DevStream – 2017-1117

Chill and laid back stream today.  No major news.  Just Andy-Zilla getting blasted by his own grenades in the Seoul Fight Club.

Dev-Stream is available here.


Today we had TronQuiote join Andy McMan-bun and Dyno-Saur Nicole (I know it’s Spynosaur..!) as we had random Hyjinx in th Seoul Fight Club, and Nicole used Microsoft paint to show why she isn’t on the art team!


PLAYER 4 HAS ENTERED THE ARENA:

Customer Service Manager, Chris Tatem also joined for a few minutes at the beginning to let everyone know that after having some short shifts due to the Plague, his team seems to be catching up once again.  If you have any lingering issues, please feel free to let him know how terrible he is on the FunCom Discord.


ELEMENTALISM ADJUSTMENTS:

Elementalism just had some changes happen to it, and they are aware there are some issues persisting, but they are going to wait and watch for a while longer before they decide on further adjustments.  So keep playing it, and give them your feedback.


FALL SALE:

The Fall Sale is going on until the 27th!  Make sure you check out what’s on sale and Buy Aurum, and Buy Stuff!


Andy has been a Community Manager for 2 years now! Congratulations!


Paricipants of today’s ‘Lair of the Sky Cowboy’ (Andy-Zilla Fight Club Boss) received Dev-Killer T-shirts! (Meanwhile, I was stuck at work…. *sigh*)


WAIT..!  SOMETHING USEFUL TODAY?!?!

Winter Cache is being worked on currently and we were given a preview of the new Sword Skin and Outfits!

Winter Cache Preview!

I want to know if the facemask thing will be able to be equipped separately..?


And that’s about it.  I’ll close this out with Nicole’s MS Paint Art.

It’s a Smiler-Potato-Mech!
Beware the dreaded UR-POTATO!
Doggo of the Zero-Point Potato!
Potato-Demon Romance Theater with Special Guest Star, Mei Ling!
Potato-Stream-Team!
“Mr Demille….? I’m ready for my closeup!”

And that’s it!  Like i said, no major news items to worry about.  Just them being the CM-Dorks™ we all love and hold dear! <3

Thank you for stopping by!  And as always, I hope to see you in the Secret World!

Whispering Tide Advent Calendar

The Whispering Tide event is underway,  and during this event,  there are Event Rewards for Logging in and Defeating the Filthy Threat in Agartha!

Each Day you log in, you’ll get this window asking you to Claim a Relic.  As you can see, you also get nifty other things to help you level yourself and your gear!  NOTE: THIS REWARD IS ONLY ABLE TO BE CLAIMED ONCE PER DAY PER ACCOUNT!  (More on this later.) So make sure you claim it on the character you think is going to need this the most!

So what kind of items do you get in this Relic?  Vanity items, typically.  At least that’s what’s being touted you can get.  What I want to do with this post is track the items I get, so you all can see and compare.  I will not be tracking the Drops from Flappy here, but I may set that aside for a later post.  Nor will I track the items shown behind each relic… those are set in stone, so to speak.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE INDIVIDUAL RESULTS WILL VARY FROM PLAYER TO PLAYER AND DAY TO DAY!  So I may get something one day and you’ll get something else entirely.  What I don’t know is if there is a set amount of items you can get and if you claim all 14 relics you will get all of them, or if there is even more RNG involved to be able to complete certain sets.

I plan on Updating this on a Daily Basis, so make sure you come back to check it out often!


UPDATE 2.0:

OK – I had questions today and in the process of getting them answered, the process was explained to me for the Event reward bags.  There is a Master List and the system for each character.  Does this character have the first set of item?   No?  BOOM!  They do now!  Or,  if they already have them already, then the system check the next set of rewards and follows the same logic.  The list isn’t very Alt Friendly for getting the Armor set though, as only the Boots/Gloves have been issued so far and I’ve got the Day 3 Reward Already. (Since I had the Day 1 reward from TSW.)

At the end of the rotation, instead of getting any NEW shiny items, we will get Anima Shards.  I have 4 of the 5 original set items, so I’ll end up getting to the End sooner than most.  But I’ll make sure I update along the way!


UPDATE 3.0

Sooo… Andy decides to leak info in Discord… Here’s the total list in order of award:  I’ll try to add pics of each item as I can best figure it out.

Almost as bad as the White House!

I will make a Post-Mortem on this event after it’s over so I can give a full review of how I think this event was handled.  But that is a post for another day.

Anyway, without further Adieu, the List!


DAY 1 – August 1st

Carapace of the Immaculate Machine Gauntlets – Original Color
Carapace of the Immaculate Machine Boots- Original Color

DAY 2 – August 2nd

 

Military Gas Mask – Green
Night Vision Goggles – Green

Day 3 – August 3rd

Glowing Eyes – Purple
TITLE – Scout of Gaia

Day 4 – August 4th

 

 

The original award from TSW was the Black version,  but this time I got the Green set, which didn’t even appear in my Dressing Room as an option till I got them.

Turtleneck Shirt – Black

I did not get a second item, bit probably because I already had this one from the original in TSW.

 


DAY 5 – August 5th

Carapace of the Immaculate Machine – Leggings – Original Colors
Carapace of the Immaculate Machine – Chest – Original Colors

Day 6 – August 6th

Combat Boots – Green Camo
Padded Military Gloves – Green

 

(UPDATE: These will not show in your Inventory until you get the right Tier of the achievement. I am wondering if anyone that didn’t have the Black versions from TSW got the Black versions, or the Green version?  Leave a comment or poke at me on twitter if you find out!)


Day 7 – August 7th

Military Jacket with Gear – Green Camo
Military Helmet – Green Camo

(UPDATE:  Again, these don’t even show up as options unit they are awarded.)


Day 8 – August 8th

‘The Protector of Agartha’ Title
‘Vitalizing Stride ‘Sprint


Day 9 – August 9th

Carapace of the Immaculate Machine – Helmet – Original Colors

Day 10 – August 10th

Runic Automaton

Days 11 – 15th – August 11 through 15

Anima Shards.  Quantity Unknown.

Keep in mind this day may come sooner than shown here as some people have parts of the Armor set already so they will skip ahead to the next Reward until they get everything.

I guess the cat is out of the bag now!  Plan accordingly!  And let me know what you are looking forward to the most? (I want the original Helm, finally!)

Thanks for coming by and as usual, I hope to see you in the Secret World!
