Have they gone in to any of the racial mechanics yet?

I am not sure what ya mean. You mean the racial utility skills?

09-12-2011, 07:43 PM
Yeah, pretty much. What makes a human warrior different than a Charr, Sylvari or Asruan Warrior?

Just their racial utility skills and their animations. No race will be pigeon-holed into any specific profession.

Yeah, not entirely what I meant. I was talking about what racial abilities/skills would an asuran warrior get that would be different from a human warrior? It's those racial utility skills I'm talking about.

So far there is not much information on what kind of racial skills there are. I know Asura can summon a hazmat suit and skills that can summon golems. Humans can summon Hounds of Balthazar. Charr I believe can summon Charr Effigy. Sylvari can summon some sort of Guardian and will have healing and snaring racial skills.

These are the only racial skills confirmed and seen in game so far. Racial skill: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Racial_skill
