News of the Servants of the Shrub

@HolyShrubSOS the brand new SOS Twitter

Its been a long time in arriving but the Servants of the Shrub now has an official twitter.  We are going to be exploring the usefulness of this new medium of Shrubby information flow over the next few months and its ability to enhance the community experience.  The first use will be to update everyone on lostkangaroo's and Gunslinger's exploits at the guild summit March 4th - 6th. Its going to be a good shrubby time at @HolyShrubSOS.

SOS Invited to attend SWTOR GUILD SUMMIT!!!

Congratulations Shrubbites!

The Guild has received an invitation to participate in the Guild Summit announced by Bioware coming up in March!  Topics for discussion and presentation are being formulated in the following thread:  http://oftheshrub.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1200&start=0

This is a very prestigious achievement for our small community, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication the High Council (and many others) have put into achieving guild recognition.  As an example, there were 79,085 guilds registered at launch according to Massively: http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/12/22/the-guild-counsel-guild-life-in-swtor/

That is the amount of people who can fit in Texas Statium...  The Shrub smiles upon us, brothers and sisters.

Republic Faction has a new Council!

The Republic Faction's votes have been counted, and there is now a Council available to answer questions and administer that Faction's side of the Shrub.

Congrats to Strife (Guts), Reddkatz (Tisara) and Bluejay (Jei) on their election.

There will be plenty of other opportunities for any Shrubbite who would lead fellow members in the name of the Holy Floating Shrub!  Start now!  Organize Flashpoints/Operations!  Start premade PvP teams!  Take up the initiative and show your fellow guildmates the Shrub resides within you!

SWTOR Devs Announce Guild Summit this March 4-6 in Austin, TX

A very interesting community friendly move on the part of the SWTOR Development Team, there has been announced a "Guild Summit" coming in March.  It seems there have been guilds invited already, but there is a guild "application" to attend available through the main site.  Because anyone attending this event would represent the Servants of the Shrub as a whole, and not individual factions (of course we don't know how many guild leaders could attend as a group), I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention, and for the Guild High Council to discuss whether to apply and whom to send.  Applications are open through February 10th, so it needs to be discussed soon.

"In case you’ve been hiding under a sand crawler all day and missed it, BioWare made quite an announcement today – the first ever Star Wars: The Old Republic Guild Summit!

In what promises to be the event of the season – catering specifically to the needs of the guild leadership community – BioWare is opening up their Austin studio to allow guild leaders from across the globe to come together to give their input and feedback about the past, present and future of Star Wars: The Old Republic!

TL;DR: First thing’s first. If you’re the leader of a guild in Star Wars: The Old Republic – no matter the size, shape or style – BioWare wants you in Austin! Obviously there’s a finite amount of space available, so be sure to head over to fill out the application ASAP!"

Magenta Crystal possibly rarest item in the game!

An interesting tidbit for the Artifice profession was dropped into the forum today regarding the rumors going around about the famed Magenta Crystal. Apparently you can forego feverishly Reverse Engineering in an attempt to drag up the little gem because it ain't popping out of that purple item.

Georg Zoeller wrote: "The Magenta Crystal does in fact exist, but it is not acquired through Reverse Engineering. At the present time, it could be classified as one of the rarest items in the game.

While I am not going to give any more information on how, where or from whom it may be acquired, I want to debunk the idea that you have to reverse engineer endgame gear to get it so people don't do stuff they regret."

So... Georg takes us from one obsession to another. If its the rarest item in the game, WE MUST HAVE IT!!! Go forth, Shrubbites, and seek the magestic Magenta Crystal!
