However, considering you get to add the Znadalari Troll to your roster, it is worth it.

Unlock Zandalar Forever Achievement

The first thing you need to complete in order to unlock the Zandalari Troll is the Zandalar Forever achievement. For this, you first need to reach Zandalar. This can be done by two methods. If you have been to Zandalar before, you can visit it again using a portal in the Orgimmar portal room. But if you haven’t been to the land before, then you need to speak to Sylavanas in Orgrimar. He will assign you a quest called the Battle for Azeroth: Mission Statment, which will take you to Zandalar.

After you have completed the Zandalar Forever achievement, it’s time to get to the Horde War Campaign. Thankfully, you don’t need to complete the entire campaign to unlock Zandalari Troll in World of Warcraft. Instead, you need to complete its first two parts.

  • But before you proceed to complete them, make sure that your character is at least level 50 or above. Otherwise, you won’t be able to start any of the two.

First Part of Horde War Campaign
