What are your favorite races, lore and why? Which ones would you not play and why? As for me, my faves are drakkin, highelf, woodelves and barb I suppose. I'll go over why in a sec, pro and con but let me give honorable mention to dark elves, and human females with the monk style tube top look. I'll go into them more after this. Drakkin: Firstly, I love drakkin looks and lore...more over looking at Drakkin females and there cute but exotic faces and great armor look, more over the plate. Second only to wood eleven leather. As for as looks the only draw back is the skin tone is too pinkish should be paler or outright tan. Oh yeah and give em claws. Elegant bone color. Technically I like the breath attack, and the swan hairdo, the fact that each as a heritage and a dragon parent they can see and do quests for. Also the the breath attack makes leveling warriors, and rouges more bearable in the beginning and you get a fun quest every 5 levels. I like that its not just given. You can sometimes level just by doing these. Ie killing place holders and others while there. It also has a sense of completeness and immersion that appeals. Drakkin are also just BAD A#$, and they breath fire. If you played longest journey one you also can see the appeal of the driac kin, or however you spell it. Fascinating lore. Highelves: As for highelves, they are high elves, enough said. They look sort of like me and my family, being of Nordic heritage in the long ago. I can relate to there looks. There city is lovely. There are peaceful and a proud people. Very magical, honorable and yeah...pretty. Felwite is in my top 3 fave mmo cities. Woodelves: My reason is obvious, second most appealing models but otherwise meh..kethlyn is awkward to get around in, just like it is in eq 2. Barb: Barb females are ok shape and walk wise, they have this face like the girl in sleeping with the enemy...not that beautiful, but striking and sort of pretty, in a way. They are Amazons, but really feminine, not flat chested or butch, there short spiky hair model is even pixish and adorable. Moreover it makes sense because a attacker could not grab it and put a blade to there throat. Same reasons the Romans cut it short. They are warriors after all but not afraid to be women. Amazing confidence and no fear. Yet they have the exotic amazon build. They look fine, except there skin tone looks sun burnt, not tan or pale. Maybe its the cold. I like halas, the great divide and so on, the newbie armor quests are also easily doable for a different eq experience, if one is in the mood. Also a honorable people. Dark elves: Now dark elves, the good is they have this cute face option with a cute little nose that makes them look like a 80's girl. A good walk, that makes learning stealth on a female rouge very fun. The bad thing is they have the eyes of a mutant goat, and remind me of grown men and women cosplaying smurfs. LA-la-la-laa...Leaves me feeling a little blue. Others: As for the midgets and animal characters, the bearded ladies...meh, I make them and delete them because I just cant take it seriously. Which is sad because I love shir val on lucian, the city and surrounding regions are in my top eq fave places..fly me to the moon and let my sing among the stars...ah..oh well. ..................................................................................................................................................
