You can defend race/class restrictions to some extent, like if it's lore related or something. Like a "force of good" holy elf race not being able to use an evil blood magic class. But there's literally 6 classes. What good reason is there that the Aurin can't use a freakin' sword or be a healer?
Not that it matters because the game is awful anyway.
$60 box and $15 a month... *snort, chortle* it would be dead in under ~6 months even if it was F2P.
You apparently didnt read holic's post mentioning that the classes will be available once all the animations are done.
