The Goblins and trolls are weak! POWAH to the forsaken!
If you enjoy Troll animations over Goblin, go Troll, since it's better than Goblin.Goblins might be best, but I'd go back to troll any freakin' day. Cause I don't wanna be a little green slimeball running around.
And to the guy who said that Berserking was just casting speed. NO. It's Haste. Just make a lvl 1 Troll to check it out. Pop Berserking, tada, you now have 20% Haste.
my vote goes for goblin, flat 1% haste will always benefit you, and rocket jump is awesome, fights like staghelm where youre transitioning from scorpion to cat phase, or the other way around, allows you to get outside the circle quickly to continue dpsing. or jumping over or out of fire, it gives a nice boost to our mobility.
Troll's Berserking is much better than Goblin's flat 1% haste increase, however rocket jump is extremely usefull in some encounters where you need to move quickly. I personally would go with Goblin.
Forgot to mention, that it's easier to reach the soft haste cap as a Goblin.

Undead may have the worst racial in the game, but the casting animations are the best in the game. It's your call.
I prefer troll. The racials are debatable to which is better and I've never looked at a goblin and said, "O wow he looks cool."
goblin as an overall dmg. for burst troll wins.
Male Forsaken, for the hidden +10% to Sexy Casting Animations racial they have.
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.
shhhh! do not mention that on any fight you can use Berserking together with Lightweave, Power Torrent, pot, Hero/BL, DMC:V and or/TM proc. It would destroy the goblin arguments.shhhh! do not mention that or that on a movement fight a single rocket jump would let you cast an extra spell or two. It would destroy the berserk arguments.
Seriously, it has been common knowledge since Cata launch, that Berserking is miiiiiiiiles ahead of Time is Money. Why start asking questions now. I understand that some ppl prefer Goblins over Trolls, but don't come here, in a thread that asks which race is the BEST for Shadow PvE, and say that Goblins are better than Trolls, when it's simply... false.
5% extra damage vs. beasts makes it even clearer choice even if it's 1 boss per tier really.

Can someone run same with BiS gear too, would be intresting to see?
