Because there seems to be so many damn things to do in this game, I figured I should spend a little more time upfront rolling a couple of characters to see if any will definitely stand out from the start.
I know. Genius.
One of the things that has got me thinking and doubting some of my original choices is the mobillity of difference races - or at least how I perceive the charr's, for example, as damn slow and asuras as damn fast. I'm assuming that this is just a matter of animation and the need for a smaller being to perform more steps to cover the same distance. No difference in actual speed.
The other thing that is bothering me is that I heard that the hitboxes are different according to race - as is, biggest hitboxes for charr and norns and smallest for asuras, with human and sylvari in the middle. I couldn't get a source for this so am wondering if anyone can confirm.
I like the idea of playing a charr but damn does it feel slow and, if on top of that, it is a bigger target (not just visually), I'll probably reroll.
See how awesome I am?
