– Players get to battle the huge Bird of the Zero Point Pathogen in a 40 man raid event to clear away the Filth and open the way to Tokyo –
The final showdown in Agartha takes place now in Funcom’s The Secret World! The last chapter of the extensive Whispering Tide event has come, and now the players must face a huge 40 man raid challenge to defeat the invasion of Filth.
The devastating Filth has been corrupting the world tree itself as it emanates from its source in Tokyo. But the community of players has been fighting against this invasion in a series of collaborative in-game events and is driving the enemies of Gaia back.
This latest chapter in the event chain will run until victory has been achieved and the portal to Tokyo has been cleansed. The players will then gain entry to the upcoming Tokyo area when Issue #9 is released.
The Whispering Tide event does not only offer great rewards in the form of epic gear and unique outfits, but this challenge also gives the players the chance to win powerful raid loot.
