The ferocity of Kalimdor’s raptors has enthralled the Darkspear trolls ever since their arrival on the Echo Isles years ago.

Skilled Darkspear riders have even been known to channel their raptors’ savagery to suit their will. Possession of these predators is also one of the most auspicious signs of status among trolls; many have died trying to subdue these swift and deadly raptors, and to control one indicates great station.
