    Origin of Night Elves. What's your take on it?

    Well we know very few things but of the information we have we know that they're mutated Dark Trolls and that Elune had a hand in mutating them using the Well of Eternity. (I am right correct?)

    However there are many blanks to be filled in but let's all discuss how you all think what happened. What do you think happened when they were in the transition from Troll to Elf?

    Since we have no canon evidence of how it all went down it's just going to be wishful thinking now.

    I don't think it's cannon that Elune had a hand in it (I think that's just fanfic, don't quote me on it).
    Anyway, I believe the transition happened similar to Pokemon, in that the form just happened over the time of seconds. I'll most likely think differently in a few days, idk.

    She probably did something strange to the Well (We know it was put and made by the Titans but since Elune is considered a true deity then she has some incredible powers herself.) and once they all approached it then the rest would be history.

    The Well of Eternity was a lake of arcane energy right? Clearly she must have had a hand in "spiking" the lake in order to induce genetic mutation.

    Genetic mutation is based being around the power, think of it as a radioactive lake, in time, the generation will change, more quickly and more radically than a normal evolutionary pattern, due to outside influence. I don't believe elune had anything to do with the well changing them, that's just how it worked. same reason we now have high elves and blood elves, they were further transformed by the addiction to magic, as to where the Night elves banned arcane magics.

    While I don't think they have genders they probably have a gender naming pattern.

    Also does Cenarious look like he's half wind-chime to you?

    Elune/A'She are deities worshipped/revered by the Bight Elves/Tauren. Worship of The Light on Azaroth came a bit later with the Sindorei, Humans, Worgen, Dwarves and eventually Gnomes. Of course the Draenei predate even the Trolls as a race but they're not originally from Azaroth.

    They don't but what does that have to do with anything? Elune is a deity; not a Naaru.

    Well Elune did make love to Malorne so I guess Night Elves might have taken that as an ok to you know.

    You asked the question or was curious. I'm only going to assume that Dryads and Keepers are half Night Elves.

    Don't like it at all. Makes the Night Elves look like liars and fools despite being old enough to remember when this change happened. It screws up the timeline royally and they really should just take a few step back and try to make a proper chronology. Malfurion is 15000 years old, Tyrande is 13000, all the big cities wrecked in war of the ancients were well established when they were born. Suddenly trolls? Makes no sense, considering the trolls had to have had their empires toppled by the Night Elves for these massive cities to exist all over pre-sundering Kalimdor. Also Dryads and Keepers looking exactly like Night Elves on their humanoid portions means something too. There's more to the story, Blizz left it open like this so they could possibly get ideas from all the fan brainstorming/debate surrounding it. They can and have changed their official lore at any time.

    Their propaganda teaches them that they are superior, which is bullshit since they are made of flesh. No superiority there.
