Default Race choice, same or diff now ?

I am going to make up a new, non twinked SK on the BB server. Been gone for about 2 years. Main diff I see is no Xp penalties anymore for race choice, and of course 2 new races, Frog, and Drakk. I have gone through the other race threads here, is anything new from the last few, or still basically the same ? the Frogs look cool and have great stats, the Drakk have great stats, but look well kinda sorry. Ogre still have chain speedo going on ? Stun immunity bypassed by magic high lvl ? Troll still have assless chaps ? Ikky still have armor issues at the lower lvls ? AC bonus still worth mentioning ? DE still the most overpopulated ? Gnome best old world faction, shortest to the ground ? Tinkering bout the only plus ? Humans cool catacombs, rare racial armors ?

And seriously, it's not like I didn't just answer this question at length maybe two weeks ago or anything...

There are AAs to reduce melee stuns, but ogres remain the only totally immune race when playing an SK. Troll still have assless chaps ? I have no idea what you're on about here. Ikky still have armor issues at the lower lvls ? AC bonus still worth mentioning ? They've long since tossed out the "No plate for iksar" rule. AC is always worth mentioning. DE still the most overpopulated ? I don't think anyone cares, or notices. Gnome best old world faction, shortest to the ground ? Tinkering bout the only plus ? Old world faction has become entirely moot. Humans cool catacombs, rare racial armors ? I have no idea what you're on about with the "rare racial armor" - if you mean the culturally smithed armor, no - it's no more rare than any other race's. As to the catacomes, I doubt anyone's been there (other than for the 1.0) in years. Long story short - every racial benefit can be ignored, bypassed, or replaced with items/aas/spells except three. Ogre stun immunity, drakkin breath weapon, and iksar ac bonus. You're playing a tank, so the choice should be painfully obvious from those three choices as to which is the min/max "best" answer.

Other than those 3 which are minimal gains, the only real difference anymore is the graphic. so...

If you roll drakkin, emoknight will feel all the more appropriate next year.
