    People love to make alts, and at the same time people enjoy variey. So in most cases people will play a character of each race within a game. However, there is always one race that people tend to shun. It seems everyone has a specific race they can't stand for whatever reason, whether it be graphics or lore. This race will be chosen last, or not at all.

    For me that race is the Draken. I just can't get past those goofy goat horns. They look like some kind of cartoon satyr (Which I also don't like).


    My favorite race is a bit more tough to narrow down. I like Human Aurin and Cassian. My class will likely be spellslinger, regardless of what the other two are. Gun magic is an awesome concept you don't really see outside of a few anime.

    Aurin, simply because they're a creepy fetish race little better than the pedo girls in Tera.

    To be fair, Human should just be Cassian, seeing as how exile 'humans' are just exiled cassians.. but I digress.

    I only hate human's because they are the end-all be all do-it-all race.

    And i'm sick of that. We may be good at alot of things, but we shouldn't be allowed to do everything in an MMO.

    Probably the Aurin. I've held out hope for more variance, but it looks like they're all doomed to be a combination of cutesy and sexy that just doesn't work for me. Mechari don't interest me that much, but I don't dislike them, and I like most of the other races.

    Aurin. They're designed well, they're just designed for a kind of taste that holds no appeal to me whatsoever. I can imagine myself at least trying every other race in the game once.

    Aurin because they just look like humans with ears and aliens are unlikely to look like that.

    While I hate none of the races the one I like the least is the Draken for no particular reason just made a list and they wound up on the bottom. I'll also make use of this to like the Chua. I hated Gnomes in WoW but the Chua remind me of the 4 hamsters and 1 Guinea Pig I had as pets throughout my life so I can't hate them.

    Exactly my thoughts, I have never understood animal fetishes. Other than that Aurin aren't too bad.

    OT, Mechari only because they are too big to big a stalker imo. However I do like Mechari a lot but I wont be playing one as my main because I like smaller races for stealth classes (not too small).

    Granok. Very bland looking, dull, and uninteresting race. Close second could very well be the chua or the unrevealed Exiles race.

    On another note, it seems like the aurin are both an incredibly popular race and the most despised race as well. They must be the Justin Biebers of Wildstar! Draken are up in 3rd too. : /

    WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE MY PEOPLE!?!?!?
    What do most people mean when saying aurin are a fetish race? I hear that a lot and it makes me think there is this massive population of people sexually aroused by animals or characters that specifically have animalistic physical traits, implying that it is the animal characteristics in particular that are causing the arousal in these people. However, I'm not sure if I understand what most people mean by that sentiment.

    That's pretty much what people mean. There's a fairly prevalent internet subculture devoted to that fetish. I don't think the Aurin are actually intended to cater to it so much as people that go in for all the "kawaii neko" stuff (whatever overlap there may be between the two groups, they're separate entities), but that's how most people view it.

    I can understand that. Although it'll probably get annoying being called something that I'm not simply because I enjoy playing aurin, knowing how people have a tendency to generalize.

    Playing draken alts probably won't help my cause either. >_>

    Granok, I don't see me playing on of those. I know I will play an Alter on the dominion and I'm sure it will be a Human or a maybe the secret 4th race if cool enough

    I can understand why people came to that conclusion, though I don't think it's entirely a fair one. Even though I don't like the character model myself, I think it has a fairly broad appeal, and the people I know who are planning on playing the race are the sort of people who generally like cute, colorful things. Unlike some other races with a fetish stereotype, I think we'll end up seeing a decent number of women playing Aurin - and that includes both male and female characters.
