Mr Flibble is VERY cross

I had the same experience in the 1st BWE. The first race I tried was Norn and I found them and their starting area particularly underwhelming..... then I switched to Charr and had a BLAST, and then in the subssequent BWEs created alts for the other races too. 

I discovered that I dont like the Norn, and I dont like the Asura. The other races and starting areas are great though. I guess its a matter of personal taste. My friend LOVES the Norn.....

With regards to the running speed, all the races actually run at exactly the same speed, but the Norn and Charr look like they are running slow because of their size / gait / run animation. The Asura look like they are running fast because they are small

Well, I finally decided after much deliberation to play a Norn. I wasn't going to play one because of the reasons the OP stated, they are slow, and bulky. But, I goofed with the size in creation today and made him as small as I could, made his frame smaller, and it made a big difference. At least it did to me! Don't talk me out of it by telling me I'm wrong or I will believe you! :)

My dream has been a Norn Guardian! I love the racial skills, and the big Viking/Norwegian look to them. Damn I'm excited! 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Let me start off by saying I do apologize for saying "Norn suck" indirectly.....I shouldn't push my opinion on anyone......To reply to you, I really don't know why I didn't like the game playing norm.....I really didn't enjoy it and had second thoughts on my purchase.....Maybe it was my toon speed? Maybe the start zone? I dunno, I just didn't want to play anymore after playing it....

 

Anyway, my friend also just bought the game and was the one who told me to jump on.....He absolutely loved the Norn and I asked him why? He said because he feels powerfull.......I don't understand but it does appeal to some  people.....

 

I told him to try human because it was WAY better and he said it couldnt get better then norn LOL.....To each his own

Sounds like movement.

If we represent movement and races as characters on the screen, it would be something like the following, with movement being to the right.

Human:

HH

HH

HH

 

Asura:

A

A

A

 

Norn:

NNN

NNN

NNN

 

So notice how humans move about 2 full body lengths per unit of time.  Asurans move twice that fast relative to their size at about 4 body lengths.  Norns are incredibly sluggish, at about 1.5 body lengths.

Since the ground is moving under the character's feet, the relative movement affects both how quickly you see them move over terrain (relative to their size) AND how fast the movement animations are.  Since Norn have longer legs, they have to move slower than you'd expect to maintain the same speed as Asurans and Humans.  If they moved at the logical speed for someone of their height, then they'd outpace the others which would be unbalanced.  Similarly, Asuran's little feet have to really move their legs to cover the same distance, and you see the distance relative to their character "footprint" is bigger too.

Of course, to some the slow, steady movement of the Norn can come across as the movement of a powerful and slow juggernaught.

Ever since the Norn were first announced i been wanting to play one.

I just can´t, i really want cause i love the mythology and how you help the animal spirits in the personal quest but...

....i just can´t.

The animations, those deformed, gorilla like bodies....the underwhelming..boring....crappy looking starting area....

 

It feels like they made the norn as a test puppet and then they produced all the other races.

Yes, I felt the same about the Norn males. Too much Hulk.

That's why I played a female Norn, they are much more normal, just tall.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Don't let post like mine discourage you.....There is many people who think Norn are the most amazing race after trying them all......There's a reason people voice there opinion on what race they like, because we all like different ones!.....

 

I personally wanted to play human since day one.....BUT since my friend wanted to play norn I figured ide test one just for stress test......So maybe my opinion is biased

Ok so I finally bought the game yesterday and decided to try it for the first time ever during todays stress test....Well wtf?

 

I played a Norm and I really said wtf? This game blows....I felt sluggish and it just didn't seem fun at all.....The area made me feel like i was getting dizzy from everything that was going on......so I said ide try human and heres my thoughts.....

 

It was the BEST experience I think I ever had in any mmo to date......I felt like everything was so smooth and the atmosphere absolutely stunned me! I loved it!......

 

So I have one question......How can I have such different reactions to the same game? Ive never really had this with other game alts ect......Granted I only played a few hours so far, My opinion should be kept to myself till i logged at least 50 hours? I dunno but I had to ask the forums because I can't figure it out! 

The Norn experience has been complained about extensively during beta. It's probably the worst in the game.

With that said, I actually prefer Norn over humans. They move with power.

On the bright side, you can take a Norn character and go to any other race's lands right from the start. You don't have to level up in your zones and you don't have to do the personal story. You do get some pretty cool items from it though.

Odd.

Why was Norn complained about? I liked Norn starter area. Admitted, I too loved Human the most. But Norn was kinda my 2nd fav. with that sort of pseudo Norse setting. Do you recall what people complained about?

And OP: so you hated GW2 first and now with human you like it? I still don't understand what exactly you disliked about Norn?

Most of the complaints were about the Norn personal stories and the first 1-5 area. Apparently some people didn't like the DEs and the hearts there.

Personally, Norn is one of my favorite races in the game. I'm really digging the whole viking vibe. The personal stories were a bit weak though. Then again, I'm not a fan of GW2's personal stories anyway.

i agree norn males look little off to me but norn female has couple body types that look great and basically just make them look like very tall but still well proportioned humans

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg
