I’ve been in my guild <All Nuke Skull> on Anachronos for around 3 years. Well tomorrow it will be exactly 3 years. Happy Anniversary to meeeeeeeee!
It is only the 2nd guild my main (and the only one for all my alts on the server) have been in. The first guild I was in was ok, however the GM and his girlfriend were both mages, as am I, so the chances of me raiding were pretty slim, and my chances of actually getting phat lewtz even slimmer.
So when boyfriend at the time suggested I join his guild I applied and was invited. Pretty soon I was straight into ICC with them on Lich King 25 man, my first raid other than the Dalaran weekly raid quest and Vault of Archavon. Ah how I loved ICC, that place, that fight and that boss. The Lich King is still my all time favourite fight. I still get chills at his voice and the cinematic, and I still jump when we all die at the end, forgetting for a second that we haven’t actually wiped. Such a clever mechanic and design. No other fight comes close for me.
As I said I’ve been in my guild as a normal guildie for a while now. I’ve been a main raider, a second team raider, on the side-lines, and I’ve raid led once or twice. On the whole the people in my guild are a great bunch of people and we do have a right laugh smoetimes. Not sure they’d say the same for me though as I’m loud, often rude and can be out-spoken. But I have the good of the guild at heart and try to do what I believe is best for the guild as a whole, not just what’s best for my character.
Our guild is pretty quiet at the moment, as is the server, and because it is classed by Blizzard as medium population, we won’t be part of the realm connections/merges coming later on in the year. Which sucks. We were hoping for some fresh meat, new blood, moar peeps!!!!! What will happen I believe is that more people will move server, as has already happened with quite a lot of players. A dead, quiet realm doesn’t encourage people to log in and play if it feels like a single player game most of the time. And recruiting new members will be difficult/impossible with a quiet realm. So Anachronos will end up as a low population realm and will then get connected/merged. But, will the guilds and their members wait that long?
