Best disc priest race (pvp) in MOP?
I haven't heard of any changes to Shadowmeld, so if it stays the way it is, it'll probably be the best still. However, it's a purely skill driven racial. If you are bad at the micro game and timing things, you don't get as much use out of shadowmeld.
Undeads get a new racial I think, haven't read up on it though.
Humans... it's nice to be able to have Every Man For Himself in a PvP situation. The extra spirit is great for healers. The Rep Gains are nice. They're not a bad choice.
Gnomes... Escape Artist is a nice PvP Ability. The extra mana isn't thrilling, but hey, Priests can always use more mana.
Dwarves... Stoneform is good in PvE and PvP. The Archaeology keystone boost is nice if you do it. And well, Female Flying Hair is something worth noting.
Night Elves... Reduced Hit is nice at PvP. Shadowmeld is great at PvP.
Worgen... the extra crit is nice for DA procs. Darkflight is nice in PvP when you take Phantasm, it's your only real speed boost.
Draenai... The extra hit is now moot for Disc as we get hit capped by default now. Gift of the Naruu is a nice HoT that can't be dispelled, and many of my Draenai Priest friends have stories about how it's saved the day.
Pandarian... the bounce isn't too amazing since we get Levitate. The double food buff is great for PvE. The 4 second stun is great for PvP.
Blood Elf... having a silence is great for PvP, and getting some Mana back is great in PvE.
Goblin... your own bank, always pay the cheapest prices, a racial jump (great for PvP), and 1% haste? What's not to love. Okay, there aren't nearly as many male goblins as females due to the overwhelming cuteness.
Tauren... a stun is nice to have in PvP. Most people think the extra Stam isn't great for Disc, but it raises the Absorb cap slightly as Absorbs are capped at a % of the Priest's Health. So it's not a horrible choice if you go Disc.
Troll... Berserking is a great ability all around - it's not limited to PvE or PvP awesomeness. Pump out more healing? more Atonement? It's all good.
Undead... Will of the Forsaken is still good for PvP. Cannibalize can really help in a pinch at PvP. And now with Touch of the Grave, it can proc from Atonement style healing. They do have good casting animations.
So really, there aren't any bad choices for being a particular race. Well, okay, there's just one. Orc. But don't underestimate the power of the Light. We've gotten every race to convert, there's just one more to go.
