Orc or Tauren Hunter?

I mean... I'm sure the racials generally won't matter endgame, so on a scale of badassery what do you guys think? I'm leaning towards Tauren because my starsign is Taurus (yeah I know I don't care).

On that note I'm also kind of thinking about rolling a shaman rather than a hunter. Since both classes can be both races this doesn't solve anything. So can I get some input on both matters? Orc vs. Tauren? Shaman vs. Hunter? I hear shamans are kinda poopy right now, but I suppose that's an opinion, and kind of subjective to who's behind the keyboard.

PvP or PvE?

If PvE then Orc.

If PvP then go play a different game. Wow is dead for PvP.

If you're going Hunter, Orc would be better, as Pets get a boost, and Bloodlust is a nice on-use racial.

If you're going Shammy, either would be good, but Tauren might be a bit better if you're going Melee Shammy (due to having a Stun and a Health Boost).

Ignore those. A huge majority of the 5.3-PvP complaints are by gankers.

I think it's pretty trivial... People just like to cry about things they don't like

But Hunters are getting a big overhaul in 5.4 and not for the better, so that's food for thought.

Edit: Nevermind, 3 month necro. Please don't necro old threads.

Are you kidding me? 5.4 has been a terrible patch for hunters.

Whichever one you like better. If it were me, I'd pick a Troll hunter. Not for the racial trait or PvE vs PvP blah blah blah - that's all BS. I like Trolls because they are cool.

Play what you enjoy and you will, you guessed it, enjoy it.

Why not? Who cares when it was written, ideas last a lifetime.

I would suggest Orc regardless of pvp or pve because as a hunter you will likely be targeted mercilessly, and Taurens simply are a bigger target. The worst decision I made was making my shammy Tauren, regardless of what spec he is always the first one targeted in pvp. The extra stun Taurens get hasn't made up for this as far as I've found, and I've done a decent amount of pvp.

ORC

Orcs are the first hunters. Sure, Tauren also love the hunt... but there's something about a cow, riding a ram, taming a lion that makes me feel weird.

IT AIN'T RIGHT!

Also hunters are quite easy in pvp, the easiest imo. Shammy is still REALLY good though not sure who told you they weren't, but wow is a game of gear first and foremost esp at lower levels. Shammys get to heal, and as an ele can cast on the run. I've seen shammys on top of raids and bgs.
