    What if elune is a loa?

    we know that the night elves evolved from trolls, we know that trolls can sometime ascend and become loa according to their legends.

    what if elune was one of the first night elves born out of the magics of the well of eternity who became a loa? what if she was originally one of the leaders of the dark trolls and thats why she is so revered and over time she and the ancients became the only loa night elves worshiped (the trolls consider the ancients loa)

    this would also explain why elunes children look like night elves and why the night elves believe she made them in her image.

    She would suck a little less, but still moving from elf god to troll god is little promotion.

    well technically this would make elf gods and troll gods the same thing

    There is big diffrence, being elf-only deity makes her really suck.
    Being deity for other races make's her suck a little less, but hey considering that mortals already handled loa they asses, she would technically be nothing special anymore.
    Tho her being loa (animal god) would explain stag-fetish.

    well loa come in varying degrees of strength, not all loas are the same and they dont all have to be animals

    considering all known trolls worship Loa, it wouldnt be strange that the trolls who became Night elves also worshipped several.
    prehaps Elune is the only one who stuck too them when they changed or prehaps Elune as a Loa got affected by the Well aswell as the trolls who worshipped her.

    on the other hand velen mentioned Elune showed simiralities with the Naaru. so it might be the Loa abandoned the trolls when they transformed and a Naaru started too look over them. though i cant see a Naaru be the case since the Night Elves started a brutish war crushing the troll empires and that isnt Naaru behavior who promote peace.

    Could be. Might have arisen at the same time as the night elves did - if Loa can be born from the spirits of the dead, Elune might've been an early night elf who died and was deified, becoming their patron goddess.

    Her apparently similarity to the naaru could mean that naaru are similar beings.

    Another theory I have re. her connection to the naaru, though, is that the naaru are actually similar to Elune - they were once fragments of a single god-like entity that was shattered, becoming the naaru. This god might've been an entity similar to Elune, hence her similarity to the naaru that were born from it.

    It really wouldn't surprise me at all, considering where they come from.
    But if Elune really is a loa, what would that make of Tauren who worship the other "eye"?

    I doubt Elune is actually the moon. That's more likely an old legend that was passed down. Unless we're also going to believe the story of Malorne jumping so high he got his horns caught in the stars is a literal story.

    Loa or not, she's still a zoophile.

    maybe in the past a group of tauren nomads came across the night elves while hunting and heard about elune

    I think that is about as much as a stretch as Elune being a Naaru.

    It just occurred to me that 3 of the 4 races I hate the most in WoW, all came from the same ancestor race (Night Elves, Blood Elves, and Trolls... with Orcs being the 4th). I use hate, but I really only hate the trolls. I only really dislike Elves and Orcs in WoW.

    Might as well be. Since Blizz has not once, but twice referred to Velen's words about Elune sharing traits with the Naaru, when directly confronted about her nature, I think it can be gathered from that that they haven't yet closed the book on what the hell she actually is. It could even remain an eternal mystery if they don't need to include Elune directly in future storylines.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    YES! I would love this twist in lore! Plus it would explain Witch Doctor as a night elf class brilliantly hehe

    If Elune is a troll who have ascended to god-hood, it would be the biggest, most nasty joke, Blizzzard have EVER played on the treehugging abominations..

    ME LIKE.. PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE LET IT BE SO.....

    Once again, the Loas are basically nature spirits, the equivalents of Aviana and Goldrinn etc. If they're really strong maybe Cenarius. That would be a downgrade for Elune, if anything.

    Don't know why people are so hostile to the idea of Elune being a Naaru anyway. Makes a lot of sense.

    Being a Naaru would be a huge downgrade too.

    Currently, lorewise, Elune is considered a god of sorts. Naaru are not gods, they are energy.. This is partly the reason why Tyrande went ape-shit, when Velen claimed Elune was a Naaru, because it would be a setback for the Nelf belief system..

    However, with my apathy for elves (all kinds) I whole harted supports ANY theory that nerf/downgrade Elune... :-)

    What if ancients and loa are the same things but just named differently by different races just like i hope anshe will be connected to holy light.

    She can be night elves' great ancient and not necessarily a troll thing.
