Goblin or Undead hunter?

Its time to do a race change and I want to know which race of these two that is best for a pvp hunter.
Undead got WotF which seems very popular amoung pvpers. The shadow resistance seems nice too since hunters are vulnerable to dots, and most dots are shadow damage. Cannibalize seems to fit hunters perfectly too.
Goblins on the other hand have a second disengage which is tempting and an additional ranged damage ability

I'd definitely go with Undead (Female) :P Always liked their animations etc, besides anything you choose is alot...lot better than your current one :D Orcs aren't bad though, passive increase to pet damage, stun duration reduced slightly, AP racial etc.

Goblin. Extra jump is a huge survivability boost.

A hunter has many ways of getting away from a melle(disengage, pet freedom, trap, entrapment) but no "natural" way of getting out of fear.

Your welcome :)

Go undead for WotF and they look better too.

Whichever you prefer, neither racial is gamebreaking. WotF is the only worthwhile UD racial though (IIRC), Cannibalize is broken even easier than bandages and everyone has spell pen so the resistance won't help you in PvP.

Go Undead for one of the sickest, if not THE sickest Racial in the game.

Wotf is SICK and on par if not BETTER than human Racial. people dont give it enough credit AT all.

Don't care about racials, go with what looks the best. Undead female is the best model/animation you can get in the game imo. Feels like you play better when your animations are more convenient to you too.

It is a strong racial, but so are belf silence and warstomp. EMFH is still better than all 3, just for the sheer fact it gives you more damage, which is everything in cata.

i would consider not sitting in a 7 second Fear more dmg aswell ?

when you pop cooldowns and go for the kill. people often counter you with peels. since everyones knows warlock/shaman is 80% of the ladder. then WOTF becomes SICK, imo the Sickest of them all.

Fair point on the SLs' everywhere.

Depends though, it still puts your trinket on CD. WotF fear, have fun sitting in a blind if they're smart enough to abuse the shared CD.

It's a lot shorter though, and you do notice that. Had a few games where I wotf'd a fear and had my trinket ready when I needed it for the next cc.

And of course trinketting something and having WotF up after a while against one the millions of lock teams is awesome.

if you're going to play BM in PVP I'd stay orc.

You don't need will of the forsaken, as BM since you already have a second trinket in BW.
The racial shadow resistance is useless.. everyone has spell pen in pvp.

The goblin... is interesting, but again as BM, you have the shortest possible disengage cd.. so no need for the goblin racial.

As mm.. it's a different matter... and in that case the undead, goblin or blood elf are all good choices.

Orc, one of the biggest problems for hunters is stuns.
the stun reduction racial helps a lot with this problem, and you also get attack power for your burst, which is ace.

if you don't want anything but goblin or undead.
go undead, with so many warlock/shammy teams around, WotF is extremely strong for hunters, as warlock hard counters us, and we don't have a fear breaker^^

if you just wanna be epic, go troll
