I think that Coldharbour is a nice last zone and I had a lot of fun too... and a love Cadwell :) So enjoy it. Remember that you just need to say when you want to do Vaults of Madness and I will be there.

There is always things to improve and on ESO there few of them. But it's still for me a great MMO if you like an inmerse game, great lore and quests (in general, sometimes you encounter some silly and nonsense quest too in ESO :P). They need to improve the combat response, but I really enjoy the combat in ESO, love it! :)

We like EVENTS!

We like EVENTS!

In Whitestar, we enjoy events. We organise them regularly for all our guilds accross all our games. Social events, Dungeons run, adventures, even PVP once in a while! Sometimes it's challenging to imagine events where all our members can participate, without level restrictions. But we do our best to have events for every taste, for all our members! Most of our events are organised by the Guild Leader or one of its officers. We do encourage our regular members, even our trials to take the initiative and to organise an event themselves. This add more dynamism to the guild and give more opportunities to have fun all together. Our events are announced on our Nook calendar, with details and informations and reminded in the TIP of the day.

Enjoy this recap of our last events: Caravan Mambo, Initiation to Fishing and Halloween Fun

CARAVAN MAMBO

One of the favourite activity in Whitestar is the Trade run. However, a trade run event can hardly be organised in advance, due to the zones being in conflict or at peace according to the server activity and we have no way to predict this in advance. There is only one save route that can allow us to make some proper gold while taking zero risk. And that's the route we are choosing to organise our Caravans.

We gather in Gweonyd to create our packs of specialities that we pack on our Tradecart, or if we do not have any, on our donkeys. While everyone is getting ready, we enjoy to park our karts in a pretty line, which eventually attract attentions of random players. We press our horn, and we start the run, all in line following the one in front of us.
Not much is happening during a Trade run, which leave us the occasion to chat on teamspeak, having fun together and admiring the landscapes as we cross them. Once we arrive at destination, we drop our packs to the Gold Trader, satisfied to have mixed profit with a social event. But we never end a Caravan without a little celebration.

One time, we had Internet getting his Clipper-boat pulled by Hultay's kart, while Cornilius, Lunadra and myself were dancing on the boat, with a music box on my back. We managed to go so far as Marianople in our weird Parade. Many random players toke the chance as they saw us passing by to climb in the boat and they started to dance aswell.
The Caravan organised by @Kitiandra didn't stopped at Ezna. Instead, Hultay lead the party by sea with his clipper, and everyone sold their pack to the Sanddeep GoldTrader for some extra gold!

One of our project, in future, is to organise a huge donkey-caravan, open to everyone in the server.

FISHING INITIATION

Fishing in Elder Scrolls Online is an unfinished feature. Not much people are even trying fishing, as it's useless beside getting some achievement points (and since Update3, unlock some pretty dyes). However, as I discovered along this event, fishing is fun, relaxing and an ideal activity to do as a guild to hang out together, enjoying the beauty of Tamriel landscapes while chatting on Teamspeak.

This event was an idea of @Vaetilda who wanted to share with the rest of the guild the simple joy of fishing. She prepared a guide and locations to make us discover this ignored activity. Yorkeys, Mida, Animan-the-Squelton and myself started our adventure in Stormhaven. Vaetilda explained us how to differiencate the four type of water: salt, foul, lake and river, and what bait to use to catch the fishes. In case we missed a bait or another, her bags were filled with worms, insect parts, crawlers and rabbit guts.
Being able to recognise the right type of water was more tricky than we would have expected. Sometimes a lake was a river due to waterfall pouring their water in the pond. Sometimes, what we could have expected to be foul water, was salt water, or lake water...
We walked arround in Stormheaven, trying to find fishing spot, and to catch rare fishes. Then we moved to Glenumbra, in the swamps surrounding Camlorn, trying to find foul water. Santrasa joined us at that point. Then we realised that we had actually spent two hours fishing!

This even was a nice discovery, a relaxing evening hanging out together and spending great time. This is something we will do again. Our goal is to finish all achievements together and unlock the precious dyes.

HALLOWEEN FUN

Amazing event imagined and organised by @Alakina and @Savian . Lot of Whitestarians joined. The usual gang Agagor, Neny, Vijo, Itslifejim, but also Nyahna, Lunadra, Hultay, Cornilius, Internet, SirOwe and even Sharlena making her comeback in the guild, and Ziggs who attempted to participate between two customers.

We gathered in Duskwood, in Raven Hills for the first game. We had to run away within the cemetary on our ground mount (I personaly choose my loyal White Talbuk) while Savian and Alakina were pursuing us trowing us pumkins! If we were hit by a pumkin, we were eliminated from the game. Everyone were running or hidding, laughing and joking! Sharlena and Nyahna were captured first, while Hultay was sneaking in the shadow (as worgen he didn't needed a mount) and Internet's cute gnome was hidding behind a tree...which worked for a while, but not long enough to beat Vijo, the Champion of the game!
Second game was the costume contest, supposed to be a transmogriff contest, but participants had misunderstood and therefor Alakina accepted the use of toys and costumes. Sharlena was wearing a creepy gaz mask and a simple dress, Nyahna was disguised as a succubus, SirOwe had a anti-radiation gnome suits, Internet was a evil little gnome witch, Neny was wearing a cook hat, and Agagor a Pumkin head, while Itslifejim was wearing a terrific Troll plate armor. I had, of course the best disguise, dressed as a terrible Arrakoa! We will never know why Lunadra, disguised as a naked orc didn't participated.

Third game was the ground mount race! Starting from Zul'Aman, the finish line was BootyBay! We had to cross all EasternKingdoms! Unfortunately the race started with a loading screen which make Internet crash his game, and abandonning at the very start. Lunadra immediatly toke the lead, followed by Sharlena, Agagor and Neny. They all disputed the second place while Luna was riding like a shooting star! Far behind, Nyahna and I toke a wrong path and we lost ourselves in EasternPleagueland. As we had no chance to get back in the race, we decided in Strongletorn Valley to cross the finish line together in the Sidecart! At the top, the battle was hard between Agagor, Cornilius, Neny and Sharlena. Sharlena was killed at BootyBay' entrance, 'cause she had been a meanie in the past with the Goblins.
The event finished on BootyBay's dock. Everyone that bought lottery tickets recieved some wrapped packet in their mail box. A unfortunate bug made some packages desepear. Bad Blizzard! I won a rare pet, a fierce Tideskipper!
It was really a great event, and everyone had tons of fun!

Thank you @Alakina I didn't meant to hijack your recap tbh, but if it saves you time I'm happy. To be honest with you I wanted to write the blog post separately for each game, starting with ESO today and then I though that it would be conflicting with your recap that I expected you to post tomorrow. So I though that the best idea was to make a global post about our events and use it in all recruitment post. GUYS, you are allowed to write comments about the events and the guild in our recruitment post listed in this thread >> anook.com/topic/3637 :P

... and at the end we were wondering, Is he dead? So @Mida thought, lets try the most simple way of checking it out, some kicks :) With @santrada, @sg17a8000 and myself.... Just to let you know, he was complete dead from the beginning, he was an undead, so let say that he was dead*2 :P

From a pure skill perspective yeah it doesn't matter which melee weapons you're using, but have a look at the passives that come from the 1h and shield line, some of those passives will help YOU stay alive.

One of the problems with your melee game is that it doesn't look like you've taken Puncturing Strikes in the Aedric Spear line, and morphed it into the version that heals you. Doing that will turn melee-range into something akin to easy mode. That might help you with Sword & Shield (and, it's not bad with Staff.)

Turning Red! (Not really)

So, I've been advancing Red Magea, the Redguard Red Mage, and she's now Lv.10. Not VR10...just Lv.10.

Even in five low levels of play, this is turning into a very interesting character to level. I started off with a fire staff (I found it apropos), and took some Destruction Staff abilities like Elemental Reach and Elemental Wall. I liked the 'Wall' ability because in PvP it could potentially provide some area-denial, which is nice.

However, I switched Red Magea to being a dual-wielder (both swords have Sharpened, which is +damage and spell penetration). I think this has been the correct way to go all along, because now RM is a she-beast. Starting with Dark Flare, I pound enemies with Sun Fire until they get into close range. Most PvE enemies are dying well before they get close enough to bring the dual swords to bear, but in PvP, the initial barrage probably won't mean much.

The big debate for right now, is what to do with Sun Fire? Vampire's Bane is tempting for PvP, but Reflective Light will make my PvE career easier. Similarly for Nova, Solar Disturbance is tempting for PvP...but in the sorts of large-scale battles that exist in ESO, maybe Solar Prison is better.

The Big Picture
Long story short, you can see what I've got up to this point. (Note that the Destruction Staff bar has to be hard-swapped to right now, as I'm not yet Lv.15) I've sought all of the first two 'noob island' skyshards, done the quest to get Lyra Titanborn back, and have gotten a few of the Glenumbra Skyshards.

With Dual Wield, I've sacrificed some ranged damage ability to be able to actually fight at close range, but Red Magea left unattended will be periodically debuffing and nuking like a champ. Up close she's actually really vulnerable, but with proper kiting/column-humping techniques she could be a fair guerilla fighter.
