New World

AIE has a handful of people checking in each week as the overall population of New World continues to grow and the “recent reviews” continue to remain high. The new zones and holiday content were a highlight. It’s quiet but if anyone wants to check it out they just need to ask and we can get them in the AIE Company.

No Man Sky is wrapping up their end-of-year expedition replays which are a fun way to see the game.

Lost Ark
The AIE presence has been reduced to one guild. Membership is still open for anyone to join. As always, drop a request in the lostark discord channel once you’ve submitted an application.
Activity is low for the game, use discord to find partners for activities.

Roadmap: https://www.playlostark.com/en-us/news/articles/2023-roadmap-part1

January Update: https://www.playlostark.com/en-us/news/articles/january-2023-update-announce

WoW
Now that the holidays are past us, Noob Raid has resumed. We are currently working though wing 1 and 2 of LFR. Unfortunately due to game restraints, there is an ilvl requirement of 359 but in a few weeks we will probably dive into normal.

WoW Classic
Acclaimed Ulduar 10/25 raid is starting next Thursday, with a Hard Mode available for each boss independently
Current (older) 10 man content will drop 25 man content, to stay relevant
Current (older) 25 man content will drop even more 25 man loot than before
5 man dungeons will have a Hard Mode option for better gear (old Naxx 10), to stay relevant
daily 5 man dungeon quest will reward the new tokens and new crafting orb, making it very useful

SWTOR
The season of snowballs has come to a close and we are looking forward to 2023. 2022 brought a lot of infrastructure, UI, and behind-the-scenes revamping, so we are hoping 2023 will bring us a lot of really cool player-facing content.

Showdown on Rhunuk dropped in December. It brought a large story chunk, a new planet, new dailies, a new reputation track, and new achievements (including some hidden ones). The cinematics that came with this content update have been the best so far.
Additionally, a flashpoint (and story beat) that we previously thought was just part of a side story is turning out to have tendrils feeding back into the main story. We are waiting for Malgus’s next move.

Join us on Tuesday nights when we knock out some Operations, Conquest targets, and Galactic Seasons targets. Everyone is welcome.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– MFN’s have resumed after our holiday break and we’ve been venturing into trials again.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– The next Tales of Tribute tournament starts Monday January 16th. This time it will only run for four weeks and consist of 3 matches per week. Places 1-10 will be paid out again with 1st place getting 1 mil gold. If you are not already registered, and you are interested, reach out to Kraemer in the discord and thank you to Kraemer and Dragger for funding the event again.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

STO
Fed fleet is days, maybe a week out from starting the Tier 5 Renewable Energy project, which will then let us start the Colony major Tier 5 project after it.

KDF Fleet Starbase Tier 2 is counting down now. The dilithium mine is knocking at the door for Tier 3 and completion

Fun nights are still Thursday at 10pm Eastern. Come and join us, just set your phasers to fun.

GW2
The Lunar New Year festival is back and has 2 more weeks to run. We had a chill Dungeons and More night on Friday, trying the festival activities. New weapons set this year, “Fireworks”. MFN is still happening every Monday night.

LOTRO
It is a new year, we are half way through January and that means one of the best events is almost here. The ill omens skirmish event will run from February 2nd-February 27th. Let’s group up and earn some pets and other rewards.

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

GAME NEWS
FFXIV just got patch 6.3!

Big Highlights

  • Continues with the story of your character trying to find something to do in his retirement after saving the universe, And the Void story line that started with 6.3.
    • As a great redditor said, we got “Zero character development!” this patch, aka character development for the character we met in a previous patch named Zero.
  • Also continues the Myths of the Realm 24 main raid story line, where we explore more about the 12 Gods of Eorzea.
    • Big fan of this as it is one of the big mysteries since 1.0.
    • Maybe talk about primals vs “Real” gods?
      • Primals are created via magic(Aether) and like to enslave people.
      • The primals of the gods(Dynamis) were summoned at the end of 1.0 to seal Bahamut away, so even an in-game character states that is all they are and they are not real, just like Ifrit or Garuda.
      • I’ll let the game speak to me if that is true or not.
    • If you like violins and fiddles I highly suggest this latest raid.
      • If you like music I recommend FFXIV generally.
        • And actually I recommend FFXIV generally.
  • Lots of additional story content
  • Paladin got a big rework which is somewhat rare for FFXIV in the middle of an expac.
    • Paladin would cycle into melee and holy magic phases, very rigid rotation.
    • Both mix now more regularly in the rotation, and it is much less rigid.
    • 1 mistake won’t ruin your DPS anymore.
    • Despite having a shield paladin was sort of the least defensive tank in terms of its cooldowns.  THis has been fixed.
  • They fixed Machinist for high latency players as well
  • Got a new map dungeon which is more focused on boss fights.  Fights are not a pushover!
  • Big expansion to the amount of houses available.  1800 added per server.
    • Auto demolition has begun as well so more houses will be coming as those who have left the game’s houses get demolished in 45 days from patch day
  • New PVP arena and Island Sanctuary updates.  Ever want to have a morbol farm?  Well now you can, you freak!
  • But no one cares about any of that.  WHat you really want to know is that your character can now automatically get an umbrella out when it rains.  Even when walking into rain from a sheltered area!

 

The rest of the 6.3 patch series will include:

  • New ultimate raid, “The Omega Protocol”
  • New deep dungeon, Eureka Orthos
  • Somehow Further Hildibrand Adventures
  • Next stage of our relic weapons.
  • Relic tools for crafters and gatherers
  • New tribal quests for crafters.  Is saying the name of the tribe a spoiler?

Merry Christmas!

From Albus – We have had a lot of fun with board gaming, and there’s one particularly epic game of King of Tokyo that Face of Case won which stands out in my mind. He rolled just right and pulled off a double win! I’m looking forward to more people joining in next year and also the next AIE Con.

From Maellung – This year the D&D channel has been busy. Tons of great talk in there. Next year there are DMs and future new DMs looking to run some stuff.

From Max – Nomads in general, we’ve had players hosting private servers for AIE this year for us all to try out a ton of fun games. Definitely worth a shoutout to Sartavius and Fez organizing stuff in Valheim, Nazrai in Empyrion and Ark, Corley in Rust, etc. (am I missing any?) We really appreciate the extra hosting and organizing work!

WoW
Dankinia – Noob Raid and Noob Raid. Dankinia is looking forward to seeing how many Evokers show up on January 7th when Noob Raid returns.

Gusty – The biggest activity for me was AIE Con, with multiple WoW events and four Dungeons and Dragons one-shots – one led by a first time Dungeon Master. Most memorable, our Horde and Alliance players teamed up for a last minute Fated Raid on Dragonflight launch day. They defeated The Jailer with only an hour to spare, earning several people a very cool mount, Jigglesworth Senior.

I am looking forward to raiding with my Drak-theer Evoker – the new draconic race & class – and perfecting my Dragonriding skills.

WoW Classic
Looci – For me, it’s having the Akela’s Wrath team, working together to do end game content, and helping each other out. Again, AIE is about the people, and we have GREAT people in Classic. I love you guys!

Lars – 2022 was the first time I actually joined a team and raided in WoW. Really this is the first time for me to have any sustained group content outside of Eve Online in AIE. So I must say that I am very happy for that and send a big hug to our raid team Akela’s Wrath.

SWTOR
From Sema – High points for AIE in swtor this year include a new Operation (raid), where guildies are still progressing, and Total Galactic War, where we won two new planets. We also got major UI upgrades including the much awaited, game-changing color blind mode. BC handed the reins of MFN over to Corley who has been making our Tuesdays so much fun. And we’ve welcomed new members all year long. It’s been a good year.

ESO
From Dankinia – I think the biggest, most memorable event of the year in ESO was the Tales of Tribute tournament. Six weeks of chatting, playing cards, and some good natured competition. Everyone got a prize at the end, thanks to the generous donations of Kraemer and Drager, and we all had fun. Next year we are looking forward to another ToT tournament and possibly a fishing tournament.

From Kraemer – Greeting AIE community we are now opening up signing up for the second AIE guild Tales of Tribute tournament that will start Monday January 16th 2023. To sign up all you have to do is respond in the tot channel or dm @Kraemer29 on discord. The tourney will run for 4 weeks this time for a total of 12 matches against each other. You will play 3 matches per week for 4 weeks if there is a tie for example tied for 1st the players tied will get 1st and 2nd and then divided by 2 to split evenly among the tied players. We will once again pay the top 10 spots.

2nd – 750,000

Total gold in prizes will be 2,820,000.
Good luck to all those who are interested in signing up for the tourney.

FFXIV
From Abovan – With the release of Endwalker, it has been awesome to see and hear all of the AIE members reactions to the 8-year conclusion of the first major story arc in FFXIV. And then, from those passions, how it attracts other new players to AIE to see how you can truly have an engaging, entertaining, and emotional storyline in a MMO. And then their emotions and reactions through the game grabs the interest of the next wave of players, and the cycle repeats itself.

From Sahja Moshraka/Elaine of Shalott
The last Sunday Retro Treasure Hunt will be level 80 Treasure Maps on December 18th at 4PM Eastern. Then join us in the new year as AIE in FF14 embarks on the Magical Miscellany Tour. Each Friday Night at 9PM Eastern the tour will make a new stop. Events include Retro Treasure Maps, Mount and Glamour farms, Crazy Challenges and more. The first stop will be on January 6th for a Winter Wonderland in the Aquapolis. Flaunt your most fabulous frigid fashions at the Free Company house before setting out to locate the treasures of the Aquapolis in those chilly Heavansward Zones. This event is accessible to any level 60 player who has completed the Heavansward MSQ including Free Trial players. More details will be posted in the FF14 channel in discord. Feel free to contact Sahja Moshraka in Discord or in game with questions or ideas for future events.

STO
Grebog – STO’s Year in review. We have made some major progress this year on the Federation fleet holdings. All small holdings are 100% complete and we even finished off the starbase. Even with that made a huge dent into the colony, which is also closing in on completion. KDF fleet also went from a gleam in our eyes to having nearly completed the Dilithium mine for all the discounts it awards for progressing projects and pushed the starbase to just a hair under being tier 2.

The fleet has been having lots of fun on Fun Night Thursdays. We have done things from blowing each other up for laughs to helping gear and level up people.

Fleet Action Report had a huge year thanks to the community. We were invited to be part of a special Game Developer event and you all helped us turn the numbers out for the special show. This still blows my mind, that we were even able to participate in that.

It has been a great year and you all have made it that.

GW2
MFN Weekly + Dungeon Nights Monthly continue to be a guild highlight here.

Also the guild opened it’s guild hall! Congratulations.

LOTRO
From Maellung – This year we have had some fun on low level toons. Starting with different race/class combos being available. This also brought an increase in the game in the starter areas. Then with the recent release of Before the Shadow expansion we had fun with a brand new starter zone. Also with Before the Shadow some of us were able to enjoy learning a new skirmish for the first time in many years. Next year we will look at continuing our fun guiding people through the new starter zone and getting the deeds done for the new skirmish. We also are looking at helping people get some group content deeds completed.

GAME NEWS
And with that, I have a question for my co-hosts- what was your gaming highlight this year? And what is your gaming resolution for next year?

From Marcus - AIE’s Destiny 2 clan was reborn this year! We had an amazing expansion released in February. Witch Queen brought so many guardians back to the game. Since then we have been running clan night every Tuesday night at 9pm est. Between Strikes, PVP, gambit, nightfalls, and the occasional dungeon. This has been quite the year for Destiny 2 in AIE!

Coming in 2023…
The next expansion “Lightfall” comes in Feb 2023! Then we will get 4 seasons throughout the year with Story, Raids, Dungeons, and updates to keep you playing!
If you're interested in joining the clan ping Marcus or Wargus! We will get you into the fun!

“May the light provide!”

Merry Christmas!

From Albus - We have had a lot of fun with board gaming, and there's one particularly epic game of King of Tokyo that Face of Case won which stands out in my mind. He rolled just right and pulled off a double win! I'm looking forward to more people joining in next ye...]]>

New World – New expanded zone and content now available and has regenerated some interest in New World in general. Servers are busy and have lots of fun new things to explore.

Fresh start servers are available and a couple people are checking them out but most are sticking with our Valhalla server. For those cases where someone hasn’t logged in for 9+ months and might have been moved off Valhalla, server transfers back to Valhalla may be open again.

WoW
Last Noob Raid of the year due to holidays and the expansion will be November 19th. Noob Raid will resume on January 7, 2023. Dankinia is looking forward to floor tanking a new raid for you all in the new year.

WoW anniversary started today. Together with Winds of Wisdom buff (+50%) and Darkmoon Faire (+10%) and this anniversary buff (+18%) it’s the best time to level any chars. Also some nice gear chances (+transmog)

Dragonflight pre-patch event will be launching on November 15th, so get those characters ready to level and collect gear/items from the event.

WoW – Twitch drops for Dragonflight
As we get ever closer to the launch of Dragonflight, we want to keep the spirit of epic adventure going with Twitch drops, along with a new way for you to support your favorite streamers. There are many opportunities to earn unique rewards, and all roads lead to the Dragon Isles. Here’s what you can expect:

Eligibility

To participate, you must link your Twitch account by visiting https://account.battle.net/connections After you’ve claimed your rewards on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the Battle.net region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where your items will be delivered. It can take up to 24 hours to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming.

SWTOR
Last week we won another Total Galactic War. This time we conquered the planet of Onderon with several of our arms tied behind our backs. It was smooth sailing. Perhaps the galaxy was preparing us for a real fight the next time TGW comes around. We had a conquerors’ party during MFN and prizes were had by all!

We are awaiting the release of 7.2 which Bioware will be talking more about on a livestream this coming Wednesday at 2:30 PM Eastern.

Feast of Prosperity is going on and people are playing in the event for fun and rewards.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– After the pumpkin hunt prizes were passed out, we decided to go back as a group and see if we could find them all. Several of us died to BC’s pet slauterfish, but we managed to find all 21
– We’ve worked on killing bosses for the weekly endeavors and plotting our next group event.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– Rumor has it there is a fishing tournament in the works. Keep you eyes peeled for more details on that.
– We will be exploring the new zone, Galen, for our next MFN on November 12.
– Kini will not be leading MFN on November 25th due to USA’s Thanksgiving holiday. Feel free to group up and fall off of cliffs without her.

Game News:
– Update 36 and the Firesong DLC is now live on PC and will be out on consoles on November 15th.

FFXIV
From Elaine of Shallot / Sahja Moshraka

On November 20th at 4PM Eastern the FF14 Retro Treasure Map group will be back to running Heavensward treasure maps. Because these are level 60 content they are accessible to Free Trial players as well. Anyone who is level 60 and has access to all Heavensward zones is welcome to join. They can be contacted either in discord or in game if anyone has any questions. Clean out your bags and join in as we gleefully gain glamour and gil. If the RNG is in our favor maybe we will reach the last room in the Aquapolis

STO
Fed fleet is still progressing through the colony, with some provisioning projects being added here and there.

KDF fleet is closing in on completion of the dilithium mine. While the Starbase is nearing tier 2.

Fun nights are still on Thursday, but have been moved up an hour to 10pm Eastern to help with people’s schedules.

Fleet Action Report had also shifted its recording time due to schedule changes in real life and is now recorded live on Monday at 9pm Eastern. This Monday we will be delving into more of the TFOs (dungeons for you non-STO mmo’ers) in the game.

GW2
Shadow of the Mad King the Halloween (Oct 18th – Nov 8) event is now running. This drops some excellent (exotic stat settable) gear. As always, AIE Xiphos is there to help if you want to see why GW2 has thrived for a decade. MFN is on Mondays at 9pm ET, dungeons and more nights is the 2nd Friday of each month. Still looking for materials for the guild hall, see @jehdai for details.

LOTRO
Before the Shadow has been pushed back a week. The new release date is November 15th. Once the expansion launches come hang out in voice and in game while we chat about our experience with the great new zones

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

GAME NEWS
Hello everyone, Wotlk is going great, its been a great experience, to do everything again. We have a Raid team, we run 2 nights a week, 10 man, and we have cleared all the current content, Naxx, OS, and EoE(malygos). We are starting on progression on Killing Sarthion with Drakes alive, with the hope of managing to do this with all 3 drakes up, so we can get the mount! Beyond raiding, we usually run at least a few heroics daily, and we are all working on the holiday Meta achievements, so we can get 310 flight next year! 🙂 We worked as a team to get everyone who wanted the Hallowed title, running the Headless horseman daily, and turning each other into various things with Wands. We will continue to run, level alts and in general have fun. This expansion has lived up to everyones expectations so far, as many of us played the original WotLK expansion.

New World

The Brimstone Sands release is live and pretty well received. We have a handful of people logging in to check it out.
If you haven’t logged in in the last 8 months you may have been moved off the AIE Valhalla server and may need to request they move you back. This is part of their effort to reduce server queues and balance populations.

WoW
There is an exp boost happening now so time to level your alts before the new expansion. Phase 1 of the pre-patch is October 25th which will bring system changes such as new talent trees and new race/class combos. Phase 2 is November 15th and will bring the new Dracthyr Evoker Race/class combo with their new starting zone as well as a new dungeon and the primal storm event.

Last Noob Raid of the year due to holidays and the expansion will be November 19th. Noob Raid will resume on January 7, 2023. Dankinia is looking forward to floor tanking a new raid for you all in the new year

WoW Classic
#10forWrath #Akela’sWrath has its 1st 10 man raid Saturday night at 10 server time. We are planning on Obsidian Sanctum with no drakes, and then moving on to Naxx. I will update more tomorrow morning on how it goes!

Update on Akela’s Wrath: Downed Sarth in Obsidian Sanctum with no issues, and rolled to NAXX, cleared the spider wing, the Undead wing, and got 3 of 4 down in the construct wing. Tonight is Last boss in the construct wing, and then the military quarter. Gear was acquired, and fun was had

SWTOR
7.1.1 is here. It brought:
– class balance changes that everyone is still trying out.
– Galactic Season 3, which brings daily and weekly quests for fun and rewards.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– We’ve been running around killing bosses and collecting crow feathers for the Witches Festival
– Our first Tales of Tribute Tournament has ended after 6 weeks of exciting matches over 2 million in gold has been paid out to the players. The tournament ended with DPRoberts and Kini tied for first followed by Newtype, Redstick, Malakyi and Bashirra, Tetsemi, and Darklightwolf

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– BC has decorated their primary residence for the fall season and stashed pumpkins throughout for a fall themed pumpkin hunt. The 10 guild members with the closest guess to how many pumpkins he has hidden will win a halloween themed prize and a gold prize. In order to join in the hunt, visit BC’s primary residence and try to count all the pumpkins you manage to find and then send a discord DM to BC with your guess prior no later than October 31st. For more information, check out the ESO channel in discord.

Game News:
– The Witches Festival is running until Wednesday November 2nd at 10 am EST. There is a 100% exp buff from using the Crow Caller tool that stacks with experience scrolls. You can earn event tickets and loot boxes to earn style pages, motifs, and pet fragments.

FFXIV
Level 90 Map night continues every Saturday at 9:30 eastern. We also have Retro Maps happening every Sunday at 4pm Eastern!

FFXIV’s All Saints Wake is ongoing! Come check out one of FFXIV’s best events following the ongoing story of the Phantom Trope and the Night of Devilry. Can you prevent their dastardly plan and make this All Saint’s Wake merry for both man and voidsent alike? You need to be level 15 but it’s available in the free trial!

Sunday, November 6, at 4PM Eastern the FF14 Retro Treasure Map group will be running Shadowbringers treasure maps. Anyone who is level 80 and has access to all Shadowbringers zones is welcome to join. Sahja Moshraka/Elaine of Shallot can be contacted either in discord or in game if anyone has any questions. Butter up your lovely branch so that RNG will be in our favor as we scour the Dungeons and the shifting Oubliettes of Lyhe Ghiah in search of gil and glam!

STO
Both fleets are moving along on their holdings. KDF just unlocked the transwarp gate at the Starbase

Fun nights are on Thursday at 11pm Eastern.

Fleet Action Report had a lot of fun with the fleet week special event and our special stream. We would like to thank AIE for helping make it successful. This Monday’s episode we are entering the workshop and helping Rmurray put together a Fire-at-will build.

GW2
Shadow of the Mad King the Halloween (Oct 18th – Nov 8) event is now running. This drops some excellent (exotic stat settable) gear. The WvW alliances test has been extended for a week because the beta test achievement (5 captures or defenses) was bugged. As always, AIE Xiphos is there to help if you want to see why GW2 has thrived for a decade. MFN is on Mondays at 9pm ET, dungeons and more nights is the 2nd Friday of each month. Still looking for materials for the guild hall, see @jehdai for details.

The WvW beta has not been extended, but the achievement is still there. Not sure if it is active now, or you have to wait for the next beta.

LOTRO
This week we saw the first look at Before the Shadow expansion on Bullroarer. Some of us are testing stuff on Bullroarer to avoid any spoilers that the new expansion might bring. Before the Shadow is open it is expected to go live on November 8th. Harvestmath is live right now so go check out the haunted burrow at the party tree. Lastly don’t forget to use coupon code FreeQuests2022 by the end of October for some free content.

And with that, let’s get back to Alludra for a Newbie’s view on Guild Wars 2!.

Dual Universe

Dual Universe has launched with typical growing pains that come with a game going into full release. AIE’s current dedicated crew have been hard at work progressing through all the things that must be done early in the game to help insure a long, strong, and stable presence within the game.

Lost Ark

Participation continues to be very low-key. Note that if you are not yet in “Aie Communitas” please contact Durus in discord to arrange a guild move. The overflow guild is intended for alts and any additional expansion but at this stage of the game we can easily have mains all in one guild.

Research is continuing to be set for each guild every week. If you are still playing or looking for help make sure to shout out in the LostArk channel in the public AIE discord. Remember, if you wish to have an application approved, also mention it there with the hashtag: lostarkapp

News for the game:
* The roadmap for the remainder of 2022 has been posted, highlighting new raids and the Reaper and Summoner advanced classes.
https://www.playlostark.com/en-us/news/articles/end-of-2022-roadmap

* There are current Twitch drops available until 24 October:

Kiddie Aggro did something that was stupid funny today.

We broke into 2 m+ groups that did the same dungeon and key size. The goal was to finish the dungeon (timing was not required) before the other team.

However, an impartial 11th person decided who was the ‘imposter’ on each team.

That person’s goal was to slow down the party enough to lose the challenge to the other team while also being subtle enough not to be discovered.

At the end of the run, each team had a quick discussion and then voted on who they thought was the imposter.

It was very fun and funny.

Noob Raid is making their way through Normal Fated in hopes of killing all the bosses for the mount. It’s been challenging but fun to save the lock outs and focus a bit on progression while still explaining the fights and taking our time.

We’re seeing more new and returning guildies as Dragonflight nears. Please make them feel welcome and help answer questions in Guild chat.

WoW Classic
Raids opened in WotLK on Thursday, 10/6, with Naxxramas being cleared on Mankrik in about 1 hour. Akela’s Wrath plans to start raiding on 22 Oct. We are all working toward pre-raid Best in Slot, and running heroic dungeons, working on reputations, and crafting. In general, everything is going great, and WotLK is living up to our expectations!

SWTOR
We are looking forward to 7.1.1 which will bring us Galactic Seasons 3 and Feast of Prosperity. In the meantime, it’s a good time to join one of our Operations teams as some of them have openings. Ask about operations in discord and one of the Ops leaders will respond. For many of the teams, no gear or experience is required.

The Best View in SWTOR contest is back. This is an event where players can submit screenshots of their favorite spots, as long as their favorite spots are on one of the specified planets. Winning screenshots will be made into decorations that all players can then buy for their strongholds.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– We’ve been running around killing world bosses for the current event
– We’ve been playing our weekly Tales of Tribute matches for the AIE tournament and posting our victories and defeats in discord for all to see.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– Dungeons, zone clears, and of course having fun.
– A second ToT tournament is being considered for mid – January and a fishing tournament is being planned.

– The Heroes of High Isle event was a success so don’t forget to collect your rewards from the Crown Store if you own the High Isle chapter. We got new character markings, a new emote, a box of loot that contains more boxes of loot, and the upcoming Firesong DLC for free.
– The bonus challenge for the event to close Vents is still happening, and for every 25% completion towards that goal, the event will be extended by another 2 days. That’s additional time to earn reward boxes and tickets.
– Just an FYI, if you don’t own High Isle yet, it is currently on sale during the event.

Tale of Tribute rankings so far, with 1 week left.
1 – @DPRoberts 12-3
2 – @Kini (Dankinia) [she/her] 11-4
3 – @Newtype72 (Morrogoth) 10-5

FFXIV
(Shaja Moshraka) Elaine of Shalott(e) – October 23rd at 4PM Eastern the FF14 Retro Treasure Map group will be running Stormblood treasure maps. Anyone who is level 70 and has access to all Stormblood zones is welcome to join. Elaine can be contacted either in discord or in game if anyone has any questions. Join us as we search for the Lost Canals, summon opponents from the Shifting Altars and if RNG is truly in our favor perhaps we shall raid the deepest sluice in the Hidden Canals of Uznair and make progress on one the rarest achievements in all of FF14.

Map nights still continue to roll with the merriment and loot. These run weekly on Saturday night, 9:30pm EST. Bringing maps is not required, but highly appreciated.

Lower level map nights also happen every other week. Pay attention to the ffxiv channel in discord will be scheduled next. Big shout out to community member Sahja for organizing this event.

The special 14 hour director’s broadcast has completed, and while there was a lot of zaniness during this time(loporitt guest), we did get a live letter out of it. Mostly showing off the next sub-patch and some other odds and ends. But there was one nugget that is getting us all excited.

Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest is returning to an in-person event!

In North America, on July 28th and July 29 in fabulous Las Vegas, the FFXIV fan fest will return. More details to come when they become available. NA is first, so we’ll get first dibs. (Hint: This is usually when they announce the next expansion too.)

STO
Cryptic Studios is doing a special event called Fleet Week. Starting the 10th and going through the 15th. Fleet Week will cover various topics around the ships of Star Trek, from audio, artwork, form and function, and much, much more. They are bringing in all kinds of special guests to discuss all the various topics, even naval ship analysts and some of the Star Trek Adventures TTRPG gamemasters.

Fleet Action Report has been invited to take part in Fleet Week and will be doing a special event stream on Wednesday the 12th at 12pm Pacific. And we have been given a bunch of codes to give away during the stream. And the codes are not just for pc, we have codes for playstation and xbox as well. Some of the keys we will be giving away even include ships, and we have 1 code for a 10th anniversary 10 legendary ship bundle. We are not the only content creators taking part and not the only ones with codes to give out. So, come support us and also check out the other streams as well.

GW2
New roadmap from Arenanet is up for fall and winter. Highlights include Christmas and Halloween (Oct 18th) events, WvW alliances test week, and the Extra Life charity event. As always, AIE Xiphos is there to help if you want to see why GW2 has thrived for a decade. MFN is on Mondays at 9pm ET, dungeons and more night is the 2nd Friday of each month. Still looking for materials for the guild hall, see @jehdai for details.

And with that, let’s get back to Dux & Maellung and find out what’s going on in LOTRO.

GAME NEWS

https://www.lotro.com/guides/lotro-guide-to-delvings-en

  • Before the Shadow will be released on November 8th
  • Pre-Purchase is open now
  • Two new regions
    • Cardolan:
      • Basically the area South of the Shire and Bree-Land
        • https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Cardolan
          • Tharbad!
          • Southern end of Eregion
            • Eregion was founded by Celebrimbor the grandson of Feanor, so you know there will be trouble.
          • Spanned the river Gwathlo with a large bridge like Osgiliath.
        • Numenor founded Vinyalonde nearby to get access to the forests for lumber
        • Tyrn Gorthad aka detailing the / Southernmost Barrow-Downs
    • Swanfleet
      • https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Swanfleet
        • Once part of Eregion
        • It’s the area between the river Mitheithel and Glanduin, it was devastated by Sauron’s attack in the Second Age
        • Tweaks have been made to the Old Forest
  • It’s part of a major revamp so the zones are 1-32 and have 4 new “epic” quest lines.
    • It’s an entirely new starter zone and can be chosen at character creation
  • New 6-person instance
  • A new skirmish
  • Delving difficulty system with new rewards and challenges
    • Tier 1-10 difficulty system for higher level characters
    • You run a mission at T1 if you finish you get T2 gem.  You can work your way up to T10.
      • If you fail you get back a broken gem for that level. So you can zero in on the difficulty level that fit your play-style and character
      • Success gets you Delving Gems, Delving Writs, and other items to barter for.
        • As LOTRO.com guide says “lest you … delve too greedily…”.
  • Daily quests + tie up wrapper

Freequests2022 is the code

NOMADS
New World – Quiet but uptick with a half dozen players this week as there have been updates and progress on the game

Lost Ark – Quiet, AIE servers consolidated

D&D – a few games running and the channel is fun and active

Diablo III – We are a couple weeks into season 27 for Diablo 3. There are a few of us that regularly run as a group many nights of the week. If you would like to join us or need help with some of the conquests this season, want a toon power leveled or just want to join in the fun let us know in the #diablo channel.

Nomads Servers – Nazrai running a private server and has offered to stand up some fun games. Currently running Empyrion, Ark… could do Rust, Valheim, etc.

Board Games – This Thursday will be our next board game night. All you need is a web browser to play. Come join in on the fun at 7:30PM Central.

Dual Universe – Dual Universe is set to launch on September 27th and AIE will be there from the beginning. Join us to be part of building the civilization that will tame a solar system.

Will you be the first to discover an unknown asteroid full of valuable materials? Or maybe you’ll be the first to see the scenic lake side view on a distant planet. Will you captain a battle cruiser or your own humble hauler? If the only limitation to what you can create is your imagination, will you let your imagination limit you?

Join Catavarie in the Dual Universe channel in discord to discuss all your in game aspirations.

WoW
Alliance Raid Team Hell Froze Over defeated the Jailer, the last boss needed for their Fated Raid achievement awarding Jigglesworth Senior (aka Jellycat) mount.

That is Gustytail rocking those super pointy shoulders.

Lots of folks in Retail WoW have been visiting Classic to relive (or unlive) the original Death Knight starting quest. It’s a great piece of storytelling… and there’s a sweet mount reward there too. Wrath of the Lich King drops Sept 26 so don’t wait.

WoW Classic
Wrath is coming on the 26th
Pre patch is up already, with DK available (starting 55)
Level XP crunch and XP boost, so a great time to level a new character

If you do the starting zone for DK, you get a drake mount in retail

We decided on a name for our #10forWrath raid team, Akela’s Wrath.

SWTOR
The guild recently won yet another Total Galactic War. That means anyone logging into The Black Hole will see our guild name flash before their eyes as the conquerors. And we got a new title for it as well.

7.1.1 is coming up (TBD) and will contain some balance changes. Some early-ish thoughts from the devs have been posted about what they are planning to do. Buffing healers is the best part!

Join us in discord for any question you might have, or if you want to join an Operations Team. And join us on Tuesday nights for MFN!

FFXIV
Fill in anything that comes to mind unless we get notes

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
We’ve been taking part in the Undaunted Event that started last week during MFN by queuing up to run dungeons together.

If you are interested in running dungeons for pledges we have two dungeon groups that occasionally need someone to fill in. Check out the Undaunted Enclave channel in Discord for more information.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
Dungeons, zone clears, and of course having fun.

We’ve been playing our weekly Tales of Tribute matches for the AIE tournament and posting our victories and defeats in discord for all to see.

Update from Kramer – What an exciting week in the tourney we have ties across the board tied for 1st is @Kini (Dankinia) [she/her] and @Newtype72 (Morrogoth) at 3-0 3rd place is @Bashirra and @DPRoberts at 2-1 then in 5th place we have @redstick94 and @Malakyi at 1-2 and in 7th place we have @Darklightwolf and @Tetsemi Lok’vadnod (he/him) at 0-3

STO
The Federation fleet is still processing nicely through the colony projects. I think we are looking good to have two of the tiers done by the end of the year if not sooner. Sometimes the fleet likes to surprise me and knock things out way faster than I expect.

KDF fleet is finalizing the dilithium mine and should have all the media very soon. The Starbase had started completing tier 2 projects for the different branches and so should be able to push for the big tier 2 upgrade soon.

Fun night is every Thursday at 11pm Eastern. We do things from running random TFOs, help people level up, to run missions for gear for a build. If you have a request, we will gladly help you with what you want to do.

Fleet Action Report episode 114 will be recorded live on Monday. In this episode we will be back on our new player challenge characters and covering endeavors. What they are. How to work on them. And what you get out of the endeavor system.

GW2
Dungeons and more night was a great time this month. It looks like in the near future we could have enough at Dungeons and more night to start some strike missions.

LOTRO
Update 33.2 is in its Bullroarer cycle. This update is focused on a rework on the minstrel class and some hopeful positive changes for monster play. There are also some new class options coming for some of the races. There might be an opportunity to have your favorite race/ class combo. Might be time for a new character. Also on August 31st we said goodbye to the Anor legendary server. Make sure, if you have toons on there that you want to keep, to utilize the free character transfer from Anor.

And with that, let’s get onto out Host AMA- and chatroom, if you have any questions, throw them into the channel and we will answer if we have time at the end!

GAME NEWS
Sema: Favorite thing to ever come out of the guild kitchen.

MK- Savory- Handmade croissant dough stuffed with chicken, mushrooms, and a gorgonzola cream sauce.
Sweet- Dark chocolate fig cakes

Tets – Chicken Thingies, see above and Dark Chocolate & Caramel, Pretzel Crust Brownies

Ghomus: I’m GUESSING at least all the hosts play Single Player RPGs on either the console(s) or PC. What is the one game you’ve all put an EMBARRASSING amount of time into?

MK- Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi- because I wanted to unlock Mara Jade

Tets – The Bards Tale on the Commodore 64, the grind is real!

Mew – Fallout

Kini: Favorite ride at Disneyland and why is it your favorite?

MK- Really Kini? Really? You are going to find out this spring! Just kidding, I am a sucker for Pirates and Haunted Mansion because they are timeless. Star Tours because it came out when I was a Star Wars obsessed teen. I also really love Indiana Jones. And Rise of the Resistance, and…. Okay, just take me to Disney!

KJH – Pirates of the Caribbean, the park is hot, the ride is cool, and the music and atmosphere, followed closely by Star Tours & Indiana Jones.

Mew – spaceship earth, dinosaur, rocking rollercoaster

Max: With the tabletop RPG stuff that gets discussed… would @Mkallah (or Tets or Mew) be looking to “DM” one of those sometime soon? If so, what channel will that stream on?

MK- I actually have anxiety about DMing! I am happy to take extensive notes, help create mythology and maps, remind the DM of NPC names, and more, but the idea of DMing makes me anxious.

Tets: Maybe MK and I need to Co-DM, she can do the Lore, I’ll do the Rules 😛

Mew: I likely get too evil for that myself.

Hoots: What’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen in the show notes?

MK- It’s not what I have seen, but what my mind puts in there itself and I somehow READ even though the words don’t make sense!

Tets: Worst thing to read is names you’ve only seen and never heard pronounced, even if you’re familiar with the game. I think STO is infamous for this. Hey MK, it’s Cardassian, not Kardashian 😛

Cataverie: Would you rather fight 1 Max sized Duck or 100 Duck sized Maxxes?

MK- It depends, what time zone are we in. If we are in Central, I forfeit. If it is any other timezone, I will take the 1 Maxsized duck- if I win, that is a lot of duck meat and it is my favourite special occasion food. The 100 duck sized maxxes will just swarm ya!

Tets: One Max sized duck is basically an ostrich, so no, I’ll take my chances with the swarm. I was a decent soccer player.

Mew: Swarm: Lego sets!

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

Boards and Swords – Episodes 200 & 201
Boards & Swords 200 LIVE from High Tide Games: We’ve been doing this for 200 episodes! So we are live on location at High Tide Games in Southern Maryland so real people can groan at our bad jokes. Also, Asmodee is making board games about Squid Game and another new Dune board game is coming. Plus, we get others to tell us bad puns for once as we do a “Pun-off” to give away a ton of prizes! There’s still plenty to give away! Email us with what you think is your best pun and/or related feedback on what we could do better!

Boards & Swords 201 Gen Con 2022: Another on location episode! Next time we’ll be back in the studio but in this episode Chris is on the floor at Gen Con 2022 talking with a bunch of folks about what they’ve got on display. Thanks to Eric Yurko for bantering with Chris in the beginning, and to Edge studios, Colorway Game Labs, and Dire Wolf for talking to us about products and embarrassing themselves with some impromptu jokes!

NOMADS
Dual Universe
Dual Universe is a Sci-Fi voxels based sandbox MMO full of possibilities. Brave the vacuum of deep space to mine precious resources from asteroids. Create powerful spaceships, foreboding fortresses, or megalithic Starbases of your own design. Run trade through pirate infested space between planets. Become a tycoon of industry or a master of the market. Or even lead an army against enemy forces. Dual Universe is launching into its final release on September 27th and AIE will be there.

With this launch will come a wipe, starting all players on a level playing field. So even if you haven’t played during the years long Beta you can still play along with all.

Ask Catavarie any questions you have in the Dual Universe channel under nomads in the Discord.

Come on AIE let’s DU(do) it!

Lost Ark
Lost Ark continues to experience a lull in participation as most are exploring other new game releases. However, weekly tasks are still being set in only the primary guild “Aie Communitas.” Please arrange to move any characters you may still be playing to this primary guild. Applications are being accepted for the guild. Mention your character name and when you apply to Durus in discord and it will be approved.

Please note that with the reduced activity we’ll be retiring the auxiliary guilds of “Aie Honoris” and “Aie Fidelis”, neither of which made it past guild level 3. Any characters active in these guilds are encouraged to drop the guild and apply for “Aie Communitas.” Please contact Durus in discord or make a post to lostark in the AIE discord with the hashtag lostark-app. Keep in touch with updates to the Lost Ark guilds in the AIE discord’s lostark-announce channel.

In game news, this past week saw the release of the “Under the Arkesian Sun” update that features the Maharaka festival, return of Event Guardians, and the Pet Ranch. More details are available at https://www.playlostark.com/en-us/news/articles/under-the-arkesian-sun-release-notes

Empyrion
Also, @Nazrai has set up an Empyrion server for Nomads. Pins are in the nomads channel.

WoW
In game event Trial of Style is coming this week and Gustytail will be doing ad hoc runs for Transmog Glory. Raid Teams are making progress on their Jiggles-worth Sr. (aka jellycat) mounts.

Noob Raid has been doing the Fated raids with the plan to eventually get the mount reward.

WoW Classic
Pre patch for WotLK hits on Tuesday, with all the fun stuff, to include Scourge invasions, and Zombies, the ability to roll and level Death Knights (level 55), new talents, and level xp decreases. WotLK hits on 26 Sep at 6pm server time, and #10forWrath continues to come together, with Shrimpiclese as our Raid leader. We will be raiding on Saturday nights from 10-1 server time, and Sunday night from 10-11:30 for clean up. @Bhock continues to reward new players with 100g for mounts and training. Just pop a note into the WoW classic channel, and ask for an invite. We are usually around most of the time.

SWTOR
We are playing through the new content of 7.1 (Digging Deeper) and entering into the next step of the gear upgrade dance, including the return of moddable gear! You can upgrade your gear through solo activities and group activities, or a mix. It’s really your choice. (There may be spreadsheets involved) Come join us for MFN on Tuesdays where we will do a little of this and a little of that. And if you have questions about how any of it works, hop into discord anytime and ask away.

We have Operations Teams running on most nights of the week. If you want to try this type of larger group game play, this might be for you. Our raid leaders are always on the lookout for alternates and some of our teams are looking for new permanent members.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Killing World Bosses and clearing Skyshards in various zones.
– We’ve been practicing our Tales of Tribute skills and helping each other learn the game in preparation for an upcoming Tales of Tribute tournament hosted by Kraemer.
– If you are interested in running dungeons for pledges we have two dungeon groups that occasionally need someone to fill in. Check out the Undaunted Enclave channel in Discord for more information.

Game or press release news:
– Lost Depths DLC and Update 35 launched last week. It brought two new dungeons, new gear, and some class and skill changes.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
We have an exciting announcement from @kraemer29: Greeting and Salutations to all of you in the great AIE community. My name is Ken and I primarily play in our branch of the Elder Scrolls Online as well as dabble in SWTOR STO and wow.

With ESO update 34 the release of the High Isle Chapter came their first attempt at a card game known as Tales of Tribute. This card game that had the community in an uproar has caught fire and swept into the hearts of all that play the game.

So I have fronted the gold and decided that we shall have our first AIE ToT tournament which will officially start Monday September 5th and run until Monday October 10. I will post the brackets each week on Mondays so everyone can see who they get to play that week as well as the current standings.

Players will have one week Monday thru Sunday to play their match against each other and post a screenshot of the result which will be verified and added to the ongoing tournament standings. To enter this AIE tournament
1 – you must have High Isle Chapter of ESO
2 – Must be a member of AIE Community
3 – have fun
4 – a screenshot of the result of the match must be posted in the channel so wins and loses can be kept track of
5 – you must complete all matches during the 7 day period.
6 – each player will have 3 matches per week
7 – the event will run 6 weeks
8 – each player will have a total of 18 tales of tribute matches against the other tournament players
9 – results will be posted weekly on Mondays with current rankings
10 – I will be placing these funds into the ESO guild bank today to be awarded out to the top 10 finishers in this tournament and I am hoping that our Favorite guild leader Dankinia will be the one you see when the tournaments final standings are listed to get your reward. So with that I open up sign ups as of now August 8 and wish all of you good luck and great card games

I hope you all have fun playing and may the best card shark win or go down fighting

To enter the tournament all you have to do is send a DM to @kraemer29 and let me know your userid for ESO. It is not too late to sign up for the tourney, it starts September 5 and runs till 10/10 and pays out 10 spots we currently have 6 people enrolled just let me know in the channel here and i will get you listed

FFXIV
See Game Notes

STO
Federation colony is more than half way through tier V. We are under 60 projects for two of the branches being done with the third not far behind. Grebog keeps adding in other provision projects and Starbase filler projects depending on the needs of the colony projects and any overlap.

KDF is almost done with the dilithium mine and all the discounts that unlock. The Starbase is closing in on tier 2. Once the dilithium mine is done, Grebog will be adding another smallholding into the rotation of projects.

Fun night is Thursday at 11 pm Eastern. Every third Thursday we do a KDF night.

Fleet Action Report episode 112 will be recorded live on Monday at 11 pm Eastern. This week Nikodas will be doing a deep dive into a special theme build he calls the Ice Princess.

GW2
GW2 is now 10 years old and available on Steam! As part of the Steam launch and 10th anniversary, Arenanet has made a bunch of adjustments to the new player experience making it smoother and faster than before. They have also unlocked the raptor mount if you have at least one expansion. As always, AIE Xiphos is there to help if you want to see why GW2 has thrived for a decade. MFN is on Mondays at 9pm ET, dungeons and more nights is the 2nd Friday of each month. Still looking for materials for the guild hall.

GAME NEWS
Patch 6.2 Buried Memory!

This will be a MSQ spoiler free discussion. If you have not reached 6.2, fear not, as we will not be talking about any of the plot points, themes, characters, locations, encounters, or other items of the MSQ other than the fact that there is more MSQ, it’s great, and you have a new dungeon (common) and a trial to do! (not as common, but still happens on a regular basis)

The MSQ in 6.2 It’s great. You should play it.

The trial has its normal story mode and also an Extreme mode available as well. Successful adventurers in this mode will score you an iLevel 615 weapon.

Besides the MSQ, we have a new raid tier! The 2nd wing of Pandaemonium is now open. The Savage mode of this raid will not unlock until Tuesday, however.

For the non-savage and EX players, we have the next chapter of Tataru’s Grand Adventure. This continues her fun story. Side note, you do need to complete the 24-player Mhach. It’s a fun and neat story.

For those still leveling or new to the game, further changes to the game have been made to the MSQ to allow for a more single player experience. Specifically, the Steps of Faith has been re-worked into a single-player duty.

Oh, and a new feature. Nothing big.

Island Sanctuary
So, go complete the Endwalker base expansion first. No island until you complete it.

But once you do, you get an island. With stuff! And you do things. Island things!

Also neato things.
Unreal! Containment bay something-something, It’s the Sephirot fight from Heavensward fame. Also known as the Powerman 5000 fight.

It’s the same fight as the EX version from heavensward but scaled up to 90.

Board Games
This Thursday night is AIE board game night at 7:30PM Central. All you need is a web browser and a free account at BoardGameArena.com. Come join us for some board game fun.

WoW
Season 4 Launches on Aug 2nd! As Season Three comes to a close, Alliance Raid team “So Let’s Go Skating” killed Heroic Jailer for the Ahead of the Curve achievement and in Mythic Plus dungeons, 11 players in the Alliance led/cross faction group got their Keystone Master achievement. Gusty was one of the final few, thanks to a lot of help. Horde side Raid Team Filthy Casuals has been clearing Normal Sepulcher and is moving on to Heroic.

New details on Dragonflight keep coming out. It’s weird to think that Dragon Riding could make getting from place to place fun, rather than the slow grind to unlock flying that we’ve seen in past expansions. Also we’ll have otter mounts as a reward for a mount collecting achievement and they are adorable.

Noob Raid is being run by Wingclip and Celindre in Dankinia’s absence.

WoW Classic
Wrath of the Lich King is opening September 26th
Currently a 50% XP buff

Soon pre-patch with level XP reduction, new talent trees, spells and a new heroic class (Death Knight)

SWTOR
Legacy of the Sith 7.1 is planned to drop on Remembrance Day, Aug 2nd.

TACO is a Sunday night ops team and we are needing to fill two DPS spots. We run Sunday nights Imp side at 7:30PM Central.

ESO
Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– MFN for the next 2 weeks will be hosted by some of the regular attendees while Kini is out of town.

Game or press release news:
– Lost Depths DLC and Update 35 is available on the PC/MAC PTS now.

STO
Federation: Colony still moving along nicely and closing in on that tier 5. Grebog has also been adding in some provisioning projects to help keep holdings funded and places for you all to earn some fleet marks.

KDF: The main starbase will be done upgrading to tier 1 by the time this is read live. We are also closing in on Tier 3 of the Dilithium mine.

Thursday night fun nights are happening at 11pm. We do all kinds of group activities and if someone has a request, we try to help with those as well.

FFXIV
The 6.2 patch information page has been updated on the Lodestone. Moonfaire items on Shop.
With Data Center Travel up and running, we’d love to have you in our FC on Goblin. Any AIE member or friends thereof are welcome to hang with us on our events, visit our house, ect.

Map nights are still rolling along! Saturday nights at 9:30 pm EST. Come along, get loot, have a great time! Level 90 characters that have all of the zones unlocked are required. Bringing a map is not required but always appreciated.
If you are not 90, there are level 60 group maps with a chance at the loot from those expansions.
And Thursdays at 10pm EST, we are running sprout raids again. We completed all of the legacy 24-player raids (up thru Shadowbringers) and will be looping back around to the Crystal Tower series.

And with that, let’s get back to GustyTail and find out what’s going on in Summer of Love.

GAME NEWS
Summer of Love

Why August 2nd?

Bruce Galloway was an early member of AIE who passed away on August 2, 2007. His character, Milliway, is permanently fixed at the second-highest rank in the guild: Imperator. He was a fan of AIE on a level that cannot be overstated, and a good friend and kind soul to all who knew him.

https://wiki.aie-guild.org/index.php?title=Milliway

Start Aug 2nd, Tuesday

Walk at 9:30pm EDT

The D&D One Shots are full and the DM’s and players have been lively making preparations on their dedicated chat channels – a new thing this year. We’ve got sessions on Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun.

WOW
There is SUMMER OF LOVE coming this week! Remembrance Day starts things off and in WoW we gather Tuesday at 9:30pm Eastern at the Shrine of the Fallen. Other events in WoW include a Safari to collect Battle Pets and toys around Shadowlands and two new events: Snail Races (because we now have snail mounts so of course we should race them) and De Other Side Challenge, where Horde players will create an Alliance alt and Alliance will roll a Horde alt. The idea is to gain new insight, even respect, toward the opposite faction. We’re all AIE now!

WoW Classic
A Summer of Love event:
Skye is proud to announce that his Sister Summer of Love (Summeroflove) is looking for a mate. In true Troll fashion you must earn her hand. Six items will be required to win her hand. Her suiter must be a new level one Troll (no bad habits) and able to take care of her (thus the 6 items). The items will be announced on the night of 31 July 2022. To support her in her new life the family has put a dowry of 1000 gold for the winner of the Great Hunt. First troll to trade me said items get Summer of Love and of course the Gold.

There are 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well, just a few small pets! but it should be fun!

And we are doing the Remembrance day walk from the shrine of the Fallen Warrior to the gates of Orgrimmar. We hope to see you there!

SWTOR
Join us on the guild ship to kick off AIE’s Summer of Love with a trip around the galaxy in remembrance of family, friends and SWTOR stories.

Look forward to seeing you all at 9/8C!

ESO
Remembrance Day celebrations will be hosted by Ken at Dankinia’s primary residence.

FFXIV
Abovan (FC House) – Will use the same procession route as last year.

STO
Grebog (Wolf 359 Memorial)

Guild Wars 2
Dejara (Lion’s Arch – Memorial Wall)

LOTRO
Special Summer of Love SNL(our MFN) coming on Saturday. To give a small spoiler, part will be focused on visiting landmarks that you may have read about. As well as a race with prizes for all. Only requirement is to be out of the intro area. If you need help with getting out of the intro area please let us know and we would be happy to escort you through it.

Lost Ark’s July update is due on the 20th, featuring the new mage class “Acarnist”, a power pass to boost a character to the end of the Punika story and gear level 1302, and an express event to progress more quickly on the road to gear level 1370.

Activity in the guilds is light, and we encourage anyone not in the “Aie Communitas” guild to request an invite to this more progressed guild. Please inquire about transfers Durus or the discord channel #lostark

WoW
There’s lots of excitement and debate over new info on the Dragonflight expansion – along with requests for no spoilers. Customizations for the new Drak-theer race are amazing, and Hogger is among many familiar characters getting makeovers. New options in Alpha, for players, will be able to select body type instead of choosing male or female, and data mined strings also show work on being able to choose voice and pronouns.

In WoW, Season Four is around the corner and Gustytail is among those still pushing for Mythic Keystone Master. Hooves crossed and thanks to everyone who helped their guildies with last minute achievements.

And of course there is Summer of Love! The schedule is up and we’ve got several WoW events, such as Snail racing, a Battle Pet Safari and De Other Side Challenge (roll a toon on the opposite faction.) Join the fun and bring others!

Cross Faction Noob Raid is going strong. For the next 3 weeks while Dankinia is on a much needed vacation Wingclip and Celindre have volunteered to run things.

WoW Classic
A Summer of Love event:

Skye is proud to announce that his Sister Summer of Love (Summeroflove) is looking for a mate. In true Troll fashion you must earn her hand. Six items will be required to win her hand. Her suiter must be a new level one Troll (no bad habits) and able to take care of her (thus the 6 items). The items will be announced on the night of 31 July 2022. To support her in her new life the family has put a dowry of 1000 gold for the winner of the Great Hunt. First troll to trade me said Items gets Summer of Love and of course the Gold.

There are 2nd and third place prizes as well, just a few small pets, but should be fun!

Wrath is coming closer (surely end of August or beginning of September), so we do have an influx of new players coming in to level this summer.

As a reminder, to attract new players for #10ForWrath, we are giving gold (100) to any new player, to make skills, mount and leveling easy.

Sundays and Wednesdays are dungeon days (9-11 EDT), and we all help each other on the 5 man quests and things. We are working on getting 10 to 70 so we can raid Karazhan, and begin to get that #10forWrath synergy going! Our Raid Leader is Shrimpiclese, and we are always ready for new people to come join in the fun of classic!

SWTOR
BC created a scavenger hunt for MFN where everyone used their seeker droids to dig up treasure for fun and prizes. Additionally, we continue to run operations for MFN when we have enough people for it. If you are wondering what classes we need, we can usually get tanks and healers, but oftentimes could use more DPS. It’s entry level raiding and everyone is welcome no matter your experience or gear. Come join us! Especially if you need to add to your supply of Dad jokes.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Killing World bosses and clearing Skyshards in various zones.
– Trials!!! We’ve bravely gone into 12 person content with 10-11 people and were successful in both killing bosses and having fun.
– If you are interested in running dungeons for pledges we have two dungeon groups that occasionally need someone to fill in. Check out the Undaunted Enclave channel in Discord for more information.

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
– MFN for the next 3 weeks will be hosted by some of the regular attendees while Kini is out of town.

Game or press release news:
– Lost Depths DLC and Update 35 is available on the PC/MAC PTS now.

FFXIV
AIE Continues to roll along in FFXIV as we march towards patch 6.2.

For those grinding away in the Crystaline Conflict, the season rewards, which ends at the release in 6.2, will reward all rewards up to the tier you reach. So, you don’t have to worry about blasting past a reward that you want.

Data Center Travel is up and running. Now, we’d love to have you in our FC on Goblin. But we get that other people may belong to other communities or you have an established friend group elsewhere, you can now travel to Goblin for AIE events. Any AIE member or friends thereof are welcome to hang with us on our events, visit our house, ect. We would love to see you at our next event.

Speaking of which, our map nights are still rolling along! Saturday nights at 9:30 pm EST. Come along, get loot, have a great time! Level 90 characters that have all of the zones unlocked are required. Bringing a map is not required but always appreciated.

If you are not 90, be on the lookout for non-level 90 map events. Group maps with a chance at the loot zone are available from level 60 on up.

And Thursdays at 10pm EST, we are going to be running sprout raids again. We completed all of the legacy 24-player raids (up thru Shadowbringers) and will be looping back around to the Crystal Tower series.

Remember, some of these 24-player raids are a pre-requisites for other content. The Crystal Tower series is actually required content now to complete ARR. We’d love to see you there.

STO
The Federation colony is still moving closer and closer to the end of tier 5.

KDF fleet is closing in on finishing the dilithium mines and having tier 1 of the Starbase done.

Thursday night fun night at 11pm. We run patrols, missions, and task force operations, depending on requests and any events going on. We focus on the Federation side except for the third Thursday of the month, then we head out on our KDF captains.

Fleet Action Report just celebrated its second anniversary. You can catch us live on Mondays at 11pm and archived episodes are on YouTube. https://Twitch.tv/grebog

GW2
Arenanet has announced their summer roadmap. Big items include upgrading the original world bosses (more shiny and improved loot), the next season one chapter, and another WvW alliances beta week. MFN on Mondays at 6:30pm pt, Dungeons and more night ifs temporarily moving to be in the same week as SoL. Still taking guild hall donations.

LOTRO
Weatherstock is happening this weekend. Update 33.1 is ‘soon’. Yesterday LOTRO Producer Oleg “Raninia” Brodskiy announced via Twitter that he has left his position at Standing Stone Games.

What is Weatherstock you ask?

Weatherstock is a player run concert of Epic proportions held on the summit of Amon Sul on the Landroval server. The current list is 22 different player bands that will play, in game, in character, for 10-15 minutes each. Where’s Max, Pellel, and the crew? We don’t know, but suspect they might try to get in next year, right Max?
