Destiny 2 – Festival of the Lost is underway. Enjoy Destiny’s take on the season by donning masks, and going on a bit of a spooky hunt with Amanda Holliday leading the way as you explore the Haunted Forest. The Tower is decorated in honor of those lost, and the Eververse loot season has been flavored to match. The Clan is currently at level 3 after our current efforts, but still has a few levels to go if we want to get maxed out at level 6. Hawthorne is who you want to talk to if you wish to contribute to the clan leveling, and definitely if you are planning on running content with fellow clan members.

The new raid bank pilot program.

Running of the Beef was a success!

And the events committee is looking for ideas for guild event in january. it can be a new event, old event, something based on the Blizzard/WoW calendar, whatever. Please submit the ideas to Syreyne.

Lots of new raid kills, including full normal clear on DoA for a Libertas guild achievement, and full clear of Uldir LFR from Noob Raid, as well as several heroic level boss kills by other teams.

MFN is on the imp side, we’ll do Halloween music in as well as Karraga’s palace and maybe begin Scum and Villainy if we have time left.
Conquest will be Death Mark this week.

Friday Nov 30. 9pm eastern time. Mega is back with Marcus. (Baby Break) it will be called…”Sema’s Gone to Voss” details to come.

The Witches Festival is still running though November 1 with a 100% xp buff and skull contain drops of items. The guild bank is currently stocked on creepy food and drink offerings to sample to get the achievement for eating one of each spooky themed item. So feel free to help yourself to a snack.

Murkmire DLC and update 20 launched last week. There is a new zone with quests, delves, and a 4-player arena to undertake. It is free for all ESO plus members and can also be obtained from the in-game store for crowns or earned with the Daily Reward log in for November. To earn it as a daily reward, log in and claim a reward for 24 of the 30 days in November.

The Mad King Thorn Halloween event continues until the 9th. Thanks to Disturbed Angel for running MFN while Dejara was off on vacation.

Goblin is still a preferred server, so the road to 60 buff is still up. 3x all XP, all activities, all jobs and classes to level 60. 70 is the current cap as a reminder.
