Well, theoretically nothing about them being peaceful necessarily precludes them physically appearing brutish and savage before the Well started changing them into elves.

After all, even if they weren't aggressive themselves, they probably still had to be large and imposing enough to keep the other, more expansionist and militarily advanced tribes still thinking twice about trying to move in on their territory.

Were they specifically peaceful, or just not as warmongering and brutish as the other trolls?

I was reading The Last Guardian and I couldn't not think of this

What I envisioned was something more close to this depiction


Or at least a creature that's very similar to the felhounds like the vile stalker

They seem to have been pretty peaceful, judging by Chronicle's description.

Before their war with the aqir, the troll tribes claimed large swaths of Kalimdor. Many of these groups, such as the Gurubashi and Amani, clashed with each other over hunting grounds and territory. Yet one tribe was unconcerned with these battles for land and power.
[...]
The dark trolls cherished their independence from greater troll society, and they largely ignored the activities of other tribes. Unlike their Gurubashi and Amani cousins, they longed for a peaceful connection to the natural world. Dark troll mystics often sought ways to commune with the land and live in harmony with it.

That's actually really cool. I doubt it was intentional, but I choose to believe it was.
