one thing to note - you may have noticed the new hair tech used in the caitian beards. The team is planning to go back over all the hair in the game in the future to retrofit the older hair tech to this newer tech. When that is done, you can expect more hair options for the Caitians. There is also plans for more color variations and patterns in a future update.
Agreed... I am embarassed to say it... but I actually BOUGHT the caitians from the C-store, and MADE a caitian character... then ended up deleting her after I lvled her up to captain. I just couldn't handle the 'bald' look anymore. I figured if I can't have hair... I won't play a caitian. At least not female. LOL
Funny post script to that story though, the sci captain I created to replace her... is actually 100% better ANYWAY. LOL Pounce is a neat skill, as is the ability to jump higher, but compared to skills these skills:
...Caitians fall short of the 'practicallity factor'.
I am just one of those dreaded min/maxer players, so I design entire characters around a single build to achieve insane damage/healing in the game itself. I don't RP, or care about 'story' elements of my character. So all in all... Caitians are just another race that falls short for me. Can't use them. Although, if the females get hair, and they are generally improved overall... then I might be convinced to give it another go, just for aesthetic purposes. LOL
I have been asking and asking for a update on the hair/mane issue and still haven't gotten a response. As a person who loves Caitians and uses one for a main I feel a dev needs to drop in and tell us what is going on.
