Would you buy a Racial Outfit?

Bringing races into the game at this point is probably not going to happen.

A simple way to experience playing as a Quaggan, Dredge, Choya, Kodan, Skritt, or, yes, even a Tengu would be to make each of these races into an outfit.

While you wouldn't get the racial backstory or racial skills, you would still get the look.

    Why outfit when you got tonics?

    I thought about that, but they have to be reapplied, limited duration, and take up space in your inventory.

    So... basically more of these?

    They only need to be applied when you log in, work in combat and will fit into your "toy" inventory.

    Still come down to how it suit my tasted, If I's something I'm really like I would make new character just to wear it, but I still prefer armor for it customization.

    Personally, one of the main reasons I would like a new race is the huge increase in customization options. A tonic or outfit totally removes that so makes it worthless to me.

    Short answer No.
    I think the whole outfit system is Blah. I want to see more full set armor. This piece by piece stuff is lame. If you want my money you know what to do.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    I would buy a Tengu outfit if it was the only option, but I'd be pretty disapointed about having no customization asides from dyes. A tonic would be even worse, because then there'd be no customization at all. Also it would annoy me to have npcs refer to me as a different race while I look like a Tengu, so I probably wouldn't do any story stuff on that character.

    Agreed. Both are bad to me.

    No space. No duration. One button activate/deactivate.

    Welcome to Tyria, new friend!

    In answer to the question: No. I think a tonic is a far better solution and, more importantly, already exists. All they'd need to do is make more.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    I'd rather more racial specific armour & outfits VS being a new race-- the way Charr have been treated gave me PTSD towards anet adding a new race. It would just be overshadowed & unproperly designed for universal armors or outfits. It would have been better if outfits were unique to each race instead of only fitting properly on humans.
    It's like situation with SE & the Viera & Hrothgar races. They were added quickly into the new expac, but are incredibly unfinished. You can't even wear helmets or hats on these races & armors look terrible on them yet people are actually asking for another race even thought the viera & Hrothgar are 100% unfinished

    Not really into Outfits in game. Players that doesn't play specific race, will probably ignore outfits since its something they could not use.
