The second day of Sylvari Week brought a new blog article by Angel McCoy, one of the many talented writers for Guild Wars 2. As promised, we have several audio clips along with details on how the sylvari were designed by ArenaNet and born into the world of Guild Wars. Today, for the third day of Sylvari Week, we have a small blog post and video made by Kristen Perry and Ree Soesbee on the sylvari, including in-game footage of the plant-like race.
Sylvari arrive in the world fully grown. They emerge from pods that grow on the Pale Tree: a magical, sentient tree with its roots deep in Tyria and its branches in the Dream. They leave the Dream—a mystical place where sylvari memories are collected—and incubate in their pods, then emerge into the world. They bring with them a spectator’s understanding of how the world works, having witnessed aspects of it while in the Dream. Their first few days in the world are critical, and they’re met by mentors and other newly awakened who help them find their way.Sylvari Birth
