this not in game racial is it?--Knighthonor 23:44, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
If you're talking about racial skills, then nope. The only forms are Bear, Wolf, Raven, and Snow Leopard (Lynx).-- Shew 23:46, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Correction: The only known forms are Bear, Wolf, Raven, and Snow Leopard. Spirits and forms are different from the totems (e.g., affiliation). There may be an Owl Form, Wurm Form, Eagle Form, Ox Form, and whatever-animal-there-is Form. Just like I'm sure there will be elite human racial skills being the six avatars, the asuran equivalent being the golem suits I think was mentioned (coming up next: Guild Wars: Gundam Wars). -- Konig/talk 01:03, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Though it does not implicitly state that you won't be able to use Owl Form, etc., it does indirectly state it. "The norn can assume the form of their sacred totem beasts--bear, snow leopard, raven, and wolf--and call upon their power whenever they do battle, which is often" (source).-- Shew 01:25, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
However that isn't absolute. Also Ree has stated since then that there are families which worship the other spirits mainly, those four are just the most common seen worshiped among the norn since the exodus to the south. Either way, we'll see come GW2. -- Konig/talk 01:28, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Wouldn't Owl be one of the spirits eaten by Jormag? Ramei Arashi 17:58, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
We were never told which spirits were eaten by Jormag. -- Konig/talk 20:45, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Grammer[edit]

"the Owl spirit was unable to help the norn, due being busy elsewhere."

Due being busy elsewhere? Is that incorrect or is there some grammatical rule I forgot when I read this? Zungx 02:35, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Concerning that piece of information, what's the source? Becuase to me it doesn't make sense - either it's known why it was busy, which I think should be mentioned, or we don't know at all where it was or what it was doing, so it should be reworded. Otherwise there should be a source which gives the fairly cryptic message of it "being busy elsewhere". 90.206.126.31 23:42, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
What exactly were they busy doin?--Icyyy Blue User IcyyyBlue Elementalist Blue.png 23:43, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

(Edit conflict) grammar* - Infinite - talk 23:45, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

We don't know what they were busy with. All we know, from Ree in an interview, was that they were busy at the time somewhere else. -- Konig/talk 02:33, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
So I was right, Owl was apparently eaten by Jormag. Ramei Arashi 21:12, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
How would a spirit taste like? Spirits can't die can they? What would represent the owls in the spirit realm now? Nohjo 22:01, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Of course they can die (we kill dozens of spirits in gw1 and in GoA a spirit dies) and Owl is just the strongest of the spirits for owls and the one revered by the norn. Though technically when a spirit dies in the mortal realm, it merely goes to the spirit realm - unless devoured, in which case some simple spirits can remain alive in the stomach for over 200 years. Demons appear to find spirits a delicacy. -- Konig/talk 22:13, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
