    Honor I can imagine, but noble? They might talk noble, but another major aspect of the sylvari is their curiousity. And I wonder, do those two properties mix?
    Imagine the noblest person you can think of, and now imagine him looking around like a child and touching everything around him. Asking direct questions about mundane things. (Caith in the books behaves somewhat like this).

    Not very noble.

    ...and pollen shakes from their flesh.
    Why would the Sylvari produce pollen if they do not procreate?

    I loved the new video though, absolutely amazing. The music, and the atmosphere of the forest are epic.

    I remember long, long ago Anet suggested climbing in GW2; from the looks of it, well, it doesn't really. I would love to climb though, it would make exploring so much more fun!

    You might be able to climb via stairs though. Or a wine circling the plant all the way to the top.

    Maybe that was the wrong word, since it's basically all symphonic. What I meant is that it's much more interesting and less ambient than the GW1 soundtrack. There's more stuff going on, and it works great as a Soundtrack. So far, everything I heard so far from GW2 is MUCH better than GW1, although GW1 also had it's moments (quite a lot from Factions is great).

    I think it would be cool, when player's Sylvari are born, they come from a pod that blossoms in real-time view of other players in the outpost.

    1. Mandarin Chinese - 882 million
    2. Spanish - 325 million
    3. English - 312-380 million
    4. Arabic - 206-422 million
    5. Hindi - 181 million
    6. Portuguese - 178 million
    7. Bengali - 173 million
    8. Russian - 146 million
    9. Japanese - 128 million
    10. German - 96 million

    By your reckoning we should all go learn Chinese (or Spanish if you don't count Chinese due to the fact they're all in the same place or something).

    Btw, Spanish is early to learn as well , though I haven't retained all that much from my school days I don't remember it being fairly easy.
    That's the numbers for native speakers. Check the numbers for people who know a language instead - far more than 300 million know English (and almost every Chinese citizen knows Mandarin, though they are not always native speakers of it).

    Spanish is of fairly low difficulty, in general the Romance languages are easier to learn than the Germanic ones (English excluded) though.

    There, now when I've told you how wrong you are, you just need to feel ashamed about yourself!

    I just started reading the Mahabharata. Don't think I'd try reading the unabridged version in Sanskrit. It would take me a while. There's about chapters in it, just about dharma. yikes!

    Don't force a cleanup by the Green Team with this off topic language/localization talk. Please stay on topic

    Gorani

    On topic (from the Talk Tyria interview):

    The Nightmare Court began during the time of the Secondborn sylvari (the second generation of sylvari born from the tree, about six or seven years after the Firstborn).
    That does imply waves of creation or at least some time frames in which the Pale Tree needed to produce Sylvari in larger numbers

    about 23 years ago - Firstborn (twelve Sylvari, including Caithe and Faolain; 4 are the Elders that lead the cylces (Dawn, Noon, Dusk & Night; that leaves 6 Firstborn within the Grove or at least the limits of the forest, as only Caithe & Faolain have traveled outside the Sylvari lands)
    about 17 to 16 years ago - Secondborn (this is when the Nightmare Court started)

    Even if the Pale Tree picked up speed at creating (player characters a created during a "day cycle", there might be less Sylvari out there than Norn.
