I actually use a lot of creative cursing for Shani (thanks in part to a book I picked up called Creative Cursing). There's a lot of different Victorian slang she uses as well (most of which would be inappropriate to repeat here).

I believe "Pahbahzhan" in the Human greeting section is incorrect. It should be "Pahbahzhen".

I love these! So immensely satisfying to use in RP, and the GW2 universe offers up so much creative freedom.

Couple charr favourites of mine that I remember are:
"Scorch my sides!"
"Smokestacks..."
"Smodur would sooner flinch than <something unlikely to happen>."
The classic "Walk softly." as a farewell for ash legion charr!
And not forgetting the infamous "Kiss my tail", courtesy of a certain dungeon NPC :p

I should use these more, instead of the usual exclamation of intercourse.

For my own norn, his well wishes when departing is a little macabre.

"May Raven not pick out your eyes."

It can mean a lot of things, but the simplest meaning is simply, "don't die."
Others might be, "stay wise" or "stay vigilant" or "keep your wits about you" or several other similar meanings.

It can also be taken less friendly, "When you surely die, I hope atleast you can keep your eyes."

For the charr idioms, one I remember hearing from an NPC (Goreblade, I think) is "that really steam(s) my ears!", used in the context of Flame spies in the Citadel; something that makes one angry/mad/furious.

For charr-on-charr threats, I notice a few focus around use of horns - e.g. "Come and get them! I'll pull off your horns and nail your tail to the floor with them!" pops up in the Iron Legion storyline.

Crusader Gahn also tells Korukhan the Blacksmith to go "hammer your anvil, the adults are talking" during one cutscene, since Korukhan is poking fun at Gahn not having a sense of humour.

Human-on-charr, whilst getting Ebon Vanguard and Sentinel soldiers to behave themselves; "I need someone who can cover me in battle, but he looks like his pelt couldn't cover me in bed!" Who said the players were the only raunchy ones?

One, from a drunk sylvari;
"You're one good grape." This is after you (possibly backhandedly) compliment him with entertainingly large words whilst investigating security for an estate in Kryta.

A norn boast;
"What? I am norn! Ale-goggles sharpen our vision! And ale-fists hit hard!"

Centaurs regularly call humans 'two-legs', for anyone writing centaur NPCs as part of a plot. Likewise, I imagine 'four-legs' is used as a comeback.

Lastly, two from the Temple of Owl, for the norn;
You find a page with a comical image of a fox crashing into a sleeping bear while an owl flies overhead. The caption reads, "Those who charge blindly forwards are likely to be surprised."

"To hear Bear or Wolf coming is to know fear, for their enemies cannot overcome them. To hear Owl is to know peace, for her enemies will never hear her coming."


Latter one could lead to some good boasts for all stripes of norn, especially boastful followers of Bear and Wolf.

I think "Go hammer your anvil" is more aimed at Korukhan's "Blacksmith" title/cover than a racial anything. And "the adults are talking" is more a general insult.

But otherwise good mentions.
