    Default New Playable Race : MINOTAUR!

    Yeah... I want to play a guy like this...



    EDIT: NOTE - Awesome photo is from shareplz!

    Nadgers shared this info showing that it is possible...

    Ok Devs make it Happen!
    - Balance it out with the other races.
    - Give us some cool animations for the Charge attack that sends our enemies flying.
    - Add in some gore damage.
    - And give us the enhancement that if we are playing cleric that we never need to buy Bull Dung for our spells (Minotaurs should have a natural endless supply)

    So who's wrong? DDO has HO as bigger than WF, but that image has it the other way around.

    Also, they forgot Aasimar, forget Kobolds, Minos, and Smurfs, I want Aasimars and Tieflings for my next playable race.

    That was just to tell where did this guy prolly got the Minotaur idea, that's a 4e chart, and Minos are playable there

    And yeah, Horcs shouldn't be bigger than WFs, or even orcs

    Eberron has a precedence for something like minotaur's. They could add shifters which are a race with various feral abilities. I did a write up of how they could be implemented in ddo here.

    The Gorebrute would basically be what you are asking for, and fits within the Eberron core races.

    Why not sometimes crossbreeds are larger than the parent breeds such is the case with a liger

    Yeah Mino is a cool race. I remember playing a ridiculously uber Mino Dreadnaught in NWN back in the day. It just tore through mobs. Unfortunately its base stats are probably too much for DDO. If I remember correctly it has +8 str and +4 con, which would be terribly overpowered without additional balancing. One can dream though.
    First they laughed at me when I made a drow rogue.
    Then they laughed at me when I went dex based.
    Next they laughed at me when I went pure.
    Guess who's laughing now?

    Oh god, half-orcs aren't crossbreads

    It's not even certain that half-orcs are trully human/orcs

    Some people say they're just mutant little orcs that got discarted because of being weaker than full orcs. But were also more cunning and smarter than their savage counterarts (Half-orcs don't suffer a -2 WIS score, orcs do)
    There's just plenty illustrations and statistics from the creators of D&D regarding their avearage size. Half-orcs were never big, they were never "ligers". They were dirty little half-bloods hated by everyone. On AD&D they were smaller than humans.

    If that feline breed is gonna be the base for how big monsters are supposed to be on D&D, then Half-giants and Half-ogres... wow, just... wow...

    By the way, one of the strong reasons for Half-orcs being that big in DDO is just because of this HUGE Warcraft/hammer influence we're seeing all the time. D&D is losing it's identity, and that's just wrong, man

    Playable minotaurs in 3-3.5e were:
    The monster class from savage species. (uses the original monster)
    The animal humanoids also from savage species (this one is fairly lame, but effectively minotaur)
    The tauric template from MM. (makes you a minotaur obviously, this is kind of your basic option)
    The half-minotaur from dragon mag. (is a minotaur, like half-human, half-bull. this gives large size)
    The minotaur from dragonlance. (is a minotaur and has level adjustment 0 and tall but medium size)
    Not sure what version of minotaur is in the Eberron books.

    However, get in line. Gnome elders and kobold ladies first.
