Athrenn.9468 Posted December 19, 2017 Share Posted December 19, 2017 So, with the Hall of Chains raid taking place in the Underworld, it's obviously possible for any mortal to enter the divine realms without having Ascended, achieved Weh no Su, or even been born a human. In GW1, Prophecies characters needed to be Ascended, Factions characters needed to be Weh no Su, and Nightfall characters only needed to complete a quest called "Hunted!" (which had nothing to do with Ascension, just establishing a Sunspear base after the disastrous loss of their leader at Gandara). Does anyone have any theories for why things are different now? One possibility is that the Underworld only opened to us because Desmina needed a group of mortal heroes to do battle with Dhuum. Without her, the way would have been closed to us until we've Ascended... But then I wonder if Ascension ever really mattered if the requirement could be waived by a servant of the Gods whenever they wished. Was it just some arbitrary test that they put into place to restrict access to their realm, like some sort of divine passport or work visa? Maybe using the Oracle of the Mists and the Forgotten as immigration officers in charge of deciding which mortals should be allowed into their realms?
