In Topic: [Answered] when do reserved names expire

30 October 2012 - 05:31 PM

Names are also reserved for 24 hours after a character is deleted.  Here's an example, My husband wanted a magic user but was waffling about which he wanted so he started with an elementalist then deleted that and tried a necromancer with the same name, his name was safe for a day after that than he loses it back to the pool of open names.  I think he restarted that character a half dozen times before he settled on a class.

My point is try back in a day or two if you really want the name.

In Topic: Human And Norn Favoritism. Why?

18 October 2012 - 02:44 AM

I tried out a Sylvari Warrior, but couldn't get into the class and hated the started city.  Everything looks sort of the same, and it has multiple layers.  If the map were a little more user friendly I would probably make a new Sylvari.  As far as the aesthetics, they really aren't too different than humans.

Chihuahua-goblins are ugly and their city sucks.

My reasons for not playing Charr are a bit more complicated.  I like the concepts that A-net used to design the Charr but feel they did a rather poor job on certain aspects.  Bipedal creatures need a center of gravity that lies in line with their feet.  IF you draw a line perpendicular to the ground and passing through the Charr's feet, the center of gravity lies in front of that line.  Arguably that could imply they are knuckle-walkers like Gorillas or Chimpanzees, but if you assume this then two problems arise.  The first is that their arms are not long enough and, in this case, the center of gravity is not far enough forward.

Humans are humans and since I am one, I can role-play one.

I honestly thought I would hate the Norn, but my husband wanted to play one so I rolled one to play with him.  My concerns before we started playing was that the Males would be LARGE AND POWERFUL, while the women were tall and slender.  I was expecting females that looked like they would break in half if they ever tried to give birth to such a large and powerful boy child.  They are a little on the slender side comparatively but not so much that it bothers me.
