I had the pleasure of attending Foostival UK 2016, and I had a wonderful time. I attended the inaugural event last year, and you can read all about my experience of Foostival UK 2015 here. What follows below is my account of Foostival UK this year. The tl;dr of it is: awesome event, great people, and lots of loot – you should definitely go next year!
A few weeks ago the second raid wing Forgotten Thicket: Salvation Pass was released, and just like the first wing Spirit Vale, it seems pretty obvious running through it. Some difficult bosses, nice rewards and this time with a nice cinematic at the end. But this time again there is a lot more that’s hidden lorewise, somethings that are confirmed and easy to see, other things just hinting at stuff or just real overspeculation.
For those of you who never met me, I am one of those players who just loves World vs World, spending countless of hours in there for more than two years on different EU servers, Gold, Silver and Bronze. And even though I’ve had lots of fun looking for fights in the past, the state of the gamemode as it is now has had me worried for quite some time.
Ever since Guild Wars 2 was announced, there was a feature that had me very excited, dungeons. ArenaNet had promised to deliver us a challenge for groups of 5. They promoted dungeons as the competition to the instanced-type of content other games provide. That promise was delivered to an extent, with the explorable mode of Arah back in the day, claiming that title and being without a doubt the hardest challenge the game had to offer.
