Gaiscioch Community Notes Issue 9, 2019


Cead Mile Failte!

Hang onto your shorts people, this fall is going to be a wild ride! We've got a lot of fun times planned and with the release lineup for the fall, there will be no shortage of things to do. We've got the next DLC from ESO titled Dragonhold on its way.  The launch of Guild Wars 2 Living World Season 5 is upon us. Both Astellia and World of Warcraft Classic launch in the next month. It looks like Rune 2 is coming in 2019 rather than 2020 like expected. Both Lord of the Rings Online and Conqueror's Blade have a wealth of activities going on every week. Lastly, we have our Extra Life Charity Livestream event titled #ExtraLife coming up this fall.  It's safe to say there is no shortage of things to do.

Astellia Launches on September 27th

A small merry band of Gaiscioch are going to be launching into Astellia on September 27th. It will be a few days before we can get the Guild open but it will be our first priority. Astellia features a massive world to explore free of forced PvP. Collect Astels to join you in fights. Upon reaching level 40 you will be able to begin joining in the 3 realm war over Avalon, a PvP zone where 3 factions fight over crystals and key locations. With each player being able to spawn multiple Astels these battles can be quite massive in size.

Astellia is a Buy-2-Play MMORPG that plays to the western audience perfectly. I highly recommend giving it a  try. It is not your typical eastern game.

Extra Life 2019

We've got just under 2 months to go in our Extra Life 2019 campaign to raise $5,000 for the Children's Miracle Network. To help fundraise we'll be holding a 3-day event, giving away dozens of free games. All you need to do to win is attend one of the events or tune in live on Midway through each session, we'll give away a 6 digit code that you will use on the Gaiscioch ForTheKids Website. 

Don't miss this opportunity yo help give a child a second chance at making epic adventures of their own.

Inside the Family

Gaiscioch Family Patreons:

Want to give a special shout-out to those members who are helping enable our community to do great things. Their financial support has allowed us to expand the tools at our disposal and maintain the community without burning a hole in my personal savings. While a still do pay a bit out of pocket their contributions have prevented me from having to work side gigs to keep us afloat and for that, I am eternally grateful. It's at a manageable level I am comfortable with. Without these Patreons, you'd be seeing a lot less of me. Thank you for keeping me in-game and focused on growing our community.

Conqueror's Blade Adventure Established a Foothold on the Map

It's been a wild month in Conqueror's Blade. We met our goal of owning territory within 3 months and have 6 of us over level 100 now. We're growing in strength every week and are gaining many new active members who are taking the time to become part of the community. It's been a slow journey but in the end, it's paying off.

We managed to become the owner of 4 fiefs this month after 2 were offered to us by Tiffany and the Tempest Wolves. The 3rd was given to us by RespecT as a sign of friendship between our two houses. Our final fief we managed to take as it was bordering our feline allies.  We are now nested up in the northwest corner of Ungverija behind a wall in the North. The largest alliance in the SW controls the gate between us and any attackers that would be coming for us. Fortunately for us, we have a non-aggression pact with them and see each other as allies. Our fiefs have a Blue Tree node and a Purple Food node that we can harvest from. Our newest fief serves as a base camp in the middle of a massive spawn zone of rebel camps.

Our primary focus right now is upgrading and maintaining our Fiefs. We've put together a list of all the Fief quests from the 4 fiefs so that we can calculate which ones we can fulfill for the best reward. You can only complete 20 fief quests per week so it's important that we take on the ones that offer the most resources. This is a tremendous source of Honor which allows you to unlock and upgrade your troops.

Lastly, I'd like to ask everyone to create at least 1 alternate character that they can join House Gaiscioch with. I'm trying to get the population up a bit on the house to become more attractive to new players. I want to keep it 75-80% full at all times. As we get new players in I will rotate out the alts. If anyone is willing to help me out with this I'd greatly appreciate it. Nobody wants to join and empty house. This will stimulate growth.

Lord of the Rings Online

Our crew in Lord of the Rings Online continues to drive forward. We have a wealth of players who are now working their way through the end game and a few of us who are creeping our way through the middle game. We've got 3 scheduled events every week that you can join in. We also are seeing a bunch of sporadic popup events happening on the fly each week. If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings I highly recommend giving this Free-2-Play title a try.

Rune 2 set to Launch in 2019

Rune 2's development has been quite eventful. It's undergone a complete rebuild and a refocusing as they decided to move away from creating "Another Survival Game" and decided to create a "Cooperative Story-Driven Experience". The final version of Rune 2 is aiming for release sometime this year. They plan to announce the launch date by the end of August.
