    Giving all IS Humans the Barb race is basically the same as giving all FS Firk the Boghopper race. Sure it makes for better synergy but there is a distinction between them.

    Yeah, let's get rid of a flavorful synergy ability that allows barbarians to playable at the moment and has already been nerfed.

    Wtf?

    I win lots of games without even deploying the Wild Chief. Barbs are strong even without Incite. I will agree that it is a cool and flavorful ability though. No idea why anyone would want to remove it. What we really need is a Barb with Unstoppable to make full use of it. Haha

    But more humans are becoming barbarians. Didn't we just lose Charger Knight, Inquisitor Magnus and Magnus the Fallen to the barbarian crowd?

    Just realized that Stone Clan also grants Unstoppable. Now there's a good Incite target, friends!

    You didn't lose them. Barbarians were always Humans from the very first day of Pox. Putting on a shirt doens't remove race just like being Drunk doesn't remove Dwarf or Darkmarsh dosn't keep them from being Boghoppers or not hugging trees doesn't remove race Elf.

    I really would love to see race: human, class barb. Vengeant Knight is the man right now, and i would love to use violent with humans. Plus i have wanted a good human bg since forever. My reasoning is selfish but it would allow more synergy I think.

    I don't feel like Ironfist Inquisitor and Magnus fit as barbarians, but Northern Cross Fanatic definitely does. I think that the distinction between Humans and Barbarians makes pretty much no sense in the theme of Poxnora. Are the Barbarians actually physically different, so they can't be called humans? Maybe they've got an extra liver, or six toes or something. This is made even more confusing by champions that ARE both Barbarian and Human. If what defines Barbarians is simply being born in a Sarnghaver tribe, and they become recognized as "humans" when they become paladins... how come Vengeant Knight isn't also Barbarian/Human? Why are the Wild Elf and Sarnghavian Centaur classified as Barbarians, as they're native to K'thir?

    It really just feels sloppy and an unnecessary distinction to me. If Barbarian was a class, then it could still have a theme, just like Paladins, Wizards, Witches, etc..
