Talk:The Icebrood Saga

A bit of trivia: in the soundtrack's file names IBS is referred to as "LW5", but I haven't seen any other official source where they referred to it as Living World Season 5. (Makes me wonder, after EoD will they continue with S6 or will they release a "proper" S5?) -- kazerniel (talk | contribs) 01:47, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

There's been other references to The Icebrood Saga as Living World Season 5 by the Devs (at least, internally). Here: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/The_Icebrood_Saga_announcement I'm sure I've seen/heard/read it other places, as well. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 02:18, 9 August 2021 (UTC)
Yes, there is plenty of official usage of "Living World Season 5" when talking about The Icebrood Saga. "The Icebrood Saga" is just a name for the season, like Scarlet's War for Season 1. EDIT: Though they do use IBS more prominently since it was originally supposed to be a bigger thing based on the announcement and later dev statements (before they got all shifted to EoD), so that's why the page is named like that and not LWS5 I guess. ~Sime 02:29, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

Jormag vs. Primordus[edit]

So if I understand things correctly form reading the Story sections, in Path of Fire Balthazar wanted to pit those two Dragons against each other (thus gaining their magic(?)) but also destryoing Tyria.

But in The Icebrood Saga it is a good idea to let those two destroy each other. Is this 180° turn ever explained? How? Steve1 (talk) 12:40, 20 November 2021 (UTC)

Yes, it is explained throughout the season (and touched upon even in S3, S4). Tl:dr we did not have much of a choice currently + we now have Aurene who can absorb the excess magic (which did not work out much anyway, but at least it did not go to a warmongering god who didn't care if Tyria gets destroyed). ~Sime 16:04, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
