Legendary Blademaster Diarmid

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Legendary Blademaster Diarmid was a Sylvari of the Pact who died when Mordremoth tore the fleet apart. Occam knew her and saw her die. Her corpse was taken and used to create a Commander of the Mordrem Guard. She first appeared as a Mordrem Guard around the Corpse Grove in Verdant Brink. Where she attacked the Pact's Ordnance Corps Outpost, only to be reborn again from her pod in the Central Blighting Tower.

Diarmid is a profound user of the longbow, greatsword, and dual-wielding swords. She will switch between all three sets when fighting. When her health is low or "broken", she will split into three champion versions of herself, each wielding one of her three weapons and never switching. She seems to appear in Verdant Brink, however given she is champion ranked and only uses one weapon (swords), it is likely just one of her three clones.
