Talk:Racial sympathy

Jump to navigationJump to search


Again, I think pages like these are unnecessary. The races contained in this article could just be mentioned in the biography article under a section for this question.-- Shew 01:10, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

So someone does agree with me! (btw, I started a discussion here so that it isn't all over the place). -- Konig/talk 03:45, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Option for all races[edit]

"Racial sympathy is one of the background options available for all races." --> It wasn't available as a background option at the demo. Someone asked Eric and he explained that they removed it from the biography and added it as an in-game decision.source -- 22:13, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I added {{verify}} not because I am disputing the claim, but because a more official source would be better. --Riddle 23:28, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. I tried to find the Q&A video, but didn't find it. Only the August 21 one is on YouTube. I saw it in the livestream, though, and the informations are accurate. Maybe they'll release the game soon enough so that we can confirm by ourselves. xP -- 10:37, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
is this like u wont attack them or sumthin?--Icyyy Blue User IcyyyBlue Elementalist Blue.png 16:25, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
We don't know yet, I think. I know that some Hylek, for instance, are supposed to be hostile, and some are not. It's possible that this will make it possible to negotiate with the hostile ones? Or it'll affect what happens in your personal story? Or maybe you'll just get a discount at Hylek merchants? Maybe some Hylek will show up in your home instance? But we just don't know yet. -- 21:47, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Skritt: popular, much?[edit]

"humans and the sylvari, are more willing to talk to the skritt and make alliances (link, click me)"

So, more than likely, that's humans as well. Three races out of five, maybe even four out of five! These guys must be damn cute... User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 09:37, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I blame it on them being all over the place. - Infinite - talk 11:01, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

And why are you calling me a Bookah, dim-witted cross-eyed! Calling the great Ucco a Bookah, the nerve! - Infinite - talk 11:34, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

from This competitiveness (and assumed superiority) extends to other races as well. Some are viewed as potential resources, like the alchemically advanced hylek or the dredge with their sonic technologies. Others are potential employees, like the humans or sylvari. And some are treated as pests to be eliminated, such as the rodent-like skritt, who the asura know all too well from their time underground. So we can assume hylek and dredge for the asura --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

While it is a logical conclusion, we cannot document it until it is confirmed by ArenaNet. Aqua (T|C) 17:17, 22 May 2012 (UTC)


Are racial sympathies still up-to-date or were they cancelled during the development process? Gnarf 09:36, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Race exclusivity[edit]

I play a norn and played with my friends who use sylvari. They chose the quaggan, and I was able to continue the story with the quaggan missions. So only 3 races can be chosen but we can continue the story by playing with a group. Do you think we should add it to the trivia? - JohnMcKee 10:35, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
