- 2.7 Trolls
Berserking - active
Increases your attack speed by 10% to 30%. At full health the speed increase is 10% with a greater effect up to 30% if you are badly hurt when you activate Berserking. Lasts 10 sec. 3 min cooldown Cost 10 Energy
- Berserking has gone through a lot of changes, and to date is the only ability that requires rage/mana/energy. While the cost can be cumbersome, I think most will agree the current form of Berserk is better than its older forms. While its not the most amazing ability for PvP, it does give you awesome potential for Raid DPS. Believe it or not most of our PvE damage comes from auto-attack swings, so a speed boost to that actually does more than youd think. I think its also important to note that it can be combined with Slice and Dice to be a truly lethal ability.
Regeneration - passive
10% health regen bonus, 10% active in combat
- This is one of the better passive traits a Rogue can have since it cuts downtime but more importantly gives added survivability in combat. Troll Rogues are the only race that can gain health in combat without heals/potions.
Formula for the Rogue:
1 spi = .5 hp / 2 seconds out of combat
Formula for the Troll Rogue:
1 spi = .55 hp / 2 seconds out of combat
1 spi = .055 hp / 2 seconds during combat
Beast Slaying - passive
5% damage bonus to Beasts
- Considering that more than 25% of the things you fight in your WoW career will be considered beast this is actually a nice damage bonus. Not very useful for PvP, but can really move you along through PvE grinding nicely.
Throwing Specialization - passive
+5 to Bows and Throwing Weapon skills
- Makes using a Bow or Thrown weapon a bit more reliable, especially nice for pulling or hitting runners. Provides a nice and consistent application to PvP and PvE.
Summary: The Troll race lends itself nicely to PvE with a damage boost to the most frequent mobs. Not to mention having the highest theoretical DPS in end game Raid Instances thanks to Berserking. Add Regeneration and throwing specialization on top of it, and Trolls are arguably the best Grinding/Raid race
