But only for humans :D

I'm not sure about that. The last customization update we got was the Olmakhan stuff.Who knows how many secluded non-human villages there are in Cantha, after they went completely xenophobic :pAsura could be crawling around everywhere underground!

Forgot about that, but what i was getting at, was that with POF they only added human customization. They didnt add anything to the other races, i dont see why Cantha will be any different. Charr got some with the sandswept release, but even that wasnt done right given they didnt add the new faces they added(there are a few), and some of the horns you can only get through abusing the make over kit.

they actually didn't add more cutomization, just more faces.i would love more customization, like allowing make-up/markings on the face.

Very jarring after the awesomeness that is gw2. But the actual character creation is very nice.

Tldr: more hairstyles yes please.

I personally prefer having a silent character. In every game, my character NEVER sounds the way I want him to sound or says what I'd imagine him saying in certain scenarios, so being able to imagine that makes me more invested in him. As for voice packs for audible emotes, I'm fine with it just so long as the game gives me the option to not sound like the Rock, such as in FFXIV.

You do have a point about them never sounding the way you like, but even the npc's have no voice in FF. Bleh.

Also re the hairstyles it's weird. I really admire/love some of the braided hairstyles I see IRL but they don't seem to fit my character. I prefer loose curly styles.

What's really sad is how it took Anet two expansions to add those Elonian hairstyles (and face shapes). Beforehand, black players got totally shafted in terms of customization. I digress however, and I also see your point 100%. As someone with loose curls, myself, it'd be nice to have some hairstyles that incorporate it.

absolutely and thank you for pointing it out. It was really odd how anything remotely close to not being Caucasian wasn't added until way later & it wasn't the same beauty that existed in Nightfall. I do appreciate what we got though, but we can still have better options in the future.

I've wanted that face for a looooooong time.

That face is column 2, row 3 at character creation. Mouth is made WAY wider, eyes are bit tweaked too. I think slightly lowered height, and slightly raised width?

I think outside of a few select named NPCs (destiny's edge for example) virtually every NPC uses player character assets. Just have to play with the sliders, even if what they do from face to face is inconsistent.

I've wanted to wish it was that simple, and even as the face you're speaking of is the closest to it (I'm not in game to verify the exact positioning but know which one you're talking about), it's still not the same as what the NPCs have. I've even sat side by side with them with a total makeover kit on multiple occasions. No deal. :(

I agree, it can be similar but not the same T_T Also another face I always wanted even before the release was this and also this wasn't available :'( and was this one:

We get a mockery of something similar- but not as beautiful in comparison

As a proud norn, and scandinavian IRL, I think we need more norse hairstyles and beards, inspired from viking ancestors, (Vikings tv show is a viable source) hairstyles and head tattoos that can go along very well, tougher facial features and more hairstyles for females.I created a norn in hope that I will be delighted by it's norse/viking vibe, but not so much... a bit dissapointing.Also the avatars on the forums for norn are a joke and almost nonexistent.p18FNDXBJK9QH.pngThis is not viking or norn, this looks like a naked, furred collar, football player posing for Vogue Magazine. Not cool.

That is my plea,Gundahar Frostborn, son of Thormund Deathstare.

absolutely!we really need more customization! more beards! like a standar short, thick beard. I mean that's very basic.also, earrings, face jewelry, more hairstyles, scars, make up. I mean even WoW is getting more customization now, and that game had a completely substandard customization options, how in 2020 in a game focused so much around looks we have so few of them to choose from?

I would also appreciate more body types for female Norn to better differentiate them from humans. I can't believe that I don't have an option to make a burly female Norn warrior.

Also the fact that female heights always max out below male heights in a fantasy game is pretty dumb. I should be able to make my female Norn just as gigantic as the males.

@Witch of Doom.5739 said:Norn female do have one long wavy/curly style, but it comes with an ugly do-rag, which I end up dyeing the same color as their hair to make it look halfway decent. If I had that style without the rag, I'd use it on all my Norn and Humans.

Also this.

My female sylvari is still using her vanilla hairstyle, because nothing else fits her as well and makes her either look like she's balding or way too masculine (for my personal view of her). I wish there were more viable choices. The same goes for male sylvari, there are only few viable choices. I know that most people only care about humans, but I don't. I hope that since Anet is even more awesome lately, they will finally listen to our plea. We are not those players that do not even bother to customize their character or care about dyeing their armor, running around looking like they're straight out of the gutter.

I would love to get some new customizations for Sylvari.

And I think there are still many niches which are not really explored for Sylvari. They are plant people and looking at the hairstyles we already have, they can look like any plant/mushroom!So how about stuff like:

And specifically looking at the Canthan expansion, there are many opportunities for new Sylvari hairstyles as well. We can get new hairstyles with an Asian flair as well as aquatic themed hairstyles for Sylvari, considering that we are going to fight the Deep Sea Dragon.

The possibilities are just endless!
