    I'm sorry, that was uncalled for. I dug up some info on him, and this is what came back...

    Net worth: $90 million
    Confused with: A director named Morgan J. Freeman
    Does voiceover with: CBS Morning News

    what makes you think that glacial maw will be the last we see of him?
    Does he ever say how he unlocks the secrets of ascension? I do not understand any of that lore at all the way it's described. It seems patchwork and makes little sense.

    I have doubts that the dissertations of Cosmologist Mann will clarify the matter in any meaningful way...

    But that will not stop him from expounding on his discoveries at great length while you engage in the upcoming Tarken Glacier IAs.

    At.

    Great.

    Length.

    something about "looking at the data"...

    he is a mad scientist, after all. *shrug* once he heard it was possible he'd have collected what information he could then figured out the rest.
    don't forget, the Defiants could do it artificially (though the process seemed to involve ripping extra souls out of captured guardians - start a new defiant char and have a good look around the room you first start in).

    Er.... maybe "inimitable" rather than indomitable?

    IA uses new tech that was introduced with Hammerknell IA to play a VO on quest acceptance. So it only affects people getting the quest - i.e. those in the IA raid.

    We've gotten a lot of new tech for storytelling lately. Most of it concerned with keeping the storytelling elements personal to the player, and mobile. So you get lore while killing monsters without spamming everyone else in the zone. While it wasn't something you would have noticed in Hammerknell, the voices were not broadcast to everyone in the zone, but were played on the client when you accepted the next IA quest.

    Can you tell that I'm excited? I'm super excited!

    Well, so am I - simply because I don't have to listen to stuff I don't want to hear! Works for me!

    Any chance that we might get a livestream about this new tech? I'd love to know more about how it works and what you guys might also be working on in future to keep developing and refining the storytelling process.
