If there was a possibility to get one of the "minor", tribal, races to be a playable one, which one would you want it to be?

The choices are:

Grawl
Hylek
Ogre
Quaggan
Skritt

if they made Quaggan into a playable race, then every future character i make will be Quaggan. furthermore, if they ever gave Total Makeover Kits the ability to change the race of your character, then i would change all of my current characters to Quaggan as well.

your move, Anet.

i dare you.

Quaggan here too, I would forevermore be the cutest thing I've ever seen if they did this. <- Completely Serious.

Tengu is an amazing race as well I would love to see being playable. Of the ones you listed though I would not really want to play any of those.

Tengu, but only if they do away with the God awful sound effects that drove me mental in GW1 when Talon Silverwing was in my group.

Believe me guys, Tengu will be playable! They've even said that they were originally considererd for release...

kodan.  I want to be a bear.

edit:  if I had to strictly base it off your list, I wouldn't pick any.  Anet has enough trouble making armor work on non-humanoid races as it is (charr), and all of those would end up looking just as horrible as the charr do.

None of the above.

Tengu, centaurs, and largos interest me more. I don't expect to see largos playable, at least I hope not.

I think the point of the thread is which TRIBAL race would you like to see?
None of those are tribal. Definitely not the Tengu and Largos. Centaurs might be considered tribal, but if they make centaurs playable it'll be in the form of mounts.

Allow me to repeat, guys, Tengu are not tribal, they are civilized. They'll probably be playable soon.

I don't really want any of the tribal races to be playable. Maybe Hylek, but we have enough annoying rodents with the asura being playable and quaggans make better NPC's than they would player characters.

That's why I said none of the above. I don't want to play any of those species, and the tribal nature of their culture or society is irrelevant to my desire. I'm not convinced that quaggan or skritt are tribal anyway.

The idea that centaurs would ever be playable as mounts is just not plausible.

SInce they are minor races, they will never be playable, but I like all of them really. Not sure if I would play one, a grawl maybe.

More likely playable races: Tengu, Largos, Kodan

Not likely but I would really like to play one: Palawa Joko's undead, Dredge, Elonian centaur

As for NON-tribal I would go definitely with Tengu and Kodan.

But as for the topic, I would probably go with the Grawl. They seem the easiest out of the list to design armour around, and they look ugly! Therefore, being that they are ugly, very few people will play them, it will just be me and a few others who don't have the aggravating mentality to always choose "that race that looks as close to what you look like IRL", or "the perfect you race", or "the most beautiful race"... *cough humans*.

That's because it's a joke.

I hope we get more racial skills and armor skins for the existing races before they add any new ones. They could use more depth, imo.

Skritt. Though you would need a 100+ group to actually find out how to do the first mission...

Hylek with a nice racial tongue epic and a sweet Spanish accent..

But I'd really like to play dredge - they have rebel ones, so it's not a stretch. Immune to blind - yes please.

That would pretty much be the forced socialization some people think the game needs!  I guess it's settled then?  Skritt for 2013?  Yay shiiiiiniesss!  Shinies for everyone!

Hylek would be fun, but also probably the race that we can say will never be playable even more than the other tribal races, due to their racial immunity to poison - they'd either need to handwave that away for PCs or have a race that has a distinct mechanical advantage over others.
