More Titles

More Titles

Originally uploaded by FlipSide3.

Not long ago my main character in Guild Wars, Satine the Necromancer, had no titles... and I hadn't really even bothered with it. Then I noticed how close I was to getting the Protector of Tyria title, and I decided to give it a go. Now I'm all about the titles... well at least the ones I think are accomplish-able.

I have to say the Cartographer title has been the biggest pain so far. I wouldn't have even bothered if I hadn't come across a texture replacement utility that makes it easier to see what parts of the map haven't been explored yet. I'll move on to mapping the other two continents once I'm done capping elite skills.

I've got all the Elonian elites and am almost done with Prophesies. Next will come the elites from Factions, which I already have quite a few of... but the biggies (Assassin and Ritualist) have barely been touched. It is so much fun capping, because you get a feeling of accomplishment checking another item off the list.

Granted I'm fully aware that all my time spent on this game is like working in a factory that produces products that will never be sold. One day the game servers will be turned off and what will I have to show for the time lost. Still it serves as a nice distraction to throw my excess energy or frustrations at, which keeps me happy productive member of my family. Better I'm playing this game once everyone's asleep that getting into trouble somewhere, right?

Well with the new kid about to come into our world demanding feedings and diaper changes... the game is going on backseat duty. I bet I'll squeeze in some time though... probably when I should be taking a nap. Crazy time, here we come!

Awesome...I have title envy.

I need to carve out some time for GW. Maybe I'll get a KP for Father's Day.
