Any preferred race for DK these days?

Death Knight
I wish there were Panda DKs, the could be a Death Samurais :P

But really, it really depends on your playstyle: if you want to pvp mostly go human. If you want to pve mostly go orc.
I like the blood elf lore and race in general so there is that plus arcane torrent is some nice free rp. Undead are a really cool lore race too plus they look awesome.
Personally humans but only for the race trink, gives me more damage in pvp and humans to me are the natural death knights.
Humans, Female N. Elf. ( Because the male N. Elf dk looks ridiculous. ) and Orcs.
Orcs da best.

Having increased pet damage.
Extra axe expertise.
Taking reduced stun times.
Having your shoulders look sexy as hell as well as the rest of your gear.

Mmmm damn.... I look good..... What was I talking about again?

I'll be joining the Orc ranks soon. Lok'tar O'gar!
If you're not a dwarf you're doing it wrong...
Alright, let's see.

For Horde:

Tanking: Tauren.
PVP: Blood Elf (Racial based.)
DPS: Orc / Troll. (Racial based.)
Looks: Blood Elf / Orc.

For Alliance:

Tanking: Night Elf (Dodge, and such.)
PVP: Dwarf (Stoneform is quite nice.) or Human. (Racial, also nice.)
DPS: Worgen have a nice crit buff.
Looks: Female NE or Male Dwarf, imo. Female Human also looks good.
I've been enjoying the 1% hit and the extra heal. In particular for soloing.

The serious lack of trolls in this thread disturbs me. Trolls win by default because of haste buff aaaannddd the voodoo shuffle with the added bonus of being a troll.
Its nice having my racials somewhat useful in pve now, being its Mists of repgrindia and unholy actually wants expertise now.

Uh, excuse me "Doppelgänger" but the less Trolls there are out in the world, the more wimminz there are for me (wimminz love the Trolls).
Anyone know how the undead racial is scaling in pve?
This thread needs more Cow.

I mean... who doesn't like Stale meat?

How much does it matter really, like for instance i feel NEs look pretty awesome as DKs. But im also loving how Worgens look, in the end how much of a difference is one looking at?


In terms of stats I would recommend troll for the berserking which is essentially a mini bloodlust and rune speed on demand or orcs for the stats. not played alliance enough to know much on them.
Correct me if I'm wrong but Berserking is not pure Haste but just affects melee, ranged and casting speed.

In other words, it does not affect the cooldown of runes.

Still very powerful (more Killing Machine/Sudden Doom/Scent of Blood procs).

says specifically "increases melee, ranged, and spell haste by 20% for 10 seconds" which can and will effect runes. It always effected runes before because it increased your casting speed which in turn speeds up runes it just didn't say it was a haste effect.
Plate on Orcs looks very boss, mind you the 2h'r animations: flex! Undead look pretty awesome to as a DK, can't really go wrong with either (I usually switch between those 2 races every few months). Orcs do have Expertise with Axes which tends to give them a slight edge. Far as Alliance I'd rather be a Gnome over a Human... Humans, male and female, when they walk both looks like they're rocking depends and/or took a big dump in their pants, mind you their faces oh please make it stop.
Horde: Goblins
Alliance: Humans
