At first glance, I wanted to choose either a Centaur or a Nephilim. Though after reading some back story, I found I liked the Elves a lot. Problem is, I don't want to be a mage. I want a character with good looking armor, and a sword as a weapon. I want to be effective like that and not gimped. Is that possible for Elves? I was thinking Elven Sentinel but I read that Sentinel's themselves are gimped professions. How about an Elven Crusader? Would that work? Will I be the oddball between other Crusaders or will I be capable to be as successful as them?
If I was to go Elven Crusader, what should my class be? Fighter or Healer? Remember that I mainly want to be a damage dealer, a guy on the frontlines slashing away at the enemies. Being a Crusader alone has some nice abilities for my teammates, though I don't want to miss out on things that I could gain in melee combat as a fighter for more team-helpful abilities like heals and buffs that a healer would get.
This whole thing is too confusing, so many options and not enough information. I just want to start playing but it might take a while before I even reach the character creation screen.
