Faction Change Help

Wyrmrest Accord
So, as the title suggests, I will be faction changing today. There's just one slight problem.

...... Well two, if you count that I am in need of lunch (If you take me out, you're gonna be the one who pays. Musician's salary people.)

Anyways, I have absolutely no definite choice on the race. They're all just too shiny I want to hear what you all think.

The most probable choices for me are either Orc, Blood Elf, of Goblin. Though I'm completely open to more suggestions, other than Forsake, since I'm already leveling a Forsaken DK through Pandaria.

What do you think I should do, and why?
What are your preferred activity? Role playing, I suppose?

If so, all races have potential. You just have to sort what you expect out of your Rping experience. Blood elf lore is deep and you can have diverse options as a Sin'dorei, but most players are biased against people who chose to roleplay Blood Elves, and also it is quite easy for you to make lore misconceptions when roleplaying one.

Orcs are usually the military-type. Of course you would follow a more spiritual path, but I see you are a warrior and the rude, military, commanding stereotype is the one I see most orc warrior RPers with.

Now, goblins can bring you a more laid-back experience. They aren't usually deep emotionally and with their limited options they end up being merchants or mercenaries, mostly, with little attachments and loyalties.

These are just generalizations, of course you can chose a diferent path to roleplay your character, but this is what I've most commonly seen.

I honestly had the most fun playing a Blood Elf.

Why?

Because a bunch of people play them and allows for good immersion. You have plenty of choices when it comes to joining a guild and the roleplay -can- be found.

Just don't do like I do. A mute isn't a great idea.
After reading through these responses, Astrid's being very tempting, I decided on Blood Elf, since I'm familiar with their lore the most out of the other Horde races, plus I already have a Goblin and Orc I get on often enough.

Look out Horde. It's Tholasin time.
As a blood elf, the current story in game with us is pretty amazingly fun. The varied RP that is spawning from all current Horde plots is a blast though, so it would be a tough choice.

If you just take blood elves, and read all the lore on them, they are just amazing. Push away the whole 'omg BE rper' and actually just look at the race in general, the lore is great.

So I vote elf, but that's because I do love playing Emlee.

well, elf to elf is okay, i guess

Just remember not to let the 'fff you're a belf?' commentary get you down. It seems to have calmed down a lot lately though! Plus if you pvp you get an aoe silence that's pretty sweet.

What else embodies being Horde like being an Orc?

Being in prison?
The new lore with Blood Elves is one of the main reasons I made that decision, seems like a great rp opportunity.

Already have an Orc. So it's good enough.
Shoulda gone Goblin.
Hmm a new warrior in Silvermoon. count me in!

Now that this is done, all that is left is to find myself a guild.
