I am a lifetime gamer born, raised and currently living in New Zealand.
I am primarily a PC gamer but I also have an Xbox 360.
This is my wiki signature: Bluestone
My primary goal on the GW2 wiki is to provide information in a way that is logical and easy to follow from the perspective of a player (the target audience).
Guild Wars & Me
- Blackgate is my homeworld.
- These are the guilds I am a member of:
| The Dark Hunters [TDH]
|| for general PvE and dungeons primarily during peak server hours.
| The District Nudists [TDN]
|| (Sorrows Furnace)
|| to keep in touch with old friends from GW1.
I played vanilla GW1 but never moved on to the expansions, I can't remember the specifics but I think it was due to my financial situation at the time.
I had GW2 pre-purchased for me as a gift and it may be the best MMO I have ever played. The first game claiming to be innovative that actually delivers.
I was known as Jacan in GW1 which is now the name of my son. I was a part of The District Nudists [Nude] guild primarily using my Monk/Mesmer named Brother Jacan, my other characters followed a similar naming theme such as Warmaster Jacan etc.
My playstyle is PvX, meaning I participate in and enjoy all aspects of the game including sPvP, WvWvW, PvE, Dungeons, Crafting and Exploration.
I do get to spend quite a lot of time playing but I still consider myself a casual gamer because of my attitude and views regarding character progression.
Mediawiki & Me
Mediawiki (the wiki software used by GW2 wiki) is my favourite wiki software.
I have run private wikis using Mediawiki in the past, some for guilds and some for my personal use (locally hosted).
Just prior to GW2 I was playing Salem (an indie sandbox survival MMO from the creators of Haven and Hearth) and was a volunteer administrator on the Salem wiki until I stepped down to play GW2.
I am comfortable with mediawiki syntax and I hope to contribute in a significant way to the GW2 wiki.
GW2 Wiki Pages
Wiki Task List
- Familiarise myself with the wiki style/formatting so that I can begin contributing and cleaning up pages.
- Working through Weaponsmith adding missing pages and icons. Will probably move on to expand component pages after this.
