Druid Ally Race

Druid
The biggest worgen pro that no one mentioned?

Faster skinning.
Worgen male looks more badass than Nelf male. All shadowmelds aside lol
Another worgen advantage:

Full appearance change available in barber shop.
Darkflight tho

There are a number of factors to consider here.

Worgen is infinitely better aesthetically...so long as you're standing still. Worgen has arguably the worst walking/running/casting animations in the entire game. Night elves always look stupid, but not nearly as stupid as the lumbering derplord that is the male worgen while it's moving. The good news is that druids are mostly in a shapeshifted form, which cancels out how aesthetically unpleasing that both these races are.

Night elf racial abilities are strictly better than worgen's, though.

Worgens also have that unfortunate starting area, which is very long, mind-numbingly boring, laughably buggy, and mandatory to play through.

The answer is night elves...remember, shapeshifted forms cancel out the blue skin, derp ears, roflhair, and eyelolbrows.

shapeshifted forms also cancel out the worgen forms.
macro two forms with all your shapeshifts then bam, you don't even need to ever see your
worgen form. you now have practically a human druid.
darkflight is nice for moving fast through dungs.
i barely pvp so shadow meld doesn't have much advantages for me
i would also say our bear/cat forms look better. but i rarely see those now due to artifacts.

Edit: still hoping to see new animations and textures for worgens next Xpac (don't have any goblin toons, but they could use a fix as well)
I'd say that 100% of the ally druids that aren't night elves are going to be worgen.

Zigra,
I lobbied so hard for gnome and goblins, it's depressing.
Shadowmeld to drop aggro is indispensible for getting thru open questing zones.
Nelf all the way. I also felt like the Worgen were shoehorned into the role of druid just to give the class a new race option.
I play worgen as guardian/feral and night elf for balance/resto. It just fits nicely in my opinion. Night elves using magic and Worgen using more bestial methods of attack seems the most natural to me. I fully agree that caster Worgen wearing dresses and waving their arms looks really weird so I choose not to go there.

As for Night Elves being superior because they have shadowmeld; your argument is reminiscent of a comic I read recently...

I think that http://www.darklegacycomics.com/594 is more apt.
