This might sound silly but I care a lot more about any given MMO character’s hair than face. Realistically, I’m never gonna see the face outside of posing for screenshots or cutscenes anyway. My hair, however, is gonna be visible most of the time I’m hiding my hat or helm, which if I’m honest is most of the time in every game that allows that kind of cosmetic tweaking. Unless the hats are awesome. Or unless they are designed to show some hair even when worn, the mark of a really good cosmetic system!
I want long, flowy locks and cool intricate coifs. I want stuff that animates, doesn’t look stiff, and isn’t just 10 variations of mohawks. Above all else, I want hair that doesn’t clip with all the other cosmetic crap I’m gonna layer on.
So let’s hash this very important question out: Which MMO has the best character hair in the genre?
