Thanks to a great suggestion from KA raid team, we are opening up the Raid Team Guild Bank program to include one additional bank tab. This is only available by request of the raid leader(s) for each team. If you wish to be part of this wonderful service, please contact the officers.
Additionally, this is your reminder for those that are in the program to double check your rank permissions and team memberships. If us officers need to add or remove permissions, the raid leader(s) need to contact us and we would be happy to help out.
Thank you all for being awesome and have a great weekend!!
Are you prepared?! THREE DAYS until Burning Crusade Classic launches on June 1st!
New Server: Mankrik-US
We were previously on Pagle for WoW Classic but have since changed servers to Mankrik for Burning Crusade Classic!
Once you have created a new character and/or transferred one to Mankrik there are two ways you can be invited to :
* Type /join aielfo in game to request one if there is an Officer or Greeter online to assist you in game at that time.
* Go to the AIE Discord and ask in either the WoW Classic channel or LFO channel for an invite for your character name and someone will help find time to meet you in game for an invite.
The AIE Mounts program is back again! (Insert info from Lars here please)
We look forward to continuing our adventures together again…
THE DARK PORTAL AWAITS US, AIE GUILD!
The AIEMounts interest free loan program to obtain your level 30 mount is continuing in The Burning Crusade. Current details are being worked out but in the meantime contact Lars Gagner via direct message in the AIE Disord. Any donations to the fund are accepted for a possible expansion to be able to help members with loans towards epic riding and perhaps eventually flying mount training. Details about the program is available on the AIE Guild web site or directly via the URL https://bit.ly/aiemounts
This past Friday Marcus, Looci, Tabbytha, and Albus conducted the MEGA event “Where in the Galaxy is Sema San Diego”. Everyone gathered on Hoth, where the pirate Max the Graybeard spun piratical tall tales about where Sema might be. Players worked tirelessly ALL NIGHT to find the items needed to provide clues and Sema was finally found. The winner of the night was Velicc and everyone went to the guild ship where treasures from the guild bank were had by all.
In game news, the new Flashpoint is called Secrets of the Enclave and continues the story of Darth Malgus. He has broken his chains and wants nothing to do with the Empire OR the Republic. We chase his trail into the ancient Jedi Enclave, but only find leftover resonances of him. So far he has escaped us, but he apparently has gotten his hands on two very powerful relics. We don’t know what he is up to, but it can’t be good.
Join us on Tuesdays for MFN and Fridays for our rotating night of Master Mode Flashpoints, Hard Mode Ops Training, Achievements, and MEGA!

Fleet Action Report is looking for people to help with a PVP episode in 5 weeks. If you’re interested in helping, you can find contact information at fleetactionreport.com.
Guild activities continue as we get ready for Part two of the most recent patch. Teams are running Bozja, for their artifact weapons. Looking for treasure in all the right (and wrong) places on Map Nights. And trying to figure out if that pixel, yes that pixel, is really a safe place to stand on during an EXTREME raid on Eden’s Promise!
First two episodes of Living world season 2 are Free for a few days longer, log in, get them. If you play through them and do the new bonus meta achievement you will get fancy rewards. After completing 4 of the new living world bonus meta’s you will get your choice of ascended weapon. after 10, you’ll get a thing that you can turn in for en “end of dragons” (next xpac) legendary weapon precursor. Then after 16 you will get a massive 32 slot inventory bag, and when you finish all 24, the final reward is a legendary amulet and a title.
So far for the first 2 episodes, you just had to play through both of them, (no special challenges needed), Then do the following in Drytop: gather 150 things (50 each of wood, ore, and plants), do 10 events, open 20 hidden locked chests.
Jehdai assumes that all 24 will take you to the end of Icebrood Saga, so you will be able to pick up any episodes you missed, without having to buy them on the gem store.
The next two episodes should unlock on Tuesday after reset. (which means you only have about 2 days to log in and claim Episodes 1 and 2 for free).
The Buried Treasure Event has arrived! Available through May 31st.
— LOTRO (@lotro) May 27, 2021
Development continues on Update 30: Blood of Azog, and the new Yore of Azanulbizar ‘session/instance’.
Blood of Azog introduces a new story set after the events of the War of Three Peaks, introducing new characters and allowing the player to experience historical moments in Middle-earth’s history as Prince Durin and the Gabil’akkâ make ready to reclaim Mount Gundabad. Players can begin this story by talking to Glóin inside Annâk-khurfu in Elderslade, and it serves as a prologue for adventures to come in Gundabad.
Among the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain, studious scholars have kept detailed accounts of the history of Durin’s Folk. Within these lengthy volumes, there is the tale of the Sixth War of the Dwarves and Orcs, which ended with the Battle of Azanulbizar. Player will experience the momentous events of the battle as their own characters, but through the eyes of Hermáth Stormhammer, a hero of Durin’s Folk, as recounted in his written works.
And with that, let’s get back to Kini and find out what’s going on in ESO
The new expansion, Blackwood, and Update 30 come out on June 1st for PC and June 8th for consoles. Blackwood brings a new zone (including a trial, world events, delves and public dungeons), continues this year’s Gates of Oblivion adventure, and adds the new companion system. The new companion system is a way to get an NPC to fight alongside you. There will be quests to recruit them as well as loyalty quests and you will be able to customize their abilities, outfits, and more. Update 30 brings a new tutorial experience. Previously every new chapter brought a different tutorial which meant tenured players had to create a new toon to try it out and see that new story content every expansion. They’ve changed that so going forward everyone one will get the same tutorial and when you complete it, it will let you choose which expansion your character starts in. In mid June, the Endeavors system will be launched for all ESO players, no matter the expansion they have purchased. This system will bring new daily and weekly tasks that reward players gold or experience as well as a new currency. The tasks align with normal in-game activities such as completing quests, killing certain monsters, and harvesting materials. The new currency will allow you to purchase any of the currently available crown crate items without the randomness of opening a crate purchased for crowns and hoping you get the reward you want.
For MFN on June 4th we will focus on checking out the new area with a zone clear.
The game is buy to play, and subscription is ESO+ which will provide an unlimited crafting bag and double your housing and inventory storage.
And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Kini for joining us.
