Zach, I think you misread the endurance change. It currently scales with gear, and talents. Every point of stamina gave you 10.5 health, at base, more with stamina talents. This made Taurens something of a must have if you wanted to play a tanking class, or when combined with warstomp, a must have for pvp. Its now changed to scale with base health. Tuned to give a 5% increase at green quality gear, as your gear gets better however its benifits will become less and less apparent. Its still good for tanks and pvp, health is health, however its no longer a clear choice or a must have. The point of racials were not to make people go "Well, I wanna be a tank, so I have to be -race- or I'll be completely gimped" They're just fun -little- bonuses.

Oh. So it scales INVERSELY with gear? That kinda sucks, doesn't it? =( Lemme change that.

It doesn't scale inversely to gear, it just doesn't scale at all. Its just base health, it only changes as you level up. So if it were to give you an extra 300-400 health at 80, you'll always have that extra health.All I meant by it getting less noticeable was that when you're a t9 tank with 40k health, that extra 300 really isn't going to be much of an advantage over the other races that have 39.7k health. :)I think all the "tuned to 5% at green level gear" is simply a note saying its not exactly 5% of base health, and that it'll be compensated, so that people leveling through northrend in their shiny new OP green gear won't have quite as drastic of a change as before.

Yay for having a racial talent that will become usless once everyone is to endgame!!Awesome, I hope that they make warstomp less effective as you get closer to 80, that'd just be sweet...
