    Kind of hard to say what I would never play, because my tastes are ever-changing and what is unthinkable today might become a main tomorrow.
    Traditionally though, I've never really been into elves (with the exception of female dark elves, whom are sexy as hell).

    I kind of think the opposite. I like making my casters humans for reason; because they feel like a more down to earth option for a high fantasy magical class. Of all the other races that can be robed casters, all but one other are arrogant buttholes. They're also not bogged down by the low STR and STA the other caster races tend to have. I started playing here as a human wizard, now playing a human enchanter, and regret nothing. xD

    I could never play a Troll Beastlord because no one can replace @Bum

    I could never play a Barbarian Shaman because no one can replace @Kagatob

    I could never play an Ogre mainly because of the diaper rash. #chafingsucks

    I don't think I could ever play a high elf or wood elf anything. I've always loved monster races, never been fond of elves. I like dark elves though. They also seem fairly popular throughout EQ's history, and I'm a rebel.
    Trolls are my favorite race, Troll master race.

    human necro bloodsabre guild is probably the most atmospheric and cool starting area in the game. I think all race/class combos can be cool so long as you create a little backstory for them in your own mind.

    That is a cool area actually. Haven't checked it out in years. Think I will now again.

    Played a great many different things, and have been loaned many different characters, as well. However, I do not believe I ever leveled up an Enchanter or Troll.

    Ogres, Trolls, and Barbs.

    Ogres are just the most ugly thing I've ever laid eyes on.

    Trolls run like they forgot to wipe, and still may have a turtle head poking out. (also ugly)

    And Barbs run with their arms waaaay too stiff and close to their sides, as well as running like they got a corn cob stuck up their butts.

    These complaints are probably only because I'm a 3rd person view player though, and I also only play with old models. New model ogre is an improvement to the old, but still not good enough since Luclin models bring their own eye bleeding aspects.

    Would play, and have played any class though. Magician probably my least fav overall to play though.

    Haters gonna hate.

    I prefer to not play short race characters personally but due to tinkering, Wall look, Plains pebble imbue and leatherfoot haversacks I happen to have a few that I begrudgingly play.

    Among my menagerie of character I think the only races not represented are Troll and Dwarf. Not really any hatred against Trolls for any particular reason they just happen to have a fairly limited class selection. Maybe I’ll make another Troll Beastlord on this server because it’s the only server with the classic gator pet.

    My beef is that u haven't installed the texture fix that gives everyone colored boots instead of black.

    *Edit. OMG those knees are sharp!
