Old gods would like to drive her insane, titans to subdue and controll her, and legion to kill her. And i highly doubt she could match Sargeras, Patheon or Influence of the old gods. If we had any other mentions of deities i would be able to go with her being goddes. But for now im pretty sure she is member of bigger groups. Keep in mind that only other "god" we met so far was C'thun who was infact worshipped by Qiraji (who have suprisingly similar social structure to night elves with priest caste and warrior caste), and he turned out to be octopus with giant eyeball.
    Depends on what type of god she is. Old Gods seem more like the killable gods but yet can still come back but they can be wounded or "killed". I suspect she's a Abrahamic type of god that cannot be seen, harmed, or killed. Invincible and all powerful. If that's the case then the Titans know better than to attack something they can't win against. Old Gods would also be aware of this fact so there would be no point in trying to drive her insane.

    Considering good old "gods create races on they own image" I doubt it. I mean C'thun is ugly and Qiraji are ugly as well. And considering that night elves are slightly "challenged" i really doubt elune is omnipotent. Also god's in games almost always follow more personalized form since your description fits "holy light" much better then elune considering what we know.

    While where at it, they might as well just make Vrykul decent from Hozen, so we would have full circle of what humans evolved from.

    I think I've read somewhere that Night Elves and Trolls are kind off cousins. Not sure if the post was true...

    Night Elves evolved from Dark Trolls, this is fact.

    Ugh. anyways. Elune is worshiped by the Night Elves (bright elves... oh, boy...), and, considering the Horde up to vanilla WoW does not truly worship the Light (Tauren worship the Sun, Trolls have their voodoo, Forsaken woship no one, and the Orcs... I have no idea), I believe it's a safe assumption to say that the Worship of the Light started with the Alliance. However, it's very hard, if not downright impossible, to say WHO between Dwarves and Humans began with the worshipping of the Light. I mean, Gnomes are technology-driven. So much so they didn't have priests until recently, and Night Elves, as mentioned before, worship Elune. Humans descent from the Vrykul of Northrend, and Dwarves descend from the Stone Dwarves who suffered the Curse of Flesh. But who came into being first is not defined, nor it is when the worship of the Light started, much less WHO started it.

    Hmm. I think I went on a tangent on the topic's subject. Better go back to it. Ahem. Anyways. As for the Origin of the Night Elves, I don't think Elune had a hand in it. I think it was simply the Well's energies that caused the mutations as generations passed. Yup, I don't think it was an instant thing, either. I think it happened over generations.
    It said BIGHT, It's a typo!! The N is next to the B

    worship of the light DID start with the "sindorei" (then high elves) and humans.

    I'm pretty sure it's canon though that the night elves-to-be settled near the well of eternity at some point and from that they turned into Night elves as we know them now (Not said anywhere how much time that transformation took, could have taken years, or generations, or maybe they just used a moon stone :P ), it hasn't been explicitly said what they started out as though, although the... ubiquitous nature of trolls (They're EVERYWHERE! >_< ) does make them good candidates as ancestor race.
    I think it's the Warcraft encyclopedia that calls this ancestors "nocturnal humanoids" that's vague enough to be some sort of undiscovered creature, or just dark trolls -the little we saw of them, had skin colors VERY simmilar to the night elves-

    The dryads and keepers are the children of Cenarius (though his sons and daughters can obviously make more).

    They're beings of nature, they could have just as easily been grown from a seed or a part of Cenarius himself.

    Kinda in the style of Greek-roman mythology.

    Best Idea Ever. Someone get on it.
    OT: NElves came from Trolls. AFAIK thats what the lore says (If I'm wrong say so =P) As for Elune. I really, really hope they don't make her a naaru/titan construct. I want her to be an actual deity.
    It has been scientifically confirmed that if Eiffel was green; he would in fact die.

    My curiosity is how would a proto-Nelf look like? what would their customs be? A bit of a slippery slope here but with ancients and even Elune..similar to troll Loas?

    In a lore article in the WoW Magazine, Cenarius, Freya and the Tribunal of Ages confirmed to Brann Bronzebeard that night elves evolved from the dark trolls. The article's been confirmed as canon lore, so it's no longer a question of what race the "night elves-to-be" were.

    Obviously Elune is a Xel'Naga, specifically: AMON

    When the Xel'Naga came upon Azeroth, they saw the perfection of form in the Dark Trolls and sped up their evolution by letting them get affected by the well of eternity.
    Elune/Amon defiled the Well in an effort to bend the dark trolls to his will.
    The earlier NightElves were hereby programmed with an override objective that made them seek the annihilation of trolls. (hence the obvious wars between elves and trolls: NE-dark trolls, High Elves-trolls, Blood Elves-Zandalari trolls and zul'aman trolls)

    However this forced will is not so strong anymore since the OVermind, Malorne then did the only thing he could do to escape this evil taint and seduced Elune/Amon and had a baby together: Cenarius. Born free of most of Elune's corruption (due to Malorne being awesomesauce) he was able to free some night elves from the curse when he took on a disciple to preach his lifestyle: Teaching Malfurion druidism.
    OVer the many thousand years malfurion's impact on the night elves society has mostly freed night elves from this corruption, thought they still dislike ugly trolls (which coincidentally is every troll).
    However, with malfurion pre-occupied on locating Amon in the Nether to kill him before he ends the world like he almost did at the end of starcraft 2 Legacy of the Void, which happened multiple eons ago, Garrosh is able to attack Nightelves without their omnipotent leader. Luckily the padawan Thrall has stepped up from time to time and others are joining the rebellion, but little do they know of the vileness that lurks within their beloved moon goddess Elune.

    Or something like this, OBVIOUSLY!!!

    XD amused....feeling Emerald Dream expac, will be about Malfurion finding his "primal" self... and to unlock the new player remodels, players will have to undergo the trials to do the same with lots of dailies and rep grinds.

    Finally, someone who understands how lore works!

    Primal Malfurion will finaly have his druid animal forms (each ofc with more spikes than a regular form) and with bone wings that for no apparant reason generate lift and let you fly!
