Sorry: been chasing the Secret World Legends Pinata all day.

You know how it is: you schedule your entire day around logging into Secret World Legends every hour to kill the Goddess of Death, and next thing you know, it’s 11 PM and you’re wondering where the time went.  Especially since there’s a new update to Conan Exiles today, too, which means more things to dress up your dolls clothe your thralls with and add to your dollhouse castle.  Soon I shall have a wall around my entire encampment, and then my archers will kill those mammoths for me, safe in my fortress of Skyrimcraft… (more…)

Secret World Legends’ Christmas Event starts Tuesday.

A two-weeker, if I remember correctly. New missions, maybe a new boss, new caches, and – this is the important one – unlike the Halloween event all of your characters can get the daily rewards.  Which means that your alternates might be able to get that riding moose, after all (I rather badly want a riding moose). If Halloween is any indication, we’re not going to see a five-man dungeon; they’re just going to convert the existing dungeons for solo play.  Which is a crying shame, because I remember the old dungeon being a tricky exercise that was a lot of fun to work out. But what can you do? Besides, I’m happy to have my game and my cabal and my Christmas event back…

Secret World Legends makes a big adjustment to play.

A very significant one, in fact.

In the mail: my Illuminati Secret World Legends pin!

This is probably not an official Secret World Legends pin from Origami Soldier, but since I saw this on a devstream with the developers going ZOMG this is so cool get ’em before they’re gone I figure that it was OK. Or it was the Twitter account. Anyway,  it’s a really pretty Lumie pin. I just need to figure out what I’m going to wear it on.

Wow. It’s Thursday? Sorry, I’m doing the Secret World Legends Samhain event…

…and it’s been broken down into quick five-minute jumps online, every hour. Jump online, kill Jack, get rewards, it isn’t one particular kind of candy, jump back out until the top of the hour. Welcome to Secret World Legends’ Halloween event! It’s lots of fun, but it’s kind of surreal.

Illuminati Secret World Legends pin? IT MUST BE MINE.

So I’m putting up a link here to remind me of that, when I actually have money to buy one.

The Illuminati one looks pretty sweet, honestly. And blue is my favorite color,  which is one reason I went Illuminati in the first place when I signed up for The Secret World. …Dag, I’ve been playing this game for three years now? And tomorrow is the start of the Halloween event. Fun times.

…Well, I got the bleeping wings.

Current endgame for Secret World Legends: fight, sneak, and in one case simply run (creeped out) through twenty-one floors, to get to the boardroom. Fight through the boardroom to get to the penthouse.  Fight through three crazy Japanese katana schoolgirls wearing rabbit heads to get to Lilith.  Annnnnnnd then there was an exposition dump, punctuated with occasional bouts of killing monsters.

And now I have wings.  It was a fun afternoon, but I am exhausted and I need to sleep now. The freaking lair will still be there tomorrow.

‘The Love Song of Morgaine ‘Morganey’ Jones.’

Since I’m waiting patiently for the Secret World Legends server to turn back on… time for bad fan parody poetry!  Aren’t you lucky! In related news; posting may be a bit light today.

 

The Love Song of Morgaine ‘Morganey’ Jones

Let us go then, you and I,
To the Tower, defiant against the sky
Like a brooding castle from the fables;
Let us go, through certain ghost-demented streets,
From babbling retreats
To Filthy nights in purple-hued hotels
And noodle restaurants that fight nine Hells:
Streets that contort like a whispered argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an penultimate quest’s end…
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”
Let us go and make our visit.

Tokyo Lair finally coming in next @SecretWorldLgds update?

That’s what they’re claiming. Supposedly it’s all scheduled for October 11th: Orochi Tower, endgame, lair, wrist signets. Kaiden dungeons will not be showing up in Secret World Legends in the next update, or in fact this year. Still, a Lair in Tokyo is going to be the first no-fooling new content in this game that we’re going to see, so having that show up in two weeks will be pretty sweet. (more…)

Busy for the rest of the week.

Got something going on this week — nothing to do with me directly, and nothing bad, but I can’t talk about it — and the preparations for that are ongoing, and involve a lot of driving.  Also, the Kaidan Docks finally dropped for Secret World Legends, and it turns out that there are a couple of missions I apparently didn’t do in The Secret World!  Shocking.  Also, very Jungian.  No, literally, one adventure required me to go into the Jungian subconscious and tell the game whether my character had parents who loved her.  My answer to that, and other questions, turned out to make a difference in the final boss battle.

Because that’s the kind of game that Secret World Legends is.
