Fond of Draenei, personally. Their healing racial is nice, plus the base shadow resist can be useful at times.

Blood elves. Either male or female. The gear looks pretty good on their models, and gaining a free 6% of your mana every 2 minutes is incredibly useful. I use Arcane Torrent all the time.

As far as mana wise yes.
Their models look awful, no offense but yeah.
But I would have to agree, mainly cus that mana helps.
Under that would be either Human or Draenei.

And Dwarfs would be bottom tied with Tauren.
Dwarfs make the best prot tanks however.

Blood elves, hands down.

Humans have that spirit racial but the on-demand mana return from Arcane Torrent is really hard to pass up. The aoe silence from it is great for dungeons and amazing for PVP.

The other races have nothing useful for healing. Draenei have a hot but it is lackluster compared to your class healing spells. Shadow resist is moot since you have Resistance Aura.

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

Idk, to me dwarves have always been the best looking race. Racial ability wise though the best race is BElf or Human if you're playing Alliance.

BE > all.

I probably should have gone human for the bonus trinket slot, but my priest is human and I really prefer the look of lady goats.
