I think we can all agree that the goblin and Worgen racials (to a lesser extent) are amazing. Fun, rarely situational, and now too overpowered. However, the other races are lagging behind. Their racials are less awesome. So here are a few ideas for a racial update. Feel free to leave feedback.


Orc- They need a utility racial on the level of diplomacy or a profession racial. Yet orcs neither excel at any profession nor are they adept at politics. However, they do embrace battle.

*new Racial* Honour Through Battle: Increases your honor gain by 10%

Troll- Regeneration needs an update. It currently is outdated and useless

Regeneration: No longer increases health regeneration. Now increases the amount of healing you receive by 5%

Tauren Minor changes

Warstomp: can now be used in bear and cat forms. Now Instant

Endurance: Now increases total health by 3%.

Forsaken need a PVE racial.

Will of the Forsaken (renamed “Mental resistance”): Now a passive trait that reduces the duration of fear and charm effects by 10%.

Underwater breathing: Removed

*New Racial*

Will of the Forsaken (caster): Reduces the mana cost of all spells by 50% for 10 seconds. 2 minute Cool down

Will of the Forsaken (Rogue): Reduces the energy cost of all abilities by 10. Lasts 10 seconds. 2 minute Cool down.

Will of the Forsaken (Warrior): Reduces the rage cost of all abilities by 10. Lasts 10 seconds. 2 minute Cool down.

Will of the Forsaken (Hunter): Reduces the Focus cost of all abilities by 10. Lasts 10 seconds. 2 minute Cool down.

Will of the Forsaken (Death Knight): Reduces the Runic Power cost of all abilities by 10. Lasts 10 seconds. 2 minute Cool down.

Blood Elf Need an additional racial trait

*New Racial*Grace of the Sin’dorei: Increases movement speed by 8%. Does not stack with similar effects (other than Inner Will). (basically a boot enchant)

Arcane Affinity: In addition to increasing your skill with enchanting, this trait now also grants a chance to receive additional materials when disenchanting an item.

Goblin- Just made a quality of life change

Better living through Chemistry: In addition to increasing your skill with alchemy by 15, this trait now also increases the effect of healing and mana potions on the player by 20%. Does not stack with similar effects (Basically a less powerful alchemist stone, meaning the player gets half the effect without equipping the trinket)

Human- Every one can agree that EMFHS needs to go

Every Man for Himself Removed

*New Racial* Endless Ambition: Increases your Mastery Rating by 900(At lvl 85, scales with level. This would be roughly a 5% increase) for 15 seconds. 2 minute Cool down (Works similar to http://www.wowhead.com/item=56458)

Dwarf- Stone form needed to be made more powerful/useful beyond clearing diseases and poisons

Stoneform: No longer increases armor when activated, instead reduces the physical damage you take by 10% when active in addition to clearing Diseases, Poisons and bleed effects. Now lasts 10 seconds.

Gnome- Quality of life change

Engineering Specialization: In addition to increasing your skill with engineering by 15, now reduces the cool down of your glove mounted tinkers by 20%


Night Elf- Really needed no changes...


Draenei- Quality of life change

Gem Cutting: In addition to increasing your skill with Jewel Crafting by 10, this trait now also grants you a chance to additional gems when prospecting

Worgen- buffed their active racial to be on the level of the goblin one.

Darkflight: Cool down reduced to 2 minutes

Not good...

Especially the Dwarven one. It used to have a 10 second duration and it was removed for a reason...

Some of the others are down right silly or OP

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Will of the FOrsaken.

Undead are my fav race and it makes me sad that WotF has been gutted so badly.
