THEME Halloween

You are cordially invited to The Masquerade of Madness

That time of year has come once more. There’s a chill in the air, and a shadow creeps across the land. Celebrate the return of Mad King Oswald Thorn and his son, Bloody Prince Edrick Thorn. As the the endless night draws near, soon our all-time-favourite monarch, Mad King Thorn, will bestow us with his beautiful and terrible presence. The theme of this competition is Halloween! Display your best spooky looks for a chance to win the Mad King’s favour! Join us and dance the night away at the ball of madness. Your Mad King says…

Don’t be late… or else!

GW2 Lore/Speculation | Lovecraft’s Dark Influence

Here we will all be donning our tinfoil hats for some Guild Wars 2 story speculation, about the deep-sea dragon: And the dark Lovecraftian influence, which we have been told, will shape the future narrative of the Icebrood Saga. Here we will look at Lovecraft in brief, and the philosophy of his Cthuhlu Mythos more deeply.

Weird Tales

Guild Wars 2 | The Spirits of the Wild | Lore and Speculation

Here I cover the story and known lore of the Spirits of the Wild and their relations with the Norn people. I also dive into some deep speculation about the possible mastery lines for the Great Spirits of Bear, Raven, Snow Leopard, and Wolf. And share with you my mad-cap ideas about a SHARED Elite Specialisation I would love to see in the game, The Shaman.

Guild Wars 2 | Soulbeast Elite Specialisation Guide

This my Soulbeast elite specialisation guide for new players. This guide is focuses on pve skills for this spec, not their PVP variants and is also not a deep dive into meta end game– if you are looking for either of those there are links below – instead this guide is here to save new and returning players hours of research and reading on the wiki.
