New Player Checklist
Welcome to MEGA! This checklist is meant to guide new members through some of the steps you'll take to get up and running.
- Once you get your invite, make sure to Represent MEGA. You do this by opening the guild panel (using the "g" key by default) and clicking the Represent button at the bottom of the screen.
- Each character on your account has its own representation. This means you'll have to remember to re-represent MEGA if you have multiple characters. Yes, we'd love for you to represent MEGA with all your characters. :-)
- MEGA does not have a representation requirement, meaning you are welcome to represent other guilds. That said, promotion through guild ranks will be based on your track record of representation. We want our members to be proud to respresent us!
- Use this link to connect to our Discord server for text/voice chat. Quick channel explanation... Public/Clean is our PG/PG-13 channel. Mature is our R-rated channel, though our guild restrictions on slurs and X-phobic speech still apply. NSFAnybody is meant for playing PvP, being obnoxious, etc. and guild restrictions still apply. Any other channel is assumed to be "Mature"-equivalent unless otherwise listed.
Guild Missions Checklist
MEGA runs guild missions on Monday evenings at 9pm Eastern US time (that's 6pm Pacific time). In order to join for guild missions, you'll need a reasonably-high level toon with a variety of waypoints unlocked. You'll be able to complete most of the missions on a level 40 or 50 toon, but some will require levels as high as 80. Guild Bounties require more waypoints than most other mission types. Try to have at least these waypoints and a couple around them. You can copy these and paste into Guild Wars 2 chat to get the clickable links.

We get a lot of questions regarding raids. Here's a few things to know...
If you are interested in getting started with raids, talk to Karaoke or Selara about your build, the gear you'll need, and our expectations. In general, you should be running a meta- or very-near-meta build, exotic or better armor with appropriate runes, ascended weapons with appropriate sigils, ascended trinkets (some exceptions may be made based on availability of certain ascended trinket stats), and top-level food (100/70 or 10% food, not 80/60 or 8% food). Exceptions may be made on an individual basis for training raids.
We classify raids into three types:
- Training raids are meant to help new raiders learn the fights. Training raids will typically include a number of experienced raiders who will teach mechanics and answer questions.
- Progression raids are meant for experienced, savvy players to learn new encounters. These raids may include significantly more hand-picking of players and classes than other raids given the learning curve of the encounters.
- Clear raids are meant to allow experienced raiders whom all know the fights to do the raid in a short period of time.
