super duper darkspear, the OP is.
I think that Alleria has pretty good reasons to support either side, but I just feel she would be inclined to agree with Vereesa. By a small margin.
Regardless of how she feels about Blood Elves vs. High Elves, I imagine she'll be horrified about Sylvanas (and the Scourge's devastation of Silvermoon). Poor Alleria is in for a nasty shock.
To be totally accurate, after she left the Elves of Silvermoon split in three - Kael'thas' Blood Elves who went to outland, the playable Blood Elves who stayed behind, and the High Elves who were mostly in Dalaran at the time. It'll be interesting to see what Alleria makes of this and which side she chooses, if any.
I haven't exactly read much except the first post in this thread but was wondering what would be the next hero class/playeable race if burning legion was the next xpac and they decided to put one in, I know there's a bunch but i'm not that big into lore so don't know which would suit the xpac.
I don't think she can "stay" on the Alliance side, since the Alliance she would return to is a) a bona fide enemy of Quel'thalas, and b) radically different in its make-up than the one she was an ally of (say high, Night Elves). I don't think she'd be immediately or implicitly hostile toward the Alliance, but I don't think she'd be best buds with them considering the laundry list of offenses against her people that actually kind of shame what the Orcs and Amani accomplished in the Second War.
I actually think that the moment the high elves set foot on Draenor or maybe when the portal collapesed that they felt the pangs. They muct have chalked it up to the new world maybe, and since they were all string combatients I don't think death as an outcome was even a thing. It just seems that all the helves in outland just took it on stride.
And, Alleria's people are still technically on the Alliance (High elves). Her sister is also there, and Sylvanas is so much of a nut job that I don't think Alleria will try to change her ways. Also, the recent Blood elven/Troll attack on Theramore will probably make Alleria choose the Alliance side considering they just slaughtered a lot of High elves living there. Let's not forget her husband either; huge pro-Alliance hero.

Probably the most fair thing to say is that the history of the elves has changed so much that it is hard to say with certainty that she will be Alliance-aligned, but I sincerely hope she is not neutral and certainly do not hope she chooses the Horde. I do not see any way that her aligning with the Horde being believable given her history with the orcs. The most I can see happening is that she is neutral towards blood elves but still hostile towards other Horde races.
As for managing any sort of magical addiction, I'd imagine that she'd handle it the same way every other high elf that is still around does, or found a new lightwell source. Who knows, perhaps she even found a cure for their addiction while she's been off doing whatever she's been doing.

all of her people were disgusted by the blood elves when they came through the dark portal and continued to side with the alliance even after finding out what happened.
what makes you think alleria whos own husband and son and sister and niece and nephew are still alliance would think differently?
Edit: Crap, didn't see that the thread was a year old.

EU first PG wave 30, come at me bros.
Alleria didn't see what Kael'thas belves did in outland, if/when she returns, she will see them with the sunwell restored and them not sucking fel.
Even the high elves of Allerian stronghold have started pilgrimage to the renewed sunwell. Auric Sunchaser, the high elf leader of Allerian S. is now an ambassador there.

He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
It's been years since they disappeared, and they've probably gone through quite a bit in that time. Couples don't always stay together. It's possible that during their adventures in the beyond they grew apart, or someone betrayed someone else, and we'll get a hero for each side. The expansion could be the story of their battle, and their reconciliation. All sorts of opportunities for drama.
That would be nicely complex, although I know it would disappoint the people who want a simple romantic story. I like my romances more complex.
