Third War and aftermath
As tribal rivalries erupted throughout the former Gurubashi Empire, the Darkspear tribe found themselves driven from their homeland in Stranglethorn Vale. Having remembered the ogre mage Mai'Zoth, the exile happened some time after the Second War (considering Mai'Zoth was created by Gul'dan during the war). 随着巨魔们在暗矛群岛定居下来，他们发现自己很快被卷入了一场与鱼人的战斗之中。之后暗矛部族还遭遇了新的敌人：人类，由Kelen the Seeker领导的库尔提拉斯舰队正在群岛上搜索偷走船只的兽人。暗矛巨魔们的命运看似已经注定，直到兽人大酋长萨尔带领他刚刚释放出来的兽人们——同时也是人类海军正在搜寻的敌人——于一场大风暴后来到岛上寻求庇护。兽人们击退了人类，但那胜利只是短暂的。受海巫所控制，The Underworld Minions俘虏了几名人类及巨魔、还有萨尔和暗矛部族的首领森金，将他们当做仪式的祭品关进群岛下方洞穴中一个复杂的监狱里。萨尔设法使自己和同伴得以逃脱，却没能解救巨魔首领。虽然森金被献祭给了海巫，但他预见了萨尔最终将带领暗矛巨魔离开这座岛屿。
In the wake of the Cataclysm, the Zandalari trolls gathered together Azeroth's troll tribes in an attempt to unify them and restore them to their former glory - even if it meant turning against the other races of Azeroth. Despite ensuring the aid of Daakara and the Amani and Jin'do and Gurubashi, the Zandalari failed in securing the allegiance Vol'jin and the Darkspear who view the Horde as their true people. Knowing the grave threat on the horizon and realizing that the Horde alone could not stop it, the Darkspear sent emissaries to both the Horde and the Alliance to combat the emerging threats in Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman.
After Garrosh Hellscream failed to successfully assassinate the Darkspear Chieftain Vol'jin, Vol'jin recovered from his wounds in Pandaria and returned to Kalimdor to form the Darkspear Rebellion: an open Horde rebellion against Garrosh's tyranny. After acquiring all the allies he could, he took the fight to Garrosh's loyalists in the Barrens; culminating with Garrosh being overthrown in the Siege of Orgrimmar. Having earned the respect of the other Horde revolutionaries, Vol'jin was named the new Warchief of the Horde.
With Vol'jin as the new Warchief of the Horde, several headhunters have become guards of Orgrimmar along with tauren and many shadow hunters and other members of the tribe were deployed to the alternate Draenor.
Following the attaining of Prestige rank 2, the player is congratulated by the various leaders of the Horde, and Rokhan is present in lieu of late Vol'jin. Bwemba attended a dinner with Horde leaders after the Legion's defeat.
- Live in the Future
然而做出选择和实现选择又是两件不同的事。那些试图live in the future的暗矛巨魔们努力将自己的旧习惯和这些新的方式想调和。Some come closer to the target than others, but what marks these trolls is their willingness to try.
- Do What it Takes
The Darkspears were in big trouble, and then Thrall saved them. The tribe swore loyalty to Thrall and joined the Horde, but some still cling to the old ways. They value their elaborate, structured culture, but they know the Horde does not approve. These trolls decided to do what it takes. They maintain the facade of embracing shamanism but either practice their voodoo traditions in secret, or blend the two in a strange amalgam. The Darkspears who have not entirely discarded their tie to voodoo don’t see themselves as betraying their Horde allies. They serve Thrall with utter loyalty, but remain pragmatic. Should the Horde fail the trolls, they have their ancestral faith to fall back on. Trolls who do what it takes also favor the witch doctor class, but carefully avoid the darker aspects of the calling (at least when other races are watching).

One tribe of jungle trolls was forced to overcome its prejudices when it encountered the orc Warchief Thrall, and his mighty Horde. The trolls of the Darkspear tribe, long since exiled from their ancestral lands in Stranglethorn Vale, were nearly destroyed by a band of aquatic murlocs, but Thrall and the Horde managed to save them. In return the grateful trolls swore an oath of eternal allegiance to the Horde.
Led by the cunning Shadow Hunter, Vol'jin, the Darkspear trolls now make their home in Durotar along with their orcish allies. Their village, named after their fallen tribal elder Sen'jin, lies along the eastern coast of the harsh, rocky land. The Darkspear tribe also occupies tracks within the nearby jungles of the Echo Isles.
As part of the Horde, the trolls have extended their loyalty to the mighty Tauren, but they have little trust for the manipulative undead, whom they believe will visit only misery and strife upon their allies. It is not explicitly known what they think of the blood elves, but since the elves are addicted to and freely practice demonic magic, it is likely that the trolls do not think much higher of them than they do of the Forsaken.
"Island Trolls" was the name, which later was retconned to Darkspear tribe, given to this group of trolls in the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos demo. The missions involving them were not included in the retail release; however, they did reappear in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne as a custom campaign.
This could suggest that the Darkspear trolls, while once being jungle trolls, have become and may be considered island trolls.
Darkspear trolls have skin colors that range from pale, ghostly blue to bruised purple to sickly green. Their skin color is usually just one of those three colors, although sometimes there are trolls with mixed skin pigments but this is not so popular. Male trolls are hunched over in WoW and generally have long, protruding tusks that grow from under their upper or lower lip. Male trolls also have rather long noses and very messy, matted hair. Female trolls, on the other hand, stand up straight and erect in WoW, have rather small or squashed-in noses, and usually have hair in a wild updo or strewn across their breasts in thick braids.
- Information presented as coming from a supposed Blizzard Game Master says that Rokhan is now the unofficial leader of the Darkspear tribe, in replacement of Vol'jin.
- During the player's prestige ceremony, Rokhan's presence instead of Vol'jin might indicate that he has indeed assumed leadership of the Darkspear, at least temporarily. This is further reinforced by the fact that Rokhan has the same level and amount of Health as the other faction leaders.
