Title: Azure Hood Gang Influence Points
Post by: Aviel on January 13, 2013, 01:32:18 PM
We have 500 points and can research something. I vote for Architecture because we eventually get a guild bank with it. There is also Politics (which I have no idea what it does), Art of War and Economy. We can research the 1st tier one of any of these. I am assuming we use up the influence points when we research something.

See http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Influence for details.

Other thoughts?

I can't figure out how the banners are used.  I can't tell if it's for a Guild Night of levelling or pvp, as opposed to "everyone in the guild gets one."

Without looking at the list I can tell you anything that's in the 50 pt range usually means it's a single use, usually for 24 hours but applies to the entire guild. Banners likewise I think are single use and will affect whoever is in the area where they are put down.

I still think we should go for Guild Bank

To paraphrase:

Yes, Ms Feynman, we knew you'd be interested.  We were wondering if anyone ELSE had an opinion.

Guild Bank is generally the most useful thing to go for first. :)

Okay, gbank it is!  Now researching Architecture Level I (or whatever the pre-req is).  It'll be awhile before we have enough influence to actually make a gbank, though.  :)

I noticed that I'd gotten a Tome of Influence, which is 1,000 influence.  So now we're working on Architecture Level II, woot!  Anyone else get one?  I don't remember where I got it -- it might've been from completing a find-all-POI-waypoint-quest goodie box.

I believe you get one as part of the game, I can't remember the various packages (basic, collector's etc) but I think everyone gets a tome with a new account now.

You also get one as part of your personal story, but I don't think you guys are high enough level yet, and sadly Falafals and I have already used all of ours.

Okay.  Maybe Avi and Gwy still have theirs.  :)

Guild stash is being built and will be done in 48 hours.  :)

We're starting to amass a bunch of guild points again.

I don't think a bigger guild stash is of much use, so I'm inclined to unlock Politics I and start working towards the guild armor and eventual weapon vendor.

Comments encouraged!  Or even votes of "sure, pick whatever sounds good" so I know you're abstaining.  :)  But since I haven't been playing all that long, I'm not sure what are the cool guild perks versus the not so useful ones.

My other guild is gigantic and I've had no part in picking guild perks (my days of wanting to lead, well, anything online are long over).  Guild armour and weapons vendors sound fine!  The stuff they sell is pretty expensive, though.

Howdy Glognar!  Guilds are cross-server, which is pretty keen.  Also, you can be in more than one at a time, also quite groovy.

Don't forget to represent!  Well, if you want AHG to get guild points.  (Shardy and Falafel are representin' some other guild, so it's not like you have to.  ;)  )

I think I'm the only active-and-representing player, so I'll probably transfer servers to join friends' guild.  If people start playing, let me know and I'll transfer gmaster.

Sorry we didn't represent much.  Since not very many people from here were playing at launch, we went ahead and joined a large, very active guild that we've grown rather attached to.  By the time some Cupcakes people came around, we'd already put down roots there.
