Human Mages (PvP)- What race will you reroll?

Mage
With humans racials being utterly useless for PvP combat, what race will you reroll?

Gnome - (snare removal, arcane resist, 5% extra mana)
Dwarf - (Disease, poison, and bleed removal + temporary armor)
Night Elf - (stealth mechanic, nature resist)
Draenei - (heal over time, spell hit, shadow resist)
Worgen - (sprint, 1% crit, nature+shadow resistance)

or...
Faction transfer?
Stay human?

I myself will be going Worgen for the sprint. Being able to gain distance on someone or escape from an unfavorable situation faster seems to be optimal (LoS-ing in arenas), though I must admit having shadowmeld would be interesting for Rated Battlegrounds.
Stay human, they'll buff humans after they get their race change $. PvP will be so messed up for the first 3-4 months(or longer) of Cata that having a worthless racial won't matter as much.

[qq]TBH you also might as well make a new main, Mages lost almost all fun factor for Frost and Arcane.[/qq]
It's quite possible that they may buff it after the fact. But waiting on Blizzard to do things, even when they specifically say they will be doing them, hasn't ever done anyone any good. That, my friend, is the path towards self destruction.
I'm still wondering where the racials revamp went.

Paying 15$ more because they nerfed your racial just seems pretty stupid to me.

Unless you're really serious about the game it's not worth paying 15$ every time they decide to nerf a racial, and it's kind of sad to see so many players support what is likely intentional imbalance for profit.
Even though the racial was useless, bad racials (or no racials) are not enough to make me race change. I ended up going blood elf when I changed to horde to join a new raiding guild though.
You should probably stay human. Some of those heroic trinkets simply #@%! on a standard PvP one when used together.
Seebach is and will forever be a human.

Gnomes are short
Dwarves are drunks
Elves are treehuggers
Draenei are too muscular
Worgen are eh

Human are the most iconic heroes ever, with a never say die attitude.
Dieter Seebach?


Haizen Seebach actually.
I'll probably go goblin, but I'm undecided as of yet.
I'm definitely staying human. Not only do I love the feel of the race and the look, but from a racials point of view, getting an extra 10% reputation is definitely the best racial early in an expansion.

I'll definitely be making a second mage horde-side though, goblin.
You get an extra trinket at the cost of putting your "insignia of the ..." trinket at a 1min extra cd.
How powerful this trinket is depends on what trinkets we will have access to come cata.
Have you seen all of them?

1 extra trinket, is still one extra trinket. Seems far from useless. I think the word Balanced is much more accurate ^^
Sup? I'm a G nome. Chillin in the club sippin some brewskis.
Say Worgen backwards... there's your reason for never race changing to worgen...
