as much as i see your point of view,and am also a "suffering elf"-i really don't believe making more race exclusive stuff is going to make any of this better.
the game started from the base up as a jack of all trades game, the only reason it isn't anymore is because of these stupid races they added.
you could argue they stopped doing the jack of all trades when they added dark knights, really. can't have both.
what the races need are something that makes up for what they don't have/replaces what they can't use for something of equal use.
(and i don't mean for the sake of using it, make it strong enough to compete with what they are missing out on)
and to be quite blunt about it, a few int or mana points aside. magic is the most universal skill set in the game if you ignore dumb alchemy.
while the stat ideas i had probably aren't perfect, especially after this "rebalance" i did have some ideas for replacement weapons:
as for them not being as good with weapons that use str, well.
i dunno, honestly. theres no way around it without them giving them better str gain.
and at that point youd may as well make all the races entirely equal,no?
its kind of an endless loop of "jack of all trades" or "jack of some trades with a few minor damage losses"
i think my weapon variation idea would at least keep them unique without really messing with the stats too much.
it doesn't do anything for the more recent multi race skill sets though, sadly.
