    Default Change the mathosian racial skill

    I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like the mathosians got stiffed with the racial skill. It's a 30% group speed buff that lasts 10 seconds vs the flying leap of other races or the 70% self-only 15 second speed buff of the Eth. Personally, I haven't found any time that I am actually grouped and can still use the racial skill (can't use racials in dungeons, warfronts, and while in combat). So, most of the time I, and many other mathosians I've spoken to, simply end up with a gimped 30% buff for 10 seconds that is usually used while running to/from the portcullis in Sanctum. I would probably use the camouflage fox-form skill of the Kelari more often just to get by enemies without a fight.

    I suggest either increasing the duration of the speed buff, or increasing the amount of speed gained. Or something else. Anything else.

    Also the Kelari racial needs to last like 30 minutes not seconds. It is useless for anything other than to look cute.
    I don't like mean people, rude people and people who are not nice.

    I stand by my pre-racial changes position that they should simply be re-classified as Ascended Traits of which you can pick one when you roll your character.

    Agree. Go with Dwarf if you feel your racial is fail.

    Yea mathosian and kelari racials are garbage.

    I'd like to see them changed to something more like this:

    Mathisoan:
    Passive 10% movespeed increase, possibly shared by group members when applicable.

    Kelari:
    No cooldown, lasts until canceled, increased effect. Right now, turning into a fox seems to only shed a couple feet off of an agro radius... imo it should basically be a stealth, except you'd still be visible/targetable to other players. (perhaps, you should also spontaneously agro certain mobs from a much greater distance - I've noticed wolves and such will agro on critters, so makeing yourself a critter should add you to the snacklist ^_^)
    Looking for truly dynamic end game content? Looking for legendary PvP, RvR, and RP? Looking for not just player built housing; but entire towns, cities, and empires?
    Congratulations! You have earned +10 Bonus Points for reading between the lines!! ^_^

    If you prefer the racial trait of a particular race, then play that race. Not much point in choosing one thing then wanting the other.
