    OT: Id only accept High Elves as a "new skin"/"sub race". I think the Revantusk Trolls (buff trolls) would be perfect for their Horde counterpart...see The Hinterlands.

    Nah. We'd only get a reskin, and even if they did update the model, it doesn't fit in lore-wise.

    Elves is clearly what WoW needs more of.

    If anything Alliance should get Baby Ents and Horde should get Baby Ogres, show those silly kung fu pandas whose cute.
    "Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    No. High elves are just blood elves with lighter skin, and blue eyes instead of green. Look at this picture, you can barely tell which ones are high elves and which ones are blood elves:



    If we were still in classic WoW, than I'd say yes. But the Horde gained blood elves in TBC, and since then its a lost case. Playable high elves could work if the blood elf race was neutral. If the elf you play chooses the Horde faction, he becomes a blood elf. If he chooses Alliance, he becomes a high elf. But we're too late for that, the blood elves are a Horde faction and it will never be changed due to gameplay reasons.

    Lolz, we can easily see which ones are high elves and which ones are blood elves, in fact, only the bottom right picture represent a blood elf.

    Furbolgs seems reasonable, Jinyu are out of place everywhere outside Pandaria (in my opinion), and since we'll probably never come back to Pandaria, it's also a lost case.
    But High-Elves are way more integrated in the Alliance than thoses two races, it would be way more popular.

    The one in the right bottom picture isn't even a high elf or blood elf, he is the half elven son of Alleria and Turalyon, I guess they gave him a blood elf model because his mother had green eyes.

    No i dont want to see Horde-like race in alliance ! High elves r so few now. they dont even have sufficient numbers to form "new class" and join alliance ... 1000 max ?
    I wouldnt like to see Brethren killing each other (dont ca about stupid pandarean ). Both blood elves and High elves have epic lore and wouldnt like to see that spoiled !
    High elves serve alliance already as NPC-s and that is quite enoigh already ... 3 elf race ? :O Lets us call game : World of Elfcraft!

    The goblins as a playable race come from shipwrecked goblins from a boat which was escaping from the Cataclysm in Kezan, they got attacked by the Alliance and many of them died, drowned or killed by the cannonballs of the Alliance, they were less than 100 in the boat, and even on Kezan they weren't many at all, BUT, it became a playable race, no one noticed that, and no one cried about that.

    The greatest empires azeroth has ever seen were build by trolls and their descendants, which includes elves, so elfcraft would be inaccurate, world of trollcraft would be better ;P

    Ones that pick horde become blood elves and alliance high elves.

    Give horde ogres to compensate.
    Ummm no? That would be one of the worse possible scenarios to happen involving High Elves.

    I cannot agree with that. They might become neutral race as Garrosh hates his ally blood elves and intends to get rid of them, so does Lor'Themar. He was organizing secret meeting to Varian Wrynn and was about to leave horde when the thing with dalaraan occurred ! Jaina just didnt know that elves might return to alliance

    And so it situation between Horde (garrosh) and Blood elves gets worse next patches, Lor'themar might truly leave horde which lets Blizzard make them neutral race

    Im guessing you've missed the part where Sunreavers and Silverwing Covenant simply despise each other...

    Well they changed his eye colour to blue, that's just an older picture of him. I actually imagine they will make Alleria have blue eyes when she reappears as otherwise there will just be tides of people confusing her with a Blood Elf, although I can't really see the harm in such a minor change.

    Not a problem at all.
    Also actually, blood elfs are recycled from vanilla's high elves NPC model, doesn't cause any problem.

    Yep, I know that but... we face the fact that we now ave 3 elves (not to consider their troll origination) :P In game we have 3 elf race if u know what I meant

    The goblins as a playable race come from shipwrecked goblins from a boat which was escaping from the Cataclysm in Kezan, they got attacked by the Alliance and many of them died, drowned or killed by the cannonballs of the Alliance, they were less than 100 in the boat, and even on Kezan they weren't many at all, BUT, it became a playable race, no one noticed that, and no one cried about that.

    there might have been other goblins from other clans who joined horde afterwards ... What I want to say is that there are other goblins in azeroth which might have joined Horde, it is not given in lore ! But there is no other High elves who might be in other neutral or hostile clans.. they reside with Alliance and just ! and their numbers can be counted on fingers

    Hmm....while i certainly wouldn't play them (Can't stand high elves after the purge of dalaran), they'd make good cannon fodder for my sin'dorei toons...

    Tip: Listen to the Warlords of Draenor credits, there's a piece of music there you won't hear in game.

    Well every goblin player accomplished the same quests and saw the same cinematic, so, theoretically, every goblin player come from the same boat. I'm absolutely sure that there is more goblin players on almost each server than there was in this boat.
    There is a few number of High-Elves, but there are still more High-elves than Bilgewater goblins...

    Sunreavers deserved to be purged ! They betrayed the magi of dalaraan ! They used hospitality of the kirin tor, Cuz they could never let them in to dalaran ! At leaset it was what it seemed when incident with darnasuss happened ! It seems that 1 mage opened portal in the name of Sunreavers ! Jaina wasnt her guilt in this situation !

    No you just confuse playable goblins with NPC-s. In truth they saved 9 goblin NPCs out of 10 (for example) and 1 player not 9 NPCs and every other player that made that quest. In cinematic 10 goblins was saved in total not thousands of others players who completed that quest ! The story of goblins is based on the player, on you not the other players too dont confuse those 2 .... If what u say is true, then in worgen cinematic gilneas was razed by worgen thousand and thousand f times and gilnean people continued to hunt down worgens endlessy and battle for gilneas would never happen ... umm ... that doesnt make sense
