Launch day has come and gone and The Secret World did not fall into calamity. If I had to make a guess, I’d bet the vast majority of the player base pre-ordered and has been playing since last Friday, making the launch a little anti-climactic. Still, there were no outages, no massive downtimes, no lag-fests – not anything terrible, anyway. Mission bugs notwithstanding, the official launch of TSW as been a success.
Now that I’ve settled in to the game, a TSW-centered chapter of Die by the Arrow will be springing up shortly. To that end, I’ve dubbed these dairies the “Illuminati Diaries.” Today is entry 1. I spent a lot of time on the Savage Coast this weekend. Then I streamed around 11 hours on Monday alone. Yeah, it’s summer time. I ran the Inferno dungeon and wasted a fair amount of time on broken missions. I also started to get a better feel for my Rifle build – making this entry a good length and a good read for rifle-interested parties. Read through the cut for details.
