Probably quite an unpopular opinion, but I've had it with Trolls and Troll content in WoW. I don't have anything against Trolls in general, but why do we have to have at least one major instance in every expansion, quite possibly more than that? To me, Trolls are mostly comic relief. They speak with an exaggerated vaguely Jamaican accent. They enjoy weed. They worship animal gods. And they're all the bleeding same. Sure, some of them live in the north, some live in the jungle, some in the desert but really, what's the cultural difference between Amani and the snow trolls in Northrend? AND WHY ARE THEY ALL OVER THE GAME? At this point, there are probably more troll-themed instances than there are Orcish, Tauren, Worgen, Forsaken and Goblin instances combined. Imagine, if one third of the all instances in the game were Gnome-themed (Gnomeregan at its most annoying) and maybe you can feel my pain.So please, pretty please, no more Troll content for at least one expansion.

I totally agree with this, I honestly can't stand trolls.

Blood Elves are, if anything, more of a form of comic relief than Trolls. Goblins are also. You have these prissy, uptight socialites who ironically got thrown into a group of dirty, smelly barbarians and get consistently teased (even by Blizzard) of their femininity. Whereas Goblins just blow things up and have little common sense.Trolls ar eone of the more serious races of the Horde

My point is not that Trolls are the only comic relief in the Horde and should only be used as such, my point is that they are grossly overused and provide not enough variation.Also, the fact that you see Blood Elves more as comic relief and Trolls as one of the "serious" races says more about the Horde than the Trolls.

It seems to me that trolls are everywhere because they are the original native sentient race of azeroth. All others seems to be products of divine manipulation.

Too late fudge. Note the MoP map and that pesky lil' island at the top?Oh yeah.More trolls a'comin'

I support the moratorium on troll content. Even before the revision on ZG and ZA I felt there were too many troll instances. Having run each of those better than 40 times over the summer, I don't particularly want to set foot in a troll dungeon for a long, long time.But judging from the MoP map we are outta luck.

@AdeganTauren also seem to be a native natural species. They have a legend about being created by the earth mother, but even if they were created by a god they seem to have been around for just as long as trolls have.Also I almost forgot about pandaren. They're a native species too.

Trolls are THE original race. No, Pandaren and Tauren arent as old as them. Trolls have been around for over 15,000 years. LONG after the Titans creatures fell into corruption, over 5 thousand years before the night elves existed (when they existed the Tauren where just outskirt tribes one the edge of their society) the trolls had an entire Empire ALL over the continent.They are everywhere, because they where everywhere. And with their great society crumbled they havent lost their homes but have fallen back to their old ways. And those ways are tribal.And what exactly is overused about troll culture? THe masks? Thats the only common thing i can think. They are hardly the only ones worshiping nature spirits, or wearing barbarian cloths.

I agree about being pretty tired of Trolls. I was pretty disapointed when Blizz confirmed Zandalar was on the map. Hopefully, Zandalar in Mists' version of Tol Barad/Wintergrasp and is as involved in the overall story of the expansion as those zones were (aka not at all).I understand the lore about them being the oldest race on Azeroth, but unless we're going to explore something related to that part of them, I think I need a break from them. I mean when we left the planet in BC there was a troll instance added. They're as ovder-done in the game as Night Elves are in the novels.
