    Default Racials really worth it for the class you want to play...

    Do you think the racial talent really make a diff to the class you play.
    this is more focused on the stat increases.

    Alpha leaks stated that the stat racials are gone for release. Even if they arent at 42 I had 350+ int on my mage without trying to intentionally stack it. +10 is going to be negligable on a diminishing return stat.

    According to the leaked notes, the stat increases have been removed.

    According to the leaked patch notes, this is true. Even if they're not, the stat increases are so small that they won't really matter one way or another. It's just a minuscule amount of flavour.

    The racials are intended to have no real affect on meaningful gameplay, perhaps aside from Roleplaying.

    I totally enjoyed jumping around on my bahmi or high elf though... While the fox racial is completely useless and not fun at all. Especially if you take into account that I was a assassin and could already stealth at normal running speed. Still hope they're gonna change that a lil' bit ;(

    the jumping ability is by far the best if you like to explore at all. short cooldown, very versatile when your dealing with steep cliffs. you can jump and use the ability for extra height to jump over objects. it has a lot of great uses except for in combat..

    The only downside to the racial ability High Elves get that I've found is that it really wants to follow a horizontal plane and it takes some work to make it work vertically. Even when you jump it tends to go down and straight instead of doing any sort of vertical. I can get it to work after a fashion, but only if I can find a path that Angelic Flight is willing to take.

    Falling from twice the height is the stupidest racial ever. Every race should have had a clicky.
