Avatar of Balthazar

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Avatar of Balthazar is a form taken on after performing a ritual using the Idol of Balthazar. If not done properly, the ritual is capable of killing those casting it. The individual transformed becomes the avatar of human god Balthazar, a towering, fiery warrior wielding great power and whose strength only grows with each kill. However, they risk the side-effect of being turned into a blood-crazed psychopath. The idol itself is destroyed after the ritual is performed.
