    Norn males are girly-men?

    I'm just wondering if this is something to expect as far as a Norn Warrior (and maybe Guardian) have to deal with on an aesthetic level.



    I'm talking about the legs and how they seem to be...much smaller than the rest of the body. I used one of the preset physical builds so I didn't tamper with any features and it seemed fine from the character creation screen but this is just a little weird. I can't even imagine how he can support his own body let alone the layers of chainmail thrown on top.

    Is this something I can expect to 'go away' when I have access to better gear or will I be hearing Arnold Schwarzenegger in my head the whole time?

    Don't compare him to a human and it'll stop being a problem. He's norn so his proportions will look off.


    Now, if you take a human female and compare with a real human... that's where I have a problem XD

    Um, yeah I did read your post. And yeah, Norn aren't men. Different race and all of that.

    Sorry, I guess using a movie quote isn't the best method to ask a question or thought it would create such an uproar.

    I don't think his legs are that small, the shoulders and gloves make the upper body look bigger than it actually is; but the skinniest body option for the Norn is probably the worst proportion wise, but not by much.

    You need to pick a better body build. =\
    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.

    Even if the Norns legs look small compared to their body, which mine didn't at all because its all about how you customized them, their one leg is about half the width of a Human or Sylvari and total width of an Asura. They're very big in game.

    If I could take off a glove and slap the OP with it, I would. How dare you mock the Norn! :P

    No one created a uproar, they stated or said a few things and went on the defensive. But yes, not all their legs are like that and Norm's are not just 'big humans' though, their proportions are not exactly on scale with humans with an exact ratio either.
