The Secret World introduces hoverboards and lucky coins

    
28

Recently, Lead Designer Romain Amiel went to the forums to explain The Secret World’s new currency and gift bag in more detail, but it was today’s teaser tweet that stole the spotlight: hoverboards! Long-hinted at, this upcoming sprint customization has now been visually confirmed via video clip, which you can watch below.

As for the new currency, Amiel explained that the new lucky bags and coins were developed in response to players requesting permanent versions of event gift bags and their coveted social goodies. Lucky coins are like the other special event coins (that players still have, but that are hidden until said event shows up again), not the various system-centric currencies that were recently revamped. Amiel called this new currency “more of a item store ‘loyalty program’ that we can sometimes give away during certain event or promotions.” Players can use these coins to purchase the rarest items directly from Mr. Knickknack, a baubles vendor located in the Darkside of London. As a bonus, all items in these bags can also now be traded until used.

Nordavind dorn2 I’m talking DnD style arcane evocation basically.  Magic missile, animated swords, chromatic sphere, etc, etc.
I’m aware some people would call celtic fairy tales “traditional” but I meant the more modern “traditional” that you get from western CRPGs.  Most of which are sort of loosely based on DND. 
There’s nothing wrong with the other magic.  I just don’t understand why there isn’t an extra weapon/tree dedicated to this sort of stuff.

ZenDadaist solipsis Which Back to the Future Part II predate both, and Jetsons had one in the original TV series (though it was model more after surfboards than a skate board).

Pff. The hoverboard should be pink with a Mattel logo.

Bluetouchpaper Actually considering Orochi at launch, I was almost surprised there wasn’t any hoverboards until now. They have hovering-everything else already, especially drones. But continue on…

As much as I like hover boards they just don’t fit in TSW its just another sign of the game being watered down that started with EPE . Shame really it used to be such a good game . Still I doubt it will be around much longer given Funcom appears that it will go belly up sometime in the next couple of years .
