On this episode of The AIE Podcast…

– WoW crashes, in a good way!

– Spreadsheets in space are shipping out

– The Jedis are getting explosive

– And we have Abovan and Bonroku here to talk to us abotu AIE in Final Fantasy ARRRR

All that and more coming up right now…




For those of you who just brought a number of new level 90 characters into the guild, but have no idea how to play them, don’t worry. Blizzard has published a number of “crash course” videos that give you a quick overview of one DPS specialization for each class in the game. You’ll find these on the Battle.Net site or in the link in our show notes.



If you haven’t heard, AIE Universal is moving to a new section of space, and time is running out for you to get all your junk over to the new home. They will be closing down the corporation headquarters in Shamahi, so if you have stuff there, get it contracted to Stu ASAP. Deadline is this weekend, so get a move on, rookie.



Arveshet is looking to put together a 16-man HM Explosive Conflict group this Wednesday, May 28th, at 8:30 Eastern. In addition to being a lot of fun, this will get everyone through the hardest part of the quest to get the Aratech speeder. If you’re level 50+ and want in on this, see Arveshet’s sign-up post in the SWTOR forums.
