Simple question now that NDA is lifted and Beta keys are going out for Wotlk. You may post reasons.
I'm horde and I'd Pick UD for WOTF but orcs are tempting.

"Draw upon unholy energy to become undead for 30 sec. While undead, you are immune to Charm, Fear and Sleep effects, and your horrifying visage causes melee attacks to have an additional 25% chance to miss you."

Orc is tempting... but then deathknights get a trained ability that makes them immune to all stuns for 15s on a 1m cooldown... and the fear ability above.

So basically the anti-CC races aren't neccessarily needed. Human might end up being really good for arena. Gnome for escaping snares (deathknights have no reliable/spammable ones, being slowed will be a constant and probably the biggest problem for DK PVP).

Blood elf for interrupt chains.

They all seem pretty equal.

Although, I wonder if they'll add in any racial spells specific to DKs?

Female nightelfs have really nice 2H animations imo, but male undead look badass when they're whipping around 2H as well. Their animations really look like they're intent on destroying things.

UD for horde, gnome for alliance.

For me it'll probably depend if they are going to change Tauren hitbox, horde side anyways.

I'd imagine when under the effects of the undead skill, they're able to be feared via turn undead. With the new ret and holy changes, there's going to be a lot of paladins around. :)
