    You can get keys and play in groups and have healing while having necro...



    I always go elf for the extra 20 mana.
     
  3. Why doesn't someone make a guide from all the reasons to go Elf or Human and put a sticky on it? Seems this gets asked a lot, and not having to hunt for it would be a good idea for those wondering.

    You don't absolutely need parry, it's just pretty damn nice. For keys, healing is more useful. Drop parry to 0, add 20 to tactics/anat, bring healing to 100.
     
  7. There's no need for a sticky, it's simple really.

    As a general rule:

    PvM- Elf
    PvP- Human

    See, wasn't that easy? :thumbsup:

    Yes, but my general rule is different.

    PvM: Human
    PvP: Human

    But in all honesty, it depends on the player. Different play-styles have different needs.
     
  9. See what I mean? There should be more to it than just one or the other, why you would choose one over the other, pros and cons, play style differences. Anything a new player would want to know when deciding.

    For me:
    PvM: Elf (for the 20 extra mana)
    Crafter/Miner: Human (for the JOAT skills and Strongback)
    Tamer: Elf (to tame cu sidhe)
