I’m still not really sure where they came from or how they came to be.

Did they just materialize out of thin air as full grown adults? Or are they from the mists? I feel like I missed something here...

    If i remembet correctly, they were created as fully grown adults.

    This also effected their ageing.
    They age alot faster then you would expect.

    New born skyscales are not effected.

  • Sadly the map reset in the middle of that revelation for myself, so I got some of the dialogue cut off and it didn't continue when I returned (I just had to do the next step in the quest).

    The materialising out of nothing didn’t sit right with me either. I hope there is more to it. Otherwise it prob would have more sense to say they came through the rifts from the mists

    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. . .

    From my understanding, the Skyscales were born from the Mists (in a similar manner to Fractals, so it isn't really "out of nothing"), and it seems that Aurene / Kralkatorrik was used as a template, in a similar manner that Razah was born from the Mists using humans as a template.

    Basically, they're draconian Razahs.

    As Gorrik said after the first collection, they were born fully-grown which caused accelerated growth in the small species.
