D&D Best Race
Elven rangers are a common sight in the D&D universe.

6. Cleric 

Best Stat Based Choice: Human, Firblog, Aarakocra

Clerics are the combat-healers of Dungeons and Dragons, usually forming the line just behind the fighters, Clerics use their healing magic to heal their companions after and sometimes during combat. They are extremely devout to their Gods and usually work for a specific Church, established formally in some city. Their alignment is totally dependant on the alignment of their diety, and they give their entire lives to the service of that diety. 

My choice: With their +2 Dexterity and +1 Wisdom, they are great clerics. Aarakocra are a reclusive race of avians who generally live far above human cities, in great mountains or rocky retreats. But their natural wisdom bonuses and flying abilities make them excellent clerics, in part because they can fly from one wounded to another easily. Their generally benevolent nature also gives them an advantage when dealing with their favorite God.
