Gaiscioch Community Notes Issue 7, 2018


Cead Mile Failte!

It's that month again! Every year at this time the Gaiscioch princess comes home and Foghladha becomes a wee bit more scarce as he crams as much life into the short few weeks she’s here. So while I will be reducing my events a wee bit, fear not they will come back after her trip.

Gaiscioch Family Promotions:

I wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to a few members this month for accepting their next credo and stepping into a new role in our family.

Legends of the Family (Laoch)

Among the most devoted in the community are the Legends. They have devoted more than two years of their lives to playing along side the family and have shown their devotion and commitment to our families beliefs and best practices. They encourage the new, teach the learning and support the community. These are the most trusted advisors to the elder council and occasionally they will request feedback, ideas and perspectives to help guide the future of the community. Above all else, Legends are shining examples of what all Gaiscioch members should strive to be. This role can be obtained by both leaders and followers and is the pinnacle of ones Gaiscioch career.

Veteran Members (Curadh)

Veteran Members have proven their devotion to the family by participating in events and contributing to the family's success. They have been active more than 90 days and have continued to be contributing members to the family.

  » Granlaf   » TylerF

Official Members (Lorgaire)

Official Members have earned the rank of Lorgaire and have accepted the Mark of the Kindred credo. They have officially decided to become members of the family and start their journey to ascend the roles of the Gaiscioch Family.

Great Tyrian Adventure Season 5 Preparations

We're moving forward with our Great Tyrian Adventure plans for this October. Our first order of business is restocking the prize vault. We're looking for Yellow Weapon Skins, Ascended Insignias and Inscriptions, Exotic Weapons, Boxes of Exotic Armor, and of course Precursors or Legendaries that you’re willing to donate. We are also going to need 3 volunteers to help us create the targeted 3 legendaries for the prize pool as well as some volunteers to help create a few other rare weapon prizes.

We will hold our first meeting of the new season on August 4th at 2PM PT on Discord. Be sure to mark your calendars.

WILD Joins the Tuatha Alliance

We are proud to welcome our friends from Sea of Sorrows to Sanctum of Rall as they join the Tuatha Alliance. They are largely focused on WvW and match our friendly personality and outlook on gaming.

New Allies This Friday

This is the week where we get repaired with new allies. With the influx of guilds to Sanctum of Rall this should be a really interesting week to see where we end up. I seriously doubt we'll end up with Jade Quarry again so enjoy our time with them while you can.

Gaiscioch Brings the War to Tier 1 in July

Due to low attendance at our Tier 4 events and the massive attendance at our Tier 1 events we've decided to spend July in Tier 1. The vast majority of our members enjoy tier 1 a lot more than tier 4 and we only seem to grow when we have our tier 1 nights. We will do what we can to grow so that hopefully by fall we can have a solid core in Tier 4 even if it's once a month. Additionally we are looking for more event leaders who can keep our presence on the battlefield during the week.

Social Adventures News

Camelot Unchained Beta Kickoff

Beta is rapidly approaching and we will certainly have a group of us playing CU. Be sure to sign up for our Social Adventure at: and keep that page handy as we will organize the guild formation and servers from that section. We currently have 45 players signed up to play and will be looking at getting the ball rolling as fast as possible. CU will likely join our Siege War Livestream Lineup and I can forcast a weekly event being reserved for it. We will be the Tuatha faction for obvious reasons. Learn more about Beta 1 at:

Bless Online Off to a Rough But Improving Start

What started as a very rough takeoff has begun to normalize and stabilize. The instant rush of people who were expecting the eastern game localized for the west caused disconnection issues as well as other server integrity problems that NEOWIZ wasn't quite expecting. The general public largely overlooked the fact that the game was part of Steam's Early Access program which is essentially public beta testing and a good way to help up and coming developers fund the development of their titles. It was not a full game release and that upset quite a few people.

Bless Online claimed from the beginning that the western version would not be the same as the eastern version and is being re-developed as a game for western audiences. Many of the core features in the eastern version are missing and may or may not be included in the western release. The bottom line is the game is a work in progress and the official release is likely still a year out. That said there are a lot of cool areas to explore that have yet to be populated by npc's making for some great screenshot taking. If you’re curious as to some of the neat places I found check out my gallery on facebook.

Server Consolidation

It was announced last week that they will be merging all of the current temporary launch servers into 2 new servers now that things have stabilized. Depending on how the migration system works, we are targeting to migrate our Hieron characters to Hilan and our Union characters to Kairos.

Bless Online Sunday Events

For the month of July I will be taking my Bless Online event off the calendar to spend time with my daughter. However come August I'll be looking to get them going again in a more siege focused manor. I may change the date and time depending on how many people are still playing and are interested. I really am looking forward to the 75v75 warfare coming soon. I'm hoping to have a core group of 5-10 of us that can explore this side of the game come August. Keep an eye on the calendar for future events. Also feel free to schedule events for Bless Online. You too can lead events :D.

Bless Online Guild Membership / Alt Policy Expansion

For those of you splitting time between characters we have begun to allow a second character in the guild. We ask that you try to group up and do things together as much as possible to increase our guild level and allow us to involve more people. We will be rotating out dormant characters that have not played in more than 14 days.

Rebuild in Progress

The Gaiscioch Magazine site is undergoing renovations. I am hoping by the end of August we'll have our new 100% https enabled website ready to go. It's not going to be a fast process but hopefully soon we'll have a new format that streamlines the process and gives you guys a reason to look at it daily.
