Perhaps this thread should go in the "General Discussion" section, but I put it in "Lore" because you guys are usually more educated about the background and progression of the game.
So it looks like Rift is presenting an opportunity for us to kill all of the dragons in raids. Granted, that's really the role of an Ascended anyway, right? Killing them makes Telara safe. But then I started to wonder --- Once they're all dead, our "role" in the game seems to go away. We won't really have a "purpose" anymore (except to kill some rogue goblins, etc.)
Any speculation as to where Trion is leading us?
