The Stream Team: Cavorting through The Secret World’s The Cost of Magic mission

    
16

You asked for it, and now you’re going to get it: MassivelyOP’s MJ is tackling The Cost of Magic sabotage mission in The Secret World.  Of course, before the spied-upon spy Zaha will even give her the task she has to do a different one, so there will be plenty of action and vampire shooting before the sneaking. Tune in live at 9:00 p.m. to count crispy vampire corpses and see how well MJ dances around the landmines.

What: The Secret World
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 9:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, August 6th, 2015

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

z13 I’m terrified to go back and try Bank Heist again…I may just need to write that one off.  I eventually even resorted to looking up how other people did it….and I still couldn’t get through it!

MJ Guthrie tanek_09 BalsBigBrother Yeah, I  tried a couple of the jumps to get a feel for it and already a few times just ran straight into the water when I hit the spacebar.

tanek_09 BalsBigBrother Now you see why we held off? It’s even better when game glitches and doesn’t even jump you when you jump! hehe

BalsBigBrother tanek_09 These are the kinds of challenges I like in games.  I know some players would think I’m crazy (and I’m not claiming they are entirely wrong), but learning the path bit by bit and making progress with each try is fun, especially when it does not involve combat.
The next part of the mission looks like it will be a bit more frustrating since TSW is not ever going to be known for its precision jumping mechanics.  It might end up being more luck than learning to get the achievement there.

tanek_09 congratulations o/  It is a pretty frustrating chain of quests to complete especially when you are not that good at the whole jumping platform stuff but quite satisfying once you do finally beat them :-)

ZenDadaist It would be nice if you could choose to use previous levels of sprint after you get Sprint VI.

Hrm, since the Sprint V and VI upgrades I imagine this will properly bugger up the previously simple platform jumping trick. All but 1 of the platform jumps can be done with 3 completely identical button presses and the trick was realising this and then being able to pull it off for each jump.

I tried to get to the elder vampire blood again this morning.  Got to it on the first try, but had hit one landmine on the way.  I jumped down to try it again and now have that part done with the achievement intact.  I am sure the mission will have worse things to throw at us next, but for now I am going to feel like I won.  :)

Everything was fine and dandy in The Cost of Magic until that damned jumping puzzle. I finally completed it after trying for a few hours, giving up and coming back another day. Now the only mission I have left are the Bank Heist and the lair missions.

Great stream!  I remember spending every evening for a week working on this one mission, back when the area mobs were nightmare.  Completing it felt similar to beating Dark Souls…  (ok, so I’m a wimp)
