Secret World Legends teases its first Halloween event since the reboot

With the Orochi Tower live and the final part of the Tokyo region out the door, Funcom is already peeking ahead to the future of Secret World Legends. Like the rest of the game, that future is… spooky. Expect it to look a lot like The Secret World’s past Halloween events.

“Halloween is approaching! SWL’s first Halloween event begins Wednesday, the 18th. You can expect a couple seasonal missions and a public raid encounter in Agartha. You’ll also get extra login rewards just for playing during the event. For those of you wondering about seasonal cosmetic items we’ve had from past years in TSW, a bunch of them should be available as potential rewards and purchases this year in SWL.”

Funcom’s also noted it’s closely monitoring healers and tanks in solo modes along with weapon perfomance (especially Elementalism); Museum teleports are on the way as well, in addition to fixes for keybinding, inaccessible Tokyo Legends, hotbar issues, and Tokyo lair mobs.

Yeah Free!
I play with so many TSW vets and they always have such cool stuff from playing TSW, for me i’m new as TSW never clicked for me, at all.
At times i’m like i wish i’d invested more into TSW, but everything is new for me all the time which is pretty freaking awesome.
It’s all good, vets are more than happy with the new version, and i totally agree. I still can’t stop playing. Got my wings with some peeps from the Cabal, steam rolled the tower, i like to jump, i don’t like to jump.

Ok did they dump that damn aegis crap from Japan? That completely killed japan for me and I never finished it for me with secret world. Which kind of sucked it looks like the story was bizarre as hell and interesting.

AEGIS isn’t in the game now except as a particular mission mechanic (late in the zone).

So is this the same Samhain event that they did in TSW? Btw Geist Rider looks pretty damn cool.

We’ll have to wait and see how many events from past years gets recycled this time. I think the Rider stuff is out “because worldbosses”. No idea about Spooky Stories & Seven Silences.

I’m actually feeling kind of blue about this one. It was my go-to game up through the end of Transylvania. Since arriving in Tokyo, however, my interest has waned considerably, despite one or two excellent quests (like the uber creepy ghost girls) . I don’t know, maybe I’m getting tired of the ‘filth’, maybe I’m starting to feel the difficulty level ramp up ( I admit I’ve been a bit lax on my upgrades of late), and of course there has been the major distraction of GW2 Paths of Fire. In any event I’ve put my Patron status on hold and will hopefully come back to it when I’m in the mood.

As an aside, I love how since there’s no sub in GW2 or STO, I can leave them for weeks or months at a time totally guilt-free.

Huh. Shows how much I was paying attention.

I’ve been playing and these Halloween chests have been dropping and I thought that was the event already.

Now to wonder if we’ll get a new, awesome event to celebrate SWL’s launch (or at least the complete version of a prior event)…or if we get a stripped down version of a prior event a la the flappy bird event.

Really hoping for the former, I always dug their Samhain events and it’s a great time to showcase new players the kind of awesome shit they can expect from the Halloween events.

The Samhain 2017 cheevos list are already in game. They relate to the Cat God chain, and fighting Jack in Agartha. There ya go.
