    Sorry if Im overlooking it but I have used the search feature which never seems to help me much here, so maybe one of you guys heard something. Do we have any heads up on when this information is coming? I was hoping that these particular details wouldnt be teased out, as knowing what class/combo Im going to play is a nagging thing Id like to solve and helps me be "there" in my vision. From all I know (think napoleon hill) this would potentially create a huge boon of creative energy into the PROTF project at large. Anyone with me? Sorry if this is spammy, just need to express this desire.

    I agree, I think seeing the actives could be really intriguing to many and help push players closer to their desired race/class combination. The passives were huge information, I would love to see the actives too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see them this summer, but I don't honestly remember any particular statements on them.

    Do we know there will be activated for races? In many ways I hope there won't.

    No I don't believe we know there will be, but I would be surprised if there weren't.

    There are actives and they are coming "soon". 

    Example: Battle-Hardened - Grants an innate 25% chance to resist non-magical Stun effects. This becomes 100% immunity to non-magical Stuns during Battle Trance [Active] <----

    The actives were pretty much confirmed, but for specific source you'd need to find someone who remembers where it was mentioned. 

    I'd definitely love to see actives as soon as possible along with (at least preliminary) skill details - theorycrafting is awsome but it can take quite a lot of time - the sooner we will get that information before we will be able to play the better.

    Nice to know Im not alone here. I guess many of us looking forward to that time when we can start making our sigs and stuff. Good times.

    Ben Dean  said racial actives "will be coming soon, they are one of the next things up in the queue" back in a stream on November 26th 2019.  

    I don't know how long the queue is but there have been half a dozen streams since then. 

    Hopefully this isn't one of those things we are told will happen "soon" but then never happens.

    They have said there are racial actives.  See my post above.

    I’d have to say that the active racials are on the top of my list for what I want to see. I love theorycrafting. It would also help to know things such as what abilities are based on what magic base. For example, are shaman healing abilities considered water? Are their dots considered nature? Would water based abilities fall under the “nature” umbrella? How many magic bases are there total?

    Haha...well ok.  I had asked something like "We don't know any of the official raicials yet do we?  (not even the passives?)"

    We know the Ogre get an active called: Battle Trance

    The only thing we know about it is that it boosts their Passive (Battle-Hardened) to 100% stun resist for the duration, but I am sure there is a main or secondary effect associated with it.

    If there is more to their active, they will be pretty stacked when it comes to their racials (passive and active). Help a fellow skar out and give us a sick racial to make up for our mediocre passives :)

    In the October 2019 Video Newsletter, Joppa said we can "look forward to an upcomming segment where we cover the innate active abilities as well as starting attributes."

    26:40 to be exact...

     

    I'm really excited for this information. It helps theory crafting and that builds more anticipation for the game in my opinion.

     

    And i agree with you here:

    I really hope SKAR have some good activate abilities - I feel like their movement speed buff is the worst passive racial ability. It is the only passive abllity dependent on very specific criteria to be effective, and its feels very underwhelming to have a maximum of 5% increased movement speed added with the prerequisite of having a specific group composition to do anything at all.  I love the concept, models and lore behind the Skar... But like i said - hopefully they have activate abilities that are more appealing so people will actually play them.

    I see the run speed inactive as being a pretty powerful skar monk ability.  Tag/Split pulling difficult content will require 2 or more monks (3 or 4  likely being ideal ).  That extra bonus run speed that stacks with all other run speed buffs will probably be pretty important.

    Great observation. I assume your dead on. Also, bump. Hopefully this gets some attention!
