I read all the Warcraft books and there's no mention of him in them, so how do we know that he's selling junk somewhere. This is confusing.

I find it confusing too, kiljaeden. I member freeing Zul'jin in the second level of the orc campaign in war2 and thought he was kinda cool, being the first hero I ever came across.

That brings me to another question of slight relation-why did the Forest Trolls break apart from the Horde? Is there any real reason? I always liked green trolls better than these stupid blue ones in war3

I find it a little unbelievable that Zul'jin ended up being a merchant....I thought that we might've run across him as a troll merchant guy in the RoC single player campaign, but darn.

simply put, the forest trolls (along with the ogres) left the horde because of the orcs going back to their little shamanistic culture thing. those trolls (and the ogres) are kinda evil and weren't down with the shamanism... this new culture is why the tauren joined them and also kinda why the island trolls joined them. although its also because the orcs saved them.(both of them)

That and island trolls are HUGE potheads, so they're down with whoever's smoking the peace pipe.

I don't remember anything about Zul'jin becoming a merchant .

Anyway, I'm not too sure (correct me on this), but I think Zul'jin (despite being a forest troll) united all of the warring Troll warbands together to fight a common foe- the High Elves. So yeah- maybe he's something of a hero among all trolls....even island trolls .

ALthough seeing as how they're quite isolated from lordaeron, I wouldn't think that the island trolls would be praising him so much . EG- "Vengeance for Zul'jin!" "FLames for Zul'jin!"

Warlock- help us!

well as far as Zul'jin being a merchat selling junk, that comes from the Lord of the Clans days... Zul'jin was forced into an internment camp along with the other orcs and started selling junk to get by. i haven't read lord of the clans but there might be info in there.

I too read lord of the clans, and I'm very sure that there's no mention of Zul'jin. You must be talking about the days when they were making it into a game and all, and even then, I must admit I didn't follow the game's progress that closely .

Does it take a genius to figure out that IS what he meant? He said the 'old lord of the clans days' and since the book is there, what else would he mean?

No, no, no. He became a merchant in Warcraft Aventures. He sells Thrall stuff and gives him advice.

It was a game about Thrall's rise to Warchief, but it was canceled a while ago. They put alot of the info from it into the book "Lord of the Clans" but changed it a bit.

Im sure if you asked people on this forum would be extremely helpful in helping with character bios and other parts of the site.

dude i remember one time i looked at all the legendary hero bios, and i went to the burning legion section, and when it talks about sargeras, it has a cinematic still of a close up of that demon in that one cinematic from war2... the one that's in some building and the doors open and the demon looks around and attacks the guy... yeah... deffinantly not sargeras. it looked like those demons in war2 that were like precursors to doom guards... with the really long horns that stuck out on the side of their heads... anyways...

http://war3.com/specials/cguide/twisting/sargeras.shtml

its funny to see how crappy the site is in all the seldom looked at parts... i mean i didnt even know that this site has a chat room until a couple months ago... too bad it doesnt work...
