There's a typo in the thread title. My post title fixes it.

Why do you need to shit on things other people enjoy?

If you don't think the trolls are written well then what do you suggest be done differently?

Fojar wants the Conflict in the Warcraft series to be between the Alliance and the Red Alliance, led by Red clothed Varian.

I am curious as to who is on Zula's avatar. I'm guessing one of the chief residents of the Sublime Porte during the imperial days?

You know, even though we kill Trolls at least once an expansion and that kind of sucks for Troll fans, at least it has some upsides. There is such an abundance of Troll gear, if Dwarves had a third of all the Troll gear there is I'd be so happy.

This. We hardly ever see any uniquely Dwarven gear. Or Gnomish gear. Hell, even the Night Elves hardly get anything aside from your typical feathers-and-antlers druid shit.

Oh, I'm sorry, did I forget Draenei and Worgen? My bad... it's not like Blizzard has done a whole lot to remind me they exist.

We;ve had troll raids and dungeons and zones every expansion, and even when they couldn't get one in, they slipped in a patch in cata to rework previous ones, even if they didn't fit at all into the story of cata.

Its no secret that kosak has a boner for trolls, he's the one who put one as warchief in place, bollocks to the other horde races.

Well to be fair, jungle trolls aren't real trolls.

Forgetting for a moment that the constant troll murdering long predates Kosak's arrival at Blizzard, I'd ask that, if you can't contain your irrational hate-on, you take this kind of thread shitting somewhere else.

Might I recommend the faction thread?

I wasn't trying to thread shit, I just wanted to point out that the Trolls do have a lot of nice gear to choose from. :l

My comment wasn't directed at you.

I will concede that Trolls do have a plethora of transmog options, which isn't true for most other races.

Whatever, I reserve the right, both politically and socially, to discriminate against trolls in all troll lovers threads.

There isn't a site online that wouldn't be happy to see trolls gone.

I really hope we get to Zandalar eventually. I think their is huge potential for lore for both the Trolls and potentially the NEs. In the same way as Vykrul gave the humans a chance to explore their early history, Zandalar could offer the same for NEs and even potentially lore on their God Elune if she does turn out to be a Loa.

Shadows of the Horde was probably my favorate WoW book so far. If Blizzard can capture half of Vol'jin's character in that book and the ideological conflict that it sets up within the troll race, the future story of the trolls could be really, really epic.

As for the gear... Its worth pointing out that we probably would need to be killing a lot of dwarves to be getting the same model selection for Transmog that Trolls get.

Yeah, as soon as other races get instances devoted to killing them, it's fair they get themed armor. Although, I guess that's already happening to the orcs.

people complain about orcs how there is to much of them. This is pretty much bullcrap when there has been troll dungeons, raids and even full patches about trolls in every expansion.

Vanilla - ZG and ZF with a full ZG patch.
TBC - ZA a full patch for it
Wrath - ZD with dungeon, a full zone about trolls
Revamping ZA and ZG with a full patch and questline
Mists - Zandalari with isle of thunder content, ending with the horde taken over by a troll.

To much focus on orcs you say? Honestly, I'm fed up with trolls. Give some fucking tauren or worgen lore.

Go and fight the Grimtotem in Mu'garub to prevent Magatha Grimtotem from finishing a ritual that would ensure Grimtotem Tauren supremacy on large parts of central/southern Kalimdor. For the Herd!

I say we need to see more trolls, but more trolls doing things that don't involve being killed en masse. Let the Darkspear interact with their gods and ancestors, let them work to further their own status in the Horde while furthering the Horde,s place in the world. Let them reclaim some of the glory that the trolls have been so unjustly denied for thousands of years.

None of this precludes other races getting their time in the limelight, allied or otherwise.

Suppose at some point, the main story line brings the races of Azeroth to the Naga's (Nagas'?) front door, and the factions find themselves using what's left of Zuldazar and Mugamba as a forward operating base into the Maelstrom. Surely, both factions would want to comb the island to find its ancient secrets. Maybe the Dwarves want to beat the Darkspear to getting the ancient tomes and artifacts, so that they can bring them back to Ironforge, while the Darkspear want to use them to restore and rebuild the trolls.

Or maybe the Darkspear are more concerned with domestic affairs, and collaborate with the Blood Elves once more to craft new magics to solidify their grip on Quel'thalas, as the High Elves had used Amani mojo so many years ago.

Wanting to see more cool troll stuff doesn't mean we can't see the other races of Warcraft doing neat things.
