    Tengu

    Hey guys I was always a fan of the Tengu from Guild Wars 1 and Japanese folklore. I was wondering if there was any art on them from Guild Wars 2 or whether they'd make an NPC appearence.

    I think we'll have to wait for the Cantha expansion for those. And I'm betting they become a playable race as well.

    There were Tengu at Kryta, not much is known about them though.

    Tomoko Eternal Life, Kilik Eternal Sun, Eira Frozen Hearted, Ashara Emberlight,
    Vuug The Deceiver, Grash Gravebuilder, Asgaut Divine Soul, Lera Dreamstealer

    I expect to see a reference/npc somewhere at least. Such a cool race.

    I agree with that theory. I just remember reading something about a city in Tyria that had them so I was hoping they had some art up though playing a Tengu would be amazing

    Aye, I know what Kryta is. I was just trying to recall the island that is just off of Kryta. Isle of the winds or something like that.

    I know that there is the Quetzal (a Tengu tribe) on the tarnished coast.

    Edit: Caromi, that is the name of the tribe of Tengu that lives in Kryta. Had to look it up.

    I would love to see the Tengu become a playable race later. Considering they gave the Norn a "Crow Spirit Form", I could easily see them making this, centaurs, kodan, etc, become playable.

    And they would be the first AWESOME company on my list. Blizzard would move down to #2.

    Dominion of Winds is their sorta section where Sanctum Kay used to be. But it's not accessible in the initial release. But there's some in the jungles.

    It's just Kryta; Nebo Terrace/North Kryta Province.

    Tengu

    Dominion of Winds

    There's all we have. They were expelled from Cantha, and are now residing where Sanctum Cay/Kessex Peak used to be, with some possibly in the Maguuma. Expect to see them in GW2 at some point. Kinda surprised we haven't had a blog about them... yet. I would love to see them playable, as would many others.

    That means they are still in Tyria, I'm wondering if we can approach them as well.

    I kinda wonder what happened to the Avicara Tengu from the Southern Shiverpeaks, maybe got corrupted by Jormag, maybe got welcomed into the Dominion of Winds...

    Fuck. Mineral. Springs.

    It has like 4 unique elites and only 1 entrance. Though, next time I go through I'll get a new set of armor infused.
