    Agreed.

    I play both male and female toons.
    I'm assuming the races in Wildstar can't be anymore polarizing than Tera's lineup, So I'm gonna have to say Aurin it is for at least one of my toons.

    I'm definately playing an Aurin.
    I'm not yet sure which gender I might go for, but yeah it would be nice to have scars or tattoos. They have to have build, possibly height sliders too. The more control over how your character can look like, the more involved in that character you can be.
    SWTOR did it fairly well, I think. EvE does it brilliantly. You could be a skinny rake, face like grated cheese, you could be a supermodel...

    I know it's off topic, but character creation is very important to me as well.
    Rift was good, especially after WoW.
    I couldn't agree more.

    I didn't think SWTOR was very good, in fact I would say poor. You only had 4 standard body types to pick from, no sliders.

    I never played Rift, but one character creator I did enjoy was City of Heros. You had a multitude of things to pick from and change. I spent a very long time in the creation part and I really enjoyed what I could do.

    So, the more choice the better.

    There is a lot of customization in GW2 with a bunch of sliders.

    I spend 2 days on Tera creating my first character. I wrote down what the options were so I could recreate it during the name reservation. Plus a couple of hours that I spend on looking for the perfect name.

    I really hope the Aurins have fun and nice options to choose from. I want to create the most cute Aurin out there. Like my Dwarf Priest. Sigh good old times.

    lol :). Discussing the character creation features we liked most from our combined experience with different mmo's and trying to put a hypothetical dream character creator together.

    When I saw early footage of Tera with what looked to me like pedophilia bait, I was turned off the game. Still have not bought it. However, I didn't get that from Wildstar because even if they were a "bunny" race... Well it "looked" like it was done more in good humor than giving hentai makers inspiration for their next film.

    I agree... I started playing Tera (even rolled Elin) and took a benefit of a doubt approach. Recently they had a summer celebration, everyone got swimsuits. You can guess what a lot of folks did with their Elins. I just can't seem to log in anymore.

    Aurin are nothing like what we have seen in Tera. To compare the two is a very large stretch of the imagination imo.

    I think that says more about the people playing then the people who designed them.

    Yeah, Aurins looks well above legal age, and what skin we have seen so far is not really that much -- I'd still have to say the cleavage is too deep for anything but evening party wear of the less conservative kind if even that :p

    I have seen the Elins swimsuits, and they look ok to me, they look like children. The Elin alone would have been fine, in a game where all other races was childlike and the theme was childlike, they would have been cute. But in TERA, where all other races look like pinup models for the kinky giving the game sexual overtones - in that context it is too easy to think pedophelia bait.
