Ok for a priest other than Human for its every man for himself racial. What other priest are good at PvP? I was thinking Draenei maybe, but is that a total waste or not cause being a priest wouldn't the heal become more powerful as I level? Or is Night Elf a better choice?

I'm not really a pvp mogul, but how about Gnomes? They have an extra CD to get out of roots and go well as spellcasters. Not to mention they look awesomely cute.

I would but Gnome isn't a priest till Cata. Might just have to wait. Was thinking abt it anyways.

NElfs have a racial stealth thats about it but id go with human not only do they have a trinket for racial but they also have stealth detection and a boost in spirit.

For PvP a human is going to be the best bet just because of Every Man For Himself.

Ya... I was afraid this was going to happen. Didn't want to have all 3 of my main playing characters to be human lol or 2 human 1 draenei. Pally, Priest, DK(prob Draenei). But Oh well to be good at pvp gotta have the right stuff.

Dwarves get stone form, and a very slight boost in health. Stoneform is great for bleeds and poisons (aka many melee toons). And the best part, they are currently allowed to be priests.

Eh Dwarves are alright but except from using stone form on melee. There other racials don't really help in pvp as much as stone form does.

If you are going shadow, being Draenei isn't terrible. The 1% hit bonus is nice for that.

Yea good point, probably not good enough for arena or anything for priest play most likely sticking with BG's mostly and raiding.

If you are raiding, then the JC bonus of a Draenei is 'nice to have' but not critical as well.

PvP play really is dominated with human racials.

Humans: EMfH, +10% rep, +mace/sword expertise (big deal for a priest)
Dwarf: Stoneform, bit of health
Gnomes: can't be a priest (yet)
Nelf: Dodge bonus, shadowmeld
Draenei: +1 to hit, JC, shadow resist

Humans do really hold the top spot imo.

Do human priests ever use mace/swords? I know some casters use spell caster daggers and sometimes swords. but is it rly worth it?

My priest has a mace, but swords are excluded.
