We are the Wanderers, the online Gone Gold Guild you may of heard of.  We would just like to extend an invitation to you if you are currently considering playing WOW. We will be playing the Horde on WHISPERWIND

We can be found at http://www.thewanderers.us/

We are a mature gaming guild made up of professional family men and women age 20-60+

 To learn more stop on by. We have a very lively WOW forum going on as well as many players in game.  We have had about 20 members testing for over a year now. We plan on having 75-100 players  in game opening week.  


We wish Rage the best of luck with your guild here and with so many options(AvH) and servers to chose from we just wanted to make ourselves an option, and once again known and invite a friendly welcome to our console gold friends.

Other than a few people who seem to harbor personal animosity towards me, I can wholeheartedly reccomend the Wanderers guild if you are not interested in playing with Console Golders or with the server/side we eventually choose to play.

The balance of them are kind, fun, helpful, entertaining people to play with and the experience can be very rewarding if you avoid the unending wrath of the guild leaders.

I certainly hope many CG'ers choose to stick it out here and help us create a Console Gold guild of our own, but I wanted to be fair and let you know that they offer a refined, established gaming experience.

Pharaoh, Eightball, Rognor, Cyntax(Trey), Gwen, Rittchard, Cortilian, Babykon, and many others are simply some of the best MMO players and internet buddies around.

Man, I'm going to have to come to your server just to enjoy Rittch again.

You guys were a riot in Horizons and FFXI.  In fact, the Wanderers were the only reason I played those awful games beyond a day or two, I'd say...

I haven't decided if I am going to purchase WoW yet.  But if I do I am definately interested in the Wanderers.  I played Planetside with them for a short time and found the community to be very mature and friendly.  Highly recomended.

I just want to interject my opinions on your guild guys..(Wanderers) I hope constructive criticism is ok??

I've been around the GG site for years...steady poster, avid trader, some say all round good guy.. :wink:

Anyway, a couple of times, way back in the good old DAoC days, I attempted to "fit" in with the Wanderers..The core of whom are still established to this day..

What I found was a good bunch of players............."IF" you got into the inner-circle of power...
Alot of times I remember asking questions a couple of times in chat without any response, whilst all the while the "inner-core" chatted away...
Not a real biggy, but enough to make new comers feel on the outside.
Like I said earlier, I dont consider myself new to this group.

I also found it hard to get some of the "higher" up players to help me out. Again, I dont think they are mean spirited, just really wrapped up in the inner circle of friends...

I know alot of people will poo-poo on my post, and thats fine. But I think as grown up men and women a little balance is always good.

Just remember fella's, when you extend a open invitation into your guild and the person makes an attempt to get to know you, open up your ranks and let them in a bit...It will go a long way to make newer and closer friends on line..

I wish you guys all the best....Oh and going Horde has got to be another negative as well.......... :twisted:  :roll:  :wink:

Everyone has experiences like that in MMORPGS. Even though I"m an officer in the guild, I myself have had times when I couldn't get anyone in-guild to answer my questions or help me out. And while it sometimes feels like you need to be in a "secret inner circle" to be valued, that's not what we're about.

We play the games to have fun, to make new friends, and to hang out with old ones.  In the code of conduct it says "if you're not having fun, log off, go do something else, and come back later."

Some people value their old friendships more than making new ones. Some like exploring on their own. Some like helping others. That's because everyone is different. We're a family and as with any family, you're closer to some parts of it than to others.

I'm sorry you felt like you needed to be in some secret inner circle to be part of the gang. That's not the way it is.

FWIW, I'm new to the Wanderers, having been one of the first to join to play City of Heroes. I think the experience you have with the group is going to vary from game to game, since not everyone plays everything, and the few who stick with it long-term will be different from game to game.  

My exeprience with CoH has been great. Generally, people were helpful in guild chat, invited me into groups when I needed a spot, etc. Now I find myself in the other chair, recruiting new folks, doling out influence to lower-level players when they need it, answering questions, helping people wiith their missions, organizing groups, etc.

I'm not part of any "inner-circle" yet I'm GM for CoH now. As I said, if the leadership for a particular game is good, that's all that will matter, but I found the Wanderers to be open and acceppting.

You know, I hate to say it, but I had more or less the same experience trying to fit in playing Horizons.  Most of them are pretty good guys though, and many were willing to help out eventually... I just never felt that same sense of group that others talk about.

Hopefully I'll have better luck in WoW if I decide to play Horde,

I never felt I needed to be in some secret inner circle..I never once used the word, Secret.

I felt the need to be apart of a friendly guild...Thats it...

I meant no offence by my statement, but I stick by it.

Remember, we are now in the process of forming a Console Gold guild, and those of you worried about being lost in the crowd, our goal is to have a small, cozy, comfy, connected 25-30 person guild.

I figured we might as well both pimp it up at the same time.

If I get around to updating my aging computer I'm planning on trying WoW so may look you all up.

I was also in the initial Wanderers group in DAoC and after the big split I didn't like the direction it was going so left and eventually quit the game shortly thereafter.

I'm willing to forget all that since it was so long ago  smile

The majority of the Wanderers are in the US, spread across the country.  You can check the WanderMap to get an idea of the distribution.  I don't think the map is all inclusive, but I'd suspect that the bulk of the guild are in the US.

That said, I think we've got a few folks who tend to play during the day more often than night, but most folks will be on in the evenings.

Is there a size limit to the Wanderers WoW guild at all?  I played for a bit in DAoC until I lost interest in the game.   CoH had an artificial guild size limitation I think, not sure if other games do or don't.

I won't rehash what Charlatan and Gollum are saying except to say that yeah, what happened to Gollum can happen, though I don't think anyone wants that to be the case.  It has happened to me in games.  

Somtimes people join a chat channel or get an invite and are introduced to folks that are online at the time.  Others log on without the benefit of the introduction so they don't know the person asking the questions.  Now, that's not an excuse but maybe an explanation of why you may have felt like you got the cold shoulder.  

I'm not in the group playing WoW (I'm doing EQ2) but I've been involved in the guild since late '02 and it's a great bunch of folks, 75% of which have roots at Gone Gold.  If you are planning on playing WoW you might give it another shot.

I would also encourage anyone planning to join us to register and post at the forums (actually this is required--you have to agree to the CoC).  Semi-frequent posting is a great way to get people to recognize you in game and hey, we can all use another message board to frequent eh?

Whatever your decision I hope you can find a good guild to play with.  That makes the games IMHO.

I recently joined the Wanderers, since I was playing CoH and the GG guild decided to merge with them.  So far, I have had nothing but good experiences with the guild.  I've sidekicked on a high end mission and I've had someone be willing to be an exemplar for me so I could finish a mission I was soloing.  I'm a casual player, and I've enjoyed the professionalism and friendliness of the group whenever I've logged on.

the wanderers have come a long way since the daoc days.  We are more diverse and spread across more games.  Friendships form but they take time for trust to build.  I have enjoyed all my contact with them and find them to be very generous if given the chance.

No one talks to you when you first join. There are too many people. No one talked to me personally for like two weeks until I started to become a fixture, and then over time, my identity, quirks, playstyle, and everything merge together into the guild mentality and core, and bingo, Im a Wanderer, and loved and worshipped by all! Yup, thats exactly it!

Does WoW have an equivalent of City of Heroes' sidekick system?  I like the idea of having a game to play with other people, but I won't be starting this week, and I'm sure I won't put in enough time to keep up with other people.

Chris, I think the devs have mentioned they were considering it, but there really isn't an equivalent system.  However, we've got around 75-100 people in the Wanderers WoW guild at the moment, so it's pretty likely that someone is going to be moving at the same pace as you, either with a main or an alt.

Plus the fact is that WoW's quests are not like the quests in CoH - they don't scale to your group's level, and so it'd be a bit more difficult to have the sidekick thing work. You'd end up doing the higher level guy's quest with him (you couldn't get it because you'd be too low) then you'd have to do the same quest over later for yourself. Which sounds sorta boring.

I agree with Gedd - there is a wide range of levels in the guild (heck, in the world) such that lowbie characters shouldn't have much of a problem finding groups (and by the way, I have noticed that below 10, most people don't group much in the first place - and WoW is a bit more solo-iffic than many other MMORPGs I've been in).

Dang, wish one of the groups here was playing on a PvP server.

I might give either this or the CG one a shot here at some point, although I plan to have my main be on a PvP server for now at least.

I'll definitely check this out though, most of my friends that played DA either are out of MMO's or still stuck there, so I need a new group of peeps. smile
