Okay,

So I have leveled UD mages a lot from classic to Wrath and currently on some pservers. I've never tried a troll and wondering what you guys think of them for strictly PvP? I know WoTF is incredible, but I've seen a few vids of a troll mage, but wondering what your opinions on them are. I'm not interested in raiding as I will have zero time for that. So basically looking to gear up via pvp and whatever dungeons i need for that end. Thanks again.

If you're only looking at racial benefits and not looks then there's really nothing to sell IMO. Regeneration is really a joke and berserking is just ok. The benefit of having WoTF outweighs it from a PvP standpoint.

One thing you can check out is the race comparison tool here on this forum.

There's no real reason to pick troll over UD in PvP situations. Berserking offers such a marginal benefit that it's not worth it at all over WotF.

Yeah sorry, let me clarify. I personally really like the way male trolls look, but you are right about WoTF being best, I guess. Hmm, I wonder if Berserking will stack with MQG. Might make for some fun times in a BG just pew pew 1s fireballs.

If you are asking our opinion on the value of racials, Undeads outvalue Trolls for PvP. There is no strong argument to be made for troll unless you are doing PvE, which you said you are not. Aesthetics are subjective and YOU will be starring at your character for hundreds of hours. If you prefer to stare at a troll and it will enhance your personal experience, you don't need to justify your choice, just be a troll.

Haste racial means you can cast Pyroblast faster. Consider yourself sold lol

You'll be regenerating 5 hp per second in combat and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Greatwizard shows off a bit of troll pvp in his latest video:


In the first clip he just pops haste + berserk and goes ham with scorch.
