ghost messenger of episode 5 S4 (spoilers)

Did anyone notice that when we get to the forge and a ghost messenger apears to tell us that Kralkatorrik is in the domain of the lost, that the messenger looks like Gwen?

  • Yes. Same model, though new effects, as the Ancient Ghost in Hall of Chains which iirc was confirmed as Gwen.

    Can you tell if the VA is the same as before? There was too much reverb for me to make out the voice well.

  • I don't really recall Gwen's voice from GW1 tbh. Something to ask in the next AFC.

    Gwen's VA in Guild Wars 1 was Kari Wahlgren, the same person who voices Caithe... so I would assume it is the same VA

    I recall much grumpiness!

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    The ghostly messenger's voice was deffo Kari Wahlgren in this episode, so I assume it is supposed to be Gwen.

    I'll take @Svennis.3852 at their word for VA, but I wouldn't trust "the VA is still around so it must be them". Remember Hablion, who I'm pretty sure was not voiced by our soft furred charr.

    I'm judging based on the sound of her voice; Wahlgren's sound is pretty iconic and I've played a few games with her voicing major characters. I guess that doesn't guarantee it's truly Gwen, but if the devs weren't intending it to be her, not sure why they would use her very iconic model for such a thing.

    Not sure how absolute one may consider the wiki, but her page explicitly states it was her delivering the message: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gwen_Thackeray

    Yes, it was me adding that. Because, like you say, very iconic appearance.

    Someone could always ask in the AFC.
