Recommended Posts

  • Now that you've read the rules and expectations do you agree to follow them?
    Yes!
  • Let's start with your preferred name...
    Umber
  • Preferred personal pronoun?
    She/her
  • May we ask your age?
    25

    Yes, I play 1-4 times a week depending on how the week goes
  • What is your favorite game mode and what do you like most about it?
    I've been doing a lot of Dungeons lately because I like the teamwork aspect and how easy it is to find parties
  • Are there any game modes you are interested in learning and what is holding you back?
    Raids and Strike Missions. It's super hard to find groups who are willing to take in inexperienced players.
  • What classes do you play, which is your favorite and what do you like most about it?
    Elementalist, Engineer, and Revenant. Elementalist is my favorite and main. I like magic, and I like setting things on fire! :)

    Favorite: Being part of something, organization, good leadership. Not fave: My last couple guilds abandoned GW2 for other games. Looking for something more consistent.

    I'm an artist and do commission work as a part time job! I also love animals and music. I listen to a lot of rock, metal, and industrial music (and sometimes synthwave).

  • What other games do you play?
    Not many admittedly, GW2 is my main thing. Sometimes I also play Minecraft, a small handful of console games, and some classic ROMs when I feel like it.
  • Who’s your favorite all time video game character?
    Gotta say Spyro. He was practically my hero growing up. I own (almost) every Spyro game, not counting Skylanders stuff.

Hey! Welcome to RISE Umber! 

 

It's so nice to see another dungeoneer as it's a less played content in the game ; u ; ~ If you're looking for a community to help you progress through Raids and Strikes look no further, the members and leaders in this Guild is amazingly insightful and welcoming towards all members who would like to participate! I got my first wing clears, strike missions, boss kill with these guys personally, and honestly it is super fun to play with everyone here! 🎉  I hope that you too will have loads of fun with us as I am!  ^  ^

Congratulations!

Hey There Umber,

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 our 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!

Yay! Yeah there's something about dungeons that are just super comforting to me. Not to mention I'm still trying to collect all the armor sets :3 That's super good to know, cause I really wanna do more raids and strike missions but I'm just so intimidated by them

Don't feel intimidated! It will be fun for sure! I still want to also collect all the dungeon armour for fashion reasons but procrastination is strong with me. xD

@Eldak Yeah I'm definitely feeling more encouraged to after playing pvp a couple times with the guild! Sorry for DCing mid game yesterday, my internet connection decided to go out at about the worst time ;;

 

Here's the only screen I got which was before the start, not sure if it technically counts as Event #4 since I didn't even finish a single game but here it is anyway! Also featuring @Outshined  and a few other good folks whose usernames I'm not sure of yet
