    What race to choose?

    Hello. My friends have forced me to migrate to Al'akir from Ravencrest because they think the server will lag too much when cataclysm releases.
    Anyway I will probably join them at Al'akir and is wondering what race I should choose (horde).
    I'm a shadowpriest and right now I'm playing shadowpriest dwarf (I LOVE IT).

    My friends tells me that they should have chosen Undead because of Will of Forsaken and the corpse eating ability but I doesn't like the undead-model or has such confidence in Will of Forsaken because it shares cooldown with PvP-trinket and I'm not PvPing at all actually.

    I have been thinking of female Troll for a long time because they actually looks good and have the abilities Regeneration, Berserking and Da Voodoo Shuffle. Berserking boosts speed and by that dps in fights when Da Voodoo Shuffle helps in PvP or PvE fights where u get frozen etc. Beast Slaying maybe could help in unique fight, I dunno. The regeneration maybe isn't for any use thought.

    And what about Blood Elf? Enchanting skill increase (Arcane Affinity), but that may not make any difference at max skill, or will it? Arcane Torrent gives back 6% mana during fight which can be pretty good in long boss fights.

    Again, what race should I choose as shadowpriest?
    As you can see most things leans to Troll but I would like to be convinced or maybe just discuss it.
    Thanks in advance

    troll for DPS, BE for mana. Simple as that.

    Pick the one you like the casting animation of. Unless you are going to be raiding and going for world first kills, no racial really makes a difference.
    Especially not if you get sick of the sight of your characer and the way they look.
    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.

    You really can't lose here. I chose a BE due to arcane torrent.

    Depends on the level you're playing on right now.

    ICC25-geared spriests have trouble running oom, so therefor troll is superior.

    You don't like the UD-animations? Preposterous!

    Undead have amazing animations in game. They're pretty useless in PVE though.

    PVE DPS = Troll
    PVE Healing = Blood-Elf
    PVP = Blood Elf, or Undead

    Truth. I really wouldn't rely too heavily on racials for your decision since they're completely revamping all racials come Cata. Pick what you like and want to play.

    Sharing a CD with a PvP trinket is irrelevant for PvE, it's still a useful racial.

    Troll for pve.

    Blood elf for pve and pvp, silence+mana regen.

    Ud for pvp, still useful in pve in some encounters.

    I, myself, play an ud female, vanilla love.

    Re: What race to choose?

    sticking with my blood elf, best looking :.. but i have to admit that berserker rage is kinda nice tho.. only using arcane when i heal/pvp, 6% is kinda good alltho since im healing as disc

    Re: What race to choose?

    The race you choose doesn't give you any major advantages and therefore you should pick the race you find the most fun/cool/whatever "cough" troll "cough" :P

    Goblin. The haste is marvelous and the rocket belt may end up being a nice extra ability in your rotation.

    If you can't wait that long, pick a troll. Trolls of both gender are beautiful and their racials are finally in a nice place.

    Re: What race to choose?

    I went undead because, when I rolled my priest, there were no blood elves and I didn't like trolls.

    Undead are sexy.


    But when cataclysm comes out, I'm planning on rolling a gnome priest.

    Gnomes aren't sexy...they're just adorable. Like a baby panda bear.
