    For a Burning Crusade 10 day trial, you must own a copy of WoW, but in the trial, you can play as a Draenei or Blood Elf
    For a Wrath of the Lych King 10 day trial, you must own WoW and The Burinig Crusade expansions, but in the trial you can play as a Death Knight
    For a Cataclysm 10 day trail, you must own a copy WoW, the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lych King, but in the trial, you can play as a Worgen or Goblin

    So for your trial, you will be restricted to Night Elf, Human, Dwarf, Gnome, Ork, Forsaken, Troll or Tauren.
    Ah - didn't realise this, as I already had WOTLK!

    Warlock is a fun race. It's all about doing lots of slow painful damage to others. Plus you get a awesome pet.

    Race abilities don't change, you get them at level 1 for free and they stay the same forever (or until blizzard nerfs/buffs them!).

    Oh well... Looks like it's Orc for me. Undead look pretty lame.

    Stupid WoW comic making them look awesome...

    Stat wise, Night elf could be a decent rogue too....

    DAMNIT I CAN'T DECIDE!!!!


    X EDIT: Nevermind... Undead do look pretty boss.

    Still can't decide though...

    +rep for that last bit.

    X-13, Night Elves are good, they are the tallest race so look big and bulky with nice gear.

    However, they are Alliance (which for reasons I can't understand, some people don't like and want to play as Horde) - I have a 71 Blood Elf Warlock which I like, but am also levelling a Worgen Hunter. I won my copy of Cataclysm so though "why not" and fell off the wagon. They do look sweet as well.

    Only the starting stats are different, so don't pick a race based on stats (it'll be about 1dps difference at level 85, when you're doing 15k+!)

    The download is a lot better now too, originally you had to download the whole 12GB or so, to start playing, now you need to download about 300MB (maybe a bit more), and it downloads areas as you play! ;-)

    Thank fork for that... I'm fed up of having to download massive installer packages with estimated times of about a week.

    Don't trial accounts only have access to one realm?

    I don't think so? I was able to do the 10 day cata trial on a realm I had existing chars on, might be different for you though...

    Things may have changed, but when you went high end with a lock you switched from DoT's to destro and it was all crit crit crit on your shadowbolt.

    Like i said earlier in the thread, i've not played since WotlK was released when i had a lock kitted with some bits of T6 so things may have changed now but that was how it went.

    Destro locks had much better DPS for raiding (though it could be a bit harder to grind as destro if you didnt get that first crit).

    I'm tempted to roll a rogue or pala. I could be interested in jumping in on that action.
