The Daily Grind: Are there any MMO bestial races you wish you could play?


Yes, Embers Adrift, I would totally play as a war gecko if I had half the chance. Forget your weird emo obsession with darkness; you should totally focus on playable lizards as your big gameplay hook.

Of course, that’s just my rolling desire to see MMOs sport more interesting racial choices talking. I’m sick and tired of the same-old humanoid variants — I want some genuine weirdness on my character creation screen! So often I see a really cool bestial race in the game and think, “Yes, I would definitely roll up a giant polar bear warrior in Guild Wars 2 or a murloc in World of Warcraft. Why caaaaaan’t I?” And then I go sulk and pout and act generally unbecoming for a middle-aged MMO journalist.

Thank goodness you’re more collected. But perhaps you’ve had the same thoughts? Are there any MMO creatures or beasts you wish would be an option to play?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
