I was thinking about starting a goblin rogue because of the haste bonus. Is there a better option? troll?

I think overall Pandas are the best, because they have +300 agi if you take the best food available.

Trolls are good with their mini-bloodlust.

Orcs are pretty good too with a decent DPS cooldown in Blood Fury.

Goblins have the 1% static haste.

Blood elves don't really have anything noteworthy.

However, overall the DPS difference will be minor at best. Unless you're really pushing for hardcore raiding progression the race choice won't really affect anything.

For Throne Of Thunder the Troll 5% increase on beasts is very handy.

Horridon

Tortos

Megaera

Ji-Kun

Plus the 3 dogs on Iron Qon.

The only acceptable answer here is Tauren. Desire it so much that you fill all the developers' email inboxes with requests to be a Tauren Rogue. CLOP CLOP STAB has never sounded better.

Don't do a racial for its usefulness in PvE. Pick a character you like seeing a lot. Goblins are fun...Haste, bank, best jokes, and Rocket Jump...but man, don't get anything you like for xmog...it'll be miniature sized. Personally, as an Orc, I'm partial to their massive shoulders. Blood Fury is nice...but don't forget the 15% reduction from stuns as well. Their daggers would also be larger if you're into how you look. Blood Elves, if you PvP, have a usefulness in that they get an extra AoE interrupt with Arcane Torrent. Females also get the best xmogs ever. Trolls look too clumsy to be Rogues, but Berserking is quite nice. Voodoo shuffle also reduces movement impairing effects. The Beast Slaying is nice, but Throne of Thunder won't last forever, and I'm not seeing a lot of Beasts in Siege of Orgrimmar. Undead look awesome, and Touch of the Grave is nice. Cannibilize and Will of the Forsaken are great for PvP, but they have the best laugh and /dance.

I'd go with what you think looks the best, not the minor 1% difference between the 'best' and 'worst.'

Undead Rogues are hilarious. If you ever wanted to be one of those fast zombies and descend on an unsuspecting Gnome to disembowel it, there's your answer.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
