Rating:

Racial traits are special abilities and powers granted to characters in World of Warcraft based on their race. These racial traits come in both active and passive forms. Each unique race receives 4 racial traits in the Burning Crusade expansion. (Several of these will be passive and at least one will be active per race).

Some things to note:

  • Forsaken characters are considered as Humanoid’s rather than as Undead.
  • Priests also gain two more active traits, their very own Priest racial abilities.
