DarkPhoenix Application

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
  • Now that you've read the rules and expectations do you agree to follow them?
  • Let's start with your preferred name...
    Dan / Dark
  • Preferred personal pronoun?
  • May we ask your age?
  • What is your Arena Net Display Name? (user.1234)
  • How did you hear about Reborn of Embers?
    Yoori.8056 and ShiroMori.6209 are members of my other guild, and I ran into Peureki as one of the only other commanders in the Overflow Trading Company who runs Path of Fire content.
  • 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?
    Yes, probably 15-20 hours a week.
  • What is your favorite game mode and what do you like most about it?
    PvE is my favorite game mode, I have always enjoyed spreading knowledge and I tend to do that in GW2 by commanding meta events 🙂
  • Are there any game modes you are interested in learning and what is holding you back?
    I'd like to get more into World vs. World, I like the idea of it. Had some bad experiences previously. Also interested in learning Challenge Mote Fractals and Raids!
  • What classes do you play, which is your favorite and what do you like most about it?
    My primary classes are Condi Mirage and Power Holosmith, I thoroughly enjoy the complicated mechanics of each of these classes. Once I could handle them, I was able to figure out my own builds that I really enjoy playing, even if it's not super-meta.
  • What are your favorite and least favorite things about a guild?
    I like getting to know people, and running events with them! Least favorite thing about a guild is when drama threatens to overtake the experience of everyone in the group.
  • Pineapple, does it belong on pizza?
  • Tell us a little about yourself. What do you enjoy outside of gaming.

    I'm a pretty laid-back guy! I enjoy listening to music, reading, and playing games.  I'm also a first-degree black belt in American Karate, with training in various other disciplines as well.

    I even enjoy going to concerts, when there's not a worldwide pandemic going on >_>

  • What other games do you play?
    At the moment, I spend a lot of time in Civilization VI. I'm also a big fan of the Assassin's Creed and Deus Ex series.
  • Who’s your favorite all time video game character?
    I'm a big fan of the character development of Ezio Auditore, from Assassin's Creed. He had to change his whole life based on circumstances outside his control, but still made something significant of it.

Hey There DarkPhoenix,

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:

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