OK. It has been revealed The Elder Godwar will be coming out as a 4 part saga each month starting July 26, 2021.

The first front is The Nodon Front, featuring the Nodon Dragonkin under the command of Kerapac enslaved by Jas.

Anybody has any theories on what the other 3 fronts will be?

Ful should be pretty straight forward: Tok-Haar.
Lots of Tok-Haar

Likely to be the third option for players who get Tz-Haar Slayer Tasks as a new higher level area.
Remember that the Fight cauldron gives better XP per kill and it is safe, but it might or might be better XP/hour than other options.

This place would likely give players a better option to do those tasks.

Wouldn't be stunned if there was a Jad 3.0 as the boss for players who get that particular soul reaper task.

Yeah, Ful's front will clearly be the TokHaar. I assume this will include some sort of Mining and Smithing content on the skilling side of their front. The other two Elder Gods are a much bigger mystery, given how little we actually know about them.

Bik is associated with earth, plantlife, and organic matter, which casts a really wide net. To me, this suggests some sort of Woodcutting/Fletching content on the skilling side, but as to what her army will look like, it's much less clear. The only creatures we've seen tied to Bik are the BikKra attendants from Heart of Stone, which were golems. Could we be looking at an Ent or Golem boss along the lines of Solak?

Wen is an even bigger mystery as we've yet to see any creature directly connected to her aside from the WenKra. We know that she's associated to ice and the cold. Given the WenKra took great offense to our use of magic, I imagine this means she'll be the Magic side of the combat triangle to Ful's melee and Bik's ranged, so I guess that means Crafting and Runecrafting could be on the table? As for a boss... frankly, I've haven't the foggiest. Maybe some sort of sentient storm?

The teaser image for Elder Godwars has Elder Gods symbols in this order: Jas (hexagon), Bik (triangle), Wen (square) and Ful (pentagon). And we have confirmation now that the first front will be from Jas so is it possible that this will be release order of the fronts? Bik being the second, Wen the third and Ful the fourth?

Quite possible. Good catch.

As a side note, I find it interesting that Jas is the one leading the charge. She's the only Elder God whose egg isn't at risk (as she already sacrificed her chance at rebirth when she turned her egg into the Stone of Jas, so she's already not going to survive the Great Revision), so she's the one with the least to lose if they lose this war. She's admittedly the strongest of the Elder Gods, but if Sansa is correct about the order, they won't be attacking us in order of strength (as Ful is the second strongest, followed by Wen, then Bik)

It's possible there's no greater meaning behind whatever the order of attacks ends up being, of course. Just makes me wonder.

I don't know. Will we have to fight zaros in one of the fronts or will he be still absent and still in erebus?


I highly doubt we'll be fighting him in the Elder God Wars. I won't be surprised if he doesn't appear until the end of the war, perhaps finishing off the Elder Gods with whatever he finds in Erebus (or if he doesn't appear at all, and the start of the next plot arc is us going into Erebus after him)

The Nodon Front has been revealed. WoW!!! A lot of new interesting items revealed. We are going to get not just new gear, codex, abilities but also upgrade to our cannons and coils.

The World Guardian is going to fight Kerapac, and hard mode comes together with the normal mode.
