The banner of Deldrimor.

The Dwarves remained neutral during the great Guild Wars that waged between humans, but after the Searing everything changed. Mired in their own civil war, the Deldrimor extended the hand of friendship to Ascalonian refugees... to the betterment of both races. Since the end of their civil war, the Dwarves have re-entered the Depths in search of their destiny, and sought out alliances with races both above and below ground.

The Guild Wars Eye of the North Manuscript

Deldrimor is a kingdom of dwarves residing in the Shiverpeak Mountains. They are very friendly towards other races, such as the humans, and passage through the harsh mountain range (which, along with the Sea of Sorrows divides the continent of Tyria in half) is welcome to anyone who is a friend of Deldrimor.


Most of the Deldrimor Dwarves worship one god, the Great Dwarf, and believe in a place called the Great Forge - presumably where all dwarves go when they die. Despite these beliefs being very different from those of the humans, they respect the humans' worshiping of multiple gods.

Their kingdom is ruled by a king. During the time of the Prophecies campaign, their monarch is King Jalis Ironhammer (who speaks with a distinct Russian accent). The dwarves are well-known for their incredible crafting prowess and players can receive some of the best equipment in the game from them.

The dwarven kingdom is very strong, the Deldrimor Army control quite a bit of the Shiverpeak mountains and several major locations, such as Thunderhead Keep and Droknar's Forge. In recent times however, they seem to be losing control of the areas located deeper in the mountains to the wildlife there and the Stone Summit.

Struggle with the Stone Summit[edit]

The Deldrimor Dwarves are in a civil war with the Stone Summit - a group of xenophobic dwarves with a hatred for all races, most notably man, as well as all who help these races (namely the Deldrimor dwarves). Throughout the Prophecies campaign, players help the Deldrimor Dwarves fight off the Stone Summit.

Spoiler alert: The following text contains spoilers relating to the story of Guild Wars Prophecies and Guild Wars Eye of the North.

With the fall of Dagnar Stonepate and Sorrow's Furnace, the Deldrimor Dwarves were able to reign victorious and exile the remaining Stone Summit to the Far Shiverpeaks. There, the Stone Summit attempted to obtain power through various ancient entities. However, all of these attempts were crushed and the Stone Summit are believed to be eliminated with the death of Duncan the Black, the last hierophant.
