Newbie Elementalist

Postby Wulv » Sun Aug 06, 2006 5:46 pm

Greetings Mud Brothers and Sisters,

I am trying to find out which race I should roll for an elementalist. I have not mudded heavily in years and am now looking to return. I have read everything I could find and have narrowed my choice down to three different races.

Grey Elf
Yuan-Ti
Gnome

What do ya'll recommend...thanks

Scardale will be your refuge if you play solo, good leveling area.. Race wise depends what side of the racewars you wanna play unless you want to go midline human to play with goodies and evils both.

Elves get sneak, it helps, quick mem, good agility.

Yuans get the coolest elemental pets, and miss some slots for gear but very good agility.

Dunno. Depends on you.

Yuan-ti have superior intelligence, followed by gnomes, then elves...in case you were curious.

All 3 races have infravision, but yuan-ti are limited to an extent by the lack of slots in the ears, feet, and legs. However, you can wear a tail slot (the diamond ring from Avernus is actually wearable on the tail too).

Actually, it's Greyelf, then yuan-ti/gnome (basically a tie.) Greyelf has 150 int, relative to human's 100. Yuan-ti and gnome have 125 int. Elf also starts at 49 ac with 97 agi if I remember right, but elf has worse constitution. Yuan-ti can, but barely, hit 49 ac as well. Gnomes only get 55 ac but notch to 49 ac at 101 agi.

Gnomes are definitely harder to bash for most larger mobs. Some mobs are too big to bash them, but the same mobs can bash a yuan-ti or elf cuz they are taller.

if you are new to the game, consider this, getting off of hyssk is difficult if you are < level 20. And if you don't know the way when you are > 20 you'll probably need to ask someone. Hyssk dangerous place to explore.

From a game point of view it is all fine races. I think you chose them because you wanted infravision; that is always nice.

Play whatever race you think is coolest. Personally I play an elf because they have fastes mem-time and best ac. but all of the races you mentioned can excel as an elementalist.
