  • pibloktoq

    haircuts 3, 6, 9 and 12. wtf O.o

  • Suan

    Holy shit! Hairstyle 6 was the same one that I gave to my ele in Guild Wars 1! Back then it was my last character created [like 6 months before GW2, my main was Dervish] Right now Elementalist is my main and they do give us a complete transformation kit with deluxe edition [both looks and name change] so I might change it just for the nostalgia sake.. hm..

    btw, some people say that this hairstyles and faces can be created on new characters, no makeover kit exclusive. Need to check that one though.

    • Aria of the FENG

      they don’t have a star on the kit/appearance npc so I guess they’re not exclusive, no (also, they’re on the right of the list, exclusive stuff is on the left of the list)

  • aoede

    I really like hairstyle 3! 100% would spring for it if I had a human character.

  • Ani

    Finally, cultural diversity.

    • AD

      What diversity? They are all black hairstyles. Thats not diverse at all.

      • They meant Anet is adding some more faces that aren’t the same stuff we get currently, which is predominately European in origin. The hairstyles don’t have any say in the matter, anyone with thick hair can pull off any of those styles

        • Mei Ling

          had no idea that charr/asura/sylvari are euro scum

          still waiting on sayan hair for every race

  • Aria of the FENG

    faces 3 and 5 are not new

    • Anrui

      Neither is the 1st one

    • Thanks, I removed those. Let me know if you spot anymore old faces

  • Navi

    Only humans? ๐Ÿ™

    • Ani

      Just right now. When I came to this page, it only had hairstyles, it has since updated to have faces. They’re uploading, just slowly.

      • aoede

        Nope, Dulfy and others have confirmed that it’s human only across the board.

        • Ani

          It didn’t say that when this was initially uploaded. It has since updated to say that, so we would not have known when these comments were written. It’s a shame.

    • Suan

      I mean the expansion is about humans and our god that went rouge. And it’s about people of Elona so they need a lot of new faces and hairstyles for them.

      • Taiwan Wolf

        Missed opportunity on giving Sylvari literal cornrows. .-.

      • MagisterXII

        He went red, must be all that fire.

  • Talindra

    The Elonan woman are beyond hideous, that makes me feel ashamed and uncomfortable. Also, putting an afro on a white person is cultural appropriation. And where are the separate bathrooms for gender fluid necromancers? Obviously the map needs to mosque as well. So many issues.

    • Answerer

      That’s probably because Dulfy used Caucasian skins. I’m sure it’ll look a lot better in Ebon, Nubra or Negro skin

      • aoede

        It’s a troll.

        • Answerer

          Well I like the mosque idea. It goes with the desert theme.

          • 12345678

            Holy shit it does not if you know any of this game’s lore. No.

  • Jasmine Lock

    More for Asura would have been nice.

    • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

      Facial hair for Asura would have been REALLY nice. I hope some of these hairstyles can be use by Norns, And the third female face is giving me some strong Rhianna vibes.

  • Karim

    Shame that they didn’t introduce a Muslim-style beard. (A full beard but with the upper lip/mustache zone kept clean-shaven)

    Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) says: “Trim closely the moustache, and let the beard flow (Grow).” – Narrated Ibn Umar (R.A.) in Muslim, Hadith no. 498

    Would really appreciate if they would add it now that we’re going to the desert.

    • Mr. Principal

      Nop.. Sorry.. The Prophet didn’t say that.. That’s a fake Hadith..
      And we don’t want this stupid Muslim-Brotherhood style crap in this game..!

    • Talindra

      How about all the female characters have to wear hijabs and nothing else? C’mon man stand up for your beliefs!!

  • Daaw Daw

    those NEW FACES? ARE WE BIOWARE NOW ? :DDD
    also expresion on that femhum describese those new hairstyles perfectly.

    • Charlie Dominguez

      Not racist, but some of those faces work better for humans with darker skin tones.

      • Runose

        Not really racist, since darker skinned characters are what the faces were made for.

      • Shaggy

        yea all the black characters have always looked really weird with the ‘standard’ faces

  • cheese

    This makes me happy, love the ethnic hair textures!

  • Sevenkitten

    That faces the worst faces what i saw before.. ๐Ÿ™ The basic games in gw2 way much better lol

  • Alot

    Facial Hair 2. Approve greatly. On other people.

    • Kevin Flanagan

      I might like it better with some jewelry on it.

  • we wuz

    We wuz hairstyles and shit

  • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

    Face number 4 is Hot Felon, am I right?

  • AD

    I dont want to sound racist, but why 99% of the hairstyles are based on africanamericans?

    • Taiwan Wolf

      Because Elona is basically Africa in GW world.

      • AD

        Ok, thanks for the answer I guess.

        • RKC

          May aswell give you a head ups. Should Anet release another expansion that venture into Canthan and release new faces that are Asian looking, Canthan is all Asian related theme.

      • writinwater

        Shame, that this stuff does basically nothing for me. Everything I have seen from the art for the new expansion is…….so underwhelming it physcially hurts. They definitely picked the wrong continent with Elona. At least financially, I will go for basic edition after seeing this

    • Meow

      It is because the expansion travels to the Crystal Desert (parts of which are in Elona). In the original Guild Wars- the three campaigns were based off different continents in the real world: Prophecies- Europe, Cantha- Asia, Elona-Africa. The characters from each of these campains looked like the people from these continents. Since the Crystal Desert is in Elona, the new hairstyles will be reflective of this geographic region (Africa).

      Plus I am LIVING for human female hairstyle #6! I will buy the expansion just for that!

      • Daaw Daw

        you dont have to,its allready in the game.

    • Talindra

      You aren’t racist. Don’t be ashamed to express your thoughts. If someone challenges your intentions, ignore them.

      • ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†

        Also, it’s not racist bc it’s a fairly innocuous question; especially if someone’s not familiar with the lore of Elona/GW1’s expansion of Nightfall.

    • SURINAM

      african “Americans” ?? lol

  • kazerniel

    It feels a bit tone-deaf to model these faces and hairs on light skinned blond models D:

    • writinwater

      It feels quite ok. Because it shops pretty well how little you can probably do with these faces if you do NOT go for a sub-saharan terran Africa style

      • kazerniel

        The article says these are from Elonian NPCs, so it’s kind of implied that most of them would be black.

    • burntorangenavyblue

      SMH, just think a little harder…

      Background is black….thiinnnk

      • kazerniel

        ok, that’s a good point.
        no need for the condescending language though

        • burntorangenavyblue

          You throwing out “tone-deaf” assumption is you being ignorant. Not everything is about race.

    • Talindra

      I knew one of you snowflakes would have an issue with this. Aren’t you bothered that every character is either male or female?

      • Copper Wiley

        If there were an option to have nonbinary options? yeah I’d be annoyed and then go on with my life, as usual when anybody ignores that we exist or uses us for some pissing contest on the internet.

        But since this content comes from a new area that has predominately dark-skinned people, and that the hairstyles are so that people could make characters with greater diversity, leaving it out WAS a bit tone deaf.

        But op didn’t even say it rudely. They commented that it was “a bit” off to use light-skinned models, and the person who made the article went “oops! updated that” and op thanked them.

        Like what are you angry at, two people being polite at each other?

        • Talindra

          Nothing to do with these conversations at all. Its the bigger picture of how social justice is ruining the world. Some people can only see the different skin colors and have to point out how everything in the world is racist.

          • Copper Wiley

            Sorry, I don’t agree. With current politics and the state of the sheer number of people who get their kicks out of trashing anyone who isn’t a white, cisgendered dude, I think we need people doing “social justice” more than ever.

            “social justice” merely being a fancy phrase for “common effing decency to other people”.

    • I updated the faces to be darker colored. Hope that helps

      • kazerniel

        Thank you!

      • Aria of the FENG

        yes, much better now, thank you!!

      • Caedes

        It wasn’t “tone deaf” it was you providing a quick service and you just so happened to use the first skin color to pop up.

  • Scutilla

    Back before HoT when I first heard people talking about how there wouldn’t be any new races because of the modeling work, I thought it would be neat to let people roll a Canthan or Elonian human, with a different personal story but the same base model. I guess being able to makeover your character as one is the next best thing.

    Unfortunately I was really hoping the other races would get some love too, especially since I discovered all the male charr faces clip with basically all headgear. I like my female human’s look too much to change, and while my male is in the market for a more suitable look, cornrows aren’t it.

  • Tomas X

    The last beard is kind os isis ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Krystal S. S.

    Hair Style 4 and 13 for females.. and for the male maybe the 6th one for Hair Style, as for the Facial Hairs, I only like the 1st one. The 4th is used by Balthazar which is nice that they put it in as an option.

  • I updated the faces to be more darker, hopefully these work better ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Steve

      Someone will still be offended.

      • ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†

        Nothing to do with being offended but everything to do with they are literally faces/hair designed with Elonian (read: African) ethnicity in mind, and it just looks really bizarre on pale-skinned characters and probably isn’t the best way to showcase it.

        Dissent is not “being offended” or “triggered” or whatever the hell stupid buzzword people like to whine out each time someone encounters a different opinion.

        • Steve

          I’m sorry if I offended you.

      • RKC

        Look above for ototoxin,

    • Caedes

      What a shame, catering to the mewling masses about skin color in a fantasy MMORPG.

      • Andy C

        what a shame… catering to crying white boys who want to model Elonian hairstyles on white characters lol.. stop white washing, Tyria is a mixed world and it is ok to display ELONIAN hairstyles on ELONIAN characters without having to hear you whine about it..the game has been out for almost 5 years.. half a decade.. and when adding diverse cultural features to the game people like you refuse to understand it is important to people….it is a fantasy MMORPG sure… so why do you feel the need to force white characters in ELONIAN cultures?? even in fantasy Elona is an isolated nation so why would a random white character be rocking an Elonian hairstyle?! lol in reality it doesnt make sense and in the fantasy MMORPG setting and storyline it doesnt make sense. you’re a clown Caedes… a clown!

  • Zenith

    That male hairstyle 14, wtf lol

    • Trillium

      gotta cater to people with super-clashing rainbow armor too

    • Leo Panthera

      Most of these are inspired by actual hairstyles. This one was common for males in acient Egypt.

    • Pedofilnรฝ faลกista Smotana

      The “WE WUZ KANGZ” hairstyle. Google Shakka Ahmose.

  • flower
    • Raven

      Foxy Cleopatra! xD

    • Mr. Principal

      Looks like the chick from Moby’s “Disco Lies” ..! xD

  • ototoxin

    great post, but dulfy really should have previewed the new hairs on a dark skinned character. they’re meant for PoC, not white characters

    • Answerer

      Are albinos racist now?
      (jk)

    • The Flying Headsman

      And here is the snowflake, go be offended at nothing somewhere else. The hairstyles are meant for anyone who wants to use it and above all it’s fantasy, stop trying to bring your racist ideologies that blacks can only have certain things and others don’t.

      • griffin

        “It’s Fantasy”– the argument dudebros like you always shut down over whenever someone tries to justify POC in any pseudo-historical fantasy setting. These are Elonian NPC hairstyles and should be modeled on Elonian characters. Yeah, you can go ahead and wear them on whoever you want in game, but it’s not going to showcase the hairstyles if you’re putting them on a white model– it just looks strange. You can’t do a lot of these styles with white hair.
        PS: Reverse racism isn’t real.

        • The Flying Headsman

          Other than your completely baseless assumptions and trolling that “reverse racism” (aka normal racism) isn’t real, it is fine to say that the faces and hairstyles might show better when shown on a black or brown character. This however can be said normally like I just did or it can have racist implications by saying they’re ONLY meant for blacks and not remotely for whites.

          • Ok everyone, picture this. One day a person of color sees this game and views a character that is Caucasian with a ornate braided hairstyle. Now this person knows nothing about this game but is clearly offended by this misappropriation. What if they complain? I understand that this is fantasy, but humans are taking from reality; when you install something from reality within a fantasy realm, you need to stick truly to what the human condition is. Currently , it is impossible for a Caucasian person to do their hairstyles like this because your hair is too oily.

            Again, Im not bringing racism into this conversation, just the fact that this is impossible to do. I know its fantasy, but humans are real. This is the first time they have done this within the GW franchises. Since Elona is based off of African Descent, shouldn’t they just stick to the source material. This is why I dont have a human character in GW2. Misappropriation is the key word here.

            • 12345678

              Then their complaints will be laughed at. “Appropriation” is a term invented by racists who think cultures should be separated. And that’s a very very racist mindset.

              • No…. Misappropriation is a word used when, a company (Arenanet) is embezzling forms of other cultures to make money incorrectly. I dont think cultures should be separated, but I do believe that you should respect the ancestry of another culture. The post clearly represents that embezzlement; Im not saying that Caucasian people will rock some twist in the their hairstyle (someone will try it, it always happens) but not knowing or understanding the history behind what twist are is not cool.

                This is not a history lesson ok, Im just trying to help arenanet from a black person’s point of view. I still love the game; Im just having a conversation online. If you decide to wear your hair the Elonian way and your character is not a person of color, you might catch some heat from someone.

              • The Flying Headsman

                Good thing no one owns rights to what someone does with their hair. It’s not appropriation or racist in any way, rather if you think it is you’re the racist one. Also if they only wanted to make money off of it they’d make it make-over kit exclusive, which it isn’t.

                Also stop implying these hair styles are impossible for anyone that isn’t black, it’s delusional and no one will catch heat for having a hairstyle that’s typically associated with other races. If the one off snowflake does get triggered and starts harassing others for their ideologies they love to force on people then it’s a fast report to anet and that will be that.

              • Hey,

                Again, I even said in my original post that this conversation shouldn’t be about what’s racist. Again, we might only see people of color dawning these hairstyles.

                All Im saying is that I really hope that others are respectful of the heritage and history that comes with those hairstyles. And its not delusional to think that white people can not rock these hairstyles; I saw a new post where I saw a caucasian person with a similar hairstyle. In my experience, these hairstyles on Caucasian hair only last a couple hours; on black hair these hairstyles can last for weeks. Yes its possible, but not realistic. Lets reverse that; I will never have straight long hair, its not possible with my genetic makeup, no matter how many times I perm my hair.

                I actually love that I can now create a human character that looks like me. I just can not stand that I could possibly see the same hairstyle on a person that is Caucasian; not even 20 years ago, ethnic hair was nappy, ugly, and grotesque. Now we want ethnic hair on everything; the American Melting pot.

              • The Flying Headsman

                And in my experience it is possible for white people to have a type of hair that allows these hairstyles but regardless of that it’s not needed to be respectful of, that’s the entire point of these comments here. That it isn’t needed to say this needs to go on black and not white because it isn’t allowed/respectful but that you can ask it in a different way that doesn’t imply real life racist problems like saying these hairstyles would likely show better on brown or black characters in which I would agree, they do.

                But instead it was made purely about race which is the thing I have a problem with since if anything, people should be happy if someone decides to participate in their culture and accept that things aren’t exclusive to them.

              • Mr or Ms The Flying Headsman,

                This conversation is no longer about the game, LOL.

                If you want to participate, learn about the history of people of color, learn about the struggles of that group, and teach others that are naive about that culture. Yes, braids are not exclusive to us; but they can’t be re-branded by another culture and monetized. Thats the part that is not cool.

                If you want to participate, start here. https://www.buzzfeed.com/essencegant/pictures-of-cornrows-for-black-girls?utm_term=.lvrXNXdBR#.giZVqV2ZA

              • The Flying Headsman

                No thanks I’m not taking part in the American SJW culture, it seems to be damaging relations more than it is improving them rather than here in my country where no one really cares about that stuff nor cares about people giving their own twist to things of another culture as long as it isn’t being ridiculed or has a complete loss of meaning. Also this entire chain wasn’t about the game from the start but about the way OP said things so I don’t know why you’re bringing that up. And if with the monetization you meant these particular faces/hair then it isn’t since theyre offered in the base set of options for no extra cost.

                On a side note I wouldn’t call buzzfeed of all things a reliable source of info for anything other than pandering to certain agendas/providing clickbait.

        • Alot

          Racism is a real and complex issue. I do find that there is an understanding gap between identifying situations which could be or unintentionally become racist (easy) and calling them out without resorting to being racist oneself (hard).

          Commenting on a lack of representation (and recognition) of not-white-people is media content is accurate. Then going on to dictate what white people should and shouldn’t look like, in the same bloody paragraph, leaves me with the impression that the writer doesn’t understand the moral equivalency hes claiming to vouch for.

          So while I agree that Elonian hairstyes would be most accurately modeled on Elonion faces, it is in spite of the laughable contradictions proposed by griffin’s views,, not in any way because of them -.-

    • PJ

      Wow… there’s my daily dose of cringe

    • MagisterXII

      I get what you mean and agree, but you could have phrased that better, It’s true what you say but “they’re meant for PoC, not white characters” just sounds offensive and inaccurate. Saying that the hair designs were created with dark skinned/black people in mind and are meant to be an accurate representation for them, but are certainly for everyone makes a lot more sense.

      • Andy C

        lol black people have to play white mains or just “dark skinned” white people in video games for decades with styles that are CLEARLY not for us, but when the roles are flipped then we cant say that LITERAL designs for black characters (Elonians) without someone boo hooing… as a black gamer you dont know how much it means to me to experience black characters in a land of black people on an MMO… but I guess I can’t enjoy it without worrying about offending the same racist white gamers that shout the n word on map chat and freely express themselves.

    • RKC

      Dude, she just preview and posted the image asap then to be repersented accurate.

      Also are you happy now that she HAD to corrected it for you???

    • Talindra

      A Snowflake triumphs again!

      An irrelevant victory, and you’ll never win a relevant one, but still congrats :)))))

  • Male Face #9 is totally badass

  • Darkye Rhiadra

    Yay! I don’t like any of the new faces and hair styles. Happy because now I can avoid spending money on 10 makeover kits…
    On the other side, I still hope that someday… within my life time, Anet will add more faces that are not 50+ y.o.

  • ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’†

    Now if only they’d do a big Afro-Pompadour hair, I can finally play as Janelle Monaรฉ wielding a greatsword made of rainbows riding a giant bunny.

    • Tarragon

      I didn’t even know how much I wanted this until now.

    • Lost Valyrian

      lol, nice.

    • EvilStepQueen

      OH. MY. GODS. If that ever happens that would be amazing!! I have always loved her hair and her 50’s style. (I realize she’s changed it up now, but I like being one step behind pop culture lol)

    • Rick C

      I have a t-shirt like that, only it’s a cat riding a unicorn.

  • SURINAM

    Anyone doing a kodak black cosplay with Hairstyle 8.

  • Celty-san

    any new hair and faces for other races?

  • griffin

    Any reason all these hairstyles are being modeled by the pastiest of people?

    • Blafipoasf

      Any reason you give a single damn? Dulfy always had pale characters, fuck you.

      • Andy C

        these are Elonian hair styles though, why wouldnt they be styled on Elonian characters? I mean… it should be obvious…

  • Vincent Guiang

    I was excited about all this but then I realized…..Im a plant

    • Turats

      lmao…. yep, we had our turn last expansion.

  • Ralph Ellison

    Why TF can’t females have beards? did Anet just assume my gender ?

  • ZodInGeneral

    Love the beards! goes great on my pirate! BUt…. Since we are going to the desert.. does this mean Asura gets Sandslash Hair?? ๐Ÿ˜› (would be awesome!) : http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-JX5ZUluGmAQ/Vb5D6BQDlaI/AAAAAAAABLs/niYHejYiDMQ/s1600/one_layer_sandslash_by_joltik92-d66ga0m.png

  • kelgo13

    Just wait someone will be upset when they see a blue eyed Elonian.

    • Kevin

      You also just offended someone by suggesting that.

      • kelgo13

        Paragons in the first game were known for having blue eyes …for those that didn’t know it.

  • MissQ

    Sooooo, all discussion about skin color and weather or not the pictures above or comment someone posted is rude, racist, inconsiderate etc aside (lol, take a chil pill peeps)
    Is it me or is the hair in the female Hairstyle 14 too long? I love the look of it <3 ! but why until below the chin? ๐Ÿ™ It makes every face/head look a tad weird and long to me… she needs a bit of a cut there ;] Or is this just my personal issue? I can't ' unsee' it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Female afro is amazing, i wish i could use it on my Norn Ranger

    #9…Cersi?

    I realize it’s supposed to be a shorn afro, but if you have seen the recent Game of Thrones Season Trailer, her hair looks SO like #9, she’s just missing the crown.

    I LOVE how real SOME of the new hairs look, and I am jonsing for when I can log in and give my WOC/POC Daredevil the makeover she deserves!!! Mayhaps I’ll reply later, showing a Before and After?

    Dulfy? Keep up the great work! Thank you! โ™ก

    Hairstyle 6 is definitely in the “just give me that bagels glued to my head style fam”

  • These hairstyles are weird; this is gonna get offensive really fast.

    • Talindra

      The irony is that by calling them weird you just offended someone.

      • Sorry, I wasn’t descriptive enough. Let me elaborate; this post with Caucasian people wearing hairstyles based on Black African Descent is weird (makes me feel odd). Im really glad that Dulfy did this because it illuminated that this is possible in game.

        • Chad Germann

          why does it mater its a game where people can mix and match looks, people will do what they want with there characters in GW2 and its not going to hurt anyone in the real world.

        • Lex

          If you want to get technical everyone originated in Africa and there are white people with that hair texture… very few compared to the larger white population but they exist.

  • Turats

    wait, are these available now if you pre-order?

  • Pocohantas

    I’m a Native American hermaphrodite and feel very underrepresented in this game.

    • Mr Orange Chicken

      Not like east Asians are represented better. In GW1 Cantha, Asia is a country.

  • Ayo Ogunrinola

    I knew this would trigger a lot of the negative and borderline political banter below. Goes with the territory. I love all the updates, been waiting for Elona themes since launch. I’ll pour out some liquor for the ppl complaining that there’s nothing here for them (I can’t imaaaaagiiineee). Otherwise, thanks Dulfy! Gotta dust the ol PC off and jump back in to gw2. Exciting ๐Ÿ˜„

      • Rick C

        Will Andy G be along shortly to tell us he knows you’re telling the truth because he knows you’re future Andy C, and he’s future you?

        • Andy F

          Andy G is on vacation.

      • Andy C

        Spoken like a true middle aged loser. You are so edgy and cool with your comments on the internet.

        • Andy H

          You are an angry person with little control over your emotions. Uneducated, poor, come from a broken family, probably been to jail. You smoke pot and feel hopeless. So for a brief moment on the internet you can pretend to feel better than others.

          • Ayo Ogunrinola

            Actually it looked like his response was to weirdos (like you) on here angry and emotional on anything remotely attributed to “black ppl”. But Elona is original lore. Your random insults are laughable. Luckily morons, too, can enjoy Elona and the new content.

            • Andy E

              Actually I’m crazy for black women and can’t wait to make a new character. Haven’t decided on the hair yet! I’m well under middle aged, Hispanic, and happy. Unfortunately I enjoy getting a rise out of angry millennials. Its something I’m working on…

              • Ayo Ogunrinola

                lol y u trolling bro, im glad you’ll be enjoying. Party with me if you ever see a “Dhalik” running around ๐Ÿ™‚

              • Andy L(ol)

                I’ll keep my eyes open :))

    • Rick C

      Nope. It’s really a shame you can’t just be happy there’s more designs.

  • Andy C

    racist white nerds would prefer that black characters only have those stupid fucking Afros or dreadlocks…. up until now as a black a male character you only had a choice of TWO hairstyles on this game. putting up with the male white dominated gaming community in the US having to hear people shout the N word on map chat all day long on pretty much every game with online play.. this means a lot to people like me to have a more realistic view of ourselves rather than always having to wear afros and stupid shit in every game you play or have straight hair that was designed for white characters…. the very same people that watch Friends and don’t question why there are no black people in New York or the same people that watch Sigourney Weaver black an Egyptian queen lol… the gaming community is largely exclusivist to others who arent the standard white male and when we get to see something a bit different we see a mass upheavel and salty salty tears come pouring down your pimpled faces.. yall can rage all you want, I am happy as shit about this.. even though we have to see a white character here rock Elonian hairstyles… but I guess we can’t have it all right?

    • Andy D

      Dear snowflake,

      Tl;dr.

    • Nick Peterson

      its a video game you no that right

    • 12354546

      All the complaints about these new hair options I’ve seen were from black people and SJWs though.

      • Leah

        really? because all I see is black people being happy that they can now have a character that actualy looks like them and pointing at other companies, going see? see? THAT’S the way to do it. in fact, dulfy wasn’t even the first place I first saw this hear, but rather I saw it on tumblr and it was nothing but praise from black people and so-called sjw.

        • Leah

          Stop huffing already.

          • Leah

            get of anon, babe, and say it again. are are you too cowardly

            • Leah

              Take a pill, snowflake. I’m not creating an account just to put up a picture of some fatty.

              • Leah

                yep. cowardly little child, hiding behind your screen. aren’t you a precious little stinker, thinking you are a cool one. how adorable.

              • Curious George

                No offense, but are you not also hiding behind a screen? Anyway, looks like you’ve won an internet victory here with your witty compliment-insult combos.

              • Leah

                I’m not the one posting as anon here.

    • Lex

      I literally don’t bother playing black characters most of the time because of the hairstyles and racist nerds who love to spam slurs at you if you’re even a little brown in games. Easier to enjoy the game if they think you’re white or an alien creature. Sad.

    GW2 negro edition

    My only complaint is that..wtf where is afro for male – that big afro should’ve been for both; would’ve been cool to have big male afro with that long strip beard on norn.

    • Andy C

    • The Wanderer

      “GW2 negro edition” Sounds to me like you thought black people never existed in the world of Guild Wars and Arenanet just recently added them, well I hate(love) to be the bearer of bad news, but they’ve always existed in Guild Wars. I’m so sorry(not) that black people existing offends you so much. I would recommend you play Guild Wars:Nightfall but I’m sure you’ll start flipping out and foaming at the mouth the moment you play.

      • Lolowned

        lol you got triggered by that comment, the person was probably fishing for tards like you, snowflakes – gotta love easy triggering

        • The Wanderer

          “tards” “triggered” “snowflakes” *yawn* Those words are so played out, time to get some originality, Mr. Guest.

          • Futa Futa

            TBH I prefer his unoriginality over yours: “Wow, some guy said the Spanish word for ‘black’, which American blacks preferred to be called half a century ago; better listen to that Pavlovian tick in my brain and cry racist!”

            Throw away your overused, meaningless tripe before you expect others to do so.

            • The Wanderer

              Amazing, out of all of the people in this comment section you could’ve replied to, you decide to cherrypick and reply to me. “TBH I prefer his unoriginality over yours” I bet you do, cause you use those same words and direct a lot of “overused, meaningless tripe” at certain groups of people so of course you know a thing or two about that.

              • Futa Futa

                Hey man, try actually saying something. It’d help get your message across.

            • Lex

              “Preferred to be called”.. you mean over n****er? How dense are you? Stop speaking on behalf of black people, idiot. No one wants to be called negro and the context that asshat used it in was meant to offend.

  • Dulfy see what you started. LMAO!!!!

  • Hailey

    Take a shot every time “”snowflake”” you guys are so boring that you see some very basic level inclusion as something to be upset about…. You can tell some research went into these designs (that’s a very ancient Egyptian looking male #10!) and it was extra cool of Anet to include these without a kit!

    • Can you show me a picture of what an Egyptian Male looks like? Not trying to troll, just testing your theory.

      • Hailey

        Sure!

        Check this out, particularly the far bottom image. There is a pretty active circle of conversation and study regarding the hair texture of ancient Egyptians. The man on the right is an Afar man, an ethnic group inhabiting the horn of Africa who regularly sport a hairstyle strikingly similar to what we see in ancient Egyptian art. Knowing the setting of Elona, it’s possible Anet was going for that iconic Egyptian look or was emulating something close to the Afar hairstyle in general. But either way I think it’s an interesting parallel!

        • Hailey

          Additionally here’s some further reading that might be of interest re: variations of ancient egyptian hair styles: http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/18730/

          • O you were talking about the hairstyle itself, not the person. I wish they would have just separated the hairstyles from the head. Actually thanks for posting these photos. Hopefully this will inspire folks to learn about the culture.

            • Hailey

              Oh yeah definitely! Should have been clearer in my comment, sorry! I thought it looked pretty odd for Dulfy to be previewing these hairstyles on super white models. I guess they probably default to that combo for hair previews…but I think it’s doing a genuine disservice to what these styles represent. ‘Here’s the new hairstyles from fantasy africa and also here’s a whole bunch of white models sporting them’ lol intentions aside that’s just not the best presentation.

              • Ayo Ogunrinola

                You get it. ๐Ÿ™‚

              • Lex

                Honestly just from a customization standpoint I was actually glad they did it that way only because it’s easier to see the details and textures. I didn’t immediately realize Anet finally added black hairstyles until I saw the textures and then I got excited. I think I made it all the way down to the afro puffs and then was like “Wait what?!” lol.

  • Leo Panthera

    I’m Malagasy (East African/ Austronesian mix) with French and Chinese origins so I’m actually pretty happy we can make uncommon (or maybe unrealistic) mixes of hairstyle/ face/ skin color as long as the INTENT wasn’t to be offensive. I mean it’s a FANTASY game.

    Anyway I don’t care much cause I only play Charr ๐Ÿ˜€

    Chill out people, yall are going to hell anyway B)

    • Andy C

      What does it matter what kind of game it is lol?

      • Leo Panthera

        Good question. Guess it doesnt in the end, just felt relevent.

    This is what will me make come back to the game, finally I can roleplay as a KANG.

      *yawn* This old line again? So bland and unoriginal, like you. Tell me, sport, is that all you got?

  • Answerer

    The faces looked fine here, but oh my god they’re terrible in-game. Both genders have like two faces that look cool, while the rest look like mashed potatoes.

    The hairstyles are really cool, though, but if you want a decent looking Elonian, just take a core face and make the lips and nose wide, much better than what anet made

  • kelgo13

    Finally Rick James!!! Its time for the bass guitar to go on sale. lol

    • hoodlum

      you should see the skins

  • Karri Alldridge

    what is the damn problem with different colored skin? are you all so childish that you cant see passed something that looks different than your own skin? get a grip, grow the hell up, and just play the damn game. its a good addition to the game, and if you dont like it, dont use the new looks! Its so easy!

    • Answerer

      Someone is offended by us being offended about non-offensive stuff, im so offended right now!!

      (A joke, of course,
      You shouldnt give tumblrs too much attention as it seems to be what they feed on)

      • Karri Alldridge

        yeah true, i guess i shouldnt honestly be surprised that people are trolling. this is the internet after all. its the few that take this so seriously that really grinds my gears lol

    • Ruth

      We’re at a point in history, albeit brief and pointless, where a segment of society feels that they’ll make enormous social changes by going online and pointing out everything that is potentially offensive. Eventually those people will get jobs and this feeble movement of social justice will end without fanfare.

      • Karri Alldridge

        i hope it does soon. i get it if there were some actual discrimination or some shit, but people are just ridiculous.

    Finally more faces and hairstyles which work well with dark skin tones.
    Creating a decent Elonian was pretty much impossible before.

    • Neo_Genesis

      Too bad the voice is still the same. ๐Ÿ™

      • Daniel Miranda

        Do you know if they plan on adding new voices?

        • Neo_Genesis

          I highly doubt it, there’s too many lines of dialog they’d have to record and I’d assume it’d cost way too much to make it worthwhile…

          They could always just add a pitch slider to the character creator so we could at least make the voices sound deeper or higher… That’s at least SOMETHING.

  • narg

    lol female 9 looks like Cersei ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Fred Garvin
  • SpiralCee

    Are female hairstyles 13 and 14 only available if you buy PoF? They’re not showing up on my hair style kit preview. ๐Ÿ™

    • Funnynel42

      I think these will release once the expansion is live…

  • Lex

    Holy crap. The timing is amazing. Right after Charlottesville(i know this was done way before that lol) they finally add black hair and faces to the game. Literally a black avatar patch lmao. Only took… way too long.

    • dindunuffin

      eww. you are disgusting

      • Lex

        Thanks. I see you are still following me around the internet. :3

    How dare they show white faces with black African hairstyles. They are misappropriating black culture!!! What next, basketballs & leather baseball caps worn at an angle?
