Dunno about it. From the pictures they posted, it seems Sylvari will be the first race in a game that I could say the male models are better looking than the female models. But, again, that’s from what we can see from the pictures posted — probably, with some customisation, it will fall into something I’d find more appealing.
Also, I have this nagging feeling that something was lost in Caithe model (the second picture in the article) when they turned the concept design into a game model: The model seems to have turned from adult to child (as in age), which is somewhat sad. I’d love to see a model which is closer to the concept, in this case.
