Living World Season 5: “The Icebrood Saga” begins Sept 17th

“You do not fear death, you fear something far worse…
you fear outliving the ones you swore to protect…
You fear the day your children no longer feel the chill of the frost… or the warmth of the flame.
It is this fear that is your enemy. Not I.”

Legends in Profile: Ventari

Ventari_Tree

Ventari, centaur and advocate of peace, is the third revealed legend for the Revenant. The support and healing gameplay of the legend are a solid fit for Ventari’s legacy as a peacemaker.

Of the legends revealed so far, Ventari is certainly the one with the most visible effect on Tyria. Sylvari players for sure, as well as other players, have heard sylvari NPCs talk about Ventari and his tablet, which he left behind to guide those that would come after him, though he didn’t know an entire race would take his tenets to heart.
