The concept is good, but I don't like the idea of making racials available to anyone. That is part of the act of choosing a race. I think a better solution, if they were going to try and do something like this, would be a feat system, similar to what is in D&D. Small abilities that you can pick and choose from as you gain levels. They would not be class or race specific, but instead available to everyone. You might get one every 20 levels or something, and each would provide something similar to a racial ability. That would be a cool system and allow for a lot more character customization.

Too much, if you ask me. WOW is already very customizable- in fact, I think it's gotten just about as complex as Blizzard would be willing to go. Any more and they start losing too many newbies after a month.

@Harmun: what's really customizable about your characters in this game at all? If by customization you mean "cookie-cutter itemized gear that you wear exclusively for stats and snatch up when it's even a remote stat boost", than sorry, that's not customization. I think the idea of certain "racials" that have no actual racial implication (who's to say a Troll can't be charming and diplomatic or a human incapable of being tenacious?) /should be selectable. War Stomp, Voodoo Shuffle, and Will of the Forsaken, on the other hand, can stay to keep some form of racial uniqueness.
