    The only real difference now is the +10 stat boost but that wont be very important at 50. If you're a true min/maxer who cares about that then Elf is best choice if I am remembering correctly that they get +10int.

    There's some stuff that you get for free that drops from rifts that can give you up to +15 to any stat you're wanting to stack. And this happens shortly after you leave the starting area.
    So that +10 for whatever race you pick isn't really that useful.
    The other stats are a minor resist to one kind of element. Also, not very useful and the same as above applies to them too.

    I personally pick character/race based on their story (RP reasons), their looks (because who wants to look at something that's not enjoyable), and the flavour ability.

    The sprint ability, while not usable in combat, can be activated out of combat and the buff remains if you get in combat after you cast it. Seems useful to me, at least a lot more useful than some of the other racials..

    Ah then Eth would be first choice Elf second. But like I said the +10 is pretty negligible it's just some people get really bothered by that stuff.

    According to the gamers day3 people, the +10 stats for the races are going away. So play what you like based on looks or maybe the other racial ablities.

    Ya just heard on podcast the stat buffs are being removed, so then race really doesn't matter as the abilities are pretty situational and out of combat anyways.
