Garrison – First Impressions

Over the last couple of days, I’ve spent some time setting up my Garrison. As you’d expect there’s a real Orcish feel which looks pretty bland but I’m hoping some sort of customisation (albeit minor) will come later on.

Midsummer 2014

As the nights get cooler on this side of the world, what better time to warm yourselves against a virtual flame? Midsummer Fire Festival is just revving up and although there’s nothing new to do if you’ve completed all your achievements already, you can still pick up a Crown of the Fire Festival if you’ve previously completed A Thief’s Reward. If you’re like me, you destroy yours every year just so you...
