I like in-game events, what can I say, I’m a sucker for fluff; those new pets, or a title, or swanky clothes.
This weekend The Secret World is running a weekend long challenge (that coincidentally runs alongside a free weekend for those yet to purchase). Complete 30 quests over the course of the weekend and get 1200 points for the in-game store (pets!), and a special in-game T-Shirt. Clever. Don’t just play free for the weekend, play free and make sure you do 30 quests so that you see a good portion of the game (and are therefore presumably sucked into their scary world) before the weekend is up.
30 quests is a lot, so I’m going to have to track them as I go, I wonder if I can use this post to do that, update it a few times over the course of the weekend and see if I can get to 30 :)
I must say I need the extra ability and skill points … I die a lot in this game. A lot meaning enough to have nearly given up a couple of times. I’ve been mostly playing alone (hubby sprinted on ahead) but he’ll be joining me for this challenge and two is always better than one, so things should be infinitely easier :). This is definitely a game better played with a friend.
My other aim is to reach the third area, Blue Mountains (no, I’m not even that far yet, it’s been a slow month moving house).

Checking the store a couple of hours later I have my 1200 bonus points :). I think I’ll buy a couple of pets with that :). My newly acquired points will certainly help buy a couple of new abilities too :)
Oh yes, we apparently all get free fireworks too.
