    1 Make or Break Question For Guild Wars 2

    This is make or break if I try out the game or not when its released, or try the beta if i get an invite.....It's the same thing that was make or break for Skyrim for me....


    Can you be a dwarf?

    >> You might be able to be a short... human... or maybe a tall asura... But no, no dwarves. At least not yet.

    I'm pretty sure dwarfs are extinct in GW2. :P

    My husband goes "tell him to grow up .. hehe get it?"

    What a nerd.


    Oh, you can be norn which are cool big viking-like people.

    All the Dwarfs in GW2 lore are turned to stone and you can not play them.

    That's an odd make or break question >_>... (I feel sorry for you not playing Skyrim over that as well... to each his own I guess.)

    I love playing dwarves, I guess I can deal with elves...

    Are there elves?

    EDIT:

    Checked the race list, maybe I can be a short fat Norn and look like Dwarf?

    Not sure if you are serious (I doubt it) but no there aren't - how about you read some of the other threads before asking obvious questions.

    No elves. There are Sylvari, Charr, Human, Asura and Norn.

    Sadly no not really, there are Sylvari there like plant people, bit elvish though.

    Sylvari are the closest race you will get into this game that might make you think of elves.

    I wouldn't say there are elves, but there are these things called Sylvari. They look like elves, only... They're made of plant material. Just look up Sylvari on google images.

    You can make a very small, fat chubby Norn and call it a Dwarf, but if you expect it to look like a small human, it won't. It will just look like a really weird human viking mess.

    Let me ask you a question, OP.

    If you got into the beta for what is undoubtedly the most anticipated MMO in history- do you mean to say you would not bother due to lack of dwarfs?

    Guild Wars 2 is all about "being not like any other MMO". Not even the class mechanics, game mechanics, but rases as well makes HUGE difference from any other game. I'm truly tired of elves, and to my mind Sylvari are so much better:

    You did not just ask that... I think if he said no everyone on this side of the forums would stone him and quarter him to death.

    Sylvari don't look like elves (their old version kinda did).

    They look like an asian salad.

    Maybe not, because then he could give out his beta key to one of us

    Very optimistic of you isn't it? Darn you NDA DARN YOU.

    Also, asian salads are delish.

    OT:They still remind me of Wood Elves or something.

    It would appear when it comes to accepting racial differences in in medieval fantasy games, the OP falls short.

    The dwarves are all dead. Good thing for us, since they were extremely xenophobic and wanted to rule the world.
