MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller gets the ArenaNet team to spill the beans on Guild Wars 2's combat system, technology, social activities, and more in this exclusive interview.
You have a large number of races in the game, how will they work together?
Eric Flannum - Lead Designer:
In our lore none of the five races are at open war with each other but none of them are close allies either. The exception to this is the City of Lion’s Arch which is an independent city state that welcomes all races equally. In Lion’s Arch you can see charr technology working hand in hand with asura magic and the resulting teamwork has turned Lion’s Arch into the preeminent mercantile power in the world.
When it comes to gameplay all of the races bring something unique to the table. We use racial skills to give each race its own flavor and also to bring players a wider breadth of options to consider when building their character. An asura player will always have a way to blast enemies with magic while a Sylvari player can always choose to heal their allies.
