Guild Wars 2 will introduce 5 new playable races. All the various races have different advantages and disadvantages, due to their unique abilities (for example the Norn will have the ability to change shape). The choice of the Race affects the skill of the last 5 abilities of your bar!
When you’re creating your character you have to choose the breed and answer various questions that affect their personal story and it will better define the background of your character! Like the Heritage for humans, the seasons for sylvari etc. ..
In the links below you’ll find a specific description of all Races that you can choose to create your own character!
Each character created in a specific Race will start from the Race Home Town (Divinity’s Reach for humans) and choose any class of the game without any restriction. The game will give you an equipment and some weapons to start your adventure! You’ll be ready to move forward in the history, this will take place very shortly after the creation of your character.
