So when are Alliance getting better racials?

General Discussion
If you wanna fix the Warmode imbalance, just give Alliance better racials. If Method swapped Alliance because they had free bloodlusts/dps trinkets and did more damage than Horde, that'd fix a lot of problems.
Nah man that rep buff is so OP, we don't need anything man.

Just remove all racials.
If everyone on here is to be believed, absolutely every elite player is avout to swap to Dark Iron because their racials are so OP.
You can't put forth a solution that just encourages people to swap because it's better than the side they're on. There's no way to get close to parity with that.

The only two outcomes are it does nothing, or it goes way past the 50% mark and reverses the problem.

Considering thats how the game has operated for the past 3 xpacks, (and even a few more before that) I don't think Blizzard knows any other way to balance it.
They let the problem exist for too long. Tweaking racials won't be enough to fix it.
Only allowing cross-faction raiding will and Blizzard doesn't want to do that.
We had them for years
Alliance whinging knows no bounds.

Blood elves get nerfed hard, void elves get amazing racials, the Horde gets a genocidal kill all life leader and it's nothing but Horde bias Horde bias Horde bias.

You all are silly.

Why does Horde get a genocidal leader and Alliance doesn't? More signs of Horde bias.

Wait and see how raids play out with the new top 100 stuff in BFA before demanding new racials.

Sharding is the real thing that needs to be tweaked for war mode anyways.

Sharding is just an excuse. They don't wanna say there are over 4x more horde players in Warmode than Alliance and the whole thing is a failure. If anything, they're saying sharding is a problem because they got ganked by a 40 man alliance raid doing a WQ since thats the only way to do them as Alliance.
They did that one time. Was it MoP or WoD?

The forums were full of harrumphing Horde.

The Void Elf teleport is absolutely useless. It's about as amazing as a hooker admitting how many STD's she has.

Void Elves try to Teleport, and they move forward a single step, unless they stand absolutely still to benefit from the crappy full distance. Either you stay where you are, and die, or run in the direction of it, and get less of an escape. Ifyou move backwards even a step, then you're Out of Range of it after it travels its full distance.

And what in the god forsaken hell is "whinging"? This is the NA forums. Take your British lingo to the EU forums? Whinging is not an NA word.
Dark iron dwarves. You're welcome.
Dungeon Delver: While indoors, move 4% faster.
Fireblood: Removes all poison, disease, curse, magic, and bleed effects and increases your primary stat by 100 for each effect removed. Lasts 8 sec. 2 min cooldown.
Forged in Flames: Reduces damage taken from Physical attacks by 1%.
Mass Production: Items crafted by Blacksmithing are created twice as quickly.
Mole Machine: While outdoors, summon a Mole Machine that tunnels through the earth.


If dwarves weren't already amazing tanks dark iron take it to the next level. Especially with all of the dot effects presently in dungeons dark iron are gonna be amazing.
You had a OP human racial for how long again?? Just stop

Human's are the only Alliance race that has OP Racials. Whereas the Horde have Orcs, Trolls, BEs, and kind of Tauren. Dark Iron will join the list of OP racials and Mag' Har will be underpowered. I'm not going to act like Human racials aren't OP. But Orc's deal more DPS than every other race because they have a damage increase racial. Trolls have arguably the best racial for BFA since Haste is in such short supply, Goblins have a race wide Heroic Leap, Undead are honestly balanced. Tauren have an AoE stun and increased health. Meanwhile Alliance gets things like 1% dodge chance, Faster Movespeed when dead, Increased Resource pool when Resource pools mean nothing unless you're a Rogue or Hunter. Worgen have pretty powerful racials too. The point is though that every Horde racial is incredibly useful, whereas the Alliance it's either OP or complete trash.

Their racials are horrible unless you're a tank.

Even as a tank, humans are probably better off with 2% to all secondary stats.
why are pvp racials still a thing? i remember in bc when everyone complained about orcs and stun resistance or dwarfs and stone form. people in this game just roll whatever is op, since horde have better racials everybody plays horde to pvp. simple.
