Troll Compendium/Ice Trolls
This article is a copy of "The Troll Compendium," an official article by Blizzard Entertainment. It presented a variety of information about trolls.

Also known as: Frost Trolls
Historical capital: Gundrak
Known tribes: Drakkari, Frostmane, Winterax
Description: The skin of ice trolls can range from white to blue in color. A few green-skinned ice trolls have also been observed, but they are very rare, for such cases are matters of pigmentation alone (not plant growth, as with the forest trolls). Ice trolls typically have thick manes of hair.
Ice trolls are particularly savage and cruel, even by troll standards, but these unpleasant traits are not the product of the trolls' snowy territories. Rather, several troll tribes were driven into the far north long ago as a direct result of their behavior, and over time they developed into ice trolls.
History: Like other trolls, ice trolls are descended from the Zandalar tribe, but broke off to form several small tribes of their own. These new tribes proved too bloodthirsty for other races to tolerate. Driven out of civilized lands, the trolls were forced to settle in the far north of ancient Kalimdor, in the region that later become the continent of Northrend. Long before the Great Sundering, these ice trolls founded a small nation known as Zul'Drak, which never achieved the size or prosperity of the two southern empires.
For the most part, ice trolls have had little to do with the so-called civilized world; many of them still dwell in Northrend. Only recently have ice trolls been sighted in significant numbers in the Eastern Kingdoms, where the Frostmane tribe is launching increasingly frequent and aggressive attacks.
