No. We don't need any more races.
No. I'd rather have new races.
I don't care.

There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.- Eugen Weber
I wanted High Elves to be part of the Alliance. They wouldn't have the same personalities that the Blood Elves got. Because Horde got Blood Elves, I no longer want High Elves in the Alliance.
Original Alliance races should have been Humans, High Elves, Night Elves, Dwarves and Gnomes.
Original Horde races should have been Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, Undead and Tauren.
Nothing can hold me back!
Tehee, you noticed. I just can't resist them. ^_^Yet another Draenei? All your high lvls are Draenei already. Maybe try a male panda monk.
Male panda would be cool I guess, but not as a healer.
Red skin is only achieved through drinking demon blood. That's why your Orcs got all red and cranky AFTER they drank from the poisoned well in WC III.All orcs with warlocks in their clan found their skin slowly turning green before they were ever offered the blood of the demon Mannoroth.
Nope. We definitely don't need a third race of elves. If you're seriously too bothered by Horde to play Belf then Nelf is good enough on Alliance side. There is no reason to make yet another elven race.
So Lore wise - makes sense.
Numbers wise - Do we even need to dispute this with how low the Darkspear trolls are? Or Gnomes even?
Looks - they could certainly look different, over a long period of time, and radically different life experiences after the schism.
Easily added with Dalaran becoming an Alliance city.
I'd like make a High Elf but if they decide to never add High Elves to be playable I'd be ok with that too. It's not really something I've wanted but something I would've just liked to have.

Wowwiki says you're wrong;
As does Wowpedia;The high elves were once a significant force on the continent, but in recent times their numbers have been dramatically reduced, 90% of their race was slaughtered in the Third War. Following this, another 90% of the survivors changed their name to "blood elves" in remembrance of their fallen brethren, and no longer consider themselves high elven. Around 25,000 true high elves remain, most of whom cling to the Alliance trying to restore the glory of their once great people...All high elves, regardless of class, status or upbringing, are addicted to magic, and all have some small proficiency in it. Unlike blood elves who succumb to it, high elves actively fight their addiction and are required to meditate at least an hour every day to maintain personal control. The high elves are not proud of this addiction, and take pains to keep it a secret. Being close to Moon Wells will satiate the addiction, as will the use of certain magical items, though it should be noted Night Elves do their best to keep high elves away from the Well and magical objects that provide the same result are rare.
If a high elf resorts to feeding off something else to sate the addiction, then they cross the line from high elf to blood elf. Contrary to popular belief, magical addiction is not fatal in and of itself (the only elves who have actually died from withdrawal were either elderly, very young, or already ill).Same race, same addiction, same racials.Like blood elves, high elves can use arcane magic, but most do not because most high elves are not spellcasters. Whether or not they are spellcasters, all high elves are suffering acute pangs of withdrawal in the absence of the Sunwell's energies. A few high elves here and there have realized the cause of their distress; others have not. A crucial difference between high elves and blood elves is that no high elves have decided to feed their hunger for arcane magic by draining that magic from alternative sources (during the time when the Sunwell was useless). Even today, though, a high elf might still succumb to that addiction and become one of the blood elves. Yet with the reigniting of the Sunwell, the pangs of the addiction felt are being eased and more high elves are no longer tempted to succumb to their own addiction.

Also high elves are too small to even be a faction/race, it is like if the wild dwarves were playable.

Except that little section makes you wrong.

Where is this thread even coming from? Has this debate been coming up lately at all?
