It is tradition in our Alliance to promote the next highest level guild to helm so that they have the benefit of the building discount by being the helm and get to level 20. We decided we should put our new helm in the spotlight and chat to one of their leaders Lord of War.
How was Monsters of War started?
MoW was started by GodofWar@cptwoofy, Lord Of War@rrevm and a few of cptwoofy’s friends way back in beta. GodofWar got busy with real life for a while, so Lord Of War took over the guild in his absence. It was meant to be a guild for a few friends to play the game together. I would meet pug players that were so much fun to play the game with. I would friend request them. I had so many friends that were from other guilds, but I did not care. As long as we had fun, that was all that mattered.
Before long, these friends would request to belong to MoW. It was an honour and loads of fun to have them in the guild. We had multiple alts and used them to progress the guild. We had less than ten members and progressed the guild to rank eight all by ourselves 🙂 GodofWar came back to lead the guild and was so impressed by our progress, that he began recruiting to make MoW the size that it is today. Our plan has always been to have fun with good friends, I am happy to say we have enjoyed many hours playing Neverwinter 🙂
How did you choose your guild name?
Monsters of War was chosen by my son GodofWar@cptwoofy. He has many figurines/playing pieces that he has assembled for the tabletop version, it takes up lots of space!
Did you ever play D & D?
He plays D & D, I have not.
Funniest moment in Neverwinter
The funniest moment for me was when I realised a good friend player that I had been playing the game with for over three years was really a woman! Up until that point, so many female characters were just guys as far as I knew. I was surprised to meet a real girl, especially one that always kicked the other guys butts when it came to playing the game 🙂 One of our party members while questing made a crude remark, which was unusual for us, but he was a new member. My friend became very quiet, since we always used text, we never heard voices. The crude remark was made to her cute female character. I private messaged “You are a guy aren’t you?” The reply was, “No I am a girl”. The funny part is, to this day the offending member has since been promoted to rank seven status does not speak crudely anymore, but still does not know this other member is a girl 🙂
What do you miss from the old days of the start of Neverwinter?
What I miss from the old days of Neverwinter are the wonderful old armour sets that looked great! Also the fact that nothing was bound before.
What would you like to see next in Neverwinter?
Next I would like to see no more character bound items in the game. It would be nice to be able to share all assets between account toons, even such things as mounts and companions. As far as content, I have been pleased so far. Once we reach level 20, it will be nice to be able to assist the other guilds reach their level 20. I am so impressed the other level 20 guild stayed in alliance to continue helping the others. I thought perhaps there would always be an influx of lowers guilds with the level 20 guilds leaving the alliance. I am glad this is not the case, because we have such awesome people in the alliance and it is a joy to be able to continue enjoying their company and play styles 🙂
How has it been since joining the Cloaks Alliance?
The Alliance has been a joy for us to be a part of and we humbly appreciate being invited to this group of wonderful players 🙂
Thanks for your interest in us AlleyKate 🙂
