    Best Race For Mage?

    What is the best class for a mage?

    For Alliance, I know that it is all about the gnomes, but what about for Horde? I was thinking of race changing from a blood elf. Just thinking about what I should change him too.

    Edit
    Also with 4.3 supposed to be the resurgence of fire, is the 1% haste from goblins worth it? Or would trolls win out?

    Orc mages are cute. It looks like they're really trying.

    Troll is best when checking theorycrafting webbsites and after them comes Orc.

    The difference between racials are minimal.

    I've always played undead, female, and i'm never changing it!

    If you're being really strict pve wise, then go troll / orc / goblin. If you want the best looks and casting animation then go for Female Undead > all
    It Wasn't My Fault..

    As the above poster said, the racial benefits are really minimal, but the best one for horde is Troll.

    Troll -> Orc -> Goblin -> Blood Elf -> Undead

    That's the Horde race order I believe.

    Undead for life tho.

    Assuming you use Berserking whenever it is off CD, it is slightly better than the Goblin racial Time is Money, but the difference is minimal.

    Hahah, this was indeed funny.

    For Alliance I'd go with Worgen if you can ignore the casting animations and how you look in a robe. For Horde Troll.

    That kind of doesn't make any sense, considering orc has what amounts to a free on-use spellpower trinket, while blood elf has... arcane torrent for ~8k mana every 2 mins.
    It's called Bloodlust not Heroism.
    I used to be a good player once. Now I'm a casual

    Troll>Goblin>Orc>Blood Elf>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Undead for PvE.

    Also, threads like these are kinda frowned upon.
