Phantasy Star Online 2‘s release (finally) draws ever closer, and it is shaping up to be a phantastic game. However, with a myriad of classes/race combinations to choose from, you might want some help deciding the race that’s right for you. This guide will help you pick a race in PSO2.
An Introduction to Races
Phantasy Star Online 2 started with three races: Humans, the elf-like Newmans, and robotic CASTs. The fourth race, the horned Deumans (initially spelled Dewmans before the official English translation) were later introduced alongside a new class.
While the game has yet to include more races (the playable Beasts from Phantasy Star Universe are nowhere to be seen), it has introduced quite a few new classes. While any race can fill the shoes of any class, some races are better suited for specific classes than others thanks to race-specific stat bonuses.
