Discussion confirms the history of all elves. Changing OP as it is no longer relevant to the current conversation.
http://www.wowpedia.org/Night_elves#...ernity_OriginsBlizzard's recent confirmation that the night elves have evolved from a tribe of dark trolls, who had settled at the shores of the Well of Eternity, draws a great many parallels to the Ascendence of Man in Stanley Kubrick's 1968 epic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Well of Eternity and the Monolith function as a very similar plot device: A gift from an otherwordly and god-like super intelligence (in World of Warcraft's case, the Titans) which was meant to gradually elevate the world's native creatures to higher states of being. Interestingly, the short story by Arthur C. Clarke from which the script of 2001: A Space Odyssey would eventually be derived is named The Sentinel.
It was confirmed in one of the WoW magazines (issue 4?) in a column written by Brann Bronzebeard.
If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.
http://www.wowpedia.org/World_of_War...lume_2_Issue_1 Is the one that confirmed it.
Makes me smile knowing that Night Elves would not even be here had it not been for indigenous trolls.

I would love to get some Night Elf players to chime in and tell me if it affects them one way of another.

I'm reading about it here.
And high/blood elves came from Night elves ;P
He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
Werent Highborne(sort of like high elves?) evolved from Nelfs through the frequent use of arcane magic (which they later stopped using), and blood elves from the addiction of arcane magic?
Lich King: I spy, with my little eye, something beginning with a ...s...
Lich King: Yeah...
Arthas: God, I'm sick of this game.
Blood elves are the crack addicts of High elf society, high elves are the descendants of those who the night elves booted out of western Kalimdor for making deals with demons in return of wiping out all but those who were of noble blood and living in the city.
"The high elves were once a significant force on the continent, but in recent times their numbers have been dramatically reduced: 90% of their population in Quel'Thalas was slaughtered during the Third War. Following this, 90% of these survivors changed their name to "blood elves" or sin'dorei (blood elves in Thalassian) in remembrance of their fallen brethren, and no longer consider themselves high elven."
Edit: Also, they weren't called trolls, they were kaldorei. http://www.wowpedia.org/Kaldorei
Elves evolved from trolls
Humans are retard unwanted sons of Vrykul and the Vrykul were titan creations
Gnomes and Dwarfs are titan constructs
Orcs and Draneai come from another planet
and goblins were just simple primitives that was only made intelligent thanks to there proximity to kajamite though its hinted they may have been around since the time of the old gods
Blood Elves are an off-shot from Night Elves. They're Highborne who changed after being forced to live in the Eastern Kingdoms and adapting to living during the day instead of the night and away from the Well of Eternity. Which would make them twice-mutated trolls.
All elves on Azeroth are descended from trolls. Enjoy.
Look at the new Zandalari. They're the most night-elf like trolls in the game right now.
