Name Origins[edit]

Where does the word "Damoss" come from? What does it mean? SlatzG (talk) 16:18, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Well "oss" is the common suffix for Krait "classes"- Hypnoss, Nimross, Damoss. Nimross is the ranged attacker, so its origin is obvious- Nimrod was a mighty hunter. Hypnoss is the magic class, and hypnosis is often associated with occultism- there might be a stronger link there, but probably not directly associated with Hypnos other than his name being the root of the word. So the origin for Damoss probably has something to do with being a warrior or fighter. Possibly referencing the sword of Damocles since they are sword wielders.

Or it could be from the Greek word damasis tame, subdue. GWW has a table on gww:Krait with the Latin/Greek roots of the GW1 krait names. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:32, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
