Races in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous determine many aspects of a character, from their appearance to their innate capabilities. There are 12 Races in the base game, each with their unique strengths and weakness. In Pathfinder: WOTR, Races are chosen during Character Creation, and will provide the character with various buffs and effects that are exclusive to each race, as well as unique physical traits
Note: Your companions may have different races other than the 12 base races shown on this page. For example, Lann is a Mongrelman, give him unique bonuses.
What is the Best Race?
There is no overall best Race, but players will find that certain groups lend themselves better for certain styles of play. Not all choices are done for battle or Build purposes, however, so players should feel free to pick the race that they prefer for roleplay, aesthetics, or optimization objectives.

OMG! So many babies. Build a game yourselves if you don't like it. Or don't buy it. But for the love of God stop crying. It's a game. There are more important things to worry about. Like moving out of your parents' house. Erasing your search history. Losing your virginity. Or getting a job. I know one of these applies to every crier on here.
Memes aside, there is a disappointing lack of options from the tabletop. Why not the other elemental-kin? Why drop the ability to play as Drow or Half-Drow? I’m sure I could find others. Part of the joy of Pathfinder to me was the more in depth character creation, compared with 3.5.
I wanna be a spider man dammit
No Japanese Imperial? Disappointment.
No Orc? Disappointment.
this different drawing styles for the races just triggers. it is not like the game costs $3. but a whole triple-A $50
