No. We don't need any more races.
No. I'd rather have new races.
I don't care.
Does WoW REALLY need another Elf race? What is it with fantasy and having multiple races of elves? Dark Elf, High Elf, Low Elf, Sorta-in-the-middle Elf, Wood Elf, Plains Elf, Water Elf etc. etc. etc.
Then amidst all the Elves we have 'Human' 'Dwarf' 'Orc' as if theres only one race of human or one race of Orc. I'd rather see subraces of other races in the game, like Dark Iron Dwarf. If you can justify an entire new race based solely on a different eye color, then I will do the same and suggest Dark Iron Dwarves as a Horde race.
They should've done this in TBC, instead of putting a group of draeneis who did not even exist in the lore.

Moira is volatile and could split at any moment, though. Hell, Magni could come back from being diamond and kick her out, it's not like he was particularly happy about her relationship with Thaurissan to begin with.
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
No, I think we have enough races.
Besides, elves are booring.
Sub-race? No problem. New race? Too small and shared-lore to build a new culture and nation.
And, there is no comparison with the Pandaren. The Pandaren share the exact same starting zone. All we (PCs) are nothing more than adventurous following a martial philosophy, we don't represent any Pandaren nation... yet...
The backlash about it being a reskin will be unquestionable. I say NO. Give us new and unique races. Not uncorrupted bloodelves.
You'd simply need to ascertain what work do you want to put in for these new races. New voices? HElfs already use NElf voices. Classes? Should Horde Highborn get the druid class? Animations? Special animations or copied? Start areas? Dedicated or existing?
Yes, because it's a win-win class. It wouldn't disappoint anyone, in a worse case people simply wouldn't mind them.
Also because of the lore.. but then again, like everything else, it should be a GOOD job lore-wise.
I never understood why RACE has to be the limiting factor of a faction. Of course that's how WoW has written itself of course, but at no point does it make much sense. Most conflicts are a conflict of interest, and factions are created based on ideas of what's rigth/wrong and people chose a side. WoW just forced War out of nothing, to have a selling point I guess..
I'd be interesting to see warcraft maybe evolve into something else than Race vs Race after a while..cause honestly, since TFT there has been no incentive at all for war, just smaller conflicts here and there...
If there ever had to be more than 2 factions then it should be like this....
Alliance: Human, Dwarf, Gnome, Draenei, [High Elf]
Horde: Orc, Blood Elf, Troll, Goblin, [Ogre]
Cenarion Circle: Night Elves, Tauren, Worgen
Forsaken: Undead Human, Undead Elf, Undead Orc
Pandaren should remain exclusively Alliance and Horde only, not the other 2.
Cenarion is allied with the Alliance, and Forsaken is allied with the Horde when it comes to 2-way content such as Battlegrounds. World PvP is 4-way.
High Elves would work but the problem is just that they're too similar to Blood Elves.
I'd rather they work on a newer race or add sub races to the old classes like Mag'har. Taunka, Forest Troll (Riventusk are with the Horde,) Wildhammer, etc.
The Highborne are the Nobles of the old Night Elf Empire. Following a series of unfortunate events, many found themselves exiled to the Eastern Kingdoms where they became High Elves. Another batch of Highborne, however, survived in the city now known as Dire Maul. These recently left and rejoined their kin in Darnassus.
My little addition is to postulate a disagreement - some didn't want to seek out the Darnassian Night Elves and instead opted to seek out their Highborne kin, the High Elves, instead. In this way, the Horde get Night Elfs to offset the Allaince getting Blood/High Elfs. Everyone is happy because everyone gets something equivalent to the other - whether they like what they got is another question. Even Blizzard can end up happy because the change necessary is minimal.
