Update - June 14, 2016[edit]


  • The victory at Salvation Pass revealed the terrible truth of the White Mantle's return. Take the fight to the enemy and strike at their heart, deep in the Maguuma Jungle, where unknown dangers and powerful enemies lurk. All is not as it seems in the Stronghold of the Faithful, where the White Mantle's innermost secrets and dark magic fester. It's a race against time to stop the plans in motion in this high-stakes, white-knuckle conclusion to the Forsaken Thicket raid.
