Having played a Witch focused around cold damage and totems to 50, the only thing I don't like about the game is the lack of customization.

Sure, there probably will be costumes and other cosmetic items for character in the cash shop, but it undoubtedly will take some time for the devs to add enough cosmetic items to create a visually unique character.

As a general rule, Diablo style ARPGs (TQ, Sacred, DS and D3) were never much on the aesthetic customization that you are referring to. This will change for the first time with PoE's open beta cash shop.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Generally in an action RPG I prefer my characters look to be based on the items the character is wearing.

So I would look different based on if I was wearing leather jerkins or full plate.  I wouldn't look like I was wearing a pink tuxedo while wearing full plate, and I hope that isn't the kind of visual unique character customization you're seeking.

Also, in most of my action RPG play, I prefer character customization to be more about customizing its abilities, stats, and features, rather than dress up.

I dont think he means a dressing room option.  I think more of the fact that you can make your hair, face, etc different looking.  Someday would be nice if both sexes got all classes, even in the cash shop, with alternate names

Witch/Warlock to that nature

It's been confirmed character skins and extra features like more blood on a kill are being sold in the cash shop later.
