When i was reading my manuals again(i love those) i was reading the part of saul d'alesio.drunk gambler, bla,bla. Got expelled from kryta, bla , bla, And THEN he got into a jungle(Maguuma forest). and there he found mursaat.

Somewhere else in my manual there were maguuma druids(they THINK they have extincted) .

Conclusion: Mursaat come from maguuma jungle and druids to...maybe there's a link? I may be obsessed with this game and you may think i'm ill but still..:laugh:

This belongs in the Lore forums.

But the Mursaat are not the Maguuma Druids.

It has been theorized that the Mursaat actually wiped out the Maguuma Druids, but this seems rather unlikely. More likely, they are two distinct cultures operating in completely different regions of the Jungle.

As far as we know, the Maguuma Druids ascended to a higher plane and essencially became one with the Jungle. This happened somewhere from a century to a decade ago, as some reports mention them disappearing 100 years ago, and some report only 10 years.

You can still meet some of the Druids of Maguuma throughout the game. One way is to do the Druidic Wisdom quest, obtained from the Avatar of Dwayna in Druid's Overlook. Druidic spirits also appear in the Bloodstone Fen mission, and you seek out a druidic spirit, Dark Oak, as part of the Blood and Smoke quest.

Yes, I was refering to those spirits when I said they ascended to a higher plane, as they take on the apperance of the representative of Melandru, and are one with the forest spirit itself. That is how we know what happened to the Druids, through contact with their ascended forms.

Just a note The Druids of Maguuma did not ascend like the Mursaat, they transcended. They became spirits.

Think of it like this - In the lore of Star wars, Obi Wan transcended when he became one with the force after Vader struck him down. "You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

Yes, thank you for the clarification. The word choice I used did not adequetly convey the meaning I sought to bring across. Transcending is ascending to another plane of existance, but rather than say all that, transcend is a much better word to use.

I know this thread is like...dead, but i dont know if anyone noticed this (http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Melandru):


And it was that a tribe of godless humans wandered the land. Where camped did they lay waste, senselessly destroying everything nearby.

And so the tribe set out to find another camp, when suddenly sprouted a wall of thorny branches, which blocked their exit.

Then saith Ewan, leader of the tribe, Know ye our ways. Whosoever does magic in this tribe shall be put to death.

Yet none comes forward. Then, from the earth grows forth a large tree, and unfurling its branches, reveals the upper torso of a woman. Saith She, I am Melandru, Mother of earth and nature. Henceforth I bind ye to these lands. When they suffer, so shall ye suffer.

And as She saith, so was it done. From their limbs sprouted branches, and the blood in their veins was the sap of trees. Then was Ewan and his tribe converted, and became they stewards of nature.

-- Scriptures of Melandru: 48 BE

Steward (http://www.wordreference.com/definition/steward)= custodian, keeper, one having charge of buildings or grounds or animals.

Is this the creation of the Druids? :) Sorry if this is meant to be in a new thread. or if it has been discused before.

I'd have to say yes, to that one, Apu.
