Last week was MEGA Galactic Star Fighter edition

We flew around planets and were learning how to do GSF. Max was the instructor.

The guild hit Level 10 in our guild level. Thats a lot of work and we’re proud of the team.

Deathstar Troopers The sunday night ops team beat the second boss in Dread Fortress in HardMode. They were working on it for 3 weeks. This is a big accomplishment for the team.

Update 21 will be out soon (no date yet) and will start off The Season of the Dragon. The update contains 2 brand new dungeons (part of your ESO Plus membership or for purchase in the in game store) as well as several base game additions. The base game additions include a new Battlegrounds map, PvP rewards, passive class ability changes, an update to the Guild Trader interface, and a Zone Guide system.

Feb 15. The Post Valentine’s Day Calamity. Get your characters refreshed, as on Feb 15, characters over 180 days offline will be removed including officer characters.

FFXIV European fanfest also starts on February 2nd at 10am central european time. Expected annoucements include a new race and a new class

Our server, Goblin will be transitioning to the new data center, Crystal. At this time, no plans of moving.

We don’t have plans of moving at this time, and transfers to and from the server have been announced as “affected players will be offered transfers”. Nothing beyond that.

So, if you play with AIE on a different server that will remain in Aether, transfers might be available. More info passed along when we get it.

House needs to be redecorated. Any aspiring interior designers that want to help out, reach out in the discord channel.

As for in game news, the new class Blue Mage is now live. If you are looking for a unique experience in FF14, this new class is like no other. With a permanent open world monster experience boost, this class levels quickly, and you’ll be busy collecting all manner of game breaking abilities, which is why you won’t see these classes in any normal group content.

We also have Valentione’s day coming up very soon, so please look forward to it.

Mirror of Discovery is live and the 9th Anniversary is going on. By getting enough anniversary vouchers, you have a chance of getting a Tier 6 Vulcan Scout ship from Q

Anniversary event for STO. Omega particle collection, and a daily quest that ends in a free ship.

And with that, let’s get back to Syreyne and find out what’s going on in World of Warcraft.
