    While I do not plan to main a monk at this time, I will likely alt one and it would be a Skar :)

    There is no way for members to make actual polls. There used to be polls, but they were misused. (See and But if you're curious, this works.

    I will mostly likely have a Human Monk alt.

    If Skar get an aesthetic redesign to be half as cool as an Iksar, then that's where I'll go. Until then, I've been heavily considering skipping playing a monk. I suppose if I do roll one, it will be an Archai.

    Definitely going to be a Dark Myr monk. Monks are my favorite fantasy archetype and the Dark Myr are merfolk which is badass and rare to see as a playable race in MMOs.

    Yeah Dark Myr is tempting and i agree, i think they are gona be a rare pick. Tempting to say the least!

    For me itll really come down to stats and looks of the models.

    I really like the Myr as a race, but they don't really fit my image of a monk. I just love their backstory as a race so much. Maybe if their stats are top pick for monks and their models are amazing.

    Archai seem really cool for monks. I generally like smaller character models instead of super beefy and buff models, so I'm really excited to see the female archai and what they look like.

    I'm having such a hard time trying to convince myself to play monk over rogue, but if I play monk it'll probably be archai.

    Probably up to the racials, but Arachai or Myr, for looks .. since this is faction based i dont really want to deal with everyone hating me with Skar, like Iskar back in the day.

    I have plans to play Human, but after Beta that may change. I don't forsee many racial differences so i might just stick with human.

    As someone who played a froglok brusier for years i assume myr could be a nice fit little dissapointed the monk races are so restrictive dwarf monk would have been awsome

    I will be an Archai because... well glowing!  Unless there's a change and they allow Ogres to be monks, then I'll be an Ogre monk because kung fu Ogres are the best.

    Still debating on playing a monk or rogue, but if I do roll a monk it will most certainly be Archai.

    Skar = no

    Archai = No

    Dark Myr, only if their passive is water breath

    Human = most likely

    Being as there *are* very few specifics at this time, and so much could change between now and release, it has hard to pin one down.

    However, I am leaning towards a Human Monk. The whole "hated by everyone", "dark and moody" thing is just fatiguing for me right now. Just hope I can get him to look Asian, which would be cool...

    My method for choosing race seems to be different than most. I want to have at least one char from each race. So I made a list of all the classes I wanted to try (Happily I managed to come up with 9 classes), picked my preference for the 2 classes I want to main (Dire Lord and Shaman) and then divided up all the remaining races into the remaining classes.

    Admittedly, if the actual racial abilities turn out to be very useful through the life of the chars and not just at the lower levels, I may throw the whole list out and start over!

    Anyway, my methods resulted in my Monk being Archai.
