I appreciated this article a lot, as I just had the urge to roll a troll shaman for roleplay. I had thought about making her a member of a lesser-known tribe that comes to the Darkspear for allegiance. Obviously trolls have quite a history of territorial aggression, but I imagined that a tribe that has been living on isolated islands for years might have become a bit more peaceable, and perhaps would prefer to ally with the Darkspear than the Zandalari, considering the warmongering going on with the current patch. I'm glad to know that this potential background wouldn't be ridiculously outlandish.

As someone who loves Vol'jin and the Darkspear, I don't understand why so many roleplayers (not just you) feel the need to play a troll from some other tribe, other than needing to be "unique." The game makes it very clear that all player-character trolls are Darkspear. Even so, my RP guild allows for non-Darkspear troll characters, as long as they are from one of the Horde-friendly tribes, i.e. Shatterspear and Revantusk. ICly and OOCly, we do not tolerate trolls of tribes that are hostile (which is pretty much every other tribe) or are player-created (thus not supported by lore). We do play as our Darkspear having "clans" (families) to further develop their identity.After the awesomeness of retaking the Echo Isles and Vol'jin: The Judgment, why would you want to play any other troll but Darkspear?
