Rolling a warlock

So I am planning a warlock alt because I want to be an easy to level dps and don’t wanna pay for a mount. My only question is what race I should roll (playing horde).

It’s more of an aesthetic here as I don’t mind to min/max, I am curious which race people find more appealing: orc or undead.

....?

I mean, if you're only asking about aesthetics and it's YOUR character, shouldn't you be the one to decide?

Think of it more like a poll, it’s a coin toss for me right now. Mostly curious what seems to be the general favorite

Can't really tell you what you like looking at best. So here's a couple pictures from google images for you to look at.

Beyond that, can't help you m8.

Completely subjective, but from a class fantasy perspective... I don't associate big burly characters with casters. Seems like the idea of a character that turns to demonic shit is going to be doing it because they lack physical strength. So the idea of an undead warlock seems more appealing than an orc warlock.

I don't know how any of that ties into the game's lore, or if you even care. But if your only decision is aesthetic, the orc looks like a warrior and an undead looks like a warlock.

Well, that's definitely the Undead then.

Undead for aesthetic, but Orc has superior racial IMO.

From a lore perspective I really like orc but outside of T2 undead looks much more like a warlock

Gul'dan is a pretty damn solid case for orc warlock aesthetics.

Just look at the two options available and choose which one you think looks prettiest. If the shapes and colors make you happy, click create. I like the shapes and colors of both pretty equally but I think the early lock sets compliment Orcs really well. I would probably like the shapes and colors of an Orc female best but I would choose that race for hardiness but you already said you have no interest in min/maxing. So look at the two shapes and click the one you like.

Undead female and male has great cast animations as well. Plus you know the whole "opening cinematic undead warlock" thing is just so cool.

Guldan is a thing as well, but personally I think orcs look wonky in cloth gear in their original models & vanilla gear. TBC (tier) armor and upwards looks amazing on Orcs though.

tbh undead probably has that supernatural idiot-strength that you see sometimes.

maybe even stronger than an orc Eek

Undead male for cast animations
Orc male for shoulders

PvE they're pretty even.
PvP Orc is better if you're not using consumables heavily (such as free/living action potion and limited invulnerability potion). PvP Undead is better if you are using the consumes.

Was debating the same question, ended up being orc for two reasons.

1 - it's the original warlock race imho, even though you get the appearance of physical strength - there's always Gul'dan
2 - the 25% chance to resist stun seemed great if I ever decided to PvP

For pure aesthetics Undead seem so much better though, but I'm sticking to the points above..
