Some thoughts:Nice changes for Trolls.Poor Undead.Congrats to Nelfs on being the new horde shaman killers. And getting that extra resistance the Undead lost.You read the change to Endurance wrong. It no longer scales with gear. Nerf. Meanwhile, Nelf warriors now have an ability that reduces damage in a scaling way.Blizz just sent a clear message to Belf Paladins. Say goodbye to that single target ranged pull ability. You now need a glyph like all the other pallies. On the other hand, a flat 2% spell miss is nice. Almost, dare I say, useful.Oh, finally, thanks to Blizz for giving human DPSers an imba aggro panic button. Human warlocks with Soul Shatter on cooldown can actually survive overtaking the tank (giving him time to catch up). The rest of you races can go f yourselves.The human racials better get nerfed before release.

You guys do realize that racial abilities aren't anywhere near as important in any situation than talents or baseline abilities, right?The best racial in the game has always been, and always will be Diplomacy. The idea of Fall of Humanity is kind of stupid as it just doesn't do anything, its not an aggro dump, its an aggro delay, at the best it nerfs your DPS to allow a tank to catch up, or maybe breaks a spell cast. Nothing's been confirmed on that front.Point is, racials aren't important enough to get worked up over. And its BETA. I think everyone agreed that racial abilities needed a second look, no doubt they will gauge the community reaction and the performance of these abilities. Also, since humans are getting an extra racial, I suspect Orcs might get the same sort of treatment later on. They've said they aren't done here.
