Guild Wars Countdown, Week 4: 7 Amazing Songs
7. Sands of Kryta
My Guild Wars Countdown is back this week, this time featuring 7 of my favorite songs in Guild Wars. I wish you could see all the notes on my desk right now and rough drafts of pieces I’ve written on various songs that didn’t make the cut. I’m having a nerd crisis because there are honestly too many amazing songs in the Guild Wars soundtracks that picking 7 to feature is very difficult for me. Jeremy Soule is such an amazing composer and I think everyone can agree that the soundtrack to Guild Wars is fantastic.
For song 7 however, I’ve decided to talk about Sands of Kryta. I remember hearing this song for the first time when arriving in Kryta and it fit perfectly with the golden sands and crashing waves under a clear blue sky, which was such a welcome sight after trekking through Browny McBrown Brown Ascalon and the stark Shiverpeaks
I wrote a bunch of stuff about my feelings about what this song represents to our characters but then read this YouTube comment that summed it up far more elegantly
When I heard hints of GW1 music while playing in the beta weekends it made me all misty eyed. It’s amazing how a simple song can bring back such fond memories of me and my friends playing the game. I always wished I could vacation in Kryta. With the beauitful white sands and crystal blue water. It’s so calm and relaxing. By far one of my favorite areas in all of Guild Wars.
