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.
It’s one of my favorite places in game, the Durmand Priory. There are so many interesting books, weird artifacts and tiny hints to unknown pieces to the lore hidden in the basement, it’s amazing for sure and a must visit for anyone interested in the background behind Guild Wars 2.
One of the things that came after the release of Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns, was new hardcore content, in the form of raids. Forsaken Thicket is the first raid and last week I finally got a chance to take a good look at the first raid wing, Spirit Vale, and I have to say I like the direction the story seems to go to.
