    Past time to give the Troll race a rest?

    Are Trolls the most over-exposed nonhuman race in WoW? How many zones/settlements/dungeons and how much lore content has Blizzard given them over the years as compared to neglected races like the Gnomes and Tauren? Discuss.

    I'd like to see a subset branch of Tauren that are evil and try to take over the world. A big bad smart ass tauren would be such a cool character.

    i'm imagining like a tony stark tauren.

    Considering their empires were not entirely destroyed during the sundering,unlike the night elven empire and that the trolls predate the Titan arrival is a good reason to give them a lot of lore.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    I think there is already a group that somewhat fits that..............

    They're called Grimtotem, and I'm still hanging on for the day when Blizz finally lets me punch Magatha's teeth down her freakin' throat.
    When asked about the role of women in video games, Samus Aran said, "..." - and then she blew up the planet. AGAIN.

    I dont think that is a really bad thing.
    Cant very well have each zone/storyline always having completely new species/races. Its good to have some repitition and continuity

    Grimtotem are a single, and a probably small(in comparison to Bloodhoof) tribe. Not much for them to accomplish.

    They make for good targets to kill since WC2. It was my favorite unit to trample, truth be told. But after 18 years of being cannon fodder, yes, it is time to give them a rest. They all seem equal, so I don't see the point of creating more "lore" for them. We have a good enough variety of colors to kill already.

    Troll race best race

    Okay, I am in favour of less troll zones and less troll dungeons, though, since we get a lot of those every expansion and they are pretty overdone.

    However, there should be more troll lore and storyline development, at least for the Darkspear. Although in general I'm in favour of all the playable races having more of that.

    yet they did almost accomplish something very great. And Magtha proved herself to be very cunning and manipulative, much to Cairne's chargein

    trolls are also the oldest [humanoid] race on azeroth, that is why they are everywhere to be found, they have spread to all corners of the planet since they first evolved.

    I think we need to leave trolls for an expansion or two, which is why I'm hoping we don't get a south seas expansion next.

    I'm totally over with Trolls being the constant enemy alley (or in some way doing something evil). I've always been a fan of the Darkspear trolls but i'm soooooo sick of the rest.

    It makes no sense for her to not be in Siege of Orgrimmar. Unless they have bigger things planned for her. They really shouldn't have bigger things planned for her.

    Maybe Mekgineer Thermaplugg can leave Gnomeregan with thousands of leper gnomes and arachnotanks, attack Ironforge, and then split his armies: half go north to take Undercity and half go south to take Stormwind. So everybody got to kick leper gnomes.

    In what way does Magatha belong in SoO?

    I quite like troll lore to be honest, i certainly prefer it over tauren and gnome lore (especially gnome lore, i prefer to ignore gnomes) only other lore i'd prefer is worgen lore.

    You would think after all the times we've raided trolls they would have been mostly wiped out by now. Tired of killing trolls all the time.

    I love Troll lore, though I was really looking forward back in classic to seeing the friendly Zandalari empire at their peak. Guess that won't happen.
