    I think for the silvary there wont be an aged version since they are newely borned as for the humans i think you can choose an old man as a character

    Also know that they didn't have all the options open for the demo, it is after all a demo. I noticed on a few of the videos there were options that weren't availible, so who knows, maybe they'll give it more custimization to look like a wise old sage :)

    Dont worry yet, they are going to be adding dozens more opions before release.

    and since there is allready a very aged face for norn, i would not be surprised to see the same for human

    Character customization shown at Gamescom is just a demo... Lots of more options will be added at release.

    So don´t worry ;)

    The oldest Sylvari is 25 years old so that's one reason the ability to create an old wise one is not available but they can always just add the option for cosmetic reasons.

    This is not a game.

    I don't have this problem, I prefer younger characters. But it makes me sad... I am older than the whole Sylvari race! D: *just became 26 four days ago*

    I want to reborn as a Sylvari.

    I hope they give you the option of being an old sage. However, I want to go full blown baby face with them. I already feel old and want to at least look like a young buck in game. :P

    BOOYAKA!

    If you really want to look like an old sage then pick an Asura.

    There are still a lot of options left out so I imagine you'll be able to create something like that, at least for the humans.

    As the previous posters said, the Sylvari are only 25 years old as a race so I don't think you'll have an old option for them.

    i'm 25 so no problem!

    Yeah, they've made clear that the character customization seen at gamescom is much, much more limited than what they plan for launch. There will be many sliders for fine tuning facial features (they've been quoted as planning 5 sliders just for customizing the nose). I'm sure they will offer "skin textures" that offer older faces for the races where it's appropriate.

    They have access to the technology that Aion uses for character customization via NCSoft and have incorporated the technology into GW2. They have stated that the options at the extremes will be limited, in order to preserve the artistic integrity of the game. Anyone who has seen some of the extremes possible in Aion knows what they want to avoid, but there should still be plenty of tweaking available in GW2.
