They will be adding things to character creation, and someone posted on another post saying that EVERYONE will have a one time chance come 2.o to change the appearance of their character...so basically...if you are asking if there will be a bunch of "manquote's" walking around with FFX Lulu type bossoms...then your answer will be yes....
This view (read = hate) of guys playing female characters always kind of cracked me up about this game and XI, because it just doesn't exist in any other MMO I've ever played, and I've played a LOT of them. TBH, about 70% of all the characters I've created in MMOs are male, but my XIV character is a mithra (whatever they call the race now). What it comes down to? I'm only going to have ONE character for this game because I'm not going to pay for more slots, I might as well not stare at man-ass the entire time I'm playing with no relief. If I can delude the man-ass with other characters it's not a big deal (my warrior in WoW is male, http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/area-52/Gorph/simple
but if it's all I'm ever going to look at, give me a female.
EDIT: And yes, when 2.0 comes out, and my 10 dollars a month will pay for 8 characters on a realm / 40 characters total, I will be re-rolling my main character to a male. Edited, Apr 24th 2012 9:24am by granpachook Edited, Apr 24th 2012 9:29am by granpachook
