SWTOR ESCAPE POD CAST 378: VET MODE TACTICS
This week we continue our series on what it takes to get into Veteran content with talk of fight tactics and differences with story mode fights.
SWTOR ESCAPE POD CAST 379: 6.3 THE DESCENT IS DECENT
6.3 is here already. Bet you didn’t see this coming!
In Valheim, another possible boss night on a Wednesday night coming up in the next week or two.
The Board Game night is coming up on 5/6.
Don’t forget to take a look at the Nomads section of discord to keep up to date on these events and other shenanigans.
WoW met the goals to unlock Bananas and Daisy. You have to get them for free from the shop via the Battlenet launcher. They do not automatically appear in your collections in-game. To wear Daisy as a backpack, you have to target your Daisy pet (after summoning) and type “/beckon” for it to work. Once Daisy is riding on your back, you can summon another battle pet to tag along with your adventures.
Patch 9.1 PTR continues and there were several interviews with Ion H this week going over patch 9.1 details.
The TBC pre patch coming soon, and Burning Crusade 4-6 weeks later.
Many new players are coming to participate in the best 2 WoW expansions of all time (TBC and Wrath)… so come join us !
A content patch dropped this past week bringing a new flashpoint, a new story beat, and the beginning of a new pvp season. But above all that, it brought a new system called Galactic Seasons. Daily and weekly objectives award points, currency and rewards. You can spend the currency along the way or save it up for the big prize of a new stronghold on the fleet. This season is called “The Stranger from Kubindi” and starts out with a new companion named Altuur zok Adon. It is similar to a battlepass type system in other games, so you can buy progress as well.
But wait, there’s more! Double XP returns starting May 4th and continuing until May 18th. And, as is the tradition, there will be a new astromech in the mail for everyone. No matter where we go for MFN this Tuesday night, XP is sure to rain down.
And last but not least, join us this Friday for Master Mode Flashpoints with Maellung. This will be on the imperial side and will target those flashpoints that are required for the Aratech Ice Mission.
Our Thursday event heading into the fields of Bozja is on break until the next area is released in patch 5.55.
The digital fanfest begins on Friday May 14th and will be streamed for free and will reveal more about the next expansion, Endwalker, which releases sometime this year. This will include the reveal for the new melee class.
The guild has been clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses and being lead off cliffs by Dankinia
MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week they will be focusing on clearing a couple of public dungeons
If you play ESO on the new Xbox or Playstation, on June 8th the “Console Enhanced” modes will be released. The update provided improvements to reflections, textures, draw distance and more while giving options to select between Performance and Fidelity modes.
STO is running the following events:
1st: Tholian Trouble: A new event from May 4th to may 25th. This event hosts two updated TFOs, and rewards a new universal console that you can equip on any ship.
2nd: Bonus Dilithium Event: Earn bonus dilithium until May 4th; This is an in-game currency that can be used to purchase in-game items or traded for Zen which is STOs real-life currency.

Some of these rewards can be collected on any characters attached to the account.
7th: The Hosts of Fleet Action Report are inviting anyone and everyone to join them in-game on Monday nights after their show ends. They are planning on running TFOs that are attached to any current events. If there are no current events, they will run whichever TFOs Captain’s are needing.

The monthly dungeon and more has a set schedule, 2nd Friday of the month, so the next dungeon and more night is May 14th.
