Plural consistency[edit]

A number of recent edits and revisions of edits, so I'll just mention it here rather than try to edit war. "Their main tool of war are the Juggernauts, humans transformed with magic, amber and jade into strange treelike creature." Juggernauts, humans, plural. Creature, singular. Doesn't match. --Nkuvu 23:11, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. -- Gordon Ecker 01:42, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Template[edit]

I think a template for "Decendants of the Humans" would be nice to have. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Tearh (talk).

SPOILER![edit]

How do you add a spoiler tag? It names a certain someone's death. Paddymew 13:22, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Add {{spoiler}}. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 04:43, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Average Human Lifespan on GW[edit]

I would estimate it to be similar to that of real life, yet several things on the wiki wouldn't make sense if it were, such as Doric's page. Does anyone know what the average lifespan of a human is? SkyMan25 01:59, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Maybe Dwayna was responsible for his long lifespan. By the way, the first 31 Canthan Emperors had an average reign of over 52 years. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 08:44, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Should also be noted that Adelbern lives to be about 89 (He is 61 in 1072 AE, and he dies 30 years after the Searing, so would die in 1100 AE, thus 28 years after he is 61=89) when he dies of an unnatural death. So he could have lived longer. Kisu is also 50 (in 1072 AE), and Usoku only takes power in 1127 AE (57 years later), so Kisu would have been 117 when Usoku took power. Though whether that means Kisu's death, his retirement, or if Usoku wasn't allowed power until a certain age (i.e., Kisu died before 1127 AE), isn't known. -- Konig/talk 17:45, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
A new way to figure this out: Asura have 5-10% longer lifespan than humans, and some of the oldest asura are 120 years old, thus some of the oldest humans would be about 114 (5% of 120=6, so 120-6=114). This goes in line with Adelbern's and Kisu's supposed lifespan, which I pointed out above. And of course this doesn't count for unnatural deaths. -- Konig/talk 10:13, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

All signs point to[edit]

... human extinction. Dealing with the dragons may be the peak of the age of heroes, and then we start falling into the lame ages where the gods get bored and are destroyed by science and then all the other critters of the world smoosh us because myth is dead unless we get some epic fantasy traits like CHAKRA (see: chakra, not chakra or ETERNAL SOULS LIKE PLATO TALKED ABOUT WANDERING FOREVER IN IMMATERIAL REALMS AND REMEMBERING COOL STUFF LIKE SQUARES AND CIRCLES or whatever or something like that!

Re-working notes.[edit]

Since the summary is too small in character limit, I'd like to say: The culture section could be expanded, but I'm not sure what to add, since 90-ish% of what we know in GW1 is revolved around humans/human interaction/human views. I reworked the groups section into just the nations and added international groups along with that, so that we don't get 100+ sections about each individual group, large and small, which have their own pages. Lastly, I wanted to add more images, but I couldn't find any good concept art, and I just like concept art and refuse to put screenshots or renders (outside of template infoboxes for the later) myself. -- Konig/talk 06:53, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Outcasts?[edit]

Should they be included in the list? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 141.154.33.163 (talk).

I removed their entry when I reworked this article because they're not a nation. They are merely insane or exiled (or both) Luxons. Outcasts=Luxons and Luxons are up there. Same reason why I removed the various guilds, groups, and factions (i.e., Lionguard, Shining Blade, White Mantle, Seraph, Peacekeeper, Cult of Verata, and Ascalon Settlement sub-section of the Kryta section) except the international guilds. Basically, it seems more reasonable to list nations, not groups, except for the groups not held to nations. -- Konig/talk 18:57, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

are no horses on Tyria[edit]

So how could first emperor of Cantha be known for riding them? Ramei Arashi 04:23, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Because An Empire Divided says he was. Meaning that they Do exist... In lore. There's at least a dozen mentions of them... Like Necrid Horseman. -- Konig/talk 04:30, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Just wait till the year of the horse in cantha.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 01:11, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
If they existed we wouldn't have to walk everywhere. Ramei Arashi 01:51, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
That's mounts - they exist in lore, and this should be enough proof for that. However, there are no mounts in the game. And there's no need to either, because we don't have to "walk everywhere" - thanks to this. And it'll be the same in gw2. -- Konig/talk 02:59, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Spoilers?[edit]

Shouldn't there be a spoiler tag on this? "...as they were brought there by the Six Gods.", Players don't learn about Abaddon without Nightfall so to anyone who has only played Proph will end up having a plot point spoiled. Granted im nit-picking here but i think it makes more sense to either put a spoiler tag or (prefebly) re-word the link to one of the gods other names (Maybe Gods of Tyria as the artical is called). MorazaDarkheart 23:26, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Abaddon's known about pretty early in the game of Nightfall (third mission, and he's brought up, without his name, in the Nightfall manual. So it isn't a spoiler to nightfall. It has no influence on the story to Factions or Prophecies and none to Eye of the North or Beyond. So no, it isn't a spoiler. Gods of Tyria is, imo, a poor name to use in articles and is only used as the article name due to there being so many titles to them. -- Konig/talk 00:24, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
