Is noone interested why dwarves never made it to GW2?
They are playing an important role in EOtN campaign and every other race in EOtN is now in GW2.
They are small, stubborn, brave and greedy. I find them really awesome.
Probably fond of them because Lord of the rings trilogy, I love Gimli
You could say that Asura race is replacing them, but they have really different characteristics.
I would love to play dwarf in GW2, what do you think?
All of the dwarves eventually participated in the ritual. There are no non-stone dwarves in Tyria. - Ree Soesbee

They all went the way of the Great Dwarf. And turned to stone (sort of). So, they're simply... gone... (stone dwarves don't reproduce very well...)Lady Rhonwyn (sister of Danea, Katlinel, Gwendydd, and the rest)

Dwarves aren't completely gone...just in complete isolation, basically. They are keeping the destroyers below the surface, so they are rarely seen.

As far as having them as a playable race, I'm not quite sure what they would offer us. Aside from being short and their beliefs, there wasn't much difference between them and humans. They were a bit more mechanically inclined, but that went the way of the Charr in GW2, with their guns and mechanical structures we've seen in their cities.

They didn't ALL become stone, but a lot of them did. Tons of people of all races were killed by the dragons' resurfacing. Presumably, the dwarf population is very, very small during GW2.
Kind of wonder if they'll be extinct later on or make a comeback. We'll have to start keeping them in captivity and forcing them to breed like tigers.

I seem to remember an interview where they confirmed that all dwarves were turned to stone eventually.
Also, I don't get the fascination with dwarves. There are so many more original races than that in the fantasy genre...

So they all turned to stone
Well fine, no dwarves then..
Story around them is so well created, they are usually the smallest race and always frustrated about their height so they are trying to proove themselves as great warriors to other races.
Dirty, greedy, stubborn, easily offended little creatures.
The thing I like about them is that they have a lot of negative characteristic, they are not pure and noble like most of the others races, but still able to show good, righteous side that rarely pops up.
Probably a lot of things that are opposite of what I am in real life
Also, that is a LOT more than what we know about current races in GW2
Norn are big warriors that love fighting, and slylvari are all about nature and peace, they are pure and love exploring, Charr love war and don't respect any other race or even members in their own race, Humans are noble and they worship gods, their strenght is in unity. Asurans are smart, intelligent blabla.
I just feel more layers could be added to races, like dwarves have. Then I might started to enjoy them more or get really interested about their history and culture.
But maby that's just me

I still don't think they all turned to stone, but it sounds like the ones that didn't turn to stone died. So, either way, all dwarves are stone in GW2.
The fight between the Dwarves and the Destroyers consumed the Dwarven race. Few lived to return to the surface and tell the tale of their victory—and those who did had been irrevocably altered. No longer made of flesh and bone, no blood pumped through their veins. Instead, they found their bodies composed entirely of stone surrounding nothing but cold, hard earth.
I'm reading between the lines a bit (plus, having finished EotW, I know they all didn't take the blessing).
