Ok Devs, by now you have heard the resounding cries of players telling you over and over again that racial trees (especially in regards to Iconics) are just to costly an investment compared to class trees.
Are you listening to the players?
So here is an EASY fix. Make all racial enhancements cost only 1ap. Reduce the number of APs need from top tier accordingly. This way racial/iconic abilities are more enticing, and are more incentivised over class trees to compensate for the lack of progression in those trees. EASY fix with balanced results. Do it to it!
