AIE Summer of Love was officially kicked off in SWTOR with a special MEGA event. Not only that, but it was MEGA’s one year anniversary! Marcus entertained the crowd with trivia and prizes contributed by ElionD, Maellung, and Zen as we took on the Ancient Threat on Yavin IV. Many awesome screen shots were taken of us on the beach of Rishi. Check back later for screenshots of us by that vanquished boss….

The Season of the Dragon will continue with Scalebreaker DLC and the Update 23 patch. August 12 for PC and Mac and on August 27 for PS4 and Xbox One (announced at Quakecon). It will have 2 new dungeons as well as quality of life improvements for the base game. it features a prologue quest with the return of Sai Sahan, even if the manner of such return is still unknown. And dragons will be moving out of Elswyr in the future.

Checking out the new dungeons as a group will be scheduled for the first MFN after Scalebreaker launches. Our MFN adventures tend to vary between zone clears for Skyshards, random dungeon queuing, and daily quests for specific in game events depending on what the group wants to do.
