|End of Dragons is the third expansion for Guild Wars 2, and one that presented a special challenge: how to revisit a fan favorite area from earlier iterations of the game while re-imagining it with more respect and sensitivity. Taking inspiration from Korean history and culture, the soundtrack needed to weave Korea's unique musical traditions with the familiar sounds of the Guild Wars franchise. This talk will go through the process of educating oneself as an outsider, early missteps, incorporating Korean voices into the team, and ultimately shining a light on a form of music that is sorely underrepresented in Western media.
