Or this some insane kind of proof night elves descend from Trolls.
I don't like it. They don't look enough like Trolls - the faces, the perfect posture, even the tusks - they look like a totally new race. And what's up with the glowing eyes?
I understand Blizzard want them to look more 'advanced' and powerful, to make them distinct from other trolls but they've gone too far.

I like them a lot, and feel that they dó look a lot like trolls. Or at least, a lot like powerful trolls. Don't get me wrong; I love the trolls... I just think their models are fugly.
So I'd say: Make the Darkspear more like these! Well; maybe a little lighter on the tusks...
Can't wait to see the females! While the Darkspear female model is better than the male, it would be nice to add a bit of... You know... Power to their model.
now it's time to update player models
I am guessing this is what occurs when Trolls are exposed to a very high level of arcane magic; slightly forced evolution like what occurred to create Night Elves.
In this instance, the Mogu are pumping them full of power and possibly even using their flesh shaping rituals on them.
hope this and the other newer troll models are used as a basis for the eventual Jungle Troll revamp.
i like that they look different from most trolls, the Zandalari have always been spoken about in WoW as if they ARE intrinsically different.
the are the ultimate ancestors of all troll and elf tribes so it's nice to see that reflected.
I would play trolls if they looked like this...too bad theyre lengthy hunchbacks who look horrible in any gear set.
I'd rather they just make Trolls Trolls and not homogenize things.
I like it. They look like meatier versions of Blood Elves (standing pose - has a slight lean)
With that in mind, I guess I was sold on Tolkien's version of trolls which were more akin to the dire trolls so it's nice to see these new guys are not scrawny hunchbacks.
They do, however, look more graceful than what I'd expect from a troll when they walk. Their run is perfect.
I'd be very excited to get this as a new player model.
They look fine to me... the only thing I hope they have (that I didn't see in this video, at least) is a set of troll hairstyles/colors... they lose a certain "troll vibe" with just the brown ponytails and short mohawk shown here.
