Troll Racials

Druid
I'll preface by saying I'm not interested in min/maxing here for some kind of pve endgame optimization. It seems to me like the Troll racials are just bad for druids.

Berserking - Always good, no question.
Ranged Specialization - Wasted on a druid.
Da Vodoo Shuffle - A pretty cool racial, good for any class, but arguably useless on a druid.
Beastslaying - Cool for skinning/leatherworking/leveling.
Regeneration - Not as useful on a class with rejuvenation.

Are these assessments accurate? Am I making a big deal out of nothing?

Also, I plan to level my druid with agility/stam heirlooms, and maybe pick up some healing gear from dungeons as an offspec option.
I'm a Leatherworker. Combine that with being a Worgen Druid, and that's epic.

:D

Wasted on any class but a hunter now.

And those rare raid bosses that get categorized as "beasts".

But it all comes down to:

It's just so damn good all the time.

Edit: not to mention that if you are going horde then the racials are by far better than taurens....unless you want to just pick flowers all day long.
I add Berserking with my super burst.
But but.. you're a bat, a cat and a bear with a MOHAWK!
That beats all racials
^ Indeed
Troll makes the best horde balance dps with beserking and worgen the best alliance balance dps with 1% extra crit. Personally that beserking seems much more attractive with the way balance uses it's 3 minute cooldowns (hint: bind it with celestial alignment).
Beast Slaying works versus druids, hunter pets, etc. in pvp. It's situationally beneficial but still pretty spiffy.

They should have made it work vs worgen and pandas too, just saying.

Didn't think this would be so :O

5% more on feral druids is no trivial amount.
