Meaning of the word[edit]

Anyone knows what the word "komalie" actually means? I don't think it is just a made up word, because Lacuna Coil (no advertising) has an album called "Comalies" . the two word resemble each other very much, so i am pretty sure it has some kind of mythological, or other significance, although i cannot find it in any dictionaries, neither on wiki.--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

The actual name is probably a re-lettered version of an existing word, but in game lore, it's unsure what it is. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a re-lettered word of Hell in Greek or Latin *saying those two because Titan names are Latin and Mursaat names are mostly Greek* Could also be Arabiac *which is what most Orrian Undead names are*. -- Azazel The Assassin\talk 03:56, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Komali" is an Indian name meaning approximately "delicate/tender". The Comaile River, pronounced and sometimes spelled "Komalie", is an ancient river in Eritrea, i.e. a country in the Middle East. "Komali" is also a Japanese word, and can be seen in one case in the character Prince Komali from the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Google searches of "Komalie" or variations find a few pages of Guild Wars stuff, then people's social networking pages with the first name.
Conclusion: it's an east/south Asian name. | 72 {U|T|C} - 02:29, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Closed, yet no more sacrifices?[edit]

If we killed the mursaat and destroyed the white mantle, no one is killing chosen on the bloodstone anymore, right? So what is keeping the door closed/the bloodstone powered?--User Cyberman Mastermind Sig.gif Cyberman 08:55, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

NOTHING! There may be a Titan under your bed even as you read this! Seriously, I have no idea. This also bothers me a lot. All titans couldn't be destroyed since they still exist in the Domain of Anguish. So what's keeping them there?
Maybe the Door has some sort of recharge time before it can be opened again, since we opened and closed it shortly after. Paddymew 10:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
How long does a Lich brand battery last? Find out in 250 years. 10:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
If only sacrifices weren't needed for the next 80 years, after which the Ancient Dragons awoke, IIRC, no problem there. If they wanted it, I think they could just kill all titans through the Door of Komalie with a single spell. Paddymew 07:13, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Abbadon is 'replaced' by the useless Kormir, so Titans can no longer pass through the door. Reaper of Scythes** User Reaper of Scythes Juggernaut1.png 20:59, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
yeah but when kormir becomes a god isn't that a time later in the game?
people that are farming Domain of Anguish are keeping the titans at bay for now :) timmyderselts
My vote is that, since we kill the Lich on top of it, thereby 'sacrificing HIM', the battery is charged for quite some time. But we know he isn't locked into the batteries but rather pulled through the door to Torment, and maybe I am remembering wrong, but aren't there a few other Torment npcs that mention being sacrificed by the Mursaat? If there are, maybe the door never actually NEEDED charging, and it was just a clever ploy by Abaddon to get a powerful minion dropped into his lap. Convince the Mursaat that bad things will happen if they don't pitch souls to the stones, give Glint her Flameseeker Prophecy, and wait for his first new minion in a few centuries to stop by. 06:05, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) "aren't there a few other Torment npcs that mention being sacrificed by the Mursaat" No. Khilbron is the only one linked, in any form, to the mursaat that's in the Realm of Torment. And I doubt that the mursaat would be tricked about their own devices (the soul batteries and the Door of Komalie are made of the same material as every structure and device they use). And it was Glint, btw, who compiled the Flameseeker Prophecies, and Rurik who said to kill Khilbron on the bloodstone. There's nothing to say Abaddon was connected to the events of Prophecies outside influencing the charr and Khilbron making the Cataclysm (and just the Cataclysm). -- Konig/talk 12:36, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

After the Mursaat defeat, the door lock was replaced with an Infinite Improbability Drive. To keep it locked, Kormir keeps reading it the story line to Guild Wars. 17:44, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
What I understood from Jacob Salinger's dialogue was that the Chosen were trapped inside the Foundry, some of them eventually going quite mad. Titans, from what I've gathered, are hybrid monsters similar to demons but created by torturing souls in some abhorrent refinement process in the Foundry of Failed Creations. Since the Lich is found in the realm of torment, it's reasonable to assume that dying on the bloodstone sends you to the Realm of Torment, which means the Chosen were being used as raw materials in the Titan construction process. When the door popped open, the Titans ran out like it was Pennywise's clown car. The lich has like five thousand health points (and no armor at all), so he counts for a whole crapload of those level 10 chosen, who only have 280. This recharged the batteries to keep anything else from coming through, but the ones who got out stayed out, as evident by the Glint quests. If the batteries "weaken" over time, it's possible that the two or three years that passed wasn't long enough to blast open the seal completely, since the number of Titans left in the partyboat was substantially reduced. By the time Varesh started sacrificing people in those grisly off-screen rituals, the players were almost in the Realm of Torment anyway, and the new Titans didn't get out before Abaddon died. After Mallyx was defeated, I'd assume that useless skank shut the place down and it became a moot point. I liked Mallyx, he was adorable and frightening. Why couldn't we have helped him? –Jette 18:59, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
We couldn't have because ANet made Nightfall in six months. :> I don't have a link, but one of the story team said that they originally wanted us to redeem Abaddon (Which makes the "Redeemed Realm" a name that makes sense), instead of kill him, but they didn't have the time. Also, what "grisy off-screen rituals" are you referring to? I don't remember seeing any mention of those. - AdarkTheCoder 17:52, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
That was Jeff Grubb during the 3 years of Guild Wars PAX panel Q&A, a 6 part video of that can be found on ANet's YouTube. But the reason wasn't time. It was because that's the story which was needed or something of that sort. The issue for NF mentioned in those videos that arose due to time was the lack of CG trailer.
As to the rituals - watch the cinematics prior to the Grand Court of Sebelkeh mission, it features one of them - the priests of Lyssa were all brutally slaughtered and the Blasphemy left to open rifts.Konig/talk 04:33, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
