    Torn between Captains and Wardens, and Men and High Elves

    I have a warden who is level 34 but kinda got bored from him for some reason (mainly because mobs died before I could build my 2nd gambit) so I mained a cappie. I currently have a 38 Man Captain and I really enjoy him, I tanked 3mans pretty easily, I find the DPS quite well (what's with people crying that caps are one of the worst dps, 2nd only to guard), of course nothing too much but it is sufficent, I didn't try healing a lot but it probably is fine though.
    So actually nothing is wrong with my cappy. But when I see a warden, the icon catches my eye, then the cool shield, then the spear, the javelin. It all looks cool, especially when you're a captain that is stuck with a 2h only. I also find the "lore" of the wardens nice, protects places, travels fast. An agile melee fighter that is not a coward (I'm looking at you, burgs!) but gameplay-wise, as far as I know they are in a very ###### spot right now, they can't properly tank, their DPS is not top notch, and of course no buffs/debuffs. Cappy shines at all of these mentioned except the DPS (which, still I think is good but im only level 38 yet). So I'm torn between the "cool" class and the "practical" class.
    And as for the races; Everytime I see a High Elf, I'm like "woah this guy is tall, he sure looks huge on that horse and his animation is very cool" so I want to load up a High Elf but I really do not like the rather "feminine" posture, physique and voices of the male elves and high elves. And yet I find them somewhat cool. Do you see how torn I am right now The race of Man is fine, your character looks like a man, sounds like a man, all is nice.. until a high elf comes near me and I look 1,5 meters tall. On horseback it only get worse. But the running and especially the walking animations of High Elves look a bit weird.

    So should I stick to my "practical" way of Man Cappy, or go for the "cool" idea of a Warden as a man of high elf. See I can't say if the Man or the High Elf is "cool" really, really torn.

    Not all those who wander are lost

    I recently started a High Elf character because after seeing the animations on YouTube I had to have one. Now I am a male but I decided to play a female HE alt because they are quite beautiful and to hear her yell in Quenya is just too cool. Certainly no regrets though they are fairly pricey. I would do another without hesitation. I have a Man Champ and that is fun too but his yells are somewhat juvenile sounding to me.

    Seeing as you havnt played any class to the point of even being 1/3 of level cap I would say you having an opinion on anything about it dps would be the furthest thing from even being close to accurate. Play a Captian anywhere near capped in average gear and you will understand why their dps "sucks"...

    Captain and Warden are vastly different playstyles

    warden is great solo average in fellowship

    captain is great in fellowship average in solo

    even though Captain is a heavy, he's not strictly Melee so Either race will do

    Warden favors agility with favors an elf
    “Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.”? J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

    Captains aren't actually stuck with 2h weapons - even if that is often the best choice.
    They can use 1h weapon + shield just fine. Including spears, though swords are usually a better choice - but that goes for wardens as well.

    If you want to play group content later on you should stay with the cappy. You have to be a a really good warden to be useful. No offence but a main warden as a first char could be frustrating later on.

    (my main is a warden so no hate on the warden but it's exhausting now and then)

    I agree with the last post, if you are planning to participate in group content, I would recommend going with Cappy. Its simply the more versatile class that is/was consistently useful in every raid and 6-man fight. On the other hand Warden is going back and forth between being viable and being useless in past 2-3 years, though the dps is looking pretty good now after some class changes. Would still go with Cappy if I had to pick one
