Player Warband Recruits (No Quarter Spoilers Again)

After you do the defeat the cache keeper event, you’ll find journals from Charr you recruited into your warband in the personal story. Do they all show up regardless of who you chose/do they go to Dominion no matter what?

Another question is do the journals show up for non Charr players. I know Yahuk’s references you being the dragon champion, and that wouldn’t make much sense if you were playing as a sylvari or other non Charr.

    Yes, sadly they all either joined the Dominion or got killed off before this event.

    The only warband recruits that remain loyal to the Commander is his/her partner from Charr Origins (players will meet them in No Quarter and they will reveal the fate of the Player's Warband after they left to become the Commander) and both Galina Edgecrusher and Snarl Backdraft since these two are members of the Pact.

    The Charr Player partner will not appear for other race origin player characters since it is assumed the Charr Origin partner only live if the Commander is of Charr Origin to prevent their death in Charr Origin prologue.

    Got it, but do the journals still show up for non Charr?

    Source for this statement?

    As far as I can recall the wereabouts of the rest of the charr you recruit through your personal story are not specified, there were only 3 charr from different storylines that swapped sides with the dominion, the rest, like Zemzer, hasn't appeared or have been mentioned at all.

    Years just pass like trains
    I wave but they don't sloow dooown~ don't slow doown~♪

    I think a good portion of the cache keepers were potential warbandmates, but on further inspection it wasn’t all of them

    Only 3 out of all the cache keepers belong to a player's charr character warband, and every one depends on which legion you choose.

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Defeat_the_cache_keeper#Foes

    Iron Legion -> https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Luccia_Wildeye
    Ash Legion -> https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Yahuk_Fellstrike
    Blood Legion -> https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Elexus_Shredskin

    The rest are either fillers, or just minor characters that appeared briefly in your personal story.

    Yeah, they do show up to non charr, kinda like how in the personal storylines all seem to happen with several different “Commanders”. It’s expected that it’s the Charr Commander.

    I’m now imagining several different people in The Departing Path of Fire story truthfully claiming to be the Commander

    Yeah it’s one of those strange paradox that GW2, like all the personal storylines all being completed at the same time roughly...

    I believe it is one of the everything happened but only one became the Commander things like certain RPG stories.

    For example, for Charr origins there was Iron, Blood, and Ash Charr going through the origin storyline but the player Charr is the one with the Warband that has the "partner" in it. The Player's charr is also the one with the most success in their missions where the other two Charrs of the other origins not chosen either died during or right before their final mission in the Origin story or became adventures after due to not becoming noticed by the Orders.

    It is the same for the Order path story. The Commander's Order story and Order mentor are the one who reach the Claw Island while the other two Order Mentors still went through their own Order story but never made it to Claw Island due to being killed by the Orrian Scout. Also our Order mentor only made it to Claw Island because they had the Commander with them.

    It is like with Dragon Age Origins "warden" where all Origin story did happen but only the Player's chosen Warden live past their origins.

    I agree mostly, but I think Yahuk’s journal specifically states his old legionnaire either slayed three elder dragons, or was bonded with Aurene,.
