    Ogre, preferably. However, if I cannot quickly get to the Dark Myr city to play with my wife, I will have to go Dark Myr.

    I really enjoy ogres and this is usually one of the only classes they get.  So ogre it is.

    Ogre. Dark myr would be a cool second choice.

    Not yet knowing how much of a difference there will be between races abilities/stats or the mechanics of the Dire Lord, it is hard for me to decide.  I say that because the current class description says something about the DL utilizing their own blood to fuel spells.  If that means that they consume their own health pool, and if Ogre has a naturally larger HP, then I will likely go the path of more effect.  I played a DE SHD in EQ and loved when I could spam those precious lifetaps nearly three times as much as an Ogre (effectively giving me more HP and DMG than the Ogre SHD especially since the plate gear was heavy with STR/STA and the cap at one point was like 255 for a long time).  Without spells (mana in EQ) the SHD was a very weak warrior.  So as I said, depending on the mechanic of the class I will likely be Dark Myr or Ogre... or maybe even Skar.  What if the Skar has some mechanic that increases their damage as they take damage?!

    It's too early for me to decide :)

    I'll have to know what effect race plays and learn a bit about the class before deciding.

    I will definitely play something different in testing, so that the race/class will be new to me at launch.

    Normally Dark Elf would be my first choice. As we don't have them I am leaning towards Dark Myr. They seem very cool.

    Once the game has a bit more polish ill make a decision and stick with it. So much will be changed in the next several months.

    I will probably play Dark Myr's largely as I prefer an evil and more challenging leveling experience, but it also depends on the racial bonuses. IE, if Ogre gets frontal stun immunity or something OP like that, obviously, Ogre only for any serious tank. Mix/maxing has a large part to do with optimizing for raiding (playstyle choice).

    I agree with you Rouge, racial abilities are such a huge determining factor in the efficiency of your character if they are implemented to have any significant effect on gameplay. I understand people who want to play a race/class combo for their preference but it's hard to be a top tier player in your class if you have a significant disadvantage based on your race.

    I'm still hoping gnomes make it onto the playability list of DL's, but that's prolly wishful thinking :)

    I ususally go Dark Elves if possible, like Rengrave above.  The closest thing for Pantheon appears to be the Dark Myr and that's probably what my Dire Lord will be.  I enjoy playing the evil/KOS classes in games (well, most of our guild does.)

    I really liked playing a Iksar Shadowknight in EQ. It almost seems like the Skar race are gonna be the new Iksar of Pantheon. The names are practically the same. What better way to play an evil class with an evil race.

    I am a fellow SK player as well but leaning towards Dark Myr. Of course will wait and see how important race is once we get more information.
