    Exclamation Favorite/Best race for a Shadow Priest?

    What is your favorite?

    For Min/Max would have to be Goblin, but by far for me for Animations would be Female Undead.

    i think it goes Goblin > Troll > other

    but the difference between troll and goblin is very small, so i chose troll for the more controlable burst with their passive. rather have a few less % of dmg through most of the fight and then have much higher dps when neeeded (burning tendon on hc)

    Berserking is the better DPS perk if you are intelligent with it

    Obviously the only right choice is gnome shadowpriest.

    Troll > Goblin > Worgen > Draenei > Human > Gnome > rest afaik.

    If you aren't a very good raider I'd suggest Goblin > troll though.

    Also Probably Worgen > Goblin > Troll on fights like ascendant council phase two.


    If I was horde I'd definitely roll Troll solely because of how good Berserking is. It's like a free PI which you can control yourself.

    Think there have been quite a number of threads regarding this earlier but, Troll then Goblin for min/max, but really I would put that aside and look to appearance and casting animations. Racials have been known to change.

    This person is more right then all the rest of you put together. Female Undead animations (caster and melee) are far and away the best in the game. Who cares about some piddling racials? :P

    I always go for the troll priest; partly for the cast speed racial, partly because trolls are by far the superior class!

    How would being a goblin help not so good raiders? D:

    Because the haste is passive as opposed to on-use Troll one.

    Right so as in not so good to the point of not being able to press a cd when appropriate..not sure anything can help that kind of extreme case.

    There are people who are perfectly fine at the class in the groups they raid with who find it hard/annoying to time procs/on use abilities. Having a raical that you always have to mess with could just not be worth it to some people. It doesn't make them back or an extreme case.
