After clearing the Shing Jea Island of Afflicted, the island became filled with this new group of enemies call Scavengers. Very little info is given about them. I am wondering if anyone has any clue of what they are. And I wonder if they will play a large role in the up coming story line.
Fact 1) They are very well trained and powerful.
So it is unlikely that they are just peasants from the nearby villages. If the villagers were so strong, they would have removed the Afflicted themselves. They might also be backed by a powerful group and leader. However these are all speculations.
Fact 2) They dress like peasants and villagers.
Does this mean they are actually peasants, or just pretending to be? We will find out.
Fact 3) The Crimson Skulls are no longer on the island.
Does that mean that these Scavengers were the Crimson Skulls? Or did they killed off all the Crimson Skulls and taken over the island?
Fact 4) The Scavengers have 3 randomized skill bars for each class.
Anet spent more time designing their skill bars than the Am Fah and Jade Brotherhood. Does this mean that they will play an important role later on?
What do you guys think?
