Norn - The Race of Optimists - MMORPG.com

Norn Week has officially begun! The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with the first article featuring the Norn race. The first posting gives a bit of information about the Norn including their native habitat and compares the starting experience for Norn players as compared to those choosing humans.

As you’ll see this week when we take a closer look at the Wayfarer Foothills area, a norn player in Guild Wars 2 will have a completely different experience than a human player. “The norn starting experience is tonally very different from the human one,” Bobby Stein says. “The happenings in Wayfarer Foothills, while dangerous, are more about hunting and celebration rather than outright war.”

In addition to a plethora of wild game and powerful creatures, norn characters adventuring in the Shiverpeaks will encounter the jotun, a race of fallen giants; the dredge, former slaves who claim the lost homelands of the dwarves; and the Sons of Svanir, norn who revere the Ice Dragon. There’s no shortage of opportunities for norn to prove themselves.
