    They all look good in their own way. I like Human and Charr personally.

  • Char

    The poster child for Revenant, Rytlock, is a Charr.

    Also, Renegade is entirely Charr-themed.

    And yet the art from HoT anf PoF depicts Herald and Renegade in the skin of a male and female lettuce...

  • Char

    Definitely charr. Even recreated my rev as a charr. Heck, revenent armor has the only pants that account for charr tail physics.

    Human

    I usually play near/human and in GW2 I love the norn race because they are BIG and snow leopard OP for classes with no access to stealth. Who knows when you will want/need it? ;-)

    However, when it came time to choose a race for my revenant I chose human because you cannot slot in racial skills and armor skins in general "fit" better on them. On norn some of the armor skins are not tailored very well.

    I do not regret my human choice.

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

    Sylvari. Rev has this glow on his arms depending on chosen legend, and cabbages have their own nightly glow of nearly any color you want. Really helps propagate the outerwordly feel of it.

    Norn

    Lore-wise i'd go (and went for Norn), their Havrouns already are said to be able to travel to the mists. So they're more like to have been the first Revenants (just not called that) than Rytlock.

    Style-wise those armour and weapon sets look good on just about everything, although the Mistward armour is one of the best looking armours for char. Probably because it was fitted for Rytlock first i guess, most other charr armors (even cultural ones) look weird and ill fitted. But it doesn't mean that it looks worse on other races, just that for charr heavy users its one of the best fitting armours in the game.

  • Asura

    ive been playing charr rev since it came out and right now im trying to re-roll and deciding between sylvari and asura. It's incredibly difficult to find more than a couple armor sets thats look good on charr and so far I like the glow and style of the sylvari, makes it seem easier to recreate my gw1 ritualist feel and look like ive come straight from the echovald forest. And I always like asura cus they remind me of maplestory characters lol

    charr because we look 2times better then everyone else in this class

    Asura have amazing cultural heavy armour, and are all around awesome.
    Charr have Rytlock, but for some that may be a reason not to go charr. Renegade is charr-themed, too.
    Sylvari have Ventari as a legend.
    Humans work with everything.
    Norn, well, I never liked them. Male norn look ridiculous, and female are just humans with bigger sliders and worse voice acting.

    This guy knows what's up... All about power clashing your glows.

    with the night glowing weapons too, when i play my Sylvari i feel like the glow is an Anime speak for "kittens getting serious"

    you say mesmer i say shadow sorcerer

    I went for human with mine because the heavy lore tie ins were the only way I was going to have fun playing a human when Norn and Sylvari are options.

    I do wonder if the asura dodge animations look even better on a revenant though. And their cultural heavy armour is great.

  • Edds.7681Edds.7681 Member ✭✭

    Human, Norn and Charr

    you can always check the Thaumanova Reactor fractal which turns you into an Asura

  • Slyvani

    Slyvani for the looks, Asura for the moves

  • Char

    PvP: Human
    Anything else: Charr

    Norn

    Rev is a heavy armor class and I always try to build my male heavies as Speish Murheens, so for me Norn is the right anwer.

    I so wish I could have the asura animations on a non asura... I especially love running with the GS resting on your shoulder.

  • Asura

    Asura is best for all

  • Rym.1469Rym.1469 Member ✭✭✭

    If you're after animations, Charr has the best ones, only Staff #3 is questionable.

    Yeah, I stream once in a blue moon.

    Been trying out different pvp races for rev since i have a charr rev with mostly everything completed and something felt off. Made an asuran rev to test in pvp and idk why but its way more fun now. And i love the animation for mace 3 lol just a double flip and a body slam is dope. They look like theyre doing that drunken style of combat and its great.

    Charr. The only answer is charr. The answer is always charr.

    Yesterday the devil whispered to me "You are not strong enough to withstand the storm." Today I proclaimed to the devil, "I am a believer, I am follower of Christ. I am THE STORM."

    charr, just for rhytlock. he needs a charr revenant friend

    sadly, asura would be the overkill-race if looking for pvp/wvw ,but looks completely buggy even in character-creation menu
