    And finally, I pass through death's door.
    Or not, as it were. That decision isn't one I'm ready to make yet. There's too much left to see!

        huskar batrider and dazzle have some similarities to troll in their weird colouring, bent noses(atleast huskar and batrider) finger count, fangs and tribal nature. plus they used to all be trolls in wc3 so i see no reason to believe that they aren't all trolls now.

        plus cmon don't ruin the sig brah.
        big plays
        i'm keeping the gif because it's so awful

          Ah, but Huskar and Dazzle are still distinct from troll, while being more similar to one another.
          They also have much more distinct beliefs and culture than Troll, while trolls are confirmed to not really have much culture.

          If they are related in any way, it's a link that was lost a long time ago. They are in most likelyhoods a distinct species.

          As for Batrider... he's definitely not a troll. Look at him. His teeth are all wrong and no trolls are yellow.

          Shadow Shaman is actually half- Hill Troll. He's made fun of for it.

            We as humans have different races and cultures as well.

              True!
              I'll just point out that other races in Dota all respond to one another, while Troll never says a word to Huskar other than that he and Huskar are a bit similar.
              This may indicate a distant relation. Who knows!

                    Well, why not fix that with a bit of light reading?

                    I heavily advocate the comic, Are We Heroes Yet? as being excellent work!

                          There's no new hero or new page of archronicus. I guess that's the reason
