Why the fuck would you play gnomes or similar races?
I play small races mostly because they take up so little of the screen while still being in third person perspective, so I don't have any of my vision blocked. I also feel like I'm running faster.
I also find most of them cute.
Sometimes people enjoy the chibi proportions of the armor sets.
>I also find most of them cute.
A female gnome warrior beating the everliving shit out of Tauren, Orcs, and Undead is the best kind of juxtaposition and the only reason to play Alliance.
I'll pick those if it's something major, like in a Roguelike or whatever. Lately games have mostly been making races mostly an aesthetic thing. Not sure which I prefer. Either way, if it's just a minor little thing I pick which I like best aesthetically.
Asura best race
Killing people with a gnome character in WoW used to drive people nuts, like killed by a human was ok, but a gnome killing those "FOR THE HORDE" dudes always made them lose their shit. I guess it was fun for a while. Also, some people don't feel the need to self-insert.
Smaller size = illusion of running faster
Yes, they run at the same speed as every other character,but their smaller size makes it look more like they're hauling ass compared to everyone else.
It's dumb, but there you go.
Because Dwarves are pretty top tier in everything they inhabit
>Stout, strong, and hardy by nature
>highly value craftsmanship, industry, and facial hair
>can live damn near anywhere
>more often then not are on good terms with humans since we share so many traits
also the short stack booty
>wanting your escape racial to share a CD with your PVP trinket
>not wanting even more methods to escape
>not being an escape artist
I like shortstacks and height difference.
Short cute races and muscled giantess are both equally fantastic and let you stand out in a crowd of people who play default human.
>Why the fuck would you play gnomes or similar races?
Because it's fun, onii-chan.
I hate most shortstack races, but Asuras in GW2 were pretty rad desu.
Everyone gets so mad when you kill them. I can't count the number of times some idiot has broadcast his butthurt to the world about how everyone who plays Elins is a pedo because they tried to PK me and I killed their ass.
I find gnomes annoying because of their highpitched voices and always bringing up their size (i.e. "My you're a tall one!)
Conversely, goblins are sweet as fuck.
I played a taru in ffxi because you could go first person and get mithra upskirt
short races are the best races if the mmo has a first person cam
>in some games they look pretty good
>because playing at humans/elves/orcs is getting old
>they fit my personality type since i'm a fast talking, scatter brained engineer
>dat waifu material
The thread isn't just about gnomes dummy.
These fuckers were the best. Never seen a bad looking dog/cat.
They are still somewhat Egotistical, but at the same time they've been living in the sun for the past 200 years and lost so much they've been rather humbled. If you actually consider their lore, its all completely understandable.
not a footfag myself but there's plenty of other things on her i'd like to lick, ifyaknowwhatimsayin.
I always just play as the waifufag race.
In WoW it's a femnelf warrior, in Vindictus it's
Lynnand in Tera it's an Elin warrior.
>tfw when lets her hair down for the first time to bathe in front of you
Gnomes are fucking stupid though
>tfw have this set
Reasons i play gnomes or small races
unique in universe
Keep things fresh by being something i wouldn't normally play
I find it amusing when i beat the shit out of some mountain of muscle
Are you playing retail then my suggestion is to FUCKING STOP PLAYING
If it's a vanilla private server then you have a extra stealth level for nothing and the highest base agility in the game, stealth has a cool-down and then shadowmeld's utility is GODLIKE. Feign death in PVE, escape from fights in PVP.
>Blizz used to get complements for having the best art design
>Everything now is absolutely fucking awful
>They can't even into anatomy
Goblins are totally fucking sweet and prior to LNs like Re:Monster I feel are almost never given the fucking props they deserve.
There's no fucking epic Goblin Hero, and unfortunately even in cases like Re:Monster they usually tend to 'grow' into Orcs somehow or other.
Goblin Kingdom is shaping up to be a good LN, shame I can't find a sweet game to be a Gobbo in.
I want Blizzard to fix the damn Worgen already
If you're Assassination or Combat use it on CD to get an additional opener.
If you're playing Subtlety (with Subterfuge), use it to maximize your Find Weakness time.
>Normally Premeditation too
Boom, 13 free seconds of Find Weakness, welcome to 90 percentiles and topping logs.
>Why the fuck would you play gnomes or similar races?
Because gnomes are fucking cute
I'm on vanilla WoW. Shadowmeld is not usable in combat just like stealth, and with 5/5 camouflage, stealth is on a 5 sec cd, so stealth can be used instead of shadowmeld upon using improved gouge.
Escaping fights from PvP involve shadowmelding into stealth, but you could just use stealth depending on the cd of your stealth. Feign death in PvE?
I guess for a rogue it's a bit shit, but being a class without on-demand stealth I found it so fucking useful.
I used it as a healer in Nef fight to avoid threat from skeletons/dragon, while still being able to pop in and out to heal.
>Playing Alliance at all
>Not being a dindu nuffin
Orcs and Goblins, Niggers and Jews, same thing different name.
When I played WoW, I used short characters for thieves because they're better at hiding behind shit and harder to target/click on than bigger races in pvp since they're so tiny.
Also they're good to piss people off by making them laugh like a retard after you stun/kill someone
Well the pool we have is shit, and I'm glad Blizzard doesn't contribute to it by making uggo's.
>tfw you're too big and would probably split Jemma open
feels bad, man.
playing LoL and at cons according to that pictture
Because I love playing a tank. And nothing is better/cuter than a tiny guy tanking for the team.
if in game models were more like this. no one would complain.
Typically in good MMOs they have benefits larger races do not.
In DAoC Lurikeens (leprechauns) had incredibly high Dexterity (dodging, blocking, casting speed, parrying, half bow/dagger damage) and Quickness (attack speed) to make up for their terrible Strength and Constitution. Made excellent casters, stealthers and shield based tanks.
Also people get really mad for no reason at small races, so that's great too.
I dunno, I just tend to play small races. In tabletop I tend to play comic relief types, and races like gnomes or halflings fit that bill well.
gnomes are the coolest motherfuckers on earth/fantasy planet of your choice. i happen to think gear looks amazing on gnomes. i cant think of any other race more good guy bro tier.
