    (Death Knight) Your favorite race?

    Hey death knights, just curious about how everyone feels. Basically what the title says: what is your favorite race? Why?

    Is it looks? Is it the racials? Is it the lore? Or was it a blind choice when your first every character hit 55 and you were ready for a dk?

    For me, mine is Orc. I'm not sure I'm entirely happy at the moment but I originally chose that for the racials. Like anyone would, obviously, when I created it I had the "I'm gonna be the very best, like no one ever was" mentality when creating it so clearly I went orc for blood fury and racials.

    Now, though, I'm debating if the racials outweigh the retardedly large shoulders and stupid casting animations? I'm thinking of rerolling it to a blood elf female since they look good in most armor and have wonderful animations. What would you do? Is or is it not worth the switch?

    And finally, what's yours and why?

    As Horde, I think a Blood Elf or a Orc fit best as Death Knight (Have a female Blood Elf myself). Mainly the looks (gearwise and on the horse). I have no idea about lore, but I think the Blood Elf lore on Death Knights is pretty big.

    Play what you think looks best. I personally like the enormous orc shoulders. Makes them look strong and brute, as in my mind they should look.

    I personally just like the look of female orcs in Death Knight gear the most.

    My DK is Forsaken, I would never race change. Many people will say it has the worst model out of all races, but for me its the best race in game, also racials are not so bad for PvP (even that i play pvp rarely). And i think they look badass when dual wielding and wearing robe (thats my mog set).

    I never look at racials when it comes to picking up the class/race combo, i do not need it for DPS as I'm not in hardcore guild

    Tauren. I wish I could find the original piece of concept art that I saw that made me pick tauren but i've never found it since the first time I saw it.

    Male Human for me looks really cool and the racials is the best.

    I like the looks of a Blood Elf female (with a 2hander) the most, but as Blood I'm forced to being Goblin due to Rocket Jump. I don't mind the looks though, tbh.

    Seriously?

    Two-hander on any female Belfs looks ridiculous, it's like they are holding a dagger.

    That's the only thing stopping me. I like everything about how female blood elves look. Except that 2 handers are fucking minuscule. But one reason I want to switch is, go to wowhead and find the naxx25 dk set and view in 3D. Look at female belf. It's clean and it looks good. Then look at it on male Orc. It's just retarded. The only thing is I don't wanna be rockin' a top of the line 2handed weapon but have it look like a twig. Ahhhhhh!

    I started as a worgen at the beginning of the expansion. I just couldn't get used to the way they run and that annoying sniffing noise. I eventually changed to human. I really like the human look with the silver hair; it just matches the roleplay part of a dk to me.

    I like the human racials for PvP, but I am now suddenly carrying the flag, and the worgen dash ability would have been nice for that. Overall, I'm glad I went human.

    On a side: I started an orc DK on another server for the racial ability boon to pet dmg. I have always liked orcs and I will enjoy playing an orc DK fer sure. Again, silver(ish) hair.

    Female blood elf for the looks, for the interrupt is cool aswell for pvp.

    Male Night Elf for tanking all the way. Best racials, combined with elegant speed/animations. Nothing looks miss-sized and the animations are always fluid.

    I actually like how dwarves swing two handers. Like, a lot.

    Worgen. The cursed, reborn in death. Its such an intoxicating race/class combo to play. You also look really really really scary.
    Elyaan may have made this. Possibly maybe.

    Tauren.

    My whole raid feels really safe having a 9 foot tall immortal juggernaut defending them from the big bad Deathwing and his minions.
    Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
