Many of the ways in which you can customize your avatar in Dofus cannot be changed later so you should take care when choosing them. Some of the first ways that you customize your Dofus avatar are by choosing your class and gender. You can be a male or female and this choice will only affect the way your avatar looks within the game. Gender will not affect your skills or abilities and it also does not affect your ability to marry within the game.
You will also need to choose the class which will affect different things about your Dofus avatar. For example, each of the 12 classes has different abilities and spells. You can also choose a color for your avatar. This will not have any impact on how your character plays within the game; it only affects how you look. Finally, you will need to choose a name for your Dofus avatar. Then, you're all ready to play. Dofus avatars are the way you will come to associate certain players with their characters and how you will get to know people within the game. It is also how people will know you. Choose wisely and you will get more enjoyment from your experience in Dofus.
