Thinking of doing a race change. Suggestions?

I'm thinking of race changing my dwarf warrior. Why? I dunno. Just getting tired of looking at his stumpy legs I guess. The dwarf racial stoneform is nice for tanking, but some of the other ones stink (treasure find or whatever it is) kind of stink.

Anyway, I was wondering what you would pick. I'm leaning drainei because of the +hit racial. Also, they're tall and I like big tanks. But I'm open to others. I'm not actually sure what all the various racials are to be honest.

Multiple Choice Poll
Which race?

Human

Gnome

Worgen

Night Elf

Draenie

Panda

Stick with dwarf

If it HAS TO BE alliance and you're a tank, then Night Elf might be more beneficial with the +avoidance. Plus they flip when they jump, MJ dance, samurai bows, etc.

Stick with dwarf. Dwarves are made of 64% win and 36% awesome, which means your tanking will be 100% stupendous. Plus they have beards and like to drink beer = even more awesome win. The fact that I love dwarves has absolutely no bearing on my completely unbiased opinion on this subject.

I actually just changed my male draenei to a dwarf. I just couldn't handle the draenei anymore. So I kinda know that feel.

With MoP almost requiring faction rep grinds I voted human. I just swapped my lock to human from dwarf as well. Though I only rolled dwarf to help with the guild achievement. Plus, if I pvp I can take the proc and on use stat trinkets since I have the get out of jail as a racial.

Looks like humans are running away with it! The escape racial is nice, and the rep racial is REALLY nice. Do they have any weapon bonuses? Like +expertise or something? Maybe with a certain weapon type.

I seem to remember something like that..

If I go human I need a new name though. Stouty doesnt make any sense for a person.

Here's the weapon and related bonuses.

Alliance races:
Human - +3 exp with 1h/2h swords and maces
Gnome - +3 exp with 1h swords and daggers
Dwarf - +3 exp with 1h/2h maces, +1% crit with guns
Draenei - +1% hit in general

Horde races:
Orc - +3 exp with 1h/2h axes
Troll - +1% crit with bows

While I haven't yet voted, I'd say if you are using or can get a sword/mace then human is best, especially considering the +rep racial given the rep requirements lately.

I voted human and panda. The food buff is arguably the best available right now, and you can easily make up that expertise in reforging (and you don't have to try and stick with a sword/mace, you can grab an axe if one comes your way and not worry what it'll do to your stats).

If you have most of your reps out of the way or are into revered where you can take advantage of the +rep from that, I'd say don't worry about the +rep bonus with humans. If not, the +rep could be of benefit but it's one of those benefits that won't last forever (once you max out all the ones you care about it's useless).

Also consider your name like you said. Stouty doesn't work so well for a human for sure, but I could see it on a panda. Consider how much they love their beer too, think of a stout. It fits I think. Just make sure you stay drunk lol.

Butter's from dresden files dates a werewolf and plays wow per the latest book.

It just says Butters leads raids, did it actually say WOW? Although I guess there's no other mmorpg right now that raids that I know of (very ignorant though).

Night elf for the 2% free dodge, although they are kind of dorky looking.

I would go human. Plus expertise is essential for all tanks now. Most tanks have to reforge and gem everything to exp bc they try to hit the 15% cap. Not to mention you would have the most overpowered pvp racial that has ever existed in world of warcraft. That will also save your butt when tanking. A lot of trash and some bosses have fears and stuns that are pretty lethal.
