    WildStar has been on my radar for about a year now, but it really jumped to the forefront over the past month. Anyway, I was looking around through the official site and looking at all the races and I noticed something. On the Races page, the banner shows seven different races even though only six are known.

    Here's a direct link to the banner:

    The race in question is the 5th one, between the Draken and Mechari. Is that an already known race or an unannounced one?

    Bleh... I always love posting the "use the search" post, go figure I forget to do that. Haha!

    Anyway, thanks for the info. I can see how it could be an Aurin, though to me it still doesn't look like one. It looks like a cat more than a rabbit to me. Oh well. Cheers!

    Actually, Aurins aren't just bunnies :D They can have mouse ears, cat ears, bat wings (I think). :D

    Ah ha! Please allow me to direct you to yet another thread! ;D

    http://wildstar-central.com/index.php?threads/image-of-all-known-aurin-ear-variations.1587/ <- Compilation of all known Aurin ear variations.

    Not all Aurins are bunny-people. This has been confirmed by Carbine, and we have been gathering info on what other styles of ears there are. There also seems to be variation in their tails, but that's a bit more difficult to see in the screens they've provided! The fellow in the banner art (and that is a male Aurin, so there's that difference too), could very well be a more feline-inspired one!

    I guess that would make sense, their profile says their forest dwellers. So it's only natural they take on characteristics of more animals then just the bunny ears and long tail that I've seen pictures of most often.

    Yea, we've only seen the bunny variation since Liara (the one from the Meet the Aurin interview) has bunny ears. There are screenshots of what the other ear variations look like but most people see Liara and think all Aurin must be bunnies.

    Though, I'm still curious, there's a screenshot floating around that shows a Male Aurin is shorter than a Female Aurin. I'm curious if that is actually the case or if the game's height sliders actually allow that much difference.

    Nightsong: I'm afraid that information is unknown! Until we either get more screens of male and female Aurin together, get access to the character creator, or asks about it at next Arkship, we can only speculate!

    I think the male Aurin screenshot thing, was an NPC female Aurin & a Player male Aurin...
    Some games scales their NPCs bigger, i wonder why o:

    Thats just my guess!
