Sounds like Blizzard ripped off this, --Miteshu 20:31, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Cataclysm, where an ancient foe (dragon) awakens and shakes the foundations of the very earth, causing destruction across the land and forcing many species to the verge of extinction. Blizzard fucking ripped the whole of Guild Wars 2 off. World of Ripoffcraft more like.


The article makes it sound like the Vizer made the change before the even happened but gameplay and quests seem to imply that his conversion to worship Abaddon only happened after his sentencing to the Realm of Torment~~ trying to find a clarification --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

To the best of my recollection, Razakel was the one in contact with the Vizer. The latter likely did not know who was pulling the strings until he was sentenced to the Realm of Torment. G R E E N E R 06:01, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I know, it's just that the very last sentence is this article seems poorly worded: "Khilbron, having converted to the worship of Abaddon, used the chaos of the invasion to gain access to the Lost Scrolls and carry out his god's will. " I mean, I can understand the chaos of the invasion enabling him to get to the scrolls and use them, but it does not seem likely that at the time of the event he was worshiping Abaddon. (Actually, nevermind did some digging and found that quests given by the Wandering Soul explains the last line, though the article could represent this better) ~ Editing my own post :P

The Charr[edit]

I always had this question in Mind. How long did the Charr take to travel from Ascalon to Orr on foot? Because I find it impossible for the Charr in 2 years to Destroy Ascalon, crossing the Mountains, & Crossing the Desert while still having enough strength to invade Orr --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 07:33, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Around a year - Searing happened in 1070, Cataclysm in 1071, and they had to destroy the Wall first. The group that went to Orr went through Ascalon, using the initial chaos of the Searing to meet minimal resistance, while others remained (I believe this was said, at least). Traveling from Ebonhawke to Ascalon City is roughly 3 days travel on foot with minimal rest, so months to go from the Wall to the center of Orr is not far fetched if the group that went to Orr didn't stay to continue battling Ascalonians like the rest.
