Racial Skills?

MousePVPMousePVP calgary, ABPosts: 4Member
I couldn't find it any where, my question is will there be Racial Skills in the game? If so, can someone provide information on each Race and their racial bonuses? Or/and the sorce of confirmation that 100% positive racial skills will be in the game. Please and thank you

    I hope the racials are like the TES games - but better balanced for PvP.

    I love the Khajiit's Night Eye ability. I'm guessing it would need to be nerfed for PvP as it would be OP in night battles.

    Night is never a problem in TES games when Kahjiit.

    ahaha, yeah so far no solid information yet about racials, gawd the hype for this game is insane I can't wait - really excited!

    I usually decide of what race to roll depending on the racial bonuses, I perfer playing heavy tanks so I assume Orcs will suit that role :P  anyways, if anyone does find more information about racials please let us know ^_^

    Nice to see that there's an inkling of an understanding that going from single player to MMO some changes are necessary as a couple noted above with respect to racial abilities and PVP balancing.

    Keep that up and this forum might turn into a good place to discuss the game.

    Me? I hope they can manage to balance things while still making the races distinct. Nothing I hate more is games where there are 20 different races but they're all just basically skins. Even WOW itself in the beginning had much more distinction. Now it makes absolutely no difference.

    Unique racials are a must for me. I fully expect them to be in ESO.

    Racial skills are very hard to balance in a MMO, we have seen it before time and time again. 

    My opinion would be no racial skills but have racial stats so a Nord gets that bit extra 2H skill etc

    the night eye isnt really an issue... I wouldnt find it "unbalanced"... the night vision itself sometimes does more harm than good due to those high contrasts and blurs... now... something like the wood elves having 50% resistance to poison and diseases.. now THATS op! lol

    I'd support just racial stats, or increased weapon proficiency depending on race. Seems like the fairest way to do it. Once you get in to race specific powers, that's where the balancing act becomes nearly unmanageable.
