Man Race Traits
Racial Traits - what are they?
If you are a Man, it is good to realize there are special race related traits to earn.
In total there are nine Race of Man Traits. A maximum of 5 Racial traits can be slotted in your Trait Panel. Racial Traits are unique to each race and will enable you to do extra skills or to get some special bonuses (see the description below). Most traits can be earned to do certain slayer deeds at a specified level. These deeds will open as soon as you slay the required enemy species, like a goblin on level 13 or a spider at level 19, an orc at level 25, etc. You will earn a Racial trait as soon as you defeat the specified number of enemies to be slain, or as soon as you become 'friends' with the Race of Man faction in Bree-land.
When do Racial Traits become available?
The first Racial Trait, and trait slot will open at level 13. So, as soon as you hit level 13, you can start to work on your first Racial Trait. Here is a level overview of the the Racial Trait slots:
Level Available trait slot
13 Racial Trait Slot 1

25 Racial Trait Slot 3
31 Racial Trait Slot 4

Note: VIP-Players have normal access to the trait slots, free-to-play players will need to buy them with TP-points.
