WoW
Saturday Noob Raid is doing great, clearing bosses faster and faster, so come have fun with us.

WoW Classic Beta started invites, with an AIE presence on PvE Horde mostly (from what I could read, as I refresh my email hourly, hoping for the invite).

Friday Night Alliance Raid team still recruiting. An unnamed discord has been just created to help facilitate the new Alliance raid team! The link is posted in #raidteam-recruitment

Raid team updates
https://wiki.aie-guild.org/index.php?title=WOW:Raid_Team_Summary#Active_AIE_Raiding_Teams

SWTOR
The next Mega will be… FRIDAY June 14!!! 9pm Eastern IMP SIDE

More news: Our MFN leads have come up with a new idea for our MFN schedule. We’ll be running a series of operations as part of MFN, but since it’s hard to complete the operation in a single night, whatever we don’t finish we will schedule for a following week. The trick there is that a handful of heroes will go in early, before MFN, and clear some of the bosses to get the MFN group a progressed lockout. Should be fun and should get more people a chance to see end bosses.

The launch date for 5.10.3 “The Dantooine Incursion” is set for 5/28/19. Pirates, pets, mounts, new armor looks, decos and even an Ugnaught companion! Ok, one pet. But lots of pirates.

ESO
Early access to Elsweyr begins on May 20th and official release is June 4th. Please save the beginning quest for that zone on at least one toon until the the first MFN after the official launch because our MFN that night will be starring that zone together. Until then MFN’s will be zone clears and dungeon runs every Friday night at 9pm EST

EVE
A EVE Titan in every pot!
Guaranteed stupid
Wacky space politics
Informative food pictures
Community health support program
A literature corner
Deep philosophical discussions on the role of man and his/her place in the universe
A distinguished panel of art experts discussion foreign cinema (animation specific)
Reviews and commentary on upcoming and recent video game releases
All of this and more if you join AIE
Your mileage may vary
Plus the privilege of getting blown up in one of @Lanctharus hair brained space exploits
AIEU confirmed Space Tomfoolery since some time last week
increase your daily sodium intake due to increased tear production if you play EVE

GW2
The living world season 4’s final episode, War Eternal is out. It features a new mount, the skyscale dragon, that can hover and climb walls. Be sure to log in to a toon to unlock the episode even if you don’t have Path of Fire.

They also released a new legendary weapon, the great sword Exordium. This is the final legendary weapon that was promised us for Heart of Thorns, and was worth the wait, having many custom animation and transformations.

FFXIV
The Event poll is still up, if you are listening to this live. The poll will close at 11:59pm EST on Sunday. Get your voices heard!
The FFXIV x FFXV crossover event is still running until May 27th! There is still time to get the car 4-player mount. We will be running the Jackpot II FC buff on the weekends to help get those MGPs to get that mount.
Reminder, Shadowbringers: Early Access for pre-orders starts up on June 28th. Pre-ordering today also get you an earring that levels with you and gives you an xp bonus to level 70 on all battle classes. (If it sounds like a WoW Heirloom, is because it acts almost identical to it.)
The next FFXIV Live Letter is scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd at 1:30pm EST from media tour in San Francisco. We are expecting to hear some more details on Shadowbringers, job changes, and the ever mysterious “miscellaneous announcements.” This live letter will include the translators, so no need to brush up on your Japanese to understand what is going on!
This can change every Tuesday, but as of this recording, Goblin, the server that AIE plays on, is a preferred server for new characters. New characters created during this time will get a double xp bonus on all xp sources, all jobs, until level 60.
Again, if you only have the starter edition, Heavenward, the first expansion, is free for you for a limited time. Just head over to the SE store and “buy” it for 0 dollars and 0 cents. PS4 folks, you can get the same deal on the PSN.

LOTRO
Maellung Arrowshield is continuing to run Saturday Night LOTRO (SNL) on Saturdays at 2030 Eastern.
The anniversary event ends tonight, 19 May. So hopefully you finished all the quests and turned in your tokens for the rewards. If you have been trying to figure out what to spend your LOTRO points on,
Stat Tomes
Regeneration Food
Run Speed Boosts
Attack Damage Boosts
Are currently 20% off, through May 23rd.

And with that, let’s get back to Corley and Dent and find out what’s going on in Star Trek Online.

GAME NEWS
Captain’s Log 20190519

Fleet Updates
Last week we completed construction on our Tier 2 Spire in the Dyson’s Sphere. Our goal is to complete the Spire to Tier 3. In Star Trek Online we have many bases that the fleet can visit and hangout in. They are similar to the Guild Ships in SWTOR, but also unlock gear and abilities that players can purchase for their characters.
Most Sunday Nights we have an MFN at 8:30 PM Eastern. We usually run new content and if there’s an event going on we will run that. Like all good engineers, we work on getting a little more out of those warp cores, or whatever bit of tech needs adjusting. Episodes are sometimes run if a new player needs help leveling.

Major Game Updates
New Reputation was release this week, Discovery Legends. This new reputation is Discovery themed that includes three new sets of gear, Burnham’s Resolve (3 Piece Ground Set), Lorca’s Ambition (3 Piece Space Weapon Set) and Stamets-Tilly’s Ingenuity(4 Piece Space Set).
Along with the release of the new reputation, a new season of episodes was released, Rise of Discovery. So far two episodes have been released and focus around what happens prior to when Lorca takes command of the Discovery. For these episodes they were able to get Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma to reprise their roles of Lorca and Landry. Aren’t holodeck fantastic?
Tier 6 ship are now able to be used at any level and are not locked to endgame players. They scale as you level so their slots and stats match what ships of your character’s level should be.
Another thing with Tier 6 ships, STO has release a mechanism where you can earn a T6 100% discount coupon to purchase a free T6 ship for your account. It takes a long time to complete and requires playing new content to earn the tokens.

Learn about the past of Gabriel Lorca and Ellen Landry with our latest update, starring Jason Issacs and Rekha Sharma.

ESO
The anniversary event ends this week after 5 fun fill weeks of cake. Early access to Elsweyr begins on May 20th and official release is June 4th. Please save the beginning quest for that zone on at least one toon until the the first MFN after the official launch because our MFN that night will be starring that zone together. Until then MFN’s will be zone clears and dungeon runs every Friday night at 9pm EST.

EVE
War continues and the merge of some global factions into the mix has made things interesting. The corp is always looking for new pilots and spies. It’s a bit of a dive down the rabbit hole but the team there is always happy to support everyone.

GW2
Lots of people working on alts at the moment. MFN groups still get together on Mondays on occasion. Check in with Dejara to get something going. Also check the Discord channel pins for a new reference post that does a good job of laying out the open world changes that have occurred over time.

FFXIV
The callback campaign is on. Have someone from the FC or someone on your friend’s list send you an in-game invite back to the game. Doing so will get you reward for both of you!
April 25-June 3rd.

The invited player must have an expired sub for 90 days and still have their account in good standing (i.e. not be banned).

The invited player will get 7 days of free game time, 99 Aetheryte tickets (free teleports, 1 per ticket), and 10 silver chocobo feathers which can be turned in for gear to get caught back up.
The inviter will get 10 gold chocobo feathers, which can be used to buy items like the Twintania mount, 2 person chocobo mount, rare dyes, or Aetheryte tickets of your own.

The FFXIV x FFXV crossover event is still going until May 27th.
If you complete this level 50 event, you can then purchase cosmetic items, such as the Regalia, the game only 4 person mount, currently.
The mount costs 200,000 Manderville Gold Saucer (MGP) points. To assist, the Free Company will be running the FC buff, “Jackpot 2” on Saturday and Sunday during the event. This will provide a bonus of all MGP rewards.

Various ways of getting MGP have been discussed in the #ffxiv channel in discord, so drop on by if you want some ideas on farming them up. With the current rewards and the buff, many players have been able to get enough MGP in 1-2 weeks of time.

If you are on the starter edition, including the Twitch Prime promotion, Square Enix is providing Heavenward for free until June 27th. Once this is added to your account, you get to keep it permanently. This includes the PC version, MacOS, and PS4 editions.

https://store.na.square-enix-games.com/en_US/ffxiv_heavensward_free

Heavensward is the continuing story of the game to the kingdom of Ishgard, where the Warrior of Light is thrusted into the Dragonsong War and awesome music. This will include all content in the expansion, including patch 3.5, The Far End of Fate which sets the stage for Stormblood.

Shadowbringers is still slated for release on July 2nd, with pre-order getting a head start starting on June 28th. If you pre-order this expansion, you get access to all previous expansions on the head start date.

The FC vault still has some goodies. If you need something from there, grab it! We are trying to populate it with some cosmetics and some other helpful items. Feel free to grab something that strikes your fancy! The Vault is available in all major cities and the FC house.

The Shadowbringers Media Tour will be hitting mid May. We are expecting to get some details on the new classes of Gunbreaker and Dancer classes at this time.

Drop on down to the FFXIV channel and we can help you get started in your Final Fantasy adventure (not to be confused with Final Fantasy Adventure, the old Game Boy Final Fantasy. Totally different things).

Welcome to episode #319 of the the podcast celebrating you, the Alea Iacta Est gaming community, the die has been podcast. This is Mkallah: To my left is Mewkow: - (catch phrase here). And to my right is Tetsemi: (catch phrase here). This week we are talking among ourselves and catching you up on what is going on in AIE! Welcome to my esteemed co-hosts!!!

We will be chatting about what we have been up to, but first, the news!

AIE News
We had an all officer meeting over the weekend and do that periodically, on top of meetings more often in individual game divisions. Blizzcon planning for meetups was a key point of discussion and the posts in #events outline the current plan.

We are also working on some minor updates around the guild websites and other communication tools, so keep an eye out for that.

The various streams and podcasts for AIE are a really great way to see what's going on and engage. We are always looking for more AIE streams, blogs, etc to get posted to the content creators channel and really like seeing that stuff there.

Just a note, the AIE Meetup is no longer active. The sites wasn’t being utilized and as a group our size required a monthly fee, it has been shut down. Please feel free to utilize the events channel in discord for real life gatherings.

Destiny 2 – The Spring Event is going on. With the old lady on the platform giving away stuff

The Division 2 is very active right now, join in the discussion in game and in #thedivision2 channel in AIE Discord.

WoW
We have 128 characters in the Alliance guild. Seeing quite a few people online. And the guild got the “Goblin Slayer” guild achievement today along with the Orc slayer last week.

We are one troll class and two panda class from the horde Slayer achievement to unlock Guild Page

Syreyne is looking to see if we have enough interest to start a fun orientated raid team for WoW in the Alliance guild. She’s looking at Friday night as a possible day.

(MEWKOW?) Update on teams that got aotc in the past week.

Raid Finder (and Mythic) difficulty for Crucible of Storms will open next week, April 23. Similar to Battle of Dazar’alor, you will need an average item level of 350 to queue for it. To help ensure players get raid ready, we are increasing the maximum item level for certain World Quests rewards. This will include the following:

World Quest rewards will go up to ilvl 370 (from 360)
Emissary equipment will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385)
Emissary Azerite Armor will go up to ilvl 400 (from 385)
Against Overwhelming Odds (when available) will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385)

Once the update is live it will affect active rewards like the Emissaries, so you may want to plan for when you will turn those in.

SWTOR
See Game Notes

ESO
The cake is still not a lie. Week 3 of the anniversary celebration is underway. This week the focus is on PvP for those extra loot boxes. Next week (week 4) will focus on daily dungeons so Mandatory Fun on Friday will be be focused on doing as many of the random dailies we can. Week 5 is basically a free all. Any of the daily quests in Tamriel will give out the extra loot boxes so chain pull dungeons, share zone dailies, and kill all the things in delves.

FFXIV
It’s FFXIV x FFXV Crossover Time!

Join Noctis, as he and his car, the Regalia, (and maybe some Em-Tees) end up on Eorzea! Go with Noct for another adventure!

As you progress, you will unlock more cosmetic gear to give you the Noct look, and it is dyeable as well.

Completing the little story will unlock the Regalia, for 200,000 MGP (Manderville Gold Saucer Points), along with a Noctis hairstyle and Noctis Triple Triad card.

Need some help with grinding out the MGP? The AIE Discord channel for FFXIV has been hopping with ideas and assistance in getting the MGP needed. Fashion Evaluations, Chocobo racing, challenge logs are just a few ideas. To assist, the FC will be running the Jackpot buff this weekend, to give you a bonus to all gained MGP.

For the FFXV music lovers, you will also be able to acquire some of the tunes from FFXV to play in your personal room, inn, or house if you have it. There are 6 orchestral rolls, and they can be purchased after you complete the event story. They cost 1 of the special fate drops in Central Thanalan.

The FC house added a couple of them to the house playlist and we’ll rotate them over time.

Speaking of Orchestral Rolls, Abovan got tired of having so many of the faded rolls in his own inventory. As such, he’s been crafting them into useable rolls and putting them into tab 2 in the FC vault. When he makes others, I’ll keep putting them in there. If you need another orchestral unlock, go ahead and grab one.

Remember the Twitch Prime Loot for FFXIV Starter Edition is still good until May 3rd. Until then, you will be able to get the full license of the base game, levels 1-50, and get 30 days of game time. (Would run you 20 bucks if you wanted to buy it yourself.)

Of course, anyone is welcome to join us. PS4? No problem. Mac? No problem. All editions of the game are on the same servers and can interact with each other. So, don’t have that super-powered PC anymore? A PS4 (even the normal, non-pro) plays the game just fine.

Execute Operation: Riposte!

Operation Riposte is the first major Federation offensive of the Klingon-Federation War of 2256-57. After nearly a month of crushing defeats, the Federation initiates a bold new plan to regain initiative in the war. The planet of Priors World has recently been conquered by the Klingons, but the Federation counter-attack aims to not only wrestle control of that world back into Federation hands, but also to deliver the first major defeat to the Klingons and thereby inject a much needed morale boost back into the ranks of Starfleet.

This event will last for 3 weeks starting on April 18th for PC players, and on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in mid 2019. All players level 10 and above will be able to participate, and can earn a TFO Commendation once every 20 hours.

This event will also debut a brand new system for Star Trek Online. Earn progress toward a Free Ship by participating each day in the Featured TFO Events that will be running from now until Fall of 2019. By playing these three Events, you can earn Coupon Progress Tokens each day, allowing you to eventually claim a ‘100% Discount Coupon: Tier 6 Ship’ that will allow you claim a free Tier 6 Starship of your choice from the Zen Store.

Get this, a real life politician got elected to the player run fake Space Congress.
He was banned from the game for allegedly leaking NDA’d materials from being a member of Space Congress. IRL politician is mad, asserts his innocence.

Then our beloved CCP comes out and releases a statement that admits they didn’t really do a full investigation around the alleged NDA leaks and banning him in the first place.
The memes are rampant, EVE mirrors real life, it’s a nightmare.

SWTOR
Game Update 5.10.3, “The Dantooine Incursion” has been announced, with more info coming this month.

If you, like us, know every word of A New Hope, then you will remember that Dantooine is the planet that Princess Leia told Grand Moff Tarkin was the location of the rebellion’s secret base. She was trying to keep him from blowing up Alderaan. This was a lie, of course, as the rebel base had been moved by then. The action in SWTOR takes place long before any of this, though.

We only know a little bit about this update, but we do know that it will include a new recurring event.

Also, we will be getting a double rewards week coming April 16th-23rd.

SWTOR Guild News
There was an AIE meetup in Boston on March 29th and much fun, and possibly beer, was had by all.

Star Wars Celebration!
April 11-15th in Chicago. A number of AIE’ers will be there and meeting up. Check out Max’s post in the #events channel in discord if you think you might be in the area and want to swing by. You don’t have to have SWC tickets for the meetup.

A cross-guild event that Marcus has been working on tirelessly for several weeks came to fruition this month. Members of AIE and two other guilds downed the secret boss in Terror from Beyond called the Dreadful Entity. This was a major effort because it involved getting more people together than any of the guilds had, getting them all a particular drop from a particular boss, getting an item to summon the boss, and clearing part of the Operation ahead of time. Credit goes to guildie Medullah for betting Marcus a million credits that he could not do it.

April MEGA will April 19th and is called “Ossus Takeover”.

MFN continues on Tuesday nights at 9PM Eastern, alternating weekly between the Imperial and Republic sides. If you are ever wondering which side we are on, there is always dated message posted in the Guild Message of the Day. There is no gear level requirement!

STO
First contact day event still ongoing until the 11th.
The mfn on Sunday night 8:30pm Eastern.
First contact day event you can get rewards like, Thompson submachine gun, launch toy, a skill point, Holo emitter Phoenix shuttle
The Pahvo event is also still going on for special rewards, though you are running out of time on it

EVE
UPDATE FROM THE WARFRONT

Test attempted a “crafty” spai technique of seeding Cyno Inhibs through a FRT spy and then transfering them to TEST just before a big fight in range of their own staging

ELO Knight (greatest of FRT FCs) bombed them into MEME category

Goon fleet got caught between two balls and a lance of power and in one reporters words “thems dudes eating the shit there”

https://clips.twitch.tv/FunGiftedHorseTTours

FRT won “first” Dino fight of this war many more to come

FRT = Fratnerity (the lead alliance in the Winter Coalition)
TEST and Goons are allied against us in the Winter Coalition

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

GAME NEWS

Shadowbringers hype!

Warning! Light spoilers, but we will try our hardest to avoid when we can.
Full Trailer
https://youtu.be/4tyuIh12_HU

After months of speculation, 3 Fan Fests, and tons of rumors, we have a pretty good take on what we will be doing in FFXIV on July 2nd, with a headstart for pre-orders on June 28th.

Where are we going? The First! A parallel universe that has some other problems. As the Warrior of Light, we fought back the darkness on Eorzea. The First has its own problems. Too much light energy, frying the world like a tater tot left in the deep fryer waaaay to long. So, as the hero, we will be sent to the First and to save Eorzea, we will need to save the First from the light, we so we will need to become the Warrior of Darkness to make things awesome again!

In terms of what it looks like, we are looking at a more “high fantasy” artstyle in Shadowbreakers. Lots of bright colors (going with the light theme), nature zones (again, 24-hour sunlight), and large, over the top cities.

What will be doing?

Questing! Saving the First! And running dungeons, which there will be 9 at launch. By comparison, Heavenward and Stormblood at 8 at launch.

New classes? You bet.

Gunbreaker! Gun wielding tank! Remember Final Fantasy 8, with Squall with his gunblade?
Well, like that, but without the self loathing.

 

Just announced, Dancer! Ranged DPS class! Throwing weapons at range, as well as dances to debuff the bad guys and buff the good guys.

The new classes will tentatively start at level 60.

New Races? Two of them!

The Viera!

The bunny-like race that lives in the trees. But where are the boy bunnies? Well, they are rare, so rare that players will not be able to be male Viera.
Newly announced new race, the Hrothgar!

A beast-like race will be playable as a male only race.

Combat changes? You betcha!

The resource TP (tech points, technicals, toilet paper, ect) will be gone!

Actions are also being reviewed and some actions will be removed, some actions gained.

Level cap will be 80, so another 10 levels to acquire in Shadowbringers.

Dwarves!

Small folk, beards, and almost never without their helmet.

What do they look like without a helmet?

They look like a Lalafel! In fact, they are lalafels, as in the first each race will have their own name, since it is a similar, but not exact world.

End game!

High end 8-player content, Eden!

This will tell us the story of how we can restore the other elements to the light ravaged world. It will also resolve around a new character, Gaia.

These encounters, story, and character are all designed by guest designer, Tetsuya Nomura. His previous work was the Director, designer, and character artist for the Kingdom Hearts series. So if his previous work is any indication, we are in for a treat of for the 8-player raids.

For the 24-man raids, it will be called YoRHa Apocalypse. This raid will feel like a spiritual sequel to NieR Automata. These raids also have guest designers, Yosuke Saito and Yoko Taro, game designers of the NieR series.

The Reconstruction of Ishgard!

So, Ishgard is pretty messed up. 1000 years of war with dragons will do that to your town. Now that the city had about an expansion to rest up after their war, we are going to be helping with the repairs in the city. This will provide some end-game content for the crafters and gatherers of the world. Rumor has it that after a while, it will also open up a new housing area in Ishgard!

Trust System!

You will be able to have certain NPCs follow you along in your adventures. Details are scarce still, but the overall gist is that you can hire notable NPCs to fight alongside you.

Server Redistributions
The NA servers will be split from 2 data centers to 3 data centers. The new datacenter will have some servers from the 2 existing ones, which includes Goblin, the server that AIE plays on. This means, our datacenter that we were a part of will change to the new Datacenter, and we will have some existing servers and new servers that we will be matched with. Furthermore, we will have the ability to visit other servers within our Datacenter. This change will happen prior to release of Shadowbringers, April 23. Free transfers will also be available during this time, so, if you are not the same server with AIE and want to be, here is a chance to jump over and hang with us.

The Twitch Prime deal that will get you the starter edition is still going on until May 3rd. This will get you the base game, which is up to level 50, all A Realm Reborn content, including patch content up to the start of the 1st Expansion, and 30 days of game time. This is not a demo but the same level of content as if you shelled out the 20 bucks for the game. If you end up continuing, there are a few different subscription types, including a single character subscription if you so choose.

If you purchase the current expansion, you will get access to both Heavensward and Stormblood with a single purchase of Stormblood. Shadowbringers can be pre-ordered for the pre-order bonuses which are available today. If you do not have the expansions, getting Shadowbringers will not unlock the previous expansions until June 28th, the start of the headstart of Shadowbringers.

We’d love to have you in FFXIV with us. We have housing with stables, crafting stations, mini-games, workshops, and other items in the house to help you with your adventures. The #FFXIV channel in discord is very active and since the visual quality of the game is crazy, our folks do populate the screenshots channel in Discord frequently. If you are looking to join us, just roll up a character on Goblin, tell us the name in the Discord channel (#FFXIV) and we’ll get you in.

WoW Q&A

Discussion of level squish, transmog (hide all slots except pants), removal of portals (adding a CoT Portal)

SWTOR
Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’ is on the Public Test Server right now and includes the new dynamic preview window and the new Guild Heraldry feature. Also, Bioware has bitten the development bullet and is re-working how interactable objects are created for the game. This effort will make world building, quest building, and probably just about everything easier to do and maintain in the future.

We are looking forward to news in April during Star Wars Celebration!

SWTOR Guild News
Pax East meetup in Boston on 3/29. If you think you can make it, hop into discord to find other people that are going and more info.

Star Wars Celebration – April 11th-15th in Chicago, There will be an AIE meetup coming as well as the SWTOR Cantina, which will be April 13th at 7:00pm CDT Marriot Marquis Chicago in the Grand Ballroom.

March MEGA was an awesome, possibly even EPIC night of guild pvp. April MEGA details to come.

MFN continues on Tuesday nights at 9PM Eastern, alternating weekly between the Imperial side and the Republic side. There is no gear requirement–literally. For some activities you may have to be level 50, though.

ESO
The Jester’s festival started on March 21st and will run until Tuesday April 2nd at 10am EST and during the event you get to use an item that will give you a 100% exp boost.

There is a jester located outside of Ebonheart, Vulkhel Guard, and Daggerfall. You can do one quest for them each day that will give a reward box. Also the first one you do each day has a chance for some unique style pages and mementos (plus 2 event ticket)s. Sadly, once again you can only earn the event ticket on one character per account per day.

Some of the achievements related to this event involves throwing 10 pies at people Thank you Looci for standing still and letting all of us AD folks toss pies at you for the first part of our MFN so we could get one of the achievements without needed to pelt strangers.

FFXIV
The FFXIV Japanese Fanfest has wrapped up. With Shadowbringer’s release, you’ll be available to adventure in the lands of Eorzea (and beyond) with two new races and two new classes!

For the races, we now have the female only Viera, and the male only Hrothgar, a race inspired by the Ronso of FF10. On top of that, after reaching level 60 in any other job, you’ll be able to take up the mantle of a Gunbreaker (a tank inspired by the gunblade wielders of FF8) and Dancer, a ranged dps using chakrams as their weapon to deal damage from afar while supporting their party with powerful dances

March 26 (that’s Tuesday!) Is patch 4.26, Requiem for Heroes – Part 2. MSQ will be wrapping up Stormblood and setting the stage for Shadowbringers.

April 23rd is the North American Data Center expansion and the start of the World Visit system. Free transfer will be available will lessened restrictions, from April 23rd to May 6.

AIE is on Goblin, our server will be moved to the new Crystal Data center. AIE will not be moving servers so that means grouping with AIE members will need you to be on the Crystal Data center.

Although, we’d love to see you on Goblin and with the AIE FC, we do realize that some of you have other commitments, communities, as well. As such, we do also run a cross world linkshell. AIE FC members, AIE community members and friends of AIE are welcome to join. Please drop in the discord or an officer to get an invite.

But most importantly, more Hildabrand on patch 4.56.

STO
There has also been a new TFO released this week, Peril over Pahvo. This is continuing the Mirror of Discovery story line and takes place in orbit over Pahvo. Complete the TFO on 14 different days to earn the Terran Guerilla Combat Armor in addition to marks, dilithium, and three Featured TFO Reward Boxes. The event lasts a little under 3 weeks

And with that, let’s find out what we’ve been up to lately.

GAME NEWS
Mewkow

Tetsemi

Anthem – Got to level 30 and have been poking into GM1 Strongholds and Missions and finally ticked over to Masterwork Colossus. The only piece that’s not Masterwork is my Z Shield, can’t seem to get anything to drop for it. I’ve got 2 of the 3 reputations through level 3 and working on the Sentinel reputation, ½ way to level 3. Also started equipping the other mechs with universal gear from the Colossus runs so they’re all rare/epic level right now, but still have slots with white quality in them because it’s javelin specific drops.

Role Playing D&D – We solved the murder on the flying boat, it was a gnome who finally snapped after one too many people ran over him and/or didn’t notice he was there and would cut in front of him, steal his food, etc. The last person to trip over him, was a druid, and he snapped, grabbed a ceremonial vine she had on her wrist and strangled her with it. He would have got away with it too, if he hadn’t kept the vine on him.

WoW – FERT Raiding, finally got King Rastakhan down and Mekatorque and tried Blockade which lived up to it’s name so we’ve reset for the week.
Almost have my necklace to level 44 (I need to knock out 4 islands before Tuesday to put it over the top) so I’m happy with the pace I’m keeping on it.
Finished the War Story (as it is so far) on both Horde and Alliance and really enjoying seeing it from both sides.

I have all the allied races unlocked and currently am focused on my Mah’gar Orc Shaman who just hit Northrend. Once she’s done, I’ll focus on my Zandalari Paladin for her armor and then hopefully they’re done with allied races for this expansion so I can flip over to AIE Alliance and level up my Void Elf Hunter, Dark Iron Paladin, Kul Tiran Druid (of course), Light Forged Dranaei Paladin, and Dwarf Hunter (for the heritage armor). I really love the idea of the allied races and their heritage armor, but c’mon, 90 to 100 levels is just … getting … old. I realize the leveling has been sped up, but mentally, it’s just such a daunting number.

Level squish / Paragon levels (discussion)

The event gives double reward drops for World and Delve Boss kills, increased rewards for completing Heists and Sacraments, and 1 event ticket for each Sacrament and Heist completed each day per account.

In guild related news, MFN is still Friday night at 9pm est.

FFXIV
General items: The Free Company attendance is way up. Many folks are taking advantage of the Amazon Prime deal which gets you a free copy of the Starter Edition which also comes with 30 days of game time. The Starter Edition is the vanilla version of the game, taking players up thru level 50 and associated 2.x patches. Many of these players have been sticking around, and have jobs in various levels. Now is a great time to start your adventure in Eorzea with AIE. The Twitch Prime deal lasts thru May 3rd, but we’d love to see you in the game today!

But what about those that do not have Twitch Prime? Or maybe your desktop or laptop may need a refresh so most of your modern gaming is done on the PS4? (sorry, no xbox1 or switch version yet) Well, there is a free trial that you can download that will let you play the game up to level 35. You can not join a Free Company with this type of account, but you will be able to join a cross world linkshell, which is FFXIV speak for a chat channel that spans over multiple servers. You will be able to talk with AIE folk there, as well as talk with people in the AIE community that may have characters on other servers. Of course, you can always talk to us in Discord as well.
As many of the people who are taking advantage of the Amazon Prime key are hitting 50, the ending 8-player dungeons do have some brutal queue times. Do yourself a favor and ask in Free Company Chat or Discord for people to jump in the queue with you. We can take a 45 min-1h queue to 15 seconds, and we want to help you.

The Shadowbringers pre-order bonus items, the little baby Gremlin and the Aetheryte Earrings, an item that scales with you, modifies its stats for your job, and provides a 30% boost in XP gained while level 70 and below are available now for preorders.

Quick tip for pre-orders. To get the bonus do the following. Get the code from your retailer, SE Store will have the code from their store, Amazon will email you a code. Take the code and follow the web link in the email or store page. This will take you to the pre-order bonus page. Pick your platform and then enter the code you were given. This will output a code that you can put into the mog station to get your pre-order bonuses.

DC redistribution is happening soon! Goblin, AIE’s server, will be moved to the new Crystal data center. At this time, AIE will be riding the Goblin wave and remaining on the server as it is migrated over to Goblin. When the redistribution happens, there will be free transfer provided with relaxed item and Gil limits. If you have other characters elsewhere, transferring to Goblin may be an option for you.

Fun nights are still Wednesday. Other options (nights and times) are being considered, but let us know in Discord on your suggestions! However, we do have a sizeable crew on every night! You don’t need to wait for a fun night to have fun with AIE! Talk in FC chat, join voice and dive into your adventures together

The Seasonal event, Little Ladies’ Day, will be wrapping up on March 13th. Don’t forget to get your change to get the seasonal items, such as the Flower Crown and the housing items Festive Chirashi-zushi (your guess is as good as mine), Festive Sushi Balls, and Magicked Prism Daisies before they go up on the Mog Station.

The final pre-expansion fan fest will be held on March 23-24 over in Japan (A little under 2 weeks away!) What will be announced? What weird costume will Yoshi-P come out as? Will we get the full trailer for the expansion? Will the time zone difference mess with our sleep schedules? We’ll find out then!

Also a reminder, the Twitch Prime deal is for PC only. Not Mac, not Steam, not PS4.

STO
Guild news: STO continues to run a MFN on Sunday night at 8:30PM Eastern. Characters level 10(Lieutenant Commander) and up are welcomed.

Game news front, on April 11th, they will be shutting down the Foundry system. The Foundry was a tool used for players to create content for the game.

GAME NEWS
New Planet and Daily Area – Ossus

Ossus is home to the ruins of a truly ancient Jedi Temple and is currently the site of a power struggle between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. It is not a welcoming planet and is covered in rocky hills and sand (it gets everywhere). Even so, the Jedi who chose this place to lay low have been successful with carving out a life, mainly through some innovative farming methods. Old characters reappear and interesting new ones emerge in the introductory story to the area. There is a lair boss here, daily missions, two new tier gears, new rep to grind, two world bosses, two new datacrons, and new companions.

End of PvP Season 10

PvP Season 10 ended and Season 11 pre-season began. Top 96 rewards were distributed. Normal Season 10 rewards will go out when Season 11 begins, which will be RSN.

Double XP Week was Feb 19 – Feb 26. Much command points and many levelings were to be had!

New Guild Features

Bioware has added guild leveling and guild perks to the game. The perks last for a period of weeks and are purchased by the guild. The perks you can purchase depend on which parts of the guild flagship you have opened. Perks come in a wide variety and include things like increased gathering and crafting efficiency, increased experience gain, increased reputation gain, increased mounted speed, increased gains in Warzones (pvp), increased drop rates in Operations, increased stats in certain situations, and many more versions of all those and some that I’m sure I’ve left out.

All Conquest activity by guild members contributes to guild leveling and we are leveling nicely on both the Imperial side and the Republic side. Each time a guild levels, it receives Guild Commendations which can then be used to purchase guild perks.

There are some new voices on the SWTOR Official Forums these days including a new member of the Community Team – Dan Steed and Mike Bradley, who is a Live Producer. Mike has been paying attention to PvP threads.

Guild News

MFN continues to alternate weekly. If you are ever curious about which week is which, it’ll always be posted in the GMOTD.
February MEGA (Monthly Guild Activity.. what does the E stand for again?) was a datacron crawl, including the two new ones on Ossus. March MEGA will be some good ol’ Pub side PvP using the new private warzone feature.

– Kini, any NOOB raid updates for us?

Kini- Noob Raid one shot Zul and Mythrax last night, after clearing the previous bosses. It was awesome.

SWTOR
Swtor got a new lair boss called “Hive of the Mountain Queen”. It’s on the planet Ossus and is basically a monster created by an insane Sith Lord. It’s giving everyone a good time. We downed in on story mode in our raid teams and also during MEGA, which we did in 16 man mode with the help of friends and one lone (but awesome) pug. Also, someone who shall remain nameless (Marcus) set off a bomb that killed 12 of us. We are thinking that record will stand for a long, long time. The next harder mode (Veteran) is giving everyone fits. We are up for the challenge though!

Speaking of MEGA, February’s MEGA was this past Friday and killing the Hive Queen is not the only thing we did. We went to Ossus and got the two latest datacrons. Both of them were essentially jumping puzzles with one of them being in such close quarters that at certain camera angles you could see the inside of your own head. Thankfully, our good jumpers got to the target and were able to summon the rest of us.

In podcast news, both Working Class Nerds and The Escape Podcast are still going strong with WCN hitting their 37th episode and EPC their 280th.

In guild news
– The guild in SWTOR has officially retired the requirement for new members/alts to put in applications. If you know someone that wishes to join AIE in SWTOR, just give them the discord info and tell them to ask for an invite there.

– BCavanagh wrote and compiled responses for a survey regarding people’s preferences for MFN. We will be using that info to help us decide from week to week what activities we do in MFN.

– Look for a survey in the near future from Marcus about what your preferences are for MEGA going forward.

Reminder that MFN is on the Republic side this week.

SoL (Soldiers of Light) beat the Mutated Geonosian Queen and got the hidden achievement

FFXIV
Wednesday night fun nights at 10pm. Other days/times will be added later, but let us know your thoughts in discord!

Activity is high, thanks Amazon and Twitch in particular!

Shadowbringers pre-orders are live with pre order bonuses available on 3/1, including a special leveling earrings to help us get to 70 a bit faster.

Confused with the class system? Check out this video from Abovan on that very subject: https://youtu.be/AFyGFn2R7pk

Plenty of room for new warriors of light. Drop on by the FFXIV channel is discord and we can help you get started. Plenty of people around to offer referrals or even codes for the game.

STO
There is new Task Force Operation out, Pahvo Dissension. It’s a ground based operation focused around the new Mirror of Discovery Storyline.
MFN has started back up. They are currently scheduled Sunday night, 8:30 PM EST. Any rank Lieutenant Commander and higher is invited to join.

EVE
Welcome new community officer and Eve Director @Huck , he is Cersei in game in Eve.

Welcome back Space Trucker Extraordinaire Erick Nolen @redrum. He enjoys his time back by instantly losing a 1.4Billion Isk Carrier. Welcome back

The Russco-Imperial-Legacy is flailing on the bongos of war. The 6 month peace treaty that almost all of Eve is under expires on March 22nd. At least moderate to large scale warfare is expected

The Annual Burn Jita Player event is currently taking place. This is where hundreds of players converge on the largest market and in the game and kill Hundreds of Billions of isk worth of shipping traffic every day. Traffic advisory is recommended at least through Tuesday.

GW2
Our sympathies to the ArenaNet GW2 team , who are currently going through layoffs.

On Tuesday the new Warclaw WvW mount becomes available! It is useable in PvE as well. We don’t know yet how it will be claimed, but it will almost certainly involve WvW playing, so if you want to know how to WvW, come talk to us in the gw2 discord channel.

LOTRO
The LOTRO team just published their Producer’s Letter yesterday, and it’s a look ahead for the year.

https://www.lotro.com/en/game/articles/producer%E2%80%99s-letter-%E2%80%93-february-2019-%E2%80%93-look-ahead

First, our most important goal for the year is to continue to tell your ongoing story. We are excited to continue the Black Book of Mordor as it winds through Middle-earth and leads players to our next expansion. The tale will take us to the Vale of Anduin, where we will explore the history, important events, and secrets of that area. As the year continues, we will unveil more tales in the Vale, and then follow the story back towards Mordor to Minas Morgul itself. Among the many dangers you’ll face will be Shelob herself as you learn what she has been up to, and how she is influencing the future of Middle-earth.

And in ongoing event news, the Skirmish Event continues through March 11th!

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

GAME NEWS

Update 21 arrives February 25th for PC players. It contains a new Battlegrounds map for PVP called Eld Angar that has several different game types available such as Capture the Relic, Domination, and Chaosball using one area of the version of the map and Crazy King and Deathmatch using another. (don’t ask me what any of this means, I don’t pvp)

There will also be new PvP rewards for people who compete in both the Alliance War and Battlegrounds.

Also the first part of the Season Of the Dragon adventure starts on the 25th as well. with the release of the Wrathstone DLC. A four person dungeon called the Dwarven Vault of Mhuvnak will open which has new Dwarven automations, deadly traps and goblins to get in the way of reaching the objective. Rewards that can drop from this dungeon included 3 new armor/weapon sets and a new Monster Mask.

This new DLC is available for all ESO plus members and in the crown store.

FFXIV

STO
Double XP Weekend!
https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11082783-xp-weekend%21

For guild structures: we are focusing on upgrading the Spire.

Next Sunday 2/17, we are going to be running an MFN. 8:30PM EST. Details are still being worked on.

There is a competition for a chance at the new ships for mirror of Discovery: Win a new starship that really brings the pain in Star Trek Online: Mirror of Discovery!.https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-trek-online/star-trek-online-mirror-of-discovery-giveaway

ESO
The Morrowind Celebration is started on Feb 7th and runs though Monday February 18th 10am est. Drops from resource notes and all bosses will be doubled during the event and you get double reward boxes from all the daily quests in the zone. You also earn event tickets for the first world boss daily and delve boss daily each day. So a max of 2 tickets per day per account. These tickets go towards feathers and berries for the Indrik mount.

EVE
GREETINGS SPACE FRIENDS! And Happy new year!!!!

We have a series of events that I’m planning for all of February

For the First weekly event we’re going to celebrate the Lucky Pig!!! Everyone who logs on over the next 7 days will have the chance to Receive Luck ™. Some activities may help sway the luck gods so go on those fleets! And join in on Space Communism, Space Capitalism, and Space…idk Jainism…

I’m going to be filling up Minmatar ships (rusty red colored ships) and filling them with goodies to contract out to people randomly

Week 2 will be a Fitfleet fitness “Challenge of the skinny pig!” Just document your road to better health (whatever is medicinally advisable for all of us in different stages of life) in our fitfleet channel and receive something at the end of the week

Week 3 is….going to be something….idk yet probably participation based. Thinking Exploding Pig. Probably a Red Envelope fleet

But week 4 will be a Chili Recipe Cookoff I think….Pork based

LOTRO
“Saturday February 9th at 9 server time or 15 minutes after AIE podcast ends I will be running everyone’s favorite content ………Epic Battles. They will be starting with the War of Gondor: Retaking Pelargir. “What are the requirements?” You ask. Great question, you need to be at least lvl 10 and have Helm’s Deep expansion. Great and patient attitudes a plus. All are welcome to attend.”

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

GAME NEWS
Something something, SHADOWBRINGERS! New expansion this summer, July 2nd!

Pre-orders are now available. Preorder now and get early access, goodies. Early access will start on June 28th.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjPVSF2dpUE

New Classes

Gunbreaker – New, Gun-sword, Gunblade tank class!

Blue Mage, available now!

New 24-player raid with guest designers Yosuke Saito and Yoko Taro.

Yoko Taro picture, because we need this.

 

New Race, The Viera!

Very similar to the Viera in FF Tactics and 12.

The Restoration of the Holy See of Ishgard

New Game+

Trusts!

And more to be revealed at the Tokyo Fan Fest

The End of Stormblood!

Patches! New Content, new stories!

Patch 4.55 is slated for next Tuesday.

More Eureka, Rival Wings Update.

Doman mahjong was added. This is more similar to Japanese Mahjong and not solitaire Mahjong you may be familiar with. This plays like a combination of poker and gin rummy in a 4 player setting.

Future patch

Data Center Reshuffle. Today, Goblin, our server is on the Aether Data Center, which is our grouping of servers that allows for party finder groups, party matching and so forth. Coming soon, Goblin will be reshuffled into a new datacenter, Crystal.

At this time, we as a Free Company will remain on Goblin with no plans on moving, and therefore will eventually end up on the Crystal datacenter. We do have a Cross-World linkshell setup that anyone is welcome to join, if you are on another server but still wish to talk to AIE folk. Ask in the #FFXIV channel in discord for details.

You will be able to freely visit any other server on your datacenter!

Since last time we were on, Alphascape, 4 Lords, and the end of the Return to Ivalice 24-player raid story in the Orbonne Monastery!

Got Twitch Prime? How about Amazon Prime? Well, play the starter edition now, for FREE!

FC Post Valentine’s Day Calamity. Get your toons refreshed in the FC or else they will removed if they are over 180 days offline. Officers, this includes you. February 15th is the deadline.

Also see the pinned message in #raidteam-news for more information on this project.

See show notes below for more!

SWTOR
Last week was MEGA Galactic Star Fighter edition

We flew around planets and were learning how to do GSF. Max was the instructor.

The guild hit Level 10 in our guild level. Thats a lot of work and we’re proud of the team.

Deathstar Troopers The sunday night ops team beat the second boss in Dread Fortress in HardMode. They were working on it for 3 weeks. This is a big accomplishment for the team.

ESO
Update 21 will be out soon (no date yet) and will start off The Season of the Dragon. The update contains 2 brand new dungeons (part of your ESO Plus membership or for purchase in the in game store) as well as several base game additions. The base game additions include a new Battlegrounds map, PvP rewards, passive class ability changes, an update to the Guild Trader interface, and a Zone Guide system.

FFXIV
Feb 15. The Post Valentine’s Day Calamity. Get your characters refreshed, as on Feb 15, characters over 180 days offline will be removed including officer characters.

FFXIV European fanfest also starts on February 2nd at 10am central european time. Expected annoucements include a new race and a new class https://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/3cfa291260acfacc545bb2958df00ec64fb1926d

Our server, Goblin will be transitioning to the new data center, Crystal. At this time, no plans of moving.

We don’t have plans of moving at this time, and transfers to and from the server have been announced as “affected players will be offered transfers”. Nothing beyond that.

So, if you play with AIE on a different server that will remain in Aether, transfers might be available. More info passed along when we get it.

House needs to be redecorated. Any aspiring interior designers that want to help out, reach out in the discord channel.

As for in game news, the new class Blue Mage is now live. If you are looking for a unique experience in FF14, this new class is like no other. With a permanent open world monster experience boost, this class levels quickly, and you’ll be busy collecting all manner of game breaking abilities, which is why you won’t see these classes in any normal group content.

We also have Valentione’s day coming up very soon, so please look forward to it.

STO
Mirror of Discovery is live and the 9th Anniversary is going on. By getting enough anniversary vouchers, you have a chance of getting a Tier 6 Vulcan Scout ship from Q

Anniversary event for STO. Omega particle collection, and a daily quest that ends in a free ship.

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

Destiny 2
Just a reminder for folks looking to join, please read the pinned message in the #destiny2 channel in AIE Discord for all the information.

ESO
Something big is being revealed/announced on January 15th at 5pm Eastern. Some of it has been datamined/leaked, and it looks like it’s going involve Dragons, Breaking, Cat men and a new class of the -mancer variety.

Twitch live stream planned for the 15th to talk about what is planned for 2019 which they are referring to as The Season of the Dragon. As of right now, thoughts are it will involve a new zone focused on the Khajitt, dragons, and possibly a necromancer class.

Currently the Midyer Mayhem pvp event is in progress so people can earn event tickets to buy berries to evolve the Indrik that was obtainable in 2018. They have three additional events planned for the first quarter – The Morrowind Celebration, Thieves Guild & Dark Brotherhood Celebration, and the Jester’s Festival. Depending on the dates of these events, we will focus on them for our MFN’s as they happen.

Also a reminder that MFN in ESO is still going strong. We run every Friday night at 9pm EST .

WoW
We now have 6 raid team participating the guild bank / raid bank program. If your raid team would like to participate, please contact Syreyne in game or in Discord and/or post in the #raidteam-news channel in AIE Discord. Also see the pinned message in #raidteam-news for more information on this project.

SWTOR
In SWTOR we are learning the ropes of the new guild system. Both guilds have been ranking up nicely and every week we have to decide which perks to buy or if it makes sense to wait.

Speaking of Conquest, we won a planet! It’s a world of refineries and poison, but it’s ours! AIE is on the road to galaxy domination!

MFN continues to run on Tuesday nights starting at 9PM Eastern. Tuesday the 15th, we will be on the Republic side.

MEGA is coming up this Saturday (the 19th) with a night of friendly GSF. The asteroids might not be friendly, but the guildies will be.

FFXIV
AIE in Final Fantasy. We’re still here, folks! Drop by the community Discord #ffxiv channel to catch us up with what you’re doing in the game and to coordinate events, daily roulettes, new dungeons, trials and raid help!

Note that our world, Goblin, will be departing the Aether Data Center and become part of the migration to the new Crystal Data Center. We realize this is a game changer for many and if this will affect your ability to play with AIE please let us know now. We’ll also announce details on how AIE will be dealing with this change on the AIE website at https://aie-guild.org/ffxiv when we have all the final details.
As a side note: Those that may still be on Gilgamesh, that server will NOT be moving to the Crystal datacenter with Goblin, so those servers will be separated. For those that haven’t had time or money to do a server move, they did mention they would be allowing free server transfers once the moves start to happen.

Expansion announcement: Shadowbringers

GAME NEWS
So, a few questions for all of us.

Question one- what was the geekiest gift you gave?
Tetsemi: Pretty much everything I gave was geeky and clothing related, even to my FERT Secret Santa
Mkallah: I gave a lot of geeky gifts, but I think my favourite was the Fallout bottle cap bracelet that I made for Mrs Mew.
Mewkow: Much like Tets, most of my gifts tend to be rather geeky. I’ve gotten a number of fallout cosplay items for MrsMew, and reached back for an old school geeky gift by giving a DVD of Chess in Concert to OldLadyFranks. I’ve also sprinkled the gift of gaming all over.

Question two: what was the geekiest gift you got?
Tetsemi: William Gibson’s ArchAngel
Mkallah: SO many geeky gifts! But, I think my favourite is the D&D Arts and Arcana book from my best friend.
Mewkow: Metric tons of fallout goodies.

Question three: What is your geeky New Years resolution?
Tetsemi: Put more character into my characters
Mkallah: focus on research and writing. And, I should play a game here or there. I intended to while on break from work, but never got around to it.
Mewkow: Spread the love to more of my ongoing games instead of hyper focusing on just 1 or 2.

Question four: What are you looking forward to in the New Year’s around AIE?
Tetsemi: Nerdtacular 2020, oh wait, this year, Phoenix Fan Fusion with AIE/Tadpool Folks.
Mkallah: getting back to planning more Phoenix area AIE/Tadpool events
Mewkow: Ready to see what our AIE raiding teams do with the next raid, and making sure to keep better tabs on their progress.
