    Already used by Guild Wars 2. Carbine could always ask ArenaNet if they could borrow the word though.

    I feel like gender should be in the poll. The female aurin are veeery different from the males, if you ask me

    them just play a human exile and use you imagination to pretend your guyor girl is a treehuger hippie ...... if you take tail and the animal ear they look exactly like a human ( with is like elfs look if you take the pointy ears, with is why I think elfs and aurin completly suck as fantasy races)

    I dont agree, Draken look like feral monsters or demons if you look in the dominion character build video, their posture and body proportion is compley diferent from humans and their face is humanoid but is far from human, aurians in the other hand looke exactly like humans but with animal eyers and a tail.

    Ps: I am not flaming them, I dont like them but I respect the opinion and taste of people who do like them , after all taste is like a nose, everbody has one ( except for Michael Jackson and Skeletor)

    The Aurin are not "furry" in the sense of the internet subculture devoted to anthropomorphic representations of animals. They have fur on them and some animalistic traits which means people in possession of less adequate reasoning ability (read: idiots) will immediately jump to the conclusion that they are somehow designed to appeal to this niche internet group. It's paranoid lazy reasoning and people need to cut it out because it won't serve them well in the real world.

    I love the design of the Aurin, really nice mix of elements and I think they will help to round out the Exiles in a big way. I am not super in love with their houses but it fits with their nature theme. It's kind of interesting that Carbine didn't go with a more dryad theme for them but I have to say fuzzy bunny / cat / butterfly people works.

    I like the aurins and carbine was right when they said "some people are into that" in the trailer, since i have found some Rule 34 female aurin stuff already after looking for it... (some of it is over 6 months old btw)

    I'm not against there being bunny girls or any other kind of race you could think of. I plan on playing one because I plan on playing an esper and don't see a point in playing as a human in a fantasy game.

    Anybody else notice that in general, Male aurins tend to be head and shoulders shorter than female aurins? I actually really really like this about the race, it helps lay to rest some suspicions about them being the "teen age boy's eye candy" race.

    I'm female and I admit when I first saw the anime-eyed purple bunny girl in the video (the one with the exiles on an odd planet getting chased by things) I felt the urge to kill. It's not that I hate any of the elements but just the way they were combined felt so... iffy. However I'm glad I decided to press on because the Aurin actually look pretty neat. I think the first impression of the Aurin they gave us was wrong. Purple bunny lady really should have been more savage and annoyed towards anything that isn't plant (like in the Meet the Exiles video - that was great!) and not some Disney princess idea.

    Not disagreeing with you (because I went through almost exactly the same deal, and felt much better once it was shown that the Aurin aren't JUST bunny girls, and also their males are TINY compared to them, like head and shoulders shorter from the very few pictures we've seen), just playing devil's advocate here.

    She might have been more friendly to sapients simply because "SCIENTIST! SCIENTISTS HAVE TO BE SOCIAL! Cause of peer review and stuff"

    Though frankly her giggling at the explosive plant made me want to kill something... a step too far I think.

    Yeah I suppose that's a good point. I'm going to be such a cynical scientist. xD

    The Aurin is probably the class I like the least, really not my cup of tea. But I'm going to fight for the Dominon, so I'll get to destroy all you furry <REDACTED>s. :inlove:

    I had the exact same initial reaction. The aurin, and all the races in general have really surprised me with their depth and interesting quirks once you get past the really basic looking exterior.

    the over the top manly/womanly looks for each of them fits with the general themes though. Eg: action adventure comic book type dealy.

    My little circle of friends were debating on which faction to play. I was sad when we started leaning to Dominion, but since we have finally decided on exile, I will most definitely be playing an Aurin. However, I will be sorely disappointed if I can't do some sort of slash emote, grab my tail, and hiss. :D
