Ok so my plan has been to go through one of every race with a different profession. So human and Char now done I’m just starting Sylvari. I’d obviously seen them out in the world but have only just now taken a good look at them.
My comment is really simple, I think there are lots of cool things they could have done with a plant race and so to make it a humanoid made out of plant shapes and textures seems a bit of a cop out. I know the lore supports this as the Pale tree was placed on human graves and also they were intended to look humanoid to better communicate with other races.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the way they look but like I’ve said. There is so many other interesting plant themed race ideas to go at. So I’m wondering was the choice to go for a more simple design brief simply down to time constraints or was it a choice born from what you actually wanted to deliver in terms of the look of the final version?
