Yeah, looked that up sounds like a good option. My wife really wants catfolk, she says she will play with me more often if they add Catfolk!

Personally though, playing as a Kenku sounds like it could be fun.

But I voted for Yuan-ti, since I was one in a PnP campaign a long time ago.

What? Wouldn't they have like a base of -4 Charisma, 2 Intelligence, and 3 wisdom until points are placed?

Why does everyone always forget about shifters? Hello? Eberron?

To be fair, I'm fine with races now. The only things left are basically monsters or animal/humanoid hybrids now and a campaign is almost always jumping the shark when that starts to happen, unless its a monster campaign anyway.

Would rather see class and race enhancements polished to perfection quite honestly.

You left out Aasimar! *Scornfully* How could you? :p Seriously though, Aasimar are one of my favorite races to play in PnP if only to describe my character as celestially beautiful.

Examples of what Aasimar could possibly look like in DDO:

Shifter I hope never to see any of your list but then I didn't want to see the worst d&d race ever added dragonboring

Including other would defeat one of the two purposes of this post, I'm wanting to make another of these posts that includes the races that are asked for here.

Voted Catfolk, though I would specifically like tabaxi.

Also shocked not to see Aasimar in the list. Would like Aasimar, Thri-Kreen, Tiefling and Yuan-ti all added, among many others!

As someone who has always found the Forgotten Realms *dramatic pause* unmemorable, I'd like to see extraplanar races added along with the Planescape setting. That's probably just a pipe dream at this point, though...

It's a tough call between staying true to my past support of Kobolds**, or something else.

However, if they ever jump the shark and go Furry, I'm all about rabbits packing heat...

I couldn't play a rabbit, even one packing two heavy repeater's simultaneously. But... I might have some comedic fun playing a Space Hamster. Go for the eyes Boo! :p

A total of just 17 votes shows that the playerbase just doesn't care anymore!

As the Devs have introduced Racial Past Lives though I'm guessing we're done with Iconic races and therefore I want to see:

1) Kobold {+2 Dex/Cha, -2 Str/Wis}
2) Kalashtar {+2 Wis, No Penalties}
3) Hobgoblin {+2 Str/Con, -2 Int/Cha}

If we are to get more Iconics I want to see:
1) Mountain Dwarf Cleric of Moradin {+2 Str/Wis, -2 Cha/Dex}
2) Sylvan Elf Ranger {+2 Str/Dex, -2 Cha/Con}

I believe this debate has been settled. There was a video Cordovan made a few months ago in which a few of the Devs where chatting, including Severlin.

Severlin said Aasimar and Tieflings were likely to be the next races. I'll bet they're released towards the end of this year.

Tiefling: you are hated by every other race of eberron -2 to all starting stats.

Why would we play the race we are fighting a war against? They are also a "evil" race and we are playing as "hero's". Kinda contradictory don't you think?

No Kobolds, ever.

I'd sooner see them add playable Panda bears then Kobolds. What is it with Kobolds in this game anyway? Give it a rest already, the joke is dead, it's not funny and hasn't been since 2006.

I don't understand the aversion to Kobolds. We already have Half-orcs and Lizardmen in the game. We have Kobold trainers in the Marketplace. Kobold is so obviously the next place to go at this point. It would add another niche race for people who want to play them.

It's not a joke at all to me. I really want to play a Kobold Shaman and I think the best way to get that to happen is to get Kobolds added to the game. Even if it has to be a Kobold Druid I'll deal with it.

I'd even let them add Panda bears if that's the price of adding Kobolds also. It would be offensive to me from a lore perspective but who am I to stand in the way of adding a race that other people might see as fun?

As the Devs have introduced Racial Past Lives though I'm guessing we're done with Iconic races and therefore I want to see:


Iconics with Ravenloft would be a continuation of Iconics with Shadows Over Wheloon and it would be for the same reason: to allow new players to buy Ravenloft and play it. I expect Iconics to be included with the Ravenloft x-pac for this reason.

Tieflings. Bonus points if the females look anything like the art for them in the Monster Manual. I'd play a character that looked that hot even if it would gimp my build.

Kalashtar if it were an option. +2 Int Charisma and Wisdom, -2 Strength Dexterity and Constitution would be an interesting play on it. Would need to be accompanied by a psionics system of course.

I think that's a pipe dream. I think devs mentioned before that creating a new psionic system (like a spell system) which we are already using spell points is a lot of work. New spells means new systems, models for the art... and you can't just put like 2 or 3 in there if you are talking about the whole psionics tree. Then, you also need to add psychic Warriors, Psions, Soulknife, Wilder etc... 2020? may be not even then since that's only 3 years away. You are talking more like DDO 2 or another expansion like kind of work.

Also, the mind domain has spells like Brain Spider, Probe thoughts, etc. How can players (PCs) read the minds of NPCs and monsters on dialogues and fights?
It has to be a new system. Also, Psychic Turmoil and Greater Psychic Turmoil that drains Psionic Spell Points away... like in the Lolth fight, it was not very fun. Also, how would one implement Telepathic Bond? We already have the voice chat and Discord voice chat in game. If its against monsters, better than charm as in the pet system? then another system's work.

Have devs said what the base heroic level for Ravenloft will be? The original module (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravenloft_%28module%29) was low-level (5-7). If the expansion follows suit (as well as ToEE and Slave Lords), then I would expect it to be low-level too and there's no need for Ravenloft-specific Iconics. OTOH, if they're modeling the entire setting and not just those original modules, then I suppose they can make it whatever level they want.

Goblins or Kobolds. Something obviously weaker (no attempt to balance vs. current races) to give players an option to challenge themselves.

Nothing like running around with a "weak" race that still leads the kill count.

I've been waiting for Aasimars. I think Tieflings should come out first, being far more popular and well-known than Aasimars. Tieflings would be incredible too, especially if they included the Winged variant. After Tieflings, I would LOVE to see Aasimars.

3-Kobold
4-Catfolk
5-Genasi
6-Goliath
7-Kenku
8-Triton
9-Yuan-Ti

Then if I did not mistake, I'd read the roof on Produser's letter of 2017,Which would include Aasimar and Tiefling But that the latter had encountered a problem with the tail model to be fitted on the armor, this will also apply to the helmets on the Tiefling. So I strongly believe that Aasimar and Tiefling Are next playable Race on DDO Universe.
I think one will make it iconic while the other will make it heroic starting from level 1 and I already have an idea of what it could be...

I totally would love to have tieflings. But the 3.5 version of them, not the 4e+ version where they basically are hellboy with a tail.

But Catfolk, Shifters, Changelings and the like would be lovely too.

I think a lot of players just don't care about eberron. The fact that the game has robots is a turn-off to some. I like swords and horses, not steam punk.

I think it has to be tiefling and aasimar. Rounds out the racial PLs nicely with str and wis respectively. I'd like to see some planescape content with them.

edrein

Tiefling and Aasimar are pretty much guaranteed at this point. I'd personally love to get a yuan-ti pureblood as a race. It'd be an unique racial enhancment tree; certainly some poison based goodness, a smidge of caster goodness. And they'd certainly have a rather nice potential for an iconic with a Stormcaller of Zehir style tree; being either a cleric base with lightning SLAs/boosts or the vice versa with a Lightning Sorc with Clerical bonuses.

I forgot that the druid spell Reincarnate already shows us their racial stats:
Yuan-ti Incarnate: +2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom, -2 Strength, -2 Constitution

In korthos, all quests are about defeating villagers and their out-of-town mercenary hires while cultivating relations with cultists (who you get to eat).

3BC has you take over a beachead.
Later, in the Fens, you get to help a demon defeat some rebels and those annoying, persistent mercs.
