V Rising server has an AIE crew continuing to hunt

ARK is live and between expansions

Fallout 76 has a spike in interest and will have a big update/expansion later in June

Diablo season 4 is progressing and looks fun

Stask is continuing to dabble in New World

In WoW retail, the Mists of Pandaria – Remix event is off to a roaring start and many Guildies already have multiple level 70’s. It’s a great way to level alts for The War Within (with Beta starting June 5) and there’s a ton of transmog, mounts, toys and pets to collect. Chen Stormstout’s Hat and Keg? Theramore tabard? Yes Please!

Saturday’s Noob Mythics became a Remix run instead, and Raid Team Kiddie Aggro did Siege of Orgrimmar last week. Alliance Team Hell Froze Over may Remix Raid this week.
Noob Raid cleared all but final boss Fyrakk in Awakened Amirdrassil on Saturday. Thanks as always to Dankinia our fearless floor tank!

Also, Darkmoon Faire is up and the June Trading post arrived with a heartbreakingly cute assortment of summer gear including the Pearlescent Goblin Wave Shredder (a flying surfboard), Water Blaster BL (gun) a murloc floaty belt, lots of swimwear and a rainbow beach chair. More tendies needed!

WoW Classic
Sema has an update!!! Cataclysm launched, with little issue, it’s been a pretty calm release. The guild has been busy doing content, and dungeons, and leveling professions. It’s fun to see these zones again, and the dungeons as well. Several of us on the raid team have never raided these raids when it was current, so we are looking forward to it! We have also been working on guild achievements, to get some of the better perks. Come on over to classic and have some Cata fun!

See Game Notes

We’ve been having a great time attempting to clear more difficult trials. We are not always successful, but even when the entire group joins Kini for floor tank practice we all have fun.

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.

Tales of Tribute Tournament 6 will be starting on July 1st and run for 5 weeks though Summer of Love. You can sign in the Tot channel of the AIE discord or reach out to Kraemer.

The complete edition/complete collector’s edition and the Endwalker/Endwalker Collector’s edition are 60% off on most platforms right now, if anyone was looking to start the game when Dawntrail comes out and wants to catch up now! Also story skips (skipping over previous expansions) and level skips (skipping a class from base level to level 80, with a full set of lvl 80 gear) are half off at the moment, if people want to play a specific class through the expac!

Newly updated Benchmark for Dawntrail to be released June 3rd with updated environmental lighting and shading to better reflect the major graphics update.

Our weekly FC gathering has been postponed until a couple weeks after Dawntrail’s release to allow people to play MSQ at their own rate.

Multiple events going on in game at once at the moment, as most players are in a holding pattern until Dawntrail releases at the end of the month.

Federation fleet is still racking up provisions so people can continue getting fleet credits to purchase the special equipment the fleet holdings offer.

KDF fleet is moving along nicely with their holdings. Starbase is now Tier III closing in on Tier IV. The spire is working on unlocking Tier II. The Fleet Research Lab is almost completed Tier II as well. And the Fleet colony is closing in on unlocking Tier I for each of the branches, which will unlock a daily trickle of colony provisions for the projects.

STO has released new content this past Tuesday and we are back to fighting even more borg. And along with the new content release there is an event showcasing all the new content dealing with borg. The rewards are some that if you can, you should not miss. You will get a dimensional hypermass torpedo launcher, type 14 shuttle support squadron, 500 lobi, and 1 Epic Phoenix Prize token PER CAPTAIN on your account. So if you have 30 captains, that could be 30 ships. (Note: Phoenix prize pack ships are not account wide ships.) You can also save your epic token for when they do any phoenix prize pack event and bring back ship upgrade tokens as a choice to buy.

This week we got some news on what is coming for Update 41. Some of the highlights are double sided pvmp reward tracks with rotating quests that both sides will pvp each other over.

Players in PVMP can by choice have a bounty on them. New non-competitive crafting event. The lore-master, burglar and the hunter will be the main focus for class work in this update. We also got the news on the 2nd hobby that was teased in the Producer’s Letter. The new hobby will be bird watching. There are about 600 birds to be spotted at the moment, with possible migration depending on the season. Bird watching hobby is expected to be on Bullroarer within the next 2 weeks.

And with that, let’s get back to Sema & Max and find out what’s going on in SWTOR.
