Orc or Troll?

Hunter
Post Limit:
Going to level a hunter, most likely going to PvE mostly on it.

I'm just stuck between 5% pet dmg and like 200ish atp vs 20% speed and bow spec...

Has anyone tested this dps wise?
With RNG, its really pretty negligible. I'd go with what race you like the animations and armor looks on best.
I rolled orc cause I planned to go BM, and the 5% pet damage was a nice option, much like the AP Racial.
I am going to agree with Jonke for the most part. But as far as what -other- people have told me in the past, Troll would be the best race as far as the bonuses. I wouldn't really quote myself on that though.
Once you go troll, you never reroll.
Lawl, when i make a new character i never really care about their racials (well i kinda do but its not my 1st priority).

I mainly look for how cool they look srsly the racials arn't that real big, they're not game changing.

imo go troll because once you go troll ...you never re-roll

and cmon' mon' don' forget ta' voodoo

who doesn't like trolls??
Once you go Spacegoat...
You never wear a coat?
I wuv trolls!
I guess Orc for the 5% pet buff.well,it depends on the spec ur going to be!
Why not a Goblin or BE or Undead? hunter?

But in all seriousness:

Most of the time, if you roll a troll, the BiS weapon will be either a gun or crossbow, which will make your racial useless. As for orcs, if you are planning to go MM and/or SV, then your racial is not as great as it can be, for instance if you went BM.

In the end, it all comes down to which race you enjoy the most and which spec attracts u the most. Dont play the game for stats, play it for fun =)

Just my two cent.

Issue is a moot point. All testing has indicated that Orc is hands down the best race for Hunters. All you have to do is read Warcraft Hunter's Union, The Huntsman's Lodge, etc to see this. Yes, the +5% to pet damage is that good, especially stacked with Mastery in the Beastmaster spec. An example: 14.97 Mastery rating will increase pet attack damage by 25%, coupled with the Orc racial, that is now 30% increased pet damage. That's really, really good.

I say this as a Nelf Hunter myself. Kind of pains me that Alliance racials, taken on the whole, are entirely useless compared to Horde racials. Don't even say Perception and Every Man For Himself - first one is being removed and the latter nerfed to a 3 minute CD, no replacement for Perception being offered, leaving Humans with exactly one racial of any worth - Diplomacy with the faction rep bonus. +3% Spirit and +3 Expertise to Swords and Maces are worthless, as Spirit in general is useful to about 1 class in the game, and the +3 to Expertise doesn't even register on your character sheet, even as a non-Hunter Human (for instance, my DK).

Trolls comes in second place for Hunter races, and Dwarves a distant 3rd.
Has anyone thought about being a Undead Hunter in Caty?

I would have, had Blizzard made the undead pets look undead. Skeletal Wolf or Cat would be kind of cool. Aside from that...no

I picked Troll, because I like trolls. Picking a class based on racial abilities ruins the fun. Just my opinion.

I never liked coats to begin with...
