I think that they are trying to make it where Galka can be more then mindless brutes.
Do galkas need mp? i mean there isnt many galka mages

You surely know that it isnt many Galka mages and many melees, then why is it no STR+ and only INT and MP+??

the whole purpose of the RSE is to make up for the things each race is weak or lacking in, hence a galka gets an mp boost. A taru gets hp ad strength boost from theirs.

No. Humes are middle of the road. If you were to wear all four hume RSE pieces you would get +2 to every stat across the board, and +48 each to MP and HP (if memory serves). Some Hume RSE pieces have +3 to a stat, while another piece will have a -1 effect to the same stat, meaning you only get a max of +2 to every stat if wearing the entire set. Every other race, though, has stats that vary wildly. The idea behind RSE is to level the playing field. It raises the stats of each race that that race is naturally deficient in. The end effect is often that a race like Galka can becomes a kickass mage, Taru become great fighters, etc. It gives each race a stellar chance at jobs they might otherwise be discouraged from playing. It doesn't mean that any race is better at any job than any other, though.

Player skill > Equipment > Race. One of the best BLMs I ever played with was Galka, and one of the best PLDs was Taru, so any race can play any job and be excellent at it.

Not arguing with you, i completely agree with "Player skill > Equipment > Race" just noting that Taru are quite good PLD's. They may not have much DEF but their MP and MND makes them just as good as ,if not better than, Galka PLD's. Taru WAR would be a different story, (still very plausible tho)

The RSE for Galka's are to make up one draw back the plague the Galka race and that is a lack of mp. On any server you will see a few jobs that benefits from this gear. It a must have for all most galka mage jobs. And as a PLD it is also good to have a RS gloves or boots to hold hate better.

This is just like a Tarutaru's RSE, since they don't have alot of HP their RSE gives them a major HP boost.

Dragon, I think you are missing the point. RSE isn't supposed to enhance what your race is good at, it is supposed to enhance what your race is weak at so it makes playing a job in which your race isnt made well for can play it with more ease. That is why the Tarutaru race gear has a lot of + HP, and why Humes have a little bit of everything since they are already evenly balanced and don't have an overly strong area.
That, and

i believe this is the body piece for galka race specific gear, so it should be race:galka Job:all and type: race specific
