It's turning our to be a busy month in ESO and I have more news to share
We have a new Reapers Hand (Officer) Garwi the flatterer I hope you have the opportunity to group with this magnificent beast. His preferred event is long walks on the beach and Dungeons of any variety and size.
Mid Year Mayhem
This awesome PVP based festival will not be happening this year due to the issues with the group finder. THe LFG tool would cause serious frustration for players trying to complete battlegrounds for this event.
ESO Live - Scalebreaker Dungeon DLC
Wednesday 3rd July 11pm BST on www.twitch.tv/bethesda
Seriously what the fuck is that!
Anyway we will be hearing about the 2 dungeons including a follow on from Selenes Web and Quality of Life additions to the game. If you want to read more details you can on the ESO Website
Getting an early start on the guild update!
Reaper of the Month
This guildie has been at the top of his game this month, welcoming new players to the guild and keeping them company when the rest of us are in the land of sleep. He also showed great insight into the guild with his suggestions for events in July as well as the pleasure of his company both in voice chat and in our events and groups. Boots is ready to lend a hand all you have to do is ask! *Boots drops his cocktail* That's right @Demetrice our Boots is Reaper of the Month.
N.B. Boots is on his apprenticeship this month so hop on discord and wish him all the best for this awesome experience.
Streaming in Discord
We have updated our streaming policy, while are very happy for guildies to stream whilst in game and during events we ask the following conditions are met:
1) The Guild Chat panel must be completely covered so that anyone watching the stream cannot read the contents of chat.
2) Discord voice and text chat must be muted and hidden. Only your voice should be streamed.
3) If you want to stream your conversations with other guildies you MUST be in the Shhh! Livestreaming voice channel.
N.B. If you enter this channel you may be being streamed.
Some guild members are not comfortable talking whilst being streamed and we often find our Alice in Wonderland Tea Party of conversation end up being a spooky library of silence not what we want for our events. Thank you for your understanding.
New Reapers! Lord Viper & MasterBalle have both been ranked up to full reapers. Lord Viper has shown us the cut of their jib on Discord *you know what we mean* their distinct flavour of nuttiness compliments are crazy stew well. Masterballe has earned their name in guild chat getting those groups going can be like herding ducks or is that supposed to be cats? ducats ... well Masterballe has the skills and cant wait to group with them personally.
Tanwen is back...though it is debatable whether she actually left. Tanwen is back as our lovable Reapers Hand she is well known for her Dungeon events which she knows like the back of her hand except when she is drunk then its not her hand she doesnt know where that one came from and it resembles aetherius, which is hilarious. No matter her state of mind Tanwen's events are suitable for both the humble beginner and the not so humble veteran. so if you see her events don't be afraid to jump in.
Guild Members that have been around a while will know about our crafting directory, well it's being retired. From now on all Crafting requests should be posted in the #surreal-crafting-hall Discord channel where you will find a request template under pinned messages so you give our crafters all the details they need.
Leave your request in this channel and you will be contacted by one of our crafters when they are available, this will stop you send a request to someone who has just gone on holiday for 2 weeks.You can of course still ask in guild chat there may be someone around who craft for you straight away.
N.B. The guild only completes crafting requests for guildies who are Reaper Rank and only members of Reaper Rank can see that Discord channel. BUT initiates can still ask in guild chat.
Keep checking the events calendar this month as some Reapers Hands won't be adding their events until later..slackers working and on holiday :P
Here are some event teasers of things for you to look forward to
1) Reapers Journal
A casual questing event. Bring along a character that hasn't completed any of the Craglorn content. See our Reapers Journal thread for full details.
We are continuing to run both the normal and veteran trials on a Thursday but we will be changing trials every 2 weeks to keep things interesting. Hopefully our adjustments to start times will work better but these may be subject to changes.
Is a hilarious event run by MorganaTahl she will lead you around Tamriel unlocking Wayshrines for your characters and give you awesome descriptions of each area. Meet Tour Guide Barbie.
