Yes, the Tome of Destiny aka the movie you sit through when EQ2 first launches, and it was published on the first EQ2 website. What exactly is your point here? If the combine defended the Nexus we'll never know. Why? Because teleportation stopped at the same time that the attack occurred. The last person to teleport from the Nexus related the story of the attack and was suppose to gather adventurers to mount a counter attack but the entire Combine Spire Network was shut down. The most logical conclusion is that the forces of Ro and Zek placed the crystal in the Nexus to stop teleportation from working, but that is at best a theory. One that I will contend is a much stronger theory than the Loyalists or Seru forces trying to take on the army that two gods sent to the Nexus. Both of those combine armies wouldn't move because of the threat that they could be ambushed by the other side. Also while the gods may think and act in long term goals and plans, time is relevant to them. The most relevant part is that they weren't around during the period that Luclin blew up. Maybe it was a 400 year old plot to destroy another god's realm but considering how much trouble each god has surviving those 500 years in exile I somehow don't think they had a direct hand in this. Considering how strong of an event the Shattering was and how much it is involved in the End of Ages prophecy I think we'll eventually get more lore on the subject. By the time the Greenmist went in and killed off all of the Ogres except the ones in Freeport (and apparently a few Cazic converts in the Moors) Cazic had already withdrawn with the rest of the gods. The entire 2nd Rallosian Empire happened after the gods withdrew and was carried out by the mortal avatars they left behind. Cazic just happened to have the most powerful one. Luclin's nature is to conceal everything. She doesn't take the counsel of other gods. And because of that nature it isn't surprising that some of the other gods decided to act directly against her to make sure their plans weren't thwarted. If you read the entire sentence I believe that should of been clear.
