Unfortunately, we will have to hold off on taking our revenge as the main protagonist for GW2 when it releases will be Zaithan & not Kralthorak (not sure I got the spelling correct for both).

Anyway for me the more important things to take away were the bits & pieces which have not been revealed to the players about GW2. I strongly believe we will have a Mesmer class & also some kind of spell warrior (maybe even similar to Paragon) because of the way the character of Logain fights.

The one thing striking thing which got me was the heavily flawed race of Humans. I don't know how but I could not forgive Logain myself let alone expecting Zojja & Rytlock to forgive him.
Also, I wished they would have delved more into the lore of the Nightmare court. It seemed too simple to say they oppose Ventari's teachings.

I felt pretty much the same, I really didn't think the other characters had any reason to forgive Logan and it's hard to see him as anything but a traitor. Considering he's supposed to be a big hero for the humans, it'll be interesting to see how you can interact with him in the game.

Personally, I'm hoping for a [punch in face] option. I also would have liked some more insight to the sylvari in general.

@arnavdesai The way you forgive Logan is make Jennah the Bad Guy. Consider: You've got a beautiful Mesmer who has everything that a guy like Logan could want. Add a little bit of "I put a bond on you!" and you'll understand that Logan had about as much choice as one of Snaff's golems: Jennah magically compelled Logan to come to her aid.

Thoughts?

Also, just to confirm didnt the first book come after Edge of Destiny in the Guild Wars timeline?

@arnavdesai Yup, Edge of Destiny goes into how the Dragonbrand is created, while in Ghosts of Ascalon it's already present.

Though I decided to go back and read GoA i noticed a few discrepancies though things might have changed in the time between the two books.

@arnavdesai Heyo. I'm trying to comment, but it doesn't seem to be working so well on my end. :(

I think Edge of Destiny happens before and after the events of Ghosts of Ascalon.

@Victor Stillwater

GoA is set one year before the events of GW2 and EoD is set 4years before the events of GoA.

Oh! cool! Thanks for the timeline. I'm still looking for a copy of the Ascalon book in my country, so I can't really verify the hearsay I got from friends.

Thanks though. :D
