TSW Issue #12 is going to be dungeon focused, there will be changes to how Lairs work, and tokens will get consolidated.
Keep up to date with TSW on the forums, I mean seriously, who doesn’t want to see “Roaming bands of motorcycle bee gangs in Kaiden!”
The fine folks in our Final Fantasy guild are hard at work on the Henry and Steve Airships! As of August 14, Henry is at Max Level and brought back enough Empty Clusters to open up the schematic to make the Level 3 Aetherial Wheel Stand !!! At last report, they still need to collect the Deep-Red/Deep-Green Clusters that will be needed to make the inks to make the buff wheels + need him to bring more Empty Clusters to unlock the schematics for those. But, they are well on the way to start making/having level 3 FC buffs!! Congrats, guys, on the hard work. And thank you, Khaebil, for always keeping us posted on the forums and keeping the Google Doc updated with the current needs for the airships.
Pet battles are coming to Final Fantasy! Yeah, that’s right, some game found out what a huge fan I am of all the pet battles and put it in the game! Okay seriously, this was an april fools joke that the team decided to put into the game. And before you start worrying that it is going to be just like warcraft’s, well you are much mistaken! It’s more of a melee fight where all pets enter, one pet leaves. This was announced in the recent live letter and I have an official forum post to back this stuff up! eee!!
