Rebuilding Lions Arch Event Ideas In Guild Wars 2

Rebuild Lions Arch

It is time for us to rebuild our fallen city. Join the captains council in rebuilding lions arch. Donate resources, manpower and even defend stock piles from opportunistic thieves.

Council commendations

With the previous success of rebuilding the lighthouse after the Karka invasion, the captains council has reestablished council commendations as compensation for various donations of resources for the effort of rebuilding lions arch. These commendations can be exchanged for old and new rewards.

Manpower Needed

Although stock piles of resources are needed to rebuild, refining those stock piles into proper building supplies is a massive undertaking when you are rebuilding a whole city. The captains council needs you to help refine materials, logs into planks, planks into boards, metals into ingots, ingots into nails and tools, even cloth needs to be dyed and cut.

Defending stock piles

With such large stockpile of supplies being made for the recreation of the city, opportunistic thieves are trying to take a cut, protect our resources or lions arch may never be rebuilt.

The wall of recognition

The captains council is commissioning the creation of a wall of recognition, the names of the top 25 singular donator’s and top 25 guild donator’s. These people will be forever memorialized on this wall for future generations to pay homage to.

Choose your design

After combing through hundreds of applicants the captains council has chosen the top three applicants to design the new lions arch. When donating resources, helping refine those resources or defending stock piles you will be rewarded with chits (tickets) to cast your vote for the lions arch design you want.

The more the better

Depending on how many resources are donated certain parts of lions arch will be upgraded, upon reaching certain levels of resources small things such as memorials to previous events taking place in lions arch will be built, at higher levels a stadium will be built for the return of Moa racing to lions arch. At ludicrous levels (millions of resources) excess resources will be sold off to the Arcane Council for a complete redesign of the local way-point system to allow greater efficiency of travel around lions arch.

Guild Wars 2 WvW Guild Raids

As a member of a guild that does both private AND public raids, you get different things from both.

Private raids give you a clean environment to work on improving as a group: I firmly believe all training should be done in a private untagged raid. That’s not an insult to people outside the guild or their personal skill. You can’t see how your group performs until you put in a vacuum. You will never know if you’re being carried by numbers over skill until you can get a definite count on what you have. You also can’t hold members individually responsible until you can see what specifically they’re doing. For many people in WvW, having fun, tough fights IS the endgame. You simply don’t get that when the playing field is uneven, so you try to limit yourself to get it.

Conversely, public raids are fun. You can be more laid back. You can get to know people on your server outside of your little bubble. You get more willing scouts and better wxp. You help your server score PPT, which can be another fun game.

Both styles have their advantages and disadvantages and people tend to prefer one or the other for different reasons. Those people can and should work together. Part of that, however, is to have reasonable expectations and effective communication. If you see a fighting guild on the map and your t3 Garri is being challenged, send them a nice whisper asking to help out.

But keep expectations in line: If they’re fighting another guild at the time, then you are intruding on their enjoyment and they may or may not come. If it’s a close match, talk to them afterwards and ask them to please be more mindful in the future. If it’s not a close match: Save your anger for a time when it actually matters. I’ve been in the position of doing training on a Weds night on a non-push week when we’re 50k ahead – When someone PMed me about saving a keep in a map I wasn’t on when I was in the middle of a fight, I can’t tell you how little of a flying kitten I gave. Furthermore, that training makes us better fighters so that when matches are close and it matters, you have people with the skill to fight back.
