Article title[edit]

I'm not entirely sure if we should put this here or simply under College. The Norn totem article existed already, so I went by that standard, but perhaps we should decide on this before making the human heritage and sylvari season pages. Especially since "season" also means, well, simply season. -- NilePenguin 14:09, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Asuran College is fine imo, because this article is about the factions in the Asuran culture, and not about 'colleges'(/school) as we know them. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 14:21, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay. I think "Sylvari Season" will be the correct name for the sylvari factions then, although simply "Heritage" should suffice for the humans (there's no mention of any other species having the concept of different nations). -- NilePenguin 14:57, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Since there's no "Season" page on GW1, I doubt the normal meaning of seasons will be significant enough for their own page, actually, so I'm going ahead with creating a page for the sylvari under "Season". -- NilePenguin 17:39, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Still think this may be better off under "College". Same goes for Norn Totem -> Totem. Anyone agreed on this? -- NilePenguin 04:32, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Without the game it is hard to know if the terms will be overloaded. Currently I would agree that the race name clarifying things can be dropped without causing confusion. Maybe if we need to disambiguate in future maybe it should be like this: College (character customisation), or College (asura) rather than using it like a prefix? -- Aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 04:50, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
As long as we don't know if there's going to be anything else named "College" of any significance in the game, I think it's safe to move this to College. -- NilePenguin 04:53, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I added this to Category:Character_affiliation, where Season, heritage and norn totem already were. Why was this reverted? See also Category_talk:Playable_races. -- NilePenguin 04:55, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, misunderstanding on my part. It's the season, heritage and norn totem ones that are wrong, apparently. -- NilePenguin 05:01, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Expand/Repurpose[edit]

I'd love to see someone add some information to actually describe what asuran colleges are and how they work from a lore perspective to make it more than just a redundant page on biography options. Gonna hold off on deleting (or possibly just redirecting) for now to see if anyone's willing to take up that challenge. - Tanetris 10:45, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

I think asura week is the key event this (and other related articles) is waiting on. Any information regarding the colleges now might be extremely outdated. - Infinite - talk 16:10, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Not to mention that it's extremely limited. Might be best to make it as a disambig page for the time being. Konig/talk 16:24, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Shouldn't be deleted. Colleges must have a serious impact on asuran society, history and lore, just like charr legions. As more information on colleges comes available, this might serve as a detailed redirect/disambiguation page. 62.197.173.242 07:47, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
The biography will return in the game itself, so when you make a choice in the game, it will return in the game again depending on your choice. So I think you might return here. Tomoko 12:56, 9 November 2011 (UTC)


Scarlet Briar Implications[edit]

It should be added, as per Clockwork Chaos and the Queen's speech event, that non-Asura can attend Asura colleges. Blackvale (talk) 23:47, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
