Organization

Should the Faction section on the button be changed from Nuetral Hostile to Nuetral/Scourge? Considering that a large chunk of quillboar have willingly become undead. Hordesupporter 00:29, 28 April 2007 (EDT)

I don't know why it's "Neutral Hostile" anyway. This terminology is only used in the Warcraft III World Editor, and isn't used in WoW at all. Saimdusan 01:06, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

"Neutral Hostile" refers to any faction not aligned with either player factions but which is hostile to both. I think it's a good classification. --User:Vorbis/Sig

I disagree, from what I've seen pretty much everywhere else. "Neutral" means neither friendly nor hostile. It seems that "Hostile" is all that's required to mean they're hostile to everybody. -- Harveydrone ( talk | work ) 23:27, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Plural?

Quilboars or quilboar? Is there some sense in which one of these is appropriate but not the other? Eg, "There are three quilboars over there." vs "The quilboar are a noble race." There seems to be some reason to occasionally use "quilboar" as the plural form, but I can't figure out when.

Individuals as opposed to "the whole", I guess. User:Kirkburn/Sig3 23:39, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Language

Being that the quilboar are native to Kalimdor, it seems a little silly that they would speak Common or Low-Common. Most likely they would speak Taurahe (because of their close proximity to the tauren) or their own quilboar language; we could call it Pigahe! Pretty much anything would make more sense than them speaking Common, except for maybe Orcish or Ravenspeak. ~ Grudgham (talk) 19:24, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Culture

It states that females have no place in society, yet all Quilboar casters in game are female. They very clearly have breasts where all the other types of Quilboar do not. Pretty big contradiction isn't it? Not to mention the Razorfen are led by a female. Should this be noted somewhere on the page? Like an Info stub or something?

Sure.. put it in a new section labeled notes. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 04:40, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

To follow up on this... Roogug is a classic example of not always going by what the model is. Roogug is called a he, even though the quilboar caster model is a female. Because of this, I wouldn't say all quilboar casters are female, and this same argument can be used on all races with a normal model and caster model.

Connection to Harpies: Completely irrelevant?

I don't see the point in this section. It's not remarkable at all for quilboars to have paintings of other races that live near them; they have paintings of what appear to be centaur as well. (which is shown in the gallery right below the section)

Of course there's "some kind of connection" between quilboars and harpies. They live in the same area, the Barrens. I understand that it is speculation, but it's honestly not notable at all. A primitive race acknowledging other, possibly predatory race in the area is not worth mentioning. It should just be removed, in my opinion. Maybe put a trivia section mentioning they have paintings of centaurs and harpies in some of their settlements, but not a standalone section. Biggrouse (talk) 17:43, 2 May 2013 (UTC)Biggrouse

I shifted it up into the Trivia section. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:31, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

They're getting new models in Battle for Azeroth

Hey, just thought i'd let y'all know! I'm not sure if old models will be updated as well.--Dperrea (talk) 04:17, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

That seems to have been how it's been for the last few model updates, but it's good to know in advance! :) PeterWind (talk) 13:57, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
