Every player loves to customize their character to make it their own. However, this term can mean many things, depending on who you ask. For some, it might be the tools to create the perfect avatar during character creation. For others, it may mean having the flexibility to allocate stat points or a variety of skills to choose from as you level up. It might even be as simple as having the cosmetic items you need to channel your inner fashionista.
Ultimately, character customization in MMOs is about creating a character that’s only yours (unless you’re one of those Flavor-of-the-Month meta-followers). After all, you’ll be watching and playing this character for years to come. So today I present to you the 10 MMOs with the best character customization.
Black desert online
BDO is arguably one of the prettiest looking MMOs out there, and it would be a shame if you couldn’t put some of that beauty into your character creation. Thankfully, developer Pearl Abyss was up to the challenge, and I challenge you to find a character creator, MMO or not, that gives you as many options as the creation suite you’ll find in Black Desert Online.
While other MMOs find a few sliders and a large color palette sufficient, BDO takes creating the perfect avatar to the next level. Each body layer is divided into multiple customizable sections, giving you ultimate control over your character’s physique and facial features, for better or worse.

Add a few weapons and you’re on your way.

As with most MMOs, you start by choosing a class or archetype champions on the internet Dialect. After that, you get to the heart of character creation as you begin to piece together the most important aspect of any superhero – their costume.

If there’s one game on this list that goes into overkill territory with its character customization, this has to be it Eve online. With the tools at your disposal, you can create an avatar that rivals most of the others on this list. However, the funny thing is that no one ever really sees it.
Even though Eve online The avatar creator could create this list by itself, the real reason we included Eve online is the freedom you are granted in developing your character. Unlike many MMOs where your character’s class determines the skills available to you, Eve online stays true to its sandbox roots by allowing you to compose your workout the way you see fit. Whether you want to be a fearsome pirate or live your life as a peaceful miner, you can choose which skills you want to learn and in what order you want to learn them. Then complement those skills with the right ship and gear, and you have a character all yours.
Dungeons and Dragons Online
The graphics are dated and you don’t need to customize any body or face controls, but you’ll be hard pressed to find an MMO that comes as close to authentic D&D tabletop character creation as this Dungeons and Dragons Online. in the DDO, You build your character from the ground up. Find all D&D staples here – 20 races (including their modifiers), 15 classes, gender, and the 6 default stats are all set by you, and that’s just the beginning. You also allocate your skill points to your combat and non-combat abilities, followed by your character’s choice of talents and spells. The D&D system doesn’t stop at character creation either. As you level up, you’ll continue to flesh out your character in true D&D fashion, including the ability to switch multiple classes and gain epic feats.
If the thought of trying to navigate the complexities BDOs Character Creator gives you the chills, but you want more than a handful of faces and hairstyles to choose from, then Elyon is for you. The newest MMO on this list, Elyon strikes a nice balance for character creation. You still have a plethora of options to enhance your face and body, but it only takes an hour or two to work your way through all the options available. Oh, and they have a furry race if you’re into that sort of thing.
Choosing a class in a classic MMO is a pivotal moment. It determines whether you take on an offensive or defensive role, play melee, ranged, or magic, and even determines what type of armor and weapon you will have. In the 2010s, some MMOs began to embrace the idea of a more open class system, where simply switching weapons could alter your role in the party. While it allows you to quickly switch between, for example, a tank and full DPS, it still doesn’t offer much flexibility in each individual build.
Crack takes a slightly different, more elegant approach. Instead of assigning roles to weapons, Crack still adheres to five basic class archetypes or callings in Crack Terminology – Warrior, Mage, Rogue, Cleric, and Primalist. However, within each archetype, players can mix and match from multiple souls (aka skill trees) to change their role on the fly. With around 10 souls per vocation, players can mix and match souls to play each vocation as they see fit, and the use of multiple skill trees gives you greater flexibility in building than many other MMOs. Do you want to be a cleric who deals DPS instead of healing? Do it. You can even build a mage or rogue tank if you want.
