Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Prophecies.

The Flameseeker Prophecies are a collection of proclamations foreseen by the dragon Glint (according to her) over 800 years prior to the present day in Guild Wars Prophecies. They are a collection of predictions concerning the future of Tyria and the survival of humans in the face of great and terrible events that would engulf their world.

It is unknown what the exact prophecies are. Glint seems to be the only one fully aware of the Prophecy, though the Mursaat, the White Mantle, the Lich, the Shining Blade, Turai Ossa and Meerak the Shouter, seem to know at least some of it as well. It is evident by the end of the game that the Flameseeker is none other than the Lich Lord. He seems highly motivated by the prophecies.

Parts of the prophecies seen in game include the men who die defending the wall (as explained by the Old Ascalon Spirit), the fall of the Mursaat, war in the Shiverpeaks, the finding of the Scepter of Orr, and its falling into the hands of the Lich Lord, and the opening of the Door of Komalie. Even the eventual downfall of the Flameseeker was foretold in the prophecies, according to Glint. That he (the Flameseeker) might have missed this while believing the remainder seems unlikely; it is possible that Glint did not actually reveal the final passage of the Prophecies until the events of Hell's Precipice.

It is possible that the Titans were aware of the prophecy, and endowed the Charr with the power necessary to create The Searing. This perhaps set off a chain reaction, resulting in the Chosen leaving Ascalon, retrieving the Scepter of Orr, giving it to the Lich Lord, and, finally, freeing the Titans. Whether this is true or not is all speculation.
