With new territory comes lots of new infrastructure to build including Factories, Space Port, Dry Dock, and Voxel Work Space.

Salvaging is back in the game! So if you ever wanted to be a treasure hunter now if your opportunity.

WoW
See Game Notes

WoW Classic
Sunday Fundae

SWTOR
During MFN this past week, we completed the HK-51 questline with many Imperial guildies getting their HK-51 companion and a few getting their umpty-umpth one.
In the previous week, we ran an Operation on the Pub side.

November MEGA will be a Black Friday MEGA. Lighthearted and fun activities will abound.

The public test server is up and three new things are on there to try out and test: Login Rewards, a new Emote system, and a new Flashpoint. Log into the public test server to check them out and provide feedback.

Come see what’s going on ingame on Friday nights. Depending on the date, it could be Master Mode Flashpoints, Achievements, or MEGA!

FFXIV
Map nights continue to run Saturday nights at 9:30pm EST, meeting up at the FC house prior to rolling out. Maps, loot, fun to be had, just show up. Maps are not required to attend. Being level 80 and all of the Shadowbringers zones unlocked are needed, in case you dinged 80 prior to unlocking the “final” zone (spoilers, but hey, Shadowbringers has been out for awhile now.) Flying does not have to be unlocked, as we do have many folks with multi-person mounts now. If you don’t have an 80 yet, stay tuned as we do fill in level 70 and level 60 map nights from time to time.

Thursday nights, AIE is also venturing into the Bozjern (BOSH-jen) Front to help unlock the rewards from the new zone and progress though the story of the Bozjern Resistance take the fight to the IVth (4th) Imperial Legion. Again we meet up at the FC house, but at 9:30PM EST. Being part of a group is much safer and much more fun in this content. Hope to see you there.

The next live letter is set for November 27th, and people are predicting the release date of patch 5.4 will be December 8th. With that, a new treasure dungeon will be released, and more phat lewts for the taking!

ESO
Recent MFN’s have been focused on clearing zones of Skyshards, exploring delves and public dungeons, and killing world bosses.
We have continued the tradition of following Kini off cliffs and getting lost while searching for Skyshards.

Weekly MFN’s will be either zone clears, public dungeon clears, or dungeon runs until the next event.

Please feel free to raid the guild bank for items your characters might need.

STO
Fleet is still working on tier 3 upgrades for the spire and embassy.
There is an lifetime subscription sale going on now until December 10th. $100 off. So right now only $199.99
That i@dent does fleet nights on Sunday at 8:30 pm eastern

GW2
New Episode drops on Nov 17th. Voice Acting is being added to the last 2 episodes. If you log in when the new story chapters are added, you will get them for free.

https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/watch-the-trailer-for-the-icebrood-saga-champions-chapter-1/

Dungeons and more run Friday November 20th at 9pm eastern

LOTRO
During SNL we did Harvestmath events and took advantage of the 25% skirmish marks event

The next Chicken Play Race is being planned for January
We will be going back into PvMP after the next update

PvMP focused update has been on Bullroarer (PTS)

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

GAME NEWS
Scourgebusters Event:
We had 23 people participate in the Scourge Busters week long transmog event in Discord, including one person from Final Fantasy!

Winners are:
First Place is Darowyn from the Horde with 6 votes and a transmog from the original scourge invasion!
Places 2-5 were a tie with 5 votes each!
Ari from the Alliance
Ulto Dee from the Alliance
Jason (Pycelle) from the Horde
Dazhnabog (Secondaid) from Final Fantasy

It was exciting to see a cross-game participate! Thank you everyone that joined in on the fun. The contest may be over, but the Discord channel is still up so go take a look at the awesome ideas everyone came up with!

Shadowlands Block Parties:
Gustytail is hosting a pre-expansion block party in Orgrimmar for the 2 hours before Shadowlands launches. Bring fireworks, extra pets, mog gear, and more! There will be parades, shenanigans, and fun! Bring anything you want to clear out your bags, old feasts, boozy toys, etc. Have you been to our events? Ever thought about helping out? Never knew what to do or who to ask? Now’s your chance! Gusty is looking for someone that has the time to host an equally awesome party for the Alliance in Stormwind at the same time! Flag her down in Discord and volunteer for fun!

Pre-Patch:
Speaking of Shadowlands, there are some pre-patch events going on now. Mostly, everyone is heading for Icecrown to battle the lag boss, I mean the party train….no really, the killing of the rares. They drop ilvl 100 gear, which is great for all those new level 50 alts everyone is making with the 16th anniversary buff. There is also a “new” world boss that drops weapons and has a super cool cinematic.

Wowhead has a really nice guide to help navigate the pre-patch events. Check it out on their website, or click the link in the show notes.
https://www.wowhead.com/guides/shadowlands-deaths-rising-prelaunch-event-scourge-invasions

#QuestforCoguild
Well, as you should know, we are present on both the Horde and the Alliance in WoW retail. But things are a bit unbalanced. I mean, the Horde has 11 co-guilds and the Alliance only has one. Let’s build up our numbers and fight the good fight in Shadowlands!

To make that happen, Blue Side is launching a new campaign, Quest for Coguild. We want to invite everyone to try out the Alliance side. Join us in Stormwind. Wear blue, not red! So pick up the gauntlet and share your best campaign slogans in Discord or on twitter @AIEGuild with #QuestforCoguild. Thanks Kazrik for the hashtag idea!

Here is a sample of the ones we came up with during Friday night raid.
Sareynna: AIE Alliance: Keep a leader for more than one expansion.
Fez: AIE Alliance: We don’t have trolls in trade chat.
Fez: AIE Alliance: We don’t eat babies.
Kazrik: AIE Alliance: Same AIE family, same AIE fun!!
Reznikov: AIE Alliance: When world PvP feels too easy.
Ulto Dee: AIE Alliance: We got Leeeeeroooooooy Jennnnnnkinsss!

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

Twitter: @SyreyneAIE

Next time, we’ll be talking to Guest in Game. So until then, AIE…

New Ships and Buildings are being constructed by all the members of the Org. This week be sure to check out pictures of PkhBasko’s latest ship in the Dual Universe channel in Discord.
Max meanwhile is busy working at building the first Anti-Grav ship in the Org. We all can’t wait to see what he comes up with.

The Org is currently planning for the next Alioth Aerospace Expo to be held in January.
The Org is also looking at possible relocation sites with room for all to gather together.

The biggest news in DU this week is that the current area Safe Zone Triangle will be remaining PVP free. This opens up several more planets and moons along with a large area of space in which people can safely build without concern for having their assets blown up by pirates.

WoW
WoW’s Anniversary is now live with a 16% Rep and Experience bonus
Shadowlands pre-patch is dropping November 10th with in-game events and keep an eye on Noob Raid for the pre-patch World Boss.
Shadowlands expansion launch is Monday November 23rd at 3pm PST/6pm EST as it’s a world wide simultaneous launch.
Normal/Heroic raiding opens on Dec 8th, with Mythic/LFR Wing 1 launching on December 15th. LFR Wing 2 will launch Jan 5th, and the rest of the LFR wings will open every two weeks after.

The Alliance guild hit over 600 members with all the people creating new alts or bringing characters over due to the 30% off Blizzard services sale.

The in game Guild Finder is how we do many of our invites, please remember, once you’ve put in an application, on either side, the officers will review and approve the application. Once it’s been approved, you need to go back to the Guild/Community Panel and accept the approved invitation and you’ll be in the guild.

WoW Classic
The UO raid team cleared BWL for the second time!
Join us for MC on Saturdays, BWL on Sundays, and starting on AQ40 with 1/9 bosses so far!
Guild chat is connected via Greenwall with United Orgrimmar, so feel free to chat and group up to level with our friends!

Vanilla “Sundae” Fundays is starting a tentative holiday schedule for November/December. So keep an eye on the discord channel for updates each week! And due to the time change we will be starting at 1pm Eastern!

If you’re active in WoW Retail that means you’re able to play WoW Classic too! Let us know if you make a toon, need a guild invite, or bags to get started!

SWTOR
During MFN this past week, among other things, BC took us all the Nar Shaddaa to make sure we had one of the missions from the new Feast of Prosperity event, and then we went to kill the WB for that mission. By the end of the evening, we basically had our Conquest target for the week well handled. We also came in Mandalorian garb to celebrate the beginning of season 2 of The Mandalorian. You can see a pic on discord in #ssoritdh
Last month’s MEGA was epic! Not only did we have spooky costumes, but we got together and acquired the Fleet Datacron. It was very gratifying to see how many people still needed it and were able to get it.

Repeat PSA: If you have not acquired your Vanguard Squadron inspired mini-pet (offered due to the release of Star Wars: Squadrons), be sure to log in before NOV 7th.

Be sure to log in on Friday nights for MM Flashpoints, Achievements, and MEGAs! Also, let BC and Marcus know if you have things you’d like to see us do for MFN or MEGA.

ESO
Recent MFN’s have been focused on killing the various bosses as part of the Witches Festival that runs through November 3rd at 10 AM Est.
We have continued the tradition of following Kini off cliffs and getting lost while searching for Skyshards.

Weekly MFN’s will be either zone clears, public dungeon clears, or dungeon runs until the next event.

Please feel free to raid the guild bank for items your characters might need.

FFXIV
Map nights continue to run Saturday nights at 9:30pm EST, meeting up at the FC house prior to rolling out. Maps, loot, fun to be had, just show up. Maps are not required to attend. Being level 80 and all of the Shadowbringers zones unlocked are needed, in case you dinged 80 prior to unlocking the “final” zone (spoilers, but hey, Shadowbringers has been out for awhile now.) Flying does not have to be unlocked, as we do have many folks with multi-person mounts now. If you don’t have an 80 yet, stay tuned as we do fill in level 70 and level 60 map nights from time to time.

Thursday nights, AIE is also venturing into the Bozjern (BOSH-jen) Front to help unlock the rewards from the new zone and progress though the story of the Bozjern Resistance take the fight to the IVth (4th) Imperial Legion. Again we meet up at the FC house, but at 9:30PM EST. Being part of a group is much safer and much more fun in this content. Hope to see you there.

STO
The Spire holding and Embassy holding are working toward their last tier upgrade projects and they will be done.

@Dent still is running the Fleet nights on Sunday at 8:30 PM Eastern.

GW2
November 30 is the next dungeons and more night starting at 8 central/ 9 eastern. Mad Kings runs till November 3 so make sure you get in there while you can.

LOTRO
The Harvestmath Festival is back through 11/24. We are also looking to bring back the Chicken Play race in the near future so stay tuned for more details.

And with that, let’s go around the table for our question of the episode!

The new co-guild for invites is Fortuna! (best subguild)
If you are making a new alt that isn’t an allied race, DK, or DH, make sure you check out Exile’s Reach. The story is solid, and the quest/level pacing is really well done.
Update your addons, you may need to switch to Alpha builds until things get sorted out, but most addons have updated. If they haven’t, check the comments on the addon website, sometimes they’ll be a quick fix there while waiting for a release.

WoW Classic
The UO raid team cleared BWL for the second time!
Join us for MC on Saturdays, BWL on Sundays, and AQ40 just around the corner.
Guild chat is connected via Greenwall with United Orgrimmar, so feel free to chat and group up to level with our friends!

Hallow’s End is here! If you need an event refresher, Wowhead has a great WoW Classic guide to follow!
Vanilla “Sundae” is taking a break on Sunday, Oct. 25th but will be back with tentative November/December schedule.

If you’re active in WoW Retail that means you’re able to play WoW Classic too! Let us know if you make a toon, need a guild invite, or bags to get started!

SWTOR
We completed another night of the HK-51 questline in MFN and will most likely finish it on the next pub-side MFN. For part of the night we had to break into groups, so we had some extra temporary voice channels. Best voice channel names EVAR, including such favorites a #Meatbags and #Lump of Grease.
Our Sun night operations teams have been combining to run 16 man ops. Having 16 people running around puts a new spin on familiar mechanics. Also, achievements!
Conquest changes coming this week. We will be monitoring to see how it affects our ability to make large targets on both factions.

MEGA coming on October 23rd (This Friday!). We will be doing a spooky costume contest to start the night. Marcus is going to lead us in acquiring the Fleet Datacron. If you don’t have it yet, do not miss this. It takes a group and some fairly heavy duty cat herding to get it done. Afterwards open world pvp with @Corley .
We are looking forward to the new event coming in Swtor starting this Tuesday – Feast of Prosperity. The Hutts want to celebrate. What could go wrong there! Also, the Rakghouls will be in town at the same time, so Eyeless can look forward to getting killed again. We would poke his eyes out, but well, you know.

If you have not acquired your Vanguard Squadron inspired mini-pet (offered due to the release of Star Wars: Squadrons), be sure to log in before Nov 7th.

Be sure to log in on Friday nights for MM Flashpoints, Achievements, and MEGAs!

ESO
Recent MFN’s have been focused on clearing zones and doing public dungeons.
We have continued the tradition of following Kini off cliffs and getting lost while searching for Skyshards.

The Witches festival begins Oct 22 at 10 AM EST and runs though November 3 at 10 AM EST
MFN’s during the event will be focused on killing various bosses for the daily Plunder Skull rewards

On Tuesday October 20th at 12PM EST Pete Hines will be joining the Bethesda UK Stream Team at https://twitch.tv/bethesda to show off some of the Greymoor content while raising money for the Cancer Research UK charity. They will have drops active so tune in to support a good cause and get in game loot.

Remember to raid the guild bank for any items your character might need.

STO
The big fleet need is that both Spire and Embassy holdings are nearing completion.

The widening Gyre event is going on now and as part of the ways to add to the completion is a new TFO (dungeon) called Synth Wave. This is from the show Picard. Getting 20 days off completion gets you a full space set.

All T5 and T6 can now have an experimental upgrade to them, making them a little more powerful. This gives you a universal console slot, another ship trait slot (linked to the ship though), and another device slot. Everyone gets one free experimental ship upgrade per account, but you can buy more from the Zen store at 1000 Zen for 1 or 2000 Zen for 3.

MFN on Sundays are still going strong.

GW2
Realm of the Mad King festival runs through November 3. October 23 Maellung will be hosting once again (if his internet returns) a dungeon run. We had a great time last month and it is returning once again. Mad King’s Labyrinth is one of the best gold/xp farms in the game. Just hop in LFG, and find a squad in an open map and ride the zerg to cash. You can either open your trick or treat bags, or sell them on the trading post for decent coin.

LOTRO
If you are worried that you missed the chicken play race, have no fear it has been pushed back to this Saturday October 24th. We will have prizes to everyone who attends. We are also expecting an announcement of when the new expansion pack will go live any day now. Also we have been given great news that the devs will be working on finally balancing the monsters in PvMP.

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

GAME NEWS
Patch 5.35 has dropped with some interesting developments and additions to the game.

The highlight is the Bozjan Front. This is the next phase of the resistance weapon quest chain, although it is not required to upgrade the resistance weapon.

The zone consists of a staged zone, where you stay in the lower zone until you level and quest your way up, then you unlock the 2nd area, then the 3rd. It uses an independent leveling system. All jobs are scaled up to level 80 and jobs that are level 71+ can enter, so it could be used as a 71+ leveling zone.

The primary goal is to find Skirmishes, which are like FATEs in the main game world. These will reward some gil, experience (for leveling jobs), tomestones, and mettle, which is the experience point system for The Bozjan Front. Sometimes, a completed Skirmish will trigger a special Critical Engagement, which you will be prompted to queue up for. When you join one, it carves out a little piece of the zone as an arena for the 48 players for the encounter. This is a full boss encounter, with high health, mechanics, and overall fun fight. Once that concludes and loot is is awarded (mettle, tomestones, lockboxes, and relic weapon items), there is a chance that it will trigger a Solo Critical Engagement, and someone who was in the first Critical Engagement will be selected to fight a boss, one-on-one as the rest of the player can spectate or go about their business. Lots of cheering and emoting happens during these events.

There are drops that can be used as lockboxes for items, cosmetics, pets, and lost action, consumable actions that can be used in the Bozjern Front.

Also, items can be acquired in the front to upgrade the relic weapon. These can drop from any mob in the front, either in the skirmish or not. These items can also be acquired outside of this new zone, via fates in the Heavensward expansion. There is a 2nd step to get items from the Bozjan Front but can be acquired by running level 60 dungeons or your first Leveling roulette of the day.

As AIE, we ran the new Bozjern Front and it provided enough battle and randomness that makes map nights fun. We ran it as a group (with people bowing in and out as they wished), and it was a ton of fun. Skirmishes, critical engagements, and lots of fun all around. We will continue to run this content on Thursday nights, 8:30pm-ish (Final start time to be decided, ask in the #FFXIV channel for updates).

Other content in this .x5 patch include updates to the skybuilders’ crafting relics, a few new minions, hairstyles, emotes, mounts, new seasons for the Feast (competitive PvP), and for the first players to log in for 5 minutes when the patch went live, new housing plots.

Map nights continue to be a big draw. A level 80 character is required, but maps will be provided. If you bring your own maps, that is greatly appreciated. Maps are tons of fun, highly profitable, casual content that helps players at all skill levels and play types, either you be an end game raider looking for gil and tomestones, a casual player looking for cosmetics and gil, or someone casually playing looking for some fun and some gil.

Patch 5.4 is coming over the horizon, estimated to drop sometime in December. Aside from the normal “Even” numbered patches (last installment of the Eden raid, game adjustments, ect), we will be getting a 2nd type of map dungeon. For those that have done maps in the Storblood content, there is a 2nd type of map that acts like a wheel of fortune, and the screenshot that we have so far looks similar. AIE Map nights will surely be looking forward to this once we get our hands on it.

As a group, we are looking at expanding our fun nights to adding a bit more structure. We have been tossing around the idea of having legacy raid nights, doing past content that player may not have done themselves in previous expansions. We also want to do some story raids, such as Eden, Omega, or the Dark Apocalypse raids on a regular schedule. See the #FFXIV channel for details on this.

Dual Universe Update
AIE in Dual Universe has been participating in the Ship Expo this weekend showing off a few of our shiny ships we've been busy building in the game for others to see and experience.
Testing of our latest ship designs continues as we work to constantly improve them.
Check out the Recent Blog post Max wrote up recently on aie-guild.org for a bit more in depth information about what Dual Universe is, what we're up to and a few pictures of just some of our ships.

Mining trips continue as we work towards building Anti-Grav technology. Some of the more rare materials still elude our grasps, but we hope to soon find them.

Dual Universe
Members have been busy building new ships and have started making their way to far off planets
The Organization is taking weekly trips to visit and mine distant planets
The Org has new “My First Space Haulers” to hand out to new players who want to travel into space without having to build a ship first.

This week’s upcoming mining trip will be to the distant dry rocky planet on the far edges of the solar system in search of a mysterious elusive ore.
Work is progressing on the Org’s new ship dedicated to finding and transporting ore.

The devs are hard at work improving the game every day while in beta. This week we got our first set of in-game emotes (Bow, Clap, Point, and Wave) and it has already opened a new level of interaction within the game’s community.

For anyone interested in checking out Dual Universe Catavarie has a couple beta invites, you can find him in the Dual Universe channel under Nomads in the Discord.

Skills and Talents, a glimpse at the Sorceress Enchantment system, and the end-game progression system.

WoW
Welcome “Where Is The Tank?” (WITT) to the Raid Team Guild Bank Program! We still have 1-2 co-guilds left unclaimed if any raid teams want to join up before Shadowlands drops. Contact Syreyne for more details!
HFO was 2% from killing N’Zoth! We’ll get him next week. We are still recruiting for the Alliance raid team. Friday from 8pm-11pm.
Speaking of raiding, while many raid teams may be on break, recruiting for Shadowlands will be starting up soon. If you are interested in raiding in WoW, post a notice in the raid recruitment channel in Discord, or contact the team lead for any team posting “looking for more”.
Brewfest is still going on for a few more days! Get your brew on!
And DMF is starting. Don’t forget to grab your buff while you finish panic leveling your alts!

Also, good news and bad news that’s really good news. We have a pre-patch date, October 13th! This will be the 9.01 patch that brings in all the changes we’ve talked about before, but none of the Shadowlands content. Keep an eye on Noob raid for events related to the pre-patch world boss.

And bad news that’s actually good news, the launch of Shadowlands has been delayed till later this year. Blizzard is back to, “We’ll release it when it’s ready.” mode, and Tetsemi, for one, is glad to see it.

WoW Classic
They cleared Blackwing Lair 9/9

SWTOR
Swoop Racing came and went (again). As the the newest event that Bioware has added to the game, it’s still pretty fresh and people are still getting achievements and rep.

A brand new event is on the public test server now, called Feast of Prosperity. Drop in and give it a test. Bioware is asking for feedback and making changes based on it, so check it out. The event is about food and cooking and philanthropy (maybe), so what could possibly go wrong?

Friday nights in SWTOR has become our variety night. Every other week, we have Master Mode Flashpoints. On in-between weeks, we have Achievements. And then once a month we have MEGA. I mean, I might have run out of Fridays, there, but don’t count! Tuesday nights are still MFN and we still have lots of Operations teams running regularly. If you are interested in participating just drop into discord and ask about any of these activities.

Bioware is trying new things recently to try to stem toxicity, especially in pvp matches. Just hearing about it reminds me of how grateful I am for the AIE community which affords me a bubble where I don’t have to experience or even think about toxicity in gaming. Good luck to Bioware in their efforts and yay for AIE!

Double XP/Renown/Valor is ongoing until 10/13!

ESO
MFN on Friday was spent doing the 3 daily quests in Skyrim to earn loot and event tickets for the current event.
Most of us have spent time over the last week digging in the dirt for cool antiquities
We spent some time touring the new house we earned for all the digging.

MFN on Friday as usual which will either be dungeons or a zone clear

Don’t forget to claim the reward we earned in the Crown store for all the digging we did. It will only be available until October 15th at 10 am EST. “Lost Treasures of Skyrim” includes pet, body/face paint, a house guest, and a house for that house guest to guest in. “Antiquarian’s Alpine Home”

Raid the guild bank for recipes, style pages, and motifs. There are plenty in there.

STO
The biggest need is that we have a KDF fleet now for those looking for a home for their KDF faction captains. The name is Alea Iacta Est Honoris.

All members should know that the Fed side will be everyone’s main priority, so it will not likely progress as quickly with fleet holdings.

As for other things in the game, Cryptic has been dropping a lot of news on new things coming, from a new TFO (dungeon) based on stuff from the Picard show, to experimental ship upgrades.

For the fleet, we have been making huge strides forward with the fleet holdings and as such have several large projects in progress. As these large projects take considerably more resources, it may appear progress has slowed, when likely it has not and the big projects are just taking most of the fleet resources

GW2
Monday fun nights, Jehdai would like to get at least 5 people so he can drag them through dungeons and fractals.

FFXIV
Lots of armor and weapon appearances have been collected and folks are showing off their glamours (transmogs)
We had a blast at map night and both groups got some good loot, but Kelseer’s luck continued and no 5th floor for his group.
Some new folks have joined recently, come visit the FC house and see what’s going on!

Map nights are on Saturday Nights at 9:30 pm Eastern
MFN’s are on Wednesday at 9:00 pm Eastern

Looking forward to that, we have patch 5.35 on the horizon. This one will expand on the Resistance Weapon, upgrading our resistance weapons, similar to the relics in previous expansions that we received in the previous patch.

“Guild bank is full, everyone needs to come get some recipes!”

And with that, let’s get back to Maellung and find out what’s going on in Lord of the Rings Online.

GAME NEWS
Chicken play race event details
Update 28: New expansion pack War of Three Peaks details
What is coming later

CLOSE

http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-353-pvp-and-conquest-changes-preview/

PvP and Conquest changes are coming, so we take a look.

Imperium Ludi
In Dual Universe AIE has built and tested its first warp drive. And we continue to explore new planets each week. Several members are building their first space capable ships and we hope to have a small fleet of space faring ships operational soon.

AIE now has a solid guild organization in Dual Universe carving out both personal and guild territory, buildings and ships. As the beta becomes more and more stable, the economy, ship building and advanced design is really taking off. Catavarie has taken the lead and has built and tested the first warp capable guild ship. We are exploring new planets each week. Several members are claiming main planet territory and building new space capable ships. We hope to have a small fleet of planet hopping ships operational soon with fleet operations, carrier jumps, and other guild activities to come. Check out the #dual-universe Discord channel for pictures of the cool builds and tons of Q&A.

NOMADS
The #nomads channel has also been busy for us lately with excursions into the new Avengers game, some free time in Star Citizen, continued grouping and progression in Desitiny 2 and The Division 2, Call of Duty running a group weekly, and some No Many Sky update discussions. Animal Crossing turnip trade is still strong as well! If anyone is looking for more AIE in any of these be sure to post in the #nomads channel or the dedicated channels for Animal Crossing, Destiny, The Division and Dual Universe. We also want to hear about any other new games you might be playing and what AIE should do to get involved.

Destiny 2
Happy birthday, Destiny turns six: https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49527

The Beyond the Light expansion is just a few months away, make sure to continue your progress on the missions/planets that will be archived soon.

Soon the Guardians closest ally, our Ghosts, will receive an update that includes more customizability and additional mod slots. Read more about it at
This Week at Bungie news: https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49575

Tuesday, 22 Sep, Destiny 2 will be available on XBox via the Game Pass.

If you would like to join AIE in Destiny 2, please holler in the #destiny2 AIE Discord channel or put in an application at https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=2122972 . It’s been relatively quiet there though I have seen people online in voice. If you’re active, please seek each other out to accomplish your goals before the expansion arrives.

Diablo 3
The latest season continues with some folks in AIE popping in and out of the game. If you need any help completing your season, please holler in the Discord #nomads channel.

Division 2
Big news for Agents in The DIvision 2. In just a few days, the game will be kicking off Title Update 11 which includes Season 3 and a new PvE mode that presents highly replayable, progressively generated building of 100 floors. This new feature is called The Summit: can you reach the top?

WoW Classic
Vanilla Sundae Fundays

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

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

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

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

SWTOR
On the game events side of things:

Double XP/Renown/Valor has started and will last about a month. It’s a great time to get alts leveled up or work on the Renown or Valor achievements.

Swoop Racing is back next week and we’ll be working on finishing up our reputation for the cool swoop rewards

For guild events:
Tuesday nights MFN continue to be big and we had a bunch of fun in the Explosive Conflict operations this week

Friday nights look like they will now be rotating every other week between Flash Point nights and Achievement nights, open to everyone in the guild

This month’s MEGA (Monthly Epic Guild Activity) will be coming up in the next two weeks and Mega will be going to meet the Dread Masters. In Dread Fortress. With some other fun squeezed in.

Side note:
Steam achievements are catching everyone’s attention and Steam continues to be a great update
There’s still a couple weeks left for the Shae Vizla companion for subbing anytime during 8/28 to 10/5

ESO
The conclusion to the Dark Heart of Skyrim year long even was announced and will be called Markarth. The new DLC will take you to the Reach area of Skyrim with a new zone, storyline, and solo arena. This DLC will release on November 2 for PC/Mac and November 10th for consoles, however it and Update 28 will be available on the PTS on September 21st.

The prologue quest line is now active and available in the crown store and will take you on an adventure that leads you directly into the main storyline of the Markarth DLC and the end of the year long event.

In addition to the announcement for the DLC, starting next week a new in-game event called The Lost Treasures of Skyrim for players that own Greymoor will start. It is a community based event with three tiers of collectible rewards that include cosmetics, a pet, a house, and houseguests. Unlocking these rewards will be done via the new Antiquities system and the more treasures everyone digs up, the quicker the community earns the rewards. In addition, during the event there will be bonus rewards available. In the Skyrim zone, all of the resource nodes, except for fishing nodes, will provide double rewards and all of the world bosses, delve bosses, and trial bosses will have a chance to drop additional loot and all of the daily quest will give double reward boxes when completed and the first daily quest of the day will drop a reward box that can contain crafting mats, style and set items, maps, surveys, motifs, and furnishing recipes. As will all of the recent events, you will get 3 event tickets you can spend at the Impresario of feathers, berries, and other items.

For our Mandatory Fun event on Friday, we will be taking a look at the new prologue quest as well as rampaging through Skyrim doing the daily quests to earn rewards and get loot.

FFXIV
We have patch 5.35 on the horizon. This one will expand on the Resistance Weapon, upgrading our resistance weapons, similar to the relics in previous expansions that we received in the previous patch. Also, the existing housing plots will be expanded significantly, adding not only more sections, but additional subdivisions too. There may be some opportunity to purchase a home of your own at this time.

In FC events, fun nights are still fun, and fun can be had even outside the fun nights. Groups are happening for all levels, at nearly all hours of the day. Plus the #ffxiv channel is moving all throughout the day for news, discussions, questions, answers, and amusing bits. Guides, tips, and other resources can be found in the #ffxiv-guides-n-tips channel and if you are looking to discuss the twists and turns of the FFXIV story, we have the #ffxiv-spoilers channel. For those wanting to talk about the overall FFXIV MSQ, please use that channel.

As always, we are always looking forward to you joining us in FFXIV.

STO
New T6 Nebula bundle is coming Sept 24th, a science vessel pack. This will include T6, T5, and T3 ships, updated ship parts in the ship customization.

To Hell with Honor event is ongoing, and gets you a battle pet and a vanity pet. You have until the 29th to complete your daily completions of the TFO.

It is also an upgrade weekend, where you get 100% additional tech points when applying a tech upgrade to all items.

Fleet night is on Sunday at 8:30 PM Eastern. Lately we have been running episodes that were taken out of the seasons. We finished up the Kobali storyline last week. This week we will be running around with newly upgraded ships and testing them out to see how they feel.

GW2
We had a group get together to have fun and show a number of world bosses the might of AIE. The world bosses fell before us. On September 25, we will do a dungeon run with making some world bosses tremble before our might.

LOTRO
October 10 during SNL we will be having a chicken play race. Requirements are to be out of the intro area and there are a couple quests that do need to be run. We will be running people through these quests to get used to chicken play on September 26 and October 3rd. We have a prize for everyone who shows up on October 10th. Already completed most or all the chicken play? Don’t want to play as a chicken? Some may like an escort with them and you will receive a prize as well. It will be a great time running around as a lvl 1 chicken. Don’t miss out.

And with that, let’s talk about what’s going on in WoW.

GAME NEWS
From Gusty:
Brewfest starts Sunday. Nothing new but the usual transmog, mounts, pets, and toys. Plus the Sausage Eating contest! Nom nom nom.

She’ll be asking in Guild chat on Alliance and Horde if people want to group for the contest but is not setting specific dates/times.

All four Covenant shorts have been released, let the hype engine begin! Which one was your favorite?

Pre-patch speculation – Generally they give PvP 2 weeks notice before the end of season, two weeks from Tuesday the 22nd would be October 6th so this is the likely the earliest it could launch. Looking at WoWHead’s Event guide, it’s only two weeks long, so it could even launch October 13th, but that’s really pushing it close.. Neither PTR nor Beta
patching has gone to Release status yet, so it’s unlikely it’ll launch on September 29th.

There is a pre-patch ‘raid’ world boss which Noob raid will be tackling when it’s available.

For the rest of the events, check out the WoWHead guide (spoilers if you don’t want to know who the World Boss is or the events coming up)

https://www.wowhead.com/guides/shadowlands-deaths-rising-prelaunch-event-scourge-invasions

Those on the PTR/Beta will only be required to download a small update, while the entire 9.0.1 patch appears to be approximately 20GB in size.

Like pre-patches for previous expansions, the Shadowlands pre-patch 9.0.1 packs core class updates, Shadowlands’ New Player experience, the limited-time Scourge Invasion, character creation/character customization, and more. WoWHead has a guide, because of course they do, for all the changes coming to 9.0.1 which are literally too long to list here.

https://www.wowhead.com/guides/shadowlands-pre-patch-content-9-0-1

Shadowlands Class Changes
Shadowlands class philosophy emphasizes class fantasy, returning many pruned utility abilities to the spellbook.

Hunter Pets
Hunters have many new pets to tame, with their stables expanded to a whopping 205 slots.
Newcomer Mentor System
The Newcomer Guide system allows veteran players to sign up to help new players. These guides will be assigned special identification icons and access to a channel to answer questions to new players.
Leveling Revamp
Shadowlands pre-patch comes with a massive leveling revamp, featuring not only a level squish but also an item level squish.
Professions Changes
Relics of the Past
Potions
Allied Race Requirement Unlocks
All Allied Races will be easier to unlock in the Shadowlands pre-patch. The requirement to hit Exalted with a related faction has been removed, leaving only the requirement to complete a related series of zone quests.
Character Customization Overhaul
Shadowlands introduces a huge customization revamp, with many new options for each race, a new UI for the character creation screen, and more customization options at the barbershop.
Character Creation Screen
The character creation screen has received a huge facelift. The interface now has a more modern style, and higher quality icons for races, classes, genders and the buttons in general. When creating your character, the customization options are handled in new dropdown menus, including color swatches for skin and hair color.
Each character preview also now showcases fancy animations along with elaborate armor and weapons.
Barbershop
The barbershop has several impactful improvements in the pre-patch:
You can change your gender at the barbershop instead of using a paid service.
Tons of Druid customizations available that weren’t before.
Transmog Improvements
Wands can be transmogged to other main-hand weapons.
Legion Artifact Transmog updates have leveled up the quality of life for those who want more versatility in their options.
Accessibility and Interface Improvements
Gamepad support is coming, allowing players to assign key binds to various console controllers.
Battle Pet Ability Changes
Several impactful Battle Pet abilities will be changed in the pre-patch, leading to new strategies to defeat tamers. These include Hunting Party, Flock and similar abilities, Twilight Meteorite, Jar of Smelly Liquid, Righteous Inspiration, and Ancient Knowledge.
Mounts
Flying Unicorns – All “Horse” mounts (aka Unicorns) can now fly in the Shadowlands pre-patch:

But here is what’s getting removed

Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements
Mad World from Horrific Visions
Awakened Mindborer from Mythic+
Hertz Locker from Mythic Mechagon
Elite PvP sets
Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur moved from vendors to the BMAH

Expansion Launch date – October 26 at 7 pm EDT/4pm PDT (worldwide launch).

This Week at Bungie news
https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49507

WoW
We’re likely about 2-3 weeks away from the Shadowlands Prepatch Event, based on the schedule for animated shorts and the expansion launching on October 26th/27th.

This will be the patch that changes all the talent trees, brings back old spells/abilities that were gone, nerfs buffs, etc. The pre-patch event will be a good time to get all your addons sorted, your characters hotbars sorted, and figure out which class(es) you want to play in the expansion.

There will be a lot of discussion in guild chat (make sure you’re running Greenwall) and in the #WoW AIE DIscord channel so get ready for change!

WoW Classic
Vanilla Sundae Fundays

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

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

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

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

SWTOR
Gambling has finished up for the year and will probably be back next summer. The slots were generous to many by awarding the Rodian Companion, which lots of folks missed getting last year. In spite of Herculean gambling efforts, there might still be one or two guildies that didn’t get the Rodian. Or maybe just one….

Swoop Racing is coming back for a week at the end of the month, which means another chance at rep and rewards. The cosmetic tacticals are particularly fun to get. These are items that your character equips that change something–usually a combat effect, but the ones that make you do a jump off your speeder with flair are fun too. Later this Fall, we will see a brand new event called Feast of Prosperity. We don’t know much about it, yet. More info to come!

BCavanagh had the brilliant idea to add achievements to the lineup of activities to do during MFN. Swtor has tons of achievements that can be accomplished in a raid group out in the world. It was a lot of fun the first time we tried it and we can’t wait for it to come up again.

MEGA last month was a datacron run, including an instanced one that we had not attempted before. People who had done it before helped guide others through the process and some folks came away with new datacrons. Marcus is almost done getting all his datacrons! MEGA next month will be on the 25th. More details to follow!

Maellung is running MM Flashpoints on Friday nights roughly every two weeks, so look for that in about two weeks.

Steam rewards are being issued right now, so log in to the get a pipeworks flair and subscribe sometime between August 28th, 2020 and October 5th, 2020 to get the iconic Shae Vizla as your companion. She is a popular companion and people have been asking for her to become available again and now she is.

FFXIV
We are still in patch 5.3, with a lots of great changes and additions to the game.

For newcomers, the ARR revamp has been reported to chop hours off of the doldrums of the Main Story Questline. Better pacing, XP, and overall a modern questing experience. Also, the demo of the game has been expanded through Heavensward, the first expansion. So, you can jump in and play the game, with few limits, up to level 60. Although as a demo player, you won’t be able to join the Free Company with one of those limits, you can still join groups and get help from AIE by just joining the #ffxiv channel in the AIE discord. We are happy to help you out on your FFXIV journey.

The next update, patch 5.31, is scheduled for this week, Tuesday September 8th. Crafters will be interested in this patch, since it will bring forth the next phase of the Ishgardian Restoration. Join the realm’s other crafters in the rebuilding of Ishgard after the Dragonsong war. Note that this is officially Heavenward content, so if you do complete the MSQ story thru Heavensward, you can participate. This includes people on the free demo. Yes, free players on the demo get content updates too!

Looking forward to that, we have patch 5.35 on the horizon. This one will expand on the Resistance Weapon, upgrading our resistance weapons, similar to the relics in previous expansions that we received in the previous patch. Also, the housing plots will be expanded, so there may be some opportunity to purchase a home of your own at this time.

In FC events, fun nights are still fun, and fun can be had even outside the fun nights. Groups are happening for all levels, at nearly all hours of the day. Plus the #ffxiv channel is moving all throughout the day for news, discussions, questions, answers, and amusing bits. Guides, tips, and other resources can be found in the #ffxiv-guides-n-tips channel and if you are looking to discuss the twists and turns of the FFXIV story, we have the #ffxiv-spoilers channel. For those wanting to talk about the overall FFXIV MSQ, please use that channel.

As always, we are always looking forward to you joining us in FFXIV.

STO

EVE
EVE is quiet but Echoes now has a presence and people should talk to @Dejara to get connected there.

GW2
Friday September 11, Maellung will be hosting a world boss march. It will start at 8 central/ 9 eastern

LOTRO
Last night for SNL we went back into monster play to run in conjunction with the Landroval PVMP 4 extra life event. It was a great turn out for lotro which did cause “some” lag, but was a lot of fun. Coming in about a month is a chicken play race. There will be special prizes given out. We will be using some upcoming SNLs to get characters to the point where you will be able to join in the race. Very low level toons will be able to compete in the event and have a chance to win. Stay tuned to the lotro channel in discord for more details.

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

GAME NEWS
Update 27 came out recently and brought with it some performance improvements, character pathing in player owned houses, and the Stonethorn DLC. Character pathing allows you to set up nodes within your house area to draw a path that the pets, mounts and assistants can follow around the property to make your home feel more alive. The Stonethorn DLC added two new dungeons, Stone Garden and Castle Thron, that carry on the story from Greymoor and lead into the next set of DLC and the final part of the year long Dark Heart of Skyrim adventure. Stone Garden involves putting a stop to a mad alchemist experiment and Castle Thorn takes you into a vampire lair where you get to meet a Vampire Lord. For MFN two weeks ago we grouped up and ran both of these dungeons. Since I’m a hoarder of all the things in games, I totally enjoyed Castle Thorn for with all it’s crates, wardrobes, backpacks, etc to loot and there were some decor items I hope they make available for player owned houses in the future. Stone Garden felt like it had less to loot and the fights felt a bit more challenging in places, but the final boss fight was chaotic fun.

Right now the Imperial City Celebration is going on and it will run until Tuesday, September 15th at 10 am EST. Just like all of the in-game events, there are loot boxes and event tickets to be earned and the event tickets can be used to purchase Indrik Feathers and Berries. This is primarily a PvP focused event, however the event tickets can also be earned buy running the Imperial City 4 person dungeons, White Gold Tower and Imperial City Prison, For MFN last week several of us tackled ICP for tickets and those that either like PvP, or were too low level for the dungeons took a quick adventure into the city to attempt to slay a boss while avoiding players of the other factions. Thank you Sky for leading that PvP group so they could get their tickets. This coming Friday will probably be a repeat where some of us do the dungeons and the rest sneak into the city and hopefully avoid enemy players. Events like this are always more fun in a guild group, so if you are looking to have someone run with you, just let us know in guild chat or discord.

Dual Universe open beta has launched. Although the beta is a bit rocky, as expected from an indy studio pushing it out earlier than it is probably ready for, it's still a compelling experience. There's a group of AIE in there building bases, industry and ships. AIE has a guild organization established with territory and facilities open to all guild members on the main planet of Alioth. If you have any questions be sure to check in with @catavarie or Max down in the #dual-universe channel in Discord.

The New World preview week just wrapped up. New World is looking extremely polished from a game engine perspective. A group of guild members have been in the preview beta for the past week exploring the lands and experiencing some of the latest views of the game before they shut down for an extended dev cycle targeting Spring of 2021 for release. Bhock may still have some of the many hours of streaming of the game ...]]>

On Wednesday, August 26th WOW Classic celebrates its 1st anniversary! To celebrate Nevermore & Coma are planning a special activity next Sunday, August 30th at 2pm Eastern. Keep an eye on the WoW Classic discord channel for more information!

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

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

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

ESO
Update 27 which includes the Stonethorn DLC releases for PC/Mac on August 24th and Sept 1st for consoles.

Stonethorn will have two new four person dungeons that continue the stories told in the Harrowstorm DLC and Greymoor. The new dungeons are Castle Thorn, where you are assaulting a fortress to put a stop to an evil invasion, and Stone Garden, where you confront an evil genius and his experiments. Update 27, which is a base-game patch, will have performance improvements to help with stability and reduce load times and will add Homestead character pathing. Character Pathing will allow you to build paths for your pets, assistants, and mounts to follow when they are placed in your houses so they don’t just have to stand in one spot.

For MFN on Friday, August 28th we will split into groups to run the two new dungeons together.

FFXIV
Patch 5.3 Hit. Which includes the conclusion of the Shadowbringers Storyline, the next chapters of the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse 24 player raid and the The Sorrow of Werlyt storyline, Unreal Trials, Dwarven tribe quests for crafters, the compression of quest “fluff” in the base “A Realm Reborn” to help new players, flying added to the original zones, and more.

The free trial to the game has also been expanded. Now, for no fincial investment, you can play though the game, levels 1 – 60, including ALL content from A Realm Reborn, which is the base or vanilla content, and ALL of the first expansion, Heavesward.

There’s also TWO seasonal events happening right now!

The Moonfire Fair. Save the Eorzean tradition of the Moonfire Fair. Start you adventure in Limsa Lominsa, upper decks. Earn summer beach Hawaiian style cosmetics, dances, and moonfire fair outdoor furnishing. This event will last until August 26th, but takes less than an hour to earn all of the rewards from the event.

The other event is the return of the Yo-kai Watch event, but it has now been expanded for Shadowbringers! Earn 17 new Yo-kai themed minions all across Eorzea. If you earn 13 of them, a yo-kai mount will be yours! But there are also legendary yo-kai medallions to be earned to be traded in for cosmetic weapons! If you earn 13 of these, you will earn another yo-kai mount. If you really work at it and earn all 17 weapons, then you will get the final mount, the Jibanyan Couch mount! This event will take time to complete in its entirety, but you have until patch 5.4 comes out before the Yo-Kai watch event goes on hiatus once again.

I hope you like more seasonal events, because on August 27th, the next seasonal event starts up, The Rising. This event will run until September 14th. This is the game’s ARR relaunching anniversary event, often paying tribute to the game, the main characters, and to the players themselves. This event will start up in Ul’dah in the Steps of Nald.

In Free Company news, patch 5.3 has brought new items that can be discovered via Map nights, so Saturday nights at 9:30pm EST is the place to be for fun, adventure, and profit! Some of these items have the potential to go for more MILLIONS of gil on the player market, so it’s highly profitable to come along, not to mention that map nights are tons of fun in AIE!

Also, there’s plenty of MFNs throughout the week. This is just times we get together to run content, either it be roulettes, legacy raids, or farming for mounts or cosmetic gear. If you are stuck on a dungeon and want to run it with AIE folk, the MFNs are a great event to ask to have those ran.

The Discord channel #ffxiv is where most of the Final Fantasy chatter happens. While we are not going to discourage any sort of in game chatter, of course, but discord has fallen down as the defacto tool for game chatter, both text and in voice. Game discussion can be found there, either if you are in the game or if you are out and about on Earth on your computers, tablets, or mobile devices.

Please note that AIE in FFXIV does employ a MSQ spoiler free policy that extends to the in-game FC chat as well as the main discord channel, #ffxiv. Please refrain from any MSQ spoilers, including in the base content in ARR as new players to the game should be surprised to the many twists and turns that the story shows to the players. If you do wish to discuss plot elements of the game, we do have a new channel set up, #ffxiv-Spoilers to discuss these items. Please keep the MSQ surprises to this channel to keep the surprises a surprise to the folks that have not consumed the surprise yet.

Also new to the FFXIV Discord channels is the #ffxiv-guides-n-tips channel. Here, we will be compiling a list of tips, guides, and other resources for FFXIV. Some of these we found on the web and other FFXIV content creators, but others are created from our own AIE members. We will be pinning (that’s the thumbtack icon in Discord) the guides and tricks in order for you to quickly find the guides you are looking for. Feel free to post stuff in there that you have found helpful or processes that you do to help you in the game.

As always, we are happy to help anyone and everyone get started or returning to their Eorzean adventures. Drop on down to #ffxiv and we’d be happy to get you started today.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FFXIV
See Game Notes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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