Default Art of Gold

This was originally posted on the guild's forums, but after some rather positive feedback and suggestions to post this on Guru... here I am.

So I present to you "Throwing Our Money At GW2" - by Auron and Natanya



Location: North Kryta Province
Time: 4 hours
Gold Used: 2.8k exactly

The title came to me from reading many posts on several different forums about people trying to throw their money at their monitors to get GW2, this was our way of doing just that.

Here's a couple of different angles of the finished logo...

I made an epic Swastika shape out of a stack of Essence of Celerities; it was glorious.

A lot harder than gold because it drops in a random pattern. No consistency is QQ.

Wow! Thank you for sharing this. This was really amazing to look at. You might consider tweeting this to the guildwars twitter. This is the type of thing they would retweet.

How have I never seen anything like this done before (and how come I never thought to do it?)? That is amazing. I agree you should definitely tweet it to @GuildWars and/or @GuildWars2. They'd retweet in a heartbeat.

Well due to the popularity of people looking at this image I've had to find a new place to host them, and so now they are viewable again (big thanks to Karuna for making it possible)

Awesome, truly awesome. The best I've done with my gold is drop it in a trail in a dungeon or on someone's corpse. I would love to see more stuff like this, this is very cool. I tip my hat to you.

Edit: Took the second to tweet this to the Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 twitter accounts and they posted it to their pinterest board. Very awesome, and well deserved, I love what you did here.
