The trolls fought them for many thousands of years, but were never able to achieve complete victory. Eventually, however, thanks to the perseverance of the trolls, the insectoid empire was shattered and its inhabitants dispersed into smaller colonies in the north and south. Two aqiri city-states were then established - Azjol-Nerub in the wilderness of the north and Ahn'Qiraj in the southern desert. Despite the trolls' suspicions that underground insectoid colonies also existed in other parts of Kalimdor, these were never confirmed.
After the insectoids were banished to the edge of the world, the twin troll kingdoms returned to normal life. Despite their glorious victories, none ever ventured beyond their original borders. Ancient texts, however, mention a small group of trolls who broke away from the Amani Empire and established their own colony in the heart of the dark continent. It was there that these troll settlers discovered the cosmic Well of Eternity, which transformed them into creatures of immense power. Some legends suggest that this is how the night elves were born. This hypothesis was confirmed by Freja, Cenarius, and the Court of Ages when questioned by legendary traveler and explorer Brann Copperbeard.
Fall of Empires
Soon after the discovery of the Well of Eternity, the descendants of the dark trolls developed their own language, named themselves "Kaldorei" and gained a powerful force. They built a strong and very expansive empire, quickly occupying vast swaths of the original Kalimdor. The night elves wielded magic never before seen by superstitious trolls and easily destroyed the twin empires, something not even the insectoid aqir could do.
The night elves systematically destroyed the trolls' defenses and supply chains. The trolls, unable to resist the destructive magic of the elves, eventually succumbed to the onslaught. The actions of the night elves provoked long-lasting hatred and contempt from the trolls, and the Amani and Gurubashi empires were crushed in a few short years.
Eventually, reckless abuse of magic lured the Burning Legion. The demons destroyed the civilization of the night elves. Although no information survives regarding demonic attacks on trolls, it can be assumed that battles took place across the continent.
The finale of this conflict, now known as the War of the Ancients, was the implosion of the Well of Eternity and the Shattering of the World. The center of the continent went under the surface of the ocean, and several smaller continents were formed from the mighty continent. Remnants of the Amani and Gurubashi empires survive today in the lands of Quel'Thalas and Stranglethorn Vale. The Azj'Aqir kingdoms of Azjol-Nerub and Ahn'Qiraj survive in Northrend and Tanaris.
Both troll civilizations regressed with the destruction of the world they knew. However, they later rebuilt their destroyed cities and regained some of their former power.
The long centuries after the Shattering of the World were very difficult for the trolls. Starvation and death were the order of the day in the shattered empires. Desperate and driven to extremes, the trolls of Gurubashi turned to ancient, mysterious forces for help.
Hakkar the Soul-Draper, a cruel and bloodthirsty god, heard the trolls' call and decided to help them. He offered them the secrets of his blood, which allowed the trolls of Gurubashi to extend their rule over almost the entire Stranglethorn Valley and some of the islands of the South Seas. Through him, the empire gained immense power, but Hakkar demanded that soul sacrifices be made to him daily. He wanted access to the physical world to terrorize and devour mortal beings. In time, the Zandalari trolls helped the Gurubashi trolls understand what they were really dealing with, and both forces turned against the bloodthirsty god. The strongest tribes rose up against Hakkar and his loyal priests, called Atal'ai.
The story of the horrific civil war that broke out between Hakkar's followers and the rest of the Gurubashi tribes has not been written down and is preserved only in oral history. The mighty empire was torn apart by the magical energy unleashed by the angry god and his rebellious children. The battle seemed lost, but the trolls managed to defeat the avatar of Hakkar and banish his soul from the world.
The Atal'ai were banished from Zul'Gurub and forced to survive in the unexplored swamps of the north. In honor of their fallen god, they built a great temple to Atal'Hakkar among the dense ferns, where they continued to worship him.
The war left the empire in ruins, and the individual Gurubashi tribes scattered. The Skullsplitter, Blood Scale and Dark Spear tribes ventured deep into the vast jungles of Stranglethorn to establish their own states. The shattered empire was left with a fragile peace, but rumors of Hakkar's prophecy of return spread throughout the world.
The High Elves, exiled from Kalimdor, came to the eastern continent and founded the kingdom of Quel'Thalas. Unfortunately, it turned out that the place they chose lay in the sacred lands of the trolls, beneath which lay the ruins of their former empire. This caused a conflict, but the magic of the elves scared off the superstitious bands of trolls. It took 4000 years before the trolls decided to start a war with the elves.
The trolls had a huge chance to win this war, but humans came to the elves' aid. Hand in hand, the humans and elves used fire magic to keep the trolls from regenerating. The troll armies were smashed. Many tried to escape, but were pursued and killed.
The forest trolls never completely recovered from this defeat, and history never again saw them rise as one nation.
When the Horde first appeared in the world of Azeroth, the trolls initially ignored the orcs. But when they destroyed Stormwind and marched on Lordaeron, the forest trolls saw the perfect opportunity to retaliate for their defeat in the Troll Wars. Led by the mighty Zul'jin, the forest trolls proved to be a valuable acquisition for the Horde during the Second War, and were able to successfully strike back at the high elves of Quel'Thalas. However, when Horde leader Orgrim Doomhammer decided to launch an assault on the people of Lordaeron instead of continuing the invasion of the elf kingdom, Zul'jin became enraged. Eventually the trolls left the Horde when the orcs were defeated and placed in internment camps, only the Revantusk tribe retained a remnant of loyalty to the Horde. The trolls returned to their old policy of ignoring the Horde until the Third War.
During the Third War the young Horde leader Thrall took the advice of the mysterious Prophet and set out for Kalimdor. Along the way, his ships crashed on the Dark Spear islands and came into contact with the Dark Spear tribe. The orcs helped the trolls repel the Covenant's attacks, but later all parties were captured by the murlocs commanded by the Sea Witch Zar'jira. Thanks to Thrall's efforts, the trolls and orcs managed to escape, but unfortunately the troll leader Sen'jin fell. His last wish was for his tribe to join the Horde, which they did. Under the leadership of the cunning Shadowhunter Vol'jin they settled in Durotar, on the Echo Islands.
Unfortunately, they soon had to flee from the islands to Orgrimmar, as the traitor Zalazane took over power on the islands. The trolls settled in the Horde capital and on the coast, where they established a village named after Sen'jin. The Echo Islands were not liberated until several years later.
After the events of the Third War, Thrall sent emissaries to the Hinterlands to renew an old alliance with the forest trolls. The tribes of Vile Branch and Withered Bark refused outright, while the tribe of Revantusk agreed and became allies of the Horde.
The fall of the troll capitals
In the desert of Tanaris, adventurers hailing from both the Horde and the Covenant constantly attacked the sand troll city, leaving it in complete ruin.
In the jungles of Stranglethorn, followers of the blood god Hakkari and Atal'ai summoned Hakkar the Soul Stripper to Zul'Gurub, and the Gurubashi tribe quickly joined them, hoping to regain their former glory. When news of the bloodthirsty god's return reached the trolls of the Zandalar tribe, they sent a contingent of Gurubashi priests to defeat him. Unfortunately, Hakkar enslaved the priests, and King Rastakhan sent emissaries to the various races of Azeroth for heroes from around the world to come to defeat Hakkar. The combined forces of proud Covenant and Horde representatives defeated the mighty priests and the god himself, and Zul'Gurub became but a shadow of its former power.
Shortly after the Blood Elves joined the Horde, Zul'jin, enraged that his ancient enemies had joined his recent allies, decided to leave Zul'Aman. Before his tribe could begin the war, however, Budd Nedreck and his team arrived on the scene. At his behest, the adventurers entered the empire to obtain the troll treasures. Not only did they get them, but they also took the life of the great chief Zul'jin. The surviving Amani remnants, led by Daakara, keep their heads down from their capital.
In Northrend, Zul'Drak was attacked by a plague of the Undead. The desperate Drakkari trolls were forced to sacrifice their own Loa - animal gods - to repel the plague. The Zandalar tribe stepped in again and saved most of the Loa, but unfortunately Zul'Drak was captured by the Undead.
A new troll empire
The cataclysm caused by the return of the dreaded dragon Deathwing and the chaos it caused, influenced new decisions and a new approach of the trolls. The tribe of Shattered Spear ended its policy of isolation and joined the Horde led by Garrosh Hellscream. The Revantusk tribe stopped being mere allies, actively joined the Horde and started fighting to conquer the Hinterlands.
The mysterious Zul, leader of the Zandalar tribe, organized a meeting of troll tribal leaders to discuss the future of their race. The meeting was attended by Vol'jin of the Dark Spear, Jin'do of Gurubashi, Daakara of Amani, and an unknown leader of the ice trolls. During this meeting, the leaders learned that Zul'Farrak is now a devastated wasteland and Zul'Drak has succumbed to the Plague. Zul stated that the trolls should unite and form a new empire. He tempted Daakara and Jin'do with promises to restore the power of Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman. The leaders decided to unite, only Vol'jin refused. When asked if he wanted to betray his own, he said that he considered the Horde members his own, and vowed that he would stop the trolls if they wanted to start a new war.
Knowing that a new troll empire would be a mortal threat to the world, Vol'jin sent his emissaries to Orgrimmar and Stormwind, as the Horde alone could not handle the trolls. The tribes of Revantusk and Shattered Spear also refused to join the new empire and remained loyal to the Horde.
With the help of the Promise Keepers led by Halduron Brightwing and commandos under the orders of Vereesa Windrunner, Vol'jin and his Dark Spear trolls managed to keep the Amani tribe inside Zul'Aman. Then, with the help of daring adventurers, Vol'jin launched an attack on Zul'Aman, ended Daakara's rule, further weakened the Amani tribe, and thwarted Zandalari's plans to capture this troll capital.
However, encouraged by Zul'Aman's vision of glory, the Gurubashi attacked the Stranglethorn region. The brave adventurers managed to push them back to Zul'Gurub. Meanwhile, the agents of the Dark Spear discovered that the Gurubashi leader, Jin'do, had managed to entangle Hakkar the Soul Stripper with spiritual chains, draining his power for himself. They found daredevils who decided to venture deep into Zul'Gurub to defeat the Gurubashi leader. Hakkar was freed and quickly deprived Jin'do of his life. The Gurubashi were defeated and the Zandalari influence on Zul'Gurub was cut off, but the price for this victory is the freedom of a bloodthirsty god.
The new leader of the Horde
Garrosh Hellscream began to pursue increasingly radical policies, not only towards the Covenant, but also within the Horde. He considered other races, especially trolls, inferior to orcs and began to push them to the margins. Eventually he expelled them from Orgrimmar, fortunately they were able to reclaim the Echo Islands where they could settle.
Eventually the trolls start a rebellion. They are aided by some of the Horde, who disagree with Garrosh's dictatorship, as well as the Covenant, who also want to overthrow his rule. Garrosh is defeated and Thrall appoints Vol'jin as the new leader of the Horde. Thus Vol'jin becomes the first Horde leader in history who is not an orc.
