  Reveal hidden contents Human is the best PvP racial choice from alliance.
Every Man for Himself - This racial works as a PvP trinket that removes all movement impairing effects and all effects which cause loss of control of your character. Playing as human will allow you to use two PvP dps trinkets instead of using 1 pvp trinket + 1 dps trinket. This is a huge plus to your class. Night Elf: 
Shadowmeld - This spell grants you Invisibility as long as you don't move to cancel the effect. If used with caution you can evade spells that are used against you, not only casted spells, but instant spells too; It's just about timing it. Also, the spell itself will cancel your combat state when used correctly. 
Quickness - Increases your chance to dodge enemy melee/ranged attacks by 2% Orc is the best choice from horde.
Blood Fury - Increases your attack power by 4,514 for 15 seconds. 
Command - Damage dealt by your pets increased by 2%. 
Hardiness - Duration of Stun effects reduced by an additional 15%. 
Will of the Forsaken - Removes any Charm, Fear and Sleep effect. This effect shares a 30 sec cooldown with other similar effects(PvP Trinkets). 
Touch of the Grave - Your attacks and damaging spells have a chance to drain the target, dealing % Shadow damage and healing you for the same amount. '' % '' represents a number. Example: Deals 15000 damage, and it heals you for the same amount.
Dead Eye - Expertise with guns, bows, and crossbows increased by 1%. 
Berserking - Increases ranged haste by 20% for 10 seconds.
