Dear Wizard101,

I think it would be a good idea to change your hair style in the middle of the game. It would benefit a lot of people in my opinion. :)

Ya. I think there should be a barber shop in the shopping district. Just like how they added Castle & Lands and the Bazaar! This is a good idea cause i messed up my hair-do when i made my charcter, and i didnt want to go do the test over again so i decided to keep it. I have been grumpy about my hair ever since. :P

Oh my lord thank you Tina! That would be awesome! the tattoos could stand as a symbol such as maybe a dragon breathing fire that can be given to Grandmaster Pyromancer's There should be a tattoo shop were you can buy tattoos made and another part were you can customize your own.

Changing your hairstyle i agree! Make a barber shop in the shopping district. Please!

i agree with the hairstyles, i am almost ashamed of mine!

but tattoos....?

this is more of a kids game, i guess tattoos arent horrible (i mean they appeared on piratesonline, another kids game) but do you really think a wizard of all people would get a tattoo? >_>

just saying....

The whole idea of making ur wizard in the first place is that your supposed to say: "this is going to be what my wizard is going to look like at lvl 50." So you HAVE to choose then and ONLY then what it looks like. People would be changing their wizards back and forth, left to right, it would get all confusing! I mean, say i have a friend with a green pony tail thats named Kelly PixieFlower. Then she turns it to a pink long hair style with the name Mary Icefriend. Then to something else! She wouldnt be the same wizard, she would be 50 other wizards! You would get caught up as to if that really IS your friend or someone totally different! What if she changes her name when your not online so you dont know what she changed it to. You might delete her on accident and then think she deleted you! That would cause lots of problems!

I am very sorry if you do not like our ideas, none of us said we would CHANGE NAMES.
Actually I don't think KI will put our idea into work and release new hairstyles and tattoos.
I shouldn't even bother thinking about just some, some ideas that will probably not be even put to work. All of us know that KI is not going to release this if they are all working on mounts for wizards we are just having some ideas and agreeing with each other that it WOULD be cool of they had these. I am sorry if you don't like our ideas.

Being able to change names as well as facial and appearance features is standard in almost all modern MMOs.

The whole idea of making ur wizard in the first place is that your supposed to say: "this is going to be what my wizard is going to look like at lvl 50." So you HAVE to choose then and ONLY then what it looks like. People would be changing their wizards back and forth, left to right, it would get all confusing! I mean, say i have a friend with a green pony tail thats named Kelly PixieFlower. Then she turns it to a pink long hair style with the name Mary Icefriend. Then to something else! She wouldnt be the same wizard, she would be 50 other wizards! You would get caught up as to if that really IS your friend or someone totally different! What if she changes her name when your not online so you dont know what she changed it to. You might delete her on accident and then think she deleted you! That would cause lots of problems

None of that has ever been a problem in any MMO thus far.

World of Warcraft - Has an in-game barber shop, class change feature (out of game), server transfer etc.

Everquest 2 - Has an in-game barber shop, as well as styling features. (server transfers, faction change etc)

City of Heroes - In game costume shop which is one of its major features as well as Champions Online wich has the same.

Even free to play MMOs have similar features some of which are RMT items (Real Money Transactions).

Those games that offer name changes advice that you notify friends of the change so that when the name is changed their friends list gets updated.

But the problem is that many didn't know when they joined just how involved they'd get in this and how long they'd be with a wizard; I would assume that most people who join this game and are in the middle of picking an identity have no clue that there are 50 levels! A name that sounded cool at the beginning may not now as you've aged with your wizard.

Same or even more so with hairstyles and facial expressions. Say you liked the dopey look when you are just starting but now that you want to be taken seriously ... Or you might have thought you needed a mean expression but now with so many friends you'd rather smile. Especially since this game is aimed at kids and teens: think about how many opportunities there are to change clothes in this game ... are you really saying that they should never change their hairstyle too?!?!

If KI is looking for a ripe opportunity to have us spend gold and crowns, they'll jump at opening up hair salons at the very least! If it gets tested in test realm, I bet the numbers on this would be through the pixel-ated roof!

I vote for hair and face change. And, not that I want to change mine, I can see the desire for new names!
