I hate em too.

Syp made a great post (par for the course).
People may find this ironic, but I agree. Elves are the WORST racial option for any class, ever. Most of the time, I would much, much rather play a Human. It’s ironic considering that the only classes I have played seriously in this game have been elves. When the game first came out, I wanted to play a melee healer, and I was set up with a guild that decided to go destro before-hand, so I was stuck with the disciple (groan!). Then I tried out the Blackguard because he was supposed to be the offensive tank (/face_palm). Through it all though, I wanted to play an archer, but I hate, HATE pet classes… hello Shadow Warrior (mumble).
Yes, elves are always these pompous, self-important, snobby, elitist, tree-hugging bastards. They live forever, so they must know better than anyone else. My hatred is seething even more these last few weeks because I just finished reading Brisngir, the third book in the Eragon series. I swear to God, this young author probably has elf-porn that he strokes it to every evening hanging up on his walls. These books are so full of elf-love, that he actually makes the protagonist go from being a human, to what is essentially a half-elf! Yes, through magic, the hero becomes more like the all-powerful elves! Sorry, tangent over.
In WAR, it’s pretty much the same thing. Warhammer lore has the elves all lounging around for eternity, playing with a sword, or a magic, or a bow, being better than everyone else at it. Woohoo, luck at us, we’re tall, skinny, and love nature. If this were the real world they’d be driving hybrids and sipping latte’s they paid $5 for, and talking about how Suzie just looked awful the other night. They’re the high-school “pretty-people” that so few people liked because of their vapid, brain-dead self delusion.
Dammit, blood-pressure rising…must…stop…post.
