    Zojja. I miss her and I wish Anet would give us an actual update on her condition that doesn't amount to the hearsay we got from Episode 1 of LWS3.

    Of course, I love Asura in general but of them all I like Zojja the most. I miss sassy, angry science smol. ;-;

    World's largest Zojja fan.
    You can't trust Charr. They belong to Bangar now.

    Always respect the necromancer, though, there wasn´t that much of her to see in this expansion, I hope she´ll make an appearance in the next living story.

    Kasmeer for sure!

    I love her looks, her personality and she is a strong mesmer :)
    She and Marjory are such a cute couple, as well. :3

  • Ayumi Spender.1082Ayumi Spender.1082 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Zojja, Logan, Rytlock.
    I can't pick.
    Zojja is the best Asura.
    Logan is someone I can see understanding much better than most characters in the game.
    Rytlock is the best... well... he IS the best Charr but that sounds like an understatement. Pretty much usually one of the best when he's not around other people to kitten him off (yeah that of course would be Logan being one).

    So.. Zoglock?

    Tybalt. It was nice to have a non-stereotypical Charr around for a while. :/

    Okay, okay, out of the poll choices? Taimi. The story has got so dramatic that it's nice to have some comic relief around. Canach is okay too.

    I can't stand Rytlock. There's too much story focus on him and he's always whining or bragging, usually without a cause. He's useless in story battles (because he gets knocked out long before the battle is over), whereas others such as Kasmeer at least have support abilities and enough sense to not try facetanking everything.

  • Taimi

    Taimi. Reminds me a little bit of Tiny Tina from Borderlands 2.

    He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster

  • Rytlock Brimstone

    For this list i choose Rytlock, his sarcasm makes me laugh
    Taimi is a good second.

    Who is sadly enough is not on the list is Tybalt. I liked his char very much. Too bad he did die in personal story

  • Ohoni.6057Ohoni.6057 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Taimi and Canach are both great. I also love Marjory, but she hasn't done much lately. Kasmeer can be fun, but has mostly been like wobbly and dramatic lately, and Braham was just SUPER annoying since HoT, Taimi is an actual child, but what's Braham's excuse?

  • Rytlock Brimstone

    Ugh, I cannot STAND Sieran. WAY too cheerful.

    As for the actual poll? Rytlock. He's not my favorite Charr, but he's my favorite of the ones listed. Taimi and Canach are VERY close behind, and I really dig the banter between Canach and Rytlock.

    Can't decide between Canach for his charming wit, or Rox for her humble demeanour and pleasantness.
    As of PoF Rytlock seems to have become a bit of a muffin.

    You stand to benefit more from making friends than you do making enemies.

    Kralkatorrik immediately followed by Aurene

    , because then I didn't have to listen to any more of it.

  • Braham

    I like almost all the story NPCs, but Braham and Rox are my favourites! They make a great team. Taimi is also really funny, and the whole Rata Novus story with her is really interesting. Canach's snarky comments are of course also always a welcome sight :D

  • Ashantara.8731Ashantara.8731 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Logan Thackeray

    I actually like Marjory best, but some of her dialogue in the past has been a bit overly cheesy on some occasions (in particular when she called Kas "doll" and the like at the end of each sentence - I don't like the exaggerated use of terms of endearment in any romantic relationship, but especially not the ones that make you sound like a macho). I also did not like the way she reacted to the Commander when Lazarus showed up in Aurene's chamber. But I am glad she is back and look forward to seeing more of my favorite GW2 couple. <3

    I used to be a huge fan of Canach until PoF, where his banter with a majorly infantile Rytlock got so much on my nerves that I grew a bit tired of him.

    Logan Thackeray has always been a favorite of mine, and so far he is the only character that has always acted in an adequate way, the only one who has never diasppointed me. ;) So I picked him. :)

  • Myrdreth.6829Myrdreth.6829 Member ✭✭✭

    I like Canach the most. He is really funny and I love his personality.

  • nottsgman.8206nottsgman.8206 Member ✭✭✭

    was tough to choose between Canach and Rytlock, but Canach won out in the end. the others didn't even get a thought from me (never liked them).

  • all, exept braham, he's such a crybaby.
    the banter between canach and rytlock in pof is priceless

    but as others said, my favorite appledealer isn't on the list

  • Shirlias.8104Shirlias.8104 Member ✭✭✭✭

    At first i wanted to put all "good characters" which took part in the story as main or secondary characters ( Jennah, Anise, Threarne, Faren, Aurene, Eir, etc... ), but the pool has a capacity of 10, so i had to cut ( and it was luck that i was able to put all the currently characters into the list ).

    Maybe next pool will be "your favourite enemy" ;)

  • Taimi

    Taimi, because even though I'm aware of how overly smart they made her, she's still one of the more amusing members of the team, and I love her!

    And I know it wasn't asked, but as for who I absolutely cannot stand, to the point that their involvement hampers my enjoyment of the story, that would be Braham, with Marjory coming a close second.

  • Maikimaik.1974Maikimaik.1974 Member ✭✭✭

    My favorite story character is Ei... oh wait.. ANet killed off Eir from a random mob in the Jungle, remember?!??? THANKS for that ANet! :rage:
    So yeah, since we have no Norn hero anymore, and I really like Norns, (You know why I am not counting Braham here), Caithe is my favorite one among with second place, Kasmeer due to her nobility and her beauty.

    Also Zojja is way better than our currently annoying little kitten Asuran stereotype hero, I wish ANet could give us an update how's she doing and how well she's recovering from the rescue of the jungle pods. :disappointed_relieved:

  • Ardid.7203Ardid.7203 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Taimi and Canach are the only ones I would like to know in person. Maybe Zojja and Rox too. All the others are either too scary, depressing, boring, stupid or plain crazy, I would truly prefer to not be near them.
    I choose Taimi because she's as snarky and capable as Canach, but even funnier.

  • Genesis.5169Genesis.5169 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I came here knowing it was gonna be canach because he's the only character not plastered with emotional nonsense, he's just a guy who had a debt who needed to pay it off.

    For those on the forums who advocate for the removal of duo queues in Spvp, realize your actions over the past 7 years has destroyed gw2 Spvp and thinking doing the same thing again is a good idea after several years of it not working crazy. Get better at pvp.

  • Taimi

    It was between Rytlock, Canach, and Taimi for me. I love the banter between them, and they each have something in their background/personality/story that makes them appealing to me. Since we could only choose one though, I voted for Taimi, because the Asura are my favorite race, and she's so adorable!

  • Canach

    I voted for Cannach because I like his sarcasm. My REAL favourite character though is "The Pact Commander". She/he does most of the hard work, so hats off to her/him. ;)

  • paintpixie.7398paintpixie.7398 Member ✭✭✭

    The list of characters I don't care for is longer.
    But I am happy that Rytlock found a better boyfriend. I like Canach better than Logan, which isn't saying much because I can't stand Logan AT ALL.

    Caithe was my favorite from the books. I liked Eir a lot. Canach is funny. Zojja is okay. Rytlock is okay. I miss Trahearne.

  • Ashen.2907Ashen.2907 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The only NPC I actually liked died in the jungle.

    Of those who remain Canach is tolerable, even fun sometimes.

    Cant really vote though as I do not think that the choice should be based on who is least obnoxious.

  • sorudo.9054sorudo.9054 Member ✭✭✭✭

    my own, tho even she has a horrible VO

    the truth is harsh, my opinions are too.

  • Taimi

    Taimi, easily the most enjoyable and funny character in the game for me. I actually find her voice quite fun and entertaining as well.

    Canach would be in second, as I do enjoy his blunt/dry humour and sarcasm, but Taimi is leagues ahead for me. Kas would probably be third, as I just like her character and personality.

  • Rauderi.8706Rauderi.8706 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Rytlock Brimstone

    I have to say Rytlock, because of early game history with him. Still, through Path of Fire, I feel he was kinda . . whiny? Not in the voice acting, but in the dialog itself. A lot of grousing and complaining, less gung-ho soldier like I'm used to.

    :+1: for Taimi, though. Sure, she gets the brunt of being our Deus Ex and "annoying little sister" trope, but she's perky. And under that cloying exterior, she had to face some real hardship, and I was ready to bash in Phlunt's head, consequences be kittened.

    She and Rytlock have been our steadfast companions into Dragons Watch. I understand Canach's position and appreciate his own brand of reluctant heroism.
    I started off really liking Marjory. Still kinda do. With that husky voice and independent streak, I can understand why Kasmeer melts for her. :kissing_blush: I kinda waffle on my opinion of Kasmeer, though. Probably just that I don't relate to her, but she has a lot of potential pathos: family issues, relationship struggles, her gods suddenly appearing. I'm curious how she'll navigate.

    Many alts! Handle it!

    Logan Thackeray

    I voted Logan, if we are basing it off of story arcs, he seems to be the only one who has matured in the last 5 years. The only one who hasn't failed me in being solid

    Caithe is just being forced on us to accept her

    Marjory and Kasmeer are better characters overall when they are not together

    Zojja is probably dead.

    Rhytlock basically caused all the problems the world is facing right now and we are just shrugging it off.

    Taimi is annoying. It's not even cute anymore.

    Canach has his moments, but those moments are always sarcastic. (okay Daria We get it)

    Roxx hasn't really done anything for a couple of years now. She basically should become Rhytlocks Idol.

    I won't even start with Braham.

    The night blossom~ Followed by Zojja and Taimi. Eir was high in my standing, but...That was a few months for me and I still can't stop the hurt. I don't want to imagine how I'd react if Caithe died.
    We need to know Zojja's state. She's been out for two ingame years. When we found her, my heart shattered at her condition. I'm wondering if she's blind and that's why we haven't seen her. She said she couldn't see if you rescue her first.
