Jhavi Jorasdottir

I’m curious to learn more of her. No doubt we will in the coming Saga, and it seems a sealed deal that she was part of Braham’s attempt at Destiny’s Edge 2.0.

What do we really know of her life and personality? Her deeds? The wiki is pretty sparse, and I honestly forgot she existed until recently.

I know she’s a necromancer, which is interesting to me. I just default norn to heavier professions.

Thoughts, theories, details? I don’t know if her wielding a shield in the trailer is significant, but it would be a neat hint at a new elite spec or even simply a new off hand option.

    by our short contact with her in Vigil Keep, shes seems a "spiritualized" person, i hope they maintain it.

    The whisperings from the Mists grow more urgent with each passing day. I hear your name from time to time.

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Jhavi_Jorasdottir

    on a top 10 promising characters in this saga, shes easily ranked as 2nd behind bangar..
    to be honest i like all Vigil, i hope Laranthir of the Wild make a appearence too.

    Vigil, Necromancer, a heir of a legend, spiritualized, how could someone be so perfect? Shes could perfectly be the wife of the commander.

    I’m curious to see her dialogue when they reach Jora’s homestead.

    I was with you on everything until that last sentence lol.

    She does seem intriguing for the reasons you list though. If she’s anyone’s love interest, it would likely be Braham’s. The parallels to their stories are too perfect (being overshadowed by an ancestor’s legend). Even then I’m not sure I want the writers to go that route, but the idea of a sweeping epic romance weaving throughout the saga is a notion I could get behind.

    I was joking lol :) i guess it would be problematic "marry" anyone to the commander due to vast playerbase personal tastes, and even if it happen by some choice, theres the 2nd problem of Anet struggle with mechanics when come to implement choices in history.

    Last thing we know, Jhavi Jorasdottir is one of the top military figures in the Vigil. Why would she leave her duty and join Braham’s guild, even temporarily?

    It’s been stated she feels overshadowed by Jora’s legacy. What better way to step out of that than to be one of the norn who defeated Jormag?

    Besides, there’s vigil presence in the Shiverpeaks, and Braham even stated he left his party at a vigil outpost. It wouldn’t be a far stretch at all for her to have been part of Braham’s failed “guild.” It could easily be written off as a vigil assignment, or she could’ve taken some kind of leave.

    The orders are devoted to the struggle against the dragons, so it’s entirely plausible a Vigil member would be sanctioned to pursue this kind of thing.

    if she had interest in braham it will make her poor. Braham is a sinking ship, hes too idiotic.

    She’ll end up with Braham, calling it now. She may have been written with that in mind the entire time

    I strongly doubt that. She's been in the game since launch, while Braham didn't "exist" until Frost and Flame. I can't remember if it was February or March when we got Braham and Rox's intro stories, but January was mostly repairing signposts for refugees. It's just Jhavi hasn't done anything since players first found her.

    To build on top of that, the Vigil in particular is about fighting the Dragons head-on. If someone was going to kill a dragon, at least one member of the Vigil would want to be there on-hand to witness to the attack on Jormag and report back on the results. I don't know how well spread Taimi's revelation that killing the elder dragons is destabilizing Tyria's magic balance, but Almorra as one of the senior members of the Pact would probably be aware, even if she's still determined to kill them all. Besides, if you're going to send someone to "spy" on a guild of norn, Jorasdottir seems like the best choice for such a mission.

    I'll admit, I was slightly disappointed she didn't appear in the prologue, but considering the story for why we were in Grothmar, I suppose I understand. Still, there are lots of non-charr there who aren't part of our party. I guess she might brief us on the situation in the Far Shiverpeaks when we finally make our way in there.

    yeah, but like many Pact "important" figures shes like a ghost/once time appearence. also theres this "vigil leader" thats almost a ghost too. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Lord_Rodrigo_of_Cormoch

    main pvp: Khel the Undead(power reaper).

  • Jhavi is one character I'm awaiting the most to see highlighted, and why I'm so happy to see Norns and Charrs egt the spotlight. I hope we'll get a "One Episode is Norn/Kodan focused" followed by a more "Charr focused" one. The Norns really need some more fleshing out in my book.

    Yeah the wiki has so little on her I didn’t even know when she was added. All there is was dialogue about hearing our name in the mists so I assumed it was from the kralkatorrik portals current events. In any case she’s pretty much a blank slate that could go anywhere they want

    i guess this lines about the mists is where we visit the Vigil Headquarters and talk to her, ....... but its is a vague memory im not 100% sure about it.

  • Thanks to the dumb vigil Norn at Hoelbrak who keep repeating her name, i got annoyed just by seeing her name let alone hearing it, great start Anet.
