AK Star Wars: The Old Republic Division rounded off an eventful couple of months in the game with a new expansion, the game's third anniversary and a new Force Marshal. Aeon Knights has grown steadily over the past six months and we're happy to see the guild settle to a size we're very happy with, with member activity remaining strong. The month of December started off with a brand new second Digital Expansion for our beloved game, heavily featuring an old familiar character in Shadow of Revan. The new expansion has brought with it a couple of new planets, new story, new Operations, a new skill system, new gear and much more.
Several veteran players have used the opportunity to switch main characters and we're looking forward to seeing how the new composition and news specs gel into a new look Operations team in 3.0. Remember to read this and sign up here or HERE for the first run into the new Operations.
Last month also saw us honour a three-year tradition of celebrating the anniversary of pre-release of the game with our very own AK Player Awards. This was the first time we were able to hold it in our very own guild ship cantina, and despite a less than stellar turn out due to scheduling conflicts, great laughs were definitely had. See the winners here.
Thanks to all the players, the very generous award sponsors and the winners for making it another great year. Thanks for all the patience you've had for the guild leadership, thanks to everyone who came forward with problems, we really encourage you to keep doing so. This is just a game but it's also a community and we want everyone to be able to enjoy the game and eachother's company several nights per week. Lastly I'd like to welcome the new members again and congratulate Mazio on his promotion.
On behalf of the Dark Triumvirate/SWTOR Assembly all the best for everyone and their loved ones for 2015. Let's have another great year in Star Wars and in the Aeon Knights Community. And remember.. only 50 weeks until the Force Awakens! Glory to the Empire!
Taris: Controlled by Aeon Knights
Well this is definitely worth a news post on the front page in my opinion. Aeon Knights won a very hard fought run to conquer the planet of Taris. The worthy opponents were Mostly Harmless (Balkan Force and Guardian of Stars merged NiM Ops guild you may remember from Ahto City). As a guild we almost reached 10 Million points and could well have done so if the opposition hadn't thrown in the towel a good 24 hours before the end. We had people who were new to SWTOR Division and recruits making contributions as well as long term members. Thank you and congratulations to everyone! AK strong!
Some statistics: According to the website swtorconquest.com our score for that week was
-Highest on the server.
-Highest for any guild on Taris on any server worldwide.
-Second highest score in the EU
-5th highest score of any guild in the World.
-5 of our players achieved scores over 1 million each.
Egel, Lemmers, Fazor, Zero9 and Mazio. Pybo also came close.
-19 Members got at least one character to 50k
-25 members made some contribution.
Every point counted even if you couldn't make a huge contribution it helped keep us sane when we would log in having lost a 200k lead overnight.
The full list of scores is here:
- The Germany meet up at Gamescom in Cologne was last month and saw current and former Aeon Knights attending the SWTOR Cantina and exploring the and bringing back some prizes for the community.
- Vote on the winner of exclusive Gamescom swag HERE thanks to Aileme for the prizes (all divisions welcome to vote)
- Reaper of Souls patch 2.1 has seen a mass return of AK members to Diablo 3 with several members trying testing their skills and internet connections in Hardcore for the first time.
- Next community meet up is currently being planned join the discussion here.
The summer has been a period of increased progression for AK Wildstar, it has also seen recruitment back to post launch levels a sure sign the game is doing well. The summer has also seen the launch of 2 major content updates which is a nice change for a 2 month old game.
The summer has also seen a change to guild structure with Codey becoming second in command, Elfarran picking up the role of PVP officer and Krays joining the junior officer team, we are sure the new changes will help the guild prosper even further. The introduction of a PVP officer has allowed us to open up a 4th guild night (Saturday) dedicated to PVP in which most of the guild participates in Rated and practice matches in full guild groups. Work has also begun on our Warplot with our architects slaving away to make it ready for some epic 40v40 PVP.
As for Attunement the majority of the guild sit at 50 - 75% dungeon attunement, Raids are so close we can almost touch them now and with changes to dungeon attunements, amp and skill point drops we will be raiding sooner rather than later which is a major achievement for a non hardcore guild in Wildstar.
We also have an ongoing competition that we invite everyone in AK to vote on, in which someone will win some epic rare Wildstar swag!!
This month we leave you with a small impromptu guild outing to the Dominion Capital city.
Keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and the Aeon Knights Youtube channel for all of the latest news from the Wildstar division.
Summer has been interesting for AK SWTOR with our recruitment up and has seen us get a lot of excellent new members. The game itself has made that a lot easier and activity is way up thanks to an imho excellent new update with both housing and guild housing. With a big expansion coming at the end of the year, things are looking great for SWTOR players.
In the first week of the new update Aeon Knights managed to purchase the Guild Flagship (soon to be named), largely thanks to generous donations from it's members. With the ship unlocked, we headed straight to Makeb and invaded the planet with a goal of conquering it and smashing some Republic. With a pretty herculean effort our modest-sized guild managed to compete and enter the top 10, eventually finishing in 8th place on the conquest ranking. It really came down to the wire. Thanks to all these players posing on the bridge of our new ship and several others for the effort!
Progress for AK SWTOR!
After a couple of months of attendance dips and therefore months behind everyone else , we managed 3 nights of full AK groups and we managed to breeze through the Dread Council quicker than anticipated. Aeon Knights continues it's track record of taking it's time and still managing to complete all Hard Modes Operations before new content is released. (Largely without guides)
Thanks also to the others who couldn't be here, hope you can all join us again soon!
Check back soon for the youtube video of it.
In less important news we also had some time to kill and got to 1/5 in Dread Fortress Nightmare Mode. This isn't really our goal though so we'll have to see if we decide to venture much further down that path. Here's the video!
Dread Council HM AK 1st kill
Nefra NiM AK 1st kill
8 years is pretty long period in the MMO world and I'm proud that I've spent most of them in our digital space. Aeon Knights was founded on 6th of July 2006 as a small friends-only kinship within LOTRO and since then has grow beyond countries and games to establish bounds between people across the whole world.
I'm proud to be part of this glorious guild, among with the finest guys and gals to spend your gaming time with
A huge thank you to Reclaw, Pybo, Jinks, Ratzinger and Bibje for always standing on the front lines!
Salute to all the SWTOR, Wildstar and TESO Officers that are making AK what it is right now!
Honorable mention to all who had fallen and lost their faith along the way, but have dedicated their time to AK.
But now I'm raising my glass to honor you, my dear friend, who wears proudly the AK tag high above your head and writing our glorious history every day! A deep bow and thank you!
Happy 8-th Birthday Aeon Knights!
It's time for our first housing spotlight. For the first month we may have two houses so watch this space.
First up is our very own Finnish Aurin Noirik/Revon.
Boasting a very beautiful Aurin garden and a well planned out house its definitely worth a visit.

- Oh yes and before I forget we have a Watchdogs game code to give out this next month. <still a work in progress so watch the forums>
Forgive the ESO division for no update thats mainly due to my unexpected absence and the disappearance of a couple of my officers leaving me with ONE who I'd like to acknowledge here for stepping up and keeping things going while I couldn't get in game....Thanks Helch
But don't worry we'll be ready for next months update with screenies and everything....On that note just a few words I'd like to say congratz to the new SWTOR leadership 'The Assembly' and to Pybo you guys are doing great jobs and lastly to Reclaw your ideas are taking Aeon Knights to new heights!!!
SWTOR Division's biggest news this month was the farewell of it's beloved leader Reclaw, who moved to a Community Leader/Council role. Aesir, Figgs and Sciron will henceforth be jointly leading the division. The three will be known as the 'Assembly' on the forums.
Gambling fever has hit SWTOR with a giant Rancor mount as the ultimate jackpot prize. The ultimate MMO credit sink has been invented and it's in the form of a "slot machine" on Nar Shadaa. Damn you lousy HUTTS! Aeon Knights have also started a gradual recruitment push with several recruits of all levels and experience joining our division over the past couple of weeks.
In Events news: AK were spotted almost failing at a recent Fleet datacron run, but the last month has been a resounding success in a great month's worth of fun Operations Nights.
May saw open beta and the launch of Wildstar. The mood around the division during open beta was very relaxed with lots of people on TS but not many in game due to avoiding spoilers. The final day of open beta saw the largest AK gathering ingame to date with over 30 people grouping up to kill a world boss and tour the Algeroc zone.
Launch day arrived and Aeon Knights bravely fought through big login queues to arrive on the server Hazak! Once ingame the server proved itself to be stable and polished. As the week moved on AK started to see its true potential reaching 114 individual members ingame. We did lose 3-4 members due to login queues and there were calls from other areas in the division to take advantage of free transfers and move the guild off Hazak. The leadership discussed all options but decided to ultimately to stay on Hazak due to past experience of being on lesser populated servers in SWTOR.
The guild also congratulated our first 50 Ocelot with another 28 players to date following in his footsteps, this prompted the start of some very tough veteran adventures.
In recent days the guild has seen its decision to stay on Hazak justified with login queues dropping down to a minimum while the server remains the fullest EU PVP server.
This week will see the start of events for AK in Wildstar and the first vet dungeon runs.
From all in Wildstar VIVA LA AK.
Thanks to Jinks, Aesir and Pybo for this Month In Review.
Ok so screenshots from the get together first!
31 of us turned up and caused much confusion around Algeroc. We decided to stop by the Town hall and have a rest.
We then caught wind the World boss for Algeroc so we went and took his 1.4 million health down. (Pepper was right with we are not wiping for the first 20 seconds then the first telegraph finished off half of the raid.)
Our video of the World boss.
We then went to the Exiles special operations room, one of the many hidden gems on Nexus that you will only find by exploring the world.
Finally we went back to the site of our first guild picture all those weeks ago.
We ended the night with a dance off AK style, see you all on Nexus in 2 weeks.
April Month in review:
Its that time again guys, boy it comes around almost too quick.
- First a shout out for our failed Division, Hello Kitty Online, some one's heart was just not in it (Yes this was a April fools attempt) A huge shout out to ratz for making the forum section for this.
- Game of the Month winner is Heartstone Information can be found in this post. There is now a poll to vote for June's GOTM.
- Guild meet poll is up: Please cast your vote
- Also Let me introduce you to the Aeon Knights Youtube channel for all your guild related needs <kinda still a work in progress>
Just about a month has passed since ESO went live and the AK guild has grown to a healthy 58 members since start, although we have to face the reality that not all members will subscribe. A new recruitment drive has been planned once the "freebie" period that came with original purchase is over.
First guild event was held last weekend in the pvp zone Cyrodiil. Although turnout could have been better, everyone who attended had a good time which is a good sign for future events to come. Our guild's home campaign is Auriel's Bow, where Ebonheart Pact has a strong showing, including first emperor.
We had our first member hit lvl cap, which Species who hit veteran rank 10 on his sorcerer Melkiah yesterday. Big gratz to him.
The community as a whole is supporting the guild crafters with material and breakdown items, and we have crafters in place for all the different crafting disciplines who can crank out gear at high levels, many are just busy researching the last bits and pieces to be able to craft endgame gear.
Everyone is looking forward to ESO's first 'big' patch which will introduce the adventure zone Craglorn to the ESO warriors. Craglorn will open a new zone full of open world group content, new dungeons and raids as well as the highly anticipated 12man trials, which are tough-as-nails PVE events and encounters that are being run on a timer and with a limited pool of resurrections during the trial.
Overall, AK in ESO is moving forward as solid as a rock. In true AK style, the emphasis is on the community and not on world/server first/top etc and in such we're building an excellent example of a social guild that is able to stand its ground in time to come. Future looking good.
Aeon Knights SWTOR has an interesting month behind it, with the very welcome return of new story content to tickle our Star Wars lore bones. As an Ops group the little rough patch we went through has made us all try to re-assess and hopefully ultimately brought us all somewhat closer together as a team. With that we can't forget to mention that our progress continued, with the victory in the battlefield of Dread Fortress Hard Mode.
SWTOR is also busy unveiling all the fancy new features we can look forward. (Got to keep up with the Joneses, apparently) Strongholds and Guild Flagships and other housing related goodness is incoming in the next few months. Finally I leave you with a screenshot and to avoid any spoilers with a screenshot that in any way involves the story we have just witnessed. Instead we will look to the more recent future and we leave you with a picture of our next and final hurdle. I give you: The final assault on the throneroom.
Month may, the month where Wildstar releases. The guild has grown and the 40+ active members of the Wildstar division are looking forward to the 31th of may, the release date off Wildstar. The beta is going well on its way. With the release of UI2.0 the game is getting his final shape.
The guild had a big blast in beta so far (see picture).
The guild leaders and officers are also shaping up the last important things such as raid days and type of server. If you wanne get your vote going, dont forget to visit our forum!
Thanks to Helchgam, Aesir and Bibje
Aeon Knights' Operations team have finally completed the assault on Dread Fortress Hard Mode.
After a lot of nights wiping on this boss, somehow everything finally clicked tonight and we made real progress, eventually getting past the mechanic we were stumped on. After that it was basically a done deal, she was on the defensive, we had broken her resolve and we rushed to the finish line.
Again I have to thank more than just the 8 people who were present, thanks also to Reclaw, Pybo, Xhend, Egel, Cariosus, Stoilys, Ewae, Jerith, Doktore and Gonis. Can't wait to down it with you guys.
(Best quality we could get so far)
8:10 onwards for the elation!
Wymbolt: "About time, fucking hell."
