    Man or High Elf?

    Hi everyone.

    I want to roll a Captain for end-game content and I'm wondering which race confers better benefits.

    As far as I can tell, here is the list of pros and cons:

    High Elf:
    • +5% Light damage bonus
    • +1% Disease & Poison Resistance
    • +10% Out of Combat Run Speed bonus


    Man:

    • Nearly 1k BPE bonus at max level
    • +5% max morale buff to the fellowship; 10m duration, 30m cooldown.
    • +5% incoming healing


    I'm not including things that both races have or that aren't too relevant to end-game, like virtue bonuses that anyone can grind, the sword damage bonus that both races have, etc.

    Experienced captains, which set would you choose?

    Personally I can’t stand the blade of Elendile high elf animation. Seems way too weak and sad.

    Man for the win.

    My bad. the 2k heal Trait from killing the downs tribesmen is great at low levels.

    I hated the high elf intro and except for hunter (light oil) and mini the light bonus isn’t worth much imho.

    The +5% incoming healing Bonus is the best you can get.

    So for Maxing i would pick then Human.

    Most of my Captains (i play) are Humans @115, @75, @60
    I have also 2 small HE, because of other animations.

    The problem is: it is added to mastery bonus, which makes it very weak.

    Trapper of Foes needs better tools to fulfill it's supporting(CC and offensive debuffs) and DoT role.
