An interesting thing happened while I was jumping for coins on the Argonnessen server the other day.
A player got on Harbor chat and casually announced that Your Part-Time Guild was recruiting on the Wayfinder server.
I thought it was an odd thing to do, yet quite bold. I engaged the person, who turned out to be one Guildmaster Kyll, and was fairly impressed by his skew on recruitment.
He said there was no pressure. He understands not many people are going to play on Wayfinder permanently when the other servers are where most people keep their main toons. He never said anything like, “Stay active.”
I like the idea that players from all servers are gathering (over 500 accounts) in his guild on this remote piece of DDO real estate.
I never really considered Wayfinder an option. I created a character there when it was a German-language server, but I never really spent time there.
The past few days I’ve spent most of my time on Wayfinder. Though the players aren’t really all that experienced (at least the ones I’ve journeyed with thus far), I see a whole lot of potential for fun.
The experience might not last. Wayfinder’s population overall will never match my beloved Khyber methinks. But I think I’ll enjoy this little corner of Wayfinder that I’ve found while it’s there.
Who knows, I might even see you there!
