WoW - Wrath of the Lich King - Preview @ CVG

CVG previews the upcoming expansion Wrath of the Lich King for World of Warcraft and talks about trolls:

The real problem, though, for players and the Grizzly Furbolgs, is the trolls. To the North of the fallen World Tree is a troll temple, Drak'Tharon Keep. It's a two-wing dungeon meant for players between level 72 and 76, a strange place filled with dinosaurs and lizards, and teeming with undead. Its final boss fight takes place on raised terraces, where the wizard will bounce players from platform to platform. You're sent in to discover just why the Trolls are leaving their home zone of Zul'Drak. That's the next stop on the tour.

There are plenty of Troll temples and dungeons in World of Warcraft, but never a Troll zone. Zul'Drak is a homecoming, then - a sprawling mass of ruins and broken stone temples that serve as home to the Ice Trolls. The good news is that the Ice Trolls are the first to have any real success against the Scourge. The Alliance and Horde are sending heroes to their zone to discover what weapon or magic they're using to push back the Scourge.

There is bad news, however. At the very centre of the zone is a vast pyramid. It's where the trolls previously worshipped their animal gods. When the Scourge invaded, they stopped worshipping their gods, and began sacrificing them. It granted them just enough power to repel the undead. But now the gods are angry.
Rather than stay and watch the fireworks, our tour moves west, to Dragonblight. For many races, Northrend is their home. For the dragons, it is their funeral home.
