Can we get one please? How about as a barbarian, add a Battlerager tree to give barbs a bit of a boost as they've lost some mojo lately.

My wanting to make a TYWA maul build has nothing to do with this request :)

It's straight out racism. 3 and a half elf races. 3 and 2 half humans. Hell even 2 gnomes.
Do you know what kind of people choose to play smelly elfs?

Help the higher class of players by giving us more Dwarf options.

Aren't halflings and gnomes some sort of dwarf sub-species? Seems more even if you look at it that way.

Elves are an elder race and have been around a while, so there are bound to be lots of them. Some lore even reckons orcs and goblins spin off the elf dna chain.
They are a bit more attractive than dwarves too. Dwarves are probably a bit more pure, though.

Humans are just fecund.

Not fat enough.

I'd be in favor of the Battlerager iconic

Gotta be unarmed specialists though and have really sharp edges and pointy bits on their armor.

How many base classes are left to be combined with a race to be made iconic?

As much as I would like another dwarf subrace, even duergar if I could get that power-up they have where they instantly grow like chia-pets, I am less than thrilled with the class/race combos thus far.

Sun elf cleric? Worshiping a non-elven deity? Absurd. Better option would have been ranger or wizard for high elves.
Aasimar ranger? Silliness. Would have been better for cleric, favored soul, or obviously paladin.
Deep Gnome wasn't such a stretch, I concede that one but Purple Dragon Knights aren't even a real race or sub-race.
Bladeforged are just weird - LG paladins worshiping a LE deity?! Better if they had been martial artificiers, or fighters.
Shadar Kai... I don't know what to say. Rogue fits but SdK are dreadful.

I'd be a little nervous with their choices we might end up with a Duergar Sorcerer or Bard. No offense to the devs, I'm sure they make money off of those +1 Hearts of Wood, but I can't say I'm pleased with purchasing a race then having to purchase a heart to make it right.

I'd much rather start at level 1 and not have "fix it later".

Thibbledorf Pwent?! With an infection/bleeding guard ability?

Dwarves? Higher? lolwut? They're the third-shortest race in the game.

An iconic dwarf would be fine, though

Duergar barbarian seems most logical, since we already have Drow and Deep gnomes, Duergar should be made a playable race too...

Bring on the Battlerager; Heavy armor barbarian with guard effects, unarmed, lots of bleed. I need my inner Pwent sated. (Bonus points if I can go post-Gauntlgrym Pwent.)

I was trying to avoid spoilers! And bah, you'll only stop me for so long... Sooner or later you'll all be vampires, yaun-ti, or blackguards if I have my way!
