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.

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.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      FAQ:
      Q1: Why no Skull?
      A1: In the purest form of greedy control, the goal is to answer to everything and set up for the best turn 25+ match up. With so many board wipes, removal and heals, we usually have the time to draw a voidlord or two, cube them, copy the cube, and make a sandwich. 
      Q2: How do you win?
      A2: Fatigue plays a factor, but you'd be surprised how much damage 6 1/3s deal... wait no you wouldn't... its definitely 6.
      Q3: How do you sleep at night you monster?
      A3: I like to drink green tea an hour before bed and listen to piano with rain in the background. Link below.

      Q4: What do you do against Raza Priest or Exodia Mage?
      A4: Accept that combo decks will occasionally go off before I can beat them down. Usually their impatients is their undoing 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 :)
      -> Budget Aggro Priest Deck -> Budget Handbuff Paladin -> Budget Aggro/Tempo Rogue
