Players in a desert, with different styles applied.

Two players holding different items.

The player is the character that users control in-game. Each player has an avatar which is the customizable character which represents players in-game. Players have 100 health points, and lose health when taking damage.[1]

Character creator[]

Main article: Character creator

The player's appearance can be customized using the character creator, where different aspects of the player can be edited and different themed styles can be applied.


The player model can be customized,[2] allowing the player to take the form of any NPC in-game,[3] also known as "morphing". Players can also create their own models for the avatar to display in-game.

The head of the player model is tilted very slightly five degrees upwards by default due to the fact that users tend to look slightly down while playing video games.[4] This only affects how other players see the avatar and does not change the camera angle.[5]


Different clothing items are worn on different layers; armor will appear on top of all clothes.[6]


The player's avatar can have different facial expressions and perform emotes. Some expressions are activated during gameplay, like gritting teeth when pulling out a sword, but others can be customized and triggered manually.[6]
