I gave my vote to the Elves, but only because the race that I always kept close to my hearth seems to be missing. Gnomes.

Now, I am not talking about the Warcraft gnomes. I am talking about a race of earth-dwellers, mystic seekers and secret keepers. A race of noble spirit and great power.

We have to eliminate everyone at this run down castle in order to get a loan from a bank for a quest.

We formulate this plan to sneak to the back of the castle, past the guard and use a grappling hook to climb to the top. Everyone was on board with the plan. So we get to the back and start climbing but the Elf runs off and decides he wants to try and snipe the guard at the front of the castle. He fails and alerts the whole garrison to our presence and then runs away while we are trapped in the castle.

Also, he was our only healer for a while and he refused to heal me and tried to get a dragon to eat me.
What'd you do to the poor guy?

That's because Elves were created by Eru Iluvatar and Dwarves by Aule. Even so, the Dwarves are described as pretty much being the hardiest and strongest race in Middle-earth. The reason there are more badass/important Elves than Dwarves in LotR is because Elves took a more active role in Middle-earth's wars. Dwarves didn't participate much, but the times they did participate mattered a whole lot. Had the War of the Orcs and Dwarves never happened, things might have played out quite differently in the North. The Dwarves kicked so much ass in that war that Orcish power had broken for like decades after and never fully recovered.

Regardless, even as a Dwarf fanboy, I fully admit that the biggest badass in Middle-earth is/was Fingolfin.

I may have stolen a magical gemstone from him that ended up being worth 2k gold as he was getting burned by a booby trap.

But he tried to feed me to a dragon! He pushed me off a cliff in to the pit that the dragon was sleeping in causing it to wake. Luckily I had a potion of invisibility so the Dragon missed me but saw him and went after him. Being the hero that I am I of course saved him from demise through sheer luck by critting the dragon with my dragonbane longsword.

Fingolfin had balls of steel for challenging Morgoth to mortal combat. The elven soldiers who faced balrogs on the battlefield deserve respect too.

I don't even hate LotR Elves, yo. I like 'em. Especially the Noldor. Noldor are the best Elves.

So why do we want to fuck things that we don't want to be friends with? Doesn't that seem kind of mean?

Just the way things are.

Elves maybe hot, but they have their heads far up their buttocks.

Elves are supposed to be better at everything, which leads to a superiority complex.

LotR Elves are more powerful than most of the elves in fantasy settings I will say.

without dwarves, less comic relief. More pressure on Marron and Pippen.

I'm not sure if that would produce more shipping or less shipping than GimlixLegolas.

I am kind of scared to find out.

Be not daunted by the human depravity, druid. It is but a weapon; a tool. And those who do not wield it will inevitably fall before those who do.
