The Daily Grind: What race do you wish Guild Wars 2 would add?

    
120

One of the things Guild Wars 2 players wanted in an expansion — and aren’t getting in Heart of Thorns — is a new race. For this morning’s Daily Grind, Massively OP Kickstarter donor Kieran wants to know which one you had your heart set on:

If they ever add a new race to Guild Wars 2, which one should it be? Or should they not add a new race?

Maybe some folks would prefer dev time be focused on new content instead of new playables and animations and gear for them, but for my part, I’ve always wanted to see the Tengu, and not just because it would mean Cantha. OK, mostly because it would mean Cantha.

If the question were about Star Wars: The Old Republic, though?

Ithorians. Easy.

What about you? What race do you wish were added to Guild Wars 2 (or your MMO of choice)?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Kodan would be my first choice. Tengu second choice. Largos would also be cool.

Tengu… Tengu… a million times tengu

Blargh, I completely missed this post. 

GW2, my answer will always be the Tengu. I just love their aesthetic and the potential variety they could have with their various beak shapes and feather patterns. 

As far as SWTOR goes, Trandoshan. I played one in SWG and absolutely fell in love with her. Please let me bring my Trando back. :*(

FFXIV? I want either something in-between Lalafell and Miqo’te (Miqo’te being too normal and Lalafell being too potato-like), or an actually semi-bestial race with full-body fur or scales, possibly one with a snout. Needs more variety, dammit!

Nreff Gamhuin Aye, I’m referencing the one dwarf, made entirely of stone, you meet during the moleman attack on the Durmand Priory.

FROG PPL / ITS THE ONLY RIGHT FUCKING ANSWER. Anything other than that is a big fuck up in my opinion.

Nreff Yeah I was really disappointed to find out that the expansion would not have a new playable race, especially the Hyleks considering the Maguuma is the focal point. Perfect place to put a Hylek starter zone.

Red Alert Costly and time-consuming….but not impossible.

Tengu for sure. But I also love the skritt. Highly doubt they’d ever be playable but they are awsome!

Skritt. Because clearly Guild Wars needs a cheese shortage.
