    I can confirm that both Eth and Mathosian females have the reverse grip. I'm not 100% sure on High Elves and Kelari, but I believe they do as well.

    my high elf female does not have a reverse grip on her off hand item, it's why i'm changing to Mathosian at launch.

    Human females on their main hand reverse and Dwarf females hold their off hand reverse.

    Can't say I blame you. I had every intention of making my Eth Rogue male, but the lack of awesome sword grip has forced me to go female.

    Yeah I really like the reverse hold wish I could get it on my elf future UI setting maybe.

    The reverse grip is great when you're holding a dagger or a sword, but it looks horrendous when you have an oversized axe or a mace in your mainhand. Personally I'm going Elf for the tuck 'n roll and the teleporting backflips.
