    Probably human, but I have to play test the Slyvari and Asura before I can truthfully answer that.

    From what I've seen of the Asura starting zone, the Mad Scientist vibe will be for me. I think Im going to do an Asura Warrior (Sniper.)

    I figure that since the Sylvari and the Asura are the last to be in BWE that their respective starting areas will be a higher quality. Mostly because the developers will have learned tips and tricks from designing the previous starting areas.

    I am running the Med City Half Marathon on the 27th...

    Oh wait! You meant in the game...What ever I select that day!

    First one will be a Sylvari guardian, I like the concept and general attitude of the sylvari so far, and their theme song is my favorite of the race songs in the unofficial soundtrack you can hear on youtube.

    Other chars I'll make will be a norn mesmer (I want to see how does a big fat norn look like in mesmer fancy clothes) and an asuran warrior.. :)

    What can men do against such reckless hate?

    I couldn't get into the Norn during the beta, don't really know why, I think it's just the first few events were a little boring. You know, become a snow leopard and kill some critters. Charr were also too, I don't know, industrial and dark I guess. Humans I like a lot, but I got to level 20 or 21 and don't really want to play it all again right from the get go. I've never like playing small characters. I'm going to avoid playing Sylvari like the plague in the upcoming BWEs because I want it to be fresh and brand new once the game launches. Loved my human thief though, and my main will be a Sylvari thief once the game launches.

    Probably asura since I like the fact that they are the technologically advanced race of GW2. Not to mention that it seems they might get a racial elite that summons a battlesuit.

  • orsonstfuorsonstfu Belaton, LAMember Posts: 203

    Sylvari / human.... on fence.

  • ariboersmaariboersma Yankton, SDMember Posts: 1,802

    ARG! WHY?!?!? ok so i voted Asura because I am about 60% sure on them, 40% Sylvari.. basically need to play them to fully decide. I also loved the Norn and will def. have a Norn alt.

    Probably human, because I need to look sexy.  (Sylvari just look like kindling to me)

    Will be trying all races and classes.  I have a chart already figured out which races for which classes.

    share! I am really curious about pairings ppl are going for.

    For instance my main will be ranger and will be asura or sylvari, then my ele will be asura or norn depending on the main choice.. beyond that its more "depending on" things.

  • lilHealalilHeala ZwolleMember Posts: 520 Uncommon

    Sylvari Ele as main and first alt will be Asura Engi

  • orsonstfuorsonstfu Belaton, LAMember Posts: 203

    Sylvari Warrior

    Human Necromancer

    Norn Ranger

    Asura Mesmer

     

  • sonoggisonoggi tdot, ONMember Posts: 1,119

    every race other than humans look amazing. i hate humans in every game though =S

    im starting with Norn guardian, Asura engineer and Sylvari ranger. Charr warrior and Sylvari thief will be my secondary.

  • Eir_SEir_S Argyle, NYMember Posts: 4,623 Uncommon

    Human warrior

    Norn guardian

    Norn ranger

    Haven't thought about the rest.. but I doubt I'll be rolling an Asura for a long time if at all.

  • ClassicstarClassicstar rotjeknorMember Posts: 2,661 Uncommon

    Sylvari Necro

    Asura Ele

    one of the first characters i played around with during the last BWE was a charr and frankly i found the dialogue options beyond boring so when i picked another 3 options and was pleasently surprised that the dialogue improved dramatically so that redeamed the charr in my eyes a bit so gonna mostly pick charr and norn really liked norn as well.

  • SoulOfRazielSoulOfRaziel Porto FerreiraMember Posts: 405 Uncommon

    I really didnt think that Sylvari would get so many votes! 

    thats why polls are nice xD

    yeah just by observation from the last BWE - I would have guessed charr top spot.... That was like 75% of all players that I seen.

    sylvari ranger - nature lover

    norn thief because I think a shapeshifting thief would be cool

    norn warrior because norn are pretty big, could also go char

    char guardian because they are fighter body types and because the ranged racials might cover for lack of profession ranged skills

    asura engineer  obvious

    asura elementalist obvious

    human necromancer because I think humans are kind of an evil bunch

    human mesmer even though humans are evil theyre also likeable, and because I already have 2 asura picks

    Starting with a Norn Necromancer.  The norn tend to not be too keen on messing with the dead...so an outcast I will be.  :P

     

    When I get to it, I'll roll a Slyvari Ranger as my first alt, not sure yet what quirk that one will have.

     

    Since the BWE gave me a bunch of respect for the Thief, that will probably be my eventual third profession.  Not sure about race yet, but most likely Asura.

     

    Humans are too....well....human for me, and I don't care much for the Charr.

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    I tend to play humans in D&D campaigns, because I love teh flexibility the human race has.

     

    One of the things about nonhuman races in EVERY fantasy setting is that they tend to be stereotypes. Orcs are brutes, Elves love trees, Dwarves need to bathe...A human can be anything he wants to.

     

    That said, one of my characters, either Mesmer or Thief, will be human. Possibly both. I do like the idea of a Sylvari mesmer though. 

     

    I may make a Sylvari Necro, cause the juxtaposition of a creature so deeply connected with life and a profession that is obsessed with death seems like fun.

     

    Asura Ranger. Because nothing says "Little techno-magic man" then being a rugged outdoorsy type with animal friends.

     

    I like to be weird.
