Kormir: "The conflict could only end in two ways: the ruin of the Six, or the utter destruction of Tyria's magical balance."
-> proceeds to withdraw from Tyria

How it sounds to me: "Oh yeah, we could, you know, sacrifice ourselves to save the day, buuut... we'd really prefer if we kept our little comfort and all, so, have fun I suppose? What do you mean, we're selfish assholes? You don't know what you're talking about, shut up and get slaughtered by the dragons. I mean, 'find the answer, it lies within you' and shit."

Gods really are dicks.

Also, end of PoF -> cliffhanger on Kralkatorrik branding stuff, but trailer shows stuff about undead. 'k. Guess Anet once again doesn't really know where to go with their story. Can't say I'm surprised at this point.

You do relaise and it has been shown twice now.
That the destruction of the six kinda means their energy leaks out and threatens to make things go booom?

At the very least it shows they considered intervening but at the end of the day it would have been an all-or-nothing gambit and it was not a surefire victory.

(Even though I think it would given the Gods can act in concert and the dragons cannot, just go for one at a time...)

And of course even if it was a victory it would still destroy Tyria. So purely a very hollow victory for the Gods alone as it would mean the destruction of what they are supposed to be protecting. In a way that shows they care.

It also still doesn't explain the 180 ArenaNet made Balthazar's character do, and in fact makes it WORSE. "We the Six foresaw there could be no victory in our inevitable conflict with the Elder Dragons" *looks at Balthazar* so was he one of those six or not?

That would place us as going all the way to istan with the very first release. I wouldn't mind that, but it'd be a leap. We do see what looks like new docks though...

It's coming...

I can see it now...

Teenage angst Aurene...

Locked up in her room all day. Random outbursts of anger and tears. Pining over the latest boy band. Blowing hundreds of dollars on the latest looks. Ridiculous phone bills. Spending hours in the bathroom accomplishing nothing. Complaining cause she thinks she's fat or ugly. Covered in acne...

She's a plot device, to help restore the magical balance we disrupt by killing dragons. Waiting to see if Anet introduces that even she can't consume it all without losing herself in the process. Which seems likely as things look right now by the preview.

And it's entirely the reason we gonna have to slap her shit down. ^

I'm not sure how "We either all six die, or most of us die, or we fuck up the entire planet. So we'll back up and sit this one out." = being selfish dicks.

They literally saw two outcomes, either dying or destroying the planet. A sacrifice wouldn't save the day, probably just hasten the destruction of humanity and the other mortal races.

As for Kralk, we obviously can't beat him as it is. He's larger and far more powerful then Zhaitan or Mordremoth. Likely we are going to the new region to find Aurene, and possibly search for more answers on how to defeat Kralk. The tool Vlast mentioned to replace elder dragons is still out and about somewhere. theorized to be the staff of the mists.

Besides, I highly, highly doubt we've seen the majority of the new map, only tiny parts. We know Kralk went south, so this map is south. Maybe the northern coast of Istan (if that's the star watching place), maybe a shoreline of kourna, or along the elon river heading south.

Feedback is great, and helps to improve us. If something seems off in my bios, come poke me and discuss it! If something is awesome, tell me! :)

Oh it's easy really. Sacrificing yourself to save millions of lives = selfless. Sacrificing millions of lives to save yourself = selfish. Pretty straightforward.
