I'm immensely excited for GW2 but one of the things I'm looking forward to are hopeful links and references to GW1 characters and events, like Gwen, Devona,Mhenlo, Eve and Cynn. Whether this is done in a dungeon that is based of the underworld or some readable lore somewhere in game would be awesome and similar ways to find out about the searing,defeating the titans, the dwarves sacrifice. Maybe a way to link some items in your home instance such as books that explain the story from the perspective of one of your GW1 characters assuming you have one and if you don't the text is nameless and describes a forgotten hero?
What links or references would like to see to GW1? the same cheesy but awesome titles? characters and events? or would you rather the lore was left a mystery and only the present/future of the GW universe was focused on?
