History Edit

At the ancient continent Kalimdor's center was a mysterious lake of incandescent energies, the Well of Eternity. It was the true heart of the world's magic and natural power. From this magical ether the Silithid were born. As the fallen Old God C'Thun recognized their appearance, he attempted to sunder the world that it once held in its unmerciful grasp. The Old God created avatars from the Silithid in its own image. These avatars were to be known as the Aqir. The Aqir ruled the lands of the far west. These clever insectoids were greatly expansionistic and incredibly evil.

The Aqir were obsessed with eradicating all non-insect life from the fields of Kalimdor. So the two big Troll empires of Gurubashi and Amani found their common enemy in the third empire - the civilization of Azj'Aqir.

The trolls fought them for many thousands of years, but never succeeded in winning a true victory over the Aqir. Eventually, due to the troll's persistence, Azj'Aqir split in half as its citizens fled to separate colonies in the far northern and souther regions of the continent.

Two Aqir city-states emerged - Azjol-Nerub in the northern wastes, and Ahn'Qiraj in the southern desert.

So the new kingdom of Azjol-Nerub that stretched like a great web beneath the desolate glaciers of the land later known as Northrend.

Thousands of years later when the Lich King extended his influence over Northrend, the shadowy empire stood against his power. The ancient subterranean kingdom of Azjol-Nerub, sent their elite warrior-guard to attack Icecrown and end the Lich King's mad bid for dominance. Much to his frustration, Ner'zhul found that the evil Nerubians were immune not only to the undead plague, but to his telepathic domination as well.

The Nerubian spider-lords commanded vast forces and had an underground network that stretched nearly half the breadth of Northrend. Their hit-and-run tactics on the Lich King's strongholds stymied his efforts to root them out time after time. Ultimately Ner'zhul's war against the Nerubians was won by attrition. With the aid of the sinister Dreadlords and innumerable undead warriors, the Lich King invaded Azjol-Nerub and brought its subterranean temples crashing down upon the spider lords' heads.

Though the Nerubians were immune to his plague, Ner'zhul's growing necromantic powers allowed him to raise the spider-warriors' corpses and bend them to his will. As a testament to their tenacity and fearlessness, Ner'zhul adopted the Nerubians' distinctive architectural style for his own fortresses and structures.

Though there are few pockets of Nerubian warriors left, they still seek to gain vengeance upon Ner’zhul and reclaim their subterranean kingdom, but with be impossible without the aid of the Horde.

Ice Trolls Edit

History Edit

Ice trolls were actually the first to be exiled by the original Zandalar tribe due to their highly unnatural bloodlust and brutality which included a hatred for their own kind.

The ice trolls have been the enemies of the Dwarven kingdom since the Dwarves invaded the surface of Dun Morogh and took it from the trolls hundreds of years ago. Before this catastrophy befell them, the ice trolls had controlled a small Empire similar to that of the larger Empires of their forest troll and jungle troll brothers. Recently in their ongoing ancestral holy-war against the Dwarves, they have been content to let the Troggs wear down their enemies for them, but how long can they survive this war.

For this reason the trolls have left the Eastern Kingdoms permanently and all have settled in Northrend, but to do such an act needs the help of strong allies.

Since Blizzard has a policy of choosing original and unique races, it's a rule of thumb that any 'race' so physically similar to a currently playable race that it could imitate the other with just a change of clothes should not be added to this list. But, what if you wanted to play as a troll character, then you could have multiple options, you could play either an ice or jungle troll, which offer different options. It could work.

Another Potential Horde race.
