    Norn are so uninspired, personality-wise. I dunno, I had my fill of "GLORIUS" from Kormac, I don't need another any time soon. Seriously, take away the drunken-buffoonery, and you're still left with buffoonery disguised as "honor" and nowhere else left to go.

    I like the Humans here, I like the Asura, LOVE the Charr, and am going to completely embrace Sylvari. But Norn don't really do much for me at all.

    Will their ever be an mmo w/out humans?
    No - there will never be an mmo without humans - a lot of people would feel utterly alienated by the lack of humans - bland and dull as they are.

    Don't like charr :s

    Humans, they are just puny Norn with no sense of glory.


    I actually voted for Azura, mostly because it isn't spelled correctly but also because they have weird looking feet.

    And our feet are just lovely, thank you very much! :P

    No matter where we go, we could always find more like that.

    Fully agree with this. I personally enjoy every single race in the game. They all have unique flavors, and they all have unique flaws that I despise. (I still think the Norn are too cliche)

    If I had to vote one as being my least favorite, I'd definitely say Asura, but I don't have any particular dislike for them. I just like the others more. I certainly do have a great love for their personality, as it can be fun, but their personality is also part of why I like the other races better. Narcissism gets a little old after a while.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    I have to go with the lazer midgets. The plant and cat people are almost as bad, but they don't have crazy tech that is just so out of place.

    Asura. Never really liked small cutsey races. Give me the boring old Human everytime.
    This is the tale not of the Horde as it exists today, a loose organization of orc,tauren,forsaken,troll, and blood elf, but of the rise of the very first Horde. Its birth, like that of any infant, was marked by blood and pain, and its harsh cries for life meant death to its enemies.

    They're not always dull. Let's not pretend as if many non-human races don't end up just being humans in a monstrous husk. Charr are very industrial and technologically advanced as well as heavily influenced by the Roman military. All of which are traits quite easily associated with humans in the real world. The same can be said of Norn, who are very heavily influenced by Nordic culture and stereotypes. As much as I enjoy playing exotic races, very few are actually all that inspiring and unique - most tend to just be based on a mix of various aspects of past and present human cultures.

    They're anything but cutesy. You need to do some research here!

    Flummox is pretty much your standard Asura personality. Harsh of tongue, extremely condescending, and quite shrewd.

    “Flummox, are you awake?” said Sareb.

    “Do I look awake?” said the asura, popping open one eye.

    The male sylvari watched the artificer sternly, as if suspecting a trap. At last he nodded. “Yes.”

    “Then I must be awake.” Flummox let out a deep, frustrated sigh. “Why aren’t we moving?”

    “There’s a problem.”

    “The wagon is not moving, it is cold outside, and you’ve awoken me from my nap,” said Flummox, propping himself up on his elbows, one eye still closed in desperate hope. “I can guess there is some form of problem. Now tell me, my young sylvari, what is the problem?”



    Basically, try to imagine that the entire race is based off Tyrion Lannister.

    Crazy tech being out of place? Well there are plenty of muskets and magic all about, I suggest you look up the term "steampunk".

    Agreed! I'm fine with the other races, but the Asura .. I doubt I'll roll one at all.

    That's tough. If I had to choose one, however, it'd probably be the norn/humans. Not that I dislike either of them.

    In lore: Sylvari
    In appearance: Charr

    Norn. Although not as bland as Humans, they just seem.. Uninteresting in every aspect to me.

    Definitely glad I'm not the only one.
