Preferred Race?

    I may kinda take back what I said earlier about my Bard being a Human, now that I look at all the race/class restrictions. A Dark Myr Bard (wailing siren type) seems interesting, as well as a jolly Halfling Bard that sings drinking songs in a tavern haha. I'm still not ruling out Human, but the other options seem slightly more interesting. I like to only have one Human on my character select screen, and that one Human is usually a class that slightly resembles me in real life. And it's usually just a minor alt, because I still think Humans are boring lol. Recreating myself kinda defeats the purposes of escapism, but it can be fun sometimes too. Anyway, since I am kinda like a both a monk and a bard IRL, I'm leaning more toward having my Pantheon Human be a monk (also because I want to see how VR handles the Monk class) and then figuring out which is better for my bard - Halfling or Dark Myr.

    I am not sure but I want to say I believe that at least their ancestors do. I believe their ancestors were heavily involved with life under water where the current lineage live more so on land? I don't know, I could be wrong...

    You are correct.  They were water breathers, but Syronai leveraged her immortality to give them lungs to breathe on land and legs to walk =>

    Halfling Bard

    didnt see that one coming and ended up being a happy surprise when I saw it listed.

    That will most likely be my main when bards are finally released.

    I won't main a bard but if I were to have one I would need the character customization to be a little more advanced. I need to be able to make a short fat halfling. So fat his eyes are squinty and his mouth looks like it's always being stuffed with a pastery. Then I need Bards to be able to play a tuba.

    very tough choice between a Myr (sound kind of pirate like), and Halfing (stereotypical).

    Not sure if I will main a bard when they are in, but I will definitely be making a Halfling Bard once I can.
