Do you ever worry that you chose poorly when it came to picking an MMO race? For some Elder Scrolls Online players, this fear is compounded by actual research showing that there’s a disparity in damage performance thanks to racial bonuses.
This is part of a continuing (and fierce!) debate within the community about class/race balance, especially in light of recent racial passive changes by ZeniMax. “I was up in arms about these modifications, but you can’t argue the numbers and visualisations in OP,” posted one player. “I suggest letting it sink in… ZOS has damn near achieved the impossible here. Any non-DPS race, with adequate load out and rotation, is level-pegged enough for DPS role. Only Imperials are distinctly separated; changes are not final, and this broad data set helps to illustrate that.”
If you're still running around with your eyes closed screaming that the racial changes have made dark elf useless and that "there's no reason to be optimistic about these racial changes because theyre garbage", enlighten yourself with actual test numbers: https://t.co/LFmB0PFwvO
