The Secret World adds mini-dungeon, achievement vendor

    
21

On top of the big news about mounts, The Secret World is adding two other features in next week’s update. In a recent post, Lead Designer Romain Amiel announced a new mini-dungeon based on the penthouse in the Orochi Tower. This Nightmare group version of the final three fights in the penthouse will be extremely challenging and offer players unique rewards to help prepare for Issue #12’s dungeon. And for everyone who has been dying to learn more about Uta, the mini-dungeon will provide more information that can actually be traded to others who don’t run it.

The second feature is a new vendor in London stocked with exclusive rewards based on players’ current total achievement points. Additionally, this vendor will allow players to reclaim consumable rewards that were earned via achievements, such as the Blade of Inaba mould. While the dungeon is available only to those who have purchased Issue #11, the vendor will do business with all players.

Stay tuned for this afternoon’s Chaos Theory for a deeper look at the announcement and a chat with the devs.

Update announcement. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

BrotherMaynard mbbrazen Greaterdivinity Oh my, I cannot take that rain….but I do love bundling up in a winter coat, boots and a hat and crunching through the snow in CF. Maybe if they would make a shiny yellow rain hat and coat with matching galoshes…then maybe I could hang out in BF.

mbbrazen Greaterdivinity For me out of the three Romanian zones, it would have to be BF. I know there’s constant rain and fog and it’s a bit gloomy, but that’s precisely the special charm of that place, the atmosphere is just perfect! A rainy late autumn evening in a sparsely populated village at the end of the world, hidden in the mountains. When evening comes, I could just stand there and watch…

ogged451 Well, considering I’ve owned it since it went B2P and I’m only in the second zone in Egypt, I’ve got the “take your time” bit covered : 3

Greaterdivinity There are some great missions in Transylvania. The weather isn’t good in Besieged Farmlands, but get a rain coat and go forward. And now that the mobs in the main game have been nerfed, it should be easier to deal with the vamps. Of the three zones, Carpathian Fangs was my favorite, and of course Issue 7 (which is just spooky and fabulous) takes place in Trans. There’s plenty of fun  and interesting things to do before Tokyo.
I very much enjoyed the Tokyo finale. It left me with more questions then it answered but that is the sweetness of TSW. Still, you want to experience the whole game before you jump to Tokyo.

Greaterdivinity take your time. Savour the story which is great up to, but not including, the Tokyo “finale”.
My best hope is issue #12 opening with a cut scene showing Bobby Ewing stepping out of the shower, saying “Hiya Chuck, wakey, wakey, you’re still outside the tower.”

The last time we were promised a challenge, we got 250 square meters full of /faceroll “nightmare” mobs !
