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.

True enough. That chunk was mostly placed there because haphazard post-writing whilst checking the rest of the thread to make sure there were no duplicates, and then remembering new things in the process.

The horns-centric stuff can probably be extended to other races using it as an insult against charr as well. Could also be further extended to exclamations and other expressions - especially if they grow throughout the owner's life.

Surprised that "Dead Gods" hasn't been mentioned yet. Was used by Pyre Fierceshot in one of the GW1 cutsceens. Used mostly as a curse/exasperation, my Charr engineer has used it (along with a few other words that wont be mentioned here) more then a few times.

Spent a while exploring the Citadel today, found a few named charr here and there. Naturally I shook them until interesting things came out. Didn't get many.

Notable one, though- "like a cub on honey", in reference to running around with no regard for one's surroundings.

If anyone wants to doublecheck that, it's said by Smolt Copperscald on the entry level of the Core - he's on the right, just past the entrance to the Stockade.

Did some massive updating here, since I've been ever so lazy.

I think I found one that you don't have for Sylvari wellwishing and greetings bit. Outside the Garden of noon there is a NPC called Momac who welcomes you with "May the sunshine warm your shoulders"
