In the upcoming April version update of Final Fantasy XI, changes are planned to adjust HP and MP levels for the various races of Vana'diel. Originally, Galkas excelled in the area of maximum HP, but suffered from a low MP pool, whereas Tarutarus had large MP pools, but very low maximum HP values in comparison. With this update, maximum HP values for all races but Galka and maximum MP values for all races but Tarutarus will be increased to balance the difference between the races.
What are your feelings on this racial change? Let us know about it over on the ZAM forums!

[dev1193] Adjustments to Racial HP and MP Maximums
In the April version update, adjustments to character HP and MP maximums will be made to reduce the discrepancy between races.
Maximum HP will be increased for the four non-Galka races.
Maximum MP will be increased for the four non-Tarutaru races.
* The hierarchy of racial HP and MP levels will remain unchanged.
