I really found these guides to be kinda offbeat. I would have loved to have had a few of the lore refrences and the night elf that implied that blood elves are immortal was a bit disconcerting. Also the implication that the Night elves had no contact with the trolls before Warcraft three. And the dwarves being highly anti arcane.....They don't USE it much, they seem to try and cap dangerous magic, but I don't see them kicking all the gnome mages out of Ironforge.Going to read all of them but I'm highly unimpressed so far the only thing that struck me as DEAD on was night elves treatment of Gnomes.Other than that I think whoever designed these needs to go learn their lore and if you think they are that good you do to Allison.....Why? Because they seem to have no knowledge of ANY previous contact between the trolls and humans simply grouping them with the orcs as guys "humans have been finghting since the third war."Any nerd work his loremaster achivment can tell you about the Troll wars....hes named TROLLBANE for a reason people.

Ok seriously I think for every three things the guide gets rightish, it gets one thats iffy and one thats wrong or based off the wrong idea.Sorry Allison an ok guide but WAY to many holes.............

Hi Holgar,I do actually discuss the troll wars on the site, and in retrospect, I should probably have kept them in mind a bit more, especially with the blood elves. But remember: The trolls who they fought in the troll wars are not the trolls who are fighting in the horde. Forest trolls are not jungle trolls. It influences their opinion, plays off it, but is not the major factor for them.I don't think my treatment of the opinion of trolls was that bad. It's a plausible take.
