The female elf pic does a little bit scream "To eviscerate me, start here."  But I guess it's just a sign that female elves are nimble enough to dodge rapacious pikemen ... and rapacious anything else, for that matter.

Can't catch me!

Looks like a lot of work went into these pics, congratulations to the artists!!!

LOL Kilotov.   I've no idea which picture is urs but at least u are fully clothed :P 

I wish they'd give us the option to replace the profile pics with our own... a lot of us have pics posted on our profiles anyway.. Would be great to use that. 


Well I am putting in a petition to keep Kilotov fully clothed. Most Definitely

All kudos to the artists, but they are a little sexist.
1) all dwarves have beards (both male and female)
2) if it's cold enough for a male elf to wear furs, shouldn't the female elf? I mean in Newcastle upon Tyne, both women and men wear next to nothing in mid-winter.  

Still, fantastic art!  Would be even better if we could choose to overwrite with our own artwork, change colours, etc - not that I'm artist enough to change mine but some are (see avatars in discussion forum identities)

LOL....

you have a point though.

unfortunately my seers have predicted a large increase  in the female elven population over the coming months.

would be interesting to see figures on whether there is a change.
(is that possible devs?)

Well, I'm female and I personally don't mind at all. I think it's far better than the picture where we looked constipated! :)

I am not female and do agree its much better than the last female elf.

However, I can understand why some female players would not be happy with their avatar looking like some skinny weak armoured pole dancer.

Think there should be some option open to them in this regard.
