    I hoped for some UW content with UW mount and then Cantha as an expansion. Again... same old boring Tyria, we had like tons of snowy zones. It's just so boring. I wanna see some other cultural influence.

    Fun speculation! I'd love to go up north again or to Charr homelands. I'd also like to explore further east which we've never seen before.

    I think this along with other things I've read confirms a Norn centered story or at least some of it. Recently there was a question asked to the devs why the Norns like Braham and Eir never shape shifted during the story. A Dev replied that this is something that is being talked about currently and is may be used in the future. I don't have the link on that discussion but I know I read it in these forums some place. It may have been the recent Q&A.

    So we are heading north huh?..... So that is where Scarlet has been hiding :relieved:

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    No Inquest, those asura are becoming blue when exposed to the cold just like the gate monitor in hoelbrak :lol:
    Through, underground.... they are crazy but not at a point of dying, that's why there are 0 of them in mordremoth domain.
    Long time we haven't seen the three other colleges or peacemakers.

    Good stuff. We pretty much knew snowy maps were coming from that email teaser and as a fan of wintry landscapes, this might regain my interest again

    Okay so according to the wiki under current dragonrise they show primordius and jormag as dormant, but the sea dragon as AWAKE. This is all very confusing, on the one hand we have what looks like snow and def a pair of icy or water type eyes in there. We have these norn travelers speaking of jormag, and the whispers. OTOH we show that the only dragon awake is the sea dragon. I wonder if anet is pulling a blizzard and trying to throw us off the trail with fake clues lol

    Svanir too became Nornbear by hearing/obeying whispers (by Jormags champion), perhaps it's a reference too that, in which case its true story is going North, or perhaps it's a teaser that Commander is going crazy. Would be quite cool having the story wrapped up as becoming a villain.

    All we have is a snow scene. The seeing of eyes are likely a form of pareidolia

    The Sea Dragon is awake, but far, far away. I am unconvinced they will bring it into the plot ever, but if the do, it needs a good reason to come to us since it is probably quite happy in its domain, soaking up on ley lines.

    Primordus and Jormag were put back to "pre-awakened state" in LS3 - they were both awake and active until quite recently. As we saw with Mordremoth, it is possible Jormag is trying to rise again by summoning a herald or his armies are pulling together before his fully reawakens. Being that both are situated close by compared to the DSD, it makes sense they or one of, are next to be brought into the story.

    And don't forget Kralk's call to "mother". More likely something we know versus not know but still as they said in the other thread on writing, everything has a purpose. Maybe not now but...

    So Jormag is Kralk's mother, certainly fits considering the female whispers. I'd be thrilled to have a far shiverpeaks expansion i personally love the snowy areas and mountains.

    Some very creepy wind;

    This is giving off some pennywise vibes especially at the end the way it gets deeper

    What if we go North and find Jormag is dead and something else is calling to us.

  • Well this is a big meh.. like.. we have deep see dragon that is active for years now, we have Cantha with it's political story line, we have Ascalonian Ghosts & Logan becoming the king of Ascalon arc, we have a possible war with Charr race since Blood Legion Imperator is a kitten that hates humans and was displeased with the treaty, we could have something of new worlds and return of human gods thanks to all the mists portals, we could have some sort of "New Age" arc mix of technology and new type of magic thanks to Aurene.
    But we go with Jormag..? The dragon that we've put to sleep? What? Like why? This better has some super good explanation, people are escaping to other MMO's almost nobody is doing boss blitz this year, we need something that will be a game changer. Unless ANet is trying to pull a Blizzard and play the nostalgia vibe with Eye of the North and stuff, but still I feel like Cantha would be bigger here. And why have some Suspicious Traveler instead of Sons of Svanir? I'm also curious why release this small hype stuff now instead of 27th which would be right before big announcement event. I guess they want to make sure that more people will hear about it.
    Still I'm super confused now, I've been with this game(s) world for almost 14 years now, but I feel like that "brain trick" that makes you play no matter what because of nostalgia and all this time I invested is slowly running out. I need something big or new to keep me invested and I'm not sure Jormag&Primordus arc is gonna do it.
    I'll wait and see what ANet is gonna show us on 30th, I am hopeful, this going Jormag arc is kinda meh but I'll admit that I like this whole whispering stuff, creepy and mysterious. I wonder if it is truly Jormag or someone is playing with Norns? Some powerful shaman? Lyssa could always be a thing if ANet wants it to be but then again why would Lyssa consider herself with Norns.. oh well, nothing left but to wait for the big event.

    Kralkattorik is dead and he released ley-line energy, it created a shockwave in the network awakening the others, just like with the breachmaker imho.
    About the voices I think it's the gift of Aurene since she upgraded into ultra-necrozma: maybe we are able to hear dragons through her.

    There are at least 2 separate entities speaking, one female one male in voice. That final part they both speak together.. You are safe. Do you want to survive? Come closer.
    Are they speaking to us or to each other over a vast distance. Or are they speaking to their own. Are they dragons like the DSD and Jormag talking to each other over a long distance on the wind, trying to join forces and ..We are stronger together? Or is it some other entity we have not seen before, something very powerful. Im not that familiar with the gw world, is there something in this world that has the power of dragons but isnt a dragon? Maybe an even older power than either dragon or god.

    We know there is at least one female elder dragon, that is Aurene. I think the DSD is a female.

    I don't want to hype you up or down, but to me if they were to announce the next Expac it would make sense to be at the beginning or ending of a LS season. So going with exactly what they said for now and this is a discussion on the direction of the living story and set the bar there. As far as is this Jormag, going with some of the NPC quotes where non-Sons Of Svanir were asking SoS to open their eyes and that they can hear a dragon, that makes me wonder is a different dragon versus Jormag.

    Yeah you're probably right with the expac, they could do something like Blizzard when they teased 8.3 on last BlizzCon for 5 seconds and then said nothing about it. So just inform us that expac IS coming. But I guess they'll focus on season 5 and if NCSoft words are true a mobile project.
    About the Jormag vs another one, the obvious answer would be Primordus. We know thanks to S3 that to kill one you need another, that they are linked. And if thanks to Kralkatorrik's death some magic went out because Aurene could not "eat" it all then that could wake both of them. Someone here said that they hear 2 voices, one female and one male. What if Jormag is a female, Primordus male and because of the events that happened in season 3 they know that mortal races can do something [the machine] to kill them, so one might be trying to kill another because if I understood it right their lives are NOT linked, just their magics, in a way that they counter one another. And if there is no Primordus lets say, Jormag would be a lot safer.. unless we'll go with something like other Elder Dragons ate some of Primordus magic aspect and could kill Jormag. But that's a whole other conversation I think.
    Still the event on 30th seems to be special so I hope ANet will blow me away, even with S5.

    I'd like to see us go back to the Eye of the North with a full map.

    That would mean exploring the Charr more, which i doubt. i will hope, but i really doubt it. Still it would be great to see a map near the Eye of the North.

    A new Charr themed dye pack just came out. I wouldn't pass the idea off so easily.

    I think it would be amusing if they dropped a stealth upgrade to the Eye of the North map we have access to by making it a full map and non-instanced so we can use mounts to get out of the structure. Let players discover the change.

    Honestly I would prefer if no mounts were present in S5 zones. I am the minority but I couldn't care less about the mounts.

    Refreshing EotN would be crazy though.

    Oh noes... Not Jormag. Bleh. Perhaps we will be spared dealing with him and the story will instead circulate around the Sons of Jormag, their cult, and how we can bring it down.

  • @Danikat.8537 said:
    This reminds me of the very beginning of Season 1 (which wasn't a season at the time) when we started finding refugees coming into Hoelbrak and the Black Citadel from more remote parts of the Shiverpeaks. Definitely looks like forshadowing of Season 5, and like Jormag will be involved.

    @Aeon.4583 said:
    There was a time when i mentioned that there was no evidence that Elder dragons can go full war on each other. Nothing in Guild Wars lore about it so far.

    And after hearing this i wonder if this will be a Steve(Bubbles) vs Jormag conflict?
    I always thought that Jormag is male, since most of the Elder dragons are males, and Jormag sounds male-ish (oO).
    But we still have no info about Deep Sea Dragon, who actually can be a female. Voices from the around Traveler belong to female, but one weak and very silent voice that says: Closer - seems to be male's voice ( 6:26 youtube video from above, sounds like a warning of someone coming ).

    Deep Sea Dragon have water as his\hers area of influence (possibly?), while Jormag has Ice ( same thing as water, but only under sub-zero conditions ). We know that Jormag were severely weakened by Balthazar's actions, alongside Primordus. If Deep Sea dragon is trying to overtake Jormag's area of influence and overtake him aswell, that could mean Elder Dragon's war.
    Female voice says: They will betray you - Deep Sea Dragon telling Jormag that Svanirs will be overtaken? oO
    Again female voice says: You are stronger with me - trying to convince Jormag to submit?

    Will be fun turn-turn-turn if we will have to side with one of them =)

    Do we know most of the Elder Dragons are male? I seem to remember Aurene called Kralkatorrik 'grandfather' which implies Kralk was male, but I can't remember any mention of a gender for any of the others. (And given he was at least part plant Mordremoth could be male, female, both, neither or something only botanists have a word for.)

    Admittedly it would cause a lot of problems for the Sons of Svanir if Jormag isn't male, but that on it's own could be a reason for Anet to go down that route.

    Elder Dragons have been treated as gender neutral overall. The explanation from devs being that their genders are "beyond Tyrian understanding" or some such. Male nouns are often used just because that's the typical case for the English language for centuries; Kralkatorrik and Jormag are the only ones actually ascribed a gender, and the latter is done solely by the Sons of Svanir who are misogynists. Mordremoth has a male voice actor but as you say, that doesn't really mean much.

    Personally I wouldn't be surprised if the Elder Dragons' group of species are single-sexed, as that would explain the lack of mention of a father for Aurene/Vlast, or mother for Glint. If Elder Dragons just take masculinity/femininity as it suits their personality rather than actually being male or female.

    The Eye of the North is in the Far Shiverpeaks. It has nothing to do with the charr, nor do we need to cross charr lands to get there.

    Though to be honest, until Dragon Bash, they had been building up a lot of charr hints slowly throughout Season 4. So I had been suspecting a charr plot more than a Jormag one. It wouldn't surprise me if they decide to double up the plots since they did that with Seasons 3 and 4. Sadly, that meant the plots couldn't get proper exposure (they all felt like they were missing one or two episodes to their length). But par the course, right?

    Jormag and Primordus were put back to sleep during Season 3.

    In Season 2 - and again in Heart of Thorns - we were subtly exposed to the order of the Elder Dragons' awakening. Primordus -> DSD -> Jormag -> Zhaitan -> Kralkatorrik -> Mordremoth. This means the DSD has been awake for 150-200 years, but very far away that it doesn't influence Central Tyria.

    Just because Jormag and Primordus were put back into a dormant state, doesn't mean their threat is gone. The Sons of Svanir, Icebrood, and destroyers are all still active and dangerous (as we saw with destroyers in Desert Highlands of PoF). We were given a very heavy implication that Season 5 won't be a "world threatening plot" which in of itself implies it won't directly deal with an Elder Dragon. Having the plot be about preventing Jormag from rising again seems sensible.

    Moving to absorb the magic of multiple dead Elder Dragons and a god is a pretty good reason, imo. One they can literally use any time.

    In the War Eternal Guild Chat, they said that line and others won't have payoff for years to come. It's a "far distant plot". Probably planned for after dealing with the remaining three Elder Dragons.

    Except that Aurene absorbed Kralaktorrik's released magic. Unless she didn't absorb the magic Kralk gained from Balthazar, Zhaitan, and Mordremoth. Though that seems rather unlikely.

    That was audio leftover from Halloween that didn't get removed with Halloween (happens from time to time). It wasn't an active teaser (something they've done before, like the corpses near UW portals leading up to Hall of Chains, or the illusion forming and deforestation in Kessex Hills during 2013's Halloween leading to Tower of Nightmares).

    Well i went and listened the best place seems to be wayfarer for the clarity. Durmand priory has too much background noise from the asura gate. But you can still get a good sound of them if you move away alittle. So yeah turn all game sounds to zero, everything, then turn master volume all the way up, and environmental volume all the way up. You can def hear 2 different voices and the male voice you can actually make out closer closer. The other voice is really hard to make out whats being said, but its def saying something, and it is creepy. I love this kind of stuff lol. The creepier the better imo, nice foreshadowing anet, i dont know how someone found this but good job.

    Maybe the whispers are from 'Mother'... Maybe the elder dragons were put in place by someone/thing-else to absorb the magic to prevent 'Mother' from awakening...

  • In my opinion I think It looks to me like the LW episodes will involve the plot to wake Jormag and Primordus which we will attempt to stop which will lead up to the expansion containing the dragons. This will be followed by LW6 which will lead to the Cantha and Bubbles expansion.

    My concern is that we were told LWS5 would be a respite from dealing with Elder Dragons. And now it looks like that won't be the case. :/

    I was expecting "not a world ending threat" in this coming season means no dragons and hopefully something more personal.

    Exactly!

    It was not.

    What would make the expansion more intresting is to have both Malygos (Jormag) and Deathwing (Primordus) as main villians in the same story. A fire and ice themed expansion is something that can be unique in the MMO genre and can potentially offer a very intresting scenario if done right.

    Aesthetics would be awesome too (Icelandic Volcanic Eruptions anyone?) Though personally I've always seen the Elder Dragons as being more Old God'ish what with the corrupting and especially now with the 'whispers' aka

    The Old Gods Elder Dragons are keeping Azeroth Mother the World asleep in balance by eating all the Azerite magical energy because if it wakes up becomes unbalanced the entire world is DOOMED!

    I thought it could have been sea spray/foamy waves too, not necessarily snow. Either way, I'm interested to find out more! :)

    Yes, they did. I wish I could find that dev comment/thread... hmph.
