Welcome to the six new additions to the clan on both Steam and Xbox who have joined in the last few months. Make sure to reach out to one another in the public discord to arrange clan activities.

WoW Classic
The Gates of An’Qiraj are now open!

The Vanilla “Sundae” Funday events in WoW Classic during the AIE Guild Summer of Love were great! We had a nice turn out both at the start and end of the event.

Raid nights with the United Orgrimmar team continues to be awesome! Yesterday they cleared Molten Core and finished a full clear of AQ20! The schedule for Molten Core has moved to Saturdays so that more time can be devoted to Blackwing Lair on Sundays. If you’re interested in raiding, let us know and we will help guide you in the right direction!

As of today Sunday, August 9th, Greenwall is now active in WoW Classic! Our goal was to make communication easier with our friends in United Orgrimmar and another small guild called For the Birds during raid nights and various other activities throughout the week. Make sure you download the Greenwall addon so that you see all of the combined conversation otherwise you will only see ? of what’s being said now and you don’t want to miss out. Friendly reminder that the main guild chat is still considered family friendly so please be respectful to everyone!

Huge thanks to Tetsemi for working behind the scenes with Nevermore and Coma from UO to get everything up and running today!

If you’re interested in creating a character with AIE Guild in WoW Classic, we play Horde on the Pagle-PvE realm! Once you make a character, jump into the LFO channel in Discord and request a guild invite. Hope to see you in game soon! ~ GM Nevermore

WoW
Alliance Raid Hell Froze Over had 16 people join for Ny’alotha, they got Heroic Wrathion down, Took a couple of shots at Heroic Maut to take a look at the fight, then continued their saved Normal lockout and got Vexiona and Carapice down before calling it a night. They raid on Friday nights from 8pm-11pm ET and welcome anyone who would like to join them, even if they are cross realm.

Guild invites keep rolling in we are at 460 members and even with beta out, we have 10-15 people on at any given time on the Alliance side..

Saturday the Gusty and Fezgig did the Summer of Love battle pet event, and started on the Alliance side and gave out a few pets and did a several hidden pet quests. They moved over to the Horde side for a few more hours and had pretty good response to pets in guild, and again were able to do some hidden quest chains to open up pet vendors.

Gustytail will surely like to share the high moment of the evening, with a pretty cool opportunity that a special someone (identity has not been revealed) allowed us to do with 1 Million Gold!!! All in all, I think a lot of pets went to good foster homes.

Hey, Syreyne- (getting called out), Fezgig now has a full team of Anacoa Chickens lvl 1 to battle your team of left sharks

SWTOR
Last week, SWTOR jumped onto Steam and because of that, it’s a great time to jump back into the game or try it out for the first time. There are a lot of players doing the same. Content creators in general have been covering all the stuff you need to know both as a new player and a returning one. If you want to check SWTOR out, jump into the AIE discord and say hi. We have guilds on both the Republic and the Empire sides on Star Forge server.

Nar Shaddaa Nightlife is still ongoing with lots of guildies reporting having won the big prizes. Apparently it’s not impossible! The event goes on until August 25th.

During our Summer of Love MFN, we went to the Guild Stronghold on Rishi for some impromptu Huttball, then we toured the galaxy killing world bosses. We ended the evening with a mount giveaway where everyone who attended got to choose one from a special Events tab in the guild bank. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes!

On Friday, Maellung’s Flashpoint Friday event started out with a costume contest, and everyone who competed got to choose two outfits from the many that have been donated to the guild. Then we went and did some Master Mode Flashpoints that perhaps we shouldn’t have, which made it all the more fun.

Special note to let everyone know that the newest edition of BCavanagh’s Conquest Calculator is available. This is a tool you can use to plan and track your Conquest activities. Check the pins in discord to find a link!

ESO
ESO’s MFN event on Friday was called House Hunters Tamriel Edition. We spent the evening show of some of our personal houses in game and several of our members proved once again they are amazing decorators. Skye’s SoL themed house was outstanding and the attention to detail was amazing. Vore’s library of floating books and neat display of items obtained by the Antiquities skill made it a home that a mage would aspire to reside in. Looci, Shimmer, and Kelseer also opened their homes for our tour. If you want to check out all the houses we visited, the video is on my twitch channel, twitch.tv/dankinia and will go up on the AIE Youtube channel soon as well.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

STO
STO’s SoL event will be running the Risa event on Sunday at 8:30 PM Eastern. Hang out on the beach, build a sand castle and tour the island. We look forward to seeing everyone

LOTRO
Last night fun was had and prizes were given out at our search and rescue event. If you missed it do not worry it will be coming around again. Do not forget if you have not claimed your free quest packs to do so before the end of the month using the code LOTROFREEQUESTS in the lotro store. Expansion quest packs are also still available for 99 LP through the end of the month as well, this does not include Mordor and Minas Morgul though. Rohan housing is live and AIE has started to take over 1 of the neighborhoods.

There are also the rumblings of the rumor that the band will get back together

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

SWTOR
The big news this week was that SWTOR is now on Steam! The original standalone SWTOR launcher still works and there is no pressure to switch, but many guildies switched over on the first day the Steam version was available with no problems. And the additional visibility for the game on Steam has been great. In the future there will be Steam achievements and there is other Steam stuff in the works.

Guildies are looking forward to the return of swoop racing this coming Tuesday. Several people will be maxing out their rep too, which will enable them to play through the last installment of the swoop race story. There is rep and currency to earn from three factions, which you can then use to buy speeders, decorations, and whatnot.

BCavanan has updated the SWTOR Conquest Calculator for the latest conquest updates from patch 6.1.2. He has a post on Reddit that links to his Google Documents spreadsheet.
https://www.reddit.com/r/swtor/comments/hyfrzt/swtor_conquest_calculator_updated_for_612/

(I’m not completely sure what to say about SoL, so here is a placeholder) During the week of Summer of Love, MFN (or MEGA or MM Friday) will be a special SoL Version, so stay tuned!

ESO
On Friday August 7th the members of AIE will be doing a non-combat event for Summer of Love during our normal MFN time slot. House decorating is something that a lot of our members (not me) excel at and we will be doing a tour to see the fantastic décor our guild members have come up with for the in-game houses their characters call home. Anyone who wants to can open their home for us to visit and we will be doing the tours as a group. I promise we won’t destroy the furniture, graffiti the walls, or leave trash all over the place, but I can’t promise I won’t find something for my character to jump off that might result in a ghost wandering around for a short while.

Currently the Summerset event is underway until Tuesday, August 4th at 10am EST. During this event you will receive extra loot from all of the daily quest rewards, resources nodes and Psijic Portals, and the world and delve bosses. Also the first time you complete a Geyser, delve, or world boss daily each day you will get 3 event tickets and a Glorious Summerset coffer in addition to the regular rewards. As usual, the event tickets can only be earned once per account. The reward boxes contain set items, crafting mats, furnishing recipes, and pages for a brand new Snowhawk mage outfit style. You can only get one Glorious Summerset coffer a day, but there is no limit to the common Summerset Coffers you can earn during the event. The Indrik feathers as well as new berries are being sold in the Impresario’s shop so if you are a mount collector, the event tickets can be used to purchase those and if you are not a mount collector, there are a lot of new furniture options for sale as well.

FFXIV
We’ll be doing map nights at the usual time on august 8th, but we’ll be doing level 70 maps.
Last night was a rather successful run for the treasure hunters, with several end runs and lots of ‘skittles’ to be had, much to Kelseer’s chagrin.

The upcoming patch (Aug. 11), which will complete the story of Shadowbringers; the expansion of the free trial from up to level 35 to up to level 60, including the Heavensward expansion; and the 50% off sale on the Square Enix and Playstation stores (get the complete game, including Shadowbringers, for $30!) until August 17.

Much more on the patch and AIE activities with Abovan on the next podcast.

STO
We got Tier 3 Research for the Spire and Tier 2 for the Colony. It was an amazing effort by everyone. That unlocked the Vulnerability Locator Tactical Console. The Embassy Diplomacy III and Colony Renewable Energy III are the next projects the Fleet will focus on. This will unlock more consoles to use on fleet member’s ships. The current event ends on 30 July. If you still need tokens to get the Red Angel suit, you need to hurry. Risa starts on August 4th. Get your board shorts and hover packs ready. A New ship that was designed by environment artist Nick Duguid is one of the rewards. This week’s Fleet Night is off because of RL. Next week Dent will be starting up episodes that are not part of the regular seasons.

EVE
World war Bee 2.0 is underway. Eve vs Goons basically lol. Fun for all!

Let’s get a quick On-The-Scene quote from our Fearless Leader Hoots – “I don’t know what’s happening, but we’re in Fountain again.”

LOTRO
Servers are back up and seem to be running ok after data center issues. New update will be coming either this week or next week that will include Rohan Housing. Standing Stone Games is planning on giving out a thank you gift for VIPs and one for the others for being patient (ish) during the issues to be announced this week. We are planning on some fun stuff during SoL so stay tuned to later in the show for more details.

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

AIE Summer of Love will run from August 1st through August 9th, keep an eye out on https://aie-guild.org for an announcement post with dates and activities soon.

Clean your drinking mugs, the Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl is coming up. Watch for an invitation on the in game guild calendars.

Purchase A 6-month Subscription And Get A New Mount!

The fearsome Steamscale Incinerator is a spark-breathing robo-terror that rules the skies wherever it flies. Legends say a mad gnomish inventor had a deranged dream to ride a dragon, so he built this metal monstrosity powered with a trapped demon in order to create “an authentic dragon soul.”

Once you’ve purchased the 6 Month subscription from the Blizzard Shop, the Steamscale Incinerator mount will automatically be added to your in-game collection. Players on an existing 6-month recurring subscription with a future renewal date will receive the Steamscale Incinerator as a gift in their Battle.net desktop app at no additional charge prior to July 20, 2020.

Save 50% On Select Pets, Mounts, And More During Our Summer Sale!

If you’re looking for a hot summer deal, then we’ve got you covered. You can save 50% on select pets, mounts, and more now through July 19.

SWTOR
AIE has been doing well in SWTOR this month. MFNs are on Tuesdays at 9PM Eastern, six Operations teams run weekly, and Friday Master Mode Flashpoints run bi-weekly. Last month’s MEGA was a special edition as it was part of AIE’s ‘Where to Start’ streaming weekend.

This month marked the beginning of the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally and lots of guildies got their swoop on. This is an event where you progress by doing tricks, blowing up things, and indulging your need for speed. It is going to join the recurring line up of SWTOR event weeks, but first it’s going to have an early return at the end of July. Also, the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event will start up this week and go for just under a month. That is not as long as it has run in past summers, so don’t procrastinate!

ESO
Stonethorn DLC and Update 27 was announced. Stonethorn will have two new four person dungeons that continue the stories told in the Harrowstorm DLC and Greymoor. The new dungeons are Castle Thorn, where you are assaulting a fortress to put a stop to an evil invasion, and Stone Garden, where you confront an evil genius and his experiments. Update 24, which is a base-game patch, will have performance improvements to help with stability and reduce load times and will add Homestead character pathing. Character Pathing will allow you to build paths for your pets, assistants, and mounts to follow when they are placed in your houses so they don’t just have to stand in one spot. While there is no release date set yet, the DLC and the update should be on the PTS sometime next week if you want to check them out in advance of launch.

FFXIV
FFXIV’s next patch, “Reflections in Crystal” had it’s release date confirmed for August 11th. With it will be the conclusion of the Shadowbringer’s story, a new trial boss, and the next chapter of the YorHa Dark Apocalypse 24 man raid series, AKA the Nier: Automata crossover.

Map night continues! We’ll be running level 80 maps for the remainder of July with a level 70 map night on August 8th. We’ll likely return to a full level 80 map schedule with the release of patch 5.3, as new materials should be introduced to the Lyhe Ghiah (Lee-a Gee-ya), the treasure dungeons of the pixies.

LOTRO
Thanks to the where to start event and the podcast, traffic has picked up. Stuff we are doing over the next couple weeks will be finally working on some slayer deeds and also it is time to return to Monster Play

STO
We have had a lot of activity this week. We opened up the Research Upgrade on the Spire and then got it completed a few days later. Everyone one put in a great effort. The construction crews have their worker bees going and will have it built a week from Sunday.

As always, Fleet Night is Sundays at 8:30 PM Eastern/7:30 PM Central

And with that, let’s get back to Shojo, Kini, and the Hordeling and find out what’s going on in Animal Crossing.

GAME NEWS
(June 27th) The first Bug Off happened and was both fun and frustrating.
The 2nd Fishing Tourney just ended, how did everyone do?!
Tips for next tourney (stock up on bait, so much bait)

Summer Update Wave 1:

Every Sunday a few AIE members will post good Turnip sale prices and throughout the week post good buying prices at Nooks.
People also announce shooting stars, if Redd is visiting and what he has for sale, and neat items that are available in the stores.

Destiny 2
The upcoming expansion is still receiving some buzz. “Beyond the Light” is available for pre-order on Steam and consoles.

The Iron Banner is returning and has some new rewards. It will run from June 30th to July 7th. Note that skill-based matchmaking is disabled this season. Good luck, Guardians.

The sixth straight month of Twitch rewards for the game are available. Link your Twitch and Bungie accounts to claim your rewards: https://twitch.amazon.com/prime/loot/destiny2

Other news, and highlights from the past week at Bungie can be found at https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49294

Some are choosing to focus on completing content that will be destined for the “content vault,” and may not be seen again for quite some time as the game moves into its new content model. Destinations and content contained within Io, Titan, Mercury, Mars and Leviathan will be among the first things to be archived. Now is a good time to wrap up your experiences with these locations.

Remember to check out the public discord’s #destiny2 channel for clan activity.

The Division 2
Title Update 10 is live with balancing and other changes.
https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2236578-Title-Update-10-Patch-Notes-Updated-2-00-PM-CEST-June-18

Season 2 is live and the first Manhunt target is active. Roadmap follows:

The “Where to Start” Streaming event session for Division 2 happened last night and was broadcast via the game community’s and theDurus’ twitch channels. It showcased a starting character’s experience as they first entered the DC area, explained game systems, and talked about the story.

Should you be picking up the game, there is a friend referral program. Make sure to contact a vet player of the game so you both can receive some rewards: https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/the-division/the-division-2/friend-referral

If you’d like to join the Clan please contact @Durus in discord, or use the #lfo channel in the public discord. The game is discussed in the #thedivision2 channel. There is currently a general inquiry for those still playing to see if a fun night can be established to get some playtime together.

Diablo 3/4
The new season for Diablo 3 is just around the corner and begins on the 3rd of July. Season 21 is named “Trials of Tempests”

https://us.diablo3.com/en/blog/23428368/season-21-trials-of-tempests-begins-july-3-6-4-2020

The latest Diablo 4 quarterly update is available at https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/diablo4/23463858/diablo-iv-quarterly-update-june-2020

* This is a good read and talks about the new open world of Sanctuary as well team playtesting experiences.

If you’ll be diving back into the game for the new Season, look for an invite to the clan and community in the public Discord’s #lfo channel.

WoW
Summer of Love is coming up, watch for announcements on that, and if you have any ideas for WoW events, please contact Syreyne.

Also tune in July 8th for a Shadowlands Update

WoW Classic
Vanilla Sundae Fundays

Scoop out a little time from your schedule, and level up with us in WoW Classic!

Whether you’re just starting out and sprinkling through starter quests, or adding the cherry on top of a max level 60… Everyone is invited to join us for an old fashioned social hour in game and Discord!

SWTOR
The last two weeks of MFNs have seen us going into Karagga’s Palace on the Pub side and and Dread Fortress on the Imp side. Afterwards this week, we killed the Isotope-5 droid known as the Golden Fury in Toborro’s Courtyard–or as we sometimes call it, the golden chicken in the Marriott Courtyard. And no one got killed in the laser because they were reading discord….

This month’s MEGA was extra special as Marcus and Fezgig took part in the AIE “Where to Start” Streaming Weekend. Marcus streamed SWTOR character creation and beginning play for a Nautolan marauder with tips and tricks for gameplay while Fezgig created a new character and played along. Together, Marcus and Fezgig put together a whole weekend of streaming for the guild that was truly epic.

Coming up this Friday will be Maellung’s Master Mode Flashpoints for the Aratech Ice mount. Come knock out a couple Flashpoints toward this achievement and have some fun.

In game news, the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally starts this week and we will definitely be checking out this new event. There will be new reps to gain, and new mounts, titles, and achievements to earn!

ESO
Greymoor is awesome and the antiquities system is still fun. The past few MFN’s have been focused on the new zone and next Friday’s MFN we will group up and run the two new public dungeons.

As part of the antiquities system in addition to treasure you can sell for gold and furnishings, you can get the very cool looking Ebon Dwarven Wolf Mount. The mount requires 17 different pieces and the lead for each piece drops in specific locations. Throughout the last week, people have been grouping up in discord to farm the leads together so if you are after the mount, feel free to request help in discord or guild chat or watch for others to say they are going on a farming run.

FFXIV
The FFXIV raid team completed Eden 5 savage. Map night is on break on July 4th and will resume on July 11th, where we’ll do level 70 maps instead of level 80.

Remember the Goblin Server, in the Crystal Data Center, is a preferred server which means you get the Road to 70 XP buff on new characters created on Goblin.

As always, please join the #ffxiv channel in AIE Discord and see the MNF list for all our in game activities.

https://www.buzzsprout.com/143519/4141835-episode-75-aie-s-where-to-start-event.mp3?blob_id=15966047

Marcus and Nick chat with fellow AIE officer Fezgig about AIE’s Where to Start event coming up June 27th and 28th! The event’s goal is to walk new players through getting started in the guild’s favorite games. Listen in for details!

NOMADS
Destiny 2
The next expansion, “Beyond the Light” arrives on 22nd September.
Details at https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Destiny/BeyondLight

No Destiny 3 soon, instead devs will be transforming Destiny 2. Read more about “Building a Viable Future in Destiny 2” at https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49189

That’s the Destiny buzz to be sure. Restructure of the game content is coming to fix some progression issues and better structure the game for future expansions.

Our AIE Destiny crew is excited in general and a handful of people have jumped back in recent and are checking out gear updates, etc.

Anyone interested should jump in that Destiny channel and say hi. The Clan is still open for invites as well.

There’s over 90 accounts attached to the clan right now but we can make room as needed too.

Diablo III
PTR has ended. Patch 2.6.9 should be live soon.

Division 2
Title Update 10 is due on 16th June. Details at https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/the-division/the-division-2/news-updates/157QiTvKizohEweybOO8F9/title-update-10-to-release-june-16th

Season 2 to start 23rd June, new raid on 30th June.

WoW
Noob Raid is still running 2 groups every Saturday night. We generally get 5/10 bosses down and last night Noob Raid Prime killed Ra-den for the first time. Also thank you to Gijora for being our tactician and to Sy for leading Noob Raid Alpha since Dankinia leaves being in two raids at the same time to Gi.

WoW Classic
Scoop out a little time from your schedule, and level up with us in WoW Classic!

Whether you’re just starting out and sprinkling through starter quests,
or adding the cherry on top of a max level 60…

Everyone is invited to join us for an old fashioned social hour in game and Discord! 🙂

Vanilla Sundae Fundays begin this Sunday, June 21st at 2pm Server Time, and every Sunday after!

And if you’re part of AIE in WoW Classic and are interested in raiding with our friends from United Orgrimmar on Sunday evenings, please contact Chrisi or Deadkrumpet!

They can answer any questions you might have about raiding, attunement, or gearing up in general. We have had eight AIE guildies raid with United Orgrimmar to take on Molten Core!

SWTOR
Things are ticking along in swtor this month. Ops teams are opsing, MFN is MFNing, MEGA continues to MEGA, and Friday night Master Mode Flashpoints is hitting its stride. June MEGA will be extra special this month as it is part of the AIE Streaming Event.

Near the end of the month, we will be getting The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally. This event will take place on multiple planets and will include rewards of new mounts, outfits, titles, and pets. In this racing event, you have to impress the crowds, blow up things, and avoid snares.

We are also not-so-patiently waiting for word from Bioware about when the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife Event will return. It is likely to be in July–fingers crossed! Since we got a chance to see it on the public test server, we know that there are new missions and new rewards to achieve.

ESO
Greymoor is awesome and the antiquities system is still fun. The past few MFN’s have been focused on the new zone and next Friday’s MFN we will group up and run the two new public dungeons.

As part of the antiquities system in addition to treasure you can sell for gold and furnishings, you can get the very cool looking Ebon Dwarven Wolf Mount. The mount requires 17 different pieces and the lead for each piece drops in specific locations. Throughout the last week, people have been grouping up in discord to farm the leads together so if you are after the mount, feel free to request help in discord or guild chat or watch for others to say they are going on a farming run.

FFXIV
Map night continues every saturday at 9:30 pm eastern. Come help us look for lost treasure and explore the depths of FFXIV’s treasure dungeons! Send Kelseer a message if you want more information.

Goblin, the server that AIE is on, remains the only server in the Crystal Data Center in the preferred status. This means you will get the road to 70 buff, giving you a ridiculous XP bonus as you level a new character to level 70 on ANY job.

The next patch will be dropping soon, patch 5.3. We don’t have an exact date, but mid July is the current estimate. This patch will include the streamlining of the ARR questline. In the meantime, the super helpful AIE membership will be happy to help new players though the questlines and dungeons. Fun Nights are a great night to get this help, but there are helpful members online at all hours now to assist newer folks though their Main Story Questline.

In Raid news, there is a proposed schedule change to the NOD raid team. The poll is up on the raid discord. Don’t have access or want to join or even start up your own team? Ask Abovan or Durus for assistance. And remember, you do not need to be an officer in any capacity to organize your own raid team in AIE!

LOTRO
Fun was had in monster play last night. Look out for it to hit a regular rotation in the SNL lineup. There is a lot that is being planned in the near future so stay tuned to the lotro channel for what is coming. (if you don’t talk about it later in the show SNL will be cancelled on June 27th to keep the focus on the streaming event)

STO
Fleet night is still going well. We meet weekly at 8:30 PM Eastern. All are welcome.
Fleet holdings are progressing. We are still working on both Spire and Embassy projects.
There is currently an event campaign running, The No Win Scenario. This is the work towards getting a free Tier 6 ship or 1000 Lobi Crystals.

And with that, let’s get back to Marcus and Fezgig and find out what’s going on with the AIE Where to Start Event!.

Together Chrisi and Deadkrumpet are shining examples of what it means to be part of Alea Iacta Est!

SWTOR
There has been a new event up on the PTS involving swoop racing as well as some new features added to the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife Event. The Swoop Rally event is targeted for sometime in June and the Nightlife Event is set for “later this summer”. Once the Swoop Rally event hits, it will probably be up for a week. The duration of the Nightlife Event is unknown and will be both way longer and way shorter than necessary.

Double XP continues until mid-June. If there is an extension in the works, we have not heard about it yet.

MEGA in May was a datacron crawl and Marcus managed to lead us to a ton of datacrons in one evening. June Mega will be in conjunction with “AIE’s Where to Start Event”

MFN visited Scum and Villainy this week, which is one of the game’s longest operations. We cleared 4 bosses and now have 2 left. Since we don’t have lockout extensions, BC will organize a small group to go in early on the day we plan to go back to clear a couple bosses so that the MFN group can knock out the rest and get achievements for the last two bosses.

Friday night MM runs have happened on two Friday nights so far for people to work on the Aratech Ice speeder achievement. This will continue to run every two weeks or so until people all get their speeders and will then continue on the Pub side if there is interest for that.

Grats to our newest Operations team, WtC-? (Where’s the Cantina?), which now has a full roster. They meet on Monday nights on the pub side.

ESO
Greymoor launched on Tuesday, May 26th and the opening cinematic was really good. No spoilers, but the cinematic tied nicely into the new tutorial you go through after character creation. There were a few hiccups on launch day, which was to be expected but for the most part it went fairly well in my opinion. The new zone looks great and the new Antiquities system is fun and rewarding.

For next Friday’s MFN, we plan to do a zone clear in the overland area Western Skyrim. We will grab the Skyshards, clear the delves and public dungeons, kill the world bosses, and deal with a ritual site or two as a group. The following week we will do the same in Blackreach as well as go back to the overland area to get anything we might not have had time for the following week.

FFXIV
The Final Fantasy XIV Crew is busy as always, always welcoming new and returning members to the FC, as well as providing tons of content for the existing members, either they are leveling their first job or running end game content.

We currently have 2 in-game events happening at this time.

The first is the Moogle Treasure Trove. This event focuses on group content, such as MSQ dungeons, 24-player raids required for the current relic weapon, and some other seldom queued events like Rival Wings. Running this content will reward you with the normal rewards plus irregular tomestones that can be used to purchase mounts, orchestral rolls, minions, and limited time cosmetic gear. Each major city has an “Itinerant Moogle” to sell you these items. This event will run until the launch of Patch 5.3.

The other event is the FFXI crossover event, The Maiden’s Rhapsody. This story based event will follow the adventures of an oddly dressed adventurer. Rewards for this event is a cosmetic set that resembles a gear set from FFXI. This event will run from now to June 22nd.

In game, we still have the many, many weekly events. The Mandatory Fun Nights are Monday at 11pm EST, Wednesday night at 9:00pm EST. The Tuesday night “Cool and Casual” raid night, which is normally an all-request legacy raid night, happens on Tuesday at 9:30pm EST. If you have a raid request to submit, please let an FFXIV officer know prior to the raid.

Thursday is our raid team’s raid night, “Noobs on Demand” or NOD. We have started to dip our toes into the savage and extreme content. There are still slots available for the raid team and interested parties can speak with a FFXIV officer for more details. Note that the raid team is separate from AIE, but it just so happens that most of the FFXIV officers are on this team.

Thank you to all of the current FFXIV players in AIE. We would not have been able to create this great community without all of you, so thank you! So, thank you, stay safe, and remember to stretch before displaying your epic /nod skills.

EVE
lil bit of PewPew going on in Vale of the silent between random enemies. Nothing that involves big block battles, but good pixel erasing fun between different alliances. Involves mostly EU and late USTZ battles so far with random AU timezone skirmishes

STO
MFN is picking up. We have had a good turnout the last few weeks.

We are currently in the middle of a Red Alert week. All the Red Alerts are available to run. If you do it 5 times, a reward of a universal upgrade token will be yours.

The next event campaign will be starting next week, The No Win Scenario. By completing this event daily, you can work towards receiving a T6 ship token or 1000 Lobi Crystals.
LLAP

GW2
Dejara has been and continues to run MFN on most Monday nights.

Did you miss the last monster play event? Want a reason to jump back into monster play with maybe an old or new monster? You are in luck. Monster play event is coming back to SNL June 13 at the same special time as last the last one 9-11 eastern (8-10 Max time). SSG also extended the all open questing through August. As usual stay tuned to #lotro for more upcoming events.

And with that, we have some round table questions!

Details will be in the blog. Please help share this across WoW on both sides. We will also be creating guild event posts on the in-game calendar as well.

SWTOR
May the 4th brought everyone a new astromech, which Max promptly added to his dwindling supply. We also, used the fourth as an excuse for a party version of MFN. We unlocked the last rooms on both flagships, had a Hutt race, and blew each other up with huttballs. You may have seen a shot in discord of us all disguised as Hutts, filling up the ship elevator to way beyond capacity.

Friday the 15th was the first meeting of Flashpoint Fun. It’s an opportunity to run the Master Mode Flashpoints needed to achieve the Aratech Ice speeder. Maellung will be running it roughly every two weeks and will continue until everyone has their speeder. It started on the Imperial side, but depending on interest, may run on the Republic side as well.

May’s MEGA is coming up on the 22nd. Marcus is going to lead us in a datacron crawl. He has gotten people stationed at some of the trickier ones so that we can use the flagship to summon people. If you don’t have all your datacrons yet, this will be a great opportunity to fill is some gaps.

Guildie Spicolee has started a new Ops team. They are going to meet on Monday nights (8:30PM to 10:30PM Eastern) on the Republic side. They need one more DPS and then they are ready to roll! The team’s name is WtC-? (Where’s the Cantina?)

The collections unlock sale ends tomorrow!

ESO
When Greymoor launches, Update 26 comes out as well which is a base game patch. In that patch, they have overhauled the Vampire skill line and changed the way players afflicted with that curses play. there will be new abilities along with replacements and updates to existing ones. It also changes the way you manage the four stages of the curse and to increase the stage as well as remain in stage 4 you’ll need to feed unlike now when the stage increases over time and doesn’t degrade. These changes mean a lot of players who have vampires just for the passives, might decide to cure it instead of keep it.

For MFN on May 29th we will be going into the new area together. If you plan on joining the fun, and you should, please hold off on doing the starting quests on at least one of your characters.

FFXIV
Like many things in our world today, Covid-19 has impacted Final Fantasy XIV’s patching schedule, delaying patch 5.3, Reflections in Crystal, by 2-4 weeks, putting the patch somewhere in the mid-July timeframe. With that said, patch 5.3 is shaping up some significant changes to the game, especially for new players.

The old MSQ, the game’s primary quest line that takes you from level 1 to max level and beyond, is being streamlined in the early game, removing about 13% of the game’s fluff quests. The MSQ experience is being revamped to provide all of the experience you need to level from 1-50 on its own. Another big change is to add the mounts to the MSQ (previously a side quest), adding the Crystal Tower Raids (Very Important to the story of Shadowbringers), and arguably the biggest change, flying in the original game lands!

For the FFXIV Vets out there, patch 5.3 will have the next installment of the highly anticipated Dark Apocalypse raid series, The Puppet’s Bunker. This will be a 24-player alliance raid. The next step of the Resistance Weapon upgrade will also be available on this patch. If you are a crafter and have your Skysteel Tool crafting relic, that will also have upgrades available as of this patch as well. A new beast tribe for the dwarves will be available for the crafters of the realm as well. In addition, a mystery trial is also available as part of the MSQ, which is FFXIV speak for “Spoilers, sweetie.”

We have a lot of community news today, which we will go over in a few!

STO
Hailing frequency are open.
– Fleet Night is going well. We currently meet on Earth Space Dock on Sundays at 8:30 PM Eastern. Any level experience is welcome. Phasers are set to fun!
– STO is in the middle of their 2nd Event for the T6 Campaign this year. These events progress us towards getting another T6 coupon for a ship out of the Zen Store.

EVE

LOTRO
The anniversary event runs through the 20th. Only a few more days to try to finish up quests with the event and also to farm those steel tokens for your monster players. Another PvMP night is coming soon, so stay tuned to #lotro for more details.

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

GAME NEWS
Community Events.
Monday Night MFN. Questing content, instance groups, roulettes, ect.
Tuesday, All request raid legacy raid night. Old raids, mount farming, old extremes. Request it and we will try to accommodate.

Thursday, not an AIE event, but our first raid team is off the ground running, Noobs on Demand (NoD). Look for updates in the raid updates channel.

Saturday night map nights! Very popular event where we run maps!

Late Night Fish Club. Most nights, we have a handful of us doing the ocean fishing events at 2am EST.

The FC Crafting Projects are underway to create Airships and Submarines for run missions for the FC. Some of the potential rewards are tier 3 buffs for the FC, pets, and mounts that are only acquirable via the exploration missions. The crafting logs are posted to the website periodically for interested parties.

One of the rewards that the airships and subs bring back often are crafting shards, crystals, and clusters. These items can be provided to AIE membership at 10% under the market value. See an AIE officer for details.

Clan activity has been low. I encourage members to reach out in the community discord’s #thedivision2 chat channel to arrange nights for play or ask for help.

Diablo 3
Season 20, Season of the Forbidden Archives, is still going strong and sees some AIE community members dipping back into the game here and there. Remember you have the “Alea Iacta Est” community and the Nomads clan at your disposal. Just ask for invites in the AIE community discord in channel #nomads. The season is scheduled to run “roughly three months” and just started on March 13th, 2020. There’s still time to jump in and have some fun.

Much of the news with Diablo is centered on the franchise’s heavily anticipated Diablo IV. In February, Blizzard began quarterly updates on this title. The first is available at https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/diablo4/23308274/diablo-iv-quarterly-update-february-2020

Destiny 2
Guardians class in friendly class competitions in the new event “Guardian Games.” Daily challenges provide opportunities for each class to achieve victory towards the reward, bragging rights, and a class specific decoration for the Tower public space that’ll serve as a reminder of their excellence for the remainder of the year until the next event. Daily rewards and details on the games can be found at https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Seasons/Events/GuardianGames

Bungie is partnering with Direct Relief once more in the Guardian Heart’s campaign to aid in the fight against COVID-19. For those who would like more information about this campaign: https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/48946

Remember you can also play much of Destiny 2 for free with Destiny 2: New Light. Access to much of the game and all its first 2 year pass campaigns and activities are available for free with some restrictions on content in the latest Shadowkeep expansion. Join for free and receive more information on this program at https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Destiny/NewLight

There are a few AIE members carrying on the fight in Destiny 2. Reach out to them to arrange playtimes and ask for help in the community discord’s #destiny2 channel. You may submit an application to join the clan at https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=2122972

Officers are always available and paying attention in the #lfo channel. Don’t hesitate to shout out there for app approvals in any AIE game.

WoW
From Gustytail – We had great fun doing Volunteer Guard Day on both Alliance and Horde. It was a last minute idea and we racked up impressive scores killing invaders in Orgrimmar and Stormwind. We also accidentally killed Critho. Oops!

Invictus is the new co-guild for invites on the Horde side. Just use the in game guild finder to search for Alea Iacta Est and apply. Just a reminder, once your application is approved, you won’t get an in game notification, so make sure you go back to the Communities panel (J) and accept your invite.

Fezgig is the new officer. Come learn more about the newest AIE Officer here https://aie-guild.org/blog/2020/04/new-aie-officer-fezgig/ and make sure you listen to Episode 341 as well.

Officer spotlight article on Syreyne https://aie-guild.org/blog/2020/05/meet-an-aie-officer-syreyne-edition/ keep an eye out on the blog as more interviews are on the way!

Alliance guild is over 300 members!
HFO had 25 people Friday night!

Dankinia – Noob Raid has had 45-50 people attending the last few weeks so we have been running two groups with myself leading one, Syrene leading the other, and Gijora jumping back and forth as needed. It’s been a lot of fun and we tend to get 4-5 bosses down every Saturday night. If you would like to join us, there is no item level requirement. Just be in guild chat a little before 11pm est and watch for me to announce that invites are going out.

SWTOR
Have some conquest points with your conquest points. The latest changes to the Conquest system have everyone remarking on all the new ways to gain points as well as sparking conversations in the community and among guildies about whether the changes have made it TOO easy or whether there is some method behind Bioware’s madness. In the meantime, it’s definitely affected gameplay for many AIE’ers in swtor as they switch out characters more often to get personal targets met. It will be interesting to see how it goes once the initial hubbub dies down and we settle into the new normal.

The public test server is currently up, so people can work on testing the new Master Mode version of the current Operation, The Nature of Progress.

MFN still meets on Tuesdays at 9PM Eastern. This week we will be celebrating and opening the remaining rooms on both flagships. Also, BC has some fun things planned for the future. May’s MEGA will be a datacron crawl and will be on the 22nd. Now is a good time to jump into the game because we have a double XP event going on until mid June.

And last, but not least, May the 4th is Looci’s birthday as well as the birthday of guildie Racevan’s son! May the force be with us all.

STO
Tonight’s Fleet Night will be focused around the Winter Wonderland that Q brought back.

There is currently a double XP event going on.

Next week they will be running another event for a few weeks to work towards either a tier 6 ship or 1000 lobi crystals.

FFXIV
Map nights are still a super popular event and profitable for every attendee. Maps are greatly appreciated, but not required for attendance.

Tuesday night casual raid nights have been getting a lot of traction, with older raids being requested and fulfilled. Special Extreme mounts are also common activities, getting cool and unique mounts for all attendees.

Thursday night “Noobs on Demand” (NoD) is looking to start up this week. Look for updates on their successes in the raid activity channel.

Goblin, the server that AIE plays on is once again a Preferred Server. Many new players are starting up on our server, so plenty of new folks to adventure alongside with, since new characters will get the “road to 70 buff” giving you a MASSIVE xp bonus on all jobs under 70. So now is a great time to start up FFXIV with AIE. Drop by the #ffxiv channel for any questions or to meet the many AIE players of Final Fantasy XIV.

EVE
All operations within normal parameters. Military deployment is officially over. ISK making may resume. Translation: We’re all in Animal Crossing playing the Stalk Market

LOTRO
Lotro had a successful PvMP night last week. We had a lot of fun and if you missed it there will be more PvMP themed SNLs in the future. so if you missed the first one you will have a chance to join in next time. Standing Stone Games has extended its all content free-to-play through May 31st. If you are VIP or lifetime VIP as a thank you Standing Stone Games is giving all VIP a free medium carry-all.

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

GAME NEWS
The next chapter for ESO, Greymoor, will launch on Tuesday May 26th for PC/Mac and on June 9th for consoles. Update 26 will go live at that time as well. For all players, Update 26 will have more server and client side optimization and stability improvements. For those that purchase the new chapter, we will be journing to Western Skyrim. The area should feel familiar to those that spent hours playing TES V: Skyrm because of the geography, however since we will be adventuring earlier in the timeline there will be new areas to discover. In addition, we will get to delve into the vast subterranean area of Blackreach.

One of the new systems that will be launched alongside Greymoor is the antiquities system. You join the Antiquarians Circle in the city of Solitude in Western Skyrim which will walk you through a tutorial quest explaining how the system works. The system will have two mini games and skill lines to go with them. There will be a variety of items you can get such as Mythic equipment, treasure to sell, motifs, furnishings, and a mount.

As usual, the Friday after the new chapter launches our MFN will be spent exploring the new zone together and maybe checking out the new Antiquities system. Our recent MFN activities have been random dungeon runs and public dungeon clears. Also one of our members, Thuggs, has created a course he calls “Golden Lessons” to provide tips and tricks to gold making in game.

Also ask Mew and Kini about Fallout 76

Wastelanders is here.
Settlers and Raiders
Ally functionality
Interactive NPC dialog

Lanc did a ACNH happy hour last night and was in channel along with Dankinia. Keep an eye out for future events, the #animal-crossing channel is hopping with ACNH questions and discussion.

Wasterlanders launched this week, and is a dramatic improvement on the game. We have actual Human NPCs finally, storylines, dialog choices, and just a general feeling of ‘Hey, this is a Fallout game’.

Division 2
Seasons are still going strong with the second manhunt target available now. Clan activity has trickled down a bit since launch. I recommend that you reach out to fellow Agents in Discord to look for groups and plan missions.

Diablo 3
Season 20 began on March 13: The Season of the Forbidden Archives. The buff this season allows you to equip any three items in the Kanai’s cube rather than restricting you to one from each category. Rewards this season include making the season 8 rewards available to any who missed them, and a new bat pet.
https://us.diablo3.com/en/blog/23319442/season-20-now-live-2-28-2020

There’s more than a handful of folks who love to dive into each season and are willing to help you get started and knock off the season’s achievements and help you earn rewards. Seek them out in the nomad’s channel in discord.

Destiny 2
Did you know what Destiny 2 is free to play and is available on Steam? There are still some AIE members who love to run around in this game as well.

The new season in Destiny 2 is called “Season of the Worthy” and lasts through June 9th.
Link your Twitch Prime account with your Destiny account to receive drops each month.

Speaking of Steam, we do have an AIE Steam Group. It doesn’t get a lot of use given the community’s discord. However, if you’re more Steamy than Discordy, check it out.

WoW Classic

Zul Gurub (20 man, resets every 3 days, gear is raid-ish with a new reputation and a lot of class items to get) is out, and Silithus is being retaken by Cenarion Hold (Elf/Druids, new reputation), giving quite a lot of new things to farm

SWTOR

This Tuesday, 6.1.1 will drop. It will mark the start of a double XP event that will run for a month. Time to roll up that assassin you’ve been dreaming about. What’s not to love about striking out from the shadows with your double-bladed light saber!

Along with double xp will come some Conquest quality of life changes (more ways for instant travel!), class changes, and as host of bug fixes.

Next week also brings Bounty Contract Week and MFN will be on the Republic side.

On April 10th, Corley conducted our version of The Amazing Race for our April MEGA. It was a ton of fun and very well attended. Many thanks to everyone who helped out and attended! May Mega will be a Datacron hunt.

ESO

Greymoor, the next chapter (expansion) of ESO comes out on May 18th for PC. The new area will be familiar, yet different for anyone who played Skyrim. We will be visiting Western Skyrim, but much earlier in the timeline then we saw in TES: V Skyrim game. The expansion will also take us into the depths of Blackreach. A massive underground realm that the prologue quests we recently did just touched on.

MFN is Friday night at 9pm est. Join us for an escape from reality with friends while we run dungeons, clear zones, and laugh when Kini fall off cliffs.

FFXIV

Map Nights are still a major highlight, as we are fielding 2+ full groups for maps, excitement, and pockets lined with Gil. Anyone level 80+ is welcome to join in and bringing maps is not required, but highly appreciated. Map nights are Saturday Nights, 9:30pm EST. We coordinate via Discord Voice in the AIE FFXIV channel and we form up the groups in front of the AIE FC house. See you there, treasure hunters! (And bring those Skittles!)

Tuesday Night’s Fun Night is still going as a legacy raid night. Last week we completed most of Alexander Normal, completing The Father and Son Wings (Encounters A1N [Alex 1 Normal] to A18N [Alex 8 Normal]) on Tuesday night with some spill over to Friday night finishing off the Creator Wing (A9N – A12N). Alexander was the 8 player raid of the Heavensward Expansion, level 60. It’s a great story, with some great encounters. We hope to see you at the next Fun Night on Tuesday at 9:30pm EST. We gather up in the AIE FFXIV Voice Discord. Also, don’t forget, legacy raids are a great way to farm up some poetics, which end game folks could use to get some relic weapons, just sayin’.

Thursday nights are Extreme Night, where we strive to do more challenging content. These past couple of weeks we have been going into Eden Normals to assist in gearing up and to get comfortable with some of the mechanics that may be presented to us in Savage modes. We strongly encourage signups for this event, as the Savage content is not for the faint of heart. Please speak with Abovan or Durus for details on this raid team and access to the Raid Discord.

Looking for something that can only be purchased with FC credits to really hit the spot on your apartment, house, or FC room? Well then, speak to an officer to buy it for you. For a donation to the FC vault of 10Gil per FC point, you can have the FC purchase the item on your behalf. The gil goes right back into the FC vault to finance guild events.

The FC airships and submarines are in full force, bringing back tons of items for the FC to use. To see what they are bringing back, check out the blog posts on aie-guild.org.

That’s all for now, and enjoy your adventures in AIE and in Eorzea!

STO

There is a Fleet Night tonight at 8:30 PM Eastern.

The First Contact Event is still going on. This finishes up on April 30th. The new patrol for the event has a few neat easter eggs in it.
Starting April 24th and going through May 4th, the winter event will be coming back. Who thought it would snow in April. Damn it Q.

There is a free Medical Pack giveaway going on to honor all the RL healers of the world. The pack includes a new vanity shield that gives your starship a nice white and red look, a new Admiralty card, the USS Hope and special EMH. The Klingons get a female Orion EMH, while Starfleet gets a Dr. Bashir EMH.

Finally, we are still making progress on our Spire, Embassy and K-13 projects.

LOTRO

On Sat. April 25th SNL will be at a special time. It will be 9-11 eastern or 8-10 Max time. On the 25th we will be doing PvMP. For more details check the blog post or message Maellung Arrowshield on discord.

All instances, skirmishes and quest are still Free to Play until the 30th

https://aie-guild.org/blog/2020/04/lotro-this-saturday-we-are-the-rising-shadow/

And with that, let’s get back to Syreyne and Fezgig and find out what’s going on in WoW.

GAME NEWS

CLOSE
Guests put show notes here
Sy: So before we get started on WoW news, this is the first time Fez has joined us on the Podcast. I just have a few important questions to ask……
Pancakes or Waffles?
Favorite Class in WoW?
Crispy or Wiggly Bacon?

Sy: Horde side is going great! We have a lot of raid teams pushing AotC and mythic. And we’ve had some raid teams coming back! Shout out to Filthy Casuals!. Speaking of them, Gusty has teamed up with some of their leadership to come up with an idea! The XP boost is great for leveling allied races right now, so they are asking people to group up together in guild chat, call it Filthy Leveling, and get those alts to 120 before Shadowlands.

Our current co-guild is Comitas, but we’re getting close to 500 in there. Once we do, we’ll be picking a new co-guild to set up for invites. Keep an eye in discord over the next few weeks for an announcement when that change happens.

Last weekend we had a FIRST in WoW in a long time!!! Noob raid ran TWO raid groups at the same time! Team One with Kini got 4 bosses down and Team Alpha with Sy (that’s me!) got 3 bosses down. So really, Noob got 7 bosses last week. We had about 40 people. Last night we killed 8 bosses and had 42 people!

Fez: Alliance side AIE Virtus celebrated it’s 1-year anniversary in March, with over 290 characters.

Recruiting: New people/alts joining just about everyday. It’s interesting how many AIE horde side are still unaware of the Ally team.

Hell Froze Over (HFO) raid team: Full 20 on Friday night – Normal Ny’alotha. Wrathion’s RNG gave us a little grief, then we finished off strong with one-shots Prophet, Maut, Dark Inquisitor, Hivemind. Took a couple of attempts at Ra-Den – team learning strat. People are still getting gear so we are continuing fresh runs each week. We have never turned anyone wanting to join away. We just ask for a minimum ilvl 410 and rank 1 cloak. We raid Friday night at 8pm-11pm ET and have many cross-realm friends, so all are welcome.

Mention at the End by Sy: Remember you can always find the guild officers in Discord in the #lfo channel or by pinging them @officers. And you can always request WoW guild invites via the in-game system by searching “alea iacta est” on both the Horde and Alliance sides, even if there are no officers online. Just remember, you have to go back to Guilds & Communities (J) to accept the invite once an officer approves it.

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

@SyreyneAIE on Twitter

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. Mew is at @themewkow.

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

No segments this week, but we are always accepting submissions!

Next time, we’ll be talking to the mistress of floor tanking herself, Kini about AIE in ESO. So until then, AIE…

– This is Tetsemi:

ESO
Jesters festival is on, started on 26 March, so come throw pies at the leaders of the factions, enjoy double experience points by eating Mayhem Pie, and in general be silly!

The Jester’s Festival runs through April 2nd. And starting on April 2nd is the Anniversary Jubilee! ESO is 6 years young this year, come out and bake a cake, enjoy double EXP, and reap the rewards from Daily crafting writs, daily Delve and world boss quests, Daily dungeon quests, and so much more. Added this year is the new Icebreath INDRIK mount and a new armor style.

FFXIV
The FFXIV chapter of AIE is growing and wants you!

Fun nights are Tuesday and Thursday at 9:30pm EST.

Tuesdays are casual and legacy content. It is more relaxed and gives a chance for people to see some content that may not be possible solo or something that groups do not normally form for anymore. Last week, we did some Heavensward Bismark, for pony farming!
This week, we plan on running Ravana, also from Heavensward.

Thursday, we do more traditional end game raiding. We are currently gearing up via Eden’s Verse. We ask that potential raiders join our raid discord. Raids do have a signup each week.

Saturday, Kelseer is running map nights for fame, riches, and overall fun! Join us at 9:30pm EST Saturday to run 8 player treasure maps. For those not aware, this is a very profitable and very fun and unique game activity.

In the crafting front, we are working on new airship and submarines in the guild workshop, that anyone in the FC can help build. See the AIE website at aie-guild.org for the latest Workshop blog post for the details.

If you are looking to get into the game, the Winter Sale is on for 40% off either just the Shadowbringers expansion or the complete edition from the Square Enix Store. A free demo is also available. If you do pick it up, remember to drop by the #ffxiv channel for a refer-a-friend code for rewards for both of you.

We can’t wait to see you in Eorzea and the First!

LOTRO
LOTRO Bonus Days bring you +10% Virtue XP and Bilbo’s Birthday, now through April 6th!

Hobnanigans returns next week! Starts on March 31st and runs through April 5th.

The Spring Festival continues through April 13th!

Find Your Shadowfax! Get 20% off:
Select Warsteeds
Riding Skills

The Weekly Coupon gets you a free Skill and Slayer Deed Boost with the Coupon Code SKILLUPSLAYER, now through April 2nd!

STO
Still working on the Spire is the priority, with the embassy being the secondary one to build up.

Regular Fleet nights on Sunday nights at 830 pm Eastern starting next week.

Come join us for all the fun and watch Picard and Discovery as CBS All Access is free for the month.

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

GAME NEWS
On rare weeks during the year, an opportunity presents itself for one of several planets to be conquered. It’s tricky to know when to go for it and which planet to pick. And after that it takes effort by everyone in the guild throughout the week to succeed. Luckily our team has some big brains that can make good decisions and lots of willing hands to pitch in. Now we can all proudly wear our Conqueror of Nar Shaddaa titles!

MFNs continue to rock and roll on Tuesdays at 9PM Eastern. Everyone is welcome. Lots of stuff is level independent, as long as you don’t mind, you know, dying and stuff. For some parts of it, your character might need to be level 50+ or 70+, but come hang out with us in voice while you level.

March MEGA was a World Boss Crawl which is always a lot of fun–good company, romping around the galaxy, and perhaps some progress on that vehicle mission that’s been in your log forever.

Mega!!!
April 10th 9pm eastern (Real World Time)

Corley has taken over this month’s mega! He will be bringing back “The Amazing Race!”

Come join in traveling the galaxy with us!!!

Discussion Question:

Several games do or used to do a base class to a certain level (with or without story) and then you unlocked your advanced class. WoW/Classic did this around level 10, SWTOR used to do this around level 10, FFXIV does this at level 30. Do you like this type of advancement and does it make the games more interesting to have it, or do you prefer to just jump in at the start and have the same class to max level?

CLOSE

And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Sema for joining us. And don’t forget, after the show is the AIE podcast stream, this week they are doing:
