A Podcast Reborn: A FFXIV Community Podcast (Brandon aka Old Man Franks, Meagan, and Rho) – NSFL

ARK: Sounds like the group in ARK is looking to attempt the final dungeon of the Island map, called the Tek Cave and Overseer. It may be happening while the podcast is going on even!

Enshrouded: A handful of guildies are playing Enshrouded and while it’s not really multi-player, but rather a co-op style game, feel free to ask in Nomads for others that may want to play along. If it does trend toward larger group open world features in the future AIE will likely start up a shared server for it.

Many are looking forward to early access of Nightingale coming in a few weeks. It might end up being another small group survival game we all try out. There will be no private servers at this point for early access but keep an eye out in the Nomads channel for ways to play together!

Noob Raid completed Timewalking Firelands – barely – with an all out final pull. Congrats and thanks to everyone who joined in the fun. One month in, Noob Mythics had a decline in interest, although people are asking in guild chat if anyone wants a mythic plus run. Let’s do more of this!

So Let’s Go Skating got AOTC last Sunday!

There’s a holiday bonanza this week. The Darkmoon Faire is up (grab those rep and xp buffs) as well as the Lunar Festival… and Love is in the Air begins Monday. All have things to do to complete the Trading Post. Gustyail is already rocking the Love Witch’s Attire … as a boy Tauren… because what’s better than men in tights? (see image) This month’s items are especially hard to choose between. The Fur-endship Fox mount was a must for Gusty. (What do you folks like best?)


WoW Classic
Having cleared ICC on Normal, we went in last night and hit it on heroic difficulty. We cleared the 1st wing with no major issues, and we killed Festergut and Rotface, and took 1 pull on Professor Putricide! We are also routinely clearing Obsidion Sanctum with 3 drakes for the mount!

A few things we have planned is a level 17 dungeon challenge, where 2 teams will go into Rage Fire Chasm, Deadmines, and Wailing Caverns, and the 1st team to complete all 3 wins a prize. The prize is just something little, like a bouquet of flowers from the vendor, but it’s all about the fun! We are playing different classes, and different rolls just to make it even more interesting.

We really wanted @Sema (she/her) to tank, but she is just going to DPS. No Idea what the status is on SoD, but next level round comes out on 8 Feb. and that is to level 40, so you will get a mount.

AIE Guildie Strykezone is on day 271(ish) of his mega project to watch all of Stars Wars. He estimates it as a 376 day process and he’s on track to finish around there. Check out his progress (and his completely cool website) at

MFN headed into an operation this week and handily completed Nature of Progress which is familiarly known as Dxun.

Friday night was flashpoint night AND Groundhog Day. I believe Stask saw his shadow and we will have six more weeks of war between the Sith Empire and the Republic. At least.

Free login campaign has started, and ends Feb 21st. You get 96 consecutive hours of play time for this round.

Valentione’s day starts on Feb 7th, and also ends on the 21st, so you can spend time with the holiday if you like. Looks like the goodies this year are a heart chair, and the love heart hands emote.

Moogle Treasure Trove round 1 has started, and will end on March 11th. Expect a second one to likely start afterwards, and will likely last until the expansion launches.

Maiden’s Rhapsody will end tomorrow at 7am PST, so if you are hearing this live, you have tonight to get it done. It takes a course of several FATEs to complete, so get started. This event is the one that gives you a FF11 looking samurai outfit that can be freely applied to any job.

We have been testing our skills in Trials. We have been working on one that is new to us, as well as going back and revisiting ones we can clear with confidence.

As we enter the final week of tales of tribute 5 we once again have a close race at top between Dankinia who is 1 game behind Malakyi with DPRoberts and Bashirra just 2 games back. Here is a look at the standings as of right now

Malakyi 6 2
Dankinia 5 3
Dproberts 4 4
Bashirra 4 4
Newtype 3 5
Kraemer 2 6

Now we get ready for the final week we will be having everyone play the players that are near them in the rankings so here is the schedule

Group 1

Group 2

Group 3

Good luck to all our players and thanks for playing Tales of Tribute 5

35% off legendary items until the 5th. We just missed the anniversary event. Admiralty event until the 8th

Coming to Bullroarer hopefully this week, first preview for update 39. In this first build are possibly some looks at some of the new instances and the raid. Elderslade will be getting missions to look at in this build. Season 9 of the legendary reward track begins on February 14th. Lastly, for those that have been waiting with your lotro points to pick up the River Hobbit bundle, it will be arriving in the lotro store next Thursday.

And with that, let’s get back to Marcus and find out what’s going on in Destiny 2.

Season of the wish… We went into the veil
Rivens wishes are out now. (Farming)
