A curse from from the racial skill... "Lyssa confound you!"

And of course - "May the six watch over you" for a blessing.

"Gods -damn- it."
"By Lyssa's taint!"
"By Balthazar's balls!"
"May your Gods offer true blessings."

If I think of anymore I'll post again.

They also just say "burn me". (This alternative might mean "f-word me" though.)

Keep 'em coming! It's looking a bit thin by the sylvari for example.

Well, to be fair, that makes sense. They haven't existed long enough to amass cultural proverbs beyond Ventari's tablet.

I. Live life well and fully, and waste nothing.
II. Do not fear difficulty. Hard ground makes strong roots.
III. The only lasting peace is the peace within your own soul.
IV. All things have a right to grow. The blossom is brother to the weed.
V. Never leave a wrong to ripen into evil or sorrow.
VI. Act with wisdom, but act.
VII. From the smallest blade of grass to the largest mountain, where life goes—so, too, should you.


Some of those are said as proverbs, like "Hard ground makes strong roots" or "The blossom is brother to the weed".

A very good point Spokko. I added these, as I believe they can be used and fiddled with as well and it can't hurt to have them on the list :)

Also, another for Sylvari insults/bad words:
They tend to call people they don't like a "weed"

The flipside would be: blossom or some other nicer plant
