Tortollan concept art makes them look so cool.

I checked this morning and still no vendors, no innkeeper, no open buildings (so outdoor areas only), no flightpath, no new named NPCs using the new models. It's pretty slapped together, and Bilgewater Harbor and Thunder Totem are significantly better at representing races via mini-capitals.

So at least Telogrus Rift is something new even if it has just a bunch of rocks to visit in space to visit.

Nope, sorry. You'd have to ask him yourself.

I suppose we have another retcon then the 3rd one to be precise.

Elune is Eonar was the first.

Demons are formed from Sargeras. Was the second.

YOUR CHARACTER IS NON EXISTANT IN THE LORE is the 3rd.

Legion has truly destroyed the lore.

I gave him credit because he made a statement. I didn't give you credit because you made a query.

Regarding that concept art:

Looks like a Keeper to me. One from Uldir, most likely. As Uldir has Troll-like architecture and is, of course, a Titan facility.

A titan keeper perhaps?

Is there an imgur album with the rest of these pictures?

Still better than a reskinned warlock order hall with a single tent. It might be early in development, but the cinematic has been made, so I doubt they'll be adding architecture now.

Seems to be the case, based on the name. I'm delighted by the fact that he's so clearly based on Inti. (He even has the typical Andean nose!)

Don't get me wrong, Aztecs and the other Mesoamericans are cool, but their southern compadres need some love too!

I don't think there's an imgur album, but maybe MMWQ is willing to re-post them here. Or you coukd join us on the Discord.

It's not cinematic, it's cut-scene, they can make changes and it will be in cut-scene.

Between the drogbar, who Xal'atath implies are a titan seed race, being called "rock trolls" in one quest, the Zandalari also having rocky protrusions from their bodies, and now this troll-like titan architecture in Uldir, I'm starting to theorize that BfA will retcon trolls into being another Titan forged race. Or at the very least being a natural race that was "uplifted" by them in some way.

Yeah if that thing is not a titanic keeper/watcher/whatever, I'll be very surprised.

Unrelated but the Nightborne unlocking got changed slightly, you now need to finish the Insurrection questline, rather than Good Suramaritan. Makes sense, gotta work up to/free the Nightborne to unlock them.

Oof, someone check on Mutterscrawl. I think the very idea will kill him.

Fools, the trolls don't get their look and aesthetic from the nearby titan facility and keepers. Rather, it is the other way around.

Troll Masterrace.

I too, enjoy a race on the verge of extinction, with the ones not doomed live by forgoing their cultural heritage.
