There are many strong races in the Guild Wars universe, but one very strong race, the Norn, will be playable in Guild Wars 2. Who are the Norn and what has happened to them in the long period of time since the defeat of the Great Destroyer? Find out here at Ten Ton Hammer.

The movement of the world is cruel to every race and the Norn are not able to easily escape this fact. The dragon, Jormag (which can be seen now in GW in Drakkar Lake outside of Sifhalla) awakes 50 years after Primordus (the fiery dragon) and begins to send his minions against the Norn. The Norn attempt resist, but their stubbornness to fight alone causes them to being to lose the war. They then retreat into the Shiverpeaks into the old Dwarven fortresses and begin building anew, getting ready to fight once more.

The Races of GW2: Norn is now available. Next up we'll be going over a certain cat like war race. Stay tuned for more!
