I always go Nature Godlike for Druids for Theme and the fact that it's super easy to self-buff to get the Godlike PL bonus - though generally this is for party builds and not solo builds.

One comment here: if you want to play a Shifter this is probably not a good idea. Giving up helmets means giving up Survivor's Tusks, which is the best Shfiter accessory and the only Soulbound item Shifters can fully benefit from. Shifters also don't constantly use active abilities, which are what benefit from Power Level. 

 

Fair enough. I never play shifters, only nukers/healers.

Orlans always remind me of hamsters so I have a hard time making a MC as a hamster...I mean an Orlan.  But maybe I have to get over my bias and play as a female orlan MC and romance Tekehu, but he'd better bring the duct tape!!!

Hamsters? Those have no visible ears. You mean squirrels I presume?

Favorite for RP: Pale Elf since I never got over that "long white hair is cool" phase of the late '90s/early 2000s.

Favorites for stats/bonuses: Hearth Orlan and Nature Godlike.

That is not a hamster either.

 

But it looks like an Orlan all right. :)

I go for roleplay more than the racial bonuses. I'm quite happy with the fact that they are mainly meant as flavouring. 

 

So now I'm a boreal dwarf. And the very selective and rare criteria they have, actually makes me appreciate it more when it pops up in the combat log.

If you play a kiter it's a really good pick. :)
