Frost? Edit

Does the term "frost dwarf" indicate that their skin is made of ice? Just like the iron dwarves' skin is made of iron?--WoWWiki-Odolwa (talk) 13:47, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

We have no clue, like i said in the article they may have been earthen who adapted to the cold, but there is a frostborn who isnt blue. forgot his name, but still they may just be that way due to the cold of northrend effecting them, like how taunka are "winter tauren"--Whitedragon254 sigYou know im seriously 1337 now. {T1337 to the extreme.CThe dragon protects me...that and my MG 30 glock of course..) 13:42, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Frost dwarfEdit

Other than the summon frost dwarf spirit spells[1] is there any use of this term in game, or do all the quests only make reference to the term "frostborn"?Baggins (talk) 23:52, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Ok I found the quest that makes the single reference to "frost dwarf". The quote is from Brann's pov rather than from the frostborn. I'd suggest that its the same kind of descriptive term as the Horde quests leading to the taunka which describe them as "winter tauren". No reason to have two pages for the same race. Its easy to note alternative names. From the frostborn's pov they seem to only call themselves frostborn, much like the taunka refers to themselves as the taunka.Baggins (talk) 00:44, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
"Race of frost dwarves", think of this in the same way as Sandfury trolls being sand trolls/desert trolls. Sandfury trolls are the only expamples of their type thus it becomes redundant to say that sandfury trolls are a race of sand trolls.
Flesh trolls are said to be made up of parts from multiple types of "northrend giants" but its been decided to delete the article because only one fleshy type northrend giant exists (storm giants). Unless you count vrykul there really aren't any other fleshy giants in northrend.
Since there is only one race of frostborn, and no other known races it becomes redundant to mention that they are a race of frost dwarves, when they are also described as dwarves in the game as well. The page also specifies that frostborn are also known as frost dwarves thus making it furtherly redundant the paragraph to say "frost dwarves are a race of frost dwarves. Unless more frost dwarf races appear there simply is no reason to make the paragraphs sound redundant and repetitive.Baggins (talk) 18:30, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Glorthal Stiffbeard Edit

Yeah, it seems trivial, but I still think this is a point needing of attention. The NPC quest giver Glorthal Stiffbeard is clearly supposed to be a Frostborn/frost dwarf. But his skin colour and beard don't match those of Frost Dwarves, yet he has the runic/jewelled marking on his forehead like the frost dwarves. So is there any explanation as to why he's essentially a hybrid? Was it an oversight on the developer's part using a wrong coloured model? Has he perhaps succumbed more to the Curse of Flesh? Or what? MegaNerd18 (talk) 01:09, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
