    More like which parts don't...

    The poison blades don't work after logout/in.
    Xen'drik weapon bonus is not applying.
    SR periodically stop working after logout/in.
    I've not seen this one personally but I've read of occurances of the ability stat going away on logout/in.

    Yea, I noticed that the poison blade disappeared after logout. I thought it might have been because I was a monk and handwraps weren't blades.

    Nope its broken.

    I'm not even sure the Devs are willing to admit to much of this yet. Maybe its the shear number of stuff from U19 that broke is simply too overwhelming still...

    Drows are the gingers of DDO.

    Yea. Been holding on for my TR into drow because most of the racials seem to be severely borked. I would hope fixing these takes top priority...but given how much is broken in (B)U(G)19 I'm not going to be holding my breath.

    And it should not reset on login or manipulating ED or entering quest.

    Default Yeap, drow racial is definetly the worst

    I have to agree that the drow racial tree needs some serious fixes.
    Dodge bonuses dissapearing after logout, the whole tree getting reset and points given back but not allowing you to relallocate them, Venomeed Blades becoming inactive after logout, etc.

    And for anyone who doesn't believe it, here are some screens

    To top it off:
    Drow racial weapons are rapiers, short swords and shuriken.
    Ranger Tempest allows using DEX for to-hit and damage with light weapons and scimitars. But not rapiers, even though rapiers, like light weapons can benefit from weapon finesse, unlike scimitars.

    Fortunately, it seems the whole attempt to make DEX viable mostly fizzled, so this particular issue is rendered irrelevant, but still.

    A dex based tempest drow is now forced to spend 7 points in deepwood sniper to get improved finesse and use rapiers with dex to damage. Such and obvious improvement! lol... This should have been automatic...

    And burn a feat for weapon finesse too. *sigh*

    EDIT: especially since a melee focused tempest will probably be taking some of that deepwood sniper stuff for the sneak attack dice, so in most cases the actual AP cost will be 1 - the improved finesse itself.
