Which race is more aesthetically pleasing for warrior?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm getting back into the game, but I can't decide which race would look the best for warrior.I'm torn between Charr and female Norn.I already have a level 25 Charr warrior, but I made it about 2 years ago and I'm unsure whether I should delete it and start over as a female norn.Warrior just seems natural for the demeanor and background that Charrs have, but aesthetically, I feel as though female norns are able to wear heavy armor in a cleaner fashion (less clipping) without being too big and bulky like male norns and too slim like humans.

My warrior is a small, grumpy-looking little goblin of an Asura, wearing all the black, red and gold, try-hard, spikey, oversized, on-fire skins I can put on him. This is the ultimate warrior aes

If you’re looking for aesthetics, join the female human meta.

The smallest asura with as many knock back and knock down skills as you can load on the skill bar.   I really enjoy the aesthetic of a tiny runt knocking massive ogres and ettins around the

I would say Male Norn or Male Charr, because they are mighty.But also human and Sylvari could be a good moderate choice ( more realistic and less pumped ).

I suggest you to try on SPvP lobby the greatsword and hammer animations ( which are the best animations for a warrior ), then decide yourself.

Ps: remember that with both large characters as charr and norns it is difficult to achieve tasks like JPs.

1) MOST IMPORTANT: NEVER delete character! You will lose the birthday presents. Park it somewhere else to mine a node if you dont like but never delete it. A new character slot in not that expensive and once/twice a week it gets discounted.2) As above, try animations on pvp lobby, some may be off putting. Norn female gs animation is kinda weird.

My warrior is a female Norn. I love her. She’s my Viking warrior babe. Slight tan, blonde hair with the quiff/central Dutch braid and forehead jewellery. She’s the kitten.I disagree with the above, Norn female can handle the great sword with more grace compared to other humanoid females in game.

"Best" and "aesthetics" are highly subjective. Me, I don't care for either of the large character models. I make mostly human female toons. While I like the Asura, their models are so tiny, it feels like a waste to dress them up. Sylvari are... just ok.

But follow the advice to never delete an old toon, since it resets the birthday rewards.

The warriors are supposed to be strong and imposing. As already suggested male norn or charr are your best bet for this. I find it stupid to supposedly be playing a heavily armored juggernaut which is a head or two shorter than the random norn/charr in light/medium armor standing right next to me.

Personally went with norn male for that barbarian look. No regrets.

Definitely Charr! Female Norn have ridiculous body posture and girly movement for a warrior/hunter race, and their fighting noises sound like they were taken out of a s&m adult movie.

Weird, I was going to suggest female norn for those exact reasons.

It all comes down to personal preference.

I have five warriors, and i settle thier race by weapon choice. Hammer war i go with norn; axe war i go with Charr; Rifle war i go with Asura; condition war i go with Sylvari; sword war i go with human.

This.

That being said, I have five Warriors: two Human Berserkers, one Asura Spellbreaker, one Human Base Warrior, and one Norn Berserker that will eventually become a Spellbreaker. Warriors can be anything you want. I made my Asura Spellbreaker the shortest, lankiest build I could and he's my dedicated CC machine that hits like a truck. :P
