Sylvari fangirl, reporting for duty!

If you’re on this blog, there’s likely one fact about me that’s quite obvious. If somehow you’ve missed it…I’m a bit of a sylvari fangirl. Just, you know, a tiny bit. From explaining why they’re unique and speculating about the redesign long before it was revealed, to wondering what makes them incorruptible, exploring their sexuality, to writing up a very short story from the point of view of my sylvari character…yeah, I rather love the sylvari. I think the only thing that comes close to how much I talk about the sylvari and how much I like them, is my love of Mesmers. Not surprisingly, my main character in Guild Wars 2 is going to be a sylvari Mesmer.

Then, this morning, ArenaNet posted up a new blog post, revealing that the sylvari (and asura!) will be playable in the last BWE?

Well, I was quite pleased.

…that may be a bit of an understatement.

Originally I had planned on getting my human Mesmer to level 30 and doing the Ascalon Catacombs during the last beta. Now, however…you’ll be far more likely to find me in the Grove. Exploring everything, taking videos and screenshots.

Part of me wants to wait for release to create and play a sylvari. But part of me…the fangirl part of me that fell in love with the sylvari the moment the very first Guild Wars 2 trailer was released back in 2009…doesn’t want to wait. And the “I’ve waited long enough” part of me is the bigger and louder part…and hence I’ll be spending quite a bit of time on the 20th in character creation, making my sylvari and getting her just right. And then screencapping the settings so I can recreate her come August 25th when early access starts.

I’ll see you in the Grove!

  1. SO excited. 😀 Going to do my best to not roll one (wanted to keep *something* fresh for launch), but at this point my willpower is weak. >_< Still, I'm more than happy to spend the first couple hours in the CC making my autumn-themed sylvari *just right*. ;D

  2. I am so unsure what to do. My name is going to be a Norn Ranger, but the sylvari are such a nifty race that now I don’t know what to do and I don’t really want to spoil the ‘surprise’ element for myself. I am in a quandary…..but boy, oh boy am I excited! 🙂

  3. Gigantic sylvari fangirl here too, but saving it for the release… Definitely going to create one though for some pvp

  4. I have only one profession left that I haven’t personally tried out during the BWEs (ranger) so I will definitely be giving that a try on a sylvari character. I’m also going to re-create an engineer as an asura.
    I’m so happy we will get a chance to check out the character creation options for both races before launch… definitely going to be spending a LOT of time in there during BWE3 so I have a good idea of the options I want to use at launch, and can get right into playing on Aug 25th.
