Locations (film universe)[]




  • Anduin, Lothar and Medivh venturing into Stranglethorn and being ambushed by trolls also happened in the main universe.[5]
  • Trolls attacking Stormwind City also happened in the main universe, with several small differences. As such, the unnamed troll warlord and his son may be the alternate versions of Jok'non and Zan'non.
    • The warlord's tribe is referred to only as raiders. Given the similarities with the event from the main universe, it may have been the Gurubashi tribe here as well.
  • Zandalari and Drakkari are troll languages.
