More from the movement of the world? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 07:22, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. Lord Belar 18:40, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Huh? Sure, if I understand. Calor Talk 18:42, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Don't merge, GWW has different character articles even one has very little to do with the lore. Dan Ops (Dan Ops - talk) 11:36, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

That doesn't mean we have to be like GWW. Cress Arvein User Cress Arvein sig.JPG 05:21, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Well I guess there will be pretty much same policies after the game is out. And I don't really see the point to change GW2W when the game is released, why not to make it ready for it. Dan Ops (Dan Ops - talk) 15:49, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
IMO, this article should be deleted and anything linking here should be changed to Durmand instead. Seeing how he is in GW1, it only makes sense to me. Might as well make use of the inter-wiki linking. -- Konig Des Todes 16:41, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

References[edit]

References in GW1 is for GW1 and has nothing to do with GW2 as GW2 is set 250 years later. The substancial 'evidence' should BE where they mention him in GW2 Reviews, articles, etc. There is NO reference to Durmand in those articles, etc. that I can find. The GW1 Things should stay over in GW1, Not here. I don't agree with the Inter-wiki as what's the use of these for? If they can't be 'separate' in some ways? Gw2 is meant for gw2 and gw1 is meant for gw1. Not a mixture.

I am going to put a Delete on this page. If the admins, etc. feel it's worth deleting, they'll delete it. otherwise, I suggest 'evidence' of it being mentioned in gw2 articles, etc. ♥ Ariyen ♀ 03:04, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

"References in GW1 is for GW1 and has nothing to do with GW2 as GW2 is set 250 years later." Consider the historical context of the article. Do you think ANet would alter the lore?-- Shew 03:06, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Including them taking the easy way out and just building off of the lore they already established.--Łô√ë Çåŕð ├┤ëŕô 04:44, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Durmand has as much or more historical meaning as the Great Northern Wall, Ventari, Menzies, Druids, Forgotten, Bathea Havocbringer, Great Dwarf, Kurzicks, Luxons, Ronan, The Jade Sea, Vabbi, Kourna and other various articles on the GW2 wiki. If this page, which has more GW2 relation than many of the articles I listed, is deleted, then all those, and more, should be deleted as well. I don't care which is done, as long as there is consistency. But then, with the Exodus and Bathea articles, it brings into question of where that line is between GW2 info and GW1 info. -- Konig/talk 05:59, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Durmand is a minor character in OGW that facilitates the BMP. He has an entire monastery named after him in GW2. He's definitely more relevant to GW2. --Santax (talk · contribs) 15:40, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

I am inclined to agree with Santax's statement above that Durmand, the lore entity that existed following GW1, is of sufficient significance to GW2 to warrant his own GW2W article rather than interwiki-linking to the GW1 article on Durman, the minor GW1 NPC... That said, the article currently here doesn't have enough GW2-relevant information to even qualify as a stub, and no one's stepped forward to protest deletion or improve the article, so I'm going to give it another week then go ahead and delete if there's no further activity. - Tanetris 10:37, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

The only post-GW1 info we really have is that either he founded Durmand Priory, or the Priory is named after him. We're not even sure which is the case at the moment, I believe. And even in GW1 he is said to have a bunch of scribes working, indicating that what becomes (or is) the Priory was around in GW1 though never actually seen in a distinguished form (like the Seraph). So I don't see there being any information that either isn't equally relevant on Durmand Priory or can exist on gw1:Durmand. Konig/talk 16:26, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
