The troll thing has a lot to do with racial abilities. Trolls are commonly seen as having the "worst" racials on hordeside. Bow specialization? Beastslaying? Compare those to the old-school WotF, increased pet damage, or increased health and a stun (which has long been the only way to get a stun with a shaman, making Tauren a very popular race, especially for pvp shaman).People seem to like to forget about or gloss over berserking. Yes, getting maximum effeciency from the spell requires you to be low on health, but there are plenty of environments where a dps player will find themselves with a diminished health bar.I play a troll, quite proudly. A troll arcane Mage, to be specific. And let me tell you - casting missile barrage while at low health with berserking and icy veins both up and running will confuse, terrify, and awe your guildmates. Throw an embrace of the spider proc on top of that and - well, it's a thing of beauty. Can't wait to wear my champion of the darkspear title with pride

I'll be displaying that title on my paladin as soon as I'm able, but you're absolutely correct. I didn't realize until I'd taken massive advantage of recruit-a-friend that none of my characters are trolls (due completely to terrible racial abilities). Unfortunately, unless I want to delete a level 60+ character, I won't have one on my current account. They certainly are one of the coolest races around though; I just wish they'd fixed the racial abilities earlier so I would have considered rolling one.
