Starting to get over the initial shock myself. I think the biggest issue I have right now is the troll's almost naked. I can't take him seriously looking like that. He was pretty cool-looking in his hunter gear before getting this model for 5.1, I hope he changes his wardrobe. If not sooner then at least when the new race models arrive.
The one moment that crystallized it for me was when they showed Vol'jin and Varian face to face, then Vol'jin began to stand up and Varian started looking like a puffed-up child. You forget how truly tall male trolls actually are.
I think Vol'jin is the perfect choice. Smart, sneaky, savage. I've always roleplayed my female trolls having crushes on him.
Many years ago...Six? Eight? I can't remember...If someone told me that in future Horde would have for warchief a guy that dances capoeira and emotes like 'yo mon' I would laugh hard. Now I just facepalm. That troll is great and all but....warchief? Come on now!
That story had the potential of a plot and a cinematic greater than secrets of Ulduar and fall of the Lich King combined. I am not going to whine for lore but ....disappointment all the way.
