As of next update, many subraces will be slightly adjusted; in some cases, the changes will be more major (Athasian Elf, Athasian Dwarf, Athasian Halfling will now have ECL and different statistics overall). In most cases though, the adjustments will be minor and may not even be noticeable.

Since we first implemented subraces (about 10 years ago) and now, we've added new feats and NwNx support, which allow us to better represent these subraces as they would be in PnP.

Will any of these new ECL races be unlocked by application only?

For now no, since they weren’t before.

I haven't tried the new EE version yet. Do the subrace modifiers show up at character creation now or only after you log into the game?

Wirth Darmington II: Roguish noble

Still after you log into the game. It'd be technically possible to add a few of them as their own subraces and possibly something we will consider eventually for some (ie: Half Vistani, Aasimar, Tiefling and other planetouched races) but it's not a priority.

Are we going to get a comprehensive subrace list with all mechanical changes?
