The Stream Team: Investigating Khalid’s unburnt bush in Secret World Legends

Secret World Legends shows off its new Agent system in brief

If you’re eagerly awaiting new missions to run in Secret World Legends, you’re going to have to keep waiting a bit longer. But you do have new content coming with the addition of the Agent system, which allows you to fill the role of being a recruiter and questgiver for your chosen faction. There’s a preview video down below, and there are even more details of the system available thanks to the SWL RP fansite.

In short, players will be able to recruit specific individuals to serve as agents, with some agents available for Aurum as an optional purchase (all are supposedly available from in-game methods as well). You then buy gear for your agents, send them out on missions, and reap the benefits accordingly. Check out the video down below, or check out the rundown if you can’t wait to break up the idleness of shooting supernatural beasties by playing middle management.

The Stream Team: Sunshine and Scorched Desert adventures in Secret World Legends

Chaos Theory: Do you need to sub to enjoy Secret World Legends?

A question I am asked quite a bit about free-to-play games is whether or not one needs to sub to really play. It is a fair question: We’ve got enough examples in the industry where not subbing can cripple you to the point that it is less than no fun and not worth even trying to play. So how about Secret World Legends? You’ve heard how great that story is and your interest is piqued, but you’ve been burned before. Do you need to pay for patron status to have a worthwhile experience playing? No. And yes.

The answer actually depends on what you want from the game and your preferred style of play. Can you play SWL and have a blast immersed in the amazing atmosphere and story without paying a dime? Absolutely! To get the most out of the game if you play more hardcore, however, you definitely want to become a patron.

Secret World Legends posts a quick teaser of the agent system

One of the first new Secret World Legends systems is coming soon, and Funcom posted a quick video of it this week to whet players’ appetites.

In a minute-and-a-half, CM Andy Benditt walked players through the basics of the upcoming agent system. This system works much like World of Warcraft’s order hall missions, Star Trek Online’s duty officer system, and RIFT’s minions. The idea is that players will recruit and collect support agents that can be equipped for their passive ability bonuses (three max) and sent out on timed missions with the hopes of bringing back rewards. The strategy here is to match up an agent’s traits with the mission requirements in question in order to increase the chance of success.

Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!

The Stream Team: Enjoying more Egypt in Secret World Legends

Massively OP’s MJ can ignore the snow outside as she basks in the sunshine of Egypt in Secret World Legends. (Never mind that she dislikes sunshine and actually loves the snow!) She’s off to finish up more adventures and clear out the missions and bosses of the Scorched Desert zone so she can move on. Join us live at 9:00 p.m. to leave winter behind and frolic in the sand with her.

Massively Overthinking: What are your criteria for recommending MMOs?

Last week, we got a well-intentioned email from a reader named Rick, who proposed a column in which readers tell us what they are looking for in an MMO and we offer up suggestions for just the right MMO. It’d be like Guild Chat, we imagine, only instead of dispensing guild advice, we’d be telling you folks what to play.

The email prompted some discussion among the MOP staff about whether that would be an effective column to write (or to read). We do answer some questions like that for the podcast from time to time, for example, but I seldom get the impression we’ve actually helped. Most times, the listener has already tried everything and is hoping for a game that simply doesn’t exist yet, so we’re destined to fail. And even then, it’s really difficult to recommend MMOs to people without really knowing their full history with every studio and game. Some of us can’t even find an MMO we want to play!

So we thought we’d open that discussion up for everyone. How do you go about recommending MMOs to other people? What are your criteria? When your sister says she’s done with WoW, your co-worker requests input around the watercooler one day, or Some Dude On Reddit asks for pointers – where do you start?

EverQuesting: EverQuest II is a packrat’s paradise

While some consider the acquisition of stuff to be distracting to gameplay, others of us know that it is actually a vital part of of the experience. Everyone needs a friend who is a go-to for whatever you need, their bags bursting with everything you can imagine, from obscure stuff collected forever ago to bushels of crafting materials. And I am that friend.

Hi, I’m MJ — I am a packrat, and I am proud of it!

And with all the talk lately about hoarding, I’ve come to better appreciate just how nearly perfect EverQuest II is for someone like me. EQII is truly a packrat’s paradise! Here, you are free to stock up on all the essentials (and you can decide what is essential) and non-essentials alike. And all this without having to resort to any microtransactions! Sure, there are a couple things that would make it even better, but I hold this MMORPG up as a model of item management. If only more games aspired to this.

Age of Conan rolls out brand-new forums, with Secret World Legends and Anarchy Online to follow

It’s been a big week for the supposedly-in-maintenance-mode Age of Conan: First it got a new time-limited progression server, then it lowered its sub fees and loyalty rewards for subbers, and now it’s gotten new forums.

“With the new start of the Saga Server we also want new beginnings of fresh and modern forums; it will seem pretty different from what you’re used to here, but these new forums offer a much better community experience. You’re able to keep better track of threads you are interested in and follow, personalize your profile, give feedback to comments, and have easy access to news and updates. It also includes a trust system; the more active or helpful you are in the community, the higher your trust level increases, allowing you access to more features.”

Worth noting is that old comments have not been ported over, but the old forum is still open until February 14th, at which point posts there will be archived (but still viewable).

Funcom announces new forums coming for all of its titles — including Secret World Legends

Sometimes you really want to stick around to the very end of developer livestreams for any surprise announcements. In Friday’s dev stream, Funcom shocked and probably pleased many fans with the announcement of brand-new forum software for all of its titles.

“Moving forward, we’re going to be launching new forums for all of our games,” the studio said. “We’re going to be using the Discourse platform. All of our games will eventually be under this system, so we’re unifying all of our games under one single umbrella.”

Age of Conan should see the new forum software very soon — if not already — with other titles to follow. And yes, Funcom specifically confirmed that this announcement includes Secret World Legends and Conan Exiles.

The lack of official forums has been a particular sticking point with the Secret World Legends community, which has been forced to scrounge around on Twitch, Reddit, Twitter, and the occasionally updated website for official information and discussion.

The Stream Team: Dungeon diving in Secret World Legends

Although Massively OP’s MJ has never gotten close to needing extra keys beyond her daily allotment in Secret World Legends, she’s still going to take advantage of the key-free weekend to dive into some dungeons and scenarios.

It’s a key-free weekend in Secret World Legends’ dungeons

Players who like to run dungeons, lairs, and scenarios for loot in Secret World Legends can do so with reckless abandon this weekend — and it won’t cost them a single key. From Thursday, January 25th through Sunday, January 28th, all of the boss loot chests in these instances (and areas for lairs) will be completely free to open. It won’t matter if you open 10 or 110 or more. Now is definitely the time to farm for and hoard that loot! After Sunday, however, regular key mechanics return with each chest requiring a key that is either grated daily as patron benefits or bought with Marks of Favour. Note: The free key weekend does not include the various loot caches dropped by killing mobs throughout the game.
