    Any recommendations for race change?

    So I've been a Draenei Shaman for about 6 years now. I'm ready for something new. The big blue fridge is starting to turn me off, and I really don't like how the shoulderpads float in space.

    Any recommendations in terms of animation? I'd possibly be willing to change faction. My Shaman is Elemental and Restoration.

    Right now, I'm strongly leaning towards Dwarf.

    If you're fine with changing faction, go tauren. Or else go pandaren. Fluffy races ftw!

    Also I don't play female toons.

    Go Dwarf. With the new models you won't regret it.

    The only reason I am still Tauren, is the looks! In terms of alliance races Dwarf shamans look alright.

    For now, Dwarves would be a good change due to the expertise from maces (if you have a 1h mace), helps for spell hit. Pandaren are pretty solid too. But my opinion is pick one that you like the aesthetics of. Horde side, Trolls are da best, period. OP racials and they have the best animations.

    Alliance: Dwarf
    Horde: Orc or Troll

    troll is the highest dps. especially for fights like Thok.
    pandaren is probably a close 2nd.

    I personally still prefer dranei but according to spec troll and goblin seems way to go

    Went ahead and rolled a Dwarf.

    Thanks for all the help fellow Shaman!

    Gotta say though, the new models can't come soon enough.... Yeesh!

    I think male trolls look okay in it.

    Orc. Master race. And coolest looking Shamans.
    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.

    Pandaren look very smooth and modern, and their racials are good.

    Orcs and taurens look very mighty and big, but also a bit clumsy.

    Trolls are hideous, very ugly, extremely long arms, hunchbacked, naked feet, tusks break every possible head piece.

    Draenei walk very weirdly... would not recommend one.

    Dwarves/goblins are rather short, so most of the gear's visuals will be too tiny to actually be noticeable.
    Tinker + Alchemist in a single class:
    Tank spec: robotics, steampunk hammers/chainsaws, grappling hooks and heavy machinery.
    Melee dps spec: doping yourself with chems and tossing vicious acids on the enemies.
    Ranged dps: rockets, lasers, TNT critters and explosives, shrink rays and sapper mines.
    Healing spec: chemical sprays, needles, exploding flasks and other chemical type abilities to heal.

    No racial could ever make me change from an Orc.

    However, I do have an alliance shaman as well and he is a dwarf. Started him as Draenei but all the gear looks bloody awful on Draenei. So I rerolled dwarf. Alliance shamans still feel weird, even after all these years.
