Aggro Me: Turning 30
Well, even though I did all those guild status calculations yesterday, it turns out I don't have to worry about writs for a long time.
Yes, my guild reached Level 30 this past weekend. First on server, I might add. It was a great feeling of accomplishment and we had an impromptu party in Qeynos Harbour with everyone displaying their Level 30 finery and titles. The formal wear you can buy is a really nice look, if a little racy on the female side. One of our lucky members (a gnome, no less) even managed to scrape together enough funds to come whizzing by on his brand new magic carpet. That thing moves very fast and looks quite cool.
It also unlocked a new raid, which I haven't done yet.
In the midst of the happy feelings, the critical commentator in me was a little disappointed in a few things. One, a server wide message would have been nice. Two, the title you can buy is exorbitantly expensive, at least in my book. I think it was 1.52 plat plus a boatload of status points. Couldn't that have been a freebie, at least for patrons? You don't have to buy the titles you receive for other accomplishments and this was really quite a bit of work. And okay, this is kind of a silly complaint, but what's up with the title Ritsar for my Freeport friends? I think it's a Russian word for knight but, seriously, it sounds like a brand of potato chips or snack crackers. "Try a Ritsar with cheese for a delicious treat!"Three, like I've said before, if level 30 unlocked a series of quests with a nice reward that would be a great touch. It would be even better if you got the quest directly from Antonia or Lucan. I mean, if you can't get to meet them after gaining the highest guild level possible, when can you?
Still, I'm happy we accomplished so much as a team and will have more free time now that we're not writ-running. Uh, wait a minute. Now that I have more free time, does that mean I have to start tradeskilling again? Err...writs anyone? Let's, uh, unlock the faction rewards. Yeah, that's the ticket.
