I actually like some of the combat racials on alliance. At least defensive ones like stoneskin, escape artist, and shadowmeld. They aren't passive or macroed. (on the other hand, I like the passive dodge racial on my druid tank). Explorer isn't that good though, it's not even a "bonus ability". It's a profession buff, if you count playing "red light green light" a profession. I'd prefer a mining buff (+10% ore/gems), and my main dwarf isn't even a miner.

I think tertiary stats is a good idea, like a flat bonus and/or a percentage increase from the stat on items. It would provide some differentiation, but be less likely to have people switching factions en mass. Unless they made a raid where an alliance racial was clearly better, in order to get some of the faction balance back. Like if you had to rep up with a boss each time you fought it (jk).
