Gaiscioch Community Notes Issue 5, 2019

Gaiscioch

Cead Mile Failte!

Sprinter is here! Not quite ready to let go of winter but not ready to dive into spring. We've had snow and sunshine this past month in one of the oddest springs in recent memory.

In the gaming universe we've also had some interesting developments. Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online are still going on strong while Return of Reckoning has finally fallen into a slumber. We've launched some new adventures in Lord of the Rings Online, The Division 2 on both PC and PS4 and Conqueror's Blade nears Open Beta. Now is a great time to get involved and explore some new worlds. Let's break down some of this month’s hot topics.

A Few Website Upgrades in Progress

I'm sure a few of you know we have our own Website over at Gaiscioch.com or for those who can't spell gud, head over to gsch.info. Some of you make use of it every day while others may have only used it to sign up to the community. There may even be the rare member who has never seen it. Well, let me be the first to encourage you to take a peek once again and see some of the changes coming to our lovely website.

Recent Updates:

Upcoming Changes:

  • Easy one-click signup to RSVP for events from event listing.
  • Social Adventure Improvements Continue! Making it simple to join or leave an adventure from the adventure page and will be making it more obvious that you need to set your in game name with an easy change feature.

There are lots of improvements on their way including the mobile friendly leadership system. Be sure to check back regularly to see more improvements.

Warhammer Online
Return of Reckoning Going Hobbyist Mode

We had a great run with some fun times and epic memories. We will continue to leave the guild open for those that wish to continue to play. Over the past few months it has become harder and harder to keep attendance up and after 3 weeks of having less than 4 people at our events we decided to pull the plug on the event series.  

We thank everyone who came out to play with us in Warhammer and encourage you all to do what you need to do to keep your enjoyment in game. Remember that we are an out of game community first, which means all your progress and investment in Warhammer carries over to whichever game you play next with us. You can continue to claim activities in Warhammer and use the marketplace if you choose. The guild tag above your head does not matter. We only care about the smile on your face.

Join us this Saturday May 4th for the Spring Gaiscioch Community Summit

It's that time again! We're hosting another Gaiscioch Community Summit this Saturday at 5PM PT. Come for your chance to win a Gaiscioch Patch and to learn about our community. We will cover several topics such as an update on new games of interest, chapter health, and cover several of our newest adventures that have spawned up. Don't miss it!

Inside the Family

Gaiscioch Family Promotions:

I wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to a few members this month for accepting their next credo and stepping into a new role in our family.

Guardians (Seaimpín)

The Gaiscioch Family Guardians are an advanced part of the Veteran Members group and serve as the front line of our family. They help newer members learn about the family, our website, and our belief system. They occasionally will need to help get conversations back on track, or report misdoing's to the family elders. They act as advisors, guidance providers, and overall protectors of the family name. By this time a member should be involved in the family for more than 6 months and has been an active attendee in family events. For those who prefer fellowship over leadership this is the last stop on the family tree. Members must prove their leadership ability to progress to the Leadership ranks through the accumulation of both Valor Points (Earned through leading events.) as well as earning Tokens of Valor from lower ranked members of the family.

  » Maxina

Veteran Members (Curadh)

Veteran Members have proven their devotion to the family by participating in events and contributing to the family's success. They have been active more than 90 days and have continued to be contributing members to the family.

  » Braelith   » Brinon   » Jdemon   » Lynnanine   » SpunkyWolf   » Tiecyrian

Official Members (Lorgaire)

Official Members have earned the rank of Lorgaire and have accepted the Mark of the Kindred credo. They have officially decided to become members of the family and start their journey to ascend the roles of the Gaiscioch Family.

Guild Wars 2

Sanctum of Rall Joins Yaks Bend for the Next 8 Weeks

The new server matchup is out and we're linked with Yaks Bend. The past 8 weeks was pretty rough and I feel bad for any native Fort Aspenwood players that have to endure the constant trolling and fake calls on a permanent basis. I really don't know how they place so highly with a community hell bent on sabotaging itself. Fortunately for us, we only had to deal with it for 8 weeks. Now we get a new set of allies to head into battle with.

Massive Balance Patch Hits Guild Wars 2

If you've played GW2 over the past 7 years you've seen these a lot. New patches introduce crazy overpowered builds then a sweeping balance patch comes out to regulate them. This patch changed some of the core functionality of how skills work and interact with each other. I can not encourage you enough to read over these patch notes carefully to understand how your class most likely changed and what it means to group composition.

Conqueror's Blade Heads to Final CBT

This month we will see the final CBT before heading to Open Beta. During the Open Beta stage there should be fewer wipes and hopefully we will have the full game enabled all at the same time. During the CBT core systems were toggled on or off to focus players down a singular path to help QA that system. Once we have the full experience, we will be throwing some weekly events on the calendar and head off into battle. It is very likely that we will see OBT this month, if not early next month. So sharpen those blades and get ready to storm the castle!

Gaiscioch Invades the Lord of the Rings Online

So I asked "Hey guys, who wants to come play Lord of the Rings Online with me?" Everyone apparently. Our Kinship has exploded like Mt. Doom and people are flocking to join the community in our latest adventure. In just a few days we went from 8 to 50 and it doesn't seem to be slowing down soon.

The original concept was to grab a group of people who want to explore LOTRO before the new Middle-Earth Online enters the scene in 2021/2022. We have weekly, large events planned Friday nights at 6PM PT and welcome all to get involved.

We have room for 1,000 currently. If it keeps growing in popularity I will start looking into making us a few mods. Who knows if we get enough interested we could be looking at a new chapter which can segway into Middle-Earth Online.

Join us May 19th at 11AM PT for Episode 100 of the Streams of Epic Adventure in Lord of the Rings Online.

Gaiscioch and Harbingers of Light give the Black Tusks a run for their money in Division 2

In a joint effort Gaiscioch and HoL have launched into Division 2 on both the PlayStation 4 and PC. If you’re playing on the PC version, hit up Pookha for an invite to Harbingers of Light. If you’re playing on PlayStation 4, connect with Foghladha for an invite to Gaiscioch on PS4. Both groups are actively storming strongholds and Dark Zones, and have plenty of loot to acquire and share.
