There are 4 different races in Empire. Your class is dependent on your race, so your options are limited. That being said, I have taken the game's description found on this page and provided it for a quicker reference. Each class is limited to one race, so concerning yourself with starting stats and racial abilities is not necessary.
Having a hard time leveling?
If you notice leveling is becoming increasingly difficult and you are still in the early stages of the game (1-30), then try going to a different races starting area and going through all of their quests. This is a way to catch up on exp. when you have completed all of your dailys and aren't in the mood to grind mobs.
