It troubled me, that ritual event (which one I love a lot like the doppelganger one in crystal desert) is led by a svanir necromancer. When you are chosen, you gain "Split Spirit".
Description of the effect: "The dark magics of this ritual have wrenched a part of your essence from you. Find this unnatural haunt and defeat it! " sooo... We are made with essence? It's like our soul? I took the ritual as voodoo, but how Svanirs managed to manipulate spirits/souls like that? What gave me even more shivers is that the necromancer applies "Spirit Lured" -> "Dark magic permeates the area; it reaches through your body and wraps itself around a part of your spirit. As it grows stronger, it will be more difficult to resist. " Somehow the Svanir is able to make us fighting an evil twin without killing us or inflicting a condition to us. Then, I wonder, why Jormag isn't using that powerful weapon on everyone? Could be a tactic to send boneskinners against our troops as fear maker in addition of Haunts as distractions from real threats. Maybe they've learned those skills recently, old svanirs used to do nothing apart summoning elementals or using ice magic. But guess the asuran researcher will tell us more later.
Never had the time to post that, so here you go.
