Secret World Legends celebrates Samhain with free gifts and raids

    
13

Is there any better appropriate setting to enjoy Halloween festivities than Secret World Legends? Particularly considering that the first zone in the game is perpetually stuck in late October as the zombies and draug there go trick-or-treating (for brain candy).

Funcom hopes that you might like to come back to the MMO for some Samhain fun, as the Halloween event is running from now through November 10th. The studio is handing out free daily login rewards while also activating the seasonal Jack of the Lantern 40-player raid.

“Every hour, a portal near the center of Agartha opens, leading you and fellow agents deep in the tree’s branches where Jack has been captured,” Funcom said. “When you defeat Jack, you are empowered with an Anima Surge, allowing you to open a Mysterious Jack-O-Lantern obtained from your daily event login rewards.”

12 from our Guild left FFXIV to play this game for the rest of the year. Day 2 and we’re having a blast! Love the Lovecraftian vibes, great immersion/atmosphere/themes. Don’t know what its store for end-game if anything but sometimes you just play a game for the experience and dont try to think about having some sort of competitive meaning out of it, enjoy the ride and all that.

I miss Secret World :-( I loved going into the various holiday events on the hour (golems!) and do the one-off quests but it’s been all the same ones for years. The game is now just for people who really enjoy the item level treadmill that Funcom switched over to, though it’s hard to imagine there are a lot of people left who still have gear to grind out.

this game could have been the bomb. it was pretty good as-is. I just thought the avatars were dog-breath ugly. The worst I’d seen since Vanguard. Loved the game, didn’t like my avatar, couldn’t bond with her…. drifted away…

I disagree about the avatars. My TSW/SWL avatar is one of the most beautiful I’ve had in an mmo. Well, I agree that most of the modern korean mmos can’t be topped in that aspect, but still… i wouldn’t call this “dog-breath ugly”

Game could have been so cool if not for the janky combat and horrific animations (and SWL weird “upgrade” system).

Horrific running as if the character was looking for the next Barnes and noble bathroom to go drop a log.,

Starting a new toon in October and running them through Kingsmouth is practically a Halloween tradition at this stage.

Yeah, Kingsmouth and The Blue Mountains are so perfect for this time of year.

It’s the season of events in MMOs, can’t chase them all, but SWL is perfect for this time of the year.

Every year I forget how to pronounce Samhain and have to look it up.

When m and h are together in Gaelic words they are not pronounced as you’d expect. In this case it’s sowin. It’s the Irish word for November. Oíche Samhain (eeha sowin) is Halloween. Basically translates to November Night or November’s eve.
Back on topic. I haven’t played the Secret world in 3 years now. I keep meaning to go back.
