I believe they called em barbers back then =D --Wolf 19:43, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Seems like a good idea to me as it does get boring to have the same hairstyle the whole game. I don't see how it would be a problem. --Michael the Perfectionist User-Michael the Perfectionist Signature.gif 22:53, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

i relay don't see why this cant be added to gw1.....75.172.47.75 22:53, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, you're not the one doing the coding, so you don't know whether hairstyle is a parameter that can be easily changed, or whether hair, along with other appearance aspects, are hard-coded into your character, designed to not be changed as easily as armor. Also, why did you indent so much? I could understand two indents, as there should have actually been one from the person above you, but still. --Chaiyo Kaldor talk contribs 22:59, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
sorry... but you don't know that info eather. 75.172.47.75 23:23, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
I never said I did, did I? I was just pointing out why it might not be able to be added. The point is that you don't know how much work it might cause for ANet staff, whether it's possible, or whether (worst case scenario) it would take away time from GW2. It would be nice to hear that sort of thing from Regina, though, but she has enough on her plate for this moment, what with the threats of lawsuits Sorry for nitpicking at the indent, by the way, sometimes that sort of thing catches my eye and doesn't let go. --Chaiyo Kaldor talk contribs 23:32, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

And if they do that there can be more hair style then what you can pick when u create ur character. And I think u should be able to have multi-color hairstyles. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:64.12.116.139 (talk).

There should be special hair colours that come at a price too, eg Ultima Online style :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 02:20, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Might then as well extend it to plastic surgery while at it. Even if its just for trying out new looks together with an armorset. An extra advantage (from the gw1 point of view) is that characters created at the start can take over the new appearances added in expansions (if any, of course). For the rest, if there are concerns with logics of plastic surgery in a 'medieval' world, I think the asura are quite capable and willing to experiment on it. --Tenshi Samshel 08:45, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

An implementation option could also be to give Lyssa a job, to allow a player to change his physical appearance. That would be a reasonable way of changing your hairstyle, face appearance and even gender, assuming programming allows these. --Tenshi Samshel 17:25, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

We should have it where each outpost might have different hairstyles you can get, like some that weren't avaliable when you created your character. Lord Snealon 18:17, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I like that idea too, but honestly, I just wish that they would put this in GW1. Whether or not Anet does do that, I'm sure it would find a great deal of acceptance in GW2. MASSIVE SUPPORT. Sinsgo QQ 23:52, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

I made a suggestion about this not too long ago( Character features - Just a few new ideas) but it included both hair and character appearance ,however I'm very happy to hear about the hair stylist :] --Haste of Flame 17:53, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I wouldn't actually mind if ANet took advantage of this and made us pay 100g per haircut.. just please for the sake of players implement it! -Lt Death 16:58, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

By the way, why not add that to GW1? This game still can be enhanced. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:91.193.199.2 (talk).

/agree /agree /agree I absolutely want them to allow a character to change their hairstyle for a fee. I also like that suggestion about linking it to Lyssa, since she's the goddess of deception and disguise, it makes for a very convenient way to explain away the presence of instant hair/face/skin color/hair color/body size feature changes. I also agree that this should be added to Guild Wars 1.
As for the difficulty of coding discussion, point(s) taken. It's understandable if they can't do this for GW1 because they boxed themselves in when they coded it, but GW2 is still in development. So at the very least they should acknowledge it as a mistake and take steps not to repeat it. I doubt they "hard code" much of anything though. Hard coding in general is considered a no-no, with very few exceptions. But I've been surprised before. Anyway. Great suggestion. Definitely feasible for GW2 and definitely worth doing. -Painted Bird


Here's what I say... for three days, the character has freedom to change his/her appearance as he/she wishes; however, after that period it must be dome for a fee. (by appearance I mean full body). Too many times I have put five or six hours of play onto a character only to delete him because his hair was wrong or his skin one tone off... The start-up changes will help new and old alike, as they can see what the character will look like in battle, but, to keep the integrity of the characters in the game, beyond that point changing anything (but the hair possibly) should cost money. (I apologize in advance, the Idea was probably already mentioned, but the long talk page scared me so I didn't read it...)Zeph 02:43, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
