We've scrounged for what precious information we could find for our River of Souls Guide that pertains to Phase 2 and 3, as well as the Achievements. Take a look before Phase 2 begins! (ETA: 55 minutes from this post)

A fun event, though I wish I had maybe started phase 2 in a zone other than Stillmoor because Stillmoor was packed. Event bosses with 2.5 million HP downed in a couple of minutes each. For their first event of this magnitude, I'd say Trion did a pretty good job. I know people are raging right now about server queues and feeling like they didn't get "enough" by way of reward, but it was fun.

I thought it was a blast. Reminded me of when the gates of AQ40 were opened on my server in Vanilla. Sure I would have liked to plug Alsbeth full of holes but I got a server first for one of the bosses in SM so I was stoked on that.

So much whining from this though it's not even funny. Get over your sense of entitlement already ya whiny nabs!

I'll say it. i was incredibly underwhelmed.

Phase 1 takes how many weeks, phase 2 takes 15-30 minutes and quite frankly it just felt like a regular invasion with how fast we killed everything imo.

Then everyone in the game stood in front of alsbeths portal just waiting for a big boss battle. She finally spawns, they say some words, then its over. Went in the raid with a 20man pug, wiped twice on the first pull and called it a day.

Coolest part to me is this was put out a month after release, and im really looking forward to future, better events.

Guise of death was probably the best aspect of this world event. I don't mean that as "it's a cool reward." What I mean is that it's the only part that felt involving at all. Phase 1 was pretty much doing what you did already, and happening to get a reward from it. Phase 2 was a normal rift invasion that was over as soon as it started. Phase 3 was nothing.

Guise of Death was the only reason I felt like a world event was happening, because it was something present everywhere you went.

Yeah, Phases 2 and 3 were disappointing, never mind the server problems and bugs that popped up in them. But Trion have already said they learned a lot from this event so hopefully future events will be better
