Greetings.

Is stoneform really cruical in pvp as a holy paladin ? Does it turn pala gameplay on next level or humans can work around ?
I would really like to know, how does it turn pvp for paladins (is it like having wotf on rogue or just slightly beter compare to human) ?
As it seems, perception is pretty sotuational, especially since paladins do not really have some range engagement except grenades or eng tools.

Thanks!

Some very simple decisionmaking:

1. Can the class be a dwarf?
Yes: Go dwarf
No: Pick a different class. Repeat step 1.

I've seen that tool.

Mostly concearned about ingame situations.
Also seen many good human paladins performing well in pvp as holy.
Question is - is dwarf racial trully gamebreaking or it just makes life easier.

The situation when dwarf racial really matters is againts rogues: you can break out of blind with stoneform.
If you're heavily interested in PvP, I'd chose dwarf.

There is no racial that is game breaking imo. Is dwarf better for pvp? Absolutely. Is it required to perform well? Absolutely not. It defeats one ability from one class. If you want to mold your whole experience around covering one 5 min cd from one class out of the 10 you will be encountering, you can, but just be ready to smash your keyboard when you stoneform out of blind and then get immediately sheeped or feared by the rogues buddy.

Gnomes and Dwarfs seem to be the masterraces of the Alliance.

I feel its more like being immune to poisons for 8 seconds, so immune to all these wound/mind nimbung poisons rogue applies to you 24/7 and hardly being cleansed. Well, maybe here i should open a question why should i try to cast under a rogue >.>

Dwardf Paladins do get a pretty nice advantage in pvp, but it's pretty situational at best, but still shouldn't be overlooked.

For instance, you're in a BG or even engaging in some WPvP with you and say.. a mage or hunter or something. A rogue would be an idiot to open up on a paladin instead of the other person. So, what the rogue should and probably would do is blind the paladin, or otherwise disorient them in some way so they are out of the fight and then delete the other person. However, this tactic won't work because you can stoneform right out of that blind. That's about as situational as it gets.

Correct me if I'm wrong anyone here, but I'm fairly certain that is where it stops and starts.

In this prtcular situation bubble to go.
Stoneform looks like an additional bubble against rogue controlls to save paladin's main ohno ability.

This is correct. Which brings us back to my earlier point, do you want to stare at a dwarf for the entirety of your play time in order to have an additional oh no ability vs one of the ten available classes? I don't, but if you do that's the decision you need to make.

I always advocate picking for looks/animations.

Racials in this game are pretty weak compared to most rpgs or even MMO rpgs. Any time I've ever tried to level a class that had this specific "optimal" race, I was just unable to care about it.
