Game or press release news:
– Firesong will be out November 1st on PC and November 15th for consoles and will expand on the ongoing Legacy of the Bretons story line with a new island to explore and the conclusion of the year long adventure.
– Firesong will also bring out a new ToT patron, the Druid King, that should be fun to try out.

FFXIV
Map night continues every Saturday night at 9:30 pm eastern. They would like you to join them for treasure and rabbit themed monster arenas!

From Elaine of Shallot / Sahja Moshraka
On October 9th at 4PM Eastern the FF14 Retro Treasure Map group will be 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. Elaine can be contacted either in discord or in game if anyone has any questions.

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!

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

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.

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

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?

Fleet Action Report Ep 103 Farming Marky Marks
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP9OVCVlyp0

In this episode of Fleet Action Report, Grebog and Nikodas are continuing to work on their budget builds for their New Player Challenge. We run the mission for the Bajor Defense Deflector and then move on to Task Force Operations (TFO) for getting some marks.

WoW
WoW players are busy making to do/wish lists with the announcement that Shadowlands Season Four will arrive Aug 2nd. Huzzah for long awaited new content, but geeez Blizz, don’t you know AIE has other plans that week? Alliance Raid Team, So Let’s Go Skating is racing to down Heroic Jailer for the Ahead of the Curve Achievement (GO SLUGS!) while Gustyail and many others are running Mythic Plus dungeons to become Keystone Masters

AIE Virtus displaying their Waste Warped Deathwalker — the Mythic Plus Dungeon achievement mount.

WoW Classic
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.

Also, Blizzard announced they will be providing a 50% EXP buff before and during the Wrath pre-event. No announced date for that to start yet, but keep an eye out for it.

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
Flashpoint Fridays update for July: Normally these are on the first Friday of the month, but in July it will on the 15th.

We have Operations Teams running on most nights of the week. If you want to try this type of larger group game play, just hop into discord and ask about it. Our raid leaders are always on the lookout for permanent members and alternates.

MFNs continue to run on Tuesdays nights. BC runs a mix of events, including operations, so there is always something fun to do. In many cases your character can be any level as long as you have your personal ship so that we can summon you. No gear level or experience required.

Also, coming this Tuesday, July 5th, there will be a MFN treasure hunt in SWTOR, check the #swtor channel in AIE Discord for more info on what’s planned.

FFXIV
FFXIV continues to drum out the new content.
Hildebrand and relic
Omega continuation
Tataru
Amelieance crafting
Patch 6.18 will be deployed this Tuesday. There will be a 24-hour maintenance on Monday. Cross data center server visits. We will see you on Tuesday for path 6.18 in FFXIV.

Late August, we will be getting patch 6.2. What are we getting? New MSQ, new Raid Tier, new gathering Tribe quests, More details on animal crossing island adventures -let your minions run free -farming and animal raising , Variant Dungeons (the easier ones), Criterion Dungeons (difficult dungeons with 2 levels of difficulty), PvP Series 2 (Series is new rewards, season is just for ranking progression), and the best features of all, the glamour dresser in being increased from 400 to 800 items.
For AIE News…

AIE Map Nights, Saturday at 9:30pm EST, are still a popular event. Be a level 90, have access to all of the zones, and loot, prizes, and general merriment will be your reward. We use Level 90, 8-player maps. You do not have to bring a map to join, but if you do wish to bring one for the group to use, we are looking for the Timeworn Kumbhiraskin Treasure Map.
But for those that are not level 90, we are now running non-90 map nights, thanks to Sahja, we will have a group that will be doing other maps found within the previous expansions. Check the AIE discord in the
ffxiv channel to confirm which level maps we will be focusing on that week.

AIE is also hosting Sprout Raids on Thursday nights at 10pm EST. These raids will vary in levels, as we go through all of the 24-player raids in each expansion. So far, we have completed all of the Crystal Tower and the Shadow of Mhach raid series. Currently, we are working on the Dark Apocalypse raid series. Once this series wraps up, we will have the new Endwalker alliance raid to do, and then will wrap back around to the Crystal Tower raid series again.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– There is an event in game right now where you earn reward boxes of loot for doing things in a group with guildmates so this past Friday was spent roaming though Craglorn killing all the Worldbosses.
– 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:
– Next Friday’s MFN will be spent once again killing world bosses as group so we can earn more reward boxes during the event.

STO
The Federation colony is still moving along well towards Tier 5.

KDF is closing in on Tier 3 of the dilithium and has started some starbase work.

Thursday night fun night is still happening. We start at 11pm Eastern. And fun nights will be Fed based except for the 3rd Thursday of the month, which we will then explore with our Klingon Defense Force captains.

And as always, catch Fleet Action Report on Mondays at 11pm. this Monday will be heading back to Risa as the summer event has started. twitch.tv/grebog

GW2
ArenaNet just pushed a balance patch the other day. Lots of changes, so there is a good chance that your class received some tender loving care from the devs. Raids now have an emboldened Mode, this is similar to the buffs you get in wow when you wipe on a boss. This buff will be active on one raid wing each week, and players will have the option to disable it. Strike gold rewards have been rebalanced to make them more, well, rewarding.

Guild stuff is the same as it always is. Mondays, and Dungeons and more. Also still taking donations for the guild hall

The People Are The Studio – Behind The Games chat with Hector Padilla of IO Interactive

https://www.newoverlords.com/the-people-are-the-studio-behind-the-games-chat-with-hector-padilla-of-io-interactive/

Many game studios are having a moment right now where they need scale, and to learn to be better, more professional companies. IO Interactive has this figured out with leaders like Hector Padilla, a people manager at IO Interactive. IOI is the game studio that makes the Hitman series and soon a new 007 game. Hector focuses on making teams work together while developing all these great games. We talk here about an inside view of IO Interactive and Hitman, how to run a studio like a mature company, how to connect teams and people, and a little about the future of gaming. Thanks Hector and IOI!

We talked to him about his wilderness trip seeking sounds, how the sound design was done for Far Cry 6, the difference between sound design for movies and games, and what Eduardo personally was able to bring to the story and themes of the game.

NOMADS
New World
The server merge to Valhalla went smoothly a few weeks back and things are mostly quiet as the community waits for updates and new content to shake things up. We have a handful of players that log in a couple times a week though so if anyone did want to try it out or get something going they can post up in the channel and rally the troops.

Diablo Immortal
The mobile version is out, and is free to play, but is definitely a gacha game, if you value time over money. It takes up 12.5 gb on the iPhone. The PC Version is in Beta and is a direct mobile port. We have created a Clan (max 100 members) and it is named Alea Iacta Est Diabolus. You must be level 30 to join a Clan.

WoW
Noob Raid’s first cross faction raid happened and was a ton of fun. It was nice to see some former horde members return. We killed 5 bosses which is 2 more than we’ve ever done in the past.

Team Kiddie Aggro defeated Heroic Jailer in the Sep-ull-cher of the First Ones. They are the first AIE Raid team to get Ahead of the Curve achievement!

WoW Classic
Limited Promotion for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King ! Come join us and any new player will get 100g, for mount, skills and an easy start.

Dungeons and more runs on Sunday and Wednesday nights, from 9-11 EDT. Please feel free to use whatever is in the guild bank for leveling professions and things like that. Welcome to all the returning players for #10forWrath

SWTOR
MFNs continue to run on Tuesdays nights. This week we are targeting an operation. Stay tuned to hear about which one!

The Public Test Server is back up, and we are hoping to field a team to go in and take a look at the new Operation.

Looking for DPSers on two of our Operations teams – Sunday Nights imp side and Monday nights pub side.

Check out Flashpoint Fridays on the first Friday of each month. Look for Maellung!

Maellung, how about a report from June’s Flashpoint Friday?

FFXIV
AIE Map Nights, Saturday at 9:30pm EST, are still a popular event. If you are level 90, have access to all of the zones, then loot, prizes, and general merriment will be your reward. We use Level 90, 8-player maps. You do not have to bring a map to join, but if you do wish to bring one for the group to use, we are looking for the Timeworn Kumbhiraskin Treasure Map.

But for those that are not level 90, we are now running non-90 map nights, thanks to Sahja, we will have a group that will be doing level 60 maps found within the Heavensward expansion. On Sundays at 4pm EST, we will be running ‘Timeworn Dragonskin Maps’, which are the 8 player version and have a chance to open up the portals to ‘The Aquapolis’ bonus zone. Since this is level 60 content, this is included in the free trial, so if you have a level 60 character, but haven’t invested any money into the game yet, you are able to join in on the fun and prizes! Super thanks to Sahja for running this event. Join us in 2 weeks for Stormblood and Gazelleskin maps.

AIE is also hosting Sprout Raids on Thursday nights at 10pm EST. These raids will vary in levels, as we go through all of the 24-player raids in each expansion. So far, we have completed all of the Crystal Tower and the Shadow of Mhach raid series. Currently, we are working on the Rabanastre raid series. We have completed The Royal City of Rabanastre and The Ridorana Lighthouse over the past few weeks. We will be moving over to the Obonne Monastery for the final raid of the Rabanastre raid series.

Make It Rain! The Annual Gold Saucer event, “Make it Rain” is back and is providing an extra 50% bonus to all MGP (Manderville Gold Saucer Points. The S in Saucer is silent, I guess.) This bonus applies to all MGP mini-games, such as the Cactpot, Mini-Cactpot, Fashion Contest, and the little skill mini-games in the Gold Saucer or in the AIE FC house. To celebrate the event, we will be running the “Jackpot” buff to increase the bonus by another 10%! To top it off, there’s a new seasonal questline that will reward some new emotes that will be sure to be a hit.
Other in-game news, Patch 6.15 is right around the corner. June 7th! A few highlights in this small update to the 6.1 patch…
• Tataru’s Grand Endeavor
• Omega: Beyond the Rift (Probably have to complete the Omega raid series, found in Stormblood to start)
• Arkasodara Tribal Quests
• Custom Deliveries: Ameliance

And…
The return of Eorzea’s Greatest Inspector…

• Somehow Further Hildibrand Adventures!

There’s plenty of stuff to see and do in FFXIV! We hope to see you in Eorzea soon!

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
– Trials!!! We’ve bravely gone into 12 person content with 10-11 people and were successful in both killing bosses and having fun.
– We ventured in to Cloudrest for the first time and managed to successfully clear it
– 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:
– High Isle comes out June 6th for PC/Mac so for MFN this coming Friday we will spend time exploring the new zone for Skyshards, Wayshrines, and Points of interest.

STO
The Federation colony is still progressing through the final tier, Tier 5.

KDF side dilithium mine is counting down the upgrade for Tier 2 and had the Tier 2 discount project queued up to start as soon as the other finishes.

Thursday nights at 11pm EDT is MFN.

GW2
Living World Season 1: Sky Pirates is live. Come and play the second chapter of the first living world expansion. Living World Season 1 will be free forever, so don’t worry if you can’t log in right now.

MFN is mondays at 9:30 pm EDT

Dungeons and More is this Friday, June 10th at 9 pm – 11pm EDT

Also we are still looking for donations of materials for the guild hall. Please see the pinned posts in discord for more information on what we need, and how to donate.

LOTRO
See Game News

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

GAME NEWS
MacOS client deprecated = 3/27
15th Anniv = 4/15
Update 33 “Yondershire” = 4/20
Hobnanigans ends June 5th
What does the future hold: post Great Wedding Epic Questline: Scouring of the Shire

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 425: World Boss Multi-Tag
https://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-425-world-boss-multi-tag/

We like to hunt world bosses and with multi-tag and fast spawn things are a little different in the 7.0 era.

Also, check out https://www.newoverlords.com/ for another new podcast called Behind the Games where Jeff (Max) and Sema interview people working in the game industry and give you a glimpse behind the scenes about what’s going on in game development and marketing.

Fleet Action Report – Episode 97 Heart of the Storm
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImGmsUGQNTI

In this episode of Fleet Action Report; Nikodas and Grebog are taking the fight to the Terran Empire. It’s into the Heart of the Storm event where we’ll be taking on 2 new episodes and 1 new TFO.

Boards & Swords 196 – A Final Fantasy TCG? Pirate Pathfinder Board Game, Out of Context Comments
https://boardsandswords.com/blog/bs196

A better look at that Runescape board game, Embracer Group buys up more IPs, did you know there’s a Final Fantasy TCG? All this plus we take a look at some out of context comments made at Warhammer Fest!

NOMADS
New World

The server merge to Valhalla went smoothly a few weeks back and things are mostly quiet as the community waits for updates and new content to shake things up. We have a handful of players that log in a couple times a week though so if anyone did want to try it out or get something going they can post up in the channel and rally the troops.

Star Citizen
Free fly for Star Citizen this week for invictus week. See the Nomads channel in discord for details, a pinned post for referral codes.

As always if anyone wants to do some multi crew stuff they can reach out to Jehdai.

Destiny 2
With the new Season coming this Tuesday. The clan had a ton of fun for Clan Night on Tuesday.
This week will be an off night for clan night as we start the new story content and get into the BRAND NEW DUNGEON!!

Look for the new trailer coming this Tuesday morning!!

Division 2
The Division 2 has seen a resurgence with the latest title update 15, and new Season 9: Hidden Alliance season content. New gear, systems, and a game mode: Countdown have drawn a handful of AIE clanmates back into the game.
https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/the-division/the-division-2/expansion/warlords-of-new-york/season-9

Lost Ark
The game continues to receive new content, the May update included the new Destroyer class. Many of the guild members are now solidly into tier 3 and completing end-game raid content.
Please see the game’s discord channels if you’d like to know more!

WoW
Kiddie Aggro defeated the heroic Ry-gelon in Sepulcher of the First Ones and is currently in an epic battle to rid the Shadowlands of the Jailer before he destroys all of creation.

Alliance Team Hell Froze Over began Heroic Sepulcher this week, downing 2 bosses. Their progression team So Let’s Go Skating has Heroic Halon-druss (aka Murder Crab) on the menu tonight. Oh, last minute update, they are currently enjoying those crab cakes!!!

Noob Raid took out one boss in Sepulcher and the weekly world boss. A few more experienced raiders would make a big difference to our scrappy Guild runs. Oh and in case you are wondering, Kini has tanked the floor 75 times so far this year.

Alliance side is also highly active in Mythic Plus runs and we’re working to spread some of that to energy to the Horde, with Midnight Mythics 2-3 nights a week. Mythics are a great way to gear and increasingly vital to WoW endgame activities.

WoW Classic
More newcomers leveling, joining us before Wrath #10ForWrath

Sunwell Plateau (the last raid of Burning Crusade) is open and its difficulty (it is the un-nerfed version) has surprised many players, used to steamroll the rest of the expansion

Dungeon nights on Sunday and Wednesday continue as well!

SWTOR
Flashpoint Fridays are back! Join Maellung on the first Friday of the month to run the flashpoints of your dreams. Content is tailored to the people who attend and could include taking advantage of things like double xp or completing missions.

MFNs continue to run on Tuesdays nights. Ideas about what to do for MFN nights are welcome!

May the 4th brought a new companion pet, the P1-XL Probe Droid, and a week of double XP.

We have Ops opportunities on two of our teams. If you want to give Ops a try, give a shout out in discord. Specifically, that would be Albuspuer for TACO (Sunday nights, 7:30-9:30 Central, Imp side) and Balto for Where’s the Cantina (Monday nights, 7:30 Central, Pub side).

ESO
See Game Notes

FFXIV
AIE Map Nights, Saturday at 9:30pm EST, are still a popular event. Be a level 90, have access to all of the zones, and loot, prizes, and general merriment will be your reward. We use Level 90, 8-player maps. You do not have to bring a map to join, but if you do wish to bring one for the group to use, we are looking for the Timeworn Kumbhiraskin Treasure Map.

AIE is also hosting Sprout Raids on Thursday nights at 10pm EST. These raids will vary in levels, as we go through all of the 24-player raids in each expansion. So far, we have completed all of the Crystal Tower and the Shadow of Mhach raid series. Currently, we are working on the Rabanastre raid series. We completed The Royal City of Rabanastre last week and will be moving on to The Ridorana Lighthouse. We look forward to all of you “prime” people there on Thursday for another fun spout raid. (The joke is that one boss can tell you to stand in prime numbers to avoid getting hit from his attack. Yes, FFXIV has a math boss.)

Thanks for all of your support and energy in FFXIV. As the patches start hitting and more content is available, AIE in FFXIV will be here. Thanks!

STO
The colony is still progressing through the final tier, tier 5.

Thursday nights at 11pm is fun night. Next week we plan on having a KDF fun night. Let everyone get their KDF captains out and get them some fresh air and exercise.

Heart of the Storm event is going on now. It has a great ground set. May be the best in game.

Monday’s at 11pm eastern come watch Fleet Action Report live https://twitch.tv/grebog

Next episode Nikodas and Grebog will be back on their new character challenge captains to hit level 60 and maybe push for 65 while live. We will also discuss all the new unlocks at level 60 and 65.

GW2
Living world Season 1 Episode one is happening right now. . And, in case you didn’t know, LWS1 will be free for all forever, since it’s 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 the guild is working on upgrading the tavern which will allow for 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 9:30 eastern, as well as dungeons and more happen monthly.

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

GAME NEWS
– Since the anniversary event is over, we’ve been diving back into 12 person Trials.
– If we only have 9-11 we do one of the easier ones using our companions.
– we had 12 people last week so we decided to go into Cloudrest for the first time and were able to clear it.

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle comes out June 6 for PC/Mac and June 21 for consoles. High Isle is the newest chapter and we get to dive into the culture of the Bretons with a zone main story, six new delves and world bosses, two new public dungeons, a new trial, two new companions, and a deckbuilding game called Tales of Tribute where you can play against other players and npcs and earn things like furniture and cosmetics. And of course there will be new gear and collectibles. I’m hoping at least one of the new companions won’t get upset when you use the Blade of Woe like the two current companions do.

When it launches we will also get Update 34 which is a base game patch. Some of the changes will be the ability to include Mundus Stones in your saved armory builds, a new Quick Select Wheel on PC, and of course I expect to see some changes to abilities and gear based on the notes I’ve seen about the PTS.

What’s a good Addon Manager for ESO? – Minion is what pretty much all of us use for Addons in ESO. It is pretty simple to set up and keep updated. The downside, is it won’t automatically install any library dependencies when you install the add on so you have to make sure you install them as well.

What Addons do you recommend? – So many.
For getting around in the world
Votan’s Minimap, Votan’s Improved Quests, Votan’s Improved Locations, Ravalox QuestTracker, Map Pins

For crafting
Dolgubon’s Lazy Writ creator, Potion Maker, Votan’s fisherman, Votan’s Fish Fillet, Lost treasure and if I’m going to sell though the crafting/trading guild I use Tamriel Trade Center. I don’t run TTC all the time though because it is resource intensive.

Just for fun in groups – LovelyEmotes

Are there addons that keep you on track with the main story quest and/or the Dominion, Alderi, etc. tracks?

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

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.

STO
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.

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

WoW
In WoW Raid team news this week: Noob Raid got their first kills of Kel’Thuzad and Sylvanas, the final bosses of Sanctum Domination. Thanks to the WITT Raid team for their help! Dankinia would like to start on the new Raid – Sepulcher of the First Ones – next week if we can get a full 20 people for LFR. Come join us!

WoW Classic
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

FFXIV
See Game Notes

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!

STO
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.
