The Maguumas Waste isnt accessible on game launch if im not mistaken? (Yes, it is called Maguuma Waste, not Maguuma Jungle in GW2.) For those who didnt understand what i meant, Primordus is living underground and currently is underneath Asuras and Sylvaris 1-15 lvling zone.
It is called the Maguuma Jungle. The Maguuma Wastes is a subregion inside the Maguuma Jungle. The only available subregion of that region available on release is the Tarnished Coast, which is the Asura and Sylvari area. Here is a map to visualize it. http://wiki.guildwars2.com/images/1/..._Tyria_map.jpg
And no, he isn't. That is only speculation. If you can provide an actual source, it would be great. Primordus resides in the Depths of Tyria, which isn't limited to the Tarnished Coast.
GuildMag: On the Ghosts of Ascalon map, the Maguuma Jungle seems to be called the Maguuma Wastes. Is it no longer called the Maguuma Jungle or is it just the top, dry portions seen in GW1 that are now called Maguuma Wastes?
Jeff Grubb: The northern parts of the Maguuma Jungle have dried out, creating the wastes (the southern regions, where the asura and sylvari have set up their nations, are considered part of the Tarnished Coast). This change has been attributed to the rise of the Elder Dragons, but that has not been confirmed, and there may be other nefarious agents at work.http://www.guildmag.com/gmblitz-lore...ith-jeff-grubbGuildMag: Primordus was the first one to awake. While (most of) the other dragons moved places (be it raising a continent or flying south), Primordus decided to stay in the Depths of Tyria. Why did it decide to stay there?
Jeff Grubb: Primordus has remained beneath the surface, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t moved around. He has been clearing huge tracks of the underground regions of the world, and his activities have sent a number of other races to the surface, including one that the asura are all-too-familiar with – the rodential skritt. As a result of his activities, the minions of Primordus can be found almost anywhere on the surface.

Well i will try to find a proper source, but i say this because there was earthquakes in Rata Sum and one would asume that Primordus was the reason for this seeing how he was the one underground.
Yeah it was Primordus. The Asura unknowingly built the Central Transfer Chamber right next to him because of the energy he was giving off.
Also, see link in my sig >:D
Also - I thought the earthquakes around rata sum were his champion, not Primordus himself - you know...just to be pedantic
...I always felt it was weird why the central transfer chamber was over in the shiverpeaks on the map but clearly it should be somewhere over near rata sum. Just weird.

Also, it's primarily Zhaitan cutting off our connection to other nations/continents. When he rose, he also raised a vast undead army, complete with ships.
Also, if by "dungeon" you mean "personal story that's located in Arah" then you're correct about that.
And finally, these dragons have not "just" woken up, they've been awake for years, the first of them for two centuries. Primordus awoke in 1120 AE. Jormag awoke in 1165 AE. Zhaitan awoke in 1219 AE. Kralkatorrik awoke in 1320 AE.
The year of GW2 at release will be 1327 AE.

I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.
If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.
@Drake, Primordus went back to sleep after awakening in 1120, i'll send source later. Dunno why u wrote the asura and sylvari part as i nowhere stated that they lived underground, but Primordus was. Also, Zhaitan isnt the main reason connection from Elona has been cut, Kralkatorrik is. Zhaitan will be the only encounterable dragon on release in Arah (dungeon.) Never said if it was explorable mode or story mode.
Who knows where their main cities were though...maybe they wanted to get as far away from ol' Primordus as possible.
Oh, just so we are clear, the place we're talking about was in the Shiverpeaks right?

You're both wrong.
However, Zhaitan is also responsible for cutting off connection to Cantha and all sea routes. So Drake is correct on that.
And also, yes. A source on that would be nice. You might be confusing the dates. He "stirred" in 1078, but did not awaken. He awoke in 1120 and he and his minions have continued to be active since then.

Palawa Joko's stranglehold on the crystal desert is cited as the main reason for Elona's isolation, long before Kralkatorrik awoke, but yh he's just made it worse.

I guess they did just want to get far far away from the shiverpeaks. I guess some of their main cities were close to the shiverpeaks then.
Also, didn't know Primordus had changed locations...where he at?
He basically rules the Depths now. He also quite the architect, apparently he's been excavating a little bit. I predict his expansion will take place in the Maguuma Jungle, and to the north of that like the Isles of Janthir and possibly the Verdant Forest.
I just gather this from the trials of elimination, it's all that's left basically.
Kralkatorrik: The area south of Ascalon, Crystal Desert, Elona
Jormag: Far Shiverpeaks, Charr Homelands, possible the Verdant Forest
