ArcheAge a total of 10 race,
Official website announced only four
Are the human race, elves, Hariharan, Orcs.
In CBT4 test, someone in the neutral zone of the ancient century small town in the middle of the edge and found that a factory building, which found similar to the "Lineage 2"
Where the hobbits. This soon attracted the interest of the players. Everyone have to guess whether this will be added?

According to the setting, the ancient century, a total of 10 race. The official website only announced four, respectively, is the human race, elves, Hariharan, Orcs.
CBT4 test, someone in the neutral zone of the ancient century small town in the middle of the edge, found a factory building, which found similar Lineage 2 dwarves.
This hairstyle soon attracted the interest of the players.
We all have to guess this is not a new race, dwarves.
So Xiaobian bold reasoning
In CBT5 dwarves will officially boarded the platform. Meet with you friends.

So Tencent describes ten(!) races for AA release, not only the eight we´re discussing about.
Also it seems to be sure, that the Dwarves will be introduced as a playable race in CBT5

This is the official AA channel of Tencent, so i claim this news to be serious.

Here are my guesses about starting regions with the help of the good old cbt2 map

Zwerge = Dwarves
Feen = Fairies
??? = my thoughts where unknown races could start

This would be awesome to have 10 races for real.

Thursday night is maintenance time @ archeage.com.
Let´s see ^^

That dwarfs are the ones of L2. Showing them in this article makes me not believe anything of it.

Yeah we have no indication of that so far.

And I still do not fully believe that 10 races at all. Considering all of them would probably have own capital and such, and starting position... the game must calculate with it, aka you cannot have strong monsters near that start, and that would push the harder places even further away and force the world even larger. I'm not sure about this. Yes AA may have 10 races but maybe after 5 years of expansions after launch. I see no way that 10 races can make it to launch.

Yes it is likely we will see dwarfs and one more race before launch, but they will have nothing together with the races from L2.

There was an interview with either XLGames or Jake Song that mentioned they were thinking of having up to 12 races at some point in the future and 8 upon release. Even though we have not seen more than 4 official races, it does not mean that the other areas/races are not completed. It's entirely possible that this phase of development has been moving on ahead since the game has been delayed and that they decided to add the races earlier. Another possibility is that not all 10 races they state are playable. Some races like the warehouse NPC's are in the game, but cannot be played and are different from the 8 suspected official playable races.

Also, as people have stated already, the dwarves shown above are from Lineage 2 and NOT ArcheAge. We have seen dwarves in the testing already and they look like this:

There's probably a shot of some male dwarf mobs somewhere as well.

Yes, eastern part of Garangdol Plains is a camp full of dwarves (translated as the "Stonebrothers" Clan).
There is a quest line regarding these.
You can grind one type of ´em as part of a secret quest, too. (pic)

We know for 100% sure that the Warborn and Dwarves are in the game and will be playable races. Not news. The rumor of two more races being added to the sum total is news, though. I'd need some proof before believing that, though, since all images thus far have not shown more than eight races.

The thing is in korea games usually release " unpolished" wich means what for us in the western hemisphere would be called a beta is there ready to get released (tera for example) The Korean tera release actually only had a lvl cap of 50 (wich will be 60 by the time it releases in Europe/US).. So my point is that i think ArcheAge will release mit 6-8 races in Korea/asia in general and will gain additional races within the time/progress the game gets worked on.

So by the time the game may get to the point we can play it in the western we might have 10 races.

OMFG 10 races, and Entaro mentioned a potential 12 in the future, and just few months ago the plan was 8 races.
Seems like XL Games not running out of ideas, or they are just too excited with ideas and dont know when to stop :)

No you are wrong! If they were like that I would surely play them as I did in Lineage2.... even when I was underpowered... and all the life was harsh and hard..... I simply had to because there was no choice. You cannot fight the desires of your heart.

The SS prices were by far to low. When i played they sometimes dropped to a price where you could only make 1 credit with each. I had no other choice than pushing the price up for 9 more credits again. :P

My dwarven heart yearns for a lusty maid with a large bosom and a mug of ale. Those... "dwarves"... look like they'd snap like an elf in a stiff breeze!

The only information that I've seen was that ArcheAge will only have 8 races. Here is the interview. As hinted by the screenshots from the ArcheAge website and Entaro's review page. If they have 10 or 12 when it's all said and done, that would be great. :D
But like Entaro stated, they may not all be playable. So far as Orcs, I've never ran across anything even mentioning them as a playable race. Unless the Returned are something else than what others are thinking. ;)

Actually, I remember buying from a dwarf dressed in sage's robe(yellow) with a shop labeled "Banana Shop". I gave him that for humor. But otherwise I'd buy them half-price from the local guild dwarf. Never getting screwed by the likes of you people.
