WoW Classic
Craft Faire y’all! Sunday Nov 17th at 1pm Eastern.

If your WoW Classic main is caught up on professions, you are welcome to bring an alt to work on one! We have a bunch of guildies who like to help each other but that are stubborn to accept the help! And we do not have many Artisan level mats this time (due to limited gathering time, and max levels are using or selling them for mount money etc)

WoW Classic – AIE Craft Faire

For NOOB raid tonight, we are doing either the Anniversary Raid or the Time Walking Raid

Our operations teams are dipping their toes into the new operation – The Nature of Progress. Maybe now would be a good time to remind everyone that guildie Sakic is conducting a game-wide kill bounty contest for the last boss. The prize is a billion credits. Dates and other specifics have not been announced yet, but they will be on SWTOR Escape Pod Cast soon.

Speaking of operations, we have a new team that meets on Sunday nights on the Imperial side. Their team name is TACO (Total Annihilation Clearing Ops). They are off to a good start, but are still in need of one DPS. If you would like to run with TACO on Sunday nights, contact Albus via discord.

This past Tuesday, the guild celebrated the launch of the first episode of The Mandalorian by having a bounty hunter-themed MFN. We dressed up in our best mando armor and had a beach party (of course). Afterwards, we roamed the galaxy wreaking havoc on world bosses. Discussions of the show can be had in the newly reopened Star Wars Spoilers discord channel. We also had a little birthday party for guildie Thaan, sponsored by his two sons. It was a great MFN overall.

Every night is a super awesome crafting night, with the new Ishgard restoration project!
Lots of AIE folks helping each other out with the new crafting systems, and the XP bonuses are HUUGE!

Abo and crew are looking for more people to run on Tuesday and Thursday raiding, no experience required.

We’d love you to be in the FC, but if you are committed elsewhere but are on the Crystal Datacenter, you are welcome to come along.

There is a Fellowship and Cross-world linkshell, as well as the #ffxiv channel in Discord.
Fridays are all request nights, but we need you to make those requests. Making the requests earlier in the week helps us all out in scheduling the events. Things such as optional dungeon unlocks, Alexander or Omega runs, Treasure Maps, Gold Saucer parties are all great ideas. We know you have other ideas that we have never thought of, so let us know so we can all get together for Friday Fun Nights.

Oh, and join us for Copied Factory runs if you are looking for that 2B glamour. We can help you through the encounters, and you will have less competition to get that cosmetic.

Plus the raid is still totally awesome.

The Undaunted Event in game was scheduled to start this week, but due to technical difficulties it has been disabled. There is currently no eta on when or if it will happen this year.

11/21-11/25 +25% xp boost.

There is stuff in the planning stages no official dates of upcoming guild events. Keep an eye in the #lotro channel for upcoming events

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

Return of The Breach! This TFO (task force operation) event is back. You have until December 3 at 10AM PT. This event is working towards unlocking another free T6 ship on top of the standard event rewards, which is a Universal console.

They have added another Fed and KDF ship, the Strike Wing Escorts. And something that is a strike wing has to have a shuttle bay to hold you wingmen.

And as always, they are always adding more content, like about a week ago, they added three more patrol systems. Kinbar, Nassordin, and Zahl are the newest patrols added.

Fleet Holdings: The fleet is doing great, but as always can use more duty officers and a few other resources.

The colony is working toward completing Tier II in all branches, including the core.
Embassy is working on the Diplomacy Tier II project.
K-13 has been moving along nicely and is almost at Tier II across the board.

Lifetime subscription sale is still going. You have until November 21st to get $100 off. This brings it down to $199.99. And if you are going to spend a decent amount of time in STO, I highly recommend it as you will get your money back just on the 500 zen a month stipend. This is not counting the veteran ships, playable Talaxian, and so much more.

Black Friday is coming and there are always sales from zen bonuses, to zen store discounts.

And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Gerbog for joining us.
