Bounty hunting is a complicated profession. Don’t you agree?

This Tuesday, November 12th marks the launch of The Mandalorian live-action Star Wars series coming to Disney+. We are all eagerly awaiting what looks to be a gritty, hard hitting series by Jon Favreau.

To celebrate, we are going to turn our regular Tuesday Mandatory Fun Night into a Mandalorian themed special event. Dress as best you can to fit in with the AIE Mando Clan and we’ll meet up, show off our armor, and find something to hunt.

8pm central, Imperial side, Star Forge.

Aliit ori’shya tal’din.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 314: Onslaught Unleashed
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-314-onslaught-unleashed/

Onslaught, Onslaught, Onslaught it’s a, wait for it… Game Changer.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 315: Gears Of Star War
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-315-gears-of-star-war/

Patch 6.0a has some fixes, still some bugs out in the wild, and gear progression tips and tricks.

Working Class Nerds – Episode 56: Holly Fields
https://www.buzzsprout.com/143519/1935650

Marcus and Nick got the chance to interview Holly Fields, the world renown voice actress and voice of Nadia Grell! Hopefully you enjoy the episode as much as they did recording it! You can find Holly on Twitter @HollyFields1 and on Instagram @holly_fields1

NOMADS
Play Outer Worlds, the best Fallout of recent years.

Diablo IV was announced at Blizzcon and is a much darker version of Diablo, more like Diablo II in tone and graphically play. It will also be an open world, so much so, that you will need mounts to travel through the world. There is a hub city where you can meet other players, show off your armor/weapons as well as a PvP area.

WoW
Noob Raid will be running the Anniversary Event (LFR) that launches on Tuesday. Reminder that Noob Raid runs on Saturday at 11pm Eastern.

Blizzcon Wrap Up
New expansion, entitled Shadowlands, was announced and is up for pre-sale. There are 3 tiers, so read carefully what’s in each.

Level squish is coming, Level 120 becomes level 50, and you’ll level 50-60 in Shadowlands. Levels 1-10 will be in the race specific starting area OR you can choose to level in the new level 1-10 zone that people new to the game will also start in.

Once you level 10, you’ll go visit Chromie and be given the choice of which expansion you want to level through. You can choose Mists of Pandaria, and you will level 10-50 in Pandaria, with the option to move to another expansion, however you will start at the beginning of the story of that expansion.

Your first character through Shadowlands will have to do all the zones, but once you finish the story, any alts will start with all endgame content unlocked at level 50 and can start progressing through it immediately. They can also choose which zone they want to level in, unlike your first character which will be going through zones in a specific order.

If you want to read a ton of good write-ups, visit https://blizzardwatch.com/2019/11/03/blizzcon-2019-roundup/ and enjoy!

WoW Classic
Reminder that Sunday, November 17th is the AIE Guild Craft Faire, we are still looking for donations, gatherers, and helpers for the faire. Please contact @Nevermore in #wow-classic channel or in game.

WoW Classic – AIE Craft Faire

On Sunday November 10th from 1pm Server/Eastern Time until done, Tynchal is organizing a Craft Faire Mats “Raid” beginning at Camp Tarajo in The Southern Barrens. We need lots of Light and Medium Leathers, so we’ll sweep both sides of The Gold Road. This works best to have “tanks” killing and looting with skinners following behind cleaning up. Depending on the “tanks” strength, a skinner/healer would be welcome. Please comment here with your abilities if you can attend. The Camp Tarajo plan is to work all the way toward Razorfen Crawl, whacking pig men as well as beasts. Then up the other side of The Gold Road, starting with the excavation site and all the way up to The Northern Barrens finding harpies, kolkars, more pig men and beasts, beasts, beasts. If there are enough raiders, the plan is to split up into areas. We should be able to gather cloth as well as LW mats and anyone who is a flower picker (lots of Briarthorn) or miner can pick and dig undisturbed. Come one, come all! Tynchal’s CF bank alts will all be in Rachet at the bank to accept LW mats. Hope to see you at Camp T!

SWTOR
Onslaught is now live and it has really been a game changer. The new gearing system is in full swing. Each piece of new gear you acquire is bind-to-legacy, so as your main gears up, your alts can equip the discards. In most situations, loot is determined according to your gear level, so alts don’t have to start over at point zero. It’s a pretty deep system that will grow in complexity and variation at end game gear level. But for simple vertical gearing it’s very easy to understand and be successful at.

Leveling from 70 to 75 can be accomplished through the story and does not take long at all. By the end of the story, you will have full 268 gear. Equip every upgrade you get so that the gearing system gives you more upgrades!

The launch went pretty smoothly with only one server restart about an hour after launch. Not to say there haven’t been bugs–Like the Imperial travel option that lands you in a Republic base! Or the bug where the group finder puts your 8 man team into a 16 man Operation. Fun times!

Crafting and crew skills also got a bit of an overhaul. Crafting is truly not for the faint of heart this time around even though it was tweaked somewhat after feedback on the public test server.

Players can now purchase the HK-55 chapter from the Cartel Market. It gives you access to a special chapter of gameplay and then account-wide access to HK-55 as a companion.

During MFN on launch day, the guild concentrated on leveling. That weekend Marcus put together an opsalong to help everyone with gearing. Throughout the week we’ve been running flashpoints to that same end.

MEGA this month will be on Friday November 15th at 9PM Eastern where we will do Onslaught stuff!

Ops teams are looking forward to trying out the new operation, “The Nature of Progress”, when we get our gear levels up. But, in the meantime there is a lot to do!

BCavanagh has updated the Conquest calculator for 6.0 – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GoP6oVUROvpujs70ro6pSP3yH-Ez_zRYGnyEVViWEs8/edit?usp=sharing

FFXIV
Tuesday 10pm est – Casual 80 content
Wednesday 10pm – Midweek- MFN – leveling and MSQ dungeon focus
Thursday 10pm est – Extreme, Savage, Ultimate night, aka Wipe Night for progression. SIGN UPS REQUESTED!!!
Friday MFN 10pm est. – All member request. MSQ, dungeon unlocks, legacy raids, old and new content, fashion help, maps, or other content.

Patch 5.1 has hit and a ton of new features were added for solo and group play.

1) New MSQ quests including the new dungeon, The Grand Cosmos.

2) the 1st 24-player raid, inspired from Nier Automata, The Copied Factory. This raid will be a future event at the MFN coming soon and this raid is AWESOME!!!

3) Hades Extreme is now available for higher end raiders. It’s difficult is in-between eden savage 2 and 3. Coming soon to a Thursday night raid night.

4) Put the crafting to use to help out other FC members or help with the FC submarine craft! 10 new zones for the FC sub to explore has been added. Check out the workshop in the FC house to see how you can help out.

5) New Beast Tribe Daily quests. Help faeries, get loot. XP scales from 70-80, so a great alt job leveling mechanic.

6) New performance updates! This is the custom music feature in the game to show off player created music. New instruments, a new music trainer to show you how to play some fan-favorite songs, and an ensemble mode to play music synced as a group. Time to get the band back together!

7) New Fellowship system! These are groups, up to 1000 members (far greater than linkshells, or even FC’s) that allow for cross server communication, polls, posts, discussions, and announcements. Drop by the #ffxiv channel to get an invite. Since this is not server or FC membership dependent, you can still join to hear about AIE events even if you are committed to another FC. You still need to be on the Crystal data center however.

STO
Jem’hadar veteran rewards are now available to lifetime subscribers. This includes a Jem’hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer.

Lifetime subscription sale going on now until Nov 21st. $100 off, so it is currently $199.99.

Also, until November 14th you can create Gamma Recruits again. This gives you added rewards for meeting various goals. The rewards are account wide for most of the rewards.

Also, black friday is coming, so if you have had your heart set on a ship or something else in the C-store, every year there are sales around black Friday. Time to buy more ships than you know what to do with…

EVE
Settled for the most part in our temporary home, sounds like coalition will be moving again end of the year to our new temporarily permanent home (cuz its eve). Sounds like a new coalition maybe a reality (opsec maybe?)

Speaking of Eve, or those to play Eve, Huck’s daughter is currently in labor so he’s gonna be a first time Grandpa! Sounds like Grandpa Huck is gonna need some Isk to buy diapers!

GW2
The new build template system has arrived! Be sure to log in and claim the free build slot expansion (and revive orb) from the gemstore! It is uncertain how long the free boost will remain there. There have been many complaints to Arenanet about their…uh…enthusiastic triple monetization scheme and they are taking the resulting player feedback “under consideration”.

In case you haven’t finished the achievements yet, the running Shadows of the Mad King Halloween event ends on Nov 5th around noon PST

And from the last Arenanet livestream, we have been told that the first chapter of the Icebrood Saga, “Whisper In The Dark” is due for release on November 19th

LOTRO
The Minas Morgul expansion was pushed back and is scheduled to be released on November 5th. The Havestmath was also extended through November 11th. SNL still going great from 7:30-9:30 Max time on the landroval server.

And with that, let’s get back to Dankinia and Sparrow and find out what’s going on in Elder Scrolls Online.

GAME NEWS
The Dragonhold DLC patch launched October 21st which is the final segment for the Season of the Dragon. It brought a new zone, new main and side quests, and some nice base game improvements.

The Witches festival was extended an extra week and the usual MFN mentions.

ESO
The two recent prologue quests (we did them as part of MFN the week they launched) are part of the base game and lead up to the opening on Southern Elsweyr which will be the new location available with the Dragonhold DLC which comes out on October 21st for PC/Mac. The new area is about the size of Clockwork City and has the continuation of the Season of the Dragon’ main quest, new delves, and of course new side quests. There will be new plant life and unique beasts that roam the area which had a near-apocalyptic past. Most of the dragons that were released stayed in the northern part of Elswyer, however some did venture to the southern area and there will be two new types of dragons to hunt (storm and frost types).

MFN is till every Friday night at 9pm est. We run dungeons, do zone clears of skyshards, kill world bosses, and take part in events.

The next event should be the Witches Festival which will probably have an exp buff as well as the berries and feather for the Indrik mounts.

STO
Another free T6 ship token project has started. And the Kobayashi Maru event has started and goes until November 7th.

EVE
Just getting settled into our new home. Move ops (evacuation) is setting down.

GW2
Shadow of the Mad King event is live through November 5. Shadow of the Mad Kings is the Halloween event. New skins and infusions this year, as well as the previous rewards. The candy corn gobbler and the home instance candy corn node are back for convenient (if semi-random) buffs!

LOTRO
Minas Morgal is still available for pre-sale. The new expansion is scheduled for an October 29th release date. If you have pre-purchased Minas Morgul the new race, Stout-Axe Dwarves is available to play right away. Harvestmath festival is currently running through November 5th.

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

GAME NEWS
It’s the weekend before the dawn (or early afternoon–or possibly late evening) of the launch of Onslaught. People are tidying up their inventories, finishing up any quests they may have lurking in their logs, and spending all the currencies that are going away. The new expac, which comes this Tuesday the 22nd, will have a city in a hollowed out asteroid, a return to the ancient planet of Onderon, a new Operation, a new flashpoint, a new race, 5 more levels, new crafting, and new things to discover. New characters will emerge and new stories. If you are thinking of trying swtor, this week might be the week. Not too long ago, restrictions on free-to-play were greatly relaxed, too.

On Saturday of this week, AIE will be involved in an epic Operations crawl where loot will fall like rain. Seriously, there is a lot of loot to be had. The ops are synched to level 70, so you won’t have to get to max level to join in. The new Operation, which is a longer term goal, will be set for level 75.

Tonight and tomorrow (Sunday and Monday) are the last two days of a galaxy-changing cartel market sale. You can get deals on character names, slots and appearance options, decorations for player housing, companions, pets, dyes, armors, and lastly, unlocks. If you have that toy (or emote, or light saber crystal,or or or)you love to use, but have not unlocked for all your characters, you still have time. The sale lasts until Monday night.

Optional topics depending on where the conversation goes:
Deeper dive on what’s in the expansion
How we prepared (or failed to finish preparing) this week
What we expect the next month or two to be like for AIE in SWTOR
AIE SWTOR stuff like ops teams, MEGA, MFN, Conquest and how it all continues to work
RoS last trailer coming tomorrow night, tickets also go on sale

CLOSE
And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Max and Sema for joining us.

If you have a question or comment about our show, you can email us at podcast@aie-guild.org. You can also follow us on Twitter. The show is at @aiepodcast. Mew is at @themewkow.

Destiny 2 – New expansion Shadowkeep is live.

Destiny 2 is now on the Steam Store and the core game is F2P. Prior expansions are now available as DLC.

You can reach the “soft cap” light level in the game with the F2P version.

AIE Clan may be joined by submitting a request via https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=2122972

Have any questions, feel free to ask in AIE Discord.

WoW
Patch 8.2.5 is out and we have a #wow-spoilers channel in AIE Discord for those that haven’t played through the content yet … but seriously, go play through it and then watch

Battle for Azeroth – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDzPkTEMBgc

It’s a 23 minute compilation of all the cinematics from Battle for Azeroth so far, but don’t watch until you’ve played through the 8.2.5 content.

Dark Moon Faire is coming this week, so polish up your professions, get your prizes, and get that rep/xp boost for your alts that you’re leveling.

Alliance news. HFO raid team is taking a break until the next tier so people have time to play Classic. Anyone that is interested in joining and doing things on Friday nights, should ping myself or @Harruq in AIE Discord so we can add their names to the list.

Wow Classic
https://aie-guild.org/game-division/wow-classic/

AIE Craft Faire

We need all the mats… ALL not just cloth which we have a good foundation from because of people donating for bags to giveaway.

We specifically need Co-Captains for Blacksmithing and Mining. Everyone is welcome to help be gatherers, but if anyone wants to volunteer to help for a specific team they can contact Nevermore in game or in AIE Discord.

WoW Classic – AIEMounts

We have 155 gold in donations from 5 AIE members and so far a single loan of 45 gold to Halftusk to obtain his raptor mount.

SWTOR
October 22 is fast approaching. That is when SWTOR’s new expansion is due to arrive. Currently, the public test server is available and flash points have all been level-synched to reflect the new max level of 75. Bioware is looking for feedback on the difficulty of the flashpoints.

Also, the final PTS achievement is now available for players to earn. If you weren’t able finish the previous achievement, don’t worry. You can continue to work on it throughout this phase as well.

The New York Cantina was this weekend! AIEers including Max, Zen, BC, Marcus, Nick, and Dr. Swtor attended as well as many players from the SWTOR community including Intisar and Kogass. They spent the evening hanging out with the dev team and meeting other players. Zen even got a brunch group together Saturday morning at the Skylight Diner.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

ESO
The Dragon Rise even started on October 3rd and runs until October 14th at 10am est. There are 3 rewards that will be unlocked based on player participation – A Green Dragon Imp pet, a Grim Harvester Costume, and the Dragon’s Treasure Trove furnishing. So far the community has unlocked the Imp and the costume. Activities/events that help with earning the rewards – earn the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement, go dragon hunting and kill dragons in Elsweyr, and complete the two new Dragonhold Prologue quests that unlock on October 8th.

The new Prologue quests are considered part of the base game, so they will be available for everyone when they go live and they lead to the events that will take place in the upcoming Dragonhold DLC that will be out in Q4.

In addition, during the current event, you can earn 2 event tickets per day. Any monster in Elsweyr has a chance to drop one and a boss monster is a guaranteed drop for 1.
Because of the Event, MFN for next Friday will focus on the new prologue quests and/or hunting dragons depending on how long the quests take.

EVE
War is over. We lost and are evaccing. But WoW Classic is pretty good. Moving is still going. Some of us actually logged into EVE to move.

GW2
We would need 5 people on to get the Fractal Island started, please contact Maellung if you want to help out or have more info.

LOTRO
New expansion pack Minas Morgul is scheduled for release on October 29th. It is available for pre-sale at http://lotro.com/en/minasithil/

The guild is continuing to walk some players through the starting areas

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

GAME NEWS
Patch 5.1 is close, coming to us sometime late October. If the previous history is any indication, we will get a date a few days after we record this podcast. So, keep an eye on our discord in the #ffxiv channel for updates! (Likely to get a launch date on the 18th. More on that in a moment…)

Patch 5.1, Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty, will have…

New Main Scenario Quests

The first act of the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse raid series, starting with “The Copied Factory”. This raid is a collaboration between the FFXIV designers and the NieR:Automata designers to create a spiritual sequel to the NieR:Automata series. This will be the 24-player raid series, similar to the Crystal Tower, Ivaliace, and Void Ark series in previous expansions.

New crafter and gather quests as we get questslines to help rebuild Ishgard, from the Heavensward expansion.

New Game+. A way to replay past experiences and quests from the game, while remaining your actual level. There are some great solo duty and story elements that just watching them on the “Unending Journey” will not suffice. With this new feature, you will be able to jump back into different places in the MSQ to relive those events, but still retain your current level and gear.

New Dungeon, “The Grand Cosmos”. Can be done via the duty finder or with your trusts.

A new Extreme Trial! We know what the fight is, as it normally the last trial in each expansion, but giving the name away is a spoiler. So, it’s that fight with that thing that ends the MSQ of Shadowbringers in the 5.0 content. 5.1 has the extreme version of that.

New Pixie Beast Tribe Quests! A new beast tribe will become available, the first for Shadowbringers. It is a daily quest reputation grind, but it does reward with some very unique and imaginative cosmetics, minions, and also a nice, easy source for a few end game tomestones.

Blue Mage Updates! Increased Level cap, new quests, new skills, new blue-mage specific encounters.

Time to get the band together! The Performance system, where you can play music on an instrument, can now be synced up as a group!

New Housing Plots! All 4 residential districts will have wards 19-21 opened up to purchase for a house. In addition, a 2nd apartment building will become available. The new plots will start off being only available to purchase by an FC, but if they do a move, that means the old plot will become available. So if you are in the market for a new house, this may be the time to buy the house of your dreams. Right now, AIE is happy with our current housing arrangement, and we do not plan on moving.

Some UI refinements, such as glamour chest updates, duty finder ui updates (just adding your current ilevel to the duty finder window to save you a few clicks), emote sorting, sound effects when you are emote’d, and other “surprise features” that sorta just show up in the patched game.

Finally, the 5.1 Live Letter Part LV. (Brings up my roman abacus…) That’s the 55th Live Letter, will be taking place on Oct 18th at 4am PST. Remember, Square Enix is a Japaneese company. Usually, we get further details for the next patch on this 2nd Live Letter, a story and hype trailer, some unannounced game feature, and the date of the patch at the end. Please look forward to it.

Current FC news and End Game

The FC is still rocking, and we are still on Goblin in the Crystal Data Center. You are welcome to come along, play with us with a free demo account, which lets you play up to level 35 on all of the classes/jobs. To join the FC, do you need a retail account, via a retail key, steam, or on the Playstation Network for the PS4 folks out there, as this game does provide true cross play.

Without catching a sale someplace, in US Dollars…
$60 bucks gets you everything to play current content.
$40 bucks get you Shadowbringers, which will include all previous expansions, so if you have a retail key in any way, including the Twitch Prime promotion that happened last year, this will get you current.
$20 for the starter edition, letting you level up to 50 and corresponding 2.x patch content. The Heavensward promotion is over, but we told you that a few months ago that was going to stop at the end of June, didn’t we? 🙂

The current end game activities in Shadowbringers does have a few raids and high-end content available to give you things to do with your gear grind.

When you finish the MSQ, you have a couple of early goals, assuming you want to work on gearing that job. If you want to roll up a new job, by all means, go for it.

First off, will be unlocking content. There are 2 additional end game dungeons and along with the last MSQ dungeon will make up the Expert Roulette, which will your fastest source of end game tomestones, the end game tokens for gear. You can pick up “The Twinning” in the Crystarium, and “Akademia Anydar” in Eulmore near the Southeast Derelicts warp crystal waypoint. Complete these two and you will have unlocked the Expert Roulette. Protip: Asking in FC chat or #ffxiv in AIE’s discord will help you get a group thru there much faster, with cooler people, and will be a much better time.

There is also the Wandering Minstrel in the Crystarium that will unlock the extreme trials for Innocence and Titania.

Also in Eulmore, you will have the vendors that will trade you items for your tomestones, tokens from end game bosses.

When you hit iLevel 425, you will be eligible to enter the normal modes of Eden, the current 8-player raids available at this time. The unlock is also in the Crystarium, and will have you do a few story quests until you can unlock the first boss. There is no trash in Eden, just bosses.

Going thru the 4 wings, for 4 bosses thru there, you will rewarded with an item that once you have enough of them can be traded in for ilevel 450 gear. Some items require more than one token, but the tooltip will show how many you need to get a piece of gear.

By completing the 4th wing, everyone will get a “Blade of Early Antiquity”, which can be aquired once a week. When you get 7 of these, and 1000 Phantasmagoria tomestones, you can turn them in for a iLevel 460 weapon.

Also, other gear items can be purchased with Phantas for iLevel 460 gear as well.

Once you complete the 4 wings and reach an average iLevel of 440, you will then be eligible to run the savage mode of the Eden raid, which is the most difficult content in the game at this time. Your reward for this content will be 470 gear, with the weapon being 475 form the last boss. Items are rolled upon, like a traditional dungeon, but if you don’t get the drop, everyone still gets a consolation prize of a book, which you can get 1 per wing, per week. When you accumulate enough, you can then turn them into the vendors in Eulmore, getting the same piece of gear that would of dropped from the dungeon. So, if the RNG aetherflows are not in your favor, you can guarantee yourself gear by continuing to clear the content over multiple weeks.

AIE does high end content twice a week. Tuesday nights at 10PM EST is what we call gearing up nights, where we do Eden normal runs to help people at least see the content, get explained the fights in a friendly environment, and overall, have a good time.

Thursday nights 10PM EST, is where we hope to do the higher end content. Extreme Trials or Savage Eden is our goal.

We do use a separate Discord server for coordination, scheduling, and raid discussion, but any AIE member can join. Just ask either Durus or Abovan an invite and we can get you on that server.

CLOSE

WoW
Gustytail is planning some guild events for Brewfest this week for the sausage eating contest. I know Friday at 8pm Eastern is Horde side. I’m not sure what day/time she decided on for Horde. The contest grants a 2 hour 10% Exp buff and if you win 5 times, you can buy a toy. The idea is to cheese win it like we do for trial of style. You need 4 people to sit down to start it.
It gives you a 3 min CD to do it again, so ideally we want 2-3 groups of four rotating in.

Noob Raid is doing well and is 6/8 on Palace and runs on Saturday nights at 11pm server (Eastern Time)

Patch 8.2.5 is launching on the 24th of September with the usual scheduled downtime from 7 am PDT to 3 pm PDT.

SWTOR
It’s been a quiet two weeks in SWTOR. The dev team has been working on getting Onslaught ready for its closeup on the 22nd of October. The Public Test Server will most likely be available this week for everyone to try out the new gear acquisition changes.

In the live game, The Grand Galactic Sale is going on. This is a Cartel Market event with a new sale announced each week. So, far we’ve had special deals on character transfers, character slots, color crystals and appearance options. This week’s sale will be announced on the 23rd (Monday).

New York Cantina will be on Oct 4th at Stitch. There will be an AIE contingent there and everyone is invited. You don’t have to be a swtor player! Drop into AIE discord to get more details on the when and where and come join in.

September MEGA will be on the 27th when Marcus will lead us on a mission to get the fabled Magenta light saber crystal. It’s a throwback to the day when there was not a lot of variety available in crystal colors and this was one of the only ways to get a magenta one. There will be camaraderie, trivia, and Rodian Mayo sandwiches for all! Well, camaraderie and trivia, anyway. And crystals.

FFXIV
Life in Hydaelyn continues. Weekly Eden Normal clears are still happening.
* We’ve started a learning group for Savage content on Thursday evenings when we’re not doing Extreme content. Bunbuns are still cute; Lalafell are still smol.
* Recent Live Letter (54) revealed details from upcoming patches including: raising level cap for Blue Mage to 60, new job quests, crafting and gathering systems rework that “increases easy of entry” and introduces some new UI layouts.
* The restoration of Ishgard, new community system called “Fellowships” that can have 1000 members though is a loose coalition of posting and LFG systems – not a chat channel.
* The “New Game+” system will be introduced that’ll let you revisit main scenario quests from Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers. A Realm Reborn and other storylines will come later.

* The new raid content with Neir Automata theme, “YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse” is also coming.

ESO
@Dankinia was out with IRL fun so this past Friday’s MFN was run by Thuggs. Shoutout to Thuggs for shepherding the group through a skyshard clear of Craglorn. MFNs continue on Friday nights… join!

Beyond that, the ESO group is eagerly awaiting Update 24 coming soon, which will be the conclusion of the chain of recent content updates all centered around the dragon theme. https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/news/post/56975

STO
Lots of fun in STO continues with our Fleet and the STO MFNs on Sunday nights.
In a sad aside, Aaron Eisenberg, the actor from DS9 who played Nog, the Ferengi, passed away recently. He was a contributor to STO and a respected part of the Star Trek community.

EVE
War is over. We lost and are evaccing. But WoW Classic is pretty good.

GW2
WoW Classic continues to be good, though my old petitioning for a group skills are very rusty. GW2 has had the first episode of the new Living World season saga drop, to good reviews. Be sure to log into a toon so you can unlock the episode while it is still free. There is a party in the Charr lands, and you are invited!

There is new, at least theoretically, harder content that has been released called Strike Missions. The idea is to have harder open world content that can be used for an intro to raiding. Reactions so far are generally positive, but it appears to need tuning.

LOTRO
Last night’s raid in LOTRO went very well. We had enough people where we had an actual raid group. If anyone missed out on the raid and wants to run through the intro area let me know and I can group up with you and run you through the intro area. New race was on bullroarer ( lotro pts). Hopefully soon we can see Stout Axe Dwarves live

And with that, let’s talk about AIE in WoW classic!

GAME NEWS
WoW Classic

Nevermore is heading up the AIE Craft Faire Project, she is working on a Google Docs Spreadsheet to keep track of the items that are needed, what levels you gain access to professions, and which recipes are needed for leveling vs. just nice to have.

For anyone that wants to help out, especially if you previously helped out in the retail Craft Faires please let Tetsemi and/or Nevermore know and we’ll get you in. Craft faire captains and/or gathers are most welcome.

Lars and Bhock are heading up the AIE Mount Project . Basically a rolling guild fund that will provide funds to be paid back to the guild for helping people get over the hump to get their mounts. The collection character is AIEMounts

Bhock and Girjira are heading up the AIE Raiding Project. A guild bank toon will take donations of crafted items for the raid teams and coordinating the formation of the 40 person raid team

We will be removing any character that hasn’t logged into the guild in over 14 days, we’re above 900+ characters now and need to make room by removing inactive characters. If you character gets removed, we can always add you back in, just hop into the AIE Discord #wow-classic channel or ask in the AIELFO channel in game.

Congrats to Lulzsec our first level 60!

CLOSE
And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Tet for updating us on WoW Classic.

And now it’s time to play all of the great AIE member segment we received this week, including…

No segments this weeks, as Hunts is living up to his name and Hunting the Wind and Buxley is currently serving time as a Buff rock in WoW Classic for an unpardonable pun in Barrens Chat. Having said that, anyone is welcome to submit a segment for the podcast.

Next time, we’ll be talking to Abovan and Durus in FFXIV. So until then, AIE…

As of now, Nomads is mostly a catch all Discord channel for discussion of “other” games we are playing. However, it started as an actual game team that would jump to a new game every week or two. We are reviving a bit of that experience this week with a Nomads style adventure into Lord of the Rings Online on Saturday, 9/21 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm central.

The plan is for everyone, both new or long time players, to create a L1 Dwarf. We’ll all group up once our characters are created and play through the starting scenario together. Once out, we’ll get to check out Thorin’s Hall and see about invites into the guild Kinship. You can go ahead and create your character ahead of time but there will be some time at the start for character creation as well. We’ll all meet up in voice in Discord to chat and answer questions live.

The key to this event is getting LotRO downloaded and installed. It’s free to download and free to play. In rare instances, it can be tricky to get working on some PCs so feel free to ask for help in the #lotro channel if you need it. Download now!

This event is being organized by @Marcus and @Maellung Arrowshield, so hit them in guild Discord for more information!
