/u/Plagiarised on reddit has been doing a weekly feature about hard to find lore tidbits hidden in the game.

I'll post them here each week, since not everyone visits /r/guildwars2 religiously like me :P

There was once a golem uprising.
Did you know?
In 1284 A.E. an event occurred, now known as the Great Golem Uprising. During this event, all the golems in Rata Sum became defective.[1] It is somewhat suggested that Snaff lost control of the golems and caused the uprising, however this cannot be proven for now.[2] This has caused much anxiety in many citizens, including some Peacemakers who fear of a second uprising. This event caused the asura to put the sedition inhibitor in all golems.[3]

Sources
    • Retired Researcher: You remember the great golem uprising of ’84?
    • Retired Researcher (2): How could I forget! I spent two days hanging by my ears from a sign post.
    • Retired Researcher: You should have known better than to ask for directions. They hate that.
    • Peacemaker Officer: The Peacemaker golems certainly are functioning well these days.
    • Peacemaker Officer (2): Not too may hiccups. Remember when Snaff lost control of them? What a mess.
    • Peacemaker Officer: Don’t let Zojja hear you say that. As far as she’s concerned, Snaff could do no wrong.
    • Peacemaker Officer: So, what should we do in the case of a golem uprising?
    • Peacemaker Officer (2): Impossible. The sedition inhibitor prevents any insurgent behaviour.
    • Peacemaker Officer: And if someone determined a way to suppress the inhibitor?
    • Peacemaker Officer: Well, then we die or we bow down to our new golem overlords.

There is a myth of a three-tailed devourer.
Did you know?
Most devourers have two tails, but there are some myths of a three-tailed devourer.[1] It is said that the three-tailed devourer is an image straight out of a nightmare.[2] Others believe it is simply fiction.

Sources
  1. Helf Stonebrow: My deals are legendary! Poets through the ages will write of the bargains you received this day! Even the cheapest of my swords could split the mythical three-tailed devourer in half!
  2. Book Carts: On top of the pile lies "The Three-Tailed Devourer: Nature's Cruelest Creation." A bookmarked page shows an image ripped straight out of a nightmare. Hopefully this is a piece of fiction.

The Priory’s tomes and books are distributed through printing presses.
Did you know?
The printing presses are used wide scale to print books and tomes for the Black Citadel. The charr then sold a few of the presses to the Durmand Priory. The Priory uses the printing presses for mass distribution of books mainly throughout Kryta, but they can also be found elsewhere. The charr also sold some presses to independent groups after they saw the profit that can be gained. Not all presses come for the charr however; some presses were able to utilize old wine presses for their manufacturing.[1]

Sources
    • Chikage: There are so many books to read. I wish I had time for them all. The Durmand Priory's been busy since getting their hands on printing presses.
    • Player: All these books came from Durmand Priory?
    • Chikage: Not all of them. There are few independent presses around. Since the charr sold a few presses to the Priory, some other groups figured they could profit from it as well.
    • Player: I'm surprised the charr were so willing to sell the Durmand Priory all those presses.
    • Chikage: Oh they didn't all come from the charr. Although I believe a few of the independent presses might be made from old unused wine presses.
    • Player: Wow, clever. Well it's been nice talking to you. Bye!
