Very soon, in fact. Friday 5th April.1 Tidal Basin — the last bastion of the Black Tusk opens.
Beating back the Black Tusk from the Tidal Basin stronghold will provide a little more than just World Tier 5. We will also:
- Get to see a little more story, around why things are going the way they are and why Tidal Basin has unlocked to us at the moment it did.
- Gain access to ‘Heroic’ difficulty missions, a step above the already aptly named ‘Challenging’ difficulty.
- Start to see the first three full-sets with 5- and 6-piece set bonuses dropping. (Details of each in video at end of post)
- True Sons
- Ongoing Directive
- The ability to play ‘meaningfully’ again with progress to gear we know will last a while, therefore making builds a worthwhile endeavour. :D
I’ll likely still only play when others are playing, as grouping with friends is still my primary draw to this game. But I’m still *super* excited by this coming to be, and so soon! I thought we would have to wait at least a little longer than this.
There is more story and stronghold content free to all players in the pipeline as well. In particular I cannot wait for ‘The Last Castle’ story DLC which will put players in a mission inside The Pentagon.
For now though, we got a fair bit to look forward to in the short term. And it coming out at the start of a weekend? Perfect. :)
