I chose sylvari, because frontlining with a plant is awesome.
I chose Norn, because to achieve something, you have to stand on the shoulders of giants - and what better support to be for that quote, than a Norn.
That is my current plan, but it is not finalized.
Hahah that's a good quote... but that could work with any profession though...
Case in point, my norn ele will be standing on the shoulders of giants, or at least the boulders that now bury my enemies.
Human because I don't play non-human races.
If Norn aren't absurdly large / their height is scalable, I might go Norn.
I'm thinking eeny-meeny-miney-moe to decide the race...
Probably not Asura though, I'm not sure why but an Asura Guardian seems a bit...weird.
I think the other way, If I make a Guardian (not my first choice, but still), it most definitively is going to be Asura. Those Asura Guardian animations are positively do die for they are so cute.
I thought about asura for guardian, but then I only want one asura (6 chars, 1 per race except 2 sylvari) and I thought a small asura was cuter with big pets. I still get to use a greatsword properly though (hitting stuff instead of making it float in the air and making it shoot lasers).
Well, if I make an engineer; it will most likely be an Asura. I just can't see one as a Guardian.
My Guardian probably won't be a Sylvari either, I want a Sylvari Necromancer so I will probably pick a different race, unless of course I decide that a Sylvari Guardian would be fun.
Charr. I want a Charr Soldier, but I don't want a Charr Warrior, so the only remaining option is a Charr Guardian.
PS I voted bacon, because bacon was an option. Always vote bacon.
