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.

Well, it really does look like @SecretWorldLgds updates tomorrow.

Both Orochi Tower and lair.

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.

Second Tokyo board drops this week on Secret World Legends.

Also, stage two of any vanity transfers from your old The Secret World account to the new Secret World Legends account.  So, basically, go into your old account, buy every pet and hat you can find, and generally drain your account of various currencies.  Then go transfer it over, and voila! – You get a bunch of your old cosmetics back.

…Yeah, I know that this isn’t really interesting to people who read me and who don’t play SWL, but it’s the second-most exciting thing that’s going to happen around here this week*.  Anyway, they’re going to be putting up the Tokyo Docks this week, and there’s a bunch of changes involved.  It’s promising to be very exciting, although I don’t think that we’re quite at the point where we’re getting the Tokyo dungeons back; I guess those and the Tokyo Lair is going to be bundled up with the Orochi Tower later.

New York Raid dropped today in Secret World Legends…

…if you play, and you haven’t gotten around to getting online for it yet, be warned: you need to pick up the mission in the central hub, go talk to the crazy conspiracy theory blogger in Brooklyn, and go to the grate before you try to group and/or queue it. Also: do yourself a favor and do the easier Story mode, but take it seriously.  You’re going to absolutely need two tanks and two healers, because… I dunno why about the tanks, because I don’t meatshield, but the tanks kept saying that they needed to keep switching off and I assume that there were reasons for that. As for healers, you’ll need two because one ain’t enough to keep everybody alive. And stay in close.  I managed to wipe three times running just by getting out too far.

PS: But we killed the so-and-so.

Secret World Legends Devstream up.

Found here. Biggest news: the New York Raid is coming back next week.  It will have Story Mode, which means that a regular team can tackle it.  But we’re all gonna raid it anyway.  Also, mega-boss raids soon.  Secret World Legends is making these cabal-friendly, so if you belong to a cabal* already (like, say, League of Monster Slayers) you’ll be at an advantage to get in on these.

PS: They’re bringing back Tank Guy. I missed Tank Guy. He was cool.

*Basically, what other MMOs call ‘guilds.’

FunCom suspends players who bought stolen Secret World Legends currency.

Well, I guess it’s an indication that Secret World Legends is succeeding: gold farming is alive and well. From Facebook:

Over this past weekend, our systems identified a number of accounts that were involved in purchasing Marks of Favour from third-party sites. These accounts are now suspended, and we will continue taking action against similar accounts moving forward.

Please be aware that we are taking a no-tolerance approach to this matter. Currency that these third-party sellers offer comes from purchases made with stolen payment information. This is the case for nearly every instance of this we’ve come across, and this is considered fraud.
