I’m accompanied with my best friend Laurana in game who is awesome and a Guild Wars expert so it’s not even gonna suck. :D Plus, look at my character! He’s a plant and glows orange!!

A Guild Bounty

Sometimes duties for the Vigil are more mundane than fighting dragons. Sometimes we handle small matters of security as well, and when we do, often individual soldiers are chosen based on their personal experiences.

As I the ground grew firmer underfoot, a voice hailed me from the undergrowth. Curiosity overwhelming my suspicions, I made my towards the hidden figure and was rewarded with the sight of a prickly looking sylvari who introduced herself as Laewyn. Apparently my journey through the swamp, stomping and kicking everything in sight, had done the wardens in the area a great service.

So a few coins richer, and with a note of thanks quickly scrawled upon an iridescent leaf stuffed into my pocket, I made my (hopefully) to meet with Malyck at Joy’s End…
