Here's a crazy theory - what if the Titans are creations of the Old Gods? The Titan's metallic nature seems to indicate that they are, or at least once were constructs. The Old Gods are definitely more organic, and their title indicates they may have been the original rulers of the warcraft universe. A mechanical original would also explain the Titan's desire for order. We do know the Old Gods aren't native to Azeroth.You know, if we exclude races that are descended from titans, raised from beasts, magically transformed or alien invaders, that makes the Trolls the only naturally occurring race on Azeroth.Unless they're snake-people. Which would explain their body type, and the tusks.

According to all the lore I've read, the Old Gods *are* native to Azeroth, and the Titans are not. The Titans arrived and overthrew the Old Gods. Being metallic and constructed is much more a Titan-oriented thing -- the "curse of flesh" was the Old Gods' way to corrupt Titanic constructs, remember?So... no, I'm afraid that there is existing lore that contradicts your theory. They could always ret-con their material, of course, but I think it unlikely in this instance.

Adegan, you're right, snakes DO have tusks!!

You could always say that they were created from old gods from other worlds. There was an article here that said that the arakkoa in Outland were worshiping what is believed to be an old god, but that's still speculation...

Besides, there are plenty of races that evolved naturally on Azeroth besides trolls. Tauren, for one. And other non-playable races too - furbolg, gnolls, and quillboar to name a couple.
