Racial skills are special abilities available to each of the playable races. They can be equipped on the five last slots of the skill bar, depending on their type, but cannot be used underwater. They may have various effects, such as condition removing or changing to a bear form, but they are all projected to be fairly weaker than their counterparts from professions that are specialized in similar skills. Each race has 6 skills. Racial skills will be available from the beginning of the PvE campaign.
In structured PvP, racial skills cannot be equipped to prevent any disadvantage between the races.
