Special Collections[edit]

I'd like to set up an article for the Special Collections and archive all the books and interactable objects. I'd like to know if anyone has already started this somewhere or if they'd like to help. If not, I will create a page this afternoon. Qiff (talk) 10:38, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

I think Durmand Priory Basement beat you to the index, although that list might include non-book items. If you want, I suppose you could have the books listed in one group and items like the ugly bust in another. Also, don't forget to include the books that are only unlocked after talking to the Archivist. --Rognik (talk) 12:21, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
After I wrote this, I thought it was possible the collection was under Durmand Priory Basement. I'll check what I can add, thanks. Qiff (talk) 08:20, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Approaching Ela Makkay[edit]

I see there are Priory/non-Priory versions but my OoW and Vigil characters were greeted with "Welcome, Scholar" anyway. --Sialor (talk) 00:31, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

I noticed that on my Vigil character. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 02:04, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
Happened on my sylvari Vigil character. Have yet to run through on any others thus far. Konig 06:24, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

No such thing[edit]

The second phase description says you have to "Then you need to find yourself a Fragility shield, and then kill the Vortex Crystal of the same color as your buff." Except there's only one vortex crystal, and it has no color, and you can't kill it. So, can someone please write and ACCURATE description? Daddicus (talk)

Never mind; I fixed it. Daddicus (talk)

"Shadow" of the Dragon - a misnomer for Mordremoth's champion?[edit]

In the dialogue, Ela Makkay says "Zhaitan ruled shadow and death" as its spheres of influence, but the Shadow of the Dragon is obviously not Zhaitan's champion. -- 22:23, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Zhaitan doesn't have a monopoly on shadow or death. The Shadow of the Dragon is a metaphorical name - like Claw of Jormag - to signify that the dragon is a "shadow of Mordremoth". It originates from the Dream, a non-physical place, and is Mordremoth's hold within it. Just like the Claw of Jormag isn't a literal claw nor does it mean that Jormag's sphere of influence is claws, the Shadow of the Dragon isn't a literal shadow nor does it mean that Mordremoth's sphere of influence is shadow.

Second Phase Crystal Boss Issue[edit]

During the second phase of the final boss of the glint area, the fragile circles end up spawning inside the red aoes that instant kill you, since it uses the same ranged attack to spawn the circle aoes on the fragility buff. Is there any way to get the fragility buffs to spawn outside the circles he spawns? 05:32, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Audio/Text mismatch?[edit]

When speaking with the Historian near the interactive items Bloodstone and Koss on Koss, the arcanist that tells him to "shh" actually audibly says, "Quiet!" in a really old man voice. Anyone else notice this? EDIT: forgot to sign. 02:54, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
