Whatever you prefer. If you want performance (until WoD from what we know at the moment), go troll. If you want looks, go whatever you like the most.
My opinion though is: Once you go troll, you never reroll! ;D
There are player races besides Troll? I thought those guys in my raid were bots!
go for the looks, so... trolls
troll rogue decent looks with racial that blows everything out of water, beastslaying carry guilds through hc thok
Considering that you'll be looking at the character for a long, long time, I'd say looks over minmax dps every time. Every single time.
With that being said, trolls look badass.
go for looks always, which races wears their armor in the best way, which race has the best animations, combat and non combat, are just a few things you need to consider when race changing.
Racials won't really mean a whole lot in the future.
Minmax that dps son! Trolls have the best racials and best looks!
Go for a troll imo. Undead too common, go for the Unique
I switched to undead from troll JUST because I liked the look better, honestly pick which ever you like the best as the increase in dps is minimal
***also, remember that they stated at blizzcon that they wanted to balance racials more for WOD so by the time it hits dps increase may not really matter
Rolled a Goblin when Cata released.
Still play it and for me its the best Rogue class (with Engi ofc).
I dont like UD Rogues, to small, dont like Orc Rogue, to big. Dont like Panda Rogue, too fat. Trolls are just ugly in all ways imo.
But ye i go for looks, i play casual and dont care about racials
BELF male, I know you want to
I always held a seething hatred for people that would give up their identity and looks for a little 1% bonus to something. Enjoy your character or don't bother playing it at all.
It's pronounced "Dur-av-ian."
As mentioned multiple times at the start of this thread, it's really all about whether or not the racials matter to you and/or the group you raid with. Hopefully the gap in racials will be smaller in the future, however... try comparing a profile like Dwarf Affliction Warlock against Troll Affliction Warlock for a 9:30 Thok kill, and the results would make you choke on your coffee. It's not far off the 10% difference mark between the stacked multiplicative bonuses (less important for rogues, thankfully) and Beastslaying (seriously, that racial on applicable fights is just stupid). I doubt anyone would really argue a 10% bonus isn't worth looking at... or 5%, for that matter.

I wouldn't go for min-max race unless you are going to raid world top 20 or higher.
If you go undead, please go undead females. I know re-skins are coming, but male undeads are just ugh, female undeads do frontflips on special attacks and their animations are pretty great
