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

AIE WoW Classic Guild Photo
Sunday, September 15th, 2019
3pm Eastern (Server Time)

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.

SWTOR
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.

CLOSE

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

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

Max>> Guild streaming options update… Discord has added live streaming right into the client. It shares your game screen and puts you and anyone that clicks in to “view” into voice to chat. Keep an eye out for the “live” red icon in the voice channels if you want to check it out. (again note… you will be dropped into voice :) )

NOMADS
Destiny Steam transfer process from Battle.Net has begun. You must transfer your account to Steam by Oct 1st, as the game will stop being playable in BNet as of that date (and be live on Steam)
https://www.bungie.net/7/en/PCMove

No Man’ Sky has been updated this month with to No Man’s Sky Beyond. Hello Games, the developer, has referred to it as No Man’s Sky 2.0. Most of the game systems have been updated or revamped to improve the player experience. Some of the bigger additions to the game are:

VR Support
16-32 player support on planets and stations
Multiplayer missions
Improved Base building
Player Social Hub
Dynamic NPCs
Creature Taming and Riding
Discovery UI Overhaul
Inventory improvements

Dent and Corley are currently searching for a planet that can be used for a community planet where players can build bases, trade, and help each other out in the game. If you played No Man’s Sky when the game first came out, but were disappointed, give it a try now. You might find that things that you didn’t like, have been improved or updated. Post in the Nomads channel if you want to join up in game.

Max>> I played the update some last weekend and can comment if useful.

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.

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 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.

AIE Summer of Love was officially kicked off in SWTOR with a special MEGA event. Not only that, but it was MEGA’s one year anniversary! Marcus entertained the crowd with trivia and prizes contributed by ElionD, Maellung, and Zen as we took on the Ancient Threat on Yavin IV. Many awesome screen shots were taken of us on the beach of Rishi. Check back later for screenshots of us by that vanquished boss….

This week, MFN will be a special SoL version that should be accessible to characters of all levels. Just to be safe, make sure you do have a ship, though

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.

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)

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

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.

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.

SWTOR
The new hotness in SWTOR this month is The Pirate Incursion event on the new planet of Dantooine. That, together with double xp week, has been a prime time for leveling, rep grinding, and grinding just about any other rank or number you’d like to raise. The heroic quests were challenging enough to require groups, so guild groups and community pugs abounded.

There are a number of achievements associated with stuff on Dantooine as well. The planet will be available for exploration and possibly even resource gathering after the event is over, but we don’t know exactly what that will look like until next week. Some of those achievements may be doable then, or may require the event to be in progress. We shall see! After this week, the pirate event will go in rotation with all the existing events.

In guild news, the June MEGA was a pvp night hosted by Marcus and coached by guildie Medullah. Medullah explained the pvp maps and gave insights into what to look for, when to use abilities, and lots of other good info. We used SWTOR’s feature that allows us to have our own instance of a warzone to duke it out between two teams of guildies. We even had a small cheering section. We closed the night with a tour of guildie Liberty’s Stronghold which was really incredible to see. Marcus wants to make Stronghold viewing a staple of MEGA, so if you’d like your Stronghold to be featured, just let him know.

MFN continues on Tuesday nights, starting at 9PM Eastern. This week we ran around on Dantooine and did some grouping up for the heroics.

In ops news after 6 months of working on Dread Fortress Hard Mode Deathstar Troopers we finally killed Brontes.

Also, SUP has cleared five ops and counting, and apparently they’re having more fun than MarcusB. I sense an operation throwdown coming …

Also, great shout out for the Escape Pod Cast on the front page of the SWTOR official site

ESO
At E3 they announced the next two DLC’s for ESO for the Season of the Dragon. They are called Scalebreaker and Dragonhold. No release dates yet though.(edited)
Other then that, MFN’s are still Friday night at 9pm EST.

FFXIV
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is nearly here!
The 3rd (or maybe 4th) expansion of the FFXIV saga!
The Warrior of Light (that’s you, the player) will travel to The First to save that parallel world from the light consuming the world, vastly impacting all worlds. To do so, the Warrior of Light must become the Warrior of Darkness.

Launch Schedule!
Friday June 28th – Start of Early Access (*)
* Have you ever been to a MMO expansion launch before? Queues! Bugs! Impatience abroad! Expect some zaniness if you log in this day, but major MMO launches are quite an experience. Take it all in, but don’t fret if things are not perfect on day 1.

July 2nd – Official Launch of the game. Just in time for the July 4th Holiday for our U.S. members. If you didn’t pre-order, then this is when you will get access to the game.

In Approximately 2 weeks after that, July 16th(ish) –
Patch 5.01, release the story mode of Eden, the first 8 player raid. Usually prior to the first mini-patch, we have access to just Extreme primals in the current expansion. We expect to see the same, but haven’t confirmed it yet.

Another about 2 weeks again…
July 30th(ish) – Patch 5.05, release of the savage mode of Eden (this is between heroic and mythic modes for the WoW raiding comparison, with the end fights usually being on par with mythic). Also, the high end Tomestones of Phantasmagoria will become attenable. Finally, new dungeons will be available, the Dungeons of Lyhe Ghiah.

New expansion features are many, and to hear about those, may I invite you to listen to the last few AIE podcasts, as we dived deep into them for the last few episodes.

But quick recap. New worlds, level cap raised for all jobs to 80 including crafting and gathering jobs, new jobs in Gunbreaker and Dancer, and Machinist got a full rework.
How do you start playing Shadowbringers?

FFXIV is a story first MMO. Meaning, to get to the content organically, you do need to play though the previous MSQ (Main Story Questline) to unlock that content. This includes the base game, “A Realm Reborn” (purchased via the Starter Edition), “Heavensward” (Free to add to your account until June 27th), and then “Stormblood”, which is available via the Stormblood expansion until July 28th, in which it will be part of the Shadowbringers purchase.

Story skips and level skips will be available soon if you want to fork over the cash to get you caught up to Stormblood.

Getting into AIE for FFXIV has never been easier! No UMAMI! No level requirement, and no factions to worry about. Just roll up a character on Goblin, in the Crystal datacenter. Drop down into the AIE discord channel for FFXIV, oddly named #ffxiv, and ask for an invite and one of our happy officers will extend a Free Company (guild) invite over to you.

Membership has been way up since the announcement of Shadowbringers, and has been growing steadily since then. Now, you may be thinking, but what about newer players or people not at Shadowbringers yet? Well, never fret, as the leveling queues will still match up people looking to do their MSQ dungeons or just the leveling queue in general. Furthermore, we have been having some success with two Mandatory Fun Nights a week, Wednesday at 9pm EST and Friday at 11pm EST. If you need something done, that’s a great time to request it to be done. Otherwise, just asking in discord and /fc chat to have some AIE folks join you in your adventures is more than welcome.

Goblin is now a preferred server, meaning if you start up a new character on Goblin, you will get the road to 60 buff, which is a 3x XP buff on all sources, all jobs, up to level 60. This includes all adventure jobs, crafting, and gathering jobs as well.
We can’t wait until we will see everyone in Shadowbringers and will be coming back to the AIE podcast soon to provide some initial thoughts and impressions of the expansion!

STO
Fleet colony is upgrading to tier 1. We unlocked tier 1 of each of the three branches giving us a daily production of resources for the coming projects. I unlocked the coffer donation ability for everyone in the fleet, so they can now donate coming resources even if the projects are currently filled up. Crystalline event is currently going on.

Hmmmm what else….MFN is every Sunday at 8:30 pm Eastern.

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

Looks for input as to which side and what type of server.

WoW Battle for Azeroth –
Patch 8.2 has hit release candidate status on the PTR and if past history is any indication, it should come out around the same time (July 2nd) as the FFXIV expansion. There will be two new zones to explore, tons of daily activities to participate in, and new group content with a new Mega-Dungeon (not to be confused with SWTOR’s Mega events).

Burning Crusade Timewalking starts Tuesday.
Midsummer Fire Festival starts Friday.
Fireworks spectacular on July 4.
Luminous Luminaries is July 13.
Auction House Dance party is making a come back on July 22.

Alliance Guild Update –
The Alliance guild is still going strong. We currently have 167 characters in the guild, and we are adding new people every week.

The Alliance raid team is 4/9 in Normal BFD and we have voted on an official team name. HFO = Hell Froze Over. We raid on Friday nights from 8pm server/Eastern to 11pm. We are recruiting and accepting cross-faction friends.

Due to the generosity of some members, we were able to purchase the 7th bank tab. We used that to have the raid team join the official Raid Bank Tab system.

AIE Summer of Love –
Discussion here
-Summer of Love will be Sunday, July 28th to Saturday August 3rd.
-Syreyne is hosting a World Quest party on Alliance side on Tuesday, July 30.
-Syreyne is hosting Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl on Horde side on Wednesday, July 31.
-Remembrance Day is Friday August 2nd. Please keep an eye out in Discord for locations and times for each game division. WoW will have fireworks after the Walk.

Guild:
MFN on Tuesdays, every Tuesday. Depending on what we do, you may need to be level 50+ to attend in game, but if you are not that high level yet, come join us in discord and chat with us anyway.

June MEGA is coming up! June 14th. Marcus will lead us to victory against the Ancient Threat–a mysterious and powerful entity hidden away on Yavin IV.

FFXIV
Live Letter 51 has dropped. As in dropped the mic, off the table, into a pool of water, with mic-eating bacteria.

TL;DR/L:

6 New Zones
1 New Major City – The Crystarium
2 New Jobs – Gunbreakers (Tank) and Dancer (Ranged DPS)
New Level Cap of 80
Many new job and gameplay adjustments

Long Version:
New Fate System!
In the new Shadowbringers area, fates will reward tokens that can be turned in for special rewards.

Side Quests
All side quests in Shadowbringers are leveled synced for your current level, starting at 70. Even the quest mobs will be synced, much like leves.

Crafting and Gathering Quests
Story based quests for artisans
Will expand on the story and the world of “The First”

Cross-world Linkshells
Expanded to 8 channels, instead of just one.
All AIE members on Goblin should of received an invite to the CrossWorld Linkshell. If not, let us know and we can get you one.
If you are on the Crystal data center, but not in AIE, we would be happy to send you an invite to talk with AIE folk. Just let an officer know or drop on down to the #ffxiv channel in Discord.

Housing items can now be previewed!(FC Housing Manager position still open!)

New Interrupt system
If a skill can be interrupted, you will see the enemy cast bar pulse. You will also see visual feedback that the cast was interrupted.(Much like WoW’s button flashing when you can interrupt)

MP and TP Systems.
The TP is gone!
MP will be capped at 10,000. Skills will use a percentage of your MP, just as it always have. Now the math is easy.

Pet System Redo
Pets are no longer targetable or hurt by enemies or PC actions
Pet actions are removed from pet hotbars because they will be recategorized as normal actions
Pet roles will be revised
A single button will use similar skills, depending on what pet is summoned.

Tank Roles-Biggest change is changing tank stance to an threat generating only stance.

Healer Roles-Healers will be refocused back on a more pure healing role, rather than the hybrid DPS they are now.

DPS Roles-Most DPS roles will have a similar feel, but Machinist is almost like a new job.

Tetsemi- ESO
Elswyer is in early access and so far AIE members have been having a lot of fun creating necromancer toons and slaying dragons. The Dragon fights are world bosses on steroids. It take a lot of people to kill one, but the loot makes it worth the repair bill. We did a couple of the intro quests for the zone for MFN and without spoiling anything, there are a couple of call backs to the main story line which is nice.

MFN happens at 9pm est every Friday night, depending on attendance we do dungeon runs, zone clears, and now possibly dragon hunting.

STO
STO wants to remind you that they are having their normal MFN tonight at 830 Eastern(Right now!)
They are still working on the Fleet Spire and Colony, feel free to hop in to help.

Raid team updates
https://wiki.aie-guild.org/index.php?title=WOW:Raid_Team_Summary#Active_AIE_Raiding_Teams

SWTOR
The next Mega will be… FRIDAY June 14!!! 9pm Eastern IMP SIDE

More news: Our MFN leads have come up with a new idea for our MFN schedule. We’ll be running a series of operations as part of MFN, but since it’s hard to complete the operation in a single night, whatever we don’t finish we will schedule for a following week. The trick there is that a handful of heroes will go in early, before MFN, and clear some of the bosses to get the MFN group a progressed lockout. Should be fun and should get more people a chance to see end bosses.

The launch date for 5.10.3 “The Dantooine Incursion” is set for 5/28/19. Pirates, pets, mounts, new armor looks, decos and even an Ugnaught companion! Ok, one pet. But lots of pirates.

ESO
Early access to Elsweyr begins on May 20th and official release is June 4th. Please save the beginning quest for that zone on at least one toon until the the first MFN after the official launch because our MFN that night will be starring that zone together. Until then MFN’s will be zone clears and dungeon runs every Friday night at 9pm EST

EVE
A EVE Titan in every pot!
Guaranteed stupid
Wacky space politics
Informative food pictures
Community health support program
A literature corner
Deep philosophical discussions on the role of man and his/her place in the universe
A distinguished panel of art experts discussion foreign cinema (animation specific)
Reviews and commentary on upcoming and recent video game releases
All of this and more if you join AIE
Your mileage may vary
Plus the privilege of getting blown up in one of @Lanctharus hair brained space exploits
AIEU confirmed Space Tomfoolery since some time last week
increase your daily sodium intake due to increased tear production if you play EVE

GW2
The living world season 4’s final episode, War Eternal is out. It features a new mount, the skyscale dragon, that can hover and climb walls. Be sure to log in to a toon to unlock the episode even if you don’t have Path of Fire.

They also released a new legendary weapon, the great sword Exordium. This is the final legendary weapon that was promised us for Heart of Thorns, and was worth the wait, having many custom animation and transformations.

FFXIV
The Event poll is still up, if you are listening to this live. The poll will close at 11:59pm EST on Sunday. Get your voices heard!
The FFXIV x FFXV crossover event is still running until May 27th! There is still time to get the car 4-player mount. We will be running the Jackpot II FC buff on the weekends to help get those MGPs to get that mount.
Reminder, Shadowbringers: Early Access for pre-orders starts up on June 28th. Pre-ordering today also get you an earring that levels with you and gives you an xp bonus to level 70 on all battle classes. (If it sounds like a WoW Heirloom, is because it acts almost identical to it.)
The next FFXIV Live Letter is scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd at 1:30pm EST from media tour in San Francisco. We are expecting to hear some more details on Shadowbringers, job changes, and the ever mysterious “miscellaneous announcements.” This live letter will include the translators, so no need to brush up on your Japanese to understand what is going on!
This can change every Tuesday, but as of this recording, Goblin, the server that AIE plays on, is a preferred server for new characters. New characters created during this time will get a double xp bonus on all xp sources, all jobs, until level 60.
Again, if you only have the starter edition, Heavenward, the first expansion, is free for you for a limited time. Just head over to the SE store and “buy” it for 0 dollars and 0 cents. PS4 folks, you can get the same deal on the PSN.

LOTRO
Maellung Arrowshield is continuing to run Saturday Night LOTRO (SNL) on Saturdays at 2030 Eastern.
The anniversary event ends tonight, 19 May. So hopefully you finished all the quests and turned in your tokens for the rewards. If you have been trying to figure out what to spend your LOTRO points on,
Stat Tomes
Regeneration Food
Run Speed Boosts
Attack Damage Boosts
Are currently 20% off, through May 23rd.

And with that, let’s get back to Corley and Dent and find out what’s going on in Star Trek Online.

GAME NEWS
Captain’s Log 20190519

Fleet Updates
Last week we completed construction on our Tier 2 Spire in the Dyson’s Sphere. Our goal is to complete the Spire to Tier 3. In Star Trek Online we have many bases that the fleet can visit and hangout in. They are similar to the Guild Ships in SWTOR, but also unlock gear and abilities that players can purchase for their characters.
Most Sunday Nights we have an MFN at 8:30 PM Eastern. We usually run new content and if there’s an event going on we will run that. Like all good engineers, we work on getting a little more out of those warp cores, or whatever bit of tech needs adjusting. Episodes are sometimes run if a new player needs help leveling.

Major Game Updates
New Reputation was release this week, Discovery Legends. This new reputation is Discovery themed that includes three new sets of gear, Burnham’s Resolve (3 Piece Ground Set), Lorca’s Ambition (3 Piece Space Weapon Set) and Stamets-Tilly’s Ingenuity(4 Piece Space Set).
Along with the release of the new reputation, a new season of episodes was released, Rise of Discovery. So far two episodes have been released and focus around what happens prior to when Lorca takes command of the Discovery. For these episodes they were able to get Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma to reprise their roles of Lorca and Landry. Aren’t holodeck fantastic?
Tier 6 ship are now able to be used at any level and are not locked to endgame players. They scale as you level so their slots and stats match what ships of your character’s level should be.
Another thing with Tier 6 ships, STO has release a mechanism where you can earn a T6 100% discount coupon to purchase a free T6 ship for your account. It takes a long time to complete and requires playing new content to earn the tokens.

We had an all officer meeting over the weekend and do that periodically, on top of meetings more often in individual game divisions. Blizzcon planning for meetups was a key point of discussion and the posts in #events outline the current plan.

We are also working on some minor updates around the guild websites and other communication tools, so keep an eye out for that.

The various streams and podcasts for AIE are a really great way to see what’s going on and engage. We are always looking for more AIE streams, blogs, etc to get posted to the content creators channel and really like seeing that stuff there.

The fleet spire is constructing tier 2 upgrade and will complete in just over 6 days. This will unlock the fleet variants of the veteran ships.

Also, Star Trek Online is free to play and we have MFNs most Sunday nights at 8:30 PM Eastern. In an upcoming week, for MFN, we will focus on low level characters to help new players go through missions and story. You just need to finish the tutorial missions

There are also close to releasing a new rep, Discovery Legends.

ESO
The anniversary event ends this week after 5 fun fill weeks of cake. Early access to Elsweyr begins on May 20th and official release is June 4th. Please save the beginning quest for that zone on at least one toon until the the first MFN after the official launch because our MFN that night will be starring that zone together. Until then MFN’s will be zone clears and dungeon runs every Friday night at 9pm EST.

EVE
War continues and the merge of some global factions into the mix has made things interesting. The corp is always looking for new pilots and spies. It’s a bit of a dive down the rabbit hole but the team there is always happy to support everyone.

GW2
Lots of people working on alts at the moment. MFN groups still get together on Mondays on occasion. Check in with Dejara to get something going. Also check the Discord channel pins for a new reference post that does a good job of laying out the open world changes that have occurred over time.

FFXIV
The callback campaign is on. Have someone from the FC or someone on your friend’s list send you an in-game invite back to the game. Doing so will get you reward for both of you!
April 25-June 3rd.

The invited player must have an expired sub for 90 days and still have their account in good standing (i.e. not be banned).

The invited player will get 7 days of free game time, 99 Aetheryte tickets (free teleports, 1 per ticket), and 10 silver chocobo feathers which can be turned in for gear to get caught back up.
The inviter will get 10 gold chocobo feathers, which can be used to buy items like the Twintania mount, 2 person chocobo mount, rare dyes, or Aetheryte tickets of your own.

The FFXIV x FFXV crossover event is still going until May 27th.
If you complete this level 50 event, you can then purchase cosmetic items, such as the Regalia, the game only 4 person mount, currently.
The mount costs 200,000 Manderville Gold Saucer (MGP) points. To assist, the Free Company will be running the FC buff, “Jackpot 2” on Saturday and Sunday during the event. This will provide a bonus of all MGP rewards.

Various ways of getting MGP have been discussed in the #ffxiv channel in discord, so drop on by if you want some ideas on farming them up. With the current rewards and the buff, many players have been able to get enough MGP in 1-2 weeks of time.

If you are on the starter edition, including the Twitch Prime promotion, Square Enix is providing Heavenward for free until June 27th. Once this is added to your account, you get to keep it permanently. This includes the PC version, MacOS, and PS4 editions.

https://store.na.square-enix-games.com/en_US/ffxiv_heavensward_free

Heavensward is the continuing story of the game to the kingdom of Ishgard, where the Warrior of Light is thrusted into the Dragonsong War and awesome music. This will include all content in the expansion, including patch 3.5, The Far End of Fate which sets the stage for Stormblood.

Shadowbringers is still slated for release on July 2nd, with pre-order getting a head start starting on June 28th. If you pre-order this expansion, you get access to all previous expansions on the head start date.

The FC vault still has some goodies. If you need something from there, grab it! We are trying to populate it with some cosmetics and some other helpful items. Feel free to grab something that strikes your fancy! The Vault is available in all major cities and the FC house.

The Shadowbringers Media Tour will be hitting mid May. We are expecting to get some details on the new classes of Gunbreaker and Dancer classes at this time.

Drop on down to the FFXIV channel and we can help you get started in your Final Fantasy adventure (not to be confused with Final Fantasy Adventure, the old Game Boy Final Fantasy. Totally different things).
