3. Can the above ^ race/profession be good at PVP?

I've asked a bunch of my friends what race to pick for a mage, and I keep getting different answers. I chose an Undead, because of their spell that cancels sleep, charm, etc, but now my other friend told me I could just use a trinket after level 40 to do the same thing! And then another person told me to pick the berserking race so I can do more damage in one minute...?
