    but is now horde, blood elves and high elves are the same race, the difference is political.
    So you're now also saying that a High Elf can't join the Horde, because that would make them a Blood Elf?

    Sorry, but the political difference between the High Elves and Blood Elves was sucking magic from unsafe/living sources, wich abhorred to the High Elves, who then got exiled because they disagreed with the Blood Elven way of doing things.

    The only difference between High Elf and Blood Elf is political allegiance, its like Republican and Democrat. Biologically, they are 99.999% identical except only for the fact that Fel use in Silvermoon caused their eyes to turn green. A blood elf could have Blue eyes if they just weren't present in Quel'thalas during the entirety of the Fel fiasco but the chance of that is not very high.

    But wait, Elves get their eye color based on the magic they absorb, so with the original Sunwell being Arcane their eye colors were predominantly Blue, and when they absorbed Fel magic their eye colors changed to Green. Now, the Sun well now radiates Holy and Arcane energy and if we assume Holy energy to be gold/yellow, then their eye colors would be Blue+Yellow=Green! Green Eyes for the High Elves! Or something.

    But really, right now the Blood Elves are absorbing Divine magic from the Sunwell and it would be safe to assume that over time, the Elves of Quel'thalas will develop Golden eyes. Blue Eyed Elves are only going to be found in Elves that weren't present in Quel'thalas for the whole Art has ordeal, which means they probably lived in Theramore or Stormwind, which means they likely allied with the Alliance, which means they were definitely not cool with the mainland Elves consuming Fel Magic, which means they are probably still with the Alliance.

    But I have a kind of solution thing to this whole deal, if the surviving members of Alleria's party somehow returned to Azeroth then it would make for an interesting origin story for player character High Elves, and could somewhat explain sent physical differences in the case of a new model being used.

    If I remember correctly, fel energy corruption is irreversible. This means that Blood Elves will probably always have those green eyes.

    No they will not, it will slowly fade as far as I know from some blizzard Q&A. However, they may change to something else since the holy (naaru) focus of their well...

    high elves only have blue eyes for game mechanics. high elves lorewise can have blue, white, red, gold, silver, ect ect.

    alleria for example always had green eyes from birth and shes a high elf. holy magic has also been shown to give blue eyes



    and many night elves have golden and silver eyes due to the well of eternity which was pure liquid arcane magic

    fel magic has a very long halflife of many generations.

    considering all of warcraft has been 30 years or so we will never see non fel afflicted elves or new brown orcs in wows lifetime unless a lore reason purifies them of their fel taint

    It's kinda weird that he's riding an Alliance PvP mount too.

    These look amazing, but i feel alot of these could not be playable due to breaking the lore.

    No official source of this though except we conclude that everything about their looks is like that because of WoE. WoE evolved them so we could conclude that way I guess. What we all know for sure is that Night Elves generally have silver eyes for some reason and amber eyes for few.

    I think people overestimate how consistent Blizzard is about eye colour.

    Natural Kaldorei eye colour is silver. Amber eyes are primaly linked to druidic magic: a person born with amber eyes has innate great potential to druidism, though it doesn't mean that the said person wouldn't need to study it. Practicing druidic magic can also turn silver eyes into amber, like what happened to Malfurion. It's also the reason why male Nightelf model has amber eyes, as the majority of Kaldorei males have been druids for the past 10 000 years.

    Well, I am aware of all that.

    cultists give themselves willingly to the scourge. they are also completely human, they just have tattoos.

    tattoos shouldnt be a subrace they should just be part of a tattoo feature in a future customization update

    Sylvanas only recruited the Val'Kyr, but why settle for that? She could recruit the Undead Nerubians, Vargul, Darkfallen, Undead Worgen, Undead Ice Trolls and the countless others of undead races the Scourge has in their ranks.

    (Personally I prefer the ingame Forsaken to only use races that where part of the Alliance of Lordaeron (so Undead Dwarves, Gnomes, Elves) + the Vargul, Val'Kyr and Darkfallen).

    Only the undead ones, as far as I know.
    Hell, why should Sylvanas settle for the undead ones? She could use the Val'Kyr to recruit different Vry'kul tribes!
