- The Searing and following destruction of Ascalon.
- A warning of a traitor and the rising of the undeads in Kryta: "Trust not the treacherous man, we have been warned! Prepare for the coming of those whose departure caused the gods to weep!"
- The consequences of the undead rising: "Soon the true seers will be revealed", "The war against the divine" will begin.
- The Crystal Desert and ascending of the chosen ones.
- The White Mantle's action in the Shiverpeaks, the dwarf civil war: "An opening will be given to the disciples of the Unseen. The peaks and valleys of the Shiverpeaks will be painted in blood."
- The travel of the ascendants to the Ring of Fire islands (more precisely, to the Door of Komalie): "At this time, the Ascendants will rise, and the way to the Door will be clear."
- The demise of the Titans (presumably the "flame" being sought): "Long into the Season of the Scion, Tyria is revived again. Over the bones of the bird of prey, the fire is put out and the diabolic gathering is closed off once again."
