"Rurik uses the sword Sohothin as his weapon" - Huh? User-brains12-scale-sig.png brains12 21:25, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

That comes from the PCGamer article about GW2. Rurik's old Flame Dragon Sword has been named, just as his father's sword. Erasculio 22:09, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

wasnt his old flame lady Althea? maybe sohothin was his mistress ;-) --Justice 17:34, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Make him a W/R[edit]

And give him a a pet that talks so he can shout stuff like

"Help Rurik is rushing into a mob!" or "Rurik why are you being such a dumb shit and running solo into a mob??" and he would even soak up some of the damage lol

Maybe it could even be a unique pet none of us can get just to piss us off more

Hundred Blades[edit]

I'm sure i saw him using it in Pre --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 08:39, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

If it's true, cause I never did, it's weird :).--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Necro Shea Mo (talk).
Yeah, he does, I've seen it. Nothing special though.- TheRave talk (talk) 17:12, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Cold Steel[edit]

  • Prince Rurik wields a firey sword, so what could "Taste cold steel!" possibly mean? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 12:13, June 28, 2008 (UTC). (It was added to the main page but was probably meant to be a question for discussion.)

Sohothin, Rurik'sword, is a sword with the skin of a Fiery Dragon Sword, but it deals physical dmg. Although i highly doubt that it was intentional. What I think is that it's an oversight went right :P --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 21:47, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Would be interesting if they brought back Rurik for GW2 as the new ghostly hero for PVP battles. Dero Ahmonati 23:43, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Or if he, Turai Ossa and some other dead guy were ghostly heroes representing the different teams. Paddymew 09:10, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Turai Ossa, Master Togo, and Prince Rurik!

Prince Rurik Music trivia[edit]

In de guildwars.ds Jeremy Soule has added a question.

  1. Extra bonus points if you can find where this is played in the game.

I asked Regina, but she does not know it. Ok heres the challenge...who knows the aswer? Didis 23:00, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Wizard's Folly if I'm correct. --Arduinna talk 17:28, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Prince Rurik's armor rewarded[edit]

Prince Rurik's (Royal) armor should be rewarded to people who have reached the Legendary Defender of Ascalon title, as to be a thing to make up for countless hours of deathleveling.

Kalizar 03:48, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Rather than that, Rurik himself should be a max armor crafter in Ascalon that will only give the craft option to LDoAs. Max armor with special skins ofc :) Paddymew 09:08, 16 May 2009 (UTC)


Whenever I play through prophecies, I can't wait for Rurik to SPOILER becuase he is by far the most irritating NPC in the game.

lol noone cares dude.-- 16:01, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
How about leecher?--TeaCat._. User RedTeaCat TeaCat.jpg 16:16, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

"Vael was apparently with Rurick when he died. He broke the news to the King"[edit]

Huh? Where'd that come from? Not all that "apparent" to me. User Rose Of Kali SIG.jpgRose Of Kali 14:27, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

It's one of his random quotes. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 14:30, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
"I was one of the soldiers with Rurik when he was slain by the Stone Summit. In fact, I was the one to break the sad news to the king." A random idle quote from Vael. -- Konig/talk 17:40, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I already amended the note here to reflect that clearly. User Rose Of Kali SIG.jpgRose Of Kali 20:20, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
I guess he was one of Rurik's Personal guards during the frost gate. if you remember Rurik is fighting the summit alongside 2 soldiers MarioDX 12:55, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

His name[edit]

Is his surname Rurik, or something else that is unknown?

I don't think Rurik or his father have surnames. Which wouldn't be entirely abnormal for ancient royalty. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 18:26, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Supposedly, all royalty (even Adelbern despite being "elected" instead of "inheriting" the throne) are descended from King Doric. Perhaps Doric is the last name? :p -- Konig/talk 19:02, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Lol Rurik Doric? I would be inclined to say something like "Rurik of Ascalon" when in dire need of a surname for him. User Rose Of Kali SIG.jpgRose Of Kali 02:17, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

I know this isn't adding much to the discussion, but that is the Perfect character name! :] Stroggs 03:20, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Rurik is Awesome[edit]

Does anyone else agree that he is one of the few cool, interesting and not lame NPCs in the game? Too bad he had to be all chivalrous and SPOILER... AboveAverageJoe 23:26, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't. He's annoying, tends to over extend, and has a 'stache. That's not cool. --talk Large 01:20, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
He might be cool if he wore a bow-tie. Or perhaps a fez. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 04:21, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Meh, he's a typical template character. Hardly anything unique about him, tbh. Konig/talk 04:55, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
What TEF said. >.> -- User Elveh sig.png Elv 18:06, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
