    Tengu, hands down.

    Still, would rather the game actually be improved first than expanded; I still haven't gone back to it after quitting a few weeks after release.

    Centaur. Ever since Nightfall ive always dreamed of playing a centaur race. armor would look really awesome on one. and elonian centaurs are not as hostile to humans as tyrian centaur. except calling them "two-legs" all the time

    also Kodan. i love their culture. First dibs on the name Beautiful Nightmare. :)

    I'm torn between Kodan and Tengu.

    Doesn't need housing - waste of resouces - MOUNTS ARE NOT PART OF THE LORE - jeez - read the lore and that is why we have TP - don't need mounts as another waste of resources.

     

    They are a small company and as such - doing the best they can. Yes, they messed but a bit, who hasn't (Trion did some beauts just after the release of Rift). They are also still supporting GW1.

     

    I think it should be Tengu. If you did the add in to GW1, if you had the Bonus Mission Pack, you could play as Master Togo and help the Tengu in Cantha. I think Cantha would also be a nice add on then.

    Wrong!!!!!!!!

     

    Mounts and housing are an important feature for any game to get right and to exclude them is to take away from your playerbase.  We already have enough silly races in GW2 there needs to be other forms of content before we talk of new races.

    Why are mounts an important feature for any game?

    Why... exactly?

    I honesty think the mounts blow in every game and they actually take away from a game.  I'm honestly irked that you try to speak for everyone.

    Too bad dwarves are gone.

     

    Honestly though I'd rather see them expand/improve the current skill system than add any new classes or races.

    If Kodan was added as playable I would jump back into GW2 as my main game.
  • AerowynAerowyn BUZZARDS BAY, MAMember Posts: 7,928

    Kodan would be my vote if they did add a new race.. Norn areas are my favorite and would like more snowy areas:P

    I hate when people try to state their opinion as fact... I say bring on the housing!!!

    I wish GW2 would be more like GW1 where you could mix and match classes.  I missed that part in GW2.  It took the fun out of the game for me

    i liked that part of GW1 a lot as well.. although even in GW2 you have a lot of options depending on class.. I can play my mesmer more defensively and doing all damage from afar.. I can play in your face melee build, i can play a shatter happy burst build, I can play a support slow burn condition build, i could play a healing style mantra build.. you have a lot of options in the current system if you play with it.

    All of my guild says the Tengu. The guys would love to play one. The look really bad a$$.

    I don't mind what is it, but can you make it not drop dead as soon as a boss in a dungeon looks its way!

    OP: "One of the biggest differences between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 is the ability to choose between different playable races."

    Actually and fortunately NOTHING is like original Gw. Nothing. Except name.

    The line about centaurs being the least likely to appear as playable is complete falacy.  The centaur that are at war with the humans is just a few tribes, the Hrathi from west Kryta and Modniir originating in the Shiverpeaks.

     

    There are at least three other tribes, the Maguuma tribe in the western jungles, and the Veldrunner and Losaru tribes in the southern deserts which are known to be peaceful/allied with humans.

     

    With the onslaught of the dragons, we're going to see more and more centaur dropping the war on humans and becoming alies (there are already some allied centaur NPCs in Lion's Arch). And as the dragon conflict progresses, specifically against Kralkatorrik in the southern deserts and Primordus in the western jungles, the centaur are going to become playable.

    If we can't have housing, I hope we at least get Guild Halls before too long... for a game with "Guild" in the title, we don't seem to do much, guild-wise.  As for a new player class, I'm tempted by the Ettin, but I guess I'll add my voice to the pleas for the Skritt!

    How about they just invent a new humanoid race? Why does it have to be something already in the lore?
  • RemyVorenderRemyVorender Riverside, RIMember Posts: 3,444 Uncommon
    It's going to be Tengu, but my vote is for Centaur. I haven't been able to play one since my Shadowbane days.

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,
    ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

    As a Sims player I enjoy customizing housing and I don't see that it needs to be a part of GW2. This game is about exploring. There's no need for a home base when you are traveling the world. I'm with Wormywyrm I want to see more skrit and qwaggan. Not necessarily to play as but for the comedic value. Centaurs drive me crazy. I'm not a fan of fighting against them and would not be a fan of fighting as them.

    I would like to see more differentiated armor options.

    I would love to see a story that brings the Dwarves back as a playable race.

    We don't need a new race yet. There are lotsa off other changes/additions that take much higher priority. Skill cupdates, guild contrnt, guild halls, WvW updates, new weapons, and opening the rest of Tyria. The last is very important to me.

    in my view?arenanet should keep it simple!like instead you could become corrupted norn ,or whatever other faction vs our side

    like you could become a fire charr?at end game of caurse .hell they could even make us level up again!you would keep you actual char but but the other side once unlocked would have to be leveled!hell i dig this idea!imagine you are in the black citadel you are a fire char and the other side is regular et5c(just a random idea)can you imagine the chaos!grin!

    ya i dont need a new race but i sure would like to have one ffaction unlocked per 80,so if i am a norn at level 80 i can chose between all potential foe of my actual norn .(so that i could be good or evil)of caurse only 1 good and 1 evil could be unlocked!

    a corrupted norn?

    a risen asura?

    dam this would be a great idea and relativly simple to implement i suspect!since all those are already in the game!
