Ahh it’s fantastic to be back in The Secret World. So many updates, so many issues that I need to catch up with, but most important among all is that TSW is now B2P! Not that it affects me much since I’m a lifer. I’m loving the free points and the fact that I can still buy future issues that’s within the allocated budget. Even after the layoffs last year, the Devs are no slacks. I watched and read as content are introduced in the designated timeframe.
I came back for the Halloween event. Brief period, but man was it awesome. Definitely looking forward to more events in TSW, I think it was done fantastically. Missed the recent ARG event but again it looked great. I’m digging how TSW keeps players glued to the game even without having to log in. More of the same please!
So what have I been up to? After a long client update, I figured I’d go get my first auxiliary weapon, the rocket launcher (Yes, that’s how long I’ve been away), and man was it tough! The mission itself was pretty cool, but mob density was insane and if you don’t have a solid and balanced build, you’re going to die a lot out there and that’s exactly what I went through. But of course, there was a solution and it was easy in the end. See, just before I left in August 2012, I was experimenting with a hardcore DPS build with AR/Ele as my main weapons and I died a lot in that AUX mission. So I reverted back to my Shotgun/Hammer build and man it was a breeze, with a mix of blue DPS and Tankish Talismans equipped. This build never fails me, ever. Check it out!
So after getting the rocket launcher, it hit me that I need SO MUCH AP/SP to get it going, so I decided to leave it hanging in the bag for now. Snooped around the Store and bought myself a pet, which in my opinion, a mini Cthulhu pet is the most awesome pet out there in any MMO to date!
Inventory is a mess at the moment and I’ll need to get that sorted out. But the current priority now is to complete missions that I missed in the earlier regions, before I start tackling new missions from Issue #1-5. Finally, applied to a new Cabal. It saddens me that Bloodpact is no longer active, having started out promisingly at launch. Hopefully, I’ll see many of them in game soon, but I need to move on to an active Cabal in the meantime. So that’s about it, hoping to get active in TSW again. Cheers to all.
The Secret War has ended. In my opinion, every society emerged victorious. However, the fun doesn’t stop there. A new mission has begun! Head on over to The Secret World to find out more.
A Beta Weekend #3 has not been announced by Funcom this week, so it looks like there will be no beta access this weekend.
Congratulations to all Blue agents involved, this is a significant victory. To those who wasn’t seen the video, head on to The Secret War, if you’re Illuminati. Good luck deciphering the code!
