THE GUILD WARS 2 BLOG KREWE THINK THE KRAIT WOULD MAKE NICE SHOES AND HANDBAGS!
Krait | Aquatic Evil in Guild Wars 2One of the non-playable races in Guild Wars 2, the Krait are an evil species of water-dwelling creatures with a society driven by religious fanaticism.
The Krait first appeared in throughout the Tarnished Coast, Arbor Bay and Magus Stones areas of Tyria and now they're back... meaner, stronger and more dangerous than ever before.
Incredibly vicious creatures, the Krait in GW2 have a serpent-like appearance, being covered in scales with a long tail, a horned, lizard-like head and humanoid torso and arms.
A unique feature of the Krait is their ability to change their physical appearance when they are close to death. It is then, in a type of religious frenzy, that they can "shape-shift", transforming into a more powerful form which can be even more difficult to defeat. TIP: Kill them quickly before they get the chance to transform!
It is in these aquatic cities that they lay eggs in underwater hatcheries and build arenas for gladiatorial combat where both males and females are given education and battle training.
A sinister feature of these cities are the massive pillars that stretch to the surface, serving as slave-pens for Hyleks, Humans and other air-breathing captives. Here they are held in small chambers at the top, above the water, until it's time for them to be sacrificed or eaten.
Due in large part to their aquatic lifestyle, which provides them with both an environmental defence and a distinct battlefield advantage over air-breathing foes, the Krait have never been conquered. They're convinced that THEY are the superior species in the world and don't believe themselves to be defeatable.
In Guild Wars 2, YOU get to test that theory as you experience swimming and underwater combat with the evil that is the Krait. You may even be able to solve the mystery of the obelisks!
