Destiny 2 will be temporarily offline tomorrow for scheduled maintenance. Please stay tuned to @BungieHelp for updates.
I've been playing with the same Guardian character since Destiny 1 beta, but now... I don't feel connected to her anymore. You see, the problem is partially in the game, and partially in me. When they introduced the character creation rework, I was hoping, PRAYING we'd be allowed to change our characters appearance, but that never happened. Ever since my boyfriend started playing Destiny with me, I felt a disconnect between me and my Guardian's appearance, especially since the character rework. With my hopes of being able to change my Guardian's appearance dashed, I don't feel as connected to my Guardian as I had in the past. I considered making a new Guardian, and transferring all of my gear to them via Vault, but that comes with having to replay all of the currently available story missions, which is highly discouraging (and since I only play on one character, my Warlock, I've not filled the other two empty character slots). My boyfriend and I are long-distance. We've been happily together for over three years, and Destiny is just one of the ways we stay connected, and enjoy our time together despite the distance. Losing my personal connection to my Guardian because of how they look has been heartbreaking for me, and I wish with all my heart that there was some way I could change how she looks in order to rekindle my connection with her story. I'm sure Bungie doesn't yield to special cases, nor do I know if they can even change character appearances. But I hope that maybe someday we could be given the option to change our Guardian's appearance, even if it costs a pretty penny.
