SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 387: LOTSofSWTOR
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-387-lotsofswtor/

Hot takes on the 10th anniversary announcements. LOTS of good stuff on the roadmap.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 388: High Republic Wave 2
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-388-high-republic-wave-2/

This week we execute order 420 and talk about the launch of The High Republic, Wave 2 of Phase 1. We’ll be reading The Rising Storm for the month of July.

Board and Swords – https://boardsandswords.com/blog?category=Boards%20%26%20Swords

Chris played Warhammer 40K, Pikachu V is alive – Boards & Swords #176

Lordy lordy, Chris played 40….K that is. Warhammer 40k specifically. Plus, People are shelling out for TCGs still, Asmodee is bringing the hammer to counterfeits, and speaking of Warhammer – there’s going to be a subscription for Warhammer stuff?

NOMADS
Destiny 2 has come alive again. We now have a raid team that will be running Monday Nights. We also run fun missions on Sunday nights. Solstice of Heros started this week as well. Its the summer event and it will run unitl Aug 26th. Thats when the next Season starts. We hope we will get the “Witch Queen” reveal that day as well. Lots of fun happening over here in Destiny 2! Time to suit up Guardian.

New World Open Beta begins July 20th. Keep an eye out for discussion in the Nomad section of discord as the game opens up for all to experience.

Diablo 3 season 23 ends on July 18th and season 24 begins on July 24th

WoW
Noob Raid resumes on July 17th. I suspect as Wing 1 of LFR is launching this Tuesday, that there may be some shenanigan’s in the new LFR. If that’s the case, the minimum iLevel will be 195.

SWTOR
See Game Notes

ESO
We had a short break from being lead off cliffs while our fearless leader was on vacation.
However, things that still occurred, clearing zones of Skyshards and Worldbosses, clearing Public dungeons, being lead off cliffs by not-Dankinia

MFN resumes on July 16th and activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. See above for the general idea.

FFXIV
FFXIV just had their most recent Live Letter from the Producer, where they showcased a bunch of Endwalker previews. One nugget is the Official Benchmark tool, to let you test out your PC for Endwalker as well as the character creator, so you can create the perfect catboi for your Endwalker needs. If you do download it and make some new characters, go ahead and post some pics to the #pics-or-it-didnt-happen channel. We’d love to see what you can come up with. No sub needed for the Benchmark.

If your sub has lapsed, there is a call back campaign going on. 14 free days from when you first log in during the campaign, which runs from July 9 to August 23. We’d love to see a lot of old faces drop on by and meet the new ones.

Another FFXIV reminder, that any member in the Free Company has the rights to invite new players to the FC. So, if you area a member and have a friend, family member, or just meet a cool person in game, you are welcome to toss them an invite!

A quick reminder that the often asked for Regalia Mount (the 4-seat car) will be acquirable again in September as a re-run of the Final Fantasy 15 event.

Finally, FFXIV has that super generous free trial with no time restrictions. While the trial does not let you join a FC, we on the Discord server are happy to answer questions or help out newcomers to the game. If you do end up liking the game and buying into it, the great folks in AIE will be happy to help you make the jump.

To all current, past, and future Warriors of Light, thank you for spending your gaming time with us!

STO
Federation Fleet has completed the K-13 holding. So, be sure to go there and pick up new cosmetics from the tailor there and superior traits from the biologist.

The Colony holding is moving right along and closing in on Tier IV unlocks. While the Fleet Starbase is also moving along nicely as well.

KDF Fleet: Is working towards Tier 2 of the Dlithium Mine holding for those sweet discounts.

Fleet Action Report will be celebrating its 53rd episode and 1 year anniversary with blowing up Grebog over and over again in a PVP fun match. Come watch us kill Grebog again and again 9 PM Eastern on Monday.

GW2
Dungeons and more night is this Friday from 9-11 eastern.

Legendary Armory comes July 13th along with the twisted marionette from living world season 1.

The legendary Armory is a place where you can share your legendary items with all of your characters. Don’t have any legendaries? If you keep doing the bonus achievements associated with the living world return, then you will be awarded with a precursor for an End of Dragons (next xpac) legendary weapon and if you complete all of the bonus achievements you will get a legendary amulet.

The Twisted Marionette is from Living world season 1, which only ran once and has never been been revisited until now. (all of season 1 content was not instanced.) This event runs from the 13th to the 20th, and is accessed through an NPC in the eye of the north.

Finally, we are at Season 3, Episode 2 in the return to the living world event. Episode 3 and its bonus achievements unlock on Tuesday. As a reminder, each week the episode is available to be unlocked for free, (check your in game mail for a message from ArenaNet). If you have been keeping up with the Bonus achievements when season 3 finishes up, we will get the item that will let us unlock the end of dragons precursor weapon.

The reward for finishing season 2, 3, and 4 will be the 32 slot bag. and as stated before after finishing everything plus Icebrood Saga will be the legendary amulet.

In ultra bonus news: End of Dragons has been officially delayed until 2022. In the meantime we will be getting a world vs world makeover in the form of alliances. (more on this later). End of Dragons will also bring a directx 11 client. Which should hopefully help with many of the performance issues the game suffers from on dx9.

LOTRO
New legendary servers have opened, Shadowfax and Treebeard. Shadowfax is +50% normal xp and will open the next area about every 2 months. Treebeard is -60% normal xp and will open next area every 5-6 months. AIE has a kinship on Treebeard. You do need to be vip to play on the legendary servers. If you want an invite on Treebeard let us know in the lotro channel.

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

Fleet Action Report ep 47 Klingon House United
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDgaGq0yi_Q

Star Trek Online starts a new season, Klingon House United, and Fleet Action Report is here to bring the new information. Nikodas and Grebog are back covering all the various information that is dropped in the new season from new TFOs, missions, and patrols and how they are all part of the new event.

Fleet Action Report ep 48 plasma besides in your giant displays
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REObrLPmgxk

Nikodas and Grebog are back with another episode of Fleet Action Report, talking about Star Trek Online. We go into the current events in game and all the details about what you should look for in a plasma build. Next week we will be covering some TFOs.

NOMADS
The AIE board gaming group is meeting the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month. So the next gaming session will be this Thursday, July 1st. They currently plan to play Tzolk’in, a Mayan-themed worker placement game with a unique gear mechanism which dynamically determines what workers can do.

“… People are still in and out…” does pretty much cover the activity specific to AIE participation in Diablo 3 and Destiny 2 every week at this point. However, if you want something that may put the notion of trying these games again into people’s heads, here’s a bullet point for each…

Division 2
Season 6 is live, a callback to the old Season 3 content if you haven’t completed it.
https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/the-division/the-division-2/news-updates/27d98ROzZw7eGMaVjKELCq/season-6-concealed-agenda-is-back

Diablo III
Season 24 is around the corner and testing on the PTR will go live in about a week. It’ll introduce a new weapon type called Ethereals. Details at https://us.diablo3.com/en-us/blog/23679609/diablo-iii-ptr-271-%7C-preview-blog-6-10-2021

Diablo II Remastered, Reloaded, no Resurrected will launch, with cross-play on September 23rd, 2021. Early access to the open beta sign-ups are at https://diablo2.blizzard.com/en-us/

WoW
Noob Raid News – There will be no Noob Raid on July 3rd and July 10th.

Chains of Domination, Patch 9.1 will be coming out June 29th. Too many changes/updates to list, but a couple of things to highlight. There will be a new land area to explore, flying available in the 2nd or 3rd week of the patch just for doing your covenant story line, a new raid, a new megadungeon, and a revamped Torghast as well as you’ll be able to ride your mounts in the Maw.

Tets and Mew, I know the two of you are a bit burned out with WOW right now. Is there anything that is tweaking your interests in this new patch?

WoW Classic
We’ve moved to Mankrik, Horde Side for the Burning Crusade Classic, feel free to check the AIELFO channel in game (/join aielfo) and/or use #LFO or #wow-classic on AIE’s Discord server.

SWTOR
It was TOTAL GALACTIC WAR. The guild won another planet. All the guild events last week were co-opted for this effort and all guildies in their individual and group play contributed to points to help us win. This opportunity only comes around a few times a year. Winning a planet means that for a period of time, everyone who arrives on that planet will see the words, “CZ-198 Controlled by Alea Iacta Est Timor”.

In game news, we are shocked, shocked to see gambling going on in here. The Nar Shaddaa Night Life event is just around the corner. Come to the casino with a few credits in your pocket and unfounded hope in your heart. It only takes a little luck to win the top prizes. Or maybe a lot of luck. Or infinite luck. You have from June 29 to August 10th. Plenty of time to procrastinate….

Also, Double XP is coming back starting on June 29 and going until July 13th.

FFXIV
The AIE Membership in FFXIV has shown a steady increase in numbers and a very high member retention rate in the past few weeks, leading up to even before the Fan Fest. Many thanks to all of the FFXIV old timers and new folks coming on board to enjoy the adventures in Eozrea with AIE. We are successful because of you folks. So, big shout out to all of you.

Patch 5.55 is still the current content patch. This includes the last step of the resistance weapon quest line, which is the best in slot for every job with no need to jump into savage raiding.

Endwalker, the next expansion to FFXIV will be coming out on November 23 (or the 19th for the pre-orders), but there’s a bunch of in-game events happening until then.

Sometime in June (that’s the month we are currently in), we will get the Make It Rain event, which is a Gold Saucer event. Rack up those MGPs to get all of those awesome cosmetics, mounts, minions, and hairstyles!

Sometime in the June/July time frame, we will get a balance patch 5.56, and then another balance patch 5.57 in July/August time frame. This will prep the game up for Endwalker release. We will get more info on this soon!

The Moonfaire and the Rising will be coming in August. This event is normally a celebration of the players and the rebirth of the game many years ago. This event usually falls at or very close to AIE’s own Remembrance Week, so look forward to future announcements on that.

If that’s not enough content for you, AIE is running content on a regular basis.

FF14 AIE Content Progression

Join us down in the #ffxiv channel for more details on the game. Remember, if you are on the fence on this game, the entirety of the base game and the first expansion Heavensward (level 60) is available at no cost. You can check this out on PC, Mac, Steam (for PC), Playstation 4, and the recently released native Playstation 5 version. Regardless of your platform, all players share the same servers, and there’s no limitations on what content or control scheme a platform can use. We love welcoming new players to AIE in Eorzea and we can’t wait to welcome you as well.

ESO
Standard activities include: Clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses, Clearing Public dungeons, and best of all, being lead off cliffs by Dankinia!

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week we’ll be making our way through the two public dungeons in the new Blackwood zone.

STO
The end of the Klingon Civil War comes in the House United Season.

Only Qo’nos Endures Event: Earn a 4-piece ground set by playing new missions, new TFOs, or new patrols all centered around the new season.

New Bridge for KDF Captains: Based one a new in-game mission.

Fleet Action Report is looking for people to help with a PVP episode in 2 weeks. If you’re interested in helping, you can find contact information at https://fleetactionreport.com

GW2
Same deal with logging in and getting old living world stuff for free. I think season 2 episode 5 and 6 are free now. 7 and 8 on Tuesday. If you have been keeping up with the bonus achievements next week should be the first big reward, an ascended weapon of choice. Of course you can go and take your time with these bonuses. Achievements. If you do them all you will get a legendary amulet.

July’s Dungeons and More will be pushed back a week until July 16th

LOTRO
Update 30 ‘Blood of Azog’ has arrived, along with the ‘Yore of Azanulbizar’. The new Fall of Khazad-dûm raid is available, along with a handful of balancing tweaks to characters.

https://www.lotro.com/en/content/update-30-release-notes

‘The War of the Rohirrim’ will be an anime style telling the tale of Helm (of Helm’s Deep) Hammerhand. There is a lot of Rohirric history that could be covered.

https://www.theonering.net/torwp/2021/06/10/110782-lord-of-the-rings-anime-from-new-line-announced-philippa-boyens-attached/

And with that, let’s Chat!

What have we been doing in and out of game?

GAME NEWS
What games, that have changed their systems/mechanics, drove you away from the game OR brought you back/into the game?

Love the lore, hate the systems, etc.

Examples

D&D 4th Ed vs. 5th Ed

D&D Pen and Paper vs. Video game

Mass Effect 1 vs 2 (Weapon Heat vs. Clips), Planetary missions vs. Scanning Planets

SWTOR 1-50 (Launch content with character stories) vs. one story for all

WoW Classic
Are you prepared?! THREE DAYS until Burning Crusade Classic launches on June 1st!

New Server: Mankrik-US

Faction: Horde

We were previously on Pagle for WoW Classic but have since changed servers to Mankrik for Burning Crusade Classic!

Once you have created a new character and/or transferred one to Mankrik there are two ways you can be invited to :

* Type /join aielfo in game to request one if there is an Officer or Greeter online to assist you in game at that time.

* Go to the AIE Discord and ask in either the WoW Classic channel or LFO channel for an invite for your character name and someone will help find time to meet you in game for an invite.

The AIE Mounts program is back again! (Insert info from Lars here please)

We look forward to continuing our adventures together again…

THE DARK PORTAL AWAITS US, AIE GUILD!

The AIEMounts interest free loan program to obtain your level 30 mount is continuing in The Burning Crusade. Current details are being worked out but in the meantime contact Lars Gagner via direct message in the AIE Disord. Any donations to the fund are accepted for a possible expansion to be able to help members with loans towards epic riding and perhaps eventually flying mount training. Details about the program is available on the AIE Guild web site or directly via the URL https://bit.ly/aiemounts

SWTOR
This past Friday Marcus, Looci, Tabbytha, and Albus conducted the MEGA event “Where in the Galaxy is Sema San Diego”. Everyone gathered on Hoth, where the pirate Max the Graybeard spun piratical tall tales about where Sema might be. Players worked tirelessly ALL NIGHT to find the items needed to provide clues and Sema was finally found. The winner of the night was Velicc and everyone went to the guild ship where treasures from the guild bank were had by all.

In game news, the new Flashpoint is called Secrets of the Enclave and continues the story of Darth Malgus. He has broken his chains and wants nothing to do with the Empire OR the Republic. We chase his trail into the ancient Jedi Enclave, but only find leftover resonances of him. So far he has escaped us, but he apparently has gotten his hands on two very powerful relics. We don’t know what he is up to, but it can’t be good.

Join us on Tuesdays for MFN and Fridays for our rotating night of Master Mode Flashpoints, Hard Mode Ops Training, Achievements, and MEGA!

See Game Notes

STO
The end of the Klingon Civil War comes in the House United Season.

Only Qo’nos Endures Event: Earn a 4-piece ground set by playing new missions, new TFOs, or new patrols all centered around the new season.

New Bridge for KDF Captains: Based on a new in-game mission.

Lobi store, Zen, and Key Sale until 5/31.

Fleet Action Report is looking for people to help with a PVP episode in 5 weeks. If you’re interested in helping, you can find contact information at fleetactionreport.com.

FFXIV
Guild activities continue as we get ready for Part two of the most recent patch. Teams are running Bozja, for their artifact weapons. Looking for treasure in all the right (and wrong) places on Map Nights. And trying to figure out if that pixel, yes that pixel, is really a safe place to stand on during an EXTREME raid on Eden’s Promise!

GW2
First two episodes of Living world season 2 are Free for a few days longer, log in, get them. If you play through them and do the new bonus meta achievement you will get fancy rewards. After completing 4 of the new living world bonus meta’s you will get your choice of ascended weapon. after 10, you’ll get a thing that you can turn in for en “end of dragons” (next xpac) legendary weapon precursor. Then after 16 you will get a massive 32 slot inventory bag, and when you finish all 24, the final reward is a legendary amulet and a title.

So far for the first 2 episodes, you just had to play through both of them, (no special challenges needed), Then do the following in Drytop: gather 150 things (50 each of wood, ore, and plants), do 10 events, open 20 hidden locked chests.

Jehdai assumes that all 24 will take you to the end of Icebrood Saga, so you will be able to pick up any episodes you missed, without having to buy them on the gem store.

The next two episodes should unlock on Tuesday after reset. (which means you only have about 2 days to log in and claim Episodes 1 and 2 for free).

LOTRO
The Buried Treasure Event has arrived! Available through May 31st.

https://twitter.com/lotro/status/1397966058686910475

Development continues on Update 30: Blood of Azog, and the new Yore of Azanulbizar ‘session/instance’.

Blood of Azog introduces a new story set after the events of the War of Three Peaks, introducing new characters and allowing the player to experience historical moments in Middle-earth’s history as Prince Durin and the Gabil’akkâ make ready to reclaim Mount Gundabad. Players can begin this story by talking to Glóin inside Annâk-khurfu in Elderslade, and it serves as a prologue for adventures to come in Gundabad.

Among the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain, studious scholars have kept detailed accounts of the history of Durin’s Folk. Within these lengthy volumes, there is the tale of the Sixth War of the Dwarves and Orcs, which ended with the Battle of Azanulbizar. Player will experience the momentous events of the battle as their own characters, but through the eyes of Hermáth Stormhammer, a hero of Durin’s Folk, as recounted in his written works.

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

GAME NEWS
The new expansion, Blackwood, and Update 30 come out on June 1st for PC and June 8th for consoles. Blackwood brings a new zone (including a trial, world events, delves and public dungeons), continues this year’s Gates of Oblivion adventure, and adds the new companion system. The new companion system is a way to get an NPC to fight alongside you. There will be quests to recruit them as well as loyalty quests and you will be able to customize their abilities, outfits, and more. Update 30 brings a new tutorial experience. Previously every new chapter brought a different tutorial which meant tenured players had to create a new toon to try it out and see that new story content every expansion. They’ve changed that so going forward everyone one will get the same tutorial and when you complete it, it will let you choose which expansion your character starts in. In mid June, the Endeavors system will be launched for all ESO players, no matter the expansion they have purchased. This system will bring new daily and weekly tasks that reward players gold or experience as well as a new currency. The tasks align with normal in-game activities such as completing quests, killing certain monsters, and harvesting materials. The new currency will allow you to purchase any of the currently available crown crate items without the randomness of opening a crate purchased for crowns and hoping you get the reward you want.

For MFN on June 4th we will focus on checking out the new area with a zone clear.

The game is buy to play, and subscription is ESO+ which will provide an unlimited crafting bag and double your housing and inventory storage.

We’re gearing up to take down the next boss (Moder) in Valheim. Anyone interested in joining the fun should jump into the Discord channel so we can coordinate a time and work to get everyone the items they’ll need for the fight.

WoW
Most of the current WoW news is focused on WoW Classic, however, here’s a brief raid wrap-up

DoA is now 1/10 Heroic
HFO (Alliance Raid team) is 4/10 Heroic Castle Nathria.
PJFC is 9/10 Heroic

If you have an alliance character that’s looking to raid, reach out to Fezgig in AIE Discord for time and day for HFO!

WoW Classic
Guild is in the process of moving to Mankrik (but character moving is paused until pre-patch) then to TBC on Tuesday (that’s when you decide, for each character, if it goes to TBC or stays in Classic Forever) ; no presence of AIE in Classic Forever is expected

The Burning Crusade pre-patch is hitting Live on Tuesday, with new race and all classes on both sides (for Horde, Blood Elf and Paladin) ; levelling is 30% faster (on average)

TBC will be live in two weeks on June 1st, and we’ll be able to go through the Dark Portal

SWTOR
MEGA this month will be Friday the 21st. Join Marcus, Looci, and Tabbytha as they lead us in a hunt for clues to solve the mystery of “Where in the Galaxy is Sema San Diego”.

Double XP, Renown, and Valor is still ongoing in SWTOR until the 18th. XP is always pretty fast in SWTOR, but during this period it goes right to ludicrous speed!

Also, login and check out the new battle pass system called Galactic Seasons. The first season goes for 5 months and awards a new companion, enough currency to buy a new Fleet Stronghold, and many other rewards. It’s a little overwhelming at first glance, so don’t hesitate to join discord and ask questions.

FFXIV
The Final Fantasy Digital Fanfest has come to a close, but exciting stuff was revealed for the next expansion, Endwalker!
1. The new Melee DPS class is “Reaper”, a 2 handed scythe wielder who appears to employ magic from the Void in their attacks, along with summoning what is FFXIV’s version of a demon to both attack and to fuse with during certain phases of the rotation. It will share gear with Dragoon, require a level 70 to access and start at level 70.
2. As was speculated from the first trailer, we will finally get to visit Old Sharlayan in Endwalker. Any veterans from 1.0 will recognize the name of this polis to the far north west of Eorzea, from which many of our allies originate. But will the Sharlayans take to the field with us as the Final Days approach, or will they continue to stay holed up in the walls of their grand city?
3. The male Viera have finally shown their face! As of right now Viera are a female exclusive race, but in Endwalker all aspiring bunnies will get to pick from both genders. Hrothgar will stay exclusively male at Endwalker’s release but the plan is to release female hrothgar as soon as they are ready.
4. Endwalker will release on November 23rd 2021, with early access beginning November 19th. This stretches the definition of “Fall 2021” a bit, as admitted by the dev team. But new content will be released in Patch 5.55 to keep us busy between now and then.

1. Patch 5.55 will be released on May 25th, 2021
2. This will include the final story chapter of the 5.X series, leading into Endwalker.
3. The “Save the Queen” storyline, where we liberate Bozja from Garlemald, continues with the release of a new battlefield, Zadnor, and a new 48 main raid called “[]”. This will include the final stages of the Shadowbringer’s Relic Weapon!
4. The Final Fantasy 15 collaboration will return in September! Get the chance to hangout with Noctis and much more importantly, steal his car!

Did you know that FFXIV’s free trial goes to level 60, and includes the critically-acclaimed expansion Heavensward? Considering the wait for the expansion, now is the perfect time to come join us in FFXIV!

ESO
Clearing zones of Skyshards and Worldbosses
Clearing Public dungeons
Being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week we will be focusing on clearing a couple of public dungeons

The Explorer’s Celebration mini event is now live until May 20th and rewards double exp from every source which will stack with xp boosts such as scrolls. It also gives double gold from kills, quests, and other sources and increased yield from harvest nodes (except fishing). There are no event tickets rewarded as part of this event.

STO
1st: New TFO Announced: Remain Klingon, but no release date has been given.

2nd: 20% Ship Sale until May 17th

3rd: Upgrade Weekend until May 17th

4th: Tholian Trouble Event until May 25th. 14 days of progress to earn Tholian Web Array Universal Console.
Earn progress in 2 revamped TFOs;

5th: Fleet Action Report is looking for anyone interested in helping with a PVP episode to take place in about 6 weeks. If interested, you can find contact information at FleetActionReport.com.

GW2
Major class re-balance patch hit this week. There is a chance your favorite class might be the meta now. Same deal as last time with the living world stuff. Dungeon night 2nd Friday of the Month, next one is going to be June 11th.

LOTRO
See Game News

GAME NEWS
This weekend has been a 25% bonus to all Skirmish Mark gains

The buried treasure event should begin on May 27th

The Midsummer event will be next month with rumors of new rewards

Update 30 ‘Blood of Azog’ expected on the bullroarer test server this week

Update 31 is Gundabad and should include the new Brawler (i.e. Tulkas?) class

In the works:
A Landscape Difficulty System

An Opt-In system, not automatic

You can increase the difficulty of an area to match your level.

Think of it as a lure / bonus to ‘go back and finish those deeds’

Class balance meetings are in the works. Stay tuned

More Dev talks on the way as either an in-show guest, or with a dedicated show

PvMP continues mainly on Tues/Thurs evenings

You have to get them for free from the shop via the Battlenet launcher. They do not automatically appear in your collections in-game.

SWTOR ESCAPE POD CAST 378: VET MODE TACTICS
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-378-vet-mode-tactics/

This week we continue our series on what it takes to get into Veteran content with talk of fight tactics and differences with story mode fights.

SWTOR ESCAPE POD CAST 379: 6.3 THE DESCENT IS DECENT
http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-379-6-3-the-descent-is-decent/

6.3 is here already. Bet you didn’t see this coming!

NOMADS
In Valheim, another possible boss night on a Wednesday night coming up in the next week or two.

The Board Game night is coming up on 5/6.

Don’t forget to take a look at the Nomads section of discord to keep up to date on these events and other shenanigans.

WoW
WoW met the goals to unlock Bananas and Daisy. You have to get them for free from the shop via the Battlenet launcher. They do not automatically appear in your collections in-game. To wear Daisy as a backpack, you have to target your Daisy pet (after summoning) and type “/beckon” for it to work. Once Daisy is riding on your back, you can summon another battle pet to tag along with your adventures.

Patch 9.1 PTR continues and there were several interviews with Ion H this week going over patch 9.1 details.

WoW Classic
The TBC pre patch coming soon, and Burning Crusade 4-6 weeks later.
Many new players are coming to participate in the best 2 WoW expansions of all time (TBC and Wrath)… so come join us !

SWTOR
A content patch dropped this past week bringing a new flashpoint, a new story beat, and the beginning of a new pvp season. But above all that, it brought a new system called Galactic Seasons. Daily and weekly objectives award points, currency and rewards. You can spend the currency along the way or save it up for the big prize of a new stronghold on the fleet. This season is called “The Stranger from Kubindi” and starts out with a new companion named Altuur zok Adon. It is similar to a battlepass type system in other games, so you can buy progress as well.

But wait, there’s more! Double XP returns starting May 4th and continuing until May 18th. And, as is the tradition, there will be a new astromech in the mail for everyone. No matter where we go for MFN this Tuesday night, XP is sure to rain down.

And last but not least, join us this Friday for Master Mode Flashpoints with Maellung. This will be on the imperial side and will target those flashpoints that are required for the Aratech Ice Mission.

FFXIV
Our Thursday event heading into the fields of Bozja is on break until the next area is released in patch 5.55.

The digital fanfest begins on Friday May 14th and will be streamed for free and will reveal more about the next expansion, Endwalker, which releases sometime this year. This will include the reveal for the new melee class.

ESO
The guild has been clearing zones of Skyshards and World Bosses and being lead off cliffs by Dankinia

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears. Next week they will be focusing on clearing a couple of public dungeons

If you play ESO on the new Xbox or Playstation, on June 8th the “Console Enhanced” modes will be released. The update provided improvements to reflections, textures, draw distance and more while giving options to select between Performance and Fidelity modes.

STO
STO is running the following events:
1st: Tholian Trouble: A new event from May 4th to may 25th. This event hosts two updated TFOs, and rewards a new universal console that you can equip on any ship.
2nd: Bonus Dilithium Event: Earn bonus dilithium until May 4th; This is an in-game currency that can be used to purchase in-game items or traded for Zen which is STOs real-life currency.
3rd: Galaxy goes to Red Alert until May 4th; This is a 2 week long event. If you complete 10 days of participation you’ll earn a Specialization Point, an Ultimate Tech Upgrade, and an Experimental Ship Upgrade.
4th: Command the Jovian Heavy Raider; A new top-tier ship added to the Infinity Lockbox.
5th: Command the The Kwejian Pilot Escort; A new top-tier ship added to the Angel’s Wake Lockbox.
6th: Delta Recruitment Event until May 13th on PC and from May 13th to June 10th on Consoles; This event allows newly created characters to become Delta Recruits, a special type of character that rewards various in-game items for completing in-game challenges, such as leveling or joining a fleet. Some of these rewards can be collected on any characters attached to the account.
7th: The Hosts of Fleet Action Report are inviting anyone and everyone to join them in-game on Monday nights after their show ends. They are planning on running TFOs that are attached to any current events. If there are no current events, they will run whichever TFOs Captain’s are needing.
All of this and more will be discussed on the Fleet Action Report livestream 9pm Eastern Monday night.

GW2
The monthly dungeon and more has a set schedule, 2nd Friday of the month, so the next dungeon and more night is May 14th.

There are actually a couple fun and exciting game things happening right now: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/guild-wars-2-live-summer-2021/

Starting May 25, Living World episodes will be in the spotlight chronologically. Episodes are free to unlock during their spotlight week, and we’ll update them with new achievements. Complete all the new Living World Season 2 and 3 achievements to earn a voucher for a Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons precursor weapon. When the expansion launches, you can redeem it and begin crafting your very own third-generation legendary weapon

LOTRO
14th Anniversary event runs April 21- May 11.

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

Destiny 2
Guardian Games return https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Seasons/Events/GuardianGames

Light activity in the Clan, make sure to get in touch with other Guardians in the AIE Discord #destiny2 channel.

WoW
Noob Raid, after skipping Skriekwing this whole time, has now killed her back to back weekends. Go team!!

There are a lot of changes with raid teams, some new ones, old ones recruiting, and some switching into different levels of raid. Be sure to check out the two raid channels in Discord if you are interested in that part of the game.

Even after the first major guild purge for the Alliance side, we are at 739 characters in the guild! And the raid team has downed 2 bosses on Heroic!! Congrats Blue Side!!!! #QuestforCoguild

Tuesday starts World Quest week, so make sure you grab your quest in Oribos before you do anything on Tuesday!!

SWTOR
Since the last AIE podcast, AIE in swtor had its first Hard Mode Operations Training night and it was a big hit. Marcus took the team into Terror From Beyond and it sounded like everyone had a blast. Everyone, except the Writhing Horror, that is. Sadly, she died and was stripped of her loot. If you are interested in HM Ops training, watch the #hm-ops-training channel in discord for sign ups and updates.

Just a reminder that Friday nights now have a set rotation:

1st – Flashpoints Night – @Maellung Arrowshield
2nd – Veteran Ops Learning Night – @MarcusB814
3rd – Achievements Night – @Kehohu#0489, @bcavanagh
4th – Monthly Epic Guild Activity – @MarcusB814
5th – (if there is one) – Wildcard/Break

Come join us on Tuesday nights for MFN and Friday nights for an abundance of things! We also have Operations teams running on other nights of the week that often need fill-ins, so feel free to ask in discord if that is something you want to do.

ESO
Dungeon runs to maximize the cake experience buff
Clearing zones of Skyshards and Worldbosses
There is normally at least one death caused by gravity due to Dankinia leading people off cliffs

MFN’s activities happen each week and involve either zone clears, daily dungeon runs, and/or public dungeon clears.

In mid-June when update 30 is released, a new system called Endeavors will launch.

Endeavors will bring new daily and weekly tasks that grant you rewards such as gold and experience along with a new currency called Seals of Endeavor

Endeavors will be available each time you log in and require tasks such as pickpocketing items, completing quests, and crafting items, among other activities. So basically things you would normally due while playing will give you additional rewards.

Seals of Endeavor can be used to purchase currently available Crown Crate items and will be account based. So no need to hope you get lucky when you open a crate, just save up those seals and buy the item you want.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

STO
STO started a Delta Recruitment event. This rewards characters with a variety of in-game items for completing certain challenges, such as leveling up or crafting. Some rewards are account unlocks. A player will need to create a new character if they don’t already have a Delta recruit. We will be detailing Delta Recruits on Fleet Action Report tomorrow evening.

GW2
The monthly dungeon and more has a set schedule, 2nd Friday of the month, so the next dungeon and more night is May 14th.

LOTRO
SNL is still going on Saturday night from 8:30-10:30 eastern, you can even come hangout in voice with us too

14th Anniversary event runs April 21- May 11
Monday will be a patch that includes the further adventures of Bilbo

On April 24th we will be running the Anniversary stuff for SNL
There is some stuff in the planning stages please stay tuned to the lotro channel for upcoming AIE events
If you would like to run group content let us know in the lotro channel

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

GAME NEWS
Patch 5.5 is here!

Patch features:

More Main Story Quests with a new dungeon, Paglth’an.
Final 24-Player Dark Apocalypse Raid
New Chapter of The Sorrow of Werlyt including an 8 player trial.
New Housing furnishing items from the Furnishing Design contest added
New hairstyles! Want to look like an attractive android that can slay thousands of enemies without breaking a sweat (because Androids). Now you can.
Targeting reticles is now more useful for showing the target’s direction. Useful for jobs that need to attack the sides or rear, or when the bad guy is going to do something bad right in the front.
The Unreal Trial has rotated to Levithan. Good luck!
New Bozjan front stats, Notoriety. After a critical engagement (like a FATE that’s closed off), someone may be selected for a 1-on-1 duel with a major NPC. Having a higher Notoriety will increase your chances of being selected.
The Ishgard Restoration has finished, but not to the end of the events. Every 2 hours, a special “Fête” will spawn to celebrate the restoration of Ishgard.
Achievement log has their rewards listed and can be accepted right in the achievement window.
More dungeons added to explorer mode. Performance actions can be used in explorer mode.
Duty Finder roulette changes! If you queue up as a full group (4 for dungeons, 8 for trials), there is a new setting that the only dungeons you will get will be within 8 levels of the lowest member in the group. This setting is in the Duty Finder settings, Limited Leveling Roulette.
You can do a search for emotes now! Huzzah!
Open Beta for the PS5 edition starts! Free for all registered used of the PS4 version. 60fps for 1080, usually 60fps for 1440, and 30fps for 4k.
High resolution UI for windows and mac players. (Makes a huge difference!)

FC News

Maps nights are still map-tastic! Saturday at 9:30pm EST. Maps are accepted but not required. We run level 80 maps, so please be a level 80 character. You should have all of the Shadowbringers zones unlocked at this time, but if not, having them unlocked is also a requirement. Great riches, fun, and merriment await!

Thanks to the patch, the FC activity is way, way up! Don’t be afraid to ask in FC
chat or Discord if you have some activities that others can help out with. This may be just roulettes, dungeons, and any other group activity.

Dates to remember

May 14 & 15 – Digital Fan Festival 2021
FINAL FANTASY XIV Digital Fan Festival 2021
Expect tons of details of the rest of Shadwbringers and a tons more details about Endwalker, our next expansion.
Merch Store
Need a FFXIV face mask? A Moogle seat cushion for the hours of working from home, home schooling, or those long static group nights? There you go.
Digital Item Store Including the Lunar Whale
Think toward the end of FF4. Not aware of it? Well, it’s a big whale that is also an 8-PERSON MOUNT!

Fall 2021
Endwalker Expansion. We might get a more accurate date from the Fan Festival.

Still haven’t tried FFXIV yet? AAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! What are you waiting for?

Free trial is a ridiculous amount of content. For free! Get going!

FINAL FANTASY XIV Free Trial

Free trial takes you through the base game and the first expansion, including all of the patch content in each. No time limits. You are doing a disservice by not playing this game!

Board gaming on the 1st Thursday of the month @ 7:30PM Central (8:30 PM Eastern) #board-games

In Valheim, we’re planning a Wednesday Night Boss Fight on Wednesday, April 7 at 9:30PM EDT (8:30 Max Time). We’ll spend an hour trying to take down as many of the bosses in Valheim as we can.

WoW
Per the post in the WOW discord channel, there is an upcoming guild purge in WoW Alliance. Don’t forget to log into your toons to avoid being swept up in the spring cleaning. And, while you are logging into your account, make sure you acquire the charity pet “Bananas”! It’s not automatic, but all you have to go to your battlenet launcher to get Bananas!

WoW Classic
Just a reminder, Burning Crusade Classic is in beta, so if you’re interested and have access, take a look. We are still in discussions about what the AIE Guild and the greater alliance is going to do.

SWTOR
In AIE Swtor, our Friday night schedule has solidified into a repeatable order of events. We have a new addition to the lineup, which is Hard Mode Ops Training. It’s one night a month where Marcus will be teaching how to do mechanics in harder mode fights. If you ever wanted to learn how to take that step up from Story Mode Operations, this is for you. The first night will be April 9th at 9PM Eastern.

The repeating order of Friday night events is now:
1st-MM Flashpoints
2nd-HM Ops
3rd-Achievements
4th-MEGA
5th (if there is one) – Wildcard/Break

In Swtor news, the Public Test Server is up showing the new Flashpoint (Secrets of the Enclave) and the beginnings of an new reward system called Galactic Seasons.

Join us on Tuesday nights for MFN! No experience required. No gear required. Sometimes there is a level requirements. Check out BC’s post in Discord, usually on Tuesday afternoon, to see what we are doing that week.

FFXIV
Patch 5.5 Releases April 13th. This contains part 1 of the patch story, the new Diamond Weapon Trial, and the final chapter of the Nier Automata crossover, where we are heading into “The Tower at Paradigm’s Breach”. This patch will also close out the story of the Ishgardian Restoration.

Part 2 will come towards the end of May, and will have the the rest of the patch’s storyline as well as updates to Save the Queen storyline, where we will head into Zadnor to liberate Bozja from the 4th Legion and finish this expansion’s relic weapons.

The Digital Fanfest will take place on May 14th and 15th. All events will be streamed for free. Various FF4 pets will be available for purchase along with the game’s first 8 player mount, the Lunar Whale, on the same day the fanfest begins.

ESO
Cool things the guild has been doing:
• First there was pie for the Jester’s event and now the cake is no longer a lie during ESO’s 7 year Anniversary Jubilee event.
• Recent MFNs have been focused on maximizing the benefits of the experience boosts in effect during the in-game events by grouping up to run dungeons and slay dragons.
• There is normally at least one death caused by gravity due to Dankinia leading people off cliffs

Things planned or coming up for the guild:
• MFN’s will continue to be focused around the daily dungeons and dragon slaying to take advantage of the in-game event currently in progress.

Game or press release news:
• The Anniversary Jubilee event to celebrate ESO’s 7th anniversary started on April 1st and runs until April 13th at 10am EDT. After you help the chef bake a cake you get 3 event tickets once per day (per account) from using and eating the cake as well and 100% increase experience buff that can be refreshed every 2 hours.
• All of the games daily quests reward you with a Jubilee Gift box that can contain crafting mats, motif pages, furniture recipes, outfit style pages.

• The Blackwood Prologue questline is live for all platforms and anyone with access to the base game. Completing the quest and you will get a Daedric Unwarding Amulet memento as a keepsake

STO
STO is running their First Contact Day Event. It includes two TFOs; Synth Wave and First Contact Reenactment, and a patrol; One Night in Bozeman.

GW2/strong>
The next Dungeon and more night is April 9th from 9-11 eastern

LOTRO
For SNL we will be doing skirmishes and various group content to take advantage of VIP weekend from 4/8 – 4/12. On 4/17 we will be returning to the starter areas to do some deed runs as a group so that people can get some lotro points and virtue XP.

And with that, let’s talk about what we have been doing in and out of game- and Tet has a question of the show!

There is normally at least one death caused by gravity due to Dankinia leading people off cliffs

The Jesters Festival in-game even starts on Thursday, March 25th and runs until April 1st at 10am EDT. As usual, for MFN we will be grouping up to help each other complete the dailies. The first daily each day will reward event tickets.

This event also has a 100% experience boost memento you can obtain and use for the duration of the event which will be super handy now that the Champion point cap has been lifted.

The free pet in the crown store that is available as part of update 29 as well as the free respecs will no longer be available after March 22nd at 10 am EDT on PC and March 30th 10am EDT on Consoles so don’t forget to grab the pet before it’s gone.

FFXIV
Patch 5.5, titled “Death Unto Dawn” has an official release date of April 13th. We’re getting a Letter from the Producer Live on April 2nd, which will come with the trailer for the patch.

The patch is slated to contain a whole bunch of content, but the highlights include:
Part 1 of the 5.5 story, part 2 coming at a later date.
The final alliance raid in the YoRHA: Dark Apocalypse crossover
The close of the Sorrow of Werlyt storyline, where we get to fight FFXIV’s version of the Diamond Weapon.
A new Bozja battlefield, “Zadnor” which will close out the Save the Queen storyline and finish our relic weapons”
New rare crafting ingredients in chests for map night!

STO
STO Is currently running a Galaxy Goes to Red Alert event. 10 days of progress earns an Experimental Ship Upgrade Token, a Specialization Point, and an Ultimate Tech upgrade. They game is also running a Bonus Marks event and a Mudd’s Market sale which includes a new bundle. All these end on 4/1/21.

GW2
The next Dungeon and more night is April 9th from 9-11 eastern

LOTRO
SNL is still going on Saturday night from 8:30-10:30 eastern

Update 29 has dropped and with it a new level 45 zone.

March 18- April 7 is the return of the Spring Festival so we are currently getting lost in the maze

Destiny 2
Iron Banner has returned.
International Women’s Day (March 8, Monday)/History Month in March. Bungie is making a pin available on their merch store that will also include a special emblem in-game with purchase. All proceeds are donated to AnitaB.org during March.

TWAB (This Week at Bungie): https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/50170

AIE has progressed through the Deep Stone Crypt and is currently working on the final boss.

Valheim
Thanks to Sartavius, an AIE Valheim server has been up for about a week now. IP address and password are pinned in the Valheim channel in Discord.

The team has set up a couple bases with portal connections. The starting area has a portal directly to the main crafting base. From there, there’s a portal to a swamp hunting lodge. A handful of other bases, huts and mining operations are scattered about as well and everyone is free to build more. A rough map is pinned in the Discord too.

Congrats to the team for taking out both the first and second bosses so far. Each boss increases the difficulty of the game events a bit but also opens up higher tiers of crafting to help progress.

The servers are limited to 10 concurrent players but any number can be popping in and out. We haven’t had more than 6 on at a peak so there’s still more room to grow. The Alpha base has private rooms for 8 people and we could make more..

And… for those not familiar with what we are talking about here, Valheim is an indy survival/building/sandbox game that’s gotten pretty popular. The very small dev team has some plans for additional bosses, zones, weapons, etc. We’ll keep an eye on it as it develops and keep on keeping on with our little world.

SWTOR
In Swtor this week, we got a minor patch–6.2.1–which gave us some UI improvements changes, a brief story beat, bug fixes and some new bugs.

MFN, Ops teams, and Friday night activities are purring along. In fact, this Friday, the 12th is MEGA.. Marcus is going to lead us in some guild pvp warzones and Galactic Star Fighter. This is a unique opportunity to play around with pvp without stress and to learn some things about controlling your ship in GSF. We can set up the guild stronghold for pvp and play there, or even create a guild instance of a warzone. Even if you don’t normally pvp, it’s safe to attend. Honest! Well, unless you are Max.

Pop into our discord and say hi!

FFXIV
Map nights, every Saturday for loot, prizes, and much merriment! Very low skill bar, but very high fun potential. Every saturday at 9:30pm eastern. Bringing a map is never required to attend, but greatly appreciated

Bozja Front! Beat up the Garlean Empire, cause they got it commin’! Great leveling opportunity for your level 70-80 toons. Never stepped in there before? No worries, as this is a great chance to see what this content is all about. Thursdays at 9pm eastern

Discussion is starting back up to restart the Retro-Raid nights! Get those old raids and see stuff that you may not be able to clear on your own or via the duty finder. We are in the planning and scheduling phases, but we need your help to make sure we make this event available to as many as we can. Make your voices heard on the #ffxiv discord channel.

We also have had a few new folks and returning folks to the game. This is awesome news. Please remember to reach out to the new and returning members. Also, for the new members, speak up! We’d love to show you around the game, make some friends, and have some great adventures along the way.

A few FFXIV announcements and reminders. If you were one of the few lucky ones to get a PS5, the Playstation 5 specific version will be available on April 13th. This is a free upgrade for existing PS4 players. The game plays today on the PS5, but it is the PS4 version. Now, you can actually utilize the power of your PS5! Also on April 13th, we have patch 5.5. Last part of the Dark Apocalypse 24-player raid series.

We do have some small information on our next expansion, Endwalker! Details are limited now, but more information will be released during the all digital, Fan Fest Online, May 15-16.

ESO
MFN’s have been well attended and we’ve been spending time taking part in the current in game event to earn event tickets.

There have been several conversations recently regarding leveling and skills. Feel free to ask questions or join in the conversations in discord

There is normally at least one death caused by gravity due to Dankinia leading people off cliffs

The first DLC for the Gates of Oblivion yearlong even comes out on March 8th on PC and March 16th on consoles. There will be two new dungeons as part of this DLC. As usual, the first MFN after the release will be spent exploring the dungeons together.

Update 29 comes out on March 8th on PCs and March 16th on consoles which will overhaul the Champion points system. As part of this overhaul, there will be a forced reset of all skill points and champion points.

There will be a free pet in the crown store to claim and for two weeks after the forced reset all re-specs will be free so you can try out new builds, make adjustments, and get used to the new system.

On March 17th the bonus mount and pet you get for pre-ordering the next chapter, Blackwood, will no longer be offered and Blackwood is still scheduled to come out in June.

STO
STO has started the year long campaign giving you a single free ship from the lockbox system, 1,500 lobi (3 free ships if you wait for a 50% sale in the lobi store), or two free c-storr Tier 6 ship tokens.

The first event working towards that is the Voth Advance, where running one of the two TFO s will give you credit and after 14 daily competing Molor’s flaming sword.

As for the fleet, we are still making great progress on the federation side. We are closing in on finishing the K-13 space station and the colony is nearing the Kentari bridge officers unlock.

KDF side (klingon defense force) is making strides at pushing up the dilithium mine and unlocking the discounts to all the costs of the fleet projects.

GW2
Dungeons and more night is March 12 at 9 Eastern/8 Central

LOTRO
During SNL we ran skirmishes to get people some levels

Next weekend is the + 25% xp bonus so we will be looking to once again help people level their toons
March 18- April 7 is the return of the Spring Festival so we look to getting lost in the maze again

We expect that within the next 2 week to have the producer’s letter and Update 29

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

Need an invite to the Clan/Community ask in discord.

Destiny 2
Season of the Chosen is live, in week number 2.
AIE is raiding on PC current content: Deep Stone Crypts.

WoW
Patch 9.0.5 and patch 9.1 content information were the major focus of BlizzConline for Warcraft.

Flying will be available just by progressing through the new covenant story and you will get a covenant themed mount as well. Ground mounts will no longer shiver with fear and will be able to be summoned in the Maw. Also, as part of the covenant story line, a new covenant themed armor set will be rewarded.

A new landmass that will be our foothold in the Maw will be uncovered, named Korthia, and what secrets of the First Ones does it hold?

A new 10-boss raid, the Sanctum of Dominion, will launch with the true Eye of the Jailer, the Tarragrue, Kel’Thuzad, and Sylvanas as raid bosses.

A new 8-boss MegaDungeon, Tazavesh the Veiled Market, will also be available at Mythic 0 difficulty during launch. And yes, it involves a bank heist, so Oceans 11 meets the Brokers? I’m in.

Torghast gets new layers and a new wing with new enemies and traps.

WoW Classic
Raiding in Classic continues with the United Orgrimmar team who are active each week.

During BlizzConline The Burning Crusade Classic was announced and it’ll come with the option to move forward to TBC, stay with Classic, or with a paid service, per character, keep a character in each type of server. We are just beginning to discuss how the AIE guild and UO will proceed, so keep an eye on #wow-classic channel on Discord.

SWTOR
It’s been a quiet week in SWTOR, with guildies recovering from Total Galactic War and spending some time on their Imperial Characters after going all out on the pub side in the previous week.

Patch 6.2.1, which was scheduled to be released last Tuesday, was delayed when Austin’s Bioware Studio was impacted by the calamitous weather events in Texas. There is no new date announced yet. Stay tuned.

Come join in for Mandatory Fun Night on Tuesdays. We alternate between Republic and Imperial sides each week. There are no gear or experience requirements, however, some activities do require a character level of 70. We will always let you know when this is the case. Even if you are just starting out, come join us in discord and listen to “Story time with Max”.

ESO
We’ve had several new members join and we’ve been helping them with training gear, leveling, and Skyshard farming during our MFN nights
We’ve focused on clearing zones of Skyshards, defeating World Bosses, and rampaging though public dungeons the last couple of MFNs

The Tribunal celebration in-game event starts on February 25 and runs until March 9th. As with prior in-game events, we will be focused on doing the daily dungeon and world boss quests as well as the public dungeons in Vvardenfell and Clockwork City for our MFNs during this time period to help guild members get as many of the rewards a possible.

The first DLC for the Gates of Oblivion year long event comes out on March 8th for PC/Mac and march 16th for consoles. The DLC is titled Flames of Ambition and will have two new dungeons. There will be a full reset of skill points and champion points when Update 29 drops, people may want to prepare for that.

FFXIV
See Game Notes

GW2
The next Dungeons and more night will be on the “Ides of March”

LOTRO
2/25 – 3/1 is VIP event boost, So on 2/27 we will be helping our kin members level up their toons
Monster Play has been quiet for the server so we will pause it as a guild until it picks back up.

There is supposed to be a new build to hit bullroarer this week

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

GAME NEWS
FFXIV has a free login campaign going until March 31st. So if your account has lapsed, come on back and join us for Map Nights and more!

On top of that, if anything we talk about today sounds interesting, FFXIV has an amazing free trial. You get all of the base game AND the Heavensward expansion. This is a ton of content, and it includes one of the best expansions and story lines in Final Fantasy, so do come check it out!

Patch 5.5
FFXIV Patch 5.5 Part 1 is releasing April 13th! This will be part 1 of the story leading into the next expansion named Endwalker. Part 2 will come at a later date between now and the release of Endwalker.
The antagonist of this part of the story arc has declared to us he is setting about recreating the Final Days, something as bad as it sounds. It’s an event barely remembered that happened in the distant past, and resulted in everything that has occurred up until now in FFXIV. While his plan has been set into motion with the appearance of ominous glowing towers around the world, we will likely see the fruits of his labor with the release of this patch.
The Nier Automata tie-in raid series will come to a close with the release of the final raid in the series.
Side note, as someone who has no investment in Nier, having never played the game, this story line has turned out to be pretty great. People who loved Nier seem to like it even better, so if you like Nier Automata
The final part of the Sorrows of Werlyt storyline, will be released with 5.5. This has been part of the “Weapons” Trial series, where we have fought the Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald weapon. Next up appears to the Diamond Weapon.
Before Part 2 is released, we’ll also get the next step in the “Save the Queen” content, which is both excellent story content and the way to work towards this expansion’s relic weapon. Come join me in saving the homeland of the Hrothgar!
Other usual suite of goodies, including a new dungeon, crafting updates, and more!

Endwalker
Despite having the word “end” in the title and some rumors going around, Endwalkers is NOT the last expansion of FFXIV, but the conclusion of the storyline that started in A Realm Reborn (and in 1.0 somewhat)
Usually FFXIV has an expansion quest line that has a satisfying ending, but has loose ends that are tied up in the .3 patch series, where 4 and 5 transition to the next expansion. Shadowbringers followed this formula as well. Endwalker will be unique however, in which the entire storyline will wrap up with the expansion itself. 6.1 will then start the next story arc.
The main story quest writer from Shadowbringers, “Natsuko Ishikawa”, is writing the story for Endwalkers as well. Every piece of content she has written has been great, and she always manages to top it, so I’m personally very excited.
We’ll be journeying to a lot of places that have been mentioned since A Realm Reborn but that we’ve never had the chance to visit, including the moon! While the moon may look similar to our moon, it’s actually the remains of a defeated god…so we’ll see how that goes.
The expansion will include two new jobs, a healer job named the Sage, and an unknown melee DPS job.
Sage is going to be “a Barrier” healer using Nouliths, a series of magical “things” that you control with your magic. If you’ve never wanted to be a healer because they weren’t stylish or cool enough, definitely give Sage a look!
Yoshida provided a very vague hint on the melee dps job, and the consensus of the rumour mill is that it’ll employ a scythe. Beyond that, we’re not sure. Some even speculated a Corsair job, like some kind

CLOSE
