Going to start leveling a mage and was wondering what the top race was, I know gnomes have a 5% int buff so I was thinking that might be the race to go with.

This is for PVE only btw.

Trolls.

20% casting haste racial is like a Mage's wet dream.

For PvP, Goblin or Worgen.

For PvE, Goblin or Troll. 1% Haste all the time (plus the rockets) versus 20% haste for 10 seconds every 3 minutes.

For pure PvE the troll racial is pretty amazing, and I think is likely more DPS than both the goblin active and passive combined.

For alliance then you're probably looking at Worgen or Draenai. Worgen get 1% crit, Draenai get 1% hit. Both get something somewhat useful for an active ability (although the Draenai one would be a lot more useful if it was off the GCD again)

Even if they averaged out to be the same dps the troll one would still be better because it provides a big controllable increase in damage when you most need it. Stacking Time Warp + Icy Veins + Berserking for a 70% haste boost is incredible burst.


If you were well geared in Wrath, you would easily exceed the global cool down and would never stack all those.

I'm not saying Trolls aren't awesome (I'd never say that).

Orcs, with their buffed SP cool down look good.

Goblins are just awesome.

Tough choices.
