I couldn't help myself...I bought GW2 today xD Being a writer/gamer is dangerous...the inspiration from mmo's is endless to a writer/gamer. Unfortunately, time isn't and there is never enough time to play and write, so I must choose wisely. GW2 art style is very inspirational and now I want an Asura too xD It's choosing the class that will be hard for me xD
Yeah, this little guy just jumped out of the screen at me. Five slots, five races. I'll just have to prioritize professions.
I wouldn't want an army of those coming out of the darkness towards me, undead pets or not.
Heh, it's one of three options in the Necromancer creation process. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was what I wanted. I went back and changed his skin color and a few other things.
Maybe its just me, but why do those Asura seem to look so EVIL? Its always the first thought that pops in my head when i see them.
It would be more accurate to say they are amoral, I think. ANet made an effort to get away from the cute little race angle. They're little, kinda cute; but a little creepy, too. They remind me of Stitch in Lilo & Stitch, to the point where I found it odd that they have normal human voices.
Yeah, that is like Stitch. Totally Stitch. Stitch in a creepy skull mask, sort of like a cross between a gremlin and those skull kids in the Legend of Zelda OoT game! But their diminutive stature still makes them cute :D
