Sweat drips from your brow and the dirty air blows around you as you catch your breath and stand your ground, staff in hand, crouched below the magical cloud from your ally warlock’s powerful spell. While your priestess character takes a moment to pause and heal, do not let yourself be distracted or complacent.
The heat of an epic battle is not the time to relax, grab a snack, answer the doorbell or freeze up, at your keyboard that is. Don’t put your character’s survival or your guild’s success at risk because your hands cramp up, eyes go crossed, wrists and fingers stiffen or your neck throb with pain after losing yourself in a legendary tale of good versus evil, scrounging and collecting, scheming and planning, and even creating and adjusting your character’s looks, outfit, and world.
Be proactive in your questing and remember to limber up before beginning any journey or mission! Codex of The Guild engages in several exemplary pre-battle stretches that can keep you strong, prepared and on the alert. Avoid mid battle cramps and freezing with this stretch break, inspired by our favorite feisty red headed priestess. Practice this Guildy workout before entering any Big Boss’ Lair or enemy guild’s territory to guarantee your best possible chances of victory and leveling up!
Strike a priestess’ pose, one hand at a time. Lift your hand above your heart, near your face, fingers spread wide and hold for ten seconds to get your powerful blood flowing again.
As important as it obviously is to keep your eyes glues to the screen while in the midst of dire circumstances and great adversity, it is equally important to give your all too human eyes a break every so often. Remembering this key factor, following Codex’s example of looking away from the screen during pauses and rest periods can help both you and your character regain precious lifelines. Just roll your eyes away from the screen and hold the off screen stare for thirty seconds.
Don’t let your real life face lose expression for the sake of your avatar, let that vivacity flow both ways by stretching your face muscles and keeping yourself alert with Codex’s time honored and highly professional gaming stretch pictured below. Create your own variation but remember that this stretch could mean the difference between vigilance and recklessness so stretch on great warriors.
Finally, get your upper body moving and primed for the ultimate gaming and questing experience by stretching out your arms in true Codex fashion. While our heroine is pictured below engaging in a captivating one-arm stretch, challenge yourself to safely stash that healing staff and stretch out both arms with a punctuating flourish.
By the time you have completed your super human stretches, your character should have regained enough health and energy for you to continue to the next level, the next journey, and dare I crossover and say the next gaming frontier. Prepare for your game experience to expand and increase exponentially with Codex’s stretch and prep routine. Empower’d yo!
