    The quori invade xen'drik through a gate that connects Eberron to Dal Quor, the plane of Dreams. after years of battle , the giants call upon the magic of the dragons to destroy the planer gate . This act results in a cataclysm that shakes Xen' drick to its core and plunges large chunks of the continent beneath the sea. The physical connecection to dal quor is severed perhaps forever

    Cause Chuck Norris told em to.
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    Keep in mind folks, that the question isn't "what" happened, but "why". I see several interesting interpretations of the events, but not a lot of insight into the motivation.

    Scratching an itch is one thing... but interdimensional wars don't happen often.

    As in all wars, there are two stories to be dug up here.

    Flimsyfirewood asks: "Why do you think the Giants and Quori fought thousands of years ago?"

    The Quori shift their nature to fit the era in which they exist. They are a Ying-Yang to the world and were at that time neutral (or good) to balance the continuing imbalance of power amongst the Giants that became corrupt. When the Dragons of Argonnessen chose to share their magicks with the Giants the balance shift became too great and forced a War in which the Giants attempted to overtake Dal Quor and destroy the Quori (with much success). Later on the elves of Aerneal lashed back at the great destruction of the Spirit Realm -- with which all Sylvan creatures hold an intimate connection. At this time the Dragons came to the Truth that the Giants would destroy the world if they could not rule it, and thus came the Great War of Xen'drik. This resulted in the final fall of the Giants and a shift in the balance of Good -- thus ushering the next age of the Dal Quor -- an evil and maligned spirit realm of Quori.

    You all can thank Argonnessen later. Argo saved your Khyber and Siberyian butts.

    PS: A direct WHY is the Dal Quor are a balance to the World of Eberron -- they exist between the Dragon Above and the Dragon Below -- in a spirit world that protects Eberron from itself. They are the Balance.

    Could the "why" be that they had no wish to be destroyed? The Dal Quor with the quori are subject to a cycles of implosions and renewals. They wanted to prevent that. They invaded Eberron in the hope to establish a place on the Material Plane in order to conquer it. The giants with the help of Dragon magic managed to repel that invasion at the cost of loosing their civilization and dominance in Eberron. The powerful magics used in the war displaced Dal Quor from it's orbit which caused it to be permanetly severed from Eberron.

    This brought about the factioning of the Quori into the Kalashtars and the Inspired. One wants Eberron and Dal Quor to be coterminous again, the other is trying to stop it.

    One day a giant was walking down the street eating his chocolate... a Quori spider was walking down another eating his peanut butter. They bumped into each other at the corner and the giant squished the spider under his foot...and kept going.

    40,000 years prior to the end of the Last War, the quori of that age invaded Eberron in an attempt to prevent the dawning of a new age but were repelled by the giants of Xen'drik, who managed to sever all connections between Eberron and Dal Quor using immensely powerful magic.

    Im guessing that like most beings they dont want to change(or die) but keep things the way they are.

    - Over Pie. It's the only logical answer.
    Devs: Thanks for making Druids available to VIPs without the pack. This more than anything, has made me want to buy the pack.

    Flimsyfirewood asks: "Why do you think the Giants and Quori fought thousands of years ago?"

    The "Titan" Giants of old Xen'drik had the ability to manipulate the orbit of the planes. I think the invasion of the Dal Quor came about because of this manipulation. I think the Titans did not fully comprehend what they were doing and during one of their manipulations, they may have altered the natural evolution of light and dark cycles of Dal Quor also resulting in opening a gateway between Eberron and Dal Quor. The residents of Dal Quor may have invaded to try and stop the Titans. I think this is also the reason why the dragons of Argonnesan may have had a falling out with the Titans because the dragons did not think it was wise to manipulate the orbital planes.

    In their attempt to understand the nature of the plane of existense which they inhabitied the Quori experimented with interdimensional travel. The experiment went awry, and forced a coplanar merge within the giant hold. In an attempt to separate the plains, it was deemed to be necessary to destroy the giant hold, in order to severe the dimensional anchor. The giant not wishing to be destroyed, began their own experiemnts to devise a way to destroy the Quori, the vast magiks required allianceses with the formidable powers of the windslashers the dragons and other groups from across eberaon. The Quori science combinded with the Magiks and devastated the land.
