They say they want racials to be a choice and not required, but at the same time they only put guns in as drops in 1/3rd of the content.
To be fair, 1% crit isn't gamebreaking.
I'm a Feral Druid (Bear), but I picked Worgen (+1% crit) instead of Night Elf (+2% avoidance). Sometimes the looks matter more than whatever you can pull out of racials.
Oh I definatly agree, thats the entire reason I picked a dwarf. I just feel like if they are going to have the racial only cover a specific weapon type, they should at least make that weapon more available. Maybe it's just because I like the look of guns over bows regardless of the race.
I think no matter what, it's still whatever weapon you have equipped... it's just the LOOK that changes... not the type. So say you have a gun equipped but change the look to a bow, a dwarf will still have it's gun racial. Now, if the dwarf has a bow equipped but changes the look to the gun, it won't give him the racial...
Thats what I thought it would be like to. I believe according to the Transmogging rules I read (I havn't actually transmogged anything yet) that only a gun can be transmogged into a gun, same with bows and crossbows to.
