They remind me of Skaven from Warhammer. So I will gladly give them gifts.
Gifts of wholesale slaughter.

GW2 has some of the most original mobs and races I've ever seen, can't wait to see more.

So... the skritt are the opposite of humans in that way... skritt are dumb as individuals but get progressively smarter as they gather in larger groups, whereas individuals humans can be quite intelligent, but become increasingly dumb, almost zombie-like, as they gather in larger groups...

Taking bets on quest(s) involving finding a lone Skritt being all drooly and lop-eyed on his own and it being a trap. Or something.

"Skritt"? Ew. Skritt = step or crotch in Norwegian.

"Yeah, they got this new race in GW2, it's called Crotch!"

God... I want one as a pet...!
My mother hates rats and bats especially, so having a rat-bat-man as a bro would freak her the f*** out!!


Please let there be a mini-pet version of them!

@Tizmah
Official word is that closed beta will be this year for sure, and depending on how that goes they'll do open beta (which they plan to do very close to release, once the game is quite polished) and release. They've said they want very much to have it go live this year, and recent interviews/blog posts have talked about how excited they are about getting it finished and "finalizing" it, so take from that what you will. ;)

Nice to see that they aren't going the cliche route.

I know when I first encountered the Sithilid in WoW. my first thought was "Oh wow... Starship Troopers in fantasy... :-/"

They remind me of the rats in Planescape: Torment (man, I loved that game). In that game a groupd of undergroung rats could share one collective mind. But the GW2 version looks better.

But I admit that they also reminded me of Master Splinter from Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Not that it's a bad thing.
