Title: Issue #6: The Last Train to Cairo
Post by: Falconeer on March 14, 2013, 10:39:16 AM
This time is for real. Issue #6 (http://www.thesecretworld.com/news/issue_6_cover_and_preview) is out.
Here's the cover.

(http://l3cdn.funcom.com/tsw/artworks/TSW_Issue_6_insert.jpg)

And here's the preview video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cPlmwxVASY)

Features and stuff:

Quote
The cultists and their dark prophet Abdel Daoud are working in the shadows under the influence of their god Aten. The Atenists seek to undermine and weaken the tireless Marya who bravely stand against them. You must come to their aid and free some of their captured warriors.
 
The enigmatic undead weapons dealer Said can also offer invaluable advice and guidance on how to best work against the cultists. Uncover the ultimate purpose of the Atenists and their prophet to see the true danger they present to the world.
 
Be sure not miss the climactic end fight on top of the train to Cairo, where you must stop its lethal cargo!
 
In addition to the many missions in the new story line, and their side missions which can be taken to gain powerful rewards, Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo, also offers the new and unique Whip Auxilliary weapon.
 
The vicious Whip can be used for great area damage, but also for buffing your team or sneaky crowd control. Use the Whip to encourage your team mates to run faster or snare tricky opponents and pull them towards you.
 
A new presence will also make itself known in Issue #6. The veil between worlds is tearing from two sides. Both the adventurous players, ever searching for new challenges, and the ominous powers beyond our dimension, ever looking for access to our world, have long been spoiling for a fight.
 
The most rare and powerful patterns found in Lairs can now be utilized to instigate an epic confrontation with an immense foe. Gather in groups of ten to take on this devastating Raid size adversary in a titanic struggle in a shrouded location somewhere in the South Pacific. The battle is surely a trap, but will you bite with Jaws of Steel?
 
But that is not all you get in Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo. A new Veteran and Recruitment system will become available. For each month you are or have been a member you receive points which can buy unique rewards. Every new person recruited also gives you an amount of points equal to a month of Membership.
 
A completely new ranking system will also be introduced to Player-versus-player combat. You gain PVP experience points and eventually ranks when you or your team kills other players. As you go up in ranks you are awarded with new tokens, which can be used to buy fresh PVP uniforms.

More Said is always good.

Played it,

It's probably worth mentiong if you want to get your hands on the Whip straightaway to be careful with the mission where you're in a very sunny lit temple... Particularly when you're in a nice Courtyard with ancient treasure to be looted.

The Whip is a side thing that you'll miss if you're too mission focused.

Also, for those who have maxed your Skill points use it on the Whip straightaway if you're OCD (You'll max out again anyway but yeah).

I liked the whole Cairo mission.  It was fun, although I died a lot on the train part.  I am new though and mainly just in green QL10 gear.

Take the last train to Clarksville Cairo,
And I'll meet you at the station.
You can be be there by four thirty,
'Cause I made your reservation disintermination.
Don't be slow, oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
(whispers) And I don't know if I'm ever coming home.

Redid The Last Train to Cairo last night...

Man am I terrible at jumping between trains the 2nd time round.

I am not ever riding on top of a train, full stop.  :why_so_serious:

Also new clothes  :drill: :drillf:  :heart:

Not crazy about the weird half naked outfit but, then, I didn't like the one with the eyes, either.  I haven't looked very closely at the in-game clothes, though.  I really wanted to finish this quest but I've been so sick with the flu that I start getting flashing headaches if I play for more than ten minutes.   :uhrr:  Jumping around on a train would probably kill me.
