Warlock Race

So, i've been rocking this thought of Race changing my Undead Warlock. I really do feel like Undead is the Race to be for a Warlock, but lets face it, their Racial is a Joke in PvE. I dont play pvp EVER, so i dont care about Will of the Forsaken.

 

So now that i've built up some momentum of how i feel about my Race as is, the question is probably obvious by now, Orc or Troll?

 

These days i play GoSac Destro for the MOST part in SoO, but i play all the specs really. Just thought i would mention that since Orc has bonus towards a pet.

 

So the SimCraft "whore" that i am, i did some Simulations in my gear and it seems that Troll on paper is the best choice. Any opinon's on the matter? Or better yet, anyone with experience with both Races?

as an undead warlock with top 5 parses (and some rank 1s) in a guild where our other locks paid for race changes, FUCK TROLLS AND ORCS. undead 4 life.

 

seriously though, if that tiny DPS gain is worth $15 or whatever it is and it really bothers you that much that you're missing out on it, then go for the race change. but just know that even for great players, there are a lot of tiny things you can always improve to get more DPS besides a race change.

I feel ya fellow Undead! Not gonna lie, it's tempting to stay Undead, but dayum, im a bit of a DPS whore aswell xD

 

EDIT: Saw you edited your's, So figured i'd do the same. It's not just about the Race Change, it's also about getting feedback on how much of a difference there really is in Comparison. If it's not substantial enough, im sure as hell not spending money on it.

there's a tiny difference of DPS between racials. that difference could come from a million other things like RPPM trinkets proccing at the right/wrong time, being targeted by a random boss mechanic, getting a string of lucky set bonus procs, just getting a few more crits than average, etc etc. all those things are completely outside your control but they have a bigger impact than the racials. it just isn't worth it unless you're in a world first guild, and if you were in a world first guild then your DPS would fluctuate wildly with the randomness of gear drops in the 2-3 weeks you have to clear everything.

Those numbers are relatively skewed. Problem with Simcraft is it doesn't make human decisions about snapshotting and lining up stuff.

That is 100% bullshit. Worgen 1% crit is way,way, way lower value then troll 20% snap shot haste. 

 

Do not EVER trust SimC for something like this.

To be fair, that chart does show Troll 5000 DPS over 2nd place and 7000 over the highest Alliance race.  5000 and 7000 are pretty significant for just what your character looks like.  I'm not sure Troll is being considered with Beastslaying...methinks Troll is worth 10k DPS on almost every fight and an additional 5% (10-15k) on beasts.

Troll makes affliction opening BEAST.

 

Dark Soul + Tempus Repit + BL + Racial -> OP as fuck.

 

For Destro is useful for soak more Chaos Bolts into procs and more immolate and RoF ticks.

Blizz gets $50 from me every tier.  $25 to go Troll during progression, $25 to go back Orc on farm.

One question about Goblins. Is their hit box smaller than the other classes? Do you have a split second more leeway to getting out of fire?

Another thing to consider for Goblins is that they have a get out of jail free card of standing in bad stuff. Rocket Boots!

Different races do not have different hit boxes.

 

If whatever you have to get out of is so big that you would need Rocket Boots over a simple side step (that takes significantly less time), you can be using Burning Rush, Demonic Circle, or Demonic Gateway for them. And, of course, engineers can pop Nitro Boost.

He didn't even say what spec that was...for all you know that was destruction and 1% crit is sexy as fuck.

 

Destruction BiS races:

 

Troll - 427966

Orc - 421413

Worgen - 420670

Goblin - 420174

Undead - 418167

 

Troll is 2.34% ahead of undead for DESTRUCTION.

 

For demo troll isn't even that much better than orc now. For affliction you can probably argue troll as vastly superior, but outside of that, meh.

 

Side note, if I had the money to spend I'd switch to undead right now because yolocastanimationdpsgain AESTHETICS MEAN THE WORLD BRAH.

After Thok goes down, I might go female Goblin.  Nothing makes me happier than hearing "EXPLOSY TIME!" while playing Destruction.  I might macro /charge with Chaos Bolt just to hear her do her Goblin grunt or yell "EXPLOSY TIME" with each CB.

Troll is a DPS gain, but it will never tear me away from the Blood Elf Master Race when it comes to 'locks.

 

Love the hell out of my Troll Druid and Shaman though.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      Guide:
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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 or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Ok guys, since we 're getting new races, here's a few questions:
      1. Since we're getting the Zandalari as a playable allied race, does it mean we'll get the Mogu as well? Since they were old allies of the Zandalari and they fought the minions for the Old Gods (they were basically created for that), do you think it's plausible? Not to mention a long questline where we get to know them better, and we might even see Ra-Den again.
      2. Since they said that the requirement for the quest to recruit the new races is finishing the legion questlines, does that mean that I have to get to exalted on my Orc hunter (my main is a Draenei shammy) with the Nightborne and the Highmountain Tauren, even though I'm exalted with both of them on my main?

      Hi I'm looking for an active raid guild. I am not a hardcore raider but would like to continue with normal/ heroic progression. 
      I'm looking for raid time around 6pm PST / 9pm EST start. Will consider faction change for the right fit. 

      9/9 Normal 9/9 Heroic - Multiple kills

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.
