High Priest Varloo gives his opinion on the Hub's abandonment:

"As history has shown, the Hub cannot be held.

Everytime we try, we inevitably lose it within months. The recent loss at the hands of the Empire was further proof of that: Narko shook the world and made two entire sections of the southern wall collapse. And, no later than this week, wraiths have appeared and taken one of our holy brothers.

As long as Narko's darkness covers the place, we cannot hold it. For too long have we fought with the false enemy! We must redirect our attention to the Dark Demoness' first minions, only by destroying the dark ones can we weaken her influence."
