Human warrior / Orc warrior

Here's the thing: I originally planned to go human warrior in classic: I love alliance, I love warriors, I love humans...makes sense to go alliance right? :sweat_smile:

Now the little issue is that everyone keeps telling me I NEED to be gnome because human is crap in pvp (there's no denying that escape artist is awesome). However, I hate how gnomes look like for warriors, I don't like the idea of doing less dps in pve, and according to beta testers, perception is much better on the beta than on private servers (not sure what you think about that)

The other option would be to go orc warrior to get the stun resist racial which is absolutely busted, and to get windfury which is equally op. Now, the good thing about it is that I ABSOLUTELY love Horde as well, especially for warriors: the lore, the cities, the zones, and so on...

So, essentially, I have absolutely no problem with playing either faction, so this boils down to two questions:

2/Which faction sounds more ideal/gives more potential to warriors in pvp? Horde because of stun resist/windfury totem/shamans, or alliance because of paladins (cleanse, blessing of freedom) and the fact that alliance just have more and better healers in general? Is going human warrior better than orc warrior overall just because of the presence of paladins?

2/ How much fun is windfury in pve/frustrating is it to not have paladins blessings? I'm asking warriors who have been pve-ing a lot: is windfury worth going horde, or do you feel like alliance warriors have a more enjoyable pve time due to generating way less threat overall?

Thanks a lot

ok, maybe it's not that simple but you get the idea 🙂

And also human isn't crap in pvp, + stealth detective and super swords/maces passives

Perception is much better in classic than on private servers, so it's definitely going to have its uses, but weapon skill in pvp has almost 0 impact.

Since when? You will have a free slot of gear as you can get your hit cap with less + hit items

Because weapon skill doesn't impact hit in pvp, it only works for pve

I've just googled for you:
While weapon skill does not affect your chance to hit enemy players in battlegrounds, it still affects your hit chance against enemy players in world PvP or duels. (c) wow head

You are being manipulated, just pick a race you really love.

damn, really, and this applies in vanilla?
Then this changes a lot of things: in bgs you have healers and paladins to freedom and cleanse you anyways.

Thank you

Weapon skill is valuable in PvE because bosses are level 63. Far less valuable / negligible in PvP.
