Dragonbrand: New? Returning? Casual? Let [WAY] be your home!

Guild recruitment post!

Just wanted to get one more out there before the free server transfers vanish. If you’re playing alone, but willing to transfer to Dragonbrand and you are a like-minded player, [WAY] wants to welcome you into the guild!

  • Need some help with your personal story missions?
  • Want to try out dungeons, but don’t want to play with folks who just want to speed run them?
  • Looking for helpful and experienced players to explore Tyria in a fun, mature and low-drama atmosphere?

If you answered “Yes!” to the above, Wayrift [WAY] of Dragonbrand may be the guild you’re looking for!

We’re a small (30-40 players) guild of mature players who strive for a fun and family-friendly atmosphere. We are actively recruiting like-minded players, no matter their level, experience or skill – just as long as they enjoy good clean company and like to have fun.

[WAY] was founded on the pre-release launch night and remains a close-knit group where everybody knows your name (as the song goes). We care about helping every member’s ability to progress in GW2… but we care even more about each member as a person!

We are mostly based in the US/North America (though we do have international players), and have players that represent time zones across the US.

What we offer:

  • Guild Website
  • Mumble Voice Chat (Optional)
  • Guild Treasure Trove
  • Weekend Guild-wide Bonuses (Influence, Magic Find, Experience)
  • Helpful Level 80 Explorers & Level 400 Crafters
  • Variety of play styles – PvX and WvW

What we believe:

  • Respect other members and their play styles.
  • Promote a safe, family-friendly atmosphere.
  • Strive for a low-drama environment.
  • Real life comes first. Most of us are adult players with a lot of other responsibilities to take care of. Full-time jobs, school, children, family and other such come before gaming, which means we understand sudden “GTG” moments, times away from the game, and respect when real life calls.
  • Above all, have fun! We don’t have time requirements or class requirements. Folks of all skill-types are welcome. We’re here to help and to make the game fun for all guildies!

To get in contact with us, sign up on our guild site, which also acts as an application. I’ll approve you on the site and send an invite as soon as I’m in world (usually afternoons and weekends). You can also contact me in game at Aywren.5438 if you have any questions. If I’m not online, drop me a mail and I’ll get back to you ASAP!

Take care and hope to see you in Tyria!

I realize I haven’t been posting much in the way of my own gameplay since GW2 has come out. I’ve been completely busy with just playing the game (though leveling more slowly than some folks), learning everything I can and running our guild [WAY] on Dragonbrand. Now that we have a few groups of people who are above level 30, we’ve been putting our minds to the dungeons, which, while more difficult, are also a great learning tool. 

Poor Nipp has been somewhat on the sideline — she’s still level 19 — in favor of my group character, a Warrior named Tai. He’s the short human in the center with blue armor here. He also just reached level 50 on finishing our first AC run. 

Props go out to the Wayrift crew for great teamwork and ability to keep it cool under fire. Our guild may be small and casual, but we can do mighty things! :) 

We are also still open to new members if you’re a mature, casual player who is looking for a home on Dragonbrand.

Good Start to Guild Wars 2

We got in almost at the stroke of midnight EST, much to my surprise. I snagged all the names that I wanted and our guildies made it to the Dragonbrand server before it started to show a Full status. Lots of full servers out there already, it seems. 

There’s some issues with grouping and transferring between areas, but we still had a lot of fun. I can’t wait to work on character design and getting HOM stuff for all my characters set up. :) So hard to believe this is the real thing! 

How was launch for you so far?

Note to [Run], [Oops] and [Way] officers responsible for organizing membership and servers


Please PM me sometime today at your convenience and let me know (again!) which servers you are planning to base on. I unhappily appear to have lost track of that critical information in the last couple of weeks, though I believe [RUN] is supposed to be on Sorrow’s Furnace and [Way] is planning to base off Dragonbrand. I’m going to be home-basing off Henge of Denravi myself with my original guild, [Duty], so I’m going to need the requested information for guesting purposes (when guesting actually goes live), and for temporary world swaps in the interim. Thank you!

Yep, we’re going to be on Dragonbrand! Anyone else who is interested in connecting with folks on Dragonbrand are welcome, too, even if just for guesting purposes! :) 



A little over 24 hours before the official launch of Guild Wars 2. We’re ALL excited. Many of us are going to get some extra sleep tonight so we can play as much as we want tomorrow night. It’s going to be a very excitable and fantastic day.

But what is your plan? Are you going to be there as soon as the servers open up? Or are you going to wait until all of the areas have calmed down? Are you going to focus on one character and level up as fast as you can? Or are you going to make a bunch of characters and sit back and soak it all in? Are you going to join a guild as soon as you log in? Or are you going solo?

What are YOU going to do?

Gonna be there on launch time, log in to Dragonbrand and roll my characters to save the names I want. Then I’m going to play through until I have enough money to create our guild, and set that up to start inviting friends (should only take about one heart to do this).

From there, I want to explore the HOM rewards and just work through the starting areas very slowly and completely. I guess I should get some sleep sometime in there, too. :)

Suggestions on which server to play on?


I doubt I’ll get much feedback since I rarely use my tumblr, but let’s give it a try anyway!

My guild and I were planning to play on Tarnished Coast, but now that I’ve looked at, it seems that Tarnished Coast is the most convoluted server in terms of guilds. Dragonbrand and Fort Aspenwood were our backups, but those filled up fairly quickly as well :|

I don’t mind joining an over-populated server, but I just want all of my guildies to be able to logon said server. That being said, my guild consists of less than 20 people.

Any suggestions on which servers to (at least) have a backup on? Or should we just cross our fingers and hope we don’t hit the dreaded “Server is full” denial/queue on Tarnished Coast?

Thanks in advance :]

It’s still hard to tell at this point. We moved to Dragonbrand hoping that it would be a lighter population at first, but now it seems to be contending right along side most of the other established servers. 

We’re still rolling Dragonbrand, though. It seems to have a healthy number of PvE and WvW interest. Here’s a server poll you might be interested in as well: 

You may have to vote before you can see the results, but it’s a helpful measure of possible population.

What Guild Wars 2 server is everyone playing on? ><; My tiny guild and I want to find a server we can call home ♥

My guild and I are gonna be rolling on Dragonbrand. I know a few other guilds are heading to other servers, though. 

I too (along with my small guild) will be rolling on Dragonbrand!

Woot! What’s your guild’s name/tag? Maybe we’ll see each other sometime! :)

We’re going to be [WAY].

[WAY] Dragonbrand Server

Now that the final list of servers has been announced, it’s confirmed that my personal guild [WAY] will be rolling on the Dragonbrand server, so I will be making my GW2 home there.

There’s a number of reasons for this, but most importantly, it’s a newer server, so we hope that it won’t fill up as quickly as more established servers. Guildies really don’t want to fight just to make it on the same server on launch day, especially since we’re not sure if there will be free server transfers or not. 

Plus, the name is just cool. We liked it the moment it was added to the list, and it fits the foundational theme of our guild. It’s a natural choice for us. 

That’s not to say that I won’t be guesting over to visit other servers, though. There’s a lot of fun folks on Tumblr and I really enjoy meeting all of you! I’m sure no matter where you call your home, GW2 will be just as fun! :)
