    Orks get a bonus to melee, so they are a pretty logical choice. Female is the best obviously. You can rock about 40 magic encumberance and a nice saraccenia and do good damage if you just want to use melee and rays. Alfar would give you some extra protections for magic as well if you're going the heavy route.

    Ork females also have one of the best camera angles for melee while still having good reach.

    Human armor looks the coolest, so you get a confidence boost ;)

    Yeah, it's good, not the greatest. I like alfar and human for melee camera the best. Ork female though, their ranged camera is kinda OP cause AV just gave them the Ork Male 3rd person, either through mistake or neglect.

    I didn't vote but I do know when it comes to race gender in this game, just pick what you want to be and stick with it. There is no severe advantages, anyone can be good

    Basically if you lose a melee exchange with 15 ping, look at the palm of your hand and let someone slap you with it.

    All jokes aside, we all know ping is important in gaming. In Darkfall however hit-boxes become displaced or lag behind people with higher ping. So those with low ping see true hit-boxes and melt people running.

    Ping helps a lot with weapon swaps/transitions and sticky range, because of the low ping, your character is damn near actually right on top of the actual character model. Therefore you are actually easier to hit than someone with higher ping. But you get "increased melee reach". The person with lower ping actually to the naked eye has the truest of a hit box. Has nothing to do with how you see others.

    The best thing you can do with low ping as a Mage is swap back and forth from melee to Ray/fireball/eye rot range. And swap them constantly. You catching your oppenent off guard with these really fast swaps is hard to counter and will throw them off gaurd most of the time because of The speed at which you can do it.

    And on regards of what race to play, just play what feels smoother to you. Don't worry about passives. They matter very little now that they patched last.

    I explained that the best my red neck ass could hope you understand :p
