    The battle is versus The Shaterer who is like Kralkatorrik´s commander.

    Yeah Kralkatorrik is as big as a small country...

    He's the only one set for release. 

    That´s not correct... there are at least 5 Dragons in GW2:

    Zhaitan, the Undead Dragon

    Zhaitan will be the primary antagonist at the start of Guild Wars 2 and rightfully so. He awakens in 1219 AE (131 years after Lion’s Arch is retaken and 106 years before the start of GW2) on the sunken peninsula that once contained the great human Kingdom of Orr. As he awakes he brings the landmass back from the seabed causing massive damage from the tidal waves to the nearby Corsairs calling the broken islands of Orr their home, as well as the coasts along southern Tyria (flooding Lion’s Arch in the process). Zhaitan then enslaves the walking undead of Orr and brings the Corsairs ships up out of the water and uses them to block access to the rest of the world. He essentially comes out with a bang.

    Since he’s the first dragon players will do battle against it can be assumed that the primary goal of the game will be the assault of Orr and the push into Arah, where he is currently residing. Can you take down this fearsome dragon? We won’t find out until the game launches proper. Nothing much is known about him beyond his power to raise the dead and him being the first main enemy in the GW2 series.

    Jormag, the Ice Dragon

    Jormag awakens in 1165 within Drakkar Lake (he can currently be seen there in GW:EN) at which point he’ll begin assaulting the Norn within the Northern Shiverpeaks. The Norn will fall in battle due to the fact that they each want to fight alone against him and will lose their land having to flee to the Southern Shiverpeaks. The Norn are currently engaged in battle with Jormag and his minions in order to retake their homelands.

    Interesting Fact: The Sons of Svanir are a Norn cult dedicated to Jormag and work against the forces of good. For those of you who have played through the norn storyline in GW:EN, the “Norn Bear” quest line is just a small taste of the kind of influence Jormag will have over his shapeshifting followers in Guild Wars 2.

    Kralkatorrik, the Crystal Dragon

    Kralkatorrik will be the latest dragon to awake when you begin the game, awakening in 1320 AE within the Grothmar Wardowns inside of the Charr Homeland (currently visible in that location). He’ll make his way from there through the land once known as Ascalon and into the Crystal Desert where he’ll reside within the location currently known as Glint’s Lair. On his flight south, he’ll leave behind the Dragonbrand, a large area of land turned to crystal where his retainers reside within.

    image

    Pictured above, The Shatterer is a dragon that terrorizes the Dragonbrand, a massive scar in the landscape left in the wake of Kralkatorrik's flight south into the Crystal Desert.

    This brand will also cut the human stronghold Ebonhawke off from the rest of the former kingdom of Ascalon. Between the charr (who notably consider Gwen, one of Ebonhawk’s founders, to be a bloodthirsty villain), the minions of Kralkatorrik spilling out of the Brand, and the many ghosts of Ascalon’s great war with the charr, the people of Ebonhawke certainly face many challenges ahead.

    Meanwhile, due to the Crystal Dragon’s presence in the desert, direct access to Elona has been cut off. However, the Crystal Desert itself is also of special significance in Tyrian history. It is here that adventurers formerly reached a state of Ascension with the help of Turai Ossa, enabling them to overcome not only the Mursaat, but the Titans which the Lich attempted to unleash upon Tyria. Going even further back, the Forgotten Ones, a race of snakelike creatures that predates the arrival of humans in Tyrian lore, were also known to inhabit the region.

     The “Unnamed Dragon” or Deep Sea Dragon

    There is a dragon residing within the sea and no information is currently available on it, other than a short mention in the following interview:

    The DSD (Deep Sea Dragon) is a fave on the boards primarily because we’ve been so quiet about it. Part of the reason for our reticence is that it does not yet have as much direct impact on our five primary races. I mean, you have four impossibly huge and deadly dragons to start with, and you want a fifth? Oooookay.

    Primordus, the Fire Dragon

    Primordus resides within the depths of Tyria (seen awakening in the final cinematic in GW:EN) and is the first to awaken in 1120 AE. His forces previously attempted to invade Tyria, led by the Great Destroyer (a simple minion within his vast army), but were defeated by a group of adventurers and the Dwarves after making a great sacrifice to turn themselves to stone to fight the Great Destroyer.

    After he awakens the stone guardians guard the exits from the depths keeping Primordus and his minions locked deep away within the bowels of Tyria. Surprisingly, not much else is known and Primordus will not be the main dragon at the start of the game that players will face off against.

    Well that’s the Eldar Dragons in Guild Wars 2. Are you excited to fight these beasts or are you worried that the forces of Tyria won’t be enough to defeat them all? Come to the Ten Ton Hammer community forums and share your thoughts.

    Thanks for that info on the dragons it tells alot of the history to of when the rose to power and what came after that. Also didn't A-net say in an enterview that there would be others in later expansions?

    Looks great. Thanks OP. However, am i the only one that thinks that it's going to be really weird and kind off stupid to have only 5 people do this dungeon?

    Nope. Confirmed in the wiki and interviews. Just google Zhaitan dungeon.

    Kind off funny, the game doesn't have raids and a 25 man run would fit perfectly with this. You need 10 players to defeat the Shatterer and other events of that type, but only need 5 for the big boss. I know, they'll probably use NPC to pilot those ships, but still, LOL.
