OMG Last minute disaster!

I was totally and fully 100% commited to making a human male, but after reviewing some of my screenshots from BWE and Stress Tests and watching some gameplay videos, I simply cannot decide between Asura and Human!

HELP!

Pro's/Con's

Human - I like the story and "themes" of human toons better, and Divinity's Reach is amazing.

Asura - Unique, amazing animations, so cute and funny and brilliantly bastardly.

I can't decide!

 

BadSpock's Guardian - Human or Asura?

    Human, because MY guardian is going to be an asura.

    Why would you want to play a bookah?

    I feel your pain.  I was 100% set on starting with an elementalist.  So, last stress test I tried a warrior.  Damn it!  I had soooo much fun.  It's a dilemma that will make me lose sleep tonight (not really).  As for the race, I love the human area but haven't touched the Asura because I want it to be totally fresh at headstart.  

    I didn't help one bit, did I?

    I have a feeling I am going to reget NOT picking Asura if I pick Human.

    Go w/ Asura spock... it's all about the ears.

    Plus... you can kinda look like megaman.

    Honestly I'm making both Asura and Human guardians but the Human will be my main.

     

     

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

    This is the correct answer...

    but in order to justify my vote for Asura - lil Dude BIG Hammer nuff said

    Oh man now I'm going to have to make an Asura Guardian thanks Spock.

    Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

    The laugh and dance emotes on the Asura is all the reason you need to go Asura.  If you like the Human starter area... pop over and do that before you do the Asura starting area.... That's my plan anyway :)

    i found I did not like the guardian asura experience. I felt much more at home with a human guardian. just about everything else though, asura was better for me. im rolling asura thief to start. and while I would love to make an asura ranger, I fell in love with my Norn ranger which will be second, and then back to asura with elem. then eventually my human guardian.

    LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
    I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

    My asura will be my mesmer. Human, my guardian. It just fits for me.

    However, I always like the unorthodox choices.  Seeing a little guy bubble-tank a couple charrs would be something to see

    Human.

    If you choose Asura, after 10 hours you will realise there is nothing you like about it, beside animations. You wont get immersed into story and world around you and you will be regreting your choice. Animations don't have that much of a lasting appael effect.

  • ZooceZooce B, FLPosts: 586Member
    I'd say Asuran for aesthetics.  Will the racial elites factor in? Cause the guardian tomes look pretty beastly, doubt I'd use a golem over either of them in a group setting.

    I dunno, I just could not identify with the Asura background stories. Humans were more interesting background stories I could relate more to.

    i'd stay guardian with human and go warrior with asura.. Asura warrior animations are my favorite

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Human.  The Asura are cute, animations are a little silly, but c'mon they look like Stitch from Lilo and Stitch...they are giant rat/squirrel creatures...besides every PvP match I go into their are 100s of the little rodents running around..

    I just  can't understand players who play different races than what they are in real life... I mean I once met this orc and we got all friendly and then when we chatted on skype he just turned out to be some stupid human with green facepaint on....

    I'd say Asura.
