well panda's racials are quite OP and mana doesn't really matters anymore due the fact you or regen it mega quick and/or use the mana regen ability quite a lot so i'd presonally think panda over gnome.

Might also consider weapon choice depending on race. Thanks to dagger spec racial you can get more than just a little extra mana.

That is gnome, right? I pretty much just play horde now.

I love being able to shoot way over the hit cap with expertise. That means the rating can be used in other places to maximize say... crit or haste!

well y haha, it's true but i noticed that the food bonus you get from panda is quite stronger then the 1% hit due you not only get more sp you also get more crit and not sure how much crit points you need and not sure how much % crit per int you get at lvl but it seems that the food buff have 2advantages over 1 in my opinion

1% hit = 340 hit points. If you are using good int food you get +300 int. Clearly the +300 int > 340 hit so yes, panda is a better option than gnome that for. The only thing gnome has is the extra mana, however, mana doesn't appear to be much of an issue for mages in MoP (especially not max. mana pool).

A wand is the current BiS weapon and I would never count on the expertise bonus of races due to the BiS weapon always changing and rarely being what you want it to be for your race.

So Panda (for now) if you are trying to maximize.

My personal suggestion however is to play the race you like the looks of. The racial benefits are very minor in the scheme of things and you have to look at your character 100% of the time. So simply play what you like. Posted Image

      About Us: <Over Raided> is a semi-hardcore raiding guild on US-Stormrage that was officially created in Mists of Pandaria. Our goal has always been to find the fine line between hardcore raiding and still having fun and enjoying each other’s company. We take our raids seriously and do not waste time, but that doesn’t stop us from joking around with one another during raid. We have a very friendly (note: we are not exactly family-friendly) atmosphere that has kept people around. One thing we are proud of as a guild is that we have a very low turnover rate and many loyal members who have stuck with us from the beginning. We are currently looking for people with similar goals who can attend raids consistently and who can meet the expectations required of mythic raiders.
      Expectations:
      Meet the attendance requirement Know your class - this means being able to play more than one spec at a mythic level Be able to communicate reliably and consistently when needed Have a stable internet connection Be willing to check forums once every few days Be prepared with raiding supplies - the guild bank supplies these but isn't meant to be relied upon Actually WANT to raid. If you're not having fun, don't bring other people down and just take a break Progression: 13/13M HFC, 7/7M EN, 1/3M TOV, 5/10H Nighthold
      Raid Schedule – Eastern Time (EST)
      Tuesday 7:30-10:30PM
      Wednesday 7:30-10:30PM
      Thursday 7:30-10:30PM
      Attendance Policy: Raiders must maintain 90% attendance at all times. Consistency in the raid roster is one of most important things in a mythic raiding guild. If you cannot commit to this attendance requirement, we are not the guild for you.
      How to apply: Go to our website at http://over-raided.enjin.com and review our guild policies on the top menu. After that, simply submit a private application form, which can also be found at the top menu. 
      Loot System: We use the EPGP Lootmaster addon to distribute loot. 
      Voice: Mumble
      Currently recruiting: Mage Warlock Elemental Shaman Enhance Shaman Holy Paladin Mistweaver Monk Shadow Priest   If your class isn't listed here but you're still interested, feel free to apply, or contact one of us.    Contact Information: GM: Adorele (Squee#1987) Raid Leader: Rukoshi (Rukoshi#1218) Officer:  Unsafe (Jish#1863)

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello everyone! Feel free to check out our website or send me a PM if there's anything i've missed, thank you.
      Website will be linked at the end of this post and ^ up there where it says website, clicky on it! That is where we handle our applications.
      About Us:
      Almost Heroes is a new international Alliance semi-hardcore raiding guild seated on EU-Silvermoon. We're looking to expand our current roster of very experienced and adept players.
      We are a group of friends starting anew come Legion. All of us have been raiding since the TBC-WotLK era at a high/very high level and therefore wanted to create something for ourselves. Almost everyone currently in the team knows each other in some way, shape, or form. Most of us are additionally very good friends, which in turn creates a healthy and friendly atmosphere.
      Regardless of our relations to each other, we still have a very competitive mindset when it comes to clearing current content. Our current plan is to clear the heroic bosses fairly quick, so that we can start Mythic progress as soon as possible.
      With all of that in mind, we aim to create a friendly and long-lasting home for anyone that wants to be a part of it, a steady raiding schedule and lots of progressing.
      Recruitment:
      We're recruiting ALL classes at this moment, especially healers.
      Healers>Ranged>Tank>Melee.
      Specifically looking for Resto Druid and Shaman, Holy Paladin and a MM/BM Hunter.
      Schedule:
      Wednesday 20:00-23:00
      Friday 20:00-23:00
      Sunday 20:00-23:00
      General info:
      We are using Discord as our way of communicating.
      We're also using a Loot Council to gear our members.
      Raid Invites go out @19:30-19:45.
      ??tba??
      What you can expect as a Trial:
      Our Trial period usually lasts around 2-3 weeks. General feedback on how you're doing. Sometimes you might get rotated out in favor of another Tank/DPS/Healer for a very specific encounter (Most likely wont be happening). A very friendly and social community. Experienced Officers to give you any help you'd like.
      What we expect from you:
      In-depth knowledge of your class, and raid encounter tactics. Come prepared to raids, Flasks, Pots etc.. but also AddOns. No slacking and/or AFKing during raids. A good mindset, wanting to improve and not be afraid to share suggestions. !Do not be afraid to ask questions! Friendly and mature, we like to joke around a lot tho.
      Also you can always whisper one of the Officers in-game or send me a PM here or on our forums, or just reply to this thread if you have any questions or the like. It is in our best interest to help you! If none of us are online, just whisper anyone currently online and he/she may be able to point you our way.
      Veliqueww-Silvermoon or Trixarnqt-Silvermoon

      Sembrah-Silvermoon

      WHO WE ARE
      We’ve been many things over the years.  A small, quiet guild that was focused on progressing through ICC and then H ICC; a much larger guild running 25m ToT; a guild of renowned trolls that caused trouble in all forums and channels of chat nightly.  The guild that blew up the forums and caused an immediate Blizzard reaction to modify the Swapblaster (we actually spent an entire evening keeping people locked inside the Stormwind Trade District bank until the powers that be stepped in.)
      We’ve watched players and guilds come and go, servers boom and bust, and through it all we’ve maintained a solid group of friends who like to raid (and depending on the patch, RBG) together while maintaining a cynical sense of humor.  With the coming of Legion, we’re definitely looking for a few more dedicated people who like to have fun, but take raiding seriously and like the feeling of progressing with a group of friends.  Ideally, we’d like to have a core of about 20 so that we can push straight from heroics into mythics.
      <F I L T H> isn’t for everyone, but we take care of our own, and those who like us, really like us.

      WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
      We are currently looking for competent raiders to fill our roster. We are currently preparing for Normal & Heroic Nighthold progression, and we are ready to go in when the raid opens on January 17th. When we say "competent raider", we mean we want people who can pull sufficient numbers (DPS, HPS) while performing the required mechanics that a fight demands. Basically, we want people who can pull their own weight and not require to be carried. We don't expect perfection. We don't expect anywhere near perfection. We are not perfect, and neither are our raiders. We make mistakes, we wipe, we learn as a team and we grow as a team. If that's something that you want to be a part of, then we welcome your application. If you're gonna be an asshole when the going gets tough, then this is not the guild for you, and we advise that you apply elsewhere.
      To help quantify what kind of people we're looking for and to help give you a better idea of if you're able join our team, 
      we are currently looking for people at roughly 870 Item Level minimum. DPS Requirements are at about 300k sustained single-target.

      OUR PROGRESSION THIS EXPANSION
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7 N | 7/7 H | 0/7 M
      Trial of Valor: 3/3 N | 2/3 H | 0/3 M
      The Nighthold: 0/10 N | 0/10 H | 0/10 M
