am I the only 1 who unable to login atm?
Hey Guys...just wanted to let everyone know I'm back! Took a long break from the game and just subscribed again. Started allover though so will be building up a new character from the ground. It's good to be back!
Congratz to BBQstarter for winning last week's 5000 Gold from the Puzzle. This week's puzzle is sponsered by @Applinator who complained about the puzzle last week. You all suffer because of him. :)
The Word Scramble remains unsolved. The prize for this puzzle is now 2000 Gold to whoever solves it!
Hi, my game name is the lame General_Konsent. Rl name is Steve (aka Grumpy, Oldboy, Bozo). Currently living in Sydney by choice! Ex Sethafrican. I both groom and love/like dogs, a happy co-incidence? At 56 I feel positively ancient, probably explains the slow reaction time in PVP although I prefer to blame lag. I have 6 lvl 90's in WoW and used to quite enjoy PVP'ing there. I haven't played WoW since October 2013 as I had gotten horribly bored with the whole game. Quite happy with my new home in ESO and looking forward to being useful in PVP when I finally get my NB archer Rhannon Tinnor up to VR12 - currently at VR1.
Hey all, My name is Alex, Just joined the guild and then went straight on my 1st wedding anniversary trip away! Have been away from ESO for a few weeks or so but should be getting back on tonight and accepting guild invite! Been MMOing on and off since EQ1 launched in 99, looking forward to running lots of pve content with you guys and peeling some scalps in pvp. Run a music shop in Sydney if anyone wants stuff for cheap PM me. DJ'd hard trance for a few years in and around Sydney, Big MMA fan looking forward to December / January for Anderson Silva to return hopefully wanting to prove a lot and Anthony Pettis just do what he does best. Did Medieval Fighting from about 98 - 2005 and while the blood lust is still strong I probably wont be fighting again, the reason is a long story which involves a 2 handed axe, a total idiot, the madness of a 100+ combatant battle and then me being thankful for still having my shoulder and arm attached to my torso lol
In ESO was originally running a heavy armour sorcerer full tank spec till 50 until I tried pvp then dropped everything for dps and being annoying like sorcs can be, lol but looking forward to re-specing again to do a bit more tanking in PVE if that's what we need.
I'm usually found in game, but my Update5 is at 83% and probably won't be finished by midnight tonight, so I thought I'd do some guild administration whilst I watch that painfully slow download bar...
I live and work in Canberra - the capital of Australia. It is a nice city, and if it wasn't for the hot and cold extremes and the none existence of a beach or a decent swimming hole, I would like it here. Work and less traffic are the main pluses for me. My partner and I are dreaming/planning to retire to the NSW south coast in 5-10 years x-fingers.
I love strategy and RPG games. I started my RPG life in D&D and RuneQuest. Then computers brought them to life and did away with all the tedious die rolling, and positional and rule interpretation arguments. Ultima was the bees knees. I played Diablo to death. Civilization - just one more turn... FPS and RTS are a bit fast and furious with no substance, but OK for a quick blast. Guildwars was fun but for some reason I just never purchased the sequels. EverQuest was fun for a bit too, but crafting was tedious. I found Morrowind and Skyrim well after their release dates (2nd hand purchases) and found them generally real cool, but I kept falling through the ground and saw mobs falling from the sky or bouncing around in peculiar ways. D3 didn't do it for me. WOW was OK for a while but became more of a cartoon and movie script rip off. LOTRO was a little stiff, like cardboard.
I've been waiting a long while for a good MMO to come out again. With the history, law, depth and setting of the Elder Scrolls series I thought ESO could be the one. For the most part it has been able to satisfy my fantasy adventure addiction, and I look forward to it maturing into an awesome story with me being the central hero. Game on!
OMG TLDR LOL L8RS - 84%!

Better late than never.............. @Thoric101 aka Ken. Aussie living and working in Dubai(GMT +4, Sydney is GMT +10) I was lucky enough to log in just before the dart competition and catch the fun.
I like short walks to the kitchen and short drives to the grog shop.(we have them here in Dubai)
Got involved with MMO's with WoW & EQ2, AoC & The Secret World, Aion, Guild Wars 2, LoTRO, Rift, EVE online, Defiance and now ESO. Every game has its good and bad points, if only they took all the good points from every game and made it into one exceptional game...........now that would be something to play.
I really like playing ESO, my son and I are playing through all the quests doing Cadwell's gold so we don't miss out on any content and enjoy the game as it was meant to be. Dunno why people race to the end and skip content.
Trying to get mumble working so I can talk to you in game and get some groups going.
Hey everyone. Thanks a lot for the invite! My two in-game names you'll see most often are:
Foräois - Imperial Sorcerer of Ineptitude
Widoch - Nord Dragon Knight of Ignorance
My in game handle is @drschplatt.
I'm a US citizen who has been living in Taiwan for the past several years and I'm pretty excited to find a guild in my time zone with people who are actually online when I am!
My gaming experience started out at a very young age with traditional tabletop D&D and from there I moved on to Dark Age of Camelot (long live Widoch the crappy ax wielding Bard), then a few freebie games that sucked, and then most recently Lord of the Rings Online where I was very active for about 3 years (Long live Widoch the very stylish elf hunter or Silverlode.) LOTRO kind of fell apart as a game so now I'm here playing ESO(Long live Foräois the sorcerer with too much eyeliner.) I've long been a fan of the Elder Scrolls games, with Morrowind being my favorite.
I've been playing ESO from BETA and right now Foräois is VR6 with Widoch getting close to 50. I've spent a lot of time in PVP but have done basically no group raiding or dungeon work yet. I really want to get into trials, pledges, etc so I'll always be willing to group up and learn when the opportunity arises.
I'm maxed out in Clothing, Woodworking and Blacksmithing except for nirncrux stuff, so if anyone ever needs crafted items, send me a message and I'll be happy to help out.
I'm not as dumb as I look, their ain't no one that dumb. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Foräois - Imperial Sorcerer of Ineptitude Widoch - Nord Dragon Knight of Ignorance ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Looking to join the guild as part of the merger with Hunting Blades. Avid fan of ESO and Elder Scrolls in general..spent many hours playing Skyrim and Oblivion. In ESO, I have a VR 14 DK convenant member, but also a mage and templar; VR2 and VR1 who are AD members. All built for DPS. Love PvP.
Also a huge fan of the Dragon Age series; Dragon Age Origins, II and Inquisition and the Witcher series.
Work in international consumer products marketing so travel extensively. Gaming provides some much needed balance and pressure release! I live in the USA but have been to Australia. Miss those nights in the pub sucking down VB's and once in awhile some golden Crown Lagers.
My name is Brett and i'm playing a number of characters at the moment with the surname "De Gothia"
I just moved over from DC after I was recommended to this guild and got sick of playing on my lonesome.
I have started a saucy female templar named Grace, and I also have a DK called Kiv and a NB called Klthias although its looking like Grace will be my main for AD. She is spec'd and gearing towards Tank/Heals so we will see how that works out.
I also have a 38 NB and a 20 DK on DC, but its likely I'll just casually level those characters up for shits and giggles.
I have a fair bit of MMO experience, having run raids and guilds in both WoW and Everquest although nowadays with running my own business and 2 kids i tend to play fairly casually.
Anyway, I moved over here because of the great recommendation you lot were given so If you need a levelling partner or just want to hang out for some laughs let me know.
As soon as I can assign my characters on AD to Blackwater Blade and Thornwhateveritscalled I'll be spending some time in Cyrodiil - I do enjoying facepalming the kiddies in pvp :-)
anyway hit me up for a group in game!

My Name is Dave and I live in sunny Qld but originally from NSW :) I am very new to eso and it's style of theory crafting , but I have played various games over the years , Guild wars , Aion and Diablo just to name a few .
I hope to meet you guys in game and maybe chat some , but I will have to put some time in to get up to respectable lvl , haha
Hi guys! I'm @JadedJade, you can call me Jaded or Jade, I don't mind =)
I love to try out lots of different styles and builds, so I'm probably always playing an alt =P My main is a Vet 14 NB DPS though, and she's been with me since beta.
I also love to run dungeons, and since I now have a secondary character, a Vet 5 Templar, that can run all three roles right now (I may have to drop DPS eventually, Templar may not be able to keep it up)... I got sidetracked. I'll happily run pledges or any dungeons repeatedly with either my main or my secondary, so don't be afraid to ask me if you need a hand.
Tell you guys a secret though, I actually hadn't played any ES games or any MMORPG until ESO, so it's no surprise that I love the game. Oh, and did I mention I'm a girl? Don't hit on me, though, I'm not looking for a partner right now =P
I'm @Tannus15 and I've been playing various mmo's since Ultima Online.
I'm pretty casual these days and nothing interests me less than 'grinding stuff out'. I'll do what I can to tweak out my character, but I really don't care how my numbers compare. As long as my Tank doesn't die or my DPS kills stuff that's good enough for me.
I always enjoy a dungeon run, even if it doesn't work out.
other games I play are CS:GO and SC2 for my competetive streak.

I'm LaughingJack. this is my first MMORPG and my main character is Seriy Anaplian (taken from an Iain M. Banks novel).
Previously i have mainly played MMOFPS (Joint Operations for about 5 years, running with Australian Special Operations(~ASO~) clan) and other Online FPS (BF + BF:BC, MOHAA, ARMA2+3). In the early days it was Quake and Unreal etc., lanning at whoever's house could host the day. I've also played CS:GO a bit and some TF2 with the SlakGaming clan on their annual SlaktoberFest lan days.
I'm a fairly casual player and my High-Elf Templar main build is pretty casual as well. She's not really a specialist but can do damage and a bit of healing. I enjoy a good fight but i dont worry too much if i don't have an uber-build, not really into the whole min/max thing, just in for a bit of fun and try not to die too much in the process.
Cheers. .LJ (David)

I'm YourLiver and I've gaming around in all sorts of genre's for years In terms of ESO I was playing from beta to September last year when my trail guild went their separate ways. That said I'm keen to get back in as soon as i figure out new specs for the Sorc.
I'm a bit irregular as a player, not sure when I'll be on or busy. I like pvE and pvp and just generally a good time :)
May occasionally lose my keyboard to large fluffy cat
Well, I've been away for a conference, and when I get back my ESO is broken...so I figure now is a good time to introduce myself while I'm waiting for it to repair.
@Catbellu is me ingame. Simon is me IRL (Sploo, Catbellu, Simo, crazy bastard - I answer to all these)
Married + 4 monkeys (ranging from 6 years -> 2 weeks old). I'm 33 at present. Regional manager for Stocktake Dept at Woolworths (so there are a number of weeks of the year i travel away for work and won't be around). Melbourne, Vic is my current habitat.
I am a mad lover of music, I will listen to everything EXCEPT pop. I drum (I love hitting shit with sticks (yes, this DOES explain so many of my characters and their penchants)). I enjoy camping, fishing, hunting (with both bow and rifle),martial arts, anime and drinking games.
I've been gaming for many years, across several genres and formats (pen+paper RP, tabletop warfare, pc, even console (damn those Japanese and their addictive RPGs)). First MMORPG was PristonTale, then a dozen or more other games, most recently POE and LoL, I even played WoW for 4 days (spent the next 2 days scrubbing my hands, and the next 4 years denying it ever happened). Joined many guilds across those games, ran a few, created 2, killed a number ( I was truly a Jonah in 1 game, EVERY clan I joined died within 2 weeks).
In terms of play style....drunken tanking is my speciality. Dual wielding axes and keeping my party alive while drunk and singing (terribly)? Don't mind if I do! If I have to trade in the axes, you'll prob find me sneaking around, backstabbing your pet llama.
I tend to play with my music playing, so anyone stupid enough to have me on skype or other chat mediums is subjected to me singing while we play.
I was in ESO Beta, played for a couple of months after release, then got lured away by life for several more months, hence the low level toons despite the age of my account. BoV is my only guild at this point as I am a shy wallflower ingame, so I look forward to getting to know you all.
and now my game is almost repaired..so you've been saved from more pointless details....or singing...
*hurls 73.2 rabid echidnas at everyone and heads off to find his bourbon then head ingame*
If I advance, follow me; If I retreat, kill me; If I die, avenge me!
