I just wanted to post briefly about my plans for this weekend. As you have already gleaned from the title, I’m going to switch servers to Eternal Grove and will be hanging out with @LadyVerene along with some of my friends from twitter and meatspace. You are more than welcome to join me! My IGN is in fact Optimus Maleficus. I’m a little shy in real life, so just let me know you’re a reader if you decide to say hello or party up.
I don’t think overcrowding will be an issue this weekend–we learned from an ArenaNet blog post earlier this week that it will be possible to fast travel to your friends’ overflow server when you party up, and parties will all be placed in the same server when they zone. Still, if problems with Eternal Grove do crop up, I will probably bail and switch to Eve’s Warren before the free server transfer grace period is over. As for when I’ll be on, I won’t be available on Friday until around 10:30 PM EDT (UTC-4,) but I expect I will be up late playing. I should be available throughout Saturday and Sunday. I will mostly be doing PvE, but I will also try out WvW at some point.
If you’re thinking about a new profession to try, I have many words for you about why the necromancer is an excellent choice.
