* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/TroyBaker is Logan Thackeray.
** Creator/SteveBlum is Rytlock Brimstone.
** Creator/KariWahlgren is Caithe.
** Creator/FeliciaDay is Zojja.
** Creator/JenniferHale is Queen Jennah and the female Sylvari.
** Some of the Sylvari [=NPC=]s are voiced by Creator/LiamOBrien.
** Claudia Christian ([[Series/{{Babylon5}} Ivanova]], as well as several [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Nords]]) is the female Norn.
** Keythe Farley ([[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Thane Krios]]) is Beigarth.
** Creator/SumaleeMontano is Janis.
** GideonEmery is Valiant Estiene, Fraxx, Gareth, and Renvari.
** Creator/PaulEiding is Forgal Kernsson.
** Creator/ArielWinter is Cassie.
** Creator/MatthewMercer is the male Norn player character, [[BadassBaritone un]][[LargeHam suprisingly]].
** Creator/NolanNorth is the male Human player character. A few of his quips are a little narmtastic, but they fit his voice-job. He's also Mordremoth.
** The male Asuran playable character is Creator/SteveStaley, best well known for his role as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Neji Hyuga]]. Considering that the Asurans are [[SmallNameBigEgo well-known to be very short with large egotistical and hammy personalities]], [[PigeonholedVoiceActor it's no surprise this casting fits him very well]].
** Creator/TaraStrong provided the voice for Scarlet Briar during the Clockwork Chaos Living Story event. [[WomanOfAThousandVoices Among her vast repertoire]], she also did the voice of Harley Quinn in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', another [[AxCrazy murderous]] but [[EvilGenius intelligent]] psychopath.
** Debi Derryberry voices both Taimi and Belinda Delaqua. She uses the same voice as she did with WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron for the former.
** Creator/NeilKaplan (Tychus Findlay of ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'') provides voices for supporting Charr [=NPCs=], in a very gravelly, Tychus-esque tone.
** Creator/CrispinFreeman also provides voices for supporting human, Norn, and Sylvari [=NPCs=]. It can be a little disconcerting to hear a slightly-deeper [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Togusa]] boasting at a moot.
** Creator/SamRiegel provides lines for many supporting [=NPCs=] of various flavours, including a distressed fishmonger who's having trouble selling his (contaminated) fish in Kessex Hills.

* DummiedOut: There was originally going to be a Canthan (Based off the Asian continent of the original game) district in the human capital of Divinity's Reach, but due to ExecutiveMeddling (the Asian market disapproved of multiple Asian cultures being lumped together as one), the whole district was turned into The Great Collapse, which has been rebuilt into the Crown Pavilion.

** Creator/NeilKaplan (Tychus Findlay of ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'') provides voices for supporting charr [=NPCs=], in a very gravelly, Tychus-esque tone.

** In regards to the Queen's Jubliee Living Story event, many speculate that someone will attempt to assassinate Queen Jennah, but PlotArmor demands her to be alive. This is especially true when during the Clockwork Chaos Living Story content where [[spoiler:Scarlet Briar, who led a group of Aetherblades attacking the Opening Ceremony, shot a rocket towards Queen Jennah during the Closing Ceremony. Luckily, Queen Jennah survived thanks to the fact that she created an illusion. [[ButtMonkey Lord Faren]], however, wasn't that lucky (although he does survive the fall).]]
** Many people had already come up with the theory on their own, the season finale of Living World Season 2 confirmed that [[spoiler:sylvari are indeed minions of Mordremoth, which may be why they were immune to other dragons' corruption]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the earlier stages of development, the Sylvari's [[PlantPeople vegetative nature]] was downplayed, to the point where they looked more like [[http://huntersinsight.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/sylvari-03.jpg traditional elves]]. Caithe (pictured, front row, first from the right) in particular had a much different design.

* GeniusBonus: During ''Heart of Thorns''' fight against [[spoiler:Mordremoth, each of the four illusions he sends against you supplies him with a unique buff which you then take for yourself. The buffs are named Occipital Mastery, Temporal Mastery, Parietal Mastery, and Frontal Mastery - after the four lobes of the brain. Fitting, given how Mordremoth's domain includes Mind...]]
