NOMADS
Fallout 76 – Launch was fairly smooth, but as this is a Bethesda game, bugs are as plentiful as attacking ghouls. Servers or ‘worlds’ would occasionally have issues and crash, but there was always a new one waiting to move on to. PvP is a non-issue if you wish to avoid it, almost similar to warmode in WoW where if you don’t retaliate or are set in pacifist mode, it is not worth an attacker’s time to try to kill you. And if they are persistent, you can easily switch worlds and never see them again. If someone manages to kill a pacifist player, they become a wanted target for the entire server/world, showing up on the map at all times, and the bounty being paid from their own caps.
We have several AIE members running amok in the game, and you can chat and find out more in the nomad channel in the AIE discord.

Destiny 2 – The free copy of Year One is no longer available, but the refer-a-friend is still ongoing. If you did pick up a free copy of Year One, and are thinking of purchasing the Year Two Forsaken expansion, see about having a guildie invite you so that you can both get some fun bonus goodies for the effort. This includes an experience bonus for both of you if you are below the level cap for Forsaken, which is level 50. It also opens open a number of exclusive quests to complete together to get an exotic sniper rifle, an exclusive ship, and a friendship emblem. Those that refer multiple friends will be able to earn an exclusive sparrow. If you recently bought Forsaken, and it was less than 7 days ago, you can still be ‘referred’ by another player to activate the bonuses.

WoW
Just a reminder, Noob Raid will be on holiday break beginning December 15 and resuming on January 5th.

So, AIE in WOW in Review!

1. 112 gnomes were killed during COOP this year, however we still have time to add to those numbers with our annual Winterveil COOP coming up in December.
2. 4,235 battle potions were used on heroic Argus, along with 10,678 warlock cookies. (Don’t ask what’s in the cookies.)
3. An average of 7.7 players ask when noob raid invites go out between 9 and 11pm every Saturday night.
4. 141 left sharks were mailed to Syreyne, bringing the current total to 426. Obviously she needs more.
5. 682 pots of coffee were brewed in the guild kitchen. The Irish cream was optional.
6. Ralff’s Amazing Race was so amazing that the amazing officers want to do this amazing event every year. Isn’t that amazing!?
7. Summer of Love was great! Except for the Forsaken Laser Tag. All the Forsaken competitors were disqualified, since the laser beams went right through them.

What Arrives with Patch 8.1 (starting 12/11, but susceptible to time gating)

Continuation of the War Campaign
Heritage Armor for Blood Elves and Dwarves
Paragon Reputation Rewards
Saurfang and Tyrande Questlines
New Island Expeditions and Vendor
Incursions
Account-wide Reputation Credit and Transmogs
Account-wide Flight Paths

SWTOR
SWTOR Year End Wrap up for the AIE podcast

2018 started off with the last of 2017’s Snowballs on Nar Shaddaa, followed closely by Zen reminding people that they can get mats from the Guild Cargo Hold to do their Conquest crafting.

2018 also saw 3 new operations bosses in various difficulty modes:
• Scyva, Mother of Sorrows
• Nahut, the Hated Son
• Izax, the Destoyer of pretty much everything and everyone

The Guild came together to get all the operations teams a chance to down Izax.

We got a new Flashpoint, a new pvp map, a Conquest revamp, and the Rishi Stronghold.

We got a new podcast – Working Class Nerds – hosted by Marcus and Nick.

We had a great year for guild growth and as a result we moved our MFN and Conquest schedule from 2 week Imp/1 week Pub to 1 and 1.

We got 4 new officers – Dent, Marcus, Zen and BC!
• Marcus ran his first MEGA in June and it has already become a monthly tradition. (Monthly Epic Guild Activity)
• Marcus also instigated an operations night with all the current SWTOR podcasters that was streamed by multiple content creators. It was called SWTOR Unite.
• BC created and published and maintained his Conquest Calculator which helps guildies (and the rest of the SWTOR community) plan out their Conquest activities.
• Dent started Flashpoint Fridays, which is a casual pop up event for running small group content.
• Zen continues to keep the mats the flowing and shepherd us to Conquest success week in/week out.

We had fun times on the public test servers maxing out our characters and their gear, and killing bosses.

We conquered Balmorra!

Astromech EPC-268 is floating out in space broadcasting the 268th edition of the SWTOR Escape Podcast with Max and Sema.

But 2018 is not over yet! We will finish the year with update 5.10 which will include new story, a new daily area, a new guild progression system, private PVP and GSF instances for guilds, a new armor tier, and more

STO
Big things have happened this year for the fleet. Fleet leadership switched over from Captain Hunter to Captain Grebog.

The fleet made some big strides this year on the fleet holdings. The starbase was upgraded to Tier 4 and the Starbase Military also upgraded to tier 4. This has unlocked a large number of fleet ships.

The fleet Research lab was fully completed unlocking more trait slots, an R&D project slots on top of some gear.

The fleet spire is over halfway done in upgrading fully. Which will unlock some more awesome gear for the fleet.

As for STO, we received the Victory is Life expansion. Bringing back the Dominion and allowing us to create Jem’hadar captains and of course more story.

And of course the latest story is based on the Discovery TV series in the Age of Discovery. Ships updated in Tier 6 variants from the show and some really interesting episodes were added.

Also, as Grebog’s schedule has changed around again, I will be looking to find a time for people that will allow a fun night for the fleet to come together, chat, blow up some enemy ships and have some fun. So, Set Phasers to Fun, should be coming back soon.

FFXIV
Shadowbreakers has been announced as your next expansion for FFXIV!
We’re likely going to the Garlean Empire (not confirmed, but looking really likely)!

Warrior of Light might be becoming the Warrior of Darkness. But isn’t there already a Warrior of Darkness?

As seen in the video of the fan fest, we will have this in our hands, barring any delays, summer of 2019.
New Level Cap, of course.
Multiple new classes are likely.
Why was Thancred in the trailer sporting a gunblade? Right now, the closest class we have is a Mechanist, and they just use standard handguns, shotguns, and other ballistic weapons. Would this be a clue to one of the new classes?

New end game for crafters and gatherers! The rebuild of Ishgard has begun. Hinted at the idea of housing in Ishgard may be available. Farming may also be possible, but not as one of the new classes.

New Game+
Trusts. Similar but not a copy of the FFXI system.
Summon popular NPCs to help you in your adventuring, with their own class or role.
They do not level up on their own, they are based on your current level.
World Visiting. Visit other servers inside your datacenter.
World reshuffling. Adding more servers and regrouping of the servers.

End of 32-bit windows version of the game, 64-bit only at that point.
New race! The tease is a Bugs Bunny shirt. We are speculating that it is the Viera from FF Tactics, but will be introduced in patch 4.5)

Blue Mage, as announced by the CEO of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, sporting a blue mask, a blue cape, and a staff with a blue gemstone at the top.
Learns abilities from monsters to use during combat.
How many actions? Was teased at “a lot”. Will be able to equip 24 at once.
Not connected to other classes, much like machinist, red mage, DK.
Limited class, meaning not for end game. Limited to level 50 at release and will have its cap raised in patches over time.
Will be available in patch 4.5, January 2019. Part 2 of patch 4.5, wrapping up the Stormblood storyline will be in late March.

Word Visiting details:
New Data Centers being added, some servers being shuffled around.

Goblin, AIE’s Home World, will be relocated to the new Crystal Data Center. Free Transfers will be available for characters affected by this move. No plans for AIE to move at this time.

Shadowbringers Trailer.

Blue Mage Reveal

ESO
This year, we saw a resurgence of interest in the game, as the improvements both in quality of life and game content attracted players back. Kini was named director, and has been leading and encouraging a number of well attended Mandatory Fun Nights ever since.
There has been a number of DLCs launched as well, including the Summerset Isles expansion, some werewolf fun, and even well needed attention for the Argonians in Murkmire.

Upcoming events – there are two in-game events still scheduled for this year. The Undented Celebration Event (11/29 – 12/05) which will reward Event Tickets once per day when your group kills the final boss of a dungeon. The New Life Festival (12/13 – 01/02) will award one Event Ticket the first time you complete a festival quest each day. These Event Tickets are used to buy the four Indrik Feathers needed for the new Indrik mount.

EVE
What a bunch of lousy Murder Hobos™

EvE is going through another donut domination phase and the crises (plural) that always follow. So prepare your buckets to harvest rivers of tears.
Good for the game, even with Pearl Abyss buying CCP and investing in other CCP games and pet projects.

Will see how EvE evolves or morphs to survive a few more years

POS(Player Owned Structures) are finally retired now, after almost 11 years.
New Cyno and JB(Jump Bridges) were deployed

GW2
It is always hard to tell because arenanet generally plays these sort of things close to their vest but it looks like Guild wars 2 had a really good year this year. The failure of Bless Online and some streamers deciding GW2 was a decent alternative really raised the profile. There are still black friday sales and giveaways in the hematite.

In game, the annual Winters Day holiday is coming up soon, in line with Arenanet new policy of not making events and achievements one-offs. If you are short on karma, the Winters Day orphans karma event should be able to help.

In the guild, we have reached level 23 and stalled out a bit. Hopefully we can regain progress in the new year and keep expanding the Guild hall. Monday Fun Nights are still generally scheduled, but we’ll skip around Christmas and New Year’s.

LOTRO
The Legendary Server opening is something the AIE team is jumping on. It’s the WoW Classic of LotRO. We have a guild there and a handful of people kicking off new old-school characters.

The guild name is Alea Iacta Est as DM +Adahrel+ granted us a rename from A I E.

GAME NEWS

From time to time AIE evaluates the roles and jobs of the officer group that oversees all our game divisions and does the back end work. In doing that recently we identified the need for a bit more help in a couple areas. In particular, SWTOR 5.10 is going to take what we’ve been doing in that division with the guild “conquest” system and crank it up to 11 (and then to level 65+). Guild leveling, conquest changes and guild perks are going to require additional focus and officer roles. As a result, two new officers have been added! They will continue to be primarily SWTOR focused but we will be calling on them for help and guidance across the community as needed as well.

BCavanagh – Bcav or BC has taken on the role of Conquest strategizer for the guild for many months with his contributions in this area extending out into the greater SWTOR gaming community as well.

Zen – Zen has been with us for a few years now and true to his chosen gamer tag, he’s cool and level headed without fail. He is one of the top “helpers” in the guild, always ready to assist with any ask and goes out of his way constantly to make himself available. Also in the conquest management role, Zen has become a tactical execution lead.

And if you find yourself enjoying the game, there is currently a refer a friend event where existing players of the Year 2 Forsaken expac can invite those with the free copy, or even those that haven’t bought Forsaken yet, to play with them and earn all sorts of fun rewards. These include an exotic sniper rifle, a ship, and even an exotic sparrow for those that refer multiple friends.
Fallout 76 – There may also be a few guildies diving into Fallout 76 starting on November 14th. The B.E.T.A. seemed to go well enough, and I am at least is looking forward to exploring the radiated wilds of West Virginia.

WoW
Noob Raid news – We decided to be brave and left behind the safety of LFR to venture into Uldir normal last night We managed 3/8 bosses before Vectis ended our rampage. A ton of fun was had and we are looking forward to trying again next week.

Kardinal, tell us your first hand experience with the chaos that is NOOB raid! (Can throw to Kardinal if you want; I was there. 🙂 I can make a story of it. )
Noob raid’s been very popular, full/almost full every week.
Been doing LFR, been successful, but in spirit of learning, wanted to deepen people’s knowledge
1shot Taloc, adjusted and 2shot Mother, laughed through trash, 1shot Fetid, and….we learned a lot on Vectis. Got the mechanics, need the practice.
Failure is good. Teaches us that it’s okay and fun to fail.
“Progression is wiping”
Most importantly, we laughed and had fun and there was no tension.

December community events: COOP for Winter Veil, no date yet;

Time After Timewalking event on Friday Dec 7th at 9pm Eastern/Server. LK Ulduar Timewalking raid. Details will be posted soon to the blog.

November Officer Play Date: Nov 30th at 10:30 pm Eastern we are having an Overwatch night. Everyone is invited. Come get to know your fellow officers outside of WoW. Let’s see how many custom games and groups we can get going.

Raid Bank Pilot Program: This program is doing really well, and we are getting a lot of positive feedback. If you are interested in applying for a raid team guild bank tab, please email us.

(Kardinal’s in BLTN, can talk about our experience and why we love it. Much more convenient. Don’t have to know who to send to. Don’t need to know what’s needed. Just throw whatever we think is useful in the guild bank. Anyone who needs, takes. Just need to trust your teammates, which we all do. Because we’re AIE.)

If you are the leader of a raid team that might be interested in this program once it is approved, or have questions or feedback about such a program, please email us with details such as:

Raid Team name
Raid Leader(s) name
Preferred AIE co-guild

ESO
There is a free trial of the ESO plus service that starts Thursday 11/15 and runs until Wednesday 11/21. The trail will allow free access to all of the DLC packs, the craft bag, costume dyes, and a 10% increase in experience and gold earnings. It’s a great way to check out some of the benefits of a paid subscription.
Also on 11/15 the Clockwork City Celebration event begins and runs until 11/21. During this timeframe double mats will be harvested from crafting nodes, there will be double reward boxes for completing daily quests, and the drops from all boss fights will be double as well. During this event you can earn two event tickets from the 1st daily quest to help you purchase the Indrik Feathers needed for the new Indrik Mount.
Mandatory Fun on Friday 11/16 at 9pm est will focus on the Clockwork City zone due to the celebration event.

STO
If you haven’t created an Age of Discovery Captain, It is highly recommended You start out in the timeline of the Discovery show. The story they put in for it is pretty good. There is even a references to some other cadets with names you should recognize.

Also Black Friday sales. They always have some great deals on in the c store, from bonus zen if you purchase it, to discounted ships, special packs, lots of stuff.
Currently the Phoenix prize packs are back, but you only have until tomorrow 10am PST to claim a free one or buy them with dilithium.

There is a 20% of sale on all lobi store items until tomorrow 10am PST as well.
Also until December 6th, the lifetime subscription is $100 off, so currently only $199. If you have been debating it, or waiting on a sale, now is your time.
Tis the season for sales.

SWTOR
1) 5.10 dropping on Dec 11. It’s a big update with lots of guild stuff in it. We are really looking forward to it.
2) November MEGA coming on Nov 30th. We promise no one will die. Honest!
3) December MEGA is also a go. Beware – there might be snowballs involved. More details as we get closer.

Last night. We had SWTOR Unite. Which was….. All of the SWTOR podcasters united for a night and we took on the Gods from the Machine operation. AIE was well represented by Max, Sema, Marcus, and a last minute fill in was Corley. We went for about 4 hours and had a blast. In the end. Izax was still standing. But what a great night.

FFXIV
Though is is more news for FF15 than FF14, on December 12, those that own a copy of FF15 will be able to participate in a fun side quest, as FF14 invades Eos. The Miqo’te adventurer, which is curiously in starter gear, has come to chase down the primal Garuda. Hopefully, Noctis will return the favor and visit us in Eorzea.

EVE
#Making EVE Great Again

Nothing much, except more betrayals within alliances (so you end up with fights that are free for all, or where your ally helps your enemy). Even with CCP being bought out, the players are the most important resource in EvE, and Tears Do Flow Them Rivers!

Also WAR! WAR! WAR!

Onslaught Winter update is coming Nov. 13th

We just maybe, maybe making a new home for ourselves by stomping on some poor unsuspecting alliance’s neck. Oopsies!

What does that mean for AIEU? Why our specialty of course! Moving

LOTRO
The Legendary Server opening is something the AIE team is jumping on. You can describe it as WoW Classic of LotRO. We have a guild there and a handful of people kicking off new old-school characters.
https://www.lotro.com/en/legendary

Only VIPs / VIP Lifer can access them, and we’re effectively starting over all at once. I suspect Helegrod, the first raid back in the day, will be the ultimate goal after hitting level 40.
Currently “A I E” is on Anor, but we could move to Ithil if warranted due to login queues. SSG is offering free transfers.

GAME NEWS
Mew, Tet, Lanctharus, and Kardinal – tell us about your Blizzcon experience and your takeaways!

The themes of our talk:

1) the ability to talk to nearly anyone and know you have common interests.

2) the availability and eagerness of developers to talk to anyone and everyone who approached them.

Tetsemi – Overall thoughts are positive, lots of announcements, both expected and unexpected. Loved listening to the Before The Con panels, as well as all the panels at Blizzcon. The WoW panels (especially the Q&A) and the Warcraft III Reforged panels were amazing. The Costume/Talent contest was very well done, definitely bring back Darren DePaul for that, and the Warcraft Horde vs. Alliance voice actor panel was worth it with Laura Bailey singing Daughter of the Sea live.

Content thoughts –
WoW had much more information than I thought and I’m already scrambling to level up characters and finish achievements so I can keep up when it’s release.
Warcraft III Reforged was an instant buy for me as I can’t wait to play it again properly on new graphics.
Hearthstone – I like that they’re doing a troll expansion tieing into the current WoW expansions, it looks fun, I’ll probably dabble in it.
Heroes of the Storm – I love the story behind the new character they introduced and hopefully the lore behind the Nexus will be interesting. I find it interesting that they’re trying to flesh out the story behind it.
Overwatch – I’d pay money for the character of Ashe, but thankfully all the characters are included in the game. Loved the cinematic, and I really like that they stretched their programming and story wings a bit and made B.O.B. (Do something!) her ultimate. Can’t wait for more story on the Deadlock gang.
Diablo – Just the announcement peaked my interest in DIII again and I’m playing a seasonal Necromancer. All I’m going to say, with apologies, is that was the wrong venue to announce a Mobile game and the decision to make that the final announcement with the first Q&A panel afterword just didn’t work for me. I feel sorry for the CM team and dev team dealing with the fallout from the announcement. I’m really excited to try the game out and see how it plays and I love that they’re exploring the time between D2 and D3 in the game. More lore is always good.

Mewkow
Halloween with Mickey
Con before the storm/World of Podcasts – Great podcast panels. Lots of elbow rubbing afterwards. Good talks with CTR folks.
Blizzcon – Security lines were unexpected. Locked down food trucks. Lindsey concert was great except for the jerks.
Sheraton meetup with Grimm, Mezotea, Senior Geek.
Dizcon –

Lanctharus

Kardinal experience with Blizzcon
Lanc’s Plain Jane experience getting to Anaheim

Kardinal
I had an amazing time meeting everyone from Devs to AIE to new people. Enjoyed the planned content, but even without it, it’s a wonderful and unique experience.
Highlight of sessions: “When is the Horde going to get its real warchief back???”
Themes:
Developers are everywhere, available, and eager to talk to you.
Randomly – QA Mgr for Hearthstone. Tech people after the “Inside Blizzard” panel. Tech people love to talk because fewer people tend to appraoch them. New Executive Producer (head) of warcraft, John Haight. Global director of CS. Wyatt Cheng spent 3 hours in the Marriott Lobby.
Scheduled- Reached out to two Blizz devs via Twitter and made times to talk to them. Doing that gave us time to get really in depth. 2 hours each.
You can talk to anyone there and know that they’re interested in the same things you are. Impromptu fun conversations include:
Ex1 – Austrians
Ex2 – Cosplayer
Ex3 – Group of alliance players at Con before the Storm
Also: Surprisingly easy to get tickets at the last minute.

“The other day, John Staats released his WoW diary. The one he wrote when he was working on Vanilla. I was reading it last night. This is very relevant to the whole conversation, I think:

“In the spirit of education, the first thing I would like to impress upon you is one of the most surprising lessons I learned: Public speculation is always wrong. Always. Blizzard operated under a blanket of scrutiny, and only after I was in the meetings could I appreciate how inaccurate public analysis was. Unless you’re in the room, you have no idea what’s going on. Unless someone knows firsthand the reasons why a company makes decisions, popular conjecture is completely off. For a company as secretive as Blizzard, the tinfoil-hat theorizing about why we did anything was severe, cynical, and reactionary. It struck me how people universally assumed corporate decisions were thoughtless or callous—like if a feature was dropped, it was done so without regard for the feelings of the fan base. When decisions were made for financial grounds, people assumed it was because developers lacked imagination. Whenever technical or gameplay decisions were made, it was assumed the company was penny-pinching. I’m not even referring to the trolls dredging the game forums for flame wars; I’m talking about the intelligent, well-substantiated, and reasonable arguments about why Blizzard did this or why Blizzard did that. But…all of it was wrong and certainly not because the fan base was stupid. People were wrong because they considered only variables that were public knowledge—which were only a fraction of the pertinent factors.”

Destiny 2 - Festival of the Lost is underway. Enjoy Destiny’s take on the season by donning masks, and going on a bit of a spooky hunt with Amanda Holliday leading the way as you explore the Haunted Forest. The Tower is decorated in honor of those lost, and the Eververse loot season has been flavored to match. The Clan is currently at level 3 after our current efforts, but still has a few levels to go if we want to get maxed out at level 6. Hawthorne is who you want to talk to if you wish to contribute to the clan leveling, and definitely if you are planning on running content with fellow clan members.

This event will also offer a chance to acquire Event Tickets to redeem for an Indrik Feather. Once you’ve collected all four of the unique Indrik Feathers over the course of the rest of the year, you’ll be able to get the new Indrik mount.(edited)
During MFN this coming Friday, we will take advantage of the Festival and use the cauldron to turn ourselves in to undead and roam Tamriel killing bosses, running delves, clearing dungeons, and basically just wreaking havoc on the Dremora to collect as many of the event items as we can.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We will have Sy on next show to talk about it, but the event is scheduled for October 21st at 2pm Eastern time!
https://aie-guild.org/blog/2018/09/running-of-the-beef-zandalar-forever/
Reminder to use AIE LFO Community to look for officers in game.

Reminder to use raid recruitment channel in discord to find raid teams, now that more people are gearing up 120.

ESO
MFN is still on Friday’s at 9pm Eastern.

The Summerset event to unlock a pet, mount, and house has ended. AIE did it’s part to get the achievement completed. The ESO community hit the goal and we should be receiving an awesome house around October 10th. And they will have plenty of items created for it for people to spend their money on.

On October 8th they will be releasing 4 Summerset/High Elves style furniture packs in the Crown Store for purchase if people want to buy them to start furnishing the Grand Psijic Villa we unlocked. The sets available will be for a parlor, kitchen/dining room, bedroom, and bathroom.

STO
33% of Lifetime sub sale going on now until 10/1 10 am PT (yes tomorrow)

20% off services sale going on now until also 10/1 10 am PT

It is also Bonus XP weekend. Great time to level mains or alts.

Phoenix Prize pack also going on right now, but this goes until 10/5 10am PT. Get a free phoenix prize pack at Drozana Station each day. And you can buy more from the dilithium store. A great way to stock up on gear upgrade tokens that cost no dilithium on use. And technically the cost of the boxes from the dilithium store for the boxes converted over to these upgrade tokens ends up saving you dilithium compared to regular upgrade tokens that use dilithium in the upgrade process. (Yes, Grebog put it into a spreadsheet to check.)

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

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

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

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

Next week will be the Imperial side for conquest.

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

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

Keep an eye on the #swtor channel in AIE DIscord for details regarding the next MEGA event which is happening towards the end of October.

And with that, let’s chat about what we have been doing in and out of game!

GAME NEWS
Mewkow- Moving, lots and lots of unpacking and Destiny 2/WoW when I can

Mkallah- Big fight thursday game, Ravenloft planning…… D&D Friday- learn about the battle between Artraxis and Alistar Bronzebeard- learn about the Shadowfel, find shadow dragon scale that had we taken would have put us in large amounts of danger had we made it into a shield
Mage- no game last session, but tell story about Mills playing the Prince

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

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

Dear Blizzard, please add in a Ferry Master whistle!

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

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

For Azeroth!

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

Upcoming streams
After the AIE podcast, ESO will be streaming!
Kini and Sparrow- can you guys fill us in on the details? Sure. We are going to visit one of the two new dungeons released in the recent Wolfhunter DLC. The DLC itself revamped the Werewolf skill line and two challenging dungeons.

WoW
Just a reminder, we are now using the AIE LFO Community for invites, please see https://aie-guild.info/wowlfo for information on how to join the community and request an invite to the guild after receiving your approved Umami application for each character.

Do you have a style, would you like to show it off? Gustytail and Syreyne are hosting a Show off Your Mog for Trial of Style. They will be organizing guild members into groups of 6 to run the Trial of Style. This is a great time to earn your 1st Place shirt for winning, along with currency to buy the transmog sets from the vendor.

Mandatory Fun Night this week will be on the Republic Side, make sure you join Tuesdays at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific to enjoy the fun! Conquest will be The Trade Emporium. Ops is Toborro’s Courtyard.

The stong hold is fully unlocked for our guild and has both a large arena that outfitted for custom huttball or team deathmatch, and a smaller arena for small group or duels.
There’s also a beach for chill guild parties!

The MEGA event on Friday was fun and well attended. We got a pretty big group in our new guild stronghold and played around with the two custom arenas and it was called Revenge of the Huts. Fun was had by all and everyone killed Max.

The next Mega event will be on September 20th with details to come. It will be announced on Working Class Nerds next episode or the next Escape Pod Cast.

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

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

The crystalline catastrophe event is going on for special rewards.

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

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

EVE
All is hunky dory. PvP activity is still at an all time high as we continue our holy war against TEST Alliance and their lowly mythical unicorn Russian renters alliance.

FFXIV
Starting today, August 26th, and ending September 17th; The Rising event returns. Celebrate FF14’s fifth anniversary as the Mythril Eye returns to search for the most fascinating of stories. Rewards for this event include a wind-up Cirina, one of the Au Ra from the Azim Steppe region, and fashionable earrings.

GW2
Guild Wars 2’s sixth anniversary is coming soon (Aug. 28). Anet never talks much about it’s plans but it is expected to have the traditional sales in the gemstore.

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

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

MFN happens every Friday around 9pm Eastern.

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

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

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

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

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

And of course MFN is Friday Nights at 9 Eastern.

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

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

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

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

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

GAME NEWS
Legion Wrap Up
What did we enjoy?

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

Mewkow:

What did we dislike?

Mewkow:

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

What personal goals did we meet?

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

Mewkow:

What personal goals did we miss?

Mewkow: class mounts

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

What are we not going to miss from Legion?

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

Mewkow:

What are we going to miss from Legion?

Mewkow:

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

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

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

Mewkow:

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

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

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

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

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

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