As of the latest beta patch, the character creation screen has been updated. This update features a number of improvements including streamlined menus, gear set previews, and thumbnails representing each character customization option (skin color, face, hair style, hair color, etc).

Given how much has changed, we'd like to get your feedback on what you like, what you don't like, and what elements of the new UI you feel could benefit from further tuning. Specifically, we'd love to hear your opinions on the following updates:

  • The new gear preview. During the first step of the character creation process, we now display your character in a high-level armor set specific to the class you've selected. Your character will appear in its normal starting gear only after you've confirmed your race, class, and gender and moved to step two (appearance customization).
  • The movement of class and race information from the selection menus to a new "More Info" button located on the bottom-left of the screen.
  • The thumbnails for each character customization option.

Please feel free to weigh in on other aspects of the UI, as well. Thank you in advance for your feedback!
