    I don't know why but Vol'jin makes me think of an owlkin...not a bad model overall though.

    only monk changes? cmon, when are they going to activate the lock questline? I couldn't care less about voljin

    I like the detail and such on Vol'jin, except the ears. Just looks like his head is about to pop off and fly away as a bat. They could do with altering his wing-like ears. Make them less wide, or curl the ear tips forward more like in the loading screen.

    What is Blizzard trying to do with Brewmasters.......

    Why? Why do they keep hitting my favorite sexy troll with the ugly bat? Whhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyy. /cry He's developing the same too-small head that Garrosh's model was given and oh geez what did they do to his ears! I can see his teeth (barely) but where is the rest of his mouth? I'm happy to see the return of troll-themed armor, but what is that thing on his back?

    I should have seen this coming, considering how closely this appearance matches with the art for Vol'jin from the Battlecry wallpaper in 2010. I think I need a hug.

    Edit: No, I don't look at loading screens. :/ I tab out to my internet browser while I wait. Maybe I should try to break myself of the habit...

    I don't mind the new Vol'Jin model, though I liked the old one. I want to see him to a /roar emote, cause those tusks make his his mouth look so damn small.

    So no gems for tanks even though there will be tank shield..

    Vol'jin looks like an old human witch woman in the face...Run Hans and Greta, RUN!!! Wicked witch is gonna getcha!

    Why? The normal troll model is still made up of 10 polygons and 3 pixels.

    Vol'jin for Warchief!

    I like the new model.

    Aside from the bat ears, Vol'jin's new look is pretty awesome.

    The Resistance against Garrosh and the subsequent Horde Revolution has its first seeds planted in Patch 5.1. FOR THE HORDE!!!

    So they did buff Vol´jin up...
    I really hope they don´t do that with the new troll player models, i don´t want to play a muscle troll.

    Brewmasters are really in need of some love... Not a nerf! Think it might be time to roll another tank class tbh

    What's up with those ears? And that thing on his back looks like a sackpipe (or what it's called).
    Other than that, nice look!

    About those gems, are they only usable in the Sha touched weapons? or in any gem slot?

    It's still very slim, I think it needed to be buffed a little.
    The model I like, but I think they should work on the skin resolution more. (btw trolls don't have blue skin, they have moss like fur).
