Do sylvari dream during their sleep?

Hi everyone!

We all know sylvari experience the Dream before they awaken, but do they have "regular dreams" when they sleep (e.g. like humans)?

(I'm sorry if this has been discussed already - I couldn't find any post about this)

Thank you :)

    They do! Off the top of my head, here's one of conversations mentioning it. (Curiously, that dialogue also suggests that the sylvari link to each other through the uppercase Dream bleeds through into their lowercase dreams as well, to the point that it's conceivable they could have someone else's nightmares.)

    Thank you for your answer!

    I was wondering about this because I remembered that Caithe had a second Wyld Hunt (concerning the egg) and asked myself whether this second "calling" could have come from a regular (lowercase) dream of hers.

    Glad you asked that question, I second @Aaron Ansari.1604 's answer :)

    Possibly! It's worth noting, though, that the callings are also felt while awake, to the point of distraction.
