I love the tattoos.
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 think in some cases it uses different channels - but the same core drive exists in all of us. A guy might scoff at shoes - but try very (too) hard to appear "masculine", or obsess about his physique or always have a quick one-liner or a million other things....a lot of them related to physical appearance in one way or another. We're a social species...
I've been trying for days to get the prepurchase CE but every store is sold out :'( insert "sad panda pic here"
I can take in your footwear from across the room and in a microsecond. It's not like we're having a conversation and I'm just looking at your feet the whole time...the chances are, you won't even notice - unless you're wired the same way.
As for looking a person in the eyes - in my experience, that's something that gets very creepy, very quick ha!
There have been studies conducted that suggest the shoes are one of, if not the most important aspect of your outfit. On the other hand the first features that you notice when meeting someone for the first time tend to be the eyes or mouth (smile).
Ahem... I think we're a bit off topic. So WvW, how many are going to dedicate a character to it full time in the upcoming BWE?
also, not entirely unrelated (EoD silliness/spoilers, although I think I'm one of the last people actually getting around to reading that silly book):
Mesmer and Rogue deeply appeal to me right now...and I want to explore and learn and grow with all of it...
In summary, I suppose what I'm saying is that I'm more character-orientated than functionally orientated...
GOIN ROGUE AND GOIN ON ADVENTURES
I'm thinkin' of actually having my second or third character be the same race as one of the prior ones and having them be mostly a WvW character. As for class...I have no freakin' clue. Engineer and Necromancer both sound pretty sweet for both small and large-scale PvP shenanigans.
