The Zandalari are boarder line making me want to switch my main to a Zandalari Druid.
Trolls are one of my favourite races in WoW, and I look very much forward to playing a Zandalari dinomancer (druid or hunter, I haven't decided yet) in BfA!What I love about Darkspear characters is how easy it is to 'roleplay' silly stories with other troll players... The best one I remember was in the ancient days of Mists of Pandaria (I'm not an old-time player ^^), when a high-level gnome tried to make low-level players attack him in the Barrens. I sat in front of him and started /eating... another troll joined me, and we started discussing the respective merits of fried gnome versus boiled gnome. Two other players joined, and we created our own Troll cooking club, while the poor gnome was /taunting everyone around him and occasionnaly killing a few guards... A high level orc arrived, tried to kill the gnome, and miserably failed. So we added sautéed orc and marinated orc to the list of possible dishes...
I was never a fan of the troll race - they never really clicked with me, until I started playing the quests with Vol'jin in Townlong Steppes in Mists of Pandaria. Suddenly he became my favourite horde leader of all of the expansions. So sad to see him die.
Oh geez. This one is easy. Fave troll-related WoW memory was getting the Halberd of Smiting from the original ZG. I was so stoked. The coolest weapon in the game at the time (IMO) and a badass proc to boot. Weapon design has obviously advanced significantly since then, but I still have and will never get rid of that polearm. :D
My favorite troll memory has to be the original 10 man Zul'Aman. Karazhan was my first taste of raiding, and I remember our Kara geared guild group being so surprised at how much more difficult ZA was, even though it was 'technically' in the same gear bracket. We were soooo close to completing our first bear run when our guild imploded, as guilds tend to do.Still, good times.I still remember the Halazzi brief. "This is Halazzi. He dual wields mack trucks."
My favorite troll related memory happened during wrath, I started playing on that expansion and for months had started collecting mounts with my brother, one day we saw the fabled tiger mount and wanted to have it so we went and tried to farm zul'gurub, I must note that we were quite noobs back then. We quickly found out that we couldn't kill the tiger boss easily nor trample him so we developed a strategy to him, by having me "tanking" it as much as i could and then he as a hunter would feign death keep aggro on the pet, use the gnomish knife to resurrect me and keep on with the fight. Never got the mount though, but it was so much fun when you don't quite know what you are doing and find interesting ways to overcome hurdles that for many may seem so feeble.
My fondest Troll memory is when Vol'jin became Warchief. I always liked him. When that happened I reincarnated (Race Change) my Undead Warrior into a Troll.
i really enjoy all the troll dialog
I didn't start playing the game until Wrath, but when I did, I jumped in with both feet and did EVERYTHING. That, of course, meant I had to spend hour grinding Zandalari rep for no particular reason. I mean, just one achievement. But I spend so many hours running old ZG on multiple toons and scouring the action house for Bijous. I never got the mounts, but dang do I have memories of long summer nights diving into every nook and cranny of the jungle.
I'm excited to see us be able to get more story and lore behind the Trolls, as well as see Vol'jin again. :)
Trolls were always my favourite race to play because of their lore, aesthetics and general badassery. I was waiting for Zandalar to be added to the game for so long, but all this troll content we are getting in BfA is way beyond my expectations. I'm gonna be living there. Can't wait for more troll transmog though! Taz'dingo
I actually hold Trolls quite close to my heart, since back when I started playing my first ever character was a Troll Warrior. I leveled him all the way to 40, got him a raptor mount (which was actually expensive for my noobie self, back then) and... deleted him for an Orc Warlock. I'm an idiot! :(
Definitely looking forward to seeing some trolls that will actually succeed because they're not bad guys this time (sorry Darkspears, but you haven't done anything since taking back your little islands).
For me the best memory I have with the trolls is going out to the Isle of Giants and farming the Zandalari Trolls there for the pets. I also enjoyed the old Zul'Farak quest line to kill the trolls in the Hinterlands to get the mallet to summon Gahzrilla. It was just me and my brother, good times. Wish we still could play together, but he went and joined the light.
Im excited to try all the new races especially the trolls! They have a unique storyline and cool druid forms... Im so excited to experience it all. I did get the bear back in the day, I remember playing ZG back when it was a raid, ZA too... I miss it being a raid.. I hated the instances I always seemed to have horrible groups.
My favorite memory of trolls is back in WotLK Gun'drak. I mean really, that's the time I got into the game, and the whole "campaign" against the scourge trolls (talking mostly lower Gun'drak), was awesome. I liked the whole collect mojo -> become troll -> meet the Lich King etc. things in the story. As for Zul'Gurub, I only got in there once before it was scrapped. I remember having a lot of fun, and I think it was one of my first experiences of WoW raiding, even though it was low lvl content. And I got the Amani bear at the end of Cata.
My best troll memory (that sounds really bad :D) is back in the end of Cata, when I just started the game. I was leveling up through Kalimdor and I finally got myself to Un'Goro. While traveling through the zone I met troll sitting on raptor with big ! over head. As I already had become achievement hunter at that point, I obviously accepted this quest not knowing, what lies ahead. As noobish as I were at that time, I was coming back to Un'Goro and Tanaris to complete feeding of that little guy that started following me. Even when I was leveling in Outlands. Almost all pocket money I got from my friends was wasted on AH on materials required to finish this chain quest. Because of that I didn't have gold to get myself Azeroth flying when 60 hit. And around that time I decided to do Explorer. Oh boy, exploring Darnassus on level 6x with no flying was a little bit masochistic ;)My 2nd best memory would be probably farming Zul'Gurub. It was still in the Cata, I think near the end, like 3 last months. I grouped up with some random guy on my server to do mount runs (raptor + panther). At that point it wasn't soloable for us. Anyway we tried to do daily runs. It took almost 2 months of no drops. But when luck finally got on our side, we dropped both mounts during 1 week. With release of MoP guy changed main to his Ally toon and our acquaintance died with time.
