Talk:Temple of the Ages

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Is this page really necessary? If it's sunken then we may never see it again, and mentioning what it allowed players to do in GW1 doesn't seem relevant. EiveTalk 05:57, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

A majority of the content will be underwater. ArenaNet has said this, so I see no reason to believe we won't see the Temple of the Ages due to it being sunken. However, naming is wrong, its name is "Temple of the Ages" not "the Temple of Ages." Unless they're renaming it like they did with Tome of (the) Rubicon. -- Konig/talk 07:30, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Edit: It's called "the sunken Temple of the Ages" in the book. -- Konig/talk 07:31, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
As mentioned elsewhere on the wiki, this video depicts the Temple of Ages in GW2. So even though the discussion here is outdated, I think it's necessary, even though it may be little more than an underwater landmark now. User ColdEden sig.gif ColdEden 22:33, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

In regards to the move, I agree with it. If there is no opposition within the next couple of days, I will go ahead and move it. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 02:43, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

It's still wrong though. Temple of THE Ages, not just Temple of Ages. --hexalMy 17:36, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Fixed it. -- Konig/talk 22:29, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
^_^ kk we all good?--Icyyy Blue User IcyyyBlue Elementalist Blue.png 23:04, 23 August 2010 (UTC)


On the map of Queensdale the location where the Temple of the Ages ruins are is called the Godslost Swamp. They visit it and talk about it in this you tube video. I stuck a move tag on to get some ideas from people. Do you think Temple of the Ages merits its own article when the location in game is now called something different and we can refer out to the gww temple of ages article for what is used to be? I guess this could set a precedent for other locations like pockmark roughs which was pockmark flats, or others which are located in the same place as a gw1 significant location (Steeleye Span is where Fort Ranik was, Deserter Flats where Serenity Temple was and so on.) Thoughts? -- Aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 11:37, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

My impression here would be that the Temple has its own significance as a landmark that would warrant its own article (albeit probably not a very long one unless more happens there than we see) separate from the general Godslost Swamp area (which seems to include most if not all of Black Curtain). This would be a different case from places which are renamed or places which outright don't exist anymore. - Tanetris 12:13, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
The Temple is still called "Temple of the Ages" - the Black Curtain is now called Godslost Swamp. There's a difference. -- Konig/talk 17:56, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Hold up[edit]

The article states there were statues of all six gods. Was there really a statue of Kormir here? --Emelend 20:25, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

There isn't one in GW1, but in the demo videos, one can see a statue of Kormir between Dwayna's and Melandru's - both Kormir's and Dwayna's are sunk, while Melandru's is not (only one that isn't). -- Konig/talk 22:10, 24 August 2010 (UTC)


"The temple was destroyed when Orr rose and the resulting tidal wave sunk the temple."

Are we sure of this? I only ask because the rising of Orr should only affect the southern coastal area of Kryta. The tidal wave Zhaitan originated surely didn't flood all Kryta, did it? This verification is probably due to my lack of lore knowledge, and not an incorrection in the article, but I'd still like to be certain that it was the tidal wave that provoked the flood of the temple, and not any subsequent event. -- 00:04, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Well it didn't destroy the temple but brought water to there. Remember the area was already a swamp, and swap are usually not very high above sea level. Thus the tidal wave may have sunken the area. And I think it was confirmed on a Q&A during gamescom. The one where they went to the Temple. I think there's a link to the video on this talk page. -Alarielle- 09:57, 3 September 2010 (UTC)


when was this mentioned in the book? which page? Getefix 12:05, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

When Dougal's arrested, he was said to have been spotted around the sunken Temple of the Ages. -- Konig/talk 18:04, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
i'll check when i find it... Getefix 18:30, 27 March 2011 (UTC)


I saw Kormir, and 3 other statues under water and a single above water, but could not find Balthazar. Neither could I find it above water. 07:41, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Lyssa's is also missing - only Melandru, Dwayna, Kormir, and Grenth's statues are there. Those two are likely underground as some of the the underwater ones are partially buried too. Konig/talk 16:58, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

What?[edit] 07:26 to 07:30. What? o.O Titus The Third User titus the third.png 03:49, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Not sure why you linked that... but in regards to the notes you added to the article, I don't feel they're really necessary or relevant. A lot of other locations (that haven't experienced a "force of nature" change like LA or a concerted construction effort like Rata Sum) have completely different geography to how they appeared in GW1. The nit-picky little differences aren't significant. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 04:07, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
I changed the article, and linked that ANet dev. calling Melandru for Dwayna, out of frustration on how they managed to get everything wrong. It's heartbreaking to see, but you're absolutely right. It's not relevant to the article (or the talk page) - and should have been posted on the forums instead. That won't change anything though, so I'll just shut it and learn to live with it. Titus The Third User titus the third.png 11:51, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I should have said "aren't significant to most players." They are plenty significant to lorehounds like yourself, and I should not have disparaged you like that. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:08, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely no need to appologise. As you said: there are plenty of things that's been changed or simply vanished (big outposts of stone have, without a single trace). ToA is just one of all those things, and seen in the big picture it really doesn't have any significance. It just means they put the statues wherever they wanted to.
