So, character creation is decent. It's nothing like say, Phantasy Star Online 2 or Aion, but it's got a decent set of options... but then, this is also based on the current stress test build. I can't play a human character though. Nolan North's voice is getting really tiring to hear in one lead role after another in game after game. Looks like I may have to deviate from my usual pattern and make a Sylvari or something, once it's an available option. They and the Asura are not accessible right now.
