Ever wonder why WildStar’s floppy-eared Aurin are galaxy-hopping instead of staying at home and gnawing on carrots? It’s because of an event called the Ravaging of Arboria, and you can learn more about it by reading a new story update (which includes pictures for those who have a hard time with words).
Heck, you might even feel bad for the nature-loving race after finding out that their home was targeted by the Dominion to be churned up into fuel and other resources. However, both sides appeared to be wounded in the event, which is significant to setting the stage of what happens on Nexus in the game.[Source: Lore post]
