How about mentioning that she is the narratior for Prophicies??71.169.66.139 09:12, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Prophecies henchmen with no interupts?[edit]

i took an all henchy team to face glint and i couldnt kill her...prophecy henchmen have no freaking interupts!!!! I even tried flaging them around till crystal hidernation wore off, but she regenerates too fast in that time. In the end i had to give up and had to get henchemen killed...which was almost as impossible...I spent 3-5min flaging my henchmen around to get them killed but with alesia and lina its tough. You need to be able to interupt this skill if you want to do this with henchmen only!--Justice 08:33, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Dropped items[edit]

i've added the topaz crest as an item dropped by Glint. i have a screenshot to prove, in case someone has doubts.

Scepter of Orr[edit]

Where is proofed information regarding Glint's handling of the scepter? "...a vision of her appears to congratulate the players and whisk the Scepter of Orr off to an unknown location." I don't recall Glint being specifically shown to do this, I thought it just disappeared due to an unrevealed plot line. Am I missing something?

In the EotN end cinematic Livia finds Sceptre of Orr 85.131.56.2 12:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
And that's solid support for her whisking it off? I don't think so. Gmr Leon 22:36, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Knockdown[edit]

Can you knock Glint down, to interrupt her Crystal Hibernation ? Asrael 18:01, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

I dont believe you can MystiLefemEle 09:55, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Pretty sure like other dragons Glint cannot be KD'd. I never really tried just assumed she couldn't. But if the game does consider her "dragon" then she cannot be KD'd Nay the One and Only User Nay the One and Only SIG.jpg 00:28, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

glints eggs[edit]

if there's all these eggs around then shouldn't there be a male dragon somewhere?

There is. It's the Ancient dragons. Warning - it's a spoiler to GWEN. God, I keep forgetting to sign. I actually forgot to sign in. I'm so stupid. Mechu95 18:12, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
About 70 species of vertebrates are able to reproduce themselves without mating. This includes some lizards, so I guess Glint wouldn't need a male dragon to create viable offspring. --Arduinna talk 12:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
where's the fun in that? 92.238.76.95 14:42, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
As far as we know, there is no mate. So Arduinna would be accurate. And Glint isn't related - in any shape or form - to the Ancient Dragons. >_< Primordus is not Glint's dad, and one of them is not her mate. >_< It was stated that there is no connection, so why don't people get this? *sigh* -- Azazel The Assassin\talk 22:01, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Where was that stated? Glint and Kuunavang are called youths and lesser powers to the ancient dragons in the PCGamer "Ultimate Guild Wars Guide" issue. That Sounds Risky | 22:48, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
"As different from the Ancient Dragons as night and day" - i.e., they are too dissimilar, and would highly imply no connection. Especially a relationship. -- Azazel The Assassin\talk 23:01, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Put in a poetical way, night and day could be lovers chasing each other around the globe, so... Paddymew 09:53, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

I.... highly doubt that's what it meant. It's written as a document, not a poem. -- Azazel The Assassin\talk 11:50, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

There are plenty of other dragons flying around Cantha, so why would we not assume there are some like Glint in areas we cannot access. Or maybe she and Kuunavang went partying one night.... Nay the One and Only User Nay the One and Only SIG.jpg 00:30, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Kuunavang is female... --'Mai Yi' talk 14:58, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

LOL[edit]

Ok i was just doing glints challenge plus bonus in HM for guardian title, didnt read up on it before so had no interrupts, i took a sabway team, alesia, reyna, claude and lina with me a warrior with hundred blades (yes deffo didnt read up - jagged crystal skin :S) actually managed to complete all the tests, took glints egg and started the fight, got her down to about 1/3rd health and she started using her heal, which kept healing all the damage we did, fought for about 5 minutes until i decided it was a stalemate. I still wanted the mission without bonus so i decided i would just let her kill me, so i stopped attacking and disabled all my heroes skills, she wouldnt kill us so i was about to resign when i noticed that her health was slowly dropping, so kept attacking and she finally went down, i reckon because the hench wanding more because they werent stopping to cast useless at the time spells like death nova and dwayna's sorrow so the party DPS went up slightly, if anyone ever finds themself in the same position as me (you wont if you are reading wiki, like i didnt) just disable all hero skills and let them pound away at her.

and yes yes i know, "cool story bro" sorry, i ramble on. Shogun 00:41, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

That's funny, because I took a Hundred Blades war in with a sabway team and henchmen and I dominated her in HM. Didn't have the ranger henchman either. PariahUser Pariah Pariahmoa.pngtalk 04:24, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

GW2 Info[edit]

Pulling this out of main because it looks like it's been thrown in haphazardly.

===Glint in Guild Wars 2===
Her future is currently unknown in GW2. In Eye of the North it turns out that she is in fact not the oldest thing on Tyria.

This was me, at 22:40 29 April --Star Weaver 16:32, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Can Kill with timing.[edit]

Made the mistake of trying Glint with no interupts. After about 15 minutes I (when I was ready to give up, Then I noticed that we were the ones healing her for about 12 out of every 20 seconds or so. So I only used skills that gave instant damage (Had 2 plus assassin) it took about 30 minutes to kill her. If you attack at the wrong time you are just healing her...GL or Just bring an Interupt LOL. But This also works to make the kill faster if an interupt misses.

First Tyrian Creature[edit]

"She was the first creature placed on the continent of Tyria by the gods to oversee the new world."

Where did this information come from? Anybody got a source? --Ravious 16:38, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

The Ghostly Hero in Amnoon Oasis. -- 99.199.190.224 03:02, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Apparently glint's the oldest creature even though the ancient dragons have been asleep longer than her in tyria? wtf. 24.233.254.51 03:11, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
It is stated that the current pantheon arrived in Tyria, they did not create the world; so once they shaped the world, they put Glint and later The Forgotten. She is the oldest creature put by The Six. --talk Large 17:42, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
GLINT SMALL TIME. KRALKATORIK SMASH INTO SAND PARTICLES. GRAHAHAHA. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ аІiсә & ѕνәи Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

Glint for 5th year green mini[edit]

We wanted her for 3rd year, we wanted her for 4th year, it's about damn time they give us Glint for 5th year, I dont think waiting til 2012 for another damn dragon mini is what any of us want. --Skekzyz 07:39, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

GW2[edit]

somone want to add the box saying that GW2wiki has an article on glint? im not sure how to Victor6267 User_Victor6267_Roaring_Taco_Black_Moa_Chick.png 01:03, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

there ya go Victor! --Dragon7 cape emblem.pngThe Holy Dragons 01:06, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Her..[edit]

Relationship has been establish with the Eldar dragon's.. What needs to be added/removed from the page about this? [[1]] 90.200.54.222 14:42, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

I don't think anything does. This is the gw1 wiki, not the gw2wiki. Though perhaps an addition to the information about what we know of Glint coming from herself and she has her reasons for telling the races of Tyria what she knows, with a reference tag to the interview where Jeff Grubb said that. The last sentence could use re-wording, perhaps to "Her connection to the Elder Dragons is revealed in Edge of Destiny and the Movement..." -- Konig/talk 20:04, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Looks good, just though it needed updating a little bit :) 90.200.54.222 21:09, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Creation[edit]

On this wiki it says that she was created by the gods, but on GW2W it says that people say she was created by the gods, meaning she might not. Clarification? - Giant Nuker 20:31, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

It's still not explicitly stated who created her, but she was at the very least a champion of Kralkatorrik. It should note that this wiki makes two statements about her origin:
"However, all that is known about Glint comes from herself, and it has been stated that she has her reasons for saying what she has." and "Her connection with the Elder Dragons is revealed in Edge of Destiny, the second Guild Wars novel. The Movement of the World has stated that she and Kuunavang are as different to them as night and day."
Going to clarify it though. -- Konig/talk 21:10, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Rewrite[edit]

Ok not too bad you two lore followers. It could do with a section or a line detailing that she is fought during the bonus of The Dragon's Lair, and I'm wondering where the disambig to the Vision of Glint went. (could be humourous such as "despite the best intentions of the player to kill Glint during the bonus of the dragon's lair.." - but I'll leave that to you.) -Chieftain Alex 17:51, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

k I see you've buried the vision of glint link in the text... I'd still keep the disambig. -Chieftain Alex 17:52, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree. But I wouldn't want to spark an argument with Santax if avoidable. Not intending to be offensive (but may be taken as such), but even my attempt of collaboration on the Abaddon article turned into a mini-shoutfest. So I'm only touching what I feel should be altered immediately. Konig 18:34, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
I've probably mashed the grammar and the emdashes, but the general content is present + correct. -Chieftain Alex 20:23, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
