About The Guild
 

Overview: Valkyrja Söngur [ODIN] is a Tarnished Coast guild focused on having fun while getting things done. The guild name translates as “Valkyrie Song” from the Old Norse Valkyrja meaning "chooser of the slain". ODIN is often described as "a casual guild for non-casual players" and welcomes players of all levels of skill and commitment to come and play in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Started in 2014 to counteract the burnout incurred by the strain of Season 2, ODIN has continued to provide a home for skilled players who want something different from their more regimented and demanding guilds as well as a home for new players who can learn and grow while having fun. Most ODIN members are involved with other guilds. In fact we encourage this as it provides a fuller experience (you have five guild slots for a reason!) and we don't intend to restrict you to one guild or one play style.  Most of our guild members play with us because we, simply, enjoy the game and the people we play it with.  

 


Current Guild Events

Guild Raid: Currently Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:00 Central U.S. time, 1:00 AM Server time.  Expect a whisper with a reminder and Borderlands info about 15 minutes before the start of the raid. We also will occasionally run a reset, either as a havoc group or as a support group. This will be announced in the guild message of the day.  

 

Guild Mission: Prior to raids on Wed or Thurs we may run the occasional guild mission. This is based on player interest level and are quick and dirty, "get'er done" events. Often this is done in WvW so it works out

Guild Special Events: From the start,  ODIN has been known for their "special event" raids in which we all choose a specific class or two to run together.  Again, that is a "to be announced" event.

Other (PvE, PvP, etc): Many of our members are excellent PvP players and that may also be on the agenda.  If player interest is there we will do dungeons, fractals and the occasional jump puzzle. 

 

We welcome ideas for raids and events. See Guild Contacts below for more information.

Core Values

Fun: We want to have fun within the constraints of a community of gamers who are diverse and distinctive.  Gaming for many is a way of getting away from “real life” and having a good time with others. This guild was created to have fun when playing with others in a more focused and organized group. Communication helps in that goal. Mumble or TS is highly encouraged and, as usual, you don't have to talk, but you should really listen in (think of all the witty banter you would miss out on if you didn't!). We are not the type of guild where you will be screamed at or “whipped into shape” when running with us, but to accomplish things you will be expected to listen to a group leader or driver. If you are inexperienced in WvW, that is perfectly all right, we'll catch you up to speed as long as you're willing to listen. We will try and teach you what we know, learn from you, and have a lot of laughs. We are primarily WvW oriented, but we do run dungeons and other events (see above) and we have numerous officers with significant experience in the PvE and PVP arenas as well. 

We do not have a representation policy (there is a reason ANET gave us 5 guild slots!) and we like that you are members of other guilds because, of course, we will benefit from all the things you learn from them!  We raid at least 8 times per month scheduled, more unscheduled as well. Of course we'd really like you to be there, and hope you show up every once in a while. As we make it fun for you, we know you will come back.


Respect: In order to have the aforementioned fun, we ask that you respect each other and all members of the ODIN and Tarnished Coast community. Friendly bantering is fine (and encouraged). However, while we may banter, joke, tease, and be “edgy,” some comments and words that would commonly be considered offensive will not be accepted  (i.e. racial slurs of any kind, sexist, or homophobic comments, serious abusive insults, etc.). These things do not add anything to the game or the community. We do expect that if something makes you uncomfortable, you will speak up about it honestly (private whispers to an officer are perfectly fine), but do not keep it to backroom whispers or turn it into unnecessary guild drama when it can be resolved. Note however that this IS an adult guild and there will be racy and coarse topics at times (please don’t bring children into our chat room).

We also ask that you do not offend, discriminate, or disrespect other guilds or opponents in-game, at least when running raids with us. Please no provocational "emotes" of any kind such as "teabaging" a dead invader, "laughing" at a dead invader, "trolling" with siege blueprints, etc. We expect you will be generally respectful of other commanders when they are leading as well, it is an often thankless position and although you may not agree with them or choose to follow them we are all on the same team.  Please don’t stab people in the back, don't try and scam the community, don’t use hacks, etc. Be aware that your actions while wearing our guild tag represent our guild, so please also refrain from griefing and flaming in public channels (feel free to tell people how downright awesome we are though). We realize that sometimes things can get heated, we are as competitive as the next person, but try not to be "that" person! 


Adaptability and Self-sufficiency: Members should be willing to adapt to new situations and feel able to make suggestions.  If you think you know of a better build or a better way of doing something, We Want To Hear From You!  You can play the class and build you want. We may ask for volunteers to run a particular class or build that is needed, or suggest more tankiness or offense or stability, etc.  However this will never be mandatory.   As well, it is fine to ask for help if you have a question, that is what guildies are for!  We like teaching others about the game and what we know and we like learning from others as well.  In addition there are many websites out there that specialize in all things Guild Wars that can answer your questions.  We may direct you to them.  However, Beggars (aka asking for gold) will be fed to Geri and Freki, the resident wolves, grrrr.

Now awful it is to be without,
as blood-red rack races overhead;
is the welkin gory with warriors' blood
as we Valkyries war-songs chanted

I'm not saying every night with ODIN is this serious. Just most. Many? Often. Definitely often. Come just us. Leave your inhibitions behind the filing cabinet and carry along a penchant for misplacing your pants halfway through the night. 

That could just be me.

Is this a recruiting drive?   It looks it!

Please feel free to invite MrQuillen.3014 when you are able.  In the meantime I will look for the names listed above in game as soon as I return from taking these two dogs for a walk.

 

Enjoying my time on Tarnished Coast, but wow is it lonely in my bank guild with just me, myself, and I :)
