Since the announcement of the Sylvari concept, and their association with The Pale Tree, my desire to know more about them intensified. I was certain that at least one of my characters would be a Sylvari.
With a curious awe, their first appearances were noted.
Sylvari were presented as new plant creatures, starting their lives in seed pods, sentient beings, their minds filling with wonder as their self-awareness increased. And for each, a link, a bond, to the Pale Tree and, to The Dream. For some of us, It was all very alluring, and we were hooked from the onset,
However, apparently not all was as it should have been...
With anxious anticipation, Sylvari watchers had to endure the dark days of the unknown...Our beloved Sylvari were being redesigned!
Although not everyone likes change, many would agree that the Sylvari were greatly improved. The compelling story behind Sylvari redesign only enhances their mystique.
The concept of the Sylvari, and their redesign, indicates that this gamer will be spending considerably much more time in Character Creation mode.
For the Sylvari concept, and subsequent redesign, I offer my thanks and appreciation to the ArenaNet design team. Well Done! [But, we already knew that, didn't we.]
