Secret World Legends’ Samhain events are here, at least one year of them

So, Secret World peeps. I’ve got some good Halloween news and some bad. The good news is that Samhain is live in Secret World Legends today.

“Boundaries between realms blur and intersect during Halloween, allowing otherworldly forces to more easily cross over–including into the Hollow Earth itself! The insidious Jack of the Lantern has set his sights on the heart of the world tree, thirsting for its Anima and to claim its power as his own. Not without its defense mechanisms, Agartha has isolated the threat and now it’s up to you to rally together and take Jack head-on.”

The bad news is that it looks as if only the first year of Halloween content is represented in the patch. Massively OP’s MJ points out the other years of content from when the game was still The Secret World aren’t mentioned in the patch notes.

Oh wait, there’s more good news! Everybody’s getting a freebie Geist Rider motorcycle mount. Worth it! Just log in to claim yours. On subsequent days, you’ll be picking up additional themed rewards.

To note: You can get almost everything from the event, directly through gameplay. This is GOOD. Whether its the logins (albeit to one character), the boxes from logins, the drops from Jack, the completion of Halloween missions in general, the drops from the Cat God, or achievements, its all available to free players. And for the Spooky Lockbox, all of the spidery cosmetics are available for 10ks of Marks (aka days to weeks of playing). Exception goes to the particular exclusively Aurum items (emotes, pets, clothing, sprints), but these are a *minority* and still technically available through Exchange.

I don’t love it, but I have to admit I’m getting a ton of fluff for free (as a player who didn’t play TSW Halloween) in the first couple days, and that is cool. I may be happy enough with what I’ve been getting, that I spend some Aurum to finish up the collection. Which is how it should be.

Yea it’s a cool little event, just right. I hate when mmo’s make it so overwhelming that you spend a month or more purely focused on the event, here do a few things everyday and get back to playing the game.

Never known an mmo take so long to load as TSL does at the moment . It’s loading times have always been slower than other mmos but it’s taking 10-15 minutes to get into the game to do the hourly event raid then half the time the game crashes when I am entering it .

Have cancelled my subscription after this as I have decided it’s not a game I want to spend most of my time in . I’ll just do the updated free content when it comes out but not putting any money into it from now on .

Kind of disappointing that it’s only the first year’s Samhain content. But I still have to give props for the excellent trailer.

Yep, no Spooky Stories, no Seven Silences, no The Rider Cometh. And you cannot chain run the Cat God dungeon anymore. Boooooooooo I say.

Chain run Cat God? No, sorta, but yes, sorta. I stand by the portal in my zone instance and wait for another to open the portal, and I can enter. Did it a few times today and got more cat pets.

Well, any Secret World Halloween is better than no Secret World Halloween.

The Jack raid seems quicker and easier than Whispering Tide’s Flappy raid, and has some nice seasonal scenery!

Those doing the Hallowe’en missions should be careful about following old guides, as they’ve changed the location of some items to make them more accessible to players who haven’t reached Egypt or Transylvania yet ;)

They removed one earlier step from the Meowing that was unncessary (it takes you to the graveyard), especially since there’s still a seasonal Legend/Lore there (move it Funcom!).

The “scenery” is not just there for the looks ….
