One of the reasons I play GW2 over other MMOs is because this game breaks so many molds. For one, I love that there are no elves or dwarves (well, there used to be dwarves), no halflings or orcs. GW2 races are completely unique. My favorite would have to be the charr. I love their complex society, their Legions and warbands, their renouncement of gods -- it's all so unique and cool! Back when I played GW1, I remember being fascinated by the charr. I always wanted to play as one. Now I can. And it's awesome.
