Race Selection

This is the most important part of signing up. Pick your race carefully because you will be stuck with the race you choose in sign-up for the remainder of the current round. Each race has its advantages and disadvantages, and many races have their own, unique special abilities. Below you can see a table of races and their attributes. Clicking on the name of a race takes you to a more detailed description of that race. If you are new to AW, Baleenar or Trankoor is probably the best option for you, especially if you don't really have connections to other players or alliances in the game.
