    Its a fantasy game. So what if a race looks ugly to you, you will find things you think are ugly and other people love in every single place you go, and in every single activity you do.

    You can just not be an asura and that's it.

    personally im a fan of games that use races less human looking. i dont really care for asura, but it certainly doesnt bother me

    The Asura can look great they just need the right facial slider options.

    There are definitely more hideously ugly face preset options compared to cute/decent looking () especially for males, but there's a lot of variety with the 'cute' options.

    Anyway in game they look great (best animations of all the races) and considering the camera is rarely zoomed in close to the models face on (unless you're playing an Asura and do it on purpose) they fit it perfectly well.

    You should have stayed back as the plaque told you. It's obvious you caught the stupidity and love the Asura now. Bookah.

    I would like some more chin options on the male Asura, otherwise I really like them. Their movement and animations are superb.
    However their attitude to life and the world is what really makes me like them. Look up Guild Wars 2 Lore Blogs: Snarky Little Geniuses on youtube for example to get some backstory and so. Then tell me if you dont like them

    Don't play then, problem fixed. They're not removing the race because 1 player doesn't like them.

    This thread is utterly useless.

    Oh I know what Asura remind me of...
    Dobby/Elves from Harry Potter, but with better posture/nicer skin and just as powerful. Seriously, elves in HP were OP as heck.


    I'ma play an Asura too. They're so kewl.

    Asura as you said are kind of ugly little things, doesnt make me proud to gear one up.

    Sylvari I actually quite like, a few of the combos look fugly but the plant / human hybrid is nice.

    Norn / Human They are more or less the exact same, cept norn's are more bulky and dont really live upto their shapeshifter name.

    Ill probably end up playing Sylvari or Humans tbh.

    Thats not to say I dont like the game, its amazing, just the races leave a bit to be desired in my opinion.
    I hear ya. I am less than impressed with GW2 races. Asuras I find just ugly and unappealing, Norns and Humans have basically no visual difference aside from size, Charr are too bulky to be attractive. Sylvari, for all their "uniqueness" are just reskinned humans. (inb4 the "lore explains it" comments). I wish the designers and artists would take some risks and go away from the cliche "not-human but humanoid" styles and actually designed non-humanoid races.

    O_o

    Charr seem very non-humanoid to me. Sure, they've got two legs, two arms, and a head, but that's not all they have.

    I also don't see the Sylvari as reskinned humans. Unless humans have leaves for hair... and ears... and eyebrows...
    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.

    Subjective opinion is subjective. I don't see them as all that ugly.
