#2319435 World Events : Where are Commissar, Foulbear and Fire Shaman in the rotation ?

Posted swordmagic on Yesterday, 10:58 AM

Prior to the feature patch i used to run all the world events using the gw2stuff timer.

The feature patch introduced a fixed spawn time for most world events, however they forgot about the above mentioned 3 world events.

Does anybody know why these 3 are not included in the rotation ?

Kinda miss the old system, the fixed spawn times doesn't suit me very well, feels more like a chore now.

Add nifty skills, abilities or effects on them instead.

Give me a single NPC trader that sells EVERYTHING in the game in unlimited quantities and you basically have my dream economy.

You mean having no economy at all is your dream economy?
Oh well, to each his own I suppose.


#2005911 Buying the Wrong Armour Type (Dungeons)

Posted Linfang on 09 October 2012 - 03:45 PM

This happened to me too, but on the Durmand Priory armor merchant and luckily I accidently purchased something I was looking to buy anyways, still pissed me off because I did not have all the money for a full set I was gonna save it all and buy it at once. I dont understand why I get confirmation to destroy some stupid piece of metal from a event chain yet when it comes to expensive gear a little slip and bam, you own it. such bullshit.

The above suggestions are good, and they're actually things that are pretty commonplace amongst games nowadays. Only 1 of them would be needed to solve the issue and imo, all round it should be the refund option. It's pretty pathetic that there isn't some way to avoid these general human errors we all make sometimes.

Your own fault for hyping it up.

#1995998 On the persona of the Elder Dragon

Posted Konig Des Todes on 05 October 2012 - 07:18 PM

This had came up on the official forum's lore forum and I went into a bit of detail on this over there, and it seems to have caught some interest so I figured I'd bring this up over here and see what you all think.

Through observation of the Elder Dragons and their minions via GW2 and Edge of Destiny, I have come to the conclusion that each Elder Dragon has a distinctive "personality" - or rather, desire - that controls their actions (and in turn, the actions of their minions). This line of thought was originally inspired by a comment Thalador made to me in game where he mentioned some of Zhaitan's minions speaking of immortality gained through him, and it brought me back to an old thought process I had when I first read Edge of Destiny. Before going into detail, I believe that the ED’s personalities can summarized as desires; effectively:
  • Primordus desires destruction
  • Jormag desires power
  • Zhaitan desires immortality
  • Kralkatorrik desires perfection
I cannot denote the deep sea dragon (referred to as "DSD" for simplicity) or the mysterious sixth dragon (referred to as "Sixth" for simplicity) due to the lack of knowledge on them, unfortunately. Now to elaborate further...

Kralkatorrik

From Edge of Destiny, on Kralkatorrik’s thoughts, we’re told that his mind is “like standing in the eye of a cyclone” (pg390) and that “the center of every vortex is a great emptiness-a hollow longing. The storm tries to fill the emptiness, but more it hungers, the deeper the the emptiness becomes.” (391) And as Snaff became what Kralkatorrik wasn’t, the harder Kralk tried to obtain Snaff. This ties into how the branded’s minds are in the book – they’re fanatic, but more than that. They’re seeking to give Kralkatorrik all they can. In other words, Kralkatorrik is attempting to obtain all that he is not yet. And when one obtains everything, they become “perfect.”

Zhaitan

Zhaitan is another story. His minions denounce their faiths, despite how faithful the Orrians were they blasphemy the gods and call the Mists “lies.” (all Orr personal story bosses as well as some meta event bosses) But on top of this, they also say that Zhaitan is truth, and Zhaitan is the only true means of obtaining immortality. And through serving Zhaitan, by empowering him, they can obtain that. Where Kralkatorrik forces fanaticism, Zhaitan feeds lies of knowledge and longevity. And in a way, what better way to obtain immortality than through undeath – once you half the rotting process (which seems to be true for risen), there is no more aging. Thus, you have a form of eternal youth, and through becoming more powerful that eternal youth becomes invincible – thus “immortal.”

Jormag

Jormag’s unique in his corruption. As Khrigar Ripjaw in Safewatch Vale says, where other Elder Dragons corrupt to enslave, Jormag first promises power prior to corrupting. He entices those who will become icebrood to join him willingly, and corrupts through the mind whereas Kralkatorrik does physically and Zhaitan does magically. Through this, he tempts his minions to become stronger, and oddly, he is the only Elder Dragon who’s minions work alongside non-corrupted creatures – icebrood are often seen alongside non-corrupted Sons of Svanir as “gifts” of their devotion, but on top of this as seen through events and stories like Honor of the Waves, Jormag blesses those who prove themselves with more power – his power. He is creating an army of those who desire power, whereas others are merely creating armies and anything they can obtain. As such, by using those who crave power, he ensures that he himself will become more "powerful."

Primordus

My reasoning for linking Primordus to destruction isn’t in its minions names. Rather, it ties to the minions’ actions and how he corrupts. Unlike all other Elder Dragons (except possibly the DSD), Primordus does not corrupt living beings. At all. He creates mimicries of living creatures instead. His minions themselves seem to hold one objective, to kill everything that lives. Since Eye of the North, that is the main thing they were said to desire – and though I can’t recall where, it was said that the Great Destroyer’s purpose was to eliminate life to make the way for Primordus. So if Primordus didn’t want to kill everything, why would eliminating life make the way for him? Perhaps “destruction” isn’t as accurate as “genocide” would be.

DSD

A small attempt to determine what the DSD may have for a desire. In the Movement of the World, we're told that it twists water itself - similar to Primordus, it doesn't seem to corrupt living beings, though we can't be certain of this yet. Along with this, we're told by largos that the ocean depths are now filled with "horrors" (sounds very lovecraftian to me). This in of itself doesn't give much, but it does remind me of a certain NPC who corrupts living beings and transforms them in GW1: Kanaxai. Kanaxai is called a demon, though its origins unknown, and appears fairly humanoid. However, it corrupts and torments individuals by nightmares and horrors, turning them into Oni. Take note, that Oni had tentacles on their faces. And that Kanaxai was underwater when he was trapped by the Jade Sea. Not a solid connection, but a possible one.

Interesting to note is that these aspects of Kanaxai are also shared with Abaddon, though the "corruption of humans" are a bit different (shimmery and aetheral, with fish-like skin - whereas Kanaxai's "corruption of humans" turns them into grey and... actually a tad bit insect like I think - not really sure how to define that)

If this connection is true, then I would thus link the DSD with the concept or desire of "psychopathy" "madness" or "insanity." Something that horrors would often bring (once more, sounding lovecraftian).

Sixth

This one's even harder, though similar to the DSD, we're given two hints at the Sixth's nature, both coming from Zone Green of the Infinite Coil Reactor in Mount Maelstrom. As many may know by now, Zone Green is overgrown with vegetation. This in of itself indicates a "nature" dragon. However, what's just as common place as vegetation there is poison. Similarly, one may find out that the Infinite Coil Reactor was built after the Thaumanova Reactor exploded - as a replacement to the Thaumanova Reactor. Take note that the Thaumanova Reactor also has 6 sections to it - though it lacks a "zone black" counterpart. The vegetation section of it has an event with a "poison creature" - specifically, a rotting oakheart (a similar one can be found in Greatheart Weald of Queensdale during an event). These oakhearts are oddly shining despite being called "rotting."

Sadly, this doesn't really give any indication to the dragon's persona, though it does give a line of thought when one considers that for Zhaitan and Primordus, their element is tied to their persona (undeath is a form of faux immortality; fire destroys and burns things) - thus poison would in turn suffocate life. Through such, I would denote on the lack of further information, that the Sixth's persona and desire would be "pain" or "agony" - effectively, "sadism."


Though I still wouldn't put much faith onto the conclusions of the DSD and Sixth's.

I think he was referring to your saying that the Pale Tree wasn't created to combat the Elder Dragons as an assumption.
If that's the case, then it isn't an assumption.

Ronan and Ventari didn't know of the Elder Dragons, and they're the ones who planted it. The Pale Tree existed before the Elder Dragons began awakening (arguably Primordus was "waking up" when the Pale Tree was planted, but it didn't wake up until over 50 years after).

Just to be clear, I'm basing that off of the fact that the different races seem to correspond to the major religious/non-religious ideologies; I'm not assuming that people can only relate to one of the races. On that note, just as your potentially non-human character will worship the gods, my character will too. ;)

I would say charr represent atheism, flat-out denying the gods' existence, and asura have a more scientific world-view, not necessarily denying the existence of gods but attributing everything to the formulaic Eternal Alchemy. Of course, there's a little bit of overlap, but generally speaking, that's how I place them.

I don't know of any modern society which is militaristic to the point of believing they should kill any god they come across. And we're lacking a playable monotheistic race if that's your argument.

I don't think that really works.

BTW, charr aren't atheists - they acknowledge the gods' existence, but they don't worship them and instead confront them. In fact, the only race that questions the existence of the Six Gods are the sylvari - and as said, they're agnostic, not atheist.

Not sure if you're mocking me, and if so not sure what I did to deserve that. But obviously I meant what Shew said.
No, I was not mocking you, as the sylvari themselves being created is the topic of unknown, moreso than the Pale Tree's creation. So I thought that was what you were referring to, since you didn't quote what the "was not" was in reference to.

You do realize there are TWO Tyria's.
Of course I bloody know this - now it feels like you're mocking me. ~_~

But unless you can read Ree's mind, you can't prove that she meant the world and not the continent - in fact, she wouldn't mean the world because of her wording, that it hasn't been seen in Tyria - well no one that we know has seen outside continent Tyria (sans the Order of Whispers), so it'd be a facepalmingly obvious comment to say no one has seen one within the world over the continent. After all, if a second pale tree hasn't been seen in continental Tyria, it's pointblank obvious no one we know would have seen a second one in the world.

View PostSenatic, on 16 July 2012 - 09:16 PM, said:

But again, there was a very specific chain of events that took place to drive the Sylvari into feeling their purpose is to fight the Elder Dragons. Whether that feeling is a result of these circumstances (ventari's teachings, the pale tree drawing inspiration from humans, the trees connection to the earth) or if it's an inherent calling - well the only way we'll know that is if there is another pale tree.
Another tree existing and other sylvari existing is a vastly different situation than the sylvari's feeling to fight the Elder Dragons. Sylvari can exist without that feeling if they come from another Pale Tree since we were told by Ree that it's the Pale Tree giving the calling to fight the Elder Dragons (via the Dream of Dreams it seems).

View PostShew, on 16 July 2012 - 09:17 PM, said:

The druids, oakhearts, Avatar of Melandru: they all look so similar. There has to be some connection. We've seen that sylvari are connected to the oakhearts somehow (via the first trailer), and there's a Druid Spirit sylvari skill according to this: http://www.reddit.co...ra_and_sylvari/.
They're all related to nature - oakhearts are trees, the avatar of melandru is taking on a spectral appearance of mobile trees as that's a widespread apsect of nature, and the druids left their flesh in order to be closer to nature, thus taking on the spectral appearance of mobile trees.

Sylvari have a connection to all nature, since they themselves are part of it, hence their tie to oakhearts.

Their tie to druids - however tenuous - is the unknown.
