Agreed. I'd like to see more brutish women characters in MMOs, instead of being something to tickle the fancy of hentai and furry enthusiasts.

That bottom picture sort of looks like Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.....

There is also a dearth of facial variety in creating human males. Really hope we receive more selection before launch.

I wouldn't say Aion's characters were unreasonably attractive. An Angel's look for an angelic people, maybe, but Asmodians looked fittingly rough for their environment. One thing I really liked was that even with their beauty the character and armour models were pretty modest. Heavy armour was heavy. Tight fitting, yes, but there were very few plate bikinis.

When I was reading the GW novels I thought of the Norn as tough, rough around the edges but they're just freakishly tall models. I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't look like this group of gals from Futurama;

To be fair, Charr ladies are pretty brutish, and despite being cat ladies, they're not what I'd call "made to tickle the fancy of hentai and furry enthusiasts". They're downright scary, which honestly, is pretty awesome.

Umm if you played the first game and you were in a guild/ally that was active with 13-16 year olds. Which chances are it was even if you didn't know. Went maybe if you went to gtob,shin je, or LA you would see someone type something about how hot livla is then someone would say something about how sexy jora was. The point is that they based norms off of norms from the first guild wars. The men were huge and the ladies were thin,good looking, and well giant. Also great hunters and all of that good stuff. Point is they were meant to look like giant super models. Also evolution? A game based off of a theory? Anyways theirs two hormones called estrogen and testosterone. Women have more estrogen then men(estrogen causes boobs and big booty). While testosterone should be higher then estrogen in men(estrogen in men=man boobs), but testosterone is what makes males on average stronger then women. Cause testosterone makes it easier to build muscle etc. So if men are big and bulky does that mean their daughters,or wife's should also be big and bulky? Umm no. Sure they can get more bulky and stronger if they do some weight training, or start lifting some heavy bears. Haha

^ I understood maybe 5% of that.

Agree with Brother7 as well. Needs more variety all around, but at least norn dudes get to look... norn-ish.

I'm all for variety, and giving people what they want. Here's hoping they create some... spectrum of differences. And if you're going to complain about evolution, the Norn noses should be tiny. Smaller noses are a cold weather evolutionary trait... thus Norwegians have small noses with small nostrils, and people in the desert have larger noses with larger nostrils.

j makes a good point in spite of barely comprehensible english, but more customization options are never a bad thing. Even with its wide range of scar options SWTOR had an awful character creator- the only thing there was a lot of were scars.

Interesting point, guest-Luna. I perceive the norn's larger noses as a half-arsed attempt to give them a burlier appearance, mostly.

Sex appeal sales. Most people want their characters look good since in reality not everyone is good looking.
