    That s the new troll model
  1. Neonic's Avatar
    they have time and recources to create these new models, yet they still are not able to finish updating the other older races?
  1. TCceen's Avatar
    Wow, loving the troll model! I hope player models are updated like this, accross ALL races. Yes even Blood elves can use it, Alextraza had an updated blood elf model not even ONE expac later! Oh and i HOPE and PRAY they give us new hair styles with this next 5.2 in the same fashion we did with major content in the last 2 expacs. Although I hope they have more effort and design put to them unlike the horrible bald blood elf, braid in front blood elf female and a few more were just so very half-assed. Especially when you see what can be done with the animated styles and variety in the Goblins and Pandas.

    They're changing Blazing Speed to replace Blink (like Rune of Power replaces Evocation). The only thing the talent would do with these changes is make a fast, short sprint of what used to be a teleport. I'd like to keep both Blink and Blazing Speed because I actually use that ability quite a lot. Guess it would be Ice Barrier for me then.
