From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
- Have you noticed that? The air? The way it feels here?
What do you mean?
- The air just feels thicker, harder to breathe. I first noticed it back at Caer Shadowfain. And the further south we push, the worse it gets. It's like the air itself could choke you to death.
Why do you think that is?
- The stench of the dragon, the prevalence of death here, the suffocating crush of doom...I don't know. But one way or another, this has got to end soon.
- I think it will.
- I see.
- I haven't noticed anything.
