I don't care what game you are playing, half elves are always getting the short end of the stick. Take their racial mount from Vanguard: Saga of Heroes latest update "Telon Rides On", which introduces faction-based racial mount quests for players 30-50. What the hell is that supposed to be?
The dark elves are rocking a spider, the wood elves get...whatever the hell that giant bug is supposed to be, and the half elves get a damned turtle. I suppose it could have been worse. They could have only gotten half a turtle.
