… and sometimes tear up a bit. This time, with no advance notice, we heard @ElixabethClaire mention that a NPC called Historian Goshkia had been spotted in the Imperators Core in the Black Citadel. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Gaiscioch, we always tell folks that it’s pronounced “gosh-kia”, so this was a bit of an eyebrow raiser for us. When yesterday’s one-hour stress test was announced, I knew immediately that I wanted to go find this Historian and see if it was true.
Folks, he’s there. And he tells the grand tale of Rall Oldroar, a great Charr hero and mentor.
The real Oldroar wanted to play a Charr, and now his voice, his leadership abilities, and his love for teaching others has been immortalized in-game. This, along with the Sanctum of Rall server name, and now Syp’s daughter being given an NPC in the game just goes to show how much heart and passion that ArenaNet has for their community. Thank you ArenaNet for everything that you have done for us fans throughout the development of Guild Wars 2. We are wishing you a FANTASTIC headstart and launch, and much success afterwards. You totally deserve it!
