As I've played through the various personal stories of races and journeyed around I've have enjoyed discovering some of the amazing details ANet has woven into the game. I wanted to share a few of them.
I made a female charr elementalist - I wanted to try it out and see if I like the character combination. I made her an Ash Legion member and as soon as I could I jumped into her personal story. I do not want to give away the plot so I'll just say she goes under cover. It is important to remember, flame legion does not allow females to be part of their forces so being a female trying to infiltrate flame legion poses a challenge.
Now what is amazing to me is ANet wrote two separate scripts depending on the gender of the charr. A male charr goes up to a sentry and give the pass word and the sentry let's him in after some short dialogue. On the other hand, the female charr talks in a fake low voice that is just hilarious and the sentry responds, "Whoa! Do you have a cold or something?"
I love it! They took in to account there would be both female and male genders and how it would play against the flame legion.
Here is another example. I've noticed when you click on another character, be it NPC or another player's, your character's head moves to keep focused on their face. Take a look at the following picture.
Finally, this little gem. In GW2 a player can wonder around any open house or building and talk with the NPCs inside. Sometimes you get a story, info, something funny or just general chit-chat but shouldn't it strike people as an odd thing that you are wandering around their home? Well this guy thinks so!
Keep your eyes open as you explore Tyria. There are so many little gems that are right there in the open that add to the enjoyment of the game.
See you in Tyria!
