    Default Will both female and male models of each class be available?

    Will both female and male models of each class be available?

    I have seen games do both. I don't mind having only one gender to choose, as long as a good number of classes have both. If there is a distinction, will it be race specific? I.e. some races can't be female blade dancer but others can?

    I think it is pretty standard to have male/female options for all classes these days. I would be surprised if this changed, but I can't speak for the devs of course

    I get what he is saying. They showed mainly female shots...nothing wrong with that....sex sells...to a degree. But I'm pretty sure there will be male/female options.

    The only game I know of that had rules about Class Sex, was Warhammer and they were working with another company's IP. Telara is Trion's property, I believe they can do with it whatever they please.

    I've tried a few games where the classes were sex specific. None of them kept my interest long.

    Not only is it more enjoyable to choose both what sex and class you are, but it gives more variety in game. Which, to me is an important issue. It gets rather boring seeing and interacting with the same five avatars.

    I would like to add that I will probably play the ugliest looking male warrior they have and I will still be sexy. :-) . Chicks dig the sword. On a serious note I doubt they would have sex specific classes as well.

    I haven't seen too much sex-restriction in modern western MMOs. WAR had a few, but that was because existing lore demanded so. I doubt we'll see much in Rift though. At least I hope not.

    Rift is a what developers call an "AAA MMO", meaning it has a large scale budget and will be going for a very large audience, among other things.

    On top of it all, since characters can switch between classes they have leveled up, there is no realistic way to stop one class from being a specific sex unless an equal is created (think Final Fantasy Tactics Bard and Dancer), which is something I still highly doubt due to Rift being a large scale MMO.

    As for animations being visible, I'm sure it is all "Coming Soon (TM)".

    As others have said before, it is likely they will have more than one gender. If they do not however, I will be severely disappointed. Gender-restricted classes kill games I tell you.

    There will OBVIOUSLY (I can't stress this enough) be different genders per class. Take a look at the class section of the website, if you click on Blade Dancer you see the male version in the gif on the left, in comparison, in the pictures at the bottom you see a female being portrayed as a Blade Dancer. The very same is displayed when you click on elementalist as well. There is no other proof for the other two classes showed, however; I doubt they'd only make the ability to choose ones gender only specific to a few classes. In addition, the word choice in the class descriptions is thought out well enough that it doesn't include he/she anywhere, it refers to the class androgynously.

    Edit: The same conclusion, about gender restricted races, can be drawn from viewing the race section of the website as well.

    TL;DR - Classes and Races will both be unrestricted gender wise. (Although it remains to be seen whether the combination poses any restrictions, I.E. Mathosian Blade Dancer, however from the pics it seems there is no restriction, but not enough to say so 100% until more information is released).

    I think it's highly unlikely we'll see gender specific classes, but we'll have to wait and see.
    Personally, I don't like restrictions like that. I can be OK with it if it makes sense lore wise,
    but I wouldn't be happy about it, though.
