Sylvari are new, huh? You're sure it's not just a new take on a dryad? Well, I'll give the GW2 team the benefit of the doubt, but the Sylvari are not my first racial choice. I'm a little concerned that plants and fire don't go so well together. Better to be a human or charr I think.
I think the sylvari need some improvement. They don't look very cool. It would suck if not many people play that race. However, the charr look a whole lot better. They need to look like they have been through a lot.
stfu game designer... i'll play mmos only when you greedy corporate bstrds stop collecting monthly fees for a game i paid and bought already.
they dodnt look all that bad, rather tasteless, probably the least appealing race in my opinion, though I would like to see what their armors look like.
bravo ANet design team, i am really impressed with this race. i never even gave them a second thought before, but now i am impressed. this pic series looks just so detailed, bold and unique; http://www.arena.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/AudreySeries.jpg
@Evilnator: To be more specific, ArenaNet has arguably the best artist on their team. NCSoft is just the publisher.
indeed they are quite originall, i espacially like the branch like hair, and i would like to see more of them especially on what kind of different armours/clothing can you get from nature, especially high level gear. Also I wonder how they would look in heavy plate armour :)
I like the new Sylvari design. I was afraid that they will look like anime or emo. But they are unique. I saw some really good characters in the video. You don't have to look like gay if you choose Sylvari. I love ArenaNet.
Aren't they pretty much just dryads? I'll be playing a Char warrior anyway. This game looks so awesome.
@NeverMore0 Couldn't possibly have just stumbled in here by accident, don't you wish it was easier to be such a troll.
Im always glad to see new artwork, and the graphics are easy on the eyes. NCSoft has some of the best artists on their team. Very Interesting race, really looking forward to this game.
but that's just it these are not elves they are sylvari :D , i think they did a good job at redesigning them because the 1st models of them didn't feel organic enough ,i to cant wait for this game , sylvari seem to be more than a new race to me it means even deeper GW lore , and thats one of the reason i love the GW universe !
Although Elves attune to nature has been done to death, this looks pretty good. Seems you can create pretty cool characters. Can't wait for this game.
