Tonight the Happy Fun Guyz reached a huge milestone by claiming Ghrond’s Sacristy Keep in Avelorn T3!Â It’s been our goal since the beginning to be an active part in the Realm vs. Realm of our server community and this was on the top of our list.Â Taking keeps in Warhammer Online is the bread and butter of gameplay.Â According to the information that we have (will be verified soon) it costs 144g/day for a T3 keep and 240g/day for a T4 keep.Â These costs have meant a lot of dedication from our members to donate and work towards building up guild funds and I’m really proud of how so many of our community have stepped up and donated willingly to the pot.
On top of claiming a keep, tonight we participated in a very well coordinated defense.Â When the announcement went out that a keep was under attack by order (automated spam) we were able to spread the word quickly across our Alliance Chat and began to mobilize our forces.Â Being part of an alliance is a fantastic thing.Â Our alliance is called ‘Axes of Evil’ and was formed with Executions at Dawn and Happy Fun Guyz.Â We’re currently in the process of bringing on other guilds who have expressed interest but can’t until after Mythic fixes a bug with the system.
During the call to arms we were able to mobilize about 24 people within 10 minutes to get to the keep and stop the enemy from taking down the main door.Â We pushed back Order and managed to reclaim all three battle objectives as well as route them a few times while they tried to regroup.Â During the defense we met some other great people and began forming the first bonds of realm pride.Â I felt it, I really did, for the first time tonight.Â Realm pride is strong in WAR and it’s only going to get better.
Finally, I wanted to share another awesome experience HFG had today.Â We were in a scenario (one guess which it was… *cough* Tor Anroc *cough*) and had a full HFG group in vent.Â Working together we were able to pull off a crazy win of 500-0 and I credit the entire win to how well our guildies and the rest of the realm-team worked together.Â Â We usually get stomped in TA but a little teamwork, strategy, communication, and effort went a long way.
Overall, it was an amazing day in WAR.Â Having good experiences like this keep me going.Â I’m level 27.5 and hope to be in T4 by the end of the weekend.Â I hope everyone else is enjoying it as much as I am!
