Well as for races, it doesnt matter much. The only boost that different races have over eachother is racial abilites. Which either way is just one skill so doesnt matter much. As for classes, they're all fun to play. If you want to stay far away from your enemy while having a pet tank for you, be a Warden or Summoner. If you want to tank using your character, be Paldadin or Warrior. Scout, Mage, PSI and Healer are all pretty much ranged classes, not reallu sure which is better than the other.
Most just pick a class that suites them well. Imo, I usually go mage since they have killer dps and usually can nuke the highest damage. Not sure with this game since I'm new aswell, but am definitely trying it on the 16th. =)
No need to "bump" it. Just read the website, and the class/race forums. Every answer given already tells you it is pretty even all around, and personal choice. What more do you want? Somebody to play the game for you?
