The upcoming changes to Character Customization are described in this forum post.
Currently in Albion Online, humans are the only available race.
The following features are customizable and randomizable:
- Skin Color
- Beard (for male characters only)
- Hair Style
- Hair Color
- Underwear Syle
- Underwear Color
Players pick their first avatar during character creation and can choose and earn other avatars and borders in-game. The avatar border can be customized as well. There are limited edition custom borders, for example from the monthly challenges and from the season ranking of the guild.
In-game customization of a character allows players to tailor to their play style: Albion Online uses a classless character customization system, where the equipment a character equips determines the stats, spells, active, and passive abilities available. A character can switch roles by changing equipment or even make a build that is a hybrid of various roles, such as a spell caster wearing plate armor.
Characters can also equip decorative or cosmetic items. However most of the decorative or cosmetic items have no ability and a limited number of cosmetic items have non-fighting abilities such as Uncle Frost's Hat. Some of the decorative items are limited edition items (from special events), and some can be purchased at the vanity merchant with Gold.
The starting human location is randomly chosen between Swamp, Mountain, Forest, Hill and Steppe Landing
However, there is the possibility to change your look by right-clicking in the top left corner on your avatar and click the "Appearance", then you can modify it as you please. After you finished changing your look, you need to left-click "Apply"
