Sounds like someone's not very familiar with GW 1
A) We've never fought the real kingdom of Orr-we've fought the undead from what used to be its border outposts, but Orr itself was lost beneath the sea for hundreds or thousands of years. Now, via the dragons, it has returned to the surface and is a major threat.
B) You never played Eye of the North much, did you? Magitek is the Asura's hat, and it's explicitly stated to be fueled and operated by magic. Granted, in GW 1
, it was mostly their interdimensional portals and golems.
C) I agree.
D) GW 2
takes place hundreds of years after GW 1
. Yes, our characters from GW 1
died and things went to hell in our absence. This does raise the Fridge Logic
question, however: if we're playing as our GW 1
character's descendant... all characters in GW 1
are human, but we can play as a Charr or Asura in GW 2
... for the others, it's at least plausible, if you look up the lore on how the Sylvari originated, and Norns are close enough to human. But the Charr and Asura... squick.
