Will you be staying true to your favourite race after the changes, irrespective of buffs and nerfs, or will you race-change in an effort to be best in slot?

    Not sure yet. As others said their are more options now. Things that might be interesting to try. For me though might change because wasn't very attached to my altmer in first place and Nord just looks like more fun now. Then again I do have my 10th character slot open. I might just make Nord Templar tank. Which means my nercomancer will be free to be anything I want.

    Will change my Argonian magplar to a Breton. Have been wanting to do this for months but I refuse to waste crowns on those tokens. Will miss the argo's swim speed however.
    Edit: I didn't vote simply because I'm changing, but it has nothing to do with being optimal. I just wanted to be in EP and level a magplar, but at the time did not have that any faction upgrade.

    I play the game to play a game. For entertainment, which I get loads of from ESO.
    I have a Nord, Breton, Wood Elf and a Khajiit. None of which is my favorite race.
    I do understand that a lot of us get more involved with their characters, and I can
    appreciate that. I, however, am not wired that way. ALL my characters' races are my
    favorite, when I'm playing them.

    I'm going to race change to my favorite race because when I created my main I was chasing the META, not making the character i actually wanted.

    Since Khajit are now good enough at just about everything and we're getting free tokens, i might as well go ahead and change.

    I will not change the race of any of my existing characters because they are exactly what I wanted them to be.
    I don't like or dislike ES races because of their racial passives; the only bonus that could make me create a Nord character, for example, was a free 'Nordic' house, mount or pet (or all of these together) :) .
    'Ursus arctos arctos' translates to 'Bear bear bear'.

    I will race change but for the reason that there is more diversity in the options. Now it feels like if you aren’t an argonian tank you can still have great racial passives with nord, imperial or orc. It feels like a good time to diversify for more character depth. All around good changes.

    Right more options is fun 😎

    You could also do redguard. They got some old and new passives to work with m

    This is an valid option.
    Do an dummy test now, do one on pts, then do one after race change note the differences.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.

    Might spend the remaining free Token to change my DC Magden into a Lizard.

    For tanking it's not really a dummy thing.

    Imperial will sustain, resources and cost reduction along with stamina and health

    Nord will have restiences and ultimate

    Redguard have stamina sustain and snares

    Orcs stats, speed, off DPS, and self heal

    Bosmer you could build stamina regain tank

    I still play my -characters- no matter what gets buffed or nerfed, as I have done throughout all the past rebalancing updates.

    The only reasons I would change my race for is if either a character idea gets reworked (like when warden got released and I redid my nord storm priest as a nord mountain man and reworled the original nord into a deadric executioner, and later racechanged into orc because that just made more sense for a brutal, nasty murderer chopping off heads with a grin, right?), or a new race might get released that fits a character idea better then what I picked back when I made the character.

    I'm going to reroll my female Dunmer into something that doesn't look like a daedric curse gone wrong. Maybe a Nord since I don't have one yet, or a Dunmer male.

    Other than that, I'll just keep 'em banked in case I make another swamp horror.

    My Tank Khajiit is not gonna change, I love it to much.

    But, my 1st char who was a Warden High Elf is probably gonna change, not because of the change, but because I've pick this by following meta guide who help me alot in the start, but now I just want a race I like, and high-Elf is definitely not one of them.

    Dunno which race is gonna be though, need to read some lore before I choose.
