My best memory of zul gurub back in the days was when the zulian tiger dropped and the whole raid was eagerly waited to be rolled. Our beloved gm/r.leader handed out the loot and after we all see "<her name> has received loot Swift zulian tiger". The best reaction was from a guildie who broke the general silence with a calm "did she just ninjaed the mount?". the guild disband in less than an hour. Its my favorite time and one of my funniest only because i solo farmed that mount in the next expansions and took it. till the day i got that mount lets say my thoughts for her were,the least,toxic :P
Zandalari are cool and all, but they're too civilized for my liking. I've always preferred the tribal, savage trolls as they were in Vanilla. This is why Stranglethorn Vale was one of my favourite zones - you have the Skullspltter tribe and the Bloodscalp tribe lurking around the jungle and the ancient ruins, and what was at the time the mysterious gates of Zul'gurub right there too. I loved that aesthetic and that atmosphere.I'm looking forward to the Blood Trolls in BFA, hoping they can scratch my savage itch.
My favourite troll memory in game happened back during Wrath of the Lich King. It was just an ordinary day and I was leveling a brand new alt ( a troll as it happens) and when I got to Orgrimmar I saw, for the first time, the most amazing thing. It was raining trolls. But not JUST trolls, but nude trolls, and DEAD nude trolls at that.Seeing that everyone had gathered on top of the bank I figured there must be another layer to this story. Sure enough when I got there and saw the "plague" of trolls raining down on my beloved capital city, I noticed that they spelled a website, "susan express" or some such thing I believe it was. I LITERALLY fell off my chair laughing my butt off at the stupidity and lengths these gold farmers and sellers would go, in order to advertise their product. Priceless memory.
One of my favourite troll memories is the first time I saw the Zul'Aman cinematic trailer with Zul'Jin as a narrator when I started playing in TBC. It had such a powerful atmosphere and really made you feel unsure of your ability to take on such an awe inducing force like the Amani army. But the moment that really hit the high point was the little scene in which Zul'Jin is tortured by the high elves. Maaan, the terror and brutality that came off in such a short scene followed by Zul'Jin's painful escape by cutting his own arm really struck me at the time. I still watch that cinematic from time to time and still feel the same after all these years. "We never forget. We never die."
I remember having the raptor drop while farming with a friend in Zul'Gurub. I ended up dying and by habit I released...but it wouldnt let me back into the raid, and of course, the mount dropped. I couldn't roll on it :( Still had a lot of frustrating fun in there farming tho
The first character I rolled was a Troll Hunter called Rohnitalo (I swear it was randomly generated) on Stormrage-US. I spent Months leveling that guy and Months after that saving gold for my epic mount. I ran MC with my Guild Adversaries of Azeroth and we eventually got to Ragnaros. We were weeks trying to kill him and on our closest attempt most of the raid had died except a tank, healer and myself.The tank was a beast, the Heals was pretty much out of mana and had to focus the tank. The healer eventually dies, the tank has the full dark iron set and lasts maybe another 10-15 seconds and eventually falls. So it's now me and my pet. My pet was the Wolf from Feralas called Snarler, He was a little special in that he retained all his resists when tamed and it was like 100 to all. I was spamming Mend pet and taunted rags with a distracting shot and popped deterrence, once deterrence faded i cast FD and let the pet tank again and wailed on the boss for maybe another10 seconds, at this point he was at 1% and pet goes down and i'm like ohh shap, I hit everything i could and somehow managed to survive (thanks to my FR gear) and managed to kill the boss. Used my trusty Goblin Jumper Cables, rezzed a priest and she proceeded to rezz the rest. Good times were had by all.Ohh and this silly emote was banginghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP2iypbkk9A
My favorite memory would be all the Drakuru questing back in Wrath. There weren't that many quests, but the ending with the Lich King was a really great way to end his story line. Also the LK spares you because he found your antics amusing. I loved that.
Ahhhh my troll was my Horde main from BC all the way through til Pandaria. I remember seeing some very green troll NPCs and being very disappointed you couldn't be quite that green in-game as a player, but it did inspire me to make her a Revantusk troll in-character. I was only a couple weeks short of scrounging up enough gold to buy the Amani warbear, too! :(One of my favourite troll memories though was going through Zul'drak! I loved learning about all their loa spirits, especially Harkoa, and it inspired me to roll up a troll druid. And now finally in Legion she can actually have a snow leopard form with the white Balance of Power feral skin!With the Zandalari, I'm pretty stoked for all their unique druid forms! They've set such a high standard with them I wonder if the other races will ever get new ones to catch up :P
My first troll memory was back in BC when Zul'aman came out. Was super excited by the cinematic they had for it. Course I had just started wow in BC so I was super new to the game. Got through the raid, but never got my bear. Looking forward to the new lore for trolls. I've heard they have some great story and I'm trying to not spoil it for myself.
i hope they have a scenario where we relive the sundering favorite memory still has to be wc3 troll extra campaign that me 30hrs to complete and learning the troll lore lil by lil
What i remember about the raid is how mad my guild got at my friend. But we did get the old Amani War bear back in the day. The driud forms look really cool, all of them.
I started playing WoW when I was about 13, back in TBC, and my first character was a troll hunter. This was because my (much) older brother at the time played a troll shaman and wanted to be just like him, having watched him raid ZG with his friends. Spent a good part of my childhood raiding Gruul's to Black Temple, participating in guild RP events with awesome people I met from all over the globe, and doing arena 2s with my brother, which brought us a lot closer together. Although I eventually transferred off my original server and faction-changed to play with my RL friends on Alliance, I always kept a placeholder character in my hunter's likeness and name for posterity's sake on the original server.Now in preparation for BFA, I'm back and finally levelling him up again. Taz'dingo!
I really hope they bring Hakkar back in some way, shape, or form considering he is heavily referenced in a "blood god" way.
When leveling a troll and accepting a quest from the troll starting area NPCs, they always confuse me."Stay away from da voodoo" and "Come get da voodoo", so is voodoo a good or a bad thing?
Zandalari is pretty awesome, shame that alliance is BiS. And i liked old ZulGurub, especially tiger mount that i dont have
My favorite troll memory is when vol'jin came back to life, oh yeah that still didn't happen
I just love Troll society and the variation you get in the different tribes. I love that the Zandalari are known for being scholarous, a change from the other more wild tribes like the Revantusk or Vilebranch. I didn't like trolls 6 years ago but now I think they're fascinating, I guess a troll raid each expansion helps? Either way, looking forward to playing a Zandalari Dinomancer!
Would say that my favorite troll memory would be when Zul'Aman opened up. Zul'jin was such a badass!Can't wait to see what the Zandalari trolls will bring to this warEspecially what kind of traits they're going to have.
My favorite troll memory was leading ZA bear runs in Burning Crusade. I was one of the last people to get my bear from our group and remains one of my favorite mounts to this day.
My favorite troll memory was not experienced in World of Warcraft. It was partially experienced in Warcraft II, and in Chronicles. What I love the most about trolls is how many varieties there are, and how each tribe is so different from the rest, yet somehow they always manage to end up unified to conquer the rest (well, except the poor Darkspear). The troll empire is one of the most magnificent empires in history, not even just Warcraft history but history overall. From trolls came elves. From elves came many of the things we see in modern history. The Zandalari empire helped shape Azeroth as it is right now.I'm excited to see the Zandalari join the Horde. But my favorite troll tribe to ever join the Horde was the Amani. Amani trolls have been contesting the lands of Quel'thalas for ages now, against the elves, their long distance relatives. What I loved the most about the Amani trolls joining the Horde was that they just joined because of convenience; they didn't even like the orcs, or the goblins, or anyone who wasn't one of their own for that matter. They just wanted to take Quel'thalas for themselves and didn't care about the rest. They never gave a damn about the war with the humans, their quarrel was against Silvermoon and the High Elves.Zul'aman is one of the best places in all of Azeroth to me. Zul'jin is one of the most important characters I've ever seen, second only to Vol'jin himself if we're strictly speaking about trolls.I want to see the Amani become playable once again... maybe they'll even join the Alliance this time. Imagine this scenario: the Amani, now a broken tribe after the siege of Zul'aman, lost the Ghostlands of Quel'thalas to the Horde, their former allies. Now they seek revenge against the Blood Elves and the Darkspear who helped bringing them down. They meet with the void elves, exiles who were forced to abandon Quel'thalas as well by the very same Horde, and get introduced to Anduin in Stormwind, just because they want the very same thing as the void elves: vengeance against the people who exiled them from their ancestral home. I doubt Alleria would be happy to see the very same trolls she fought against for so many years; but maybe their hatred towards Lor'themar and the Blood Elves (and the Horde) would be enough to make them join the Alliance. It would make them the very first troll tribe to side with the humans. The same humans who descend from the Arathi who fought against them in the troll wars. Imagine how Danath Trollbane would react to that. Imagine an Amani troll warrior wielding Strom'kar, the blade used to kill so many trolls long ago. Imagine the storylines that could come from that alliance in the short future.I think it would be epic.
