gw1:Stormcaller[edit]

It looks like it's mouthpiece, no? -- Konig/talk 01:51, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Doubt it's just a coincidence. Probably deserves a reference. Varve 02:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
I thought they specifically said it was designed to resemble Stormcaller? At least, that's what I thought... :x --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:33, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Every item has a definition... why aren't these mentioned on their pages? The Warhorns "note" is this: "A fabled horn that recalls the glory of the lost human kingdom of Ascalon." aka... Stormcaller. :) --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
If it were Stormcaller, I'm sure it would be called such. Unless the mouthpiece suddenly got renamed via retcon. As to why they aren't added: probably no one bothered to yet. -- Konig/talk 05:14, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Basically just didn't bother in my case.
@Konig: "recalls the glory of...Ascalon" not "was originally the mouthpiece of a giant effing horn found in the city of Rin". -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png 05:42, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Right, that's what I was saying. That should be @ Amannelle, as he was basically saying that this is Stormcaller('s mouthpiece). -- Konig/talk 06:02, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
On that note, this item would also be much more awesome if it was simply named Stormcaller Warhorn. I don't get the logic behind renaming a well known artifact, especially how it's one of the final items that can be obtained for reward points. --78.92.3.88 17:07, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
You must remember, this is 250 years later, Ascalon was lost. nobody would KNOW of its name because theyve either died of old age or the books have exploded in foefire, along with the locals.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 17:32, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Of course, it's possible that all reference to the existence of the powerful artifact Stormcaller has been lost, but it is just about equally possible that the legend lived on through the people and historical documents of the stronghold Ebonhawke, which was "founded" by Gwen only years later to the last known rediscovery of Stormcaller. And as we know, Gwen associated very closely with the people who discovered and used the fabled horn on that certain day.
However, I do think that this is going much further than anyone has ever given thought to regarding the naming of this warhorn. --78.92.3.88 17:58, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
IMO, it's far likely that legends of Stormcaller still exist... as a useless object. The legend of it saving Ascalon was false, as Ascalon fell, so people wouldn't care for it except to call a little rain for farming. But yeah, it's likely that Durmand Priory, Ebonhawke, or some of the many Ascalonian refugees have legends of Stormcaller. It could be that the "true name" of the mouthpiece is "Mountaincall" though that seems silly - then again, Stormcaller is on a mountainside... -- Konig/talk 21:37, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
@Konig I was saying no such thing, I'm sorry if I was unclear. I was meaning that it was BASED off stormcaller. There's no way it WOULD be stormcaller, seeing as how many people will be running around with this thing in their hands. ^^ --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 21:55, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh that never stopped MMO designers before. Just how many Alari's Double Blades did Alari keep in her hut do you think? And where did all the Shiro's Swords come from? They must all be cheap replicas. :) --78.92.3.88 06:09, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Stormcaller Article[edit]

Why not make a page for Stormcaller on here? After all, it looks just as amazing in Guild Wars 2 as it does in the first. see? AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 04:45, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Huh. Is there any sort of plaque, waypoint, point of interest or something beside it? Otherwise I'm not sure if it's very relevant any longer. Mediggo 06:57, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Well, an NPC talks about it for a while. Guess their history books are a tad off, eh? ;) AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 17:13, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps we'll one day have a page or category for monuments, landmarks and such and mention Stormcaller there. Mediggo 20:09, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
