    Joe (Not Joe)
  • 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?
    Got a referral from Bagu during a fractal run.
  • 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, most often on from 4PM-Late
  • What is your favorite game mode and what do you like most about it?
    PVE - I like limit testing and will often solo (or attempt) content designed for groups.
  • Are there any game modes you are interested in learning and what is holding you back?
    Raids - My current friends on GW are very casual, and have strayed far from tackling the more challenging content.
  • What classes do you play, which is your favorite and what do you like most about it?
    Ele/Mesmer - Complicated rotations, high risk/reward playstyles, and versatility in build & team composition.
  • What are your favorite and least favorite things about a guild?
    Favourite - The social aspect! Some of my life-long friends are people I've met from guilds across other games.
    Least favourite - Time commitment: long are the days I could raid-lead for hours on end.. Life gets busy!

    Yes, I was raised in a predominantly Italian neighborhood and have full consent to echo this fact.
  • Tell us a little about yourself. What do you enjoy outside of gaming.

    A hobby pianist- I taught myself growing up without lessons and it's something I continue to train myself on everyday. 

    I explore often- A little research on pockets/gems in the city and I'll hike/climb it.

    Photography- This goes with the hiking thing, I basically find cool stuff and take pictures of it so people can ask "where?". 


  • What other games do you play?
    League of Legends, Magic the Gathering, World of Warcraft (and every other MMO you can think of).
  • Who’s your favorite all time video game character?
    Probably Cloud, but Canach is a close second.

Hey Joe, thrilled to see you apply!


This guild taught me everything I know about raiding and most of the endgame content for that matter. We've also recently revamped our raid system to better guide members towards more challenging bosses for those that want to push their limits. Regardless of what side you end up on, I'm sure you won't have a problem learning anything from the awesome leadership we have here. 


Also, since we met in fractals, I know you must have some degree of enjoyment for them. If you're interested we also have awesome training and leadership for fractal CMs which feels very much in tune with the level of challenge you're seeking to find in raids.


Again, thanks for applying! I'm sure you'll make a great fit here!

Hey There Definitely Not Joe,

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.

Hi (not) Joe!! Welcome!! 😄 I'M SUPER STOKED TO GET YOU INTO RAIDS!! They're my favorite thing to do in the game right now, and I'm a pretty casual person myself. They're challenging but still fun to do in groups! make sure you check out the Calendar post for our next training raid on Friday! We host beginner raids every week, and there's not much requirement - pretty much the same expectations as anyone would have for going into fractals. Get your gear and your build and you're all set! If you'd like to join this week's make sure to RSVP and comment on the post so that we can get ya sorted!


Our organized fractals are on Thursdays, with t1-t3 training runs at 8pm EDT, then the t4/CM organized groups at 9pm EDT. There are also always tons of impromptu calls for fractals on the discord, so if you'd like to start doing some fractals with the guild, keep an eye out for the posts 😛
