Importance of race chosen?

Does this game have racial abilities or something a race can do better than others? Are some classes race locked maybe?

    There will be no race or gender locking to classes. the different races will have unique spell augmentations as well as base stats, but the base stats won't be so significant that it will force you to go certain classes. If you're not familiar with the augmentation system, i recommend checking it out here

    https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Augments

    tl;dr of augments: it changes your primary archetype's abilities do have different effects.
  • as far as we know so far:

    Races provide different racial stat seed and different augments.
    We don't know what they are yet.

    Go with Orc. They have a special race bonus of being Orc and looking cooler than everyone else who did not choose Orc.

    The one true race is Tulnar. We didnt run away. We stayed and thrived. The others now come back after it got "safe" and they want to "reclaim" their stuff. FINDERS KEEPERS SUCKERS, THATS OUR STUFF NOW!

    Maybe the Tulnar should rise up and keep these interlopers and usurpers from taking the land back! Queek! Tulnar, Tulnar, Tulnar! We will teach you above worlders to abandon us!

    I'd be careful. It may be the only reason you 'rise up' is because of a certain necromancer, who shall remain unnamed... >:)

    Trust me the only thing I would turn the tulnar into is ammunition for my catapults

    I see plenty of Heresy in this discussion. Better not let the Emperor of Tulnarkind hear of this.

    And yes, Tulnar/Skaven are kind of Humanity from Warhammer 40K:
    1. We live in giant hive cities
    2. Our warriors are either a horde of poorly armed soldiers with heavy weapons or giant mutated piles of metal and flesh that blast/burn/stomp every enemy out of existence with holy fervour
    3. We believe in a giant god that was once alive, but now is pretty much dead
    4. We rightfully hate every other race and only cooperate under specific circumstances
    5. We use some crazy stuff as weaponry (Adrasite and Pyrithite comparable to Warpstone)

    That's the Great Horny Rat, right? Is he the one that started the interbreeding?

    -Wait Hold up.

    @daveywavey are you a mouse or a what?
    double identity?
    What's going on?

    How are you going to fight the rat vs mouse war without being a mouse in-game?
    I wish I were deep and tragic

    Mouse through and through.

    In-game, I'll be using a little-known trick that we mice have, where we can take on the appearance of another species in order to infiltrate their societies.

    Don't tell anyone I told you...

    I second this! ;D I was thinking recently about how foreign and dangerous it 'could' be for non-Tulnar to travel the Under Realm. I could see all Tulnar being unhappy about trespassers wandering about in their 'territory.'

    WE should be nice to our new neighbors. It's not their fault their ancestor's were weak and cowardly.
    Now they just want to come hang with the cool kids. Who can blame them after all it is a...Verra nice neighborhood.

    And besides if they get to squirrely Steven said it was ok to burn their houses down.(Darn noisy warm bloods anyway)
