    love the look and the story line.  Looks like they will have Honor and bravery based on what they had to deal with in their past.

     

    Now if I can just make the Elf Queen lady fall in love with an Archai :p

    After listing to the VoT Voice of Terminus team discuss this race I was hooked.   I agree it is a great story behind the race and the interaction with the other Terminus races will be interesting indeed. I think they will be enjoyable and most important to me a long term playable character.

    Yeah, I agree. I think you can create a really good storyline in your head with this Honorable race.  That being said, you can develop your storyline to be like "Hey, dwarves never helped us." so you can have your character not like Dwarves etc...Just a great storyline already with what they have given us

    Well they are an interesting race and they are already pulling me in with the struggles they have had to overcome. Makes them a good candidate race for faction and crafting too. I am chomping at the bit for new information and lore but we will have to wait. I am curious to see if they have a hierarchy in their culture. Tons of questions piling up so this should be fun.

    Love to see these brand new ideas. It may not be the first character I make, but I definitely want to try the Archai. It seems to me like the perfect race for a Summoner.

    Finally something fresh that isn't completely ridiculous or poorly thought up as races are so often in other games.  The lore is intriguing and I'm interested to read more into it.  My first reaction to the Archai was that they have a bit of Dark Elvish feel to them yet they seem 'alien' in their own right.  Very original!

    This race instantly grabbed my attention. I'm thinking they would make an amazing bard, seeing the mention of song in their lore. I just hope bard is ready before launch!

    No doubt.  While I think the other races all look good, I was drawn to and hooked with this one.  Any of those classes would be fun too, but Shaman or Druid really calls out to me.

    Well I was wrong about Archai being able to be Summoners. But they also seem like they'd make good Shamans, considering elements flow through their bodies, so I'm sure I'll make an Archai Shaman alt at some point :)

    Im in love with the lore and ideas behind this race. After reading all the race info, Archai will be my first and hopefully my main!

    Archai Paladin! Perhaps they'll develop a close bond with a deity in an expansion...

    Theses seems to have the most gradient of personnalization, with colorfuls and themed aesthetics. Like the presentation artwork shown, I'm waiting to see how much every Archai will look different from each others.

    they make me think of the Sylvari from GW2, with a lot of glows, rays and elemental attunement.
