This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-282 continue our walk through Dread Master lore and cover the story elements of EV, KP, EC, and TFB.

Imperium Ludi
Just a reminder, we’re still going strong with #Anthem and would love to see more people active in it. If you are playing, make sure the check out the #Anthem channel in AIE Discord and ping Durus to add your Origin ID to the list of people playing so you can get the Alliance bonuses.

Mandatory Fun Nights
Where the fun is mandatory but the attendance is not.
A couple of games have moved days so make sure you double check when each game is running MFN.

Monday – GW2 9:30 pm Eastern
Tuesday – SWTOR 9 pm Eastern
Wednesday – FFXIV 10 pm Eastern
Friday – ESO 9 pm Eastern

Saturday – Noob Raid (WoW) 11 pm Eastern
Sunday – STO 8:30 pm Eastern

WoW
A bit of a brag about Noob Raid. We are now 8/8 on Uldir Normal. Our first time ever seeing Ghuun and we killed him on the 1st pull (which was an accidental pull). We then followed that up by going 3/9 in BD’A Normal.

1. This month’s Community Event: Trial of Style – March 20-24
2. Next month’s Community Event: “April” Fools Rush In – Gusty – Whole month of April

ESO
The Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood celebration event started on March 7th and rungs until Monday March 18th 10am est. 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.

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

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.

Star Wars Celebration
Chicago, April 11-15
SWTOR Cantina on April 13th (don’t need SWC tickets to attend)
AIE Meetup on the 12th at the Marriott Residence Downtown

WoW
Big shout out to the people at Blizzard doing the hard work to make this game right now and to all the folks that got laid off after the Tuesday earnings call. The gaming industry as a whole seems to be very much in flux right now and job stability isn’t really there for a lot of hard working folks putting everything they can into making the games we love.

Mini-Raid Wrap-up:
In the race for guild first heroic:
Get your Crit Together is in the lead with a 6 of 9 in Heroic BoD, and at 7/9 in Normal.
Kiddie Aggro is currently at 4/9, and has finished Normal 9/9.
Better Late than Never is 3/9, but did get to 9/9 in Normal first.
Pepper Jack Fan Club is at 2/9 in Heroic, and 8/9 Normal.
Horseshoes & Hand grenades is at 1/9, with 6/9 in Normal.

– 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.

Welcome to episode #314 of the the podcast celebrating you, the Alea Iacta Est gaming community, the die has been podcast. This is Host Mkallah To my left is Mewkow - (catch phrase here). And to my right well, no one- Tet has the flu and does not have enough of a voice to talk on the show this evening. This week we are joined by special guests Dankinia who is here to talk to us about AIE in ESO Welcome!

Tetsemi’s week (since he has no voice) - Got in FFXIV, playing an archer, at level 24 with various professions as well, very fun so far, good story and entertaining combat.

Bought Anthem and playing the heck out of it while recovering from the flu (would not recommend, the flu. Anthem is great). Level 14 playing the Colossus (tank mech, go figure) and did my first Stronghold. Was super fun and helped me figure out what all my key bindings actually do.

Ok, we’ll be digging into ESO shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news...

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.

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.

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.

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
https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/shadowbringers/
Expect new classes and a new race. If you have been keeping up to date on the most recent raid content, you might have a good idea of what the new race is.

New Patch content: 4.5 A Requiem for Heroes
* New story for the Main Scenario Questline
* Now play Mahjong in the Gold Saucer against AI or other players
* New emotes, and hairstyles
* Blue Mage job introduced this Tuesday, 15 Jan 2019

* New trial: Wreath of Snakes
* Weekly reward limit for Alphascape has been removed
* New Alliance dungeon: Orbonne Monastery
* New PvP Season 12 of The Feast

Letter from the Producer Live XLIX (49) from the Paris Fan Festival
February 3, 2019 at 1AM PST
It’ll be broadcast on https://www.twitch.tv/finalfantasyxiv

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.

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.]]>

NOMADS
Fallout 76 – Launch was fairly smooth, but as this is a Bethesda game, bugs are as plentiful as attacking ghouls. Servers or ‘worlds’ would occasionally have issues and crash, but there was always a new one waiting to move on to. PvP is a non-issue if you wish to avoid it, almost similar to warmode in WoW where if you don’t retaliate or are set in pacifist mode, it is not worth an attacker’s time to try to kill you. And if they are persistent, you can easily switch worlds and never see them again. If someone manages to kill a pacifist player, they become a wanted target for the entire server/world, showing up on the map at all times, and the bounty being paid from their own caps.
We have several AIE members running amok in the game, and you can chat and find out more in the nomad channel in the AIE discord.

Destiny 2 – The free copy of Year One is no longer available, but the refer-a-friend is still ongoing. If you did pick up a free copy of Year One, and are thinking of purchasing the Year Two Forsaken expansion, see about having a guildie invite you so that you can both get some fun bonus goodies for the effort. This includes an experience bonus for both of you if you are below the level cap for Forsaken, which is level 50. It also opens open a number of exclusive quests to complete together to get an exotic sniper rifle, an exclusive ship, and a friendship emblem. Those that refer multiple friends will be able to earn an exclusive sparrow. If you recently bought Forsaken, and it was less than 7 days ago, you can still be ‘referred’ by another player to activate the bonuses.

WoW
Just a reminder, Noob Raid will be on holiday break beginning December 15 and resuming on January 5th.

So, AIE in WOW in Review!

1. 112 gnomes were killed during COOP this year, however we still have time to add to those numbers with our annual Winterveil COOP coming up in December.
2. 4,235 battle potions were used on heroic Argus, along with 10,678 warlock cookies. (Don’t ask what’s in the cookies.)
3. An average of 7.7 players ask when noob raid invites go out between 9 and 11pm every Saturday night.
4. 141 left sharks were mailed to Syreyne, bringing the current total to 426. Obviously she needs more.
5. 682 pots of coffee were brewed in the guild kitchen. The Irish cream was optional.
6. Ralff’s Amazing Race was so amazing that the amazing officers want to do this amazing event every year. Isn’t that amazing!?
7. Summer of Love was great! Except for the Forsaken Laser Tag. All the Forsaken competitors were disqualified, since the laser beams went right through them.

What Arrives with Patch 8.1 (starting 12/11, but susceptible to time gating)

Continuation of the War Campaign
Heritage Armor for Blood Elves and Dwarves
Paragon Reputation Rewards
Saurfang and Tyrande Questlines
New Island Expeditions and Vendor
Incursions
Account-wide Reputation Credit and Transmogs
Account-wide Flight Paths
New Darkshore Warfront and Darkshore Overworld Revamp (+ New Warfront Vendor)

SWTOR
SWTOR Year End Wrap up for the AIE podcast

2018 started off with the last of 2017’s Snowballs on Nar Shaddaa, followed closely by Zen reminding people that they can get mats from the Guild Cargo Hold to do their Conquest crafting.

2018 also saw 3 new operations bosses in various difficulty modes:
• Scyva, Mother of Sorrows
• Nahut, the Hated Son
• Izax, the Destoyer of pretty much everything and everyone

The Guild came together to get all the operations teams a chance to down Izax.

We got a new Flashpoint, a new pvp map, a Conquest revamp, and the Rishi Stronghold.

We got a new podcast – Working Class Nerds – hosted by Marcus and Nick.

We had a great year for guild growth and as a result we moved our MFN and Conquest schedule from 2 week Imp/1 week Pub to 1 and 1.

We got 4 new officers – Dent, Marcus, Zen and BC!
• Marcus ran his first MEGA in June and it has already become a monthly tradition. (Monthly Epic Guild Activity)
• Marcus also instigated an operations night with all the current SWTOR podcasters that was streamed by multiple content creators. It was called SWTOR Unite.
• BC created and published and maintained his Conquest Calculator which helps guildies (and the rest of the SWTOR community) plan out their Conquest activities.
• Dent started Flashpoint Fridays, which is a casual pop up event for running small group content.
• Zen continues to keep the mats the flowing and shepherd us to Conquest success week in/week out.

We had fun times on the public test servers maxing out our characters and their gear, and killing bosses.

We conquered Balmorra!

Astromech EPC-268 is floating out in space broadcasting the 268th edition of the SWTOR Escape Podcast with Max and Sema.

But 2018 is not over yet! We will finish the year with update 5.10 which will include new story, a new daily area, a new guild progression system, private PVP and GSF instances for guilds, a new armor tier, and more

STO
Big things have happened this year for the fleet. Fleet leadership switched over from Captain Hunter to Captain Grebog.

The fleet made some big strides this year on the fleet holdings. The starbase was upgraded to Tier 4 and the Starbase Military also upgraded to tier 4. This has unlocked a large number of fleet ships.

The fleet Research lab was fully completed unlocking more trait slots, an R&D project slots on top of some gear.

The fleet spire is over halfway done in upgrading fully. Which will unlock some more awesome gear for the fleet.

As for STO, we received the Victory is Life expansion. Bringing back the Dominion and allowing us to create Jem’hadar captains and of course more story.

And of course the latest story is based on the Discovery TV series in the Age of Discovery. Ships updated in Tier 6 variants from the show and some really interesting episodes were added.

Also, as Grebog’s schedule has changed around again, I will be looking to find a time for people that will allow a fun night for the fleet to come together, chat, blow up some enemy ships and have some fun. So, Set Phasers to Fun, should be coming back soon.

FFXIV
Shadowbreakers has been announced as your next expansion for FFXIV!
We’re likely going to the Garlean Empire (not confirmed, but looking really likely)!

Warrior of Light might be becoming the Warrior of Darkness. But isn’t there already a Warrior of Darkness?

As seen in the video of the fan fest, we will have this in our hands, barring any delays, summer of 2019.
New Level Cap, of course.
Multiple new classes are likely.
Why was Thancred in the trailer sporting a gunblade? Right now, the closest class we have is a Mechanist, and they just use standard handguns, shotguns, and other ballistic weapons. Would this be a clue to one of the new classes?

New end game for crafters and gatherers! The rebuild of Ishgard has begun. Hinted at the idea of housing in Ishgard may be available. Farming may also be possible, but not as one of the new classes.

New Game+
Trusts. Similar but not a copy of the FFXI system.
Summon popular NPCs to help you in your adventuring, with their own class or role.
They do not level up on their own, they are based on your current level.
World Visiting. Visit other servers inside your datacenter.
World reshuffling. Adding more servers and regrouping of the servers.

End of 32-bit windows version of the game, 64-bit only at that point.
New race! The tease is a Bugs Bunny shirt. We are speculating that it is the Viera from FF Tactics, but will be introduced in patch 4.5)

Blue Mage, as announced by the CEO of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, sporting a blue mask, a blue cape, and a staff with a blue gemstone at the top.
Learns abilities from monsters to use during combat.
How many actions? Was teased at “a lot”. Will be able to equip 24 at once.
Not connected to other classes, much like machinist, red mage, DK.
Limited class, meaning not for end game. Limited to level 50 at release and will have its cap raised in patches over time.
Will be available in patch 4.5, January 2019. Part 2 of patch 4.5, wrapping up the Stormblood storyline will be in late March.

Word Visiting details:
New Data Centers being added, some servers being shuffled around.

Goblin, AIE’s Home World, will be relocated to the new Crystal Data Center. Free Transfers will be available for characters affected by this move. No plans for AIE to move at this time.

Shadowbringers Trailer.

ESO
This year, we saw a resurgence of interest in the game, as the improvements both in quality of life and game content attracted players back. Kini was named director, and has been leading and encouraging a number of well attended Mandatory Fun Nights ever since.
There has been a number of DLCs launched as well, including the Summerset Isles expansion, some werewolf fun, and even well needed attention for the Argonians in Murkmire.

Upcoming events – there are two in-game events still scheduled for this year. The Undented Celebration Event (11/29 – 12/05) which will reward Event Tickets once per day when your group kills the final boss of a dungeon. The New Life Festival (12/13 – 01/02) will award one Event Ticket the first time you complete a festival quest each day. These Event Tickets are used to buy the four Indrik Feathers needed for the new Indrik mount.

EVE
What a bunch of lousy Murder Hobos™

EvE is going through another donut domination phase and the crises (plural) that always follow. So prepare your buckets to harvest rivers of tears.
Good for the game, even with Pearl Abyss buying CCP and investing in other CCP games and pet projects.

Will see how EvE evolves or morphs to survive a few more years

POS(Player Owned Structures) are finally retired now, after almost 11 years.
New Cyno and JB(Jump Bridges) were deployed

GW2
It is always hard to tell because arenanet generally plays these sort of things close to their vest but it looks like Guild wars 2 had a really good year this year. The failure of Bless Online and some streamers deciding GW2 was a decent alternative really raised the profile. There are still black friday sales and giveaways in the hematite.

In game, the annual Winters Day holiday is coming up soon, in line with Arenanet new policy of not making events and achievements one-offs. If you are short on karma, the Winters Day orphans karma event should be able to help.

In the guild, we have reached level 23 and stalled out a bit. Hopefully we can regain progress in the new year and keep expanding the Guild hall. Monday Fun Nights are still generally scheduled, but we’ll skip around Christmas and New Year’s.

LOTRO
The Legendary Server opening is something the AIE team is jumping on. It’s the WoW Classic of LotRO. We have a guild there and a handful of people kicking off new old-school characters.

The guild name is Alea Iacta Est as DM +Adahrel+ granted us a rename from A I E.

GAME NEWS
Any other wrap up, year end discussion, or personal highlights for the show or in gaming.

From time to time AIE evaluates the roles and jobs of the officer group that oversees all our game divisions and does the back end work. In doing that recently we identified the need for a bit more help in a couple areas. In particular, SWTOR 5.10 is going to take what we’ve been doing in that division with the guild “conquest” system and crank it up to 11 (and then to level 65+). Guild leveling, conquest changes and guild perks are going to require additional focus and officer roles. As a result, two new officers have been added! They will continue to be primarily SWTOR focused but we will be calling on them for help and guidance across the community as needed as well.

BCavanagh – Bcav or BC has taken on the role of Conquest strategizer for the guild for many months with his contributions in this area extending out into the greater SWTOR gaming community as well.

Zen – Zen has been with us for a few years now and true to his chosen gamer tag, he’s cool and level headed without fail. He is one of the top “helpers” in the guild, always ready to assist with any ask and goes out of his way constantly to make himself available.

Fallout 76 – There may also be a few guildies diving into Fallout 76 starting on November 14th. The B.E.T.A. seemed to go well enough, and I am at least is looking forward to exploring the radiated wilds of West Virginia.

WoW
Noob Raid news – We decided to be brave and left behind the safety of LFR to venture into Uldir normal last night We managed 3/8 bosses before Vectis ended our rampage. A ton of fun was had and we are looking forward to trying again next week.

Kardinal, tell us your first hand experience with the chaos that is NOOB raid! (Can throw to Kardinal if you want; I was there. 🙂 I can make a story of it. )
Noob raid’s been very popular, full/almost full every week.
Been doing LFR, been successful, but in spirit of learning, wanted to deepen people’s knowledge
1shot Taloc, adjusted and 2shot Mother, laughed through trash, 1shot Fetid, and….we learned a lot on Vectis. Got the mechanics, need the practice.
Failure is good. Teaches us that it’s okay and fun to fail.
“Progression is wiping”
Most importantly, we laughed and had fun and there was no tension.

December community events: COOP for Winter Veil, no date yet;

Time After Timewalking event on Friday Dec 7th at 9pm Eastern/Server. LK Ulduar Timewalking raid. Details will be posted soon to the blog.

November Officer Play Date: Nov 30th at 10:30 pm Eastern we are having an Overwatch night. Everyone is invited. Come get to know your fellow officers outside of WoW. Let’s see how many custom games and groups we can get going.

Raid Bank Pilot Program: This program is doing really well, and we are getting a lot of positive feedback. If you are interested in applying for a raid team guild bank tab, please email us.

(Kardinal’s in BLTN, can talk about our experience and why we love it. Much more convenient. Don’t have to know who to send to. Don’t need to know what’s needed. Just throw whatever we think is useful in the guild bank. Anyone who needs, takes. Just need to trust your teammates, which we all do. Because we’re AIE.)

If you are the leader of a raid team that might be interested in this program once it is approved, or have questions or feedback about such a program, please email us with details such as:

Raid Team name
Raid Leader(s) name
Preferred AIE co-guild

ESO
There is a free trial of the ESO plus service that starts Thursday 11/15 and runs until Wednesday 11/21. The trail will allow free access to all of the DLC packs, the craft bag, costume dyes, and a 10% increase in experience and gold earnings. It’s a great way to check out some of the benefits of a paid subscription.
Also on 11/15 the Clockwork City Celebration event begins and runs until 11/21. During this timeframe double mats will be harvested from crafting nodes, there will be double reward boxes for completing daily quests, and the drops from all boss fights will be double as well. During this event you can earn two event tickets from the 1st daily quest to help you purchase the Indrik Feathers needed for the new Indrik Mount.
Mandatory Fun on Friday 11/16 at 9pm est will focus on the Clockwork City zone due to the celebration event.

STO
If you haven’t created an Age of Discovery Captain, It is highly recommended You start out in the timeline of the Discovery show. The story they put in for it is pretty good. There is even a references to some other cadets with names you should recognize.

Also Black Friday sales. They always have some great deals on in the c store, from bonus zen if you purchase it, to discounted ships, special packs, lots of stuff.
Currently the Phoenix prize packs are back, but you only have until tomorrow 10am PST to claim a free one or buy them with dilithium.

There is a 20% of sale on all lobi store items until tomorrow 10am PST as well.
Also until December 6th, the lifetime subscription is $100 off, so currently only $199. If you have been debating it, or waiting on a sale, now is your time.
Tis the season for sales.

SWTOR
1) 5.10 dropping on Dec 11. It’s a big update with lots of guild stuff in it. We are really looking forward to it.
2) November MEGA coming on Nov 30th. We promise no one will die. Honest!
3) December MEGA is also a go. Beware – there might be snowballs involved. More details as we get closer.

Last night. We had SWTOR Unite. Which was….. All of the SWTOR podcasters united for a night and we took on the Gods from the Machine operation. AIE was well represented by Max, Sema, Marcus, and a last minute fill in was Corley. We went for about 4 hours and had a blast. In the end. Izax was still standing. But what a great night.

FFXIV
Though is is more news for FF15 than FF14, on December 12, those that own a copy of FF15 will be able to participate in a fun side quest, as FF14 invades Eos. The Miqo’te adventurer, which is curiously in starter gear, has come to chase down the primal Garuda. Hopefully, Noctis will return the favor and visit us in Eorzea.

EVE
#Making EVE Great Again

Nothing much, except more betrayals within alliances (so you end up with fights that are free for all, or where your ally helps your enemy). Even with CCP being bought out, the players are the most important resource in EvE, and Tears Do Flow Them Rivers!

Also WAR! WAR! WAR!

Onslaught Winter update is coming Nov. 13th

We just maybe, maybe making a new home for ourselves by stomping on some poor unsuspecting alliance’s neck. Oopsies!

What does that mean for AIEU? Why our specialty of course! Moving

LOTRO
The Legendary Server opening is something the AIE team is jumping on. You can describe it as WoW Classic of LotRO. We have a guild there and a handful of people kicking off new old-school characters.
https://www.lotro.com/en/legendary

Only VIPs / VIP Lifer can access them, and we’re effectively starting over all at once. I suspect Helegrod, the first raid back in the day, will be the ultimate goal after hitting level 40.
Currently “A I E” is on Anor, but we could move to Ithil if warranted due to login queues. SSG is offering free transfers.

GAME NEWS
Mew, Tet, Lanctharus, and Kardinal – tell us about your Blizzcon experience and your takeaways!

The themes of our talk:

1) the ability to talk to nearly anyone and know you have common interests.

2) the availability and eagerness of developers to talk to anyone and everyone who approached them.

Tetsemi – Overall thoughts are positive, lots of announcements, both expected and unexpected. Loved listening to the Before The Con panels, as well as all the panels at Blizzcon. The WoW panels (especially the Q&A) and the Warcraft III Reforged panels were amazing. The Costume/Talent contest was very well done, definitely bring back Darren DePaul for that, and the Warcraft Horde vs. Alliance voice actor panel was worth it with Laura Bailey singing Daughter of the Sea live.

Content thoughts –
WoW had much more information than I thought and I’m already scrambling to level up characters and finish achievements so I can keep up when it’s release.
Warcraft III Reforged was an instant buy for me as I can’t wait to play it again properly on new graphics.
Hearthstone – I like that they’re doing a troll expansion tieing into the current WoW expansions, it looks fun, I’ll probably dabble in it.
Heroes of the Storm – I love the story behind the new character they introduced and hopefully the lore behind the Nexus will be interesting. I find it interesting that they’re trying to flesh out the story behind it.
Overwatch – I’d pay money for the character of Ashe, but thankfully all the characters are included in the game. Loved the cinematic, and I really like that they stretched their programming and story wings a bit and made B.O.B. (Do something!) her ultimate. Can’t wait for more story on the Deadlock gang.
Diablo – Just the announcement peaked my interest in DIII again and I’m playing a seasonal Necromancer. All I’m going to say, with apologies, is that was the wrong venue to announce a Mobile game and the decision to make that the final announcement with the first Q&A panel afterword just didn’t work for me. I feel sorry for the CM team and dev team dealing with the fallout from the announcement. I’m really excited to try the game out and see how it plays and I love that they’re exploring the time between D2 and D3 in the game. More lore is always good.

Mewkow
Halloween with Mickey
Con before the storm/World of Podcasts – Great podcast panels. Lots of elbow rubbing afterwards. Good talks with CTR folks.
Blizzcon – Security lines were unexpected. Locked down food trucks. Lindsey concert was great except for the jerks.
Sheraton meetup with Grimm, Mezotea, Senior Geek.
Dizcon –

Lanctharus

Lanc’s Plain Jane experience getting to Anaheim

Kardinal
I had an amazing time meeting everyone from Devs to AIE to new people. Enjoyed the planned content, but even without it, it’s a wonderful and unique experience.
Highlight of sessions: “When is the Horde going to get its real warchief back???”
Themes:
Developers are everywhere, available, and eager to talk to you.
Randomly – QA Mgr for Hearthstone. Tech people after the “Inside Blizzard” panel. Tech people love to talk because fewer people tend to appraoch them. New Executive Producer (head) of warcraft, John Haight. Global director of CS. Wyatt Cheng spent 3 hours in the Marriott Lobby.
Scheduled- Reached out to two Blizz devs via Twitter and made times to talk to them. Doing that gave us time to get really in depth. 2 hours each.
You can talk to anyone there and know that they’re interested in the same things you are. Impromptu fun conversations include:
Ex1 – Austrians
Ex2 – Cosplayer
Ex3 – Group of alliance players at Con before the Storm
Also: Surprisingly easy to get tickets at the last minute.

“The other day, John Staats released his WoW diary. The one he wrote when he was working on Vanilla. I was reading it last night. This is very relevant to the whole conversation, I think:

“In the spirit of education, the first thing I would like to impress upon you is one of the most surprising lessons I learned: Public speculation is always wrong. Always. Blizzard operated under a blanket of scrutiny, and only after I was in the meetings could I appreciate how inaccurate public analysis was. Unless you’re in the room, you have no idea what’s going on. Unless someone knows firsthand the reasons why a company makes decisions, popular conjecture is completely off. For a company as secretive as Blizzard, the tinfoil-hat theorizing about why we did anything was severe, cynical, and reactionary. It struck me how people universally assumed corporate decisions were thoughtless or callous—like if a feature was dropped, it was done so without regard for the feelings of the fan base. When decisions were made for financial grounds, people assumed it was because developers lacked imagination. Whenever technical or gameplay decisions were made, it was assumed the company was penny-pinching. I’m not even referring to the trolls dredging the game forums for flame wars; I’m talking about the intelligent, well-substantiated, and reasonable arguments about why Blizzard did this or why Blizzard did that. But…all of it was wrong and certainly not because the fan base was stupid. People were wrong because they considered only variables that were public knowledge—which were only a fraction of the pertinent factors.”

Destiny 2 - Festival of the Lost is underway. Enjoy Destiny’s take on the season by donning masks, and going on a bit of a spooky hunt with Amanda Holliday leading the way as you explore the Haunted Forest. The Tower is decorated in honor of those lost, and the Eververse loot season has been flavored to match. The Clan is currently at level 3 after our current efforts, but still has a few levels to go if we want to get maxed out at level 6. Hawthorne is who you want to talk to if you wish to contribute to the clan leveling, and definitely if you are planning on running content with fellow clan members.

This event will also offer a chance to acquire Event Tickets to redeem for an Indrik Feather. Once you’ve collected all four of the unique Indrik Feathers over the course of the rest of the year, you’ll be able to get the new Indrik mount.(edited)
During MFN this coming Friday, we will take advantage of the Festival and use the cauldron to turn ourselves in to undead and roam Tamriel killing bosses, running delves, clearing dungeons, and basically just wreaking havoc on the Dremora to collect as many of the event items as we can.

GAME NEWS
Gaming with Guildies
Zod: We want to formally invite the AIE Podcast hosts to our show for some live gaming action and shenanigans. Also, if anyone is interested in being on the show, please let Syreyne or myself know. You can ping us on Discord or on Twitter. You don’t have to be an officer, or even in WoW. We want to get to know you…our community.
Sy: We’ve done SWTOR, EVE, and Overwatch too. Or if you play one of our other game divisions, that’s cool too! We’re always up for trying new things! Or, if you have a suggestion of who to invite to the show, let us know that too!
.
Running of the Beef 15: Zandalar Forever
Zod: This time around is the Running of the Beef #15, code name “Zandalar Forever”. Over the years, we have done everything from the original tauren to Gerp and Henry to Lanc and Bronies to our special Ralff edition. This time, we are doing trolls in honor of the newest WoW expansion, Battle for Azeroth, and Princess Talanji. The event is on Sunday, October 21st.

Sy: We know many of you are full up on Earthen Ring, so we are running on the Ravenholdt US server. Because we had sharding aka phasing issues last time, we are asking everyone to level their troll to 10 in advance so we can group up as a raid. With full heirlooms, this only takes about an hour to do. So you have one week to create and level those trolls!

Zod: We are starting with the meetup and guild invites at 1pm Eastern. The guild name for this Running of the Beef is “Bwonsamdi Forever”. We do have a guild crest, so if you are inclined to buy a guild tabard in Orgrimmar, go for it. But it will cost 1 gold from the vendor. Unfortunately, with the change that made tabards Bind on Pickup, we can no longer pre-purchase them to hand out anymore. If you really really want the tabard, the easiest way is to get the gold for it is to create a DK and do some of the starting area quests.

Sy: Make sure that after you hit level 10, you hearth back to the very first zone-in starting area, aka the beach. We are going to start there. That’s also where we will do the guild and raid invites. At 2pm Eastern, we are going to roll out. We have all kinds of fun and cool things to do, so have your S.E.L.F.I.E. cameras hot-keyed and your twitter linked up to battlenet. We’re going to use #aieguild and #RotB15 to share our “photos” with the whole community.

Zod: In the past, we’ve had bodyguards to help us through higher level zones. This time around, we are doing things a bit differently, so we won’t need the guards to follow us. Don’t worry! I’m pretty sure some of you will still die. It is tradition after all.

Sy: If you are interested in seeing the formal invitation for Running of the Beef, or the full list of previous themes, check out our blog post on the AIE website! https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/09/running-of-the-beef-zandalar-forever/

Upcoming Events
Zod: The WoW guild has been setting up once-a-month guild wide events. October is obviously our Running of the Beef. But we taking a break for November due to this little thing called Blizzcon and of course, the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving. We have some great ideas for events coming up, including hitting up some older expansion raids.

Sy: To help with all these new events, we’ve started a new Events Committee to help out. If you have ideas for new events that we can do, whether in WoW or in other gaming divisions, please let the officers know. You can always find us in Discord in the #lfo chat channel, or you can email us at officers@aie-guild.org.

Zod: We’ve had some great fun over the last few months with the Hide and Forsaken, Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, Trial of Style, and Pirate’s Day Warmode (and Sy’s pirate themed sad jokes!). We want to keep the fun and momentum going!

New to raiding, feel like you need to get your feet wet? Or, just want to raid in a fun and friendly environment? Well, Noob raid starts up again October 6th! The only requirments are that you are at max level, want to have fun, and are willing to die over and over again! Oh, and pick on Kini as she floor tanks. If you are interested, talk to Dankinia for details. You can find her in game, on discord, or even twitter – just make sure you use the hashtag #whereskini!

Reminder to use AIE LFO Community to look for officers in game.

Reminder to use raid recruitment channel in discord to find raid teams, now that more people are gearing up 120.

ESO
MFN is still on Friday’s at 9pm Eastern.

The Summerset event to unlock a pet, mount, and house has ended. AIE did it’s part to get the achievement completed. The ESO community hit the goal and we should be receiving an awesome house around October 10th. And they will have plenty of items created for it for people to spend their money on.

On October 8th they will be releasing 4 Summerset/High Elves style furniture packs in the Crown Store for purchase if people want to buy them to start furnishing the Grand Psijic Villa we unlocked. The sets available will be for a parlor, kitchen/dining room, bedroom, and bathroom.

STO
33% of Lifetime sub sale going on now until 10/1 10 am PT (yes tomorrow)

20% off services sale going on now until also 10/1 10 am PT

It is also Bonus XP weekend. Great time to level mains or alts.

Phoenix Prize pack also going on right now, but this goes until 10/5 10am PT. Get a free phoenix prize pack at Drozana Station each day. And you can buy more from the dilithium store. A great way to stock up on gear upgrade tokens that cost no dilithium on use. And technically the cost of the boxes from the dilithium store for the boxes converted over to these upgrade tokens ends up saving you dilithium compared to regular upgrade tokens that use dilithium in the upgrade process. (Yes, Grebog put it into a spreadsheet to check.)

The fleet can always use more personnel and resources for the fleet holdings. We are still making decent progress on the various holdings and every little bit helps.

The Spire is closing in on Tier 2 of research wing, which will unlock one of the better tactical consoles in game for everyone. The operations wing is also closing on on getting its big Tier 2 project unlocked as well. And then once we complete the Tier 2 research, we will also be able to work on the overall spire’s tier 2 project, which will unlock the fleet versions of the 1000 day veteran ships.

SWTOR
This week was Republic side for conquest. We hit the large goal yesterday.

For MFN, we had a prep team start Scum and Villainy an hour before so that as a 16-person team, we could finish it. The operation has 7 bosses. The prep team got the first 5 down. Special thanks for the idea goes out to Zen.

Next week will be the Imperial side for conquest.

Patch 5.9.3 is dropping this week with a new Huttball map and the start of a week of double XP and CXP.

Thank you and welcome all new members to the guild. We have had a ton join in the last month. Just want to say we’re happy to have them!

Keep an eye on the #swtor channel in AIE DIscord for details regarding the next MEGA event which is happening towards the end of October.

And with that, let’s chat about what we have been doing in and out of game!

GAME NEWS
Mewkow- Moving, lots and lots of unpacking and Destiny 2/WoW when I can

Mkallah- Big fight thursday game, Ravenloft planning…… D&D Friday- learn about the battle between Artraxis and Alistar Bronzebeard- learn about the Shadowfel, find shadow dragon scale that had we taken would have put us in large amounts of danger had we made it into a shield
Mage- no game last session, but tell story about Mills playing the Prince

Tetsemi-
WoW
1) Got exalted with all Horde BfA reputations, still working on 2 Alliance ones to Revered.
2) Horde Raid team got the first three bosses down in Uldir on Normal Mode
3) Completed the Jaina storyline on the Alliance side, including the Siege of Boralus Mythic (15 wipes on the final boss)

Team Positive moment – See # 3 above. Three DPS queued up for Siege, we got a wonderful priest healer who was fighting their addons for dispelling and went through two tanks (I play DPS on the Alliance side) before finally getting the final fight down correctly. The three DPS and the healer were steady, kept discussing what we were doing wrong, without blame, and got ourselves sorted and finally got it! No spoilers, but the final cinematic is definitely a wow moment. Very nice to put a cap on that story line.

Dear Blizzard, please add in a Ferry Master whistle!

Mobile
Lots of Pokemon Go! Got all but one regional (still looking for a Lapris)

Starting playing a new mobile game – Dragalia Lost (think Final Fantasy + Blizzard Game on Mobile)

For Azeroth!
