    I have been looking forward to playing this game for some time, and generally I’m impressed. However, I’m very disappointed in the character creation. Nothing about it makes this game stand out from others in the same genre. There is nothing that makes your character unique. Nothing that makes you ’emotionally’ invested in the character’s development. I’d love to see ‘birthright’ skills or ‘perks’ that you choose at creation. It’s OK to make a character look different, but if they feel the same then what is the point?

    I agree. Character creation needs to be exactly that; a chance to really get creative. At the moment there’s barely anything to choose from. The latest patch shows the female character’s stance in a completely unnatural position, even with the standard stature. The hairstyles, such as they are, would be vastly improved with better textures. Same goes for the male character. Considering how much detail is invested in the environment, it would be nice to see the same with character creation. I’m not expecting the character creation intricacy as detailed in Black Desert Online, or maybe even ESO, but what’s there at the moment is sadly disappointing.

    There definitely need to be more options when it comes to character creation (and perhaps not even only aesthetic ones), but I get the feeling this is pretty low on the priority list at the moment. As much as I’d like this, I can understand that decision.

    Further, for a unique character, there should be more face models. A face morphe like for the body would be nice.

    I appreciate the decision.

    I just wanted to add that one of the things I hate with some other games is that all the characters look the same. The whole point of me playing these games is to make the character my own. I hate having to do exactly the same thing as everyone else and looking the same. So yes, more facial options. Another thought is height adjusters. Also, I love playing other mythological races, (elves, dwarves, etc). So being able to pick a different race, that I can then mold to my preference would be awesome. One other suggestion is something like an outfit style changer so I can pick how my equipment looks. Thanks!

    Great to see you are listening.

    What makes a character is not just about how it looks and the stats/skills he/she has. It is also about where the character has gone from. Plopping a character down in an environment makes no sense and ends up feeling disjointed…disconnected from the world you are putting so much effort in creating.

    To creative emotional investment you need to know where that character has come from so things like race and class (social) are important hooks to build a story upon. Then there is genetics…we are not all made equally – for example, a ‘human’ may have some Elven blood from generations in the past; how does this manifest?

    I’d love to see:
    Racial abilities – (if multiple races is a route you take)
    Background perks – i.e. what did the character do before adventuring? Were they are blacksmith or a baker? How does that affect them? How does it affect how you interact with people from different social classes in the game?
    Ancestral ability – something that makes your character unique…something that helps to make you unique.

    I hope to see more hairstyle choices as the lack of them at the moment is disappointing. And yes really need to be able to change a lot more in character customisation.

    I agree with a lot of the comments here it does need improvement and as the devs had said it is planned which is nice the things for me that currently are an issue are.

    – The sliders need to be removed they just create weird and unnatural body types.

    – The glowing eyes although shiny and pretty don’t fit at all into the current bodies well at all and look disjointed and a after thought.

    – The variation of faces and hair are quite bland and have no individual flair.

     

    Things i would like to see or variations of them in some form are :

    – More detail on character models

    – The ability to make custom faces / tweak facial looks

    – Proportional body mass scaling when increasing hero size.

    – More vibrant hair colors.

    – I don’t agree with the comments to give heros racials / perksย  etc, this takes away from creating your own uniqueness within the talents.

    – I would like to see different race options for visual pleasure more than actual in game functionality.

    For the love of god give all characters voice acting and quality audio, the immersion difference of voice acting is the single best thing you can do to draw people into your game, better than any shiny graphics of gimmicks, just good quality well read and varied voices. If there is one thing i could choose for this game it would be this. As it stands the world although pretty feels empty and hollow from a audio perspective.

    Hello people! I love the work you are doing and the desire you are putting into the game, I must agree with the comments of others that the creation of characters is very limited and needs more options to modify our character. On the other hand the portrait of the heroes and secondary characters could be better and maybe they should be in 3D I think that would be much better. Thanks for reading this

    PS: I am using the google translator because English is not my mother tongue so I hope you understand it well, regards.
