    • 26 days ago we stormed head first into a game most of us had only a heard briefly about not weeks prior to launch. And maybe it was the lack of expectations, maybe not, but Ginnunga has fallen madly, deeply, truly in love with Black Desert Online.
      Of our current in game roster of 50 we're 47 actively playing, and the remaining 3 are prohibited by rl reasons. The level of activity has seldom been this high, and we're recruiting to further bolster our ranks.
      Besides the myriad of activities like leveling, gathering, producing boats, fishing, farming and what not, we've of course gotten our fair share of bloodshed. We have been, or are, in open war with NihilumRed, Rain, Addicted and Nesert Diggers to name a few. We've gotten badly beaten at points, and slaughtered migmugs in droves at others. Our years of PvP experience helps us to keep a cool head when the going gets tough, and lets us evaluate every battle to further hone our skills.
      One of the major driving forces behind our PvP team is Ginnungas most recent addition to the team of officers, Chimp. His unparalleled playing time has secured him a spot among the servers highest leveled rangers and he's constantly either fighting or schooling the rest of us in how to fight.
      In addition he's hosting a regular Sunday night brawl at a local arena. We share tips and tricks for PvP and once we're fed up with the apes squeaking we duke it out Ginnunga-style. Here's some recent screenshots from the last brawl, which was by all intents and purposes a huge success.


      We'd also like to welcome our latest band of recruits: Laowai, Skullcrusher and Handsken. We hope they don't go bananas and look forward to having them as a part of the Ginnunga family.
      If you're interested in applying to Ginnunga feel free to contact SinfulSaint, Fastas, Cogency or Wigglr in game for a chat.
      Until next time, see you in the desert!

    • It's been a busy few days indeed for Ginnunga since the pre release of Black Desert Online. Some have been leveling like mad, while others have taken the time to enjoy the scenery and spent most of their online time pulling cods out of some lake. To each his own.
      Listing all the things we've done the first few days would take way to long, but let's just say we see content in this game for such a long time that it's mindboggling.
      And to once again play a game with open world pvp has its advantages. Messages like this, for example:

      We didn't just kill him. We didn't make him respawn. We didn't tickle his bum and called him Susan. We "forcefully slaughtered" him. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE A GAME WHERE YOU FORCEFULLY SLAUGHTER PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF GINNUNGA?!
      Ok, fanboi moment over.
      All in all we're having an absolute blast in BDO, and everyone who doesn't try this glorious game are missing out.
      Sorry to keep this short, but I got catfish to kill, migmugs to plow and cats that need feeding. Virtual cats... Yes, THAT'S A THING!
      Sinful out.

      Slow summer

      By Ernesto, in Guild News,

      With no MMOs out currently that interest us, we are spending our time playing various multi player games such as Heroes of the Storm, Battlefield, Marvel heroes and World of Warships.

    • The yearly gathering will take place in Stockholm, 17th-19th of July 2015. More details on the forum.
      If you are not a guildmember and wish to attend, contact Ernesto on the forum and we will sort you out.

    • Albert Einstein once defined insanity as "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". It's obvious he wasn't familiar with our Nordrassil chapter, and he was also wrong.
      Ginnunga has played a plethora of games, with varying degrees of persistence and success. One chapter which has defied the norm has been the crew on the server Nordrassil in World of Warcraft. Since late 2007 they've kept fighting the good fight. Year after year, expansion after expansion, they've been trudging along. Slaying dragons and demons at a enjoyable pace.
      The calm was somewhat interrupted with the launch of the latest expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Returning players were welcomed back, and quite a number of ginnungans who hasn't touched WoW in ages and who's never played on Nordrassil, picked it up and filled the ranks.
      The infusion of fresh hungry buttonpushers inspired the leadership. There were initially plans to not raid at all this expansion, but suddenly there was a change of heart. Guides were being posted, a training initiative instituted, requirements set and preparations being made. Ginnunga was going to war.

      Random picture of a dwarf for Coots.

      Normal mode of the first raid instance, Highmaul, was cleared quickly and the progression on Heroic commenced. Boss after boss fell before the might of Ginnunga, right up to the final boss of the instance, Imperator Mar'gok. The fight is on quite a different level and length over the other encounters in the instance, which took its toll. In fact it took a total of 56 wipes spread over 7 or so raids.
      It's unclear if Imperator Mar'gok simply fell over due to boredom or if the relentless assault became too much, but a mere two days before the launch of Blackrock Foundry he finally died.

      Dead, deader, deadest, Imperator.

      The accomplishment earned our brave heroes the achievement "Ahead of the Curve: Imperators Fall", a sign that we're almost certainly not completely useless.
      Kidding aside, well done to each and everyone involved. It was a challenge, and you stepped up. We can now look forward to Blackrock Foundry, where Blackhand awaits! With some effort we should clear this a tad quicker, giving us time for some mythic content.
