Episode 53: Rise of Skywalker Trailer 2 Breakdown!

Marcus and Nick sit down with fellow AIE Guildees Beaux and Corvenas to discuss the most recent changes to SWTOR’s PTS and of course the new trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that dropped at D23!

September 21st is going to be the Nomads style raid on LotRO hosted by @MarcusB and @Maellung Arrowshield. Everyone in AIE that’s up for it is encouraged to download the game sooner rather than later and get ready to roll up a new Level 1 character to play with the group. LotRO is Free To Play so suit up!

Noob Raid is 6/8 in the Eternal Palace now.

Over 750 characters currently added. Around 900 we will look for some unplayed alts to take out to keep us to 1 guild as long as possible.

This just in

Send someone a special message in WoW Classic with AIE Guildie Grams!
A “Guildie Gram” is based on the candy gram fundraisers that schools organize for holidays like Valentine’s Day where someone sends a special note with candy or flowers to friends & teachers.

We love the spirit of community that everyone has shown in WoW Classic since launch. We want to continue this momentum going forward! There are a lot of reasons you could send a Guildie Gram:

* Someone went out of their way to help you with a quest you couldn’t have finished alone

* Thank someone for helping you with profession mats or creating an item you needed

* You heard someone was having a rough day and just wanted to make them smile

The Guildie Gram will include:

– Your personal message

– Savory Deviate Delight x 1 (A treat that turns you into a pirate or a ninja when you eat it!)

* Guildie Grams are able to be ordered by Horde members of AIE in WoW Classic on Pagle-US.

* They will be mailed 1-3 days after the order form is filled out and in game payment is received.

There are many reasons to spread kindness and positive messages with each other.

Think outside the box and send a Guildie Gram to some of your fellow AIE guildies today! <3

Tabards are encouraged but not required! All guildies are welcome 🙂

Location: TBD

We understand Classic is expensive to train talents and professions, so not everyone will have a tabard yet and that’s okay!

That being said:

If anyone *wants* to donate a tabard to be raffled off to AIE guildies that don’t have one yet, that would be awesome!

You can any tabard donations to Nevermore.

We have a release date for Onslaught and it is October 22. PTS is up and rocking. The community has really embraced it and is making a great contribution to testing and feedback. In Onslaught, players will be able to roll a Nautolan if they are subscribed for any amount of time between now and the release of Onslaught. If you are wondering what a Nautolan is, check out Jedi Master Kit Fisto from Clone Wars.

In the live game, September is the month of many pirates! The Pirate Incursion event will be running twice this month on Dantooine.

Guild MFNs are on Tuesdays at 9PM eastern and we alternate between Imperial and Republic sides, so everyone can come and play. September’s MEGA on the 27th is going to resurrect an OG mission to acquire the fabled Magenta Lightsaber Crystal. This is a shortish mission with some travel in between and we will be hanging out in discord and doing some Star Wars trivia as well. And who knows what else!

Also, New York Cantina is coming up fast on Oct 4th. A number of AIE people will be there, so if you fancy a night of drinks, AIEers, and possibly a little bit of game talk, you’re invited! For more info and how to connect up, jump into discord and ask.

The FFXIV raid team took down Titania Extreme, the first piece of “raid-level” end game content in the expansion Shadowbringers. This is an 8 player raid, which can be done after the MSQ for Shadowbringers has been completed.

Currently, AIE is running gear up nights Tuesdays at 9:30pm Eastern and progression nights at 9:30pm eastern.

No experience is necessary! If you wish to join us with more challenging content, drop us a line in the AIE Discord in the #ffxiv channel.

I’d like to add that we are interested in running level 80 map nights. To run maps nights, the first step is to… get maps. To get them organically, you need to be a level 80 gatherer, that’s miner, botanist, or fisher. They are an extra item on your gathers, and you can only get one map a day. Furthermore, you can have one map activated, one in your main bags, one map in your chocobo saddle bags, and one in each retainer.

Running maps can get you super rewards and fabulous prizes, especially when you spawn the “bonus zone”.

So, we’d love to help get maps up for map nights. It’s a super fun activity, pretty casual time, and a great time to be had by all.

The Imperial City Celebration event is happening now and the DLC for the Imperial City is now free in the Crown store for anyone who doesn’t own it or have ESO Plus. This is a PvP focused area with some PvE content and two PvE dungeons – White Gold Tower (ugh) and Imperial City Prison. During the event drops of Tel Var Stones, Key Fragments, and materials will be doubled and the chance of getting a Stonefire Scamp pet or the Soul-Shriven skin will be double as well. Also, as usual, double drops from all bosses within the Imperial City and the dungeons.
You can earn 2 event tickets per day (per account), by defeating the final boss in one of the dungeons, or slaying a patrolling monster or mini-boss on the streets of Imperial City or within the sewers.

And MFN is still going strong on Friday Nights at 9pm est.

EVE Officers are playing Wow Classic, @Huck is holding down the ship.

SNL still going strong. September 21 raid on Lotro. All you need is the client downloaded. The game is free to play. All are welcome. If you have questions contact either Marcus or Maellung, or post your question in #lotro channel on discord.

MFN Monday nights and all who want to learn to do fractals on Friday night at 9 eastern starting on September 20th. Fractals are a mini dungeon style with unique mechanics and design

And with that, let’s get back to Dent and find out what’s going on in STO.

Star Trek Online Game News
– Story Update coming September 10th, Awakening.
– This looks to be a continuation of Age of Discovery, but more in the current timeline(2410). Anthony Rap will reprise his role of Lt. Commander Stamets for this part of the story.
– New Task Force Operation(TFO)(A type of Dungeon or Flashpoint). Mycelial Realm. It’s a ground based TFO, bringing you into the Mycelial Network against a Klingon faction that is not aligned with the Empire.
– Five New Patrols(single player content)
– A New One Time Event that goes with the launch of Awakening. By running the new content daily(max 60 Progress Points a daily) you earn Progress towards getting a T6 Elachi Frigate.
