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

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

October 22 is fast approaching. That is when SWTOR’s new expansion is due to arrive. Currently, the public test server is available and flash points have all been level-synched to reflect the new max level of 75. Bioware is looking for feedback on the difficulty of the flashpoints.

Also, the final PTS achievement is now available for players to earn. If you weren’t able finish the previous achievement, don’t worry. You can continue to work on it throughout this phase as well.

The New York Cantina was this weekend! AIEers including Max, Zen, BC, Marcus, Nick, and Dr. Swtor attended as well as many players from the SWTOR community including Intisar and Kogass. They spent the evening hanging out with the dev team and meeting other players. Zen even got a brunch group together Saturday morning at the Skylight Diner.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

ESO
The Dragon Rise even started on October 3rd and runs until October 14th at 10am est. There are 3 rewards that will be unlocked based on player participation – A Green Dragon Imp pet, a Grim Harvester Costume, and the Dragon’s Treasure Trove furnishing. So far the community has unlocked the Imp and the costume. Activities/events that help with earning the rewards – earn the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement, go dragon hunting and kill dragons in Elsweyr, and complete the two new Dragonhold Prologue quests that unlock on October 8th.

The new Prologue quests are considered part of the base game, so they will be available for everyone when they go live and they lead to the events that will take place in the upcoming Dragonhold DLC that will be out in Q4.

In addition, during the current event, you can earn 2 event tickets per day. Any monster in Elsweyr has a chance to drop one and a boss monster is a guaranteed drop for 1.
Because of the Event, MFN for next Friday will focus on the new prologue quests and/or hunting dragons depending on how long the quests take.

EVE
War is over. We lost and are evaccing. But WoW Classic is pretty good. Moving is still going. Some of us actually logged into EVE to move.

GW2
We would need 5 people on to get the Fractal Island started, please contact Maellung if you want to help out or have more info.

LOTRO
New expansion pack Minas Morgul is scheduled for release on October 29th. It is available for pre-sale at http://lotro.com/en/minasithil/

The guild is continuing to walk some players through the starting areas

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

GAME NEWS
Patch 5.1 is close, coming to us sometime late October. If the previous history is any indication, we will get a date a few days after we record this podcast. So, keep an eye on our discord in the #ffxiv channel for updates! (Likely to get a launch date on the 18th. More on that in a moment…)

Patch 5.1, Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty, will have…

New Main Scenario Quests

The first act of the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse raid series, starting with “The Copied Factory”. This raid is a collaboration between the FFXIV designers and the NieR:Automata designers to create a spiritual sequel to the NieR:Automata series. This will be the 24-player raid series, similar to the Crystal Tower, Ivaliace, and Void Ark series in previous expansions.

New crafter and gather quests as we get questslines to help rebuild Ishgard, from the Heavensward expansion.

New Game+. A way to replay past experiences and quests from the game, while remaining your actual level. There are some great solo duty and story elements that just watching them on the “Unending Journey” will not suffice. With this new feature, you will be able to jump back into different places in the MSQ to relive those events, but still retain your current level and gear.

New Dungeon, “The Grand Cosmos”. Can be done via the duty finder or with your trusts.

A new Extreme Trial! We know what the fight is, as it normally the last trial in each expansion, but giving the name away is a spoiler. So, it’s that fight with that thing that ends the MSQ of Shadowbringers in the 5.0 content. 5.1 has the extreme version of that.

New Pixie Beast Tribe Quests! A new beast tribe will become available, the first for Shadowbringers. It is a daily quest reputation grind, but it does reward with some very unique and imaginative cosmetics, minions, and also a nice, easy source for a few end game tomestones.

Blue Mage Updates! Increased Level cap, new quests, new skills, new blue-mage specific encounters.

Time to get the band together! The Performance system, where you can play music on an instrument, can now be synced up as a group!

New Housing Plots! All 4 residential districts will have wards 19-21 opened up to purchase for a house. In addition, a 2nd apartment building will become available. The new plots will start off being only available to purchase by an FC, but if they do a move, that means the old plot will become available. So if you are in the market for a new house, this may be the time to buy the house of your dreams. Right now, AIE is happy with our current housing arrangement, and we do not plan on moving.

Some UI refinements, such as glamour chest updates, duty finder ui updates (just adding your current ilevel to the duty finder window to save you a few clicks), emote sorting, sound effects when you are emote’d, and other “surprise features” that sorta just show up in the patched game.

Finally, the 5.1 Live Letter Part LV. (Brings up my roman abacus…) That’s the 55th Live Letter, will be taking place on Oct 18th at 4am PST. Remember, Square Enix is a Japaneese company. Usually, we get further details for the next patch on this 2nd Live Letter, a story and hype trailer, some unannounced game feature, and the date of the patch at the end. Please look forward to it.

Current FC news and End Game

The FC is still rocking, and we are still on Goblin in the Crystal Data Center. You are welcome to come along, play with us with a free demo account, which lets you play up to level 35 on all of the classes/jobs. To join the FC, do you need a retail account, via a retail key, steam, or on the Playstation Network for the PS4 folks out there, as this game does provide true cross play.

Without catching a sale someplace, in US Dollars…
$60 bucks gets you everything to play current content.
$40 bucks get you Shadowbringers, which will include all previous expansions, so if you have a retail key in any way, including the Twitch Prime promotion that happened last year, this will get you current.
$20 for the starter edition, letting you level up to 50 and corresponding 2.x patch content. The Heavensward promotion is over, but we told you that a few months ago that was going to stop at the end of June, didn’t we? 🙂

The current end game activities in Shadowbringers does have a few raids and high-end content available to give you things to do with your gear grind.

When you finish the MSQ, you have a couple of early goals, assuming you want to work on gearing that job. If you want to roll up a new job, by all means, go for it.

First off, will be unlocking content. There are 2 additional end game dungeons and along with the last MSQ dungeon will make up the Expert Roulette, which will your fastest source of end game tomestones, the end game tokens for gear. You can pick up “The Twinning” in the Crystarium, and “Akademia Anydar” in Eulmore near the Southeast Derelicts warp crystal waypoint. Complete these two and you will have unlocked the Expert Roulette. Protip: Asking in FC chat or #ffxiv in AIE’s discord will help you get a group thru there much faster, with cooler people, and will be a much better time.

There is also the Wandering Minstrel in the Crystarium that will unlock the extreme trials for Innocence and Titania.

Also in Eulmore, you will have the vendors that will trade you items for your tomestones, tokens from end game bosses.

When you hit iLevel 425, you will be eligible to enter the normal modes of Eden, the current 8-player raids available at this time. The unlock is also in the Crystarium, and will have you do a few story quests until you can unlock the first boss. There is no trash in Eden, just bosses.

Going thru the 4 wings, for 4 bosses thru there, you will rewarded with an item that once you have enough of them can be traded in for ilevel 450 gear. Some items require more than one token, but the tooltip will show how many you need to get a piece of gear.

By completing the 4th wing, everyone will get a “Blade of Early Antiquity”, which can be aquired once a week. When you get 7 of these, and 1000 Phantasmagoria tomestones, you can turn them in for a iLevel 460 weapon.

Also, other gear items can be purchased with Phantas for iLevel 460 gear as well.

Once you complete the 4 wings and reach an average iLevel of 440, you will then be eligible to run the savage mode of the Eden raid, which is the most difficult content in the game at this time. Your reward for this content will be 470 gear, with the weapon being 475 form the last boss. Items are rolled upon, like a traditional dungeon, but if you don’t get the drop, everyone still gets a consolation prize of a book, which you can get 1 per wing, per week. When you accumulate enough, you can then turn them into the vendors in Eulmore, getting the same piece of gear that would of dropped from the dungeon. So, if the RNG aetherflows are not in your favor, you can guarantee yourself gear by continuing to clear the content over multiple weeks.

AIE does high end content twice a week. Tuesday nights at 10PM EST is what we call gearing up nights, where we do Eden normal runs to help people at least see the content, get explained the fights in a friendly environment, and overall, have a good time.

Thursday nights 10PM EST, is where we hope to do the higher end content. Extreme Trials or Savage Eden is our goal.

We do use a separate Discord server for coordination, scheduling, and raid discussion, but any AIE member can join. Just ask either Durus or Abovan an invite and we can get you on that server.

It’s a throwback to the day when there was not a lot of variety available in crystal colors and this was one of the only ways to get a magenta one. There will be camaraderie, trivia, and Rodian Mayo sandwiches for all! Well, camaraderie and trivia, anyway. And crystals.

FFXIV
Life in Hydaelyn continues. Weekly Eden Normal clears are still happening.
* We’ve started a learning group for Savage content on Thursday evenings when we’re not doing Extreme content. Bunbuns are still cute; Lalafell are still smol.
* Recent Live Letter (54) revealed details from upcoming patches including: raising level cap for Blue Mage to 60, new job quests, crafting and gathering systems rework that “increases easy of entry” and introduces some new UI layouts.
* The restoration of Ishgard, new community system called “Fellowships” that can have 1000 members though is a loose coalition of posting and LFG systems – not a chat channel.
* The “New Game+” system will be introduced that’ll let you revisit main scenario quests from Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers. A Realm Reborn and other storylines will come later.

* The new raid content with Neir Automata theme, “YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse” is also coming.

ESO
@Dankinia was out with IRL fun so this past Friday’s MFN was run by Thuggs. Shoutout to Thuggs for shepherding the group through a skyshard clear of Craglorn. MFNs continue on Friday nights… join!

Beyond that, the ESO group is eagerly awaiting Update 24 coming soon, which will be the conclusion of the chain of recent content updates all centered around the dragon theme. https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/news/post/56975

STO
Lots of fun in STO continues with our Fleet and the STO MFNs on Sunday nights.
In a sad aside, Aaron Eisenberg, the actor from DS9 who played Nog, the Ferengi, passed away recently. He was a contributor to STO and a respected part of the Star Trek community.

EVE
War is over. We lost and are evaccing. But WoW Classic is pretty good.

GW2
WoW Classic continues to be good, though my old petitioning for a group skills are very rusty. GW2 has had the first episode of the new Living World season saga drop, to good reviews. Be sure to log into a toon so you can unlock the episode while it is still free. There is a party in the Charr lands, and you are invited!

There is new, at least theoretically, harder content that has been released called Strike Missions. The idea is to have harder open world content that can be used for an intro to raiding. Reactions so far are generally positive, but it appears to need tuning.

LOTRO
Last night’s raid in LOTRO went very well. We had enough people where we had an actual raid group. If anyone missed out on the raid and wants to run through the intro area let me know and I can group up with you and run you through the intro area. New race was on bullroarer ( lotro pts). Hopefully soon we can see Stout Axe Dwarves live

And with that, let’s talk about AIE in WoW classic!

GAME NEWS
WoW Classic

Nevermore is heading up the AIE Craft Faire Project, she is working on a Google Docs Spreadsheet to keep track of the items that are needed, what levels you gain access to professions, and which recipes are needed for leveling vs. just nice to have.

For anyone that wants to help out, especially if you previously helped out in the retail Craft Faires please let Tetsemi and/or Nevermore know and we’ll get you in. Craft faire captains and/or gathers are most welcome.

Lars and Bhock are heading up the AIE Mount Project . Basically a rolling guild fund that will provide funds to be paid back to the guild for helping people get over the hump to get their mounts. The collection character is AIEMounts

Bhock and Girjira are heading up the AIE Raiding Project. A guild bank toon will take donations of crafted items for the raid teams and coordinating the formation of the 40 person raid team

We will be removing any character that hasn’t logged into the guild in over 14 days, we’re above 900+ characters now and need to make room by removing inactive characters. If you character gets removed, we can always add you back in, just hop into the AIE Discord #wow-classic channel or ask in the AIELFO channel in game.

Congrats to Lulzsec our first level 60!

CLOSE
And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Tet for updating us on WoW Classic.

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. Mkallah is at @cyberwaif,and Tetsemi is at @ivorytiger. We record live with video every other Sunday at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific. You can join the chatroom and play along with us on our website at https://aie-guild.org/podcast-live-stream/ and our Discord server for chat at https://aie-guild.info/discord . Our theme was composed by the amazing Andrew Allen, follow him at @keyswithsoul! or visit his website http://keyswithsoul.com !

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

No segments this weeks, as Hunts is living up to his name and Hunting the Wind and Buxley is currently serving time as a Buff rock in WoW Classic for an unpardonable pun in Barrens Chat. Having said that, anyone is welcome to submit a segment for the podcast.

Next time, we’ll be talking to Abovan and Durus in FFXIV. So until then, AIE…

– This is Mkallah
– This is Mewkow
– This is Tetsemi

And this has been… The AIE Podcast.

Send someone a special message in WoW Classic with AIE Guildie Grams!
A “Guildie Gram” is based on the candy gram fundraisers that schools organize for holidays like Valentine’s Day where someone sends a special note with candy or flowers to friends & teachers.

We love the spirit of community that everyone has shown in WoW Classic since launch. We want to continue this momentum going forward! There are a lot of reasons you could send a Guildie Gram:

* Someone went out of their way to help you with a quest you couldn’t have finished alone

* Thank someone for helping you with profession mats or creating an item you needed

* You heard someone was having a rough day and just wanted to make them smile

The Guildie Gram will include:

– Your personal message

– Savory Deviate Delight x 1 (A treat that turns you into a pirate or a ninja when you eat it!)

* Guildie Grams are able to be ordered by Horde members of AIE in WoW Classic on Pagle-US.

* They will be mailed 1-3 days after the order form is filled out and in game payment is received.

There are many reasons to spread kindness and positive messages with each other.

Think outside the box and send a Guildie Gram to some of your fellow AIE guildies today! <3

Tabards are encouraged but not required! All guildies are welcome 🙂

Location: TBD

We understand Classic is expensive to train talents and professions, so not everyone will have a tabard yet and that’s okay!

That being said:

If anyone *wants* to donate a tabard to be raffled off to AIE guildies that don’t have one yet, that would be awesome!

You can any tabard donations to Nevermore.

We have a release date for Onslaught and it is October 22. PTS is up and rocking. The community has really embraced it and is making a great contribution to testing and feedback. In Onslaught, players will be able to roll a Nautolan if they are subscribed for any amount of time between now and the release of Onslaught. If you are wondering what a Nautolan is, check out Jedi Master Kit Fisto from Clone Wars.

In the live game, September is the month of many pirates! The Pirate Incursion event will be running twice this month on Dantooine.

Guild MFNs are on Tuesdays at 9PM eastern and we alternate between Imperial and Republic sides, so everyone can come and play. September’s MEGA on the 27th is going to resurrect an OG mission to acquire the fabled Magenta Lightsaber Crystal. This is a shortish mission with some travel in between and we will be hanging out in discord and doing some Star Wars trivia as well. And who knows what else!

Also, New York Cantina is coming up fast on Oct 4th. A number of AIE people will be there, so if you fancy a night of drinks, AIEers, and possibly a little bit of game talk, you’re invited! For more info and how to connect up, jump into discord and ask.

FFXIV
The FFXIV raid team took down Titania Extreme, the first piece of “raid-level” end game content in the expansion Shadowbringers. This is an 8 player raid, which can be done after the MSQ for Shadowbringers has been completed.

Currently, AIE is running gear up nights Tuesdays at 9:30pm Eastern and progression nights at 9:30pm eastern.

No experience is necessary! If you wish to join us with more challenging content, drop us a line in the AIE Discord in the #ffxiv channel.

I’d like to add that we are interested in running level 80 map nights. To run maps nights, the first step is to… get maps. To get them organically, you need to be a level 80 gatherer, that’s miner, botanist, or fisher. They are an extra item on your gathers, and you can only get one map a day. Furthermore, you can have one map activated, one in your main bags, one map in your chocobo saddle bags, and one in each retainer.

Running maps can get you super rewards and fabulous prizes, especially when you spawn the “bonus zone”.

So, we’d love to help get maps up for map nights. It’s a super fun activity, pretty casual time, and a great time to be had by all.

ESO
The Imperial City Celebration event is happening now and the DLC for the Imperial City is now free in the Crown store for anyone who doesn’t own it or have ESO Plus. This is a PvP focused area with some PvE content and two PvE dungeons – White Gold Tower (ugh) and Imperial City Prison. During the event drops of Tel Var Stones, Key Fragments, and materials will be doubled and the chance of getting a Stonefire Scamp pet or the Soul-Shriven skin will be double as well. Also, as usual, double drops from all bosses within the Imperial City and the dungeons.
You can earn 2 event tickets per day (per account), by defeating the final boss in one of the dungeons, or slaying a patrolling monster or mini-boss on the streets of Imperial City or within the sewers.

And MFN is still going strong on Friday Nights at 9pm est.

EVE
EVE Officers are playing Wow Classic, @Huck is holding down the ship.

LOTRO
SNL still going strong. September 21 raid on Lotro. All you need is the client downloaded. The game is free to play. All are welcome. If you have questions contact either Marcus or Maellung, or post your question in #lotro channel on discord.

GW2
MFN Monday nights and all who want to learn to do fractals on Friday night at 9 eastern starting on September 20th. Fractals are a mini dungeon style with unique mechanics and design

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

GAME NEWS
Star Trek Online Game News
– Story Update coming September 10th, Awakening.
– This looks to be a continuation of Age of Discovery, but more in the current timeline(2410). Anthony Rap will reprise his role of Lt. Commander Stamets for this part of the story.
– New Task Force Operation(TFO)(A type of Dungeon or Flashpoint). Mycelial Realm. It’s a ground based TFO, bringing you into the Mycelial Network against a Klingon faction that is not aligned with the Empire.
– Five New Patrols(single player content)
– A New One Time Event that goes with the launch of Awakening. By running the new content daily(max 60 Progress Points a daily) you earn Progress towards getting a T6 Elachi Frigate.
– A little Quality of Life stuff. Starfleet and Klingon races that were not of Romulan origin can now captain Romulan Warbirds

Fleet projects, as normal, could use some duty officers.
MFN tonight will start after the podcast.

A "Guildie Gram" is based on the candy gram fundraisers that schools organize for holidays like Valentine's Day where someone sends a special note with candy or flowers to friends & teachers.

We love the spirit of community that everyone has shown in WoW Classic since launch. We want to continue this momentum going forward! There are a lot of reasons you could send a Guildie Gram:

ESO
The two new dungeons for Scalebreaker are out and running them will give you the tablet you need to open wing 2 of the Hall of the Lunar Champion. (This is the new house that you can get while playing through the current story update.) If you need a group to run them, join us for MFN on Friday nights and we can help you out. Several of us have been through them a few times already and know the fights. Speaking of MFN, it’s Friday night at 9pm est. We run dungeons, clear zones for sky shards, and on occasion fall off cliffs.

FFXIV
Folks still having fun in the latest ShadowBringers expansion.
* Weekly “Fully Party” group activities continue twice a week (Tue and Thu nights).

* Join the FFXIV gang in Discord voice chat. There are people on everyday.
* If you haven’t checked out FFXIV yet, but are interested, give the free trial a try. https://freetrial.finalfantasyxiv.com/

Sunday nights are the MFN night for STO. Grebog, Dent, Corley and a few others have been in there leading the charge.

https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11240193-command-a-romulan-ship-on-any-captain%21

Very soon, Captains among the ranks of the Federation, Klingon, and Dominion factions will be gaining access to most of the Romulan Republic’s fierce fleet of starships. This includes many legendary Warbirds, and a number of other Romulan starships. Though these vessels have been restricted up until now, the galaxy is heading in a direction of increased cooperation and sharing of technology, and the Republic has been benefiting from those arrangements for some time. Their leadership has decided it’s time enough to return the trust that has been shown to them, and allow their trusted allies the

EVE
A strange wormhole has opened up and most of the current Eve players are now in a strange space called Azeroth. Seems like they thought it was similar to Dust but with better options …

GW2
Arenanet is running a champion rush event until Aug. 27th.; there will be bonus loot from killing champs in core Tyria, and a token drop that has to be turned in to progress community rewards.
https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/champion-rush-begins-next-week/

After Sept. 3rd, there will be the not well named “Expansion Boost Special Event”. It does not mean there is a new expansion, it will however give double XP for mastery progression for the existing expansions.
https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/catch-up-with-the-expansion-boost-special-event/

More significantly, Arenanet has a big live announcement coming up on August 30th. This will probably be about the new Living World season coming up, but they have surprised us before with extras.
https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/join-us-for-a-special-live-event-on-august-30/

LOTRO
Farmer’s Faire has arrived through September 9th.
September 21st there will be an invasion of LOTRO’s SNL. All are welcome to attend as I will be leading all interested to try lotro through the intro area for the race of Man. It is free to play, just need to download the game. Any questions feel free to ask me or post in #lotro

Max>>I was in with LotRO MFN this weekend and can mention that.

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

GAME NEWS
Bioware is going add achievements to the next release of the public test server for Onslaught. These achievements will likely require us to run 5 group content activities, which can be pve or pvp and will result in titles that we can use in the live game. The PTS is a limited time activity so keep an eye out for news about when it’s up.

The double xp event is over now, but it helped a lot of folks reach their goals in Summer of 300, while some are waiting until the night before to finish up….

The New York Cantina has been announced for October 4th from 7-10 Eastern to coincide with New York Comic Con. There will be some AIE folks there, so if you are looking for an East Coast meetup, this could be the one! For more info about connecting up with AIE people there, come and ask in the AIE discord – swtor channel.

August MEGA was this past weekend and it was a great night of cat-herding, grappling, extricating, datacron-getting and some pretty epic chat. Fun times!

6.0 notes for reference – Onslaught (expansion title)
Spoils of War – title for all the changes related to +5 levels to 75, abilities, gear, gear drop system, etc. Complete overhaul
New Story – Malgus, War, New characters Arn, the Cyborg Jedi Padawan of Tau
New Planet Onderon – story and mission location
New Operation on Dxun (Onderon’s moon) – Czerka corp + Trandoshian focused
New Planet Mek-Sha – cyberpunk, pirate, asteroid theme
New Flashpoint – Corellia – story specific flashpoint
New playable species – Nautolans

Nick and Marcus sit down with Matt Pucevich and Eric Musco from Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic development team. In the interview the guys get some EXCLUSIVE insight into the first Operation boss on Dxun as well as some planned changes to Operations mechanics in the future.

WoW
WoW Alliance team is still recruiting. We take cross-realm. Also, we finally got into Eternal Palace and killed 3 bosses!!!

Noob Raid also did Eternal Palace and took down the first 3 bosses.

WoW Classic
https://aie-guild.org/blog/2019/08/wow-classic-pre-launch-prep/

We are gearing up for WoW Classic, and the officer teams wants to make sure the initial plans are known for the guild. We are going to aim for being on Pagle (PVE East Coast) along with a number of other podcast communities, like CTR, The Starting Zone, World of Warcast, Lagging Balls, and iToons, just to name a few.

She will have a character parked in Orgrimmar to take donations, as mailing things costs 30 copper, which defeats the whole point.

For launch day, we’ll be on AIE Discord in either the WoW voice channel or one of the Social Channels, so make sure to join us, even if it’s just to listen in!

SWTOR
Onslaught is coming and the new maximum character level will increase to 70. If you’d like to jump in near the top, you can purchase character tokens for level 60 or 70. The available tokens all work a bit differently to achieve different ends, so do your research if you want to take this option! Or jump into discord and discuss.

The next phase of the public test server will be up soon. You can go there to test out the new abilities coming in the expansion, as well as the new materials storage system.

Also, SWTOR’s Free to Play offering just got sweeter, so if you felt it was too limiting before, it might be worth checking out again.

We are in the middle of a double xp event that is running for another couple of weeks. It’s a great time to get that last straggler to level 70 before Onslaught.

There is a possibility that there will be a sale on character renames and character transfers in the weeks leading up to Onslaught as well.

This month’s MEGA will be on Friday, August 23rd, at 9PM Eastern. We will be doing the Fleet Datacron, famous for its requirement of coordination and death defying acts of bravery. Ok, well, coordination, anyway. And there will be plenty of Star Wars trivia

FFXIV
Eden ‘Normal’ raid clears continue.

Summer of Love happened, the FC met at the FC house and participated in the community wide remembrance event. The FC basement may or not may still smell like ARR champagne.

FC is now at 130 members with 14 new and returning players joining in the past week.

Check out the following AIE FFXIV streamers at:
Abovan – https://mixer.com/Abovan
Durus – https://mixer.com/Durus
SecondAid – https://mixer.com/AIE_Secondaid
They often do 2 or 3 way streams, especially on nights they are running raid style content.

ESO
The Orsinium Celebration Event is running now until Monday August 19th at 10am est. During the event you get double crafting mats from harvesting crafting nodes, double rewards from the maelstrom Arena on both Vet and Normal difficulty, and double the reward boxes from the daily quests. The first daily each day will also reward 2 event tickets (once per account per day)
The next DLC for the Season of the Dragon is called Scalebreaker and will be out on Monday August 12th on PC/Mac and August 27th for consoles. It is free for ESO plus members or can be purchased from the in-game Crown store.

EVE
New Space, with new PVE and PVP opportunities! War still going on, I think. (I am more out of the loop than normal because I am migrating everything to a new PC). We have more of a Focus on Alliance level stuff at this point. On that front, Members are not allowed to file for coalition SRP anymore, all requests must be made on the Blades of Grass forum (if you don’t know the link ask in AIEU Discord)(if you are not in AIEU Discord that link should be pinned in the Eve embassy channel on the AIE discord)(if you aren’t in that discord the link is https://aie-guild.info/discord

. Fly Dangerously!

GW2
Monday MFNs and they going after bigger and badder world bosses like Tequatl, a bigger dragon than the one we took on during SoL!

LOTRO
Starting on the 17th during SNL (MFN) we will be starting the process of acquiring the “Cloak of the Cluck”. It will take at least a few weeks to get it. It only requires you to be out of the intro. If anyone needs help or has questions let me know.
https://aie-guild.org/blog/2019/08/aie-in-lord-of-the-rings-online/

Tetsemi- And with that, let’s get back to Marcus and find out what’s going on in the AIE Community.

GAME NEWS
In AIE fashion its all about the community. The guild really focuses on in game events and meet ups IRL. to keep us a family. For me it was max and semas show that brought me to the guild and fell in love with it.

A big event is remembrance day as this show has talked about many times.
In because of it We started a year ago with a monthly event in swtor called MEGA. due to that event we have found ourselves linking with lots of people/ other guilds in because of that and the podcasts. The swtor guild has had a ton of new members. Also We are currently hoping to implement this across all the games. I personally feel like once you get a taste of aie. Youll get hooked like me and mal did.. Mal is a new com officer. Here is his story….

I will leave it up to you if you want to mention it. But here is a true story of community of AIE effect. I was a casual AIE member until listening to the AIE podcast and hearing Abovan (I think) issue a challenge to reach out and group up with someone in game. I took that challenge and loved it. It was so much fun I kept doing it to the point that I am on 2 ops teams co leader of one of them. Because of what you did with MEGA and the success of that I decided to try that in lotro eventually going every week. Because of all that I am a community officer. I now lean on the community to help me through stuff I have to deal with because of things in RL past. It is a family. We should not be afraid or nervous to join in stuff that is going on in the community. Even if it is slightly uncomfortable. If it wasn’t for accepting of a challenge from a community officer I wouldn’t have gotten all of what this family has to offer.

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

After Rem. Day ESO MFN – Special Edition

The Season of the Dragon will continue with Scalebreaker DLC and the Update 23 patch. August 12 for PC and Mac and on August 27 for PS4 and Xbox One (announced at Quakecon). It will have 2 new dungeons as well as quality of life improvements for the base game. it features a prologue quest with the return of Sai Sahan, even if the manner of such return is still unknown. And dragons will be moving out of Elswyr in the future.

Checking out the new dungeons as a group will be scheduled for the first MFN after Scalebreaker launches. Our MFN adventures tend to vary between zone clears for Skyshards, random dungeon queuing, and daily quests for specific in game events depending on what the group wants to do.

Marcus and Nick begin the first of several episodes highlighting their favorite Game Development Studios! This episode they talk about their the good, the bad, and the ugly from Bethesda.

WoW
First week of raiding in Nazjatar Palace, and a lot of bosses down. The new Mechagon Mythic dungeon is really hard but has been cleared by several teams. Still most are grinding reputation and the new tiers of gear, to be fully equipped for the new Palace Raid

We are doing COOP for Summer of Love and for the first time ever AIE will officially be on both sides, attackers and defenders!!!!

SWTOR
In SWTOR, the Nar Shaddaa Night Life event continues. If you like gambling with almost no chance of getting what you are after, this event is for you! It’s an RNG-palooza that goes well with Netflix. Have you seen Stranger Things Season 3 yet?

The Bounty Contract and Pirate Incursion events will be coming this summer as well. The Pirate Incursion, in particular, is very good for command experience.

In SWTOR guild news, we are in the middle of our Summer of 300. Several guildies are working on getting to command level 300 on all 8 classes, because that achievement is being moved to a Feat of Strength in October. Come and report your progress as we run around the Galaxy doing important stuff during MFN on Tuesdays nights. Or just drop a note in discord to let everyone know how it’s going.

July MEGA is going to be on July 27th and will kick off AIE’s Summer of Love for 2019. We are going to Yavin IV to kill the Ancient Threat. This is a summonable boss that many people have never seen, so be sure to attend!

STO
The 2019 Risian Lohlunat Festival!
It’s time for Captains on all three platforms to take a relaxing break on Risa, and get their hands on the T6 Risian corvette, new costumes, emotes, and more!

Ythe guild fun nights on Sunday nights have focused on getting some of the currency for the updated cosmetic rewards.

The T6 Risian Corvette is the ship available this year, which is pretty cool: https://pwimages-a.akamaihd.net/arc/7a/96/7a96af30b96451d6cebd5df9bcac2cc91561079244.png

ESO
Danikina is out having fun for a bit so ESO MFN was guest hosted by Sparrow this week. Big thanks to Sparrow for stepping up and keeping the regular Friday night ESO fun going.

EVE
Nullsec local chat blackout is in full effect making for a lot of sneaky roams, black ops hunting and all pve activities are either on hold or only committed to while a high alert Home Defence fleet is up and active. Sovereignty attacks are still full force but drifter attacks seem to have ebbed off. Alot of paranoia and turtling atm mixed with sneaky attacks and lipsmacking for blingy kills 🙂

LOTRO
Right now just MFN. On the 20th we will be trying for a chance to get drops such as cosmetics outfit pieces, cosmetic pets, mounts etc.

During SNL (MFN) we took down 2 of the 3 wings of the Great Barrows.

GW2
GW2 Monday night MFNs are still rolling and open to anyone in the guild. All levels are welcome and the activities vary depending on the group that comes together.
Starting Tuesday, “Special Event: World Boss Rush” is returning for a week.
I bet that will be something the guild can get involved in! :smiley:

Balance patch out soon. Much weeping and wailing, judging by the early release notes.

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

GAME NEWS
ABOVAN Intro
Shadowbringers! Yea! It is a masterclass on how a MMO expansion should be designed. Taking what works and expand on that, removing things that don’t work, and finding what the players like the most in your game, and making that the best content that they have ever experienced. The login queues are short, very few bugs or problems, and overall a great MMO experience.

ABOVAN Activity
AIE has been super active in FFXIV lately.

Some metrics for activity taken on 7/11

Last 30 days 81 Unique characters logged in.
Last 7 days 64 Unique characters logged in.

Current membership sits at 114 characters.

Many of the current players of the game have or are wrapping up the MSQ for Shadowbringers. For those that have, they are all saying that it is such a wonderful and emotional experience, and with it being one of the best Final Fantasy stories told.

Durus – I’M HERE! 😉

DURUS Plot Overview
In Shadowbringers, the game follows the player as they journey to Norvrandt, a copy of Eorzea which where the light is flooding the world, and we take up the mantle of the “Warrior of Darkness” to bring balance back to the world, saving Norvrandt and in extension, saving Eorzea. The journey to do so, is an emotional one, as the story and characters are well thought out, superbly voice-acted, and show character growth, as any good story should do.

DURUS Gameplay
There’s plenty to do in the new expansion, besides just watching a great story unfold. All jobs were reworked for the new expansion, some more than others. 2 new jobs, the Dancer and Gunbreaker. Trusts, which are NPCs that will help you through the MSQ dungeons to help you learn the new ones. They are slower than actual players at clearing the dungeon, but good for those that want a stress-free experience on their initial clears. 8-player content still require 8 actual players, so there are times that grouping will be needed.

At the time of this recording, Sunday, 7/14, we have the following instanced content.

8 Four player dungeons
3 Normal 8 player trials
2 Extreme 8 player trials

We will be getting new content soon. The dates are approximate and subject to change, but this is what we have to work with right now.

ABOVAN Tue Maintenance / Content Update
On July 16th, which is this week, we are expecting to have the release of Eden normal mode, the 8-player raid. Normal is commonly known as story mode.

On July 30th we are expecting to get Eden Savage, which is the harder mode for raiders. Also, this is when we will be getting Tomestones of Phantasmagoria, which will be the high end game currency for the time being. Finally, we will also be getting a new dungeon, Lyhe Ghiah, which will be our 9th 4 player dungeon.

So, these are being added to the already impressive 126 already existing dungeons, trials and raids in the game.

DURUS AIE Schedule
To accommodate this, AIE in FFXIV will be working off of the following schedule for events for us to do group content with. These are just times that we are shooting for, and may be subject to change in the future, but we wanted to have something up on the wall now, to see if it sticks.

Tuesday/Thursday (11:30 – 2:30am EST) – XFN – X-treme Nights!
More traditional AIE Raid team.
Higher level content, cutting edge, expect death, and probably pugs to start
Discord voice, MANDATORY!!! (mic not required, but preferred)
Pre-defined roster will take precedence.

Wednesday – 9:00pm EST – Mandatory Fun Night
Leveling and more accessible content. I.E. Leveling roulettes, new player help, MSQ and other dungeon unlocks, Maps, and other non-cutting edge content.

Friday – 11:00pm EST – Mandatory Fun Night
Leveling and more accessible content. I.E. Leveling roulettes, new player help, MSQ and other dungeon unlocks, Maps, and other non-cutting edge content.

These are the events that AIE will be doing each week. This does not mean that members can’t create their own groups, staics, or raid teams.

It’s acceptable for any AIE member to create their own group, with their own schedules, culture, loot, rules, etc.

One more time for the people listening in the back!

ABOVAN ANY AIE member can create their own group, with their own schedules, culture, loot, rules, etc,

These events, and any other player events can be added the AIE calendar, which is found at https://wiki.aie-guild.org/index.php?title=Guild_Calendar. Contact an FFXIV game officer with the details.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 297: Our Content Creator Interview
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-297-our-content-creator-interview/

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-297 explain what the heck we meant in our answers to our Content Creator interview with Daniel Steed that was published on swtor.com on Thursday.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 298: Summer Of 300
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-298-summer-of-300/

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-297 kick off the Summer of 300 where we work to get the last few of our 8 classes to CXP Rank 300 before those achievements are retired when 6.0 launches. We talk tips and tricks for getting that sweet CXP.

Episode 47: Does E3 Rhyme with PvP?
https://www.buzzsprout.com/143519/1310698

Marcus and Nick are joined by fellow AIE Guildies Medullah and Nezzir to talk about what they’re excited for that they saw at this year’s E3 conference, as well as the current and upcoming states of PvP in SWTOR.

WoW
Tonight we have a (mostly) all hunter raid to Uldir for the Hunter book, organized by DoA/Gijora. 8PM server

Noob raid killed Rastakhan last night, which was a first for a couple attendees

Patch 8.2 dropped opening up Mechagon and Najazatar for questing and story!
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/23014436/rise-of-azshara-content-update-notes

Increase your power with Benthic gear, new upgradable armor that can now be collected in Nazjatar.

Defeating powerful enemies, completing quests, and plundering the treasures of Azshara’s minions may yield Prismatic Manapearls. Spend this new currency on many different items within Nazjatar including Benthic tokens and upgrades for Benthic gear, pets, and a mount.

After establishing a hub in Nazjatar and empowering their Heart of Azeroth, players will make their way to Mechagon by starting the quest “The Legend of Mechagon,” which can be accepted by Alliance players in Boralus and Horde players in Dazar’alor near each city’s respective Flight Masters.

Junkyard Tinkering
As they traverse the zone, players will have access to Pascal-K1N6, a giant iron robot who will help players craft equipment, mounts, toys, consumables, and more in exchange for Spare Parts and Energy Cells found across Mechagon. Recipes to craft more items can be found around the island.

Pocket-Sized Computation Device
The Pocket-Sized Computation Device is a trinket that players can customize via three Punchcard Sockets, into which players can insert one Red, Yellow, and Blue Punch Card.

Level 120 players will unite with Prince Erazmin and the Rustbolt Resistance to help overthrow his deranged father and destroy his Mechoriginator doomsday device in this new 8-boss “mega-dungeon.”

Heart of Azeroth System Update: Essences

Mount Equipment

New Quests
A host of new stories and adventures are now available across Azeroth.
Magni Bronzebeard
War Campaign: Stay of Execution
New Heritage Armor: Gnomes and Tauren

New Epic Battleground: Ashran

New War Mode Event: The Battle for Nazjatar

New Island Expeditions

New Missions and Mechanics
New Missions and Troops

As you take the fight to the seas, your loyal followers will be with you every step of the way. You can now enlist Boat Captains and other skilled seafarers to fight your battles.

The once-forbidden skies of Kul Tiras and Zandalar will soon be open to heroes eager to take flight. The achievement Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two will allow daring adventurers to take to the skies in Battle for Azeroth’s zones, including in the new ones, Mechagon and Nazjatar. Unlock flying will also be rewarded with a mechanical parrot mount: Wonderwing 2.0.

New Mounts
Pet Battle Dungeon: Stratholme
Players can now make all armor slots hidden, except Legs. Let’s keep it classy.

FFXIV
Pre-launch access is live!- For those that have pre-ordered Shadowbringers, you have access to the expansion as of early Friday morning. The queue was pretty high as plenty of people were still awake at 5am E.T. and eager to dive in, including a large contingent of the AIE FC members. The Discord voice channel for FF14 has been pretty active at all hours of the day since then, and there are plenty of people happy to help with dungeons, FATEs, and anything else you might need a guildie for. There were no ‘Raubahn Extreme mode’ moments that we are aware of, so the dev team’s work has paid off.

Broad story notes without spoilers – Shadowbringers is…gasp…darker in tone. Remember all that talk of morally grey story we heard a while back? I think we found it in FF14. Unlike the usual MSQ on rails experience, you are given some options of what order to run tasks in as you explore the new maps. There is a ton of great lore about the universe the game is in, with some holes being filled, and even bigger holes being opened up as you play the story. Rumor has it the first dungeon has some big reveals.

New classes: The second hand reports I’ve gotten are that Dancer is a ton of fun to play, and you might forget this is a ranged class, and a support class at that. It definitely aligns itself with the Bard and the Machinist as far as they work in a party.
I’m also hearing that the Gunbreaker is a very fun tank class to play, with even anti-flavor of the month players being drawn into class as well. Of course, there is now a flood of Gunbreakers and Dancers, so healers; this is your time to instant queue. On the plus side, both classes start at level 60, and require that you have a level 60 class, and of course the new expansion.
A lot of our familiar buttons are now gone, with very few new ones added, but over all things seems a bit clearer as far as what your class is supposed to be doing. Healers are meant to just heal now, so no more expectations for them to also DPS. Tanks don’t have a mitigation aura/stance, their extra tankiness is built in. Instead, their auras seem more for keeping threat/enmity.
Machinist definitely got the rework was promised, but not enough experience with it yet to tell how well it did.

New races: There is a Flood of…bunnies it seems. It is possible that the majority race is no longer the miqote, as the Viera is very obviously everywhere. The hrothgar is available as well, though not as popular yet. Rumor is that both races have little reason to use the Aesthetician(hair dresser) as their hair is tied to their face, meaning it will require another fantasia to change that out.

Catchup: If you are new to the game, it is highly recommended you play through the entire story at least once, otherwise, there are now class level to 70 skips and ‘straight to Shadowbringers’ story skips available for purchase with your real life money in the mog station. The new classes are not represented in the level skips, as they start at level 60. Those playing the new expansion will still be interacting with those players that are in the older content, so there is no worry that you are being left behind.

SWTOR
AIE in SWTOR has initiated the “Summer of 300”! With a handful of CXP300 achievements being removed in the fall for the expansion we wanted to get some of them done before they become “feats of strength”. A group of us are working on command ranks on alts to see how far we can get over the summer.
• Also in the theme of 300… SWTOR Escape Pod Cast episode 300 will be Tuesday, July 9th. We’ll likely take over some or all of MFN for a pre-show party and talking about the last 5 years of SWTOR.
• For Tuesday Night MFN and weekly activities, the guild is killing their large invasion targets this summer. The Devs increased the rate of Conquest point gain in a couple ways and we are taking full advantage!
• July MEGA will be an epic hunt for the Ancient Threat on Yavin. This will be on 7/27 and will mark the kickoff of AIE’s Summer of Love week.
• Big hello and welcome to the handful of new to AIE members that have joined in the past two weeks!

ESO
The Thieves guild and Dark Brotherhood event starts July 2nd and runs until July 15th. You will get double rewards for world boss and delve boss kills as well as the dailies. There will also be increased rewards for heists and Sacraments. This event will also drop event tickets for the new Shadowy Onyx Indrik mount. You can earn a max of 2 tickets per day per account.
And as always, MFN is Friday nights at 9pm EST.

EVE
Oh, there’s a war happening in EVE too. Apparently they added in PvE to Eve and it completely threw everyone off kilter. Now the slumlords who are used to controlling large swaths of space with Player Owned Structures (POS) are having to actively defend them since they people they’re renting to aren’t or really aren’t helping and now they’re all in an uproar because they actually have to engage with the game content and not the people content.

STO
The 2019 Risian Lohlunat Festival! Starting July 2nd.
https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/playstation/star-trek-online/news/detail/11190533-the-2019-risian-lohlunat-festival%21
It’s almost time for Captains on all three platforms to take a relaxing break on Risa, and get their hands on the T6 Risian corvette, new costumes, emotes, and more!

https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11191503-lifetime-subscription-sale%21
Captains on PC can save $100 on a Lifetime Subscription until August 1st! Get access to tons of ships, playable races and more!

We are working on two Fleet holdings, the Spire and Colony.

MFN is tonight 8:30 Eastern.

GW2
The revived Dragon Bash festival started last week and will run for 2 more weeks. It has been moved to Hoelbrack, and has new races and good loot. There is a new guild hall decoration, a holoprojector that makes a giant Holo krakatoric fly the skies.

Please contribute to the guild hall so we can get this coolest of decorations.

LOTRO
Continued focus on Saturday night MFN fun. Might be looking to get a Monster Play event going later in the summer.
