I wasn't sure whether to post this here, but I need to know. In this episode, we learn that Kralk saw a happy future without its presence and got angry. This indicates that it, at least to some degree, cares about the state of creatures such as humans. This humanization of the elder dragons is distinct from the view of them as forces of nature. Would it be possible to know why and/or when this direction was decided upon? We already had powerful humans to contend with ala Joko and Balthazar, so would it not have been more interesting to have the elder dragons as existences that themselves would barely even register humans in their thoughts? Imagine the feeling of toppling a foe that doesn't even notice you. With Zhaitan, we saw its minions take interest in human affairs, but this was not necessarily indicative of Zhaitan being directly interested(rather, it could have just been hungry). With Mordremoth, we could attribute its human mentality to its connection to the Sylvari. Essentially, they were the poison to end Mordremoth. With this release, however, I don't think there's a way of explaining this away. With this, the elder dragons are just like humans.
