Zul'jin is a Physical Damage Assassin who gains power while losing Health.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Zul'jin is a warlord of the Amani forest trolls and has been chieftain of the Amani tribe since before the Second War. Zul'jin and the Amani tribe were allied with the orcish Horde for the duration of the Second War, but Zul'jin himself was captured near its end by the Alliance. Upon gaining his freedom he went into hiding to rebuild his army and plan an attack on the remnants of the high elves, now known as blood elves, only to find them allied with the Horde.

A fierce forest troll of the Amani tribe, Zul'jin's ability as a warrior and leader meant he was able to do what no other troll had done since the Troll Wars: unite the warring tribes of Zul'Aman under a single leader. He was infamous for his daring raids on the outskirts of Quel'Thalas at a time when trolls had been completely beaten into obscurity by the high elves. Some claimed he planned to unite all trolls, but his plans were quickly put on hold by the events of the Second War.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Zul'jin made his debut in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness (December 1995).
  • The story of how Zul'jin lost his right eye to the elves, and lost his left arm escaping them, was told in the Gods of Zul'Aman patch trailer.
  • Zul'jin is the first and only troll hero in the game.
  • Zul'jin is shown to be two-handed and two-eyed like in Warcraft II instead of having one of each cut down as his appearance in The Burning Crusade. His bio also shows that he hasn't regressed to his all-hating self of the expansion, only concerned about taking back the Amani from the elves and mostly using throwing axes, the only time Loa magic is used is during Taz'dingo! to render himself unable to die for a few moments.
  • Zul'jin is voiced by Chris Metzen in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, and by Andre Sogliuzzo in Heroes of the Storm. [1]
  • Zul'jin's dance is a reference to the Axe Gang from the movie Kung Fu Hustle (April 2005).
