I'm trying out a Minotaur Monk. Kind of feels overpowered...quite a few race/class bonuses with that combo. I think the race/class synergy actually came from the latest patch...so it probably wouldn't be mentioned in guides.

Pretty fun warrior type character though, and Minotaurs are rather fun. It is useful being able to heal with sheep and stuff. Kind of simple to play and not the largest unit variety, but the different researches really make it.
I think it really depends on your game style. I like Minos due to the fact that your basic units become quite amazing midgame & the Kings are just plain kickass, ad the bonuses & it's game over once you get them flowing.

As a strategic player , I've always liked Fey. Free gold AND crystal. What can you say? If you can't win with that , you simply can't win. They however are a bit weak early to midgame.

Plaguelords are fun too. The things I like about minos are taken upo a notch with all those sick upgrades. ;)
Pun intended.

I LIKE SWARM. <333
Everybody knows the minotaurs are best! Other than that I also like the Dark Dwarves and the Empire, but all races are fun and awesome. The lore in this game is great, I love it! HAHA
Heh i like this guy. Oddly enough, im ALWAYS Dwarf... But i find the Dwarves in this game, while amazing, are so slow moving and slow to build that i get bored. Dark Dwarves are entertaining though. But while i think Undead are the best, i kind of like playing Orc for some reason... People say 'fey' are the underdog? Hell, nobody else here has chosen Orcs... Its kind of a pity that Heroes are so great and yet ruin the game unless you deliberately stop leveling them, i think after 50 it just ruins it.

Minotaur Healer, with Minotaurs.

If there's one issue with Animal healing, it's that it's defensive by default-you're not guaranteed wild animals on the map to help you, and Sheep are slow. So bring your own healing. Elcor's Aura means you don't need as high of a casting skill to heal for good amounts, so you can eventually wade in there, carefully. +Speed from Invigorate is nice.

By far, the minotaurs.

For me, a assassin hero with a bunch of shamans can make a HUGE difference on the battlefield.

And we yet have their ability to heal themselves by eating animals.

Minotaurs are also by far my favorite. :)
It's hard to pick only three, Fey would be number 2 and maybe Orcs or High Elves for number 3.
(WLBC 2)

Dark Elf Summoner

Summoners as a profession are amazing, their basic summon the Quasit is not just a builder but a very competent node raider and fighter. Dark Elf heros can also get the racial ability "Dark Rituals", which boosts your casting ability for summoning very cheaply. With a summoning circle, summoning mastery and some points into intelligence/magery, can spawn 18-24 elite Quasits at about 10th level summoner which can swarm and kill heros, wipe out node clusters and even kill 1-2 towers.

I use her with Dark Elves or Undead

Undead have very strong early-game aggression and can increase resource output using zombies, I found them great for grinding those early levels. Skeletons, while absolute chaff in combat, are quick marchers and their ability to morph on the fly gives the undead the versatility to raid without committing resources, then morph to respond to threats opportunistically. Combined with the summoner's quasits, you easily sieze map control in a 1v1 without needing to upgrade past tier 2 fortress.

Dark Elves are a bit weaker in the early game. Their skeletons can't morph, but they're decent enough against towers. Spiders seem to be more effective in melee. Spider queens are great for shutting down tough infantry rushes at tier 2.
Dark Elves easily outmatch most races at tier 3 fortress with their sorcerers however - upgrade them with black bolt and you've got your doom squad with 6 or more, and their pillar of fire spell melts all but the toughest units. I love sorcerers so much I always keep 2 of them in my retinue for when I feel like playing Undead. . Ancient wisps are extremely necessary for getting the sorcerer rush going on higher difficulties, I've found. The Dark Elf economy doesn't fully come online until 3rd tier with their thralls. At this stage, mass skeletons become very viable just to take the fire off of your sorcerors, mixing some dark infantry in can also make the infantry blob more effective in melee, especially against dwarfs (all t1 elven infantry do triple damage vs dwarfs)

Also love my Barbarian Druid, with his summoned unicorns for healing, supporting hordes of barbarians at tier 3 with spear of ank, works similarly to the dark elf sorcerors but much cheaper and more spamable.
