    Oh, they also said "beastslaying could still be beastslaying without being 5%". Which also doesn't mean a revamp, it means a tweak.

    Go for looks.

    Going for minmax deeps is silly. Boss isn't going to die because of a ~3% dps increase of one person; And if that ~3% dps increase does kill the boss, odds are your raid needs more gear/skills/practice/etc.

    Well if anyone is serious about maximizing DPS you will race change (again) in WoD regardless if you change now for looks or DPS. You shouldn't even consider a change now for DPS if you wont rethink your decision in WoD release & care about your output that much

    Just because people do something for a reason doesn't make that reason valid. Frost DPS gets a net reduction of 0.05% and people cry 'NERF BAT FROST IS DEAD OMFG!" and the mass reaction is to re-roll Fire. Doesn't matter that the average result is that Frost hasn't lost any DPS; not enough players read the patch notes or the dev conversations or do their own testing so they listen to the vocal minority.

    It's the same with racials. Someone out there at one point did some theory math and it shows that if you do X and Y without flaw AND happen to be Race Z you can optimize your DPS a further N%. It's nothing but simcraft because in order for the racial to make an appreciable difference you have to perform at an extremely high level of play, have RNG in your favor for crits and procs, be fully buffed, never miss a GCD and depending on your class never ever have to move or switch targets.

    So sure. If maximizing your DPS to that degree seems purposeful... pick the best racial.

    If you want unique go orc. See them once in a blue moon.

    Otherwise go troll.

    Unless of course there's a poison-laced dagger in his hand and he's the one doing the killing.

    The haughty racial arrogance and good looks paired with the bad boy Rogue vibe... <3 The only bad boy I actually adore.

    If you are a PvE min-maxer, go Troll for horde, or Panda for Alliance.

    Go for looks, as that played a factor in my rogue choice, Worgen with the heirloom claws from the brawlers guild, he looks simply badass

    there was time when i was in chase "top dps" changing race few times, and racials are VERY small benefit, u must be in very top of players to get benefit from it but still troll racial is good orc also

    (for most of time i was troll/orc/ and 2 times undead)


    but i play goblin because they are epic
