Why was Salma's skin tone changed in guild wars beyond?, and krytans in guild wars 2

Before that, krytans had a mostly uniform tanned-brown color. (Hablion, Dorian, Magi Malaquire) Now they are like ascalonians or orrians. (Although the mantle savants were of a lighter skin, and the shining blade displayed a variety of skin color too.)

    Could be my eyes that deceived me though, they look pretty similar both the standard krytan female model, and Salma, when looking at wiki pictures.

    Hey started dusting off my guild wars 1 account and the Krytans, had this really cool South American/Mayan/Caribbean vibe to them in the first game I really enjoyed the whole Krytan theme why does everyone look like Ascolonians now save for the queen? I get that Kryta became a melting pot, but its just so different.

  • Was wondering that myself. Perhaps a lot of ascalonian refugees intermaried with the local population. Not mean to sound insesnitive but the former krytans had way darker skin and their clothing was also different.

    Well, it's also been roughly 250 years. A lot can happen in that time period. Kryta is a melting pot, especially since a good number of Ascalonian refugees came to Kryta, both during the initial exodus and in the eighteen years between then and the Foefire.
