Skar Passives

    I’ve been thinking..a good active racial for skar is a regen. Like upon using the ability regens every resource (health, mana and any other special resource such as “vision” for shaman or “endurance” for rogues) over 5 seconds.

    As for the amount it regens, I guess that would need to be determined, but I was thinking 50% of each resource. So 50% of your health, mana and so on. A good short cooldowns would be nice also..say 2 minutes :) (some balancing may be required)

    I think it will make a difference for classes that have abilities that work with max HP.  (I think the Skar will make great DL's especially since DL can increase things like regen and manipulate their HP so much)  i.e. It is very likely that the DL will have some abilities that manipulate their max HP, and the cleric has abilities that allow them to match their HP pool with their defensive target and then heal a target for that amount, while it is also likely that they will be able to further increase a character's max HP.  Dwarves can't be DL's and stats at end game will likely all a hard cap that can be met through gear/buffs.  If the DL is capable of raising their max HP by X%, this would make the Skar passive compound this effect, making that ability stronger on a Skar... and I am really thinking that the DL will be able to do something like this at some point.

    Im in the boat that the Skar should get a base level of regen if i remember correctly the trolls in EQ had it and when you twinked out a Troll with the Rubicite Breastplate it was noticable.

    You probably know this already, but in one Q&A stream Joppa said that the bonus numbers to stats from passives WOULD go over the hard cap at end game.

    I was really attracted to Skar until I got a look at their passives, extremely underwhelming besides the fear resist. 

    2% speed per skar would go a ways instead of 1%. Outside of starting areas how often are you going to have ALL skar group members to take advantage of the speed buff anyway?

    And not only is the 5% health increase a bit boring, it's really lackluster - I would prefer health regen. The issue is the 5% doesn't matter until you're down to your last 5% in a way? Health regen would have lasting effects in fight, out of fights. That would be extremely useful and not OP.

    I'll probably try Direlord Skar just for fun I don't think we can draw conclusions yet.

    Joppa commented on this in a stream not long after Passives were revealed. He tried to make it clear that Racial passives are about 'flavor' and shouldn't keep anyone from choosing the Race they like the most for their class. Because "all Races can do well in any Class that is open to them".

    So if you can't find a definitive reason to pick one Race or the other, then you don't have to worry. Pick the one you like the most.

    This is a great thread and I hope they give it a look over. The skar passives are incredibly underwhelming.
