    This. Besides they went all out and gave us a new race AND a new class this X-Pac.

    I want to know what this "player base" is.

    I mean..if 50% play Horde and 90% of the Alliance players want High elves...it is less than half the players..so..what is the "player base"? It is a word that I start to abhorr...

    I don't care about High elves btw....

    Maybe some of us don't like Horde.

    I feel it would be worse. I only herd stories and read stories. I did not start playing WoW until 2007. One month after tBC came out.

    Tried a female panda monk. Animations are nice, but I can't stand their voices. >.<

    Deleted her, Monk will be Draenei.

    Yet another Draenei? All your high lvls are Draenei already. Maybe try a male panda monk.

The timeline was before Liandrin defected.

These types have nothing to do with the playable blood elf as far as loyalties go.

    no, Night Elves either have Silver or Gold eyes. Not Blue and green. Green in Blood Elves is entirely a result of fel taint, similar to the green colour in Orc skin. This is confirmed by the devs and canon. Your headcanon is irrelevant.
    That's still not what Allies do to eachother.

    Ok, I slipped with the eye color. But the Orcs that are tainted by fel energy are red not green. Look at MGT the first boss' skin color is red.

    To be honest, I would rather want a "copy" of an existing race than having yet another elf race.

    That's silly as the are the same race/species. And as we know the devs are more concerned with the much older models first like dwarves, humans, and orcs.

    And normally when a race is added they have certain things: A Leader, a homeland, and a decent population.

    I think they should add the races we have allied with over the years in various campaigns.

    In WotLK the Horde initiated the Taunka, and in MoP they initiated the Hozen.
    In WotLK the Alliance initiated the Frostborn, and in MoP they initiated the Kinyu.

    However the other expansions the recruited races became playable, BC and Cata. Horde: Blood Elves, Goblins. Alliance: Draenei, Worgen.

    Orcs are naturally brown skinned. The fel taint made their skin green.

    Green orcs are tainted but red orcs are full on corrupted. Like with blood elves and felblood elves (They have wings, horns, and abnormal skin colors). http://www.wowpedia.org/Felblood_elves

    And what of black skin orcs? Like the Dragonmaw.

    It made them RED. Look at the clan that is still under the influence of fel taint, the Shattered Hand Clan.

    Problem with that was the backstabbers were talking to Varian about rejoining the alliance, meanwhile Theramore which they built the bomb for, and then helping the horde get the bell through Dalaran. I'd never play one ever. People say the Horde are not bad guys in this game.. Belfs are.

    Well the black skin is from living near the heat of Blackrock mountain, just as the Blackrock Dwarves are black skinned as well.

    Probably because of the volcanic ash from nearby Burning Steppes, that's why Blackrock orcs and Dark Iron Dwarves are black too.

    yes i do

    1 highelf vs belf rivalry = win

    2 the story / lore it would bring to the game

    3 should have been an alliance race in tbc made no sense at all making them horde.

    4 there a part of the old alliance i want my old alliance back.

    5 people that want to stick with alliance and play an (alliance race) should be able to have that option.

    6 return of highelfs makes sense with a burning legion expansion and the return of alleria windrunner and turalyon.
