AIE is raiding on PC current content: Deep Stone Crypts.

WoW
Patch 9.0.5 and patch 9.1 content information were the major focus of BlizzConline for Warcraft.

Flying will be available just by progressing through the new covenant story and you will get a covenant themed mount as well. Ground mounts will no longer shiver with fear and will be able to be summoned in the Maw. Also, as part of the covenant story line, a new covenant themed armor set will be rewarded.

A new landmass that will be our foothold in the Maw will be uncovered, named Korthia, and what secrets of the First Ones does it hold?

A new 10-boss raid, the Sanctum of Dominion, will launch with the true Eye of the Jailer, the Tarragrue, Kel’Thuzad, and Sylvanas as raid bosses.

A new 8-boss MegaDungeon, Tazavesh the Veiled Market, will also be available at Mythic 0 difficulty during launch. And yes, it involves a bank heist, so Oceans 11 meets the Brokers? I’m in.

Torghast gets new layers and a new wing with new enemies and traps.

WoW Classic
Raiding in Classic continues with the United Orgrimmar team who are active each week.

During BlizzConline The Burning Crusade Classic was announced and it’ll come with the option to move forward to TBC, stay with Classic, or with a paid service, per character, keep a character in each type of server. We are just beginning to discuss how the AIE guild and UO will proceed, so keep an eye on #wow-classic channel on Discord.

SWTOR
It’s been a quiet week in SWTOR, with guildies recovering from Total Galactic War and spending some time on their Imperial Characters after going all out on the pub side in the previous week.

Patch 6.2.1, which was scheduled to be released last Tuesday, was delayed when Austin’s Bioware Studio was impacted by the calamitous weather events in Texas. There is no new date announced yet. Stay tuned.

Come join in for Mandatory Fun Night on Tuesdays. We alternate between Republic and Imperial sides each week. There are no gear or experience requirements, however, some activities do require a character level of 70. We will always let you know when this is the case. Even if you are just starting out, come join us in discord and listen to “Story time with Max”.

ESO
We’ve had several new members join and we’ve been helping them with training gear, leveling, and Skyshard farming during our MFN nights
We’ve focused on clearing zones of Skyshards, defeating World Bosses, and rampaging though public dungeons the last couple of MFNs

The Tribunal celebration in-game event starts on February 25 and runs until March 9th. As with prior in-game events, we will be focused on doing the daily dungeon and world boss quests as well as the public dungeons in Vvardenfell and Clockwork City for our MFNs during this time period to help guild members get as many of the rewards a possible.

The first DLC for the Gates of Oblivion year long event comes out on March 8th for PC/Mac and march 16th for consoles. The DLC is titled Flames of Ambition and will have two new dungeons. There will be a full reset of skill points and champion points when Update 29 drops, people may want to prepare for that.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

GW2
The next Dungeons and more night will be on the “Ides of March”

LOTRO
2/25 – 3/1 is VIP event boost, So on 2/27 we will be helping our kin members level up their toons
Monster Play has been quiet for the server so we will pause it as a guild until it picks back up.

There is supposed to be a new build to hit bullroarer this week

And with that, let’s get back to Kelseer and find out what’s going on in FFXIV

GAME NEWS
FFXIV has a free login campaign going until March 31st. So if your account has lapsed, come on back and join us for Map Nights and more!

On top of that, if anything we talk about today sounds interesting, FFXIV has an amazing free trial. You get all of the base game AND the Heavensward expansion. This is a ton of content, and it includes one of the best expansions and story lines in Final Fantasy, so do come check it out!

Patch 5.5
FFXIV Patch 5.5 Part 1 is releasing April 13th! This will be part 1 of the story leading into the next expansion named Endwalker. Part 2 will come at a later date between now and the release of Endwalker.
The antagonist of this part of the story arc has declared to us he is setting about recreating the Final Days, something as bad as it sounds. It’s an event barely remembered that happened in the distant past, and resulted in everything that has occurred up until now in FFXIV. While his plan has been set into motion with the appearance of ominous glowing towers around the world, we will likely see the fruits of his labor with the release of this patch.
The Nier Automata tie-in raid series will come to a close with the release of the final raid in the series.
Side note, as someone who has no investment in Nier, having never played the game, this story line has turned out to be pretty great. People who loved Nier seem to like it even better, so if you like Nier Automata
The final part of the Sorrows of Werlyt storyline, will be released with 5.5. This has been part of the “Weapons” Trial series, where we have fought the Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald weapon. Next up appears to the Diamond Weapon.
Before Part 2 is released, we’ll also get the next step in the “Save the Queen” content, which is both excellent story content and the way to work towards this expansion’s relic weapon. Come join me in saving the homeland of the Hrothgar!
Other usual suite of goodies, including a new dungeon, crafting updates, and more!

Endwalker
Despite having the word “end” in the title and some rumors going around, Endwalkers is NOT the last expansion of FFXIV, but the conclusion of the storyline that started in A Realm Reborn (and in 1.0 somewhat)
Usually FFXIV has an expansion quest line that has a satisfying ending, but has loose ends that are tied up in the .3 patch series, where 4 and 5 transition to the next expansion. Shadowbringers followed this formula as well. Endwalker will be unique however, in which the entire storyline will wrap up with the expansion itself. 6.1 will then start the next story arc.
The main story quest writer from Shadowbringers, “Natsuko Ishikawa”, is writing the story for Endwalkers as well. Every piece of content she has written has been great, and she always manages to top it, so I’m personally very excited.
We’ll be journeying to a lot of places that have been mentioned since A Realm Reborn but that we’ve never had the chance to visit, including the moon! While the moon may look similar to our moon, it’s actually the remains of a defeated god…so we’ll see how that goes.
The expansion will include two new jobs, a healer job named the Sage, and an unknown melee DPS job.
Sage is going to be “a Barrier” healer using Nouliths, a series of magical “things” that you control with your magic. If you’ve never wanted to be a healer because they weren’t stylish or cool enough, definitely give Sage a look!
Yoshida provided a very vague hint on the melee dps job, and the consensus of the rumour mill is that it’ll employ a scythe. Beyond that, we’re not sure. Some even speculated a Corsair job, like some kind

STO

SWTOR
Let’s get ready to RUMMMBLLLLLE!!

This week AIE in SWTOR is battling to win a planet. This meta-game is available only a few times a year and we are going all out. For perspective, AIE Guildies have put over 85m (placeholder number) points on the scoreboard, which is many times what we normally do. We are in the lead on our chosen planet of Ziost, but the second place guild has not stopped pressing, so neither will we! MFN, MEGA, Ops teams, as well as other organized and semi-organized activities were all geared and aimed toward this one goal. Every day play counts too, in any style and in any amount.

As for game news, there is new patch coming in a week or so, but who can even think about that. More about it later!

If you have a swtor character, log in, jump over to the pub side, say hi and possibly shoot a few things. Or throw pebbles at them. The week won’t be over until early Tuesday morning.

FFXIV
FFXIV Patch 5.5 Part 1 is releasing April 13th! This will be part 1 of the story leading into the next expansion named Endwalker.
In days long ago and almost forgotten, Hydaelyn nearly fell to an event called the Final Days, and those days are once again upon us. Endwalker releases in Fall 2021.
Endwalker will contain all new zones and two new jobs. The Sage, a healing class that uses barriers to protect their allies and can augment their magical attacks using a weapon difficult to describe in words but awesome none-the-less. A new Melee DPS will also be released, though we only have vague hints on what it will be. Current consensus seems that it will involve wielding a scythe in heavy armor!

AIE Free Company events in AIE continues:
Every saturday at 9:30pm eastern we’re still doing map night, where we dive into treasure dungeons for phat lewtz
Thursdays at 9pm eastern we hit the fields of Bozja to fight the Garlean Empire and empower this expansion’s relic weapons. If you havent started it yet, now is the perfect time to join!
A group is exploring Heavens on High on Sunday nights, the randomized endless dungeon released with Stormblood. If you’re currently making your way through, hit us up!

Small bug fix patch should be coming sometime this week

And with that, let’s get back to Dankinia and find out what’s going on in ESO.

GAME NEWS
There was a recent Global Reveal event to reveal the Gates of Oblivion year-long adventure. The adventure starts with the Flames of Ambition DLC on March 8th for PC/Mac and March 16th for Xbox/Playstation. It will have two new dungeons – The cauldron where you will be trying to stop a deadly ritual and Black Drake Villa where you are searching for a book.

What an amazing outcome for the first ever AIECon last weekend. We had over 18 sessions across the various Con tracks that were attended, viewed and reviewed by hundreds (or something like that since we didn’t track it all that close across all the Twitch streams, video views, etc.). By all accounts, it was a fun, lively event that spanned a whole bunch of activities we don’t get to do as often.

Big thanks to the team that spent weeks planning and organizing, promoting and running the event. Core team and game/track runners included, Sema, Looci, Marcus, Dankina, Corley, Gusty, Syreyne, Tetsemi, Albus, Velazarius, Bhock, Catavarie, Grebog, Duskmire, Fez, StupidGenius, Pelell, Maellung, Mew and many more who researched options, ran surveys, play-tested games and tools, ran comms, and kept the event going. Let them know you appreciate their work on this.

Also thanks to all of the AIE attendees and guests who joined us to play, hang out, chat online, promote on social, etc. Without you all it wouldn’t have been a con!

Here are some resources if you’d like to catch up on anything you missed:

Dual Universe Update

We have been hard at work developing new ship designs to sell to other players in the game.
PkhBasko has begun selling a warp shuttle and is recieving good reviews on it.
The planned cyberpunk style city is coming along and will see some design changes coming soon ™

Alioth Aerospace Expo for January was pushed back after the last major update allowing us more time to prepare our ships to be showroom ready.
A rework of one the Org’s original ships is underway to make it more viable to be sold to other players within the game.

Update 0.23 came to the game in December causing major changes to Crafting and Industry which have affected the way everyone plays the game.]

WoW

Noob Raid has restarted after expansion/winter break. We will be running LFR for the next few weeks so there is an iLvl requirement of 170 to join us.

Alliance update – Alea Iacta Est Virtus on Earthing Ring-US, will be coming up on it’s 2-year anniversary this March.

Recruiting

We invited our 800th character (welcome aboard Karn!) this morning, with two more invites approved.

We continue to get new people who are either coming back to the game after many years gap, are Horde friends checking out the Alliance side, or some people who are new to WoW or looking for a family friendly casual environment to play in. We had a new member join that found us through Frogpants (welcome aboard Yopper!). And Fez’s wife came back to the game after a year away.

Mythic runs happen weekly to help folks see content and gear up for raid.

Remember you can always find the guild officers in Discord in the #lfo channel or by pinging them @officers. You can always request WoW guild invites via the in-game system by searching “alea iacta est virtus”, even if there are no officers online. Just remember, you have to go back to Guilds & Communities (J) to accept the invite once an officer approves it.

For more updates please check out – https://aie-guild.org/blog/2021/01/aie-warcraft-alliance-update-10-jan-2021/

WoW Classic

Burning Crusade rumors, with a launch date before this summer vacation… seems distinct servers, so Classic will remain. Hopefully we’ll get solid information from BlizzConline in February!

Naxxramas is in full swing, the last raid of Classic

SWTOR
During the holidays we continued with MFN on Tuesdays and MEGA each month. We rang in the new year with not only our first 2021 MFN this week, but also the first Master Mode Friday Night of 2021. During MFN, we took on some world bosses that we don’t normally do which provided a chance for some guildies to see them for the first time.

The end of the year in SWTOR brought one last story beat that was the finale of a story that has been going on for essentially nine years. And with that, also came the seeds a new story. We have hints to go on and we think the new villain of the galaxy might be Darth Malgus. If it is him, it should be a wild ride. Malgus is a nuanced character who has been on both sides of torture and slavery. He has known unbridled power, but also love and loss. He has been a ruler and a rebel. There is a lot of speculation about who else might be involved and we are all looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

Tune in Tuesday nights for MFN and Friday nights for Master Mode Flashpoints and Achievements. And stay tuned for more info on January’s MEGA!

FFXIV

On Thursday, January 21st, patch 5.41 will hit and this one focuses on crafting. At least, the crafting for Ishguard restoration. The skybuilder’s ranking will complete then, so expect a mad dash to craft.

ESO

After a two week holiday break, the first MFN on 2021 happened on Friday night. We chatted about how we all spent the holidays while clearing public dungeons.

As usual, there was at least one death cause by gravity to make sure MFN’s for the year got started off correctly.

Now that the holiday’s are behind us, MFN’s are happening again.

January 21st at 5pm EST there will be a Global Reveal Event on Bethesda’s Twitch channel to introduce the 2021 Chapter and year-long adventure.

STO

We’re expecting a big announcement sometime soon in regards to the Anniversary event. Only thing going on currently is an Admiralty Event which increases EXP from the Admiralty system.

GW2

Next dungeon and more night is coming up on Friday, January 15th at 9pm ET

LOTRO

During SNL we stayed casual to end and start the year
We will be going back into PvMP this Saturday

2021 we will be trying to run more group content.
As guildies get toons higher levels we will try to do past end game going into current end game stuff

The next update is supposed to bring us game performance improvements

And with that, let’s get back to us! .

Thursday Night Bozjern (BOSH-jen) Front nights are still going on. Working on that resistance weapon? Just want to stick it to the evil empire? Come meet up at the FC house at 9:30PM EST.

Map Nights still continue to be profitable and fun. Grab your 80 (with all of the zones unlocked), your treasure hunting spirit, and some good humor as we meet on the lawn of the FC house at 9:30pm EST on Saturdays.

Patch 5.4 Futures Rewritten, has been previewed and scheduled to release on December 8th!

And for proof that the patch is on it’s way, we have the hype story trailer for the patch, right here. Check the show notes on aie-guild.org for the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybuvKVzVBT4&feature=emb_logo&ab_channel=FINALFANTASYXIV

If you are looking for more details from the Live Letter that explained all of these updates, well, you can watch the live stream on demand, but it’s all in Japanese, so unless you know the language, you will need to use the many translations are that are up on the FFXIV reddit page.

Of course, down in #ffxiv channel in the AIE discord, we always jump on the patch notes as soon as they hit to talk about the details of the changes that we see that may not have been covered in the patch previews. So, jump on down, and we hope to see you adventuring with us in Final Fantasy XIV.

STO
Fleet Nights are Sunday at 8:30 PM run by @Dent .

The projects are moving along nicely. Fleet Spire has had the very last project counting down. The fleet embassy had the last recruitment branch counting down and once it completes we will have the final upgrade for a tier 3 embassy to work on.

SWTOR
During MFN this past week, we completed the HK-51 questline with many Imperial guildies getting their HK-51 companion and a few getting their umpty-umpth one.
In the previous week, we ran an Operation on the Pub side.

November MEGA will be a Black Friday MEGA. Lighthearted and fun activities will abound.

The public test server is up and three new things are on there to try out and test: Login Rewards, a new Emote system, and a new Flashpoint. Log into the public test server to check them out and provide feedback.

Come see what’s going on ingame on Friday nights. Depending on the date, it could be Master Mode Flashpoints, Achievements, or MEGA!

FFXIV
Map nights continue to run Saturday nights at 9:30pm EST, meeting up at the FC house prior to rolling out. Maps, loot, fun to be had, just show up. Maps are not required to attend. Being level 80 and all of the Shadowbringers zones unlocked are needed, in case you dinged 80 prior to unlocking the “final” zone (spoilers, but hey, Shadowbringers has been out for awhile now.) Flying does not have to be unlocked, as we do have many folks with multi-person mounts now. If you don’t have an 80 yet, stay tuned as we do fill in level 70 and level 60 map nights from time to time.

Thursday nights, AIE is also venturing into the Bozjern (BOSH-jen) Front to help unlock the rewards from the new zone and progress though the story of the Bozjern Resistance take the fight to the IVth (4th) Imperial Legion. Again we meet up at the FC house, but at 9:30PM EST. Being part of a group is much safer and much more fun in this content. Hope to see you there.

The next live letter is set for November 27th, and people are predicting the release date of patch 5.4 will be December 8th. With that, a new treasure dungeon will be released, and more phat lewts for the taking!

ESO
Recent MFN’s have been focused on clearing zones of Skyshards, exploring delves and public dungeons, and killing world bosses.
We have continued the tradition of following Kini off cliffs and getting lost while searching for Skyshards.

Weekly MFN’s will be either zone clears, public dungeon clears, or dungeon runs until the next event.

Please feel free to raid the guild bank for items your characters might need.

STO
Fleet is still working on tier 3 upgrades for the spire and embassy.
There is an lifetime subscription sale going on now until December 10th. $100 off. So right now only $199.99

During SNL we did Harvestmath events and took advantage of the 25% skirmish marks event

The next Chicken Play Race is being planned for January
We will be going back into PvMP after the next update

PvMP focused update has been on Bullroarer (PTS)

And with that, let’s get back to Syreyne and find out what’s going on with AIE in the World of Warcraft.

GAME NEWS
Scourgebusters Event:
We had 23 people participate in the Scourge Busters week long transmog event in Discord, including one person from Final Fantasy!

Winners are:
First Place is Darowyn from the Horde with 6 votes and a transmog from the original scourge invasion!
Places 2-5 were a tie with 5 votes each!
Ari from the Alliance
Ulto Dee from the Alliance
Jason (Pycelle) from the Horde
Dazhnabog (Secondaid) from Final Fantasy

It was exciting to see a cross-game participate! Thank you everyone that joined in on the fun. The contest may be over, but the Discord channel is still up so go take a look at the awesome ideas everyone came up with!

Shadowlands Block Parties:
Gustytail is hosting a pre-expansion block party in Orgrimmar for the 2 hours before Shadowlands launches. Bring fireworks, extra pets, mog gear, and more! There will be parades, shenanigans, and fun! Bring anything you want to clear out your bags, old feasts, boozy toys, etc. Have you been to our events? Ever thought about helping out? Never knew what to do or who to ask? Now’s your chance! Gusty is looking for someone that has the time to host an equally awesome party for the Alliance in Stormwind at the same time! Flag her down in Discord and volunteer for fun!

Pre-Patch:
Speaking of Shadowlands, there are some pre-patch events going on now. Mostly, everyone is heading for Icecrown to battle the lag boss, I mean the party train….no really, the killing of the rares. They drop ilvl 100 gear, which is great for all those new level 50 alts everyone is making with the 16th anniversary buff. There is also a “new” world boss that drops weapons and has a super cool cinematic.

Wowhead has a really nice guide to help navigate the pre-patch events. Check it out on their website, or click the link in the show notes.
https://www.wowhead.com/guides/shadowlands-deaths-rising-prelaunch-event-scourge-invasions

#QuestforCoguild
Well, as you should know, we are present on both the Horde and the Alliance in WoW retail. But things are a bit unbalanced. I mean, the Horde has 11 co-guilds and the Alliance only has one. Let’s build up our numbers and fight the good fight in Shadowlands!

To make that happen, Blue Side is launching a new campaign, Quest for Coguild. We want to invite everyone to try out the Alliance side. Join us in Stormwind. Wear blue, not red! So pick up the gauntlet and share your best campaign slogans in Discord or on twitter @AIEGuild with #QuestforCoguild. Thanks Kazrik for the hashtag idea!

Here is a sample of the ones we came up with during Friday night raid.
Sareynna: AIE Alliance: Keep a leader for more than one expansion.
Fez: AIE Alliance: We don’t have trolls in trade chat.
Fez: AIE Alliance: We don’t eat babies.
Kazrik: AIE Alliance: Same AIE family, same AIE fun!!
Reznikov: AIE Alliance: When world PvP feels too easy.
Ulto Dee: AIE Alliance: We got Leeeeeroooooooy Jennnnnnkinsss!

Dual Universe Update

The Organization ran 2 separate rescue operations to save a member who had run into trouble.
New Ships and Buildings are being constructed by all the members of the Org. This week be sure to check out pictures of PkhBasko’s latest ship in the Dual Universe channel in Discord.
Max meanwhile is busy working at building the first Anti-Grav ship in the Org. We all can’t wait to see what he comes up with.

The Org is currently planning for the next Alioth Aerospace Expo to be held in January.
The Org is also looking at possible relocation sites with room for all to gather together.

The biggest news in DU this week is that the current area Safe Zone Triangle will be remaining PVP free. This opens up several more planets and moons along with a large area of space in which people can safely build without concern for having their assets blown up by pirates.

WoW
WoW’s Anniversary is now live with a 16% Rep and Experience bonus

If you’re active in WoW Retail that means you’re able to play WoW Classic too! Let us know if you make a toon, need a guild invite, or bags to get started!

SWTOR
During MFN this past week, among other things, BC took us all the Nar Shaddaa to make sure we had one of the missions from the new Feast of Prosperity event, and then we went to kill the WB for that mission. By the end of the evening, we basically had our Conquest target for the week well handled. We also came in Mandalorian garb to celebrate the beginning of season 2 of The Mandalorian. You can see a pic on discord in #ssoritdh
Last month’s MEGA was epic! Not only did we have spooky costumes, but we got together and acquired the Fleet Datacron. It was very gratifying to see how many people still needed it and were able to get it.

Repeat PSA: If you have not acquired your Vanguard Squadron inspired mini-pet (offered due to the release of Star Wars: Squadrons), be sure to log in before NOV 7th.

Be sure to log in on Friday nights for MM Flashpoints, Achievements, and MEGAs! Also, let BC and Marcus know if you have things you’d like to see us do for MFN or MEGA.
