Guild Wars, Everquest and a Birthday!

This week I've been trying to decide what I really want to play in Guild Wars. I have settled with two characters I've been playing around on. I've mostly been playing around with my new Ritualist and Ranger,  Factions and Prophecies characters. I'm still wanting to pick a Nightfall character out too. So far it's been pretty fun. I actually met some nice people in a guild, hearing I recently came back, someone helped me out with some money which was very kind. However the next day I was no longer in the guild which puzzled me. Since then I had another guild invite but they keep bugging me to sign up on their website or get a guild kick, which is lame if you randomly invite people. I'll see how it goes.

I have been thinking about leveling a character up first that I can do some farming with. In this game there are some great farming builds such as the 330 hp Ritualist and the 55hp monk. What is so interesting about this game is the wide range of builds available to many classes. I found a very good video that briefly explains some of the best farming builds. You can check it out here, if you're interested.

Everquest is still going well. We headed to MPG last night to stock up on some more AA's. I enjoy playing my Shaman quite a bit. We have a pretty solid group with our mercs added in, so it's quite fun. Most of the bases are covered as we have slows, heals, haste, buffs, puma proc for the melee snares and so on.

When I find myself growing tedious from the missions in Guild Wars it is relaxing to log into Everquest and Xp a bit. I don't see myself leaving this game for another anytime soon. It's just like an old shoe, comfy and fits just right. I ended up making a guild just to use the guild hall ports, haven't really had a chance to look for a new guild here. For now it works out fine though.

While I'd like to write more about it, but I have a birthday cake to go pick up for my birthday boy! He turns 14 today! Unfortunately one of his presents hasn't come in the mail yet- The seller sent it out a week after I purchased it. What a clown. He is still getting a nice birthday, a 'new' computer to tide him over until his PSP arrives and a few other things he will enjoy.

Have a great weekend!
