    Orcs ftw! Mine is undead though because I have 4 orc classes... Should have made the lock orc though.

    For each faction, in the order from best to worst.

    Alliance: Worgen, Human, Gnome, Dwarf.
    Horde: Orc, Troll, Goblin, Bloodelf, Undead.
    Both: Orc, Troll, Goblin, Worgen, Human, Gnome, Bloodelf, Dwarf, Undead.

    However, my lock is undead... but the race and class just go together. :]
    Kazeshini - Senna - Hextech - Nozomi - Homura - Riruka - Fearitself - Amyrose - Hatespike - Broku

    Please explain why Human is better than Gnome.

    Humans have 3% extra Spirit, Gnomes have 5% extra Mana and Worgen have 1% Crit.

    Orc currently gives the highest DPS increase (Bloodfury, 5% increased pet damage)
    Goblin is good too, 1% static haste and rocket jump; which is extremely handy in many situations, especially in this tier.
    Troll is decent, with the free haste potion.
    Worgen is the best choice for Alliance, with the sprint and 1% static crit.
    Gnome gives 5% extra mana, not intellect. A decent choice as well.

    ...Either way play which race you prefer, they are extremely similar DPS-wise; it's all about your skill as a player.

    take gnome and don't bother.
    He got a toxic dose of blight back in the day, and now he's deaf, blind, and mostly numb.

    The goblin racial can be invaluable, so it's kind of hard to rate that.

    I'd say orc.. ive always been orc on my warlock, always will be.
    Obviously Blizzard needs to hire more Pirates to counter the growing Ninja threat.

    Blood Elf

    Being the sexiest raider in your group is worth way more than the few hundred DPS at max the other races give you

    oh, and AT i guess

    Gnome used to be awesome because it gave an increase to your intellect, now it gives a minor increase to your mana pool. Worgen is currently best for PvE Alliance Warlocks due to the 1% crit and a movement increase cooldown.

    gnomes do not give intellect. just mana. which is pointless cause locks can just lifetap free mana anytime they want. same with spirit being useless so humans are out too, the only good thing is the human racial EMFHS.

    worgens are the best for alliance.

    Orc is best atm because of spellpower buff and pet damage +5%

    Troll may be better in later teirs when the spellpower buff isn't as good anymore

    Demo lock : Orc is best by a large margin

    Afflict : Goblin, Orc, Troll

    Destro : Goblin/Troll, Orc

    As the teirs progress Troll will probably pass orc in all but demo because orc is the ideal demo lock race

    No?

    Orc. Period. Hands down. There is no competition. Orc is a retarded ammount of DPS.

    Thank you for all the responses, i decided to go for Worgen since i am from the alliance, a good idea would be to put something like this in sticky, seems like many people ask this once in a while
