Commander-obsessed Dragonbash Reveler

Has anyone else noticed the reveler next to Peeta's Gate in Hoelbrak? You can't click on him to talk, but everytime I come through the asura gate there, I just manage to catch him saying something about the commander. He seems just a little bit ... off.

I wouldn't mind seeing him added to other festivals, wondering about what color wrapping paper the commander would like, or what kind of Halloween costume.

    I've noticed him. Although I haven't stuck around long enough to hear all of what he says I've caught a few things. If I remember correctly it includes him claiming he's heard the commander is taller than most norn, and (separately) claiming they're even shorter than he is - and he's an asuran.

    Which in my case is kind of true, since one of my characters is a max-height norn and another is a minimum height asura.

    If you know that reference you have good taste in games :D

    Missing out on the game, but not the adoring fan.

    I had to look it up, I didn't have a computer that could do those kinds of games back then.

    I was thinking it could be fun to have some kind of quest that would end up with this reveler in our home instance, where he could leave a present every so often, the way my cats leave a dead bird for me every few days :)

    I believe he says something about me looking resplendent in vermillion

    He also wondered if I even like Zhaitaffy.

    I imagine zhaitaffy is like candy corn in real life, no one actually likes it but everyone feels like they have to have it because it's part of the festival.

    I haven't been able to catch all of the things he says - even though I constantly run back and forth around him just to try and get him to say something. I did hear him say the Commander is smaller than a dust mite and even smaller than he is...
    ...which was hilarious, because my Commander is a very short sylvari who's a bit sensitive about his height.

    Anyway. This guy's great; I love his dialogue. :D Add him to other festivals? Yes, please!

    fear not this night
    you will not go astray

    They should bring him back and give him a name. Something like, oh, Noober or Neeber.

    Let's just hope he never meets up with Lady Camilla (I think that was her name?) out in Kourna. The fangirling would be disastrous.

    Maybe they're in touch and setting up a fan club.

    • I wonder what the Pact commander's doing right now...
    • Have you heard the rumor? The Pact commander is actually three skritt in a suit of armor!
    • I heard the Pact commander is tinier than a dust mite. Smaller than me, even!
    • I wonder if the commander likes zhaitaffy...
    • Do you think the commander is a Snargle Goldclaw fan?
    • Do you think... do you think the commander wears regular clothes, or...
    • Gluten allergy or no?
    • Leather or chain mail?
    • I bet the commander looks resplendent in vermilion...

    This is great, thank you! :) I never could catch the Snargle Goldclaw one, and now I know the reference.

    Thanks belong to the Redditor (Roelski aka u/Roelski aka @Roelski.2697)... and to the wiki community. (Said wiki community could include anyone reading. See this forum thread for more.)

    It's not just a rumor: three skritt in an Outfit compete in the Lunar New Year's race.

    (@Danikat.8537 is correct, below; that's the race I was thinking of)

    It's not just a rumor: three skritt in an Outfit compete in the Halloween race.

    And in the Lunar New Year race - they're the Lunar "horse".

    I don't know whether to call that an Outfit or a MountFit.

    Well, I do log in every day for more shinies, so...........

    It didn't take long after I started playing until I started viewing skritt as a parody/metaphor for mmo players in general.

    Then it is too late. The world is already doomed. We've spent so long focusing on the Elder Dragons that we failed to see the far more sinister threat forming right under our noses: our fanbase.

    And as everyone knows in MMOS, the more of you there are, the better the loot:
    Solo player loot = good
    5 person instance loot = better
    10/25 person raid loot = best
