** Kodan don't have anything to spare. They're locked in a war to the knife with Jormungandr the ice dragon and barely holding on. And I should note that one of his champions is the only multi-phase fight outside of dungeons in the entire game. Also, there is no way to bring troops in and out. They live in iceberg cities, which the dragon scattered.

Added DiffLines:

*** With the addition of Dry Top and the Silverwastes to the game, we now know that there are centaur tribes that are friendly, or at least neutral, to humans, quite possibly having been influenced by Ventari's teachings; remember that Ventari himself originally hailed from that region. It's entirely possible that in the upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion, the player character will be able to recruit these tribes to help fight Mordremoth.

** Maybe it's because, in the human starter zone (Queensdale), Krytan drakehounds are found mainly in Beetletun, the fief of Minister Caduceus. They might have originally been bred especially for the Caduceus family, as several dog breeds in our own world were originally created for the aristocracy.

* So anyways, I'm playing on a high population server and have a character in the 20s. I try to tackle some of these region-wide events and am disappointed to find like three or four people ''tops'' going after them. I try to do some of the local quests and find myself pretty much on my own for those. I walk into cities that're practically ghost towns. Where the hell ''is'' everyone? Am I just playing during off hours, or are they all clustered around the starting areas like ''CityOfHeroes''.

* How do mesmer illusions do real, tangible damage? [[AWizardDidIt Magic]]? YourMindMakesItReal?

** Why not both? You can say the Illusions of even make Clones or Phantasms's action feel like it happening to them and then the Magic would add the damage afterwards.

** This point is clarified if you play the personal story. The Pact didn't build it, they reclaimed a ruined fort, repaired and fortified it.

*** Well, you can build a complicated machinery to do thing X, OR, you could pray to your god, clap your hands and thing X will happen. Humans were explicitly stated to be so backwards because the influence of gods and the magic that is routinely used. Most of their newer technology is pilfered/traded from Charr.

** Hopefully this became better with the megaservers they integrated. Now players across all the servers will all be on the same map if it's a low population zone.

*** Well ''that'' was a flop, wasn't it? I remember Anet wanted to avert the AbridgedArenaArray by making the game practical at every zone. Yet it's ''just'' like every other MMORPG... no reason to even leave the capital city. Good going making the events ''balanced around the assumption that there will be other players participating'' too, Anet.

** The lowest-level zones also have consistent populations due to being easy places to get daily achievements. This has especially been the case since they updated the champion foe loot tables and inspired a huge wave of ZergRush farming. AbridgedArenaArray is in play here; either the absolute highest or lowest level zones will have the most activity. Everything in between is going to be a ghost town, even on the most populated servers.
