The official one week mark starting with early access passed just yesterday. I spent a whole lot of time trying to stream Friday; I cleaned up about half the Blue Mountains, finished off the first Illuminati story mission line, and ranked up to 7 in the Illuminati pecking order. I also did a brief achievement hunt, completing a handful of lore and exploration achievements in Kingsmouth and Savage Coast. Not bad for a week’s worth of gaming with around 58 hours played.
The last few days have really been smooth sailing through the story mission; I polished off the Savage Coast (had to finish a few bugged quests), finished the quests from the northern bridge in Kingsmouth that I forgot about, and did a ton of dungeon runs, mostly Inferno. Overall, I’d say the first week of The Secret World went noticeably better than I expected considering I hadn’t put 48 hours of TSW gaming into one week since the second week of closed beta testing. There are a few standout discussion points I encountered along the way, so read through the break for more.
