    Yeah I found the Asura one of the better races to play. Even moreso due to their small size when doing stuff in close quarters like some of the jumping puzzles.

    Sylvari seemed about the worst for me as far as storyline. And have you seen that freaking male Sylvari dance.... it was amusing as hell watching it for its ridiculous factor but man... just wow.

     

    I tried a Sylvari, twice, and really couldn't get into them. I don't know if it's due to the profession (elementalist most recently) or the race itself, but it didn't stick. Maybe as a mesmer it would be different, I don't know, but I had three mesmers in GW1, trying to stick to my one here. The Asura dance is pretty good. The human "Shuffling" dance is spot on, they nailed that one beautifully. I like the Charr "tribal" dances actually... knowing what they're based on and tying it to the Charr themselves and their lore has me now thinking it was a brilliant choice. Norn are silly.

    Oderint, dum metuant.

    My favorite race remains Norn, by very far. But then, I'm mad of celtic/nordic lore in "real" life, so I just love the setting.

    Asura are funny, and I will definitely slowly level my engineer, but I still prefer Norn, even after trying all races until at least 15+ (during beta or after release).

    I'll eventually play a Charr if they ever make them able to run on two legs, like the Charr NPCs can. They look quite badass with a weapon, but I can't get into the 4 leg running animation.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    Dear Diary,


    Wine coolers will do that, seems to be a theme with you. That and baiting the forums.


    I like my story, played it all the way to 80.

    *Thanks for sharing

    The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

    At level 12 and had to log off...so boring.  But, i will continue on, because I must find the "game of the future" in there somewhere...

    Only decent stories or i may say 'tolerable' ones are on Asura side. The msot boring stories i came across were for humans and norn. Even sylvari is bit better. Havent tried charr yet.

    The Charr storyline is actually pretty good. I think it's a bit over the top, but overall, I enjoy it.

    blacked out drunk storyline from norn is by far my favorite early story in the game.. just too funny

    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

    The last toon I rerolled was a Norn Guardian. It's the one I play. Yes I still do. (play) It's still good to hop in when I've got less than an hour to kill (By kill I mean beat shiz up)

    I am currently playing a norn guardian (female). And thanks to the voice acting i play the game on mute. No kidding. That is how bad and cheesy voice acting is for norn females.

    out of all the females i'd say norn is easily my least favorite VO but overall it's not that bad and they are going for the nordic/viking feel and think it fits it alright.. but i do like the other female races VO a lot better

    Somewhere along the way, they confused Nordic Viking Female with Giant Amazon Supermodels (Who can't act)

    And again, to be fair, WoW did it too, back in Wrath.
