Primordus (GW2)  

Primordus was the first of the Elder Dragons to awaken in Tyria. Encased in stone and initially supposed to awaken in 1078 AE, Primordus' awakening was delayed by two generations upon the defeat of its most powerful general, the Great Destroyer, finally awakening in 1120 AE. After its rise, the other ancient dragons began to stir, one by one.

After its awakening, its minions the destroyers, which are rock and stone given life by the dragon's breath, flooded the Depths of Tyria, crushing any hopes the asura had of returning to their natural home. Many of the remaining dwarves, now too creatures of stone, stand watch at entrances to the Depths, ensuring that Primordus' minions never reach the surface. Others traveled into the caverns to do battle directly with Primordus and its servants, a battle that presumably rages on to this day.


  • Primordus' original resting place was in a cavern, deep underground, where it was assumed by the asura to simply be a statue emitting a high amount of magical energy. For this reason, they built the Central Transfer Chamber near the dragon.
  • Primordus' minions were already met in the original game as the Destroyers.
