Ancients who became flesh did not battle, it would be foolish from them to
do so since they had too much to lose (Like their physical form). New Gods
(= ancients who remained in heavens) were those who battled. What comes
to the intelligent of the Ancients and New Gods, it is obvious that at least the
ancients were intelligent for they built those great cities before God wars.
Sages are ancients who decided to watch after new races.

Of course some of the Ancients probably died in battle, but others left
for some reason or another.

to make things more clear:

- The Ancients = God like spirits who became flesh (power = lesser God)
                           both before and after battle since they didn't get power
                           from other spirits.
- New Gods    = God like spirits who started a battle between them and
                          the Elder Gods, they also remained in heavens and kept
                          growing in power (power = lesser God - God.
- Ancients/Ancient beings  = New Gods, the Ancients, the Elder Gods,
                          ancient creatures (dragons).
