Of course Ogres for the Horde and High Elves for the Alliance is a debt that Blizzard has towards his most loyal audience: us.
From the beginning of the Warcraft universe (many years ago) the High Elves and the Ogres were linked to the Alliance and the Horde respectively, and many of us would like that these races had their deserved importance in the World of Warcraft, ie being playable and playing a role in the world.
Obviously if Blizzard thinks a bit in ourselves and in what is right, the high elves and the ogres will be playable races, will have their leaders, their capitals, their starting areas, their settlements and cities, their mounts, their own architecture, their symbology, etc... like the other races.
Now, I, as a member of the Alliance, would like to discuss a few things about the High Elves:
- The optimum would be that the High Elves were an independent race with their own models, animations, voices and dialogues... Many will say that it can not be, that with the Blood Elves at stake that panorama would be impossible, but I say... Yes they can! Nothing is impossible for Blizzard! however it would also be acceptable that the Thalassian Elves would become a neutral race as the Pandaren, so they can divide into Blood Elves or High Elves according to their chosen faction.
- Moreover I must say that all the high elves are not just those of the Silver Covenant. The high elves that follow to Vereesa are only a small group of the high elves that are scattered throughout Azeroth and other worlds. In fact the high elves of the Silver Covenant are only the high elves of the kingdom of Dalaran, nothing more.
- I also like to talk about the leadership of the High Elves. Vereesa is considered as a candidate to lead all High Elves, however I do not think so. Vereesa makes her home in Dalaran and is the leader of the High Elves of Dalaran, but does not have enough charisma to lead all High Elves. But there is anyone who has it, her sister, Alleria. When Alleria comes back as the prodigal daughter all the High Elves of wherever they are will see her as an image of hope for their people. Alleria, a hero of her people and a strong leader loyal to the Alliance. Along with her the fate of the Quel'dorei is assured.
- Finally I would like to talk about the physical location of the High Elves. They are currently scattered throughout Azeroth and other worlds, but their main center of operations and last bastion of their noble race is safe. I am referring to Greenwood, that area currently inaccessible in the game located between Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas. From there Alleria could lead her race, while keeps out the Forsaken and the Blood Elves, who attack their territory by both sides. In fact that huge zone could contain their starting area, and their "capital" could be a new elven district located where the old Stormwind Park was located.
