The Secret World Legends Funcom stream on 11 December 2019 left quite a few bits of news for sweetlings to review! We will go into much greater detail concerning the upcoming content and everything involved once the patch hits, so don't worry about our brevity!
First off, the Winter Holidays are returning on December 12th, just one day after the stream aired. But that's not all, because the patch coming will contain not only the Winter Holidays; there's also as-of-yet unannounced bugfixes and a slew of new content!
Elite Difficulty scaling past E10 is no longer limited to Occult Defence Scenarios, and now applies to Dark Agartha and all scaling missions. This, of course, comes with greater challenges - but also greater rewards!
Glyphs will no longer be the only thing to reach 4-pips. Dark Agartha will now reward fragments to create Resplendent Talisman Imbuers in much the same way as the current Elaborate Glyph Imbuers - and to celebrate their addition, one of the Seasonal Daily Login Rewards for Winter Holidays 2019 will be a Resplendent Glyph Imbuer!
For added challenge, Dark Agartha has an entirely new mode - Challenge Timelines! Dark Agartha Challenge Timelines (DACTs) are alternate timelines to the daily Dark Agartha timeline and come with added modifiers, all of which rotate daily! Completing a DACT is more rewarding, giving more fragments and even the chance at cosmetic rewards! Faction colored spacesuits just like the kind Shane Newehart and the Invictus crew wear in Moons of Madness are available through DACTs, so you too can follow your destiny! Not only that, DACTs give you the opportunity to obtain a new emote! What emote it could be is a mystery to everybody, so we're excited to find out what it is alongside all of you!
New emotes are also available directly from the Emotes GUI!
Revealed emotes include a Salt emote, Evil Laugh emote, Finger Guns emote, and Yare Yare emote. Is this a JoJo reference? Yes, yes it is.
Agent Writing Contest rewards have found their way into the upcoming patch. The Andy and Nicole Agent Dossier: The Duo will be implemented and given to all who participated in the Agent Writing Contest. The Winner and Runner-Up Agents from the contest can be purchased from the Shadow Trafficker for 8 HexCoins. The Cleaner, the grand prize winning Agent, will also give you a piece of Agent Equipment when acquired.
A special kind of Cache known as an Arsenal is also making its appearance. Arsenals rotate separately from the primary Cache and lack cosmetics, weapon skins aside. The Dark Agartha Arsenal contains weapons both Filthy and Third Age!
A recording of the stream can be found HERE on the Funcom Twitch page.
Tune in on December 12th, sweetlings! We'll be waiting with so much to show you.

On 14 November 2019 at 9 AM EST, Secret World Legends' servers went down alongside all other Funcom MMO servers for a period of extended maintenance for the hardware with an estimated downtime of 8 hours.
When the servers came up 5 hours later, sweetlings began to find a honeyed-neat treat!
As a little compensation for today's extended downtime, you should find a couple gifts in your Delivered Items when you log back on. You have 7 days to claim these (once per account!!!!!!)"
- Andy Benditt
All characters in Secret World Legends were gifted compensation with a Cache Key and the Gravity Skates sprint! The Gravity Skates were previously awarded on only one occassion: successful completion of a Limited-Time Challenge event in The Secret World (TSW), making this the first time the Gravity Skates have been awarded in SWL!
These gifts must be claimed within 7 days from /delivereditems if you want them - by 21 November 2019, the offer expires and they'll disappear from /delivereditems!
Despite initial announcements, the Gravity Skates can be claimed on every character on an account!
Check out the Gravity Skates and get ready to become the blue blur! We know you gotta go fast, sweetlings.
Due to a bug, the free Cache Key was temporarily disabled if not already claimed by the time the issue was discovered. It is expected to return and be claimable once more for those who didn't yet do so on 15 November 2019. We will update this post accordingly when it returns.

Something stirs in the stars. What speaks in space, sweetlings?
Start your journey in the abyss of horror....
The Cyrano Story is a haunting Alternate Reality Game utilizing Google AI and set firmly in the Secret World Universe as a lead up to Moons of Madness. Created by Alice & Smith in collaboration with Funcom, it tells a tale regarding the ship known as The Cyrano through interactive investigation. Alice & Smith were also responsible for some of the previous The Secret World ARGs, such as the 2012 End of Days!
Joshua Doetsch, famed Scrivnomancer who has written for The Secret World and Secret World Legends, chipped in to add his delicious words to the Cyrano Story!
Not only does the Cyrano Story have words that pluck at the mortal minds that enjoy them, but it also has rewards! Every Seal, for a total of 6 Seals, has the chance to give a Steam Key to one of 5 games, some of which are set in the main Secret World universe (The Park and Moons of Madness), and while others are part of an alternate timeline within the Secret World Universe (The Black Watchmen, Nite Team 4, and Ahnayro). The alternate timeline is one where the bomb in Kaidan never went off so Gaia never prepared a new swarm of her Bees in 2012.
These Steam Keys will only be awarded if you log into the Cyrano Story website with your Steam account.
Complete all 6 Seals and you have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a trip for 2 to a Level 9 VIP Tour of the Houston Space Center and lunch with an Astronaut!!! Who doesn't love SPACE?
Begin your descent into madness in the Cyrano Story today!
Feast your eyes upon the Funcom press release for the Cyrano Story!

Samhain is the season for treating! Funcom is hosting TWO contests with fantastic rewards, both ending on October 31st at 11:59 PM EDT! Exclusive to Secret World Legends is an Agent Writing Contest, where you can get your very own Agent into the Agent Network! For all of Funcom's Live games (Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, Secret World Legends, and Conan Exiles), there is a Spooky Screenshot Contest to submit your spookiest shots for a chance at an equally spooky signed poster!
Go out there and contest!
Sweetlings, sweetlings all - only your sweet brainmeats can enter this contest! You have from 10 October 2019 to 11:59 PM EDT, 31 October 2019, to honey-dance a new Agent for the Agent Network!
You ever look at your agents and think, “Man, these people are all great but there’s someone that could really add some OOMF to this roster.”? Oh you have? Well, boy howdy that’s great because we got a contest for you! We want you to tell us all about this agent. What do they do, what do they look like, what secrets do they refuse to tell us?
Write an Agent you want added to Secret World Legends! Be aware that they must be something or somebody that you can see your character or other player characters sending out on missions! This means that in most cases, the Agent should not be your own character!
The Agent must also be something that could conceivably occur within the Secret World, so remember how sweet wisdom flows, for legend and lore must be known!
Agent submissions require a description of the Agent visually, their name, age, profession, species, and the profile flavor text typically found within an Agent Dossier!
1 Grand Prize will be to have your Agent added to Secret World Legends with custom profile art instead of the paperdoll template! In addition the grand prize winner will receive 1 Epic Cache Key and 5 Cache Keys.
3 Runner-Up winners will have their Agent put in the game, but the character will utilize the paperdoll templates of the majority of Agents already in the Agent Network. 5 Cache Keys will be given to each person!
Every single participant in the Agent Writing Contest will receive a unique Andy and Nicole Agent Dossier - and yes, it contains both Community Managers in ONE! Not only that, but every participant will receive the winning Agent Dossiers regardless of whether or not it was their Agent submission that won!
Prepare your dossiers by investigating the Official Agent Writing Contest Thread to see everything you need!
Information on the Agent Network can be found on our comprehensive Agent Network Master Guide!
All Agents added to the game following this contest will be put on TSWDB so everyone can see them!
For Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, Secret World Legends, and Conan Exiles, there is the Spooky Screenshot Contest! Running from 20 September 2019 to 31 October 2019 at 11:59 PM EDT, the Spooky Screenshot Contest calls for your creepiest shots!
Skeletons! Specters! Shackles! Scythe-wielding reapers! Slices of bad pizza! Spiders! Stupid jokes! Other spooky things and matters that start with an S! It’s scary season, ya’ll. To celebrate, we’re holding a screenshot contest.
Each game will have its own winner, and those with the spookiest, most creative shots chosen to win will receive a signed poster from the game their screenshot is from!
What do you think is the spookiest sight? A picture is worth a thousand words, so choose wisely!
See the Official Spooky Screenshot Contest Thread for more information and all rules for proper entry! Don't delay - screenshot today
