World of warcraft: Warlords of Draenor gives trolls a makeover, but instead of playing down blemishes the visual upgrade enhances them beautifully.

Warlords of Draenor, WoW’s fifth expansion, brings with it a graphical upgrade to most races. The latest character modes to be revealed are the male and female Trolls.

Trolls aren’t supposed to be pretty, and one of the coolest things about the new models, I think, is that you can see little lumps of blemishes all over their skin. Warty trolls! The best.

As with the other races, Blizzard has also redone some of the animations. According to a Battle.net post, the art team had a tough time animating around the new tusks.

“We actually had to model the Troll with a flat lower lip; then, for each facial customization option, we went in and posed their lips to naturally wrap around each tusk option,” Chris Robinson wrote.

Huh. I can’t wait to see them in action.
