Pterrodax Swoop kind of makes me think they'll get an ability similar to Wardens in Elder Scrolls Online where a Pterrodax (Cliffracers in ESO) swoops down and deals damage before flying off again.Embrace of the loa seems like a healing ability of some kind.Regeneration will probably be health regen out of combat.Ward of the Loa sounds like a defensive ability, possibly in the form of a totem judging by the icon.City of gold could have something to do with the amount of money NPC's drop.
the ward of the loa makes me very hopeful for the paladin class option for the trolls the do exist in lore in the form of free thinkers vindicators and prelates along wiht prelates being in game Zandalari Prelate#abilities the fanatic devotion to the loa make them the perfect canidate for the hordes paladins who are the perfect examples of the nontraditional paladin since belfs originally stole their power and tauren worship the sun instead of the holy light. I really hope blizz gives us the holy light of the loa warriors in BFA.
I'm so sad that they removed the "joke" racials from nightborne. It would really have added a lot of flavor, especially for people like me who've been fond of the race and suramar in general since release. I really hope they come back somehow as extra abilities, even if they have no practical purpose, kinda like the way worgens get second form which doesn't do anything either.
Essence of the Void increases damage and healing by 5% for 12 seconds. No details yet on the proc rate.WTF?
Pterrodax Swoop could be a knockdown, since most birds that swoop knockdown the target. It would be cool if it actually summoned a Pterrodax to knockdown the target. City of Gold sounds very intriguing. I'm pretty interested in Regeneratin' too, since regular Trolls have a passive (though incredibly weak), and Draenei have a HoT. Will it be a better passive? A channel?
Pterrodax Swoop looks like to be a type of knockback/stun similar to the ones from Ravagers( hunters will remember ).
Pterrodax Swoop sounds like a Hearthstone CDWard of the Loa and Embrace of the Loa sound like passive abilities. Possible damage reduction and damage buffsRegeneration might be their active ability, healing themselves in combatCity of Gold is either a reputation buff or a gold buff
My guess is that Pterrodax Swoop is a free racial flightmaster's whistle; takes you to the nearest flightpoint you've discovered.
I still really want Void Elves "void form" to be controllable... Like Worgens, worgen form. Rather than having my characters appearance change back and forth randomly during combat.Not to mention id adore having access to it being a toggle for the sake of Roleplay.
My guesses.City of gold: Gold increase from mobs/quests.Embrace the loa: Some sort of damage proc.Pterrodax Swoop: Hearthstone/Flight master's Whistle Mechanic.Regenaratin: Health regen Ward of the loa: 1% stat
50% root for 12 seconds, damn that's op combined with the damage.
It seems like Void Elves are shaping up to be great Disc Priests with that racial.
"Masquerade: Shroud yourself in illusion, taking on the appearance of another Nightborne."Watch out! It's a trap!
is it cynical my first though reading these was "gotta have those OP racials so the sheeple will pay for race changes"
Pterodax Swoop sounds like the Horde version of the Lightforged AoE Damage Spell they can use.Also, those Void Elf Racials... I can already see top guilds playing Void Elves for that 5% damage + Shadowfrost bonus. I don't think it's a good idea, it'll force min/maxers to play them because they have a teleport spell too. Their racials seem too strong and need to be toned down.
I'm still salty they removed Masquerade. It seemed so fun. I suppose I can understand why they removed Dispel Illusion, because it could be theoretically OP. Though they could've tweaked it a bit. I may forever mourn Masquerade. Maybe they'll make a toy with tons of possible skins?City of Gold could be several things. Maybe an increased gold drop like aviaticlol said. Some kind of passive. Embrace the Loa sounds like a passive random damage buff, or an increase to specific magic schools. Pterrodax Swoop sounds like an active. Either a damage ability or a retreat. Regeneratin is likely a passive healing.Ward of the Loa sounds like a resistance, protection, or reduced damage taken stat passive racial.
