    Pfft, Charr trump Sylvari any day. Been in love with the big cats ever since I started killing them in the first Guild Wars four years ago.

    Thank you for acknowledging the most unique and different races. I've read so many articles about how this one is better than the other, or how my preference is superior to yours. Diversity in character profile, breaking free from the dry fantasy "Big, medium, small" you encounter in the character creation phase, is quite refreshing.

    I want to play as a mind flayer in an MMO. Are there any that let you do that?

    The Elder Scroll races of Khajiit, a cat race which changes in appearance, from almost elf like to a giant ridable panther, according to the cycles of the moon when they are born, and the Argonian, a race of lizardmen, born from the roots of the Hist, a semi-sentient species of trees, which they share a mental link with, should also be on this list in my opinion.

    I would go on a tangent and say that the Asura of Guild Wars 2 are intriguing as all get out. Lilo-esque and once a subterranean specie, they live topside and specialize in building high-tech facilities, weapons, and massive servant robots in an apparent age where other races are still grasping the utilizing the concept of gun powder and combustible projectiles. They are also super snarky, clever and smug, like a race of dwarf alien MIT scholars.

    I second this, and will add that they are paradoxically adorable-looking at least half the time, despite the fact that they would be considered amoral by other races (they're very much like Spartans in their outlook towards weaker members of their species). You just wanna pick one up and cuddle it! But, y'know, they're probably counting on that so they can manipulate you into doing their bidding (you hapless bookah)... Also, I was kind of sad not to see the Iksar on here. They're so different from the grand majority of other MMO races (not the least of which is for being anatomically-correct reptiles) that they're a huge part of why I spent so much time with EQ2 even when I just wasn't that interested in the game itself.

    I'm pretty partial to the bigger races. Tauren, Char, that sort of thing. And good job paying respects to Chaos--that's a mean arm sword they got. It's a shame WH:O didn't do too well commercially. It was damn-near perfect to being what Warhammer was all about. Great article, too. Love seeing MMO love across the board, even if I just play the most popular one.

    I'm honestly partial to Tauren, Dranei, and Charr. I like big hulky races. I do like that the Dranei are at least unique to the WoW universe.

    Aw no Charr?

    *forheadpalms* No, the warforged are NOT a staple race in dungeons and dragons. The Eberon setting, yes, but not the game in a nutshell. As a matter of fact they didn't exist at all before Eberon did, though to be fair they did filter into the main game.
