This is a typical question of every MMorpg, and I won't make a exception in this one.

So, which one you like the most in Blade and Soul. (Male or Female), and why? Now you got a chance to use little larger comments about the question than before. Let me show you...


My answer:

I like a Gon males the most, because basicaly they look strong and fearsome. Their brown skin just attracts me for some reason I don't know. Maybe it is, because of the movies I have watched, and the games I have played. They just bring the right feel around them.

Male is my choise for a simple reason which I kinda feel wrong about, but hear me out, will ya?

I like the idea for (myself) that I always make a male in every MMorpg, because I am myself a male. I feel that I am cheating someone or something if I make female. But don't get me wrong. I don't think that it is a craim or a bad thing for you to do, if you guys want to make a female. Go for it, I don't judge. This thing is just for me for some reason.

But for the first time in my MMorpg life, I face the ultimate beauty in Blade and soul where everything is cool and beautiful looking. From charachters to the ground details.

Female charachters looks sexy or cute. Male charachters look strong or cool. It is really hard for me to decide yet. Again I say it: "I can't decide for sure, before I am facing the charachter creation in game by the time I have bought the game."

Looking deadly sexy is new for me in MMorpg, because I think that Blade and soul is the only game so far who have succesfuly made that possible, thanks to their high graphics and model design. I like it.

Looking extremly cute is not so new, but once again Blade and Soul beats every other game in this model design and that's why it is kinda new for me. Tera online has cute popori race which is the most cute race ever seen. But I like Lyn race as my new fafourite cute race. So also I like looking cute in game. But once again it seems that I am cheating someone or something.

Looking strong is not new for me at all. That must be the best model design, that any game can do, thanks for the great armors and weapons they carry with them. But again I say it: "Blade and soul" beats every other game in this too." But I have been looking strong in so many MMorpg, that it would be a great chance for a change now.

Looking cool is my most fafourite. And Blade and Soul gives a great opportunity to make a cool looking charachter, because you can't say anything else about all the charachters than: "Cool!!" When you see them, am I right?

I think my comment fell off from the subject just a little, but that's okay. Isn't it?

Everything is okay when someones as cool as you are! :big_smile:

I chose female even though I am a male because I have always thought powerful females were more kick-ass than powerful males. I also make female characters for the 'gifting' benefits. Fact is, one way of showing that a guy likes a girl is to buy them a gift, especially in a MMO where more intimate ways are impossible. Eventually a guy will fall for me and the only way that he can show his affection is through gifts. I know some call it rude and I probably just lost some kudos, but in my eyes, it's a dog-eat-dog world and i'll do whatever it takes to get ahead.

Whether my babe' would be [u]Gon[/u], [u]Kun[/u], or [u]Jin[/u], I am not sure. The [u]Kun[/u] are stalky so it most-likely will not be them. The [u]Lyn[/u] just isn't my style, I'm sure you understand, so it will not be them. The [u]Gon[/u] are tall and strong which will give my [u]Destroyer[/u] the Intimidating aura I am looking for, but the thought of a smaller guy, the [u]Jin[/u], wielding such a large axe, is also relatively intimidating. I will most likely make up my mind at the character creation screen. :big_smile:

I pick female because I am in fact a female. As a person who plays a large amount of games, I appreciate all moments where I can actually play as a female.

Knowing who makes the art for blade and soul, it's obvious, for me, that I'll choos female.
Besides, this is sort of a habit from Diablo 1\2 days where I played Rogue\Assassin.

I agree with you BladeAndSoulMaster, but still, I'm going to create a male character. That's what I have already decided about character creation. I don't know, it just feels more naturally, if I run around with a character that has the same gender as me. But since I'm going for Lyn...I suppose it's hard to tell which Lyn is male or female so.... :big_smile:

Although I like the female character designs, I'm making a male character because I'm male and I usually play as male characters.

If I make a female alt, though, I'll probably go with a female Gon (sexy amazon giant FTW).

I think it is pretty easy to figure out the gender of Lyn. At least this far it have been easy. Many of them have been a female so far, but I have seen one male Lyn with a huge mustache.

Hmm....you're right, but look at this:

I thought the right Lyn is female, but Manes says, it's male! Since there's not that many pictures or designs of Lyn's, I don't know if it's true or not. XD

It'll be female. Mainly because most games have male characters.
There's so much unexplored potential in v-games when it comes to lead female characters

Let's face it, besides Nariko from Heavenly Sword and Bayonetta there haven't been that many great lead female characters :confuse:

You can really create original and very creative female designs
One thing which always happens with the male characters is that they tend to look the same as everyone else.
With female characters you can really create an unique avatar

Though I will also make a male character if I have the time to do so. The male designs in this game are very distinctive.

I'm still wavering back and forth on my decision on what to play in Blade and Soul in terms of gender, I've had both female and male characters, although with my mains I've always had a tendency to roll Male characters, with the exclusion of Aion and my female Gladiator.

Stylistically I'd say that the female 'look' I've seen so far over the different races seems to be the more interesting one, don't get me wrong some of the male attire is impressive but I've also seen some male outfits which look really awkward and not very well thought out, whilst practically all the female clothing seems to of been crafted to perfection.

I think one thing on the Blade and Soul trailer that really drives me to want to roll female is this lady ...

I will play as a male character for obvious reasons and because when I play with a female character things usually work way too well for my taste. That, or I roleplay as a girl too well... :huh:

Aaaanyway, my choice is male because I prefer to roleplay as a male and be more myself than roleplay as girl.

I'll be playing a female character.

I like to role play with them, you know, to level up those charisma skills for the ladies. They don't really respond to me though, not all of the time at least.

I'm going to have to go with a male character, just because i am male. But without female characters, how could we have a good game? Balance of genders is always good, never too much females or males, it's always nice to have a mix. I don't think it's better or worse to play as a female or male, except for the fact that females are kind of uh...attractive (again, I'm a guy :D.) So i'm just going to stick to my gender and be a kickass guy, even though there is some appeal to a strong female warrior.

when I started with PSO ep1&2 I chose a RAmarl, female gunner because of the stats. Eventual that character had a story to it and became more fleshed out and for just about every game I play I attempt to recreate that character. Plus being a guy its nice to have something enjoyable to stare at while I'm playing the game for several hours on end.
