Now we've said our least favourite, what is your favourite sound in the game?

I'm guessing no one will say knowledge tome spamming.

For me it's easily the screaming sound of a male Asura being burned alive. It never fails to make me laugh.

    The sound when you unlock a new skin.
    And the sound of BLC being opened :3
    Fractal speed kills, raids, Black Lion Chest Openings, random.

  • The soundtrack. ^^
    The background dialogs
    And really, really rarely, when my Asura main gets downed and mutters, "I'm still smarter than you."

    Let's see.

    1. The soundtrack and ambience in general
    2. I open BLC when looking elsewhere, so whenever I hear 5 items discovered instead of 4, I feel an excited jolt in my stomach
    3. People dying to Bolt legendary, so satisfying. Zapping people to death is the best.
    4. Speaking of which, the lovely "zap" from lightning strike
    5. The random critters making noises in Orr
    6. "Death. Good."
    7. Male charr PC's excited "WAHOO!"
    8. On that note, most of the male charr sounds in general
    9. Jackal footsteps ♥
    10. Unlocking skins and completing achievements
    12. Most charr NPC voices, their grunts and other sounds
    13. Chronomancer wells
    14. "I'm neither here nor there!" (charr male)
    15. "Death comes on swift wings" (charr male)
    16. "Breathe deeply" (charr male)
    17. The pew pew sounds from HOPE
    18. Pop gun
    19. Deadeye rifle
    20. Holosmith's Photon Forge skills
    21. "Hot! Hot hot!" (charr male)
    22. "You'll not harm me!" (charr male)
    23. The ambience of Reaper's Shroud
    24. Barrier ticking down
    25. "I'm ready! Are you?" (charr male)

    I can come up with more but let's stop here for now.

    i Think I like the guardian sound when shield 5 is activated

    • unsheet Astralaria. Reminds me a little bit of gears of war
    • that Champion Krait Witch. i farm my krait key in Nonmoa Lake. and i love when she is there an scream over the map.
      Where sky meets sea, I summon maelstroms to destroy our enemies. Sulfur and salt, I cast offerings to the currents. Crush them. Make them suffer!

    • activate Firebrand Mantras

    • most female Asura voice lines

    He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster

  • "I recommend you run!" by female sylvari. Any combat shout by female sylvary, actually. Best voice acting in the game, hands down.

    Either the Crystal Oasis theme, or the Ashford Abbey theme.

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.

    ..jormag? Who's that?

  • I'm sure this would get thumbs-downed if we still had thumbs-down, but I really like the sounds that chak make.

  • The music that comes from the folks who use the harp properly. Other then that, the music that plays for some areas. I can't think of those areas atm, so imma go with the harp as a stand in.

  • Krypto.2069Krypto.2069 Member ✭✭✭

    I L:heart:VE the "cluck... cluck" sounds that the chickens of Tyria make. I'll often stop and listen to them when I run across one in my travels. LOL!
    And I'm no means a "mini" person, but I got the Chickenado mini just to listen to (and watch) it occasionally. :sweat_smile:

    Ok, some of my WvW brothers and sisters are gonna hate on me for this but...
    I love the WarClaw's Battle Maul "pounce" sound! Especially when 4 or more of us POUNCE on some dude in downed state!!! ROAR, ROAR, ROAR!!! We're just a PACK of WILD BEASTS! :lol:

    Same as Neural :)
    Oh, and the orrian npc expressions (Now I'll never...) and dying centaurs, especially at Ulgoth event.

    Edit: how could i forget my favourite jack-in-the-box gathering sickle? Love it.

    Clearly, the Chickenado mini is the only one worth having.

    Not sure if these qualify as "sounds" - more like voices:
    Taimi's/Belinda's voice (Debi Derryberry).
    Iowerth's/Laranthir's voice (Crispin Freeman).
    My Sylvari girls'/Queen Jennah's voice (Jennifer Hale).

    I also like the sound the water effect makes when I use my Consortium Harvesting Sickle.

  • Poormany.4507Poormany.4507 Member ✭✭✭

    Whenever Trahearne says "Clawr Island" it always cracks me up for some reason

  • Gop.8713Gop.8713 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I used engis for my keyrunners for a couple of months recently and I really liked the sound it makes when you unlock their elite skills or the last skill in any of their specialization tracks . . .

  • Human male warrior shouting "you can't stop me!" or "I'll destroy you all!" when activating berserk.
    Norn male when entering combat "let's do this."
    Asura male when entering combat "And now... to destroy you."

    Quotes like these make the characters feel more kitten ^^

    "Never let a wrong ripen into evil."

  • In verdant brink there is this piece of music that comes on whenever I'm in the southwest corner. It's like goof fail music and it always makes me laugh. One time I got stuck in a vine around there and kept trying to hop out, the music came on and I burst out laughing.

  • I like the sound my Reaper's greatsword makes when using skill #3 Death Spiral. It has a satisfying sound that goes well with the skill and animation.

  • HazyDaisy.4107HazyDaisy.4107 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I think it happens on Charr Rangers when activating the elite signet, but it sounds like they're bearing down getting ready to...pass something. Anyway, I find it humorous.

    Anything from Super Adventure Box.

    Yes, I know. I'm tacky.

  • Favourite sound effects: The buzzing noise the jacaranda makes (yes, really), ambient sounds in Orr, Sand Shade sounds in general.
    Favourite dialogue: "Now they'll feel my turbulence!" (Male asura Elementalist attuning to Air.)
    Favourite music tracks: Resplendent Makuun, Dark Woods 2, and the one from Tangled Depths with the bass clarinet.

    Same here! The first time I heard it, I went 'what the hell is making that awful sound?' But having the Jacaranda as my main pet, it's really grown on me. I think it's hilarious.

    I really love the sound of the Mesmer's portal as it sits there. Such a pretty, satisfying sound. I also love the sound of Chaos Storm. Most of the Mesmer ability sound effects are great, really. I also love the sound of base Necromancer's shroud 1 skill landing.

    "More than enough!" said by male sylvari when using Soulbeast skill Worldly Impact is great. Also when one of your pets get knocked out and he says in such a worried tone, 'I'm here! I'll bring you back!' I just love most things the male sylvari say tbh. Female sylvari also have a fantastic VA but I'm just particularly fond of the male VA.

    Lastly, said by female Asura:
    'You're dumb. You'll die, and you'll leave a dumb corpse.'

  • Donari.5237Donari.5237 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I do enjoy a lot of the sounds, they are a huge part of the ambiance of the game. But the only one that's made me stop just to savor it is Scout Acan's lute playing so I'll select that one.

    (Honorable runner up, the chak wurble, because I saw the video about how that sound is made and now I laugh happily every time I hear it).

  • Ooh one more I forgot about: the cute little song the Foostivoo The Merry mini sings. I've had guildmates say it's creepy but I think it's adorable. da-da-dadada-da-dadada-da-da-daaaa : D

    I usually play on mute and have other music in the background.
    But I do really enjoy the Deadeye running around with The Predator.

    Now I'm waiting for a pistol with "Pew Pew Pew."

    The deep, gutteral sounds male Charr makes when mining and some battle skills.

  • HnRkLnXqZ.1870HnRkLnXqZ.1870 Member ✭✭✭

    Real sounds:
    Engineer FT Skill 5 Smoke Vent
    Thief Utility Caltrops
    Leap of Faith of Guardian Greatsword
    Opening sound of the Shining Blade Glider

    NPC dialogue:
    Frizz from the Aetherblade Fractal: "Fry, you pests. Fry like a skritt on a lightning rod."
    Aerin from Gates of Maguuma (LS 2), Cornered: "Unhappy times. Unhappy."
    Councilor Mayameen from Long live the Lich (LS 4), Seized: "Mr. Gorrik"

  • Pterikdactyl.7630Pterikdactyl.7630 Member ✭✭✭✭
