So, with the recent announcement of female dwarves being an option in Lotro with the addition of the Stout-Axe dwarves, I’ve been curious how they will implement it. To be honest, I did not think I’d get anything with breasts or visibly female, but I was still hoping for some androgynous face options (with a beard on top, of course!).
However, everything is clearly male and there are no differences between the male and female options (as one would expect in the Lord of the Rings world). So in fact, the only thing that changes is that you can click “female” and are maybe also addressed as a female person in the game. But I’m not sure you’re ever addressed by your gender…
I did not get to play through the new starting area and since the public test realm is offline again, I guess I’ll just have to wait. But if you’re curious, Contains Moderate Peril has an overview about it.
I did take a few screenshots of the Stout-Axe dwarves in the character creation screen, though. I really like the hair styles!
