Looks nice!I really, really hope Trolls end up with a bat like whatshername from the Echo Isles event, though. Seeing a Darkspear turn into a bird would make my inner lore nerd cry.

Don't get your hopes up, i was hoping for their cat form to be something more like the zulian tigers. I also hoped the bear form was a rhino and the travel form was a raptor.

Going on the troll feral forms I'm guessing they're going to get a blue/grey/green cockatoo.

Except that Blizz stated only that the new races were going to be getting the same combat forms, for simplicity's sake WRT talents. They've said no such thing about Troll flight form. If we take the Echo Isles event as foreshadowing, Zen'tabra turned into a tiger (which we've gotten, just souped up), and she also turned into a bat. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility.My vain hope is that the reason we haven't seen the model yet is because they've had to update the current bat model to modern standards. If they ARE lazy enough to invoke the Gameplay and Story Segregation trope again, there needs to be a fair amount of retconning in the STV revamp considering how the old quests go out of their way to mention how the Darkspear hate bird spirits.

Trolls really should get a wind serpent flight form.And here's my 2c on why:Darkspear trolls are often found in the company of reptiles. Their mount are raptors, they sell snakes as pets, and their shadow hunters summon cobras. According to Seer Janidi in Zabra'jin (who gives the quest Spirits of the Feralfen), the Darkspear consider the serpent to be a powerful spirit, but they disdain bird spirits as "weak, capricious, and best left to the Amani".Taken from http://www.wowwiki.com/DarkspearIt really just makes the most sense. If they do have bird flight forms I'm going to be very disappointed. Wonder if I can complain at the next blizzcon wearing a spiffy colored shirt and get an npc named after me....

Ugh, tell me about it. I am absolutely dreading the thought of a bird form for a troll, it makes absolutely no sense. Blizzard should no better. I understand that they want to keep things the 'same' so that no one appears to get special treatment, but for a simple aesthetic like Flight Form would a bat be really so hard to swallow? The Darkspear despise birds and consider them to be weak spirits, I just can't wrap my head around Blizz putting that in game. :( *crosses fingers*

I want a toucan with tusks!

There's no chance of Trolls getting anything other than a re-skinned bird. You know Blizz and their "recognizable silhouette" rule.

@PaultabAnd a remodeled bat ISN'T recognizable?
