    I was considering taking the human to elf quest, mostly so I could tame cu sidhe's and release for the purpose of discord. Not a huge reason to switch races.

    Has anybody else switch from human to elf and regretted it?

    Not sure I understand your reasoning... Releasing Cus for purpose of discord?? You mean to train disco on a herd of released Cus?

    If you are high enough to discord Cus, you can probably train disco via the bard mastery.

    I don't really think there is much downside to being an elf tamer vs human though.

    Right, tame and release Cu sidhe's so I have a number available to discord.

    My tamer has the taming mastery, actually didn't realize there was a bard mastery training method, I'll go read the FAQs...

    There is a downside, by the way, humans can carry 60 stones more, just wondered if any elves / humans had in-game experience where one might be better for a tamer than another.

    I'm going to start with the bard masteries tonight, so the cu cidhe tactic just went out the window...

    I did the quest on my tamer when I returned a few years back primarily because when I had quit playing there were no elves in the game and I wanted to do the quest...my tamer/bard seemed like the most logical character to convert. The +20 MI helps with the Masteries and any mage spells I need to cast. Other than that the permanent nightsight is kind of nice but I can't really think of anything else terribly useful since this toon is primarily for PVE.

    Well remember that now there are some nice shoes that give bonuses, even luck and a good amount so for me being able to use my CU without worrying about my shoes is a bonus.
    Plus imagine finding an awesome cu, rare color, good stats and being unable to tame it, worse seeing someone else come along and tame it under your nose.
