What is the purpose of choosing a particular Nameday and a particular Guardian?

You get your very own nameday and Guardian.
Just joking. You mean stuff like the hidden "+3% Crit Hits" from Ralgr or the "+10% Magic Resistance" from Halone?

Are those actual findings or just exmaples? If they're true, thats some rather beefy bonuses for your Guardian choice!

They will probably remain completely hidden forever, nullifying any "real" meaning in choosing one Guardian or Nameday over the other. Or they will release info 6 months down the road when you have a mid-high level character already and need to make another one to get certain bonuses. Then 3 months later they will "balance" the bonuses and switch them up.

Because they are evil [s]********* mysterious like that.

This is when you will find out that the bonuses you got from your selection gives you plus 2 to shoe size, and 3% additional emote movement.

Currently: "In the Beta version, gender, nameday, and guardian do not affect his/her attributes"

However if you consider what all the guardians stand for, there are some ideas that you can get.

1) Each guardian is alligned with an element, so possibly guardian choice could add an increased factor of elemental resistance/power.
2) Each guardian has a story that gives them certain traits: e.g. Halone is a godess of war so perhaps having her would give an increase to melee characters. Llymlaen is a fisher so perhaps she would grant bonuses to Fishing.
3) With your moons and stuff, perhaps when the calendar falls into the moon/month that you belong to, you get bonuses on your stats or maybe even exp/item drops
4) With your nameday, maybe you get a birthday prezzie?

Just some thoughts

Edit: This Thread has all the guardian info in it.

I've noticed I get a LOT more earth crystals and shards from mobs. I have the male earth guardian.

It's not so bad that they "hide" some things, but character creation is a huge deal in MMO's. I mean, people can spend HOURS just thinking up a name that has no affect on gameplay or stats at all. So if they don't release detailed information on these things (or allow players to change their guardian/nameday somehow) then I will be very put-off. VERY!
