GREETINGS EVERYONE and welcome to the rebooted Get to Know Your Guildies (g2kyg) brought to you by everyone's favorite druid, Growliebear! To start things off, we are going to be getting to know our lovely morale officer Karensa!!


First off, what is your toon's name or what you go by in game?

How long have you been playing WoW? 
Since the beginning of time... (actually since closed beta)

What made you start playing WoW? 
I played Warcraft III, loved the lore, and had the opportunity to play the beta.

What is your favorite race/class/spec? 
Blood elf/Priest/Discipline pre-Legion

What brought you to Darkwind? 
During MoP, my raid guild fell apart, and I decided that it was time to devote my time to more productive pursuits out of game. I created a 'bucket list' of in-game experiences to accomplish, moved to a non-pvp server, and so on. I was around level 30ish when I met a couple of people from Darkwind, and the rest is history.

What is one (or more!) of your favorite memories from WoW? 
I once levitated down the elevator in BRD, aggroing Ony, and having her follow us up the elevator to wipe the raid before they fixed that bug. Falling off the ledge of every instance in the game, making friends and wiping the group; Life-gripping my pocket tank and wiping the.... I detect a theme here.

What is your favorite things to do in game? 
Collect ALL the things.... I love mounts, pets, transmog pieces, weird gray items... Oh look, I have an empty bag slot!

If Blizzard to shut down all servers tomorrow, what game would you be playing? 

Tell us more about yourself outside of the game! What are some of your hobbies or things that you do for fun besides play WoW?
I like tentacles, except not really.

What do you do for your job, or what would you love to do as your job?
I recently returned to school to pursue my dream of becoming a reference librarian.

Describe the coolest place you have ever visited? (outside of the game of course)
Langkawi, Malaysia is a grouping of islands that is one of the most exquisitely beautiful places in the world.

If you were a giant mega monster, what city would you rampage?
Newark, New Jersey for obvious reasons.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them!
It's too soon.

What is your favorite color?
Is this a trick question?

What is your favorite food? (or favorite thing you've ever eaten!)
Manoushe (a Lebanese bread)

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I would indulge more frequently in my love of SCA and rejoin the Rebel Legion.

What are some small things that make your day better?
A steaming cup of Earl Grey and brioche toast with homemade strawberry jam, a good run, Pusheen gifs.

What are some of your favorite TV shows?
Game of Thrones, Madam Secretary, West Wing, Star Trek TNG.

What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you?
I met my significant other on a dark and stormy night in Stormwind Harbor.

Darkwind 2018


The new year brings around more things for our guildmates to participate in. One of the benefits of being in a guild is to be able to tackle some aspects of the game with other people. More casual in nature, Darkwind will host them, and if you are free and want to come along, come and go as you please. It will take some time to roll these events out on a regular basis, so pardon the dust as we settle into the changes. These events include, but are not limited to:

  • TIMEWALKING EVENTS (Transmog runs, Timewalking dungeon nights, Timewalking raids)
  • LEGACY NIGHTS (Older Legion raids for quest and transmog acquisition)

Growlie will be reviving our GET TO KNOW YOUR GUILDIES, an interview-styled spotlight on members--new and old--to give our guildies more information on our Darkwind population. From these posts, you may learn some interesting facts about the people you see online.

Having a hard time finding others to run MYTHIC+ DUNGEONS? Liarawolf is here to help. Make sure to communicate with him, and he will do his best to coordinate with others, to allow for successful attempts at harder dungeon content.

Much of our direction moving forward has been solidified by the responses we obtained from our guild survey in October, so a big thank you goes out to everyone that took the time to answer our questions. To continue to provide an avenue for feedback, we will pin a FEEDBACK FORM on our Discord server, for members to leave thoughts, ideas, and responses to what Darkwind does well, and what Darkwind can improve upon.

Darkwind is always looking for people to help out with things around the guild, so if you are interested in hosting a trivia night, heading up some transmog/timewalking runs, or flesh out a current deficit, please let Shadram know! Lastly, if you ever have any questions about any of our existing events, the revamped #welcome channel on Discord has links for who to contact.

HERE'S TO 2018!

Shadram a Sounds like I need to head over to your part of the world and enjoy some homemade nuggets! Thankful for your solidarity...

This November, Darkwind is going to begin a month of gratitude. This year, we’ve decided that we would show our thanks to our guild mates in a tangible way. Has a guildmate helped you catch that rare pet you’ve been wanting? Anyone help you with an achievement or dungeon run? Has anyone offered an answer to that question that’s been eluding you? Have you been short a few 100 gold for an auction house purchase, and someone give you the loan? Or even something as simple as a “hello,” when you were needing some social interaction?

Darkwind is giving our members an opportunity to show our appreciation for others who have helped in some way. You can do so publicly, by posting a comment on our Facebook Thank-you Thread, a shoutout in the website shoutbox, or a comment on this post. If you have not joined our Facebook group, look us up! And add your name to our "Who's Who" document, so we can know who you are. Take a moment to show another gratitude for something—big or small—that they have done for you to make your life a little better in your time in Darkwind and in WoW.

Not only are we providing ways to say thank you on social media, but we are also providing a raffle for Pilgrim’s Bounty! You can privately send an in-game message to Shadram and purchase raffle tickets for another Darkwind member of whom you are appreciative. Make sure to write a short thank you message to the individual when mailing Shadram in-game, and notate whether you want the recipient to know the purchase was from you, or whether you want them to be anonymous. 

Each raffle ticket is worth 100 gold, and there is no limit to the number of people you can purchase tickets for. For each individual, you can purchase up to a maximum of 5 tickets.  In our culminating event, we will be sharing the raffle ticket messages, as well as raffling a few prizes, our grand prize being 100,000 gold put towards an Alliance Chopper! 

If you are available, come join us for our events this month:
Saturday, November 21, 7:00pm: Raiding with Pepe! Come kill raid bosses with us and Pepe!
Sunday, November 29, 7:00pm: Hide, Seek, & Raffle! Play Hide & Seek, and be present for our raffle, in order to win the grand prize!

I am thankful to be part of a guild where members have becomes good friends, and am thankful for the opportunity to share my gratitude for them. I hope you find something to be thankful for this month, as we move into the holiday season.
