Best Horde Race for a Mage?

Hi everyone, I'm faction changing this toon to Horde to PvP with a few friends, and was wondering which race was the best in terms of racials for PvP? I'm a bit spoilt for choice.

I'm thinking either Goblin (Rocket Jump), Undead (WotF), Troll (Berserking) or Blood Elf (Arcane Torrent). Which one would be the best for PvP?

Thanks in advance.

Best race is whatever suits your fancy the most. If you are all about Performance, then Trolls, Goblins, and Orcs are strong pve. Trolls, Goblins, Orcs, Undead, and Blood Elves are strong in pvp.

Personally I'd go Troll or BE.

This. Being able to blink feral and rogue openers without fear of leap/shst repercussions is awesome.

So does Rocket Jump break Feral and Rogue openers?

Not quite what I meant, although you CAN rocket jump a feral opener if you're quick when you see the daze. I meant you can blink stuns when they have their gap closers up, because you can just rocket jump the closer. Same thing with warriors and heroic leap, but thats just adding insult.

Also you could rocket jump the garrote, but its not much more effective than just jump turning to deny them your back.

Be a goblin. We're sexy as hell, we actually have decent animations and more than 10 pixels, and rocket jump is just awesome. You can make warriors so freaking mad at you since you can take away that little charge>blink>heroic leap trick with your rocket jump.

BELF or Goblin for utility. Everything else is just looks....some are even rotten looks.

undead is a good choice but at the moment touch of the gave can break stuff like frost nova unless you immediately deep freeze it this is very bad when your trying to kite someone.
undead is my favorite race as mage but right now with the touch of the grave "bug" i guess ill call it they can be frustrating to pvp with
