MJ Guthrie

Community Manager

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively Overpowered adventures can be found many places: She investigates Secret World Legends/The Secret World's conspiracies in Chaos Theory, chronicles the EverQuest franchise in EverQuesting, practices survival in many sandboxes with The Survivalist, and livestreams for the Stream Team.

The stream Team: Grabbing more ARK glow pets

There was a massive slaughter in ARK when a rock drake dropped into an unfinished base, so Massively OP’s MJ is out to replenish the glow pet stocks. That means a dive back into the glowtail cave. Perhaps there will be a trip into radiation for some featherlights and a few bulbdog births as well. Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. for just another day in…

The Stream Team: Scouting out future Conan Exiles tames

Massively OP’s MJ was so excited to hear that taming was finally coming to Conan Exiles! While not knowing what creatures may be tameable, that still means that MJ will have to make some decisions on which ones. And we know how slow she is at decisions! Pet crocodile, pet ape, pet mammoth — all sound great! So she’s going to head in and just scope out the wildlife to try and whittle her choices down (while said wildlife will likely try to whittle her down). Join us live at 9:00 p.m. to talk taming.

The Stream Team: Basement dwelling in a Secret World Legends’ mansion

Massively OP’s MJ finally made it into the mansion… sort of. She’s in the basement. Which means she’s closer to unraveling the mystery of the Morninglight in Secret World Legends.

The Survivalist: Eight ways to give Just Survive a fighting chance

Do you remember at the beginning of May when Just Survive was talking about “working on a plan to go forward”? I understand if you don’t: It almost seems as if Daybreak itself has forgotten about the game, so how can it expect players to remember. Well, with H1Z1 doing so well on the PlayStation 4, maybe — just maybe — the game that actually birthed the battle royale version (that it lost its name to) will get some love. We can dream! And while we dream, we can also help the studio out with its plan-making endeavors. And boy, do I think it needs some help! As it is, the next promised patch sound like little more than maintenance mode and doesn’t really dispel the rumor that the game is on the sunset path. In order to survive, Just Survive needs to step up and offer a bit more than that. So here are eight ways Daybreak can give this survival game a fighting chance.

EverQuesting: Seven must-dos with your free EverQuest II level 100

We are smack-dab in the middle of the free level 100 giveaway in EverQuest II for all existing accounts. If you haven’t made your character yet (perhaps you are having trouble choosing between all the races and classes EQII has to offer), you have until Thursday, June 7th, 2018, to do it. And make it I would! Don’t miss out on this opportunity: Now is your chance to see and do things you may never have before, especially if you’ve you’ve been away from the game a long time and/or have never had this high of a level before. This is even a good opportunity for current players who don’t own the latest Planes of Prophecy expansion thanks to the sneak peek period.

OK, so now that you are making one, what can you do with a newly minted level 100? Sure, it may not be the best idea to immediately take it into a max-level raid; you might want to get a good feel for what the skills and abilities are first before some hard-core play. But there are a number of activities that are perfect for your fresh-from-character-creation fighter/healer/scout/mage. Here are seven must-dos to experience while you have the chance!
