For DPS increase in a PvE enviroment I would go Draenei. You get plus 1% hit.

You honestly only go dwarf for resto pvp. Stoneform is too good against melee comps in arena. My personal favorite thing about femdwarves is casting with pigtails.....too funny!

For any other reason it can go either way, spacegoat or dwarf.

Dwarf for the beard. Also I find that stoneform feels more effective to me than at any other level at 85. I've been told that it upsets ferals greatly. ;)

That said, draenei is certainly a little better in a pve environment.

Honestly the racial differences are so miniscule. Totally aim at the race you like the most visually.

I would actually disagree. For PvE yes, the differences are miniscule, for PvP, dwarf is amazingly better, the biggest weakness that shamans have is a lack of real defensive cooldowns., stoneform provides an additional, albeit small, cooldown. 10% DR could mean the difference between surviving or not when you're getting focused.

stoneform also drops bleeds, which is useful against rogues/ferals/warriors.

Draenei, clearly.

Stunties need not apply--for anything. Your eyes aren't lying to you.

Draenei = occular perfection.

Dorf = eye bleach needed.

Definitely Draenei, because dwarves are, well.....dwarves.

But in all seriousness, as people said above, if you PvP - go dwarf. That racial is far better in PvP than the Draenei one.

I enjoy being an enraged knee biter. I'm just not a Draenei kind of guy thought. Since bc hit I've never witnessed their starting zone....

Who in their right mind wants to play a toon that resembles a rotting tree stump?

Go for the Draenei - we's sexy as hell!

dwarf shaman is slightly superior in pvp.

either choice is good for pve.

never cared for the bipedal space goat thing, especially the females, since they tried to make a goat into a sexy creature. just doesnt work for me.

Im sorry, but stoneform only works for ferals and rogues. Honestly the little 40k heal from gift has saved me or my partner many times. Also, keep in mind that Gift is considered a holy spell, so if you get locked from your nature heals, you can throw that out in the mean time.

Love my space goat, but I will probably go dwarf to change it up. Been Draenei since BC with no complaints

**edit: I will be race changing for the casting animations. I really like male dwarf casting since spinning pigtails of the females doesn't do it for me.

And the waggle racial, better than any hit.
