|Hi there! I'm a university student from Finland, and I play PvE and a bit of WvW on the Ring of Fire server. I never played the original Guild Wars*, but I got a free beta key to GW2 BWE3 and was instantly hooked. I was a somewhat active player from the early launch to Halloween and again from Wintersday to around late February, after which I took a hiatus that lasted for multiple months. As a result, I wasn't present to play the Lost Shores and the majority of content between Flame and Frost and Sky Pirates of Tyria. I fully returned sometime during Bazaar of the Four Winds and, probably in my frustration of Scarlet Briar plastered all over the Living Story, went on a second hiatus shortly after Tower of Nightmares debuted, missing yet another batch of releases and being away all the way until the beginning of Season 2.
In October 2014, I joined the guild Furious Rising. Regrettably, FR lost its most important member in the spring of 2015 and, despite the efforts of the other leader-ranked member who rarely interacted with the guild as I saw it, fell into an indefinite coma. Thus I'm representing the 5-man guild consisting of my IRL friends, Citation Needed, once more. I also prepurchased Heart of Thorns and will try to jump into it as soon as it lands, school work and the timing of my new PC's arrival notwithstanding.
I tend to play at my own pace, not rushing to finish things or trying to be the very best. I'll try to fix mistakes I come across in the wiki even though I'm not much of a writer. If you need to contact me, either posting on my talk page or whispering/mailing in-game is equally fine, assuming I'm online and not on another hiatus.
Oh, and I host my screenshots (over 1,900 and counting) here. I have under development a more thorough site that should eventually cover everything on this page as well, partially via the magic that is the API, but for now it isn't yet ready to go gold.

Evelynn is currently sitting on the name and will be remade into a Revenant in Heart of Thorns. I also have a tenth character slot, which theoretically should be a human male, the only race/gender combo I'm missing, but that doesn't feel like a very interesting combination, so who knows what'll happen with that one. From HoT, I gained two extra ones. I'll need to get into making some alts later :p
Also, I had planned to update the template here because it's outdated and has some problems. However, the under work dedicated site might take over that plan instead.
Living story achievement history
I finished my long time goal of a legendary weapon by finally building enough confidence, pugging a few runs of CoE, and getting my Meteorlogicus done on October 19, 2015.
I've began to work on the ascended crafting next by starting work on getting all crafting disciplines to 500. So far, Huntsman and Tailor are there and Armorsmithing is slowly rising. I also have a small stock of Damask, Spiritwood, Elonian Leather, and Deldrimor Steel ready, though certainly not enough for a whole set of armor (weapon could be a different thing). I'll also try to do the missing Living Story season 2 achievements at some point so that I can get the luminescent armor. Would probably also be worth it to go through the basic armor/weapon sets from tier 1-5 crafting some day to score some easy points towards Fashion Collector, I guess.
Gem store history
I've purchased a fair amount of character slots, bank tabs and collection expanders with the gems I've had. I also have a full set of endless gathering tools: Watchwork Mining Pick, Chop-It-All Logging Axe, and Fused Molten Sickle – I tend to keep them on Kuang Steak most of the time, but occasionally I swap them on some other character if I play on that one for a longer period. On top of those, I've bought the Noble Count Outfit and Gifts Mail Delivery. Some of the gems came from in-game gold, mostly on the very early days because the prices are absolutely bonkers these days, some from gem cards I've been gifted, and some from me spending my own money on them.
