Lately, every time I logged into WoW things have felt off. Something was missing for me, or, more specifically, for Aurashot. For years I’ve had a deep fascination with Night Elf history and culture, but therein lies the problem.
Trolls, as you may know, are one of the oldest races on Azeroth. They pre-date Night Elves, who were originally a group of Trolls who settled near the Well of Eternity. So in order to honor Aurashot’s ancestors, I have changed her from a Night Elf of the Alliance to a Troll of the Horde!
I feel so much better now that I’m being true to myself, and experiencing a part of Night Elf culture that I haven’t embraced before. Anduin was a little unhappy, but I had to do what was best for me.
Adjusting to life with tusks and as a member of the Horde has been challenging, but rewarding. Reimagining Aurashot as one of her ancient ancestors was fun, and I have a lot to learn about being a Troll.
For now, I still have to get used to navigating an unfamiliar capital city and befriending my fellow Horde. I can’t wait to share my next update with you!
