F.A.R. Grebog’s New Character Challenge Captain level 41 to 49
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP-nrVbGHn4

Grebog spends the night running from 41 to 49 on his new character challenge captain.

WoW
Noob Raid will be checking out Sepulcher of the First Ones in Normal for the 2nd time tonight.

WoW 10.0 – Dragonflight has been announced, with a new 4 zone area, new playable race with it’s own class, a revamped talent tree, dragon riding, and much much more!

WoW Classic
Sunwell (last raid of Burning Crusade) was on PTR, so it will be dropping soon… and the un-nerfed version to start with, so rivers of tears are coming our way, up to the mountaintop of M’uru, the nightmare of all (and true boss of Sunwell).

Nerfed version will come a few weeks/months later, as the un-nerfed is no joke.

Blizzard announced Wrath of the Lich King in 2022 (so surely October or November)

More people are logging in and joining, so we are hopeful to have 10 for Wrath

SWTOR
In SWTOR, we’re looking forward to updating to 7.0.2, which will include some fine tuning on new systems and currencies that were new with 7.0. Notably, caps have been raised on the currencies that are the easiest to get. Some of the currencies that were the biggest bottlenecks have been tweaked to drop slightly more often. A big change for PvPers is that losses in war zones will now count toward weekly targets. This will bring conventional PvP more in line with GSF for making progress on Conquest and Galactic Seasons. This update will come on Tuesday this week!

Also… Max and Sema will be doing this week’s SEPC tonight after the AIE Podcast (8:30ish central). Showing some SW cosplay and other stuff from PAX East, which is still in progress.

FFXIV
We have added another weekly event, Sprout Raid! This event, which runs Thursdays at 10PM EST, will take the members of AIE through the 24-player raids in the game. The first 3 weeks were a resounding success, completing all 3 of the Crystal Tower Raids.

We will be continuing Sprout Raid in the upcoming weeks, with the next raid on April 28th, going into the Void Ark. This is a level 60 Raid, available at the end of the base Heavensward expansion. Hope to see you there.

The other events, mount farms (Fridays) and Map Nights (Saturdays) are still in play and we’d love to see you there as well.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– The last few weeks have been spent taking advantage of the Anniversary event cake and doing the dailies as well as checking out the new Prologue quest for the next Chapter release.
– Trials!!! We’ve bravely gone in to 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:
– Trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFNs and zone clears when we don’t.

See Game Notes

LOST ARK
Activity in Lost Ark continues to be steady with more than 20-30 players logging in each day. Consolidation into the primary, most progressed, guild of Aie Communitas. If you do not yet have a character in this guild please contact Durus or Dethode for more information. At our current growth we should obtain level 8 by next weekend.

The April update and patch have arrived: Battle for the Throne of Chaos. https://www.playlostark.com/en-us/game/releases/throne-of-chaos

* The new continent of South Vern is available to continue the story of Lost Ark.
* A new martial artist class balancing Glaive and Spear weapons between two different stances: the Glavier.
* The Feiton powerpass is available to progress your character quickly to tier 2 and the continent of Feiton.
* A new system, the Ark Pass, was introduced with varying levels from free to two paid tiers of premium and super premium. Each tier offers different types of rewards like many seasonal passes introduced in other games. The current pass is dubbed “Noble Banquet” and lasts from April 21 to July 14, 2022.
* There are new items in the store, including skins, mounts, and pets.
* Other shiny things.

Daily activities in the guild continue. Do not forget to speak up in-game, in the global chat to group with guildies.
If you have any questions, there are always knowledgeable vets lurking in the public AIE discord lostark channel.

GW2
Living world Season 1 Episode one is happening right now. (I am not sure what the release schedule is for the new [old] content). What I do know is that LWS1 will be free for all forever, since you know its super old content. (also keep that in mind while playing through it, the style of storytelling has evolved so much since this was released).

Currently we are working on upgrading the tavern which will allow us to have better guild wide buffs. We are in need of Empty Kegs, or the materials to craft them, (See Pinned post in discord). We also need bottles of Elonian Wine (or the gold to purchase them), and lots of Elder wood planks, Mithril Bars and Varies Leather Squares.

Jehdai is still looking at getting strikes going once more people get through the story. Mandatory Fun Nights are Mondays at

LOTRO
The 15th anniversary event is live and with that Update 33. To celebrate 15 years lotro has some awesome new perks for both free-to-play and VIPs. There are also some limited time account wide gifts to those at least level 2 during the anniversary event to pick up through May 10th. The gifts are for both free-to-play and VIPs. VIPs will get additional account wide gifts.

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

Zul’Aman (10man troll raid) has opened its doors. Come get your Amani War Bear by saving all the prisoners in the time allocated

(Zul’Aman is a catch up raid, for those that don’t have Black Temple and Mount Hijal on farm)

SWTOR
Our Operations teams have two openings. Where’s the Cantina is looking for a DPS on the Republic side on Monday nights at 7:30 Central. TACO is looking for a DPS on the Imperial side on Sunday nights, also at 7:30 Central.

During our MFN on Tuesday nights, we’ve been working toward Conquest and Galactic Seasons targets. Recently, now that a lot of people have reached the new max level of 80, we have added Operations back into the mix. So far the new scaling has worked out pretty well for us.

We’d like to field a team to go on the Public Test Server to check out the new Operations bosses when they become available again. Keep an eye on discord for when that might be.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– We’ve been taking advantage of the Bonus XP events and doing dailies for the gift boxes.
– Trials!!! We’ve bravely gone in to 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:
– Celebrating the 8 year anniversary of ESO by eating cake and doing dailies
– Trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFNs

Destiny 2
The Destiny 2 clan is growing and growing. Now that were settled into the Witch queen and The Season of the Risen the clan is working towards that all powerful pinnacle gear cap. We are having Clan Night Tuesdays at 9pm est.

We work on all the weeklies and help clan members if they need help with something specific.
Hope to see you there Tuesday nights!

Lost Ark
The Lost Ark Guild has progressed to level 7 and will soon be unlocking the maximum guild shop level for purchasing the most advanced materials for character progression. More than 30 players remain active across the guilds, and many members are advancing into Tier 3 and will be rising to the challenge of the Argos raid very soon. Weekly events for completing Guild Tasks, Abyssal dungeons and Saturday evening LAF’N continue. Now that we’ve achieved larger capacity in the first guild, we are attempting move players who do not yet have a character in this level 7 guild so they make take advantage of the benefits offered. Contact Durus or one of the officers to help move your characters!

The game is free to play, and we’ll take all the help we can get finding that darn Ark!

The fleet has unlocked everything it can at the Starbase including the last construction project of upgrading the transwarp gateway. The latest addition in the unlocks are the elite hangar pets at the space equipment vendor. Which means you can pickup the best hangar pets in game now.

Colony is still moving along quite nicely. All the hard work with the holdings is greatly appreciated.

First Contact Day event had started. The rewards is a A600 synth as a combat pet. (If this sounds a bit odd to you, don’t worry it does, to us, as well.)

We have Fleet Fun Night on Thursdays at 11pm Eastern. Nikodas and Grebog host Fleet Action Report live at twitch.tv/grebog every Monday at 11pm Eastern. This next Monday we will be covering the latest event, First Contact Day.

GW2
Currently we are working on upgrading the tavern which will allow us to have better guild wide buffs. We are in need of Empty Kegs, or the materials to craft them, (See Pinned post in discord). We also need bottles of Elonian Wine (or the gold to purchase them), and lots of Elder wood planks, Mithril Bars and Varies Leather Squares.

Jehdai is still looking at getting strikes going once more people get through the story. Mandatory Fun Nights are Mondays at <9:30pm ET>. and dungeons and more happen monthly.

LOTRO
15th Anniversary event runs 4/20-5/11. Update 33 should be dropping around that same time. Update 33 will bring some awesome stuff for free-to-play players.

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

GAME NEWS
FFXIV patch 6.1 THIS WEEK! Tuesday!

Now, there may be spoilers, so let’s get into the spoiler mood…

The Titanic. It sinks.

Darth Vader was indeed Luke’s Father

Maggie shot Mr. Burns

All of Eorzea is saved. Zenos is dead. The Scions have disbanded. The Hydaelyn and Zodiark storyline has concluded and the first steps of the new storyline will be starting on Tuesday.

So, now that we have spoiled it all, how we get there is awesome. One of the most satisfying gaming experiences that we have ever had. Seriously. You owe it to yourself to go play it. Seriously.

Thankfully, the game has resumed the free trial and game sales so if you haven’t played it, you can play it. Free trials are capped at level 60, but do include all content from the base game, the 1st expansion, all of the patch content, and jobs from that expansion. That includes the Dark Knight job, which is so well written, it is considered a preview of the current expansion story themes (which was written by the same person, Natsuko Ishikawa).

On Tuesday, we get the next chapter of the FFXIV story. This is like “phase 2” or what happens after Avenger’s Endgame. Fresh stories. We don’t know much about where it is going to go, but we are sure that it will be awesome.epic, and worth playing.

Quick Hits of new patch features.

More MSQ
Conclusion of the role quests. Required to complete all of the 4 other role questlines in Radz-at-Han.

New Ex Trial, Endsinger.

New story connecting the end of Endwalker and Omega, the Stormblood raid series.

New Unreal Ultima’s Bane – Ultimate Weapon raid, iLevel 560, capping at 565.

Lots of changes to the ARR experience.

MSQ Dungeons revised.

Duty Assist to fill out a group for people that do not wish to use the duty finder

Players are not locked to either, so if you feel like people one day, NPCs the next, you can swap all you want.

Cape Westwind is now a solo trial.

Castrum Meridianum is 4 player with extensive changes to the flow of the dungeon.

Praetorium is now a 4 player dungeon with lots of changes.

Ultima Weapon moved from the dungeon to a 4 player trial, added to the newly imagined MSQ roulette.

Lahabrea will now be a solo duty.

New PvP, Crystalline Conflict

Push the cart, I mean the Crystal!
5v5
Matches are capped at 5 mins in length.
All characters with jobs at level 30 or higher are eligible.
Casual, ranked, and custom matches available.
Rewards are season based, along with the return of the GARO Collaboration

New Alliance Raid
Myths of the Realm Part 1: Aglaia
24-player, matched content
Also great as a gearing catch up mechanic.

New Tribe quests.

New Hildabrand

New Tataru’s Grand Endeavor
More glam plates, with the glamor dresser expansion planned in a future patch.

Mog Station items are able to be “tried on” in your inn room

Player “Adventure Plates”. Like a FFXIV business card, customizable in game and searchable. Player info and customizable portrait.

FC News

Starting up a new event, Sprout Raids!

Thursdays at 10:00pm EST.

We will be cycling through the 24-player raid series. Each raid will be announced in Discord, but will be done in a predictable format.

Usually, these will take 45 mins to an hour to complete.

Pretty straight forward, forgiving raiding experience.

First 3 ARR Alliance Raids are required to continue on to Heavensward.

Great turnout for the first run of this event. Plenty of room for more, so we hope to see you there.

Friday Night Mount Nights! A community grass roots event, starting at 8:30-ish, but the time varies, so pay attention to Discord for exact start times. Go though the game’s EX trials for mount drops. This starts at level 50 and has about 4 mounts per expansion that can be acquired.

Saturday night map nights. Treasure maps will be run at 9:30pm EST. Casual, but highly profitable content. Many times, the map portals will be an item on the Adventure’s Tails book, so a great way to fill out the book for the week as well. Again, bringing a map is not required, but highly appreciated if you do.

Want to help out with maps? The unlock to be able to decipher a map starts in Wineport and can be done in about 5 to 10 mins with cutscenes.

Have other event ideas that you want to run with, or just bounce ideas off of people? Just speak up in the #ffxiv channel in discord! We’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts.

We can’t wait to usher you through your FFXIV experience. Plenty of friendly faces, voices, and characters to play with during your time in FFXIV. Drop on down in the #ffxiv channel, say hello. Even if you are just starting out, we’d love to be part of your journey.

SWTOR
One of our Operations teams, TACO, has room for 1 full time DPS player. They run on the Imperial side on Sunday nights at 8:30 Eastern No experience or gear required. Our other Operations teams are full, but frequently need fill-ins. We have teams running on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. It’s always worth checking on those nights to see if there are openings if you feel the need for a little raiding.

We are still settling into the Legacy of the Sith expansion. With the new content, story skips, gearing tracks and other new features, it’s a lot to process. Feel free to ask questions in the swtor discord channel and join us on Tuesday nights where we make progress together.

Maellung is planning a return of Friday Night Flashpoints

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Public dungeons, hunting world bosses, and clearing zones of Skyshards.
– Trials!!! The last two weeks we’ve bravely gone in to 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:
– Trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFNs
– The new DLC dungeons leading to High Isle come out on March 14th for PC and we will be grouping up to run them for MFNs the week they release.

FFXIV
The FFXIV Chapter has lots of stuff going on and we’d love you to be a part of it.

First off, a reminder that the suspension of new game purchases has been lifted. Furthermore, if you just wanted to check out the game on its free trial, well good news everyone! The free trial has been resumed! So, now you can check out everything that FFXIV has to offer! Come for the adventure, dungeons, and loot, stay for the pretty glamours!

In game, we have a few events to bring up. Starting March 14th, the yearly event “Little Ladies’ Day” starts up. If you happened to be listening to our voices after Tuesday, go to Ul’dah, Steps of Nald and start up the yearly event. It changes from year to year, with new rewards every year. If you happen to be reading the show notes, here is the link -> Little Ladies’ Day 2022 | FINAL FANTASY XIV, The Lodestone. If you want to see the link, check the show notes at aie-guild.org.

Also starting up on Tuesday, the 14th, The Moogle Treasure Trove! Get the Irregular Tomestones from doing various activities in the game, and you can trade them in for some cosmetics that may no longer be available or difficult to get on your own. Again, if you are reading the show notes, here’s the link. Moogle Treasure Trove the Hunt for Scripture | FINAL FANTASY XIV, The Lodestone. (Visit the aie-guild.org to see the link!) This event will run until the launch of patch 6.1. Speaking of which…

Patch 6.1 is on the horizon! While we don’t have an exact date, we do have “mid-April” as an approximate time frame. A whole slew of new things, such as more MSQ, dungeons, trials, Trials (like beast tribes but with a more respectful name), the return of Hildibrand (Abo’s note: YEAAAAAAH!), new Ultimate trial, and likely the most interesting change is the Improvements to the ARR 2.0 quests. Some people just don’t like group content. We get it and totally understand if you want to run completely solo. Now, AIE will be here for you, as we always have been. But, if you just want to log on, do your own thing, and be able to run dungeons as a solo player, the “Trust” system is going to be extended out to the base 2.0 game. This means any dungeons or trials that come up, you can chose to run them with a group of story relevant NPCs similar to the trust system that was started up in Shadowbringers and Endwalker.

There’s much more patch content new to talk about, so hopefully the AIE Podcast will have us on shortly (wink:wink) to talk about it in more detail.

In FC news, we are running multiple events over the week. Map Nights, Saturday nights at 9:30 EST, is still a hit and still has room for you. It’s fun, casual content, with extreme rewards for lining those Gil coffers. We do ask that you have completed the MSQ or at least unlocked all of the zones. You do not need to bring a treasure map, but it is always apricated if you do. If you do bring a map, we are looking for the “Kumbhiraskin” maps, as they are made for a group and has the chance to spawn the bonus portals.

For the FC buffs, remember to activate the Heat of Battle 3 buffs on the weekends. We “cook” up the grade 3 buffs during the week so that we can get that extra bump in XP on the weekends. Any one with the “member” rank or higher can refresh buffs or invite new people to the FC for that matter.

Remember, Discord is usually the best place to get a hold of the FFXIV member of AIE. So come on down, say hello, and we can help you get setup in the exciting adventures of FFXIV!

STO
The fleet is making another big step forward as the Fabricator is upgrading to tier V. This is the final project for the Engineering branch of the Starbase.

Science branch is closing in being able to unlock it’s final tier V project as well. And that will make all sections of the Starbase Tier V.

The colony is still moving along nicely with it’s projects.

STO has started a red alert event. But as this is a short event, likely going to have an announcement of the next event soon. (Probably this week)

We have Fleet Fun night on Thursdays at 11pm Eastern. Nikodas and Grebog host Fleet Action Report live at twitch.tv/grebog every Monday at 11pm Eastern. This next Monday we will be checking back in on the new character challenge we have been running.

GW2
End of dragons is here!

We unlocked the Cantha Guild Hall this past week, and we need your help to upgrade and decorate it. We are looking for people that want to make our guild hall a home by decorating it, and we need help acquiring the materials to upgrade the hall.

Currently we are working on upgrading the tavern which will allow us to have better guild wide buffs. We are in need of Empty Kegs, or the materials to craft them, (See Pinned post in discord). We also need bottles of Elonian Wine (or the gold to purchase them), and lots of Elder wood planks, Mithril Bars and Varies Leather Squares.

Jehdai will be looking at getting strikes going once more people get through the story. Mandatory Fun Nights are Mondays at

LOTRO
Tier 3 of the new raid has arrived in the latest patch. Producer’s letter is expected to be published this week. The spring festival returns on March 17th and runs through April 6th. The spring festival will bring a new pet and some housing decorations. Come join us for some fun in the maze in Bree-land. There is some fun things in the works for the kinship, so stay tuned for some upcoming fun.

LOST ARK
Lost Ark enters into its second month of release. AIE continues to have strong participation within the community. Over 50 members logging in nearly each day, playing characters across four guilds on the NA East Regulus server.

Some members have already achieved Tier 3 content and gear. Between new players and veteran player’s alts, there are daily groups running through daily and weekly group content such as chaos and abyssal dungeons as well as the guardian raids.

Beginning next weekend, on Saturdays from 8PM – midnight Eastern, we’ll be hosting weekly “Fun Nights” with a focus on the Adventure Tome zone completions. You don’t need to show up at 8 or go until midnight, this is just the general window of time most may be on. Explore the world and collect rewards.

If you have any questions, or wish to join AIE in Lost Ark, visit the AIE discord’s Lost Ark category or hop into the voice channels. The usual crew is happy to help and answer any questions you may have.

And with that, let’s get back to Marcus and find out what’s going on in Destiny 2.

GAME NEWS
The witch queen came out on 2/22/22

I was talking with Durus and after talking with him he passed the clan founder title to me… I swear he had his finger on the transfer button! But some awesome things have been happening in game!

THE WITCH QUEEN CAMPAIGN AND CONTENT
The Witch Queen is looking to be one of the biggest expansions we’ve ever seen for Destiny 2, and it’s filled with the kind of content you’d expect from a new Destiny update. There’s a new campaign (now with a Legendary variant), new activities, Savathun’s Throne World destination, a new raid, and more coming over the next few weeks.

THE GLAIVE
The Glaive is a completely new weapon type in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. A cross between a spear, a gun, and a shield, The Glaive is the game’s first first-person melee weapon. It uses Special ammo, and players can fire explosive bolts from its tip. By dealing damage, Guardians activate a special shield that protects the user from damage. There’s at least one Legendary Glaive in the campaign, and a unique Exotic Glaive for each class.
WEAPON CRAFTING
Weapon Crafting is an oft requested feature in the Destiny community, and it’s finally here with The Witch Queen. Players will be able to craft a series of weapons (although some will remain random roll only), selecting specific perks and personalizing their guns for years to come. Bungie will continue to add to the system each season, adding more and more weapons to craft and level up.

VOID 3.0
Void 3.0 is the first Light subclass conversion to the Darkness (Stasis) system. All of the previous Void Supers will still be available, but there is also a host of new Aspects and Fragments for players to check out. Bungie will move the Arc and Solar subclasses to the same system later this year.

GAMBIT CHANGES
Gambit has felt like the forgotten child of the three playlists in Destiny 2, but it’s getting some key upgrades in the new expansion. Invaders should be less frequent and less impactful, and the Primeval phase is going to last much longer, and be nearly impossible to melt.
EXOTICS AND EXOTIC TUNING
Destiny 2’s latest expansion adds 14 new Exotics: six armor pieces, five weapons, and three class-specific Glaives. Bungie’s already revealed most of these Exotics (which you can check out here), but there are a few that we won’t discover for a few days or, potentially, weeks.

BALANCE CHANGES
Every new expansion or season comes with a balance patch. This time around, the changes are mostly focused around some of the abilities in the game, namely the ones in Void 3.0. There’s also a host of weapon archetype changes, but not as many as we saw in the Bungie 30th Anniversary patch a few months ago.

This week at Bungie, it’s all about the Vow of the Disciple World First race.

What a wild week it’s been. It feels like just yesterday we were announcing The Witch Queen, and now we find ourselves on the doorstep of a World First raid race. This is the weekend that many of you have been waiting for, strategically planning your Power gains and grabbing armfuls of snacks from grocery store shelves. In under two days, the race begins. Let’s get you up to speed.

If you’re new to Destiny or have yet to engage in a raid, this is the pinnacle of our endgame content. Players around the world are challenged to compete, decoding devious puzzles while engaging in heavy combat through multiple activity encounters. We’re not just talking a few enemies here and there, but hordes of combatants clawing away at lives and time while players race to the finish line. We expect no different from Vow of the Disciple with multiple teams at the final boss trading attempts at reaching victory.

Now, let’s talk rules. The World First race for Vow of the Disciple will take place in Contest Mode. This is a unique variant of the raid, only offered for the first 24 hours, capping every Guardian at a specific Power level to ensure an even playing field. We announced last week that 1530 Power is your target, as this will be the highest Power your Guardian will perform at against the enemies you face. Here’s a quick bulleted list for all who are in the hunt for the World First win:

Vow of Disciple Race timeline
Start: Saturday, March 5, 10 AM Pacific
End: Sunday, March 6, 10 AM Pacific

Contest Mode:
Contest Mode will cap all players at 20 Power below each encounter of the raid for the full 24 hours of the race.

AIE in Lost Ark

The hotly anticipated MMO ARPG officially launched just over a week ago, on February 11th. It has already made Steam history with over 1.3 million concurrent users in a single day, ranking 2nd only to Public Battlegrounds.

It experienced some launch challenges, as many new MMO titles do, that prevented new players creating characters on servers that friends had been playing on during the 3 day head-start. However, this lasted only a day and new character creation restrictions were rarely in place for long as the server populations have stabilized across the various servers and regions. More information concerning these issues, relevant compensatory gifts offered, and more has been communicated on the game’s official website: https://playlostark.com/

Alea Iacta Est’s presence is on the NA East Region’s Regulus server and we are currently accepting invites to “Aie Fidelis”. The game’s guild feature is unlocked after you acquire your first mount quest reward, and is accessible from the Community Menu in the game’s interface.

Four guilds have been established in response to the initial interest in the game from the AIE Gaming Community in launch. Guild capacities are set initially to 30 members with an increasing cap up to 100 as the guild levels. This cap has been raised to 32 in two guilds which have already achieved Level 2. Guild progression and participation are important components to the growth of players’ characters as well as the guild. Each week, a portion of earned contributions is donated to the guild and a bonus reward of player currency is distributed to players based on their weekly contributions across activities from weekly guild tasks, daily donations or aid given to ongoing research projects, to simply logging in each day.

The plan is to continue increasing the guild capacity of the guilds until such time as they can support the “main” characters of all playing within a single guild or two. We will maintain the other guilds and support their growth for any overflow in interest as well as alt characters that are important to any other character’s progression as many elements are the game are shared across an account’s roster of characters on that server.

Guild event planning is underway and will include meetups for daily and weekly activities, other ongoing systems’ progression such as Adventure Tome completions, Mokoko Seed Hunt nights, and more. Stay tuned in to the AIE public discord server’s Lost Ark game category for more details.

If you are interested in the game and have questions, feel free to visit us in the text and voice channels in discord, or download the free game and join us on NA East Regulus to play with the 50-plus members currently enjoying the world of Arkesia.

Current members, remember to keep up those daily donations to spur guild growth and ask for an invite to the region-wide custom chat channel to connect with players across all four guilds!

WoW
WoW 9.2 launches on Tuesday with a bunch of quality of life improvements, a new daily area, and a raid coming soon (not ™).

WoW Classic – we are looking for a few more people when Wrath comes out. #lookingfor10

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Public dungeons, hunting world bosses, and clearing zones of Skyshards.
– If you are interested in running dungeons for pledges on Monday Nights, 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:
– Trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFNs
– On the 17th the PvP event in ESO started, feel free to post in Discord to coordinate efforts and group up for the event. We won’t be doing this as part of MFN due to the faction requirements and Kini’s dislike of PvP.
– The new DLC dungeons leading to High Isle come out on March 14th for PC and we will be grouping up to run them for MFNs the week they release.

FFXIV
XIV recently had it’s latest live letter! While the last expansion was named “ENDwalker”, it’s far from the end of FFXIV, and the adventure continues! They announced the overall plans for the 6.0 patch cycle, and some highlights include:
1. Graphics update! Higher resolution textures, improved lighting, shadows and more. Will be updated over the entire patch up to 7.0
2. The adventures of Hildibrand returns
3. New Deep Dungeon
4. Scaling difficulty 4-man dungeons, code named “Criterion” Dungeons
5. Further adjustments to the ARR main story quest, including the ability to journey into ARR story dungeons with NPC avatars

And more! The free trial also returns February 22nd, so if you’re curious about FFXIV, hit us up in discord and join us on the Goblin server in the Crystal Data Center.

Weekly guild activities continue with mount farming on Fridays and map night on Saturdays.

The Free Company Workshop is open for business! The current log of the airships, submarines, and FC construction projects are logged in discord in the #workshop-log channel.

If there is something that you would like for us to create or farm up for you in the workshop, you can message an officer in discord to get the request in. Due to the queue of players requesting things, as well as the RNG of the expeditions, it may take some time for your desired item to be delivered.

Some examples of things you could request are housing “skins”, minions, rare crafting materials, and rare orchestration rolls.

STO
The fleet is currently collecting fleet marks for upgrading the Starbase to tier 5. Another huge milestone for the fleet.

The anniversary event still going, which rewards aT6 ship. This is a really nice variety, the Jarok Alliance Carrier. You only have until the 24th to get your needed 20 days of activities, however you can buy out any progress you need with Zen, the in game currency.

The Klingon Recruit event is also still ongoing. You can unlock special rewards and account wide rewards through various tasks you compete while playing. You only have to get the communicator device that tracks progress before March 9th. The tasks you can complete on your own schedule.

They have started the new year long event campaign, which will reward a lockbox ship, 2 T6 100% free ship coupons, or 1,500 lobi. The first event for this is The Borg Resurgence. They have remastered two space and one ground TFO fighting the Borg. You have until March 15th to get 14 days worth of progress. Once complete you get a console that allows you to assimilate an enemy target, three TFO reward boxes with your choice of a specialization point or ultimate tech upgrades, and 25k dilithium.

We have Fleet Fun Night on Thursday at 11pm est, and Nikodas and Grebog host Fleet Action Report live at https://twitch.tv/grebog every Monday at 11pm est. This Monday starts the new player challenge for the show.

GW2
End of Dragons is coming in 8 days, (or the 28th if Jehdai can’t math). If you need an invite into the guild please post your Name dot numbers in discord and tag an officer. (ie Jehdai.5769). You can find this information when you log into the game on the character select screen in the top right hand corner, or in the Contacts and LFG menu in game. Don’t forget you can represent the guild by checking the box next to our guild name (Alea Iacta Est Xiphos) in the guild panel. (100% representation is not a guild requirement, but it is nice to see folks active in the guild).

Stand by for an assault to unlock the new guild hall, Jehdai will be setting this event up shortly after end of dragons launches.

MFN at is Monday’s at 9:30 Eastern. Expect more stuff to happen during this slot when the expansion launches.

Dungeons and more (check discord for timing)

Lots of stuff in the guild bank, please use it.

Boards & Swords #189 – Runescape is going to be a board game? Games from our childhoods
https://boardsandswords.com/blog/bs189

A Batman version of Detective? People shelling out millions for Marvel Zombies, and we talk about those “classic” games that we grew up playing in our childhoods.

Fleet Action Report Ep 83 Best Served Cold
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRQY9FIwYn8

Fleet Action Report, a Star Trek Online video podcast; Nikodas and Grebog intend to finish the Cold War! Ending the threat posed by the Breen to the Deferi people. Will they uncover the reason for this unwarranted attack?

NOMADS
Board game night is still running 1st and 3rd Thursdays off every month. We start at 7:30PM Central and go until about 9:30. We always have room for more to join, and wish that you would come join the fun.

Lost Ark
The AIE Gaming Community has entered into the newly launched NA/EU version of the MMO ARPG: LostArk. It is an MMO that includes popular ARPG elements with millions of players worldwide. Journey through the land of Arkesia, seeking out fragments of the lost ark to put a stop to the demonic invasion that threatens the world.

AIE is currently playing on the NA East Regulus server. Note that character restrictions may be temporarily appearing to help curtail new account creations on heavily populated worlds. They are being lifted periodically as populations stabilize to allow players to join friends on these servers. It may require a game restart for it to accurately reflect on the server list. Should you have one character on the server, these restrictions will not apply to your account. If you do see a queue in excess of two or three thousand, it moves quickly.

Join over 40 members of AIE in the game as they take on dungeons, raids, weekly tradeskill tasks, and much more. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop by the Lost Ark category in the AIE Community Discord.

WoW
In WoW news, Raid Team Where is the Tank got their Ahead of the Curve achievement, defeating the Dark Lady Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Congrats to WITT!

Oh and then there was this: Blizzard announced the long awaited Patch 9.2 will launch on Tuesday, Feb 22 — in just over a week! But wait, there’s more: Future Patch 9.2.5 will bring cross faction dungeons, raids and PvP to WoW. Our Alliance Raid Team, Hell Froze Over has fulfilled their name’s prophecy. There was much rejoicing!

SWTOR
The Wednesday night ops team is looking for a full time dps. We run from 9-11 eastern on the Imp side. No prior ops experience is needed. We run story mode ops.

In Swtor it’s all about that xpac. “Legacy of the Sith” is launching on Tuesday this week (the 15th). If you ask people what they are looking forward to the most, it’s probably the next installment of the story. Many systems are getting an update too. If you’ve been thinking about dipping your toes back into Star Wars: The Old Republic, now is a pretty good time. It won’t matter if you remember how to do things, or not. It’s all new again. If you would be brand new, come check it out too. You’ll be figuring it out with us.

Because this is normally how major updates go, we are predicting smooth sailing and no server restarts! YMMV….

Join us in discord on Tuesday the 15th at 9PM. We’ll be hanging out in voice while we explore the newness. It will be a spoiler free zone, though!

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Public dungeons, hunting world bosses, and clearing zones of Skyshards.
– If you are interested in running dungeons for pledges on Monday Nights, 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:
– Trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFNs
– On the 17th the PvP event in ESO starts, feel free to post in Discord to coordinate efforts and group up for the event. We won’t be doing this as part of MFN due to the faction requirements and Kini’s dislike of PvP.
– The new DLC dungeons leading to High Isle come out on March 14th for PC and we will be grouping up to run them for MFNs the week they release.

STO
Our Fleet Starbase’s shipyard just got upgraded to Tier 5, which is huge! It gives us access to the best fleet ships available.

The anniversary event is also going on, which awards a free T6 ship, and a pretty good one at that, the Jarok Alliance Carrier. It only runs through the 24th and you need 20 days worth of activities, but you can buy out missing progress with Zen, the in-game currency.

The Klingon Recruit event is also happening, which lets you create a new Klingon character and complete special tasks to earn account wide rewards. And while all the rewards take awhile, you only need to get the progress tracking item by Mar 9 which is only a short way into the tutorial.

We have Fleet Fun Night on Thu at 11p est, and Nikodas and Grebog host Fleet Action Report live at https://twitch.tv/grebog every monday at 11p est.

Activity and attendance at both of these as been ticking up, and more are always welcome.

FFXIV

GW2
End of Dragons is coming on 2/28/2022.

Jehdai will be setting up a group night shortly after launch to unlock the new guild hall. Stay tuned to the GW2 discord Channel for scheduling and more information.

Dungeons and More (usually monthly check discord for scheduling)

Come join us in Cantha!

Also the guild bank is full of potentially useful items, please take what you need, if you need something that you can’t withdraw ask an officer to pull it out for you.

LOTRO
Update 32 scheduled to go live on Wednesday. This update brings a new account-based legendary reward system that starts at level 45. If you reach the end of the track there is a repeatable goal for more rewards. New region that will take players from Trollshaws to “Angle of Metheithel”. The new region is free to VIPs and available in the lotro store. All accounts have the benefit of a premium wallet and the gold cap has been lifted for non-VIPs. Finally one of Smaug’s last treasure hoards has been opened and the Dwarves of Erebor have moved to reclaim it! Join them in owning a piece of Middle-earth, in the Great Hall under the mountain (aka new premium housing area). Erebor housing includes features like swimmable gold goins, and life sized chess/checker boards.

And with that, let’s get back to Gusty and find out what’s going on in AIE in World of Warcraft
GAME NEWS
The past two weeks have seen some amazing news in World of Warcraft. Patch 9.2 will launch in just over a week and will bring a new zone: Zereth Mortis, New Raid: Sepulcher of the First Ones, new pets, mounts, transmog —- and players will be able to equip TWO legendary items (note: some restrictions apply.) Our Raid Teams are shaking off the dust and will be looking for new members. Anyone interested please check the Raid Team Recruitment and News channels in Discord! With the new legendaries coming, I plan to organize a guild event to gather mats, because it’s going to take a lot. With the new legendaries coming, I plan to organize a guild event to gather mats, because it’s going to take a lot.

One other thing coming with the patch is a male counterpart to the Warlock succubus pet. The Incubus is unabashedly sexy and I am interested to see the response. When I started playing WoW, I was uncomfortable with the succubus’ behavior but shrugged it off along with the popular joke, “There are no girls in WoW.” Times have changed and the Incubus is part of that.

Moving on – There’s excitement in our Alliance Guild Virtus regarding the cross faction play coming in future Patch 9.2.5. They can’t wait to join Noob Raid on Saturday nights. Virtus is also very active in running Mythic Plus dungeons and thanks to them I’ve actually been enjoying this content. I’d like to encourage Mythic groups on Horde side and cross faction play may be one path toward this.

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

If you have a question or comment about our show, you can email us at podcast@aie-guild.org. You can also follow us on Twitter. The show is at @aiepodcast.

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

    • 4 new zones
    • New Masteries
    • New Legendary Weapons
    • New Strike Missions
    • New Guild Hall – We will be relocating from where we are to this one
  • What you can do before the Expansion drops:
    • AIEx is on Dragonbrand, in the US zone.
      • If you can’t get into DB that is OK, be sure to be in the US zone if you want to play with AIE.
      • The only thing that realm matters for is WvW, and that is scheduled to change in the next year where it goes to a guild based system.
    • Fresh Start
      • You will need both expansions (sold with End of Dragons right now) and I highly recommend grabbing the living world stuff.
        • A lot of story stuff happens in the living world.
        • Just doing them, and the stuff for Return to Dragons will get you a legendary amulet
      • At a minimum this is what I would do to prep for the expansion
        • Be 80 (either do it the long way, or boost)
          • The boosted gear is really good now
        • Start Heart of Thorns
          • Unlock gliding
        • Then start Path of Fire
          • You get the Raptor Mount right away
          • Unlock Canyon jumping for your Raptor
          • Go to the zone up north and get your Bunny, and the zone down south and get your skimmer. (you can get these after you unlock
        • Catch a HoT HP Train in LFG
          • Do the entire run, there will be one HP you can’t get in TD
        • Unlock your first Elite Spec
        • Then do a path of Fire HP train ( or do it solo, or with a friend, the Path of fire ones don’t’ need a big group)
        • Unlock that second spec
        • Do the last episode of Season 4
          • Start Skyscale Grind (this is time gated)
      • Now you can do whatever you want. You will be able to glide, and you will have 3 mounts, plus the skyscale. I would play through the story at this point and work on unlocking my mount masteries.
        • If you want to unlock your 3rd elite spec right away, you will need about 250 HPs.  If you boosted you will have to go back to central tyria to get these.
        • It’s worthwhile to go to each zone and unlock all the way points. You get a gold star next to your name if you explore all of CT.
    • Not a Fresh Start
      • Get your skyscale
      • Finish all of your return to zone Metas to finish the return to dragons meta and get your legendary amulet (this is the cheapest legendary in the game as it only costs time).
      • The community does a lot of cool stuff to keep you busy
        • Infusion trains – Start at pinata in Crystal Oasis at reset and hit all the bosses that drop infusions (this is guild wars 2 endgame here, fashion wars)
        • HP trains on your main and your alt
        • The community runs a Raid Training discord where they train people the raid encounters
          • Raid Academy – ask either myself or Hushwolf for the discord invite (they might not all comply with our community standards, and they aren’t AIE, but it’s an excellent resource to start raiding).
      • Find a legendary item you like and start working on it.
      • Dailies
        • Do 3 of things and get 2 gold and some spirit shards
  • What is AIE doing?
    • We would like to bolster our active numbers
    • We (Jehdai) would like to move our guild hall to Cantha
    • Our MFN is Monday at Time (You’ll see Dejara in Discord)
    • Occasionally Maellung runs a dungeon night
    • I would like to get a dedicated group into Fractals, Raids, and Strikes

Thank you so much for all of that great information! Now, it’s time for this week’s news…

WTOR Escape Pod Cast 412: Getting Gear in 7.0
https://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-412-getting-gear-in-7-0/

Bryant Wood, Bioware Systems Designer, posted some extensive notes on gearing in 7.0 including some new news. We break it down and talk through our plans for gearing up.

Working Class Nerds – Episode 138: Guardian Down Cast!!!

Boards & Swords #188 – Essen is Bought, Tony Hawk the Board Game? (Feat. Beneeta Kaur!)
https://boardsandswords.com/blog/bs188
Now that the holidays are over, are things back to normal? Not entirely, as we have special guest Beneeta Kaur (twitter.com/beneeta_k) on to tell us what she’s been up to recently!

Fleet Action Report – Episode 81 It’s Very Cold in Space part 1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZPYl0Wg_wU

On this episode of Fleet Action Report, a Star Trek Online informational livestream: Nikodas and Grebog are called to defend the Deferi from a group of aggressive aliens. Who are those that would attack the delicate Balance of the Deferi, and can we stop them?

WoW
WITT’s All Monk Fun Run was postponed, as many of the participants are still gearing up. We look forward to seeing what a full raid Touch of Death will do bosses. Muhahahaha! There are plans afoot for an All Paladin run and a repeat of the All Druids in coming weeks. Anyone interested, contact Gustytail.

Gustytail also has a new Guild Challenge! This Wednesday is 02/02/2022, and clearly, the best way to observe this is to WEAR A TUTU — or your best approximation. In game or at home, embrace the silliness and twirl like no one is watching. Then post in pics or it didn’t happen.

Gustytail will be disappointed if @CyberWaif doesn’t have something suitable at the ready.

WoW Classic
Mount Hyjal and Black Temple have opened their doors to the unwary adventurers, piling up corpses sky high on their doorsteps… ah, adventurers and the attraction of new loot !

FFXIV
Map night continues! We’re entering the exciting Excitatron 6000 every Saturday at 9:30 pm eastern. Check the pins in the ffxiv channel for more info.

Our lovely community member Zoot is also running mount farms on Friday at 8pm eastern. Level requirement depends on what is being run, but it’ll generally adapt to whoever wants to come. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never done an extreme trial before! They’re not as hard as the name Extreme might imply.

SWTOR
We are starting to feel the hype for 7.0. It’s just two weeks away. There are all kinds of ideas floating around for how to prepare and what things to do first. If you’d like to join in on that discussion be sure to join us in discord in the swtor channel.

Last week, the guild made a run at winning a planet in Total Galactic War. We fought the good fight, had a lot of fun, and put up more points than we ever have before. Early on in the week, it became clear that really only one other guild was even a challenge for us. We went neck and neck with them for most of the week, but on the weekend, they really poured on the steam and took a commanding lead. Afterwards, their guild leader congratulated us on a battle well fought and shared with us that they had not had more fun in swtor in a long time. It was a good week!

ESO
We’ve spent the last couple of weeks killing world bosses in Clockwork City and Summerset for the Daedric War Celebration so we could earn event tickets for the new pet and other rewards.

Trials are on the agenda on nights we have 12 people online for MFN’s.
We will also be doing our usual zone clears, public dungeon clears, and group delve runs.

At the global reveal live stream they announced the Legacy of the Bretons Year-long Saga and that the next chapter (expansion) is called High Isle.
The first DLC for 2022 is called Ascending the Tide and will come out on March 14th for PC and March 29th for console and kicks off the year long adventure with two new dungeons. The High Isle chapter will be released on June 6th for PC and June 21 for consoles. There are two additional planned DLCs (one dungeon pack and one story zone) that will come out later in the year.
The new chapter will explore the islands of High Isle and Amenos and involves a main story line that ties into the Legacy of the Bretons year-long saga. It brings with it a new in-game collectable card game called Tales of Tribute, a new 12 player trial, two new companions as well as new world events, delves, public dungeons, world bosses, and stand alone quests.
There will also be several updates and quality of life improvements.
Pre-purchases are on sale now and will grant immediate access to a new mount and pet. The pet is only available if you pre-purchase before April 4th. In addition, if you pre-purchase you will get a few additional rewards at launch such as a new costume, a pet, treasure maps, experience scrolls, and a crate.

STO
The fleet is about to take a massive step forward with fleet holdings. (By the time of the podcast) We have started working on unlocking the military tier V upgrade. This is a big project and every little bit will help us get this done.

The reason this is so big is it is the final upgrade for the military tier of the Starbase. It also means we will have access to all the fleet ships, minus one that comes from the colony. And most importantly once complete it will allow us to start working on the Starbase tier V upgrade.

Grebog wants to send a huge thank you all to the fleet for their hard work getting us here and their continued hard work on these projects.

Grebog has been asked what will this mean once we are done with all of these? How can I still get fleet credits? There will still be plenty of ways we can get fleet credits from provisioning projects to temporary boosts projects.

Fleet fun nights are every Thursday at 11pm. We do things from helping people level to running TFOs and event tasks.

Diablo 3
Season 25 “Lords of Hell” is live (12/10/2021)
Anniversary event “Darkening of Tristram” is live as of Jan 3, 2022 and will conclude at the end of the month. Explore the Cathedral, event dungeon, and acquire anniversary rewards.
If you would like an invite to the Clan or Community, please ask in the AIE discord’s nomads channel using #diablo3

Valheim
Valheim server has been shut down for now but may be available in the future if there is more interest in the future. A copy of the world is available and can be downloaded from the location pinned in the Valheim channel.

WoW
WITT Raid Team is doing an ALL DRUID fun run of Sanctum of Domination (Normal difficulty) on Jan 22 at 8pm Eastern. They are also considering All Monk and All Paladin runs. There is a sign up link in the AIE Discord – Raid Team News channel for anyone interested. Gustytail will be there!

Noob Raid had it’s 2nd run of 2022 and Dankinia’s Floor Tanking score increased to 3 deaths. Next week the plan is to skip to the final bosses of Sanctum. We’re coming for you Kel’Thuzad and Sylvanas!

Behind the Curve has room for more raiders. Anyone interested please check the Raidteam Recruitment channel.

WoW Classic
Mount Hijal and Black Temple opening on January 17th.
Still a (half guild) raid group every Saturday evening, going strong

SWTOR
In Game News, the Public Test Server is up for the time being with no announcement about taking it down. That’s good news if you wanted to work toward the Test Server achievements which earn you rewards in game, like a holographic log mount. As far as we know, 7.0 The Legacy of the Sith is still scheduled for release on 2/15/22.

For the guild, December was a cozy month of snowballs and Operations and wookiee hugging. As we roll into the second half of January 2022, though, it’s going to heat up. It’s Total Galactic War! That means that while guildies play SWTOR, the guild accumulates points that could win us a planet. This will be a serious effort and the competition for a planet is steep. If you want to help out there are several things you can do in just a few minutes every day that would add substantially to our point total. Drop by the SWTOR discord channel for specifics. If your character is not in the guild yet, hop in on Sunday or Monday to get in before reset for your points to count. If you character is brand new, not to worry. You will get SUBSTANTIAL points for those early levels. It really is for everyone.

Come join us for some pew pew and some (show off light sabers here) – Vrummmummmmm
FVISH!

FFXIV
Map night has returned! We’re back and hitting up the new treasure dungeon, the Excitatron 6000, every Saturday at 9:30 pm eastern. Check the pins in the ffxiv channel for more info.

Our lovely community member Zoot is also running mount farms on Friday at 8pm eastern. Level requirement depends on what is being run, but it’ll generally adapt to whoever wants to come. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never done EX trials before, unsynced they’re not too hard and we’ll be happy to have you and help you through it!

ESO
MFN’s have resumed after the holiday break. We’ve spend the first two of the year vanquishing world bosses in various zones.

We also jumped to our death and helped a member get the Slaughter Fish achievement.

The Daedric War Celebration runs from January 20th – Feb 1st so our MFN’s will be focused on doing the dailies for the event tickets and killing bosses.

We plan to do more trials on nights we have 12 people online for MFN.

There will be a Global Reveal Event for ESO on January 27th at 12pm PST. They are going to give us a peek at the upcoming Chapter and DLCs that will be released this year. Tuning into the show on Twitch will earn you a new coral crab pet and a crown crate though Twitch drops as long as you have your accounts linked.

STO
This is going to be a big year for the fed fleet. Why? Well, we are closing in on a lot of the Tier V unlocks (highest unlock) for the starbase.

Military: 15 projects to go
Engineering: 38 projects to go
Science: 41 projects to go

While yes, you can only do 1 project every 20 hours (1 day lets say) that means we should be working on the big unlock project for Military in 3 weeks or less. This will then free up resource requirements and hopefully make it more likely we are triggering daily, but even still means 2 months we should have engineering done and 3 months science should be done, if not way sooner.

LOTRO
After a break for the holidays (and Maellung needing to heal in RL) SNL returned this past Saturday. The first fight of the new raid is coming to Bullroarer this week. Treebeard opened up Mines of Moria a couple weeks ago. The ill omens event is being postponed until maybe later this year so they can focus on the rewards. And lastly session play is bugged at the moment and will be fixed in the patch this week.

And with that, let’s talk about the fun and games we had over our break!

GAME NEWS

We bought a house! A large house!

Big thanks to Reka for helping us in the move to the large plot.

Our new home is located in the Lavender Beds, 9th Ward, plot 33.

The new house is on a large plot, so the house is also large. Since it is a large, we get much more real estate to work with, both inside and out. The new house will feature 3 garden plots, all of the crafting stations, and more vendors in the house, such as materia affixers, which we did not have the NPC budget for in the old house.

The additional Garden Plots will help increase the rate that we can churn out the Thavnairian Onion. These items allow you to increase the level cap of your Chocobo Companion by 1. When you cap out, feed it to your bird, and you will be able to continue to level up your companion up to level 20.

As the house starts empty, it will take us some time to settle in and get a full decoration done. So, things are in flux right now in the house and things may move around until we settle in on a housing layout. However, when we do, we plan on having a big AIE home warming party. We are working out the details now. When we have some more defined plans, we will let everyone know via Discord.

Grade 3 Heat of Battle Buffs!

We are now cranking out Grade 3 Heat of Battle buffs. These buffs provide all member a flat 15% bonus to combat XP. Since this is a limited commodity and take 70 hours to make, we will run these on weekends. During the week, we will be running the Grade 2 Heat of Battle Buffs, providing a 10% bonus to Combat XP.

If you see the buffs fall off, from Friday to Sunday, you are welcome to fire off the Heat of Battle 3 and Reduced Rates 2. Reduced Rates drops teleportation costs by 10%. During the week, Monday-Thursday, we run grade 2 of both of those buffs, Heat of Battle 2 and Reduced Rates 2.

Game News
The Endwalker Hype Train continues! The Square Enix dev team has released Live Letter 67, and a very emotional Naoki Yoshida came out to announce a 2-week delay for Endwalker. While delays are never fun, but this will ensure a more polished game that will be now released on December 3rd for pre-orders, December 7th for the general release.

With this change, the Endwalker schedule changes to…

12/3 – Head Start for Pre-Orders
12/7 – Official start for everyone else
12/21 – 6.01 – Pandæmonium, Normal mode. The first raid of Endwalker, and a great debate on how to pronounce ‘æ’.
1/4/22 – 6.05 Pandæmonium Savage. New entry level raid crafting gear introduced.

The live letter also has tons of new announcements on how Endwalker will work. 67 slides worth!

A few quick hits:

5 new series for the role quests! Not required for MSQ this time around. But a bonus quest line if you complete all of them will be made available in Patch 6.1 or later. No level 90 job quests, however.

Crafting and gathering quests lines in Studium, one of the new major areas in Endwalker.

New Treasure Map dungeon, Excitatron 6000 in patch 6.05 (the Savage raid patch). We do lots of treasure maps on Saturdays, so please look forward to the new maps!

Tons of PvP updates, including some small scale casual and ranked PvP with some skill based matchmaking.

Lost of HQ items are being removed. HQ crafts are still in play, however.

Fishing is getting a brand new mini-game interface!

EXP scaling is being re-worked. Important note: due to this change, any progress made towards a level will be reset back to 0 when Endwalker hits due to the EXP scaling.

New Immerse Sound Gamepack will be available. Allows for 360 sound, but does have a one-time cost for the Immerse license. A 14-day demo is available. (Abo’s note: I’ve used this in other games and it is incredibly awesome.)

New housing zone will be available in 6.1. Some FC only wards, some personally only wards. Both will have classic and lottery systems for purchasing the lots.

Got a vinyl record player? Like the Endwalker theme? Now you can get a 7” Vinyl single for 28 bucks on Nov 17th.

Finally, one of our community members and FFXIV players has a new FFXIV podcast!
OldManFranks, one of the long term members of AIE, has a podcast called ‘A Podcast Reborn.” Go ahead and give them a listen, but keep in mind that it can dive into the slight spoiler territory and “adult situations”.

Thank you for all of the great information,folks! Now, before we get into this weeks news, where can the peoples find you?

Fleet Action Report Ep 69 Haters Going to Hate
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqOwGwSW2io

Fleet Action Report, a Star Trek Online informational stream; Nikodas and Grebog are traveling into the realm of hatred. For tonight, it’s a pair of small craft missions they’ll attempt to conquer.

NOMADS
If people are playing Forza Horizon 5, Jehdai has set up an xbox club, (its game specific, we still have the main XBox club, and one for FH4). Just search for AIE in the in game search. (clubs unlock a few levels in)

Diablo 3 season 25 is on the PTR, so that means that we are about 2 weeks away from its start. The new season will have soul shards to pay homage to the 25th anniversary of Diablo.

New World

New World is still in levelling phase. MFN every Thursday, tackling bigger incursions, running around the map.
New patches weekly, fixing the most glaring issues and exploits.
Amazon now talking about consolidating servers, after the initial rush.
Come play this action gorgeous PvPvE MMO, buy once and play forever

WoW
Patch 9.1.5 is Live!

A member of Where Is The Tank (WITT) organized a Mythic Tara-grew that included people from all of our AIE raid teams, and a few pugs. Inspiring teamwork there! They plan to continue Monday nights.

Behind the Curve (BtC) is 4/10 Heroic and making progress on Soulrender (aka Garrosh Nanny).

Kiddie Aggro (KA) and Better Late Than Never (BLTN) did Achievement runs for Glory of the Dominant Raider. It awards (Hand of Hrestimorak) a mount that looks like an armored glove and can play rock, paper, scissors.

Our Alliance side Raid Team Hell Froze Over (HFO) is 3/10 Heroic. Yes, we have an Alliance Guild on Earthen Ring and alts are welcome! No need to tell your main though.

SWTOR
There has been an outpouring of news from BW in the last couple of weeks as they ramp up for the new expansion. There is no release date yet, but they are still saying “Holidays 2021”. At release we will have QoL changes, 5 extra levels, new methods of gearing, new story, a new flashpoint, updated systems, and more. We will also be getting a new Operation a few weeks after the expansion launches.

Like any game studio, BW is introducing some changes that no one asked for, but there are two things coming that people HAVE been asking for: Multi-tagging and the ability to transmog weapons. Multi-tagging will change the shape of how we do World Bosses and will be especially great for us during MFNs. Swtor has long has an extensive and pretty convenient system for changing your character’s outfits, but weapons have always been left out of that picture. Now that we will be able to use quest rewards, special meaning looks, and all kinds of things to transmog our weapons independent of their value as gear.

So, if you always wanted to use Torchy as your blaster pistol and wanted to join in as everyone on a planet kills a World Boss, come join us in SWTOR. Now is the time to be getting those last few levels, cleaning out your inventory, acquiring a few XP boosts and generally just getting ready! Join us in the SWTOR discord channel with any questions or if you just want to chat about all things Star Wars.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
• Last week we took a tour of the new Deadlands zones to grab wayshrines, kill world bosses, and explore.
• 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:
• Our last official MFN of the year will be November 19th due to the holidays. We will resume our falling off cliffs and bridges fun on January 7th 2022
• MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

Game or press release news:
• Historically the New Life event starts the end of December and runs into the first week of January. Due to MFN being on an break for the holidays, we might miss doing this event as a group, but remember you can always reach out in discord and to try to find a guildmate to run stuff with.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

GW2
Seasons of Dragons: Return to Icebrood Saga happening now. Week 3, will unlock Drizzlewood Coast, which uses the games WVW systems on a PVE map). As a reminder logging in during the week will unlock the associated living world chapter for free. If you have been keeping up, we are only a couple weeks away from the legendary amulet reward. (Also as a reminder, these achievements will remain available forever.

Also included in the “Return to” Achievements are awesome rewards for doing strike missions. Strike missions are Raid level bosses that can be easily pugged. So far we have had Bonuses for Shiverpeaks Pass, The Voice and Claw of the fallen, and Whisper of Jormag. The bonus reward is 7 mystic clovers and 8 obsidian shards per strike bonus achievement completed. The 21 bonus clovers that we have been able to earn so far will save 153g (and approximately 39 Spirit Shards) from the cost of crafting a legendary. (Spirit shards are earned from rolling over the experience bar after you max out mastery tracks for a region. You also get a few for doing 3 of the daily tasks).

Next Beta Test is 11/30.
All 9 elite classes will be available with the new siege turtle mount. The siege turtle is a 2 person mount with massive cannons strapped to its back.

Guild Stuff: Next dungeons and more night is November 12th. Monday Fun nights at 8:30 Central Last if you need help with anything in game, don’t hesitate to ask in discord.

And to my right is Tetsemi: (catch phrase here). This week we are joined by special guest Abovan who are here to talk to us about AIE in FFXIV Welcome!

Since we have so much FFXIV news, we are going to talk to our guest first and then do this weeks news!!

GAME NEWS

We bought a house! A large house!

Big thanks to Reka for helping us in the move to the large plot.

Our new home is located in the Lavender Beds, 9th Ward, plot 33.

The new house is on a large plot, so the house is also large. Since it is a large, we get much more real estate to work with, both inside and out. The new house will feature 3 garden plots, all of the crafting stations, and more vendors in the house, such as materia affixers, which we did not have the NPC budget for in the old house.

The additional Garden Plots will help increase the rate that we can churn out the Thavnairian Onion. These items allow you to increase the level cap of your Chocobo Companion by 1. When you cap out, feed it to your bird, and you will be able to continue to level up your companion up to level 20.

As the house starts empty, it will take us some time to settle in and get a full decoration done. So, things are in flux right now in the house and things may move around until we settle in on a housing layout. However, when we do, we plan on having a big AIE home warming party. We are working out the details now. When we have some more defined plans, we will let everyone know via Discord.

Grade 3 Heat of Battle Buffs!

We are now cranking out Grade 3 Heat of Battle buffs. These buffs provide all member a flat 15% bonus to combat XP. Since this is a limited commodity and take 70 hours to make, we will run these on weekends. During the week, we will be running the Grade 2 Heat of Battle Buffs, providing a 10% bonus to Combat XP. If you are leveling up your first job, an alt job, or just playing around with a side project, the XP bonus can really help you out.

Executing the buffs, you don’t have to wait for an officer! Anyone with the member rank (about 30 days in the FC) and above can kick off buffs (as well as invite characters to the FC). If you see the buffs fall off, from Friday to Sunday, you are welcome to fire off the Heat of Battle 3 and Reduced Rates 2. Reduced Rates drops teleportation costs by 10%. During the week, Monday-Thursday, we run grade 2 of both of those buffs, Heat of Battle 2 and Reduced Rates 2.

Game News
The Endwalker Hype Train continues! The Square Enix dev team has released Live Letter 67, and a very emotional Naoki Yoshida came out to announce a 2-week delay for Endwalker. While delays are never fun, but this will ensure a more polished game that will be now released on December 3rd for pre-orders, December 7th for the general release.

With this change, the Endwalker schedule changes to…

12/3 - Head Start for Pre-Orders
12/7 - Official start for everyone else
12/21 - 6.01 - Pandæmonium, Normal mode. The first raid of Endwalker, and a great debate on how to pronounce ‘æ’.
1/4/22 - 6.05 Pandæmonium Savage. New entry level raid crafting gear introduced.

Hey AIE folks, I love transmog both in game and RL. I would love to see what others are doing for Halloween. Please post in the #pics-or-it-didnt-happen channel on AIE Discord. For WoW players, I would especially love to see pics of your Headless Horseman mount, helm and/or sword (as proof they actually exist). Other games – show us your rarest and best loved looks! Starring your way, New World.

New World
New World is quite a success. We had to open a second Company and move inactive to it, as we reached the cap earlier this week.

On Tuesday, we had our first MFN Trial, running around the map, fighting mid-level corrupted invasions and closing their portals.

On Thursday, we had our second MFN Trial, clearing a Pirate citadel, teaching who YARRs !

Voting was up about MFN evening selection. It was a close vote, but Thursday beat Wednesday.
Next MFN will be Thursday at 08:00 PM EST, for 2 to 3 hours, doing activities that allow players to join or leave at any time.

If anyone wants to run a Wednesday later MFN, anyone can schedule and organize.
See you in game !

Raid Team Roundup

Congrats to Kiddie Aggro for 10/10 Heroic Sanctum of Domination, our 2nd raid team with Ahead of the Curve Achievement.

The Filthy Casuals are going on break until 9.2 after completing 10/10 Normal Sanctum.

Behind the Curve is 4/10 Heroic Sanctum and farming Normal to gear up some new members.

Where Is The Tank /WiTT (alts) and DoA continue to farm Normal Sanctum, with several proceeding directly to Noob Raid. Prepare for trouble, make it double.

WiTT (mains) is 8/10 Heroic with only Fatescribe (aka Wheel of Misfortune) and Sylvanas left to go.

WoW Game News

Upcoming Extended Maintenance for US Realms – Tuesday 10/26 2 am to 10 am PDT

Patch 9.1.5 has a release date? I mean, it has a release date! November 2nd.

“It has a lot of quality of life improvements and some cool new features that we wouldn’t usually expect in an x.5 patch, including easy Covenant swapping, new character customization, Legion Timewalking, the return of the Mage Tower, legacy loot for BFA raids, and a whole lot more.” (Thanks to Blizzard Watch for the summary – https://blizzardwatch.com/2021/10/21/patch-9-1-5-release-date/)

The Mage Tower will not release until December 7th when Legion Timewalking comes around. It will be available for two weeks (twooo weeeeks). You won’t be able to collect transmog that was available in Legion, but there are new Tier 20 Armor recolors and a mount to be obtained.

Official Patch Notes – https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/23731242/915-content-update-notes

FFXIV
We are now less than one month away from Endwalker and the hype is real!

Remember, Endwalker starts for early access for pre-orders on November 19th. If you pre-order any version, you get an earring with a 30% bonus to all xp earned. Also, the stats on the earring scale with you, as you level, and change depending on what job you are on. This also includes crafting classes.

If you are not the pre-order type, Endwalker will start on November 23rd.

Even with all of the trailers, announcements, live letters, and media days, there still more that they have yet to announce, so on November 5th at 10pm EST, 7 PM PST and 4 rocks past the 5th sand dune in Arizona time, we have Live Letter LXVII (67). Here, all that is listed is “New Endwalker Information’ and “Miscellaneous Updates” on the agenda, so we do expect to hear new info on the expansion.

In the Free Company, we are working on creating Grade 3 XP buffs for everyone. Here’s how you can help.

First off, we need to create the aether wheel. This is created in the workshop, which is accessible in the FC house, main floor, back left corner. In there, there is the workshop and in the middle, we have our current project, which will be the Grade 3 Heat of Battle aether wheel.

You can donate the items to complete the craft. An officer will need to pull it out of the crafting station and start up a new one. From there, we need to place it in the aether wheel stand, where it needs to “cook” for 70 hours. When the time comes, we will pull out the charged aether wheel out and add it to our buff inventory.

Come Friday and Saturday, we will want to activate the following buffs.

Heat of Battle 3
Reduced Rates 2

This will allow everyone in the Free Company to get a 15% bonus to all combat XP generated, as opposed to the 10% we would get from Heat of Battle 2.

Also, remember that anyone can refresh the buffs. If you see the buffs are down, go into the FC panel and reactivate them. Just remember to use the grade 3 buffs on Friday and Saturday so that we can get an extra bonus for the weekends.

It’s still not too late to jump into your Final Fantasy XIV adventure! Come on down to the ffxiv channel in discord and we can get you started.

SWTOR
Bioware has published a cosplay kit for the very popular character, Lana Beniko. It includes high resolution images of her and of her unmistakable gear, as well as reference materials and color palettes. In case you have yet to meet Lana, here are a few words about her: “With her serene and considerate manner, one might mistake Lana Beniko for a Jedi. She is, however, a Sith Lord of great wisdom and strength who has impressed many of her peers in a considerably short period of time with her keen insights into the nature of the Force.” This cosplay kit is intended to be the first of many. Malgus, anyone?

The Feast of Prosperity and Double XP are still going on. Come join us Tuesday night for MFN where we will likely be killing an event boss or two, making some currency, and piling on the XP.

ESO
See Game Notes

STO
Current Halloween Event, Fall of the Old Ones, is still ongoing.

The Mirror Guardian Cruiser will be available in the Zen Store starting 10/28.

Fleet Action Report is looking for 2 volunteers to help with the 10/25 show at 11pm Eastern. This will be to run a few Ground TFOs.

LOTRO
The new expansion “The Fate of Gundabad” will be released on November 10th. Also the long awaited curator vendor will be in Middle Earth from Oct.. 25th- Nov. 1st. If you have not taken advantage of the quest pack redeem code lotroquests2021 you have until the end of November to do so. Also most expansions are on sale in game for 99 LP. You can also go to https://lotro.com/getready for more details. Lastly, if you need any assistance with the new legendary Items we can walk you through it and answer any questions in the lotro channel.

GW2
Game News: Beta Week starts Tuesday. Try out the last 3 elite specializations for Thief, Engineer and Ranger. Week 2 for Return to Icebrood Saga also starts Tuesday. (Don’t forget to log in each week to get these chapters for free). Halloween Event is still ongoing, I believe it ends on November 9th.

There is a bonus to do a strike mission (5 to 10 man content) in this weeks Return to Bonus Achievement set. The reward is 7 mystic clovers for a piece of content that takes maybe 5 minutes. if that. You need 77 Mystic Clovers to make a Legendary weapon, and they are either absurdly expensive to craft, or limited to PVP/WVW reward track end rewards, or the 7 you can get for logging in for 30 days. The best way to get the strike mission done, is to watch LFG. Contacts and LFG button the upper left (default key Y), Second tab down in that window (LFG), then Strike Missions (middle bottom of the list), pick looking for more, and Shiverpeaks is what you are looking for.

Jehdai is expecting to see this bonus pop up with each chapters set of Return to achievements. Most of the strikes are pretty easy, and are supposed to be an introduction to raids.

Guild stuff: Mandatory fun Nights happen on Monday’s at 8:30 Central (the only real time zone), Maellung hosts dungeon nights (best to check discord for these). last, if you need help with ANYTHING in game, reach out in our discord channel.

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

GAME NEWS
Before I dive into ESO I wanted to mention that Noob Raid will be taking our annual break for the Winter. Saturday, November 20th will be our last Noob Raid of 2021 and we will dive back into Normal Sanctum on January 8th. Also, at the request of Gusty, for the October 30th Halloween edition of Noob Raid the group will be picking up the “bad” anima powers and failing gloriously to kill Taragrue. in ESO MFN might also be on break during this time and I’ll keep you posted if that is the case.

Lately MFN’s in ESO have been event focused. With the Witches Festival going on we are running around dressed as skeletons, killing bosses for plunder skulls, collecting feathers, and finding places to jump off of. The event runs until Tuesday November 2nd at 10am EDT. You earn 2 event tickets for the first boss kill of the day and the plunder skulls can contain various “repulsive rewards” such as style items, furnishings and recipes, creep things, and fragments for a new pet called the Witch-Tamed Bear Dog. Don’t forget that using the whistle grants you a 100% exp boost that stacks with scrolls and drinking from the cauldron transforms you into a spooky undead skeleton. Also the first two fragments for the Doomchar Plateau are available in the event shop with the rest to be available later this year.

Deadlands, the next DLC zone, launches November 1st. It has new delves, new bosses, and new quests that continue the Gates of Oblivion story line. As is traditional, for our MFN that week we will explore the new area and see what adventures await us as well as find a high point for me to lead people off of.

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

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.

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
