I havent found anything on this. FFXI it was pretty straight forward but according to what i've heard regarding xiv you have complete control over your stats?

I think right now in the beta version of the game, all races have the exact same stats at level 1.

You have control. I think over time you can reallocate them but have not played with this function yet. Makes since, you don't want to be a magic user with really high strength.

Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone yet, it's only Beta.

Does it make sense to have 2 different clans for each race that have the exact same stats. It doesn't to me, just sayin'...

Having the same starting stats for all races makes no sense from a RP perspective.

While players can reallocate the stats points anytime in the game, what does it matter to have the same starting stats?

Well Shona does have a good point. But IMO SE wants a more secure bond with the character without having to worry about picking a race depending on the stats. I knew a lot of players who love playing and wanted to be the best at playing mage but werent too happy being a little taru. I think SE is changing that. And I hope my guess is correct ;)

so are you beta testers say that at your current levels, you cannot discern any differences in stats? Has anyone tried comparing same level characters?

common sense?
when you allocate your own stats, racial stats can't exist. the game wont allocate stats for you, so there wont be any difference in stats from race to race.
the only way SE will be able to implement racial stats is with starting stats, and race-specific gear.
the most SE could do with starting stats is give a race a couple more points in certain stats. which wouldnt make a difference because you could just balance it out by adding 2 skillpoint into that on your first level up. and bam, no more racial handicap.

common sense guys
