Been thinking which race will fit each profession best when it comes to lore and aesthetics.
For some time I thought Sylvari are the ultimate rangers because of their plant appearance and supposed nature connection. That is, until I rolled a Sylvari ranger and saw the basic skills...
They all come with visual effects based on wild animals - bears, birds and so on which makes me feel like the player is really pushed to play as a Norn to match the theme of the class.
"Nature" is a theme which involves more than plant life or animals, yet the ranger seems more focused on the latter. Ranger core fits Norn better, Soulbeast does as well and only Druid spec can arguably be closer to Sylvari.
Are Norn the most lore-appropriate ranger race given their cultural affinity? If they are the most fitting race for this profession, what really makes sense to roll as a Sylvari?
