    ...made me look.







    ...Options are always good. However, IF we ever see sex change as an option, I'm sure it'll be on the same page as character transfers and name changes. Probably.

    Last time the Devs addressed this issue they told us it wasn't going to happen.

    It's too resource-intensive to change given the small pay off.

    Funny. I would think sex is in the same category as race, facial detail, and hair color as opposed to Name or Server.

    I think when Turbine gets with times and supports the T in LGBTQ, we will get a sex change included in Reincarnations.

    Sounds like they are stuck in a medieval world. ^^ get it. Slaying arrow hit!

    Despite the desire to make double-entendre's, I'm just going to agree with the OP.
    Once upon a time, I was part of a team, and we saved some children. What have you done with your life?

    Except I am not asking for a mid-life sex-change for characters; I am asking for this option to be available at the Character Creation screen for True Reincarnation. Character dies and is reborn in a new body, new race, new looks... why not new sex?

It's not too hard to figure out that is not what this game needs right now. 2-3 million karma ok, there's some pain for your gain. But really, the EPL's are not worth the pain of 6 million XP in off destinies/sphere's.

    After thinking it through, I realize I was in error comparing sex to race. Race is a structural factor; it has a direct effect on stats, weapon proficiencies, and other things. Sex is more like hair color in that is cosmetic. I cannot think of anywhere in game it makes any difference in the performance of the character. It's not like we have a villainous Buffy in game that has a strong commanding effect on men, but to which women are immune.

    So eyes, nose, hair, and sex are pretty much the same thing. Why can we not have the option to select a different sex on a TR?

    You can search forum, this exact question you just asked was answered by dev before.
    I dont remember the answer exactly, but the problem was somewhere along the lines: In the beginning of the game, we tied gender of the character to something structural and important, thus it now carries infromation thanks to which you TRs have past lives, dont delete character upon TR and keep TR bank.

    So, yeah... something like that. While workaround is propably possible, changing it would be expensive time wise and most importantly, it would create lots of bugs. Bugs in the TR area.... can you imagine the rage?

    The Dev response was words to the effect that gender is very tightly tied to character identity and is touched by many different in game systems. The concern was that if they tried to change it bugs could appear in many various systems including ones you wouldn't immediately think are at all related to gender.

    I would appreciate being able to buy a gender change like I can buy a name change, but there are already so many bugs out there that I'm not going to push too hard for something that will likely result in many many more.
