    Humans give a 3% Spirit buff

    Trolls get a Haste CD

    Pick your faction.

    Re: Spriest race

    Human for spirit
    Gnome (in Cata) for intellect
    Troll for the haste racial
    Undead for lore reasons
    Tauren (in Cata) for hilariously oversized Shadowform
    Male dwarf for more hilarity

    Edit: Also Worgen for the 1% damage buff and goblin for the 1% haste buff

    I wouldn't take your racials based on Cataclysm since, y'know, they're changing all the racials around to match the new Goblin / Worgen ones. At least that's what I'm told.

    They will change the racials in cata (million times said...rofl) so just pick the one you find most interesting and pray for the racials.

    i wish it were like the old days were races actually made a difference e.g. undead for devouring plague

    Presuming that Tauren don't get completely shafted with racials in Cataclysm, I'm really thinking about switching to Tauren or at least checking it out on a PTR of some sort. A massive Shadow-y thing or a healing Tauren in robes is just too funny to pass up on.

    Plus, a Priest with a stun
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    I don't care about my cloth race as long as it looks good in clothes.

    Re: Spriest race

    At the moment I'd do human for Every Man for Himself and the spirit buff.

    But it might change, so who really knows?

    but the spirit boost isn't useful for shadowpriests. ok, it's useful but really not in any way gamebreaking.
    and I really doubt the gnome int buff (expansive mind) will remain for cata but otherwise it'd be the bestavailiable.

    Re: Spriest race

    I want to be a tiny purple gnome!
    Stand next to me in your shadow tauren form
    Everyone I know went Troll, the haste buff is nice. I stay Belf b/c tbh, I can't stand the way trolls run (and BEs are way prettier).
    I really wonder how the gnome/int buff would perform better than others... I'm sure our mana-batteryness will be altered in Cata but at the moment I am quite happy with my mana pool/efficiency.

    Re: Spriest race

    If you're horde, troll all the way there is nothing comparable for dps buffs.

    For alliance draenei is nice for +1% to hit for your party, but if your guild has enough draenei already to cover each party than that 1% is useless and draenei has no other usefull raiding racials. The human spirit bonus will give a minor DPS increase, and there are quite a few fights where they're 'every man' ability will break you out of fears/CCs etc to give you increased DPS time.

    Re: Spriest race

    Pick the one you like the casting animations of. If you end up hating your character because you really don't like the animations, +2% damage isn't going to help.

    Worgen for sure. Think about it. 1 percent extra damage and for pvp you have a sprint.


    Sprint + rocket boots + dispersion = wsg flag runner?

    Alas, igniting the rocket boots drops the flag

    I'd wait until we get more information about Cata to choose.
