Yeah, if there is Skah! tons of running and no run buffs (small group or something) centaur tops the herd, but skydancer is nice just in general.
You sir, have taste.

Skah! You're lost.
1. Mino
2. HG
3. Aracoix
4. Centaur
5. irrelevant, top 4 is where it's at.

Aracoix only gets ahead of Centaur because of flight and stats.
Neph might get style points, but doesn't rank in my no-fashion-based listing.
mino is inferior to HG imo. Mino has no powerblock immunity, lesser stats, no commander, and slower runspeed without mino shrine.

Aracoix and Centaur barbs serve dif purposes. In GvG, I'd rather have a guy on the centaur than the aracoix.

I'll agree with the last part on GvG, but I don't know about the HG>Mino. It might just be that I'm stuck in stylebane and Mino is where the fashion is at.

I don't see your "best" stats, sure they get natural flight and a hefty, in comparison to HG/Mino, mana bonus. They aren't the fastest runner, nor do they get anything special in ways of stamina bonus over the other two. Given, I am looking at base stats and no certain build.

If you could explain more, that'd be great.

Any of these races are great at barbs in their own way. I personally like cent the most for a well balanced barb. I also had a great HG werebear axe chucker that owned. On a mino I prefer warrior only because the point spread is better left tight than having more powers on a barb.

They get decent stats. They're the barb that will hit anything, which is nice. I wouldn't play one though.

The perma stun immunity is nice on the mino. IMO 60 secs of HG rage stun/pb immunity + 120 secs of regular rage stun immunity is enough though.

Can't argue about the second movement speed boost though. That's a valuable one. Still, without it, the mino runs slower than the HG. Also the mino has weaker resists, and no self dmg chant.
