Every Man for Himself is an instant cast human racial ability. It removes all movement impairing effects and effects which cause loss of control of your character.


The cooldown is shared with other similar effects, such as PvP trinkets. Since both effect and cooldown are identical to those of a PvP trinket, this racial effectively acts to give a free trinket slot when doing PvP, since you don't have to devote one to a PvP trinket. The true PvP value of this racial can then be considered to be the extra trinket that it allows you to equip.

Although equivalent PvP trinkets are available at level 80, below level 80 available trinkets have a 5 minute cooldown (as opposed to 2 minutes), giving humans a distinct advantage in being able to achieve this effect far more frequently below that level.

It has been reported that stun effects that reduce your movement speed are not removed by this racial.
