No. We don't need any more races.
No. I'd rather have new races.
I don't care.
For completely selfish reason, I would very much like high elves.
The thing with me is that I really like the elven race: their lore, their appearance, their in game voices and such. At the same time though, I'm not exactly attached to the Horde; they're the opposite of the sort of faction that I would like to have my characters' associated with. I like the classic 'good guy' fantasy races with their extravagant cities, pretty landscapes, and (relatively) pretty people. The Horde is much too barbaric in aesthetics for my liking, and I only play on that side because my like for blood elves outweigh those drawbacks.
I have never noticed the eye colour of any of my characters.
They've painted themselves into a corner by making Blood Elves a Horde race. And they should've let it be and not brought up the subject of High Elves again in the lore... what was the point of the Silver Covenant other than to get RP nuts excited for nothing?
There's already too many different factions of Elves.
I want High Elves on the Alliance and Eredar on the Horde.
I speak my mind, I don't sugar coat it and I don't read replies because most of the time it's someone who apparently "got their feelings hurt".
I would love High Elves. Lore aside, I'm not a fan of playing Night Elves really (the blue/green/purple/white hair color, meh), and I don't play Horde (though I have a Blood Elf that I got to 50 or so, I think). I would definitely make one or two on my account if I had the chance.
I think I'd also like a familiar race more than I would a brand new or unfamiliar race to be introduced. For me it'd have more impact since they already have a deep history with the Alliance, rather than the Jinyu and some of the other suggestions I've seen. But that's just my opinion.
Now that the Sunwell has been restored both Blood Elves and High Elves are drawing power from it again, meaning the Blood Elves have no need for fel magic and the High Elves can stop being tee-totalers. In other words they're pretty much back to being the same (the green eyes of the Blood Elves should really begin to fade in fact).
I think for a lore standpoint it's hard to justify adding high elves as a playable race. I think wasn't most, nearly all the surviving high elves became blood elves and a very small minority of high elves remained, who didn't become blood elves? Like are there enough in the world to justify being a playable race?
I could see them evolving into a neutral type race... join the Alliance you stay a high elf. Join the Horde and become a blood elf. Still I think with technical standpoint some players on the Alliance who feel cheated like they got regifted a player race from the other faction with a different coat of paint. Especially if the Horde got something to even the playing field like something new.
Plus I like blood elves on the Horde side, kinda of a nice clash of culture and break from the traditional fantasy cliche of the 'high' elves fighting orcs and goblins. But hey, who am I to say what the future will or won't bring?
also that is so much more different than anything in WoW

Wouldn't mind to much as long as they include some cool races along side them, have always thought it be cool to be a naga or orge, I know lore goes against alot of them but just from a what like personally.
