I have been playing Guild Wars since it came out,
all as a character 'Mangled Knee' (see knee for details).
To convince myself that I have not wasted an exorbitant amount of time, I
occasionally update this site with 'notable' in-game accomplishments.
One of my notable achievements is reaching Legendary Cartographer status
(plus 101/100 map exploration points in GW:EN). See my maps
section for some cartographical exploits.
2007-01-14: Elonian Grandmaster Cartographer, Kind of a Big Deal
Once titles were introduced to the game, I noticed that my OCD and natural
interest in maps had combined to give me significant progress towards the
mapping titles in Tyria and Cantha. Once I had finished all the primary missions,
both exploits recognized as the Protector of Tyria and Protector of Cantha titles,
with a bit more edge-walking and an eagle eye, I finished mapping what little
I had left on those continents. When Nightfall came out, I mapped with aplomb right from the get-go :)
Today I am 'Kind of a Big Deal' because I became an Elonian Grandmaster
I then had some fun with emotes :)
2007-06-02: Tyrian Elite Skill Hunter, People Know Me
Having completed Nightfall's primary missions and earning my sixth title,
Protector of Elona, a game update that recognized achievements across all
three continents had provided me with a surprise seventh title: Legendary
I then set to work maxxing out the Sunspear and Lightbringer titles with
the newly introduced hard mode to earn title eight: Legendary Spearmarshal,
and title nine: Holy Lightbringer. Holy Lightbringer is known to me as holy
grind, as I spent way too much time killing hard mode demons in an endless
By capping the last skill, 'Glyph of Renewal' from Nayl Klaw Tuthan on
Perdition rock, I earned title number ten, Tyrian Elite Skill Hunter.
That means that 'People Know Me', or something like that.
2007-07-15: Canthan Elite Skill Hunter
Off to Cantha to finish capping skills. The last cap was 'Defiant
Was Xinrae' from Bound Kaolai in the Tahnnakai Temple (Mission) to
finish out title number eleven, Canthan Elite Skill Hunter.
2007-10-22: Elonian Elite Skill Hunter, Legendary Skill Hunter
All these capture signets bankrupted me, but after running through Eye
of the North and having gold again, I set about finishing capping skills
in Elona. The last cap, 'Healer's Boon' from Josinq the Whisperer in
Resplendent Makuun finished out title number twelve: Elonian Elite Skill
Hunter. With all three continents capped, that means lucky title number
thirteen: Legendary Skill Hunter.
