The Iksar also start off with fairly difficult newbie zones, are KOS everywhere else on the entire planet, and are located in the middle of a bunch of zones intended to give challenge to characters in their 40's and 50's. In addition, in order to get to where the other races and recommended zones are, they have to travel to an entirely different continent.

On the plus side, Iksar are tallish, are the second race to be able to be monks, have infravision, regeneration, and get a wonderful bonus to swimming.

Despite their difficulty, Iksar are quickly becoming one of the more popular races among the Evil races.
