About RED - Guild Wars 2, Devona's Rest
Spys Sappin Mah Guild Name [RED] is a large active Guild Wars 2 social guild located only on the Devona’s Rest server.
We focus on the following:
We do require guild members to keep chat PG-13 and ONLY represent our guild. You must be a permanent residence on the Devonas Rest server - guesting is allowed though.

Over the next week or so, read and contribute to the Guardian class discussion board. There are already a number of builds you can find, from AH builds to Symbol Healing to Meditation-based builds.
What do you run? Why? Is it effective? Share your Guardian expertise with your guildies!

Crushing WvW Victories & Outstanding Achievements
In this March 2014 edition of the RED newsletter, you'll hear just how well we did this month, and what we have our sights set on to accomplish by April!
A quick nod to all those who have stepped up recently into RED leadership. Feel free to ask any of our new officers questions you may have.
This guild lottery was the largest ever, with a pot of 333G! This round's lottery jackpot winner is Waster, who has won half the pot, a whopping 166.5G! Stillwater has won 10% of the pot, 33.3G. Thirdly, Raincor is richer by 5% of the pot, 16.65G. Congratulations to them all!
Though not quite as prolific as our tremendous guild lottery, we do have another victory to announce! Pewey's screenshot received the popular vote in our screenshot contest. Congratulations to Pewey, who has won 5G! Some entries were also selected to appear in this newsletter.
We'll hold another screenshot contest the last week and a half of March, this time with a chance to win 10G! Second place will receive 5G. Keep those cameras ready!
Readers curious to see all entries to the contest can view them in this thread.
Interview with a
This month, Ashen Ironbark answers our questions. A veteran of GW and RED, we're glad to hear from him!
Where are you from? What's the best part about where you live?
I'm currently in Pittsburgh, PA. The best part about living here is that it is easy to be more fashionable than half the city, since everyone wears black and yellow all year. It's like living with bumblebees! But seriously, the city, once you're in, has amazing views and all of your necessities are very accessible.
When did you start playing Guild Wars? What introduced you to the game?
I started playing Guild Wars 2 at launch. I followed the development of the game because I was really interested in an slightly more active MMO. Before this, I played Final Fantasy XI for a little over a year. Red Mage/Summoner for the infinite MP pool!
When did you first join RED?
I joined RED around the first Halloween event (or just before?). I was getting into WvW and joined up with Vexiq back when almost nobody roamed the Borderlands.
What does RED offer to you?
RED offers me a community where I can almost always find someone to interact with. Not having a defined focus lets me get into fractals, WvW, dungeon runs . . . RED helps me feel like no part of the game is off limits.
Where would you like to see RED go next?
I would love see RED grow into a stronger community. People come and go as life demands, but it would be great to be known for more than just WvW and being a really freakin' huge guild. Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name~
Any advice to newer players?
It is REALLY easy to get overwhelmed. Take it slow. Customize your controls so that you feel comfortable playing. Don't feel pressured to keep up with every Living Story event, every world boss kill, every dungeon run, every experience train. It's not a race. If you play like it is one, you WILL burn yourself out. Trust me, all aspects of the game have already been done. All the known legendaries have been crafted, all the dungeons exploited. Someone with more time and money will always be whizzing by - just enjoy yourself and do what you do, boo-boo.
You've been leading the recent fight against Tequatl. What can RED do to help?
We are currently 1 for 3 (with RED in charge) and have another rematch every Sunday. I would love to have your support there. More people that are on TeamSpeak and know what they are doing is really essential to the fight. Unfortunately, 9/10 people just want to show up and DPS, get their loot chests, and run off to do Temple runs. This is not that kind of event - it takes some player skill and coordination. If you really don't want to learn the mechanics, that's fine, but please don't come. If you are genuinely interested, I am always available for questions up until the time of the actual fight itself. It's great to learn ('cuz knowledge is power)! Bring your A-game and let's put him down regularly. Other servers can do it, so can Devona's.
Recap of Goals and Accomplishments
At the beginning of March, RED leadership got together and decided on a handful of goals. We smashed each of them! In March, in WvW we tightened up as a guild and increased our overall count of active WvW Mist Warriors. Tetisuko revived Jump Monday: every Monday at reset time, he has led some and portalled others through treacherous crevasses. We had over 25 people sign up on Red-Guild.com, recruited at least 35 people into [RED], and had a tremendous lottery!
Please take the time to thank Svidangit, Raincor, Talas, Aklyz, Tetisuko, and all of the others who work hard to keep [RED] healthy!
In April, RED has similar goals. You'll notice us pushing attendance for some events and moving others around. Help us accomplish our goals by being in the know of when events are and by bringing your friends!
Calendar Update - Guild and Server Events Aplenty
New in February is Jump Monday - an event that used to be a staple in the RED weekly rotation, but went unran for a long time. Every Monday at reset you can find Tetisuko leading people. The current set of Monthly Achievements requires you to complete Jumping Puzzles - join Tetisuko to do them easily!
Wednesday guild events have been going along swimmingly, with the last Wednesday of Februray bringing in over 30 members of [RED]. This month we had success basically everywhere: from Branded For Termination to Save Our Supplies. We did call in the big guns again for help with Save our Supplies. BRL, UHoT, and GVNC showed up in numbers to keep those barrels alive. Thanks to those guilds for their help. Gratitude is owed to Ashen Ironbark again for helping out with Guild Events while Prae Tor is busy with school.
As always, you can find the complete set of events on our calendar, of course. You can find server-wide events on the calendar at http://DevonasRest.org
Whether you are participating in WvW, PvE, or guild events, TeamSpeak is an invaluable tool. Our TS server is theredguild.typefrag.com and we frequently use devonasts.org. TS is highly recommended in many situations and required for several of the guild events. It is absolutely a blast to be coordinating with everyone. If you have any questions on how to download, install, or set up TeamSpeak, ask Prae Tor or Talas Kaidan.
We remove our inactive members periodically. To remain active, please sign on at least once a month. If you are mostly inactive and would like to remain in RED, send Prae Tor a mail. Another way to guarantee that we know you are active is to gain achievement points. If you should happen to be removed for inactivity, and you have returned to playing again, you are always welcome back to RED. Simply contact a leader/officer who will get you an invite back into the guild.
Guildies - share ideas for what you’d like to see. Please reply to this post if there is anything RED can do for you!.
Please be aware when you post questions in guild chat and get no response that you are not being ignored. Some guildies might be deep in the bowels of a dungeon or subduing dragons and may not see your post. Officers may not be available due to babies, deadlines, relocations, stall mucking and hangovers. And did I mention babies? You can post your question in the forums, or you can send in-game mail to Prae Tor or Talas Kaidan and we can route it to the proper person if need be.
- Prae Tor, with thanks to Ashen Ironbark for putting up with my questions.
