Undead vs. Goblin

Warlock
I can't seem to decide which race to roll as a Warlock. I like the look of both equally as well as their racials, so I'd thought I would ask the Warlock community to help me make a final decision. Thank you for your input.

Undead or Goblin

/discuss
I do like the goblin 1% haste, but I find that will of the forsaken, cannibalize, and the touch of the grave are quite helpful.

It's just too bad the affliction and demo mastery don't buff shadow damage anymore, since it seems the unholy dk mastery actually buffs touch of the grave too.
Between the two, Undead. The haste is nice, but I would agree with Meynos, touch of the grave and will are two very nice things to have.
My shaman is a goblin. While I really like undead the rocket jump for goblin is just amazing.

Getting knocked off of flag area in Eots, just jump back. There are also a bunch of placed you can get to that give you an advantage as ranged with it that other classes cant get to. I really think its an ability that is way under appreciated.

Touch of the grave is amazing though.
Allow me to point out that, including myself, the four warlocks who responded are all undead.

Dark Lady watch over you.
Undead obviously.
Like the other zambies said.
definate Orc
definate Undead
Gob.."looks at forum" undead?..ya undead.......i want to live.
For Sylvanas!
Blood Elf!
Zombies or Gremlins? I went with Gremlins.
I am currently trying to decide between Orc or Undead.
Sheer awesomeness of the Orcs or Zombies?
UD! I just can't stand the shoulders on orcs. Having my face clip through armor is annoying as all get out. Bloodfurry is nice, but with TotG/WotF and the undead look/cast animartions foresaken is my choice.

Lol @ dead people being more aesthetically pleasing than any other race.
Undead, they have the best combination of pvp/pve racials. They also look the best in most of the tier sets for transmog and have a cool casting animation. Alliance best is gnome for looks, worgen for racials...
While I agree rocket boots can be VERY cool and useful, unfortunately the proper situation to use them is rare for a caster. On a melee toon they make a great gap closer but I have to say for caster I'd recommend UD.
You will be a human!!!! I command it!!!

Actually Humans have the best racials, every man for himself is a free trink.

Goblins with the 1% spell haste is "nice." And I will say the mobile bank is convienant, but I never seen much of a use for the rocket boots, but I haven't really thought of creative ways to use it.
As for UD, We have canabalize, and an RNG heal with touch of the grave, which I do see, but never really notice a huge benefit compared to my Siphon Life talent, WOTF is alright in PvP, but it shares a 30 sec CD with a PvP trinket, and sometimes, if you break out of the first one, you can't use your Racial for the incoming second fear.
To be Honest, if you care about Min/Maxing, go with Orc, Blood Fury gives a DPS boost, and the plus to pet damage is great. Also Hardiness isn't that bad, since Locks don't have a natural CC Breaker (With the exception of the Unbound Will, which is talented and costs 20% of your max health.)

I personally chose UD just for flavor purposes, this was my first toon, and didn't even know what WoTF did, but having a a character that was killed, enslaved, and broke free with nothing but a thirst for hate and vengeance, seemed fitting for a class that is essentially a Pyromaniac Vampire, that feeds on the souls of their fallen enemies.

Just my two cents
