    Best race for mage

    Like the title says. How do you think what race? My guess blood elves and humans (lorewise) but they suck in game imo.

    Goblins, 1% more haste = win

    Goblins would be my type :P I don't care much about it being lorewise. Goblins look cute <3

    Undead females look brilliant as mages imo, but I think Gnomes and Humans are the best.

    It terms of min/maxing Gnomes have highest intellect, Draenei have a hit boost so you can focus more stats on haste/crit instead of hit capping.
    Goblins have the 1% haste as mentioned above, which is about on par with the 1% hit from Draenei.(but instead you just don't have to switch hit into something else)
    Orcs get the extra pet damage, but thats pretty negligible unless you play frost and even then, its only about 50 extra damage per bolt. Not sure if it applies to mirror images or not? but the damage from them is also still rather small.
    Trolls get the Berserking, which kind of replaces the loss of Icy Veins for raiding specs, if only half assed.

    Throughout the years...

    Throughout the years I have played many mages. Human-->Undead-->Draenai-->Gnome. And out of all 4 I have to say either Gnome or Undead Prolly Gnome.

    It's immediately Forsaken of any gender. Screw racials, when you've got a badass casting animation like they do, fuck a 1% hit or haste increase.
    Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and for thy possession, the ends of the earth. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron. Thou shalt dash them in pieces, like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore ye kings. Be admonished ye judges of the earth. Serve the lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the son lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, though his wrath be kindled but a little.

    I like my female draenei mage. Great casting animations, 1% hit, free heal and a sexy look.

    1% Haste is 100% up time, troll berserking is what 10 secs now?

    So Berserking makes for a quick burst for 3 or 4 spells.

    Troll, Troll, Troll.
    People should ask "Best Troll Class" instead of "Best Race for a X Class"

    Undead for the casting animation, Troll for the mini Heroism.

    It can be chained with Bloodlust for a longer period of extra damage or when you need more damage "now".

    And it averages out to more haste over the course of a fight than the Goblin racial does.

    PVE Prob Blood Elf they have so much more base int either that or Goblins for that haste. it used to be humans for that + to spirit for fire mages way back when but no more. =(

    No, seriously, night elves don't do mage. They had some very traumatic experiences in the past, and won't tolerate one of their race as being a mage.
