The Secret World kicks off a powerful weekend early

    
20
No one weekend should have all that power.

The Secret World is kicking off a weekend of power early. What makes this weekend worthy of the nickname of “Power Weekend,” exactly? Just the fact that every single thing you do over the weekend in the game results in more. Did you earn a piece of black bullion? You get one more. Earned Marks of Venice? You get 50% more. Recruit a new player into the game? You get another player automatically!

All right, no, you just get a month of free subscription time for that last one. It’s still more stuff for doing what you’d normally do.

You’ll also earn 50% more AEGIS research, making this the perfect weekend to go to town in Tokyo. Just make sure you get in as much as you can before Monday, as the event ends on April 20th.

(My Dragon is a handful of Shotgun abilities away from the Panoptic Core, even though I deliberately avoided playing her in the Golden Week. And I’m one who comes and goes as the mood takes me too.)

CrowingOne Flimflamberge Greaterdivinity Some of us “vets” can’t do nightmare dungeons for BB even though we have 275 abilities bought.  To be fair I don’t play enough to be worth trying to get into a cabal.  Are there even cabals that care about ultra-casual folk like me that might play for a week or two and then disappear without a word for a month or more?

CrowingOne Nordavind I may just have gotten a new user title.  “Avian Terror” indeed!

CrowingOne brelic I would agree with best community.  Though the game itself may seem sparse, that is by design (with not having a bajillion people in an instance).  The world has changed, and the Filth is everywhere.

COOL! Currencies. I still don’t know what any of them do, so that isn’t much incentive to play.

Yeah, I know about #Noobmares. The problem is all my own severe anxiety. :

Flimflamberge CrowingOne yeah I have watched some of the dungeon runs on massively and other streams, scared the hell out of me in the sense that I guess i would be the one screwing them up.  Seems they have a lot to keep an eye on and my flakey Internet’s would do me no favours in those places so I stayed away from them too

CrowingOne Gonna look you up this weekend for this Crow.  I’m mostly 10.1, but so irregular with TSW haven’t done nearly enough of the dungeons.  Character name is Rattus if you see me send a tell

Personally, I might use this to get started on Tokyo with my Templar, but I still haven’t gotten around to figuring out her build for it yet. But I don’t PvP and I’m scared of dungeons, so there’s not much else for me.

The Golden Week they just had is what you want. There’ll be more of those in the future, when they feel like it.
But yeah, this is clearly aimed at giving a leg-up to players new to endgame. Like the players who returned for the EPE or picked up the game new with the recent deals, and then used the Golden Week to rocket themselves through the game.
