Battle for Azeroth Allied Races - Zandalari Trolls

The Zandalari Trolls are the original trolls of Azeroth residing on the continent of Zandalar. They have a rich history and a proud heritage. Zandalari society worships Loa, animal gods and protectors. They also have a bond with the many dinosaur species found on the planet. The Horde are seeking to gain the trust of this tall-standing race to counter Alliance aggression.

Embrace of the Loa Shrines
The Zandalari Troll racial ability Embrace of the Loa requires your Zandalari troll to use the ability in front of one of the Zandalari loa shrines around Dazar'alor. This grants you the buff of the loa and will remain until you replace it with another loa shrine. This activates a 5 day cooldown during which you cannot change the buff. You can talk to guards in Dazar'alor to get the specific shrine marked on the map.







Mounts
The Zandalari Troll racial mount is the Zandalari Direhorn. It is usable by all Horde races upon unlocking the Zandalari Troll Allied Race.

    That moment you saw the title and was excited to find out about the classes for Zandalari but there are none of them except for the druids. Paladins plz Blizz.

    If the UC and SW story line are scenario format then thats fine but it will suck if you have to deal with other players. I hope at least we only have to do it with 1 toon.

    Blood elves would be a good fit, they have even had some NPC druids.

    Yeah, it's not like you can confirm Warrior as well since that was, well who knows, the entire introduction video at BlizzCon.

    Shaman is practically a given for them. Trolls have always practiced shamanism in the lore so I will be very surprised if they can't be shaman in BFA.

    They don't look finished.
    I'm pretty sure they will get some more customization options, especially for the faces. At least I hope so, since they all look the same to me.

    This expansion has done it. After years being Alliance I'm returning to Horde which I originally belonged to from vanilla. I have to have a Zandalari Druid cause i never liked the hunched over trolls. And on top of that the Collectors edition mount for horde really craps all over the Alliance horse.

    I'm tired of this abuse on alliance so its time to return to the horde.

    So how about content? because all I see are a handful of new races and some shitty aesthetics.

    Is it just me or do they look like they have the same stand posture as the Nightborne?
    I mean, I understand the whole idea of allied races was lazy, but this would be super special lazy...

    For me a troll paladin makes no sense at all.

    Priest is just fine, but paladin... hell no (even Tauren Paladins make no sense to me).

    Both Nightborne and Zandalari use the Night Elf skeleton, so it makes sense that they would move the same.
