Horde: Belf Female
Ally: M/F worgen
Female Undead ftw :P
Orc, male. 1) Huge shoulders 2) Excellent racials 3) Nice casting anymations 4) Has boots (as opposed to mangled, redonculous appendixes of trolls) 5) Does look imposing
if alliance, reroll horde. Or be a Dwarf so you'll be invited in the best guilds of the server for the Race/Class achievement. Human is also an option if you PVP. Watching a worgen run when questing is something I wouldnt wish on my worst enemy. Female worgen look like they're throwing a bowling ball when casting. And see 4) herein.
Undead for sure!! Cloth armor is so unflattering on Orcs!
IMO the best matches are:
affliction - the sadistic forsaken
destruction - the violent orcs
demonology - any race
I chose forsaken demo with an affl offspec.
Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.
undead warlock looks the best imo
Horde: I'd go for either Undead or Belf, both rather suit Warlock lore.
Alliance: Human (my own lock is human, they're vanilla but sometimes a vanilla ice-cream with flavoured sauce is better than flavoured ice-cream) or Dwarf. Worgen are popular for obvious reasons (for me, being a Worgen and not melee should be a sin against Metzen).
Personally I've always been a fan of Gnome Warlocks.
WHAT is wrong with you people? Trolls.
I'm actually sort-of vaguely contemplating a race change myself. I'm boring human now, and I went human because of the rep racial. But since I am done with most of my rep grinds now, I felt it might be time to choose a new race.
For Horde I would go Goblin female or Orc. I very much dislike Forsaken, both in looks and in Lore, and I'm kinda meh on Trolls and Belfs. Goblin Female were the cutest thing in the game, but have lost that title to Pandaren (who can't be warlock so... ) and Orc's just have the total package, superior damage AND look good in any armor. My guess is I'd go Orc if I ever went Horde.
For Alliance it's kinda hard. I've grown familiar with my human male and they look kinda allright in armor, but that's about it. Humans have the PvP trinket racial which is nice, but I don't pvp enough to make that a consideration. Gnome females are cute but armor is invisible, Worgen male have superior damage and Darkflight, but they are kinda hunched and they have the mentioned mask problem. Dwarfs are just THE most fun race to be, and their animations are nice enough, but they lack in armor looks and usefull racials.
Guess in the end I'll just stick to my "boring" human male. He looks allright, and in Pandaria that rep racial will come in handy again. I'd sex change him, but human females look weird to me when they jump.
Orc for max deeps, Forsaken for dark and edgy coolness factor or Blood Elf for best looking armor (also verdant spheres lol)
You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.
