Season 5 - Rise of Aurene (No direct contact with any Elder Dragon yet, they will fool us)

  • Aurene's weakness will be the commander and Caithe
  • Dragons will team up against Aurene's champions to destroy her
  • Deep Sea Dragon and Jormag try to persuade Aurene, we will betray her, and she can only be powerful with them
  • Glint tries to comfort her (You are safe)
  • Mother is in fact Tyria (like obviously)
  • No Gods
  • Taimi will survive, taking the technological powers of Holosmith (withdraw my "she is a villain" theory, cos you are right)
  • Caithe will die
  • Harbinger of Woe makes his step, becomes the first villain
  • Kas&Jory breaks up, so we will be able to reach to them individually, and then mend their relationship or something
  • Gorrik reaches to Blish's consciousness, and give some words of wisdom to Taimi, before she becomes something more
  • More Norn story, Far Shiverpeaks
  • A chapter with Caithe and the Pale Tree (some kind of a big event with Aurene+the Pale Tree)

    I’m hoping for an Aurene free season. I was also hoping she’s gone for good but sadly the writers have now stated officially that GW2s story is about her so that’s blown my hope entirely

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    I'm hoping she becomes more of a background influence rather than being the front and center of the story like before.
    So that you can hear her voice and feel her influence over events but maybe she isn't directly involved or present, other than maybe some key turning point of the story.
    Fingers crossed she doesn't become a McGuffin.

    I could live with that, but they did say GW2 was "her journey" so I'm pretty certain she will be full focus again sooner rather than later sadly

  • I'm in agreement of hoping that Aurene takes a back seat and doesn't show up in Season 5. It's too early for her to be returning to the plot after just ascending into an Elder Dragon. She should require time to become used to her new powers. If she interacts with us in Season 5, it should be as voice only and minimally (like late into the season).

    • Aurene's weakness will be the commander and Caithe

    The Elder Dragons' weaknesses are always tied to their power. It's a running theme of "exploiting their strength". The Commander is mortal and will die naturally over time, Caithe may or may not due to being branded. But they're very unlikely to be her weakness.

    • Deep Sea Dragon and Jormag try to persuade Aurene, we will betray her, and she can only be powerful with them

    Why would we betray Aurene. That makes zero sense. Even with Randulf's and a few select others' constant hate on her.

    • Glint tries to comfort her (You are safe)

    Why would she be whispering this to norn preaching to Jormag, if it's a message for Aurene? Why would those same whispers be talking about promising or asking about strength and power (aka Jormag's M.O.). 99.999999% chance those whispers are Jormag to the norn.

    • Taimi will survive, taking the technological powers of Holosmith

    While I doubt Taimi will die (sans for draaamaaaa), how would holographic tech based off of Glint's sun magic save her, exactly?

    • Caithe will die

    Meh, doubtful.

    • Harbinger of Woe makes his step, becomes the first villain

    Meh, doubtful. HoW should remain in the fractals. I can see him becoming the "final fractal boss" (aka a level 101 boss fractal after 25 unique fractals are made), but beyond that, nah.

    • Kas&Jory breaks up, so we will be able to reach to them individually, and then mend their relationship or something

    Sadly, I can see this bad plothook happening because draaamaaaa.

    • A chapter with Caithe and the Pale Tree (some kind of a big event with Aurene+the Pale Tree)

    Sadly, I can see this not happening at this point. I fear the Pale Tree got put on the bus permanently despite the huge bombshell hint that she and Ogden had known some important kitten about the Elder Dragons and didn't tell anyone back in Season 2 (stuff that's still important and unknown at that).

    This is My Aurene's story.

    I'm thinking next season will focus less on the dragon stuff at least initially, just going off the pattern they've been following. I think it'd be interesting to see some restoration happening in branded areas now that the storms should be gone, there's a lot of potential for interesting scenery, maybe even architecture made from brand crystals etc.
