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

Destiny 2 – Into the light event has started, it’s a free to play for everyone Horde mode with reprised weapons. Also 2 older exotic weapon quests have been revised and re-released. Whisper of the worm sniper rifle and Outbreak Perfected Pulse.

Fun night has moved to Sunday officially.

Guild Event on Monday where Raid Team Kiddie Aggro helped about a dozen guildies kill Heroic Fyrakk, final boss of Amirdrassil for the Ahead of the Curve Achievement. Players also got a short quest to unlock a Fyrakk appearance for their Dragonriding mount.

With the new patch on Tuesday, the three Dragonflight raids will take turns becoming Awakened, rotating weekly. Awakened raids will be harder, drop improved gear and a token, Antique Bullion, that can be used to buy weapons and other items as well as a Jigglesworth Sr mount. Completing all three raids awards the Voyaging Wilderling Mount and Awakened Hero achievement.

The eight Dragonflight dungeons have been revamped to Mythic level. In a helpful change for many players, the timer is being removed for level 0 to 10 mythics.

Players will be able to design their own personal tabards, thanks to a new quest that starts in Valdrakken.

For housekeeping, use up those catalyst charges on gear before they reset on Tuesday and spend any flightstones. One good option is to buy rep tokens from the various factions, which are account bound. Unspent flightstones will turn into gold.

If you are interested in the War Within Beta sign-ups, it’s here –

WoW Classic
Cataclysm pre-patch drops on 30 April, with Cataclysm starting on 20 May. We are all hoping that the PTR is not indicative of the state of the game, as it hasn’t been very stable. They have also released a roadmap for Raids during Cata, and the pace seems to be very accelerated. If they stick to this roadmap, the final raid will be out in January of 2025. It appears that they will be rolling things out every 3 months, which for those of us who haven’t played previously, seems kind of fast.

The scenarios of Zelazane’s Fall and Operation Gnomeregan are out, and they give 2 toys, a Darkspear troll costume, and a Gnomeregan Gnome costume. You only need to do 1 of the scenarios, and you get both toys.

Season of Discovery is in Phase 3, and the level cap is now 50. I know several guildies are enjoying it. Beyond that, I haven’t been in it recently.

And Hardcore Classic now has self found mode, it is unknown how many people are taking advantage of this. When you create a character in Self found mode, you have no access to the AH, Mail, or trading at all.

We won another planet during this past week of Total Galactic War. In fact we won two planets, since our fledgling guild on Shae Vizla (or is it a guild of fledglings?) also won a planet once our victory on Star Forge was assured.

This week’s MFN was a celebration of the TGW win, a distribution of prizes for everyone, and an early-to-bed night. TGW is good fun, but it does take some recovery time.

Don’t forget Warzone Wednesday. You never know which faction or which level range will be playing, so stay tuned to discord.

Friday Fun this past week was a rousing game of Git Some Fun (GSF). If you want to see what Galactic Starfighter is all about you can watch the VOD at Warning: Possibly not for the faint of heart.

Talk about the FF16 collab.

FFXIV Dawtrail Performance Benchmark dropped yesterday and will be updated to correct lag/graphical glitches that are already fixed in the upcoming game but had not been back ported to the Benchmark engine.

We are currently taking advantage of the anniversary event by clearing trials and doing world boss kills for loot boxes. After we have our cake of course so we get our event tickets.

Kraemer has all of the mundus stones and crafting stations currently available at his primary residence. Feel free to stop by to use them if you need to.

The next chapter expansion, called Gold Road, comes out on June 5th for PC. We are looking forward to exploring the new area as well as the changes to some of the base game systems when it comes out.

Alea Iacta Est Classis, our Federation Fleet, has finished upgrading all Fleet holdings. We continue to enable ways for our members to earn Fleet Credits, but all items, ships, and bridge officers have been unlocked!

Alea Iacta Est Honoris, our Klingon Fleet, is working on all holdings with the focus currently split between the Starbase and the Spire to unlock fleet consoles.

STO’s current event is celebrating First Contact Day! Earn the Photon Rifle with 14 days of progress earned by running one of two TFOs or a Patrol. Along side this, players can create Delta Recruits. This special type of character will unlock multiple items and marks for your entire account!

Our video podcast, Fleet Action Report, hosts an informative show every Thursday at 10pm Eastern. We’ve got upcoming episodes involving a Proton Energy build, and the Delta recruits!

Also, our fleets host a Fleet Fun Night Mondays at 10pm Eastern. We will run TFOs, assist with difficult missions, help master ships, or just play alongside you. Come join the fun!

On 04/18 LOTRO will celebrate its 17th Anniversary. There will be a free gift tied to the event.

For the week of April 11th to the 18th the LOTRO store will give away the Universal Ingredient Pack x10 when you use code UNIPACK.
