I would of course still recommend checking out the video, even if I can't show off so to speak. Whoever edited together the cut-scenes did a good job of pacing it with the music imho
Background: Guild Wars 2 was originally released as a pay once, play forever game. Later it got first one and then another major expansion and the base game is now completely free.
One of the expansions, Path of Fire takes place in the desert provinces of Elonia. A place that is very reminiscent of ancient Egypt. Deserts, sand, mountains, a giant river and wetlands, irrigation and what was once a thriving culture. The Lich now rules most of Elonia, but in places they still remember The Six. Just like the Elder Dragons, there seems to be some importance to the number Six for balance purposes. 2 of the gods are known to have been disposed of, but only once was truly killed and destroyed. A human warrioress, Kormir, became the vessel for the power released when Abadon was destroyed, or the cataclysmic results of his destruction could have destroyed the world.
The gods used to live in Orr before they departed and Arah (capital city of Orr and home of the gods) was known as the golden city. Krytans, Orrians, Ascalonians, Canthians (a far East inspired part of the world) and last but not least, the Elonians raised many statues and sculptures as a tribute to the gods.
Just a few of the gods... Grenth, the god of death. Was the child of a human father and a divine mother. He and his followers bested the god Dhuum, who got banished forever to the Halls of Torment.
Lyssa, the twin goddess of beauty and illusions.
Balthazar, the god of war and fire... who also happens to be the main antagonist in the Path of Fire expansion. Since his minions, "The Forged", part living, part forged metal, part fire are ravaging both the dead and the living inhabitants of Elonia, they don't really love him that much anymore (hence the funny statue)
As Taimi (the diminutive Asura girl) put it at some point when you discover who you're up against: Commander, just to recap, did you just pick a fight with the god of war? You: Shut up Taimi (paraphrased)
