Fun with pixels

I got back into Guild Wars 2 again this weekend, after my friend teased me with the idea of trying to build the legendary Meteorlogicus. Nah, there's no way I'm going to play enough to gather the materials to do that (it would take months), but I do so love that thing.

Anyway, she suggested that I create some Doctor characters, and so I deleted two mules and made new characters, and here they are.

It was easy enough to get the coat for Doctor Noble, and luckily they had a sticky-uppy hairstyle; the sideburns aren't long enough, though. He's an engineer, which does mean he wields a gun (awww!), but for a medium armor character, engineer was a better choice than thief or ranger. He mostly won't be using a gun, though, opting instead of weapon kits (probably flamethrower or alchemy). I was especially happy to find that the game provides a long-streak-of-alien-nothing" body type.

It's difficult to find names that aren't already used. I wanted Ka Faraq Gatri for this character, but I couldn't get it. I finally settled for Wissfornjarl, which the First Doctor apparently used at one time, and means "wise old chieftain". This is the default clothing for a light armor mesmer, but I think it works pretty well for now. Sometime later I will get him the armor that will fit the character better. And notice that he's got Peter Davison's nice broad shoulders.

Anyway, that was fun. I would love to try to make a Ninth or an Eighth Doctor, but I don't have any more character slots and new ones cost real money, so that's the extent of my DW GW character art.

It was! And I'm having a blast playing them, too. Thanks!

Wow, Five's style actually looks pretty good there.

Yeah! I was disappointed at first that there wasn't a look that was closer to the Edwardian coat, but when I put this together, it just grew on me. I like the red collared shirt, which is so much like the one in the show, and the red piping mirrors the trim on the coat. I think this is a nice fantasy imagining of his outfit.

Oh man, I loved the first Guild Wars game. This makes me wish I had a computer that could run the second game.

These characters look awesome. :-) It's like they made that coat especially for Whovians. Now I'm imagining a fanfic where the Doctor is a wizard with bad ass armour.

I hope you can get a computer and play the game someday! It's really a lot of fun. I played the original version for a couple of months, but the second really added a lot and I played it for a year and a half. I've been really enjoying returning to it this week, and only partly because I get to kill monsters while staring at DT's or PD's bum. ;)

The underwater traveling and combat has to be seen to be believed. It's just a gorgeous game!
