      This race really needs an overhaul to be more like Pen and Paper, seriously why High Half-elves only have the Wizard Cantrip and nothing else? where is the Elf Weapon Training? or Skill Versatility?, why Drow Half-elves don't have the free uses of Faerie Fire and Darkness (well of the later i understand since there is no 5th level yet, but they should have Faerie Fire at least) and why Wood Half-Elves get both of their subrace traits while the other 2 get only of one?.

        Little heads up, could you show the "basic stats" for each "races" on the wiki, cause a hafl elf wizard only has 8 hp and 9 armor that doesn't scale well and you realize it when it's too late, thx.

          No Skill Versatility? No Skill Monkey for Bards and Rogues?

          High Elves and Wood Elves get Keen Senses and Longbow Proficiency.
