"some Margonite ruins in the Crystal Desert would seem to have been built only after the waters had been boiled away from the desert"[edit source]
Just wondering if anyone can point out which ruins the quotation might be referring to. I do not recall any that gave me the impression on my journeys in the Crystal Desert. -User:PanSola (talk to the ) 20:33, 26 May 2007 (CDT)

Something I Noticed[edit source]
This may be interesting...the Skeleton Army in Kryta and the Margonites use the same name scheme (Example: Bowmaster for Rangers, Cleric for Monks, Executioner for Warriors). I think this may be more than a coincidence, since Vizier Khilbron (AKA The Undead Lich) was under Abaddon's control when he reanimated the Orrians...What do you think about this? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Silver40596 (contribs) .
- That's very interesting how neat it seems to match up like that.. almost exactly, with one exception. Skeleton Bowmaster/Margonite Bowmaster (Ranger); Executioner/Margonite Executioner (Warrior); Damned Cleric/Margonite Cleric (Monk); Zombie Warlock/Margonite Warlock (Necromancer); Skeleton Sorcerer/Margonite Sorcerer (Elementalist); Only exception are Skeleton Mesmer/Margonite Seer for Mesmers, and of course Ascendants and Reapers due to the professions not being in the Prophecies campaign. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but it's certainly very interesting. --Valentein 18:19, 7 June 2007 (CDT)
Profession Contradictions[edit source]
Does anyone else find it odd that although the Margonites worship Abaddon, they don't actually have a profession whose patron god is Abaddon? In fact the patron gods of the Margonites is the other 5 gods depending upon their profession. This makes absolutely no sense.
Well, they never actually said that, right? I mean, if you look at their skillbars, I don't think any of them have any skills that contain the names of the Gods. For example, Clerics don't use Balthazar's Aura, Bowmasters don't use Melandru's Resilience, etc. I guess they somehow channel their magic through Abaddon. Just because someone belongs to a profession doesn't necessarily mean they rely completely on the patron God's power. The Mantle, for example--they completely renounced the Gods and still used magic.
If I remember right, Abaddon used to be the god of water and knowledge. At least Margonite Sorcerers use some Water Magic.

Vulnerable to elemental damage[edit source]
I have noticed that all margonite casters take extra damage from elemental damage, I have tested all four elemental types of damage and they took extra damage from all four.--Glass 21:04, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
I hate these guys[edit source]
They are much more overpowered then the mursaat, afflicted or destroyers. Anyone agree? 22.214.171.124 01:22, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
- Actually no, I find these quite pathetic tbh =/
- Now, if you were talking about Torment creatures, I'd agree except on the destroyers point. --Shadowcrest 01:24, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
- Well, we do get all those ridiculous pve skills in GWEN so I never found destroyers too bad, they're pretty slow too. Also henchies stand together making them very vulnerable to margonite dervs and eles. 126.96.36.199 01:30, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
Name Origin[edit source]
I was looking at the name just now, and noticed it seems very similar to a Greek verb, Μαργάν (Margan), which means "to rage, be frantic", or the adjectival derivative of that, Μάργος (Margos), which means "mad, frantic, silly, foolish". Add the "-ite" ending on it, which seems to be a standard "people" ending (Israelites, Caananites, etc.), and we have "Mad People" - i.e. people who were mad/frantic in their worship of a outcast god. At any rate, I'm putting it in, so if anyone disagrees, please of course delete it.
- Its more likely that the name is based on the real life religious group with a nearly identical name: Maronite -- Kirbman 08:11, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
Do they actually count as demons, thus triggering the +10AR vs Demons on shields or not?Bright Star Shine 20:07, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
