I chose Kerra, seemed to be a pretty good balance in stats and i've always wanted to play one.

Dwarf is the only way to go!  I still get chuckles watching Brega do his spin kicks.

I started off Gnome, but then settled on Half Elf.  Decent balance of stats, and Great Look.

Kerra, fits the bruiser class in looks, mentality and stats - what more could you possibly ask for ?

The purpose of a tank is to hold a mobs attention, to take the beating while the rest of the group lays it to rest. In groups of 4 to 6, we take on mobs that are MUCH tougher than use individually.Traditional, heavy armor tanks will, and should, always make the best tanks. They will get more often than we will but heavy plate should reduce the actual damage taken by a large amount. Heavy armor tank don’t plan on not getting hit, they plan on getting hit, surviving it and returning the favor. The heavy tanks should also have more hit points as well.As a Bruiser with no armor, we can't be surprised that we get beat badly in these circumstances. Our defense is based on avoiding blows. The problem in a large group is that we are not going to consistently avoid blows from mobs that have much higher attack skills than our defense skills. Our focus is NOT to be primary tank. We can off tank in a pinch, we can sometime intervene some damage of the primary tank to spread the damage and buy the primary more time between healing or intervene for the healer or casters. Our focus is to deal out melee damage. If we can deal out damage, help reduce the damage taken by others using stuns and knock downs or intervene some damage for some of the other group members, then we are doing our job. Balance is only a level 21 Bruiser, so I honestly don't know how well we fulfill our role in the medium and high end game but that’s I think how it should work.Balance Blackrain21 Half Elf Bruiser

Chose a human myself. Hell with all the rat, gnome, kitty, ogre, barbarian, etc, bruisers you see, human is almost a UNIQUE choice. lol, Seriously, I don't think I've seen another HUMAN bruiser yet! This could be just bad luck, or the fact that there aren't many bruisers period could contribute as well...
 
Regardless, I like humans look and feel (well ya know, I am one...) even if it's not the most different choice there is. And you can't beat their stat balance, just seemed logical to me. Wouldn't pick another class for the world, and it's all about what makes you happy isn't it? SMILEY

I know what your talking about lordofdragons I am also a human 1 lvl away from Bruiser. I don't see to many humans, not to mention Bruisers, which is just the way I like it.

You guys are all in denial, there's only one real option for a bruiser: Dwarf! Which offcourse means that I'll have to do a betrayal. But I'll be a happy dwarf doing that! Cannot understand those who betray Freeport... Qeynos is a real, real sick place... "oh, if I only had a mug of jum-jum" *shudder*

I went with something no one ever does.
 
Iksar
 
Actually I am the only Iksar that I have seen around my level while getting exp grp's or running around.

Half Elf.. my monk is a descenant of his great-great-great... grandsire, a human monk from Freeport.  Somewhere along the way over the last 2 centuries, the bloodline was tainted with Dark Elf blood.

I have started work on an Erudite monk/bruiser.  Too early to tell though what final will be.  He is starting out in Qeynos, but might betray or might not.

I'm not really seeing any major letdowns from low str/sta in the class, and the high AGI rocks.
