    The high elves are a playable race. They are called Blood Elves.
    Except that not all High Elves became Blood Elves.

    You know...like the Silver Covenant led by Vereesa, or Alleria.

    Or any High Elf who wasn't at Quel'thalas when it got blowdededed up.

    We have enough elves in the game.

    Their eyes are different indicating a corruptive-influence (Demonic magic).

    I always got the impression it was a name Kael'Thas gave his faction, which was seeking revenge for the destruction of their homeland by the Scourge and ultimately wound up exiled to Outland. When BC started the playable "Blood Elves" are introduced as remaining Blood Elves back in the ruined Silvermoon (which we hadn't previously heard anything about), who are looking forward to meeting up with Kael's faction in Outland. And of course once they get there they find out he's in league with the Legion and rebel against him, along with the Scryers who had already defected to Shattrath (how many Elf splinter groups do we need? Sheesh).

    Plus the playable Blood Elves are allied with the Forsaken (they're even considered special friends who introduced them to the rest of the Horde! Boy does that not make a lot of sense anymore) - pretty forgiving of them considering the Undead are the reason they became Blood Elves in the first place.

    And High Elves even use the Sunwell! Why are they even fighting each other?

    It just seems to me that all the reasons that Blood Elves became Blood Elves are defunct or completely turned on their heads now.

    If you've been doing the dailies for Dominance Offensive every day, the first part of the Blood Elves should be opening for you either today or tomorrow.

    Alleria is still "missing", so we don't know what side she'd fall on.

    Considering she HATES Orcs with a passion...and one of her sisters is an Undead abomination...and the majority of her people have allied with the Orcs...although some of her people led by her ALIVE sister are with the Alliance.

    I'd say its 99.999999999% certain she'd be an Alliance-favoring hero.

    I'd sooner roll a Hozen than a high elf. All those nib jibbing jickety wicket elves are all too busy getting high off something or other and suffer from the asian malady known as "all rook shame".

    i'd certainly play a hozen! punchin' butts and ookin' dookers!

    i just thought of something about high elves, they'd need new voice actors and actresses. right now they use night elf voices. certinly not too hard to fix though.

    High Elves for Alliance and Eredar for Horde!

    But first we need Ogres, Harpies and Naga!

  13. #53
    not sure if harpies would work... males are either super rare or non existent. i think i read some in lore speculation that they capture and rape men from other races to reproduce.

    Technically the Alliance already has the original High elves with the return of the Highborne.

    So why do they also need the Blood elf lookalike variety? besides the EK high elves are pretty much extinct now.

    Night Elven Highborne are not High Elven Highborne. The former might be the latter's predecessor, but they are two different races.

    No, and respect to Blizzard for sticking to their guns about not making this ethnic minority group of reskinned relics playable.
