The Unofficial Legends of the Secret World Book Series

Lore and legends brimming with story are no stranger to the Secret World, sweetlings! Secret World Legends is an amazing setting with wonderful writing and worldbuilding just oozing potential.

Potential that Wedd, otherwise known as Blodwedd Mallory, an avid player of Secret World Legends, is using with permission from Funcom to print and sell non-canon stories within the Secret World IP. She is author to the Unofficial Legends of the Secret World, and as of 31 May 2019 with the release of Dead in the Water, has published three books in the series.

The Unofficial Legends of the Secret World so far follow Blodwedd "Wedd" Mallory as she goes from being a student at Innsmouth Academy to a fresh agent of the Templars while working to understand the supernatural surrounding her. Not only must she survive her studies and uncover secrets while under occult siege, but she must survive being a member of a secret society - the ancient cabal known as the Templars - and all that entails for an aspiring agent.

An agent who will find themselves Chosen by Gaia to become one of Her bees, destined to protect the Immaculate Machine!

While these tales aren't canonical, they are still worth checking out for any bee eager for more in the Secret World.

Maybe they will inspire other sweetlings to transmit their stories to the hive?

To Sir, With Love

When the world ends, the fog rolls into Solomon Island and the dead start to rise. Innsmouth Academy senior Blodwedd Mallory fights to save her school from the destruction. But can she uncover secrets of the Academy’s dark history in time to stop Mal’un the Accursed from destroying the headmaster and preventing her graduation and initiation as a Templar?

London Underground

When she leaves Innsmouth Academy to join with the Templars, Blodwedd “Wedd” Mallory hopes to finish her training and be assigned to the field as an agent like her mother. But, will her chances be sidelined by Special Assignment Supervisor Dame Julia Beatrix Tyburn and Master-of-Arms Brigadier George Lethe when a deadly supernatural bomb in Tokyo throws the world into an uproar and her mother goes missing?

Dead in the Water

When Blodwedd Mallory returns to her old stomping grounds to deal with the supernatural menace threatening Solomon Island, she expects to spend her time killing zombies and helping the survivors in Kingsmouth. But, will her attempts to investigate the mysterious fog and the invading draug horde be thwarted by her tardy Templar partner, a dangerous contagion, and an old flame, Dragon agent Renee “Hadad” Laveau?

All three books are currently available for Kindle eBook and Paperback on Amazon.

Update 2.3.2 - Shenanigans

Shenanigans are afoot in the Secret World on April First, sweetlings!

Secret World Legends has received an update with some particularly obscure patch notes. Truth has been hidden within jokes! What's real and what's fake need be discovered by players!

We're working hard to figure out the reality of the patch.

The Truth

The following patch notes have been revealed to have truth to them.

  • The Tank Commander Blade and Depleted Energy Cell are now obtainable. No we aren’t going to tell you how, and we definitely didn’t test it.
  • Release Dove - Updated source text
  • Bowow - Meow grwwl hiss purrr
  • Occult Defence - Repairs Not Needed and Structural Inspector will no longer incorrectly award in the amazing yet absurd case of the Hagstone not taking any damage for 3 waves
  • Shambala team size is now 5
  • Completing matches in Shambala at level 50 now has a chance to award distillate instead of anima shards and greens
  • Mr. Rosenbaum has opened an underground fight club.
  • Introduced at least 4 new bugs. See if you can find them!

This means the following equivalent points listed have been added or changed with the patch:

  • A new mission has been added that can potentially reward the Tank Commander Blade and Depleted Energy Cell: Once More Into the Tower! This mission can be found by acquiring the Peculiar Box, a random drop from Reward Bags such as Talisman, Weapon, or Glyph Reward Bags from a variety of mission content going from the Scorched Desert all the way to South Africa! Shambala included! Be warned, however, as this mission can prove a difficult fight!
    • The Tank Commander Blade and Depleted Energy Cell are both Museum items for the Museum of the Occult.
    • A walkthrough will be made available as soon as possible!
    • UPDATE: The Peculiar Box can also drop from Rare (Blue) Reward Chests from Elite Dungeons, Lairs and Regionals!
  • The Release Dove pet's source in the Pet Window previously said it was from Jack Venture, which was false. The pet's true source is from the Tree Tender during the Valentine's Day Event. The Release Dove's source has been updated to match.
  • There is a new pet: A Glaring of Kyats! This pet's source is listed as "???" and is a reference to player Kylaney, a cat lover. We do not yet know the method of obtaining this pet. We're on the hunt!
    • UPDATE: We now know how to get A Glaring of Kyats! Use the [Kyat Key Card] on a special hatch in the Dracula's Castle instance to enter a special zone called "The Kyastle" and try your chances at a whole new mission: Extra-Dimensional Furry Friends! This mission can only be attempted once every 18 hours regardless of your patronage status regardless of whether you succeed or fail in it's timed challenge goals! That's right - a timed challenge! Collect 50 Kyats within 4 minutes in order to successfully complete this mission and receive A Glaring of Kyats!
      • The [Kyat Key Card] is obtained from the special guest "Crazy Kyat Lady" in the Rosenbrawl, who has a chance to spawn after at least 10 deaths have occurred in the Rosenbrawl.
  • The Occult Defence Achievements "Repairs Not Needed" and "Structural Inspector" were previously being rewarded for completing 3 consecutive waves at 100% Integrity instead of 10%. These achievements should now behave properly.
  • Shambala team size has been reduced to 5 from 10, making Shambala a match of 5v5 as opposed to the original 10v10. This should allow Shambala to pop more frequently than before!
  • Shambala has new rewards! We're still learning more!
  • There's a new PvP minigame: The Rosenbrawl! Players invite other players! The first mission after receiving an SMS invitation is The Rosenbrawl, which unlocks The Rosenbrawl! Completing The Rosenbrawl will then unlock the missions Martial Combat and A Pugilistic Welcome. Completion of those two missions will unlock the mission A New Contender, which is what will allow you to invite another player to the Rosenbrawl! Be warned, though - you can only complete A New Contender once in a long while!
  • There's undoubtedly going to be bugs, big or small, in any update bringing in new content. So far, there hasn't been anything particularly jarring or noteworthy.

We will update information listed here with greater clarity as new content is further understood.

Any information proven to not be part of the April Fool's Day whimsy will be added to this post!

Envoys of Avalon Vernal Equinox 2019

The Equinox looms; it's time to help the Envoys of Avalon! With their barriers at their strongest with the height of the equinox, the Druids of Avalon leave their hidden lands. From within the Holllowed Halls of Agartha, they beseech any Secret Worlder willing to aid them in preparing for any occult disaster that might strike their beloved Stonehenge.

To help the Druids, go to the Seed of Life in the Hollowed Halls of Agartha and speak to representative Fearghas Abernathy (565,190) to take his mission, which will require waves of Occult Defence Scenarios be completed.

Let us shed some light on everything the Druids have to offer during this biannual phenomenon with our Envoys of Avalon event guide! Check there for even more in-depth information on what the Envoys of Avalon consists of as well as a basic description of the Occult Defence scenario!

If you haven't done the Occult Defence Scenario since the last equinox or earlier, you may be unaware of what changes and new mechanics have occurred. Our post detailing Update 2.3.1 summarizes what was added!

The Druids aren't the only thing to return with the Equinox - the Infernal Cache is back! See more of what this Cache has to offer here!

There's still time to help the Envoys of Avalon - don't wait until it's too late!

Limited-Time 12-Month Patron Bundle

A special Patron purchase bundle is now available for a limited time! Twelve months of Patron alongside exclusive items and cosmetics - and it's not swamp gas or a weather balloon!

Make enforcing secrecy look good! For a limited time, get TWELVE MONTHS of Patron Benefits and a slew of brand-new exclusive items for your characters. Don’t miss out, because once it’s gone it’ll be recognizable only as deja vu…

The 12-Month Patron Bundle is available for a limited time! This bundle contains 12 months' worth of Patronage, an entire clothing set called the "Secrecy Enforcement Agent" set composed of five pieces of clothing, the GLIDR sprint, and the Hypnotic Memory Surpressor gadget, which looks like a neuralyzer and behaves as an aggro-wiping gadget.

12-Month Patron Bundle Contents

  • 360 days of Patron membership
  • Hypnotic Memory Surpressor - A gadget capable of acting as an aggro wipe toward enemies, excluding bosses or other players. "Wipe the short-term memory of nearby enemies in front of you, making them forget that they were fighting you. Does not work on boss or player enemies".
  • GLIDR - A segway sprint that leaves a neon blue trail wherever it goes! GLIDR stands for "Gyroscopic Lightweight Intuitively Driven Robot". See TSWDB's GLIDR page for an image of it!
  • Secrecy Enforcement Agent - This sleek suit outfit comes with the following cosmetic pieces:
    • Polished dress shoes, black
    • Tailored dress shirt and tie, white
    • Tailored suit jacket, black
    • Tailored suit jacket, faction
    • Tailored suit pants, black

The bundle can be purchased for $99 by all players, be they current Patrons, Lifetime Patrons (Grandmasters), or not currently Patrons at all.

At this time, the bundle price is consistent regardless of what membership type the buyer holds. Grandmasters, should they purchase the bundle, will receive the gadget and cosmetics but not additional patronage, as they are already perpetual patrons.

The Limited-Time 12-Month Patron Bundle can be purchased either through clicking the GLIDR-shaped icon on the top-bar in-game or if you have Secret World Legends through Steam, through the Steam store page for the 12-Month Patron Bundle DLC.
