The Witches Festival starts on Thursday October 18th and runs until Thursday November 1st. There will be a 100% XP buff as well as a lot of creepy themed items. Boss kills will drop Plunder Skull containers which can contain motif pages, masks, recipes, and style materials, among other Witches Festival themed items.
This event will also offer a chance to acquire Event Tickets to redeem for an Indrik Feather. Once you’ve collected all four of the unique Indrik Feathers over the course of the rest of the year, you’ll be able to get the new Indrik mount.(edited)
During MFN this coming Friday, we will take advantage of the Festival and use the cauldron to turn ourselves in to undead and roam Tamriel killing bosses, running delves, clearing dungeons, and basically just wreaking havoc on the Dremora to collect as many of the event items as we can.

GAME NEWS
Gaming with Guildies
Zod: We want to formally invite the AIE Podcast hosts to our show for some live gaming action and shenanigans. Also, if anyone is interested in being on the show, please let Syreyne or myself know. You can ping us on Discord or on Twitter. You don’t have to be an officer, or even in WoW. We want to get to know you…our community.
Sy: We’ve done SWTOR, EVE, and Overwatch too. Or if you play one of our other game divisions, that’s cool too! We’re always up for trying new things! Or, if you have a suggestion of who to invite to the show, let us know that too!
.
Running of the Beef 15: Zandalar Forever
Zod: This time around is the Running of the Beef #15, code name “Zandalar Forever”. Over the years, we have done everything from the original tauren to Gerp and Henry to Lanc and Bronies to our special Ralff edition. This time, we are doing trolls in honor of the newest WoW expansion, Battle for Azeroth, and Princess Talanji. The event is on Sunday, October 21st.

Sy: We know many of you are full up on Earthen Ring, so we are running on the Ravenholdt US server. Because we had sharding aka phasing issues last time, we are asking everyone to level their troll to 10 in advance so we can group up as a raid. With full heirlooms, this only takes about an hour to do. So you have one week to create and level those trolls!

Zod: We are starting with the meetup and guild invites at 1pm Eastern. The guild name for this Running of the Beef is “Bwonsamdi Forever”. We do have a guild crest, so if you are inclined to buy a guild tabard in Orgrimmar, go for it. But it will cost 1 gold from the vendor. Unfortunately, with the change that made tabards Bind on Pickup, we can no longer pre-purchase them to hand out anymore. If you really really want the tabard, the easiest way is to get the gold for it is to create a DK and do some of the starting area quests.

Sy: Make sure that after you hit level 10, you hearth back to the very first zone-in starting area, aka the beach. We are going to start there. That’s also where we will do the guild and raid invites. At 2pm Eastern, we are going to roll out. We have all kinds of fun and cool things to do, so have your S.E.L.F.I.E. cameras hot-keyed and your twitter linked up to battlenet. We’re going to use #aieguild and #RotB15 to share our “photos” with the whole community.

Zod: In the past, we’ve had bodyguards to help us through higher level zones. This time around, we are doing things a bit differently, so we won’t need the guards to follow us. Don’t worry! I’m pretty sure some of you will still die. It is tradition after all.

Sy: If you are interested in seeing the formal invitation for Running of the Beef, or the full list of previous themes, check out our blog post on the AIE website! https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/09/running-of-the-beef-zandalar-forever/

Upcoming Events
Zod: The WoW guild has been setting up once-a-month guild wide events. October is obviously our Running of the Beef. But we taking a break for November due to this little thing called Blizzcon and of course, the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving. We have some great ideas for events coming up, including hitting up some older expansion raids.

Sy: To help with all these new events, we’ve started a new Events Committee to help out. If you have ideas for new events that we can do, whether in WoW or in other gaming divisions, please let the officers know. You can always find us in Discord in the #lfo chat channel, or you can email us at officers@aie-guild.org.

Zod: We’ve had some great fun over the last few months with the Hide and Forsaken, Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, Trial of Style, and Pirate’s Day Warmode (and Sy’s pirate themed sad jokes!). We want to keep the fun and momentum going!

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

The fleet can always use more personnel and resources for the fleet holdings. We are still making decent progress on the various holdings and every little bit helps.

The Spire is closing in on Tier 2 of research wing, which will unlock one of the better tactical consoles in game for everyone. The operations wing is also closing on on getting its big Tier 2 project unlocked as well. And then once we complete the Tier 2 research, we will also be able to work on the overall spire’s tier 2 project, which will unlock the fleet versions of the 1000 day veteran ships.

This week was Republic side for conquest. We hit the large goal yesterday.

For MFN, we had a prep team start Scum and Villainy an hour before so that as a 16-person team, we could finish it. The operation has 7 bosses. The prep team got the first 5 down. Special thanks for the idea goes out to Zen.

Next week will be the Imperial side for conquest.

Patch 5.9.3 is dropping this week with a new Huttball map and the start of a week of double XP and CXP.

Thank you and welcome all new members to the guild. We have had a ton join in the last month. Just want to say we’re happy to have them!

1) Got exalted with all Horde BfA reputations, still working on 2 Alliance ones to Revered.
2) Horde Raid team got the first three bosses down in Uldir on Normal Mode
3) Completed the Jaina storyline on the Alliance side, including the Siege of Boralus Mythic (15 wipes on the final boss)

Team Positive moment – See # 3 above. Three DPS queued up for Siege, we got a wonderful priest healer who was fighting their addons for dispelling and went through two tanks (I play DPS on the Alliance side) before finally getting the final fight down correctly. The three DPS and the healer were steady, kept discussing what we were doing wrong, without blame, and got ourselves sorted and finally got it! No spoilers, but the final cinematic is definitely a wow moment. Very nice to put a cap on that story line.

Dear Blizzard, please add in a Ferry Master whistle!

Mobile
Lots of Pokemon Go! Got all but one regional (still looking for a Lapris)

Starting playing a new mobile game – Dragalia Lost (think Final Fantasy + Blizzard Game on Mobile)

For Azeroth!

Shout Outs
Mkallah – Personal shout out to an old school guidie and friend named Bouvi and his lovely fiance, who are getting married next Sunday! And, happy belated birthday to Rabbit/Ondata/Arra who celebrated the big 40 this week! We also have a very special shoutout for the next show that brought tears to my eyes!

STO
Crypitc/Perfect World announced that coming this fall will be “Age of Discovery.” We will get to see many of the Star Trek: Discovery show story put into game. They even mentioned in the release they will have a new starting experience for captains wanting to create a Discovery Federation captain.

My guess is that it will be similar to the creation of TOS captains. They may also add in a similar system to those captains for bonus rewards that you unlock account wide.

The crystalline catastrophe event is going on for special rewards.

The fleet is still progressing on various holdings, but can always use more duty officers for the various holdings.

Other than that, I think we have had many distracted by a burning tree and fighting on the islands.

EVE

GAME NEWS
(Kelseer) – Wolfhunter is live! Ever want to be a werewolf? Now is your chance as Werewolves have been updated to be more effective.

The recent patch that happened when the Wolfhunter DLC went live also added in a few other changes such as a new Battlegrounds map, some Alliance War changes, a new Skill respec update, and improvements to the Werewolf Skill Line. The Skill respec improvements are the change I was most looking forward to because it makes respecing more affordable. You don’t have to remove all skills and start from scratch, you can just remove the ones you don’t want and use those points elsewhere.

MFN happens every Friday around 9pm Eastern.

Mandatory Fun Night will be on the Republic side this week, and the format for which side it which week has shifted. Right now it’s going to be every other week with an occasionally free-for-all rest week thrown in. Make sure you pay close attention to AIE Discord and the #swtor channel.

And a big thank you, from MarcusB, to everyone that participated in the MEGA event to kick off the Summer of Love. Without you, events like this don’t happen.

Take a look at the SWTOR update just published – https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/08/swtor-state-of-the-galaxy/

ESO
Wolfhunter DLC releases August 13th in tandem with Update 19, bringing 2 new dungeons to explore.
Update 19 makes some changes to battlegrounds and PVP as well as some quality of life changes.

Skill respecs are changing so you no longer have to clear all your points and fully rebuild. You will be able to change them individually, sort of like how it works with Champion Points. Also the werewolf skill line is being updated as well.

And of course MFN is Friday Nights at 9 Eastern.

GW2
It’s the last couple days for the current event, the Festival of the Four Winds. There is a Boss Blitz Bonanza this weekend, where if the players complete 5000 Boss Blitzes in the pavillion, any account that participated gets a prize. https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/weekend-boss-blitz-bonanza/
MFN is on Monday from 9:30 pm to 11:30 pm EDT, if there is interest we can do festival events before they are gone.

EVE
The Eve Team has lit cynos and bridged to the System of AZ-R0F. As such there are rumors that things are burning in a most Eve kind of way. Expect an Eve inspired Raid team to to go out in the next few weeks.

AIEU along with its alliance Blades of Grass and coalition members have successfully defended the strategic system of 16AM-3. This great military and morale victory has ensured that the our space way of life endures. – AIEU Ministry of Truth, Love and Happiness

FFXIV
The Monster Hunter World collaboration is underway. If you are level 70 in at least one class, and have the Main Scenario Quest for Stormblood completed, be sure to find the Hearty Hunter in Kugane to get started. This event features a major creature named Rathalos, and if you can defeat him and the other challenges, you can get rewards such as a mount, minions, an armor set, and some housing items.
Starting tomorrow, the moonfire festival begins, featuring new outfits, item pieces, an emote, and some summer food.
And don’t forget, there are static groups looking for new members to join and tackle the end game content. Make sure to ask for more details in the FF14 channel in discord.

And with that, let’s get back to us and find out what’s going on in AIE World of Warcraft.

GAME NEWS
Legion Wrap Up
What did we enjoy?

Tetsemi: Class stories, all of them, some of the more unique content they’ve done and really fleshed out all the classes and made them feel special. I really like how the Priest class order hall tied into Before the Storm and seeing those characters come to life in the story. And Artifact weapons, not having to collect a separate 1h and off-hand weapons.

Mewkow:

What did we dislike?

Mewkow:

Tetsemi: Unlocking class hall armor sets on alt’s. The 8 dungeon one was bad enough, but having to get exalted with the Nightborne for the shoulders, no thank you.

What personal goals did we meet?

Tetsemi: I got to see all 12 class order hall stories, got the Protection Warrior appearance from the Mage Tower and unlocked both heritage armor sets for the Highmountain Tauren and Nightborne. Our raid team also completed all the raids, on Normal, while they were still current.

Mewkow:

What personal goals did we miss?

Mewkow: class mounts

Tetsemi: Collecting all the class order hall armor sets. Completing a Mythic 15+ for the artifact appearance. Heritage armor for Void Elves and Lightforged.

What are we not going to miss from Legion?

Tetsemi: Dalaran. We’ve had it as ‘home base’ for two expansion (Lich King and Legion) and I think I’m done with it.

Mewkow:

What are we going to miss from Legion?

Mewkow:

Tetsemi: Class order halls and class specific stories, fighting a foe that’s not the Alliance, and haste tanking. The new Protection Warrior rotation feels slow and clunky and not as fluid as it was in Legion.

BFA Look Ahead
What are we looking forward to the most?

Tetsemi: New stories and new bosses to raid, but mostly new stories.

Mewkow:

Swtor Escape Pod Cast 251: Don’t Fear The Reaper
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-251-dont-fear-the-reaper/

This week, @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-251 are joined by @MarcusB814 (guild member and host of the Working Class Nerds podcast) to run Red Reaper and talk about Datacrons and the monthly event Marcus is running on the 27th.

NOMADS
No Man’s Sky has released a major update to the game 4 days ago. Several changes to the game to include the ability to play together with 3 of your friends. The game is buy-to-play and if you played before, it’s a free update, if not it’s $29.99 on Steam.

WoW
War of the Thorns has started and it’s looking like the Horde are the bad people, at least right now, and Horde players are not happy with the story so far.

Regular Noob Raid resumes October 6th. Normally the only requirements to join are a max level toon and the willingness to laugh a lot while we die over and over again.

A huge thank you to Syreyne and the DOA raid team for running the Noob’ers through Normal Antorus the past two weekends.

ESO
Congratulations, we’re sorry! Dankinia has been promoted to Game Director of ESO!

Midyear Mayhem is happening right now until August 6th. This event gives bonus rewards and XP for PVP activities.

The DLC will be on sale for 75% off for those that do not have it and there will be bonus rewards for a variety of activities in Wrothgar.

STO
Star Trek Online is about to take you into the world of the latest Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: Discovery. This fall on PC, and soon after on Xbox One and Playstation 4, Captains will take the first step on a continuing journey to 2256, in the height of the Klingon War. For the very first time in STO’s history, we’ll be updating the game in line with a currently airing Star Trek series. Here’s what to expect from Star Trek Online: Age of Discovery:

WoW
A quick announcement from Nevermore-
“Hey AIE Guildies in WoW – If you have a raid team that will be active for Battle for Azeroth, please have a raid leader get in touch with Nevermore ASAP She is trying to gather a bunch of information and want to make sure that she’s not forgetting anyone. Message her via Discord, Twitter @QuotedNevermore, or send an in game mail to her main Neverending. Thank you”

With patch 8.0 coming out on Tuesday, everything you know will change … about your characters and how they play. Thankfully WoW Head has a great write-up about the upcoming changes so you’ll be prepared! https://www.wowhead.com/class-guides-battle-for-azeroth-bfa-pre-patch?webhook/how-to-play-your-class-in-the-battle-for-azeroth-8-0-pre-patch-class-guides-for-

Also, if you are returning and your characters were removed for inactivity or you are new to AIE please take a look at https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/07/wow-pre-patch-incoming-so-get-back-in-game/ with all the information needed to get you back in the game and familiar with all the ways AIE publishes information.

Also, with the hiatus of Noob Raid, Syreyne’s raid team is taking Noob raiders through Antorus on July 21st and July 28th starting at 9pm EST for the first raid and 11pm EST for the second raid. More information in the article at https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/07/antorus-tours-for-noob-raiders/

SWTOR
MFN is on Tuesday at 9 pm EST and will be on the Imperial side.
PTS is open to the public and some scheduled PvP playtesting is going on with devs in-game incognito and some of the AIE folks have been participating in said activities.

The Escape Pod Cast did a podcast from inside the new PvP focused stronghold on Rishi on the PTS. Since then, they are continuing to develop and make updates rapidly to respond to feedback. There’s an AIE PTS guild and we have the Stronghold fully unlocked for it for anyone that wants to get in and check it out.

ESO
A reminder that MFN for ESO are on Friday’s at 9pm EST and are usually streamed on the AIE Twitch channel, https://twitch.tv/aieguild

Don’t forget to speak up in guild Chat, ask for help, or just say Hi! And, check the ESO discord channel regularly for events and daily partners.

And, in ESO general news- With the upcoming Wolfhunter DLC game pack and Update 19, Hircine’s curse has taken hold in Tamriel and beyond. Are you prepared to face the March of Sacrifices and Moon Hunter Keep dungeons? Wolfhunter is coming soon to ESO plus members and in the in game-crown store. The pack will arrive with update 19, a free base-game update for all ESO players. More information is available on elderscrolls.online.com

FFXIV
A reminder that MFN for FFXIV are on Friday’s at 9pm EST as well. As far as game news, there is a producer live letter happening on Monday, July 16th. Please look forward to it.

STO
The Sally Ride is somewhere in game. She was last seen near Narenda, but supposed to move around every so often. If you find the ship hail them and you will get a special admiralty version of the ship.

The summer event is in full swing on Risa. There is a free ship for completing the daily aerial courses. There are all kinds of other events from power board races to sand castle building contests. If you don’t have a power board to use at the fleet colony, now is the time to pick one up.

Why would you want a power board? The fleet colony has a big bay. You can run around it on land, but it is easier to hop on your powerboard and cut across the water. If you are doing the gather missions, you have to go to close to the end of each side, so cutting across the water is the fastest method. And no, you can not swim across.

EVE
EVE continues to be on fire, Goons and TEST are allies again, some Keepstars died this weekend while others were were saved, Space Cadets, Hoplite Fleets, Arms Salesmen… it’s been pretty busy.

And with that, let’s talk about what we have been doing in and out of game, and how we’re getting ready for Battle of Azeroth!

GAME NEWS
Mkallah – Lots of pen and paper roleplaying, D&D, World of Darkness (Mage and Werewolf), City of Mists

Tetsemi – Mage Tower (Protection Warrior), Brawler’s Guild (Rank 8), 14 Horde and 2 Alliance characters through Silithus (got 3 pets), finished Field Medic (First Aid), and got both Nightbourne and High Mountain Tauren allied race armor (for leveling from 20-110).

Mewkow – Working on the mage towers, which means lot of alt gearing. Finally ran through the Retribution pally hidden weapon quest. Pally stuff. Shaman, death knight, profs.

Mandatory Fun Night,on Friday’s, continues to be well attended. The guild usually gets together and crashes an open world zone. Hitting world bosses, sky shards, dolmens, delves and public dungeons can be pretty fun so why don’t you join us or watch for http://twitch.tv/thedurus to stream on their channels or otherwise hosted on the AIE Twitch channel.

Guild members are on nearly every night running dailies, and working on the new story content introduced with the recently released Summerset.

SWTOR
Mandatory Fun Night, this week will be on the Galactic Republic side, the conquest event is Relic of the Gree so they will go fight Xenoanalyst, and the Ilum Gree WB and do the Ilum rampage at the same time. Conquest target will be set for Medium on Pub side, and Small on Imp Side. Speaking of which, congratulations to the guild on taking on and meeting the Large Planet goal on the Imp side and the Medium Planet goal on the Pub side last week. A lot of effort was put into that guild activity and it was great to see the guild come together to conquer the goal.

Star Wars Celebration will be in Chicago, April 2019 and tickets are going fast. Last we checked they were 80% sold out and the full event pass was already sold out.

Also, Friday, June 22nd at 8pm central, SWTOR will have a monthly guild event. Guild member Marcus is driving it and plans to take the guild on a rampage, taking down as many world bosses in the game as we can. That’s the first in what will likely be a new series of Monthly events in SWTOR.

The fleet had been making big steps forward on the various holding projects. Also for submitting Umami applications for the new Jem’Hadar, just use the faction federation and race alien.

It is bonus dilithium weekend. So come do queues, mine dilithium, and earn extra dilithium this weekend. The next weekend is going to be upgrade weekend, where tech points are normally doubled from your upgrade kits. This will help you get all your new Jem’Hadar captains and all your old captains their new max level great if MK XV, yes that is correct mk XIII is no longer the top gear level.

The new expansion, Victory is Life had been released. Odo returns with the Dominion to form an alliance with the Federation and KDF. As such, you can now create Jen’Hadar. If you purchase the starter pack you can unlock the Jem’Hadar Vanguard race. They have an added bonus in space combat on top of the default ground bonus of the regular Jem’Hadar. All Jem’Hadar start at level 60. They also are Gamma Recruit, which there are various objectives to complete with corresponding rewards. Many unlock account-wide rewards you can claim on other captains.

The Cardassians are another c-store race as well, as they join the fight. They start at level one and act as another option for races as a standard Captain.

And as with all things there are many new ships and even some old lockbox ships that are now in the c-store. So if you were hoping to get any of the old Jem’Hadar ships or the Cardassian Galor cruiser, you can now just visit the c-store. The Dominion haven’t been sitting idle with their ship technology and offer 4 new tier 6 Vanguard ship variants of all the Dominion ships. The Cardassian also offer 3 new tier 6 Intel ships.

If you are wanting the new vanguard Jem’Hadar ships on other captains, once you level up the ship mastery to the 6th tier, it unlocks account wide

EVE
The “Hobo Wars” between several small alliances and their large super power backers continue and show some signs of gathering strength. Some Hobos have left the area, some have fallen, some have joined larger groups. We are “getting settled” in our current home, have been very active conquering and defending our territory. We have excellent support setup for current pilots and welcome anyone that is curious to join us at our public channel in our AIEU Discord. Check out the #eve_embassy channel in the AIE Discord for more information.

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

More Side stories, including a new 4 Lords side quest.

Return to Ivalice, 24 man raid. 2nd part of the expansion.

The Doman Enclave reconstruction. I’m not saying that Doma was destroyed in an earthquake or a flood or something, but it needs to be rebuilt.

New best tribe, the Namazu. Crafting dailies, scaleable quests to help level your crafters from 60-70. There are now daily quests you can do to level your crafting jobs from 1-70.

Lots of job changes, read the case notes.

Cross server linkshells are a thing.

New Feast season, the ranked PVP.

Cosmetic bonus – Male bunny ears.

If someone is in a hurry and starts a boss fight early, you will be asked to join the fight and not be locked out. Does not let you a) leave the fight and then come back in or b) enter the fight if you are dead or died during the fight.

Lords of Vermillion matches has been updated to include NPC challenges, so a match will always be available.

Chocobo races can be registered for via duty finder, both solo and in groups.

Which leads us into…

The Make it Rain Campaign has started and will run thru July 24th.

Extra MGP will be available on all mini-games in the Gold Saucer!
Earn unique items during the event, including the mini games themselves as housing items to be placed in the house to be played anytime. Fully functioning mini-games, rewarding MGP.

A repeatable quest line that start off as a ghost story, but turns into a cute matchmaker questline.

On May 29th, we got patch 4.31

Adding The Weapon’s Refrain (Ultimate). New challenge raid for high end players, revisiting the Ultimate Weapon from the end of A Realm Reborn. The videos are for this are OMG SO COOL!!

Preliminary patch notes dropped.
Many changes, many QoL, many few features.
And it was the 45th birthday of Yoshi-P, (Naoki Yoshida) the FFXIV Game Producer, and the FFXIV worldwide gaming community created a 2 hour happy birthday video from the players around the world.
Details for all FFXIV news, events, and FC events are found in the FFXIV discord.

ESO
A new expansion called Summerset will be arriving on Mon., May 21st for players on PC/Mac and coming June 5th to PS4 and XBox. It features 6 new areas, a new skill line called the Psijic Order (pronounced Psy – jick), a new Trial (like a raid), Jewelry crafting and much more.

The guild members have been sky shard farming since they know they will want skill points early on for the new jewelry crafting skill line.

STO
In the upcoming new expansion, you will be able to create Jem’Hadar captains. As Jem’Hadar are all cloned for specific paths, this means your new Jem’hadar captain will start at level 60. You will start with a full complement of Jem’Hadar bridge officers, a fully geared ship, and shuttle.

It also says you will also have pre-completed progress in Crafting, Specializations, and Reputations. All players will be able to create Jem’Hadar characters, but they are recommending new players to create a regular captain first to go through the tutorial and learn to play. There is a Jem’Hadar tutorial, but likely be more an introduction to the new features the Jem’Hadar have before they join a faction.

There will also be a special variant of Jem’Hadar that you can purchase in the c-store, Odo’s Vanguard. These are a special premium breed carefully created under the watchful eye of Odo. They are identical as their lesser brethren, with the added bonus that their engineered soldier trait will also give bonuses to space combat.

Romulan captains may be happy to know that coming with the expansion, the Federation and KDF are going to allow the Romulan captains that have allied with them to fly most of their starships. So, if you have a Romulan captain and have been wanting to fly a Defiant class ship, you will soon get that option.

As for the fleet itself. We are currently focusing hard on the Spire holding, but also making steady progress on a few of the other holdings as well. When complete the Tier II of the Research branch of the Spire, we will have access to some of the best tactical consoles in the game.

And with that, let’s get back to Lanctharus and Hoots and find out what’s going on in EVE .
