Since the introduction of Makeover Kits, race change has been quite controversial topic. A lot of people claim that by introducing this to the game would severely affect, if not ruin your Personal Story. They also believe that it would go against the game logic, as in "how did the guy turn from Asura to Charr?". Well, it's quite a miracle that you can switch back and forth between the genders right now as long as you have the money (don't ask me how the kit "does" it), so switching a race wouldn't be so much over the top as people make it out to be.
As for the personal story, I believe that this could be handled in multiple ways. One of them being Full reset. Basically, your story would be wiped out and you'd get to do it all over again. ("But I've already killed the dragon!" "Yeah, so have millions of other people." Get my point?) The thing can be done in a couple of hours, so you wouldn't lose a significant portion of your time like you would if you decided that you didn't like the light armor look on Charr. This would obviously lead to stacking rewards from PS - this could be handled in two ways again - either the restart of PS wouldn't provide any rewards or simply leave it as it is. I can't think of any particular reward that is so significant it could be abused. Plus, they're all account- or soulbound anyway.
The lazy man's way out would be just putting a note at the end of PS like "I've used the Mystic Kit which turned me into ______". You would keep your home instance and all and just be considered to have done some crazy experiment.
There are surely many more ways this could be handled but I want to hear your opinion on this matter guys.
