Tauren. Blood Elves are lame and any other race you'd have to be Alliance.


Holy Cows > Everyone else.
I just race changed to Tauren--couldn't stand my BE. While arcane torrent was nice, as well as SLIGHTLY higher base mana, I couldn't stand how stupid I looked all the time. Besides, pally mana regen is good enough as is.
Human. Not for the spirit, but for the free trinket.

This.

Stoneform is awesome. Plus, how many female dwarf paladins do you see running around these days?
Alliance - Human, because extra spirit = mana
Horde - Blood Elf, because arcane torrent is downright OP, and either sex you choose you're gonna be a hot chick.
And Dwarfs would be bottom tied with Tauren.
Dwarfs make the best prot tanks however.


So true - I feel like I'm cheating when I remove a bleed with Stoneform rather than popping a cool down.

My two cents:

Horde Side - Blood Elves for the Racials. Plus you can get your DE up and get ring enchants if you'd like.

Alliance Side - Humans are great for the 3% spirit bump.
Human, 3% spirit and if you're into pvp you get the racial stun removal
Female dwarf or blood elf
I like the humans. you get the human spirit buff plus everyman for himself buff when doing pvp
PVE
alliance = human
horde = blood elf
baddies, orc pallies are the best

Oh hai
overanalysis (parenthesis lists role count usefulness):
resistances are like armor, so not listed.

1. human - passive bonus expertise with common weapons (2), anti-cc ability(3), passive bonus increased mana regen(1). =6
2. blood elf - active increased mana regen (3), active silence (3) =6

3. draenai - passive increased hit (2), instant heal over time (3) =5
4. dwarf - stoneform (2*), mace specialization (2) =4
5. tauren - 5 enemy stun (3) =3

*prot would use stoneform more than holy would. ret could use it, but talents like Acts of Sacrifice make it obsolete. the damage reduction is slight compared to the armor reduction, likewise with glyphed divine protection.
Tauren by far. B/E's are conceited and full of themselves.
Beards are Smexy
Blood elf if you're going horde. Arcane Torrent is an amazing tool to help supplement our mana supply.

Or...

Human if you're going alliance. The spirit bonus can be quite helpful.
BE without a doubt.

Arcane Torrent is so strong it can be argued its a little OP for a racial.


lol not compared to my extra damage trinket, 3 expertise to swords, maces, and extra spirit also arcane torrent can be resisted or immune which alot of classes have those talents or abllity's they can use and i don't even think arcane torrent works vs melee classes that don't use magic. so most of the time when i'm about dead i just pop my aura mastery which is when the BE's want to use arcane torrent the most and they don't get a kill i just laugh at the fail racial so i don't think it's OP when a racial can be counter by mutliple things pvp wise it's not the best at all you can also move away from the pally when he uses arcane torrent to so he can't hit you, pve wise it's pretty good for healing though.
