    Anyway yeah, I did manage to log on within the first 30 seconds of launch (literally) and grabbed whichever names I was after. Shame only 5 characters are allowed, but you won't believe how fast the 3-letter names went within the first MINUTE of launch. I got Yay, didn't really try Joy. Not really gonna complain since I got the ones I was after, I'm sure there were people with a whole list of names they started spamming at launch.

    Urgh, reminds me of getting an original name in Runescape back in 2006. Reached a stage where having a short/original name went hand-in-hand with having a super high-level with countless hours gameplay time, people would literally worship you with "whooaaaa the original?!" and seeing "nn" (nice name) all the time actually became a thing. *shudder*

    Also I'm a guy

    Safest to assume everyone on the internet is a guy at first (unless they give overwhelming clues of being female :P) and wait for them to correct you if they're not hehe.

    yup finding a name that isnt taken is near impossible ive been trying to find a name for my new (but not sure on character look) asura mesmer i tried tons of sites for things like trickster gods/goddesses and random wiki pages and went with a not so RP like name than i wanted to

    Thanks! I'll definitely keep an eye out for those swords. I wanted to go the winged look, but the best I'd found so far was the Light Sword/Seraph blade. They look cool, but the Ebon Vanguards look much better wielded.

    I can't post pictures or links yet, but I will soon. :P

    Thank you! Erm, I'm not sure how to give you my slider settings, other than to take a screenshot while in the character creation. I have a makeover kit I can open up and not actually use in order to screenie the settings. If there is an easier way, someone feel free to educate me!

    Yes, I blatantly copied Xuvial when making that character Yay is adorable!

    There really needs to be a Mass-Effect-style character code available, something which converts all the custom sliders/options into an alpha-numerical sequence that you can save and share.

    But on the other side of the coin, the game would lose a lot of originality as you'll start seeing lots of similar faces popping up and forums getting flooded with "best code pls!". Possibly a whole site dedicated to faces like what happened with Mass Effect lol.

    There really is a STAGGERING number of unique looks you can get with the combination of base-faces, body shapes and custom sliders, I haven't played too many other MMO's but I think so far GW2 tops them all.

    Aye, would be nice to be able to share slider settings more easily. I see what you're saying about losing originality, but sometimes it is nice to recreate a look you like an awful lot.
    The best MMO I have personally played for character customisation is Champions Online. Shame the game itself was not too great. I really loved the look of the character I made on there. Right down to changing the colour of spell effects.

    Like this?!



    I like to have fun with my throw-away BLC key farmers. This one I tried to make as sad looking as possible and I think I succeeded. I usually skip over the cut scenes, but watching her facial expression be this for everything everyone said to her was too humorous:


    "I... really don't want to be a hero. Please, stop asking me to do dangerous things!"

    Personally, I think most female Asuran faces are kind of terrible. Xuvial's/Yay's and mine (below) are the only two I really like:

    Well there are a few games that have more options for faces (Aion and EVE Online come to mind) but GW2 does pretty well in that regard I think.

    after playing tera i try to find sliders for characters people have already made as im just too lazy to spend hours on making a character only to hate the class or something and delete it.. for my asura i basically took the sliders of the default female necromancer on char screen and gave it to my mesmer it looks nice but mesmer just doesnt seem all that great tbh

    can someone tell me how to make Hi-Res screenshots? I can't find this option in the menu anymore... There was such an option in the past, I'm sure.
