Recommended Posts

  • Now that you've read the rules and expectations do you agree to follow them?
  • Let's start with your preferred name...
  • Preferred personal pronoun?
  • May we ask your age?
  • What is your Arena Net Display Name? (user.1234)
    Blink Squish.7605
  • How did you hear about Reborn of Embers?
    Posted a message in Lion's Arch. 'Trash Lass' responded - "im not a recruiter for my guild but it pretty amazing", and sent me here. And here I am.
  • Our events are typically in the evening of the Eastern time zone. Are you available during these times? How often do you play each week?
    I'm MST, but later is probably better for me so it should be good. My play-time varies, I have a number adult-type commitments - more than 5 minutes, less than 20 hours. :)
  • What is your favorite game mode and what do you like most about it?
    I like a mix, but my variable schedule usually has me doing personal story / open world.
  • Are there any game modes you are interested in learning and what is holding you back?
    Perhaps dungeons / fractals, but I did do some guild missions quite awhile ago and really enjoyed them.
  • What classes do you play, which is your favorite and what do you like most about it?
    Necro. I have started almost all classes (still low level) and I now have my second necro on his way to 80. Power Reaper is a blast. I'm trying to get another class to "click", we'll see. Still haven't tried Revenant.
  • What are your favorite and least favorite things about a guild?
    [+] Fun times doing cool things. [-] Difficult people / too much pressure.
  • Pineapple, does it belong on pizza?
    What did that delicious, tangy fruit ever do to you?
  • Tell us a little about yourself. What do you enjoy outside of gaming.

    Husband. Father. Programmer.

    Receding hairline, but decent physique.

    I can lift heavy objects, build things out of wood and transform raw meat into savory sustenance.

    Besides programming and gaming, I spend most of my remaining time sleeping.


  • What other games do you play?
    Misc steam games usually.
  • Who’s your favorite all time video game character?
    Higgs. My mage from WoW, now retired. If I can stop being facetious for a moment, I'd say runner up is Doom Guy.

Hey There Blink,

Great news, your application for trial membership has been approved! You now begin the Spark Introductory Phase. In this post you will find important information about the community and the next steps on your journey to becoming a full member. The trial membership, or "Spark Phase" is an important part of our community. This process helps us determine if you will be a good fit for us, and helps you determine if this is the home you are looking for.


The Spark Phase FAQ!

Before you become a full member you will need to complete the following tasks. You have 4 weeks starting NOW! 


What do I need to do?

  1. Read the Rules and Expectations here.
  2. Sign the Member Agreement here.
  3. Join the GW2 guild in game by accepting the invite within 1 week of trial approval.
  4. Join us in Discord. Visit this post for discord information.
  5. Upload an avatar (profile pic) to your Discord account. This helps us recognize you on the in-game overlay during events. Please also change your Discord nickname on out server to match your forum name, so we know who you are.
  6. Participate in and post 6 activities to your app thread (Screenshots work best). Only 2 of these activities may be non-GW2 related.


Activities include:

  • Any activity in GW2 or RISE** with atleast 2 other guild members. Please list who you played with and include a screen shot if possible.
  • Attending scheduled GW2 guild events in game (see calendar of events here).
  • Uploading an avatar to your forum account and posting an introduction on the forums.


(Note: If you would like to be notified when a new event is posted, please sign up for one or more of our mention groups. You can join our discord notification groups by visiting the #notifications channel).


IMPORTANT: You must post on your application thread to let us know what you participated in, and who was with you. Screenshots are great! Help us help you by keeping us in the loop!


Please continue posting screenshots to help you on your trial of various things you did while in your trial! We would love to see what else interests you and whatcha did! ?


**Activity participation in games other than GW2 with at least 2 RISE members are subject to approval at the recruitment Team's discretion.


When will i finish?


During your Spark Phase, we will be monitoring your progress to gain insight about how well you are integrating into the community. At the 1 week point you will receive a PM from our recruitment team with an update on how you are doing! After a period of at least two weeks, the Phoenixes will vote on making you a full member.


If you have not fulfilled the above objectives, or we feel that you are not a good fit for the community by the four-week mark, your application will be declined.


Community Info!

There are two ranks of leadership in RISE, Phoenixes and Flames. The Phoenixes oversee every aspect of the community in our anchor game GW2 and our casual games. Flames are specialists that help out in different areas of the community.


Phoenix Leadership:


Ranks in the community include:

  • Phoenix - Round Table Leaders of RISE
  • Flame - Specialist in various areas of the community
  • Ember - Full member of RISE
  • Spark - Trial member of RISE
  • Friend - Ambassador from another guild
  • Ash - Applicant to RISE


For more information on these ranks check out our guild structure. To meet our leaders and find out more about their specific job check out our leadership roster.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact one of the Phoenixes or one of our Recruitment Flames:

@Cowboy, @Sana@ars, @CorpPhoenix


Once again, congratulations on becoming a Spark and welcome to the community!

Howdy and welcome, @Blink!


Thank you for applying, and I really enjoyed reading your application!  I definitely think we have fun times doing cool things.  I also think we don’t put pressure on folks, so I hope you’ll enjoy it here!  

I LOVE my power reaper.  It’s one of my mains and I use it for PvP and open world a lot!  

Anyway, thanks again for applying and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Howdy and thank you very much @Cowboy!


This guild seems to be a well-oiled fun/cool machine and I'm definitely looking forward to joining you folks in game.  I'm hoping to hit the Path of Fire train tonight (if I have the required mounts/WPs), so perhaps I'll see you then.


Take care!

Shots from the Peu Pain Train.  I had a hard time picking ... sorry for the spam. It was a great time, sorry I missed the beginning!

Had nice chat with Clay and Corp.  I'm adding the guild tour and orientation to my guild activities.  Hey, it counts!  😉

I managed to get a couple guild missions done (unfortunately I had to leave part way). I'll need to brush up on them, as I was the only one obviously clueless  😛.  Finally I jumped back in just in time to hit the beach.  You can tell which one is me by the awkward pose, unfashionable loincloth and a lot of body hair.  For some strange reason, everyone started leaving once I arrived. 😉

I did my very first fractal run T1-T4 with @Trashcan King!! It was fun, but it was a lot to take in.  Thankfully the team consisted of some competent players, so I'm pretty sure I was carried.  In any case it was fun, and I look forward to doing more in the future.  Thanks again TK!  (P.S. I forgot to take a screenshot, so here is a picture of the fractal portal - it counts! 😉 )

This isn't a guild activity, I just wanted to thank a few choya that showed up to help me with a HP in Verdant Brink. Thank you @CorpPhoenix , @Cowboy and @Sauko! I only captured one choya in the wild, the others were camera shy. Thanks again!

An impromptu strike mission... thanks for the invite!  I just logged in to check something, but got to take down some bad charr as well. Having done this one twice, I'm now seeing why there are some complaints. It lacks, shall we say, finesse - compared to the other strike missions.  In any case, it's always better with guildies.

I know am now an Ember, but I'm thinking I might keep recording certain events here.  Thanks @Peureki for a fun Lake Doric run! So. Much. Loot.  In the end I find myself surrounded by choya, for some reason I do not look amused.
