Man, I've been totally convinced to play as Asuran this whole time. After reading how much I follow how a Norn is for me in real life though, now I'm contemplating a switch. At least, contemplating who I want to play as first.

Norn make heroes proud!

There's a poll on guildwars2guru.com asking players about their least favorite race and asura is in the lead by a mile (norn are a distant second). This has pretty much solidified my choice to play asura.

@Apakal Asurans are really the top race right now? Wow... I thought I was the only person that liked small races!

@Kozuu

The poll I'm referring to is for "LEAST favorite race" so if you want to think about it the other way around, asurans are in last place.

I always like being at least a little unique, if not a little ironic. I figure since a lot of people don't like asurans, there won't be as many playing them (of course this is only a small poll).

I'm going to greatly enjoy playing an asuran warrior or guardian.

Is anyone really surprised though? While the asuran concept art looks awesome the only up-close look we've had of them in-game makes them look like the the result of a drunken hookup between ET and Gizmo that then proceeded to be beaten with the entire bloody Ugly Tree instead of just the stick.

I like em. They don't come off as stubborn and ignorant, instead they definitely have a reason behind their culture. I like the idea of sacrificing yourself so that your story can live on to continually inspire and strengthen your people. I'm looking forward to playing one and seeing what their world is like. :)

Anyone wanna go to the next moot?

An "r" right next to an "n" looks almost exactly like an "m".

So rn = m and Norn = Nom

Every time I see that word I have to do a doubletake and think of nom nom norn nom before I realize what happened. Then I go have a snack 'cause you just made me think about eating something tasty.

@Slayblaze

Meaningless observations are pretty nornal around here...

(...along with making horrible puns.)

Well Norn do like to Nom, 2 out of 3 spirit forms in GW 1 would agree!

"Norn Week" is a bit insulting I think. Surely the Norn are big enough that a mere week can not contain them. Make Norn week into Norn Month. That would be legendary, and fitting for ones such as the Norn.

I've set my eyes for Norns ever since they announced they are playable race. I love my Jora and can't wait for my Norn character to roll out!
