Allow Skin color to be chosen at game account creation
Although the "Hometown" system is very unique and interesting, majority of players I feel would like to choose their skin color instead of guessing from the list. The skin clinic quest can still be utilized with players wishing to change high level characters and characters that would be difficult to remake.
Allow personalized customization of the character. Lots of people skim over this and choose the hometown based on their class they want to be. There are also a lot "why am I black?" comments that happen in #main that can lead to some unwanted racist conversations. "Why am I black" quickly turns into "well what hometown did you select" to "Morroc because I want to be a thief" to "THIEVES ARE BLACK LOL". This can all be solved by allowing players to customize their characters.
