Best Alliance Race for PVP rogue?

Rogue
Hey guys i wanted to start playing a rogue mainly for non - competitive bgs.

What do you think it would be the best race to play? Gnome for anti-root , Human for mx damage or Dwarf for fun factor / disease and bleed remotion ?
It's not a question. Human is the best by far. That goes for all classes.

Seriously, Human Rogues with WoU + PvP on-use trinket are going to be ridiculous this season. It's going to be like Unheeded Warning all over again.
Nelf...reasons are obvious if you look at Nelf racials and how they translate to rogue.
dwarf is still the only rogue in the game that can clear bleeds to vanish

yeah that's why i love it
Best alliance race for rogue PvP by far is Human, then Night Elf.

Humans allow for double trinkets which give you the ability to stack more AP and procs to do superior damage. For example the ability to use a Vial of Shadows, and a on use agility resil trinket.


Night Elf gives you Shadowmeld to dodge CC's which is why it is the second best, and you can shadowmeld stealth re-open or shadowmeld mount to get away.

Wood Elf!

I mean, Night Elf. Human is "technically" the best. But! Night Elves do flips.

Have you ever rolled a rogue or a night elf.

Nelfs racial only lets you stealth if you dont move dose not help a rogue much in pvp.

by the way, dont call out someone before you know what you're talking about. nelf stealth drops combat and allows you to stealth. it's kind of like a second vanish. though, it's unreliable. still, i'd never choose that to a free trinket. right now, i have the equivalent of a 2100agi use racial. nothing compares.


If given the opportunity (without paying for it) I would reroll/rerace to Human from NElf, however, I think that Shadowmeld, when used properly might be the most broken racial in the game in light of a Sub Rogue.
Night Elf Shadowmeld lets you drop combat into openers, freeing up Vanish for other uses or escapes. Using the racial aggressively is what makes it scary, yet people can't see past the MOAR DMG aspect of Humans for additional utility.

This.

You may get the extra trinket that can help to explode people as a human but the added pressure another findweakness or garrotte you gain from Shadowmeld can be downright nasty, especially in BGs and 2s.

Nicely said. Ill take another reset over extra damage any day.
I love playing as a night elf.

Today I attacked a mining bot, but two silly hordies decided they needed to protect this bot. Sprint, shadowmeld, mount up, I'm laughing.

Yesterday I wanted to re-open on a priest in AB, but had already used vanish, but vanish was the only cooldown I had used so prep seemed like a waste. Shadowmeld, stealth, I'm laughing.

Also best attack animations in game.

My $0.02.
Human by far
Anything besides human for pvp is stupid if your going for serious pvp. If your a casual just to with what you can look at.
Nelf, or human.

I mean, you're going to staring at the rear end of that character for a looooong time.

Think long and hard before rolling a dwarf...
Gnome or dwarf because killing someone twice your size is always fun


Jk go human
