After covering human after human after human, I am glad to dedicate half of today’s blog post to my pocket sized engineer: Golemancer Nikko
Nikko was an apprentice until his master passed away just a while ago. His last words were “DON’T PRESS THAT BUTTON YOU F–“
Nikko is currently on the run, but he’s not sure why.
The latter half of this blog post is dedicated to the pyromaniac Ifreet Darkblade.
No story for him. I hated this guy for a long time because I couldn’t get the hang of elementalist. But I took it easy and ended up loving the class! Ifreet’s theme is supposed to be fire…
And with this I’m finally done with my character centric posts. Making these last 7 blogs has been a lot of fun since I managed to go through each character, and even play them a little bit.
I also happen to be a bit ahead on the daily pics deal. Because of this, posts are going back to a single screen shot per day unless I fall behind yet again. Or I might just do a weekly-7 pics post, depending on how things go in the world of Tyria.
Today’s blog post is dedicated to my warrior, Deon Ersengar
Playing as a warrior was really fun, specially because it’s the kind of mindless fun. Just hack and slash. I had a lot of trouble finding the right look for him for one simple reason.
I am a sucker for greatswords. If they can equip it, you can bet that all of my characters will use one. (And they do!) Why is this a problem? I simply couldn’t find a good gear color scheme to match the sword.
Maybe I should be satisfied with the current look, but I’m not. I could get rid of the skin but I refuse to do that.
Deon is among the few characters in my account with enough common sense to not go out shirtless to a battle. That must count for something!
Going melee is awesome, but having ranged options is always a good idea.
Today’s blog is dedicated to the one and only, and often neglected Simael Roh.
My mesmer is the character that has gone to the most drastic appearance changes. It’s ok, since he IS a mesmer. How does he REALLY look? Simael’s current look reminds me of certain Holliwood actor, so I like to think he IS an actor of sorts. Of course, I really need to use this guy more often.
So, it’s been nearly 2 months since I stopped posting. Way to keep up with my 1 pic a day goal! Truthfully, my GW2 gaming time was reduced to pretty much 0 during this time. It’s an odd phase I go through where I just lose complete interest in a game for a bit before giving myself completely to it again. Meanwhile I have been keeping myself entertained with being out of Puerto Rico for 10 days (and away from my beloved PC and its games) and dabbling a little bit into the magical world of Eorzea.
Eorzea, for thos that don’t know (I didn’ until I started the trial) is where Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn takes place. And for a month, Aster was busy there.
VERY, very busy.
Now that I burned your eyes a little bit (or more). Let me get back to Guild Wars 2. I still plan on doing the 365 pics before the end of the year. The following blogs will be multi pic posts featuring one of my 9 heroes. For the most part (or at least for one out of seven) I’ll try to actually take some descent pictures to make up for my neglect. And before you ask: yes, they are all better dressed than FF XIV Aster.
Today’s post features my first character ever: Kiram Raelg. This young Ranger, along with my account, is already over 1 year old! While older players are enjoying their cake bazookas, I’m just starting to earn my very own mini Queen Jennah.
My first character was actually an elementalist called Aster. That class proved too overwhelming for me, so I started creating random classes to see which one would fit me better, while I got used to moving around and attacking at the same time. And it turned out I didn’t have to worry about chasing monster as a ranged character, while having a pet tanking for me!
As I made more characters, i tried to make some kind of story that connected them all somehow (one of the geeky things I like to do, even if I don’t roleplay) and he ended up being a street rat that was received help from a baker’s son. As they grew up they became closer friends and fell in love until Kiram was kidnapped by mysterious reasons. He is eventually rescued, but before returning home, he decides to repay the favor by assisting his rescuer as he explored the world.
As I made more and more characters, poor Kiram was sadly neglected (not before getting 100% map completion with him!) so story wise, I decided he just never returned home, falling more in love with traveling around the world..
Anyway, all of it is about to change because the recent changes to rangers sound to amazing to not start using him again!
There is something that I must admit: While I am a fan of classic RPG’s and the fantasy setting, I always liked those characters that broke the norm and used guns instead. And while Final Fantasy 7 had to gun users, all my attention went to the mysterious Vincent Valentine. Maybe it was because his slept in a coffin. Maybe it was the cape. Or maybe it had to do with his claw. All I know is that Vincent Valentine has remained as my favorite Final Fantasy character EVER. He tend to be my avatar whenever I go online, and while I do give him a break once in a while, I end up back with him down the road. So… it’s only logical for me to give him the spotlight. Here’s a quick glance at Vinnie V’s life.
This quick glance, however, is riddled with spoilers, if you were wondering.
This is hopefully the first of a series of blogs where I would feature a video game character that has caught my attention in some way. I can tell you from now that the list will have a lot of unexpected entries (unless you know me well enough!) Most of them are simply favorites of mine, or I simply found their back story interesting, or curious to talk about for a while. Also, these might contain spoilers. So read at your own discretion.
