That's funny, but it does make me curious. What is the popular opinion now, how do you think Will of the Forsaken compares with the human racial Every Man for Himself?Will of the Forsaken RacialInstant 2 min cooldownRemoves any Charm, Fear and Sleep effect.Every Man for HimselfInstant 2 min cooldownRemoves all movement impairing effects and all effects which cause loss of control of your character. This effect shares a cooldown with other similar effects.The reason I think the comparison is valid is because humans have a lot more racials than undead, and the biggest racial for undead is WotF.Human Racials: http://www.wowhead.com/?spells=-4&filter=ra=1Undead Racials: http://www.wowhead.com/?spells=-4&filter=ra=5

Human Everyman for himself, share a cooldown with BG tokens, witch made them wirthless to have. I dont think that the case for the will of the forsaken.

@Markainion I would be happy to have a free trinket slot during PvP as one of my racials, frankly. WOTF may not share a cooldown but it's also not as useful as EMFH. I'd also LOVE Diplomacy. Too bad I play Horde. Que sera sera.

I'd take WotF over EMFH any day of the week. A quick wowhead search reveals that the freedom trinkets are the only trinkets in the game that carry resil in any sizable quantity. If you're thinking that you're going to replace ur trinket because you have EMFH then you're losing 84 resil off the level 80 trinket. I, personally, equip the trinket just for the resil it gives.Now if you're undead you have to equip the trinket (unless you eenjoy getting wtfpwned) and then you have another specialized trinket at your disposal.The only way EMFH would be viable is if there was a trinket with 84 resil and then some sort of offensive stat, but at this point I just can't give up the resil to equip anything else.

WotF is nerfed... it's a FACT, there's no contending that. But the article is about the ludicrousness of leaving the game for that nerf alone when there's so many other nerfs and balancing issues abound everywhere. Actually, regarding Forsaken racials... I was more pissed about the recent water breathing change. Any char I made that didn't have a way to breathe underwater, I picked Forsaken. Now that everyone can breath underwater for so long I'm pissed because I could have picked another race for other racials that are now a lot more useful than Forsaken.

@lars - I can't tell if you're kidding. You seriously pick a race based on the length of time that class can breathe underwater??? Seriously?? Of all the racials - that's the one that's important to you? Over, for instance, how much dps it does, how much damage it can avoid, if it can get out of stuns, the weapon expertise bonus suiting the class, etc? I guarantee, you spend far less time underwater than stunned.. Unless you're doing something horribly wrong.Just.. wow.
