[The Following as stated by guild leader Tsunami Rain who is a large part of the guildwarsguru community]
"Favorable Winds is a mixed PvP/PvE guild that is centered around helping PvE players become better PvP players. We do not allow elitist to take part in our guild (PvP an PvE elitists) as we feel that they do not contribute much more than just idle talk. We will help those who are willing to PvP hone their skills and get better as long as they have the resolve to do so. We believe that growth in PvP is only limited by the individual's resolve to get better.
Although we are more PvP oriented, that doesn't mean that we condole playing PvE. In fact, I myself am a farmer and I promote PvEing through my farming guides. We achieve a balance of PvE and PvP in our guild by hosting "PvE Days" which are days that we set aside our PvP equipment and go out and have some fun in PvE. This includes playing through different chapters to progress PvE characters, capping skills, furthering our titles, etc.
Our main focus in PvP is to play GvG. Favorable Winds has a core team that GvG's on a regular basis. However, by having core GvG team it doesn't mean that we leave our less experienced members out. We encourage our less experienced members to learn different professions and to take part in GvG along-side our core team.
Although we mainly focus on GvG, we also like to experiment in Alliance Battles, Team Arena, and Heroes Ascent. We have come up with unique builds such as "Ghetto Spike", "Starburst Spike", and a unique Passive and Agressive Trapping build for AB. We love to experiment but that doesn't mean that we don't love to run ballanced builds. In fact, we love our glad points and we practice our skills and differentbuilds in RA and TA when not GvGing.
We help our members learn more by offering "PvP Profession Days". These are events where we take a look at a specific profession and we go over it from top to bottom (ex. what are good builds, why this profession is effective, skills, equipment, tactics, etc). At the end of the lecture we take our members into various areas to practice different aspects of the profession (ex. for ranger we would practice interrupting, kiting, etc).
Although it seems like we require our members to be active all the time and be willing and able to play when needed, we tend to be a lot more relaxed than most guilds. We understand that people have obligations and that real life comes before Guild wars. Our relaxed sense is what sets us apart from most other guilds. So if you can GvG here and there we're happy. You may not be a core GvG member but we're more than happy to let you GvG whenever you like.
Although we are still considered a new guild, we are working our way up and we intend to stay there.
Thank You for taking interest in Favorable Winds [ Gust ]"
