    First Off. I apologize if this is in the wrong Forum Area.


    So I know I definately want to play and main a Dire Lord at this point. They call to me, and I just love the idea all together. Especially until Necros are released.


    I don't want to be a Human, and Skar just doesn't speak to the character concept I have in mind. So I'm trying to decide between Dark Mry and Orges. I know I still have a good amount of time, but I was curious on what everyone's opinions were on the two, especially Lore wise.

    How do you feel about sea food? Would you rather be "dumb" or "brooding"?

    All jokes aside, if I had to pick between race and class, I'd usually go with class, because it has a much bigger impact on gameplay. Class defines how your character plays and feels. Race is more for flavor and aesthetics.

    I already Know my class. I'm going to roll a Dire Lord 100%. But I believe there is more than sea food to the Dark Mry, and the more I read the Lore, I don't believe the Orges are "Dumb" by any means. I think that's just a sterotype everyone has.

    To elaborate a bit more though, I plan on RP as well. So that's why I'm torn at the moment between the two.

    They haven't released the race specifics yet but we do know that Ogres will have a more difficult time navigating small spaces without being magically reduced in size.

    I wouldn't count out all of the races until they've been revealed.  (I think a Skar DL would be cool if you think of the Skar as trolls).

    Honestly when I think of DireLords the only races  I consider are Ogres and Skars (and I'm having trouble deciding - though i'll alt DL not anywhere close to the beginning so i'll probably decide based on their racial abilities and passives and their compability to the class - though if my feelings are correct then ogres would have some bonuses to crit dmg and hp rec and skars to crit chance and att speed, so it would be all beneficial, but we'll see). You should watch (listen to) lore video about Arak Amel by Chris Kane - may help you decide ;)

    If racial stats / abilities are important, you'll need to wait until probably beta to have enough info to decide. If you're more interested in the lore aspects, then I would suggest looking at how you envision your Dark Lord, especially what motivates the character. I see ogres as more of a brutal, tribal race which honors strength and results. I see the Myr as a more advanced society, but one which is angry, in decline, and in need of purpose (an analogy would be Germany after WWI). Would your character rather conquer or destroy? Is your character proud or ashamed? Looking forward it looking back?

    I've always planned on making my DL an Ogre, and now that the racial passives have been announced, I'm even more stoked about it. The ogre strength and crit racials synergize very well with DL skills in my opinion. However, I can also see a benefit to the Myr racials if that sort of thing matters more to some players. It really comes down to what you like best, both thematically and in terms of play style.

    But for me it's going to be Ogre all the way. :)

    Thank y'all. After reading all the comments, and doing some thinking. I decided on Dark Mry (This was before the racials). Now, even after the racials have been release, I have decided to stay with Dark Mry, as they merge more with my character concept for my Dire Lord. I am pretty excited for the underwater breathing as well, as I have always enjoyed exploring underwater in All games I play. I feel like, just in our own planet, there is a lot left unexplored in the waters of many games to start out with. Thank y'all for y'allls input, it has been very helpful, and greatly apprectiated! :D
