The guys are joined by ALL of the members of The Deathstar Troopers! They’re the SWTOR raid team that Marcus runs on Sunday evenings. The roster includes: Dr. Swtor, Ted, Beaux, Slayer, Katerina, Kione, and Ven! They talk about how everyone got started with running operations, and why they all love it so much!

NOMADS
Division 2
The game’s first season is now well underway with the first manhunt target, “Neptune,”completed by most players. New “league” and “global event” play is now live.

Leagues consist of certain timed challenges that confer ranks for better completion times in missions. These ranks translate into rewards bestowed by claimed crates in the league menu. Collect seasonal items and even an exotic.

This global event that went live last week, “Polarity Switch,” consists of switching between active colors displayed on your character to defeat correspondingly colored mobs in the game. Reward caches are conferred after completing challenges such as “eliminating positive polarity Outcasts,” or other factions, etc.

The next manhunt target, “Venus,” goes live on the 31st, along with the next apparel event, “Urban Jungle.”

Some excitement surrounding the game has died down as it’s been struggling with many bugs and game balance issues — some directly related to the new season’s events. Despite that AIE participation is still reasonably high, averaging 18-20 people online per day.

WoW
HFO got Puppy!! 6/12 normal. Still recruiting and we got a Zod!!!

BLTN got AoTC

Noob Raid is now 4/12 in Ny’alotha

100% XP, leveling those allied races is crazy!!! People are leveling alts at all stages and looking for people to hang out. (Mechagnomes are so OP!!!)

Alliance guild is going strong! More and more people are joining and playing on Alliance side.

WoW Classic

SWTOR
See Game Notes

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!

Double Bonus Points are now available! Get double the Bonus Points in the LOTRO Store in-game through April 5th!

Find Your Shadowfax! Get 20% off:
Select Warsteeds
Riding Skills
Select Mounts
Movement Speed Buffs
Now through April 2nd!

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:

@AIESema
@MaxTheGrey

NOMADS
Division 2
Division 2 launched their first expansion to the game: Warlords of New York which picks up with the storyline from the Division 1 as Agents return to New York.

The level cap has raised to 40 and new content is live with the introduction of seasons to the game’s road map. New seasons will occur every three months and contain rewards and special manhunts for rogue agents that continue the Division story.

– HFO is still recruiting. We’re up to roughly 15 members and we’re 5/12 in normal.
– Reminder that we’re on Alliance side and we want to boost numbers. New alts, transfers, and cross-realm friends are all welcome!
– Gusty’s Trial of Style event is next week!
– Horde Raid teams are kicking butt and taking names!

WoW Classic
Our bag supply is currently low. If anyone is able to donate mats or completed bags, please mail them to Nevermore! We want to make sure our AIE Guildies have bag space while they adventure in WoW Classic! 🙂

AIEMounts is still running but slowed down.

A guildie in classic at level 7 made a plea for bags so Lars jumped onto his Tailor and made 4 x “Small Silk Pack” for them (lucky the AH had some heavy leather) and delivered it right to them in Mulgore. Was happy to see the request and help out.

STO
The big news is that the Fleet Embassy’s Diplomacy Rank is leveling to Tier 2. It will be complete in 5ish days. It unlocks a couple of things, most notably, Threat-Scaling Science Consoles Mark 11. We are continuing to also work on getting the Fleet Spire’s Research to Tier 2.

Notable in the game event is Battle of the Binary Stars. If you complete this daily 14 times before March 26th, you get a new Universal Kit for you Captain, DOT-7 Drone Fabrication. This allows your captain to create a combat pet while off on away missions to assist you in fighting whatever you encounter. This event also counts towards the new T6 Ship Event Campaign. Over the course of a few Events you earn progress towards getting a choice between:
– 100% Discount Coupon for a Tier 6 Starship or Warbird and 200 Lobi Crystals(A in game currency)
or
– 1000 Lobi Crystals
LLAP

SWTOR
In SWTOR, MFNs continue with rampages, operations, and anything else we can think of. All are welcome.

Last Friday, we had our March MEGA. Marcus led us on a World Boss crawl. It’s like a pub crawl, but with a little more boss killing. Officers posted themselves all over the galaxy so that we could summon the group to each boss. It was great fun. Stay tuned for more info on the next MEGA.

FFXIV
Ishgard Restoration Part 2 has been released with the latest patch. It re-re-introduces the Diadem as a place to gather materials unique to the restoration effort. Whether you’re a novice gatherer or crafter or a seasoned vet, you can still help out and gain rewards and experience.

SWTOR
Star Wars: The Old Republic launched on December 20th, 2011. AIE was there. In fact, the swtor division of AIE was formed even before that, since Bioware allowed for the creation and registration of guilds ahead of launch. But, if we take that Dec 20th date as our start date, that means we are less than 2 years away from our 10th anniversary. Just saying. That should be a party, right?

For this month’s MEGA, Corley is bringing back The Amazing Race! That’s right!! It’s coming back!!! Who wants to race around the galaxy? Join us on March 13th, 9PM Eastern.

We continue to run our MFNs on Tuesday nights. We are currently switching MFN/Conquest focus weekly between Imperial and Republic sides. Because of how Bioware’s event calendar works, that means event weeks always fall on the Imperial side. We are going to introduce a slight stutter to our calendar so that both sides can share equally in the easier Conquest objectives that come with event weeks. As always, it will be posted in the Guild Message of the Day as well as in discord. And failing that, you can always just come into voice at 9PM on a Tuesday and ask!

ESO
Update 25 and the Harrowstorm DLC launched last week. The patch was basically a full re-download of the entire game, but it basically overhauled the way the game client works and provided performance improvements.

For MFN on Friday, we split into two groups to run the new dungeons that were included in the Harrowstorm DLC. Icereach is themed around a coven of evil witches and Unhallowed Grave is themed around evil Necromancers and monsters. Unhallowed Grave also has a “secret” room that you can get to by killing a couple of optional bosses.

For MFN this coming Friday, which is at 9pm EST as usual, we will be splitting up again to run the new dungeons since we only managed to get through one of them this past week due to time constraints.

FFXIV
We’re continuing to host Treasure Map Night, aka Kelseer’s Get Rich Quick with Friends scheme, at 9:30 eastern each saturday. The only requirements are being level 80. Everyone can roll need on everything.

FFXIV’s raid team, “NoD” has slots open! We’re currently doing extreme trials on Thursdays at 9:30 eastern and more casual content on Tuesdays.

With Patch 5.2, a new raid has been released, Eden’s Verse, along with a new tier of gear from both it and dungeons. Soon, an expansion of crafting content will be released and the first step of the relic weapon for Shadowbringers. Keep an eye in our discord for upcoming events based on the new content!

STO
We recently updated the fleet Uniform. Updates to fleet holdings are progressing. The focus is currently The Spire. Hopefully, soon, a new version of Fleet nights will be coming back. (Schedules are just hectic right now)

GW2
Guild news… the World Boss run happened last night and had a handful of people attending

LOTRO
New to the lotro store crafting carry alls in small, medium and large sizes. Coming in April, PvMP guild event, we will play as the monsters, stay tuned to the lotro channel for more details

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

GAME NEWS

Marcus- thann was trying to buy trash items to win sema san diego. What a great week.
Deathstar troopers has been running HM TOS. progging
Looci – and he created a bidding war in general chat for some of the trash items, at one point I think fangs were at 60K per fang!

Everything is awesome!

One of the Devs posted that we will be getting some “crazy stuff” in 2020, so speculation is rife. The most likely ideas are that Darth Malgus will sprout tentacles and come under the power of the Old Gods and we will get Lalafells as a playable race.

If you are a subscriber and have not logged in super recently, hop in and find the Umbaran Patrol Tauntaun in your mailbox. If you are not a subscriber yet, you have til Feb 29th to subscribe and earn this mount.

We’ve had two MFNs since the last AIE podcast including one particularly wild and wooly trip into The Terror from Beyond. We had run out of time for the last fight, but we had some people with us that had never seen it, so we decided to barge in and just take a look. It’s a multi-phase, positioning-heavy battle, so it was more of a lark than anything, but we won anyway! And that was with two healers disconnecting over 9000 times… at least.

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

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.

Update 25 is coming soon and will be the start of the year-long Dark Heart of Skyrim adventure. It will bring performance improvements and a patching overhaul as well as the first DLC of the year called Harrowstorm. Harrowstorm will have new item sets and collectables as well as 2 new dungeons that set up the events of the upcoming Greymoor Chapter. The dungeons will be Unhallowed Grave, a long-forgotten tomb, and Icereach, where you get to confront witches. There is no set date for Harrowstorm yet, but eta is sometime in Q1 of 2020. We know it will be out before Greymoor launches and the release date for Greymoor is May 18th for PC/Mac and June 2 for console.

EVE
Settled in the new home system. Bringing up their lil cubby holes ADM’s so they can truly start doing big boy stuff. Hoots has plans to start making stuff for corpies and corpies are helping by donating needed materials for said process and the coalition is being harassed by russians..again.

LOTRO
They are going to delay the start of SNL until after the podcast is over.

And with that, let’s get back to Abo and Durus and find out what’s going on in Final Fantasy 14

GAME NEWS
First off, congrats are in order for Testsemi, as he has completed the MSQ and is caught up to the current story content in FFXIV. That’s the base game with 5 patches (and some sub-patches), Heavensward, 5 patches and change, Stormblood with its handful of patches, Shadowbringers, and its one major patch.

Remember that there’s still plenty of story content to do after you finish the MSQ! Raids in all 4 expansions, trials, 24-player stuff which is heavy on the story, plot, and intrigue, maps, crafting (yes, even the crafting classes and quests have a story!), and the legend of the world’s greatest detective, Hildabrand! This game is bursting at the seams with content and character! And we’re here to help you make sense of it all.

TALK ABOUT THE WEDDING
Theresa and Viv’s Ceremony of Eternal Bonding is scheduled for Wednesday, 1/29 at 8:00 PM Eastern. Please see either of them or check the FC chest for an invitation that you must possess to enter the event space at the appointed time.

Live Letter Part LVII
Thursday, February 6 at 3:00 a.m. (PST)

Valentione’s Day
Wed, Jan 29 to Sun, Feb 9.
Vote for your colorful “emissary of Love”

In the meantime, we are running a weekly map night, Saturday nights at 8pm until we run out of maps. Map nights are using the treasure maps found from mining, botaning (picking flowers or chopping trees), fishing, or just buying them from the market boards. Using a map will consume the map, but show a little piece of the map from the game with the big red X for the treasure. You then go to that location and dig for treasure. Of course, each chest is booby-trapped, so you will need to fight off a bunch of monsters to get to your treasure. Once everyone in your party gets their loot, there is a chance that a portal to a bonus zone will appear!

This bonus zone is only available thru 8-player treasure maps. Going into the zone seems to act normal. Go in, beat up on some bad guys, get loot. But then the party has to make a choice between two doors. One door leads to the next room, with cash and fabulous prizes await. The other door will set off alarms, sirens, and kick the party out of the dungeon.

The map nights are very casual, super fun, and very profitable. Anyone level 80 can join in. You don’t have to bring a map to join in, but bringing maps helps everyone out.

PATCH PATCH PATCH

FFXIV is wrapping up the current 5.1 patch cycle, and is starting up the hype machine for 5.2.

The even number patches are fun because they have a new gear tier and raid tier introduced. So, as a guild, we tend to do the story mode raids on a regular basis, as that is the difficulty that most people want to do. So, when the patch does hit, expect to have us run some fun nights thru the new Eden tier.

Patch 8.3 Survival Guide
https://www.wowhead.com/news=305319/patch-8-3-visions-of-nzoth-survival-guide-giveaway

The third major Battle for Azeroth content patch, Visions of N’Zoth, will be releasing on January 14th (US) / 15th (EU).

This new content patch will include N’Zoth Assaults in two zones: Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms. N’Zoth has taken over and Corrupted these areas. Taking part in these Assaults will earn you reputation with the Uldum Accord and Rajani and earn you a new currency: Coalescing Visions.

Wrathion returns in this Patch, starting off with a long Introduction Questline that will act as a tutorial for the major systems of this patch. This includes his own legendary cloak Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve and a plan to enter and take down the Horrific Visions of N’zoth.

In addition, new Essences are being added for all roles, as well as new recipes for Professions.

Two new Allied Races are being added to the game: Vulpera for the Horde and Mechagnomes for the Alliance. Allied Race Death Knights are also available this Patch for players who have pre-purchased Shadowlands. Goblin and Worgen Heritage Armor is being added this Patch as well! If you’ve been wanting to transmog Legendary weapons, Patch 8.3 will finally allow you to do so! … except for the Warglaives of Azzinoth, those are still Demon Hunter appearance only. This Patch also helps If you’ve been looking for a unique reward from Island Expeditions, as there are new Salvage Crates which can be bought with Seafarer’s Dubloon. Lastly, the Auction House is getting a much needed rework.

More content is coming later in the Patch on January 21st when Season 4 of Battle of Azeroth begins. This marks the opening of the new Ny’alotha Raid, new PvP Season and new Mythic+ Seasonal Affix, Awakened, as well as Heroic Darkshore. Season 4 will also come with an overall Item Level increase to most systems, with the cap from most systems being 475 except for the final two bosses of Ny’alotha dropping 485 gear.

Mewkow- WoW Classic
https://www.wowhead.com/news=305109/classic-wow-content-drop-on-feb-12th-blackwing-lair-level-50-class-quests-eterna

Blackwing Lair

The Blackwing Lair attunement quest, “Blackhand’s Command”, will become available on all realms tomorrow, Friday, January 10.

Level 50 Class Quests

All players, starting at level 50, can now begin class-specific questlines offered by class trainers in capital cities. These quests conclude with a choice of one of three powerful rare items.

New Reputation Rewards

The Argent Dawn, Thorium Brotherhood, Timbermaw Hold, Silverwing Sentinels, and Warsong Outriders faction vendors now offer reputation reward items that were added in patches 1.6 and 1.7 of original WoW.

Eternal Quintessence

Players who complete “Hands of the Enemy” and reach Revered reputation with Hydraxian Waterlords may now obtain Eternal Quintessence from Duke Hydraxis.

Darkmoon Faire – Coming Earlier in February

The first Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic will get underway in early February, with barkers and the Faire setup appearing on Friday, February 7, and the festivities opening on Monday, February 10. Look for the many Darkmoon Cards that make up the beasts, elementals, portals, and warlords sets to begin dropping from enemies and bosses on Wednesday, February 5.

SWTOR
The holidays in SWTOR were filled with MEGAs, MFNs, snowballs and wookiee hugging. Several guildies were so industrious, they achieved the Wookiee Hugging Champion achievement! Wookiees give the best hugs.

In 2020, we are looking forward to opening the rest of the rooms in both guild flagships, many Operations successes, MFNs galore, MEGAs extraordinaire, Conquest targets met, meetups, trivia, and, of course, lightning

ESO
On January 16th at 5pm EST there will be a Bethesda live stream to reveal the Chapter and year long story. They will have twitch drops live during the stream so you can unlock rewards.
MFN is still on Friday nights at 9pm est where we run dungeons, rampage though zones killing bosses, obtaining sky shards, and looting anything not nailed down, and occasionally jump off cliffs.

FFXIV
We had the first maps night in quite awhile and it was fairly epic. We did level 80 maps, AKA Zonureskin Maps, and reached the final chamber 4 times! That means a +100K payday each time. With total Gil and value of mats dropped in excess of 15M gil.

Map Nights will be a regular Saturday night event going forward, just ping Kelseer on the #ffxiv channel in AIE Discord if you want to join in. Map groups hold about 8 people per team. The Gliderskin maps are more tuned for solo players, if you didn’t want to get a full group.

Raiding will be picking up again soon. Speak with @Durus or @Abovan for details. We’ll likely begin with some of the early extreme fights (Titania and Innocence) to gauge where everyone is, and help gear folks up.

Patch 5.2 is coming in February and includes

-New MSQ (beginning of the end of SHB’s story)
-New Dungeon, “Anamnesis Anyder” (Trust Compatible)
-New beast tribe focusing on gathering, the Qitari
-New Chronicles of a New Era (5.0’s Trials quest chain)
-First Trial will be Ruby Weapon
-New Raid, “Eden’s Verse” (One boss will be related to Ramuh)
-Upgradable Equipment quest series (Relic quest)

EVE
Settled in new home system. Bringing up our lil cubby holes ADM’s so we can truly start doing big boy stuff. Hoots has plans to start making stuff for corpies and corpies are helping by donating needed materials for said process

LOTRO
We finished off 2019 with a lot of fun during SNL. We have stuff planned for 2020. Stay tuned for upcoming details.

And with that, let’s get back to US and find out what’s going on in since the break.

GAME NEWS
Mkallah
I’m a mom, it was christmas time, I was running around from December 12th until December 26th. I think my final count was twelve pounds of marshmallows, ten pounds of fudge, eight batches of various cookies and bars, three pies, one cake, and one batch of rice krispy treats. ANd, that was just the baking, There was also a lot of hiking, cooking, wrapping, and I even slept in a little. I did manage to read two full books- Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow, quickly followed by The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo- because one needs dark modern fantasy dealing with secret magical societies and Yale after 450 pages of the Weinstine investigation.

We had our annual Yule party and our Fert and Friends Christmas eve sushi lunch. We saw Star Wars opening night, and immediately afterwards I got a text from our friend MIlls that he wants to do a Star Wars game taking place 100 years after Rise of the Skywalker and then he gave us the Force and Destiny book for Christmas! I am looking at a Twi’lek Mystic Seer, not good with people, but super connected to the Living Force.

Only one of my D&D groups was semi active this season, but we have managed to get roped into helping a clan of wood elves deal with a mythical monster that has cursed them. And, you know that feeling when you wander into the wrong zone in a video game and almost get your ass handed to you? Yeah, we had that happen.

Mewkow
Still slowly taking down the inside Xmas decorations, the outside were dutifully taken down the weekend after New Year’s Day. Had a decent setup at the new house.

After catching up in the Mandolarian, and seeing the latest saga movie, AND bravely watching the entire Star Wars special (with a little help from riff trax), we have started the clone wars viewing with the intent to complete that 6-7 season show.

Tons of time in FF14 as of late. With about 5 active ‘alts’ in a game that you don’t need to alt in, there is plenty to be done. That means I’ll have done the Shadowbringer MSQ 5 times, and yes it is that good. Also working on dragging others along for the fun when possible. Completed the Eden raids, and the Nier raid a few times, but have not touched the Eden Savage raids yet, and have no desire to go anywhere near the Alexander Ultimate. Explain that fight a bit. Touch on crafting/gathering.

Past week, taking a short break every now and then to poke around FO76. They have the Wastelanders beta coming out this month, and I wanted to be ready to go when that happens. Slowly moving forward in the Pioneer scouts challenges.

Very little time in WoW lately. Seems like the raid scene is on hiatus until the patch. Here’s hoping they solve the absence of tier sets and fix or mitigate the azerite armor.

Tetsemi
Finished the MSQ up through patch 5.1 in FFXIV on my bard, and now working on the Order of the Twin Adder grand company progress as well as leveling up my Red Mage (which is apparently changing a bit in 5.2) as well as my Samurai.

Other than logging in for guild numbers and guild clean up, pretty much took most of December and beginning of January off of WoW, but looking forward to patch 8.3 and if any of the systems will be interesting to me. Oh, I did do the Anniversary LFR with the raid team and got the World Breaker mount, but the pull of FFXIV was too strong to entice me to stay engaged in WoW to do either Korak’s revenge or level any alts.

No D&D on break, however, the group has gotten sucked into the new Force & Destiny system for Star Wars and created a Sentinel Shadow who is hunting down Dark Side force sensitive and force users. Really looking forward to learning a new system and rolling the dice again. Will be the first game our whole family will be playing in that’s not a one-shot, guest appearance, or run this character because the player is out.

Also, we watched all 8 episodes of the Mandalorian, and can’t wait for more. If the Kenobi series is going to be anything like the Mandalorian, especially the two episodes Deborah Chow directed, I can not wait. So ready for some non-Skywalker series that explore more of the Solo and Rogue One type environments and stories, bring it on!

Marcus and Nick are joined by Slayer this week. Nick talks about his experiences playing Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and the group breaks down the first two episodes of The Mandelorian.

Highlights from WCN
2019 was a great year for Working Class Nerds.
-We had an AIE show discussing all the games that we play
– We had the Bioware team on 2 times with Musco and Matt Pucevich on. We broke the news on the first boss in the new operation.
– We had Holly Fields on the show who was Nadia Grell in game. It was so amazing to hear all about voice acting. Also we topped it off getting her to tell us “Shut up Max!”

Guild Highlights
Summer of Love 2019

In WoW we had a World Quest Party, a Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, held our annual Remembrance day the Shrine of the Fallen Hero, COOP’ed the Alliance, and had a lot of fun at Dark Moon Faire!

In SWTOR they held a MEGA Event, a MFN event, and held their Remembrance day in Juran Mountains on Alderaan.

In FFXIV they had a special MFN and met at the Free Company house for Remembrance day.

In STO they held an event on Risa (not Rishi) and met at the Memorial at Wolf 359 for Remembrance Day.

WoW Classic
Nevermore has given us one heck of an update on WoW Classic!

WoW Classic launched just a few months ago on August 26th, 2019 and our Horde AIE Guild on the Pagle server has been thriving! :tada: We are constantly hovering close to the max guild limit of 1000 members. So occasionally we purge characters who have been offline the longest. If this happens to you, just jump back into AIELFO to request an invite again!

We got the guild set up – as soon as server issues allowed! – And were able to nickel and dime… Oh, we mean “silver & copper” our way to 10g to purchase our guild tabard within three days!

We waited a few weeks for guildies to have time to log in and create their characters and then all gathered together for our first huge AIE group photo! :heart:

Special shout out to our AIE Greeters in WoW Classic: Eagle, Kazrik, & Adande! Thank you for helping with invites when an Officer is unavailable. We appreciate you!

A main goal in WoW Classic was to bring back one of the guild’s cherished traditions… the AIE Guild Craft Faire which was held in Undercity on November 17th, 2019!

It wasn’t easy, but we did it! >.< Storage was a huge issue for us without guild banks and very limited bag space. Artisan level mats were extremely limited, mostly because our max level guildies needed them and a lot of members aren’t able to help gather them yet. But overall we had the majority of mats needed for a bunch of guildies to make progress with their professions.

Thank you to everyone that donated gold and mats especially when we only had about a month of prep time before the event!

Huge THANK YOU to the volunteers on the AIE Guild Craft Faire Professions Teams. This event would never have been able to happen again without all of you crazy, dedicated, and wonderful guildies! The amount of time and effort you put into planning and organizing behind the scenes is greatly appreciated. And it means a lot that you offered to help out! :heart:

Since our Craft Faire “test” was successful, we are already planning to host another one sometime in the spring of 2020! We could always use more volunteers… wink wink
Raid planning is happening and we are coordinating with United Orgrimmar and other guilds within the “United Federation of Guilds”. So keep an eye on the WoW Classic Discord channel for more info. And to find out more about a fun unannounced event happening sometime in December!

There’s a lot going on so if you’re interested in playing with us log into WoW Classic and create a Horde character on the Pagle realm! To request an invite in game /join aielfo or ask in the Discord LFO channel because would love to have you with us in WoW Classic!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! And I look forward to all of our adventures in 2020!

FOR THE HORDE!

Love,
Nevermore

AIE Guild Master in WoW Classic

WoW
We started an Alliance branch of AIE on Earthen Ring-US and are gathering folks to raid one night a week on it. If you’re interested, message Syreyne in game or AIE Discord.

We’ve had an influx of new and returning guildies to retail WoW since BlizzCon and a BIG WELCOME to them! Gustytail also really enjoyed the Search for Uuna pet event and intends to do more of these. We will be seeing more of Uuna in Shadowlands, which makes sense because she’s a ghost. Guild events are a lot of fun and we all hope more people take part in 2020.

We had a really great time remembering Ralff with Ralff’s amazing race in February of this year. And it’s an annual event, so look for detail upcoming in January for 2020’s Ralff’s Amazing Race!

Highlights from WCN
2019 was a great year for Working Class Nerds.
-We had an AIE show discussing all the games that we play
- We had the Bioware team on 2 times with Musco and Matt Pucevich on. We broke the news on the first boss in the new operation.
- We had Holly Fields on the show who was Nadia Grell in game. It was so amazing to hear all about voice acting. Also we topped it off getting her to tell us “Shut up Max!”

Guild Highlights
Summer of Love 2019

In WoW we had a World Quest Party, a Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, held our annual Remembrance day the Shrine of the Fallen Hero, COOP’ed the Alliance, and had a lot of fun at Dark Moon Faire!

In SWTOR they held a MEGA Event, a MFN event, and held their Remembrance day in Juran Mountains on Alderaan.

In FFXIV they had a special MFN and met at the Free Company house for Remembrance day.

In STO they held an event on Risa (not Rishi) and met at the Memorial at Wolf 359 for Remembrance Day.

In Eve they got together in Discord to join in Remembrance Day.

In GW2 they had a special MFN, ran dungeons with Maellung, and met at Lion’s Arch on the Field of the Fallen for Remembrance Day.

We dressed up in our best mando armor and had a beach party (of course). Afterwards, we roamed the galaxy wreaking havoc on world bosses. Discussions of the show can be had in the newly reopened Star Wars Spoilers discord channel. We also had a little birthday party for guildie Thaan, sponsored by his two sons. It was a great MFN overall.

FFXIV
Every night is a super awesome crafting night, with the new Ishgard restoration project!
Lots of AIE folks helping each other out with the new crafting systems, and the XP bonuses are HUUGE!

Abo and crew are looking for more people to run on Tuesday and Thursday raiding, no experience required.

We’d love you to be in the FC, but if you are committed elsewhere but are on the Crystal Datacenter, you are welcome to come along.

There is a Fellowship and Cross-world linkshell, as well as the #ffxiv channel in Discord.
Fridays are all request nights, but we need you to make those requests. Making the requests earlier in the week helps us all out in scheduling the events. Things such as optional dungeon unlocks, Alexander or Omega runs, Treasure Maps, Gold Saucer parties are all great ideas. We know you have other ideas that we have never thought of, so let us know so we can all get together for Friday Fun Nights.

Oh, and join us for Copied Factory runs if you are looking for that 2B glamour. We can help you through the encounters, and you will have less competition to get that cosmetic.

Plus the raid is still totally awesome.

ESO
The Undaunted Event in game was scheduled to start this week, but due to technical difficulties it has been disabled. There is currently no eta on when or if it will happen this year.

LOTRO
11/21-11/25 +25% xp boost.

There is stuff in the planning stages no official dates of upcoming guild events. Keep an eye in the #lotro channel for upcoming events

And with that, let’s get back to Grebog and find out what’s going on in STO!

GAME NEWS
Return of The Breach! This TFO (task force operation) event is back. You have until December 3 at 10AM PT. This event is working towards unlocking another free T6 ship on top of the standard event rewards, which is a Universal console.

They have added another Fed and KDF ship, the Strike Wing Escorts. And something that is a strike wing has to have a shuttle bay to hold you wingmen.

And as always, they are always adding more content, like about a week ago, they added three more patrol systems. Kinbar, Nassordin, and Zahl are the newest patrols added.

Fleet Holdings: The fleet is doing great, but as always can use more duty officers and a few other resources.

The colony is working toward completing Tier II in all branches, including the core.
Embassy is working on the Diplomacy Tier II project.
K-13 has been moving along nicely and is almost at Tier II across the board.

Lifetime subscription sale is still going. You have until November 21st to get $100 off. This brings it down to $199.99. And if you are going to spend a decent amount of time in STO, I highly recommend it as you will get your money back just on the 500 zen a month stipend. This is not counting the veteran ships, playable Talaxian, and so much more.

Black Friday is coming and there are always sales from zen bonuses, to zen store discounts.

WoW Classic
Reminder that Sunday, November 17th is the AIE Guild Craft Faire, we are still looking for donations, gatherers, and helpers for the faire. Please contact @Nevermore in #wow-classic channel or in game.

https://aie-guild.org/game-division/wow-classic/wow-classic-aie-craft-faire/

On Sunday November 10th from 1pm Server/Eastern Time until done, Tynchal is organizing a Craft Faire Mats “Raid” beginning at Camp Tarajo in The Southern Barrens. We need lots of Light and Medium Leathers, so we’ll sweep both sides of The Gold Road. This works best to have “tanks” killing and looting with skinners following behind cleaning up. Depending on the “tanks” strength, a skinner/healer would be welcome. Please comment here with your abilities if you can attend. The Camp Tarajo plan is to work all the way toward Razorfen Crawl, whacking pig men as well as beasts. Then up the other side of The Gold Road, starting with the excavation site and all the way up to The Northern Barrens finding harpies, kolkars, more pig men and beasts, beasts, beasts. If there are enough raiders, the plan is to split up into areas. We should be able to gather cloth as well as LW mats and anyone who is a flower picker (lots of Briarthorn) or miner can pick and dig undisturbed. Come one, come all! Tynchal’s CF bank alts will all be in Rachet at the bank to accept LW mats. Hope to see you at Camp T!

SWTOR
Onslaught is now live and it has really been a game changer. The new gearing system is in full swing. Each piece of new gear you acquire is bind-to-legacy, so as your main gears up, your alts can equip the discards. In most situations, loot is determined according to your gear level, so alts don’t have to start over at point zero. It’s a pretty deep system that will grow in complexity and variation at end game gear level. But for simple vertical gearing it’s very easy to understand and be successful at.

Leveling from 70 to 75 can be accomplished through the story and does not take long at all. By the end of the story, you will have full 268 gear. Equip every upgrade you get so that the gearing system gives you more upgrades!

The launch went pretty smoothly with only one server restart about an hour after launch. Not to say there haven’t been bugs–Like the Imperial travel option that lands you in a Republic base! Or the bug where the group finder puts your 8 man team into a 16 man Operation. Fun times!

Crafting and crew skills also got a bit of an overhaul. Crafting is truly not for the faint of heart this time around even though it was tweaked somewhat after feedback on the public test server.

Players can now purchase the HK-55 chapter from the Cartel Market. It gives you access to a special chapter of gameplay and then account-wide access to HK-55 as a companion.

During MFN on launch day, the guild concentrated on leveling. That weekend Marcus put together an opsalong to help everyone with gearing. Throughout the week we’ve been running flashpoints to that same end.

MEGA this month will be on Friday November 15th at 9PM Eastern where we will do Onslaught stuff!

Ops teams are looking forward to trying out the new operation, “The Nature of Progress”, when we get our gear levels up. But, in the meantime there is a lot to do!

BCavanagh has updated the Conquest calculator for 6.0 – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GoP6oVUROvpujs70ro6pSP3yH-Ez_zRYGnyEVViWEs8/edit?usp=sharing

FFXIV
Tuesday 10pm est – Casual 80 content
Wednesday 10pm – Midweek- MFN – leveling and MSQ dungeon focus
Thursday 10pm est – Extreme, Savage, Ultimate night, aka Wipe Night for progression. SIGN UPS REQUESTED!!!
Friday MFN 10pm est. – All member request. MSQ, dungeon unlocks, legacy raids, old and new content, fashion help, maps, or other content.

Patch 5.1 has hit and a ton of new features were added for solo and group play.

1) New MSQ quests including the new dungeon, The Grand Cosmos.

2) the 1st 24-player raid, inspired from Nier Automata, The Copied Factory. This raid will be a future event at the MFN coming soon and this raid is AWESOME!!!

3) Hades Extreme is now available for higher end raiders. It’s difficult is in-between eden savage 2 and 3. Coming soon to a Thursday night raid night.

4) Put the crafting to use to help out other FC members or help with the FC submarine craft! 10 new zones for the FC sub to explore has been added. Check out the workshop in the FC house to see how you can help out.

5) New Beast Tribe Daily quests. Help faeries, get loot. XP scales from 70-80, so a great alt job leveling mechanic.

6) New performance updates! This is the custom music feature in the game to show off player created music. New instruments, a new music trainer to show you how to play some fan-favorite songs, and an ensemble mode to play music synced as a group. Time to get the band back together!

7) New Fellowship system! These are groups, up to 1000 members (far greater than linkshells, or even FC’s) that allow for cross server communication, polls, posts, discussions, and announcements. Drop by the #ffxiv channel to get an invite. Since this is not server or FC membership dependent, you can still join to hear about AIE events even if you are committed to another FC. You still need to be on the Crystal data center however.

STO
Jem’hadar veteran rewards are now available to lifetime subscribers. This includes a Jem’hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer.

Lifetime subscription sale going on now until Nov 21st. $100 off, so it is currently $199.99.

Also, until November 14th you can create Gamma Recruits again. This gives you added rewards for meeting various goals. The rewards are account wide for most of the rewards.

Also, black friday is coming, so if you have had your heart set on a ship or something else in the C-store, every year there are sales around black Friday. Time to buy more ships than you know what to do with…

EVE
Settled for the most part in our temporary home, sounds like coalition will be moving again end of the year to our new temporarily permanent home (cuz its eve). Sounds like a new coalition maybe a reality (opsec maybe?)

Speaking of Eve, or those to play Eve, Huck’s daughter is currently in labor so he’s gonna be a first time Grandpa! Sounds like Grandpa Huck is gonna need some Isk to buy diapers!

GW2
The new build template system has arrived! Be sure to log in and claim the free build slot expansion (and revive orb) from the gemstore! It is uncertain how long the free boost will remain there. There have been many complaints to Arenanet about their…uh…enthusiastic triple monetization scheme and they are taking the resulting player feedback “under consideration”.

In case you haven’t finished the achievements yet, the running Shadows of the Mad King Halloween event ends on Nov 5th around noon PST

And from the last Arenanet livestream, we have been told that the first chapter of the Icebrood Saga, “Whisper In The Dark” is due for release on November 19th

LOTRO
The Minas Morgul expansion was pushed back and is scheduled to be released on November 5th. The Havestmath was also extended through November 11th. SNL still going great from 7:30-9:30 Max time on the landroval server.

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

GAME NEWS
The Dragonhold DLC patch launched October 21st which is the final segment for the Season of the Dragon. It brought a new zone, new main and side quests, and some nice base game improvements.

The Witches festival was extended an extra week and the usual MFN mentions.

ESO
The two recent prologue quests (we did them as part of MFN the week they launched) are part of the base game and lead up to the opening on Southern Elsweyr which will be the new location available with the Dragonhold DLC which comes out on October 21st for PC/Mac. The new area is about the size of Clockwork City and has the continuation of the Season of the Dragon’ main quest, new delves, and of course new side quests. There will be new plant life and unique beasts that roam the area which had a near-apocalyptic past. Most of the dragons that were released stayed in the northern part of Elswyer, however some did venture to the southern area and there will be two new types of dragons to hunt (storm and frost types).

MFN is till every Friday night at 9pm est. We run dungeons, do zone clears of skyshards, kill world bosses, and take part in events.

The next event should be the Witches Festival which will probably have an exp buff as well as the berries and feather for the Indrik mounts.

STO
Another free T6 ship token project has started. And the Kobayashi Maru event has started and goes until November 7th.

EVE
Just getting settled into our new home. Move ops (evacuation) is setting down.

GW2
Shadow of the Mad King event is live through November 5. Shadow of the Mad Kings is the Halloween event. New skins and infusions this year, as well as the previous rewards. The candy corn gobbler and the home instance candy corn node are back for convenient (if semi-random) buffs!

LOTRO
Minas Morgal is still available for pre-sale. The new expansion is scheduled for an October 29th release date. If you have pre-purchased Minas Morgul the new race, Stout-Axe Dwarves is available to play right away. Harvestmath festival is currently running through November 5th.

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

GAME NEWS
It’s the weekend before the dawn (or early afternoon–or possibly late evening) of the launch of Onslaught. People are tidying up their inventories, finishing up any quests they may have lurking in their logs, and spending all the currencies that are going away. The new expac, which comes this Tuesday the 22nd, will have a city in a hollowed out asteroid, a return to the ancient planet of Onderon, a new Operation, a new flashpoint, a new race, 5 more levels, new crafting, and new things to discover. New characters will emerge and new stories. If you are thinking of trying swtor, this week might be the week. Not too long ago, restrictions on free-to-play were greatly relaxed, too.

On Saturday of this week, AIE will be involved in an epic Operations crawl where loot will fall like rain. Seriously, there is a lot of loot to be had. The ops are synched to level 70, so you won’t have to get to max level to join in. The new Operation, which is a longer term goal, will be set for level 75.

Tonight and tomorrow (Sunday and Monday) are the last two days of a galaxy-changing cartel market sale. You can get deals on character names, slots and appearance options, decorations for player housing, companions, pets, dyes, armors, and lastly, unlocks. If you have that toy (or emote, or light saber crystal,or or or)you love to use, but have not unlocked for all your characters, you still have time. The sale lasts until Monday night.

Optional topics depending on where the conversation goes:
Deeper dive on what’s in the expansion
How we prepared (or failed to finish preparing) this week
What we expect the next month or two to be like for AIE in SWTOR
AIE SWTOR stuff like ops teams, MEGA, MFN, Conquest and how it all continues to work
RoS last trailer coming tomorrow night, tickets also go on sale
