Uh... What about +% damage increase items? Like gauntlets? +20%? That's going to buff an orc way more than a human.
This is true. Unfortunately, the most common and cost-effective damage boosting item - the fine sword - benefits humans more than orcs. There are some good items that are nice for the high base-damage orc - knockback uses base damage for instance - but most are expensive and rare, and quite frankly unless you're intent on scumming it makes no sense to pick a race or class on the presumption that certain items or alters will be available,
Anyways, good to hear orcs are getting buffed. I still think they're too similar to humans, but so long as they have their own niche that's fine.
