    Neverwinter features 14 distinct races, and fortunately, none of them are gender-locked. Unfortunately though, 5 of them are paylocked, so you will need to spend money to gain access to them. There are still 9 races any new player can access, and trust me they are the ones that make the most sense in Neverwinter’s lore!

    As always, your choice of race will primarily affect your character’s appearance, but each one also offers a few different racial abilities, buffing up different stats, or adding some unique racial attributes.

    I hope that this list of Neverwinter races will help you make the final choice, as all the lore and racial abilities are listed, along with how the default Male / Female models look.

    Half-Orc Lore: Half-orcs combine the best qualities of humans and orcs, though some would argue that the good qualities of orcs are few and hard to find.

    Sometimes a drow tires of the constant strife. Others see through the corrupt dogma of the Way of Lolth and seek a better way.
