    Saves you almost a full GCD in a 10 min fight from arcane torrent by not having to life fap. Hell yeah.

    I was waiting for someone to point this out. This is how I feel about my spriest. I can time burst better using Berserking.

    I fuck around with a Spriest on the side. DevP with Berserking up is better than sex.

    Its an expression. Go find some maturity.


    As a side note regarding Berserking, the proc gives 20% haste, or 8500 haste rating. Keep that in mind when you're looking at haste plateaus, it might net you some interesting ticks if you reforge for a tiny bit more haste.

    it was a joke. go find some sense of humor.

    anyway, OP. I greatly suggest you play whatever you like the most, unless you are in a sponsored top raiding guild that competes for world firsts. it's a game, not a job.

    I agree with you; personally I could really care less at this point, and will race change later because I absolutely despise how orcs look.

    But if you are progressing early content, keep in mind even a sub-2% gain is good. You may not (in fact, you will not) notice the gain by looking at Skada, but it's there. And you can wipe at less than 2% (a lot less, for that).

    (unless you are the goddamn most bestest elite player in the whole world)

    Also Rocket Jump saves lives.

    Play what you love.
    No, don't ignore simcraft. Just use it as a tool and not the bible. It's an excellent tool to see potential. Despite the passive/aggressive hate it gets.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    Orcs look amazing bro! For looks, as a dps caster I would most prefer male belf shockingly, but trolls and orcs aren't terrible.

    Yeah, I think some would disagree with me; personally I would see orcs more as shamans or warriors/DK.

    I think I did find a decent orc transmog at some point though, but still human looked way better.

    Racials are so insignificant (unless we're talking about EMFH) that it boils down to personal preference. If I am Horde, I go with blood elf, I like them most from a lore perspective, for locks but also for paladins, mages, DKs, warriors and hunters. On Alliance, it depends but usually night elf or human.

    This is incorrect.

    A passive dps increase is always going to be a passive dps increase.

    If you make a mistake without a passive dps increase, you will do less dps than if you make a mistake with a passive dps increase.



    I do agree that you should play what you love though, unless you are in a top guild fighting for firsts, where racials do actually matter.

    That's obvious.

    He was stating that the DPS loss from switching is less than the margin of error based on your performance, which is a different statement.
