Remember you can't use refrences from 250 years ago, unless they're of the utmost importance, which these guys arn't, so i'm deleting the examples you set up.--Zoldon 23:43, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes. Thanks for the small rewrite. The whole idea is for minimal GW1 info. Calor (t) 23:51, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Do we even need this? Lord Belar 03:16, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
Considering that they're explicitly mentioned as both existing and being a minor threat in the Movement of the World, I'd say that yes, we do. --Santax (talk · contribs) 16:43, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I suppose it's a good article to keep at this size so far until GW2 is released and we learn more about them. — Eloc 17:12, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
''Tyrian centaurs made peace with humans after both witnessed the birth of the Sylvari.'' Where does this come from? So far I know this wasn't said in the movement of the world. -- Mepp 16:53, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I have no recollection of reading that either.. --User Brains12 sig.png (Brains12) 18:09, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I haven't read it, and wtf is in your sig, Brians? Calor (t) 18:19, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

There's mention of it on the gamewiki page for GW2, it's in the last paragraph of the main 'Setting' section. [[1]]. Where they got it from, I don't know. --Fail 21:10, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Much like the setting section here, it was copied in part from what was written on the wikipedia page. Most was written from the movement of the world, but the centaur comment was added later (by the same person). It may have been a misinterpretation of the Sylvari part of the article (by actively ignoring the Kryta section which directly counters the 'peace' idea by saying they're actively fighting for land in Kryta). As far as I know 'movement' is the only source of lore so far for gw2 - so unless someone has read something in the printed PCGamer articles (you know, the stuff I haven't read ;) I'm very much for removing it. Or rewriting to reflect it was a human and a centaur who made peace with each other rather than the races. I'll also ping the person who wrote the line and find out what he was thinking at the time. --Aspectacle 22:15, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
The reply from the writer was that all content was from the Movement of the World. My reading of the comments here is that we agree that the text doesn't really say there is peace between Centaur and Humans so I'll remove the comment. --Aspectacle 21:51, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

There any way we can make this more than one line? :/ -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 07:50, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Maybe they will become a playable race. That would do it. Cress Arvein User Cress Arvein sig.JPG 04:27, 1 June 2008 (UTC)


Maybe we could possibly add pictures from the trailer containig centaur? Since they match a huge resembelence to them :)--User: Blood StainBloodStain 16:20, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Remove Picture[edit]

I think we should remove the picture because nobody confirmed that those are really centaurs and I think they could also be minions of Jormag (they look a bit like the nornbear cursed by Jormag and their heads don't really look like the head of a centaur) Haldir Murkwood -- 12:30, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

As seen here, They are infact centaurs, cursed or not, still centaurs User:Huginn--Talk 13:10, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
The heads of the centaurs don't look like centaur heads due to them wearing helms. They are Centaurs who are corrupted by Jormag (so it seems). -- Konig/talk 20:21, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Evryone here must agree with me when they say that those aren't normal centaurs in the picture... and you do not put a picture of the nighmare court as a sylvari for please, remove the picture or say that those are no normal centaurs. and removing things beacause they are speculations...ALMOST EVRYTHING ABOUT GW2in this wiki is specualation

agree -- 15:21, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

They're centaurs nonetheless, and I think that's the only GW2-relevant image of centaurs. Saying they're corrupted by Jormag or any other dragon is pure speculation, seemingly based on their metal adornments; I'd say it's just them being more advanced than they are currently, but again that would just be speculation. It's best to stick with solid facts, and the most factual thing we can get out of that image is that they're centaurs. --pling User Pling sig.png 15:28, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
I changed the image to versus.jpg. The one in the current image looks "normal," so I would think the "Centaur Raiders" would be corrupted centaurs.-- Shew 16:30, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

thank you


Who else loves Centaurs more than all of the other races? Eive Talk Windgrace 06:35, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

I prefer Tengu. Can't wait for them to be playable in the Canthan GW2 release. :P Arshay Duskbrow 06:42, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I actually like the norn and humans, idk im just the type of person that dont like creatures really...--♥Icyyy♥ 06:43, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Tengu and charr are the best imo. -- Konig/talk 07:25, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I like Centaurs a lot (and hope we can play them in Elona), but I also love the Sylvari and Asura (I especially like the Asuran architecture). ^^ --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 12:32, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
when i first came across a centaur i almost peed my pants no joke their face scared me lol but i was only 9:P the charr didn't scare me really would laugh if you found out what happened when i left pre searing with my main ele.../:--♥Icyyy♥ 13:01, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, as much as I love tengu, I can't get over the fact that they can reanimate the long dead to perfect health, and harbor no grudges against the person who assassinated them. But centaurs die, stay dead, and somehow hate you for it beyond the grave. So they're ok in my book. Eive Talk Windgrace 05:13, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Centaurs have got this badass attitude (at least in GW1), and one can't help but to wonder how it would feel like with four legs. So to sum this up; yeah, centaurs are awesome! -- 93 | T | C | 06:44, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Eive, the game mechanics of auto-resurrection has no hold in lore (as I'm assuming you're referring to when Talon and the two others in the BMP mission die) as far as we're aware. It's even iffy on how resurrection acts in lore (we just know it exists in lore). -- Konig/talk 08:23, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Actually Konig, I was talking about when you make an assassin character and have to assassinate Swift Honorclaw. Then I looked on wiki and realized the tengu you meet later is Soar Honorclaw. I had assumed Swift magically came back to life. My mistake. :P Eive Talk Windgrace 00:55, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
I also would love to play as centaur or tengu in the expansions (both are important races on each continent, even if Tengu's aren't allowed now on Cantha and probably Joko exterminated most centaurs of Elona), but there is a problem about gampley for both races: They can't swim, or at least go underwater. Having the body of a horse in one case and feathers on ther other makes it very unlikely imo. Not to mention how hard would be for a centaur thief to roll backwards (maybe they can just evade jumping back). But the water thing keeps them from being a possibility in the future I think. Lokheit 14:27, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Very late response lol. I agree that swimming centaurs are pretty much out of the question but I wouldn't object to the Tengu being a playable race. Ducks, geese, swans, cormorants and penguins can all swim so feathers aren't necessarily an impediment to swimming. Don't rule out the Tengu just yet 15:37, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Outcast Qindova[edit]

This is about the comment, "There have only been two known centaurs who have renounced their hatred for humans and went on to live a life of pacifism: Ventari and Ehrgen Windmane." When speaking with Outcast Qindova the conversation goes like this: Him: "Greetings <Race>. Do the humans treat you as poorly as they do me? No, I think unlikely. What can this lowly centaur do for you?" Character: "I just want to hear your story." He proceeds to tell your character how he tried to reason with his leader, saying that the war between humans could end in their race being eliminated. He tells you he escaped, due to the tribe likely have splitting him open had he not run away. Now with that said, should that sentence be worded in such a fashion? I mean, he doesn't hate humans. He's trying to be reasonable and resides in Lion's Arch. 04:43, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
