General Information

The Holdings of Chokhin are an explorable area in Vabbi and are the domain of Prince Mehtu the Wise. His library-palace, the Halls of Chokhin, is located in the northeast. The rest of the Holdings consists mainly of narrow, rocky gorges connecting a few small open areas. The northwestern flatlands are on the edge of a lake that appears to be the source of the Elon, meaning that this area may be of great strategic importance in the future.

The NPC librarians found in the Halls of Chokhin are likely named after people who have contributed to the lore of Guild Wars. Specifically, the Lore Forum of GWO, a popular Guild Wars elite fansite. Each corresponding NPC parodies the personalities and works or research of the person he or she is named in honor of.

For instance, Master Librarian Antohneoss is likely named after the Loremaster of GWO Quintus Antonius, and talks about running the library in a style similar to Quintus's moderation. Other NPCs include:

  • Librarian Ehrahtimos, who talks about the younger librarians being disrespectful (Eratimus-a former lore moderator of GWO)
  • Librarian Mularuk, who speaks of the nature of the Titans (Mularc Templare-wrote a paper on the Titans which was later confirmed in Nightfall)
  • Librarian Nichi the Ranger, who was nicknamed "Ranger" for fieldwork (Ranger Nietzsche-determined experimentally the relative sizes of the various continents)
  • Librarian Kahlidahri, whos focuses on the natural world of Tyria (Kalidri-a GWO moderator, and GW wildlife researcher)
  • Sakutila, who proposes strange battles between NPCs (Scutilla-runs "deathmatches" between various GW characters)
  • Librarian Chitohn, who doubts the validity of the ancient texts (Cthon-believed the Manuscripts were propaganda)
  • Librarian Gahmir Lenon, who speaks on Orr (Gmr Leon-Orrian historian).
