Gaiscioch Community Notes Issue 10, 2017

Cead Mile Failte!

October is upon us and as we enter this spooktacular month we've got a few big things coming up for our community. The First of which is our final meetup of the year in Atlanta, GA celebrating 16 years of Gaiscioch. The second of which is the Great Tyrian Adventure in Guild Wars 2 which launches on October 19th. The third is our 7th Annual Extra Life Charity Event benefiting the Children's Miracle Network. I've provided all the details on these three events below. Be sure to invite your friends to join as well.

Lastly, as October is that last month before our birthday, It's time to mark that calendar for the annual state of the family event! This year we actually get to celebrate on our birthday! November 11th at 5PM PT will be our annual press conference and member Q&A. We will be going over where we have been, where we are going, and cover some of the numbers and achievements that have highlighted our 15th year. Look for details in our November Gaiscioch Family Notes or on

Guild Wars 2 News

Rejoining the Guild Wars 2 Community

With the launch of Path of Fire we've seen a tremendous surge of players returning to the fold. This seems like as good a time as any to go over how to get back in the community if you've been gone a while.

  1. Gaiscioch na Rall works on a Revolving Door approach
    Just because you get removed from the in game guild does not mean your not part of the guild. Our community is based off of Anyone who has a account is a member of our community. In game to combat the guild size cap we remove the player who has been offline the longest to send the next invite request. We keep the guild at 490 players at all times as if it caps at 500 all pending invites are discarded.

  2. To Get a Reinvite
    Go to, click "Join Chapter" next to Guild Wars 2 if it's available, then click "Request Reinvite". If you've never been in the Guild Wars 2 community you might need to add your (Unique account identifier for mail and social systems) so that we can send the invite.

  3. If you're still in Gaiscioch na Morrigan or Gaiscioch na Anu
    Simply look at the guild roster, sort by rank, find an online commander or elder and ask for a re-invite to Gaiscioch na Rall. If you're in one of the lobbies, no action is needed on the website.

Once a member of the community, always a member of the community. There is always room for more. Right now we're sitting at about a 25 day rotation in Gaiscioch na Rall and a 3 year rotation on Morrigan and Anu.

Path of Fire Launch

If you somehow miraculously missed it, Path of Fire has launched and oh boy was this one a grand slam. ArenaNet learned their lessons with Heart of Thorns and really changed how they do expansions. The new Path of Fire brings all new types of events to the game as well as bounty hunts that you and your friends can pick up in town and go track down epic creatures for rewards. There are also 5 mounts that will help you traverse the world in new ways. Guild Wars 2 looks at mounts in a unique way giving each of them unique abilities that allow you to pass certain obstacles which unlock new areas of the map. Think Legend of Zelda. This adds many layers to each zone where you have a lot of replayability as you can access areas you previously could not.

To give you an idea of how well it's doing. Last night we had almost 100 members in attendance for our new Guild Hall siege. Nightly, we've been averaging between 110 and 120 players online during primetime. Things are really hopping right now and if you're looking to get involved be sure to reconnect with us and share some adventures.

New Guild Hall: Windswept Haven

Assault on Windswept Haven was successful. We amassed nearly 100 Gaiscioch for an assault on the new Guild Hall. While some had to log off along the road to the new guild hall and others had to depart before we completed the fight our perseverance paid off and after several attempts and changing our approach we managed to pull it off and secure our new Desert Oasis.

Why the guild hall change? Lost Precipice was nice in a lot of convenient ways however it was very close quarters and many of our statues, trophies and memorials were impossible to set up in places people could actually enjoy them. Everything was so tight that nobody saw most of the map. Windswept Haven stretches out a little and has many places that allow for meeting areas, trophy rooms, and memorial locations. All of which are alongside something useful. This allows us to build these key areas in areas that players will be exposed to and not tucked away into some hidden corner.

While Windswept Haven may not be our final guild hall, it will serve as a great home until the next one appears. Hopefully, we’ll eventually have one in the forest lands or even in Cantha like our Guild Wars 1 guild hall.

To get to our guild hall press "G" then click on "Guild Hall" in the top right when you have "Gaiscioch na Rall" selected.

ESO Community Looking for Event Leaders

Over the past month we've had a few of our event leaders have to step down for a little while, in turn activity has seen a bit of a fall since the launch of Morrowind. We are actively looking for players who are curious to lead events for the community. Events are the heartbeat of any community and it is essential that we keep events on the calendar. If you would like to lead an event please contact me, Sir Henry or Verve and we can walk you through the process.  

Additionally, be sure to check out our event calendar and support our event leaders so that they continue to run their events. Nothing kills our event calendar like a lack of participants. Show your support and drop in for some of these great events.

Rift Adventures Wrapup

We're in the final stretch of our Rift Adventures livestream series and we have but a few more areas to cover.

  • Oct 2nd at 6:00PM PDT: Episode: 17: Rare Creature Hunting
  • Oct 16th at 6:00PM PDT: Episode: 19: Dungeons
  • Oct 23rd at 6:00PM PDT: Episode: 20: Open PvP on Seastone - Grand Finale! Featuring some "special" guests.

So what's next for our community? What would you guys like to do monday nights? Should we revisit some strongholds and hunt rifts? Take on those world bosses? Kill volan a few more times? 20-Man speedruns to get all the shinies? Let me know what you'd like to do and we'll do it! I'm going to have an abundance of keys to giveaway each week and we'll need something to do to give them all away :-). I would like to spend a week in that new zone exploring and killing all the bad things after this is all over with. I haven't really had the chance to get out there. I'm really hoping RIFT is working on something big for this fall as we need something big and new to give us a content platform for Telara Saga next year. If we can't draw the crowd, it won't be much of an epic event.

The Horizon Looks Great for Social Adventures

Social Adventures are recreational groups of Gaiscioch players who venture into other games for some fun times away from the primary chapters. They can earn social points for participating in activities together.

Last month we dropped the required participants to 2 players to receive 25% credit, 3 players for 50% credit and 4 players for 100% credit. We also extended the claiming window to 7 days. 

With the new setup there are several social adventures nearing launch time including:
