    Dark Trolls, are there any in 5.2?

    Think there will be any of the remnants of the dark trolls with the Zandalari in 5.2? I mean clearly they wouldn't be focused on, but it'd be a nice easter egg kinda thing. Maybe it would have something to do with how many of the trolls stand upright since the dark trolls evolved into the night elves and some of them seem to share animations with the night elf models. If any of them weren't killed by the Twilight's Hammer on Mount Hyjal they would be with the Zandalari.

    Dark Trolls on Hyjal were allied with the Night Elves in WC3. They'd probably retcon the magazine so that the Zandalari were the ones to ascend to Night Elves and sweep Dark trolls under the rug unless they come out with some new Dark Troll model that's even more "elven" than the Zandalari one.

    Imo I think all trolls started off as standing upright when they were under the Zandalari but gradually got more primitive/feral as the empire disintegrated and the trolls deviated.

    Not sure about 5.2, but there's Cata concept art of a Dark Troll

    Probably they were planned to be implemented, but seem to have been swept under the carpet.

    They weren't swept under the rug, those trolls got killed by the twilight's hammer offscreen when they took over Mount Hyjal in Cataclysm. Unknown if there were survivors.

    It was swept under the rug. Rather than find some way to put them in game, even if it's in a lore scroll, they killed them off in a non-game publication that isn't even in print any more. And this was after they dropped a bombshell on Night Elf fans by saying trolls were their ancestors.

    Aww come on, since WC3 the similarities between the two races were obvious ,it was clear they were related to each other, one way or another.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    It was hardly a bombshell, it was theorized by a few people before the book in Tanaris even hinted at it back in 2004. The funny thing is the way people act like that speculation wasn't obviously put there for us to read for a reason.
