So how do these work?  Do you get all 4 traits right away on level1?  Do they grow in power as you level?

Undead players are now considered Humanoid targets rather than Undead targets.


Wow, that makes perfect sense.   ( :?:  :?:  :?: )

Gnomes and Tauren look like they've come out on top in terms of racial abilities, when both PvP and PvE is considered.

Trolls and Night Elves both look like they have limited, but cool abilities.

Orcs and Humans look ultra-boring and too "catch-all" (Seriously, the "Command" ability Orcs have is laughable, as is the Human faction thing).

Dwarves and Undead majorly got the shaft.  (Undead now have to activate their immunities and can't stay underwater indefinitely anymore--in return they get worthless shadow resist and Cannibalize, which looks limited at best.  Dwarven specs are worse--Gun Skill only applies to a SINGLE class, Treasure finding is stupid as most non-instanced chests suck anyway).

One of a few ways, as far as I know of - either you'll get these all at once (doubtful), you'll gain all four skills as you level automatically (possible), or you'll get to choose between one of the four skills as you hit certain levels (most likely).

But I honestly don't know the answer. Nice abilities though. Gives you a reason to play one race over another.

Yep, they all look good to me. I think LE is overreacting a bit. the thing I dont like the most? By far its that gnomes get extra int. Let me tell you why:
Most people for some reason have this fanatical aversion to gnomes. I love gnomes, I mean seroiusly, I have some sort of gnome fetish that should land me on dr. phil so the entire world can mock me. That said, this is just going to encourage people to play gnome mages, and if you will forgive my french, I wish they would all just fuck off smile

At least you can't be a Gnome Monk, a race/class I expect lots of people to flock to in Everquest 2 thanks to places like WTF Comics, among other long-standing jokes.

It's because they're pure evil, just below clowns.  Little freaky bastards!  A happy day will be when my kodo gets to stomp all over their oversized, bug-eyed heads (how in the world can their little freakish bodies support those gargantuan heads?).

Rouge, that's a BRILLIANT IDEA

 
----------------[Scene : A quiet day in Ironforge]------------------
Gnome 1: What's that sound?

Gnome 2: Is it the sound us being evil again?

Dwarf 1:No, look!

[Stampede of Horde ridden Kodos rushes out of the mountains.]

Gnome 1: It's OK, we aren't flagged for P....
[CHOMP!]
Kodo has used "Devour" on Gnome 1

Gnome 2: AAAAAHH!
