Newman, the best race!

Space Elves are here, and we will provide support to all of ARKs with our superior longevity! Elven Lifespan never cease!

Actually Newmans are a genetically engineered variant of Human, designed originally to have an easier time using photons at the cost of some physical strength.

CASTs are also just full conversion cyborgs.

There are no humanoid alien races I know of aside from the Photoners who created humans (almost extinct).

Spave Elf for the win!

Cough.. Newmans are literally modified humans with no evidence of a longer lifespan. CASTs can claim a longer lifespan due to being mostly machine, but their organic brain means they will one day die of old age as well.

Space, Elf. The sexiest out of all. I declare superiority. We dominate Photon.

Pointy eared Humans. that is all.

With an affinity to Photon and charisma and appeal. Win win win!

Humans at this point have the same general affinity for photons as newmans and deumans, as well as CASTS. its stated that everyone is even now.

if you like pointy ears go for it.

That's not true. You came opening as a nerd who went across back story. You should know humans do not have the same potential.

@Pulptenks Originally they did not. but if you pay attention you'll see that at this point in the timeline I am correct. it's safe to assume that Newmans no longer have much frailer bodies too.

Even back when newmans had better photon potential, they paid for it with weak bodies, making them suck at physical melee.

In Phantasy Star Online 2, Humans are one of the four races from which players can select from. Humans are the original entities from which ARKS was born; early in Photon research, it was discovered that Humans have the best aptitude for Photon control, thus making them the basis of all races. The Newman, CAST, and Deuman races were created by using Humans as a template. The other races were initially created to specialize in specific roles, but as research into the control of Photons advanced, the other three races evolved to possess Photon wielding capability nearly identical to that of Humans, thereby making their differences purely aesthetic.

In the Phantasy Star Online 2 series, Newmans are one of the four races from which players may design their character around. Alongside CASTs and Deumans, Newmans are one of the three races created from Humans, designed for maximizing Photon aptitude. The sharp, elf-like ears of the Newman race were intended to act as "antennas" for Photons, granting them access to a greater Photon supply at a time at the cost of their physical ability. Due to advancements in Photon research, the Photon aptitude of Newmans is now nearly identical to that of Humans, making their differences purely aesthetic.

Yet, Newman still got best Technic stats. Which defeat all of this because it's a fact.

@Pulptenks By a completely insignificant amount by level 75. the "best" race is entirely subjective.

Disagree min maxer will always go for stats

If you are min maxing down to the last 0.000001% on a TECH FOCUSED BUILD maybe, but nobody without special tools will ever notice a difference. and just the same way newmans have ever so slightly higher T power, they have slightly lower HP/defenses. raw damage is NOT everything.

However you approach it its 100% a matter of opinion.

Yus, and you're just jealous of not being as sexy.
