Here's hoping actual new faces and hairstyles (and maybe even figures? Me wants big booty norn!) are to follow.

If nothing else, they'll definitely be coming in the expansions :)

If you want to check if your computer will run GW2, check here.

If you find out you can't and need to think about upgrading or building another, check here.

Dat makeover kit...
Seriously, I'm really happy about that. I was looking at my character yesterday and thought; no. This isn't what I wanted.
Made a thief instead to my likings and was ready to wait for this. So I'm happy =D

i actually asked anet for that options and they reply was :
Hello Mr ----,

Thank you for contacting the Guild Wars Support Team.

We currently don't have the options for changing a character name or appearance, but this is something will likely become options through the gems store, we just don't have them ready yet. When these options do become available we'll announce it through the main website.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to let us know.

Now I can get rid of those horrible clipping issues! And the permanent portable merchant/TP/bank are awesome! I'll surely buy all of them (with gold).

Hopefully there will be hairstyles exclusive to the hair kit, that would be awesome.

Also, the name changer. It's too bad the name I want is still being be used by some other guy. Oh well.

All the single word names I wanted but one were taken, I just put special characters in the names. Ramei became Rameî.

Black Lion Merchant Contract + Trading Post Pick up contract coupled with my Forge Conduit would make me 100% mobile. I like :3

You can't make them any more but some are probably still up for grabs in the tp.

I think Anet woke up and realized there aren't enough people willing to waste cash on temporary perks, no matter how much cash Anet thought they were going to make from it in the long term. Alternatively they found out most people quit after a month so it's better to hit them with up front costs. This just might raise the value of gems slightly.
Source of your doom and gloom? oh you dont have any? I see.

thanks, I already grab one off the TP,there was about 46 when I got mines, it costed about 11g, not sure if thats over price or not, but I dont care. Im sure in the long run it would be worth it. Now all I need is that TP pick up contract so I dont have to spend 3s to WP back to LA.

Er, you can get to LA for free from any town/explorable by going to the Heart of the Mists (through your Hero window, click on the crossed swords) and running through the portal to LA.  You'll come out in Fort Marriner, but from there it's just a short hop to the Trader's Forum area.  Of course, getting back to where you were before *will* cost you....

thanks for the info, but I already knew about that, and I should correct myself, I said WP back to LA for the TP pick up, even tho you can pick up your stuff at a few areas and all cities.

The permanent items really really sound like mystic chest items.  These would have to cost thousands of gems realistically to be sold on the gem market, so more than likely they won't and will instead be very rare chest drops.
Fun while it lasted.  I guess.

So did I, but GW2 holds your character name for your account only for 24 hours after deletion. You could just make any generic character (Mine originally ended up being Norn) to claim your name, then delete that character and remake exactly as you want.

So long as you spend less than 24 hours on customizing your real character, you'll have no issues. I'm picky as heck when it comes to my character's appearances, but 24 hours would be a taaaad extreme even for me :P

I'm only happy with mine really because I spent forever on all of them. I doubt many people are going to use strange outdated peculiar honorifics as well as the same name so I was set name wise I guess..

I picked a look for my asura and kind of want alot of my other professions to look the exact same. It took a really.. really long time to make sure my warrior asura and ranger asura looked the exact same. I am kind of rping a profession change system like in some old mmo (FFXI). I tend to just enjoy being the same on my mains. My alt characters will get creative though. I'd not mind it if they add a character creation number value spreadsheet/ability to save your characters looks to file or something along with the appearance potions. That way you could make sure they are consistent if you want.. and people could trade appearances on websites (download your favorite celeb! ~_~ haha).

It was done that way in Saints Row 3 and a few other games lately... it worked out fairly well. Even perfect world had something similar.

I guess we have to wait and see, huh?
