Hello guys,

Im just thinking of changing faction to horde.

What would be the best race for a mage PVE?

I'll do mostly raids and a little bit of PVP, but i really want to focus on raiding.

Thanks very much.

Well seems like for some people is hard to be helpful and rather lose time trolling.

Anyways I think that rolling a Troll Mage is really a good idea, Berseking is really great casting speed.

Edit: I'm leveling another mage and it is a Troll. Thats why I say.

Definitely troll, by about a 1% margin. Spam berserking on CD and you'll hit that margin.

I'd definitely say Goblin or Troll. I've played both, I just seem to like the Goblin racials more.

In order:

Troll: Casting speed buff, root duration reduction.
Goblin: 1% Damage Buff (constant)
Orc: Berserking: slight SP increase

If you're min/maxing, probably troll. If you're going for style, undead baby, undead.

I thought you said style?

Orc/Troll for on-demand burst, goblin for permanent haste % bonus, Belf must be good for arcane (but I'm not quite sure if any better than other choices), and undead for something other than PvE.

Pet racials don't affect Mages.
