    I'm not so sure about these racials being so great... If anything, I believe this is the first time we are getting racials that are outright useless for some classes, like Nightborne damage racial only applies to casters or Void Elf cast pushback.

    My guess.
    People who want to be optimal will race change to the best race any way they don’t need to make them strong because of that.

    tbh thoe new races should be cosmetic option in barber shop - but noo greeed in activision is too big to let it go.
    Making them a barber shop option would be a horrible idea both lore wise and massive waste.

    Even if they don't, I guarantee that after these races go live, we get a thread - probably with some of the same people complaining about them here - going "Allied Race Racials are unwhelming/rubbish...".

    Melee blink sounds incredible, as do Highmountain for any tank/ plate melee role where you might want to soak a bit o' damage.

    Nothing announced about BfA had me really wanting to play again, but these racials sound really cool and are certainly enticing.

    Wonder what Dwarves & Trolls will get.

    Yeah, exactly. People always think of a best-case scenario, and never think about the realities with this sort of thing. I guarantee we'll hear about them being too weak once they're live.

    I bet Dark Iron dwarves are getting 2 hearthstones.

    Mole machine just looks and sounds like it's going to be a Hearthstone as a racial ability, separate from the one they already get in their bag!

    You sure about that? +1% magic damage done is comparable to what a number of other races already have, if you're playing a mage, warlock or shadow priest and the worst throughput racial in the game if you're playing a rogue, warrior, hunter, monk or healing priest.

    -1% magic damage taken is a lot better than most resistance racials, but that's still overall pretty minor and I'm not really convinced that a short range invisibility remover on a cast time is anything othre than a gimmick.

    With no real content to speak of at the launch, SOMETHING has to sell this incoming WoD 2.0

    Half price mogging is giving the people what they want. Best racial confirmed.
    Paladin Bash has spoken.

    I don't think most people realize that spell pushback immunity isn't going to be terribly useful. AoE/Direct spells/Direct abilities doesn't cause spell pushback, so it's really only good in pvp and against open world things that melee/autoswing at you.

    To me it sounds more like Monk's Transcendance.
    So a blink then

    Fireblood sounds to me like a self dispel, which would be amazing for a class that can't inherently do such a thing

    I don't think Nightborne racials are that OP. Some are pretty useless, and neither gives any big advantage to begin with.

    But what about a melee with a root/snare escape? A melee with debuff immunity? A melee with passive stun reduction? A melee with 10% haste buff?

    Goblins already have a psuedo blink, but you don't see melee characters race-changing to goblin do you?
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    I bet you the Lightforged damage racial ability ends up being the new old Gift of the Naaru, aka imperceptible

    I can't wait for the first video of a Void Elf warrior using his teleport on top of a Warlock teleport and blinking to one shot him. It also means melee won't lose any time on targets from knockbacks and things like that. I think it sounds plenty OP. Every single bear and prot warrior will be HM Tauren as well, that flat and passive damage reduction will add up to massive amounts. I'd imagine it being pretty damn strong against fast auto attackers in pvp as well.

    So far i haven't seen any "OP" racial...they are just new, take a minute and look again at orcs, humans, blood elves, dwarves...all of them have powerful racials.

    -1% Fire damage taken, I bet.

    For the Mole machine maybe it's a Hearthstone but only to Ironforge or whatever their little hub will be.

    They really aren't, they instantly teleport you, the only difference is that you need a set up transendance (which is instant), but any good monk does that before the fight even starts
