Why are blue/blue traitstones "Stoic?"


#1

I understand the reasoning behind most of the arcane traitstone names, with the exception of the blue/blue one. Why “Stoic?” Does it have something to do with Knights? Giants?

I would have gone with “Arcane Ocean Traitstone,” personally.


#2

If I had to explain the meaning of “stoic” in one word, it would probably be “calm”. I can definitely picture a quiet sea having the title “stoic”.

Not sure what’s your take on that word though. Why do you think it should have to do with knights or giants?


#3

Just because both troop types use blue as a dominant color. Water is certainly a more straightforward interpretation.


#4

this is the definition of stoic from the dictionary i have: a person who can endure pain or hardship without showing their feelings or complaining.
So those with the trait stone might have that kind of personality. Also i can not beleive i had to look up a word in my dictionary AGAIN because of this forum. Those that have the trait stone have to do with the word stoic.


#5

blue / blue = Stormheim = ice = viking villages = ruled by Stoick (How to Train a Dragon).
That’s how I like to see it :stuck_out_tongue:

Illuminati confirmed.

Opposite of Arcane Rage stones (Red/Red) perhaps?
