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

GAME NEWS

Marcus- thann was trying to buy trash items to win sema san diego. What a great week.
Deathstar troopers has been running HM TOS. progging
Looci – and he created a bidding war in general chat for some of the trash items, at one point I think fangs were at 60K per fang!

Everything is awesome!

One of the Devs posted that we will be getting some “crazy stuff” in 2020, so speculation is rife. The most likely ideas are that Darth Malgus will sprout tentacles and come under the power of the Old Gods and we will get Lalafells as a playable race.

If you are a subscriber and have not logged in super recently, hop in and find the Umbaran Patrol Tauntaun in your mailbox. If you are not a subscriber yet, you have til Feb 29th to subscribe and earn this mount.

We’ve had two MFNs since the last AIE podcast including one particularly wild and wooly trip into The Terror from Beyond. We had run out of time for the last fight, but we had some people with us that had never seen it, so we decided to barge in and just take a look. It’s a multi-phase, positioning-heavy battle, so it was more of a lark than anything, but we won anyway! And that was with two healers disconnecting over 9000 times… at least.

CLOSE
And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Marcus and Looci for joining us. And don’t forget, after the show is the AIE podcast stream, this week they are doing:

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. Mkallah is at @cyberwaif,and Tetsemi is at @ivorytiger. We record live with video every other Sunday at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific. You can join the chatroom and play along with us on our website at https://aie-guild.org/podcast-live-stream/ and our Discord server for chat at https://aie-guild.info/discord . Our theme was composed by the amazing Andrew Allen, follow him at @keyswithsoul! or visit his website http://keyswithsoul.com !

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

Overly Dramatic News – @HuntsTheWind

Just a programing note, our next show will be in three weeks due to some RL scheduling conflicts. So March 1st, we’ll be talking to Someone in some game. So until then, AIE…

FFXIV
See Game Notes

ESO
Update 25 is coming soon and will be the start of the year-long Dark Heart of Skyrim adventure. It will bring performance improvements and a patching overhaul as well as the first DLC of the year called Harrowstorm. Harrowstorm will have new item sets and collectables as well as 2 new dungeons that set up the events of the upcoming Greymoor Chapter. The dungeons will be Unhallowed Grave, a long-forgotten tomb, and Icereach, where you get to confront witches. There is no set date for Harrowstorm yet, but eta is sometime in Q1 of 2020. We know it will be out before Greymoor launches and the release date for Greymoor is May 18th for PC/Mac and June 2 for console.

EVE
Settled in the new home system. Bringing up their lil cubby holes ADM’s so they can truly start doing big boy stuff. Hoots has plans to start making stuff for corpies and corpies are helping by donating needed materials for said process and the coalition is being harassed by russians..again.

LOTRO
They are going to delay the start of SNL until after the podcast is over.

And with that, let’s get back to Abo and Durus and find out what’s going on in Final Fantasy 14

GAME NEWS
First off, congrats are in order for Testsemi, as he has completed the MSQ and is caught up to the current story content in FFXIV. That’s the base game with 5 patches (and some sub-patches), Heavensward, 5 patches and change, Stormblood with its handful of patches, Shadowbringers, and its one major patch.

Remember that there’s still plenty of story content to do after you finish the MSQ! Raids in all 4 expansions, trials, 24-player stuff which is heavy on the story, plot, and intrigue, maps, crafting (yes, even the crafting classes and quests have a story!), and the legend of the world’s greatest detective, Hildabrand! This game is bursting at the seams with content and character! And we’re here to help you make sense of it all.

TALK ABOUT THE WEDDING
Theresa and Viv’s Ceremony of Eternal Bonding is scheduled for Wednesday, 1/29 at 8:00 PM Eastern. Please see either of them or check the FC chest for an invitation that you must possess to enter the event space at the appointed time.

Live Letter Part LVII
Thursday, February 6 at 3:00 a.m. (PST)

Valentione’s Day
Wed, Jan 29 to Sun, Feb 9.
Vote for your colorful “emissary of Love”

In the meantime, we are running a weekly map night, Saturday nights at 8pm until we run out of maps. Map nights are using the treasure maps found from mining, botaning (picking flowers or chopping trees), fishing, or just buying them from the market boards. Using a map will consume the map, but show a little piece of the map from the game with the big red X for the treasure. You then go to that location and dig for treasure. Of course, each chest is booby-trapped, so you will need to fight off a bunch of monsters to get to your treasure. Once everyone in your party gets their loot, there is a chance that a portal to a bonus zone will appear!

This bonus zone is only available thru 8-player treasure maps. Going into the zone seems to act normal. Go in, beat up on some bad guys, get loot. But then the party has to make a choice between two doors. One door leads to the next room, with cash and fabulous prizes await. The other door will set off alarms, sirens, and kick the party out of the dungeon.

The map nights are very casual, super fun, and very profitable. Anyone level 80 can join in. You don’t have to bring a map to join in, but bringing maps helps everyone out.

FFXIV is wrapping up the current 5.1 patch cycle, and is starting up the hype machine for 5.2.

The even number patches are fun because they have a new gear tier and raid tier introduced. So, as a guild, we tend to do the story mode raids on a regular basis, as that is the difficulty that most people want to do. So, when the patch does hit, expect to have us run some fun nights thru the new Eden tier.

https://www.buzzsprout.com/143519/2549677

Nick and Marcus look ahead to the games their most looking forward to coming out in 2020, and of course recap what they've been up to in their gaming lives.

WoW
Patch 8.3 is out and the guild activity level seems to be up as people are doing daily quests, looking for groups for Horrific visions, and camping rare mount spawns.

The new raid opened on Tuesday and a number of raid teams are progressing through it while Blizzard hurriedly fixes in bugs with hotfixes and extended maintenance windows.

If you’re looking for a raid team, make sure you check the #raid-recruitment channel in AIE Discord and if you’re looking for a group to run Horrific visions or the Heroic version of Mechagon, make sure you check the #lfg channel for people looking for groups.

UMAMI applications are no longer a requirement for WoW Retail. We are opening up guild recruitment to the server with the in-game recruitment system. New and current members of AIE can continue to use Discord, aielfo in-game community, as well as the new Blizzard guild recruitment system to request guild invites. We want to thank Stigg for everything he has done with our UMAMI system and Greenwall, and we can’t wait to see what else he has in store for AIE.

Patch 8.3 Survival Guide

The third major Battle for Azeroth content patch, Visions of N’Zoth, will be releasing on January 14th (US) / 15th (EU).

This new content patch will include N’Zoth Assaults in two zones: Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms. N’Zoth has taken over and Corrupted these areas. Taking part in these Assaults will earn you reputation with the Uldum Accord and Rajani and earn you a new currency: Coalescing Visions.

Two new Allied Races are being added to the game: Vulpera for the Horde and Mechagnomes for the Alliance. Allied Race Death Knights are also available this Patch for players who have pre-purchased Shadowlands. Goblin and Worgen Heritage Armor is being added this Patch as well! If you’ve been wanting to transmog Legendary weapons, Patch 8.3 will finally allow you to do so! … except for the Warglaives of Azzinoth, those are still Demon Hunter appearance only. This Patch also helps If you’ve been looking for a unique reward from Island Expeditions, as there are new Salvage Crates which can be bought with Seafarer’s Dubloon. Lastly, the Auction House is getting a much needed rework.

More content is coming later in the Patch on January 21st when Season 4 of Battle of Azeroth begins. This marks the opening of the new Ny’alotha Raid, new PvP Season and new Mythic+ Seasonal Affix, Awakened, as well as Heroic Darkshore. Season 4 will also come with an overall Item Level increase to most systems, with the cap from most systems being 475 except for the final two bosses of Ny’alotha dropping 485 gear.

Mewkow- WoW Classic
https://www.wowhead.com/news=305109/classic-wow-content-drop-on-feb-12th-blackwing-lair-level-50-class-quests-eterna

Blackwing Lair

The Blackwing Lair attunement quest, “Blackhand’s Command”, will become available on all realms tomorrow, Friday, January 10.

Level 50 Class Quests

All players, starting at level 50, can now begin class-specific questlines offered by class trainers in capital cities. These quests conclude with a choice of one of three powerful rare items.

New Reputation Rewards

The Argent Dawn, Thorium Brotherhood, Timbermaw Hold, Silverwing Sentinels, and Warsong Outriders faction vendors now offer reputation reward items that were added in patches 1.6 and 1.7 of original WoW.

Eternal Quintessence

Players who complete “Hands of the Enemy” and reach Revered reputation with Hydraxian Waterlords may now obtain Eternal Quintessence from Duke Hydraxis.

Darkmoon Faire – Coming Earlier in February

The first Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic will get underway in early February, with barkers and the Faire setup appearing on Friday, February 7, and the festivities opening on Monday, February 10. Look for the many Darkmoon Cards that make up the beasts, elementals, portals, and warlords sets to begin dropping from enemies and bosses on Wednesday, February 5.

SWTOR
The holidays in SWTOR were filled with MEGAs, MFNs, snowballs and wookiee hugging. Several guildies were so industrious, they achieved the Wookiee Hugging Champion achievement! Wookiees give the best hugs.

In 2020, we are looking forward to opening the rest of the rooms in both guild flagships, many Operations successes, MFNs galore, MEGAs extraordinaire, Conquest targets met, meetups, trivia, and, of course, lightning

ESO
On January 16th at 5pm EST there will be a Bethesda live stream to reveal the Chapter and year long story. They will have twitch drops live during the stream so you can unlock rewards.
MFN is still on Friday nights at 9pm est where we run dungeons, rampage though zones killing bosses, obtaining sky shards, and looting anything not nailed down, and occasionally jump off cliffs.

FFXIV
We had the first maps night in quite awhile and it was fairly epic. We did level 80 maps, AKA Zonureskin Maps, and reached the final chamber 4 times! That means a +100K payday each time. With total Gil and value of mats dropped in excess of 15M gil.

Map Nights will be a regular Saturday night event going forward, just ping Kelseer on the #ffxiv channel in AIE Discord if you want to join in. Map groups hold about 8 people per team. The Gliderskin maps are more tuned for solo players, if you didn’t want to get a full group.

Raiding will be picking up again soon. Speak with @Durus or @Abovan for details. We’ll likely begin with some of the early extreme fights (Titania and Innocence) to gauge where everyone is, and help gear folks up.

Patch 5.2 is coming in February and includes

-New MSQ (beginning of the end of SHB’s story)
-New Dungeon, “Anamnesis Anyder” (Trust Compatible)
-New beast tribe focusing on gathering, the Qitari
-New Chronicles of a New Era (5.0’s Trials quest chain)
-First Trial will be Ruby Weapon
-New Raid, “Eden’s Verse” (One boss will be related to Ramuh)
-Upgradable Equipment quest series (Relic quest)

EVE
Settled in new home system. Bringing up our lil cubby holes ADM’s so we can truly start doing big boy stuff. Hoots has plans to start making stuff for corpies and corpies are helping by donating needed materials for said process

LOTRO
We finished off 2019 with a lot of fun during SNL. We have stuff planned for 2020. Stay tuned for upcoming details.

And with that, let’s get back to US and find out what’s going on in since the break.

GAME NEWS
Mkallah
I’m a mom, it was christmas time, I was running around from December 12th until December 26th. I think my final count was twelve pounds of marshmallows, ten pounds of fudge, eight batches of various cookies and bars, three pies, one cake, and one batch of rice krispy treats. ANd, that was just the baking, There was also a lot of hiking, cooking, wrapping, and I even slept in a little. I did manage to read two full books- Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow, quickly followed by The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo- because one needs dark modern fantasy dealing with secret magical societies and Yale after 450 pages of the Weinstine investigation.

We had our annual Yule party and our Fert and Friends Christmas eve sushi lunch. We saw Star Wars opening night, and immediately afterwards I got a text from our friend MIlls that he wants to do a Star Wars game taking place 100 years after Rise of the Skywalker and then he gave us the Force and Destiny book for Christmas! I am looking at a Twi’lek Mystic Seer, not good with people, but super connected to the Living Force.

Only one of my D&D groups was semi active this season, but we have managed to get roped into helping a clan of wood elves deal with a mythical monster that has cursed them. And, you know that feeling when you wander into the wrong zone in a video game and almost get your ass handed to you? Yeah, we had that happen.

Mewkow
Still slowly taking down the inside Xmas decorations, the outside were dutifully taken down the weekend after New Year’s Day. Had a decent setup at the new house.

After catching up in the Mandolarian, and seeing the latest saga movie, AND bravely watching the entire Star Wars special (with a little help from riff trax), we have started the clone wars viewing with the intent to complete that 6-7 season show.

Tons of time in FF14 as of late. With about 5 active ‘alts’ in a game that you don’t need to alt in, there is plenty to be done. That means I’ll have done the Shadowbringer MSQ 5 times, and yes it is that good. Also working on dragging others along for the fun when possible. Completed the Eden raids, and the Nier raid a few times, but have not touched the Eden Savage raids yet, and have no desire to go anywhere near the Alexander Ultimate. Explain that fight a bit. Touch on crafting/gathering.

Past week, taking a short break every now and then to poke around FO76. They have the Wastelanders beta coming out this month, and I wanted to be ready to go when that happens. Slowly moving forward in the Pioneer scouts challenges.

Very little time in WoW lately. Seems like the raid scene is on hiatus until the patch. Here’s hoping they solve the absence of tier sets and fix or mitigate the azerite armor.

Tetsemi
Finished the MSQ up through patch 5.1 in FFXIV on my bard, and now working on the Order of the Twin Adder grand company progress as well as leveling up my Red Mage (which is apparently changing a bit in 5.2) as well as my Samurai.

Other than logging in for guild numbers and guild clean up, pretty much took most of December and beginning of January off of WoW, but looking forward to patch 8.3 and if any of the systems will be interesting to me. Oh, I did do the Anniversary LFR with the raid team and got the World Breaker mount, but the pull of FFXIV was too strong to entice me to stay engaged in WoW to do either Korak’s revenge or level any alts.

No D&D on break, however, the group has gotten sucked into the new Force & Destiny system for Star Wars and created a Sentinel Shadow who is hunting down Dark Side force sensitive and force users. Really looking forward to learning a new system and rolling the dice again. Will be the first game our whole family will be playing in that’s not a one-shot, guest appearance, or run this character because the player is out.

Also, we watched all 8 episodes of the Mandalorian, and can’t wait for more. If the Kenobi series is going to be anything like the Mandalorian, especially the two episodes Deborah Chow directed, I can not wait. So ready for some non-Skywalker series that explore more of the Solo and Rogue One type environments and stories, bring it on!

Working Class Nerds – Episode 58: Slayer Has Spoken
https://www.buzzsprout.com/143519/2140667

Marcus and Nick are joined by Slayer this week. Nick talks about his experiences playing Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and the group breaks down the first two episodes of The Mandelorian.

Highlights from WCN
2019 was a great year for Working Class Nerds.
-We had an AIE show discussing all the games that we play
– We had the Bioware team on 2 times with Musco and Matt Pucevich on. We broke the news on the first boss in the new operation.
– We had Holly Fields on the show who was Nadia Grell in game. It was so amazing to hear all about voice acting. Also we topped it off getting her to tell us “Shut up Max!”

Guild Highlights
Summer of Love 2019

In WoW we had a World Quest Party, a Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, held our annual Remembrance day the Shrine of the Fallen Hero, COOP’ed the Alliance, and had a lot of fun at Dark Moon Faire!

In SWTOR they held a MEGA Event, a MFN event, and held their Remembrance day in Juran Mountains on Alderaan.

In FFXIV they had a special MFN and met at the Free Company house for Remembrance day.

In STO they held an event on Risa (not Rishi) and met at the Memorial at Wolf 359 for Remembrance Day.

In Eve they got together in Discord to join in Remembrance Day.

In GW2 they had a special MFN, ran dungeons with Maellung, and met at Lion’s Arch on the Field of the Fallen for Remembrance Day.

In LOTRO they met on the Hill behind the Prancing Pony in Bree for Remembrance Day and held a special MFN Edition.

Nomads
Last month worth doing an old style Nomads raid in Lotro. Next stop will be GW2

WoW Classic
Nevermore has given us one heck of an update on WoW Classic!

WoW Classic launched just a few months ago on August 26th, 2019 and our Horde AIE Guild on the Pagle server has been thriving! :tada: We are constantly hovering close to the max guild limit of 1000 members. So occasionally we purge characters who have been offline the longest. If this happens to you, just jump back into AIELFO to request an invite again!

We got the guild set up – as soon as server issues allowed! – And were able to nickel and dime… Oh, we mean “silver & copper” our way to 10g to purchase our guild tabard within three days!

We waited a few weeks for guildies to have time to log in and create their characters and then all gathered together for our first huge AIE group photo! :heart:

Special shout out to our AIE Greeters in WoW Classic: Eagle, Kazrik, & Adande! Thank you for helping with invites when an Officer is unavailable. We appreciate you!

A main goal in WoW Classic was to bring back one of the guild’s cherished traditions… the AIE Guild Craft Faire which was held in Undercity on November 17th, 2019!

It wasn’t easy, but we did it! >.< Storage was a huge issue for us without guild banks and very limited bag space. Artisan level mats were extremely limited, mostly because our max level guildies needed them and a lot of members aren’t able to help gather them yet. But overall we had the majority of mats needed for a bunch of guildies to make progress with their professions.

Thank you to everyone that donated gold and mats especially when we only had about a month of prep time before the event!

Huge THANK YOU to the volunteers on the AIE Guild Craft Faire Professions Teams. This event would never have been able to happen again without all of you crazy, dedicated, and wonderful guildies! The amount of time and effort you put into planning and organizing behind the scenes is greatly appreciated. And it means a lot that you offered to help out! :heart:

Since our Craft Faire “test” was successful, we are already planning to host another one sometime in the spring of 2020! We could always use more volunteers… wink wink
Raid planning is happening and we are coordinating with United Orgrimmar and other guilds within the “United Federation of Guilds”. So keep an eye on the WoW Classic Discord channel for more info. And to find out more about a fun unannounced event happening sometime in December!

There’s a lot going on so if you’re interested in playing with us log into WoW Classic and create a Horde character on the Pagle realm! To request an invite in game /join aielfo or ask in the Discord LFO channel because would love to have you with us in WoW Classic!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! And I look forward to all of our adventures in 2020!

FOR THE HORDE!

Love,
Nevermore

AIE Guild Master in WoW Classic

WoW
We started an Alliance branch of AIE on Earthen Ring-US and are gathering folks to raid one night a week on it. If you’re interested, message Syreyne in game or AIE Discord.

We’ve had an influx of new and returning guildies to retail WoW since BlizzCon and a BIG WELCOME to them! Gustytail also really enjoyed the Search for Uuna pet event and intends to do more of these. We will be seeing more of Uuna in Shadowlands, which makes sense because she’s a ghost. Guild events are a lot of fun and we all hope more people take part in 2020.

We had a really great time remembering Ralff with Ralff’s amazing race in February of this year. And it’s an annual event, so look for detail upcoming in January for 2020’s Ralff’s Amazing Race!
https://aie-guild.org/blog/2019/01/second-annual-ralffs-amazing-race/

There will be bonus rewards received from Dragon kills and by defeating the final boss in the the Wrathstone Dungeon, Scalebreak Dungeon, and any boss in the Sunspire Trial. Also resource nodes will drop double crafting mats. This event also allow players to earn 2 event tickets daily to spend at the Impresario on Indrik berries, outfit styles, and Indrik feathers.

MFN is on Friday nights at 9pm EST and we take part in activities related to the scheduled events, clearing zones, and enjoying the Mandatory Fun. Throughout 2019 we’ve had dragon hunting parties, helped people obtain pets from public dungeons, done a tour of guild members homes, and of course jumped off a few cliffs.

STO

This past Tuesday, the guild celebrated the launch of the first episode of The Mandalorian by having a bounty hunter-themed MFN. We dressed up in our best mando armor and had a beach party (of course). Afterwards, we roamed the galaxy wreaking havoc on world bosses. Discussions of the show can be had in the newly reopened Star Wars Spoilers discord channel. We also had a little birthday party for guildie Thaan, sponsored by his two sons. It was a great MFN overall.

FFXIV
Every night is a super awesome crafting night, with the new Ishgard restoration project!
Lots of AIE folks helping each other out with the new crafting systems, and the XP bonuses are HUUGE!

Abo and crew are looking for more people to run on Tuesday and Thursday raiding, no experience required.

We’d love you to be in the FC, but if you are committed elsewhere but are on the Crystal Datacenter, you are welcome to come along.

There is a Fellowship and Cross-world linkshell, as well as the #ffxiv channel in Discord.
Fridays are all request nights, but we need you to make those requests. Making the requests earlier in the week helps us all out in scheduling the events. Things such as optional dungeon unlocks, Alexander or Omega runs, Treasure Maps, Gold Saucer parties are all great ideas. We know you have other ideas that we have never thought of, so let us know so we can all get together for Friday Fun Nights.

Oh, and join us for Copied Factory runs if you are looking for that 2B glamour. We can help you through the encounters, and you will have less competition to get that cosmetic.

Plus the raid is still totally awesome.

ESO
The Undaunted Event in game was scheduled to start this week, but due to technical difficulties it has been disabled. There is currently no eta on when or if it will happen this year.

Return of The Breach! This TFO (task force operation) event is back. You have until December 3 at 10AM PT. This event is working towards unlocking another free T6 ship on top of the standard event rewards, which is a Universal console.

They have added another Fed and KDF ship, the Strike Wing Escorts. And something that is a strike wing has to have a shuttle bay to hold you wingmen.

And as always, they are always adding more content, like about a week ago, they added three more patrol systems. Kinbar, Nassordin, and Zahl are the newest patrols added.

Fleet Holdings: The fleet is doing great, but as always can use more duty officers and a few other resources.

The colony is working toward completing Tier II in all branches, including the core.
Embassy is working on the Diplomacy Tier II project.
K-13 has been moving along nicely and is almost at Tier II across the board.

Lifetime subscription sale is still going. You have until November 21st to get $100 off. This brings it down to $199.99. And if you are going to spend a decent amount of time in STO, I highly recommend it as you will get your money back just on the 500 zen a month stipend. This is not counting the veteran ships, playable Talaxian, and so much more.

Black Friday is coming and there are always sales from zen bonuses, to zen store discounts.

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. Mkallah is at @cyberwaif,and Tetsemi is at @ivorytiger. We record live with video every other Sunday at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific. You can join the chatroom and play along with us on our website at https://aie-guild.org/podcast-live-stream/ and our Discord server for chat at https://aie-guild.info/discord .

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.

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…

Send someone a special message in WoW Classic with AIE Guildie Grams!
A “Guildie Gram” is based on the candy gram fundraisers that schools organize for holidays like Valentine’s Day where someone sends a special note with candy or flowers to friends & teachers.

We love the spirit of community that everyone has shown in WoW Classic since launch. We want to continue this momentum going forward! There are a lot of reasons you could send a Guildie Gram:

* Someone went out of their way to help you with a quest you couldn’t have finished alone

* Thank someone for helping you with profession mats or creating an item you needed

* You heard someone was having a rough day and just wanted to make them smile

The Guildie Gram will include:

– Your personal message

– Savory Deviate Delight x 1 (A treat that turns you into a pirate or a ninja when you eat it!)

* Guildie Grams are able to be ordered by Horde members of AIE in WoW Classic on Pagle-US.

* They will be mailed 1-3 days after the order form is filled out and in game payment is received.

There are many reasons to spread kindness and positive messages with each other.

Think outside the box and send a Guildie Gram to some of your fellow AIE guildies today! <3

3pm Eastern (Server Time)

Tabards are encouraged but not required! All guildies are welcome 🙂

Location: TBD

We understand Classic is expensive to train talents and professions, so not everyone will have a tabard yet and that’s okay!

That being said:

If anyone *wants* to donate a tabard to be raffled off to AIE guildies that don’t have one yet, that would be awesome!

You can any tabard donations to Nevermore.

SWTOR
We have a release date for Onslaught and it is October 22. PTS is up and rocking. The community has really embraced it and is making a great contribution to testing and feedback. In Onslaught, players will be able to roll a Nautolan if they are subscribed for any amount of time between now and the release of Onslaught. If you are wondering what a Nautolan is, check out Jedi Master Kit Fisto from Clone Wars.

In the live game, September is the month of many pirates! The Pirate Incursion event will be running twice this month on Dantooine.

Guild MFNs are on Tuesdays at 9PM eastern and we alternate between Imperial and Republic sides, so everyone can come and play. September’s MEGA on the 27th is going to resurrect an OG mission to acquire the fabled Magenta Lightsaber Crystal. This is a shortish mission with some travel in between and we will be hanging out in discord and doing some Star Wars trivia as well. And who knows what else!

Also, New York Cantina is coming up fast on Oct 4th. A number of AIE people will be there, so if you fancy a night of drinks, AIEers, and possibly a little bit of game talk, you’re invited! For more info and how to connect up, jump into discord and ask.

FFXIV
The FFXIV raid team took down Titania Extreme, the first piece of “raid-level” end game content in the expansion Shadowbringers. This is an 8 player raid, which can be done after the MSQ for Shadowbringers has been completed.

Currently, AIE is running gear up nights Tuesdays at 9:30pm Eastern and progression nights at 9:30pm eastern.

No experience is necessary! If you wish to join us with more challenging content, drop us a line in the AIE Discord in the #ffxiv channel.

I’d like to add that we are interested in running level 80 map nights. To run maps nights, the first step is to… get maps. To get them organically, you need to be a level 80 gatherer, that’s miner, botanist, or fisher. They are an extra item on your gathers, and you can only get one map a day. Furthermore, you can have one map activated, one in your main bags, one map in your chocobo saddle bags, and one in each retainer.

Running maps can get you super rewards and fabulous prizes, especially when you spawn the “bonus zone”.

So, we’d love to help get maps up for map nights. It’s a super fun activity, pretty casual time, and a great time to be had by all.

ESO
The Imperial City Celebration event is happening now and the DLC for the Imperial City is now free in the Crown store for anyone who doesn’t own it or have ESO Plus. This is a PvP focused area with some PvE content and two PvE dungeons – White Gold Tower (ugh) and Imperial City Prison. During the event drops of Tel Var Stones, Key Fragments, and materials will be doubled and the chance of getting a Stonefire Scamp pet or the Soul-Shriven skin will be double as well. Also, as usual, double drops from all bosses within the Imperial City and the dungeons.
You can earn 2 event tickets per day (per account), by defeating the final boss in one of the dungeons, or slaying a patrolling monster or mini-boss on the streets of Imperial City or within the sewers.

And MFN is still going strong on Friday Nights at 9pm est.

EVE
EVE Officers are playing Wow Classic, @Huck is holding down the ship.

LOTRO
SNL still going strong. September 21 raid on Lotro. All you need is the client downloaded. The game is free to play. All are welcome. If you have questions contact either Marcus or Maellung, or post your question in #lotro channel on discord.

GW2
MFN Monday nights and all who want to learn to do fractals on Friday night at 9 eastern starting on September 20th. Fractals are a mini dungeon style with unique mechanics and design

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

GAME NEWS
Star Trek Online Game News
– Story Update coming September 10th, Awakening.
– This looks to be a continuation of Age of Discovery, but more in the current timeline(2410). Anthony Rap will reprise his role of Lt. Commander Stamets for this part of the story.
– New Task Force Operation(TFO)(A type of Dungeon or Flashpoint). Mycelial Realm. It’s a ground based TFO, bringing you into the Mycelial Network against a Klingon faction that is not aligned with the Empire.
– Five New Patrols(single player content)
– A New One Time Event that goes with the launch of Awakening. By running the new content daily(max 60 Progress Points a daily) you earn Progress towards getting a T6 Elachi Frigate.
– A little Quality of Life stuff. Starfleet and Klingon races that were not of Romulan origin can now captain Romulan Warbirds

Fleet projects, as normal, could use some duty officers.
MFN tonight will start after the podcast.
