Before you start exploring the Forgotten Realms of this recently released MMORPG, you have to create a character. What sounds like child’s play is actually really important, because the combination of race, class and stats determine your future as Neverwinter’s most fearless adventurer. Picking the right attributes can bring out the best in your beloved hero, so choose wisely. While dwarves make excellent Great Weapon Fighters, elves are known to dabble in the arts of magic.
