Welcome to episode #262 of the the podcast celebrating the Alea Iacta Est gaming community, the die has been podcast. This is Mkallah: To my left is Tetsemi: – (Spreadsheet joke here). And, that voice you heard at the beginning of the show is our brand new third chair, Mewkow! (Mew, say hi and put in a catch phrase here) This week we are joined by special guests Joe from Your Wow Money who is here to talk to us about making bank in Legion. Welcome!

Ok, we’ll be chatting with Joe shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news…

AIE News

Don’t forget, the AIE Guildhall will be happening at the Hilton during Blizzcon, November 4th and 5th at the Anaheim Hilton. Stay tuned for more details as they are released.

Legion, AIE has lots of raid teams – and they’re looking for raiders. Check out the Team Recruitment forum and the Free Agent threads to see who needs raiders and when the teams are running. Also, feel free to use the #LFG channel in AIE Discord as well.

Nevermore, Allanya, and the AIE events committee (I am not a committee) have some fun planned for October. On the 17th, there is Mathnauggs’s Merry Murloc Masquerade – 9 pm server at Gallywix. On the 29th, Nevermore & Allanya are hosting Harry Potter Trivia at Hogwarts 2PM server, classrooms to be announced later. And, join Alachaas for the RUnning of the Dead, time and location to be announced.
We are always looking for guildies that want to host in-game events for AIE! There are so many different aspects of World of Warcraft to base your event on, including:

Normal/Heroic/Mythic Legion Dungeons
World Quests
Pet and Mount Collecting
PvP Battlegrounds and Arenas
RolePlay Gatherings
Scavenger Hunts
Transmog Contests
Unlock Achievements
Visit the Darkmoon Faire
Level Professions
Grind Reputations
In-Game holiday themed activities and MORE!

If being an AIE Event Host sounds like something you would like to participate in, please contact Officer Nevermore. She’s available if you need help at any point during the process of planning your event!

Oh, and just a reminder, the Warcraft movie will be available to purchase on Tuesday, September 27th in most locations.

Patch 3.4, Soul Surrender, is coming this week on Tuesday, September 27th.
Main Story Quest progress (Finish Final Coil T4 first!)

Continuation of the Scholasticate quest line
New Raid wing inside Alexander: The Creator (Final wing)

Patch 3.45 preview

Also, rumors abound of the FF14 officer team potentially stealing the Mandatory Fun night formula for their own uses.

If you’ve bought GW2 please jump into the game. There isn’t a subscription fee, so once you’ve bought the game, the only money you need to spend is to buy expansions when they come out. And speaking of expansion, with Heart of Thorns, it’s a good time to help work on unlocking the guild hall. If you bought Heart of Thorns you can log in and get a free level 80 character.

Also it is a good time to unlock season 3 chapters. If you are returning to GW2, please also hop into the AIE Discord Server and hit the #GW2 channel and join the discussion!

There is now a Mandatory Fun Night – Weekend Edition, hosted by Arv on Saturday’s from 5 to 9 server time. If interested please reach out in game or respond in the forums –

RRF Captain Cybyl’s Star Trek Online News Summary for week ending 09/25/2016:

1a. Star Trek Online has launched for PS4 and Xbox One featuring multiple story arcs directly from the Star Trek movies and episodes we’ve come to love. However, both console and PC players have raised the question about how does 6 years of episodes relate to each other, the TV series, movies and the Kelvin timeline split in 2009.

1b. To answer this burning question, Cryptic Studios posted ‘Star Trek Online Timeline’: a viewable and downloadable, high-res graphic chart which interconnects the story arcs to the TV series, movies and 2009 Kelvin timeline schism. This is a highly recommended, detailed overview presentation which puts the amazingly vast Star Trek universes into crystal-clear perspective. The ‘Grand Scheme of Things’ never looked so good!

2. Yet another backstory, ‘Fleet Station K-13 Returns’, has been posted on the website blog with confirmed hints of missions to come. Not only has a star base that disappeared into a temporal anomaly been rediscovered, but is now available to be used a playable, second fleet holding. The story is also an intriguing and poignant must-read. Again, I shall refrain from spoilers.

3. For lockbox collectors who wish to cash in on their stash big time, take note: From Sept 22, until Oct 10, lockbox master keys will be sold in 20-key bundles.

4. The usual reminder: The Fleet’s Starbase is still seeking contributions of materiel and duty officers. Do your part by checking out current donation requests in the Fleet holdings tab in the Fleet’s in-game menu.

5. Once again, please check out further news, backstories, patch notes, forums, commentary, etc., at the Star Trek Online website .

Tetsemi – ProTip – Always check WQ’s before posting gems. Wondered why Queen’s Opal and Azsurite along with Ore went through the roof. 765 BoP Recipe requires Azsunite Pendant (1 Queen’s Opal, 5 Azsunite and 1 Sangarite)

Tetsemi Q’s?

Gems – Deep Amber (green q), Chaotic Spinel (green q) and Shadowfury Ruby(blue q) all seem to be below market consistently. Intentional due to glut or just willful ignorance of the market price?

Ore – Feels like too few gems for the amount of ore, does this go up with higher levels of JC (prospecting) or is it just gem chips all day every day the new normal?

JC gear, right now, feels like too low level for the mats required, especially with the Obliterum requirement to raise from 815 to something more appealing for Mythic+ and Raid geared folks. Curious if the market shifts once we get the 800 JC recipes?

And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Joe for joining us.
