I dunno, something about the Kul Tiras buildings in bright and sunny Stormsong just doesn't work for me. They fit better in the other zones but stick out here.
I think they're more than placeholders, given there's also a Ramkahen tent in the bazaar and it's already decorated with the specific Ramkahen brazier and all. Seems more likely that there's a Tol'vir presence in the dock bazaar as a trader just to give it some more variety.

Then at some point some of them chose to leave and ended up in Tanaris, calling themselves the Sandfury and naming their city after their old tribe. Then since Zul Farrak is "nothing but a wasteland" as of Cata, the Farraki we're seeing from MoP onward are the surviving Sandfury mixed with some of their Vol'dun relatives.
Wouldn't that contradict their previous origins from the Troll Compendium and such, of originally being jungle trolls that got separated from the rest of the Gurubashi Empire in the Sundering?

Chronicle's map of the troll empires even makes sure to have a portion of the Gurubashi territory extend all the way to Zul'Farrak, so it seems to still be intended as their canonical origin.



The map also has that unexplained mention of a Razorbranch tribe, which, judging by Matt Burns' single comment on the matter, seems to be intended as the original name for the Sandfury.

I saw the goblin oil field.

but I did not see the reliquary, pics please

I'm not crazy about the mounts, but there's nothing wrong with them; just don't feel they're worth $20.

Kinda sucks we no longer get flying mounts in collectors' editions.

They're not. And it pains me to say it but neither is the turtleguy pet. For mount collectors it's a spiffy deal though considering how overpriced storemounts are. 2 for 20 is a good deal. The raptor is nice. The horsey.... eeeeeeeh. I'd rather trade both mounts for one really awesome neutral one.

Correct. The idea of allied races is that instead of having starting zones, the story that would be their starting experiences is done by a pre-existing max level character on that faction to unlock them. Ion said on the stream that the idea is to have it really feel like you personally are bringing these races into the Horde and Alliance.

Also he confirmed Draenor Orcs are coming as an allied race.

I was hoping for a few last-minute updates. Very disappointed.

I mean if folks raise enough fuss, they'll just do some more adjustments. Y'all don't remember the initial release of the first batch of player models? There were subsequent revisions.
