All the races look interesting to me, barring the Asura, but the Sylvari choice was what drew me to GW2. My reasoning may be somewhat... strange:
1. Greenpeace Crolis from the anime Dominion Tank Police is a character which has always interested me, even if she was barely used in D:TP.
2. Pacifica from the manga Pixy Junket. The idea of a creature birthed in the roots of the world and being a living, sentient part of it.
3. The apparent gender antipathy of a plant people (although yes, I know that there are duosexual plants out there) is a theme I deal with in my own life and I find comfort in nonsexual/ambiguous characterisation.
Still haven't decided on which of my characters will be my "main" as I'm switching between them as I like.
So far I got:
- 1 Asura (Engineer)
- 2 Sylvari (Guardian, Ranger)
- 1 Human (Mesmer)
- 1 Norn (Thief)
but I guess I will complete the professions with an Asura Warrior, and Human/Norn Elementalist/Necromancer.
Prophecies and Eye of the North did a GREAT job to really make me dislike (if not hate) the Charr...
Well after a month of concideration and lots of deleted characters, boring humans seem to be where I'm staying most, although Sylvari do come in a close second. I've tried several Charr and while I want to love one I just don't seem able to at the moment, maybe later.
Helooo.... New here by the way.. I would like to go to human race but maybe i would like to try something else than the human race...
This is video game after all... One of the best MMORPG.... Make my fantasy become a reality...
