Sometime during the first week of past January, I heard of Guild Wars 2 Project 365 and decided to be part of it. I was feeling a bit concerned about it because I was sure I wouldn’t make it all the way to the end. And in a way I didn’t. There were long periods of time where I didn’t post a single screenshot (and the idea was to attempt to post one every day) but I decided to cut myself some slack and just post bunches of them whenever possible.
This last 9 screenshots mark the end of the 365 pictures.
Doing this has been a lot of fun, since it made me retake this old blog that was just gathering dust and give it a little life. I just hope I can still keep it alive with more content.
Anyway! For this post, I wanted to make a completely made up on the spot recap of each of my 9 alter egos. Here it goes:

It’s been a long time since I dedicated some time to level up a character in Guild Wars 2. I had an extra slot available for a while, and I decided to put it to good use, getting my first ever female character to level 80. I had made other female characters before, but they rarely hold my interest long enough to keep up with them.
Meet Peach Sedai
I am a huge fan of the Wheel of Time series, and their Aes Sedai. Aes Sedai means “Servant to All” in the Old Tongue. To put it simply, it’s a group of people capable of using magic. I have always been fond of Princess Peach so I wanted to see if I could make a mix of both and end with a pretty mage in pink. And this is the result.
The mask, reminded me of the Orlesian masks used in Dragon Age. And hey! Vivienne is an orlesian mage with a similar mask! That’s inspiration of three different sources; enough to make anyone have an identity crisis.
Although she seems pretty pleased. I was torn between dressing her up as closely as the actual peach, or follow my GW2 men’s tradition of being half naked. I even considered having her use a dragon helmet and be as intimidating as a pink dragon warrior can be. In the end, I went for a bit of both. (I was lucky to have enough tokens to get that skirt)
I also had enough tokens to grab some mistforged hero weapons.
Peach Sedai is not my first mesmer. Curiously enough, my first mesmer was made as a sort of joke character that I ended up liking. I’m hoping I can focus this one’s attention into jumping puzzles and maybe some WvW or PvP
By the way, The PvP lobby is also looking pretty festive from afar!. And yes, that is a Now princess doll following Peach Sedai.
Now that I’m done leveling her, I feel at a loss. I really like leveling up characters.
Since I REALLY Want to complete this challenge, and I have no idea what else to post for the remaining pictures, I bring you, shirtless screenshots of several adventurers. I’m just 4 characters short of completing a calendar.
Sexy shirtless guardian says hi.
Sexy shirtless ranger is being all mysterious with that mask.
Sexy shirtless necromancer is about to be consumed by darkness.
Sexy shirtless mesmer just became 3 times more sexy and.. uhh… shirtless.
Another sexy shirtless guardian, this one underwater.
Sexy shirtless warrior is also pantless. I don’t know why.
I don’t know what passes as a sexy asura, but I can assure this one is at least 100% shirtless. Bonus points for carrot boxers.
Sexy shirtless charr is just chilling in Ascalon’s ruins.
There. Hopefully I didn’t scar anyone.
One of my favorite areas from the Wintersday event is the Tixx’s diorama. This map is used for the Infinirarium and Toypocalypse instances.
It’s a tiny city!
Most of the buildings in the diorama can be smashed by any attack. Here Aster is ignoring the skritts running around to take a nap.
Maybe if he stays behind this building…
Don’t worry fellows, he is using underwear.
This is a shot I just really like for some reason.
The clouds are the most realistic of all.
Tixx’s infinarium seems pacific at first glance, but there are lots of events involving malfuctioning toys. Toypocalypse brings this to a different level, and you need to protect doylaks from being killed by placing fighting snowmen, catapults and ballistas. Kind of like a Tower Defense game.
In both instances, you need to fight Toxx.
The year is almost over and my lack of Guild Wars 2 activity has gotten me once again behind on Guild Wars 2 Project 365. I might not have been able to post one picture a day, but I WILL see this through one way or another!
Wintersday events are taking place in Divinity’s Reach this time
Aedan can be seen tryong to protect his beautiful face from the harsh coldness of snowballs.
The Wintersday events are pretty much the same as last year. I have a love-hate relationship with the the choir event.
Aedan wanted to say hi, but was photobombed my a snowman.
Aedan wanted to say hi again, but was photobombed by a festive golem.
Aster wanted to say hi once again, but was photobombed by a grawl being photobombed by a random person.
Here, much better.
I can see my house from here!
Aedan and Sassarai just finished destroying a whole diorama. Yes, that is a wand a and a bell. Don’t judge me.
For a while, I was trying to get a decent combination of festive colors. This is just one of those attempts while waiting to grow back up to my normal size.
after lots of green, red and white combinations, I settled for this one. Does it look festive enough?
Have I mentioned I’ve been very busy?
For the past weeks I have managed to sneak in a bit of Guild Wars 2 into my life. I have been taking screenshots here and there, but I haven’t had the chance update my poor, neglected blog.
So here I am today, dumping all of it an once, and nearly catching up with the pics quota.
WARNING: Some of the screenshots shows spoilers from the Season 2 chapter: Echoes of the past

I am alive.
Life has found different ways to keep me busy, with a a challenging new job. Nintendo is also primarily at fault for putting in my way way Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros for 3DS. The lack of new pve content in Guild Wars 2, hasn’t helped much either. I have managed to slowly get back into GW2 and doing the Halloween content, so I’m ready and pumped to see the new content this Tuesday.
This is the spot were Malchor the sculptor jumped from and drowned. He couldn’t bear the thought of not seeing Dwayna again after she and the other human gods left mandkind.
It’s a pretty long fall
