    Default Does Race Matter?

    does starting race matter that much? I want to play a dwarf mage but i lose out on 5 INT does that matter that much? do you have to be the other race to succeed? will i always be subpar?

    Race means diddly squat. Unless you're interested in racials

    Angelic Flight lets you get on top of stuff.

    play a dwarf. midgets rule. besides you can hide behind bushes, rocks and fallen logs.

    actually race means nothing. play what you like and want. i have a dwarf mage myself and i laugh every time i see him running around with a staff twice as tall as him.

    Yeah races are purely cosmetic, maybe a racial being more useful.

    Also Dwarfs rock! It's awesome to jump off everything and not take damage. They also look awesome.

    Your racial means you can drink a lot of booze in RL so you can drunk raid better than nondwarves. but yes, racials (for better or worse) aren't that useful in endgame. :<

    Well, the only thing I would think a little about is the different resist bonuses the difference races get. kelari gets +20 fire resist atleast. This is only important for raiders tho

    After playing one character with Angelic Flight, I rerolled all my lowbies to be elves so they could have it too. I find it invaluable, especially for getting to some hard-to-reach places. I still use it around Sanctum to shortcut walk times to/from the porticulum, since our port is indoors and mounts drop.

    The other consideration for me is Dwarf. I have died quite a few times from falling damage, esp while going after cairns, puzzles, and shinies. They take the concept of inertia far too seriously in this game.
