    Still plenty of time to do get it tbh.

    I'm planning to run some small group roaming doing mostly camps/dollys/sentries to get related achievements.

    We also need to do some organized jumping in enemy BLs and EB.

    Managed to get both EB and BL jumping puzzles yesterday when nobody was around, so I'm just about confident with them now. Will happily pitch in with my mesmer . I'll hopefully be on later, but that depends on level of tiredness, length of queues and the strength of my internet. Too many variables!

    Here, let me help you cut down on your wobbly variables.

    Tiredness: Open the windows, wide. Enjoy a fresh autumn breeze and a pair of cold feet. Get a cup of coffee, hot. Drink said coffee.

    Queue length: Jump on a character that you are feeling confident with in PvE. Enter '/join Kablouie' in your chat window. Take the next portal to Orr, gimme a hand with those pesky map completions. Bring gathering tools.

    Internet connection stability: Do a google search for 'Cthulhu AND sacrificial offering AND Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough'. Follow the instructions provided. Enjoy.

    I only played for 30 minutes or so (trick or treaters at the door every few minutes), but WvW in the GH BL was brutal last night - any headway we made against any Underworld holdings was met with a very swift zerg. We needed to have multiple groups attacking things simultaneously to improve, I think.

    Are the numbers balanced in the BL maps? I mean, do UW have the same player cap that we do?

    Yes, the player caps are the same for all servers on a map.

    Our trouble this week is mainly that AM have been able to send *all* their forces our way, since UW have put up so little resistance. Coupled with the fact that they've been able to get a huge foothold overnight and spend all day assaulting our BL rather than defending theirs.

    Any match against one strong and one weak opponent tends to be very difficult.

    I can't believe there are people escorting dolyaks. Get a life and let me kill them already.

    Thanks to those who came along to WvW tonight. I tried my hand at commanding for a change and we had a decent run. Here's a brief AAR!

    We started off following RAMM who were leading what turned out to be an ill-fated attack on Hills. Gandara didn't reveal their defensive strength until we breached the inner gate - most of us wiped, but a few of us had managed to get into the Lord's room and down the lord before getting killed. Eventually FR entered the fray, and while RAMM kept pushing at the north inner gate again and again, they didn't get in. CROW capped hills a couple of times later in the evening, though.

    After a couple of attempts at Hills we broke off from RAMM and headed north. We pushed northwest bay and were surprised to make it to the Lords room -- FR, who owned the keep, were busy trying to keep Gandara out of it. Unfortunately they spotted us at the last minute before scuppering our plans. A cap of Briar, and detours to the jumping puzzle and the skritt cave ensued. Our final attempt of the night was another push at Bay. It coincided with Fort Ranik attacking Hills, so we had some time to make a quick attack. Again, we made it to the Lord's room without too much fuss. But the two or three FR that remained managed to hold the point - and warbanner their Lord - for long enough for the zerg from Hills to arrive. It was a good attempt, and we got the cap circle to 80%, but we couldn't quite cap it.

    Thanks again for coming along. We didn't have as much success as a normal Duke-led night, but hopefully it was still fun! I'll remember to bring more siege next time. Will have to think about how best to get people out of cap circles. I guess we want to bring all our CC and knockbacks for Lord's room fights.

    I'm loving this week's matchup - both opponents are reasonably strong and the head-on-head fights are quite balanced. It's a shame I was online only 3 times :/ Btw we did capture SM for a while this morning! Epic fight, as well as Anza battle that ensued right after.

    Good times
    On that note if anyone has "spare" mithril ore and/or elder logs please dump in deep cave as I am slowly upgrading all our alpha gear into superior/omega but it takes both along with the seige tokens I am buying with skill points Ta

    I really enjoyed last night. It had a good pace to the evening that really suited my mood at the time for some reason. Good crack, Sap.

    In regards to Monkey upgrading our golems: He's actually building this guys.

    Yeah last night was good fun and we were leading nicely for a while before the darkness rolled in. Hopefully we can have some more crazy dynamic open field scraps this week even if the largest server wins again.

    12/15 on the Season 1 meta now. Should get 100 supply camps capped in the next few days (12 or so to go) and hope to get the 15ish wvw levels I still need from ordinary play (8 hours of birthday booster left), but if I run short I can sub in non-WvW characters as you get the first 2 levels very quickly. Which leaves me one of 4 unattractive options to finish off:
    EB jumping puzzle - I'd rather gnaw my own leg off than do this solo, but as the heroic mesmer collective of RPS got me through Sapphire, Emerald and Ruby I have faith. With help the fastest option, without I stand no chance
    225 dolyaks - slow and steady, but deathly dull
    225 sentries - as above. Indeed if I go for dolyaks I'll probably get this around teh same time as I'll end up running around enemy BLs on my sneaky zerky thief
    500 supply worth or repairs - The other "fast" option, but I'm against this one on principle as to do it quickly involves stealing supply from keeps and wasting it on repairs.
    Hopefully we'll get an Obsidian Sanctum run done this weekish, else shout if you want to go dolly/camp/sentry capping

    I was going to suggest something along the lines of an RPS jumping puzzle run, to help us rebuild seige for the guild bank.
    perhaps post guild missions.

    I can donate all of mine I have loads on my Melons, remind me when I'm home I've never got around putting them in the guild, probably a good thing

    Xanadu - you can buy WvW ranks with laurels if you don't have another use for them, which is unlikely given the number of your alts )
    I am on 13/15 with 3 WvW ranks to get and 13 runes to cap. Should be done with it this week if I have enough time
