FINAL FANTASY XIV BRINGS AROUND ITS ANNUAL HALLOWEEN EVENT ON OCTOBER 19

ffxiv

Another All Saints’ Wake is approaching once more in Final Fantasy XIV, and that means players will need to deal with the usual antics of the Continental Circus and its associated void-based schemes. Of course, this year also sees the addition of a woman from Othard with an… unusual set of traits. Given the year’s rewards, one may be certain that the Lupin are going to be involved somewhere along the line.

Yes, the latest set of festivities will award you the chance to dress up like a werewolf to terrify onlookers and irritate the heck out of any Lupin who are now being mocked by your getup. There are also housing decorations for those who prefer to fill their houses with pumpkins rather than dressing up in a costume; the game allows for either. The event starts on October 19th and runs through November 1st, so you can be dressing up with a tail and humming “Werewolves of London” before the week is out.

Black Desert Online Kamasylvia Expansion Coming on Sep.27th

bdo

The long awaited Kamasylvia Expansion will be coming to Black Desert Online on Wednesday, September 27 after that week’s maintenance cycle. Kamasylvia is an expansion that will be rolled out in two parts, with the second part arriving very soon.

Kamasylvia will be offered at no additional cost and hosts exciting new PvE content that continues the game’s narrative. New story quests and side missions will explore the background of the region’s native classes, such as the Ranger and Dark Knight, and their relation to the legendary Kamasylve Tree. To celebrate the new Kamasylvia region, new events such as the Alchemist of Kamasylvia and Growth of a Kamasylve Tree will help adventurers obtain extra items.

 

Black Desert Online‘s new region, Kamasylvia, features elven woodlands that stretch out to the south of Hexe Sanctuary, from the Valtarra Mountains to the Shady Tree Forest. In terms of the landmass, the new region is about the size of Calpheon and houses an elven village known as the Old Wisdom Tree. There is no level requirement for Kamasylvia, but it is a dangerous place to go alone, so being at high level will be beneficial and group play is recommended. There is also new group-based content such as The Altar of Training that will enthuse players who are looking for some co-op action.

The Altar of Training, located deep within Kamasylvia, contains a survival mode which players can unlock once they have completed certain quests in the main storyline. Players will need to work together with their party members to defend a sacred treasure from hordes of enemies that grow stronger with each wave. A total of five waves need to be beaten before the ultimate challenge: a fight with the powerful final boss, Ancient Puturum. If successful, adventurers can gain valuable items and gear.

GUILD WARS 2 ROLLS OUT BRAND-NEW FORUMS, GRANTS AMNESTY TO PAST NE’ER-DO-WELLS

gw2

Guild Wars 2’s forums have just gotten a massive facelift with all the standard bits and bobs you’d want from a forum in 2017: avatars, mobile responsiveness, badges, ranks, bookmarks, private messages, searching, and up- and down-voting, so you too can brigade whatever ArenaNet says!
Anybody can log in with a game account, and since it’s free, that means everyone can read, but you’ll need to have bought into the game to actually post – even if you’ve been banned before. “The forums will be visible to everyone, members and visitors alike,” says the studio. “Everyone with a paid Guild Wars 2 account in good standing can participate on the new forums. A game account holder whose forum privileges were terminated on the old forums will be granted one-time amnesty in order to rejoin the forum community.” Maybe try not to screw it up this time?

The downside is the studio isn’t importing anything but a handful of its own threads, so if there’s anything you need from the old forums, like guides or RP stories, grab ’em soon — they’ll be archived until the end of October before (we’re assuming) being retired to eternal sleep with the likes of Rurik and Scarlet.

STAR TREK ONLINE LAUNCHES SEASON 13.5 FOR CONSOLES

sto

If you play Star Trek Online on consoles, you probably don’t like having to wait for patches while PC players get them faster. But you don’t have to wait any longer to take part in Season 13.5; the patch is out now for console players, so you too can go rescue General Martok with the help of Rodek in the latest featured episode.
What will you do after that? Well, you’ll probably jump into the new Endeavor system, a set of regular challenges to push you into doing content you might have otherwise have eschewed. Or perhaps you’ll jump over to the more familiar Admiralty system and take part in the new Ferengi campaign.

REVELATION ONLINE PREPS LEVEL CAP INCREASE AND RAID FOR SEPTEMBER, ASSASSIN CLASS FOR NOVEMBER

Revelation-online

Don’t assume that just because you’re on top of things in Revelation Online, it’s going to last that way forever. There’s an upheaval planned for next month to shake things up and give high-end players more to do.
September’s UpRising content patch will jack up the level cap to 79 and add in a brand-new raid, the Altar of Swords. The team is promoting this as the first “top-tier raid” that offers both a five- and ten-player mode as well as three difficulty levels.

The raid sounds quite foreboding: “The Altar of Swords seethes with an almost palpable aura of hatred and ordinary mortals find it stifling. According to the legend, the soul of Monethir — founder of the Blademaster School — still roams the Altar of Swords, waiting to pass on his sword techniques to those who prove themselves worthy.”

GUILD WARS 2 DEEP-DIVES PATH OF FIRE’S ELITE SPECS FOR EVERY CLASS

a9dfeGW2-PoF_Texture_Centered_Trans_Small

ArenaNet has a new dev vlog out focusing on the development of Guild Wars 2’s Path of Fire elite specs. Some of the class specs were born from a great name and concept, the studio says, like the Mesmer’s Mirage, whereas others were put together via a systematic review of game mechanics and consideration for what each class is currently lacking, like the Necromancer’s new support skills.
ArenaNet announced that it’ll be announcing even more (heh) about the elite specs throughout the week; expect the team’s livestream on Thursday ahead of the PvP preview weekend this Friday, then mount details on August 28th and story info coming at the beginning of September.

REVELATION ONLINE GETS ITS OWN INFOBASE COURTESY OF A FAN

revelation online

Item databases are always fun and useful for fans of a given MMO, and now Revelation Online has one. The Revelation Online Database doesn’t have a particularly creative name, but it does have a descriptive one, and it does have a useful listing of all of the game’s items in an easily searchable format. And it’s gotten a spotlight on the official site, so that’s all good.

The spotlight also includes a brief interview with the creator and maintainer, Kiriak. He mentions that he plays a Gunslinger at the moment (although in previous games he’s usually gone for sword-wielding characters) and enjoys that he sees Revelation Online as less RNG-oriented than many other games of its type. So it’s a database and a spotlight on the person behind the database.

TROVE REACHES SECOND ANNIVERSARY, GIVES AWAY GOLDEN TICKET CHESTS

Trove

Happy second birthday, Trove! Here, have a slice of cake. It’s somewhat pixelated and the frosting is made out of dirt, but we hear that’s how you like it best. Indeed, back on July 9th, 2015, this odd voxel MMORPG erupted from the mind-womb of Trion Worlds and has actually become somewhat of a sleeper hit in the industry.

And perhaps for the anniversary or perhaps because Trove loves to throw events on days that end with “Y,” the game is giving out a free golden ticket chest as a login reward from now through July 24th, with dragons and a “ludicrous” number of mounts as potential prizes.

Trove has also activated two weeks of pretty much every bonus event in the game, including double XP and more harvesting. “Two weeks of daily bonuses sounds too good to be true — but this is the truest truth to ever true,” the team said.
