    Default The Many Faces of Teth

    So... how many Teths are there exactly? 40?

    :P

    I wonder how a Tenebrean came across that kind of power in the first place.

    How many in game? More than that.

    How many in the lore? Teth is all the mortal bodies that shared an ascended soul's journey through reincarnation from the beginning of a universe to its end.

    Holy Moses o.o I hope to God that we aren't faced with all of them at the same time. Besides the ones we've already killed / able to kill.

    There's 55 in the achieve.

    As for a fight where we face all of them....I can see it now: "Haha, mortal. Can you even comprehend my might? Look at how your mind [fps] collapses into oblivion at the sight of my many forms. Bow before the 1fps god of doom!"

    So what you're saying is that every player character is of the shame souls journey of the souls 6/7 souls that have shared their journey with mortal bodies.

    And that when we die, it's just being reincarnated, not resurrected,

    I haven't done the new zone yet, I'm just going off what you said.
    If ascended souls create links with the bodies they are housed in, then that should mean all PC ascended are linked, and not just to a few bytes of data in an database server farm somewhere. lol

    No. I said no such thing.

    Actually I believe there is. Though I doubt she made the journey over to Telara.

    If such a fight exists, the Achievement for THAT should be:

    "Army of Me: Somehow you are the equivalent of 55 of yourself. You're not entirely sure how the math works on that one, but there it is."

    I feel like I'm missing a big chunk of lore somewhere in regards to this question. I've done the entire PTW quest (at least the part that's been released), and I witnessed some of the Teths... But I haven't really seen anything that made me think there was a ton of them.

    Is this something that's revealed in the new 5-man? Because I haven't done that yet.

    Check out some of the new rifts in PTW, hunt some rares, and wait for Act 2 and 3.

    ... We are never going to see the end of Teth are we?

    He's soooo going to be worse than Reggie, Crucia and Arak.

    Well, yah.... since "he" seems to be something of a mega multiple personality - with a LOT of issues....
    People who circumscribe their lives to conform to the narrow expectations of others get exactly what they deserve.

    Rifts, introduced in 3.4, seem to often (if not always) feature Teth <something> as final stage targets, and these guys and gals really like to give speeches and to provide us with insight into history of Wilds, nature of Teth themselves, or new concepts like Turning Point.

    Teth Caelum: I am Teth Caelum. I chose this land because of the bahmi's connection to their ancestral spirits.
    Teth Caelum: They flashed with greatness, lighting up the world like thunder.
    Teth Caelum: Who better to give me the radiance I need than the abandoned children of godlike spirits.
    Teth Caelum: But the Shalistiri reached out across the planar divide and embraced their children once more.
    - from new Air rift, amusingly, found at Tarken Glacier ("this land", right).

    Other bits of lore are present in description of artifacts and artifact sets. For example, there are separate lists of some animal and "nightmarish" forms of Teth, which are, of course, not guaranteed to be found in game.
