Anyone know if they have or said they are going to reduce grasping roots racial.

Im assuming you mean grasping vines then yes they already changed it before the stress test. It is now single target and not aoe

I would like to argue for small not being an advantage particularly because I intend to play norn -- well maybe, their run/jump animation bothers me a little-- and I hate asura. However in practice it does seem to give an advantage. It seemed easier playing as asura or even sylvair than norn. People can't see too well what you're doing. You can hide easier behind terrain. It's not *as* obvious what wepaon you have (& hence what spec abilities you have etc). You do seem to get attacked less. This is gonna matter more the more zergy it is.

This being said i choose based on aesthetics
-the weapons scale with character size so asura cant get huge weapons
-asura look like rats
-sylvari are adorable and I love them however their legs look a little weird so my light armor classes can be sylvari since i want my warrior to show leg ><
-human female have elongated legs and 16yo faces, unless this has been improved lately
-char: too animal like for me
-if i intended to roll a male character i wouldn't roll norn, or only for comedic value since they have ridiculously wide frames and can wear leapord skin
-additionally: (heavy armor is the right). I need this armor. Or at least the helm lol

OMG Thank you so much for this picture, I literally made an account to say thank you!

Thanks for the info Primus_Agmen, I saw this image yesterday. Still it seems for me too big norn race, too giant

You're welcome, though I can't take any credit for the picture itself. I wish I could remember who it came from.

But Eles do not use a hammer! ;)

Conjure Lightning Hammer? :P

For sPvP I'll most likely be maining Ele and Warrior, and maybe Thief come release, before getting to know the other 5 better, but I'm not sure which I'll be playing through PvE & WvW...
Still need to work through my Warrior footage from BWE3 & latest stress test as well, there's just so much of it!

On topic, I'm still thinking a tall Asura for my Warrior, for the animations and laughs (Charr/Asura for my Ele) :)

I love Norn but i played untill lvl 10 in Beta and it was booring at Hoelbrak.
Asuras look amazing but i definitely wanna be male and Asura male look ugly ( soz ).
Charr aka badass has a crooked back and their hometown looks too dark which annoys.
Sylvari has great animation and got good looking but their hometown is small and not so attractive.
So i choosed human which is a random race and has got a amazing hometown.

That's my opinion about classes.
I know all races can travel to different city's but their quests are still near their hometown.
