Everquest Racial Anatomy Comparisons (Source: 10th Anniversary Commemorative Book)

There were originally 12 playable races at the release of EverQuest. The Ruins of Kunark expansion added the Iksar race, making 13. The Froglok and Vah Shir races will likely never come to the Project 1999 servers, as they were released in later expansions.

Experience Modifiers

To view a list of experience requirements for all class/race combinations, see this Sortable Matrix.

Faction Alignment

A brief explanation:

  • Races that are Good can typically enter other Good cities without being attacked.
  • Races that are Evil can typically enter other Evil cities without being attacked.
  • Neutral races can typically enter any city, and Good/Evil races can typically enter theirs.
  • Iksar are hated by every race, and other races will likely be attacked upon entering their city.
  • There ARE other factors, including Deity and Class choice, completed quests, etc.

* Listed below are all of the innate (non-skill) racials: *

Barrel Roll

Dwarves have a unique jumping graphic, to see a demonstration watch this video. It is purely cosmetic.

Frontal Stun Immunity

Ogres cannot be stunned from the front, which gives them a great advantage over other races.

  • Enemy attacks can still push you backwards, which will interrupt your spell casting.
  • Tip: You can stand in a corner to avoid being pushed back.

Increased Armor Class

Iksar start with a +15 AC bonus (+17 if they are a Warrior) over other races, which scales with level. However, they cannot wear plate armor until the Velious expansion.

Increased Consumption Rate

Barbarians, Halflings, Ogres, and Trolls all consume food and drink slightly faster than other races.

Increased HP Regeneration

Both Iksar and Trolls have higher HP regeneration rates (per tick):

  • Level 01-19: 4 sitting, 2 feigned, 2 standing
  • Level 20-49: 6 sitting, 2 feigned, 2 standing
  • Level 50: 8 sitting, 2 feigned, 2 standing
  • Level 51-55: 12 sitting, 8 feigned, 6 standing
  • Level 56-59: 16 sitting, 12 feigned, 10 standing
  • Level 60: 18 sitting, 14 feigned, 12 standing

Comparatively, these are the HP regeneration rates (per tick) for all other races:

  • Level 01-19: 2 sitting, 1 feigned, 1 standing
  • Level 20-49: 3 sitting, 1 feigned, 1 standing
  • Level 50: 4 sitting, 1 feigned, 1 standing
  • Level 51-55: 5 sitting, 3 feigned, 2 standing
  • Level 56-59: 6 sitting, 4 feigned, 3 standing
  • Level 60: 7 sitting, 5 feigned, 4 standing

A "tick" happens every 6 seconds (server side).

  • It does not matter whether you are sitting or standing between seconds 1 and 5, only the 6th second.

Infravision

Slightly improved night vision, not as good as the Dark Elf's Ultravision.

Ultravision

Extremely improved night vision, better than Infravision.
