I was watching a older video of Wooden Potatos on youtube absolutely love his stuff. However something stuck out to me, So we know there are 2 gods, or 1 god and a half god in the Fissure of Woe, who are fighting against each other. We have the Shadow army led by Menzies and the Eternal army led my Balthazar.
However Menzies is known as the Deceiver and that's how he had even gained control over some of those towers in FoW. I bring this up because Balthazar who was a Righteous god who embraced the thrill of battle and the glory of battle does some pretty out of character things such as impersonating lazarus how....Deceptive... WHAT if the real Balthazar had been tricked in the FoW and is now sitting in chains there and the reason the other gods had decided Balthazar needed chained up in the mists due to his out of character actions was really Menzies impersonating Balthazar? it would explain how Balthazar the god of war is so easily defeated... I know that Abaddon was also killed by the player and stuff to but I mean Balthazar is and was considered one of the strongest gods. I think this could be an easy plot twist to set up an introduction to FoW in gw2 which I would absolutely love let me know what you think of this theory!
