Upcoming streams
After the AIE podcast, ESO will be streaming!
Kini and Sparrow- can you guys fill us in on the details? Sure. We are going to visit one of the two new dungeons released in the recent Wolfhunter DLC. The DLC itself revamped the Werewolf skill line and two challenging dungeons.

Just a reminder, we are now using the AIE LFO Community for invites, please see for information on how to join the community and request an invite to the guild after receiving your approved Umami application for each character.

Do you have a style, would you like to show it off? Gustytail and Syreyne are hosting a Show off Your Mog for Trial of Style. They will be organizing guild members into groups of 6 to run the Trial of Style. This is a great time to earn your 1st Place shirt for winning, along with currency to buy the transmog sets from the vendor.

We are setting times for Friday August 31 at 8pm EST, Saturday September 1 at 2pm EST and 9pm EST, Sunday September 2 at 1pm EST, and Monday September 3 at 8pm EST.

We encourage everyone to create groups any time outside of that however! And don’t forget, you need a shirt and tabard in your bags before queuing. You can always pre-create your mog sets too!

Good luck and see you next weekend!

Mandatory Fun Night this week will be on the Republic Side, make sure you join Tuesdays at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific to enjoy the fun! Conquest will be The Trade Emporium. Ops is Toborro’s Courtyard.

The stong hold is fully unlocked for our guild and has both a large arena that outfitted for custom huttball or team deathmatch, and a smaller arena for small group or duels.
There’s also a beach for chill guild parties!

The MEGA event on Friday was fun and well attended. We got a pretty big group in our new guild stronghold and played around with the two custom arenas and it was called Revenge of the Huts. Fun was had by all and everyone killed Max.

The next Mega event will be on September 20th with details to come. It will be announced on Working Class Nerds next episode or the next Escape Pod Cast.

Crypitc/Perfect World announced that coming this fall will be “Age of Discovery.” We will get to see many of the Star Trek: Discovery show story put into game. They even mentioned in the release they will have a new starting experience for captains wanting to create a Discovery Federation captain.

My guess is that it will be similar to the creation of TOS captains. They may also add in a similar system to those captains for bonus rewards that you unlock account wide.

The crystalline catastrophe event is going on for special rewards.

The fleet is still progressing on various holdings, but can always use more duty officers for the various holdings.

Other than that, I think we have had many distracted by a burning tree and fighting on the islands.

All is hunky dory. PvP activity is still at an all time high as we continue our holy war against TEST Alliance and their lowly mythical unicorn Russian renters alliance.

Starting today, August 26th, and ending September 17th; The Rising event returns. Celebrate FF14’s fifth anniversary as the Mythril Eye returns to search for the most fascinating of stories. Rewards for this event include a wind-up Cirina, one of the Au Ra from the Azim Steppe region, and fashionable earrings.

Guild Wars 2’s sixth anniversary is coming soon (Aug. 28). Anet never talks much about it’s plans but it is expected to have the traditional sales in the gemstore.

And with that, let’s get back to Dankinia and Sparrow and find out what’s going on in ESO.

(Kelseer) – Wolfhunter is live! Ever want to be a werewolf? Now is your chance as Werewolves have been updated to be more effective.

The recent patch that happened when the Wolfhunter DLC went live also added in a few other changes such as a new Battlegrounds map, some Alliance War changes, a new Skill respec update, and improvements to the Werewolf Skill Line. The Skill respec improvements are the change I was most looking forward to because it makes respecing more affordable. You don’t have to remove all skills and start from scratch, you can just remove the ones you don’t want and use those points elsewhere.

MFN happens every Friday around 9pm Eastern.

And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Dankinia and Sparrow for joining us. And don’t forget, after the show is the AIE podcast stream, this week they are doing:
