The entire player base will be in one server, all the Bristians, Orpesians, and Illierans will be combined to become Castillans!
Excited? Worried? Happy? Thrilled? Sad? It really does not matter, the entire merging will bring upon great emotions, regardless of them being good or not. In the end I think its something to be optimistic about, one my biggest goals is to friend as many people as I can and help as many people as I can.
Maybe you should start figuring out what your goals will become through this new transformation, because once January 2nd comes and the server goes live on January 9th, nothing, and I mean nothing, will be the same; I don't think it has hit everyone fully.
This, like many of my blogger friends, will become my last post regarding GamersFirst and Sword 2. But there is no end without a beginning. This might be the end of Sword 2 but it is only the beginning of Granado Espada.
Am I ready for the new server? No.
Do I wish I was? No, I'd rather keep it interesting and put myself against the wall, I do my best work when I'm against a wall, just drives me more to create more than if I were ready to go; however, I do wish I was a bit more caught up on my quest, word of advice, keep up with your quest lol.
A few things I have done though (No I didn't create any new weapons for any new UPCs):
- I bought the amount of lollipops I needed.
- I stocked up on costumes for the new costume exchanger.
- I still have my ridiculous amount of shiny keys.
- I leveled an impressive amount of alts in order to help with my clans level and for my own personal use, family level wise and more importantly, vis wise. (Hopefully they all transfer through).
- I plan to take screen shots of all my gear in case something bad happens when we merge.
Now its really nothing crazy like some people have done, but these are just a couple of things I have done that will hopefully, benefit me once we transfer. All the advice I have given to everyone through my blog, I have done, so I am not just giving people meaningless advice, because I as well, am doing it :P.
When the server transfer, and people need masters, I will be ready to take orders :).
In the end, I am excited to close this chapter and open a new one, I am more excited of the new people I plan to meet. I am also a business man, I do plan to grasp Castillas economic situation and create a sustainable income for myself.
My biggest project at the moment is over, which is a little secret of mine, a few people know if it, hopefully it pays off! My next big project is to start and create my "Newbie" guide for new players, a Q&A type guide.
Well anyways, ill end this post with a bunch of screen shots of my adventures through GamersFirst in Sword 2, a bit of random little events throughout my Sword 2 life, I'll put little captions at the bottom of each picture =).
^ Just doing some random poses with my lover girl, LaFolle~
^ Some GM with an amazing staff / rod.~
^ Haha, just a random screen shot of something +Seraphim+ said, I do miss him.~
^ Funny, yet pretty immature player, I laugh at that screen shot now.~
^ I always use to love the idea of Reckless Emilia, named her Bellatrix after the dark wizard in the Harry Potter series.~
^ An old picture of my old clan when I came back, Eryxias, the death of it was quick, and the picture represents the old members in it.~
^ Just a random picture of my old clan Eryxias being full of alts at capacity :P.~
^ For a while I really loved farming for those egg shells and getting constellation boxes when they were still valuable.~
^ Just in the UPC raid, the blueish type skill coming off my hellena is pretty crazy looking haha, its like a flame thrower.~
^ Soloing the last boss of Castilla Ruins; gotta overcome new challenges!~
^ Some type of raid in Lucifer Castle, loved all the lionels lined up :P~
^ Saying goodbye to my dear friend and business partner, +Seraphim+.~
^ An uber picture of a freiend of mine, Belletrix, tanking queen in second form!~
^ An uber picture of a friend tanking queen in 3rd form, raise that staff Queenie!~
^ Haha, I went to class solo with my Christmas Emilia, came back to this, was quit the surprise, and I did enjoy it very much.~
^ I really like this picture, of course it is Belletirx, the tank, with the crazy ass NPC shooters shooting at the Queen in her 2nd form while she lifts her sword as the tank, well, tanks!~
^ Just a picture of my elementalist, my favorite costume for her actually.~
^ Took this not to long ago while vesping, and found Fynlo with his uberness just standing there lol, and no, he never replied :P.~

^ My last Neph. in Sword 2.(I think she dropped a farewell Greek Croma Recipe :P).~
^ My last Cortez in Sword 2.~
^ My last daily bounty in Sword 2, I really like how the picture captures the blue death rare going off from my hellena to the boss haha, and my lionel just standing there.~
^ I will end with this picture of me, in Land of the Dead. For a while I farmed that place like no other man, I farmed so many thousands of pure otite, it funded 1/3 of my Sword 2 life style, one of my best investments of all time, I love that place, and I will visit it time from time in Castilla!~
Hopefully you all enjoyed some of my Sword 2 screen shots :).
Good bye to you GamersFirst and Sword 2, its been lively!
