Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Race Tier List

This guide is strictly concentrated on min maxing (i.e. getting the outright many combat and mechanics worth out of characters).

Race usually won’t make or break a character, however not all are produced equivalent.

Races Tier List

RaceRankDescription
HumanSSTop of the stack, as usual. A tempo feat and an extra skill-point that allows humans to be imbeciles and still have some skills. A perfect representation of humanity.
ElfSElven magic and elven feats are now gold. Hands down the best caster race, at least in cases where we can scale things from INT.
DwarfBAbout average but pretty sturdy. The Barrow variant is probably the best.
GnomeBThe Illusion school is nice since it can be most everything; the issue is it takes quite some wind out of our sails. Pyromaniac subrace is pretty interesting on paper but is difficult to implement effectively.
HalflingB+Lots of Armour Class here with racial feats taken. If you want a midget tank, this is your pick. Hasty is the one to go for. Initiative is awesome; initiative for essentially free (at least if you are adamant on playing halfling), is even better.
Half-ElfAAlmost elves if you squint hard enough. Can take Elven Magic as a feat or a dual heritage. Taking Kindred Raised and then Elven Magic is one of the better ways to get a Charisma-based caster.
Half-OrcB+If you pick one of the alternative features, the race is at least usable. And they have +Armour Class feat, so they make some decent fighters if you take Human-Raized and Ironhide
AasimarA-Enough stats to almost compete with imbecile human and they can get wings for that juicy Armour Class ramp, should you need it. One of the better options out there for most any build; we just can often do ever so slightly better.
TieflingAThese go from awful to insanely overpowered in a heartbeat. Motherless is the only worthwhile Tiefling subrace. Free bites are great.
OreadBElemental dudes and dudettes. Ironsoul is the only one worth considering since Lead Blades scale damage well. Downside is Ironsoul means +2 CON +2 WIS -2 DEX, so you’d need to jump through some extra hoops to make it happen.
DhampirBUndead bois. The take 20 on Persuasion checks feat is nice if you are not the save-scumming sort, and the immunities are okay to have (albeit easily replaceable by a spell).
KitsuneBMake your fursona today. Vulpine Pounce is pretty decent; Magic Tail isn’t.
