Empires

Why Gundrak is added to empires while it's only the capital city of Drakkari tribe, not the name of an empire? --Sul'jin 07:16, 2 January 2007 (EST)

I couldn't find the name of the ice troll nation. I did look into it. The only names available right now are Zul'Drak (zone name) and Gundrak (capital). Gundrak was used in one of the articles here (quote "These tribes founded a small nation known as Gundrak"), so I just put it.
Given the other two nations are named after their strongest tribe, I am hoping to find that the ice troll nation would be "Drakkari Empire", but i can't find any Blizzard sources using that term. --Voidvector 16:11, 2 January 2007 (EST)
I have replace it with Zul'Drak, should be a better choice, since it is the area name.--Voidvector 03:16, 3 January 2007 (EST)
If you were looking for a reference to a Drakkari Empire I've found it here:  [Drakkari History Tablet]. Requesting that the Drakkari Empire be properly represented as such instead of as "Gun'Drak". --Kra'Khed (talk) 14:48, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Whats the difference between the Drakkari empire and the Drakkari tribe?--LemonBaby (talk) 15:20, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
No idea. Gurubashi Tribe and Empire have different terms given. The main thing was that I didn't feel that the Drakkari Empire should be referred to as "Gundrak". The earlier comments above this stated that the only reason why the term "Drakkari Empire" hadn't been used before was because they couldn't find a canon reference that directly stated "Drakkari Empire". I found a reference and thought it was the more appropriate term to use here. --Kra'Khed (talk) 15:26, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
The Gurubashi were once an empire but have lost it and are nothing more than a tribe. And the Drakkari "founded a small nation known as Zul'Drak, which never achieved the size or prosperity of the two southern empires." The Drakkari_History_Tablets are used in the quest that tells us that "Gundrak looks doomed. You know dis to be true. If you be havin' the courage, search for history tablets to see what brought the Drakkari Empire to such an end." So they are obviously refering to the recent events that surrounded Drakkari tribe. Apperently the terms "Drakkari empire" and "tribe" are interchangeable.--LemonBaby (talk) 15:35, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Very well, edit the related pages however you see fit. The only point to my edit was that the Empire should be properly referred to as "Drakkari" rather than "Gundrak". So long as it's properly labeled as such I could care less about equivalencies. --Kra'Khed (talk) 15:39, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
I see your point :-) I will simply redirect the Drakkari empire page to the Drakarri tribe page until someone can dig up some lore around this nation :-)--LemonBaby (talk) 15:42, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. I always like it when the little errors you can find in WoWpedia get cleared up. Mostly because I dislike the presence of said errors. I doubt it's just me who feels that WoWpedia should be as accurate and reliable a source as possible. --Kra'Khed (talk) 15:57, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
In The Twin Empires, Lands of Mystery, and the Troll Compendium, Zul'Drak was not en empire (Gundrak was also a capital city, not a capitol building). Come WotLK, it was an empire, with Gundrak as the main building of the zone-city.--SWM2448 17:24, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Tribes

This template should focus on listing actual troll tribes/nations, not every single armed band. This is not how other racial templates work. Xporc (talk) 11:19, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
