Yeah, but so do Dark Elves, Gnomes, Ogres, Trolls, and Erudites... the race doesn't matter as much as the person who plays it.

Iskar's ROCK in general, but yea it does depend on who is playing. Plus being an Shadowknight is just cool as well.

Thing you've got to remember is that Iksar get an AC bonus, they regen, and they level like slugs compared to most other races. They tend not to be able to wear plate armor, which can be a downside for most plate classes untill they get to Vellious level gear or higher.

Personally? I think a lizard is probably the best race to go if you're power-gaming. If not... well, hell, a gnome SK rocks : )

If you're talking about monks... no contest, lizards kick ass.

Race will definately matter if you plan on being below 50 for any amount of time or if you will be working with equipment that you come by from normal means and not super twink gear. If thats the case I can tell you to most definately steer clear of erudites. They are low in everything that makes a melee character a melee. Hell even gnomes have better starting melee stats. I of course didnt realize how bad it was til I was already past 50

Iksar, the choice of doods ever since droods fell out of favor.

The only bad thing about being an Iksar SK (unless they fixed this and i did not notice) is that they can't wear a lot of the older plate armor.

SKs suck, shitty spells till higher levels. Its my opinion so it does not matter. If you chose a SK, just consider a couple things. You going to solo? Or u looking for be group based? You want to level real fast? or take your time? Leveling wise, the order from slowest to fastest: Troll, Iskar, Ogre, Eurdite, Human, Dark Elf, Ghome. Due to all the extra bonuses the first 3 listed have above the other races they level lots slower. If you plan on soloing alot, HP regen might be a good thing. They also have more sta, which gives you more HP in the long run. Think it was calcuated to be averaging 600hp more then a human sk would have if both were level 60.

Good luck in your endeavors.

Go to the "Race Discussion" area.

Read until your head falls off.

To summarize for you: Early in an SK's career, troll/ikky regen is super-duper, especially for the SK soloer.

After you hit 50, though, race doesn't seem to mean very much, especially when/if you get into a raid guild. At this point, the only important thing is to look "kewl", and DE's win that hands down.

yeah SKs suck so bad, never ever ever play one. Hell who wants to play a class that can solo, pull, tank, train people you dont like and have the best look.

adom YOU suck, not SKs.

Muz - Wazzzzuppp! Long time no see!

Adom - Think you got yer info crossed. Humans (in just about any class) level faster than any other race, last time I tested.

And SK's as a class aren't bad at all, really. We're just different.
