other TTS members in game soon.
Lastly, Amiga is the name of a discontinued (fantastic) computer from the mid 1980's, which was my first computer. I've been using the AmigaDave nickname since the Internet was very young.
