New World
New World has launched as of a week ago, with much more success than anticipated, causing Amazon Studio to spawn tens of new servers a day to provide enough for all the players that wanted to join and were stuck in queues.

The initial rush is passed, queues have totally disappeared, and AIE is established on Pyrallis (North America, East) under the Syndicate banner. We currently have 87 members, with around 20 online each evening. We’re already talking about MFN and adding sub-guilds.
So lots of fun to have in a gorgeous game (hard to believe it is their first MMO, especially with so little issues or bugs, on their own engine): deep crafting, PvPvE, gigantic map (for a max of 2250 online concurrently) and an incredible attention to details (even animals have real animation, sounds and live their lives).

I do hope Amazon Studio will license their engine and content, for many great games to spawn from that pearl.

WoW
See Game Notes

SWTOR
During MFN this past week, BC took us to Dantooine to get some rather arcane achievements. Everyone there got the achievements, even though it involved some patient waiting while items respawned. During the down time, BC either was on his way to the next clicky, or he posed some really difficult trivia questions provided by Maellung, our resident Trivia Taskmaster. A few people got killed multiple times by a parrot. For science.

Double xp started this week and will be going for three weeks. The Feast of Prosperity is on too. This event only comes around once a year, so now is the time to build up some currency to buy the holiday items, like decos, pets, mounts, and cosmetic armor. The new expansion is coming by the end of the year, so this is the perfect time to level up those last few alts.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
• The last two weeks we have been focused on doing the daily world boss and delve quests in the Blackwood zone due to an in game event.
• A four person dungeon team has formed. AC/DC runs on Monday nights and is working their way through clearing all of the instanced dungeons on normal and veteran.
• Being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
• MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

Game or press release news:
• During the current Bounties of Blackwood event players unlocked a reward bundle. Don’t forget to claim the goodies from the in-game crown store.
• The players have completed 85% of the bonus challenge for the Bounties of Blackwood event. For every 25% complete between now and October 12 they will extend the Explorers celebrate event for two days. It’s a bonus mini event that will encompass every zone in Tamriel so keep doing those world boss dailies.
• The Deadlands prologue quest is now live and the quest starter can be obtained for free from the in-game crown store. It leads directly into the upcoming Deadlands DLC storyline.

FFXIV
Map night continues every Saturday at 9:30 pm eastern. We’re currently starting at different people’s houses or apartments every week. Check the FFXIV channel pins for a link to the form to sign up.

Zoot is running a mount farm on Friday evening running extreme primals from previous expansions. Even if you don’t have a ton of experience in the game, you’re welcome to come! Only requirement is you be at level 50, 60 or 70.

Let Durus, Abovan or Kelseer know if you have any questions or are interested in getting into the game! We’d love to have you.

STO
New 32 century ship added to the infinity lockbox: The Kirk Class Temporal Battlecruiser

25% off keys, until tomorrow (Monday)

New event starts on the 13th: Halloween Themed. Explore a haunted castle to rescue extragalactic aliens from the Devidians.

Until tomorrow (Monday) Mudd’s Market is 75% off.

Tomorrow (Monday) Fleet Action Report will be featuring a torpedo boat, and explaining how to build one!

GW2
Shadow of the Mad King: Oct 5 – Nov 9th

The Halloween Event is live!. Tons of things to do, including, a super fun (or frustrating) timed jumping puzzle, the single best cash and experience farm in the game, a game of simon says in a Halloween themed Lion’s Arch with Mad King Thorn, Beetle races and more.
Halloween Bonus Bash: (this ends on Tuesday)

If you go to the starting zones the mist stranger is giving one special weapon per account. This weapon has a fancy skin, and it levels with you. (think heritage stuff from wow).
There is also a super nice buff (again this ends on Tuesday) 50% XP (from everything), 30% Magic Find, and 30% WVW and PVP reward Track Progress. (if you are working on a legendary, this is a great time to grind out a gift of battle, or 2, in World vs World).

Seasons of Dragons (Return to Living World)
On October 19th we will return to the Icebrood Saga. I am not sure how this will be split up, there are 7 chapters in IBS, and chapter 7 is split into 4 sub chapters. If you have been keeping up, when you finish the return to Icebrood Saga, you will earn a legendary amulet!

The next Beta week is October 26 for the final 3 Elite specializations. Thief, Ranger, and Engineer. They have already previewed a picture of a scepter wielding Thief. If they follow the same pattern they have been, we should see what the actual classes are during the first week of return to IBS.

Guild stuff: Mandatory fun Nights happen on Mondays at 8:30 Central (the only real time zone), Maellung hosts dungeon nights (best to check discord for these). If you need help with ANYTHING in game, reach out in our discord channel. Jehdai is more than happy to help people get up tough jumping puzzles, complete difficult story achievements, or even abuse his catmander tag to bring the zerg to kill that pesky legendary you need for your griffon.

See you in Tyria!

LOTRO
We have a Kin house on Treebeard!!!!! The Kin house is located at 4 Brookbank in the Maltmead neighborhood in the Shire homesteads!!!!!! Decorating of the Kin house on Treebeard is open to all kin members. Please help us decorate the new house. We will be getting update 30.3 on Wednesday. The update will add the Brawler class as well as the new legendary system. The legendary system can be confusing at first but have no fear just ask in the lotro channel and we will do our best to answer any questions you have to learn the new system. Do not forget to redeem the code lotroquests2021 in the ingame store to unlock a ton of content for free on your entire account. Also reminder all expansions except Minas Morgul and War of Three Peaks are on sale for 99 LP. The code and expansion sale are good until the end of November

GAME NEWS

We have purchased the first two guild bank tabs, please feel free to drop stuff in the 2nd tab that other guildies might find useful, especially crafting materials.

The first tab, currently, will be for bags and other things in limited supply, much like it is in Retail WoW.

FFXIV
Things are looking up in Final Fantasy XIV as we wind down our Shadowbringers adventures and get ready for Endwalker on November 19th, launching Nov 19th for the head-start for pre-orders, and November 23rd for its normal launch.

Although we are at the tail end of the expansion, now is a great time to get started in FFXIV. There is a very generous trial that works fine on PCs, MACs, and Playstation 4s and 5s. While trials accounts can not join the Free Company (That’s FFXIv speak for a guild), we can provide a ton of assistance from the Discord server. If (or really, when) you purchase the game, there is an exchange of Friend Codes down in the discord server in the channel called ffxiv-friend-codes. If you do pick up a friend code, both parties will get rewards. Once a code is used, please “react” to the code with a checkmark to signify that the code has been consumed.

If you need an invite to the Free Company, just ask in our discord server in the ffxiv channel. An officer does not need to specifically be online, but anyone with a member rank or higher. A member rank is a character that has been in FFXIV for 30-ish days.

Do you like the FC buffs? Do you hate it when they expire? Well, do not despair, as any member can refresh the buffs! Just go into the FC actions in the FC panel and refresh them! Later on, we want to start to provide Grade 3 XP buffs over the weekends.

SWTOR
In guild news, AIE has captured another planet during the periodic Total Galactic War event. Anyone traveling to Makeb will be greeted with an ingame banner proclaiming that “Makeb is controlled by Alea Iacta Est Timor” and everyone in the guild has earned the title, “Conqueror of Makeb”. For MFN this week, we gathered on Makeb to take a screenshot of all the new conquerors before heading to the pub side to do more normal shenanigans.

In more guild news, MEGA has moved to Saturday nights! Last night, Marcus led everyone around the galaxy to kill World Bosses which Tabbytha had scouted out ahead of time. If you ever wanted to acquire the Lucky title AND the Unlucky title, just come with Marcus and Tabbytha one fine MEGA night to Corellia to kill the World Boss, Lucky.

In game news, Bioware is conducting a screenshot contest for the first time ever. They are looking for landscape-style shots from 10 specific planets. If you have a golden shutter finger, or just have a favorite spot, jump in and take the shot. The rules are posted on swtor.com, but if you drop into our discord, we can toss you a link. Submissions must be by October 5th. The top 10 winning entries will be made into decorations that we can all put in our strongholds. The winners themselves will get special versions that have gilded frames.

ESO
Last Fridays’ MFN was spent killing the world bosses in Craglorn. Fun was had and high bridges were jumped off of. A four person dungeon team has formed. AC/DC runs on Monday nights and is working their way through clearing all of the instanced dungeons on normal and veteran. We also are being lead off cliffs by Dankinia.

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

STO
New Ship Bundle: Starships of the Line: Steamrunner, includes 3 starships: Tier 1 Blockade Runner, Tier 5 Blockade Runner, and the new Tier 6 Appalachia Blockade Runner. The Appalachia will also be available as a solo purchase available in the Zen Store October 1st

Noob Raid plans to venture into Normal next Saturday if we have the composition for it. Watch guild chat around 10:45 pm server time for an announcement that invites are going out if you’d like to join the fun.

WoW Classic
SSC and TK are going live next Wednesday

SWTOR
In SWTOR game news, BioWare introduced personal loot recently. This coincided with removing Master Loot. Now, during Operations, other instanced content, and some World Bosses, loot goes right into our bags, including mounts, pets, and decorations. It feels a lot more like other MMOs in that respect. Out in the world, it’s been fun trying to predict how loot will behave. We think Bioware might not be exactly done tweaking the loot system. In fact, if we were to indulge in some irresponsible speculation, maybe they are making some system changes that will be needed for 7.0. Maybe!

The big news for the guild is that next week is Total Galactic War. Early in the week, we will pick a planet to go after by earning the highest number of Conquest points. It’s always fun, and sometimes even nail bitingly close. Conquest is a system of points you earn by doing different activities in the game. If you’d like to check out swtor, next week would be a great time to do it. Just get your character into the guild before 7AM on Tuesday in order for the points you earn to count!

Join us in a galaxy far, far away to have some fun and make some Conquest points!

ESO
We spent last week’s MFN splitting up in to groups to check out some dungeons

A four person dungeon team has formed. AC/DC runs on Monday nights and is working their way through clearing all of the instanced dungeons on normal and veteran

Being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

More dungeon fun – either instanced or public dungeons next week

FFXIV
See Game Notes

STO
The fleet is welcoming many new temporal agents. If you find yourself going back to the future, just let us know and we can get you a fleet invite. You have until October 7th to create a temporal agent, which requires you to finish the first 6 mission story arc on a TOS captain to get your transponder. This basically tracks your progress and gives you some challenges to complete for rewards that will also unlock account wide rewards as well.

The fleet had taken a big step forward with the fleet holdings; both of the big holdings, colony and starbase, are tier IV. It took us 100,000 experience in each branch to unlock tier IV, but to move to tier V, we have to go to 250,000. I mention this as it will appear our progress is going slow, but in reality it is a big step and don’t get discouraged. We will get there with the steady progress everyone has been putting into the projects. I appreciate all the hard work everyone has done to get us here and keep us moving forward.

GW2
Festival of the Four Winds is ongoing, 8 or 9 days left.

Seasons of the Dragon meta event is “Return to Long Live the Lich” in Kourna this week. Next week it is off to Jahai Bluffs and “Return to A Star to Guide Us”.

DirectX 11 Beta is also on Sept 21st. Along with the new WVW system of Alliances.

Next 3 elite specializations beta test also on September 21st.

Should be Revenant, Warrior, and Elementalist if everyone’s speculation is correct. They will reveal what the specializations are this week.

LOTRO
This past week we got our first look at the new “Brawler” class as well as 1st look at the new LI system on the test server. We are also a couple weeks away from buying a Kinship house on the legendary server “Treebeard”. A poll will be in the lotro discord for where do we want the kin house starting on Monday Swept 13th. Please vote and the winner will house AIE on Treebeard.

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

GAME NEWS
End of Shadowbringers recap.

Summer of 2019, June 28. Shadowbringers early access launch.

What an emotional and great base expansion.

Fall, Oct 29th 2019, Patch 5.1 hits, Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty
Continues the great story and emotions of the MSQ of Shadowbringers
Introduces the bulk of the FFXIV crew to the Nier universe, in which these raids are now canon in the Nier timeline.

That took us into the holidays and the new year 2020. February 18th, 2020, we have Echos of a Fallen Star.

The continuation of the MSQ and the next wing of Eden dropped. More great encounters, plot points, and coffee biscuits were added to our Final Fantasy Lives.

Then our lives were turned upside down.

The world may have paused, but our adventures and relationships in Eorzea never did. AIE still continued to flourish and the AIE Free Company still continued to move along. For many of us, this was our social interaction when in-person interactions were much more difficult or risky.

Square Enix was affected by the pandemic just as much as any other business. A traditional in-the-office company moved to a work from home configuration, and had to derive from their traditional 3-4 month patch cycle. We had to wait until August 11th for the devs to release 5.3, Reflections in Crystal. The conclusion of the main Shadowbringers story came to a epic conclusion, with further adventures into the Nier Raids.

This patch also brought us the newly changed free trial. This changed the terms of the trial to include all of the content from levels 1 to 60, including base game, the 1st expansion Heavensward, and all of its patch content. Not only did it give birth to the “Have you heard of the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV?” meme, it was a huge boon for the game and for AIE in general, as it gave a great way for people to try the game with no financial commitment.

Patch 5.4 returned to the normal 3-month-ish patch cycle, coming to us on December 15th, 2020. This started to set the first few story beats setting up the Endwalker expansion along with the great conclusion of the Eden series.. April 20th brought us 5.5, Death Until Dawn. More MSQ for us to enjoy along with the epic conclusion of the Nier raid series.

Then we had our all digital fan fest. The highlights of this event was the full announcement of Endwalker. The trailer they dropped was amazing, but please, if you haven’t seen it yet, wait until you finish all of the Shadowbringer patches for spoiler reasons. But for those that have reached that far, it is an excellent trailer.

After the Fan Fest, we had patch 5.55 on June 1st to end the story of Shadowbringers.

Then, the amazing happened. FFXIV was going into its longer than normal, end of expansion doldrums, giving time for them to polish up their new expansion to be released in the fall. During this time, game attendance tends to drop, people try out other games, and so forth. But in FFXIV, it didn’t. It grew. The reason could be because some major streamers started to give the game a look or some discontent within other games, but the fact remained: Final Fantasy 14 is an excellent game and most people who give it a try, love the game. And for those of us that have been here since the unprecedented relaunch of FFXIV: ARR, we have been telling you that (on this very podcast even!) all along.

For those that gave this game a look in as part of your MMO lifestyle and leisure time with AIE. Thank you. If you are going to be continuing your virtual adventures in FFXIV with AIE, then we can’t wait for all of us to all have new adventures for the first time in Endwalker. The start of any MMO expansion is an awesome experience, made only greater by an even awesome-er community. For those that have been here for awhile, joined us during your Shadowbringers adventures, or just recently joined AIE in FFXIV, thanks you. You guys rock and are the reason why we keep on doing what we do here in AIE.

New World

There is an open beta announced for September 9th through September 12th for people who have not yet had the opportunity to check out the game but are interested in seeing what the hype is about.

Game is currently scheduled to launch on September 28th and AIE is planning on a contingent of members playing.

Dual Universe

The game just celebrated its one year anniversary of being in Beta. And things have changed a lot in the past 12 months. New systems have been added into the game: schematics for building parts, mission systems to allow players to create work orders that others can fulfill and get paid, updated planet graphics, re-balancing of various ship parts, and most recently mineable asteroids spawning in space.

AIE has kept busy slowly building up infrastructure to support organization members in building whatever ships and structures they can imagine.

No Man Sky
No Man’s Sky will be releasing an update soon called Frontiers. It’s expected to be out as soon as next week but nothing is confirmed at the moment.

Destiny 2
Some notable news items for the game as a whole.

The Witch Queen expansion launches in Feb 2022 https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Destiny/WitchQueen?ciid=50638

Season of the Lost launched on 24 Aug and will last until the Witch Queen launch. One of the longest seasons yet. https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Seasons/SeasonOfTheLost

Cross-play is now enabled.

Clan invites can be requested though https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=2122972

WoW
Gustytail will be doing Guild runs of Trial of Style mini holiday. To make things interesting, Gusty will challenge participants to select transmog outfits based on Pokemon for the fashion competition. Guild runs this week, Friday at 6pm Eastern/3pm Pac for Alliance, Sat 6pm Eastern/3pm Pac for Horde.

WoW Classic
Serpentshrine Cavern (SSC) and The Eye (TK?) new raid tiers going live mid September.

Dungeon runs on Sunday and Wednesday nights from 9-11.

SWTOR
In Swtor, things are galloping along toward the new expansion, Legacy of the Sith. The public test server has been available several times with class changes to be experienced and tested. The new expansion will have a new Operation, new flashpoint, 5 new character levels, new story, and infrastructure and graphical improvements.

Recently, we had a pet acquisition night during MFN. BC led us around the galaxy to get various pets. Some required mysterious items, some had to be coaxed out of hiding with delicious bits of liver, and some were revealed by Czerka Corporation emails. If you ever dreamed of having a miniature tauntaun as a pet, we know where you can find one.

In other guild news, we are thinking of streamlining our Friday night schedule to give a little more time in between events. We might test out doing something on a Saturday night here in there as well. Stay tuned for more news. Even in a galaxy far, far, away, there are still only 7 days in a week apparently.

ESO
We spent last week in Craglorn and Wrothgar working on the Early Adventures Celebration event

Also, clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses, clearing Public dungeons, and of course, being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

Next week’s MFN (Sept 3rd) will be spent in Craglorn, Wrothgar, and maybe even Imperial city for the Early Adventures celebration

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

The Early Adventures celebration runs through Tuesday September 7th at 10am EST. Event tickets can be obtained, double loot boxes for daily rewards which have a chance to obtain crafting mats, style pages, and motifs.

The Walking Flame DLC and update 31 is now available on PC and will be on consoles on September 8th. Walking Flame DLC has 2 new dungeons and Update 31 includes assorted bug fixes, some balance changes, and performance improvements.

FFXIV
The game is currently celebrating it’s 8th anniversary with The Rising event, lasting through 9 Sep.

Adventurer Celebration Sale with lots of discounted outfits, mounts, fantasia and more on the FFXIV Online Store https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/43bfeb7ae966107c9f9f9067c84705460e144dbe

Every world server in the Crystal Data Center now has the preferred status “Road to 70” buff that grants +100% XP buff for all activities. Now is the time to make a new character and join the fun before the Endwalker expansion launches on 22 Nov.

The Free Company continues to grow (Alea Iacta Est on the Crystal Data Center, Goblin World server) with total membership of 340. The past few weeks have seen many new players joining in on the fun and participating in the public discord channel. Make sure to look at the pinned topics in any of AIE game division channels. In FFXIV’s pinned topics you’ll find links to the first issue of the “AIE Community Roundup” newsletter put together by Zoot, information how to receive invites to the FC, everyone’s favorite: spreadsheets, and other resourceful links.

The membership has put together a BLU (Blue Mage) Person Group that has been regularly helping each other acquire spells for this special job.

The Fishing Club has once again taken to the Oceans through regular trips to acquire all those lovely hi-cordials, special minions and mounts. You can typically find someone to party with when the event runs every two hours, and that’s the best way to maximize your score for the trip.

Maps Night continues to be a thing, every Saturday at 9:30PM EDT. Bring all the maps and reap the rare rewards including explosive showers of gil.

Please feel free to come ask questions in the AIE discord text and voice channels.

STO
Current in-game Event: Do you Believe in a No-Win Scenario

Features 2 TFOs, Sompek’s Arena for ground, and Kobayashi Maru for space
14 days of progress to earn grand prize which is a Temporal Hack Kit Module

Cryptic has added the ability to purchase Reroll and Pass tokens with Dilithium

Fleet Action Report will feature the current event during tonight’s episode at 11pm Eastern.

Fleet is almost at a Tier IV colony, it is counting down and nearing done.

GW2
Living world Season 4, Episode one is free this week. Next week will be episode 2, then 3, 4..until we are done.

Next beta weekend is Sept 21st. They already teased an image for the new elite spec. Maybe Greatsword Revenant, but could be anything.

Festival of the Four Winds starts on Tuesday. Usually fun stuff to do for these.

DirectX 11 Beta is also on Sept 21st. Along with the new WVW system of Alliances.

Still in the Middle of the Seasons of Dragons Meta Event, which is why the living world seasons are free. After we finish this week, if you have been keeping up with the bonus events, you will get a 32 slot bag.

LOTRO
Saturday Night Lotro now typically includes Maellung streaming! Catch the links in Discord when the events go live.

On Wednesday Mines of Moria opens up on the Shadowfax server. In the next couple weeks the new upcoming brawler class will be testable on Bullroarer. Labor Day weekend will bring us a VIP event.

Spread across the rest of the week are a series of special fun game events in almost every game division. These include player run events, special edition Mandatory Fun nights, and maybe even some contests and prizes.

Here’s the rundown of how each game celebrated the week.

NOMADS
The Nomads a special board game night Thursday night. They played two games of Downforce, which is a popular racing game, and a game of Love Letter.

WoW
Saturday’s Battle Pet Safari in WoW was lots of fun but with a small turnout, which is not too surprising given the current state of things. There were 5 players on Horde and 3 on Alliance and traveled Shadowlands collecting 11 different battle pets and 2 toys, including one that turns you into a red slime that runs around absorbing your friends. Best ever! There are rumors about doing more of these events, but in the meantime Gusty will keep giving pets away in Guild chat.

One of the stops for today’s Running of the Allied Races will be saying “Hi” to a certain new NPC in Stormwind. (Field Marshal Stonebridge)

They had a great time during Running of the Allied Races! Thank you Gusty for being our fearless and prepared guide and Fez for being coordinator extraordinaire!

Gusty posted some pictures from Running of the Beef that finished a little while ago. She conducted a tour of Stormwind, then led us out into the wilds to meet a Cat Lady. Then we went to Darnassus, rode through Darkshore and Ashenvale, and ended in The Barrens at the Shrine of the Fallen Warrior.

SWTOR
For SoL in swtor this week, the SWTOR crew had a special edition of MFN led and created by Corley called the Amazing Race. Guildies traveled the galaxy following clues and finding officers hidden at various spots. They ended up on Hoth where everyone jumped off an ice bridge, thus answering the age-old question. Lastly, prizes were had by all.

On Wednesday night Albus and Maellung led a special Operations night for SUP (Sith with unlimited Power) in honor of Jana, who started that team and kept it going through thick and thin. We miss you, Jana. Just so you know, there might have been a snowball or two just for you.

ESO
For ESO’s MFN, they grouped up and killed dragons as part of the event, did a quick stop at Sky’s in game house to check out the decor he did last year for SoL and discussed meeting up for Remembrance Day. They will be using Kini’s primary residence in game as a gathering spot while the processions are going on in other games.

FFXIV
They had a fantastic Map Night last night, with folks who couldn’t physically run maps yet, watching on Discord, and of course Remembrance Day coming up.

STO
The STO fleet did group FTOs (with instructions) last Monday during the Podcast. Tomorrow, Grebog is leading a flight from the fleet starbase to the Wolf 359 Memorial. Then, if there’s time, he will fly by the Romulus/Remus memorial, the Spock memorial, and the memorial plaque on ESD and Qo’nos.

GW2
For summer of love, the team ran Fractals with the guild during MFN.

LOTRO
Small group last night jumped in and played in-game music for a couple hours outside the Prancing Pony

Board and Swords – https://boardsandswords.com/blog?category=Boards%20%26%20Swords

Chris played Warhammer 40K, Pikachu V is alive – Boards & Swords #176

Lordy lordy, Chris played 40….K that is. Warhammer 40k specifically. Plus, People are shelling out for TCGs still, Asmodee is bringing the hammer to counterfeits, and speaking of Warhammer – there’s going to be a subscription for Warhammer stuff?

NOMADS
Destiny 2 has come alive again. We now have a raid team that will be running Monday Nights. We also run fun missions on Sunday nights. Solstice of Heros started this week as well. Its the summer event and it will run unitl Aug 26th. Thats when the next Season starts. We hope we will get the “Witch Queen” reveal that day as well. Lots of fun happening over here in Destiny 2! Time to suit up Guardian.

New World Open Beta begins July 20th. Keep an eye out for discussion in the Nomad section of discord as the game opens up for all to experience.

Diablo 3 season 23 ends on July 18th and season 24 begins on July 24th

WoW
Noob Raid resumes on July 17th. I suspect as Wing 1 of LFR is launching this Tuesday, that there may be some shenanigan’s in the new LFR. If that’s the case, the minimum iLevel will be 195.

SWTOR
See Game Notes

ESO
We had a short break from being lead off cliffs while our fearless leader was on vacation.
However, things that still occurred, clearing zones of Skyshards and Worldbosses, clearing Public dungeons, being lead off cliffs by not-Dankinia

MFN resumes on July 16th and activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. See above for the general idea.

FFXIV
FFXIV just had their most recent Live Letter from the Producer, where they showcased a bunch of Endwalker previews. One nugget is the Official Benchmark tool, to let you test out your PC for Endwalker as well as the character creator, so you can create the perfect catboi for your Endwalker needs. If you do download it and make some new characters, go ahead and post some pics to the #pics-or-it-didnt-happen channel. We’d love to see what you can come up with. No sub needed for the Benchmark.

If your sub has lapsed, there is a call back campaign going on. 14 free days from when you first log in during the campaign, which runs from July 9 to August 23. We’d love to see a lot of old faces drop on by and meet the new ones.

Another FFXIV reminder, that any member in the Free Company has the rights to invite new players to the FC. So, if you area a member and have a friend, family member, or just meet a cool person in game, you are welcome to toss them an invite!

A quick reminder that the often asked for Regalia Mount (the 4-seat car) will be acquirable again in September as a re-run of the Final Fantasy 15 event.

Finally, FFXIV has that super generous free trial with no time restrictions. While the trial does not let you join a FC, we on the Discord server are happy to answer questions or help out newcomers to the game. If you do end up liking the game and buying into it, the great folks in AIE will be happy to help you make the jump.

To all current, past, and future Warriors of Light, thank you for spending your gaming time with us!

STO
Federation Fleet has completed the K-13 holding. So, be sure to go there and pick up new cosmetics from the tailor there and superior traits from the biologist.

The Colony holding is moving right along and closing in on Tier IV unlocks. While the Fleet Starbase is also moving along nicely as well.

KDF Fleet: Is working towards Tier 2 of the Dlithium Mine holding for those sweet discounts.

Fleet Action Report will be celebrating its 53rd episode and 1 year anniversary with blowing up Grebog over and over again in a PVP fun match. Come watch us kill Grebog again and again 9 PM Eastern on Monday.

GW2
Dungeons and more night is this Friday from 9-11 eastern.

Legendary Armory comes July 13th along with the twisted marionette from living world season 1.

The legendary Armory is a place where you can share your legendary items with all of your characters. Don’t have any legendaries? If you keep doing the bonus achievements associated with the living world return, then you will be awarded with a precursor for an End of Dragons (next xpac) legendary weapon and if you complete all of the bonus achievements you will get a legendary amulet.

The Twisted Marionette is from Living world season 1, which only ran once and has never been been revisited until now. (all of season 1 content was not instanced.) This event runs from the 13th to the 20th, and is accessed through an NPC in the eye of the north.

Finally, we are at Season 3, Episode 2 in the return to the living world event. Episode 3 and its bonus achievements unlock on Tuesday. As a reminder, each week the episode is available to be unlocked for free, (check your in game mail for a message from ArenaNet). If you have been keeping up with the Bonus achievements when season 3 finishes up, we will get the item that will let us unlock the end of dragons precursor weapon.

The reward for finishing season 2, 3, and 4 will be the 32 slot bag. and as stated before after finishing everything plus Icebrood Saga will be the legendary amulet.

In ultra bonus news: End of Dragons has been officially delayed until 2022. In the meantime we will be getting a world vs world makeover in the form of alliances. (more on this later). End of Dragons will also bring a directx 11 client. Which should hopefully help with many of the performance issues the game suffers from on dx9.

LOTRO
New legendary servers have opened, Shadowfax and Treebeard. Shadowfax is +50% normal xp and will open the next area about every 2 months. Treebeard is -60% normal xp and will open next area every 5-6 months. AIE has a kinship on Treebeard. You do need to be vip to play on the legendary servers. If you want an invite on Treebeard let us know in the lotro channel.

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

Fleet Action Report ep 47 Klingon House United
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDgaGq0yi_Q

Star Trek Online starts a new season, Klingon House United, and Fleet Action Report is here to bring the new information. Nikodas and Grebog are back covering all the various information that is dropped in the new season from new TFOs, missions, and patrols and how they are all part of the new event.

Fleet Action Report ep 48 plasma besides in your giant displays
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REObrLPmgxk

Nikodas and Grebog are back with another episode of Fleet Action Report, talking about Star Trek Online. We go into the current events in game and all the details about what you should look for in a plasma build. Next week we will be covering some TFOs.

NOMADS
The AIE board gaming group is meeting the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month. So the next gaming session will be this Thursday, July 1st. They currently plan to play Tzolk’in, a Mayan-themed worker placement game with a unique gear mechanism which dynamically determines what workers can do.

“… People are still in and out…” does pretty much cover the activity specific to AIE participation in Diablo 3 and Destiny 2 every week at this point. However, if you want something that may put the notion of trying these games again into people’s heads, here’s a bullet point for each…

Division 2
Season 6 is live, a callback to the old Season 3 content if you haven’t completed it.
https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/the-division/the-division-2/news-updates/27d98ROzZw7eGMaVjKELCq/season-6-concealed-agenda-is-back

Diablo III
Season 24 is around the corner and testing on the PTR will go live in about a week. It’ll introduce a new weapon type called Ethereals. Details at https://us.diablo3.com/en-us/blog/23679609/diablo-iii-ptr-271-%7C-preview-blog-6-10-2021

Diablo II Remastered, Reloaded, no Resurrected will launch, with cross-play on September 23rd, 2021. Early access to the open beta sign-ups are at https://diablo2.blizzard.com/en-us/

WoW
Noob Raid News – There will be no Noob Raid on July 3rd and July 10th.

Chains of Domination, Patch 9.1 will be coming out June 29th. Too many changes/updates to list, but a couple of things to highlight. There will be a new land area to explore, flying available in the 2nd or 3rd week of the patch just for doing your covenant story line, a new raid, a new megadungeon, and a revamped Torghast as well as you’ll be able to ride your mounts in the Maw.

Tets and Mew, I know the two of you are a bit burned out with WOW right now. Is there anything that is tweaking your interests in this new patch?

WoW Classic
We’ve moved to Mankrik, Horde Side for the Burning Crusade Classic, feel free to check the AIELFO channel in game (/join aielfo) and/or use #LFO or #wow-classic on AIE’s Discord server.

SWTOR
It was TOTAL GALACTIC WAR. The guild won another planet. All the guild events last week were co-opted for this effort and all guildies in their individual and group play contributed to points to help us win. This opportunity only comes around a few times a year. Winning a planet means that for a period of time, everyone who arrives on that planet will see the words, “CZ-198 Controlled by Alea Iacta Est Timor”.

In game news, we are shocked, shocked to see gambling going on in here. The Nar Shaddaa Night Life event is just around the corner. Come to the casino with a few credits in your pocket and unfounded hope in your heart. It only takes a little luck to win the top prizes. Or maybe a lot of luck. Or infinite luck. You have from June 29 to August 10th. Plenty of time to procrastinate….

Also, Double XP is coming back starting on June 29 and going until July 13th.

FFXIV
The AIE Membership in FFXIV has shown a steady increase in numbers and a very high member retention rate in the past few weeks, leading up to even before the Fan Fest. Many thanks to all of the FFXIV old timers and new folks coming on board to enjoy the adventures in Eozrea with AIE. We are successful because of you folks. So, big shout out to all of you.

Patch 5.55 is still the current content patch. This includes the last step of the resistance weapon quest line, which is the best in slot for every job with no need to jump into savage raiding.

Endwalker, the next expansion to FFXIV will be coming out on November 23 (or the 19th for the pre-orders), but there’s a bunch of in-game events happening until then.

Sometime in June (that’s the month we are currently in), we will get the Make It Rain event, which is a Gold Saucer event. Rack up those MGPs to get all of those awesome cosmetics, mounts, minions, and hairstyles!

Sometime in the June/July time frame, we will get a balance patch 5.56, and then another balance patch 5.57 in July/August time frame. This will prep the game up for Endwalker release. We will get more info on this soon!

The Moonfaire and the Rising will be coming in August. This event is normally a celebration of the players and the rebirth of the game many years ago. This event usually falls at or very close to AIE’s own Remembrance Week, so look forward to future announcements on that.

If that’s not enough content for you, AIE is running content on a regular basis.

FF14 AIE Content Progression

Join us down in the #ffxiv channel for more details on the game. Remember, if you are on the fence on this game, the entirety of the base game and the first expansion Heavensward (level 60) is available at no cost. You can check this out on PC, Mac, Steam (for PC), Playstation 4, and the recently released native Playstation 5 version. Regardless of your platform, all players share the same servers, and there’s no limitations on what content or control scheme a platform can use. We love welcoming new players to AIE in Eorzea and we can’t wait to welcome you as well.

ESO
Standard activities include: Clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses, Clearing Public dungeons, and best of all, being lead off cliffs by Dankinia!

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week we’ll be making our way through the two public dungeons in the new Blackwood zone.

STO
The end of the Klingon Civil War comes in the House United Season.

Only Qo’nos Endures Event: Earn a 4-piece ground set by playing new missions, new TFOs, or new patrols all centered around the new season.

New Bridge for KDF Captains: Based one a new in-game mission.

Fleet Action Report is looking for people to help with a PVP episode in 2 weeks. If you’re interested in helping, you can find contact information at https://fleetactionreport.com

GW2
Same deal with logging in and getting old living world stuff for free. I think season 2 episode 5 and 6 are free now. 7 and 8 on Tuesday. If you have been keeping up with the bonus achievements next week should be the first big reward, an ascended weapon of choice. Of course you can go and take your time with these bonuses. Achievements. If you do them all you will get a legendary amulet.

July’s Dungeons and More will be pushed back a week until July 16th

LOTRO
Update 30 ‘Blood of Azog’ has arrived, along with the ‘Yore of Azanulbizar’. The new Fall of Khazad-dûm raid is available, along with a handful of balancing tweaks to characters.

https://www.lotro.com/en/content/update-30-release-notes

‘The War of the Rohirrim’ will be an anime style telling the tale of Helm (of Helm’s Deep) Hammerhand. There is a lot of Rohirric history that could be covered.

https://www.theonering.net/torwp/2021/06/10/110782-lord-of-the-rings-anime-from-new-line-announced-philippa-boyens-attached/

And with that, let’s Chat!

What have we been doing in and out of game?

GAME NEWS
What games, that have changed their systems/mechanics, drove you away from the game OR brought you back/into the game?

Love the lore, hate the systems, etc.

Examples

D&D 4th Ed vs. 5th Ed

D&D Pen and Paper vs. Video game

Mass Effect 1 vs 2 (Weapon Heat vs. Clips), Planetary missions vs. Scanning Planets

SWTOR 1-50 (Launch content with character stories) vs. one story for all

WoW Legion vs. every other expansion

Fallout 3 vs 4 vs 76 ?

WoW Classic
Are you prepared?! THREE DAYS until Burning Crusade Classic launches on June 1st!

New Server: Mankrik-US

Faction: Horde

We were previously on Pagle for WoW Classic but have since changed servers to Mankrik for Burning Crusade Classic!

Once you have created a new character and/or transferred one to Mankrik there are two ways you can be invited to :

The AIE Mounts program is back again! (Insert info from Lars here please)

We look forward to continuing our adventures together again…

THE DARK PORTAL AWAITS US, AIE GUILD!

The AIEMounts interest free loan program to obtain your level 30 mount is continuing in The Burning Crusade. Current details are being worked out but in the meantime contact Lars Gagner via direct message in the AIE Disord. Any donations to the fund are accepted for a possible expansion to be able to help members with loans towards epic riding and perhaps eventually flying mount training. Details about the program is available on the AIE Guild web site or directly via the URL https://bit.ly/aiemounts

SWTOR
This past Friday Marcus, Looci, Tabbytha, and Albus conducted the MEGA event “Where in the Galaxy is Sema San Diego”. Everyone gathered on Hoth, where the pirate Max the Graybeard spun piratical tall tales about where Sema might be. Players worked tirelessly ALL NIGHT to find the items needed to provide clues and Sema was finally found. The winner of the night was Velicc and everyone went to the guild ship where treasures from the guild bank were had by all.

In game news, the new Flashpoint is called Secrets of the Enclave and continues the story of Darth Malgus. He has broken his chains and wants nothing to do with the Empire OR the Republic. We chase his trail into the ancient Jedi Enclave, but only find leftover resonances of him. So far he has escaped us, but he apparently has gotten his hands on two very powerful relics. We don’t know what he is up to, but it can’t be good.

Join us on Tuesdays for MFN and Fridays for our rotating night of Master Mode Flashpoints, Hard Mode Ops Training, Achievements, and MEGA!

The end of the Klingon Civil War comes in the House United Season.

Only Qo’nos Endures Event: Earn a 4-piece ground set by playing new missions, new TFOs, or new patrols all centered around the new season.

New Bridge for KDF Captains: Based on a new in-game mission.

Lobi store, Zen, and Key Sale until 5/31.

Fleet Action Report is looking for people to help with a PVP episode in 5 weeks. If you’re interested in helping, you can find contact information at fleetactionreport.com.

FFXIV
Guild activities continue as we get ready for Part two of the most recent patch. Teams are running Bozja, for their artifact weapons. Looking for treasure in all the right (and wrong) places on Map Nights. And trying to figure out if that pixel, yes that pixel, is really a safe place to stand on during an EXTREME raid on Eden’s Promise!

GW2
First two episodes of Living world season 2 are Free for a few days longer, log in, get them. If you play through them and do the new bonus meta achievement you will get fancy rewards. After completing 4 of the new living world bonus meta’s you will get your choice of ascended weapon. after 10, you’ll get a thing that you can turn in for en “end of dragons” (next xpac) legendary weapon precursor. Then after 16 you will get a massive 32 slot inventory bag, and when you finish all 24, the final reward is a legendary amulet and a title.

So far for the first 2 episodes, you just had to play through both of them, (no special challenges needed), Then do the following in Drytop: gather 150 things (50 each of wood, ore, and plants), do 10 events, open 20 hidden locked chests.

Jehdai assumes that all 24 will take you to the end of Icebrood Saga, so you will be able to pick up any episodes you missed, without having to buy them on the gem store.

The next two episodes should unlock on Tuesday after reset. (which means you only have about 2 days to log in and claim Episodes 1 and 2 for free).

LOTRO
The Buried Treasure Event has arrived! Available through May 31st.

https://twitter.com/lotro/status/1397966058686910475

Development continues on Update 30: Blood of Azog, and the new Yore of Azanulbizar ‘session/instance’.

Blood of Azog introduces a new story set after the events of the War of Three Peaks, introducing new characters and allowing the player to experience historical moments in Middle-earth’s history as Prince Durin and the Gabil’akkâ make ready to reclaim Mount Gundabad. Players can begin this story by talking to Glóin inside Annâk-khurfu in Elderslade, and it serves as a prologue for adventures to come in Gundabad.

Among the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain, studious scholars have kept detailed accounts of the history of Durin’s Folk. Within these lengthy volumes, there is the tale of the Sixth War of the Dwarves and Orcs, which ended with the Battle of Azanulbizar. Player will experience the momentous events of the battle as their own characters, but through the eyes of Hermáth Stormhammer, a hero of Durin’s Folk, as recounted in his written works.

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

GAME NEWS
The new expansion, Blackwood, and Update 30 come out on June 1st for PC and June 8th for consoles. Blackwood brings a new zone (including a trial, world events, delves and public dungeons), continues this year’s Gates of Oblivion adventure, and adds the new companion system. The new companion system is a way to get an NPC to fight alongside you. There will be quests to recruit them as well as loyalty quests and you will be able to customize their abilities, outfits, and more. Update 30 brings a new tutorial experience. Previously every new chapter brought a different tutorial which meant tenured players had to create a new toon to try it out and see that new story content every expansion. They’ve changed that so going forward everyone one will get the same tutorial and when you complete it, it will let you choose which expansion your character starts in. In mid June, the Endeavors system will be launched for all ESO players, no matter the expansion they have purchased. This system will bring new daily and weekly tasks that reward players gold or experience as well as a new currency. The tasks align with normal in-game activities such as completing quests, killing certain monsters, and harvesting materials. The new currency will allow you to purchase any of the currently available crown crate items without the randomness of opening a crate purchased for crowns and hoping you get the reward you want.

For MFN on June 4th we will focus on checking out the new area with a zone clear.

The game is buy to play, and subscription is ESO+ which will provide an unlimited crafting bag and double your housing and inventory storage.

NOMADS
We’re gearing up to take down the next boss (Moder) in Valheim. Anyone interested in joining the fun should jump into the Discord channel so we can coordinate a time and work to get everyone the items they’ll need for the fight.

WoW
Most of the current WoW news is focused on WoW Classic, however, here’s a brief raid wrap-up

DoA is now 1/10 Heroic
HFO (Alliance Raid team) is 4/10 Heroic Castle Nathria.
PJFC is 9/10 Heroic

If you have an alliance character that’s looking to raid, reach out to Fezgig in AIE Discord for time and day for HFO!

WoW Classic
Guild is in the process of moving to Mankrik (but character moving is paused until pre-patch) then to TBC on Tuesday (that’s when you decide, for each character, if it goes to TBC or stays in Classic Forever) ; no presence of AIE in Classic Forever is expected

The Burning Crusade pre-patch is hitting Live on Tuesday, with new race and all classes on both sides (for Horde, Blood Elf and Paladin) ; levelling is 30% faster (on average)

TBC will be live in two weeks on June 1st, and we’ll be able to go through the Dark Portal

SWTOR
MEGA this month will be Friday the 21st. Join Marcus, Looci, and Tabbytha as they lead us in a hunt for clues to solve the mystery of “Where in the Galaxy is Sema San Diego”.

Double XP, Renown, and Valor is still ongoing in SWTOR until the 18th. XP is always pretty fast in SWTOR, but during this period it goes right to ludicrous speed!

Also, login and check out the new battle pass system called Galactic Seasons. The first season goes for 5 months and awards a new companion, enough currency to buy a new Fleet Stronghold, and many other rewards. It’s a little overwhelming at first glance, so don’t hesitate to join discord and ask questions.

FFXIV
The Final Fantasy Digital Fanfest has come to a close, but exciting stuff was revealed for the next expansion, Endwalker!
1. The new Melee DPS class is “Reaper”, a 2 handed scythe wielder who appears to employ magic from the Void in their attacks, along with summoning what is FFXIV’s version of a demon to both attack and to fuse with during certain phases of the rotation. It will share gear with Dragoon, require a level 70 to access and start at level 70.
2. As was speculated from the first trailer, we will finally get to visit Old Sharlayan in Endwalker. Any veterans from 1.0 will recognize the name of this polis to the far north west of Eorzea, from which many of our allies originate. But will the Sharlayans take to the field with us as the Final Days approach, or will they continue to stay holed up in the walls of their grand city?
3. The male Viera have finally shown their face! As of right now Viera are a female exclusive race, but in Endwalker all aspiring bunnies will get to pick from both genders. Hrothgar will stay exclusively male at Endwalker’s release but the plan is to release female hrothgar as soon as they are ready.
4. Endwalker will release on November 23rd 2021, with early access beginning November 19th. This stretches the definition of “Fall 2021” a bit, as admitted by the dev team. But new content will be released in Patch 5.55 to keep us busy between now and then.

1. Patch 5.55 will be released on May 25th, 2021
2. This will include the final story chapter of the 5.X series, leading into Endwalker.
3. The “Save the Queen” storyline, where we liberate Bozja from Garlemald, continues with the release of a new battlefield, Zadnor, and a new 48 main raid called “[]”. This will include the final stages of the Shadowbringer’s Relic Weapon!
4. The Final Fantasy 15 collaboration will return in September! Get the chance to hangout with Noctis and much more importantly, steal his car!

Did you know that FFXIV’s free trial goes to level 60, and includes the critically-acclaimed expansion Heavensward? Considering the wait for the expansion, now is the perfect time to come join us in FFXIV!

ESO
Clearing zones of Skyshards and Worldbosses
Clearing Public dungeons
Being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week we will be focusing on clearing a couple of public dungeons

The Explorer’s Celebration mini event is now live until May 20th and rewards double exp from every source which will stack with xp boosts such as scrolls. It also gives double gold from kills, quests, and other sources and increased yield from harvest nodes (except fishing). There are no event tickets rewarded as part of this event.

STO

GAME NEWS
This weekend has been a 25% bonus to all Skirmish Mark gains

In Valheim, another possible boss night on a Wednesday night coming up in the next week or two.

The Board Game night is coming up on 5/6.

Don’t forget to take a look at the Nomads section of discord to keep up to date on these events and other shenanigans.

WoW
WoW met the goals to unlock Bananas and Daisy. You have to get them for free from the shop via the Battlenet launcher. They do not automatically appear in your collections in-game. To wear Daisy as a backpack, you have to target your Daisy pet (after summoning) and type “/beckon” for it to work. Once Daisy is riding on your back, you can summon another battle pet to tag along with your adventures.

Patch 9.1 PTR continues and there were several interviews with Ion H this week going over patch 9.1 details.

WoW Classic
The TBC pre patch coming soon, and Burning Crusade 4-6 weeks later.
Many new players are coming to participate in the best 2 WoW expansions of all time (TBC and Wrath)… so come join us !

SWTOR
A content patch dropped this past week bringing a new flashpoint, a new story beat, and the beginning of a new pvp season. But above all that, it brought a new system called Galactic Seasons. Daily and weekly objectives award points, currency and rewards. You can spend the currency along the way or save it up for the big prize of a new stronghold on the fleet. This season is called “The Stranger from Kubindi” and starts out with a new companion named Altuur zok Adon. It is similar to a battlepass type system in other games, so you can buy progress as well.

But wait, there’s more! Double XP returns starting May 4th and continuing until May 18th. And, as is the tradition, there will be a new astromech in the mail for everyone. No matter where we go for MFN this Tuesday night, XP is sure to rain down.

And last but not least, join us this Friday for Master Mode Flashpoints with Maellung. This will be on the imperial side and will target those flashpoints that are required for the Aratech Ice Mission.

FFXIV
Our Thursday event heading into the fields of Bozja is on break until the next area is released in patch 5.55.

The digital fanfest begins on Friday May 14th and will be streamed for free and will reveal more about the next expansion, Endwalker, which releases sometime this year. This will include the reveal for the new melee class.

ESO
The guild has been clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses and being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week they will be focusing on clearing a couple of public dungeons

If you play ESO on the new Xbox or Playstation, on June 8th the “Console Enhanced” modes will be released. The update provided improvements to reflections, textures, draw distance and more while giving options to select between Performance and Fidelity modes.

STO
STO is running the following events:
1st: Tholian Trouble: A new event from May 4th to may 25th. This event hosts two updated TFOs, and rewards a new universal console that you can equip on any ship.
2nd: Bonus Dilithium Event: Earn bonus dilithium until May 4th; This is an in-game currency that can be used to purchase in-game items or traded for Zen which is STOs real-life currency.
3rd: Galaxy goes to Red Alert until May 4th; This is a 2 week long event. If you complete 10 days of participation you’ll earn a Specialization Point, an Ultimate Tech Upgrade, and an Experimental Ship Upgrade.
4th: Command the Jovian Heavy Raider; A new top-tier ship added to the Infinity Lockbox.
5th: Command the The Kwejian Pilot Escort; A new top-tier ship added to the Angel’s Wake Lockbox.
6th: Delta Recruitment Event until May 13th on PC and from May 13th to June 10th on Consoles; This event allows newly created characters to become Delta Recruits, a special type of character that rewards various in-game items for completing in-game challenges, such as leveling or joining a fleet. Some of these rewards can be collected on any characters attached to the account.
7th: The Hosts of Fleet Action Report are inviting anyone and everyone to join them in-game on Monday nights after their show ends. They are planning on running TFOs that are attached to any current events. If there are no current events, they will run whichever TFOs Captain’s are needing.
All of this and more will be discussed on the Fleet Action Report livestream 9pm Eastern Monday night.

GW2
The monthly dungeon and more has a set schedule, 2nd Friday of the month, so the next dungeon and more night is May 14th.

There are actually a couple fun and exciting game things happening right now: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/guild-wars-2-live-summer-2021/

Starting May 25, Living World episodes will be in the spotlight chronologically. Episodes are free to unlock during their spotlight week, and we’ll update them with new achievements. Complete all the new Living World Season 2 and 3 achievements to earn a voucher for a Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons precursor weapon. When the expansion launches, you can redeem it and begin crafting your very own third-generation legendary weapon

LOTRO
14th Anniversary event runs April 21- May 11.

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